The new Sunshine Daisy Stems can create the look of patient paper-piecing or "coloring inside the lines."  This is a lot easier!   Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a vellum back-painting technique - instead of attaching many tiny petals or trying to stay inside the lines.  MemoryBoxSunshineDaisyStems, MemoryBoxAutumnFairyJewels, MemoryBoxRectangleBasics, MemoryBoxWatercolorPaper, MemoryBoxPoshHelloFoilPlateAndDie, FlowerDiecuts, HotFoiling, FoiledCards, HotFoilAndDiecut, HandmadeCards, DIYCards, VellumCards, InkBlendedBackgrounds, JeanOkimoto, ImpressCardsAndCrafts

Attach a large piece of doublestick tape to white cardstock - Couture Creations tape was used here.  The taped side is the backside and the cardstock is the front.  Cut the 'open' Sunshine Daisy Stems die (shown on the left) three times from the front.  Remove the offcuts and save just the delicate outlines.

Cut heavy white vellum with the 3-¾" x 2-½" Rectangle Basics die.  Attach the three cardstock Daisy Stems to the vellum - the double-stick tape makes it quick and easy. Press Distress Oxides onto an acrylic block and paint the petals from the backside of the vellum - don't add any water.   Ink colors used here are dried marigold, squeezed lemonade, abandoned coral and kitsch flamingo.

Blend abandoned coral, kitsch flamingo and squeezed lemonade Distress Oxides on the smoother side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  Spray it with a light spritz of water, then let it dry. Trim it with the 3-¼" x 2" Rectangle Basics die.

Attach narrow strips of double-stick tape to the backside of the several painted vellum petals  and attach the vellum to the watercolor paper.  The tape won't show through the painted petals.

Foil black cardstock with gold foil and the Posh Hello Hot Foil Plate.  Diecut it.

Attach the diecuts to a pink A-2 card.  Add the orange Autumn Fairy Jewels.  

Sunshine Daisy Stems is very versatile - diecut stencils or pressure-emboss with it too. Or simply diecut and layer the blossoms for spring or summer cards.

Thanks for visiting  - hope you're enjoying the May Collection ideas from our Design Team!

Happy weekend!  Hi - Jean Okimoto here, discovering more ways to combine the great new dies from our May Collection.  Ruffled Poppy Stem (on the left) and Sweet Poppy Stem complement each other on a simple slimline. A delicate hot-foiled diecut Posh Thank You balances the bright bold blossoms with classic gold and black.

Cut Ruffled Poppy Stem from a teal 6x6 in the Fresh Aqua Collection.  Cut Sweet Poppy Stem from a pinkish red 6x6 in the Berry Red Collection.  Cut the flower centers from Black Glossy Paper.  Assemble the poppies - add dimension with foamtape between the layers.  

Cut Kraft Woodgrain Paper with the 6-¾" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  Cut aqua and coral strips with the two smallest Slim Basic Rectangle Layers dies.  Diecutting simple layered accent strips creates smooth crisp edges and perfect proportions - without tedious measuring.

Foil and diecut Posh Thank You following the directions for your machine.  The classic greeting would be great with any of the floral or butterfly diecuts from the May Collection.

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½").  Add turquoise Christmas Fairy Dewdrops.  Cut a slimline-sized rectangle of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

The new Sweet Poppy Stem, Ruffled Poppy Stem and Graceful Poppy Stems are simple and elegant individually - or combined for more impact.  The stems will be great with other floral diecuts too - like the Ruffled Blooms and layered blossoms from earlier releases.  They'll be classic, versatile additions to your collection of Memory Box floral dies.  

Thanks for visiting - have a great weekend!

Lavender Field Birthday Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone!  I have a birthday card using the New Sunburst hot foil plate and Lavender Bouquet to create this beautiful field of lavender with golden sun.  I can imagine laying under the sun and taking a nap in the lavender field.  

9042DD1A-6B57-47E2-9FAA-84FE4F4B79B4_1_201_a

Sunburst:

Cut white card stock to 5"x5" square.  Position gold foil and Sunburst hot foil plate in the upper right hand corner of the paper.  Heat and run through your die cutting machine per their instruction.  I use Gemini Junior system and followed their instructions for foil plates and it turned out on the first run.  Ink blend Distress Broken China from the bottom left corner up over to the upper right hand corner.  Do not ink blend in the center of the sun. Ink blend the sun with Distress Squeezed Lemonade.  Ink blend the bottom left corner with Distress Twisted Citron keeping to the edges to create look of green steams.  

DBEFD90B-FC76-47F8-842E-982F4C270B6B

Lavender Field:

Die cut all the Lavender Bouquet dies from fun foam.  Add some double sided tape to stamp block and position the fun foam die cuts on the tape.  Ink up with Distress Dusty Concord on the flower and Lucky Clover on the stem.  Randomly stamp first through 3 generation on the ink blended background.  Having taller lavender in the left corer and shorter toward the right corner.  Die cut the Lavender Bouquet from a mid green Lush Green paper pad, 2 times.  Die cut just the flower of the Lavender Bouquet from a dark and medium purple from the Twilight Purple paper pad, 2 times.  Trim off any of the stem that is left and glue on the matching green die cuts.  Adhere on top of the stamped background randomly mixing the light and dark lavender flowers.  

68D725D3-680B-4DC6-9EF2-C0648A8B8536

Butterflies:

Heat foil the Intricate Mini Butterflies from the same gold foil and medium tone Twilight Purple paper. Only foil first then run through the die cut machine again for die cutting.  Use temporary tape to secure the foil and paper securely to the paper so the die does not move.  Form the wings with your fingers to pop them up.

B2E86EFF-DE7C-4B3A-AF46-007846676634

Sentiment:

Hot foil the Birthday Wishes plate with gold and the midtone Twilight Purple paper.  After foiling use the cutting die to die cut out the sentiment.  

Assembly:

Create a 6"x6" card base from white card stock.  Cut the same mid-tone Twilight Purple is the flowers and sentiment to 6"x6".  Cut a gold paper from the Vintage Pastel Mirror pad to 5 1/2"x5 1/2". Adhere the purchase on the card base, the gold paper, then the card base.  Adhere the butterflies, 2 in the lavender and 1 in the sky.  Adhere the sentiment with foam tape over the sun.

Hello
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_1624 (1)

Hello everyone!  I was so excited when I saw the foil plates and dies in the 2022 May release!

To make the card, I used the Sunburst Hot Foil Plate to add gold foil to white cardstock using a foiling machine.  Next, I used a blender brush to apply Distress Oxide inks to my foiled cardstock.  Because the foil is like a letterpress design that is debossed into the paper, the ink doesn't cover the foil. 

IMG_1621

I trimmed the cardstock and adhered it to a black cardstock mat, which I then glued to a white card base.

Using black cardstock, I die cut the Graceful Poppy Stems and the Sweet Poppy Stem and glued those to the card front. 

Next, I die cut the shadow from the Hello Daily Script die from white cardstock, and the word hello from black cardstock.  I glued the black hello word die to the shadow and adhered it to the card.

On a strip of black cardstock I white heat embossed the sentiment and adhered it to the card.

IMG_1625

To finish the card, I added some yellow sequins for some dimension.  

And that's it for today! Have a great day!
