poppystamps Cottage Window Scene Card…


Hi cardmakers and friends…welcome to my Country Winter Wonderland on a card post today!

I pulled out some scene dies from last year to use with this NEW poppystamps Cottage Window die. The house is from the NEW poppystamps Village Houses die and I embellished the card with the NEW poppystamps Holly Outline die.

This could easy be a Winter thank you card or any occasion card for after Christmas!

I left the holly cut in the die, turned it over and inked it through the holes in the die, similar to stenciling… pouncing and adding color with the mini ink blending tools. Fun to do something a little different.

I stamped the sentiments from the Memory Box Mistletoe Swag stamp set using the Precision Press Advanced Stamping Tool.

For the scene behind the window I used poppystamps Open Hillside and Sloping Hillside dies.  There are so many Memory Box or poppystamps dies that would work though. YES!

The two tree pieces are glued together flat and the house is glued together and then glued to the scene flat.  Then using mounting tape around the window frame I adhered the scene pieces to the window, then I added another layer of mounting tape to the frame to stick it to the A2 cardbase.  It will still go through the mail for one stamp, it’s not to thick. 😀

I added the Holly Outline die cut with mounting tape also, just one layer though.   That’s it!  I really love this! I didn’t spray it all sparkly or frosty but you sure could!  I debated whether to or not! lol  I wish you could see it in person!

Thank you all for stopping by today!  It’s so fun to show and tell!  I hope it inspires you and if you ever want to send me pictures of what you make or link me up if you’re posting, I love to see other’s show and tell too!  I love inspiration!

Take care and have a beautiful, thankful week! I am thankful for you!

poppystamps O Holy Night and Holly Frame and Stencil Card…

Are you singing yet? I’m not out-loud at the moment but I am inside! lol

I started this card by die cutting the NEW poppystamps Holly Frame die in white cardstock and using the stencil that came with the die to color the holly leaves.

I’m really happy with this green!  I used the mini ink blending tools and 3 Distress Ink pads in Evergreen Bough first, Pine Needles second and the last one over the top is Mowed Lawn.  I love this combo and it’s even prettier IRL!  I colored the berries with R27 Copic Sketch marker, then laid the stencil back on and spattered with Heidi Swapp’s Gold spray.

The circle of white cardstock you get when you diecut the frame, I colored with Red Distress ink pads and mini ink blending tools.  I started with Worn Lipstick, then Candy Apple, then Festive Berries, then a little Aged Mahogany around the edges. I love how this combo worked up too!  I spattered it with gold ink also.  I use a dropper to get the gold out of the spray bottle and put a little out on a clear block and brush it off the edge of the block with a paintbrush to spatter the cardstock.

I die cut the NEW poppystamps O Holy Night Flourish die in metallic gold cardstock, just one layer this time.  I did put little pieces of mounting tape under some of the letters though so it wouldn’t fall in.

A pretty card but not real labor intensive either!  YAY!  I just love how it turned out!

I used mounting tape under the holly leaves and cut strips of mounting tape to go around the outside rectangle part of the frame. Then on to the cardbase.  I glued the red piece directly onto the cardbase, it’s not mounted up.

An A2 size card and it should go through the mail great, I like using a larger envelope such as an A6 or 7 to protect the corners.  Still the same price. I love the presentation of it being in the right size envelope though and if I remember, I put it in an A2 envelope first then into the larger one.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I have another Winter scene card going up tomorrow.  Then it’s Thanksgiving with the family and then some Christmas decorating around the house, which I’m sure most of you will be doing too!  YAY!  See you tomorrow!

Memory Box Shining Star Ornament/Tag and poppystamps Whittle Fireplace Card…

Hi everyone! I have a vintage looking ornament or use it as a tag to share first today.

I started by covering a piece of natural cardstock with the NEW Memory Box Twas the Night Wide Washi Tape and then die cutting the piece with the largest star die from the NEW Memory Box Shining Star die set. I die cut another star the same color and glued them together with a gold cord sandwiched between for hanging.

Then I inked it all over with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool. The tape kinda resisted it but it did color it enough to suit me.

I took my Krylon 18K Gold paint pen and went around the edges of the star with it.

I die cut the poppystamps Home For The Holidays wreath die in green cardstock and edged it with the same ink, Added Nuvo Red Berry drops to the berries and when they were dry went back with a little Ranger Christmas Stickles over the top.

I die cut the Memory Box Merry Christmas Noted Script dies from Gold metallic cardstock twice and glued them together.

Glue everything together and then spatter with gold ink.  I used the Heidi Swapp Gold Spray this time. Add a bow!

Next up, a Whittle card…

A few words of encouragement for the season… we need it! lol

I hope this Monday finds you ‘hanging in there’! eek! It’s a busy time of year!

Here I did some die cutting, inking (same gathered twigs Distress ink, it’s always on my desk), a little Copic coloring on the bricks, Nuvo drops on the berries and gluing!  Oh, I masked off the area inside the fireplace and ink blended Black Soot Oxide on the cardbase and spattered it… oops. it got everywhere and you can’t even tell I spattered the area I wanted spattered! lol

Santa’s cute…maybe he’s praying! lol  He’s in a situation!

A smile to start your Monday. A cute card for Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by! I have two more cards done ready to share.  I need to make some birthday cards this week! ok – bye!

poppystamps Holiday Mistletoe and Die Cutting Napkin Technique…

Have you tried the Napkin Die Cutting Technique yet?  I’m still loving it!  You can see Memory Box Dave demoing it HERE in this video.  So fun! Our area stamp club had it’s annual Christmas party Friday and this is the MITI I had them make.  I think they enjoyed it! 😀

So pretty showcased in this new poppystamps Double Scallop Oval die.

I just added the die cut letters for JOY from a MB alphabet set and the festive ribbon and it was done.

The frame is popped up with mounting tape. The leaves have mounting tape behind each one cut to fit.

The only thing I did different than Dave is, I used green cardstock for the back of my mistletoe die cuts.

That’s it for today!  I’m recovering from a card crazy week last week!  I have more ready to share though!  Just need to take pictures!

Keep on truckin’ I mean card makin’!  Hope you all are having a creative month too! With a little shopping thrown in. hehe  I just placed an order…oh my…we tend to inspire each other to shop! lol

Take care and talk again soon!

Memory Box Double Arch Die and Peace Card…

Hi everyone! Making Christmas cards is about the only time I listen to music while I’m making and words always make me think of songs!

I wanted to use the new Memory Box Holly Double Arch Die and ended up revisiting a card I made last year and making it again but adding the Holly and new Mini Vintage Varsity word dies too!

Here’s the card I made last year… funny I posted it almost to the day! Click over to read how I made the scene in the circle.

I love how the Nuvo ‘Red Berry’ Crystal Drops worked for the berries.  It’s not a dark red so I wasn’t sure it’d be red enough.  Since it went over the green of the cardstock, it made it darker!  Just right! I love how glossy it is too.

The word PEACE came from the new Mini Vintage Varsity Peace set and On Earth came from the new Mini Vintage Varsity Christmas set.  I just used the letters I needed from the words. ❤

Late evening, last night, it started snowing!  So pretty and goes right along with my card today

Thank you so much for stopping by!  How’s it going with you and your Christmas card creating?  Have you started yet?  hehe  I have another card to share as soon as I get pictures… It’s nice and bright today!  So glad!

Memory Box Pine Tree Hill Card and Birch Press Design Splendor Bevel Card…

Hi everyone! Happy card Saturday! Can’t say happy winter yet!  whew! lol

I started out making a Distress Oxide background A2 size panel with Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot inks. I used the round foam mini blending tools for this because I put down a pretty heavy layer of each ink.

I let it dry, spattered it with water, spattered it with gold ink, let it dry again and die cut it with the new Memory Box Starry Burst die.

I die cut and embossed the new Memory Box Pine Tree Hill die from Classic Crest 110# cardstock, stamped happy Winter from the Memory Box Winter Greenery clear stamp set, with the We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Advanced Platform… love this set!

I attached the tree panel to the background panel with foam mounting tape.  That’s it!

 

Peace always makes me think blue and night sky-ish!  Here I went with blue glitter cardstock for the panel behind the new Birch Press Design Splendor Bevel Plate and Mini Splendor Bevel Plate sets… glam it up!

Die cut everything in white and then layer it up!

For the Holly, I grabbed a Memory Box die, Antique Holly Label and poppystamps Holly Outline for the berries. Die cut them from glitter cardstock too!

The beautiful Peace die is also new from Birch Press Design, Peace Honey Script.  I can’t wait to use it by cutting the background layer die from a cardstock panel and the word peace mounted on the card base inside the background cut.  Like I did on this card…

 

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be back soon!

Simon Says Stamp Cheer and Joy Release Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends.  I have a fairly simple card to share with you… well, I kept adding things! lol

Today is the new release at Simon Says Stamp… it’s festive and Christmasy for the most part!  I’ll link you up below to what I used.

The new stamp they sent me to show is the background here, Leaves and Berries Cling Mount Stamp.

I gold heat embossed it and then blended on 3 colors of Distress Oxide Ink. Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron and Shaded Lilac.  Weird… the Lilac kinda wiped of when I went over it to get the ink off the heat embossed gold. I barely used any lilac though… good thing! haha I spattered with water drops using the Tim Holtz mister water bottle.

Then I just painted in the leaves and berries with the Gansai Tambi watercolors that I still had out on my desk.  Oh, I stamped on Strathmore 400/Best the brown pad of watercolor paper.

I die cut the panel with SSS Stitched Rectangles.

I embossed in Ranger Detail gold, the background and the sentiment.  ‘Thankful for you’ is from the SSS Autumn Greetings clear stamp set.

I used three small circle cuts from the New Memory Box Stylish Frame Trio die set.  I die cut them in TE Premium cardstock, links below, Candy Corn, Granny Smith and Peapod.

I die cut leaves from the cardstocks too using the New poppystamps Autumn Leaf Set.  Then I added some small enamel dots.

And that’s it!

Check out the new release!  I’ll link below in the linkdeli links below, the first one.  I’m not sure the links in my written post work so I’ll try this.

Thank you for stopping by!
