Looking Out The Window.

Good morning friends, followers and callers by..

Sharing my DT card for Poppystamps blog
This card squishes down FLAT  for posting! ( Concertina sides)

Few years since I made this card design, you can make it any size! mine is finished 51/2" x 51/2" . 

This is how to create the font..

You will need three  card pieces.. 1@ 51/2" x 51/2"back....   2. @ 71/2"x 71/2"....These are your card fronts.. Score each end @ 1/2" & 1".. then concertina fold.
I am using Poppystamps Large Madison window set, I wanted a scene looking out the window, you can use any shape you like.
Find the centre and die cut both card fronts..

Apply strong tape onto both card fronts as shown.. along the 1/2" score line..( these two you stick together on top of each other)

I have adhered acetate to wrong side, touch smaller than 51/2"x 51/2" ..then adhered the window back in place...

Decorate  the inside and outside as you wish..I have used my Favourite Poppystamps "small Luxe Poinsettias" with "Verona Flourish" and this new Westbridge Christmas Tree.. tiny flowers on the tree are from the window set. 
Pinflair Ice Diamond.for the snow.

Thank you for calling by my blog.. I wish you all  ..A Merry Christmas  and  Happy New Year Pam x

Embossed & Die Cut Gatefold card.

Good afternoon friends, followers and  callers by..

We have had a gloomy day today, so dark think the fog will be back later..
Sorry photos are not very good on this card, I have had to take them with the card laying down, left one stood up.

Tattered Lace Gate Fold Amore embossing folder & Amore Edge Border Die..
Had these a few weeks from C/C.. their is four sets altogether.

You need A4 card for the length by 6" depth. after you use your edge die is reduces the length.
Placed ribbon between these layers..
I put this around a gate fold card and used a corner rounder We-R Memory keepers.
Embossing is not as deep as normal folders, as you put your folded scored card inside this folder.

Sentiment by Justrite "Friendship Vintage Labels Seven.
Stamped onto Crea-nest-lies XXL stitched ovals.
Beautiful floral frame Memory Box.. Fairy Flower Frame.
Added Riviera Corners from my bit box..

Aperture With A Swing Bauble..

Good morning friends, followers and visitors, welcome to new follower Meine Bastelwelt. thank you for joining me.

Sharing my DT card for Poppystamps blog today.

I have a few followers who ask how I do "Aperture cards" with a die and add a frame, so I have taken photos to do a step by step, making an aperture for a swing bauble..

Finished card 5.1/2" x 6"..


 Main card folded in half.
I am using the two largest die from Poppystamps Stitched Main Street Tags.
using both dies to find the centre of the card where I want my cut out to be and large enough for the bauble to swing.

Use the smallest die only for the cut out!
Open card and run through your cutting machine.
Finished cut out.

Place the paper you are using inside the card. again put the smallest die one you have used for the cut out back in the frame.
Draw a pencil line around.
Using your die on the blue paper, cut this on your pencil line.

ONLY if you are adding paper to your card! you do this..


Using your two dies together, cut a white frame, this is for your Aperture.. Front of the card.

Glue your blue paper to the card front.
 I cut away to leave a small border (After Stamping and embossing with White embossing powder).
The glue your frame to the card..

Finished card.. I also used White Gesso on the Poinsettias and berries..
list below what I have used..

Thank you for stopping by and hope you understand the tutorial on to-days card..Pam x

Two Colour Stamping, with the Misti .

Good morning friends, followers and visitors.. Welcome to new followers  Bev Slaunwhite & Tammy Whitley, thank you for joining following my blog.

Sure is a cold day here, least sun is out! but really windy..

I have received  my Misti Stamping tool ...Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented!!
OMW it is fantastic, so much easer for double stamping technique`s ..masking .. placement stamping..   From Oyster stamps. first two shipments have sold out. another shipment due late December.  worth the wait..

Completed card.. my kind of card to-day.

I die cut my shape I wanted to stamp on first, Open Studio. Stitched Circle Layers.
I put the stamp on this where I wanted this image, closed the lid for it to attach to the lid, inked this it pink ink.

I used a Doeflex sheet from my stash I used this to make templates years ago, so this ideal to use.   Just placed stippled stamp on the lid, doeflex I had cut up, used black ink stamp, clean stamp.

Leave Doeflex in place and slide your stamped image underneath, carefully remove doeflex add a magnet .

Then stamp in a ink of your choice..

I then masked my image to stamp around the flower, doing same technique as before..

Completed topper..

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, any comments I`ll return to you.. Pam x
