Vibrant Violet Blossoms by Jean Okimoto

P1014582 3

Is spring your favorite cardmaking season too?   I love how layered blossoms and foliage create a slimline card for any occasion.  The new Fuddled Leaf Branches Contour Layers from Birch Press Design balances the bold flowers and Bright Jewel gemstones and Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad blossoms add sparkly violet accents.

Hi everyone, Jean Okimoto here with a very layered design from our spring releases.  The Memory Box 6x6 color collections make it easy to select, combine and layer diecuts in coordinating colors.  9 assortments - totaling 108 colors - create a lot of flowers and leafy backgrounds.

Cut white cardstock with the 7-¼" x 2-¼" Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles die.

Cut Ruffled Blooms from different shades of the Vibrant Violet 6x6 Collection.  Cut the smallest flower from the violet Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad 6x6 too.  Cut glittered Star Flowers too.

Cut the background of the Birch Press Design Fuddled Leaf Branches Contour Layers from a medium-green 6x6 in the Fresh Green 6x6.  Cut the detailed top layers from a lighter green sheet.  Leave the top layers in the die and attach ScorTape or Couture Creations doublestick tape behind the diecut pieces.  Run it through the machine again to cut self-adhesive layering pieces.

Attach the top layers to the background leaves - they're lightly scored to indicate where the top layers should be placed.  Here's a link to view the newest products from Birch Press Design.

Cut the 2 leafy branches from the Layered Star Flowers set from the darker green 6x6.

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½").  Add the violet Bright Jewels gemstones.

Slimline card dimensions are great for collage-y floral and garden greetings.  They provide a lot of white space to balance the brightness of the flowers.  Slimline cards are also a nice surprise for a recipient who thought it was just another piece of mail.

Hope you'll have a chance to make a few spring cards this week.  Diecut a bunch of flowers, leaves and branches - then build paper bouquets for cards, layouts or mixed media.  You can never have too many flowers!

Thanks for visiting our blog...see you again on Friday!

Poppy Love by Jean Okimoto

P1014552

Mirrored, glossy and embossed designs create a simple lovenote for any occasion - way beyond February 14th.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another slimline card from our latest release - hope you like slimlines as much as I do!   Neutral colors let the beautiful bright red Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad 6x6 make a bold statement on a simple design.

Pressure-emboss natural cardstock with the Geometric Crystals 3D Embossing Folder using the plate(s) required for your machine.  Trim it to about 2" x 5-½".

Cut Enchanting Poppy Stem's floral pieces from the bright red Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad sheet.  Cut them again from a medium-dark red 6x6 from the Berry Red Collection.  Save the extra diecuts for another project.  

Cut the stems and leaves from the new Black Glossy 8-½" x 11" Paper Pack cardstock.  Cut the leaves (including 2 of the smaller leaf) again from matte black cardstock.   Assemble flower tops and leaves.  

Cut the Love You Posh Script background from light Kraft cardstock.  Cut the detailed words from the Black Glossy sheet.

P1014571

Attach everything to a natural slimline card (3-½" x 8-½") - the flower tops first, the stems next,  and then the leaves.  Add gold Autumn Fairy Crystals.

Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting the blog - hope you enjoy creating floral cards with our Design Team.  I've reached my personal goal of using everything from our latest release - and will be using them many more times - here on the blog and for my card kits.   It's a great collection of versatile, mix-and-match-able papers and dies in classic designs for any occasion throughout the year

Special thanks too - to everyone who ordered my Cards by Color - Blush  kit from Impress and Roxanne!  

See you next week...

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

I hope you like for my card today! Be sure to check out the whole Memory Box Spring 2022 Release HERE. I have linked my supplies below if you are interested.

Be sure to stop by the Memory Box blog each day for more inspiration from the design team!

Stem Silhouettes
by Trina Pham

C460BFAA-F154-4E41-ACCA-F4370208CD3A

 

Hello and happy Saturday everyone.  I’m playing with more products from the 2022 spring release.  Unlike last time when I colored the die-cuts, I used them as silhouettes here.  This, of course, made the process quick and easy.

 

Started by die cutting Fresh Cut Stems and Tall Frilly Leaf Stems from black glossy paper… giving them instant shine!  Then on an A2 size Bristol panel, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Prize Ribbon and Chipped Sapphire distress inks (DI) were blended on with blender brushes for an ombre look.  Spritz with water then dabbed with a paper towel for texture.  Set aside to dry.

 

E6F239CC-BBD5-4C84-BF45-AE540DF3ECAB


Next, the Miss You Posh Script was die cut 3x from Bristol paper and stacked for dimension.   Arranged and assembled the card onto a white card base to finish. 

 

E3567303-92C1-4B65-ADEC-EE64ACBC922D


This turned out darker than I wanted and since it was so easy to make, I created another card with more spring-like colors and white silhouettes.

 

63E2561E-3B94-47D4-A3C6-1825E071ABD1

 

The distress inks used here are Tumbled Glass, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry and Scattered Straw.  I made sure to keep a light hand when blending to keep the colours soft.

 Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Pinks and greens - and a favorite felt Bunny Face - create a friendship card with great new dies from our Spring 2022 Collection.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a layered, monochromatic design - and a lot of textured details.

The Memory Box 6x6 Collections make it easy to find the perfect coordinating colors for any project.  Three shades of pink from the Berry Red Collection create the Layered Periwinkles here.

Cut Exquisite Leaf Frame from a 6x6 in the Lush Green Collection.  Attach it to a green A2 card.  (Or attach it to another Lush Green 6x6 cut with the largest Rectangle Basics die.  Attach them to a white or natural notecard to create a custom-colored notecard.)

Cut the background of the Miss You Posh Script from the offcut of the frame.  Cut the top layer from a pink 6x6.  Assemble the greeting.

Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to tan and pink wool blend felt and cut Bunny Face and the ears.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps adhesives from saturating it.  Attach a scrap of black cardstock behind the eyes.

Cut the additional face section from Madras Plaid Coral and Green 6x6.  We're making a facemask here, even if pandemic rules are changing daily.   Cut 2 pieces of peach crochet thread or floss. Tape them - crossed - behind the plaid piece.  Attach the mask to the face and tape the thread/floss ends behind the face.

Attach the diecuts to the card.  Add pink Pastel Jewels.  

A simple change of greetings could make this a get well card - or a hello card for someone you haven't seen in a while.  Add a few pastel egg or jellybean diecuts - and it's an Easter card!

Thanks for visiting - have a great weekend.  See you next week!

Bouquet:

Die cut the Tall Frilly Leaf Stems from a dark green paper from the Lush Green Pad to get 3 stems.  Die cut the Fresh Cut Stems dies, the ones without the flowers attached, from a lighter shade of green from the Lush Green paper pad.  (I love these paper pads with the different shade for die cutting.  It makes layering so much easier). Die due the flowers from the lightest aqua from the Fresh Aqua Pad.  Shade the bottom of the flowers with Distress Salvage Patina Ink.  Add a little yellow/bronw to the center of the flower with a water color marker, dabbing lightly. Glue the flowers on the stems. Arrange the Tall Frilly Stems in the background gluing them towards the bottom where the overlap.  Then adhere the Fresh Cut Stems on top.  Cut bakers twine and tie a simple not around the area that was glues. Trim off excess.

Background:

Cut a sheet of Open Studio Watercolor Paper to A2 size.  in the center wet with water and do a quick water color wash with Distress Salvage Patina ink spray. I spay a little on the table and pick up with a soaked brush.  Jut added a light color to the center of the paper.  Then dry off the brush and plater the background with the Salvage Patina.  Blot off with a paper towel to mute the splatters into the background.  Heat dry.  Die cut the Hex Half Pinpoint from Open Studio Watercolor Paper, twice.  Adhere to the background.

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:

Feb 20th 3

I hope you like my card for today! Be sure to check out all the new release items in the Memory Box 2022 Spring Release. There are lots of gorgeous products including dies, new mirror papers, and stamps! You can find it all right HERE!
