Memory Box and poppystamps Christmas!

Hello! This brand spanking new kitty is ready to come to your house to play!  Isn’t it adorable?! We have so many kitty loving grandkids that I need to make a bunch of these! hehe

Snow Kitty is part of the newest release from Memory Box…there are several ‘deep edge’ dies.  These dies work great with paper but will also cut other materials too!

I die cut my kitty from regular card-stock, edged the pieces with Distress Gathered Twigs ink, layered her/him up on pattern paper then adhered to a little brown paper sack.  A stamp pad fits in here perfectly or a die envelope…perfect for gift giving…definitely a wonderful gift card presentation.

yes I love it! lol  Hey, the panel is perfect for an A2 size card too!

I’ll link below to what I used…

Christmas Card Challenges #25

Scrapyland Challenges – Anything Goes (with dies sold in their store)

Then I have a card to share that I copied!  I know… but I loved Dave’s card in this video and had to have this tree die!

I pretty much did everything like he did… Iced Spruced Distress Oxide ink in the background.  I don’t have any bleach so I used the Frost Shimmer spray to splatter on and Nuvo Fresh Snow for the glitter on the trees and snow line.

There you can see the spatters better… I didn’t realize the ink bled from the deer until I started editing the pictures.  The retouch tool wouldn’t let me remove it either, it just did weird things so you’re getting to see it! bummer. hehe

I love deer on cards…not so much in real life… too many deer/car accidents in Iowa. ugh.

Linking up my tree/deer card to some challenges…

Memory Box Wintry Christmas cards…

Two fun & festive cards to share with you today!  I love the ‘wintry’ feel of both of them! Freezin’ season!   hehe

I made a watercolor background with Distress Ink refills…Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire. Spattered on some water and Sparkle Shimmer Spray.

I die cut the Simple Evergreen Frame, Cascade Evergreen Frame, Mountain Evergreen in white card-stock and Home for the Holidays in metallic gold card-stock and glued them, with liquid glue to the card-base in that order.  I checked the frame dies to make sure they were still available but didn’t check the Mountain Evergreen die. ugh.  So I’m linking you to the Marvelous Pine die in the links below.  I think it will be pretty on this card too!

After everything was glued on, I added some glitter domes. I link you to the large one I used on the bottom snowflake but I don’t have a source for the small ones anymore.  You could use small pearls and coat them with Nuvo Snowfall drops…linked them up below.

HLS November Christmas Challenge

CAS Watercolor Card Challenge – Holiday

I couldn’t resist making a Clean and Simple card with this Snowman Heart Collage die.  Sometimes clean makes such a wonderful statement! lol

I die cut the top panel with the largest Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die, then die cut the Snowman Heart Collage die in the panel.  I used 3M thin ¾ inch. mounting tape to mount this panel to my card-base after I wrapped it with a piece of kraft color twine.

I stamped the panel with a sentiment from the Believe in the Magic stamp set  using the MISTI!

The two little holly leaves are from the Holly Collage die. Die cut in white card, colored with Copic Sketch Markers and mounted to the panel with little pieces of mounting tape.

oh yes, the little heart is part of the Snowman Collage die too.  It comes with hat, scarf, carrot nose and buttons dies.

HLS November CAS Challenge – Christmas 

Well, that’s it for today… I have more to blog, it’s just been kinda crazy around here!  eek!  Yesterday the city cut down 3 of our trees in the parking…we live on a corner.  Our poor house feels naked.  Now to figure out new trees.  Found out this morning they have a list of approved trees.  Course what we wanted isn’t approved right now. Insert head banging person. It was so upsetting to see those trees go.  Our house is over 100 yrs old and new trees look so funny but we will plant the biggest ones we can afford!  To bad I can’t just put up paper trees! lol

Thanks for stopping by today! Here’s a link to listen to Christmas music on your computer! http://www1.cbn.com/radio/christmas  I’m enjoying it! Take care!

A Memory Box Matchbox Ornament, Santa’s Workshop!

So excited to share this little matchbox ornament with you!  I love this and already have it hanging where I can enjoy it! hehe

I die cut the matchbox with with pretty heavy card-stock. By the time you get it folded into the box, it’s quite sturdy! yay! This one is 2 ½ in x 3 ½ in.

I punched holes in the top and set eyelets with the cropidile.  I strung ribbon through the holes and tied knots on the inside.

I stamped and cut images from two Memory Box stamp and die sets…Christmas Elves and Dashing with Reindeer,  the Christmas tree is from poppystamps Purrfect Holidays stamp and die sets, the banner is from poppystamps Naughty or Nice stamp and die sets and the sentiment on the banner is a partial stamping from a stamp in the Wintertime Fairies stamp set.

I colored everything with Copic Sketch Markers and added glitter from the Spectrum Noir clear glitter brush pen on the snow, banner and lights.

Here it is hanging…it was hard to get it to quit moving so I could take a picture of it hanging! lol

Hopefully between all these, you can see all the fun details.

I cut part of an 8.5 x 11 piece of white 3 mm thick craft foam in ½ inch strips, covered each side with ½ inch Scor-tape, layered them together, 3 strips thick, 2 strips thick and then I just left one, 3mm thick.  I was able to place the images in the box at different levels then.

The window is the poppystamps Grand Madison Window die that I cut down to fit over the top.

Thanks for stopping by today and letting me share this cute box!  It’s going to be a Fall and Winter of snow-globes, fold cards, matchboxes and all things festive!

Memory Box, poppystamps One Horse Open Sleigh Bridge Card…

Hi everyone!  I’ve been playing with the Bridge card again.  To see how I made this, scroll down to the post before my last post for the pictures and video.  YES!  It folds and fits in an A2 envelope to mail for one US postage stamp!

Three photo sessions and I still didn’t capture the sparkle like I wanted to!  I sprayed this with lots of Shimmer Sparkle spray.  When you hold it to the light…it’s magical!

Click on the pictures and they will enlarge…

I used the oddest colors together for this Distress Oxide background!  I ink blended Iced Spruce and then Lucky Clover!  I know… but I really like it!

All the dies I used are in the links below…here and here are cards I made last year with the House in the Woods die.

Memory Box Sleighing in a Winter Wonderland Bridge Card…

Hi you guys!  I wish you could come over and see this card in real life!!!  I’m so excited to share it with you!

I made a video so I’m not going to cover every detail with text here…

I forgot to say in the video though, that I did a Distress Oxide ink background with Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet and Black Soot on the mail card-base.  Water Splatters and Frost Shimmer Spray splatters on it too!  I love it so much! lol

I used several dies and I cover that in the video and links below because yes, you do need these!  I use these dies over and over… for timeless creations. hehe

LOOK!!!  It folds flat to fit in an A-2 envelope!  So awesome and you don’t really need any embellishing because it’s so stunning on it’s own!

I added sparkle to the roof, trees and flakes but it’s still hard to see.  I used a Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter brush pen.

This last picture is with my iPhone…at night under the Ott lite but oops…photo bombing stuff all around! lol  I love how you can see that one frost circle that looks like a moon?!

My cards for Simon Says Stamp ‘Making Spirits Bright’ Release!

Hello!  Did you hear the excitement in my hello?!  lol  ‘Making’ cards for Christmas gets me ALL excited and giddy with all the new product!  How to make and shop at the same time!  It is hard! lol

When this die arrived in the mail I was so happy this is what SSS sent me!  I love it!  In my first card, I combined it with the RyLynn Snowflake and a sentiment from Inside Holiday Greetings.

I got out some Distress Oxide ink pads and started smooshing.  It’s one of those come back after a layer dries and add another layer.  I just started another card while I was waiting!

I love these dies with the larger outline cut and the intricate word to layer in the outer cut.  I think you know what I mean… whew. lol  I’m not so great at describing things sometimes!  The Distress Oxide layer has the large ‘hole’ cut in it.  I die cut a piece of craft foam with the large die too and adhered it behind so the silver falala would be down in the hole.

I love how festive and non-traditional this turned out!

My next card…well, I love it too!  CAS, white and so sparkly festive!

American Crafts glitter paper…I like it!  It’s a really nice weight and die cuts perfectly!  Here I didn’t use craft foam behind the top layer but you still get enough dimension to show the beauty of the die.

The sentiment is from the Holiday Message Strips stamp set and poppystamps Holly Leaves and Berries dies are all the embellishment this card needed to keep it CAS.

I’m so excited for this release!  You can see all of it HERE at Simon Says Stamp.  What do you think?  I can’t wait to see it all myself! lol  I see some snowmen that need to come to my house!!!  and pine looking something back there!  eek!

Thanks so much for stopping by and listening to me go crazy over Christmas creating!  We are having so much fun, aren’t we stampers?!  I hope you are. If you want to swap Christmas cards, drop me an email! I love getting cards from stampers!

Memory Box Poinsettia Blooms and Holly Collage Christmas card….

Hi everyone! I’ve been excited to try out these new dies! So happy with how festive this turned out.

First I die cut a quarter piece of 8.5 x 11 heavy white card-stock with the largest Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die. I love that it’s the size of an A2 card.

Then I die cut the Holly Collage in the rectangle, more toward the upper left than the center because I planned to place the new Brush Merry Christmas sentiment die toward the bottom right corner.  It is die cut in American Crafts Gold Glitter card-stock.

Then I embossed the Holly Collage in a piece of Memory Box green note-card by running it through the Big Shot with the tan embossing mat, a few 65# card weight shims with the Multi Purpose Platform set up for embossing.  I have videos on embossing under the videos tab under the blog header.

The embossing showed up nicely but I wanted it to be even more so…shows up better for blog posting!  ;D  So I went over the veins in the leaves with a Copic marker.

I die cut Poinsettia Blooms from a Cranberry note card, the little berry branches and center from shiny gold card-stock.  I love these little branches!

I went over the lines in the Poinsettia petals with a Copic maker too.

I love how this poinsettia looks after a little lifting of the petals.  I just glued it to the card in the center of each layer with Tombow Mono Multi glue, it tacks up quick with just the right amount of wiggle room!  One thing I’ve learned over the years of using this liquid glue… do you feel a tip coming?! lol  Don’t stand the glue up…leave it laying down ALL the time.  Also keep the tip cleaned off.  I wipe the end with my fingers every time I use it. The glue just rubs off your finger tips.  I don’t put the lid right back on if I’m going to use it again soon. If the tip is clean, the tip will stay open.  yay!

ok – I’ll shut up and get back to making some more festive cards!  I need to send some too… I am so good about making but terrible about sending. ugh.

Thanks for stopping by and keep on creating!
