Hello with Foiling & Mirror Cardstock
by Angie Cimbalo

1wm

Hello and welcome! It's Angie here today with this shiny fun "hello" card.

I've used some new and older products, all from Memory Box.

Newly released items used:
94658 "Hello Daily Script"
MBF009 "Sunburst Hot Foil"

Other items:
GEM102 "Winter Fantasy Fairy Gem Stones"
30036 "Stitched Circle Layer Dies"
FP1002 "Vintage Pastel Mirror Paper Pad"
94621 "Pinpoint Daisy Background Die"
JWL005 "Christmas Fairy Jewels"

Here's another look at my card:

3wm

I used Gemini "Aurora" foil with the "Sunburst Hot Foil Die" on black card stock and then cut it our with a circle die. I cut a mat for it with the next larger die from silver mirror card stock. Next I cut the "hello" word die from black, silver, and peach mirror card stock, and the bigger shadow outline "hello" die from the black circle.

I pieced the "hello" parts to together, even inserting the little black foiled pieced around the "h" and the "o" so you can see the whole foiled sunburst. Next I took an A2 size piece of card stock and used the "Pinpoint Daisy Die" to get a fun dotted background for my card.

I added the circle element in the bottom right corner, cut the excess off and put left over pieces on the top and left side of the card. To finish my card I added large and small jewels to the ends of the rays in the foiled sunburst pattern with the sentiment in it.

Here's one last look:

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with this fun thank you card made with newly released dies and hot foil dies.  Here's a close up look at my card:
 
AngiesignatureNEW
 
   To make my card I smooshed purple and pink Distress Inks and water onto watercolor card then trimmed the panel to A2 size.  I added a strip of washi tape to the left side and then more to a piece of vellum to use to cut the flowers from.  I added a thin black strip of card stock next to the washi tape and then cut the new "Sunshine Daisy Stems" from black card and from the washi tape /vellum combo.  I layered the black outline flower on top of the floral washi tape/vellum combo and then cut off the vellum stems and just left the black ones .  I added the flowers to the watercolor panel and then I used the new "Posh Thank You" hot foil plate with some Gemini "Aurora" foil on black card to made the sentiment.  After adhering the whole watercolor panel to the card base, I added a few pastel jewels to the front of the card and added the whole panel to an A2 card base.

Exquisite Leaves Birthday Card
by Angie Cimbalo

1

Hello and welcome! It's Angie here today with this mini slimline birthday card featuring new hot foiling dies from Memory Box. Here's a close up look so you can see the foiling better:

Real close

I used both the "Exquisite Leaves" (MBF002) and "Posh Happy Birthday" (MBF011) with Rose Gold foil.

2

The top panel is from the off white Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad (FP002) attached to a mini slimline card base. I used a strip of rose gold card stock from the same paper pad over where the two leave clusters meet and then added the sentiment over it.

Lastly, I added a few gold/amber jewels also from Memory Box.
Here's one last view:

Such a Good Friend
by Angie Cimbalo

Close

Hello and welcome! It's Angie here today with this plaid mini slimline card for a dear friend. I used a lot of different products today to create this card.

First of all I used the "Nested Globes" die set - 94532 to do some partial die-cutting. I ran card stock through my die cutting machine with the bottom cutting line of the globe hanging off the edge of the cutting plates so it wouldn't cut through the paper. Then I measured how long I wanted the oval panel to be to fit on my card front, and turned the die around the other way, again with the bottom flat side cutting line hanging off the edge of my cutting plates. This created my pretty oval shape for the focal point of my card and sentiment placement.

The leaves were actually made with the Pinpoint Leaf Plate 94381. I took white card stock and ran it through my die cutting machine with the pinpoint die, then added Distress Oxide Mermaid Lagoon ink direct from the pad on to the paper. That left little tiny white dots where all the pinpoints were. Next, I fussy cut out a few of the leaves and added them around the edges of my oval panel. I also cut a black mat in the same globe shape to help offset the white from the plaid a little better.

Here's a closer look at my card:

Close

The paper for the main background on the card came from the Madris Blue and Purple Plaid paper pad PP1014. I used the Layered Star Flower dies 94612, to cut my flower from peach, pink and orange Vintage Pastel Mirror Card Stock FP1002, and added a Pastel Jewels to the center of the flower and scattered on the front of the card.

The sentiment is from the Friends and Family stamp set CL5276, stamped in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.

Here's one last look at my card:

Masculine Best Day Ever
by Angie Cimbalo

2

Hello and welcome! I'm up on the Memory Box blog today with this masculine birthday card I made for a family member. I used the "Put in in Gear" 3D embossing folder with a sentiment from the "You Anchor Me."

Here's another look at my card:

2

Here's how I made my card:

1) Dry emboss a piece of Memory Box watercolor paper, then apply Distress Oxide Vintage Photo ink directly to the paper with the ink pad.

2) I decided to make a mini slimline card so I cut only a portion of the embossed panel with scissors to use on my card front.

3) I glued the portion of the embossed/inked panel that I wanted onto a piece of Kraft Woodgrain card stock also from Memory Box measuring 3" by 6".

4) I matted that panel on a brown piece of card stock that was just slightly larger, and then another mat of the Kraft Woodgrain paper that was 3.5" by 6.5".

5) Then I added that to my card base which was 7" by 6.5", scored at 3.25 on the 6.5" side.

6) I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair Pinecone ink and heat embossed in clear.

7) Lastly I added Autumn Jewels and Crystals to the card front.

Here's one last look at my card:

I hope you like my masculine birthday card that I made today. I usually struggle with masculine cards but this gear 3D embossing folder is just perfect for it! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Sending Oceans of Love
by Angie Cimbalo

Really close

Hello and welcome! Today I have a card in blue and yellow using some awesome collage dies.

Here's a closer look at my card:

Really close

The fish were diecut from watercolor paper that was "smooshed" with yellow, orange and blue Distress inks. I also cut them from black to layer each fish so they appear to have a little shadow.

The water background was made with lots of dark blues and a little purple watercolor. While it was drying, I cut the following dies from white card stock and layered them one on top of each other.

Bubble Coral Collage Die
Deepwater Collage Die
Kelp Collage Die

Really close

These dies are so amazing because each opening is a different size making them easy to layer to get a really realistic and fun look. They are magical and ingenious designs, and help us crafters and card makers look like masterful creators, just by combining these collage dies together!

Once the watercolor panel dried, I added the fish, some with glue and some popped up on foam tape. The sentiment, from the "Deep Blue Ocean" stamp set, was heat embossed in white on black card stock. To finish my card I added lots of clear and "Winter Fairy Jewels" and "Clear Fairy Jewels" inside the die cut bubbles and scattered around the card front.

Here's one last look:

Right

I hope you like my card and thanks so much for stopping by!

"Love You" featuring Daisy Blossom Stem Dies
by Angie Cimbalo

1

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with this beautiful floral and woodgrain mini slimline card made with the newly released "Daisy Blossom Stem" die and the "Love You Posh Script" die.

Here's a closer look at my card:

2

Here's how I made this card:

1) Cut a piece of Memory Box "White Woodgrain" card stock to 3" by 6" and applied Distress inks direct to paper. I started with "Tea Dye" then added "Brushed Corduroy" and finished with "Rusty Hinge" making the outside edges the darkest.

2) I die cut both dies from the "Daisy Blossom Stem" die set 3 times from white card stock.

3) Next I colored them with alcohol markers and colored pencils to give them depth and a realistic look.

4) I cut the colored diecuts into pieces of stems and flower and leaves and arranged them on my woodgrain panel.

5) Once I was happy with the arrangement I started gluing them down with liquid glue and popping some up on foam tape.

6) I cut the "Love You Posh Script" word die outline twice from white card stock and glued them together.

7) I cut the thinner word die in the set three times, two from white card stock and once from thick watercolor paper.

8) I colored one of the white thin word dies with the same green markers and colored pencils that I used on the leaf dies then stacked all 3 together then added them to the outline with glue.

9) I cut a card base 6.25" by 6.5" and scored it on the 6.5" side at 3.25 so my card base is slightly larger than my woodgrain panel.

10) I added the woodgrain panel to the card base with double sided adhesive foam and then added some tiny yellow Memory Box jewels to finish the card.

Here's one last look:

I hope you like my card for today. I had a lot of fun creating it and really love how it turned out. Memory Box dies are so versatile and beautiful - I really enjoy working with them to create one of a kind cards.

See you next time,

Hello You Are Special To Me
by Angie Cimbalo

1

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with this mini slimline card inspired by my teammate Laura. She had recently shared a gorgeous card with an inked background and white die cuts and it sparked an idea to combine dies from the latest release with stem dies from previous releases.  I especially wanted to use the "Seed Stems" die and add jewels to the seeds so that's what I did.

Here's a close up look at my card:

1

I used the following dies to create the bottom of my card. On some of the dies, I just used a leaf or two, or a shortened piece of one of the stems to fill in open spaces on my design.

94615 Tall Frilly Leaf Stems
94654 Fresh Cut Stems
94537 Wildflower Stems
94535 Lavender Stems
94534 Seed Stems
94538 Daisy Stems

And for my sentiment I used the Birch Press Design CL8155 Crystal Lingo

All of the stems and dies were cut from watercolor card stock, also from Memory Box.

To make the background I cut a piece of card stock 3" by 6" and ink blended the following Distress Oxide Inks: Fossilized Amber, Peacock Feathers, Evergreen Bough, and Dried Marigold.  Then I spritzed it with my water sprayer for some more texture.
Once it was dry, I splatted it with black paint, then began to assembly my card.

Often while making this card I stopped to take pictures of where I put the stems and then I'd re-arrange them and take another picture. By looking at the pictures on my phone, it helps me see what layouts I like and which look odd to me. I do this a lot when I design cards because it really helps to step back and look at it that way. Next, I added the inked panel to a 6.5" by 7" (score this side at 3.5") card base with foam tape.

1

Lastly I added lots of Fairy Jewels, also from Memory Box. I love the gems and jewels from Memory Box as they come in so many variety of colors in one pack and they also have clear ones too.

Here's one last look at my card:

Friends Become Family
by Angie Cimbalo

Close use

Hello and welcome! It's Angie here today with this light and pretty card for a dear friend.

Here's a close up look of my card:

Close use

Here are the steps to make this card:

1) Emboss A2 panel of watercolor card stock with the "Blooming Sweet Pea" 3D embossing folder

2) Use one of the smaller "Stitched Rectangle Layers" dies and cut out of the center of the embossed panel

3) Add "Rose Gold Metallic Gilding Paste" from Cosmic Shimmer to the raised areas of the small embossed white rectangle

4) Cut a little larger rectangle with same die set from "White Woodgrain Card Stock", then swiped it also with the same rose gold paste.

5) Stamp the sentiment from "Friends and Family" stamp set in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and heat emboss in clear on a piece of vellum.

6) Add the vellum to some double sided adhesive, then trim the edges and add to the small rectangle (You can see the rose gold enhanced embossing through and behind the vellum."

7) Add the vellum + embossed rectangle to the woodgrain rectangle and then to the main large A2 white embossed card front panel.

8) Cut the "Glade Butterfly" die from black card stock and added to top left side of card

9) Add pink "Pastel Fairy Jewels" to the butterfly middle and in the corners of vellum

Here's another look at my card: Close use

I really like how you can see the light rose gold raised areas of the dry embossing peeking through the vellum heat embossed sentiment. Even though sentiment on this card is the focal point, it's nice to see the embossed patterned on the white background continue through to behind the vellum.

Here's one last look:

Close use

The sentiments in this stamp set "Family and Friends" are so sweet and there are a lot of them in the set.
I hope you enjoyed my card for today, I really had fun creating it.
