I am showcasing the Pickering Snowflake Background Die. This is a very detailed die and takes some care and appropriate material choices for optimal results.
I ended up using 2 pieces of cardstock and a dryer sheet. Have you heard of that technique? If not let me know and I will share it in a future post.

My card base is 110 lb solar white neenah. I then had this fabulous gold heavy card-stock I cut it to fit the background piece and glued them both to the base.

Check out the detail on the sled. I die cut it first then used a thin rubber mat in place of a paper or cut mat and it dry embossed the design built into the die! Don't forget to comment to win this fabulous background die!

Wishing You a very.. Poppystamps Blog Blitz

Welcome to Poppystamps and Our Mini Blog Blitz! New dies! Yay!
Poppyblitzsmfluffytree
I am showcasing the small fluffy tree for you today. I used some sticky paper and applied some ultra fine glitter to it and then cut out my tree pieces. I love creating scenes with Poppy Dies. I could see making a whole card full of these lovely trees or even just showcasing one by itself with maybe some ornaments or berries on it.

I brought in the Pop of red and added a little sticker to one deers nose.

The snow drifts were cut using glittered felt. which added some deminsion to the card.

Poppystamps Birthday Crad

Welcome to poppy stamps blog . Today I have a shaker card to share with you. I created my background using a custom stencil with a die from BirchPress Designs.

This die is really fun to use and makes shaker cards easy peasy! Just a bit of fun foam to make room for the sequins.

And here's a close up of the shaker.

Simon Says Stamp Memory Box stamp for Stamptember








Welcome to my blog and my second post for the day! Be sure and take a look back at my earlier post.
I am beyond thrilled to be posting a creation I made for  Simon Says Stamp Stamptember Event! Dave from Memory Box Co, designed and exclusive stamp set for this Annual promotion.


It is available today at

Such and adorable bunny set in time for the holiday's! I chose to watercolor my images and hand cut them out to assemble my scene. I love to pop up elements and give dimension.



Have a Happy Day!

Time to Par-Tee! Lori Whitlock

Welcome Lori Whitlock Fans! Today's inspiration and photo tutorial provided by Lezlye Lauterbach Designs. I am a bit new at this tutorial posting, so bear with me. Today I have cut, embellished and assembled the fabulous pop up box golf cards that Lori has designed.

A few things to point out what works for me, (I toggle back and forth with Cricut and Silhoutte ) I import the SVG file into Cricut Design Space and un-group it. This next step is where you need to  each image with score lines and hit attach so that when you cut those pieces the scores happen on each piece.



I also decided to draw my sentiment instead of cut those tiny little letters. You simply highlight the whole sentiment and attach then change from cut to write as illustrated above. I used a simple uniball pen I had on hand, only because I do not own the pens made by Cricut.



I used watercolors and inks along with stickles and glossy accents for the tires to enhance the card design. Since this could potentially be for a man I didn't want to get too fancy.







Here is my final result.



This card makes me happy and now I want to go play a round of golf! Anyone?

Have a Happy Day!

Polar Christmas-Poppystamps Challenge



Welcome to Poppystamps Blog! Lezlye here today with a card I am in love with!
Polar Christmas
The first thing I did was use a Memory Box Co Stencil with snowflakes and embossing paste. This brought a nice dimension and texture to the card.

Then I wanted to have two bears facing each other so using Versamark ink  and a solid image stamp I stamped on the solid image and then stamped that on paper to give a reverse image of the polar bear. I then embossed them and cut out with the die. For the reverse use a light source and line up the die to cut out the polar bear.

I apologize for the shadows in my progress picture, the late night lighting in my studio was creating them. :(
