Drifting Feathers by Jean Okimoto

A trio of the feathers - simply stenciled - creates a glittery friendship card for a winter day.  Hi, Jean here with a simple design using DIY Plumed Gypsy Feather stencils cut from heavyweight vellum for easier placement and crisp stenciled edges.

Prep the small Plumed Gypsy Feather by rubbing it briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help remove the tiny offcuts.  Cut the feather stencil three times from heavyweight vellum.  Cut white cardstock with the medium-sized Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles die.  Stencil the feathers with Distress Oxides - salvaged patina, iced spruce and kitsch flamingo.  

Cut the feathers again from the pale blue Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad sheet and the silver Majestic Hues Glitter Pad sheet.  The pink-stenciled feather doesn't have a glittered layer - that's part of the "missing" theme.  (The Delicate Pastels Glitter Pad has a matching pink sheet if you want 3 glittered feathers.)

Glue 2 pieces of white cardstock together for dimension,  then cut the background of the Miss You Posh Script.  Pressure-emboss it with the detailed top layer of the greeting. Cut the detailed top layer of the greeting from the pale aqua sheet in the  Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad - leave the tiny dot for the "i" in the die (or on the cutting plate) till you're ready to attach it because it tends to disappear.  Embossing the background creates a debossed area to easily align and attach the top layer.

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½") - use foamtape for the greeting.  Add the pale pinkish-violet Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones.  Cut a slimline-sized rectangle of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Pretty Colors in the Tool Box by Jean Okimoto

Fuchsia, Pumpkin and Teal in the toolbox?  Yes, when they brighten a gal's slimline thank you with a happy Whittle Beaver!  Hi, Jean here with mix of old, new, blue, Memory Box and Poppystamps. I like a lot of open space on my cards - but these great design elements wanted to be together, filling the entire card. 

The new Toolbox 3D Embossing Folder & Matching Dies and the Woodgrain Fence Pickets are from our '23 Spring Collection.  Cut the pickets from light kraft cardstock.  Cut the tools from the silver Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad 6x6.  Place them in the matching 3D Embossing Folder and add the details and dimension (one tool at a time is easiest!) using the plate(s) required for your machine.  

MemoryBox3DEmbossingFolderAndMatchingDies, MemoryBoxWoodgrainFencePickets, MemoryBoxWoodenAlpha, MemoryBoxWoodGrainPlanks, MemoryBoxRectangleBasicsSet, MemoryBoxRainbowReflectionsMirrorPad, Poppystamps, PoppystampsWhittleBeaver, PoppystampsWhittles, PoppystampsWildAnimalSentiments, JeanOkimoto, MemoryBoxCo, Diecutting, SlimlineCards, DiecutTools, WoodgrainDiecuts, DiecutThankYous, DiecutAnimals, ToolCards, StazOn, ImpressCardsAndCrafts

Mask the "metal" areas of each tool and sponge or daub the handles with StazOn Inks.  Airdry the first layer of ink, then repeat.  Colors used here are Pumpkin, Teal Blue and Fuchsia Pink.  Set them aside to dry completely.

Cut Wood Grain Planks from light kraft cardstock - we're just using a few of them here.

Cut the question mark - from the Wooden Alpha set - from light kraft cardstock too.

Cut the Poppystamps Whittle Beaver from dark kraft cardstock.  Lightly ink the edges and paws with Pearlescent Chocolate Brilliance ink.  Attach the fuchsia screwdriver between his paws.

Stamp the greeting - from the Poppystamps Whittle Wild Animal Sentiments - with Pinecone VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink and trim the greeting with the second-smallest Rectangle Basics die.

Attach everything to a light aqua slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½") - use foamtape for the question mark and the beaver.

Make this card using different colors and greetings for your favorite DIY/fix-it/build-it gal or guy.  A toolbox card would be great for someone who just completed (survived?) a home renovation project too. The Woodgrain Fence Pickets can also diecut a great stencil for birthday candles...just some extra ideas!

Special thanks to everyone ordering my new kit - BLOSSOMS & BUNNIES - from Impress! They sold out quickly, I'm making more.

Thanks for visiting - see you on Friday...

Dazzling Seashells Collection by Jean Okimoto

MemoryBoxDazzlingSeashells3DEmbossingFolderAndCuttingDies, MemoryBoxRingStack, MemoryBoxSlimBasicRectangleLayers, MemoryBoxChristmasFairyCrystals, MemoryBoxRainbowReflectionsMirrorPad, JeanOkimoto, SlimlineCards, Diecutting, DiecutShells, DiecutBorders, DistressOxides, EmbossingFolders, 3DEmbossingFolders, ShellCards, Cardmaking, HandmadeCards, ImpressCardsAndCrafts

Pearly, pastel Dazzling Seashells are great for any occasion...and ready for a shell-ebration!  This beautifully-textured collection of 7 designs is from the Dazzling Seashells 3D Embossing Folder and Cutting Dies set.  Hi, Jean here - it's cloudy and in the 30's outside, a perfect day to stay inside and create cards with a warm, tropical theme.

Blend twisted citron, worn lipstick, kitsch flamiongo and cracked pistachio Distress Oxides on smooth, heavy white cardstock.  Trim it to fit in the Dazzling Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.  Lightly spritz both sides of the cardstock to prep it for embossing.  Place the inked side against the debossed (sunken) side of the folder.  Pressure-emboss it using the plates(s) required for your machine.

Place the embossed cardstock on a hard, flat surface and apply a layer of Pearlescent Jade Brilliance using a hard rubber brayer.  Dry the ink.  Cut the shells with the coordinating dies.

Prep Ring Stack by rubbing it briskly with scrunched waxed paper to make it easier to remove the delicate diecut.  Cut Ring Stack from the gold Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad sheet.  Cut two more of the end ovals again to lengthen the diecut - hide the overlapped extension under the second shell from the left.

Cut white cardstock with the 7-¼" x 2-¼" Slim Basic Rectangles die.  Attach the Ring Stack diecuts to the rectangle - use tiny dots of glue just where the ovals are joined.  Attach the shells.

Stamp the greeting - from the Deep Blue Ocean Clear Stamp and Die Set - with Pearlescent Jade Brilliance.  Dry the ink and cut the greeting lengthwise with the second-smallest Slim Basic Rectangles Die.  Trim the short ends.  

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-⅝") - use foamdots for the greeting.  Add aqua Christmas Fairy Jewels.  Cut a slimline-sized rectangle of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Dazzling Seashells would be beautiful cut from Rainbow Reflections or Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad 6x6 sheets too.  Their pearly shimmer will enhance the detailed textures of each shell.

Thanks for visiting...have a great weekend!

Collage Die Encouragement Card
by Angie Cimbalo

Collage 1

Hello it's Angie here today with a encouragement card featuring the new stackable collage dies released in February.  My card features these collage dies:

94628 Distant Sun Collage
94627 Cloudy Moon Collage
94626 Cloudy Sun Collage
 
I inked the edges around the clouds and after putting them together added them to a piece of mirror card stock.
 
The sentiment is from Cl5276 Friends and Family stamp set and mirror paper for the mat is from the FP1103 Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.  I also used the new 94672 A2 Rectangle Frames dies to cut all the rectangles for my card.
 
The background night sky was made with alcohol inks, including some gold metallic alcohol ink.  The sentiment from the stamp set was heat embossed on the front panel of the card.  Here's a closer look:
 
Collage close
 
Memory Box has lots of Collage dies like these that are really fun to put together, but you can also use them separately which makes them very versatile.  
 
I hope you like my card for today!  Be sure to come back often to see all the inspiration on the blog from the team!  
Thanks so much for stopping by!

The new Gentle Rose Watercolor Floral appears to have many tiny layers.  They are actually just four detail pieces - easily layered over the background that's gently marked with guidelines for the detail pieces.  They're lightly marked so you can rearrange the layers if you prefer - and no one will know!  Hi, Jean here with another beautiful, layering floral set from our Spring Collection.

Paint heavy white cardstock with two shades of peachy-pink inks or watercolors.  Dry it, then spray the darker section with a light mist of Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz.  Dry the ink, then diecut it with the Gentle Rose Watercolor Floral set.  Assemble the rose.

Cut Wayfarer Leaves from light green cardstock.

Prep Thistle Stems by rubbing it briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help remove the delicate pieces.  Cut it from the light gold 6x6 in the Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad.

Add splatters of the Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz to white cardstock.  Dry the ink, then cut it with the 2" x 7" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.

Attach the Gentle Rose, Thistle Stems and Wayfarer Leaves to the rectangle - use foam dots for the center and right edge of the rose.

Attach the rectangle to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½").  Add the peachy pink Pastel Jewels.  

Roses are always a classic design element for celebrations, thank-yous and friendship cards.  Adding Wayfarer Leaves and Thistle Stems to your collection makes it even easier to create garden greetings for any occasion.

We're working on the links for the Wayfarer Leaves and Thistle Stems.  View the entire Spring Collection here.

Colorful butterflies flutter through a trio of collaged windows on a slimline thank you card.  The new collages - Distant Sun, Cloudy Moon and Cloudy Sun - create a layered, dimensional backdrop for the Intricate Mini Butterflies.  Hi, Jean here with more great dies from our Spring '23 Collection.

Score white cardstock horizontally at 3-⅝" and 7-¼".  Cut Cloudy Sun Collage from the front of the 3-⅝" panel. Cut Cloudy Moon Collage from the backside of the second panel.  Cut Distant Sun Collage from the front of the third panel.

Cut blue cardstock with the 3-⅝" x 8-⅝" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  Attach the rectangle behind the Distant Sun Collage panel - align the left edges.  Trim the right edge.  Trim the top and bottom edges of the tri-folded card.

Prep the Intricate Mini Butterflies die by rubbing it briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help release the detailed diecuts.  Blend yellow, chartreuse, green, teal and blue inks on smooth white cardstock.  Dry the inks, then cut it with the Intricate Mini Butterflies die.  I cut two sets of the butterflies so I could select the sizes and colors  I wanted for the card.

The butterflies are just glued at the center, allowing the wings to lift at the edges.  Attach the 3 smallest butterflies to the blue area within the Distant Sun Collage.  Attach the 4th butterfly partially over the bottom edge of the Cloudy Moon Collage.  Attach the remaining 3 butterflies to the card front.

Cut Tilted Thanks from the turquoise sheet in the Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.  Attach the greeting to the card and add turquoise Pastel Jewels

Tri-fold collage cards are fun to create - and receive!  Substitute birds or dragonflies instead of butterflies for a totally different look.  Or maybe a plush brown felt Layered Polar Bear holding a bunch of balloons just barely floating over the window collages?

The new swirly, curly, spiraled Curlicue Plate is quickly becoming a Design Team favorite.  It's great alone as a bold background - or highlight it with the new Plumed Gypsy Butterfly or Plumed Gypsy Feather.  Hi, Jean here with another butterfly card that just couldn't wait for warm and sunny butterfly-weather.

Stamp the greeting - from the Sweet Christmas Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock with Brilliance Pearlescent Purple.

Attach the greeting and diecuts to the card - use foam tape for the butterfly, and leave the outer edges unglued.  Add pale pink Pastel Fairy Jewels.

The Curlicue Plate is great for pressure-embossing and paper-piecing too!  Save a few of the offcuts if you're cutting it from colored or metallic cardstock. They create great design elements - especially the 3 main circular pieces.  We save everything, don't we?

Brighten a gray winter day with a fresh pink blossom and big hugs from our new Spring Collection.  We're discovering countless ways to mix, match and layer the great design elements from our latest release.  Hi, Jean here with a simple idea that's easy to create in your favorite colors - or the recipient's favs.

The new Curved Cap Pinpoint Layers set is great for backgrounds, frames or tags.  Tape the three smallest dies together and cut an ink-blended or watercolored, gold-spritzed background.  Leave the diecuts in the dies and attach doublestick tape to the backsides of the intact diecuts to save time. Remove them from the dies together and attach them to a top-folded white A2 card.

Cut dark gray stems with the new Floral Bud and Stems set.  Cut the petals from the sweet pink Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad 6x6.  Attach the diecuts to the background - use foam dots for the 3-petal piece.

Tape or glue two layers of white cardstock together and diecut the solid Hugs Tender Script background.  Pressure-emboss it with the overlay to deboss the background and make it easy to attach the gold layer.  Cut the overlay from the gold Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad 6x6.  Attach it to the background.

Add pale gold Pastel Fairy Jewels for extra sparkle.

Luxe Peony For You
by Trina Pham

2E6A7579-0F41-4495-9D0E-5E593280AE0C

Hello everyone.  I have an all-occasion card today featuring the Luxe Peony and For You Posh Script dies from the 2023 Valentine’s collection.

The peony was die cut three times from white cardstock.  Using a finger brush, ink blended Victorian Velvet distress ink to each piece before layering / gluing them together.  For some sparkle, spritz them with a shimmer spray.  The leaves were die cut from alcohol marker friendly cardstock then colored with Copic Sketch markers YG61, YG63 and YG61.

42637380-5AEB-4C9C-8D7A-97607E82416C

The sentiment was die cut once from gold mirror paper and twice from thick white paper, then stacked onto its white shadow piece.  On a white A2 size panel, splattered with diluted black gouache paint for a bit of texture.  Assembled the card onto a white card base, popping up the middle peony with foam squares.  Added a few clear Fairy Drops to finish  

98D2ED8D-9CC0-4E9E-97F3-18FC7DE12A55

That’s it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful week.
