Celebrate World Cardmaking Day with the Oval Snowman Collage from the 2021 Holiday Collection.  It's just one of many great new dies, 6x6 plaids and glitter cardstock and a beautiful assortment of fairy drops, crystals and dewdrops.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a frosty winter collage design.

Cut the large Stylish Rectangle Trio from white cardstock.  Cut the rectangle with the Oval Snowman Collage.   Color his nose and arms with orange and brown markers.

Cut a pale blue 6x6 from the Stormy Blue Collection with the Stylish Rectangle.  Save the delicate frame for another project - we're using the interior offcut here.  Cut the offcut with the top portion of the new Slim Confetti Plate.  Attach it behind the snowman rectangle.

Cut a 3-⅜" x 4" piece of a white 6x6 from the Delicate Pastels Glitter Pad.  Attach it behind the Stormy Blue piece to create a frosty dotted background.  Attach the 3-layered diecuts to a slightly darker blue A6 card (4-½" x 6-¼").  Attach the delicate Stylish Rectangle frame.

Cut the hat from black cardstock.

P1008569

Cut the scarf from a blue plaid in the new Woodsy Plaid 6x6 pack.

Attach an adhesive label sheet or sticker paper to bright red felt and cut Resting Birds.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps liquid adhesives from soaking through the fabric.

Attach 3 birds, the scarf, hat and three Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones.

P1008586

Stamp the greeting - from the new Yuletide Moments Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock witgh Onyx Black VersaFine.  Quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder. Cut it with the smallest Stylish Rectangle die.  Attach the greeting and a bird inside the card.

Double-Collage a Halloween Scene by Jean Okimoto

Today's Halloween project somehow ended up with everything on one card.  Like two collages, domes, 3 colors of glitter, ghosts and pumpkins and an underwater castle - or an overgrown royal garden.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here on a cold, rainy weekend that's perfect for indoor cardmaking.

MemoryBoxFantasyCastleCollage, MemoryBoxKelpCollage, MemoryBoxNestedGlobes, MemoryBoxHauntedEntranceDomeLayer, MemoryBoxFrostedGlitterPad, MemoryBoxWoodgrainCardstock, MemoryBoxEarthNeutral6x6Pack, MemoryBoxSunnyOrange6x6Pack, MemoryBoxWoodgrainPaperPack, CollageCards, HalloweenDiecuts, DIYHalloweenCards, DiecutCards, GlitterDiecuts, MemoryBoxCo, MemoryBoxDiecuts, JeanOkimoto, ImpressCardsAndCrafts, StampsAndMemories

Cut the largest Nested Globe from black cardstock and the dark orange 6x6 in the Sunny Orange Collection.  Cut the black globe with Kelp Collage.  Remove the small kelp strand on the right side.   Cut the extra seaweed strands from black cardstock too.

Cut Fantasy Castle Collage from the light gray 6x6 in the Earth Neutral Collection.  Cut the moat (or wall) too.  Attach strips of ¼" lined doublestick tape behind the window cutouts.  It takes a few minutes now, but it'll be easier to attach the yellow diecuts for the lights later.  Promise!

The little ghosts and pumpkins are from the Haunted Entrance Dome Layer set.  Cut them from the white and orange 6x6 sheets in the Frosted Glitter Pad.  Cut an extra set of ghosts from black cardstock and attach them behind the white ghosts - offset to add dimension and a layer of black behind their mouths.

MemoryBoxFantasyCastleCollage, MemoryBoxKelpCollage, MemoryBoxNestedGlobes, MemoryBoxHauntedEntranceDomeLayer, MemoryBoxFrostedGlitterPad, MemoryBoxWoodgrainCardstock, MemoryBoxEarthNeutral6x6Pack, MemoryBoxSunnyOrange6x6Pack, MemoryBoxWoodgrainPaperPack, CollageCards, HalloweenDiecuts, DIYHalloweenCards, DiecutCards, GlitterDiecuts, MemoryBoxCo, MemoryBoxDiecuts, JeanOkimoto, ImpressCardsAndCrafts, StampsAndMemories

Attach the diecuts to a side-folded 5-⅜" square card of Kraft Woodgrain Cardstock.

Cut the windows from the yellow 6x6 in the Frosted Glitter Pad and just press them onto the tape in the cutouts.  It's a lot easier than gluing 20 tiny pieces.

Mix, match and layer the different designs from the Memory Box collage collection. Try different combinations of these dies and create unique cards for holidays, celebrations and everyday greetings.

Thanks for visiting - see you next week!

Dreamy Freesia on a Slim Diagonal Collage by Jean Okimoto

A bold Slim Diagonal Collage creates an ink-blended background for the detailed Dreamy Freesia.  Coordinate the background with matching colors from the 6x6 Collections, then add a simple greeting and custom-colored jewels.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a summer-into-fall slimline design.

A strip of ink-blended cardstock from the stash was used here.  It's sprayed with a light layer of Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz and air-dried while I worked on the rest of the card.

Cut white cardstock to 8-½" x 7-⅝".  Score it lengthwise at ¾" and 4-¼".  The ¾" section forms a tab to attach the back of the card. Diecut Slim Diagonal Collage about 1-¾" to the right of the ¾" scoreline.  Cut it lengthwise for best results.  

Cut another piece of cardstock to 3-½" x 8-½".  Attach it to the ¾" tab.

Attach a strip of the ink-blended cardstock behind the Slim Diagonal Collage.  Fold the cardstock to the inside on the 4-¼" scoreline and tape the edges.

Cut Hello Cursive Script Circle from the turquoise 6x6 sheet in the Fresh Aqua Collection.  Leave the diecut in the die and remove the offcuts with a piercing tool.  Cut a circle of white cardstock with the 2" Circle Basics die.  It's smaller than the script circle  so the background is visible.  Dot the greeting with tiny amounts of glue then press the greeting onto the white circle.  Push it out of the die with the piercing tool.

Cut Dreamy Freesia with the green 6x6 from the Lush Green Collection.  Cut the flower and 2 buds from the dark yellow 6x6 from the Sunny Orange Collection.  

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

Color Clear Jewels with an emerald green Sharpie or Copic Marker.  Color a medium-sized Fairy Drops Jewel with a yellow marker.  

Attach the diecuts to the card - use foamtape for the flower and buds.  The layers, foamtape and yellow jewel create a card requiring additional postage.

If you love the bold, crisp look of stripes too - join September's Stripes Challenge for a chance to win great Memory Box products.  View the Challenge details here.  Stripes aren't just straight vertical or horizontal designs - they can be wavy, diagonal, jumbled, arched or angled - we have great striped designs in our collage collection.

Refuse to Sink
by Angie Cimbalo

 
Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a really fun mini slimline encouragement card.
 
All of the many die cut pieces came from these dies, including the little circles I used for bubbles.  
 
Deepwater Collage Die
Coral and Kelp Ribbon Dies
Kelp Collage Dies
Bubble Coral Collage Die
School of Fish Die 
You Anchor Me Stamp Set
 
Here's a closer look at my card:
 

 


The kept and coral were all cut from watercolor card that had been colored with Distress Inks and Lindy's Magicals and so were the fish.
 
The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder on black card stock, then trimmed with scissors.  Some of the fish were popped up on foam tape and others were adhered with glue.
Here's a few more views:
 

 

 



I hope you enjoyed my card for today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cut the Garland floral print with the largest Rectangle Basics die.  Cut it again with the largest Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out die.  Leave both pieces in the die and attach ¼" wide double-stick tape, joining both pieces.  

Score and fold cream cardstock to begin a top-folded A-2 card.  Place one short edge of the largest Rectangle  Basics die just outside of the top fold so it won't cut that edge and cut the folded cardstock into an A-2 card. Attach the Double Stitch Rectangle pieces.

Cut a dark brown sheet from the Earth Neural 6x6 Collection with the 4.1 x 3" Nested Globes die.  Cut the globe with the Stone Keep Castle Collage die.

Cut a piece of the light brown Earth Neutral sheet with one end of the longest Wood Grain Planks die.  Cut the door.

Cut the bats, pumpkins and a ghost from the Haunted Entrance Dome Layer set from the glitter pad sheets too.  Cut the pumpkins again from scrap cardstock and layer them for dimension.  Attach a scrap of bright orange cardstock behind the ghost's mouth.  Use a piercing tool to enlarge the eyes.

Seas the Day Collage/Mixed Media Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone! Hope everyone is enjoying the summer.  I just got done moving and reorganizing my craft corner.  I had a lot of supplies I had hardly used and wanted to use them again.  A college type scene using mixed media techniques is an easy way to use a lot of different product with your dies.  It is a sea themed collage using the latest Summer Day Dream and Under the Sea release dies and gems.  

0E745A6F-E17D-4A73-9FE1-534BAF3D0A41_1_201_a

Technique:

I am not going to explain in exact detail on how I created the card.  With mixed media you are just playing with color and textures.  To start a mix media or collage it is easier to pick a color scheme and textures to use through out your design.  For the colors I did stick with traditional ocean colors.  I don't have a complete collection of any inks or paints and just mix and match the different products I have on hand.  The colors I did use  I will reference in distress inks, Speckled Egg, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch, and Cracked Pistachio.  I also used silver and bronze.  For texture I used embossing powders, texture pastes, and clear mica flakes.  Play with your products but keep to a color and texture theme and it will all come together in the end.  

9DE8615F-D09D-4C1E-90E7-B8354BF6B1CD_1_201_a

Background:

For the background I used an extra heavy white card stock, ~140lb, and cut it to 7"x31/2".  I started with creating a stencil by die cutting the Jumbled Line Collage from acetate.  I used matte textured paste to stencil in the center of the background.  Let it dry.  I created a stamp from the Ring Stack die by die cutting from fun foam.  This is an easy why to turn any die cut into a stamp that can be used a few times.  I stamped and blue embossed the image randomly around the back ground.  Next I used spray inks to create the background in all colors in my scheme.  2 of the sprays were shimmer sprays.  Let dry.  To darken the background  ink blended Blueprint Sketch and Mermaid Lagoon in the center of the card.  Let dry.  Then I added some Distress Crackle paint randomly and then sprinkled with Distress Clear Mica Flakes.

Images:

For the images I die cut from the same extra heavy white card stock.  The dies I used are Marina Sailboats, Whale Family, End of My Rope Set, Deep Blue Ocean, and You Anchor Me.  I die cut several of each die and ended up with more then I used.  To color I used various techniques and textures.  Some I embossed with silver.  Some where ink blended with Distress inks and clear heat embossed.  Some where ink blended with Distress inked and applied Distress Crackle paint and sprinkled with Distress Mica Flakes.  Others were sprayed with ink and covered in the Distress Crackle paint.    To add silver to the ink blended die cuts I used a Gelato stick and blended with my fingers.

Assembly:

For placement I kept the images you would find at the top of the water closer to the top of the background and the images under the water closer to the bottom.  Some are only half adhered so I can place items behind them and in front of others to create layers.  Next add some Clear Fairy Drops for bubbles.  I framed the background on a dark blue paper and adhere to the top section of the 5"x7" white card.  For the Sentiment I used the Seas the Day stamp from Deep Blue Ocean stamp and die set with deep blue dye ink on strip of white card stock.  Then backed with the a strip of the same deep blue paper.  Adhered on the bottom left hand side of the card.

Light Up Castle Card
by Michelle Bala

34

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing a castle light up card. I used the newest Collage Dies: 

  • Fantasy Castle Collage Die
  • Imperial Castle Collage Die
  • Stone Keep Castle Collage Die


34

I die cut the castles using cardstock from 6x6 Paper Packs in shades Vibrant Violet, Lush Green, and Fresh Aqua.

I trimmed off the outer frames and just kept the Fantasy Castle and Imperial Castle. The Stone Keep Castle was left intact.

Layer them as shown and secure them with removable tape. Turn the layers over and place a piece of vellum paper over the back panel. 

Place the light mechanism ( I used an EZ- Light) on an area that can hide the battery pack. Place the lights in a few windows. Secure with clear tape.

Be sure to hide the wires and secure the wires down with tape.  

 

29

Turn the panels over and make sure the lights are placed correctly and works properly when pressed. If placement is good, than adhere all layers together.
29

Then flip the panels over to the back side again and place thick double sided foam tape on the back panel ( vellum side). 

Do not place foam tape over battery pack or lights.  You can place it over the wires. Adhere the panel to the card base (4 2/4 x 5 1/2 )
29

Next I die cut the frame using Double Stitch Rectangle Cut Out Die. Adhere the frame to the card base.  I printed out the words 'Press Here' than used the smallest die from the Shining Star Set Dies and cut it out. I used the stamp set, Majestic Achievements, stamped, colored and die cut the sentiments.

I adhered the rest of the embellishments.
