You Are Wonderful:
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, today I made a card with Memory Box "Peony Garden" clear stamps.

This is a beautiful Floral Image, there is a matching die in the set, I wanted a flat image.


I have used Distress Oxide Ink "speckled egg" to stamp onto white card, clear embossing powder, I wanted a tone on tone colour.



I have trimmed this white card and painted using Distress oxide Speckled Egg & Ground Espresso, using water and ink on a glass matt, paint brush.




I used same ink on these beautiful Poppystamps "Intricate Cut Butterflies" layered up for dimension. Sentiment is from the stamp set...finished with white seam binding bow and clear dewdrops.

Finished card size 6 inches x 8 inches matts of egg blue and brown onto white card base.

Thank you for stopping by Pam x.

Happy Harvest.
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, This card is not something I normally make! Harvest/Fall design. Thought this "Twisted Tree Oval" die, perfect for these card designs.




I cut a 3"  X 6.3/4 inch black card, placed the Twisted tree Oval central and near the top, ran it through my die cutting machine, trimmed as close as I could to the oval, adhered to Memory Box orange paper, used foam pads to give the tree height, matted this onto another black card..


found the center:  and cut straight up to  1.1/2 inch with scissors: next using scissors  cut a diagonal from left and right to create the upside down V..


I cut the Pumpkins in white card, coloured with pens, Orange & Red :green for the storks 


Simple Lantern has been cut from the oval: Poppystamp Pumpkin Patch stamps, for the sentiments, few random falling leaves around the tree, these I have done in black and orange ink, tiny little dots on the white card to take the plainness off.

Thank you for stopping by Pam x.

Hello everyone, Pam here to remind you about our Poppystamps monthly challenge..This months theme Think Pink which also coincides with Breast Cancer Awareness month.




I created this very easy card, using this beautiful background die from Poppystamps "Raining Frame", to frame this I have used Memory Box "Rectangle Basic" ..Memory Box. Spring time Bouquet  Strips & Dots 6x6 paper pad in pink. 
I only wanted a frame to adhere to the Raining Background, I will use the inner die cut on another project! no goo wasting pretty paper.


I stamped this sentiment using Birch Press Design: "Blooming Spring" stamp set..Olive coloured ink. before adding 3d foam tape to the panel. Main card size 5.1/2 inches x 6.1/2 inches. decoration: Whittle Clouds & Orchard Leaves, cut in green card.. made from pink narrow ribbon and dewdrops breast cancer bow.

"O Holy Night"
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, Christmas is sure getting close now! I love sparkle anytime, but have to have sparkle at Christmas..


Wonderful Glitter on this paper pad from Memory Box..


I have cut Poppystamps "Stained Glass Angel" Gold & Red Glitter.


On the reverse of the gold only! I used double side tape, to keep all the cuts in place.


Adhere the red as shown, disregard the other cuts, using a small off cut of white glitter, cut the Angel .


Adhere the white glitter angel as shown, I think it really makes the Angel pop! with these layers. Leave the wings loose ..adds texture.


From the Glitter pad, 6x6 size. I used Memory Box "Wrapped Stitched Rectangle die" . I will save this cut for a later project, perfect size cut out fro my Angel topper. 


I am using Memory Box Christmas Plaid  paper, just a small matt around the whit glitter, I am gutting the center from this sheet of paper, using for my flowers, so why waste what you cannot see.


Adhere to white card 6x6 add foam tape to cut out, for the topper.


6x6 inch card ready to decorate.


I did add a touch of dark green card, mostly used for the flowers off cuts of glitter card and paper. and a final gingham bow.

Thank you for stopping by, I wonder how many of you like to see how I make these cards! or are you bored to tears with the long post, would love some feed back Pam x

Calendar Tab 2021. Christmas Easel Card.
by Pam Simpson

Hello Everyone, Have you seen this gorgeous scene on Memory Box embossing folder "Snowy Forest" ..makes a quick card. I decided to create calendar tab easel cards for Christmas.


I have used white pearl card..


I cut a rectangle using Memory Box Basic Rectangle dies. Embossing folder/green ink & Brayer ..I find this gives a better coverage of ink.


I have inked the embossing folder, smooth side, when you run your fingers over the folder, you`ll know which side this is, the other is really prominent raised pattern.


This is how my rectangle embossed! I love the speckle effect, give a lovely soft look. (Hope you agree)


 This is serving two purpose. frame for my embossing panel and fancy  panel for the inside of the easel. used the Rectangle and fancy die from Easel card die.


thin white card, added Washi tape to both sides, covers for my Calendars.


These were so quick to make ..I have made Three  to send out for Christmas cards. Sentiment Poppystamps "Christmas Quotes" cut with stitch circles Memory Box, you do get dies with these stamps, but wanted a smaller circle, decoration, Memory Box "Fairy Sugar" glitter card.  Poppystamp Garden Berries / Grosgrain Bow. 


Hope you`ll have a go at these quick makes...Thank you for stopping by Pam x.
