Cut the base sections of Hippity Hoppity Bunny from textured white cardstock.  Color areas of the ears, paws and muzzle with Distress Oxide spun sugar.  Color the eye areas with a black marker.  Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to tan wool-blend felt and cut the remaining pieces.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and prevents glues from saturating it.

Highlight the texture of Cream Woodgrain Paper (cardstock) with Vintage Sepia VersaFine using the direct-to-paper process.  Cut the basket.

Color white cardstock for thge eggs - scribble marker inks to cut 6 eggs of each color.  Blue, Violet, Blue Green and Fuchsia Zebra Mildliners were used here.  Diecut the eggs and attach the behind the basket.

Diecut Wild Grass Border from 2 shades of green in the new Greenery 6x6 Collection.  Trim the sides with the bottom of the 3" wide Nested Globes die.  Layer the darker border behind the lighter border.

Cut a lavender/blue 6x6 from the Magonolia Plaid set with the 3-½" wide Nested Globes die.  Cut a pale lavender 6x6 from the Twilight Purple Collection with the 3" wide die.

Cut and assemble Bird's Nest from light kraft cardstock.

Cut Berry Branches and Leaves from a Greenery 6x6 sheet.  Save the leaves for another project.

Cut the eggs from the new Woven Basket of Eggs set.  The blue eggs are from the Glitzy Glitter Pad.  The pink, yellow and green eggs are from Graceful Garden Glitter Pad.

January Anemone Collection…from Bud to Blossom by Jean Okimoto

Cut white cardstock with the die from the Vintage Tray 3D Embossing Folder Set.  Cut the buds and tall blossom from the White Anemone Rub Ons.  It's a set of two rub on transfer sheets with beautiful floral and foliage images.  Leave a generous border around the designs.  Carefully remove the paper liner and tap the designs onto the white Vintage Tray rectangles.

The rub on set includes a wood craft burnishing stick to transfer the design. You'll also get perfect results using a diecut machine to press the design onto the cardstock - place the cardstock and rub on between two layers of printer paper and roll it through using the plates you'd use for diecutting.  Carefully remove the frosty plastic layer.

Cut a sheet from the Ocean Blue 6x6 Collection to 4-¼" x 5-½".  Spritz both sides with a light mist of water, then emboss it using the plate(s) required for your machine.  Air-dry it if it's still damp, then cut it with the Vintage Tray die. The Ocean Blue set includes several colors to complement the rub ons for custom-colored card fronts.

Attach the rub on rectangles to the blue rectangles.

Cut white cardstock with the Greetings Debut Script background die.  Cut the detailed top layer from the blue Glitzy Glitter Pad 6x6.  I love how the tiny dot for the "i" is attached as a drop-down section from the "t" - no tiny little dots here!

Cut a slightly darker Ocean Blue Collection 6x6 with the largest A2 Rectangle Frames die for a perfect fit and smooth edges.  Attach it to a top-folded white A2 card.

Attach the diecuts to the card - use foam tape for the greeting.  Add clear Christmas Fairy Dewdrops.  Cut an A2-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

The White Anemone Rub Ons have a soft matte look to enhance your cards.  Use them in groups - or spotlight them individually.  Add one of the 8 new greetings from the collection...and your card is ready to go!

Winter Tree Arch Blues
by Trina Pham

IMG_4346

Hello everyone.  With the weather going from unseasonably mild to unseasonably freezing cold in a day here, it inspired me to create this wintry card featuring never before used (NBUS) Winter Tree Arch die with some leftover pine tree die cut pieces from this post.

Partial die cutting was used with the Winter Tree Arch die to make the trees taller from its original design (see comparison photo below).  Subsequently, partial die cutting was also done with the Nested Globes dies to create the matching arch background and frame.

IMG_4350

Faded Jeans and Speckled Egg distress inks (DI) were then ink blended on the background piece before splattering it with diluted white gouache paint for snow.  Kept the pine trees white, but for some sparkle, die cut the top layers from white glitter paper. 

IMG_4351

The sentiment was also die cut from white glitter paper and mounted on its navy blue shadow.  Assembled the card onto a white woidgrain panel to finish.

IMG_4352

 And that does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

A felt Layered Hummingbird delivers warm hugs on a cold winter day.  Hi, Jean here with a layered slimline design combining classic favorites and a favorite new bird set from our holiday release.  I've never seen a gray + silver hummingbird in our yard - but here he is!

Cut Birch Tree Trunks from a white Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad 6x6.  We're just using 4 of the 5 trunks here.

Cut 2 Double Stitch Heart Cut Outs to create an inlaid design.  

Cut the 2-¼" wide Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangle from the smooth side of textured gray cardstock.

Attach adhesive label paper (or a sticker sheet) to medium- and light-gray wool-blend felt.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and prevents adhesives from saturating it.  Cut the Layered Hummingbird base from the medium-gray felt.  

Cut the head overlay from the light felt.  Cut the wings and lower part of the "face" from a silver Rainbow Reflections 6x6 sheet.  Attach the layers to the base.  Push a toothpick or skewer thru the layers to define the cutout for the eye.

Cut the beak section from light orange cardstock.  Color the eye area with a black marker.  Attach the diecut behind the head.

Stamp the greeting - from the Big and Little Reverse Words Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock with Tulip Red VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink, then trim it with the tab die that's included in the stamp set.  The tab is designed to cut the largest greeting - use the short ends to trim the left and right sides.

Attach the diecuts to a textured gray slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-⅝").  Add red Christmas Fairy Dewdrops.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

The Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles and Wrapped Stitched Rectangles sets coordinate with Memory Box stitched designs.  They frame the design without competing with the stitched diecuts.  They're great with the lovable Poppystamps Whittles too!  

Try the versatile design in different colors - use kraft or aqua cardstock for the background and card.  Use pink for the greeting, hearts and jewels.  

Thanks for visiting...keep safe and warm and have a great weekend!

Bundled Bird and Embossed Birches by Jean Okimoto

P1029345 2

Send warm wishes with the Bundled Bird wrapped in a cozy felt scarf.  Glittered heart garlands add sparkle to a 3D-embossed birch forest.  Hi, Jean here with a design for Valentine's Day...or any winter day.

P1029379

We're adding the embossed image directly onto the card here.  Cut, score and fold a textured gray A2 card.  Spritz both sides of the card front with a light mist of water.  Emboss it with the Birch Tree Forest 3D Embossing Folder.  The background is done - and it's already "attached" to the card!

Cut the Heart Streamer Globe garlands and extra hearts from the bright pink Glitzy Glitter Pad 6x6.

Attach adhesive label paper (or a sticker sheet) to tan and bright pink wool-blend felt.  Cut Bundled Bird base and two layers of the scarf.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps adhesives from saturating it.

Cut the wings and tail from the pale gold Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad 6x6.  Cut the head overlay from kraft cardstock.

Cut the beak and eye section from orange cardstock.  Color the area that will appear behind the eye cutout with a black marker.  Attach the diecut behind the head.  Assemble Bundled Bird.

Stamp the greeting - from the Big and Little Reverse Words Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock with Charming Pink VersaFine Clair. Cut it the greeting tab die that's included in the set - position the short end of the die to trim the extra space.  Trim the other end too. 

P1029365 3

Attach the diecuts to the card - use foam tape for the greeting and behind Bundled Bird's tail.

Hope your New Year is off to a great start...thanks for visiting our blog today!

Love grows...on repurposed Lavender Bouquet stems in a winter garden.  A Woodgrain Heart background and bold plaid balance glittery red hearts and gold crystals.  Hi, Jean here with a Valentine design for your special guy.

Cut light kraft cardstock with Woodgrain Heart.  Cut a 1-½" x 5-½" strip of the Christmas Jolly 6x6 plaid.

Cut Lavender Bouquet from black cardstock -  trim the blossoms and about ¼" from the tops of the 4-stem piece shown on the right side here.  Trim the blossoms of the other stems.

Cut the larger heart - with the Love You Gallery Script die - from the dark red  Festive Glitter Pad 6x6.  Cut two groups of the small hearts with the die from the Heart Streamer Globe set.

Cut just the background of the "love" portion of the Sending Love Daily Script set from red cardstock.  Cut the detailed top layer from black cardstock -  save the delicate oval from the "o" and the little piece in the top section of the "e."  Pressure-embossing the background makes it easy to adhere the delicate top layer - it'll fit right into the debossed background.

Pressure-emboss the red background with the detailed die using the rubber embossing mat and plate(s) required for your machine.  Assemble the greeting - add the saved black pieces.

Snowy Happy New Year

Main

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a snow filled Happy New Year card!  This time of year is very special for my family as we have several family birthdays during the last week of every year - it's time to celebrate!  

To make my card I first took a piece of red cardstock and the new "Snow Flurries stencil" and used some white embossing paste with it to create the falling snow background.  Here's a look at that step.

Process

Once it dried, I added thin strips of white glitter paper to the edges.  Next I cut the 2 snowflake dies from the "Aurora" snowflake die set from the same white glitter paper.  The paper is from the "Delicate Pastel Glitter Paper" pad.

I also cut 3 more of the snowflake background from white cardstock and glued them behind the glitter one.  I added the glitter top layer of snowflake to the glitter stack and then popped it up on the card front.  I heat embossed the sentiment from clear stamp set called "Sweet Christmas," onto black cardstock and then trimmed it to a small rectangle.  To finish my card I added lots of "Christmas Jewels" to the snowflake and the corners of the sentiment.

Here's one last look:

Main

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and wish you the happiest of new years!  Welcome 2024!

Holiday wishes of peace, love and joy from Memory Box to everyone celebrating today!  Hi, Jean here with a mix-and-match holiday greeting.  The ornament trio combines classic favorites, Christmas '23, and some extras from Poppystamps and Birch Press Design. 

The sweet Layered Hummingbird - with a few alterations and minimal layering - becomes a peace dove here.  He's perched on a Birch Press Design diecut that (I hope!) resembles a young olive branch.

Cut the Frilling Snowflake Ornament background from three shades of green cardstock.  Punch holes at the top and attach gold cord.  Curl the cord with the side of the flower burnishing tool or a bonefolder - follow the curve of the cord for best results.

Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to white wool-blend felt and cut the main section of Layered Hummingbird.  Cut the top of the head/beak section from orange cardstock.  Color the eye area with a black marker.  Attach it behind the felt diecut, then trim the long hummingbird's beak to resemble a dove's beak.  Cut two of the big wings from a white Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad sheet.  Trim the little point from one wing. Attach the wings.

Cut the branch - from the Birch Press Design Jovial Blooms and Leaves Contour Layers set - from darker green cardstock.

Cut the Poppystamps Heart Jumble hearts from the red Glitzy Glitter Pad sheet.

Cut the largest Alpine Snowflake from the white Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad sheet.

Glue two pieces of white cardstock together and diecut them with the 2" x 7" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.

P1029102 2

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-⅝"  8-½") - use foam tape for the bird.  Stamp the greeting - from the Shining Star Clear Stamp Set - on lime green cardstock with Green Oasis VersaFine Clair.  Quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.  Trim it with one end of the 1.1" x 6.1" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die, then trim the excess with an edge of a larger die.

Attach the greeting with foam tape.  Add red Christmas Fairy Dewdrops.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.
