Hi all - I'm back with my third and final sleigh card for Christmas Kickstart Challenge 49.
Since the Tim Holtz ephemera packs were out from my previous sleigh cards, I also pulled out his 2020 Christmas 8x8 paper pad. Found a fun red woodgrain paper to use as a background for a collage with an old fashioned Santa & sleigh postcard. The bell swag (hard to see) has the sentiment Merry Christmas.
And now for a twofer. My Christmas card production has been lagging this year so I decided to create with more leftover bits. I had some stitched squares from a previous slimline where I just used the frame. I played around with some ephemera from a 2019 Spellbinders card kit and came up with this:

I'm the featured designer at Die Cut Divas today. We're showcasing Poppystamps products - love them and I have a fair few! I chose the new Fern and Daisy Pop-up Easel set on a recent online shopping spree. I adore Poppystamps pop-up easel die sets and couldn't resist this one. Rather than make a pop-up card, though, I made a shaker!

Hey crafty friends - sorry I've been missing in action again! Seems I don't get as much time card making & blogging these days... Anyway, I'm popping in with a twofer for the current Twofer Challenge.
I used a fabulous coverplate from Sunny Studio that I got back in January and just love - Botanical Backdrop. Besides the leafy frame you get flower parts - I still haven't snipped them apart from the frame since it's handy to cut everything together or use it all to emboss.
For card one I cut everything in white and just used the frame. Note - I did snip off a leaf that covered part of my sentiment. For card two I placed scraps of green on just the leaves I wanted from the die and then snipped off the frame parts. I used the white flowers from step one plus a few pastel parts left from other projects. The oval was another leftover part. Here's a closer look at each card with supply list:

Happy Easter wishes to all celebrating today! We're expecting temps into the 70s F so looking forward to that!! Over at Die Cut Divas we're doing window cards with Poppystamps as our sponsor. Of course I had to go shopping! My "masterpiece" this year uses a new easel die set from Poppystamps but has nothing to do with the window theme... It went to my friend Heather (stamping and stitching) and her family.

I used the colors and the sketch, plus theme of friendship.
