Hi and welcome to a post featuring the new paper packs from Memory Box together with Poppy's new holiday dies.

Have you visited the shop lately? So many new stamps & dies, and one of them, Christmas Quotes, comes with 4 matching dies. The die shapes fit well with one of the papers included in Dashing Holiday Paper Pack, that can be used for sentiments.

I've combined one of the packs' plaids with Shimmering cardstock, and a die cut of Stained Glass Snowflake, also cut from some glitter cardstock.

All the glittery accents add such a festive feel to holiday cards!

Stained Glass Angel

Hi there crafty friends! Today I am sharing on the blog another holiday card from the new release.  This card is using the new Stained Glass Angel die.  To start, you will first need to create your background layer. Sponge on Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink onto a 3.5 inch x 4.5 inch piece of white cardstock.

D828C072-EFEF-44C7-A130-22B55BAD8BEC-C28E9B81-BA6C-47BA-AFB0-F36C6D5058A0

Add some water splatters then dry off the splatters with a piece of paper towel. Next add some white paint splatters using a whait craft paint, water and a paint brush. 

A9883782-8955-463B-965B-78D0BF25BD06-29A3E340-00EC-4427-B0F1-0D0F93180624

Now die cut the stained glass angel image from the die 3 times using white, silver and gold card stock. From the white card stock piece, you will only need the angel pieces from the die. From the gold card stock, you will only need to save the halo. You will use the entire frame outline of the image from the silver card stock.

Next die cut a 4.25 x 5.5. inch silver stitched border frame using the Stitched Rectangle Trimmings die from Memory Box. 

To assemble your card, first add the silver trimmings border to a white card base using liquid adhesive. Next adhere your stained glass angle frame to your distress inked background with your choice of adhesive. I find spray adhesive works well on intricate frame pieces such as this one.

Now paper piece your angel together using the die cut white and gold angle and halo pieces. Next adhere your focal image to the center of your card using some 3M foam tape. Finally stamp your sentiment from the new Christmas quotes sentiment set and pop that sentiment onto the card with foam tape.

I hope you all have enjoyed today's project and found inspiration. Until next time, happy crafting!

Brick House Easel Card
by Sue McRae

20200822_115816c

Happy Monday crafters! I’m joining you today with a charming little scene on an easel card.

20200822_115752c

There’s lots of die cutting on this card but it’s easy to put together. The hardest part was choosing the colour scheme.

DSCN0489c

I started by die cutting my easel piece which is from the new Porch Pop Up Easel Set. The die set is meant for a front porch scene but I used only the two dies that create the card base and added other dies from my stash to make my own scene. This makes your easel card design possibilities, endless!

20200822_115309c

For the background of the card front I used some happy yellow patterned paper and added a grass border to the bottom of the panel.

20200822_115230c

I took the Proper Brick House and die cut it several times from different shades of teal card stock and assembled the house and I added a red door for a pop of bold colour.

20200822_115257c

The trees were die cut 3 times from white card stock and once from green card stock from the new Frosted Glitter Pad. I layered these all together to create thicker trees.

20200822_115526c

I die cut some small flowers from the Floral Cluster in yellow and red card stock and added them below the windows and used the Whittle Cloud as smoke from the chimney.

20200822_115331c

I think this card could be used for many occasions and would also be great for a guy so I left the sentiment on the inside simple with Just A Note stamped on a Colwell Label. This label die cut is what helps to keep the card in the easel position but it will mail flat in an A2 envelope. No extra postage needed!

Thanks for visiting with me today and have a great week!

Washi Leafy Garden Border
by Sue McRae

DSCN0193c

Happy Monday crafters! Today I’m using some of Poppystamps wide washi tape for my card design.

I started by taking some of the Cornelia Variegated Wide Washi Tape (this washi tape is available in 3 colours and two widths) and adhering it to white cardstock for die cutting.

DSCN0186c

I die cut the Leafy Garden Border from this and also from a piece of purple card stock.I wanted a shadow effect behind the washi layer so that it popped more from the background. I did this by gluing the washi piece slightly offset from the purple layer.

DSCN0195c

To continue with the purple theme, I die cut the Luscious Script Wishes from watercolour paper and applied a wash of Distress Ink in Wilted Violet, leaving the bottom of the die cut dark and lightening it as I worked up the die cut. Very quick and easy to do!

DSCN0182c

The birthday sentiment was white heat embossed on black cardstock and I die cut the butterfly from the Memory Box Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad.

This was a quick card to put together thanks to the washi tape and am using it more and more in my card making, especially when I need a last minute card.

Thanks for visiting with me today and happy crafting!

Garden Variety Release Blog Blitz
by Sue McRae

IMG_1597c

Welcome to another day of our Garden Variety Blog Blitz! Hope you’ve been enjoying all the amazing projects created by the design team!

I’m showcasing the Flora Bloom Solid Set which includes 5 dies. I only used the 2nd largest die on my card today. I die cut the bloom from white card stock, placed the new Whittle Spinner Background Die on top of the die cut and sent it back through my die cutting machine so it could add the swirly cut line design into the flower. I really love how this looks.

IMG_1576c

Next I took Distress Inks to add colour to the flower. I spritzed the flower with Perfect Pearls for some added shimmer and added gems to the flower centre.

I cut a piece of patterned paper from the new Garden Folly paper pack and adhered it to my card base and stamped my sentiment. I added a frame from white card stock using the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames set, added my flower and tucked in the new Adriana Small Curve Border behind it. I finished off with a butterfly from the Intricate Cut Butterflies set.
