Merry Christmas with Frilling Snowflake Ornament
by Angie Cimbalo


Close

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a fun holiday card featuring the new "Frilling Snowflake Ornament" die.  Here's a closer look at my card:

 

Close

The sentiment is from a previous holiday release and it's called "Special Merry Christmas" and I cut it in both silver and black glossy card stocks and stacked them up.  

The ornament backs are cut from the glossy black card stock and the ornament itself is cut from silver mirror card stock from the Vintage Mirror Pad.  I added the silver outline ornament to the black background die cut and then placed all 3 of them on the card front, with 2 of them hanging off the edges.  After the glue dried, I cut the extra of the sides of the card.  

Lastly I added lots of jewels and crystals, all from Memory Box, to jazz up my ornaments.  I really like all the colorful gems with the silver and black!  

Here's one last look:

Peace on Earth
by Angie Cimbalo

Close

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a holiday card featuring some of the newly released 2022 Holiday products!  For my card today I used:

Forest Path 94702

Layered Birds 94684

and the Sweet Christmas stamp set CL5283

Here's a closer look at my card:

Close

To make my card I started by cutting the Forest Path die from some white card stock and then I colored the trees with alcohol markers.  I ink blended the snow line with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide ink and a dauber and then on a separate piece of white card stock I ink blended Speckled Egg Distress Oxide ink on the top half for the sky behind the trees.  I added the Forest Path panel to the inked card with liquid glue.

Next I cut the Layered Birds from white card stock and a 2nd piece of white card stock that I colored with dark red alcohol markers.  I pieced the red and white parts of the bird together with liquid glue. and added them to the trees.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Christmas stamp set in red on the right side of the snowy field and then took Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and added snow to the sky, a little on some trees and then along the path on both sides.  When you heat it up, it puffs up much like a Marvy snow pen.  Either of those would work to create some puffy snow it you'd like to add that to your card.

Here's one last look at my card:

I really like how this turned out and had so much fun creating with the new release products.  Be sure to check them all out HERE.

Two Cards with Starry Collage & Wild Spiral
by Angie Cimbalo

Main BF

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with two fun cards using goodies from the fall release. Here are the new dies I used for today's card:

Starry Collage 94631
Wild Spiral 94629

I also used the previously released Geometric Crystals embossing folder 1016EF and the Sylvan Butterfly 94577.

Here's another look at my card:

BF close

I used watercolor card stock and smooshed lots of Distress oxide inks and after it dried I used it to die cut the stars, butterfly background and I also cut 2 spirals out of it.

I used the 2 swirls that I cut from the watercolor smooshed cards and backed them in white card that had been embossed with embossing folder. The sentiment is from the Big & Little Words stamp set, stamped in black in on white card. Here's another look:

The butterfly background was cut from the same watercolor card and the top of the butterfly was cut with black card. I added blue tiny gems from the Christmas Jewels set. The card base was made by taking a mini slimline card and cutting it to 3" by 5.5" and I added a diagonal black card piece to give it more interest. Here's one more look:

Here's one last look at card #1:

Now on to card #2:

Main star

I save one panel of watercolor smooshed card that I cut the swirl out of to be my card's background. I backed the opening of the swirl with black card and then added the whole panel to an A2 card base. Next I added layers stars, black and watercolor, randomly around the card. The sentiment is from Big and Little Words stamp set heat embossed in white on black card. I really like the way this turned out, it almost looks like a cartoon drawing!

Flying Witch with Creepy Cabin
by Angie Cimbalo

AngiesignatureNEW
Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a Halloween card featuring some of the newly released fall dies.  The new dies I used are:
 
1)  Flying Witch 94624
2)  Creepy Cabin 94634
3)  Boo to You Posh Script 94587
 
Here's a close up look at my card:
 
AngiesignatureNEW
To make my card I cut the witch and the cabin from both white card and glossy black card stock. This is very thick and nice black glossy card stock released earlier by Memory Box and it's such high quality!  
 
In the picture below you can see both cabin cuts.  The one of the left was cut right out of white card and left alone.  The black one was trimmed out of the opening so I could layer it on top of the white one with liquid glue.  For the background behind the cabin inside the opening, I ink blended a piece of white card with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink on the top half, and Dried Marigold Distress Oxide on the bottom half.
 
Next I took the smaller die from the Circle Basics 30087 set from white card that I had ink blended with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink.  I glued that to the background for my night moon in the sky.
 
Below you can see me working on the cabins and the ink blending.
 
AngiesignatureNEW
 
After gluing the black cabin over the white one, I cut the whole panel with a Stitched Rectangle Layers die 30009, and then used the same die and then next size smaller to create a glossy black stitched frame for my image.  I mounted that whole panel on foam tape in the bottom right corner.
 
AngiesignatureNEW
 
Next I glued the white and black witches together slightly offset and then added them to the card.  I had to use foam tape on the left side since the top of the broom, her arm and leg are on the raised rectangle panel.  This made it all even.  I did the same thing with the sentiment, layered, raised up the part not on the rectangle with foam tape to make if all level on the card.
 
Lastly I added both Autumn Fairy Crystals and Autumn Fairy Jewels to the card.  Memory Box has lots and lots of gems, jewels and crystals to choose from including clear ones.  The are fall colors, winter colors, Christmas colors and clear ones that look like water droplets and the best part is the come in different sizes.  Here's on last look at my card:

I had so much fun making this card.  I like to make Halloween cards for my grandkids, even though some are getting older, it's always fun to receive a card in the mail no matter how old you are!

Sending You Oceans of Love
by Angie Cimbalo

Wm no prod

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with this fun slimline "oceans of love" card!
Here's another look at my card:

Main wm

Here's how I created my card:

1) Dry emboss the "Ocean Fish 3D embossing folder/die set" on white card stock. I lightly spray both sides of the card stock so I get a deep impression and no cracking on the paper.
2) Using the coordinating dies, cut out each of the fish.
3) With rainbow colored inks and an ink blender, add color to the top portion of each fish.
4) Ink blend some extra turquoise card stock so you can cut the "Kelp Collage" & "Deepwater Collage" foliage from it for the bottom of your card.
5) Take a slimline piece of card stock, I used 3.5" by 8.5" and dry emboss the "Waves" 3D embossing folder on the top half first and then run it through again on the bottom half. Don't worry about the seam you see, you will cover it with the sentiment.
6) Heat emboss the sentiment from the "Deep Blue Ocean" stamp and die set.
7) Add the fish in rainbow order, some with glue some with foam tape, the sentiment in the middle on the seam, and the foliage on the bottom.
8) Lastly add some clear "Fairy Drops" around the front of the card.

Below you can see the fish embossing folder and stamp set I used.

Sending Heartfelt Prayers
by Angie Cimbalo

6.30 1

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a sympathy card using some of the newly released floral dies.

Here's a closer look:

6.30 2

To make my card I first swiped pink and green ink pads direct to watercolor card to create a textured background.  I die cut the flowers and stems using "Graceful Poppy Stems" and "Ruffled Poppy Stems" dies, from pink and green card stock and used some watercolor markers to add a little interest to them.  After putting the flowers together, I arranged them on the front of the card and added a heat embossed sentiment from "Big & Little Words" stamp set.  Lastly I added a few gems.  

Here's one last look:

I hope you like my sympathy card for today.  I always find these difficult to make because it's such a sad occasion to create for.  Hopefully, I've given you some inspiration to create cards like this when you need them.

Rainbow Butterfly Birthday
by Angie Cimbalo

1

Hello and welcome!  It's Angie here today with a fun full size slimline card made with 2 new products from the latest release.

1)  Intricate Mini Butterflies Dies  94641 and 2)  Posh Happy Birthday Hot Foil Plate MBF011

Here's a closer look at my card:

2

This card was super fast to create and here's how I did it.

1)  Ink blend on a  large piece of white card stock with your favorite inks in rainbow order.  I choose lighter colors of Distress Oxide Ink for a more pastel look but you could use any inks you have.

2)  I cut one strip about 2 inches wide for my car and added it to the card base with two thin strips of black card stock on either side.

3)  Using the rest of your ink blended card stock, die cuts several butterflies with the mini butterfly die.  It's great because it cuts out a lot of them all at once.   I cut it about 3 times so I would have lots of butterflies to chose from and some left over for my stash.

4)  Add some color to the edges of the butterflies.  I used colored pencils and also tan ink with a finger dauber, just to give them a little more depth and contrast.

5)  Arrange the butterflies like you want and glue only the center of each down to the rainbow strip.

6)  Once dried, lift the wings for dimension and add tiny gems to their back centers.

7)  With the hot foil plate create your sentiment.  I used Aurora Foil from Gemini on black card stock and then used the coordinating die to cut it out.

8)  After glueing the sentiment on, I added little antenna for each butterfly and random black dots with a fine tip black marker all over the card front.

Here's one last look:

I hope you like my rainbow card for today.  I'm looking forward to sending this to a friend who loves rainbows!

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:

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.

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.
