Joy and Cheer Card with Serene Bird and Gentle Pine Needle Sprigs
by Anne Thompson

Today's card is one that can easily be made in multiples and varied by changing the papers used.

IMG_3359-ink

That's it!  To use an assembly line process, cut multiples of everything--circles, the two parts of the Joy and Cheer sentiment, pine needle sprigs, and birds--and have a stack of blank notecards and the sheet of jewels nearby.  The fun will be in arranging what you choose for each card from your stack of materials.

Build a Knotted Circle Wreath base for the new Florentina Wreath and add sprigs of holly, pine and glittered berries. Coordinate it and the greeting with a strip of Madras Plaid Coral and Green in matching shades of pink, peach, coral and green.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another design from our 2021 Holiday Collection.

Cut Holly Bundle twice from the chartreuse 6x6 in Lush Green Collection.  We're using 2 large and 1 medium leaf here - save the extras for another project.  

Cut Pine Needle Trio from the chartreuse 6x6 too.  Trim the largest piece - it'll be the bottom sprig on the completed card.  

Cut the berries from a peachy pink 6x6 in the Berry Red Collection.  Shake Sunlit Gold Glitter Glue vigorously, then squirt some onto an acrylic stamp block - a solid, washable surface that's always handy for inky or gluey tasks.  Spread the glitter glue onto 3 berries and set them aside to dry.

Prep the Florentina Wreath and the big Knotted Circle by rubbing them briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help release the detailed diecuts.  Cut the wreath and circle with two shades of green from the Lush Green 6x6 Collection.  Attach the circle behind the wreath.

Cut a lighter green 6x6 with the 2-¾" x 4" Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die.  Cut a vertical 2" x 6-⅜" strip of the Madras Plaid Coral and Green sheet - there's a bit of extra paper at the top for that  additional ⅜".

Stamp the greeting from the new Yuletide Moments Clear Stamp Set - with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair - on a coral sheet from the Berry Red Collection.  Heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.

Attach everything to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½") - use foamtape for the greeting.

Designing and color selection is easy with the coordinating options available in the 6x6 solids, prints, plaids, polished foils and glittered cardstock.  Hope you're taking advantage of these great papers as you're designing and creating your holiday cards!

Thanks for visiting - see you next week...

Build a Woodgrain Gilded Sleigh by Jean Okimoto

Thank you and Happy Veterans Day to everyone celebrating today!

The new Gilded Sleigh is now a whitewashed wooden sleigh ready to deliver a DIY Christmas tree.  Felt Resting Birds and Christmas Fairy Jewels add soft texture and sparkle to the Garland 6x6 print.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a holiday mix of classic favorites and designs from our newest release.

Use a large brayer - or an ink pod - to apply a layer of Brilliance Starlite Black ink to White Woodgrain Paper.  Ink pods resemble freeze-dried marshmallows - and skim the surface of textured and/or embossed designs to apply ink to the raised areas.  Dry the ink, then cut the Woodgrain Paper (it's actually cardstock) with the main Gilded Sleigh die. 

Sand the silver Polished Foil 6x6 sheet with a medium sanding block or sandpaper to give it a weathered, worn look to match the wooden sleigh.  Cut the runner and top trim from the distressed foil paper.  Assemble the sleigh.

Cut two big branches of the Pine Needle Trio from the green Festive Glitter Pad sheet.  Layer them - slightly offset - and trim the branches to create a Christmas tree.  Tape the tree behind the sleigh.

Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to red felt and diecut Resting Birds.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps adhesives from saturating it.  

Cut the Garland 6x6 print with the largest Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die.  Attach it to a side-folded red A-2 card.  The bright red card emphasizes the wrapped stitches.  Assemble the card and attach green Christmas Fairy Jewels.

Cut the Joy and Cheer background from a sheet in the Lush Green Collection.  Cut the delicate words from the red Polished Foil Pack sheet.

Add texture to diecuts and give them a bright new look - or as we did here, a weathered, vintage appearance.  Trim pine branches and create a Christmas tree too. It's easy to add special details and a unique look to your Memory Box designs!

Peace Love and Joy
by Trina Pham

B21A2954-72CB-4E34-8B85-2A3296278BEA

Hello everyone.   I’m in full Christmas card making mode and am counting down with the Hallmark channel as they play Christmas movies 24/7 till then! 😆   So I have a mini slimline Christmas card to share today created with many products from the current Holiday collection.  

Started by die cutting the Serene Bird from alcohol marker-friendly paper and colored it with Copic markers.   The pine needles were die cut out of green paper from the Lush Green paper pack.   Shading was added to them using a finger brush and Rustic Wilderness distress ink (DI).  The pine cones were die cut out of brown plaid paper from the Woodsy Plaid paper pack.   I thought the bits of gold in it tied in nicely with the sentiment.   White gouache paint was added to the ends of each of their layers with a sponge dauber. 

41C61578-BC24-4DF7-940D-23101D351A53

For the background, mixed media paper was trimmed to 3.25”x6.25” and put through my die cutting machine along with the Slim Pinpoint Burst Plate.   Squeezed Lemonade, Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch DI’s were then ink blended on with blender brushes.   Arranged and adhered the bird, pine needles and pine cones to the panel next before splattering with white gouache paint for a snowy effect.

F8D17F48-EF01-4DBA-9C3D-C016F4584E0A

The Bennet Alphabet letters were die cut next out of gold glitter paper from the Majestic Hues Glitter Pad and their shadow from scraps of Bristol paper.   Heat embossed ”love and joy” from the Festive Christmas Greetings stamp set with white embossing powder on black cardstock, then assembled the card onto a white 3.25”x6.25” card base to finish.

And this does it for today.   Thank you for joining me.   Have a wonderful day.

Joy and Cheer
by Michelle Bala

28 

Hello there! Michelle here, with a simple card today. No coloring, no stamping, just die cutting and gluing.  I die cut the Joy and Cheer word die using three different glitter colored papers. I used the champagne glitter die cut as the base. Than I trimmed the word Joy, and Cheer from the other die cut colored glitter words. I adhered them directly to the champagne glitter base.

28

I adhered the sentiment onto its shadow base. Next, I die cut the pattern paper and adhered that to the card base with foam adhesive. 
28

Last, I added a few die cut pine boughs and amber colored crystals.

Thanks for taking a peek! Hope you have a great week!

Contempo Poinsettia, Joy Posh Script…and Glitter by Jean Okimoto

P1009590

Add glitter to the bold new Contempo Poinsettia and delicate Joy Posh Script on a Madras Plaid slimline design.  Treasure Chest Fairy Gemstones add more sparkle...there's a lot happening on this card!  Happy weekend, Jean Okimoto here with more designs from our 2021 Holiday Collection.

P1009614

Cut Contempo Poinsettia from a dark coral 6x6 in the Berry Red Collection.  Trim the surrounding solid area to 1-¾" x 4".  

Cut the petals from the red sheet in the Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad and remove the petals.   Flip the outline diecut over onto a non-stick surfacee and attach strips of lined doublestick tape across the width of every 3 petals.  Use just enough tape to hold the petals - it doesn't need to be completely taped.  Flip it over and attach the glittered petals.

Cut a ½" square of the yellow-gold sheet from the Majestic Hues Glitter Pad.  Attach it behind the tiny holes in the center.

Cut the solid Joy Posh Script background from the reverse side of White Woodgrain Paper.  Pressure-emboss it with the delicate Joy diecut  and the plate(s) and rubber embossing mat required for your machine.  Cut the delicate Joy from the yellow-gold Majestic Hues sheet.  Assemble the greeting.

Cut a 1-¾" x 6-⅜" strip of the Madras Plaid Coral and Green sheet - cut it vertically for a bit of extra length at the top.  Trim the rough top edge.

Attach the diecuts to a White Woodgrain slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½") - use foamtape for the greeting.  Add Treasure Chest Fairy Gemstones.

Cover the card front with a slimline-sized layer of cardstock to protect it in the mail.

The Contempo Poinsettia Stencil comes with a matching stencil - we'll use it for another design later.

Spread the Cheer!
by Angie Cimbalo

Wm1

Hello and welcome!
It's Angie here today with this masculine "Spread the Cheer" holiday card!
Here's a closer look:

Wm close

As you can see I used a lot of masculine looking colors and items on my card.
First I used the "Curled Holly Branch die" and cut it twice from a dark brown card stock from the "Earth Neutral paper pack, and once from plaid paper from the "Woodsy Plaid" paper pack and layered them slightly offset. I took Distress Ink in "Tea Dye" and inked the edges of the holly die cut. Next I took a piece of a brown paper sack and tore a square piece out of it, then ran it through my embossing machine with the Ringadings 3D embossing folder. I also inked the torn edges of paper sack square with the ink.

I adhered it to the center of a square piece of card stock 4.5" by 4.5" and added both the holly cut and a sentiment from the "Festive Christmas Greetings" stamp set. Lastly I added some "Autumn Fairy Crystals" to the berries on the holly die cut. If you look at the picture below, you can see just how pretty those crystals are as they reflect light. Just gorgeous!

Here's one last look at my card:

I hope you like my card for today. It's a great masculine design, if you are needed masculine cards for family or friends. Be sure to check out all the amazing new release items in the 2021 Memory Box Holiday Release. There's just so many awesome products!

Glitter, Glitter and More Glitter by Jean Okimoto

Turn the new Contempo Holly on its side and build an arrangement of glittered diecuts for holiday greetings.   Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a versatile layered slimline design you can make in a wide range of colors - traditional reds & greens, jewel tones, white-on-white or winter pastels.

The Contempo Holly set includes a matching stencil -  save that for another card.  Cut Contempo Holly from white cardstock and trim it to about 1-¾" wide (or high, on this horizontal design). Attach it to a white slimline card (8-½"x 3-⅝").  

Cut the leaves from the chartreuse Frosted Glitter Pad sheet.  Cut Pine Needle Trio from the chartreuse sheet too.  Attach them to the card - offset the holly leaves for dimension. 

P1009478

Cut Layered Poinsettia from a pink 6x6 in the Vibrant Violet Collection.  Vigorously shake the Dewdrop Glitter Glue and squirt dots of it onto the diecuts.  I already spread the glue on the top center diecut - it adds a glossy, glittery iridescent sparkle.  Spread the glue on the diecuts and gently crease them along the center lines.  Set them aside to dry.

Adding a layer of Open Studio Glitter Glue to detailed diecuts like Layered Poinsettia adds gloss and sparkle - and highlights the details.  They come in 23 beautiful shades and are perfect for holiday designs.

Cut the center section with the three circles twice from a yellow sheet in the Sunny Orange Collection.  Cut a 1-¼" circle of the pink cardstock with a Circle Basics die.  Assemble the poinsettia - use the circle as a base to hold the pieces.  It's a lot easier that way...trust me!  Layer the 2 yellow pieces in the center.

Stamp JOY - from the new Festive Christmas Greetings Clear Stamp and Die Set - on white cardstock with Starlite Black Brilliance.  Dry the ink, then cut the greeting with the matching die.  Cut two pink backgrounds and layer them slightly above and below the stamped greeting for dimension and a bit of color.  Attach the greeting with foamtape.

Add Winter Fantasy Fair Gemstones (I used the color from the center column).  Here's a tip - punch ¼" circles of cardstock in a similar color and use them as 'markers' (no adhesive!) to determine the perfect locations for the gemstones before you adhere the actual gemstones.

Cover the card front with a slimline-sized layer of cardstock to protect it for mailing.

Big thanks to everyone who ordered the BOO! card kits from Impress and Stamps and Memories.  Hope you liked the designs, especially the spooky eyes slimline!
