Welcome Crafty Friends~ it's day four of the blog blitz featuring the newest release from the Memory Box holiday collection. Having fun so far? Be sure to check in on the blog all week for more inspiration and creativity---and prizes!
Today I'm showing off the gorgeous Fanciful Poinsettia Ornament and the Adler Star Collage, my picks for this first week Outside the Box.
After die cutting the Adler Star Collage from a sky blue note card, I added a panel of watercolored paper to the inside cover allowing the mix of blues, greens and purples to show through. The watercolors are from the handy watercolor sheets from Birch Press--found here.
I die cut the Fanciful Poinsettia Ornament from both white and concord Memory Box paper then mixed-and-matched the parts between the two ornaments. The solid Classic Ornament diecut was used as a base for all the pieces and gives stability when adhering the parts in place. A bit of tumbled glass blue distress ink was sponged onto one poinsettia while I left the other one white---both poinsettias were pressed firmly in the center on a sponge pad to coax the petals forward before adhering the petal layers in place.
Emboss the sentiment onto a strip of vellum with platinum embossing powder and secure the ends around the edges of the card. Lastly, add a pretty silver cord to the top of the ornaments, wrapping over the top edge and secure on the inside. A second panel added on the inside hides the vellum edges, watercolor paper and silver cords.
This week was also the reveal on Simon Says Stamp for the exclusive STAMPtember stamp set designed by Memory Box and I'm happy to share this fun card featuring the Love & Laughter set:
