Special Moments – Embossed and Glossed by Jean Okimoto

P1025850

Celebrate special moments with a summer-y floral slimline.  Hi, Jean here with a combination of soft colors, bold designs and a lot of texture.   

P1025875
Cut the pale peach Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad 6x6 with the blossom die from the Gracious Floral 3D Embossing Folder and Die Set.  Place the diecut in the folder and  emboss it using the plates required for your machine.  Ink the center with Brilliance Pearlescent Lime and set it aside to dry.

The Gracious Floral Clear Stamp and Die set includes the floral die and 2 greeting dies.  Cut the design from heavy white cardstock.  Ink the embossing folder with Brilliance Rocket Red Gold - tap the inkpad repeatedly over the surface without squishing it into the design. Emboss the cardstock.  

Stamp the greeting on pale green cardstock with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair. Quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.   Dry the ink, then trim it with one end of the ⅞" wide Slim Basic Rectangles die.  Trim the other end with the side of a larger die from the rectangles set.

Trim the Madras Plaid Coral and Green 6x6 with the 1-⅜" wide Slim Basic Rectangles die - cut it vertically, including the top portion  where the sheets are attached.  

Cut white cardstock with the 2-¼" wide Slim Basic Rectangles die

P1025863

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-⅝") - use foam tape where the petals extend beyond the background rectangles.  Add clear Christmas Fairy Crystals.  Cut a slimline-sized rectangle of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting the blog...have a great weekend!

Just For You
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_5309

Happy Thursday everyone!  I have a summer themed card for you today, using an easy embossed technique.

To create the background, I stamped the fish using yellow pigment ink and heat embossed the images using clear embossing powder.

IMG_5307

Next, I applied distress ink to the background using domed blending tools.  The ink resists the yellow embossed images to highlight the yellow fish.

IMG_5308

I spattered the background with white ink and used foam tape to adhere it to a white card base.

I die cut some seaweed and coral elements from vellum and glued those to the card.

The sentiment was stamped with gold ink and heat embossed using gold embossing powder.  I used the coordinating die to cut out the words.  Foam tape was used to adhere it to the card front.

To finish the card I used some Fairy Gemstones to add some texture.

That's it for today!  Thanks for stopping by!

Combine the Gracious Floral and Magnolia Collections by Jean Okimoto

Design elements from spring's Magnolia Collection and the Gracious Floral Collection team up for a slimline card.  Hi, Jean here with a mix of dies, stencils, clear stamps, a plaid 6x6,  jewels and a 3D embossing folder that somehow became floral design for summer greetings.

Glue two pieces of lavender cardstock together and diecut the flower from the Gracious Floral 3D Embossing Folder and Die Set.  Diecutting the double layer adds extra dimension to the flower and it's faster than cutting two flowers and gluing them together.  

Ink the flower in the top portion of the  embossing folder with Brilliance Pearlescent Purple.  Tap the ink onto the design - don't squish or rub it into the flower.  Place the diecut flower securely in the folder and emboss it using the plates required for your machine.

The Gracious Floral Stencil Set is numbered for easy reference.  We are using the flower upside-down - it's OK!  Brush, sponge or daub Pearlescent Purple using stencil #A2 for the shaded purple areas.

Stencil Brilliance Pearlescent Yellow onto the flower's center using stencil #A4.  Stencil Brilliance Pearlescent Thyme using stencil #A3.  Add a light layer of Pearlescent Thyme to the center of the flower - just enough so you'll still see the yellow ink.

Cut Magnolia Leaf Branch from green cardstock.  Trim the two highest leaves on the left and the branch tip.

Stamp the greeting - from the Gracious Floral Clear Stamp and Die Set - with Electric Purple Radiant Neon.  The color sounds a little scary, but it's a great purple - not too red, not too blue.  Quickly heat-emboss the greeting with detail clear powder.  Trim it horizontally with the smallest Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die - cut 1 short end using the die.  Trim the other short end using the side of a larger die.

Cut lavender cardstock with the ⅞" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  Cut the purple Magnolia Plaid 6x6 with the smallest rectangle die.

Cut white cardstock with the 1-⅞" rectangle die.  Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card - use foam tape for petal- and  bigger leaf-tips where they extend past the background block.  Add purple Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut a slimline-sized rectangle of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Mix and match your blossoms and branches to create new designs and get the most from your Memory Box stash.  Thanks for visiting - see you on Friday!

Just For You on Gray
by Angie Cimbalo

Just for you main

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today!   I have another fun card made with the new Memory Box June release called Gracious Floral.  It includes coordinating 3D embossing folder, dies, stamps and stencils.
 
To make my card I first embossed a piece of light gray card stock with the new 3D embossing folder and then used the stencils and ink daubers to color the image with Distress Inks.  Once I was happy with the colors, I took the large coordinating die from the stamp set and cut out the gray panel.  I cut a 2nd one from a piece of A2 card stock, and inserted the colored one into the opening.  
 
The sentiment is a stamp and die in the Gracious Floral set and I heat embossed it in white on black card stock and used the die to cut it out.
 
Here's another look:

Just for you close

I added that whole panel to a white card base and then added white gel pen accents, black dots to tiny flower centers and then added small jewels from the Christmas Jewels set.  Here's one last look:

Just for you 1

I hope you like my card for today, I really enjoyed creating it.  Be sure to come back tomorrow to see more inspiration from the design team!  Happy crafting my friends!

Debossed Gracious Floral
by Trina Pham

IMG_1527

Hello there.  Today I’m using the Gracious Floral embossing folder (EF) and a very simple debossing technique recently shared by Jennifer McGuire

Started by inking the raised side of the EF with white pigment ink.  I would have used silver metallic pigment ink, but my ink pad was dry.  Spritz a piece of blue cardstock with water next, then ran it through the die cutting machine in the EF.

IMG_1528

The inked details get debossed into the cardstock, resulting in a reverse image.  For even more contrast/dimension, inked up a rubber brayer with blue dye ink and rolled it over the panel.  I would have stopped there but I tried covering up a mishap and ink blended around the edges with a dark blue dye ink. 😆  Heat embossed the sentiment from the Gracious Floral stamp set on white cardstock with Liquid Platinum embossing powder.  Assembled the card onto a white card base and added some clear Fairy Dewdroos to finish.

Easy-peasy.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful week.

Just For You
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_5231

Hello everyone!  Today's card features products from the new Gracious Floral release.  I love the stamp, layering stencils and die combination for the floral image.

I began by stamping and die cutting the Gracious Floral image.  Next, I used small blending brushes, dye inks and the layering stencils to color in the image.

IMG_5227

I used white cardstock and the Ringadings 3D Embossing folder to create the background for the card.  I adhered the embossed background to a gold metallic cardstock mat and glued it to a white card base.

I created the gold frame behind the floral image by hot foiling one of the Rectangle Double Border Hot Foil Frames.  I die cut the frame using the Rectangle Frames Die Set.  I glued this to the embossed card background and used foam tape to adhere the floral image.

IMG_5229

I stamped the sentiment with Versa Mark ink and gold heat embossed it.  I used foam tape to adhere it to the card.

I hope you have a great day and that's for stopping by!

Black and White Gracious Floral
by Anne Thompson

This has been a week of experimenting with the newest products from the June Gracious Floral Collection.  I've learned a lot in the process as I've tried different approaches to using the embossing folder, stamp set, stencils, and dies in various combinations.  Here is one of the finished cards I liked the best.

IMG_1934-ink

For this card I used the GRACIOUS FLORAL 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER EF1026 on black card stock.  I used a Koh-I-Noor white pencil laid on its side to lightly go over the embossed image to highlight the raised places.  I then used the coordinating die to cut it out, holding it in place with Washi tape as I ran it through my machine. 

IMG_1936-ink
 
I cut a piece of black card stock 5 1/4 X 4 and added that to the front of a white side-fold note card.  On top of that I added a piece of white/gold swirly paper cut 5 X 3 3/4 from the MAGNOLIA GROVE 6X6 PACK PP1022.  I used three large dimensional foam dots to secure the Gracious Floral cut-out to the card front.

I also like this as a top-fold card.

"It's not easy being green" is the theme for a green color challenge this month on the Outside the Box blog.  That will be my challenge as well for three more posts this month.  Hmmm...I wonder what I will create.

Happy Crafting!

Stencil the center flower on heavy weight white card stock with Distress Oxide Ink Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet for the petals and the center is Frayed Burlap.  Die cut with the matching die in the embossing folder set.  Then 3D emboss using the matching folder.  Apply a pearlescent embossing paste.

Celebrate
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_5238

Happy Thursday everyone!  Today's card has a 4th of July theme to it, but it could be used for a any summer occasion.  I used the new Gracious Floral Stamp for my stamped image to create this card.

I began by ink blending Distress Oxide Inks on a white cardstock panel.  

IMG_5232

Next, I spattered the panel with plain water and used my heat tool to dry it completely.

I stamped my image with Black pigment ink, sprinkled it with clear embossing powder and used a heat tool to melt the embossing powder.

I used a paint brush and water to paint in the flowers and remove some of the distress ink.  

IMG_5235

Once I was happy with the results I dried the panel with my heat tool.  

I used a white colored pencil to add some highlights to the stamped image and lightly spattered it with white ink. 

IMG_5236

I mounted the card panel to a black cardstock mat and adhered it to a white card base.

I die cut the word celebrate from white cardstock and the shadow from black cardstock.  I glued the white die cut word to the shadow die cut and adhered it to the card.

IMG_5237

To finish the card, I added some Clear Fairy Drops to the background and Black Nuvo Drops to the flower center.  That's it for today!  

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
