Hello and welcome to the Memory Box blog. Penny here today with more goodies from the newest release. I don't know about you, but for me making "manly" cards is tough...until this newest release. So many things to be excited about!!!

Let me walk you through it:

Start with a White cardstock base and "emboss" Scalloped Stitch Trimmings using the largest and third largest of the dies.


Ink blend as shown using Peacock Feathers and Squeezed Lemonade Distress inks.

For the sky ...die cut the largest Stitched Cloud Trio, then use as a mask and swipe VersaMagic Aspen Mist ink upwards leaving soft cloud formations on your card front.



Die cut Oceanside Lighthouse and Waves from White cardstock. I colored the Lighthouse by using the Collective Hearts stencil and eBrushing with a Copic marker. Small strip of Black cardstock was used behind the windows.

Wave was inked with Peacock Feathers then coated with Stardust Stickles. These were adhered to card front with foam adhesive.

Greeting from the So Many Things to Love set was stamped and heat embossed unto Vellum.

The Flying Gulls were die cut from White cardstock.


Are you loving the Ocean themed release? Which is your favorite so far?


Happy Crafting...




Wow love that background ,your card is beautiful what a dreamy card and perfect for a guy and love all the new dies.

Beautiful scene you created! Love your sponged background. The dies are PERFECT! Great design and layout! I have been loving all of the new Released dies!

What a STUNNING card you have created! Thanks for detailing all the steps.
All I need now is the lighthouse die!!!

Sooooo Beautiful!!! Perfect blending!!!

This really is lovely Penny and I find masculine cards tough as well. I would quite honestly have to say the lighthouse is my fav. as I live in the Maritimes (Nova Scotia) and we are known for our lighthouses and fishing villages.

Didn't these clouds turn out great?

Wow! A beautiful scene card! Love the background, amazing techniques. I find manly cards extremely difficult. My husband would love this card. The way you did the stripes on the lighthouse was very outside the box, loved that! Thank you for sharing this fantastic, inspiring, gorgeous card today.
