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.

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.

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.

Boo to you! Hello, Marybeth here today, sharing this simply fun Halloween Boo card.

I use Poppystamps Boo Outline , Squeaker Ghost and memory box Frosted Glitter Pad.

3AB0F794-2A9F-4D83-967E-D577F9B8EFA6_1_201_a

I cut out these cute little guys a few times, as I wanted a bit of a shadow and thicker texture so they would stand out on the white panel.

49B7AF16-1FBB-4E9D-AAE2-A08E3F82623C_1_201_a

Again I kept this clean and simple with only two colors, that way star of this card would be the word die and the sweet little Ghost.

C33F55E2-533C-4B1C-AF2F-B4D2903B86EF_1_201_a

I keep some of my dies together, much easier to keep in one place .

Thank you for visiting us here at Poppystamps today, I hope you find some inspiration to shop and create . I know this craft we all share has been a great blessing during these difficult times. 

We are still very smoky with active fires to the east and west of where I live. I miss the blue sky and pray for so many including the firefighters! Did you know many firefighters sleep on the ground or top of the firetruck when fighting the fires. They are awesome!

Take care and God bless!

Whittle Pumpkin Witch
by Marybeth Lopez

44A58BDC-2832-4175-B3A1-97D243404FA4

Hello there from smokey California, Marybeth here today. I made this very clean and simple card ( love), using the darling Whittle Pumpkin Witch from Poppystamps .I was very happy when I opened up the die, that it had extra dies for the clothing and broom. I only needed to cute twice to layer  with the Frosted Glitter from memory box.

6F666241-ADB1-4DBF-9501-FD39B30B1582

The sentiment is from Poppystamps called Halloween Ingredients clear stamp set. I used watercolor cardstock for the white panel and glitter paper (linked below) for the background  panel.

46E05F85-4AAA-44DE-BE8E-B2601F35316B_1_201_a

I cut the die a few times so I could see what colors I wanted to use. I ended up only using two colors to keep the card even more clean and simple. Don't you just love the detail on the pumpkin and broom!

Sorry orange sky so hard to get a good bright pictures as I use natural light . 

9F8FA9CF-D2D5-4A51-A324-4798B6B407CA

Happy I took a few pictures before the smoke got so bad. Hope you have fun crating for Halloween, one of my many favorite times to create! 

I hope you are all doing well , my heart goes out to all those affected by the fires..... its been horrible this year. 

Take care and God bless !

Hello there ! Today I used the darling , Poppystamps : Bird House Pop Up Easel Die  Set. I only used the birdhouse today for my card within the Easel. Such a fun set and can be used in so many ways.

49BF975A-0C13-47DE-A23E-C8563A1F0DCE_1_201_a

This is another fun die  from Poppystamps that can be used anytime of year for any occasions.

I cut a few of the birdhouses out of fabric to appliqué on a quilt . I didn't  use it on this card today but I wanted to show you just how nicely these dies cut fabric. I just added my metal shim for a clean cut.

1A2B1CAA-D8FE-4922-8EC5-54A310F25F80_1_201_a

To make the extra trim on the lower edge of the birdhouse I cut it out twice , just turned the die around to cut again, as pictured above.

79DF503E-CB22-42A0-93C3-6FBEA9F6D8D7_1_201_a

I used some of the beautiful, 6 x 6 patterned paper packs from : memory box . All the paper is linked below in the supply list.

God bless you all.
