Cut the Cottage Meadow 6x6 print with the largest Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out die.  Emboss the rectangle with the next three dies (evenly spread apart and taped together) to form a  frame for the poppies.

Cut Splendid Poppy Stems from green cardstock.  Cut the flower tops from the pink Delicate Pastel Glitter Pack. Attach it to the green diecuts - slightly offset for dimension.  Cut the double-layered flower tops off, then re-attach them slightly lower, creating shorter stems to fit our background.

Stamp the greeting - from the Cherry Blosssom Wreath Clear Stamps Set - on white cardstock with black ink.

Attach the background and diecuts to a white A-2 card.  Add ¼" dots punched from the lime green Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad.  Attach the greeting with foam tape. Add dots of Lemon Drop Open Studio Fairy Sugar to the flowers.

Blog Blitz Begins Today
by Laura Fulcher

IMG_2381

Greetings friends.  Memory Box has a lot of newly released products and we will be focusing on them this week starting today (Monday, February 17th) and going through Sunday (February 23rd).  Every designer this week will also be offering one of the new products as a prize.  All you have to do is leave comments for a chance to win.

I really wanted to focus on glitter today.  Specifically, I want to talk about the new glitter papers and glitter glue as well as a technique I like to do with glitter glue and acetate.

Memory Box has two new glitter 6" x 6" paper packs.  One of them is called Delicate Pastel and the other is Twinkling Jewel.  Both paper packs include 24 heavy weight sheets (12 colors per pack/2 sheets per color).  The best part?  The glitter does NOT come off onto your fingers!  Your card recipients will not be covered in sparkle.

Another thing I like about the paper?  The glitter glues look fantastic when paired with the papers.  Look how closely these colors match.  You could add a layer of glitter paper to your card and then coordinate it with a glitter glue:

IMG_2377

For my card today, I used some patterned paper for the background and a piece of glitter paper behind the egg opening.  It is hard to tell from the picture, but there is a piece of acetate behind the egg opening for extra support and the white die cut is popped up on top of the glitter paper with foam tape.

IMG_2374

To make the eggs, I wanted to use one of my favorite acetate/glitter glue techniques.  I love the look of acetate, but it is often difficult to figure out how to adhere it to a card so that the adhesive doesn't show.  In this case, I used the glitter glue as the adhesive, so you are meant to see the glue.

IMG_2370

I cut out eggs with white cardstock and acetate.

IMG_2371

I then added a blob of glue to the center of the white cardstock and then stuck the acetate on top.  Notice that I didn't bother spreading out the glue.  I just let the acetate spread out the glue when I place it on top.  It will take a bit of time for it to dry before you can adhere the eggs to the card.  I love using this technique to make shiny butterfly or dragonfly wings.  You could use colored cardstock instead of the white, but I let the colored glitter glue do all of the work and I ended up with specked shiny eggs.

Want to win the new Bunny Egg Collage die?  Leave a comment to this post before 11:59 pm EST on Sunday, February 23rd.  One comment will be chosen at random to win the die.  Winners will be announced on the blog on Monday, February 24th at 6pm EST.  Good luck!

Attach a pair of the new Banded Heart Lockets to the Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Outs on a Valentine for your special guy.  Cool, masculine grays and bright reds create a crisp contrast on today's card.  

Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a simple design to start the workweek.  Change the colors and make it a shower, wedding or anniversary card too!

Cut Banded Heart Locket from gray and white cardstock.  Cut two hearts with the Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out dies - 2.2" wide from red glittered cardstock and 3.1" wide from the Poppystamps Snowspeckle Wide Washi Tape attached to gray cardstock.  It's the perfect washi tape for snow,  confetti or white splattered dots - whatever you need!

Punch a ⅛" hole near the top of the large heart.  Attach the glittered heart to the large heart with doublestick tape.  Attach the white and gray Banded Heart Lockets with gold cord.  Curl the cord.

Pressure-emboss a folded white A-6 card (4-½" x 6-¼") with the 3.1" Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out.  It creates an outline on the front of the card - and frames the greeting on the inside.  Stamp "xoxo" - from the Big and Little Valentines Clear Stamps - with Tulip Red VersaFine Clair in the embossed heart inside the card.

Cut accent strips - ¾" x 3-½" of the gray plaid from the Dashing Holiday 6x6 set, ¾" x 4" of gray cardstock and ¾" x 3-¼" of the dark gray stripes from the Dashing Stripes and Dots 6x6 set.  Attach the hearts and strips to a white A-6 (4-½" x6-¼") card.

Here's an easy way to prep a self-adhesive greeting.  Diecut Love Airy Script from red cardstock - don't remove the diecut or the offcut.  Place three strips of ⅛" ScorTape or Couture Creations tape horizontally across the back of the diecut.   Run it through the machine again to cut the tape - leave it in the die again.  Flip it over onto the card and use a pokey tool to push the self-adhesive greeting onto the card.  The double cutting process makes it easier to cut completely thru the tape and its liner.  Pressing the delicate greeting directly onto the card keeps it intact, without any distortion or wonkiness.

It seems like 2020 just started - but January's almost gone!  Hope our Design Team's Valentine ideas have helped and inspired you to create special cards for your sweeties.

Challenge Inspiration - Friendship Floral Heart Clear Stamps and Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Outs by Jean Okimoto

P1130235

The Valentine's 2020 Collection celebrates more than just the 14th of February.  It's perfect for celebrating friendship, caring and sharing too.  Hello and Happy 2020 - Jean Okimoto here with a versatile design that works for many occasions.

P1130257

Stamp Friendship Floral Heart on pink cardstock with VersaFine Onyx Black.  Emboss it with detail clear powder.  Cut it with the largest Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Outs die.  Cut white vellum with the 1.90" tall die. 

Pressure-emboss a closed/folded white A-6 (4-½" x 6-¼") card with the largest heart die using the plates and embossing mat required for your machine.  My Platinum machine easily embossed both layers of the 80# cardstock - but results may vary depending upon the thickness of your cardstock.  Don't force the card through the machine - you can also unfold the card and emboss just the card front.  

Stamp "grateful" on the pink cardstock and heat-emboss it.  

P1130254

Stamp and emboss the inside greeting and attach it inside the pressure-embossed heart.

Cut a 1-⅜" x 5" strip of gray cardstock.  Cut a ¾" x 4-½" strip of the lighter gray Dashing Stripes and Dots 6x6 print.

Assemble the card and add pink gem stickers.

P1130264

Here's a storage tip - attach your die sets to curtain hooks to keep them organized, handy and visible.  The hook can also be attached to a magnetic tool strip that can then be attached to chrome shelves or a pegboard.

P1130266

Hope you'll have fun designing special Valentines with our latest release - and creating some friendship and all-occasion cards while your supplies are out.  A set of heart notecards would be a sweet and thoughtful Valentine gift too.  

Thanks for visiting.  Looking forward to seeing everyone at the LOVENOTES class at Impress on Saturday!
