Hello! And welcome! It's Halloween time. Can you believe it? I'm featuring Poppy's Barn Die Set with a spooky theme, something I love to do with die sets, stretch their use with the seasons and holidays. Scroll down for pictures, fair warning, there's lots to see!

The base of the barn was cut with dark blue cardstock, from Memory Box's fabulous cardstock collection. The rest are bright Halloween colors, also from the MB Collections.

The following photos are closeups of the areas with spooky characters. The web was white embossed onto vellum and fussy cut.

I love to back my images with another die cut, for a shadow or a glow.

The handmade A2 sized envelope is stamped and stenciled onto butcher paper.

Christmas Porch Easel Card
by Sue McRae

20201206_083516c

Hello everyone! Only a few days left until Christmas! I hope you have all your shopping done and cookies baked!

I’m stopping in with my last card for 2020 and final Christmas card with the Winter Porch Pop Up Easel Set.

20201206_083138c

My first decision was colour palette and decided on turquoise and red, one of my favorite colour combos.

20201206_082856c

This card is easy to put together, it’s just a matter of die cutting all the pieces in your chosen colours.

Once I adhered all the house pieces I decided to add a couple of large trees from the Evergreen Trio on either side of the door. I have three layers of white cardstock and the top layer is silver glitter cardstock. This gives the trees some thickness and make them stand out from the porch front.

20201206_082423c

The snow on the roof is white glitter cardstock and the greenery hanging on the front door is from the very tip of the large Holiday Mistletoe die.

20201206_082357c

For the inside of the card I have two sentiments. The white circle sentiment was heat embossed in silver and I tripled up the Holly Merry Christmas for some added dimension.

20201206_082718c

Thank you so much for joining me today and I thank you for following along with all my posts this past year. I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and all the best for a great 2021!

Welcome Christmas
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0012

Christmas Greetings, all! Hoping you're enjoying the holiday season, even with all that's plagued us this past year. I have a card to share that hopefully brings some cheer along with inspiration, using some dies that can be used any time or season.

DSC_0016_wm

The Townhouses trio is a fun set of 3 townhomes with separate roofs, allowing you to change up the colors. My card today uses them on a shaker. 

DSC_0004

After I folded my 4 1/4 x 11" cardstock I positioned my square frame where I wanted the shaker to be. Then drew within the square window.

DSC_0006

I kept the pencil mark faint, but you can see where it's drawn (if you look carefully). Then I used post it notes to create a barrier for sponging.

DSC_0009

The sponging was done rather randomly, slightly heavier on top, sort of like a snowy flurry.

DSC_0015

Here's a closeup of the townhomes. I decided to add 'snow' to the rooftops (embossing) and doubled the homes so the windows would have a bit of contrast.

DSC_0017 2_wm

Snowflake sequins are the sweetest shaker elements, don't you think? 

Despite a year of chaos and turmoil, it's still the most wonderful time of year. And my prayer is that you find peace and joy in the beauty of the holidays. Blessings!

Simple Bird House Pop Up Easel
by Jeanne Jachna

Poppystamps-Bird House-Jeanne Jachna-2
Hi friends!  I hope you're having a great day!  It's December so let the countdown to Christmas begin!  I know you're making seasons bright with all your creations this month! 

Poppystamps-Bird House-Jeanne Jachna-4

I'm smitten with a fussy card but they're not always so simple to make.  I am always in awe and then find the directions too complicated for me to reproduce.  I love  the easel dies at Poppystamps.. they make a fussy looking card super easy to make with all the dies you need to make something extraordinary.

I mean, does it get easier than this?  You cut out all the pieces and then assemble them, and BAM! You have a gorgeous fancy fold easel card that looks fussy but isn't.

Poppystamps-Bird House-Jeanne Jachna-5

Even the inside panel is separate so you can stamp a sentiment or leave it blank for a personalized note.  This sentiment is from the Poppystamps Christmas Time stamp set.   I love the script font and heartfelt message.

Poppystamps-Bird House-Jeanne Jachna-3

I cut the snowy drifts from glitter paper.  Did you know that Memory Box has 6" pads of glitter paper?   I added some light distress inking on the birdhouse front panel to bring out the lines on the paneling.  A few half pearls make shiny red berries added to the evergreen boughs.  I used a sharpie to color the  face of the cardinal and a dot of Nuvo drops form an eye.

Easy peasy right?   Crafting doesn't need to be complicated.. it only needs to be FUN!  Hugs!
