Warm and Cozy
by Michele K. Henderson

Hello Friends!

It's a chilly one out there tonight, but lucky for us, we've got a warm and cozy home from Poppystamps to snuggle up in! Tiny little bricks and trees make The Proper Brick House feel just like home. Take a look!

IMG_3412-wm

I started with a dark blue background and added a little snowy yard. Then I cut Proper Brick House out of crisp white cardstock.

I placed a brick red panel on the back, then cut the roof out of a dark slate grey, and the window panels in yellow. I carefully glued all the tiny windows in place, and then glued the door frame, steps, and window tops in white.

I cut green Evergreen Trio trees, and a black tree from Snowman and Trees, and glued them in the yard. Then I cut the house again in a reddish brownish piece I found in my scrap box, and carefully added a few select brown bricks here and there. It's the proper place for a cozy fire and a good book on a chilly Winter's night.

Cabin Snowglobe
by Sue McRae

20211201_132908c

Hello everyone, Sue here with a card using the Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Easel Die Set. This is such a wonderful set for creating charming Christmas, winter, or anytime of the year cards. It’s perfect for making masculine cards, which I know can be difficult to create.

I went with a frosty look in blues, pinks and purples for my design. For the background I inked up the circle die cut with Distress Inks and sprayed it heavily with Perfect Pearls for lots of shimmer.

To create a swirly, windy sky I embossed this piece with the Waves 3D Embossing Folder. Love how it turned out!

I die cut all my different scene pieces with a variety of Memory Box coloured and glitter cardstock.

For the snowglobe base I used the White Woodgrain Paper and ink blended some gray on top.

You can really play around with all the layers and add foam adhesive to create depth and dimension. I added foam dots between the house and yellow window background for some nice shadows.

The great thing about this popup card, is that it fits into an A2 envelope, even with all the layers and added dimension.

I stamped a simple sentiment on the inside of the card so that there’s lots of room for adding a personal message.

Just think how different this card would look for spring with grass instead of snow, some added flowers and blooming trees and a bright sky inked in yellow and orange.

Thanks for visiting with me on the blog today!

Snowy Home Holiday
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_3339-wm

Hello Friends!

Today I am sharing a bright, cheerful Snowy Home Holiday card created with one of my very favorite dies from the new release, Winter House Pop Up Easel Set. Take a look!

IMG_3335-wm

As with all of our beautiful Pop Up Easel sets, the details are what makes these cards shine. Tiny little sills and frames, the snow piled on the windows and roof, and the triangle shaped dormers make this little house pop off the page. No matter how you design your own little house, it will be a holiday original!

IMG_3329-wm

Once I had my Pop Up easel panel cut, I cut out all of the parts for my house, all the windows, frames, dormers, door, porch, and the glittery snow. I also cut our some greenery from Floral Cluster, and a few trees from Evergreen Trio.

 

IMG_3331-wm

I cut out a panel from some frosty vellum paper that had thin swirly white lines on it, and adhered it directly behind the windows. Then I added a tiny little Evergreen Trio tree in one of the windows as a little surprise. Did you see it?

IMG_3336-wm

I added a few trees out front, and then cut out a few green leaves to make a holiday greenery arrangement on the front door. There's no place like home for the holidays!

Thank you so much for joining us today!

Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0032

Good Saturday Morning Friends! I have some bright holiday inspiration for you the weekend before Thanksgiving, and it's a Christmas Snowglobe!

DSC_0040_wm

While perusing Pinterest, I came across a color scheme I just loved! The designer (Wanda Guess) chose bright pastels, and the effect was stunning. I'm sharing those colors with you today. Aqua, baby pink and a touch of darker pink. 

DSC_0023

I die cut all the pieces for my Pop Up card and played with the placement of all the elements. You'll see I didn't use all the pieces.

DSC_0028_wm

The finished Pop Up Easel card fits nicely in an A2 sized envelope, when folded down.

DSC_0037

My inside message and a few of the leftover die cuts. Note the raised stop at the bottom that catches the pop up front of the card.

DSC_0031

And here's a closeup of the details, doubled sentiment and snowflake make those elements stand out. And, 'lighted' windows in the cabins.

I hope you're enjoying this most precious of seasons, and hope you give this color scheme a try. Making it a crafty weekend always makes it a happy one!

Gingerbread Snowglobe
by Janet Katz

Gingerbread2 with sig
How could I resist combining a snowglobe with a gingerbread house? The Cottage Globe dies married with the Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Easel dies helped me create this sweet scene. I started with the cottage and cut it from 4 different colors of cardstocks: red, white glitter, honey-brown to represent gingerbread, and two from yellow. I trimmed the door off the honey-brown one. I cut another cottage from red paper and snipped off the door to use. I loved the idea of having a window in the door and was thrilled to see that I could put the red door upside down onto the cottage die and cut a window out of the door (yes, tweezers and reading glasses were critical for this).
IMG_2995
I went over the door with a clear glitter pen. I used the window inlays from my two yellow cottages and inset them into the honey-brown cottage and the red door. Before I added the frosted roof, I used a white gel pen to doodle on the cottage, making it look like icing. Once the cottage was complete, the rest was easier. I die cut the fence and the tree from the same honey-brown cardstock and used my white gel pen to add snow.  I cut two snow mounds from the snow die that came with the Cottage Globe die, one from white cardstock, the other from glitter cardstock.
 
I cut the two base pieces of the card from red and white cardstock. I cut the globe from pale blue cardstock and used a medium blue ink to just barely edge it with ink. I even glued down  a few pieces of snowflake-shaped glitter to add to the snowy feel. Now I wanted to add candy to the scene. Some shaker bits and tiny tree ornaments I picked up at the craft store really fit the bill. I played with the arrangement before I glued things down.
 
IMG_2971
I could have created the candy with paper and markers too. I glued down tiny peppermints onto the tree and I snipped the little hanger loops off the mini lollipops. Next I assembled everything onto the blue circle, starting with the tree, then adding the white snow, then the fence. Then I had to carefully glue down the lollipops. Next I used foam adhesive to adhere the glitter snow mound. I used liquid glue on the bottom of the cottage and foam adhesive on the top to get the dimension correct so it would sit level.
 
I next adhered the globe onto the white card base. I had die cut the snowglobe base from dark brown cardstock and the trim from a brushed gold cardstock. I glued these together and then only used liquid glue to adhere the base to the bottom of the glitter snow mound. I could have also put foam adhesive behind the base to attach it to the white cardstock, but it wasn't necessary. Finally I put everything down onto the red easel, attaching the white base to a narrow, pre-scored flap so the card can stand up. I liked my card as it was but I could easily add a sentiment to the base. This card would also make a great tree ornament as it is not too big. What can you imagine creating  with it?
