Large detailed dies are versatile, practical and great for creating custom-sized diecuts for your projects.  Use the Basic series of dies - Square, Rectangle, Circle or Slim Rectangles - to trim large designs or spotlight specific portions of the design.

Examples - Pinpoint Burst Plate is a full A2-sized die that's perfect for trimming into with the Rectangle Basics dies.  The new Pinpoint Burst Heart can be trimmed with the Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Out dies shown here - or with Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out dies.

Cut white cardstock with the 3-¾" x 5" Rectangle Basics die.  Place the rectangle exactly where you want it on the Pinpoint Burst Plate (the diecut piece will be a reverse-image) and cut it.

Cut white cardstock with the largest Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Out die - save both the diecut and the offcut - they'll be the background for the pink heart.

Cut a dark pink 6x6 from the Berry Red Collection with the second-largest Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Out die. Place the heart on the Pinpoint Burst Heart and cut it to add the details.

Cut the smallest heart from a medium pink sheet in the Graceful Garden Glitter Pad.

Cut the overlay of the Hugs Daily Script from the glittered sheet too.  Cut two white backgrounds of the Hugs Daily Script.  Glue them together for dimension, then pressure-emboss them with the overlay die.  Pressure-embossing the background makes it easy to attach the top layer - just glue it into the debossed sections.

Attach the diecuts to a white A6 card (6-¼" x 4-½").  Attach the pale pink-ish Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones.  Cut an A6-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Love You on Valentine's Day
by Angie Cimbalo

Hello and welcome!  It's Angie here today with another Valentine card to inspire you using brand new and previously released dies together.  Here's a closer look at my card:
 

The background was made with the Memory Box Pinpoint Leaf Plate dies 94381 on white card.  The heart was cut with the brand new Pinpoint Burst Heart Die 94639 topped with the sentiment die Love You Gallery Script Die 94636.  The hearts for the sentiment were cut from the Delicate Pastel Glitter paper pad.  Here's a closer look at the hearts.

 
The floral pieces cut with the Luxe Peony Dies set 94714 from different shade of grays using the Earth Tones 6X6 paper pad.
Here's one last look at my card:



I just love all the pinpoint dots on this card combined with the pink glitter hearts!

Remember vellum?  Transform the beautiful Luxe Peony into a delicate camellia with layers of sweet pink vellum.  The shadowy overlapped petals create depth and dimension and a soft background for the glittery yellow centers  from the Layered Fresh Flowers die set. Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a floral slimline that could be a Valentine - or a thinking-of-you card for someone deserves a hug.

Cut two sets of Luxe Peony from pink vellum.  Layer the diecuts to build three blossoms - you'll have a few extra pieces.  Use short bits of doublestick tape near the center of the flower to attach the layers.    They'll be hidden by the centers of the flowers.Cut the two centers - from the Layered Fresh Flowers set - from a yellow 6x6 in the Graceful Garden Glitter Pad.  Cut the small round piece in half.  Attach the centers.  Lightly curl several petals using the side of a bone folder or the plastic flower burnishing tool.

Cut two sets of  leaves - from the the Luxe Peony set - from a green 6x6 in the Lush Green Collection.

Cut Pinpoint Burst Heart from white cardstock

Cut two white solid backgrounds from Big Hugs Posh Script.  Pressure-emboss one of them  with the delicate Big Hugs die using the rubber embossing mat and plate(s) required for your machine.The embossed greeting makes it easy to attach the pink glittered layer.    Cut a pink 6x6 from the Delicate Pastels Glitter Pad with the delicate Big Hugs die.

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.

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.

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.

Lovebirds
by Trina Pham

B649D58C-0A2E-469B-B98E-A18A347D3D85

Hello everyone.  I have a tweet 😉 CAS (clean and simple) card to share today using a few new products from the new 2023 Valentine’s release along with some previously released ones.  

The background was from my stash and it was dry embossed with the Pinpoint Burst Plate die.  The new Pinpoint Burst Heart was die cut from Bristol paper and from thick white paper to stack for dimension.  The back layer of the Layered Birds was die cut from Vibrant Violet paper while the top layer was die cut from white cardstock.  Colored the top layer by ink blending Picked Raspberry and Milled Lavender distress inks (DI).  The Woodland Branch was die cut from gray cardstock and shading added with a C4 Copic Sketch marker.  

E35672BE-05BD-402C-9756-0A24A2342B98

The small heart was die cut from the Delicate Pastel Glitter paper pack using the new Heart Ring Stack die.  The sentiment is Bristol paper die cut with the new Sending Love Daily Script die set.  Flipped the “n” upside down for the “u”.   To match the birds, ink blended Milled Lavender and Seedless Preserves DI on these letters, then heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder for more sparkle.  Assembled the card onto a white card base, then dotted the birds’ eyes with a black pen to finish.

Cut Pinpoint Burst Heart from a dark red 6x6 in the Berry Red Collection.  

Cut Cuppa Love from a dark pink sheet.  Cut the oval coffee/tea/cocoa shape from dark brown cardstock covered with packing tape for a glossy liquid look.  Cut the heart outine and center section from cream cardstock too.  

Remove the pink heart outline and center and replace them with the cream diecut.

Shake the Strawberry Ice Open Studio Glitter Glue vigorously - then spread it onto the pink heart diecut.  Set it aside to dry.

Diecut Sending Love Daily Script from cream and dark pink cardstock.  Assemble the greeting.  

Here's a tip for anything with very small pieces (like the i) - glue that elusive tiny dot first, before it disappears -  then attach the other letters.  

Cut a 1-¼" strip of the Madras Plaid Coral and Green 6x6.

Love You with Luxe Peony
by Angie Cimbalo

Main

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with this lovely "Love You" card featuring brand new products in the new Valentine's 2023 release. This is a great release with so many beautiful products!  Here's a closer look at my card:

Close

I used a previously released pinpoint die called "Pinpoint Leaf Plate" for the background and then added it to a card base. I cut the "Luxe Peony die" from several shades of gray card stock "Earth Neutral Paper Pack" and some pink glitter paper from the "Pastel Glitter Paper Pack." I pieced the the flower and leaves together and added them to the card front. Next I cut the "Love You Gallery Script" die from the darkest gray paper and the glitter paper and pieced them together. Lastly I added a few clear fairy dew drops to the front of the card. Here's one last look:

Create a Pinpoint Snowflake Ornament by Jean Okimoto

P1021147

Create unique ornaments with basic diecut shapes, pinpoint plates, and shimmery metallic 6x6 Mirror Pads.  The designs add texture and luster to simple shapes for cards and holiday decor.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with an easy way to add special details to your diecuts.

Cut the basic Frilling Snowflake Ornament from the pale blue Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad 6x6.  Here's a tip for selecting and cutting the perfect section of a large die...

P1021138

Cut a contrasting paper template with the basic background die.  Use the offcut to select a section of the Snowflake Plate to be transferred to the ornament.  (It'll be reveresed on the card.)  Place the ornament diecut face-down into the template and diecut the details onto the ornament.

Punch a hole and tie the ornament with gold cord.  Use the side of a bonefolder - or the plastic burnishing tool - to curl the cord.  Follow the curve of the cord for best results.

Diecut Joy Posh Script from a light lavender sheet in the Twilight Purple Collection - and from the violet Glitzy Glitter sheet.

Cut the turquoise Rainbow Reflections 6x6 and a darker lavender Twilight Purple 6x6 with the second-smallest  Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.

I used scrap of ink-blended Open Studio Watercolor Paper from my stash for the background.  It's sprayed with Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz, air-dried for a few minutes, then heat-set. Trim it to 1-⅞" x 3-¾".

P1021171 3

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½").  Add lavender Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut a slimline-sized rectangle of cardtock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting our blog - hope you'll try these techniques on your holiday cards!

Merry and Bright Mini Slimline
by Angie Cimbalo



Hello and welcome! It's Angie here today with this mini slimline holiday card featuring the new "Watercolor Poinsettia Floral die" with the previously released "Slimline Pinpoint Burst Plate" craft die 94557

 
After using the pinpoint die on white card, I took a red ink pad and put it directly onto the card stock and rubbed it all over - this made it look like it was red card stock with white pinpoint dots.  Here's a closer look at that part and of the actual poinsettia die.  It's a layering die with lots of pieces to help your flower look very realistic.  I used pink, yellow and green glitter paper from "Festive Glitter Pad" GP1006 and the  red "Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad" FP1003.



The strip under the sentiment is actually cut with one of the dies from "Wood Grain Planks" craft die 94565.   The sentiment "Merry and Bright" is from the newly released "Sweet Christmas" clear stamp set CL5283.  I heat embossed it on black card stock and then cut it into a square then rounded the corners.

Here's one last look at my card:

 
I hope you like my card for today!  Be sure to check out all the amazing dies, paper, and stamps from Memory Box!

Hello with Foiling & Mirror Cardstock
by Angie Cimbalo

1wm

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:

3wm

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:
