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.

You Brighten My Day
by Angie Cimbalo

7.10 1

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a fun cheerful mini slimline card made with the new "Happy Daisy Stem" die released this past May.  Here's a closer look at my card:

7.10 2

Here's how I made my card:

1)  I die cut the flowers and colored them with Zig Clean Color markers

2)  I took the Knotted Circle Wreath die and cut it from a piece of 3" by 6" Madras Plaid Coral and Green Plaid, and also from black card stock.

3)  I pieced the black one into the plaid opening after adding it to a 3" by 6" mini slimline card base.

4)  I added the flowers after putting them together and then added both a few gems and a heat embossed sentiment from "Big and Little Words" stamp set.

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!

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:

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.

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.

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.

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!
