Memory Box and poppystamps…

I know… too much Christmas but there are so many new dies!!!  I just can’t help myself!  I will try to post some other stuff every other time, ok?!  : )

This is a scene I made by stamping the New Small Forest Pine stamp multiple times.  I used Versafine Olympia  Green ink… love this green.  I stamped three times before reinking.   I did use my stamp a ma jig to keep the trees straight.   I love my stamp a ma jig and my perfect rulers tools!  Yep, I used them too!  Link below and in the side bar and be sure to use the Sparks5% code when ordering!

The sentiment is the NEW Merry and Bright combo stamp, just inked it up with red dye ink and stamped with the stamp a ma jig again too.  Even if the rubber is on the wood straight,  I can still go crooked, so I need that tool! : )

I HAD to have this NEW border die from poppystamps too!  Frozen Border die cut in white card-stock and trimmed to fit the bottom of this A-2 size card.

I kinda got carried away arranging stuff with this New Poinsettia.   It’s pretty though and better IRL.  : ) I love the NEW Curled Ribbons… used them both here and cut them out of silver glitter card-stock.

The NEW from poppystamps Claudette Frame is so pretty!  Cut from white Bazzill texture card-stock.  Cuts like a dream…….

I used one of the NEW Memory Box snowflakes, New Castle Snowflake, cut out of silver glitter card and layered right under the NEW Memory Box Poinsettia Bloom Trio die.  I love the NEW Memory Box Sturdy Stem and Ho Ho Holly dies in the mix too.

The sentiment is the NEW Memory Box Merry Christmas Combo stamp… heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.

Poppystamps Berry Sprig and Garden Sprig dies finish it off!  I think that’s enough dies and stamps for one card, don’t you?!  lol

I posted this last card on the Memory Box blog a while ago but I haven’t gotten it on my blog yet!  So, today’s the day!

I embossed the NEW Flurry Frame stencil by running it through my Big Shot die cutting machine.  Then I inked it with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks and the ink blending tools.  It’s really pretty!

I cut the top from the NEW Merry Christmas to All die, then sorted through my dies to find something to work with it.  Landed on the NEW Hanging Ornaments die,  but I had to cut it apart to make it work in the space.  It turned out great and there you have the light, airy, frosty feel of this card!

I added some snowflake gems and tiny gemstones from Hobby Lobby to finish it off.  I think these are it but can’t tell for sure from the pictures on their site, HERE.  I picked them up in the store.

I used the Perfect Layers Mini tools and Mat for this card too.

That’s it for today!  eek!  Sorry to post so much at once.  I just can’t seem to regulate it very well! lol

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week stamping and creating!

  1. Perfectly beautiful Pam. … Perfect layers, perfect dies, perfect stamps & perfectly put together. These are wonderful … I especially love the blue with the inked embossing folder or maybe it’s the green inked trees … So much beauty all in one post. Love it !!!

  2. Absolutely stunning! You’ve been busy!

  3. Such gorgeousness! All 3 of these beauties. I love that tree card…great shadow stamping. Not sure if this is one of my new purchases from my foray to the shop for the Silhouette class. They had some new dies and I went wild! Then I like that Poinsettia (I’m a sucker for those anyway). And then….oh my #3 is lovely too. You are just too talented with these dies. I want ‘em all! {sigh}. When I list my new ones in the spreadsheet, they renumber, and I am beginning to feel extremely guilty at what kind of outlay these dies represent. You did 3 stupendous cards with these new toys. TFS & Happy week.

  4. Yes, you are correct in saying the poinsettia card is better IRL. You can see all the little leaves and ribbons behind the poinsettia much better. Love the stamping on the tree card. It is gorgeous. The blue card is also better IRL. The colors are more vibrant or I thought so. Thanks for sharing at club and on your blog.

  5. Oh my gosh, just can’t stop looking at these gorgeous cards! You’re really on a roll…love it when you get so creative! These are all wonderful, Pam. Thanks for sharing!

  6. What beautiful cards. I can see you have been a busy lady.

  7. You can never have enough Christmas for me. I’m working on my Christmas stuff as we speak.
    Lovin’ the forest stamp. The frozen border is just beautiful.
    And, you didn’t get carried away. It’s gorgeous!!! I love the sprigs and the poinsettia ROCK’s. The snowflake takes the cake tho’.
    Your background is AWESOME! Love the embossing and the inking. I’m over-the-moon in love with the bulbs.
    All 3 cards are perfect Pam. So very nicely done. Thanks for sharing with us!

  10. I love how you altered the Hanging Ornaments and gave the die a whole new look.

  11. You do know it is August right??? and Christmas is a 4+ months away right wait only 4+ months away – you for sure won’t be burning the late lights to get your cards finished, these are pure beauty and creative talent. Thanks for all the inspiration you send.

That poinsettia card is just amazing! I love all the details! Oh and by the way…. there is no such thing as too much Christmas! ;)

  14. Such pretty stamping of the trees, gives the scene such depth and I just love that border die with it, your poinsettia card is just lovely, all the layering you have under it is so pretty! I love your blue card, the highlighting of the embossing is so soft and pretty and love how you have combined the dies, those gems just set it off beautifully!

  15. OMG, girl, your Christmas cards are absolutely exquisite!!!! I love seeing Christmas cards all year long….need to get started on mine!

  16. Oh these are so pretty! I especially like the last one! I never thought to use a stencil in my Big Shot! I will have to give this a try! Nancee :)
