Miss You with Exquisite Leaf Frame
by Angie Cimbalo

Feb 20th MB leafy cover

Hello and welcome! It's Angie here today with these newly released "Exquisite Leaf Frame" and "Miss You Posh Script" dies.  The new 2022 Spring Release is full of gorgeous dies, papers, and stamps!  

Here's a closer look at my card for today:

Feb 20th MB close

For the background you can see that I used a 3D embossing folder on the watercolor card stock. I love using thick watercolor card stock with 3D embossing folders because you get such a deep and lovely impression. The word die also has a shadow die with it, but I decided not to use it as I wanted a thin black sentiment in the center and didn't want to draw any attention away from the lovely frame die.

Here's another look:

Feb 20th 2

The frame die was cut twice, once from alcohol inked Yupo paper and a second time from watercolor card stock that was smooshed with the same colors of ink and popped on top with very thin foam tape.

You can see the bottom layer of the leaf frame has more shine to it as it is the Yupo paper with alcohol inks. The top layer is more matte looking and it was turned around so that the leaf layers did not match up. I wanted a layered leaf look, so I decided to not line them up but instead reverse the top layer. I think it gives a really nice look to the card and especially like the contrast of shiny versus matte for the leaves.

Lastly I added some gems from Memory Box around the card front.

Here's one last look:

Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral
by Angie Cimbalo

Best real close

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with another slimline card using the newly released "Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral" die.  Here's a closer look at my card:

Best real close

I dry embossed 2 pieces of dark gray card stock from the "Earth Neutral" paper pack with the "Ringadings 3D Embossing Folder."   I  added both of them them to another larger piece of white card stock (8.5" by 3.5") that was also embossed with the same folder.  To create more texture, I did not line up gray and white the embossed circles.  Above you can see the texture details from that wonderful embossing folder.

Best real close

I heat embossed the sentiment, from "Big and Little Words" stamp set, and put it right where the two gray embossed gray pieces met in the center.  Next I got busy die cutting the parts of the flowers and leaves.  Here's a list of what I used to cut each part of the leaves:

Main flower and small circular flower center:  White glitter paper from "Majestic Hues Glitter" pack

Large center piece:  Light blue glitter paper from "Pastel Glitter" pack

Leaves & tiny flower center:  Some from green card stock from "Twinkling Jewel Glitter" pack and some green from "Lush Green Glitter" pack

Here's another look at the flowers:

Best real close

One thing I really like about these dies is there is not a right or wrong way to assemble the leaves or place them on your card.  You can face them either way and can layer them with whatever paper you like and they look great!

Lastly I added some "Bright Fairy Jewels" in a pretty blue randomly to the card front.

I hope you like my card for today!  I had so much fun creating it!

Hello Friend Slimline
by Angie Cimbalo

Close

Hello and welcome!  It's Angie here today with this slimline card using some newly released dies from Memory Box.  Memory Box released 3 new dies today and they are 2 gorgeous layering flower dies plus this beautiful sentiment die.

The new dies are "Hello Friend Posh Script Die" (94586), "Cottage Flower Stem" (94611) and "Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral" (94618).  

Here's a closer look at my card:

Close

The new flower die has been cut from Yupo paper that was inked with alcohol inks and the flower centers were cut from the glitter papers. I embossed the top portion of the slimline panel after cutting it with the "Wrapped Stitched Slimline" die and then added a strip of the lighter glitter paper to tuck the stems under. Some flowers are popped up and others were glued directly to the background. Both the butterfly and the sentiment were both cut from the glitter papers and after adding them to the card, I added a few gems.

Here's one last look:

3D Poinsettia Embossing on Vellum
by Angie Cimbalo

Close WM

Hello and welcome! I have a Christmas card for you today using a vellum dry embossed poinsettia from Memory Box. I used the 3D Magnificent Poinsettia embossing folder on a piece of vellum and then rubbed Fire Brick Distress Ink directly onto the embossed vellum. After drying it with my heat tool, I fussy cut it out and adhered it to a rectangle die.

Close WM

I matted the white rectangle on red card stock and then onto a white card base. The sentiment is from Memory Box Signature Greetings, stamped and heat embossed in white and the die cut with the coordinating die. Here's one last look at my card:

I hope you like my card for today. I really love how the vellum poinsettia turned out.

Hello and welcome!  I'm up on the Memory Box blog today with a quick and easy card using a 3D embossing folder, a pine needle die, fairy jewels, some glitter, and some heat embossing.

Here's a closer look:

Here's how I made my card:

3)  I added them to the embossed panel and then added three groups of three Christmas Fairy Jewels to the needles.  
 
4)  The sentiment is from Festive Christmas Greetings stamp and die set, stamped on black card stock and heat embossed in white.  
 
5)  Then I die cut it out and added it to the card.

Warmest Wishes Snowmen
by Angie Cimbalo

3

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a glittery "Warmest Wishes" card featuring dies and papers from the latest 2021 Holiday Release!

Here's a closer look at my card.

3

I cut the Memory Box Oval Snowman Collage Dies using papers from both the Memory Box Festive Glitter Pad and the Memory Box Majestic Hues Glitter Pad.  The snowmen and trees are super easy to put together.  I like to use Glossy Accents for my glue when using glitter paper as it's a very heavy duty glue too!  I wanted trees and another snowman so I used the Memory Box Snowman House die set.  

Next I got out the Festive Christmas Greetings stamp for the sentiment strip which was heat embossed in white on black card.  After putting everything togethert, I added white gel pen snow dots to the trees and with markers and I colored the snowmen's noses orange and their mouths and eyes black.

Here's one last look:

I hope you like my card for today!  Memory Box dies cut so well, even from Memory Box Glitter paper which is very thick.  One pass through the die cutting machines and it cuts perfectly.  Hope you will have a chance to look at all the beautiful products in the 2021 Holiday Release!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Peaceful Serene Bird
by Angie Cimbalo

Close left

Hello and welcome! I'm up on the Memory Box blog today with this lovely holiday card using lots of products from both the 2021 and 2020 Holiday releases on this one card. Here's a another look:

Close left

First I took the EF1021 Stunning Mandala 3D Embossing Folder and an through debased side using Versamark and clear embossing powder then melting it with heat gun for a glossy look. Then I ran and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink pad over the raised areas. That created the backdrop for my card.

I cut the 94482 Knotted Circle Wreaths craft die from black and white and pieced it together for a frame for my bird. The greenery behind the bird is a combination of 94481 Forest Pine Branch craft die and 94487 Pointy Pine Needle Sprigs craft die, all die cut and inked with different concentrations of the same Distress Ink. The bird die is from the 94620 Serene Bird and Branch craft die, cut from glitter paper from the GP1008 Majestic Hues Glitter Pad. The sentiment was stamped heat embossed in white and popped up on foam tape. It's from the CL5273D Festive Christmas Greetings clear stamp and die set.  Lastly I added some berries with some Christmas Fairy Crystals.

Here's a couple more views:
