Create an underwater scene for the Whale Family with two offcuts from dies in the Under the Sea Collection.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with an easy way to build a wonky, abstract background from offcuts.  The Word Balloon and greeting are from the new Poppystamps Whittle Wonders Collection.  I buy Poppystamps designs to make card kits for Impress here in Seattle  and Stamps and Memories in Hawaii.  Memory Box and Poppystamps products are a great combination!

Cut the large frame from  the End of My Rose Set from dark purple sheet in the 6x6 Twilight Purple Collection. Save the rope-textured frame for another project - we'll use the big curve-y offcut here.

Blend turquoise, green, blue and purple inks on heavy white cardstock. Spritz it lightly with water and heat-set the inks.  Cut it with Deepwater Collage.  Save the outer collage diecut for another project - we're using the curve-y interior offcut again.  

Score and fold a side-folded lavender A2 card.  Use a corner rounder to trim the top left and bottom right corners to match the shape of the purple offcut - two rounded corners and two pointy corners.

Cut Whale Family from the blue-gray 6x6 sheet in the Stormy Collection.  Use scrap paper to mask the top portions of the whales and ink the textured bottom sections and the tail edges with Memento Luxe Wedding Dress.  Heat-set the ink.

Cut the Word Balloon from a scrap of the card's cardstock.  Stamp the greeting with Teal Zeal Memento.

Assemble the card - use foamtape for the whales.  Add jewel stickers from the multi-colored Bright Jewels and clear Fairy Drops.  If you're mailing the card, protect the card front with a layer of scrap cardstock.  Special handling and additional postage may be required for this card.

Blooming Sweet Pea and Special Hugs by Jean Okimoto

P1005267

Happy Mother's Day to everyone celebrating today!

The blossoms, leaves and tendrils of the new Blooming Sweet Pea 3D Embossing Folder create a delicate background for a thoughtful greeting.  The glossy heat-embossed design adds extra dimension and contrast.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a simple design for any occasion.

P1005290

Cut a sheet from the Vibrant Violet Collection with the 4-¼" x 5-½" Rectangle Basics die.  Use a hard rubber brayer and a clean, well-inked VersaMark pad to transfer the ink the top section of the Blooming Sweet Pea 3D Embossing Folder.  Pressure-emboss inked areas with detail clear powder.

Here's a technique we use in classes - preheat the embossing powder by applying the heat-tool to the reverse side of the the cardtock first.  Let the heat-tool cool off for a minute or two, then heat-emboss the design from thge right side.  

Stamp the greeting - from the All the Happiness Clear Stamp and die set - on a pale lavender sheet from the Vibrant Violet Collection with Paradise VersaFine Clair.  Cut it with the Double Stitch Happy Heart die.

Cut a darker lavender sheet with the 2" x 3-½" Rectangle Basics die. Cut a partial heart  from the rectangle - tape the heart to the rectangle on the reverse side.

Attach the pieces to a top-folded white A-2 card.  Add clear Fairy Drops.

P1005274

The new 3D Embossing Folders give you the option of simply embossing - or adding ink.  Hope you take the time to try the different techniques 

Thanks for visiting - see you on Thursday!

I Think of You - Ocean Themed Card - Video
by Angie Cimbalo

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with an ocean-themed card featuring brand new dies from the 2021 Under the Sea release.  This release is full of amazing new ocean themed dies, shape dies, new 3D embossing folders, woodgrain paper, and a new line of self-adhesive gems/droplets.  For my card I used several of the ocean themed dies along with self-adhesive clear droplets - which come in a handy 3 size pack!

Here's a quick video showing how I made my card:


Here's a close up view:

 
I used a lot of ink blending and smooshing to make this card and I love how the clear droplets take on the color under them, so they will match any project you use them on!
 
 
The sentiment is from the Birch Press Designs set "Crystal Lingo," heat embossed on black card stock.
 
 
Here's one last look:
 
 
I hope you like my card!  I had so much fun creating it!

Hugs Bunny by Jean Okimoto

Celebrate friendship with a felt Bunny Face and big hugs spelled out in bold Wooden Alpha letters.  Madras Plaid Coral and Green prints are great throughout the year - and are a perfect match for the new Berry Red and Lush Green 6x6 Collections.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a spring-ish design that would work throughout the year.

MemoryBoxBunnyFace, MemoryBoxMadrasPlaidCoralAndGreen6x6, BunnyDiecuts, PlaidPapers, JeanOkimoto

Here's a tip for selecting and diecutting the perfect section of printed papers for your design.  Diecut scrap paper in a contrasting color - then use the offcut as a template to find the right area to cut.  Attach the template to the printed paper, place the die into the cutout and diecut exactly what you need.  No guessing required!

Attach adhesive label paper (or a sticker sheet) to gray felt and diecut the main Bunny Face section.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps glues from soaking through.  Attach a scrap of black cardstock behind the eyes.  

Cut the outer ears from one of the coral Madras Plaid sheets.  Cut the layered face section from the gray dotted Dashing Stripes and Dots 6x6.  Punch a ¼" dot of pink cardstock from the Berry Red Collection and attach it behind the notched area on the face section.  (A fidgety little detail...but it makes a big difference.)

Cut the Wooden Alpha H, G and S from the pink cardstock too.  I think Bunny Face looks (vaguely) like the letter U - hope you agree!

Cut white cardstock with the 7-¼ x 2-¼"  Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangle die.  Trim (or mask) the bottom of the "sending love" clear stamp from Poppystamps Diamond Sentiments Clear Stamp and Die set. Stamp it with Starlite Black Brilliance.  Stamp "to a wonderful friend" too.

Cut two detached hearts - from the Heart Streamer Globe set - from the pink 6x6 Delicate Pastels Glitter sheet.

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

Have fun with variations of this basic design.  Use your favorite colors, little prints and felt scraps.  Thanks for visiting!

Pastel Crystal Border and Gerber Stems by Jean Okimoto

Lemon-yellow Gerber blossoms bloom along a bright pastel Crystal Border in mix of angles+curves, brights+white, glitter+foil...all on a short slimline card!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a design ready to welcome Spring.

MemoryBoxCrystalBorder, MemoryBoxGerberStems, MemoryBoxFrostedGlitterPad, MemoryBoxLushGreenCollection, MemoryBoxPolishedFoilPad, PoppystampsDiamondSentimentsClearStampAndDieSet, FlowerDiecuts, PaperPiecing, GlitteredDiecuts, InkBlending, JeanOkimoto, DiecutBorders, VersaFineClair, ImpressCardsAndCrafts, StampsAndMemoriesHawaii

Cut a 6-¼" x 7-½" sheet of white cardstock.   Score it (horizontally) at ¾" and 4-¼".  Cut Crystal Border about ¾" to the right of the ¾" scoreline.  We're using just the cutout here. Cut a 3-½" x 6-¼" piece of smooth white cardstock.  Attach it to the ¾" tab to create the back of the card.

Cut Crystal Border again from the gold sheet in the 6x6 Polished Foil pad - we're using the delicate cutout.

Cut Crystal Border again from smooth white cardstock covered with blended inks in shades of pink, peach, teal, yellow and green - remove the delicate outline but keep the diecut pieces in the die for easy re-assembly later.  My inked paper stash somehow included at sheet of blended inks with sections that matched the pattern of the Crystal Border - it was a lucky day.

Attach a wide strip of lined doublestick tape behind the Crystal Border cutout - the adhesive will be visible in the cutout on the card front.  Save the paper tape liner.

Press the delicate gold Crystal Border onto the exposed adhesive in the cutout. Press it with the paper tape liner. 

Attach the little pieces to the adhesive in each section - then press everything with the saved paper tape liner. 

Cut just the tops of the Gerber Stems from the yellow 6x6 sheet in the Frosted Glitter Pad.  Cut the whole Gerber stems and small leafy stem from a green sheet in the Lush Green Collection.  Attach the yellow flower tops to the green flowers, slightly offset.  Attach the flowers to the card, then add the small leafy stem.

Stamp the greeting - from the new Poppystamps Diamond Sentiments Clear Stamp and Die Set - on white cardstock with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink and punch or cut a 1-¼" circle.  Cut another 1-¼" circle from a scrap of the inked paper and attach it - slightly offset - behind the greeting circle to add dimension.

Add ¼" dots punched from the chartreuse sheet in the Frosted Glitter Pad.

Build a Rainbow with Nested Globes by Jean Okimoto

Take your cards beyond the box with bright rainbows, sunbursts and 6x6 papers from the Spring Collection.  Hi, Jean Okimoto sharing a card that takes advantage of the versatility of Memory Box dies and some of the 108 shades from our new 6x6 cardstock collections.  The glittered yellow strip is cut from the new Graceful Garden Glitter Pad.

Diecut the rainbow with the 5 largest Nested Globes dies and colors from the new 6x6's - Fresh Aqua, Vibrant Violet, Lush Green, Graceful Garden Glitter Pad and Twilight Purple.  The Sunny Orange Collection (below Lush Green) created the yellow and orange sunburst.  

P1003955

As Trina suggests - cut a portion of each globe, then use the smaller die to cut each strip.  Build the rainbow with the narrow strips instead of layering the 5 colors.  Here's a photo of leftover offcuts after the rainbow strips were cut.  I cut each piece taller than necessary and trimmed everything after I taped them together on the reverse side.  You can use these offcuts to build smaller rainbows.

Cut yellow cardstock from the Sunny Orange Collection with the 3" die from the Circle Basics set.  Cut it with Stitched Burst.  Rotate the die so it cuts halfway between the first set of holes.  Cut a 3" orange circle and layer it behind the yellow circle to emphasize the dots.

Vigorously shake the container of Imagine Crafts Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz and use the tube end of the sprayer to add gold specks along the center of a white slimline (3-⅝" x 8-½") card.  Dry the ink.

Stamp the greeting - from the Joyful Moments Clear Stamp Set - with Charming Pink VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink - these inks were compatible when dry and didn't smear or blur when used together. Please test your inks first if you're using other products.    Attach the diecuts - the  sunburst circle extends about ⅛" above the fold.

Look for Rainbows Slimline Card
by Angie Cimbalo

7 best one

Hello, it's Angie here today with some of the new 2021 Spring dies, stamps and papers from Memory Box!  This latest release not only has some amazing new large stamp sets and beautiful dies, it also has the newest product - 6" X 6" card stock pads in the most amazing solid coordinating colors!  My card showcases several of the gorgeous colors available in these new pads of card st0ck.

I used several new dies, new paper and a new stamp set, along with a few previously released dies too. 

 Here's a video showing how I made this card:

1)  The rainbows were made with the new "Arch Collage" die and five of the new 6" x 6" solid color paper pads.  I first used the arch die on seven colors of card stock.  Next I cut the arches from a slimline white panel, adding a white backing panel to it, so I could paper pieced the strips into the negative space on both rainbows.

I also used several of the newly released slimline dies.  I love to make slimline cards and these dies make it so easy to do.

2)  The white panels were cut with the new "Wrapped Slim Stitched" rectangle dies and the black panel was cut with one of the new "Slim Basic Rectangle Layers" die.  This die set has so many sizes to create layers of any size on your slimline creations.

3)  The sentiment is heat embossed in white on black card stock and it is from the "Joyful Moments" clear stamp set.  I die cut it with the smallest die in the "Wrapped Stitched Rectangle" die set.

4)  The hearts were cut from the same pink paper with the "Sprinkle Heart Collage" die and placed on the card front.

5)  Lastly I added the card to the card base (which was 3.5" x 8.5") and added lots of shimmer pen to all the hearts and all the arched colored pieces.  It's hard to see the shine but in person, it just glistens!

Here's one more look:

I hope you have a chance to stop by the Memory Box website to see all the wonderful new products.  This release is one of my favorites ever!

Dies and papers from the Spring Collection make it easy to create fresh cards for every occasion.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another flowers+plaid idea.  The colors Dave chose for the Spring Plaid, Madras Plaid Coral+Green and Madras Plaid Blue+Violet offer so many design options for spring and summer projects.

MemoryBoxMadrasPlaidCoralAndGreen, MemoryBoxSlimBasicRectangleLayers, JeanOkimoto, PlaidCards, ImpressCardsAndCrafts

To remove the green plaid sheet carefully from the pack...place the open pack on a hard surface and press firmly along the center line to loosen the sheet,  then carefully pull it out.  The 6-⅜" x 1-⅜" die from the new Slim Basic Rectangle Layers fits perfectly if you include the extra length at the top.

Cut the green sheet from the 6x6 Lush Green Collection with the narrowest Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles die.  

Cut two sets of Layered Fresh Flowers from the two shades of the darkest yellow sheets in the 6x6 Sunny Orange Collection. Cut two of the  starburst-style centers from the gold 6x6 Polished Foil pack sheet.  

Cut a 1" x 4-½" strip of the yellow Frosted Glitter Pad sheet.  

Stamp the greeting - from the new Joyful Moments Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink and cut it with the 1-¾" Circle Basics die.  Cut a green circle for an offset layer behind the greeting.

Attach everything to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½").  Punch ¼" circles of the green Frosted Glitter Pad sheet.
