Concord & 9th Ornamental Card and Stamplorations A Child is Born Card…

Hi cardmakers! I’m making more cards then I’m getting blogged so I need to step up my act!

This card is using Concord & 9th’s Ornamental die set… I love the detail in the cuts and that the pieces can be used individually!   First I had to use it all in one! lol (Pattern paper is My Minds Eye, Comfort and Joy, Evergreen and Holly, from last yer)

Very straight forward card and flat for mailing. If you don’t want to mail for square card postage (2 oz. stamp) use one of those gold 6×9 envelopes for one forever postage stamp!

For a few years when I colored all the time, all my cards were square… I got creative with mailing. hehe

Another, yes I can mail this CAS card.  Stamping and die cutting all in one card! lol

I stamped with a Hero Arts Ombre stamp pad in the MISTI so I could ink it a couple times.

Then I die cut the stamped panel with a nativity die and used thin ¾ in. mounting tape that I cut pieces to fit behind the die cut.

I love this look…hoping to find some more stamps and dies to try it with.

Thanks for stopping by today! Click over to Instagram if you want to see one of our new trains! hehe  Link over in the sidebar too.  Grandson Henry emailed me last night and said, make a video and send it to my mom so she can see how fast it goes! So  shared it on IG too. We’ve had trains before but they wear out! Two out of three worn out so we replaced two this year. Kind of memory trains…my Dad worked for the Chicago Northwestern RR, so both of these new ones are CNW trains.  I was so excited to find them and share a little about my Dad with our grands. 😀

Links to what I used to make these two cards!

Memory Box Enchanted Snowglobe Card…

Hi everyone!  What a fun die set!  This is the new Deep Edge Enchanted Snowglobe die set from Memory Box. You can easily cut fabric and other materials with these deep edge dies!  Cool…I used to sew all the time but now I’m thankful for all these stitched dies so I can just have the ‘faux’ stitching! lol  So, I didn’t go get any fabric out to make this! But..you sure could!  or felt would be so cool too!

I had a watercolor background that didn’t get tossed (regular Distress Ink, Salty Ocean). I added some embossing powder white snowflakes with a Versamark pen and Ranger Detail embossing powder. Yes the dots are too big for the perspective of the house and trees but we’ll just use the artistic license this time. hehe

I love how the ‘s’ on the sentiment die makes the smoke coming from the chimney too!

The Copic Sketch Markers I used on the darker tall trees are G43 and 46, the short, wide trees are YG41 and 45. The door is R46, the window is Y18 and the roof is N3, 4, 5.

The other dies I used are in the shopping links below…

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you’re having lots of fun making stuff! It’s in the 30’s here today and dreary…trying to rain or snow?  I’m ready for sun or snow…something bright! haha  Glad I’m easily distracted by dies, stamps and paper! 😀

Simon Says Stamp Diecember Picture Book Secret Penguin Card…

Good Morning! It’s hard to believe we’ve hit Diecember already! It’s here with all the glory of the season! I am delighted to share a card I made with Simon Says Stamp’s new Picture Book Secret Penguin. He’s giving Santa some competition with his cuteness!

I used SSS Stitched Slopes and Hills to give him some snow to stand in. The sentiments are from SSS Sending and Wishing stamp set.

I couldn’t resist using these cute Doodlebug Candy Cane Shape Sprinkles with him, Doodlebug Heart Assortment Sprinkles, oh and that Jolee’s Boutique Santa Hat sticker.

The background is Distress Oxide inks, Salty Ocean and a little bit of Faded Jeans around the perimeter. Spattered it with water…sprayed a puddle into my hand, rub my hands together and then clap them over the piece to get the different size splotches. I did it a few times on this one.

Then I spattered it with Distress Picket Fence Acrylic Paint, diluted with a little water and a small liner paint brush.

Click over to see all the new products from SSS for Diecember! Several things I love!  eek!  😀

Happy creating, shopping, holiday prep to you!  Thanks for stopping by!  Links below to what I used!

I appreciate you stopping by!  I’m hurrying again. We just installed a hardwood floor in our 2nd floor hallway…27 ft long. eek!  So excited(except for all the sanding dust!) but of course we have to drive an hour and 40 minutes to buy the finish because we want it NOW!  lol ugh.  😀  Our house is over 100 yrs old so this was quite challenging. It was still the original flooring!  Black linoleum with a cream color inlay frame and a beautiful wool rug inside the frame. I hate to see the old go…I loved that rug but it was so worn in all the doorways, etc… it was time to part with it. sigh.  Have a good rest of the week!

Memory Box Deep Edge Dies – Wonderland Snowman and Wintry Snowflakes…


Hi everyone!  It was a really nice Thanksgiving here yesterday!  Beautiful weather today too!  Yay!  A good day to be shopping. haha  True my snow guy would melt here!

A little pattern paper play on my jolly marshmallow dude today.  Otherwise he’s all card-stock and won’t melt!

The new Deep Edge dies will cut up to 6 layers of fabric at once if you like changing up your die cutting from paper!  WOW!  Super fun!  Here’s a video by Dave, Memory Box owner showing how to use these dies with fabric and card-stock.

I used the largest rectangle from the new Wrapped Scalloped Rectangles die set too.

This cute snowman comes with a die that cuts 5 snowballs too… so I stuck one in his hand but you could make a fort if you wanted to! lol  I used some Nuvo Fresh Snowfall to glam it up.

My next card is made with the new Wintry Snowflakes Deep Edge die set.

I die cut all the flakes and because they aren’t solid metal you can emboss them to get more dimension!  I love that!  So I just cut them in white and glued them (just in the centers) to a white card-base.

I wanted to keep it CAS looking so I just die cut the poppystamps Spectacular Joy die set in Silver and Gold metallic card-stock. Just enough dimension to embellish these flakes!

Some skinny gold card tied across the top and the front is done! A Clean and Simple card to wish you all the joys of the season!

Links below and a little shopping info. Happy Plaid Friday!  (that’s what the shops uptown here are calling it!) lol  Thanks so much for visiting and clicking through my links!  I appreciate it so much!

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.
