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:

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.

Vintage Lantern Merry Christmas
by Angie Cimbalo

Stenciling

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a glittery Christmas card featuring the newly released Vintage Lantern die and the Starlight Snow stencil.  I also used previously released Pine Needle Frame die along with Glitzy Glitter Paper Pad.  Here's a close look at the stenciling I did with Champagne Mist Deco Foil Metallix Gel.

Stenciling

After using the paste/gel on the blue cardstock, I set it aside to dry and then took 2 pieced of gold glitter paper and cut the lantern and pine frame from them.  I inked a separate small piece of white card stock with blue inks to put behind the lantern.  Here's a close up look at the shine from that glitter paper:

Stenciling

I added the pieces of the lantern to build it up and then glued it to the inked background and cut off the excess.  Next I glued the frame around the stenciled panel and popped up the lantern on foam tape.  To finish my card I added one of the white sentiment tabs that were also released just recently.

Here's one last look at my card:

I hope you like my glittery card for today.  I loved creating it and can't wait to send it to someone special!

Joy Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_7195

Hello everyone!  Today's card features new products from the 2023 Memory Box Christmas release.

I began by die cutting the Aurora Snowflake Frame from white cardstock and glued it to a white A2 card base.

Next, I die cut the shadow from the Aurora Snowflake Die from vellum paper and adhered it to the middle of the card front.

The shadow from the word Joy was die cut from green glitter cardstock and the word from red cardstock.  I glued the red letters on top of the green glitter shadow die cut and used foam tape to adhere it on top of the vellum snowflake.

IMG_7196

To finish the card, I glued a Red Sentiment Strip under the word Joy.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments
by Angie Cimbalo

All 3 main

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today and I have some fun ornaments I made for Christmas gifts with dies from the newest holiday release and pre-cut wood slices.  Here's a look at my first ornament:

3rd ornament main

To make this ornament, I used the new Poinsettia Rub-Ons directly on to one of my wood slices as seen below:

Prep 1

Prep 2

Once I had the rub ons on the wood slice, I took some brown Distress Ink and added it to the wood edges.

Prep 3

Next I cut the Brilliant Joy die from the Fester Glitter Pack, 2 colors, a silvery gold and dark green.  If you cut both dies from each color, since one die has it's own outline, you get enough parts to make 3 whole Joy sentiment.  I used one and saved the other two for a later project.

Prep 7

Next I worked on another ornament use more of the blue shades of rub on's.  Here's a look:

Prep 4

I basically did the same think on this ornament, just used different colors. On this one I did not add brown ink to the edges, and the sentiment was made from the Glitzy Glitter and Vintage Pastel Glitter pads.  Here's a look at the completed ornament.

1st ornament main

I wanted to make one more ornament so I for this one I used new Aurora Snowflake die set for it.  As you can see below I cut several of the background snowflake from glitter paper.  For this ornament I used only the Vintage Pastel Glitter pad.  I cut 2 from the lighter color and one from the blue and then I cut the intricate center die from the lighter glitter paper.  I glued it onto the blue background with Glossy Accents - this really helps it stick and works lots better than liquid glue on the glitter side.  I added lots of jewels and gems to the main snowflake and then got ready to add them to the wood slice.

Prep 5

I glued the two light ones to each other with Glossy Accents and then the blue one on top of those two using Glossy Accents and then putting something heavy on it while it dried as you can see below:

Prep 6

Once it was dried, I was ready to drill holes in the top of each wood slice and and add a string hanger for each of them.  Here's another look at all three ornaments.

All 3 1

I hope you like the ornament gifts I made for today's post.  I really had so much fun creating them with the new holiday dies from the 2023 Christmas Release.  Be sure to come back tomorrow and every day for more inspiration from the design team and happy crafting my friends!

Winter Tree Arch Christmas Cards
by Angie Cimbalo

Card 2 close

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with two Christmas cards featuring the new Winter Tree Arch die along with lots of other dies from the newest 2023 Christmas release.

Here's a closer look at my first card:

Card 2 close

As you can see I used Delicate Pastel Glitter pad paper to cut the tree arch die along with the Merry Christmas Charmed Script and the Aurora Snowflake Frame die, all new dies from the release.  I took a piece of white cardstock and added lots of Distress Inks in shades of reds and then used the Nested Globes die set (3rd largest in the set) to cut out the red background for my glitter trees.  I also inked an extra piece of the red so I could cut the sentiment from it too.  

You can see that I pieced the two sentiment dies, red and glitter together.  Now I had two sentiments to chose from, either glitter outline and red inside, or the opposite.  I chose the glitter outline with the red insert letters.  I'm saving the other one for another project.  

I glued the frame glitter die to the card front and then the trees to the red globe.  Next I added the globe to the card front.  I cut the Layered Evergreen Trees dies from 2 colors of green cardstock from the Lush Green paper pad and glued them together then added them to the card front.  I added the sentiment right on top of everything.  

One tip I have for liquid glue on the glitter paper is to use Glossy Accents if you need to adhere something to the glitter side.  It works much better than regular liquid glue and dries stronger too.

One other tip for cutting intricate dies from the glitter pad papers is to run it through your die cutting machines several times.  The glitter paper is very sturdy and thick.  Running it through multiple times will really help it cut perfectly.

Here's one last look:

Card 2 b

Now on to card #2:

Card 1 main

For card number two, I cut a Nested Globe from glitter paper to put behind my die cut white tree arch.  I cut the size arch that was slightly smaller than the tree arch because I wanted the branches to hang over into the card base's white space.  I added the tree arch to the globe piece, then cut Pine Tree Grove dies from the same two colors of green card stock.  After putting them together I added them to the globe.  Here's a close up look:

Card 1 close

I cut the globe bottom with the Nested Globe base die set, using the largest of those dies.  Each base has the main piece plus two thin edges you add on top of the base.  I cut all that from kraft cardstock and added red inks to the two thin edges before adding them to the globe base.  I added the globe base to the globe and took the left over Merry Christmas Charmed Script die and added it toward the bottom of the globe.  To finish my card I added a few small snowflake embellishments from my stash, 3 on the globe top and six across the base.  Here's one last look:

I hope you like my cards for today and I've inspired you with these designs.  Be sure to come back every day to see the lovely inspiration from the design team.  Thanks so much for stopping by and happy creating!

Hummingbird Joy
by Angie Cimbalo

Card main

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a holiday card featuring the new Layered Hummingbird, Classic Pine Needle Springs and Brilliant Joy dies from the latest release.  I combined it with a previously released die called Forest Pine Branch.

Here's a closer look:

Card close

I cut the bird, branch and some of the pine sprigs from white card stock and then I cut more sprigs from 2 different colors from the Fresh Aqua paper pack.  I stacked one white and one of each of the other two aqua colors and glued them together at the base stem slightly offset from each other.  I wanted the branches to seem really full so by doing this it gives a lot more dimension and texture to the whole card.  

I colored the branch and bird with alcohol markers.  The original branch die had pine springs on it but I cut them off to use the springs from the new classic set of dies.  I added the branch with the new tri-stacked sprigs and then popped the bird up on the branch.  Here's another look:

Card close

The Joy die cut was cut from white and black glitter paper, the black is from the Glitzy Glitter pack and the white is from the Vintage Pastel Glitter pack.  I cut the background die from the black and the other die from the white.  This die is very cool because it also has an outline inside the 2nd word die.  So when you cut both dies from 2 different colored papers, you can make a combination of three complete word dies which saves lots of time, and you have 2 extra word dies to use on other cards.  One tip I have if you need to glue something to the glitter paper, it's a lot easier to use Glossy Accents and it adheres with a much more permanent bond.

Here's one last look:

Card close

I hope you like my Christmas card for today, it's super easy to make and I think it looks so very festive.  I know just who I will be sending this card to!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope your holiday season is wonderful.

Christmas Paper Quilt Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I have a card design today using he Poinsettia Garland pattern paper in an easy and forgiving quilt pattern.  

5612DFB0-E539-4D8E-9374-4B6C99F24390

Paper Selection:

Chose 2 light papers and 2 darker papers, having 1 with glitter and one with a simple pattern from the Poinsettia Garland paper paid.  This will help with visual interest.  Next pick either a matching glitter or mirror card.  I chose a gold glitter paper from the Festive Glitter Pad to add a lot of bling so my card will stand out.  Cut the pattern paper into 4, 6" x 1/2" strips and the glitter paper into 5, 1/4" x 6" strips.

Card Base:

Take an A2 size light card base, any color, and draw a line down the middle in both directions.  Cut a light weight paper to 2" square. Adhere in the center like a diamond, lining up the corners of the square with the lines on the card base.  This ensures the square is center.  

Paper Pattern:

Start with 1 pcs of the pattern paper by applying adhesive to the back, recommending to use tape or a collage medium.  If using liquid adhesive use one with very little water like Kraft Tacky glue or collage medium.  Place your first piece to line up with the end of the center and along the side.  For the next piece line it up along the center pcs with one end at the first paper. Continue to go around the card lining up the paper.  Alter between either the 2 dark papers or 2 gold fold paper for a better visual effect at the end.  Trim off excess as you go and use the smaller strips to fill in. If the paper doesn't line up completely don't worry the strips of glitter paper help hide that.  Now glue the strips of glitter paper over the seams of the paper in the same pattern.  Trimming off the excess to use for the smaller sections.

9BACBBFC-6379-4B66-94D6-FF353D63AA4A

Center Square:

Die cut the 3 smaller dies from the Small Poinsettia Layers from white card stock.  Ink blend with Distress Ketch Flamingo and in the center with Lumberjack Plaid.  Die cut the center from the same glitter paper.  Adhere together.  Die cut the outline die from Brilliant Joy from mirror gold paper from the Rainbow Reflections pad.  Save the letters.  Cut one of the plan lighter pattern paper to 2" square and ink blend around the Distress Ground Espresso.  Cut the glitter paper to 2 1/4" square.  Adhere together with liquid glue.  

22CC5FD9-D9AC-4F57-88FA-E3F353E38B4B

Assembly:

Adhere the card base on a A2 size card.  Adhere the center square to the center.  Adhere the JOY die cut to the center and then adhere the poinsettia to the center of the O.

Blue Friendly Snowman
by Trina Pham

IMG_3617

Hello everyone.  I’m sharing another monochromatic blue Christmas card today.  It features the Aurora Snowflake cling stamp, Layered Friendly Snowman die and Brilliant Joy die from the current 2023 Christmas collection.  

Created the sky using the VersaMark Resist technique.  Stamped the snowflakes background onto white glossy paper with VersaMark ink then set aside to dry (could use your heat tool to speed up the process).  A ground mask was then fussy cut from masking paper and adhered to the bottom of the panel.  Ink blended Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon distress inks (DI) next, and wiped off excess ink with a paper towel to complete the technique.  The VersaMark ink stamped image resisted the blended inks.

IMG_3618

The snowman pieces were die cut from white cardstock.  The two back body layers were colored with C0/C2 Copic Sketch markers.  The scarf and earmuffs were ink blended with Blueprint Sketch DI using a finger blending brush.  Shaded the nose with a black Polychromos pencil.  Didn’t colour it orange in keeping with the blue monochromatic color scheme.

IMG_3619

The JOY sentiment layers were die cut from Bristol and white glitter papers.  The letters were ombré ink blended with all three blue DIs mentioned above to tie it all together.  Die cut JOY two more times from thick white paper and stacked for dimension.  Assembled the card onto a white card base to finish.

IMG_3620

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

A plump red felt bird and a glittery Christmas tree fill the new Bird's Nest with holiday spirit.  Leaf Bunches and berries from Birch Press Design brighten the background.  Hi, Jean here with a holiday slimline design.

Cut Leaf Bunches  from dark green cardstock. Cut the 2.25" wide Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectange from white cardstock.  Attach it to a white slimline card (8-⅝" x 3-⅝").

Cut the large Layered Evergreen Trees background from lime green cardstock.  Cut the delicate top layer from the green Glitzy Glitter Pad 6x6.  We're working on the link for the Layered Evergreen Trees #94751 - here's a picture:

Cut Bird's Nest from kraft cardstock.

Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to red wool-blend felt and cut one of the Nestled Chickadee Duo birds.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps adhesives from saturating it.  Cut the head and trim sections from red cardstock.  Cut the wings from the red Rainbow Reflections 6x6.  Attach a scrap of black cardstock behind the eye cutout.

Cut the Birch Press Design Mixed Berry Contour Layers stems from the green cardstock.  Cut 5 berries from the Rainbow Reflections red 6x6 and from yellow cardstock.  Layer the berries - rotate the yellow pieces to fill the cutouts on the red berries

Assemble the Christmas tree, chickadee and the front portion of the Bird's Nest.  

Attach Leaf Bunches to the stitched rectangle background - place the single extra leaf so it covers the stem of the leaves on the top left corner.  

Attach the back layer of the nest, then the Christmas tree and the chickadee, then the top layers of the nest.  Attach the berry stems and berries.

Cut Happy Holidays Streamlined Script from the green cardstock - leave the tiny dot for the "i" in the die until you're ready to attach it.

Thanks for visiting our blog...have a great weekend!
