Snowy Big Bear Hugs by Jean Okimoto

P1012114

Send warm winter hugs with a plush felt polar bear, a snowy background and Berry Red heart garlands.  It can be a Valentine card - for anyone, any age.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here turning favorite fall and winter dies into heartfelt greetings for the special people in your life.

P1012091

Diecut layers of white, red and Snowspeckle Wide Washi Tape on a dark gray background create a dimensional forest scene.  Cut Snowglobe Backer from white cardstock.  Cut Heart Streamer Globe from a red 6x6 in the Berry Red Collection.  Cut Winter Wood Done Layer from white cardstock.

Attach Snowspeckle Wide Washi Tape to the Earth Neutral dark gray 6x6. Save the outer diecut for another project - we're using the inner offcut (inside offcut?) here.

Trim the globe and dome dies just below the first scoreline at the base.  Attach the diecuts in the order show above.  Tie the layers together with silver cord and curl the ends using the edge of a bonefolder or a plastic burnishing tool.  Follow the curve of the cord for best results.  

Attach adhesive label paper (or a sticker sheet) to white felt. It stablizes the felt and keeps adhesives from saturating it.  Cut the bear from the Snowglobe Backer set.  Define the eyes with a very fine-tipped screwpunch.  Attach black cardstock behind the face for the eyes and nose.

Cut the BIG Hugs background from pale gray cardstock.  Pressure-emboss it with the BIG Hugs die using the embossing mat and plate(s) required for your machine. Cut the greeting from a red 6x6 in the Festive Glitter Pad.  Assemble the layered greeting.

Attach adhesive label paper to red felt and diecut a heart with the 5-heart die included in the Heart Streamer Globe set.  Attach it to the bear.

Attach the diecuts to a pale gray A6 card (4-½" x 6-¼").  Add clear Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones.  Cut an A6-sized sheet of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

If polar bears aren't common in your neighborhood - add a pair of lovebirds to your card instead.  Or a puppy!

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

Hello Friend Slimline
by Angie Cimbalo

Close

Hello and welcome!  It's Angie here today with this slimline card using some newly released dies from Memory Box.  Memory Box released 3 new dies today and they are 2 gorgeous layering flower dies plus this beautiful sentiment die.

The new dies are "Hello Friend Posh Script Die" (94586), "Cottage Flower Stem" (94611) and "Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral" (94618).  

Here's a closer look at my card:

Close

The new flower die has been cut from Yupo paper that was inked with alcohol inks and the flower centers were cut from the glitter papers. I embossed the top portion of the slimline panel after cutting it with the "Wrapped Stitched Slimline" die and then added a strip of the lighter glitter paper to tuck the stems under. Some flowers are popped up and others were glued directly to the background. Both the butterfly and the sentiment were both cut from the glitter papers and after adding them to the card, I added a few gems.

Here's one last look:

I hope you like my slimline floral card for today. Be sure to stop by the Memory Box blog each day for more inspiration from the whole design team.

Thanks for stopping by!

It’s a Daisy Today by Jean Okimoto

P1011561

It's easy to create a daisy with the Contempo Poinsettia and Stencil Set from our holiday collection.  Offset the outline, add a glittered heart and Vintage Varsity Alphabet greeting.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a Valentine slimline design - and some inspiration for our January Alphabet Challenge.

P1011519

Need a longer strip of cardstock for diecutting?  Join 2 strips of the Vibrant Violet 6x6 and cut it with the  7.2" x 2.2" Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangle die.  The seamline  - near the top of the strip in the photo above - will be covered by the petals.

P1011522

Cut Contempo Poinsettia from a white glittered 6x6 in the Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad.  Save the delicate outline diecut for another project - we're using the petal offcuts here.  Use the Contempo Poinettia stencil as a template to attachthe petals to the rectangle - except 1 large petal.  Attach the petals so they'll conceal the joined sections of the rectangle background.  Attach the remaining petal to the background.

Cut the poinsettia again from white cardstock - save the petals for another project - we're using the white outline to contrast the white glittered petals.  Cut the heart - from the Have a Heart set - from a dark pink 6x6  in the Graceful Garden Glitter Pad.  Attach the white outline and the glittered heart.  

P1011554

Cut LOVE from a light pink 6x6 in the Vibrant Violet Collection with the Vintage Varsity Alphabet.  Attach the rectangle to a slimline card (3-½" x 8-½") of White Woodgrain Paper (it's actually cardstock).  Add pale lavender Fairy Gemstones  from the Winter Fantasy set.  The gemstone colors look similar from the top - turn the acetate sheet over to the backside and it'll be easy to identify the different shades.

Cut a slimline-sized rectangle of cardstock to cover and protect the card front for mailing.

Contempo Poinsettia can be used throughout the year for different blossoms and seasons.  Build unique flowers in soft spring pastels, bright summer colors and rich fall shades.  As my friend Jacky says, "it's the die that keeps on giving!"  The Memory Box 6x6 Color Collections and Glitter Pads have the perfect colors for every season and occasion.

Thanks for visiting...have a great weekend!

Glitter Spread the Cheer
by Angie Cimbalo

Hello and welcome!  I'm up on the Memory Box blog with this fun sparkly card using the "Curled Holly Branch Die", the "Stunning Mandala" 3D embossing folder, some fairy gems, heat embossing and some gorgeous blue glitter paper.  Here's a closer look:

Don't you just love the depth of that gorgeous Memory Box glitter paper?

To make my card 

1)  I first inked the debossed side of the Mandala 3D embossing folder.

2)  I die cut a piece of dark blue card stock from the "Ocean Blue" paper pad with a "Wrapped Stitched" rectangle die.

3)  I die cut a piece of blue "Twinkling Jewel" glitter paper with a smaller "Wrapped Stitched" rectangle die.

4)  I added both rectangles to the embossed panel and then stamped the sentiment from "Festive Christmas Greetings" on white card stock with black ink and heat embossed it in clear embossing powder.

5)  I cut the sentiment into a thin strip and then I die cut the "Curled Holly Branch" die from white card and added it to the glitter paper.

6)  I added some Christmas Fairy Jewels to the berries and then added the sentiment strip to the bottom.

7)  I added the panel to a card base and my card was complete!

Here's one last look at my card:

I I hope you enjoy my card for today, it was one of my favorite Christmas card that I sent out this year!
Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow for more design team inspiration.

Flower Die Fireworks New Years Card
by Sara Cook

I hope everyone had a good holiday weekend.  It is time for the New Years celebrations next.  I have a New Years card design using the Seed Stem die as fireworks.  Memory Box dies are so versatile, making them my favorite. The Bennet Alphabet die set makes it easy to create your own sentiment.

FDDF1158-CEEA-44BF-BFD4-0517D60D150C_1_201_a

Background:

Cut black card stock to 4"x51/4" and emboss using the Ringadings 3D embossing folder.  Center it in the folder and hold in place with temporary tape.  Splatter with metallic silver and blue paint.  I used Gansai Tambi Gem and Starry water color sets.

1D591327-8162-449D-AE88-6DF070C3B610

Fireworks:

Die cut the top of the Seed Stems die from silver and blue glitter paper from the Glitzy Glitter Pad.  Die cut 2 silver and 1 blue.  Trim off the stem.  Turn the die cut upside down and it looks like firework.  

3D819A37-1DAB-4CB3-A471-F0E12EAABDBB

Sentiment:

Die cut "happy new year" from the same silver and blue glitter paper as the fireworks using the Banner Alphabet die set.

7EF5B3A5-31A7-4F9A-97D9-A8DA156F907F

Assembly:

Cut a A2 panel from the same blue glitter paper and adhere to a A2 card base.  Adhere the embossed background panel in the center.  Adhere the fireworks, upside down Seed Stems, with just tape or glue in the center of the due cut, at the top center of the card.  Arrange the die cut letter in the lower half of the card to spell happy new year.

New Year’s Shaker
by Trina Pham

DB8250CD-6CD4-44E1-BAE3-1C190FB4A755

Hello and happy Boxing Day!  Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.   Now that Christmas is over, my card today focuses on the next big celebration.  And since the edge-to-edge or infinity or pocket or frameless or flat shaker card (yes, it is known by all these names!) is so popular right now, I thought they pair well together.

3 things come to mind when I think of new year’s - glitz, glam and gold! 😉  Started by creating a golden bokeh background on watercolor paper.  Using the wet-on-wet technique, applied clean water to the entire watercolor panel, then randomly dropped in various colours of yellow
from my Gansai Tambi" watercolor paints.  Once dried, used DIY circle stencils from my stash to add white pigment ink and white gouache paint with a sponge dauber through these stencils.   Trimmed the panel down to A2 size and spritz with a shimmer spray for some sparkle.

B0614BD0-81FA-45C4-B1F3-89328EDAF2C4

Next, a piece of clear plastic was trimmed to slightly larger than A2 size.   Added strong double-sided tape along the four sides on the back of the panel.   Remove the release paper from three sides and fold the plastic over and secure.  This will create a pocket with the opening on one end.  Add in the shaker bits , then close off the final side. 

850F03AC-C850-4013-A2DB-9C4DD34C5A1D

Mounted the shaker panel to a white card base.   Die cut the letters from gold glitter paper, then adhered on top of the plastic to finish.

Thank you for joining me today.  Have a safe and happy new year!  See you next year!

Christmas-y dies are great for holiday thank you cards too!  Layer a traditional snowman  over a frosty Flurries Wide Washi Tape background and add pretty pink accessories to create a sweet snowgal to say thanks for holiday gifts and thoughtfulness.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here...Cheers to everyone celebrating tomorrow!

Cut white cardstock with the largest Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die.  Cut the rectangle with the Oval Snowman Collage.  Mask the adjacent areas with strips of Post-It notes and color the carrot nose and twiggy arms with markers.

Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to pink wool-blend felt and cut the scarf from the collage die set.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps adhesives fron saturating it.

The collage set includes a tophat die for a snowman - but we're DIY-ing a poufy, glittery pink hat for the snowgal.  Cut the delicate Thank You Posh Script layer from the pink Delicate Pastel glitter pad sheet - save the offcuts from the O and U.  Attach them behind the snowgal's head - she now has a hat!

Adhere Poppystamps' Flurries Wide Washi Tape to black paper or lightweight cardstock.  Cut a 3-½" x 4" piece of it and run it through a diecut machine to eliminate any air pockets and smooth it out.  

Attach the Flurries background the diecut rectangle.  Attach the rectangle to a side-folded white A2 card.

Cut the greeting background from a gray 6x6 sheet in the Earth Neutrals Collection.  Attach it behind the pink greeting.  Attach the greeting to the card.  Add orange jewels.

Gold Polished Foil adds a jeweled, faceted look to the Large Pine Cone diecuts on a holiday slimline card.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with my last Christmas card of the year - and some tips for assembling pinecones and poinsettias.

Cut white cardstock with the largest Slim Basic Rectangles die.  Cut the rectangle with the Diagonal Stripe Collage.  Attach a strip of the dark green Garland 6x6 floral strip behind the cutout.  Attach the rectangle to a slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-⅝").

Cut Large Pine Cone from the gold Polished Foil sheet - leave the diecuts in the die to keep them in sequence for assembly.  Here's a tip - attach doublestick tape to a narrow strip of scrap cardstock (about ⅜" x 3-½") - then attach the diecut pieces to the adhesive-covered strip beginning at the bottom.  That's easier than attaching the pieces to each other - a lot easier!  I attached the pieces closer than they are on the envelope illustration for a more compact look.

Cut Layered Poinsettia from a dark pink sheet in the Berry Red Collection.  Cut two of the tiny 3-pointed center sections from a gold sheet in the Glitzy Glitter Pad.  Another tip - cut or punch a 1 or 1-¼" circle of scrap cardstock.  Cover it with adhesive and use it as a base to assemble the poinsettia.

Cut Pine Needle Trio from a light green sheet in the Lush Green Collection.  Cut Holly Bundle from a slightly darker Lush Green sheet - we're using just 2 of the leaves here.

Assemble the card and add 3 of the pinkish Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Quick Last Minute Holiday Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I was 1 card short for sending out my holiday cards this year and came up with this quick but stunning card using the Slim Confetti Plate and Let It Snow Posh Script die.   It only took me 15 minutes to die cut and assembly.  

A77E865F-A768-4D50-9668-981712F5B320

Snow Fall Center:

Die cut the lower portion Slim Confetti Plate out of the lightest blue paper from Stormy Blue paper pack. Die cut the 3rd largest Studio Oval Layer dies set from the Slim Confetti Plate die cut.  The Studio Ovals Layer dies work with the Poppy Stamp Dimond Snowflake Oval Frame die.

F71362F5-D917-4CF1-BAE2-8109F5ADCE79

Frame:

Die cut the Poppy Stamp Dimond Snowflake Oval Frame die from a light blue paper from Delicate Pastel Glitter pad.  I recommend to use a metal shim to cut this large die from glitter paper.  Adhere the light blue Fairy Jewels to the center of the snowflakes.  I would recommend to add a dot of glue to help adhere the jewels to the glitter paper.

0BE5D18C-17B8-4FBC-B646-24672AE5BE18

Sentiment:

Die cut the bottom Let It Snow Posh Script die from the same light blue glitter paper and the top die from the same light blue paper.  Glue the sentiments.  Add the same light blue Fairy Jewel to the top of the "I".

7C58F6F9-CD2A-4585-8B22-7AC72F192D3F

Assembly:

Glue the Slim Confetti Plate die cut to the back from the Dimond Snowflake Oval Frame.  Adhere to a A2 white card by just adding glue to the center of the frame, advising the snowflakes.  Adhere the sentiment with foam squares to the center of the frame.
