The new Sweet Bay Collage creates the perfect window for a floral background from the Garland 6x6 print.  Stitched bold Vintage Varsity Alphabets match the slender Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Out.  Add sparkle with glittered diecuts and punched circles.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a slimline design for Valentine's Day - or any day.

Trim white cardstock to 8-½" x 10-⅞".  Score it at 3-⅝" and 7-¼" for the front and back panels.  The remaining panel will be folded to the inside later to cover the back of the collage.

Cut the center panel with Sweet Bay Collage - keep the two small leaf offcuts.

Cut the Garland floral print with the 3" Circle Basics die.  Tape it behind the Sweet Bay Collage.  Fold and adhere the third panel. Attach the two small white leaf offcuts.  Cut the two leaves again from the pale peach Delicate Pastels glitter sheet.  Attach them over the small white leaf offcuts.

Cut L, V and E from pale peach cardstock with the Vintage Varsity Alphabet.  Cut the second-smallest heart from the Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Out.  Cut the center out with the smallest die from the heart set and replace it with a pale peach glittered heart.

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½").  

Punch ¼" dots from the lime green Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad 6x6 sheet.

BIG Hugs and DIY Conversation Hearts by Jean Okimoto

P1002499

Scatter a handful of colorful hearts on a Slim Pinpoint Heart Plate background and add a glittery greeting.  It's a colorful way to send hugs!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another slimline design that's easy to create in your favorite colors too.

Stamp the greetings - from the Big and Little Valentine Words Clear Stamp Set - on different shades of smooth cardstock with Morning Mist VersaFine Clair.  Heat-set the ink, then diecut them with the smallest Double Stitch Double Heart Cut Out die.  

Cut 5 hearts from gray cardstock with the smallest die too.  They'll add dimension and a shadowy look to the stamped hearts.

Cut Slim Pinpoint Heart Plate from white cardstock.  Cut five of the hearts with the small Double Stitch Heart Cut Out die.  Attach the pinpoint background to a pink slimline card.  Glue the gray hearts in the cutouts.  Attach the multicolored hearts - at an angle - so the gray inserts create a shadowy look.  

Cut the solid Posh Big Hearts Script background from green cardstock.  

Cut the delicate Post Big Hearts Script  from a white 6x6 sheet from the Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad - leave the diecut in the die.  Attach strips of Diecut 'n Bond tape behind the diecut greeting and run it through the machine again to cut the tape.  Remove the offcuts and little bits of tape liner and attach it to the green background.  

Add ¼" punched dots from the pink sheet in the Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad.

P1002504

You can use the Slim Pinpoint Heart Plate in so many ways - it's much more than just a pretty background!  Trim it to form a tag, add a bold greeting and pretty ribbon.  Diecut it into a large heart for a hearts-on-a-heart design.  Transform it into an elegant wedding or anniversary card.  

Thanks for visiting...keep warm and have fun creating Valentines for your special people!

Rainbow Big Hugs
by Trina Pham

21B99C6D-F03E-4C82-9D46-131E6B35D6B0

Hello everyone.  Things have been tough lately and I needed something happy and cheerful, so I made a clean and simple (CAS) rainbow card to share today. 

I started by trimming white cardstock into 3/8” strips and colored them with Copic markers in rainbow colors.  You could avoid this extra step if you have color cardstock.  The strips were then glued onto white cardstock and a heart was die cut from it using the Double Stitch Loving Heart die.

BBB8024E-7C46-4428-824D-769F22F969E2

Next, a Wrapped Stitch Rectangle was die cut from Bristol paper and the same heart was die cut in the center of it.  Adhered the panel to a white card base then inlaid the rainbow heart.  The Big Hugs sentiment was die cut from Bristol paper (3x), black cardstock and white Holiday Glitter paper.  Stacked them for dimension and offset with the black one for a shadow to finish.  There is a shadow die in the set, but it was a tad too big for the space.

I was having fun and while supplies were out, I made another CAS rainbow card.

And that does it for me.  Thank you for joining me today.  Enjoy your day.

Sending Love Shaker Card
by Michelle Bala

20

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing some of the fun new products for Valentine's Day! I used the largest die from the Scallop Pinpoint Loving Heart Die. This die is perfect for creating a shaker card. I die cut a piece of red cardstock than splattered it with white paint. Set aside to dry. 

18

Next, I used the Pinpoint Burst Plate and embossed a piece of aqua cardstock.  Adhere the embossed panel to the card base. When the top die cut panel is dry, turn it over and adhere a piece of clear acetate to the back. This is the shaker window. Frame out the shaker window panel with a double layer of foam tape and remove all tabs.

19

Sprinkle a mix of sequins onto the aqua cardstock where the shaker window will position.  Adhere the top panel over the sequins.  Last, die cut the sentiment Sending Love Posh Script two times. I used the Holiday Glitter Pad and aqua cardstock to die cut the sentiment. I adhered them together slightly off center. Than adhere the sentiment to the card.

Thanks for stopping by for a peek!

Hope you'll give this shaker a try!

A Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape heart - layered over the new Woodgrain Heart - creates a quick Valentine  or friendship card.  Add a layered BIG Hugs Posh Script greeting and strips of gold glittered cardstock to balance the bold hearts - and that's it!

Hi there, Jean Okimoto here with an easy way to add interest and a watercolor-y look to the beautiful floral wide washi tape.  The tape is 4-½" wide - perfect for layering over the 4-½" wide Open Studio Watercolor Paper.

Sponge or brush overlapping layers of picked raspberry, squeezed lemonade and carved pumpkin Distress Oxides onto the smoother side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  Move the colors around with a large damp round paintbrush, the heat-set the inks.  It looks scary-bright here but it'll be softened and muted when the tape is applied!

Attach Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape to the watercolor paper.  Place it between 2 layers of printer paper and run it through a diecut machine between the plates used for cutting.  The machine's pressure smooths small wrinkles and reduces some of the frostiness.

Cut the taped/colored paper with the second-largest Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die.  Cut pale peach cardstock with Woodgrain Heart.

Cut the solid Big Hugs Posh Script from slightly darker peach cardstock.  Cut the delicate BIG Hugs from a gold sheet in the Polished Foil Pad - leave the diecut in the die.  Attach strips of Diecut 'n Bond doublestick tape to the diecut and run it through the machine again to cut the adhesive.  Remove the officuts and bits of tape liner.  Press the diecut (still in the die) firmly onto the peach background diecut and carefully remove the die.

Cut 2 narrow strips of the gold glitter sheet in the Holiday Glitter Pad and trim the ends.

Attach everything to a cream A-6 card (4-½" x 6-¼") - use foamtape for the greeting.

Pick your favorite colors and create multicolored backgrounds for Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape.  I cut 4 additional smaller hearts from the washi tape-covered watercolor paper and I'm saving them for another project to share with you.

Slimline Hugs Valentine
by Angie Cimbalo

Main left tilt

Hello, it's Angie here today! I hope you've enjoyed the 2021 Memory Box Valentines Day release and blog blitz this past week and remember,  you still have until tonight, January 10 at 11:59 pm EST, to leave a comment on any of the posts (Monday through Friday) for your chance to win the corresponding giveaway.

Today I’m using the "Twiggy Hugs" die again, which you can win from Donna's post on Tuesday.  I combined that die with the "Slim Pinpoint Heart Plate", the "Scallop Pinpoint Heart Loving Cut Out" die set and the "Pointy Pine Needle Sprig" die to make my slimline card for today.   I just love making Valentine's Day cards and the new release is filled with lots of dies to make beautiful cards!

Here's how I made my card:

1)  I first took a long piece of card stock and ink blended my background using the following Distress Oxide ink:  Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar.  

2) After ink blending it I sprayed it with water and let it dry.  Next, I ran it through by Gemini Junior with the new "Slim Pinpoint Heart Plate" die and then die cut the "Twiggy Hugs" from the bottom section.

3)  I also cut the "Twiggy Hugs" from white and black card stock and glued them all together, stacked slightly offset for dimension. Here's a closer look at the word die:

SL up close bottom

4)  I added some white gel pen dots and spots (I used #10 gelly roll pen)  randomly to the ink blended sections of the card.  Here's a closer look at the ink blending at the top:

SL up close top

5)  Next, I used the smallest die from the "Scallop Pinpoint Loving Cutout" die set to cut small hearts from 2 shades of "Delicate Pastel Glitter Paper" and adhered them on top of some of the pinpoint hearts created with the slimline die.  The glitter paper pad is so gorgeous!  

6)  Lastly I added three die cut "Pointy Pine Needle Springs" cut from white glitter paper in the spaces left on the card.  Once I had my top panel complete, I adhered it to my slimline card base which is 3.5" by 8.5".

Here's one last look at my card:

New Release Glitter Heart
by Laura Fulcher

IMG_3015

Greetings friends. I am so happy to say that there is a new Memory Box release! I was immediately drawn to the new Crystal Heart die because I knew that the possibilities were endless for how you decide to color the die.

For my card, I decided to use 6 colors of glitter paper from the Memory Box Frosted Glitter pad. I chose six because I figured it was enough colors that I wouldn't have to worry too much about how to place the colors without the same color being next to itself.

To make the card, I cut out 6 glitter hearts:

IMG_3013

Now I have lots of leftover pieces of glitter paper to make more cards. The glitter paper is thick enough that the pieces didn't just fall out. However, I did place repositionable tape behind the leftover pieces so that they wouldn't fall out of the die and I would be able to find the correct pieces at a later date.

I paper-pieced the glitter pieces into a black cardstock heart and then added my sentiment below. Here is a close up:

IMG_3016

I'm curious. How would you use the die? Would you paper-piece the heart? Color the triangles? I would love to know. Have a great weekend!
