poppystamps Winter Porch Pop Up Easel Card…

Welcome to my paper house home today!  See all the sparkly Christmas trees on display!

I had so much fun creating this home with this new poppy die set, Winter Porch Pop Up Easel Set!

Just die cut all the pieces in the colors you want and layer them up.  I used mounting tape for the top layer because I wanted the trees behind the windows. The trees are the new poppy Evergreen Trio die cut in glitter cardstock.

I used the new poppy Snowy Merry Christmas cut in Green cardstock and embossed the snow with white powder. I used a Versamark pen to get the powder to stick to the snow.  The door knob is a tiny brad but it could be a small enamel dot, gem or make your own with black Nuvo drops.

This is one time I liked the embossing powder static! lol  I melted the first time, then while it was hot, stuck it back in the powder for a second and third time to get a deeper snow pile.

The card folds down to fit in an envelope.  It is A2 size but I will use a larger size envelope to mail and have it hand cancelled.

The card folded up but standing for the photo.

Did you notice the new Memory Box Vintage Sled die?  Pretty cool… separate die to cut the slats and steering wood!

For the porch and sled holly and berries, I used the clipped ends of die cuts from the Memory Box Holly Double Arch die set. Fairy Sugar on the roof snow.

Here it is flat, ready to go in the envelope.  Oh, the snow on the bottom of the siding is from the snow die in the Winter House Pop Up Easel Set. I used the roof line and trimmed it down.

I wish I could run across the street and show you this card in real life!  Something the receiver will treasure I’m sure.  I know I would if someone sent it to me!  So have fun making these and sharing your love of papercrafting!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Holler if you have any questions and share your cards with me too!

poppystamps Bird House Pop Up Easel Card…

Hi everyone!  Yesterday while two of our granddaughters were here making cards, I started this NEW Bird House Pop Up Easel card. After supper and this morning I had to finish it and take pictures.

In my excitement to share it, I forgot the plan!  I meant to put the new Memory Box Fairy Sugar Dewdrop on the snow! lol  I will add it to the snow and berries on my card before I send it.

I have a lot of pictures to throw in this post.  This is a super well thought out die set and goes together easily!

The only other die I used is the poppy Garden Leaves and Berries die. I die cut them in white cardstock and colored them with Copics to embellish the base sentiment.

I die cut the birdhouse piece in white cardstock and inked it with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink to give it an old birdhouse feel.  I edged all the pieces with the same ink.  Next time I will use Gathered Twigs though, that’s what I usually use with kraft.  Vintage Photo was already out. lol

The cardinal die has embossed markings where the black piece and beak are.  I just die cut it in red, a scrap of black and a scrap of gold, then trimmed out the black and gold and glued them on.

Here it is from the front again…

Here it is from the side…

Here it is flat, ready to go in the envelope…

Here I’m showing how easily it will fit into an A2 size envelope.

A perfect gift that can be mailed with one forever stamp but treasured for years because of this easel fun fold!

I want to play with it and jazz it up some more! lol This was going to just be my prototype but I ended up carrying on and finishing it, well, except for the Fairy Sugar!  ugh. lol

I’m also thinking it will make super cute ornaments!  I’m all about Christmas tree ornaments. lol

Thanks for clicking over and holler if you have any questions!

Two Cards with Memory Box NEW Christmas Dies…

Merry Christmas in plaids!  Have you seen this new 6×6 Christmas Plaid pattern paper pad from Memory Box?  Some beautiful plaids with gold accents! I used two of the designs for my cards today.

I love the masculine feel of these two cards and especially this one.  I die cut the Pointed Pine Needle Frame three times, glued them together and then over the top of the the plaid pattern that I die cut with a matching size from the Memory Box Rectangle Basics set.

I die cut the Bazzill Gummy Worms cardbase with the Memory Box Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out die set. Then placed the Pine Needle frame in the cut out area.  I used Wrapped Stitched Rectangle dies on the back side, inside of the cardbase.

I added several small gold pearls just to bling it up a bit.

The NEW Memory Box Special Merry Christmas is die cut from gold Metallic cardstock.

Inside…Memory Box NEW Pointy Pine Needle Sprigs and sentiment from the MB Holiday Greenery clear stamp set.

Next card…

 

Have you been looking for an awesome Pinecone die?  Well, here it is and it’s so easy to put together!  The NEW Memory Box Pinecone Stackers die.

I die cut the pine cones in TE Toffee Cardstock.  I left them in the die and embossed the holes with a stylus and inked through the same holes with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the foam blending tool, using the die like a stencil.

When I took the pieces out of the die, I inked the edges with the same Distress ink and tool.

But, there’s NEW Glitter glue from Memory Box called Fairy Sugar!  Four beautiful holiday colors!  So I had to glam up the pinecones with the NEW Sunlit Gold Fairy Sugar!  ❤

I die cut the Forest Pine Branch in Toffee cardstock also and colored it with Copics, then added the NEW Dewdrop Fairy Sugar to the Pine Branches!  I really like this stuff.  It’s thinner and easy to spread and dries up so pretty!

I wanted to use a different sentiment die so I got out last years Merry Christmas Noted Script die and cut it in Metallic Gold cardstock.

I used the Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out die again for the panel that I put on a metallic gold cardbase.  I’m getting a lot of mileage out of the Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out die set. ❤

Both cards today are A2 size.  So happy with how these turned out. Check out the new release!  I’m going to do a few poppystamps dies next.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I haven’t been able to reply to comments lately with all the card picture taking and editing… just so you know, I thank you and appreciate them very much!  It makes my day and makes me smile!

Memory Box Snowmen Snowglobe and Snowglobe Backer…

I’m back with two more snowglobe tags/ornaments!  These two are glitteriffic and SO CUTE!

I took a phone picture with my hand in it so you’d get an idea of the size of these delightful things!

Pictures do not do them justice… they are just so cute!

I used all four of the new dies for this Snowman one.

Close up of the snowgirl!  I used the Santa hat and ear muffs for her… colored the glitter card with Copics.

I grabbed what I thought was a clear glaze pen and colored over some of the pieces only to find out when they dried it was the white glaze pen! lol  It left them looking snowy and I used them anyway.  I used a black glaze pen on Frosty’s hat.

Close up of Frosty snowguy! Such personality!

Close up of the layers…

The NEW Glitter pads from Memory Box are SO beautiful and die cut wonderfully!  I die cut with blades up and one printer paper shim on top of the cutting plate when I ran through my Big Shot.

Next up, the penguin takes the show.  He’s from the Snowglobe Backer die. Now that I look at my pictures, I wish I’d put some text on this one… like ‘let it snow’!  I think I will do that! ❤  Or a teeny heart on his chest… oh my… why do the ideas come after pictures! ha

I copic colored his feet and nose…his eyes are little black gems…his body and hat are glitter cardstock and his black outline body is black cardstock colored with a black glaze pen.

I used all four dies again for the layers…silver glitter cardstock.

I just realized I haven’t written in the finished size yet!  They are all 3 inches wide and 4 ⅛ inches tall.  So adorable!

I’m excited to see how they sparkle hanging on the Christmas tree!

A closer look at the layers again…

A lot of pictures today…hope they all loaded for you and you get the idea of how special they are! A keepsake to get out every year!

I’ll link up everything below…thank you for shopping through my links.  I really appreciate it.

I changed to paying for my blog awhile back so I don’t have other advertisements in my posts…that should really help if you’re looking at my blog on your phone.  I also have to pay monthly for the link up service for products I use and it takes so much time to take pictures, write posts and make product lists.  So I’m here working for you!

More to come…Christmas is my favorite and it’s August already my dear cardmaking friends!  EEK!  Don’t panic, don’t panic. lol

I’ll be back soon with more sparkle and shine! ❤

Memory Box Snowglobe Backer, Radiant Snowglobe and Cabin Snowglobe…

Hi everyone!  Back with #2 in the Snowglobe series with these new dies.  Look at this cute deer…such personality! lol The beautiful sky…pretty trees… I love it so much!

I have a lot of pictures of this one… showing the layers …

I die cut the trees from scraps of TE Pea Pod cardstock and glued them on top of the TE Toffee cardstock Radiant Snowglobe die cut.

I die cut the Cabin Snowglobe die twice, once in woodgrain and once in Toffee.  I cut the trees off the woodgrain die cut.

I die cut a little piece of TE Pineapple cardstock to get the stock… I used a ⅝ in. circle punch. A winter day without snow!  We have a lot of those in Iowa. hehe

Here’s the back… I just use scotch tape to tape it in because the backer die cuts it out.  On the inside the Radiant Snowglobe die cut in TE Sprinkles cardstock, covers up the tape.

So sweet… I love how these hang!

From the side again. I folded these forward at the score lines instead of backwards like the snowglobe I posted yesterday.

So be sure to click home and scroll down to see my two previous posts.  The first is a video showing how they go together so easily!

Holler if you have any questions!

Thanks for clicking over and I’ll be back with two more!  I might put both of them in one post. hehe  I have two cards ready to post too… I hope you don’t get tired of me! lol

Memory Box NEW Snowglobe Dies and Sales!

Hi everyone!  I’m so happy to start sharing Christmas creations with the NEW Memory Box and poppystamps release!!!

I love snowglobes and I have 4 ready to share.  I was going to put them all in one post but I got to thinking it might be confusing so I think I’ll do them one at a time.  Rest assured, you will want all four of the dies though. hehe

I want to escape to here! The roaring fire, the peaceful snowfall… my soul says yes!

The blog post right before this one, I posted a video on how these dies go together…click HOME and scroll down to see the video in the previous post.  Very easy to put together!

Here’s how I put this together…

*die cut the Snowglobe Backer die in heavy white cardstock

*die cut the Snowmen Snowglobe in heavy white and TE Blue Corn cardstock (back layer)

*stamp and heat emboss in white embossing powder the Birch Press Design Celestial Waves stamp that looks like snow on the Blue Corn sky, then inlay the sky into the white Snowmen background die cut

*die cut the Radiant Snowglobe die in heavy white cardstock, I just used the frame part (middle layer)

*die cut the Cabin Snowglobe die in heavy white cardstock (top layer)

*die cut the cabin from TE Toffee cardstock and the snow from Memory Box glitter cardstock pad

*die cut the smoke from a piece of vellum

*hand cut a square of vellum to go behind the cabin and color it yellow on the backside to mimic light in the windows of the cabin

*I die cut the cabin in TE Cherry Pop to get the door and the chimney

*I die cut Santa and his reindeer in shiny black cardstock, if you don’t have that, you could heat emboss it with black embossing powder or color it with a black glaze pen or cover it with glossy accents to get a shiny die cut

I use a piece of  ⅝  inch scor-tape on the inside bottom of the Snowglobe Backer die cut. That holds each layer in place.

I’m so happy with how this turned out!  Perfect little gift, or tag or I can see these all over the Christmas tree as ornaments!

Thank you for clicking over and I’ll be back with the other three I’ve made so far.  ❤
