Enchanting Poppy Stems add spring color to a slimline friendship card.  Layer them over an ink-blended backdrop and the Cascadia Background Strip.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another beautiful, versatile floral set from our February 2022 Collection.

Cut white cardtock with the 7-¼" x 2-¼" Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles die.  Cut the rectangle with Cascadia Background Strip.  Blend blue, green, purple and teal inks on smooth white cardtock - use a piece large enough for the background strip and the greeting background.  

Dry the inks, then spritz it with a light mist of Imagine's Sparkle Shimmer Spritz.  Dry it,  then trim it to fit behind the Cascadia border.  Skip the measuring and/or guessing - just trim it with the 6-½" x 1-½" Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangle die.  It's one size smaller...and guaranteed to fit behind the border! 

Cut the Enchanting Poppy Stems blossoms from two shades of the Ocean Blue Collection 6x6's.  Cut pieces of the middle-sized layers from the darker 6x6.  Assemble the flowers.

Cut the leaves and stems from a Lush Green Collection 6x6.  Brush a light layer of Pearlescent Thyme Brilliance onto the narrow accent pieces.  Assemble the leaves.

Cut the extra ink-blended cardstock with the Miss You Posh Script background.  Cut the greeting from white cardstock.  The tiny dot over the "i" disappeared somewhere between my diecutting area and my desk. I used a screwpunch to punch a tiny hole in the background.  The background will be layered over white cardstock and will match the rest of the greeting.

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½").  Add the pale aqua Christmas Fairy Crystals.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Hope you'll join our March Challenge - the theme is Miss You/Thinking of You.  Flowers always add a special touch to cards for any occasion - and would especially appreciated right now.  Here are the details.  

Thanks for visiting the blog...see you again this weekend!

You Deserve Happiness
by Angie Cimbalo

Main

Hello and welcome! It's Angie here today with a mini slimline card made with new stamps and dies from the 2022 Memory Box Spring Release!

Here's another look at my card:

1

To make my card I started with a piece of watercolor card stock and smooshed and splattered lots of Distress Inks in pinks, yellow and oranges with lots of water too. Once it dried, I cut the "Memory Box Riverbank Large Layered Blooms" die from it and layered the flower together adhering it with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the new "Memory Box Friends and Family" Open Studio stamp set in black ink then covered the sentiment with post it notes and splattered black Karin marker watercolor ink on it. Once that dried I added the flower to the top of the card.

The center of the flower was cut from the newly released black glossy card stock and really helps tie the splatters and black ink from the sentiment all together. Lastly I added some Fairy Crystals to the card in two sizes. Here's one last look:

I hope you like my card for today! Please stop by the Memory Box blog each day to see more inspiration from the brand new 2022 Memory Box Spring Release!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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.

Textured Garden Greetings by Jean Okimoto

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!

Rainbow Magic Slider
by Trina Pham

7E198A3A-C5F4-467A-BF15-5C888518B8A7

 

Hello everyone.  No Valentine’s / heart card today.  Instead I’m sharing a fun and colorful magic slider card featuring the Arched Collage die.  Confused with the “colorful” description from the picture above? 🤔   Then see it in action in the video below! 😉

 

 

 

I’ve only made this type of card using stamps and wanted to try it with dies.  Started by trimming a white top folding card base and a piece of mixed media paper to 4.25”x5”.  The width was 0.5” shorter than a regular A2 size to accommodate for the slider pull tab handle.  Next, die cut the Arched Collage from the mixed media piece, which leaves a negative cut.  This will be the front.

 

0B741F6F-2AAE-46E3-90A8-4BC5D104BBB6

 

The cutout arches were coloured in rainbow order with Copic markers.  Adhered the negative cut front piece on top of the card base with temporary adhesive and used it as a guide to adhere the colored arches directly onto the card base like so.

 

507EA060-A34A-463A-84CC-69BC2D1DCAE0

 

For the slider, it was cut to 3.5”x5.5” from white woodgrain paper.  Dies from Rectangle Basics were then used to partial die cut a t-shape on one end and a notch for the slider pull tab handle on the other end.  No measuring… just eyeballed it.

 

F9D124CC-CACC-445C-B26D-98AA62F08D5D

 

Acetate was then adhered to the back of the front piece.  Still working on the back, strips of thick white cardstock (could use foam / mounting tape here instead) were adhered to three sides to create a channel for the slider to move back and forth.  To help guide the slider and provide a stopper, a stabilizer was created by wrapping a strip of 0.5” copy paper onto itself around the slider piece. 

 

B87FDFA1-3AEE-47FB-BA65-3D61F303E195

 

Note: Very important to add glue only on the outside of the stabilizer and the perimeter strips when assembling the card… otherwise, it will interfere with the sliding action.

 

93AF43F5-D43D-4407-925B-713C112DC9E5

 

A circle was die cut from black cardstock and folded in half to create the slider pull tab handle.  The Hello Friend posh script was die cut from Bristol paper 3x and stacked for dimension before mounting onto its black shadow.   

 

A8C1213E-70D1-4BF0-903A-E29A2FC6581B

 

For a polished look, a frame was added to the front.  The clouds were die cut from white woodgrain paper as well and their edges inked with a finger brush and Tumbled Glass distress ink.  Assembled the card then hand printed “pull” with a white gel pen on the slider pull tab handle to finish.

 

EAB58E54-9CFA-4165-87A7-B59CC49D24A3

Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful week, especially if you are celebrating Valentine’s day.

Friends, Flowers and Watercolors by Jean Okimoto

Love flowers?  Here's a just-released floral design to add to your collection of Memory Box garden dies.  Hi friends, Jean Okimoto here introducing the new Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral set. Our 6x6 color collections make it quick and easy to find the perfect coordinating colors for the bold, detailed blossom and leaves.  Four shades each of the Lush Greens and Vibrant Violets are used here.

Cut the Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral pieces from dark pink, light pink and violet 6x6's in the Vibrant Violet Collection.  Cut the two-piece center from light and dark green 6x6's in the Lush Green Collection - layer them, then daub them with Open Studio Sour Apple Sparkle Glitter Glue.

Cut the leaves from light and dark green 6x6's.

I've used a scrap of watercolored paper from my stash - it's cut with the 6-⅜" x 1-⅜" Slim Basic Rectangles Die.  Add specks of Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz, air-dry it for a few minutes, then heat-set it.

Cut the Hello Friend Posh Script background from white cardstock.  Pressure-emboss it with the coordinating detailed die using the rubber embossing mat and plate(s) required for your machine.  Embossing it adds dimension and makes it very easy to attach the delicate overlay.  Cut the overlay from a violet 6x6 and add tiny dots of glue.  Press the delicate diecut down into the debossed greeting.

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½").  Add sparkly lavender Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones.  Cut a slimline-sized sheet of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Oops...I glanced at Dave's beautiful Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral on the envelope after the card was done - and realized I made several "leafy" errors.  The top leaf is upside-down, both leaves are in the wrong space and dark/light green shades are reversed.  Couldn't get much wrong-er than that - it proves how versatile this great die set is!

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

With Love and a Rose Bouquet Heart by Jean Okimoto

P1011386

Hello and Happy '22!  Jean Okimoto here with a quick card to start the year.  Diecut Rose Bouquet Wide Washi Tape and layer it over a leaf-green Jumbled Lines Collage.  Add a quick stamped and diecut greeting and sparkly Fairy Crystals - that's it!  The design is simple, versatile and matches several of the greetings in the Big and Little Reverse Words stamp set.

Cut white cardstock with the 3.1 x 8.1" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  Cut the rectangle with Jumbled Line Collage.  Cut a strip of soft green 6x6 from the Lush Green Collection and attach it behind the collage.  Attach  the rectangle to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½").

Attach Rose Bouquet Wide Washi Tape to pale pink cardstock and cut it with the second-largest Double Stitch Happy Heart die.  Attach it to the card with doublestick tape at the bottom and foamtape at the top for dimension.

Stamp the greeting - from the Big and Little Reverse Words Clear Stamp and Die Set - on white cardstock with Rocket Red Gold Brilliance.  Dry the ink, then cut it with the die that's included in the set.  Attach it with foamtape.

P1011397

Add the pale green Christmas Fairy Crystals.  Cut a slimline-sized sheet of cardstock to protect the card front if you're mailing the card.

The Rose Bouquet and Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tapes are perfect for Valentine cards - or any card you need in a hurry!  They have handcolored-look with a soft frosty shimmer.  Attach the tapes to backgrounds of different colors - or crisp white.  The adhesive is very secure - no flyaway edges or corners here!

Celebrate STAMPtember with the exclusive True Friend Clear Stamp Set!  This great limited edition collaboration set from Memory Box and Simon Says Stamp joins the annual fall event of stamping, creativity and friendship.

Hi, Jean Okimoto here after my senior moments of confusion about post scheduling.  Hope you like this slimline mix of stamps, embossing and colorful layering.

Stamp the flowers on white vellum with VersaMark and emboss it with detail white powder.  Color it - on the reverse side - with cotton swabs and Distress Oxides.  Use  pointy cosmetic applicator cotton swabs for the narrow areas.  Add more ink - from the right side - to fill in any blank or light spots.  Colors used here are ripe persimmon, worn lipstick, wild honey and iced spruce.  Air-dry the inks, then cut it with the largest Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die.

Unfold the card and pressure-emboss it with the largest Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die using the rubber embossing mat and plate(s) required for your machine.  A small portion at the top of the heart will be embossed onto the back of the card.  I don't think the card's recipient will mind - do you?
