Joy Poinsettia Holiday Card
by Angie Cimbalo



Hello and welcome!  It's Angie here today with this fun "Joy" Christmas card featuring the new poinsettia die from the 2022 Christmas release.  Here's a closer look at the card:



For my card I used the new "Poinsettia Watercolor Floral" die with Memory Box "Holiday Festive Glitter" paper pad for the pink, green, and yellow parts and "Rainbow Reflections Mirror" paper pad for the reds.  The JOY was cut with the same mirror paper using the "Wooden Alpha Craft Dies" set to give it lots of texture.

 
The tan card stock was embossed with the "Geometric Crystals 3D" embossing folder and then each square was filled with "Clear Fairy Jewels."  Here's one last look: 



I hope you like my card for today.  Be sure to stop by the Memory Box blog often for more inspiration from the design team!  Thanks for stopping by!

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.

Aloha
by Trina Pham

BD9C5107-B85D-4822-8234-5DD2F5119882
  
Aloha everyone.  Today I’m sharing a simple summer card with a tropical vibe made with the Tropical Leaves 3D embossing folder (EF) and matching dies from the June Island Vacation release.

Bristol paper was used for all the white die cuts.  After die cutting the leaves, spritz them with water then embossed them using the EF.  Had planned on playing with alcohol inks (AI) on yup paper to create the background, but couldn’t find my yupo paper, so ended up doing the AI on  acetate technique instead (you may have noticed the reflection from the acetate 😉).  Drops of Pool and Mermaid AIs were applied to an A2 size piece of acetate, then rubbing alcohol and a hand blower were used to move the inks around.

The die cut Vintage Varsity letters were ombré colored next using turquoise dye ink and a blender brush before heat embossing them with clear glitter embossing powder.  Die cut the letters from black cardstock as well to offset for a drop shadow.  The periwinkle blooms were then colored with Scattered Straw and Wild Honey distress inks using a finger blender brush.  Assembled the card onto a white card base, then added clear shimmer to the flowers to finish.

Wishing you all a wonderful week.  Thank you for joining me today.

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 .

Adventure Awaits
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_2064

Hello everyone!  Today I have another summer themed card for you.  

I started by stamping the tiny fish on a white cardstock panel.  Next, I stamped the sentiment with black ink under the blue fish.

I used foam tape to adhere the panel to a white card base.

IMG_2066

I used white cardstock and dry embossed the fish using the new Ocean Fish 3D embossing folder and coordinating die to cut the fish. I colored the fish using the coordinating stencil and Distress Inks.  The ink colors I used were Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed.  I used a black marker for the fish eye and a white pen for around the eye then used foam tape to glue it to the card.

To finish the card, I glued some Clear Fairy Drops to look like bubbles.

That's it for today!  Have a great week!

Seagrass Underwater Scene by Jean Okimoto

P1018254

Create a seagrass background for some Ocean Fish with the Waves 3D Embossing Folder.  Just rotate the embossed cardstock for a swirly, grassy underwater scene, then highlight the details with heat embossing.  Freestyle Hello from Poppystamps is perfect for a quick greeting. It looks like the small fish is the spokesperson leading the group today.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a summer slimline design for you.

Cut a 5-½" x 2-¾" strip of a teal 6x6 in the Fresh Aqua Collection.  Spritz both sides lightly with water, then emboss it with the Waves 3D Embossing Folder.  Place it on a hard, flat surface and brayer the raised areas with VersaMark - use a clean, well-inked inkpad.  Heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.

Here's a tip - I usually ink and/or heat-emboss both sides of the 3D-embossed cardstock just to see which side I prefer.  You'll be surprised at the difference!

P1018320

Diecut the fish - from the Ocean Fish 3D Embossing Folder and Cutting Dies Set - on heavy white cardstock.  Lightly spritz the fish, then place them (one at a time) in the folder and pressure-emboss them.  Stencil them with the coordinating Ocean Fish Stencils and Distress Oxides.  Colors used here are wild honey, mowed lawn, dried marigold, iced spruce, twisted citron and salvaged patina.  Dot the eyes with a marker.

Cut the Poppystamps Freestyle Hello from a mustard 6x6 in the Sunny Orange Collection and heavy white cardstock.  

Another tip...cut the delicate top layer of the greeting - leave the diecut in the die.  Remove the little pieces in the e, l's and o.  Place a piece of lined doublestick tape behind the diecut (still in the die) and run it through the machine again to create a self-adhesive hello.  Keep it in the die - remove the tape liner and little oval offcuts.  Press it onto the mustard background and use a piercing tool to help release it from the die.  

P1018294

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½").  Add the amber jewels from the Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut a slimline-sized layer of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting our blog - have fun picking your favorite colors for the Ocean Fish!

Swimming with the Fishes
by Anne Thompson

This month's blog challenge is "Waving" Hello--water-themed cards.  For today's very dimensional shades of aqua card I've got lots of fishes swimming among the waves.

IMG_3785-ink

I started with three shades of aqua papers from the FRESH AQUA COLLECTION cardstock pad SP1004.

IMG_3786-ink

I die cut all of the fishes first from a turquoise paper.  Then using another piece of the turquoise paper in a lighter shade and the  OCEAN FISH 3-D EMBOSSING FOLDER EF1031 I made embossed fish and cut them out using the corresponding dies.  For this card I decided to use only the embossed fish and set the other ones aside for another project.
IMG_3786-ink

Next I chose n even lighter shade of aqua paper and the CURLING WAVES 3-D EMBOSSING FOLED EF1032 to emboss the waves and then cut them out with the corresponding dies.
IMG_3786-ink

I covered the front of a top-fold white notecard with a darker aqua paper.  I added the waves, glueing some on flat and popping up some with dimensional foam dots.  Then I tucked in the fish, some glued on flat and some added with dimensional foam dots.  I had one extra fish which I added to the inside of the notecard.

IMG_3785-ink

Think this card will go with an ocean-themed gift for a birthday in August and I'll add an appropriate sentiment and note inside.  I love all of the dimension on this card!

Have you created a card for this month's challenge?  We love to see what you make! For more inspiration, be sure to check out the 2022 June Island Vacation supplies and idea book here.

Happy Crafting!

Rainbow of Ocean Fish
by Trina Pham

E96FAC91-7E23-42E4-8E2A-7A2A9EBBD7D3

Hello there.  I have a colorful rainbow ocean scene card to share today using the Ocean Fish embossing folder (EF), matching dies and stencils.  All these products together made the process pretty easy.  

Started by die cutting all the fish from Bristol paper.  Spritz them with water then embossed them in the EF.  Let them dry briefly before inking them with distress inks in rainbow colors using finger brushes and the coordinated stencils.

2A0D9FBB-EA58-4EC0-98D4-5CE4529AEDF7

The background is Bristol paper embossed with the Underwater 3D embossing folder.  Heat embossed the sentiment from Deep Blue Ocean stamp set with white embossing powder on black glossy paper.  Assembled the card onto a white card base then for fun, added some googlie eyes to finish.

If you know me, I love coloring die cuts with my Copic markers, so I admit I have underestimated how useful stencils are.  They make coloring so much easier and quicker!  Well that does it for me.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Island Vacation Seascape by Jean Okimoto

P1018156

Tropical getaways are a popular theme this summer - and the Island Vacation Collection is the perfect mix of nautical and tropical designs.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a summer slimline ready for any occasion.

Cut the Grand Spiral Shell background from the smoother side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  Spray a light mist of water into the air and pull the diecut through the moisture to prep it for 3D embossing.  Repeat with the other side of the paper.  Pressure-emboss it with the Ocean Fish 3D Embossing Folder - with the smoother side of the paper facing the more debossed (sunken) side of the folder.   Leave the diecut in the die - it'll be used as a stencil.

Stencil it with Distress Oxides - abandoned coral, twisted citron and salvaged patina.  Dry the inks.  The combination of pressure embossing and stenciling thru the metal die adds extra dimension.  Pressure-embossing also makes it easier to layer the pieces - the detailed overlay settles right into the embossed design.

Cut the delicate Grand Spiral Shell from a white 6x6 in the Delicate Pastels Glitter Pad.

Cut the straight rope and the heavily-textured loopy rope from the white Delicate Pastels Glitter Pad sheet too.

Cut the fish - from the new Ocean Fish 3D Embossing Folder & Cutting Dies - from the turquoise 6x6 in the Rainbow Reflections Glitter Pad. Place the fish in the embossing folder and emboss it using the plate(s) required for your machine.  

P1018177

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½").  Add 3 of the biggest Clear Fairy Drops.  Cut a slimline-sized rectangle of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing

Fresh tropical pastels, glitter and mirror cardstock - and the Island Vacation Collection - make it easy to create happy, refreshing designs for summer sharing.  Thanks for visiting our blog!  Have a great weekend - see you next week!

Best Day Ever Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_1909

Hello everyone!  Today's card feature's new products from the June Island Vacation release.

To make the card, I started by using the Curling Waves Stencil and Blue Distress inks to create the background. I spattered the background with white ink and glued it to a kraft cardstock mat.  Then I used foam tape to adhere it to a white card base.

IMG_1905 (1)

Next, I used the Ocean Fish 3D embossing folder to dry emboss the fish on white cardstock, and used the coordinating dies to cut out the fish.

I used various Distress inks and a blender brush to color the fish.  I used a black pen to add the dot to the fish eyes.  

The coral was die cut from white cardstock and colored with Distress inks.

I used foam tape and adhered the fish to the card.  Next I glued the coral die cuts in place and ripped a strip of kraft cardstock, inked it with Vintage Photo Distress ink and adhered it along the bottom of the card to look like a layer of sand.

IMG_1908

To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment in the upper left hand corner of the card and added some clear fairy drops.

Thanks for stopping by today!
