Oceans of Happiness
by Trina Pham


Hello everyone.  I used the Curling Waves stencil last time, so thought I would use the Curling Waves embossing folder (EF) and matching dies this time.  I will admit this did not turn out the way I wanted. ☹️

Anywho, I started by foiling the Sunburst hot foil plate with Champagne hot foil in the upper left corner of a Bristol panel.  Die cut a circle stencil to apply Wild Honey distress ink (DI) for the sun.  Applied Squeezed Lemonade DI for the sky.  


For the ocean, blended Blueprint Sketch DI.  Die cut the curling waves from scraps of white paper next, then dry embossed them with the EF.  Turquoise dye ink was then used to add shading to them.  Arranged and glued the waves to the panel.  Stamped the sentiment in black and added turquoise jewels to finish.


Pretty straight forward.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

Thinking of You
by Donna Sledzik


Good morning everyone!  Today's card features new products from the 2022 May and June Memory Box release.  

To make my card, I used the Sunburst Hot Foil Plate to add gold foil to white cardstock.  Next, I used a circle die to cut a circle around the foiled sunburst.  I used Distress Oxide Inks to add color to the sunburst.  The colors I used were: Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Inks.

The leaves were embossed and die cut from the new Tropical Leaves 3D Embossing Folder and Dies.  I used a blender brush and Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Inks to add color to the leaves.


I trimmed the sunburst circle and glued it to a white cardstock panel, which I adhered to a black cardstock mat.  I glued this panel to a white card base.  I stamped the sentiment on a strip of black cardstock and white heat embossed it.  This was glued along the bottom of the foiled sunburst.  Next, I glued the leaves in place.

The seagulls were die cut from black cardstock and glued to the card.

To finish the card, I spattered it with gold ink.


That's it for today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Curling Waves Butterfly
by Trina Pham


Hello everyone.  The new mini Island Vacation release is live and consists of fun embossing folders with matching dies and/or stencils.  I stretched the Curling Waves layering stencil set of 2 from the release to create my card today.  But these waves look so cool when used as intended. 😉
Normally, I leave the sentiment till the end, but because I am hot foiling directly onto the panel, the Posh Hello sentiment was hot foiled with silver foil first.  Using blender brushes next, Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Villainous Potion distress inks were ink blended for an ombré.  Wiped off excess ink with a paper towel, then lightly splattered with diluted white gouache paint for some texture.


For the Stella Butterfly, the background was die cut from vellum, while the outline top layer was die cut twice from Bristol paper.  Glued the background piece to one of the outline pieces, then applied clear glitter onto the vellum through the openings.  Added the other outline piece on top to cover up any glitter that may have accidentally got onto the first piece.  Completed the butterfly by die cutting the body/antenna three times from Bristol paper and stacking them for dimension.  A finger brush was then used to apply white pigment ink over the Curling Waves stencil (used the first stencil layer with the larger opening) to create the butterfly trail.  Mounted the butterfly, then added star and dot details along the trail with a white gel pen to finish.


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

Charlotte Daisies Birthday
by Trina Pham


Hello and happy weekend.  Today I’ve stretched the Charlotte Blooms and Leaves dies from the 2022 May release and turned them into daisies to create a birthday card inspired by this month’s blue and yellow colour challenge at The Flower Challenge in support of Ukraine.
The flowers were die cut from Bristol paper while the centers were die cut from the lightest yellow Sunny Orange paper.  Each flower is two of the same flower cutouts, and offset.  Coloring / shading was then done with Copic Sketch markers.
yellows - Y11, Y15, YR24
greys - C4, C2, C1, C00
The background is a Bristol panel ink blended with Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon distress inks (DI) using blender brushes.  The “trellis” was die cut from Bristol paper using the Double Diamond Lattice Plate from Poppy Stamps.  It’s actually a full A2 size, but was reduced by die cutting a frame with Rectangle Basics dies then adhering it over top and trimming away the excess. 


The Posh Happy Birthday sentiment was foiled next with Prism hot foil using the Spellbinders Glimmer hot foil system.  Applied Mermaid Lagoon DI to it, wiped off excess ink with a paper towel (foil resists the ink) and die cut out with the matching die.  Assembled the card onto a white card base then added clear shimmer to the yellow centers to finish. 

Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

Hello Butterfly Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone! I am enjoying this release so much with the mixture of foil plates and flowers.  So many beautiful cards to create.  The Stella Butterfly and Background die set and Black Glossy paper makes a stunning focal image to the flower and leaves dies.


Exquisite Leaves:

Use the Exquisite Leaves plate to hot foil aqua green on the dark Fresh Aqua paper.  I chose the last, greener paper. Die cut using the matching die.  Make 3 die cuts.


Die cut the 2 smallest flowers from the Bouquet Blooms and Leaves from the darkest blue from the Ocean Blue paper pad.  Die cut 3 times.

Stella Butterfly and Background:

Die cut the top die and center of the butterfly from Black Glossy paper.  Die cut the background from heavy white card stock.  Ink blend from center out with VersaFine Clair Cheerful, Warm Breeze from center to end, then Paradise from ends to just before the center.  Ink up the edge of the die cut with Paradise.  Glue the top die cut on tope then glue the center in the middle.  Use your fingers to round the end wings downwards. Then press up the wings while pressing down on the center.  



Die cut the outline Hello Daily Script from Black Glossy paper.  Die cut the background from the same Fresh Aqua paper.  Adhere together.


Adhere a A2 size paper matching paper from the Madras Plaid Blu and Violet paper paid to a white A2 card.  Trim the Black Glossy paper to 4" x 51/4" and die cut out the center using 4the smallest die from Open Studios Oval Layers die set.  Adhere vellum to the back of the cut out.  Adhere the paper to to the center of the card.  Arrange and adhere the leaves on the left hand side around the oval cut out, leaving some of the leaves off the card.  Trim off the leaves.  Adhere the Hello sentiment to the upper right side of the oval cut out.  Adhere the butterfly to the lower right side, making sure the wings over lap the sentiment and leaves. Add the flowers to the center of the leaves.  Add the gold Fairy Gems and Fairy Jewels to the center of the flowers.

Butterfly Birthday Shaker
by Trina Pham


Hello there!  It’s been a while since I last posted, I almost forgot how.  😂*lol*   Anyway, I have a fun and simple birthday shaker card to share today featuring the Butterfly Coterie Collage and Posh Birthday Wishes dies from the May 2022 release.

Started by trimming two A2 size panels from Bristol paper.  Took one of them and die cut from it twice with the butterfly die to stretch the butterflies across from corner to corner.  The Posh Birthday Wishes foil plate was then hot foiled in black using the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System, and die cut out with the matching die.


On the other panel, ink blended Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron distress inks before prepping it for an infinity shaker to go behind the butterfly panel.  To minimize bulk. the small clear Fairy Drops were separated out and used for the shaker bits.  Assembled the card onto a white card base to finish,  


That does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today,  Have a wonderful day.

Hello with Foiling & Mirror Cardstock
by Angie Cimbalo


Hello and welcome! It's Angie here today with this shiny fun "hello" card.

I've used some new and older products, all from Memory Box.

Newly released items used:
94658 "Hello Daily Script"
MBF009 "Sunburst Hot Foil"

Other items:
GEM102 "Winter Fantasy Fairy Gem Stones"
30036 "Stitched Circle Layer Dies"
FP1002 "Vintage Pastel Mirror Paper Pad"
94621 "Pinpoint Daisy Background Die"
JWL005 "Christmas Fairy Jewels"

Here's another look at my card:


I used Gemini "Aurora" foil with the "Sunburst Hot Foil Die" on black card stock and then cut it our with a circle die. I cut a mat for it with the next larger die from silver mirror card stock. Next I cut the "hello" word die from black, silver, and peach mirror card stock, and the bigger shadow outline "hello" die from the black circle.

I pieced the "hello" parts to together, even inserting the little black foiled pieced around the "h" and the "o" so you can see the whole foiled sunburst. Next I took an A2 size piece of card stock and used the "Pinpoint Daisy Die" to get a fun dotted background for my card.

I added the circle element in the bottom right corner, cut the excess off and put left over pieces on the top and left side of the card. To finish my card I added large and small jewels to the ends of the rays in the foiled sunburst pattern with the sentiment in it.

Here's one last look:


I hope you like my card for today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thank You with Sunshine Daisy Stems
by Angie Cimbalo


Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with this fun thank you card made with newly released dies and hot foil dies.  Here's a close up look at my card:
   To make my card I smooshed purple and pink Distress Inks and water onto watercolor card then trimmed the panel to A2 size.  I added a strip of washi tape to the left side and then more to a piece of vellum to use to cut the flowers from.  I added a thin black strip of card stock next to the washi tape and then cut the new "Sunshine Daisy Stems" from black card and from the washi tape /vellum combo.  I layered the black outline flower on top of the floral washi tape/vellum combo and then cut off the vellum stems and just left the black ones .  I added the flowers to the watercolor panel and then I used the new "Posh Thank You" hot foil plate with some Gemini "Aurora" foil on black card to made the sentiment.  After adhering the whole watercolor panel to the card base, I added a few pastel jewels to the front of the card and added the whole panel to an A2 card base.
Here's one last look at my card:
I hope you enjoyed my card for today!  I had so much fun creating it!  Be sure to check out the whole new release from Memory Box, it's got so many beautiful items in it!  
Thanks for stopping by!

Heartfelt Hot Foil Posh Hugs by Jean Okimoto


Send a floral heartfelt hugs card to someone who would appreciate a bit of encouragement and support.  Hi, happy weekend - Jean Okimoto here with another great new poppy die set from our May Collection.  It's Graceful Poppy Stems - a set of two dies that cut 6 designs.

Cut Graceful Poppy Stems from a dark red-pink sheet in the Berry Red Collection.  Color the stems with a black marker.  Cut the centers from the yellow glitter sheet in the Graceful Garden Glitter Pad.


Assemble the poppies - use foam tape between the layers of the smaller blossom.

Cut a pink Berry Red Collection sheet with the 2 largest Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Out.  This creates a medium-sized heart surrounded by stitching inside the large heart.

Use the new Posh Hugs Hot Foil Plate to apply the greeting to black cardstock.  Diecut it with the coordinating die.

Attach the diecuts to a side-folded A2 card of Kraft Woodgrain Paper (it's cardstock).  The earthy brown color keeps the card from looking like a Valentine and lets it work throughout the year.


Add gold Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut an A2-sized rectangle of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

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

Hello Daisy Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I have a greeting card to brighten up anyone's day.  It has been cool and rainy in the northwest and needed to create a bright warm card.  It's a good design to send to someone to say Hello and brighten their day. 



Cur a white card base to 5 1/4"x  3 1/2.  Mask the left side 1/4" with Washi tape add a mask to create a 3/4" opening with wide Washi tape.  Tare the wide Washi to create a ragged edge.  Ink blend with VersaFine Clair Cheerful, Tulip Red, and Verdant.  Let dry and and wipe off the ink from the Washi  tape.  center the Butterfly Coterie Collage Stencil over the ink.  Spread Distress Crackle Texture Paste over the stencil to create glitter butterflies.


Die cut the Happy Daisy Stem and Sunshine Daisy Stem craft dies from light, medium and dark oranges from the Sunny Orange paper pad.  Die cut the stems from a medium green from the Lush Green paper pad.  Die cut the flower center from a mid-tone brown from the Earth Neutral paper pad.  Adhere the flower layers to the Shem and then add the flower center.  Adhere he flowers to the center of the background.  



Hot foil the Posh Hello with gold foil on a dark orange from the Sunny Orange paper pad.  Then die cut with the matching cutting die.  


Create a white A2 card.  Adhere a 4'x5 1/2" card base from the same orange as the sentiment to the A2 card, leaving a 1/4" strip of white on the side.  Adhere a 1/4" strip of gold card stock from the Vintage Pastel Mirror paper pad over the white card.  Adhere the background to the left side of the card.  Adhere the sentiment with the foam tape over the bottom of the flower stems.  Adhere some Autumn Fairy Crystals and golden yellow Pastel Fairy Jewels around the flower and butterflies.
