Fish cards - logically - are usually guy-cards in bold greens, teals and blues.  Maybe it's time for a fish card in soft, pretty peachy-pinks - with a lot of shimmery sparkle, of course!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a sweet girlie fish card for you today.

I found an ink-blended piece of cardstock in just the right mix of pink and peach, then spritzed and splattered it with Imagine's Gold Shimmer Spritz.  Heat-set it, then cut it with the 2.5" wide Nested Globes die.  

Cut three fish from the Ocean Fish 3D Embossing Folder and Cutting Dies Set from the gold 6x6 in the Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.  Pressure-emboss the fish - one at a time - in the Ocean Fish 3D Embossing Folder.  Attach them to the globe with foam tape.

Attach the Birch Press Shimmer Lines Wide Washi Tape to pale peach cardstock and cut it with Curling Waves dies .

Attach the diecuts to a side-folded white A-2 card.  Add the gold jewels from the Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut an A2-sized sheet of cardstock to cover and protect the card front for mailing.

Combine your favorite dies and embossing folders with your favorite colors and see the designs acquire a whole new look...like a peach-colored underwater scene!

You Are Special to Me With Sweet Poppy Stem
by Angie Cimbalo

7.30 1

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with Hello card made with the new "Sweet Poppy Stem" dies released this past May.  Here's a closer look at my card:

7.30 2

Here's how I made my card:

1)  I die cut the Sweet Poppy Stem dies and colored them with Zig Clean Color markers

2)  I took a piece of plaid paper from the Spring Slim paper pad and cut it to mini slimline size 3" by 6".

3)  I added flower after putting it together and added a few "Lavender Bouquet" dies cut from black in the bottom left corner.

4)  The sentiment is from Birch Press Design's Crystal Lingo stamp and die set and heat embossed in white on black card stock.

Here's one last look:

I hope you like my card for today!  I had so much fun creating it!  Be sure to check out all the new Memory Box goodies on their website HERE.

Curled Waves Heart Hugs by Jean Okimoto

P1018126

Hi everyone - need a friendship card?   Rotate Curled Waves and pair them into swoopy hearts for a new look on a tall slimline. Jean Okimoto here with a simple design in soft shades of peach, gold and gray.  It's versatile too - switch to reds and pinks in February.

Attach Birch Press Design Shimmer Lines Wide Washi Tape to light peach cardstock.  Cut it with the dies from the Curled Waves 3D Embossing Folder and Cutting Dies set.  

Cut three small Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Outs from the gold sheet in the Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad.   Create swoopy, wonky hearts with pairs of the Curled Waves   - overlap the halves and attach them to the gold hearts.

P1018103

Tape a piece of gold cord behind each heart.  Attach the hearts to a pale gray slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½") - use foam dots for the heart on the right.

Cut the delicate Big Hearts Posh Script from the light peach 6x6 in the Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad.  Leave it in the die and attach lined doublestick tape behind the diecut and run it through the machine to cut the tape layer.  Remove the tiny bits in the B, g and s.

Cut the solid Big Hugs background from the pale gray cardstock - and again from cardboard.  Attach the gray layer to the cardboard layer for dimension.  Press the  "self--adhesive" delicate diecut (still in the die) firmly onto the gray layer,

Arrange the gold cord and tape it to the card under the BI section.  Attach the greeting - use foam tape under the BI, H and s.

Cut two of the small Intricate Mini Butterflies from the pale peach sheet in the Delicate Pastel 6x6.

Curled Waves can be more than just waves - they can also be question marks if you ever need a card with questions marks.

Thanks for visiting...see you again on Friday!

Ruffled Poppy Stem - and the Birch Press Design dragonflies - create a garden scene for any occasion.  Textures and metallics add dimension and sparkle with some inspiration for the June Metallic Mania Challenge.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a simple design for a busy weekend.

Pressure emboss Black Glossy Paper (cardstock) with the Geometric Crystals 3D Embossing Folder using the plates required for your machine - place the black side of the cardstock against the smoother side of the folder.   Trim it to 2" x 5-⅜".  

Cut Kraft Woodgrain Paper (cardstock) with the 6-⅛" x 1-¾" Slim Basic Rectangles die.

Cut the white 6x6 Polished Foil Pack paper with the 1-½" Circle Basics die.  

Cut the blossom petals and bud of the Ruffled Poppy  Stem with a coral sheet from the Berry Red Collection.  Cut the center from a yellow-green sheet in the Lush Green Collection.  Cut the stems from a darker green 6x6.  Assemble the blossom and bud.

Gather an assortment of spring blossoms for a Mother's Day card and mix, match and layer them for dimension.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a slimline design for a stylish Mom - with casual upside-down Wooden Alpha W's instead of the proper M's.  We're using the new Birch Press Design Wispy Bloom Contour Layers for their pointy, contrasting look.

Blend salvaged patina and shaded lilac Distress Oxides on smooth white cardstock.  Add a light spritz of water and let the colors blend as they dry.  Cut it with the 2-¼" x 7-¼" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.

Cut Ruffled Blooms from different shades of Lush Green and Fresh Aqua 6x6 sheets.  Cut some extra centers from Lush Green sheets.  

Cut Layered Periwinkle from Vibrant Violet and Twilight Purple 6x6 sheets.

Cut the Birch Press Design Wispy Blooms Contour Layers from Twilight Purple sheets.  Cut the stems from a Lush Green sheet.  

Cut the wide leaves from the Exquisite Leaf Set from a Lush Green sheet.  Trim the larger branch - we're using the 2 lower leaves here.

Attach the ink-blended rectangle - at a wonky angle - to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-⅝"). Attach the leaves and the assembled flowers.

Diecut the letters from the turquoise Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad 6x6.  Use the upside-down W's instead of the M's from the Wooden Alpha set for a casual look. Or use the more formal M.  Either way, the Wooden Alpha dies add great texture to the mirror cardstock.

Attach the yellow-gold Christmas Fairy Jewels.

This design works in a rainbow of color combos...try your favorites!  It would be nice with mirrored floral diecuts and/or leaves too.

If your Mom's card is already done - rotate the M's right-side-up to say "WOW". It would be great for a grad, a new hire or to celebrate a recent promotion or achievement.   Even a new flower garden!

Thanks for visiting - see you on Friday...

Let your Memory Box supplies do the work for you by creating a backdrop for layered roses from Birch Press Design.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here, taking advantage of the Rose Bouquet Wide Washi Tape's design and colors on slimline card.

Cut the Birch Press Design Rose Bunch Contour Layers from 3 colors of the Berry Red 6x6 Collection - a light, medium and dark.  Assemble the roses - the bottom layers have light outlines to serve as guides for adhering the top layers.  Or be creative and just attach the layers wherever you wish - no rules here, it's not paint-by-number.

Here's a tip I've shared before, it's just a friendly reminder.  If you're not sure which size you should diecut for a background or layering strip - cut the larger size. If necessary, just re-cut it to a smaller size instead of starting over again.

Attach Rose Bouquet Wide Washi Tape to white cardstock and cut it with the 1-⅞" x 6-⅞" Slim Rectangle Basics Layer die.

Stamp the greeting - from the Friends and Family Clear Stamps Set - on a light green 6x6 from the Lush Green Collection with Onyx Black VersaFine.  Quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.  Cut the top edge with the short side of the 6-⅜" x 1-⅜" Slim Rectangle Basics Layer die, then trim the bottom. That's easier than using a paper trimmer and cutting (and re-cutting!) the sides until you have an even block.

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card - 3-½" x 8-½".  Add the lime green Bright Jewels.

Designs from Memory Box, Poppystamps and Birch Press Designs are a great combination for any project or  occasion.  I love how they work together and use them often for my card kits.

 Thanks again to everyone who ordered my Cards by Color kit! It sold quickly, and I've added more kits.

Vibrant Violet Blossoms by Jean Okimoto

P1014582 3

Is spring your favorite cardmaking season too?   I love how layered blossoms and foliage create a slimline card for any occasion.  The new Fuddled Leaf Branches Contour Layers from Birch Press Design balances the bold flowers and Bright Jewel gemstones and Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad blossoms add sparkly violet accents.

Hi everyone, Jean Okimoto here with a very layered design from our spring releases.  The Memory Box 6x6 color collections make it easy to select, combine and layer diecuts in coordinating colors.  9 assortments - totaling 108 colors - create a lot of flowers and leafy backgrounds.

Cut white cardstock with the 7-¼" x 2-¼" Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles die.

Cut Ruffled Blooms from different shades of the Vibrant Violet 6x6 Collection.  Cut the smallest flower from the violet Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad 6x6 too.  Cut glittered Star Flowers too.

Cut the background of the Birch Press Design Fuddled Leaf Branches Contour Layers from a medium-green 6x6 in the Fresh Green 6x6.  Cut the detailed top layers from a lighter green sheet.  Leave the top layers in the die and attach ScorTape or Couture Creations doublestick tape behind the diecut pieces.  Run it through the machine again to cut self-adhesive layering pieces.

Attach the top layers to the background leaves - they're lightly scored to indicate where the top layers should be placed.  Here's a link to view the newest products from Birch Press Design.

Cut the 2 leafy branches from the Layered Star Flowers set from the darker green 6x6.

P1014656

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½").  Add the violet Bright Jewels gemstones.

Slimline card dimensions are great for collage-y floral and garden greetings.  They provide a lot of white space to balance the brightness of the flowers.  Slimline cards are also a nice surprise for a recipient who thought it was just another piece of mail.

Hope you'll have a chance to make a few spring cards this week.  Diecut a bunch of flowers, leaves and branches - then build paper bouquets for cards, layouts or mixed media.  You can never have too many flowers!

Thanks for visiting our blog...see you again on Friday!

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:

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

Thanks so much for stopping by!

White and Bright Slimline Design by Jean Okimoto

P1014447

Are you ready for another floral slimline design?  Hi everyone, Jean Okimoto here with more March Challenge inspiration for you.  It's a mix of Memory Box and Birch Press Design - and the reverse of my usual bright flowers on a white background.  

Enjoy the versatility of our latest release - mix and match the diecuts, rotate them for a new look or layer them for extra dimension.  

P1014462

Blend twisted citron, salvaged patina and wilted violet Distress Oxides on smooth white cardstock.  Dry the inks, then add a quick spritz of Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz.  Let it dry, then cut it with the 1-⅞" x 6-⅞" Slim Basic Rectangles die.

Cut Daisy Blossom Stem from heavy white cardstock.  Cut the Birch Press Design Star Flowers Contour Layers too.

Cut the mint and turquoise Star Flowers centers from the new Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.  Cut a chartreuse center for the Daisy Blossom too.  Love how Rainbow Reflections colors match the Distress Oxides - the greeting too!

Assemble the flowers.  The top layer of the Daisy Blossom is used upside-down to create a rounder flower.

Cut the Miss You Posh Script background from heavy white cardstock.  Cut the delicate greeting from the violet sheet in the Rainbow Reflections set.

P1014442

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½").  That's it!

Chose your favorite colors and create a stash of ink-blended backgrounds for your favorite Memory Box, Birch Press Design and Poppystamps designs.  Diecut a bunch of blossoms, leaves and stems too - to save some time when you need a quick card.

Thanks very much for visiting our blog - have a great weekend!

Hi - Jean Okimoto here with some March Challenge inspiration on a floral slimline design.  The new Winsome Rose and Leaves Contour Layers set from Birch Press Design makes it easy to build detailed, dimensional blossoms with the Berry Red 6x6 Collection.  

Creating intricate layered flowers is simple with our 6x6 paper collections and the latest release.  It's like paint-by-number - with colorful cardstock instead of a paintbrush!

Cut white cardstock with Hex Half Pinpoint.  Cut it with a portion of the Pinpoint Leaf Plate.

Cut Verdant Arch from a light green 6x6 in the Lush Green Collection.  Cut the solid leaf backgrounds in the Winsome Rose and Leaves Contour Layers set from the same green 6x6.  Cut the detailed leaf overlays and the flower center  from a darker green 6x6.  Assemble the layered leaves.

The pinpoint background matches the Verdant Arch - and the Half Hex creates a solid backdrop for the bold flower to stand out.

Cut the Winsome Rose from 3 shades of Berry Red 6x6 cardstock.  Assembling the rose is easy - the 2 bottom layers have lightly scored guidelines showing exactly where the layering pieces should be attached.  Assemble the rose and add the green center.

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½").

Stamp the greeting - from the Signature Greeting Clear Stamp and Die Set - on white cardstock with Shady Lane VeraFine Clair.   Dry the ink, then cut the greeting with the coordinating die.  Cut green cardstock with the greeting die and attach it - offset to the right - for dimension.

Add pink/coral Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.  

The 6x6 Color Collections make it easy to coordinate colors and build layered designs like leaves and flowers. Folllow the outlines on the layering pieces for accurate placement - or create your own unique designs.  Have fun mixing, matching and layering the beautiful flowers and leaves in our latest releases at Memory Box, Poppystamps and Birch Press Design!
