Spring Daisy and Butterfly Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I have a spring card featuring the new Plumed Gypsy Butterfly and Scribble Daisy dies.

0CA54ACE-A634-46CA-A9FA-B4443C26E124_1_201_a

Flower and butterfly:

Die cut the Scribbled Daisy and Plumed Gypsy Butterfly from heavy weight card stock, twice, and then once from gold mirror paper from Vintage Pastel Mirror pad.  For the daisy, keep one of the die cuts together by adding washing tape to the back and placing the pieces back in.  Color the Daisy petals with alcohol markers.  I used Copics in a light yellow, medium yellow to a orange/yellow.  Don't worry about coloring the outline die cut.  repeat on the leaves.  I used Copic light green, medium green, and dark green.  For the Butterfly color in the solid die cut with the same colors randomly adding and blending.  Glue the white outline die cut on top and then add a 3rd layer with the gold.  I changed my mind on my design and why I have 3 layers of outlines stack on top.  You can select to only use 2 layers.

0B44DF65-ECA3-45C7-BB68-A47D6F07F7BA

Frame and Sentiment: 

Gold hot foil emboss the 2nd largest Rectangle Double Boarder plate on white card stock.  Die cut out with the 2nd and 3rd largest die from the the A2 Rectangle Frame Die Set.  Die cut the purple and yellow pad paper from the Spring Plaid pad using the 2nd largest die from the the A2 Rectangle Frame Die Set.  Add foam tape to the back of the  frame.  Die cut the Hello Rush Script die from gold mirror paper from Vintage Pastel Mirror pad.  

Assembly:

Adhere the daisy to the plaid background panel, to the left side having some of the leaves under the boarder.  Adhere the frame on the background.  Adhere to a top folding A2 heavy weight card.  Adhere the butterfly to the upper right hand corner using foam tape.  Adhere the sentiment in the lower right hand corner.

Plumed Gypsy Butterfly
by Trina Pham

D72078EC-F19C-4672-AA57-2E769A341AAB

Hello everyone.  With spring a couple days away in the northern hemisphere, I have a spring card to share using products from the 2023 February collection.

Took the Rectangle Double Border hot foil plate and hot foiled a piece of Bristol paper with Silver Holographic Speckle hot foil using the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System.  Trimmed the piece to 4”x5.25”, then die cut the center out with a rectangle die from Rectangle Basics.  The new A2 Rectangle Frames set co-ordinates with this hot foil plate set and makes a nice tight cut to the foiled border lines, but I wanted more space from the foiled lines.  Next, the Plumed Gypsy Butterfly was die cut from Bristol paper and the back pieces were inked with Shaded Lilac distress ink (DI).  The top detailed layer was die cut twice to stack for dimension.

A26F6416-1C0B-4CCC-B8CB-0E8D0EF30EE3

The Floral Bud and Stems were die cut from alcohol marker friendly cardstock and coloured with Copic Sketch markers.  The background piece showing through the frame is also Bristol paper ink blended with Salvaged Patina DI. The Hello Rush Script sentiment was die cut twice from thick white paper and once from silver foil paper and stacked.  

F5CAC05F-8684-4C79-B414-9B17C04FD1BE

Assembled the card onto a white card base, popping the frame up with foam adhesive, to finish.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Hugs and Kisses
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_3779 (1)

Hello everyone!  I have another Valentine's Day card for you featuring products from the 2023 Valentine's Day release.

IMG_3782 (1)

I did a faux letterpress technique using the Blissful Heart Hot Foil die.  This is a good example of using dies other than what they were intended for.

To do this technique I used a brayer to apply Red Archival ink to the die and placed a piece of watercolor paper on top of the die.  Next, I ran this through my die cutting machine following the instructions for embossing.

 

IMG_3756 (1)

I used one of the hearts from the Double Stitch Loving Heart die set to die cut the letterpress heart.  

I die cut the Pinpoint Leaf Plate on a white cardstock panel and adhered it to a red cardstock mat.  This was glued to a white note card.

To create the strip behind the heart, I applied double stick to a white cardstock strip of paper and glued strips of cardstock to it.  This is a great way to use scraps of cardstock.  I glued this to the center of the card and used foam tape to adhere the letterpress heart to the card.

Next, I white heat embossed the words Hugs and Kisses to a strip of black cardstock and used foam tape to adhere it to the center of the heart.

To finish the card I added some Clear Fairy Drops and that's it!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Purple Valentines Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I have a Valentines card featuring the Blissful Heart hot foil plate and Luxe Peony die set.

C78ACB85-4705-4A5F-9CE9-2AAE48BD9052_1_201_a

I started off using the Memory Box watercolor paper and die cut the Luxe Peony petals.  Using deep purples and white watercolors to add color to each petal and heat set dried.  Use your fingers to curve the petals.  Splatter with some gold watercolor paint and let dry.  I used foam tape to prop up some of the petals and glue to adhere the center of the petal bases together.  

7E3A5E7D-4999-482A-9581-BDF2C5EEA10A

Hot foil the Glossy Black paper with gold foil and the Blissful Heart Foil Plate.  I had to use the metal cut shim on my foil plate to get it to adhere properly.  I die cut the heart using the largest die from eh Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die set.

FE885448-32B4-4E1B-B83B-0EAC0C3A000D

Loving You Post Script die was the best fit for the composition.  I used a medium hue from Twilight Purple pad to die cut the base and gold mirror from Vintage Pastel Mirror paper for the top.  Adhere together with glue.

2A526CA8-F979-4942-AB9A-0866A452CC6F_1_201_a

Use an A2 card base.  I added a A2 panel of Glossy Black paper to the front.  Then adhered a 1/4" smaller panel of a lighter hue from the Twilight Purple pad.  I also splattered some of the same gold watercolor on the panel and heat set.  Adhere the hot foil heart cutout to the upper center of the card.  Add the sentiment to the lower right hand side of the heart.  In the center of the heart add the peony flower, using foam squares to the petals to give dimension.  Add a few clear Fairy Drops to finish the card.

Double-Emboss the Blissful Heart by Jean Okimoto

The new Blissful Heart Hot Foil Plate is a hardworking multi-tasker that's also perfect for embossing the beautiful botanical design.  It's double-embossed here - pressure-embossed, then heat-embossed to highlight the delicate details.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a slimline Valentine design for you.

Cut the smoother side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper with the largest Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out.  Lightly spritz both sides of the heart 4 times - from about 12" away.  Let the paper absorb the water for about 30 seconds then place the smoother side of the heart onto the Blissful Heart Foil Plate and pressure-emboss it. Use the rubber embossing mat and plates required for your machine.  

Place the embossed heart on a smooth, hard surface and use a brayer or the direct-to-paper technique to ink the entire design with picked raspberry Distress Oxides.  Quickly heat-emboss it with Imagine's Iridescent Embossing Powder for a sparkly, glittery, glossy look.

Use a blending brush or sponge dauber to ink the edges of the heart with picked raspberry.  Sprinkle the embossing powder along the edges and heat-emboss it.

Cut the "love" portion of the Sending Love Daily Script from dark gray and bright pink cardstock - save the little pieces in the "ove."  Attach the greeting to the Blissful Heart with a liquid adhesive - I used the original Tacky Glue.

Cut bright pink cardstock with the 1-⅛" x 6-¼" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die. Cut two strips of the silver 6x6 in the Delicate Pastel Mirror Pad with the smallest slim rectangle die.

Attach the diecuts to a card of Creme Woodgrain cardstock (3-⅝" x 8-½") - use foamdots for the heart.  Add the lightest Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones.  Cut a slimline-sized rectangle of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting - see you again on Sunday...

Blissful Heart Hot Foil Plate - Positive & Negative
by Angie Cimbalo



Hello, it's Angie here today with 2 fun cards for Valentine's Day using hot foiling!  It's quite early to be working on these but I need to work ahead as February is one of my busiest months helping out at school music programs!  

 
For the first card I used the new "Blissful Heart" hot foil plate just released this year with some gold foil on light pink glitter paper from the "Pastel Glitter" paper pad.  I love the way it turned out, and the fun part was being able to use the negative left over piece on my second card that you will see below.

For this first card I also cut the foiled heart with the "Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out" (94359) largest die in the set.  I added the heart to the white card base and then added the sentiment "Sending Love Daily Script" 94661.  I used gold mirror cardsoick from the "Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad" (FP1003) for the outline on top of white card stock.  Here's a real close up look at the heart details: 


 
I really love how this card turned out, it's clean and simple but has lots of intricate detail on the heart.
Here's one last look:

 
Now let's look at what I did with the left over "negative" piece of hot foil I had:

 
The leftover piece was so pretty, I decided to use it in a 2nd card by attaching it to a piece of vellum, then covering it with the leftover glitter card panel that I'd cut the pink heart from.  Below you can see I turned the thin piece of leftover hot foil over, and added double sided adhesive to it so I could stick the vellum to it.  This way when you look through the gold foil openings, you will see a soft glow of the vellum.
 
It looks horribly messy but the messy parts will be covered by the large light pink glitter panel.


 
Now below you can see I turned it over and the adhesive I'd added stuck right down on the vellum square I'd cut.  Again it looks really bad, you can even see a strip of missing gold where a piece of double sided tape with a mind of it's own, stuck to my finger and ripped all the gold off!  It doesn't matter as long as the heart portion looks good, because you will cover all the ugly part with the glitter panel.




So now, I added the glitter panel (with the heart opening - I used that heart for the first card!) As you can see, all the ugly parts are hidden and all you see is that beautiful design of gold and vellum inside the heart opening!  It is all placed on a white card base.



I used the same sentiment die, gold on top of white card and put it right on the heart.  Here's one last look at my second card:

 
I love it when you can make two cards like this by using the leftovers from one card!  I hope you will take a look at all the wonderful Valentine's Day products available from Memory Box HERE!
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Love You Blissful Heart
by Trina Pham

624652A4-5F66-4639-A5DE-0E4B818A5632

Hello there.  Today I am stretching the new Blissful Heart hot foil plate from the 2023 Valentine’s release to create a monochromatic Valentine’s/love card. 

Started by die cutting with the Scallop Pinpoint Loving Heart die from an A2 size (4.25”x5.5”) Berry Red paper panel.  Took that heart cutout and spritz each side twice with water before dry embossing it with the Blissful Heart hot foil plate through my die cutting machine following the machine’s recommendation.

5A2434D5-DB50-4984-8028-530F57B447A7

Hot foil plates are thicker than regular craft dies, so when dry embossed, it gives a deeper impression.  Next, ink blended Lumberjack Plaid distress ink to the raised areas to help the images show better.  Also added ink to the outside of the A2 panel.  Adhered the A2 panel onto a white card base to inlay the embossed heart back.  But due to the heart shrinking a bit from being dry embossed, another red heart was die cut out and inlaid into the space first.  Mounted the embossed heart on top.

36B7BB89-454C-4C21-9079-2B30CF662EC0

The Love You Posh Script sentiment was then die cut three times from Bristol paper and stacked for dimension.  For some shine and even more dimension, covered it with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder for a total of three times.  Added red Bright Jewels for a bit of sparkle to finish.

9F4048B4-7451-4CA9-8703-A1E58B972DC6

This turned out differently (a lot redder) than what I pictured in my head. 😂   Oh well… that does it for me.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

Oceans of Happiness
by Trina Pham

BFDEF4EC-52A9-4958-8817-8A7A7272FD6F

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.  

20725935-9984-421F-BDE1-BE8BE11E67B4

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.

D4394920-73AF-4F66-A495-B2B4D16D1193

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