Thanks You and Sympathy Floral Cards
by Angie Cimbalo

 

Vellum thanks main

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today!   I have a card design for you today, that I made for two different purposes. One is a "thank you" card and the other is a "sympathy" card and I used the same technique to create each of these.

The main image was created by dry embossing the large flower from the Cheerful Floral 3D embossing folder (EF1025) on a piece of white card stock and a piece of vellum. Once embossed, I added Distress Inks in Fired Brick and Seedless Preserves on both the debossed side of images - ink pad direct to paper, then used the coordinating die that comes in the Cheerful Floral Clear stamp and die set (CL5278 and CLD5278) I cut both of them out. I did not use the stamp, just the large floral die from the set.

Next I layered the inked vellum piece on top of the inked white panel and adhered them together using a tape runner putting tape only on the darker areas of ink so you can see it. Here's a closer look at the image:

Vellum thanks close

I added that piece to a card base that was 5.5" tall and 3.25" wide. Next I took a piece of A2 card stock (4.25" by 5.5") and added 1/2 inch strips of patterned paper from the Magnolia Grove PP1022 paper pad. Then I added back the the top folding card to the A2 panel right in the middle between the strips of paper. So now when you open the card the patterned paper stays on the inside of the card and only the white part opens up. The sentiment is a new white Circle Tab from the Thank You packed of gold foiled tab sentiment. Lastly I added jewels to the flower centers.

Here's one last look at my card:

Vellum thanks 1

The next card was made exactly the same except I used the stamp and die set CL5270 called Elegant Succulents and heat embossed it in white on black card stock. That is the only difference in the cards.

And here's one final view:

I hope you like my cards for today, I had so much fun creating with the new release!

From Bud to Blossom by Jean Okimoto

P1030655

Balance the bold dimensions of the beautiful Anemone Bloom with a slimline card and a simple greeting from the January Anemone Collection.  Soft blues can be frosty winter pastels - or in anticipation of spring - just 5 weeks away!  Hi, Jean here with a simple  thank you card from our latest release.

P1030685

Cut Anemone Bloom from a light blue 6x6 in the Ocean Blue Collection.  Color the stamens with Morning Mist VersaFine Clair - we're using just the two larger pieces here.  Color the sepal with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair.  Set them aside to dry.

Cut white cardstock with the die from the Vintage Tray 3D Embossing Folder and Die Set. We're using just 2 of the diecuts here - save the others for another project.  The tray's diecuts are perfectly-sized for several of the new rub ons.  

Cut the bud from the new White Anemone Rub Ons - leave a generous border around the design.  Carefully remove the paper liner.  Gently tap the design onto the small rectangle diecut. Place it between two layers of printer paper and run it through your diecut machine to burnish the bud onto the cardstock. (The rub ons set (2 sheets) includes a wood craft stick to burnish the designs if a diecut machine isn't available.)  Carefully remove the frosty plastic layer.

Back to the anemone...assemble the blossom.  Attach it to the larger white rectangle diecut - use foam tape between the petals for shadowy dimension.

Glue two pieces of the same Ocean Blue 6x6 together for dimension and cut the Thank You Debut Script background.  Cut the delicate top layer from white cardstock.  Assemble the greeting.

P1030667

Attach the diecuts to a blue slimline card (3-½" x 8-½") - use foam tape for the greeting.  Add blue Christmas Fairy Dewdrops.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting - Happy Valentine's Day to everyone celebrating tomorrow!

3D Embossed Anemone Collage by Jean Okimoto

P1030239

Inky highlights call attention to the details of the new Anemone Drift 3D Embossing Folder and Die Set.  Remember way back when pressure embossing meant a hand-embossing with a lightbox and stylus?   Thank goodness for embossing folders that make it so easy to create cards now! Hi, Jean here with another design from our January Anemone Collection.

Trim a light blue/lavender 6x6 from the Twilight Purple Collection to about 5" x 6" and spritz both sides with a light mist of water.  Emboss it with the Anemone Drift 3D Embossing Folder.  

P1030273

Highlight the design with inks - shaded lilac and mowed lawn Distress Oxides were used here.  Dry the inks, then cut the tray usng the  die from the Vintage Tray set.  

Cut the tray again from a light blue 6x6 from the Ocean Blue pack. We're using just the frame here - I inked the woodgrain diecuts for another project.  Attach it to a  pale lavender A2 card.  Add the embossed/inked anemone pieces.

Cut two backgrounds from Hello Debut Script set and glue them together for dimension. Cut the  detailed top layer from a dark blue Stormy Blue 6x6.  Assemble the greeting.

P1030257

Attach everything to a light lavender A2 card.  Add blue Bright Jewels.

Thanks for visiting!

Hi everyone, today's card features more new products from the new 2024 January Anemone release.  I decided to use the Anemone Bloom as my focal point for my card.

The anemone was die cut from white cardstock and I used Distress Inks to add color to the images.  

Flower: Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks

Leaves: Peeled Paint Distress Ink

Flower Centers: Black Soot Distress Ink

I glued the anemone together and put it aside while I worked on the card background.

IMG_7858

I dry embossed cream cardstock using the Anemone Drift 3D embossing folder.  This was glued to a black cardstock mat and then adhered to a cream woodgrain card base.

Using a circle layer die, I die cut a circle from the Anemone Plaid paper pad and glued it to the card.  

Next, I used foam tape to adhere the Anemone Bloom to the card and spattered it with gold ink.

The word "Greetings" was die cut from gold metallic cardstock and the shadow from black cardstock.  I glued the word to the black shadow die cut and used foam tape to adhere it to the card.

IMG_7857

To add some interest to the card, I finished by adding some black embellishments to it.

Thanks foe stopping by today and have a great week!

Hugs Anemone Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_7852

Good morning everyone!  I have another card featuring the new Anemone release.

I started by dry embossing navy blue cardstock using the new 3D Anemone Drift embossing folder.  Next, I lightly rubbed a white pigment ink pad across the embossed cardstock to highlight the flowers.  I cut the embossed panel at an angle and adhered it to a A2 white card base.

I cut a thin strip of gold metallic cardstock and glued it next to the embossed layer.

The anemones and leaves were all cut from white cardstock and inked with Distress Ink.

Flowers: Squeezed Lemon and Wild Honey Distress Inks were used

Leaves: Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress Inks were used

Flower Centers: Black Soot Distress Ink

IMG_7854

I glued the flowers together and adhered them to the card along with the leaves.

Next, I spattered gold ink on the top half of the card.

IMG_7853 (1)

To finish the card, I die cut the word "hugs" from metallic gold cardstock and glued it to a white cardstock shadow die cut.  

That's it for today!  Thanks for stopping by!

Anemone Cutout Friendship Card by Jean Okimoto

Reach out to someone you miss with a floral window card from our January Anemone Collection.  Hi, Jean here with a fresh pink friendship card from our latest release. The "missing" blossom is attached inside, visible thru the window - and there's space for a short note below it.

Cut a 5" x 6" piece of white cardstock. It's easier to trim the extra cardstock later than it is to align everything perfectly.   Spritz both sides with a light mist of water. Leave at least ¾" of space on the left edge and emboss the cardstock with the new Anemone Bunches 3D Embossing Folder.  Cut the anemone with the larger die from the set.  Use an ink applicator or blending brush to color it with kitsch flamingo and bundled sage Distress Oxides.  Use a cotton swab to daub the center with Pearlescent Yellow Brilliance. 

Score the left edge ½" from the embossed design to create a tab.  Trim the cardstock to 5-½" x 4-¼" plus the ½" tab.  Attach the tab behind a 5-½" x 4-¼" piece of white cardstock for an A-2 card.

Close the card and attach the anenome diecut (excluding the delicate stem) through the opening.  Open the card and attach the stem.

Cut 2 of the Miss You Debut Script backgrounds from white cardstock.  Color 1 background with kitsch flamingo.  Cut the detailed top layer from white cardstock and color it with kitsch flamingo too.  Assemble the greeting - place the inked background slightly offset to the left for dimension and contrast against the white background.

Add pale green Bright Jewels.  Cut an A2-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.  

It sounds very complicated, but it's not!  Hope you'll try this design in your favorite colors.  Thanks for visiting our blog...have a great weekend!

Hello Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_7816

Hello everyone!  I have another card for you featuring new products from the 2024 January release.

To make this card, I die cut all the images from white cardstock and used Distress Oxide Inks to add color to them.

Flowers: Spun Sugar and Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Inks

Flower centers: Black Soot Distress Ink

Leaves: Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress Oxide Inks

I followed the image on the packing for the die cuts and glued the flowers together.

IMG_7818

The word "hello" was die cut from black cardstock and the shadow from white cardstock.  I glued the word "hello" on top of the white shadow die cut.

Next, I dry embossed a strip of gray cardstock using the Ringadings 3D embossing folder.  I randomly swiped a white pigment ink pad across the embossed paper, sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set it.   

I used a blending brush and applied the same Distress Oxide inks used for the flowers to a white cardstock panel.  I spattered the background with plain water and dried it.

I glued the gray embossed strip of paper to the inked panel and spattered it with black ink.

Next, I glued the flowers and leaves to the card front and used foam tape to adhere the hello die cut to the card.

IMG_7817

To finish the card, I glued the card front to a pink card base.

That's my card for today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

New Anemone Release Thank You
by Angie Cimbalo

Main

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a card created using the brand new "Anemone Collection."  This is a beautiful collection of anemone dies, embossing folders with coordinating dies and  rub-ons, new paper pads and new style word dies.  

For my card I used the new "Anemone Drift 3D Embossing folder (EF1041) on white card stock.  I die cut the new "Anemone Bud Duo" (94765) from white card stock and colored them with Distress Inks.  I used the Stitched Layered Circles (30036) to cut circle from "Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad" (FP1002) blue and from a piece of patterned paper from the "Anemone Grove Paper Pad" (PP1026).  I also cut the "Thank You Debut Script" (94775) shadow die from the mirror card stock.  The thinner word die was cut from white card stock and adhered with glue to the shadow die.

2

I glued the circles together then added them to the embossed panel and next I added the colored anemones to the circles.  I actually cut the leaves die into 3 pieces so I could put the leaves where I wanted them.  Next, I added the sentiment and then added that panel to the heavy weight card base.  Finally I used my corner rounder to round 3 of the four corners of the card.  

All three pictures of my card were taken from different angles so you could see the mirror cardstock reflection in different places.

Here's one last look at my finished card:

I hope you enjoyed my card for today.  Be sure to check out the whole release on the Memory Box website HERE.  Thanks for stopping by!
