NEW Memory Box Christmas Release!

Hi everyone!  Excitement is in the air…well…because NEW Christmas stuff to play with!  YAY!

For today’s card I combined three NEW dies with two old dies.

NEW Classic Pair of Ice Skates die…all laced up and hanging on the Large Vintage Sled.

NEW Pine Needle Frame and NEW Alpine Snowflakes because what’s a card without pine and snow?! lol

I used the Curled Holly Branch to embellish the sled.  I cut the holly off the curl. I love the detail on this holly die!

Then I adhered it all to a TE Corn Blue cardstock A2 size panel, then to an A2 size white cardbase.

The only thing I used my favorite thin mounting tape for is the sled.

I did die cut three of the skates and glued them together to make them more like a chipboard piece.

The woodgrain cardstock on the sled is from Memory Box and the woodgrain paper on the sole of the skates is a pattern paper.

A little bit of Gathered Twigs Distress ink brushed on with a mini ink blending tool.

Some TE sugar cube pigment ink brushed on the pine also with a mini ink blending tool.

Birch Press Design Piped Icing Star Merry Christmas Slimline Card…

Hi everyone! Getting festive here on the blog today!  I love this folky Christmas ‘look’!  I’ve never been a cookie decorator but now I can with paper! lol

Die cut the star in TE Toffee Cardstock and ink with Vintage Photo. Die cut the icing in white and copic color the star center border.

Same idea with the new BPD Handwritten Merry Christmas and Outline.

I added holly leaves and berries from the new BPD Herbarium Plate Layer A.  TE Cherry Pop and Sweet Basil cardstocks inked with Vintage Photo ink also.

hmmm…now I’m looking at it and wondering if it needed some fairy glitter glue highlights?! lol

I used the thin mounting tape that I love so well to mount everything to the Cherry Pop panel.

Simon Says Stamp/Memory Box STAMPtember Collaboration!

Welcome to my blog, it’s that time of year! STAMPtember at Simon Says Stamp and a collaboration with Memory Box! I have two cards to share…

The stamp set has beautiful botanical images and sentiments! I hope you will love it too!

Beautiful images to color!  I used Copic Sketch Markers for my cards today. G21, 24, 28, 29 for the greens. R24, 37, 39 for the berries.

There’s a coordinating die for the set also.  I didn’t have it so I used my scan n cut to cut it out.

I always love coloring the reds and greens for Christmas.

I stamped the sentiment with the MISTI and Ranger Archival Black Ink. These stamps stamp beautifully!

Both of my cards are A2 size.

The next card is an Autumn card…

I colored with Copic Sketch Markers again.  I loved coloring these images… very easy open spaces which would work with all coloring mediums. E11, 13, 15, 17, 18, 19 for the flower.  YG91, 93, 95, 97 for the leaves. YR02, YR18, E07 for the berries.

I’ll link up below the other products I used on these two cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by! If you click away, be sure to come back and click through my link again and I’ll get credit at no expense to you!  I appreciate it so much!

Birch Press Design Adornment Santa Card…

Hi everyone!  It’s looking a little festive here today!  A super cute Santa in classic Memory Box style!  I love it!

This is the NEW Adornment Santa die from Birch Press Design.  Die cuts in white, a flesh color and red cardstocks.

I added a couple dies that aren’t available anymore, the holly and the postage frame.  I know we all have a collection though! hoho

Be Merry is heat embossed with white embossing powder and this sentiment from the BPD Contempo Christmas Greetings. There is a circle surrounding it but I didn’t ink it.

HOHOHO is from Poppystamps Marzipan Alphabet die set.

My plaid pattern paper is from Dashing Holiday Memory Box 6×6 paper pad.

My card turned out 4 ½ in x 6 ½ inches so it will fit in an A7 envelope and post for one forever postage stamp!

So happy with this card!  Yay!  I hope you like it too!

Tomorrow night at midnight EST, I’ll have a Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember post with a collaboration!  You can guess with who! lol

Spellbinders Blooming Tree Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die Set Card…

Hi everyone!  I’m feeling festive on this second Friday of August already!  This is such a pretty hot foil plate set! Easy and fast to add some touches of color too!

I used the Plaid Tidings Background Glimmer Hot Foil Plate on the top layer.  While I was deciding what I was going to do for this card, I also just embossed this plate through my machine… it worked great!

After I foiled the Plaid, I die cut one of the Essential Arches Dies in the panel.  I used mounting tape to raise it up on the cardbase.

I hot foiled a sentiment from the Christmas Magic Glimmer Hot Foil Plate set.  I haven’t tried embossing these yet but I want to.  I hope it works!

The smallest die in the Precision Layering Mini Slimline B die set works perfect for cutting out these sentiments! YAY!

A2 size card…one more for the stash!

That’s all there is to it!  Holler if you have any questions!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Spellbinders Ice Skate Christmas Wishes Card…

Hello! Sharing some icy Christmas wishes today!  I know, I know… I don’t wanna think about that yet either!  It’s cooled off a little here but still…humidity means the corn is growing or drying out I guess. 

I loved ice skating when I was growing up.  There was a park in the city that closed a street for sledding and made a pond for ice skating.  My dad would take us a lot during the Winter…so fun!  

I die cut the NEW Ice Skate Etched die from Spellbinders in white cardstock two times.  In a woodgrain pattern paper for the sole and in silver cardstock for the blades. 

I have a bunch of ¼ in. grosgrain ribbon but none in white. boo.  I used the tan and tried not to sweat it! lol 

I used one of the branches from the NEW Winter Evergreen Foliage die set, die cut it 4 times, added some white acrylic molding paste and Memory Box Fairy Sugar Dewdrop liquid glitter glue on the tips of the branches.

Christmas Wishes is from the New Mix and Match Holiday Greetings die set.  I cut it in gold glitter cardstock and white cardstock, glued them together for a little more thickness, then glued directly to the cardbase.

I used the Kaleidoscope Snowflake set again for the three snowflakes. (I used them on the Winter Mailbox a couple posts back)

Almost done but missing that pop of red so I had to cut some ornament balls from the NEW More Holiday Decorations die set. Then I was happy and glued my 5×7 panel to an A7 size white cardbase.  

Die cutting and gluing again! I need to stamp something! lol

Birch Press Design Herbarium Plate and Adornment Dove Card…


I’m back!  I didn’t put the glitter cardstock pads away! 

Another die cut and glue fast and easy card you could mass produce! 

Using the NEW Birch Press Design Herbarium plate Layer A and NEW Adornment Dove dies!

I die cut layer A in the blue green and green.  I had to shim the blue green layer with a folded piece of copy paper to completely cut it (the glitter cardstock is thick) so I knew when I ran the green piece through, it wouldn’t completely cut out the design.  When you layer the green under the blue green it really adds to the depth if it has the design partially cut into it.  I should’ve taken a picture!  I hope that makes sense! 

I added two strips of 2 inch scor-tape on the back of the green layer to make sure all the pieces stayed in it and then I just used that to adhere it to a white A2 cardbase.

I glued the blue green layer over the green layer with Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue.

I die cut the solid backer Adornment Dove die in the champagne-ish color glitter cardstock and the outline Adornment Dove in white glitter cardstock.  

I LOVE that there’s a backer die for this dove!


Die cut the berries with scraps of red glitter cardstock… there are only three sets of berries, so easy to glue in if you put small pieces scro-tape on the back of the blue green layer before adhering it to the green layer. 

Die cut the Peace Honey Script die from red and white glitter cardstock and glue it on.  I used small pieces of mounting tape on the leg of the ‘p’ and behind the ‘c’.

Easy! yay!  Another card done…almost… I didn’t stamp the inside yet!  I’ll be sorry later! haha

Thank you for stopping by to see this.  It’s so pretty IRL.  I wish I was a professional photographer that could capture the true glitter and sparkly of this cardstock! 

I’m thinking this dove could be made into an ornament and even layered on a gift loosely with a tag!  So pretty!

Birch Press Design Christmas Ornament Pop Up Easel Card…

Hi everyone! Welcome to my attempt to show how glittery amazing this glitter cardstock from Memory Box is and how fun to use it with this new BPD release!  I’m sitting here looking at the real card wishing I could just show it to you IRL because it is so sparkly and pretty!!!

This was a fast card to make…all die cutting and so easy with a pad of 6×6 glitter cardstock!

Here it is from the side.  I die cut a white cardstock base with the easel die in the set, then I die cut from the glitter paper and glued it to the white card die cut.  Because of the 6 x 6 size of the glitter cardstock, I had to make it in two pieces.  It worked fine, you really can’t tell it. 

I’m going to say it again… it was so easy to make! lol  Cut and glue!  This would be a great card for a class or a cardmaker get together!

I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the BPD Christmas Ornament and Labels stamp and die set but I couldn’t decide if I wanted on the card for the pictures!  So it’s laying off to the side.  I will glue it on when I send it.

So pretty too… just glam it up!

It could easy be made into an ornament to hang on the tree or a gift tag!

It folds up so nice and will easily fit in an A2 envelope and mail for one postage stamp.

I added a Memory Box Christmas Fairy Drop in red on the bow.  Boom!  Done!  Taking pictures, trying to capture glitter cardstock took longer! 

***Bonus – None of this glitter comes off!!!  Thank you Memory Box! lol

Thank you for visiting today!

Stitched Ornament Merry and Bright Slimline Card…

Hi everyone!  It’s been some time since I used wool felt so I found my box and set to work die cutting and stitching up this new die from Spellbinders Stitched Christmas release.

I meant to make it as an ornament to hang on the tree but once again I forgot the plan and glued it to a card! lol

The pretty branches are part of the die set.

I used Knit Crosheen thread to for my stitching.  Taylored Expressions Tiffany and Avocado wool felt.

I used Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue to adhere the top and bottom avocado felt pieces.

My slimline card size is 3 ⅜ in x 8 ⅜ in.

I used Spellbinders new Mix and Match Holiday Greetings die set for the sentiment. I love this font!  There’s 18 word dies in the set!

Here’s a close up of just the ornament…so pretty!

I wish I could show you this one in person! It’s definitely a card to give to someone that will keep it and get it out for display each Christmas season. 

The tiny pearls are from starlitstudio.

Winter Garden Release Letterbox Card…

Special Delivery!  All the fun things of the season right there!  Snail mail, snowflakes, jingle bells and snow!

I went with a Mini Slimline Card for this one.  I used Spellbinders Precision Layering Mini Slimline A and B sets to cut my layers.  I really like these dies because they are heavier and hold the rectangle shape better than the thin silver ones do. I don’t like it when I die cut layers and they’re wonky!

I tore a piece of white cardstock for the mailbox to stand in (snowdrift) and die cut it with the same layer die as the blue background size.  I used Prize Ribbon Regular Distress Ink to ink up the background this time.  I spattered on some water droplets.  I like to spray water into the palm of my left hand, then I rub both my hands together so they’re both wet, then I clap over the inked background to spatter the water drops. I let it sit a minute, then lay a paper towel over it to get the extra water.

Then I spattered on some diluted white acrylic paint.

I die cut the mailbox post from woodgrain cardstock and the mailbox from silver mirror cardstock.

I die cut the sentiment from gold glitter cardstock and white cardstock, then glued the gold on top of the white.

The jingles bells and ‘garland’ are from the NEW More Holiday Decor die set.  I love how cute the little bow is on the super cute jingle bells I die cut in silver mirror cardstock also.

I love that there’s just enough dimension to add perspective.  It’ll still mail in an envelope for one stamp.

I used the thin mounting tape, I’ll link below, behind the mailbox post and box on this card and yesterdays.

Finished size is 3 ½ in. x 6 ½ in.   So happy to have a start on Christmas cards!  I can’t believe we’re half way through July! I need to get more done!

I’ll be back soon….we have to keep making!

Simon Says Stamp Mini Slimline Snowflake Window Stencil Card…

NEW Release from Simon Says Stamp! I received the NEW Snowflake Stencil and made a clean and simple mini slimline card. This one turned out to be 3 ¼ in x 6 ⅜ in. 

I sprayed the stencil with Pixie Spray glue, adhered it to Canson Smooth Bristol cardstock and inked with Distress Oxide stamp pads and blending brushes. Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid lagoon.

Let it Snow is a newer die from Memory Box, Let it Snow Posh Script, both layers cut from heavy white cardstock. I mounted it to the panel with pieces of mounting tape.

I embellished the snowflakes with Memory Box Clear, self adhesive Fairy Drops.

I love these pretty, sparkly, Winter colors!

I stamped the inside with a newer sentiment clear stamp set from poppystamps, Wintertime Sentiments with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink. Some really fun sentiments in this set. “Thanks for Snow much fun”,  “Happy Winter Wishes to you”, Warm and cozy Winter greetings”, “You are One of a kind”, “Tis the Season to be freezin'”, “The world changes when it Snows”, and more!  

I’ll leave you with one more sentiment from this wonderful stamp set… “Friends warm even the coldest of days”.  I agree!  Thank you for stopping by!

Doodlebug Winter Wonderland Snowglobe Mini Shape Card…

Hi friends and cardmakers!  A little more snow here today so a good day to post a cute little snowglobe card I made for one of our grands birthday.

These super cute images are from the Doodlebug Winter Wonderland stamp set and coordinating die set.

The card looks big in my photos but it’s really only 3 x 3 inches!  ❤  The images are small but so cute and easy to color.  I used Copic sketch markers. The largest snowman is 1 ½ inches tall.

I stamped the snowglobe, colored the base, then die cut another snowglobe for the card back.  Scored the back at the top so it would open…glued it above the score line to the card front.

I love how it turned out… charming! It would be a cute tag too.

Hope it made you smile!  I’m going to link it to the #SnowmenOfJanuary event on social media right now.

Thank you for stopping by!

Memory Box House Frame Background LOVE Birdhouse…

Hi everyone! I pulled out a bunch of dies and designed a Wood Grain LOVE birdhouse.  Valentines Day is coming…it’s hard to believe we’re already into the second week of 2022!

I started by die cutting the MB House Frame Background and the heart opening that comes in this die set.

Then I die cut the window and snow/frosting from the MB Gingerbread House Frame Die set.

I cut the MB Wood Grain Planks one time and used them to put siding on the house frame background. Then I ink blended on some Gathered Twigs Distress ink with the mini blending tool.

Then I glued everything together and wanted a sentiment and a branch!

I cut the branch from the MB Serene Bird and Branch die set and glued it flat to the background panel.

I used the MB Pinpoint Leaf Plate for the background panel.  This panel is larger than an A2 size which I really like!  It’s 4 ½ in. x 5 ¾ in. It will fit in an A6 or A7 envelope and still mail for one postage stamp. I inked the edges of the panel with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini blending tool also. I really like this die!

I added some natural narrow jute before I glued the house down.

I decided the heart opening could be the ‘O’ for the word LOVE.  I decided to use the new poppystamps Marzipan Alphabet Outline and Background stamp set and the coordinating dies.  Super fun alphabet set! ❤

I die cut in white cardsock and stamped the outline in Coffee Ranger Archival Ink.  I just used an acrylic block to stamp… I only had to stamp the L twice. lol 

I like it! YAY! lol  My favorite colors…or I should say my go to colors! haha

Thank you for stopping by today!  Happy cardmaking New Year to you!

Alexandra Renke Holly Branch Die CAS card…

Hi everyone! Glad tidings to you and your kin!  A clean and simple card to share with you today.  I saw a wreath card on Instagram made up like this so I had to try it!

I used the beautiful, elegant Alexandra Renke Holly Branch die and beautiful Memory Box stamps for the sentiments inside and out.

I die cut the holly branch three times, glued them together.  I think I colored the top one before I glued together.  I don’t know that it’d matter.

My pictures aren’t the greatest, I didn’t have time to set up like normal but I wanted to share anyway.

I colored the berries with Copic Sketch Markers R24, 29 and 89.  The little dot is in the die and I just put a dot of white gel pen on it.

I heat embossed the sentiment in Ranger Detail Gold Embossing powder on a strip of red cardstock and die cut it with the long narrow die from the Birch Press Design Contempo Christmas set.

An A2 size card…

Thank you for stopping by today!  I always appreciate your visits and I want to wish you a blessed Christmas. So much to be thankful for.

I just remembered I might be back with the cards I made for the grandkids!  We’ll see how pictures go!  Down to the wire and I haven’t started wrapping yet!  eep!

It’s That Time of Year… Diecember at Simon Says Stamp!

I have a card to share with the die Simon Says Stamp sent to me to make with.  Fine Textured Leaf die, designed by Memory Box. 

You can see the two dies that come in the set off to the sides in the pictures.  I used the smaller one to make the wreath on my card.

I die cut it 11 times in watercolor paper and then painted it with Distress Ink Reinkers.  They look really dark in the pictures, not sure why, but they aren’t this dark IRL. 

I used one of the plaids from Memory Box new 6×6 paper pad called Woodsy Plaids.  

I die cut the Memory Box new Merry Christmas Posh Script in white and colored them with the E 80’s copics.

I die cut the bow with a die from the Sizzix Festive Greens set #662425, a Tim Holtz set. I used watercolor paper again and colored it with a copic B93.

Very non traditional colors… I attempted to add some red.  Couldn’t do it. lol

This wreath would’ve been striking on white if I’d realized how it was going to photograph! and red!

Lots of potential for a million cards with this die set!  Very fun making wreaths! and that big leafy die! 

This card ended up 5 ½ x 5 ½ inches square.

Thank you for stopping by today! I’ll get back to my house… I’ve made a mess getting all the decorations out.  This nine foot tree takes  a lot of stuff! haha

Enjoy this new release!  Lots of beautiful dies!  Here’s to shopping!  Links below.
