Lamp post scene and Chrysanthemum Birthday...


Enjoy the ride!  Pam here, taking you away to a place with gingham grass and polka dot flowers! So fun to create whimsical scenes with Memory Box and Poppystamps dies and papers!


I used parts of a couple dies… the leaves in the tree are from the Lavish Branch die and the grass is just the scallop part of the Spring Border die with the flowers cut off.


I die cut the Lamp post frame out of Vanilla Bean card-stock and the Debutante background is die cut out of Water card-stock.

The Lavish Branch is die cut from the Key Lime Gingham and the Cranberry Dots Card-stock.  I cut the red flowers off and glued them on top of the Lime Green flowers with Tombow Mono Multi glue.

The little butterflies are from the new Dancing Butterflies die and the butterfly is the Pippi Butterfly die.

My Chrysanthemum Happy Birthday card features the new Chrysanthemum Outline die, Chrysanthemum Background die and Happy Birthday script dies.  I used the Dogwood Blossom Outline die and Dogwood Blossom die for the stems and leaves.

Happy Birthday is die cut from Licorice card-stock,  the flowers are cut from Bubblegum dots card-stock, the stems and leaves are cut from Key Lime Dots and the accent paper border is Key Lime Gingham.

How to get perfect placement for the happy and birthday words…
* after die cutting, keep the negative piece from the cut  (the part you would usually throw away)
* place it over your card where you want your word to be
* put adhesive on your word die cut
* place your word back in the negative piece, press it in place
* then slowly, carefully remove the negative piece so all that is left in place, is the word


In this photo you can see I die cut the florals in the white card base then cut them out of the colored card-stock too and inserted them in the cuts in the white card base.

A fun technique for using Memory Box dies...cutting, layering them with different colors for a little different look.  I did this on my Jasper Leaves card,  HERE

Thanks for stopping by today! Happy stamping and die cutting!


Great cards!! I love your Chrysanthemum happy birthday card! So neat how you made the flowers a background element and brought the script to the front. Love how you layered the dies as well. Thanks for sharing.
