Hi everyone! The forecast is…brrrrr…looking at this card! A tunnel card using new Memory Box dies. Evergreen Sky Collage is the top layer, next down the Lamplight Tree Collage, next down Tall Fir Collage, next down Small Pine Tree Collage and next down the Cabin Snowglobe. I used the new Snowy Forest 3D Embossing Folder for the background.
I inked up the trees with Evergreen Bough and Pine Needles Distress Oxide Inks and the mini round ink blending tools. I find these easier to keep the ink where I want it. I did mask off a few places with post it tape.
I added a little Memory Box Fairy Sugar Dewdrop glitter glue to the clouds, lamp post, smoke and roofline. I really like this stuff, it’s thinner than the other glitter glues. I squirt out a blob and paint it on… I like having that control and it covers nice.
The JOY sentiment is from the beautiful new stamp set with coordinating dies, Spirit of Christmas. Gorgeous sentiments and images to color! So many cards I want to make! hehe ❤
Ink your cardstock with the same Distress Oxide inks I used on the trees or Taylored Expressions Spearmint cardstock is a great match. I die cut the poppystamps Pointed Rectangle Frames die and added it over the top with Tombow Mono Multi glue.
On the inside I used one of the awesome sentiments from this new poppystamps stamp set, Joyous Christmas Wishes. I love it so much! Beautiful verses for the inside of our cards this year! YAY!
I’m excited to be making Christmas cards!
Have a great rest of the week and thank you so much for stopping by!
p.s. All of the dies I used today are so versatile! Use them alone or with other dies you already own! So many possibilities!

Hi everyone! A thinking of you card today using the NEW Berry Wreath stamp set and coordinating die set. It just made me think of bittersweet!
I stamped with Archival Coffee ink on Memory Box watercolor card, die cut the wreath and colored with Distress Ink Pad Reinkers. I have some palettes I made with the reinkers so I worked with oranges/reds, greens and Vintage Photo for the brown.
I made an A2 cardbase with Taylored Expressions Toffee cardstock and inked the edges with the foam ink blending tool and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.
I mounted the wreath and sentiment with foam tape and tied on some thin jute to add that little bit extra!
I wasn’t careful painting at all… as you can tell! lol I spritzed the wreath with water in an area, then added the ink from a brush, then moved on to the next area. I didn’t worry too much about going outside the lines.
It feels like Fall!
Thanks for clicking over to my blog today! We have three birthdays for grandkids this week so I’m working on birthday cards too. WOW! They grow up fast! ❤ I will try to share the cards here too!
Hi everyone! A paper pieced Inlaid die cut card to share with you today! It sure is hard to cover up a neat background! lol
I started by cutting the Holly die in the gingham pattern paper. There were only 5 or 6 inside pieces to keep track of to place back in! I was surprised! Dave thought that out for us and made it easy! YAY! I die cut in TE Oreo cardstock and placed it in the gingham rectangle, flipped it over, covered it with 2 inch Scor-tape and started piecing in the leaves, berries and branch leaves.
The gingham paper is from the Pebbles Merry Merry Collection from a couple years ago, called Holly Berries 733552. It’s the back side. Maybe you have it in your stash! ❤
I used the dot papers from the NEW Garland Stipes and Dots paper pad from Memory Box. The solid leaves were just some cardstock scraps.
Then I die cut the Memory Box Bubble Circles medium size die three times, glued them together, then punched some circles and glued them on for the berries/bubbles on the circles. I was going to tie jute around the panel and under the sentiment BUT I forgot the plan and taped it to the cardbase so I had to come up with another plan! haha
I like it! lol
The sentiment is from the super fun new Memory Box stamp set Christmas Tiles. I drew around the stamp with a pencil to get the shape and hand cut it out so it’s not perfect but hey, it adds to the charm, right?! haha
It’s an odd size but will still fit in an A7 envelope and mail for one forever stamp!
Thank you for stopping by today! Holler if you have any questions!
p.s. Breanna is coming home today! She’s very weak but we’ll get her fed better and get her stronger to fight this! So thankful! Keep praying for us! We appreciate it so much!
After making the stamp video the other day, I was in the mood to stamp and color this new pumpkin! No great technique or anything… just stamping on MB watercolor card, coloring with Distress Ink Refills (I need to clean off my desk and get out a different coloring medium, lol). I enjoy how the Distress ink refills work for watercolor though and the colors are so nice for this time of year!
I think this pumpkin would make a great shape card or place cards or what else?
For the cardbase, I used TE Sweet Basil cardstock and stamped poppystamps Picnic Plaid stamp on it with TE Sweet Basil Ink.
I didn’t want Halloween words so I used Grateful for our friendship from the Wild Rose Stem stamp set.
This stamp set with the pumpkin has great words for the banner though.
This turned out an odd size but it will still fit in an A6 envelope for a regular forever stamp! YAY!
Thanks for clicking over! We so appreciate all your thoughts and prayers for our family. Breanna is making progress. We’re so happy and so grateful! ❤

Click over to SSS store HERE to see the release and see the stamp set I used to make this Christmas card!
This is the NEW Chunky Christmas stamp set. I stamped on Neenah Solar White cardstock and heat embossed with Ranger Gold Detail Embossing Powder and colored in with Distress Ink Refills and water. Faded Jeans for the blue, Fired Brick for the berries and Peeled Paint for the leaves. The die cut pine branch is from the Christmas Foliage die set.
I used some NEW Memory Box Fairy Sugar glitter glue in Dewdrop, Ruby and Sunlit Gold. The frame is Stitched Rectangles. I skipped a die so I’d get a wider frame when I die cut them.
I think that pretty much covers it… thank you so much for stopping by and enjoy the blog party!
