Hi there , it will be Christmas before you know it! If you need some quick  and easy cards , this might just work for you. Easy to mail as well.

I used Poppystamps dies and stamps, along with glitter paper and die  from memory box, all linked below.

I chose these monotone colors from the Holiday Glitter Pad. I used the lightest colors for the trees and the mail panel. There are many beautiful colors in that pad.

The trees came out very nicely with the metal shim from Poppystamps.

Pictured above are the products I used also linked and listed below.

I love that the memory box Wrapped Stitch looks so elegant on the paper, it comes with five different sizes . I used the second largest.

some of my trees are layered for a bit of depth and because I had extra, still nice for mailing .

I hope every one here in USA has a wonderful blessed Thanksgiving, May God bless you all everywhere!

Christmas Holly

Hello, Marybeth Lopez  here today with two Christmas Cards from Poppystamps . I used the new Holly background die and Memory box glitter paper.

0DA00EC7-BD4E-4BD8-BA7E-C5FB16D0DDEB_1_201_a

I wasn't sure what I was go to make so I kept changing and layering my design.

6993F959-7EA0-43F0-A0DA-42B78141F66D_1_201_a

At first it was going to be very simple , just fill in the berries and leaves with foil paper, then I changed it up again.

As you can see below I was all over the place with my design, guess I just had a hard time concentrating.

Thought I would share what my desk looked liked like, pretty messy , right! I decided on one red card with the sentiment stamped on the inside (sorry forgot the photo)

So two different cards just different colors and very easy to make, once you know what you want to do :)

Happy Pumpkins
by Marybeth Lopez

Hello friends! Marybeth Lopez here today , sharing this group of fun and happy pumpkins from Poppystamps. These Haunting Pumpkins.... just look kinda happy to me and make a great Halloween Card or for someone with a birthday in October, keep the face off and perfect for fall.

B48427F6-6304-40FC-A3F2-6537B0746EA4_1_201_a

This was a simple card to make if you don't make a mistake (haha). Like I did.

The Happy Halloween clear stamp is also from Poppystamps called Halloween Ingredients.

7C907F17-331A-4FD2-ACBA-4D5AEDA11731_1_201_a

After diecuttig the pumpkins I used  Oxide ink  and my blending brush to blend in the two colors.  Not sure if you can see but I added bit of two sided tape on my glass mat so that the pumpkins would stay in place, when I blended the ink. If I left inside the negative the sides would still be white. 

0B39B128-D312-4AB6-8809-807FA7F56735_1_201_a

So, I decided to add a bit of shimmer and blended two colors. When I was all finished with my card I dropped it in the pool of shimmer ink. It was all over the back side. I ended up cutting the back off and trimming down the front of the card then just added it to a new card base. Happy Save :)

84F6AAD0-3B40-4D36-BCC7-2A084C67CAC7_1_201_a

For the front of my card I used striped patterned paper from memory box called Garland Stripes and Dots.

Hope you have a happy week and wonderful Halloween .  Have you ever had a happy save?

 

Take care and God bless!

You could win a $20 certificate to the store, just by playing along !

Hi there! Marybeth, here today. Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying October.

For this card, I used the beautiful Snowy Forest Embossing folder from memory box , for the backdrop of my card. 

937CC73D-F193-4929-8B2F-B51C75596935_1_201_a

Not sure if you can see but I added some glitter on the embossed folder , its such a beautiful  shimmer in person.

I simply added the glitter die cut trees from Poppystamps to the already embossed panel.

In the photo above I am showing how I die cut the leaves , you might not even need a metal shim but the trees came out so beautifully when I did. Glitter paper is a bit thicker than most paper,  the dies cut like butter with the shim. You could probably use an extra paper if needed and you don't have a shim.

A85C5991-FF20-463D-80C3-6E614E1EC8EA_1_201_a

I always cut out way more than I need  so I can choose as I go, to create my card then I have extra for the next card.

Hello and Happy October to you all! Marybeth Lopez  here today sharing this beautiful Poppystamps Angel! I made her a Christmas angel but could be used for anytime of year. This die is called : Stained Glass Angel.

I used, Holiday Glitter Pad from memory box. The picture above captures how much it can glisten in the light.

I had to share a close up of the beautiful patterned paper in this wonderful Christmas Plaid patterned paper pack. Hard to see in my photos but some of the lines are foil.

Here is another shot in the sunlight to show the glistening of this beautiful glitter paper.

I cut the stained glass angel  out a few times and decided on glitter outline and watercolor cardstock ( has a nice cotton look) for the inside all but the Angel  ( she/he in soft gold)

I used softer inside colors so it would compete with the beautiful plaid .

I will be using this beautiful die again for sure! The sentiment is from Poppystamps Christmas Quotes.

Thank you for the visit today .

I hope you all stay happy and well. God bless you all.
