Hello

Hello everyone!  I was so excited when I saw the foil plates and dies in the 2022 May release!

To make the card, I used the Sunburst Hot Foil Plate to add gold foil to white cardstock using a foiling machine.  Next, I used a blender brush to apply Distress Oxide inks to my foiled cardstock.  Because the foil is like a letterpress design that is debossed into the paper, the ink doesn't cover the foil.

I trimmed the cardstock and adhered it to a black cardstock mat, which I then glued to a white card base.

Using black cardstock, I die cut the Graceful Poppy Stems and the Sweet Poppy Stem and glued those to the card front. 

Next, I die cut the shadow from the Hello Daily Script die from white cardstock, and the word hello from black cardstock.  I glued the black hello word die to the shadow and adhered it to the card.

On a strip of black cardstock I white heat embossed the sentiment and adhered it to the card.

To finish the card, I added some yellow sequins for some dimension.  

And that's it for today! Have a great day!

Happy Thoughts
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_1016

Hello everyone!  Today's card features a great way to use those leftover scraps of paper we all have.

I started by die cutting the Jumbled Line Collage die from a piece of white cardstock.  Next, I trimmed it down to a mini slimline card size and cut strips of paper to weave in between the lines.

I mounted this to a kraft cardstock panel and then glued it to a white card base.

The flower was die cut 3 times from white cardstock, and glued together to give it more dimension.  I used foam tape to adhere it in place on the card.

Next, I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment on another strip of scrap paper.  Using foam tape I adhered it to the card front.

That's it for today!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Masculine Best Day Ever
by Angie Cimbalo

2

Hello and welcome! I'm up on the Memory Box blog today with this masculine birthday card I made for a family member. I used the "Put in in Gear" 3D embossing folder with a sentiment from the "You Anchor Me."

Here's another look at my card:

2

Here's how I made my card:

1) Dry emboss a piece of Memory Box watercolor paper, then apply Distress Oxide Vintage Photo ink directly to the paper with the ink pad.

2) I decided to make a mini slimline card so I cut only a portion of the embossed panel with scissors to use on my card front.

3) I glued the portion of the embossed/inked panel that I wanted onto a piece of Kraft Woodgrain card stock also from Memory Box measuring 3" by 6".

4) I matted that panel on a brown piece of card stock that was just slightly larger, and then another mat of the Kraft Woodgrain paper that was 3.5" by 6.5".

5) Then I added that to my card base which was 7" by 6.5", scored at 3.25 on the 6.5" side.

6) I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair Pinecone ink and heat embossed in clear.

7) Lastly I added Autumn Jewels and Crystals to the card front.

Here's one last look at my card:

I hope you like my masculine birthday card that I made today. I usually struggle with masculine cards but this gear 3D embossing folder is just perfect for it! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Easter
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_1483

Hello everyone!  Today I have a quick and easy Easter card for you!

I began by ink blending a white cardstock panel with Distress Oxide Inks.  The colors I used were Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry and Hickory Smoke.  I spattered the background with plain water and white ink.

Next, I die cut the Bunny Egg Collage in the middle of a white cardstock panel, and glued the ink blended background behind the opening in the die cut.  I adhered this to a gray cardstock mat and used foam tape to adhere it to a white card base.

IMG_1485

I white heat embossed the words "Happy Easter" on a strip of gray cardstock and used foam tape to adhere it to my card.

IMG_1484

To finish my card, I adhered some fairy gemstones and that's it!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello Friend
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_1398

Hello everyone!  Today I have a simple card with a spring theme.

I started by creating a ink blended background on white cardstock as my base. 

IMG_1395

Allow background to dry completely before going on to stamping.  Once dry, I inked my stamp with Versa Mark Ink and white heat embossed the image.

Next, I inked a sentiment stamp with Versa Mark Ink and randomly stamped the background to give it some dimension.  I used Wilted Violet embossing glaze to heat emboss the random words.  I spattered the background with white ink.

I die cut the words "Hello Friend" from white cardstock and the shadow background from glossy black cardstock.  I glued the white words to the shadow background and used foam tape to adhere it to the card.  Next, I white heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of black cardstock and glued it to my card.

IMG_1399

I glued the background to a black cardstock mat and then adhered it to a white card card base.

To finish the card I added some clear fairy dots.  That's it for today's card!

Have a great and creative week!

Friends Become Family
by Angie Cimbalo

Close use

Hello and welcome! It's Angie here today with this light and pretty card for a dear friend.

Here's a close up look of my card:

Close use

Here are the steps to make this card:

1) Emboss A2 panel of watercolor card stock with the "Blooming Sweet Pea" 3D embossing folder

2) Use one of the smaller "Stitched Rectangle Layers" dies and cut out of the center of the embossed panel

3) Add "Rose Gold Metallic Gilding Paste" from Cosmic Shimmer to the raised areas of the small embossed white rectangle

4) Cut a little larger rectangle with same die set from "White Woodgrain Card Stock", then swiped it also with the same rose gold paste.

5) Stamp the sentiment from "Friends and Family" stamp set in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and heat emboss in clear on a piece of vellum.

6) Add the vellum to some double sided adhesive, then trim the edges and add to the small rectangle (You can see the rose gold enhanced embossing through and behind the vellum."

7) Add the vellum + embossed rectangle to the woodgrain rectangle and then to the main large A2 white embossed card front panel.

8) Cut the "Glade Butterfly" die from black card stock and added to top left side of card

9) Add pink "Pastel Fairy Jewels" to the butterfly middle and in the corners of vellum

Here's another look at my card: Close use

I really like how you can see the light rose gold raised areas of the dry embossing peeking through the vellum heat embossed sentiment. Even though sentiment on this card is the focal point, it's nice to see the embossed patterned on the white background continue through to behind the vellum.

Here's one last look:

Close use

The sentiments in this stamp set "Family and Friends" are so sweet and there are a lot of them in the set.
I hope you enjoyed my card for today, I really had fun creating it.

Please be sure to stop by the Memory Box often to see the wonderful inspiration from out design team.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Birthday
by Angie Cimbalo

2

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a elegant birthday card using products from the new Spring 2022 release. Here's another look:

2

As you can see it mostly white, vellum and with a little bit of gold. The gold and white leaves are both cut from the new mirror card stock release pack called "Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad." Below you can see the 3 sets of leaves, white, gold and vellum all layered together on both sides.

2

The background was made by cutting two of the "Hex Half Pinpoint" die cuts from watercolor card stock. Once they were cut, I temporary added them to a piece of card stock so I could dry emboss them with the "Blooming Sweet Pea" 3D embossing folder. Once, embossed I removed the card stock and added both "Hex Half" pieces to an A2 size piece of vellum Next cut 2 more "Hex Half's"to for the back of the card front to give it a clean look.

I cut a piece of card stock 5.5" by 4.75" and scored the 4.75" side by 1/2 inch then folded it. This was going to be the back of the card, so I hid the folded 1/2" behind the right side "Hex Half Pinpoint" on the back of the front of the card. I glued this folded piece down (which is the card back) to the vellum before I added the right side. This way I had an A2 size card with the center hexagon made of see through vellum.

The "Happy Birthday Posh Script" die was cut from the same gold and white mirror papers and layered. To finish the card I added gold Christmas Fairy Jewels to the vellum in the center.

Super close don't need

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:

Thinking of You
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_0952 (1)

Good morning everyone!  Today I have a fun technique for you.  I watched a YouTube video by Natasha Foote showing this floating shape technique.  

The first thing I did was to die cut the flowers and leaves from white cardstock and inked them with Distress Oxide Ink.  

IMG_0950

Once they were colored, I placed them face down onto a sheet of Gina K Masking Magic Paper.  I tried to place them as close together as possible.  Next, I placed my heart die on top of the images and die cut it.  The images stick to the masking magic which is a low tack paper.  I adhered foam tape to the images and then glued it to my card front.

IMG_0951 (1)

I placed it onto my card and lightly pressed it down to make sure everything was glued down.  Next, I gently peeled off the masking magic.

IMG_0953 (1)

I spattered the card front with gold ink and adhered it to a black cardstock mat.  Next, I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of black cardstock and glued it to the front of the heart.

I adhered the card front to a white card base, and that's it!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

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!
