poppystamps Whittle Rudolph Pinpoint Shaker Ornament Card and Giveaway Winner!

Hi cardmakers and friends!  Today is the DAY to announce the winner of the NEW Memory Box Sleigh Horse Frame Die from the post, HERE!

DRUMROLL!  CYMBAL CRASH!

The WINNER IS…. comment #29 Shirley Lee with her comment…

Shirley L.

Your card is stunning! I love everything about it, and it reminds me of the days when I lived in Illinois. It always amazes me how you can make a card using all different kinds of dies and put it together beautifully! what creativity! I checked out Cindy’s blog, and she has some great ideas, too. Thanks for sharing this beautiful card.

Thank you Shirley L. and congrats!  I will email you!

I have this cute card to share with you today!  When I saw these NEW Whittle dies from poppystamps I was all over them but I’ve been slow getting them made up! Fortunately there’s still time!  yay!  I started with this super cute Rudolph.  When I found these little snowballs at the Dollar Tree store (everything’s a dollar) I just knew I had to use them in a shaker!

I die cut the NEW poppystamps Pinpoint Shaker Ornament die in Silver Foil/Mirror cardstock first, then in fun foam two times.  Now fun foam stretches when you die cut it so I usually end up clipping out a 1/16th of an inch or so on each side and fitting them back together…not much but enough that it doesn’t hang over the top cut!  I use liquid glue to adhere them together.

Don’t forget to stick in your piece of acetate!  I die cut it with one of the Retro Ornaments dies. Oh, I also cut the ornament backer piece with the Retro Ornaments die.  

I heat embossed the NEW Memory Box Typewriter Holiday Elements background stamp in white, trimmed it to 5 inches square.  Adhered that panel to a 5 ¼ inch square of kraft cardstock that I ink blended the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and the mini ink blending tool. Then that to a 5 ½ inch square white card base.

The poppystamps Stitched Alpine Snowflake Band is 3 die cuts glued together and then glued flat to the card.

Then I decided to glue on some bits I clipped off of a couple die cut poppystamps Shasta Twigs die cuts.  Love that about Christmas…adding green and red bits just makes me happy! lol

Here we are at the inside…I actually remembered to take a picture!!! That’s a miracle! haha

I used the super, super CUTE NEW sentiment set from poppystamps called Merry Everything. You can combine stamps to make really fun expressions AND the die is included in the set!

Everything MERRY

We wish you a MERRY Christmas

Wishing you a MERRY and bright Christmas

Have yourself a MERRY Little Christmas

and more! They’re all separate and some cute small icon stamps too!  I love the little snowflake… I should’ve stamped it here in the inside too!  Oh well, I still can! lol

Thank you for visiting my blog today!  Hope I’ve made you smile or my card has!  At least we know Shirley L. will be smiling! hehe  Thank you again for your support and for commenting on the giveaway post!  I didn’t get everyone replied to ‘cyberly’ but my thoughts were thanking you!  😀

Mama Elephant, poppystamps and Guesting for the CAS Christmas Challenge…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  I’m so excited to post today with the CAS Christmas Challenge!  I won their challenge a few weeks ago with a CAS wreath card and now I get the honor to play along with them as a guest! You are invited to play a long too!

The theme for this month is….

I chose to use one of the super cute Mama Elephant Santa Agenda stamps…the Santa that’s ready to go down the chimney!

He’s so cute!  I stamped him on Copic X-Press It coloring cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, in the MISTI and colored him with Copic Sketch Markers.

I used some white gel pen after I finished coloring to highlight his fur and beard.  TIP: Don’t color with Copics after you use the gel pen because it ruins the nib on your marker!

I die cut the poppystamps Snowy Merry Christmas die three times in white, glued them together, keeping all the pieces on two of the cuts. Then I die cut one time in red.  I stamped a brick stamp with black ink on the red cut, then pieced the red into the top white cut…going for a chimney look!

Everything I used is linked below.

I wanted to put snow or sparkle on the tops of the chimney but I was afraid I would ruin it! So I kept it CAS. haha

I added the small snow flake from the poppystamps Shiny Snowflake die and a red glitter dome.

On the inside I stamped, ’tis the season to be jolly from a Penny Black stamp set.

I sure have been having fun with my stamps and dies!  ‘Tis the season and my favorite time of year to make cards!  I hope you’re inspired to get in the Spirit of Christmas and make cards!  Thank you so much Loll for asking me and to the team for sharing their CAS creativity!

Thanks for stopping by!  If you want to see a fun video of a card I made that I didn’t get posted on my blog yet…click HERE…you can see it even if you don’t have an Instagram account.  I hope to make another and post instructions here soon. It’s super, super cute and FUN!  I am biased about it! HOHOHO

ttul!  (Remember to comment on my Tuesday giveaway post here on the blog, winner announced next week!)

Memory Box Sleigh Horse Frame – Two More Cards…

(click on the photos to see them larger)

I’m back today to share the other two cards I made with the NEW Memory Box Sleigh Horse Frame die!  I had to make another Frame Gatefold card… I like these so much! Easy to make too.

Start with a 4 ¼ inch by 8 ½ inch piece of cardstock.  Score at 2 ⅛ inch in from both ends.

Here it is standing open.  I like to die cut two of the square frames, place one on the inside and one on the front and match up the parts that stick out past the left fold. You can see it in the next picture.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the NEW poppystamps Christmas Time stamp set.

I’m using Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstock… I’ll link below.

I used a Pinpoint Circle Layers die to back the front circle panel… you can kind of see it on the right in the above photo.


The pretty word die cut on the front is the NEW Memory Box Peace Jotted Script die.  I just love the handlettered look of it!

So frosty looking with Ranger Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter on it.  I just put glue on the front, rubbed it around with my finger and sprinkled on the glitter  then tapped it off.

This picture shows you what I die cut out of which cardstock color.  The frame on the front contrasts to the card base but I wanted the inside frame to match the inside this time, so I die cut the inside frame to match the card base.

I colored the sleigh and horse with a black Copic Sketch Marker.

Here’s a flat photo…it’s hard to keep it completely flat to photograph!

 

The next card is A2 size and it is Navy cardstock, not black! Navy always looks black to me in pictures. ugh. (and only two pictures)  😀

I did a Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide background on a circle cut from the Basic Circle die set with a punched circle mask on it for the moon.  I spattered it with water… it looked terrible.  Now I know how to make a circle look like the moon though! haha  Since it was headed for the trash can, I sprayed it with white spray and let it dry to see if I had to start over or not.  When it dried, I decided to go ahead and use it.  It’s better IRL!  😀

Hero Arts has a new white watercolor ink that Cindy is carrying in the store, Starlitstudio.net   I will link to it below, she says it’s great for spattering! Mine will be here Friday!  YAY!

I cut small strips of mounting tape and put them here and there around the back side of the circle frame, mounted it to the ink blended background circle die cut, glued the square frame to the card base, glued the circle to the card base, die cut the snowflake from the New Pinpoint Snowflake Circle Frame and glued it on, stamped a strip of white cardstock with a sentiment from the NEW Typewriter Holiday Sentiments stamp set, applied mounting tape to both ends and stuck it on!  I love the white contrast with the dark blue!

GIVEAWAY and a Memory Box/poppystamps Sleigh Horse Frame Card…

(click to see photos larger)

Hi everyone!  I’m finally back with the giveaway I talked about!  I made one card, then made another and then this one last night!  So I’ll have two or three posts using this die I’m giving away!  yay!

Here it is… the NEW Memory Box Sleigh Horse Frame Die.

For my card today, I mixed it up with some other MB/ps dies…hehe…you knew I would!  I love how easy Dave makes it to do this though!

I threw in the landscape circle from the Memory Box Country Church Frame… I just love how it fit behind the sleigh and glues perfectly behind.

Then I die cut the poppystamps Tree Line Hill die in white (you need two cuts) and green cardstocks.  I layered the white behind the green, then trimmed the trees off the 2nd white cut to have the snow covering the green.  I took a picture so you’d be able to see what I mean. I wanted the green trees on top but I didn’t want the ground to be green.

I die cut the Sleigh Horse Frame die in white cardstock and colored the horse and sleigh with a black Copic Sketch marker.

I die cut the Memory Box Snowy Circle die in blue and glued it to a white card stock circle I cut with a Basic Circles Die set circle.  Then glued that to the back of the scene pieces.

A little dimension you can see here…not too much!  It will still mail easy enough.  This is A2 size but I like to mail in an A6 size envelope so the corners of the card don’t get bent. I put a piece of that really thin packing stuff in too when I use any embellishments.

I lightly inked the edges of the kraft card base with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending tool.

I glued the white square frame directly to the kraft card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the NEW Memory Box Typewriter Holiday Elements stamp set, in black archival ink, in the MISTI stamping tool.

Then I just had to add the greenery!  It just adds the perfect festive touch! The holly sprig is from the Memory Box Elegant holly Double Frame die and the pine branch is from the poppystamps Shasta Twigs die. Three enamel dots and I’m so happy with this card!

 

NOW for the giveaway details!  Cindy from Starlitstudio.net has so generously provided me with a NEW Memory Box Sleigh Horse Frame die to giveaway!  Her fast and friendly service is awesome! She goes the extra mile with a smile! I love her store and you will too.

poppystamps Seed Outline Snowflake and Seed Snowflake Collage Cards…

Hi everyone! Bringing some faux snow your way today! White bits everywhere these days! lol

My first card I used both the NEW poppystamps Seed Snowflake dies…the outline is the big white flake…I cut and glued three together…

Timesaver Tip: I stacked the 3 together first, without glue, and poked the pieces out, all three at the same time!

Then I die cut the Seed Snowflake Collage die in a 110# Solar White card front panel and inked it with Tumbled Glass Oxide in the center and Evergreen Bough Oxide everywhere else.  I love this combo!

I took this picture before assembling because I thought it’d help you see what I inked and where.

The card base is Tumbled Glass Oxide.

Here’s the card assembled…

ok – I finished it and thought, I should spray this with some Frost spray… I like the look of it when the card is in my hand but it sure was hard to get a picture of it!  I spent 3 hours yesterday taking and retaking.  Now that’s dedication or just stupid. sigh.  So moral of the story, don’t spray it if you want to take pictures of it Pam. haha

I love this gorgeous snowflake die.  I saw it made up as an ornament.  I want to do that.

So I had so much fun inking I decided to make a CAS, clean and simple card.  Nothing is clean and simple when I do it! hahahahaha

I mean, I can’t even decide what sentiment to use and what color to stamp the sentiment without deliberating for 30 minutes! lol  I get today’s whiny baby award! lol

‘nother lesson…don’t spatter right after you’ve done water drops.  The spatters hit the water drops and well, they spread! Oh well, I used it anyway…see…nothing’s simple! Go ahead and laugh cuz I am!

I do love Tumbled Glass Oxide…this is on 110# Solar White too.  The sentiment from the NEW poppystamps Art Deco Celebrate Christmas stamp set stamped in the same Tumbled Glass Oxide ink.  I wasn’t sure how it would stamp a sentiment but I am really happy with it.  I did use the MISTI to stamp it.

I colored the snowflake with a Spectrum Noir Clear glitter pen.  I really like how that made it sparkle!  I tried to capture it…

Linking my card to some challenges…

The Merry Christmas Challenge – anything goes

Cards in Envy – Favorite Holiday Card Challenge

Watercooler Wednesday – All About Holidays Challenge

ABC Christmas Challenge – V for very quick

 

My last card was inspired by the word ‘collage’ in the title of the Seed Snowflake Collage die…

I just got the NEW Memory Box That’s Acute stamp and die sets so I had to play!  First I had to try it in a wreath building way and yes the stamp set works for that!

I soon decided I needed trees to go with the Seed Snowflake Collage panel that I’d inked up with Lucky Clover Oxide and Cracked Pistachio Oxide on 110# Solar White.

I already had the ‘peace’ word stamped and layered/glued up, since I didn’t use it on the first card, I loved it here!  It’s from the NEW Memory Box Bold Christmas Greetings stamp and die sets.  I love that it has dies to match!  Oh so pretty! I love all the scripty words!

Then I decided it needed glitter paper behind and a glitter frame…use the piece from cutting the frame behind the collage.

After stamping and layering the trees where I wanted them…it just needed a bit of something!  YES!  a small snowflake hit the spot.

This is my week so far! It’s been really nice and I haven’t even been out to enjoy it…maybe today…I hear some stuff calling my name though! I need a stamp store to walk to! lol

Memory Box Grand Maple Frame Card…

Hi everyone!  I’m sneaking in a Fall card today!  Last Friday our area stamp club had a card party and this is the card I had the gals make. I have the instructions all typed up if you want to email me, I can email them to you. It was a super fun day…there were 12 of us.  I still need to finish a couple of the cards!

This really isn’t complicated to make at all, you just have to remember to put the glue in the right places! Ask me how I know! lol

The NEW Memory Box Grand Maple Frame die is gorgeous! I love how it made up in this Circle Gatefold Type card…kind of interactive…

I die cut the center leaf/circle die in 110# Neenah Solar White cardstock and blended on 3 Distress Oxide ink pad colors, Forest Moss, Ripe Persimmon and Wild Honey. I tried using watercolor paper for this but the spatters seemed to spread too much on it so I went back to regular cardstock.  The spatters are a drop of Gathered Twigs regular Distress ink mixed with a few drops of water and spattered on with a paintbrush.

Adhere the leaf/circle to a matching size Circle Basics die cut from coordinating green cardstock.

The card base is a 4 ¼ in. x 8 ½ in., scored at 2 ⅛ in. in from the length ends. Fold on the scores and crease well.

Cut two of the Frame die and sandwich them in the left ‘gate’ of the card with liquid glue.

Adhere the finished leaf/circle to the right ‘gate’ of the card.

 

On the inside I stamped two sentiment stamps from the poppystamps Autumn Fairies stamp set using Ranger Archival Black ink and the MISTI stamping tool.

This card brought back memories.  Remember years ago when Magenta came out with all the circle and square frame stamps?  We were head over heels for them!  There were several different folds we did with those stamps and this fold was one.  Such a fun presentation!
