Memory Box Playtime Elves, Stitched Circle Trees and Tall Pine card…

Here we go!  Dashing through the snow…this cute little elf is taking a break from all the toy making.  That’s another card coming soon…these cute little elves in the toy shop! 😀 Memory Box and poppystamps have the best tree dies out there!

I die cut a white panel with the next largest Rectangle Basics die then die cut the new Stitched Circle Trees die in the panel.

I sprayed the white die cut panel with Sparkle Shimmer Spray…love this stuff…well, it’s a toss up between the Sparkle and Frost… I love them both.  Just got the Sparkle! lol  The Frost is more ‘clear-ish’ and the Sparkle has a teeny tiny bit of metallic to it.  Both are perfect for Winter cards!

On the white card-base, I ink blended some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink with the mini ink blending tool for the sky.  Then dropped water droplets on by spraying water in the palm of my hand, rubbing my hands together and clapping over where I want the water.  Then I diluted a little white acrylic paint and spattered on some white drops.

I die cut two of the Tall Pine die in white card-stock being sure to keep the little waste pieces in the tree on one because I wanted the white to show through. Then I colored one with Copic Sketch Markers, YG63, 67 and G99. I glued the colored one over the white one and put mounting tape on the back,  cut to fit down the center and behind the little bits of snow left in the tree. I spattered it a little with the white acrylic paint too.

I stamped and die cut the little elf and two trees from the Playtime Elves sets. I like to color after I die cut.  The images are colored with Copic Sketch Markers. A little white gel pen on his hat and cheeks.

I stamped the panel with the sentiments from the Dashing With Reindeer stamp set and the inside with ‘and a happy New Year (from the same set).

Then I thought the new Snowflake Wire die would be fun in the scene too, so I cut it in white card-stock and glued it on the panel, kind of a sledding trail. I had to go buy that die after seeing Sherry Hester’s card using it with the new poinsettia. 😀

Time to layer everything on the card-base…I used mounting tape on the back of the panel, adhered that to the card-base. Glued the two green trees behind the Stitched Circle trees.  Mounted the elf and the tree with mounting tape. I broke down and bought the big roll of ¾ inch wide from SLS.  I think I’ll write inside the roll the month and year and see how long it lasts! lol

Printworks Collection New Friendship Release …

Hi everyone!  I’ve been making Christmas cards for Printworks!  Now I get to show them to you!  If you want to see them all at once, you can, here, here and hereThere are some of my Thanksgiving cards from years past here.

This cute little kitten is called Morris Kitty… isn’t he cute! The convertible is called Muggles Morris!

Well, I just had to make them up Christmas like!  All kittens carry around mistletoe in a convertible at Christmas don’t they?! hoho  They do on cards anyway!

Such cute sentiments too!

I colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Shoot me now, I didn’t write the numbers down.  I always think I’ll remember!  What!  I rarely remember. ugh.

I die cut the panel with one of Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Rectangle dies and the kraft panel with one of the Memory Box Basic Rectangle dies.

 

Funny what you see in pictures and too late!  The cards are already winging their way to be at the convention in California in November.  If you’re going, be sure to stop by the Printworks Collection booth!   Anyway,  I missed coloring the heart in red!  😀

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!

p.s. can’t wait to hear what you love from this release!

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!

Mama Elephant Tiny Heroes birthday card…

Hi everyone!  Back with another birthday card.  This one was for Lizzie Faith who turned to double digits this year!  The Big 10!  Liz is a sweetheart.  Loves to draw, make cards and read!  We have the make cards and reading in common anyway! lol

Lizzie is one out of seven red headed grandchildren.  If you add 2 of our 3 daughters we have 9 red heads in the family.  😀

So this little hero girl had to have red hair.  She’s colored with Copic Sketch markers.

I masked off the white circle and light path, inked the background, then masked to color in the yellow with Distress ink Squeezed Lemonade and an ink blending tool.  I can’t remember what colors I used for the sky!  I know I used the Frost Shimmer Spray on it though and then tapped the bottle to get it to drop the splats.

Lizzie is a kitty lover too.  They have outside cats and seems like they have kittens a couple times a year.  She takes care of them and loves them…she’ll be a good mom some day!  So the kitten hero was perfect for her too!

The skyline is from an Open Studio Memory Box set.

It’s always so fun when you’re trying to get a card made to ‘fit’ a person and you feel you succeed in the end!  You know what I mean, right?!

A Lawn Fawn Jungle Birthday Pop Up Box…

Hello everyone! A wild birthday card for you today!  This is the pop up box card die from Lawn Fawn that is so much fun! I forgot to take pictures of it folded up before I gave it to Gilbert Sunday. ugh.  It truly does fold, lay flat and fit in an A2 size envelope!

So much fun for a little color book therapy and then a chance to use a big piece of that pattern paper hoard!  I should make more of these! I can’t resist buying pattern paper but I have a hard time working it into the card design most of the time.

I used Lawn Fawn’s Wild For You stamp and die sets, Box Card pop up die set, Rectangle die, grass die and the words ‘rawr’ and ‘wish big’ came from the Critters from the Past stamp set. Almost forgot the balloons!  They are from the Bicycle Built for You stamp set.

The images were all stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink in the MISTI stamping tool and then colored with Copic Sketch Markers. Very basic coloring.

The pattern paper is Lawn Fawn’s 12 x 12 size, Perfectly Plaid Rainbow Collection.

Gibby liked it!  YAY…he was so excited for his 5th birthday and he loved his presents too!  It was so hot…they’d been swimming!  lol  He’s just one of our many red heads!  ❤

Memory Box and poppystamps Christmas cards…

Hi everyone!  Back today with two Christmas cards.  New Memory Box and poppystamps dies.  I love the nature-ish theme of both of these cards.  Kinda unusual colors.  Wish you could see them IRL!

I started out with a 4 ¼ in. x 5 ½ in. panel of kraft card-stock and cut the largest layer of the Spectacular Joy die set in it. I inked it a little with Distress Forest Moss and the ink blending tool. The next size smaller Joy is die cut from a piece of Memory Box Cranberry notecard.  The detail Joy die is cut in metallic gold card-stock.

The kraft panel is mounted with foam adhesive tape to an A2 kraft card-base. Then the JOY words are glued in the die cut JOY hole.

The Pine Needle Clearing die is cut from another  kraft panel and inked with Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress inks and the ink blending tools.  I used one half a sheet of copy paper to shim while cutting this Pine Needle die… cut blades up and angle a bit and success!.

Mounting foam tape on the back of this panel too and adhered on top of the JOY panel.  I used the Scotch foam adhesive tape because it is pretty thin, it’ll be in the links below.

That JOY piece that I cut out of the first kraft panel?  I used that as a mask when I spattered the gold spray on. Because of course I didn’t think to do that until after I was done. ugh. lol

I die cut the largest Pointed Rectangle Frames die from Memory Box Cranberry card-stock and glued it on top of the Pine Needle Clearing panel.

The Holly Twig die is cut twice from kraft card-stock and colored with Copic Sketch markers.  I love this Holly Twig die, pretty made up to match any style.

Next up…

 The Dancing Snowflake Oval die cut and embossed in white card-stock and layered over the top of the Tall Pine Oval that is die cut from a Parsley notecard. (I die cut the Tall Pine Oval in white too, left the little pieces in it so when I glued the Parsley cut over the top, it looked like snow in the holes) I did use strips of the Scotch foam mounting tape behind the Snowflake so there’d be just a hint of lift.

I die cut the largest Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die from a Pool note-card, then taped it to a full Pool note-card.

I stamped one of the clear stamps from the Poinsettia Surprise Clear stamp set in the corners with Lawn Fawn Merman ink using the MISTI stamping tool.


I glued on some Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins and the sentiment die Warm Winter Wishes.  It’s two layers of white glued together and a few pieces of foam mounting tape cut thin on the back in a few of the wider places.

Then I sprayed the whole thing with Frosted Sheer Shimmer Spritz. It’s really easy to see IRL.  Hopefully this next picture shows it well.  All my photos enlarge if you click on them.
