The Memory Box Christmas 2023 Collection has something for everyone.  Select from winter florals, birds, great typestyle greetings, 6x6's, snowflakes, evergreens and a friendly snowman.  Cute, sweet, elegant, traditional and contemporary!  Hi, Jean here with a winter pastels design today.

Cut a bright pink Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad 6x6 with the 2-¼" x 3-½" A2 Rectangle Frames die.  Spritz it with a light mist of water. Place it in the bottom right corner of the new Vintage Tray 3D Embossing Folder and lightly tape it in place along the left and right edges.  Emboss it with the plate(s) required for your machine.

Trim the 2 poinsettias from the new Perfect Poinsettias Rub On Transfers - include a generous margin around the designs.  Carefully remove the designs from the paper backing and attach them to smooth white cardstock.  Cut them with the dies included in the Perfect Poinsettias 3D Embossing Folder and Cutting Dies set.  The diecutting pressure will burnish them smoothly onto the cardstock.

Or - use the wood craft stick included in the set to carefully burnish the design onto the cardstock.

Remove the plastic layer.  Place the diecut designs in the embossing folder and emboss them.

Glue two layers of white cardstock together and diecut the new Brilliant Joy background.  Pressure-emboss it with the detailed overlay die using the rubber embossing mat and plate(s) required for your machine.  Cut the overlay from a green Graceful Garden Glitter Pad 6x6.  Attach the glittered greeting to the background.  You'll have a bonus glittered greeting for another project too!

Cut white cardstock with the 2-½" x 3-¾" A2 Rectangle Frames die for a background layer.  The A2 Rectangle Frames set is perfectly sized for both A2 and A6 cards...no measuring or guessing required!

Cut the tiny snowflake pattern from the new Poinsettia Garland 6x6 with the 2-½" x 3-¾" A2 Rectangle Frames die.  Cut turquoise cardstock with the 2-¾" x 4" rectangle frames die.

Glue 2 layers of white cardstock together and cut the solid background of the Merry Christmas Charmed Script.  Pressure-emboss it with the detailed overlay die .  Cut the detailed top layer from the turquoise Rainbow Reflections 6x6.  Attach the greetings - pressure embossing creates a debossed outline to receive the top layer. 

Two ways to dot the starburst "i" in Christmas - just attach the tiny little dot offcut, or use a screwpunch to create a tiny hole and attach a scrap of the turquoise Rainbow Reflections behind the hole.

Glittery Pumpkins on the Vine
by Anne Thompson

I've got more pumpkins--glittery ones on a glittery vine!

0-3 (1)-ink (1)

to make this card

  • start with a plain white notecard and add a piece of green plaid paper 5 1/4 X 4 to the front; this plaid that was in my scrap box is from MAGNOLIA PLAID 6X6 PP1021
  •  die cut the MAGNOLIA LEAF BRANCH 94721 in green glitter paper from GLITZY GLITTER PAD GP1007

0 (1)-ink

  • die cut two pumpkins from orange glitter paper and their stems and leaves from green glitter paper, both from GLITZY GLITTER PAD GP1007 using the AUTUMN PUMPKIN 94690 die

0-1 (1)-ink

  • add the leafy branch to the front of the note card

0-2 (1)-ink

  • use glue dots to adhere the stems to the pumpkins
  • put dimensional foam in two different thicknesses on the center back of the pumpkins 
  • at this point I decided to orient the card with the fold at the top in order to place the pumpkins in the bottom right corner
  • loop the stems over the branch and adhere the pumpkins to the front of the card, one slightly higher and on top of the other
  • add one leaf to each pumpkin and place the other pumpkin leaves on the vine

0-5 (1)-ink

There's plenty of room to add an appropriate sentiment in the upper left once I decide who will get this card and for what occasion.  I've been doing this with most of the cards I've been making lately as I'm building up a stash of fall-themed cards and I don't send many at Halloween.  

Happy Crafting!

Bubbles on the Deepwater Collage create a great backdrop for a Boiling Cauldron Halloween card.  A smiley pumpkin and pair of ghosts - from the Poppystamps Whittle Scary Guys - completes the design.  Hi, Jean here with a fun fall mix of favorite dies from my stash, the new Boiling Cauldron, and a popular new Poppystamps set of Halloween icons.

Cut light gray cardstock with the 3" wide Nested Globes die.  Cut it with Deepwater Collage.  Trim and save the bubbly stalk on the right side. Attach the outer edges of the diecut to a dark gray A2 card.  Attach the saved bubbly stalk on the left half of the diecut, under the inner edge of the collage.

Cut the Boiling Cauldron pot from the black Rainbow Reflections 6x6.  Cut the drippy rim from the orange Rainbow Reflections 6x6.  Cut the rising bubbles from the orange Glitzy Glitter Pad 6x6.  Assemble the cauldron and bubbles.  

Cut the Poppystamps Scary Guys ghosts and pumpkin from white and orange cardstock.  Attach scraps of black cardstock behind their faces.

Attach the diecuts to the card - use foam tape for the cauldron and top of the ghosts.

Cut 2 sets of the 4 extra bubbles from the turquoise Rainbow Reflections 6x6.  Attach 7 of them over the stalks for a bright colorful  contrast.

Use your nautical designs for fall cards - it's too early to stash the dies for the winter!  They're great for Halloween - when "anything goes" - so mix, match and layer them with traditional fall icons.

Thanks for visiting - see you next week!

Glitter and Shine Pumpkin Card
by Anne Thompson

This month's blog challenge is all about orange.  This card uses orange mirror paper, orange glitter paper, and an orange plaid paper (as well as some green mirror paper).  It's quite difficult to photograph all of those shiny textures and have it look right, but here's an angle shot that is the best out of twenty or so pictures I took.

0-2 (1)-ink

to make this card

  • start with a white note card
  • cover the front of the card with orange mirror paper from RAINBOW REFLECTIONS MIRROR PAD PP1003
  • die cut the CELESTE PLATE 94699 with green mirror paper from the RAINBOW REFLECTIONS MIRROR PAD PP1003
  • add the Celeste Plate to the front of the note card using a glue pen around the outside edges

0-4 (1)-ink

  • die cut the AUTUMN PUMPKIN 94690 from a scrap of the orange mirror paper for leaves, a scrap of the green mirror paper for the stem, and a piece of orange glitter paper from GLITZY GLITTER PAD GP1007 for the pumpkin itself
  • assemble the pumpkin with the stem and leaves attached...I used Glue Dots

0-3 (1)-ink (1)

  • make a base panel for the pumpkin from a scrap of an orange plaid paper (this one from the Garden Folly papers was left from a pumpkin I made on my last card) just a bit larger than the pumpkin and mount it on a scrap of the orange glitter paper and trim that to be just a tiny bit larger than the plaid piece...I found it best to use Scor-Tape to adhere the plaid paper to the glitter paper
  • pop the pumpkin onto the panel using dimensional foam
  • add this panel at an angle to the front of the notecard
  • and there's still plenty of room on the front to add an appropriate sentiment

Plenty of shadow across the front of the card in this outdoor photo..

IMG_2125 (1)-ink

I do love all the textures and shine on this card!  And it's another one that I could send any time this fall.  It's certainly starting to feel like fall here in Maine--cooler nights and the leaves have begun changing color further north.

Happy Crafting!  And enter our Crazy for Orange blog contest for September--the information is here.

Rotate an underwater coral collage 180 degrees...and it's a spooky, twiggy forest scene for Halloween!  Hi, Jean here with an upside-down Bubble Coral Collage, the new Autumn Pumpkin and those popular ghosts.  Cut a Glitzy Glitter Pad BOO! too.

Cut black cardstock with the 3-¾" wide Curved Cap Pinpoint Layers die.  Cut it with an upside-down Bubble Coral Collage.  Cut the extra coral from black cardstock too.

Cut Autumn Pumpkin from bright orange cardstock and the tendril and leaf from green cardstock.

Cut BOO from the black Glitzy Glitter Pad 6x6 with Mini Vintage Varsity Alphabet. Save an offcut from inside the letters - they'll become an exclamation mark.

Trim an orange/yellow A2 card with a corner-rounding punch.  Attach the diecuts - use foam dots behind the ghosts' heads.  Add the green/gray Treasure Chest Fairy Gemstones.  Cut an A2-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Nautical designs - like this Bubble Coral Collage - are popular for summer cards.  Turn it into a fall design for Halloween with the Boiling Cauldron, Layered Witch Hat or Rickety House. Just a few ideas - or some inspiration for September's Crazy for Orange Challenge.  The entry deadline for the Challenge is the end of the day EST on September 29th.

Add a shadowy, dimensional effect - like itallic curliques - to a Fanciful Gilded Frame background.  The Large Layered Witch Hat and Poppystamps Scary Guys ghosts complete this Halloween scene.  Hi, Jean here with another design featuring the great new frame from our Fall '23 Collection.

Prep Fanciful Gilded Frame by rubbing it briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help release the swirls and curls.  Cut the frame from black cardstock and a Sunny Orange Collection 6x6 sheet.  Trim half of the borders from the bottom and right sides of the black frame diecut so they won't show when the frames are offset   Attach the orange and black frames  to a top-folded orange A2 card - don't attach the two curliques that  will overlap the Curved Cap Pinpoint Layer diecut.

Cut the 2-¼" Curved Cap Pinpoint Layer from a "slightly yellow-er" Sunny Orange Collection sheet.  Attach it to background.

Cut Large Layered Witch Hat from black cardstock.  Cut the vertical trim from the black Glitzy Glitter Pad 6x6.  Cut the hatband from the chartreuse Rainbow Reflections 6x6.

Cut the sweet ghosts - from the Poppystamps Scary Guys die - from heavy white cardstock.  Attach black cardstock behind the eyes.

Attach the diecuts to the card - use foam tape for the tops of the hat and ghosts.  Add the yellow-orange Treasure Chest Fairy Gemstones.  Cut an A2-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Memory Box frame and coverplate dies are great for quick cards.  Use them for pressure-embossing, stenciling and inlaid designs too.  Trim them into different shapes too.

Pumpkin Trick or Treaters
by Trina Pham

IMG_2350

Hello everyone.  I have a fun Halloween card to share today.  I decided to dress up the Autumn Pumpkin from the current 2023 Fall release.  As you can see, they cover the classic mummy, Frankenstein (Frankie) and vampire. 

Started by die cutting the Autumn Pumpkin from white, green and purple cardstockk, thennk blended Lost Shadow, Shabby Shutters and Shaded Lilac distress ink (DI) around the respective edges for shading.  Cut the upper part of the pumpkin from black cardstock and black glitter paper to die cut Frankie’s hair and vampire’s head, respectively.  Used the Circle Basics and Boiling Cauldron dies for Frankie’s hair and eyes (pictured below).  Frankie’s stitches were made with a thin trimmed  black cardstock strip.

IMG_2347 

The Double Stitched Heart and Boiling Cauldron dies were used for the vampire’s head and mouth (pictured below).  Partial diecutting was done to shorten the mouth.  The star die was used for fangs.  Red googley eyes were used here to mix things up. 😉

IMG_2349

The mummy was pretty simple.  The eyes (minus eyelids) were done the same way as Frankie.  Tore strips of copy paper to mummify/wrap it then trimmed off excess.

IMG_2351

For the background, masked off the moon then ink blended Spiced  Marmalade, Rusty Hinge and Black Soot DI.  Splattered with diluted black gouache paint.  Removed the mask then applied residual ink to the moon and stamped the sentiment in black.  Assembled the card onto a white card base to finish.

That wraps it up for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.

Dimensional Stenciling with Memory Box Dies by Jean Okimoto

Embossing and stenciling are great basic papercrafting techniques. Combine them to add texture and dimension to highlight your design.  Hi, Jean here with another idea featuring the bold Fanciful Gilded Frame from our Fall '23 Collection.  The hat-wearing cat is from Poppystamps.

Spritz both sides of an A2-sized rectangle of orange cardstock with a light mist of water. Place a layer of heavy plastic between the Fanciful Gilded Frame die and the cardstock to  cushion and protect the cardstock.  A single layer of plastic from a quart- or gallon-sized Ziploc back or page protector sleeve would be great.  Pressure-emboss the design using the rubber embossing mat and plates required for your machine.

Remove the plastic layer, then replace and attach the die to the embossed cardstock. Use the die as a stencil to apply Onyx Black or Nocturne VersaFine Clair with a sponge or blending brush.  Heat-set the ink.

Diecut the embossed design with the 4" wide Nested Globes die.  Cut the orange cardstock with the 2" wide Nested Globes die too.

Cut the ghosts - from the Ghosts in the Forest set - from the textured side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  Attach scraps of black cardstock behind the faces.

Cut Large Layered Witch Hat from the black Glitzy Glitter Pad sheet.  Cut the hat's vertical trim from the black Rainbow Reflections sheet.  Cut the hatband fron the chartreuse Rainbow Reflections sheet.

Glue two layers of black cardstock together for dimension and cut the new Poppystamps Whittle Purring Cat.  Attach a scrap of the orange Glitzy Glitter Pad sheet behind the nose.

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded A6 card (4-½" x 6") cut from a 12" square sheet.  Or use a side-folded A6 card cut from an 8-½"x11" sheet.  Add taupe Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut an A6-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Hope you'll try this embossing+stenciling technique to add extra dimension and details to your cards.
