Merry Christmas with Frilling Snowflake Ornament
by Angie Cimbalo


Close

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a fun holiday card featuring the new "Frilling Snowflake Ornament" die.  Here's a closer look at my card:

 

Close

The sentiment is from a previous holiday release and it's called "Special Merry Christmas" and I cut it in both silver and black glossy card stocks and stacked them up.  

The ornament backs are cut from the glossy black card stock and the ornament itself is cut from silver mirror card stock from the Vintage Mirror Pad.  I added the silver outline ornament to the black background die cut and then placed all 3 of them on the card front, with 2 of them hanging off the edges.  After the glue dried, I cut the extra of the sides of the card.  

Lastly I added lots of jewels and crystals, all from Memory Box, to jazz up my ornaments.  I really like all the colorful gems with the silver and black!  

Here's one last look:

Working with amazing dies like these makes it so easy and quick to create beautiful one of a kind card designs.  Be sure to check out the whole release for all the products that just came out!  You will be amazed at all the possibilities!

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

Glitter and Polished Foil papers highlight the new Celeste Snowflake Trio.  Scatter them over the new Celeste Plate background for a sweet and sparkly pastel winter scene.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a quick holiday card.  The intricate designs and details are all easy to diecut - all you need to do is attach them!

Prep the beautiful Celeste Plate by briskly rubbing it with scrunched waxed paper to help release the tiny pieces.  Cut it from white cardstock and attach it to a top-folded white A2 card.

Cut the Celeste Snowflake Trio from 6x6's in the Graceful Garden and Twinkling Jewel Glitter pads and the Polished Foil pad. It's easier to cut all 3 sizes from these 3 great artpapers - and you'll have 6 extras for future projects.

 

Stamp the greeting - from the new Sweet Christmas Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock with Pearlescent Jade Brilliance.  Peacock feathers Distress Oxide would match too.  Dry the ink, then trim the cardstock with the 2-¼" x 3-½" Rectangle Basics die.

Attach the snowflakes and greeting - and turquoise Christmas Fairy Jewels.  That's it!

Have fun designing with the Celeste Plate.  Don't save it for Christmas designs - it looks great in orange on a black background for Halloween too!

Thanks for stopping by - see you again on Friday...

Flying Witch with Creepy Cabin
by Angie Cimbalo

AngiesignatureNEW
Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a Halloween card featuring some of the newly released fall dies.  The new dies I used are:
 
1)  Flying Witch 94624
2)  Creepy Cabin 94634
3)  Boo to You Posh Script 94587
 
Here's a close up look at my card:
 
AngiesignatureNEW
To make my card I cut the witch and the cabin from both white card and glossy black card stock. This is very thick and nice black glossy card stock released earlier by Memory Box and it's such high quality!  
 
In the picture below you can see both cabin cuts.  The one of the left was cut right out of white card and left alone.  The black one was trimmed out of the opening so I could layer it on top of the white one with liquid glue.  For the background behind the cabin inside the opening, I ink blended a piece of white card with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink on the top half, and Dried Marigold Distress Oxide on the bottom half.
 
Next I took the smaller die from the Circle Basics 30087 set from white card that I had ink blended with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink.  I glued that to the background for my night moon in the sky.
 
Below you can see me working on the cabins and the ink blending.
 
AngiesignatureNEW
 
After gluing the black cabin over the white one, I cut the whole panel with a Stitched Rectangle Layers die 30009, and then used the same die and then next size smaller to create a glossy black stitched frame for my image.  I mounted that whole panel on foam tape in the bottom right corner.
 
AngiesignatureNEW
 
Next I glued the white and black witches together slightly offset and then added them to the card.  I had to use foam tape on the left side since the top of the broom, her arm and leg are on the raised rectangle panel.  This made it all even.  I did the same thing with the sentiment, layered, raised up the part not on the rectangle with foam tape to make if all level on the card.
 
Lastly I added both Autumn Fairy Crystals and Autumn Fairy Jewels to the card.  Memory Box has lots and lots of gems, jewels and crystals to choose from including clear ones.  The are fall colors, winter colors, Christmas colors and clear ones that look like water droplets and the best part is the come in different sizes.  Here's on last look at my card:

I had so much fun making this card.  I like to make Halloween cards for my grandkids, even though some are getting older, it's always fun to receive a card in the mail no matter how old you are!
 
Be sure to check out the newest Memory Box release goodies HERE.  There are lots of spooky and fun dies to help you create amazing cards!  Thanks so much for stopping by and see you next time.

Create a Starry Collage background for the new Flying Witch, diecut from black glossy cardstock and glittered 6x6's. Add a stamped, embossed "Boo" and turquoise jewels to complete the Halloween scene.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with 2 more great new designs from the Memory Box Fall '22 Collection.

Cut Starry Collage from a black A-6 card (4-½" x 6-¼").  Line the card with a 6" x 4-¼" rectangle of lavender cardstock from the Twilight Purple Collection.

Blend soft, overlapping layers of salvaged patina, cracked pistachio and wilted violet Distress Oxides on smooth white cardstock.  Cut it with the 2-½"-wide Nested Globes die.

Cut the white Polished Foil 6x6 with the 1-¼" Circle Basics die.

Cut and assemble Flying Witch from Black Glossy Paper (it's cardstock).  Cut the cape again from the dark purple Twinkling Jewel 6x6.  Attach it - slightly offset.

Stamp the greeting - from the Halloween Pumpkin Clear Stamp and Die Set - on the lavender cardstock with Onyx Black VersaFine.  Quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.  Cut it with the 1" Circle Basics die.  Cut another circle and attach it for dimension.

Assemble the card - carefully avoid adding adhesives where the back of the globe will show through the star cutouts.  Attach the witch with foam tape on the shoulder/face/hat.

Add turquoise jewels from the Open Studio Bright Jewels set

Collage dies are a great way to add dimension and depth to cards.  Back the cutouts with contrasting cardstock - or leave them open for an understated look on simple cards.

Distressed, Glossy and Ghosty by Jean Okimoto

P1018637

Add distressed spookyness to the trees from the new Ghosts in the Forest set.  The friendly ghosts and a glossy black Rickety House create a fun Halloween scene.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a fall design that's easy - and fun!

Pressure emboss the smoother side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper with the Ghosts in the Forest trees.  Place the diecut on a smooth, hard surface and brayer Onyx Black VersaFine over the raised sections - including some of the surrounding areas.  Heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.  Once it's cooled, diecut it.  This techique lets you keep a little bit of the original cardstock color along the edges of each section.

Trim it with the 3-½" wide Nested Globes die.  Cut a dark orange 6x6 from the Sunny Orange Collection with the same die.  Attach the orange diecut behind the trees.

Cut the ghosts from heavy white cardstock.  Attach black cardstock scraps behind them for the facial features.

Cut Rickety House from Glossy Black Paper.  Attach scraps of yellow cardstock - from the Sunny Orange Collection - behind the windows.

P1018643

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded black A2 card - use foamdots for the ghosts.  Add dark amber Fairy Crystals.

Hope you're liking the fall and Halloween ideas from our Fall 2022 Collection.  They're perfect for mixing and matching and combining with seasonal designs from last year's Halloween release.

Ghosts in the Garden by Jean Okimoto

 

P1018601
It's a great day for a new release...meet our Fall 2022 Collection of fun, whimsical seasonal designs for Halloween!  Great contemporary die designs to mix, match and layer on cards, layouts, calendars, planners and treat wrappers for the little tricksters.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with the first of many Design Team ideas for Halloween.  View the collection here.

Add the versatile new Fancy Globe Gate to your collection of globe dies - it looks great cut from our Glossy Black Cardstock and the interactive detailed panels swing open to welcome ghosts, goblins and black cats.

Prep the Fancy Gate Globe by rubbing it briskly with a piece of scrunched wax paper to help remove the delicate offcuts.  Cut the gate from Memory Box Black Glossy Paper (it's actually cardstock).  Finger-press the doors open at the sides.  Tie a gold cord at the top and curl the ends with the side of a bonefolder or the plastic burnishing tool.

Cut the ghosts - from the new Ghosts in the Forest set - from heavy white cardstock.  Attach scraps of black cardstock behind their faces.

P1018607

Cut the Boo Posh Script background from black cardstock.  Pressure-emboss it with the detailed coordinating top layer. Cut the top layer from the Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad's dark orange sheet. Assemble the greeting.

Cut the floral print from the Garland 6x6 pack with the largest Rectangle Bascis die.  Attach it to a side-folded yellow card.  Attach the diecuts - use foamdots for the ghosts.  Add orange Open Studio Autumn Fairy Jewels.

P1018618

We don't chose our dies because of their offcuts - but the very cool offcut of the Fancy Gate Globe is just waiting to be featured on a card of its own.  That will be another fall design.

Thanks for visiting the blog - hope we'll inspire you to create a stash of fun Halloween and fall designs to surprise those who weren't expecting a card until December.

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.

Fresh Floral Chain by Jean Okimoto

P1018395 3

Sunny yellows, soft greens and crisp white create a simple summer design. Add Fairy Jewels and and it's ready to go!  Hi,

Jean Okimoto here with a floral slimline - and some August Yellow Card Challenge inspiration.   

P1018434

Blend twisted citron, fossilized amber and squeezed lemonade Distress Oxides on a strip of Open Studio Watercolor paper.  Dry the inks, then lightly splatter it with Imagine's Gold Shimmer Spritz.  Set it aside to air-dry.

Cut Floral Chain from heavy white cardstock.  Stencil the centers with squeezed lemonade and fossilized amber - I punched a ⅜" circle from a scrap of vellum.  DIY vellum stencils are great - you can see what you're inking and have clean, crisp edges.

Cut Fresh Cut Stems from a light green 6x6 in the Lush Green Collection.  

Diecut the inked watercolor paper with the 1-½" wide Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles die.  Trim the short ends with one of the larger dies from the set to create a custom-sized slim rectangle for your card.

P1018383 2

Attach the Fresh Cut Stems (we're not using the other short stem) to the slim rectangle - trim the bottom of the big stem for the left side.  Attach the Floral Chain.  Add light green Christmas Fairy Jewels.

Congrats to the Cathy R, winner of the July Challenge!  Hope today's design inspires you to join our August Yellow Cards Challenge...good luck!

Glossy Glittered Greetings by Jean Okimoto

P1018333

Here's a quick and easy way to add gloss+glitter - and attach - delicate diecuts.  We'll even create extra greetings for another card because we're using just the Twiggy Thank You offcuts here.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with simple summer slimline for you.

Cut Twiggy Thank You on white cardstock.  Save the tall triangle in the A and the oval in the O.  Trim the greeting with the second-largest Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles die.

Cut a 5-½ " x 3" piece of smooth white cardstock.  Ink it with loose, overlapping layers of distress oxides.  Picked raspberry and abandoned coral were used here.  Dry the inks.  Cover the inked cardstock with Scor-tape (save the tape liner), then trim it  slightly larger than the greeting. Attach it behind the greeting.  Attach the saved pieces inside the A and O -  then brush Imagine Iridescent Glitter onto the exposed adhesive in the cutouts.  Tap the excess off the greeting, then heat-set it.

It'll be a bright, glossy, glittered greeting - and it's securely and completely attached!

Cut the small Ava Butterfly from the pink Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad sheet.  Cut several of the Intricate Mini Butterflies from the pink and coral sheets in the Vintage Pastel Mirror pad.  

P1018347

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-⅝ x 8-½") - use foamdots for the big pink butterfly.  

Add the copper-colored Autumn Fairy Jewels.

There it is...glittered, glossy, ready to be shared!
