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 Christmas Trio
by Trina Pham

9102579F-F114-489C-B762-16DA4EA1B3C4

Hello everyone.  Christmas is just a little over a month away!  With that said, I am sharing an easy way to create a set of CAS (clean and simple) Christmas cards using products from the 2022 Christmas collection.  

The process was the same for all three cards.  Started by ink smooshing a piece of mixed media paper with diluted Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet distress inks.  Die cut all images from this piece then added clear shimmer to them for some sparkle.  Die cut the images twice from thick white paper to stack for dimension.  Die cut the sentiment from Vintage Pastel Mirror paper and stacked on top of two white ones for dimension.  Assembled so onto white woodgrain paper to finish.  

DB0147A8-313D-4951-B63E-7FC5B2245D3F

On this first card and just like the large skates in my last post, the Classic Pair of Skates were laced with white baker’s twine.  The heels were die cut from silver metallic shimmer paper and the blades from silver mirror paper.

The next card features the Alpine Snowflakes.

6259FE30-2955-43DB-9D28-9DB112F34348

And last but not least, the third card features the Little Trees die.  These are adorable, don’t you think?

And that’s it for my set of cards.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Trio of Frilling Snowflake Ornaments by Jean Okimoto

P1020909

Snowflakes, glitter glue, jewel gemstones and plaids?  Yes, when the new Frilling Snowflake Ornament set makes it easy to combine design elements for a simple holiday slimline card.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a basic design you can create for anyone on your list.

Cut the dark red and the bright green 6x6's from the Berry Red and Lush Green Collections with the solid Frilling Snowflake Ornament die.  Cut the red/white/green diagonal stripe from the Jolly Christmas 6x6 too.  Punch holes at the top with a ⅛" circle punch, screwpunch or rotating leather punch.

Cut the snowflake and the snowflake ornament from the gold Rainbow Reflections 6x6 sheet.  Assemble the red and green ornaments.  Tie them with gold cord and curl the cord using the side of a bone folder or the plastic flower shaping tool.  For best results, follow the curl of the cord.

P1020940

Here's a tip - if you're trying to match a special color but can't find the right shade of glittered cardstock - create a custom match with Open Studio Glitter Glue.  Diecut Special Merry Christmas from the same red 6x6 used for the ornament.  Shake the bottle of Ruby Crystal Glitter Glue and squeeze a blob of it onto scrap paper.  Generously finger-press the glitter glue onto the greeting.  Just daub it on - don't try to spread it out.  Air-dry it while you assemble the card.

P1020930

Attach the ornaments to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½").  Attach the pale green Bright Jewels.

Add the greeting - slightly curved.

The Memory Box 6x6 plaids and prints are designed to coordinate with the 6x6 paper collections, glittered cardstock and mirror cardstock.  Mix, match and layer the papers and discover great combinations.

Thanks for visiting - see you again next week!

Cut the scarf and the hat's pompom and border from the bright pink Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad 6x6.  Attach adhesive label paper (or a sticker sheet) to bright pink felt and cut the triangle portion of the hat.

Assemble the snowlady.   Fold and attach the narrow end of the scarf behind the neck.  Attach the scarf and hat.  The Little Bundled Snowman set includes several different layers to add dimension to the scarf and hat - mix and match them to create the perfect accessories.

Need a bigger tree for the new Layered Birds and Layered Sled?  Create a taller, wider layered pine with glittered, overlapping diecuts of Layered Narrow Pines.  

But first...Happy Veterans Day and Thank You to those who served our country!

Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another way to use the great versatile designs from our Christmas '22 Collection for your holiday greetings...

Cut the large Layered Narrow Pines from a Lush Green Collection 6x6 sheet. Remove the trunks of the two smaller pieces.  Color the remaining trunk with a brown marker.  Overlap and glue the pieces to form a wide "tree."    

Cut the narrow overlays with a green Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad  6x6.  Layer them over the tree.  It's a new tree - big enough for the birds!

Cut Layered Birds from heavy white cardstock.  Attach adhesive label paper (or a sticker sheet) to bright red felt and cut the birds again.  The paper stabilizes the felt and keeps adhesives from saturating the fabric.  Assemble the birds.

Use a hard rubber brayer to roll Starlite Black Brilliance over a strip of White Woodgrain Paper to define and darken the texture.  Cut the individual strips in the center portion of the  Layered Sled.  Cut the remainder of the sled with the red Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad 6x6.  Cut the handle from dark gray cardstock.  Assemble the sled.

Cut two of the small Feathery Snowflake Discs from heavy white cardstock.

Stamp the greeting - from the new Sweet Christmas Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock with Satin Red VersaFine.  Quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.  Cut it wit h the 1-¾" Square Basics die.

Attach the diecuts to a 5-½" square light green card.  Square cards require extra postage and special handling, but some designs just call for a square.

Holiday Greetings
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_3054 (1)


Good morning everyone!  Today's card features a few new snowflake dies from the latest Christmas release.

IMG_3057 (1)

I die cut many Alpine Snowflakes from white cardstock and glued them to a white cardstock panel.  Once the glue was dry, I sprayed the paper with 2 colors of Distress Mica Stain, Winter Frost and Snow Flurries.  When the background was dry, I spattered it with white paint.

I die cut the Celeste Snowflake from silver glitter paper and the snowflake shadow from white cardstock.  Then I glued the silver snowflake to the shadow die cut and adhered it to the prepared background.  

IMG_3056 (1)

 

Next, I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of black cardstock and used foam tape to adhere it across the snowflake.

The background was glued to a black cardstock mat and then adhered to a white card base.



That's it for today.  I hope you have a great day!

Elegant Snowflake Christmas Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I am back with another snowflake card design.  This time it is using metallic color palette with the glitter and mirror paper pads.  These are also go together pretty quickly so you can mass produce them in various colors.  I used champagne and bronze color themes.

B90D2353-8E49-4C87-AD87-754D1C973A69_1_201_a

Snowflake:

Die cut the bottom of the Gloriette Snowflake Collage die from mirror paper.  I used a bronze from Rainbow Reflections Mirror and the champagne gold from Vintage Pastel Mirror pad.  The die cut the top snowflake from a matching glitter paper. Both glitter papers game from the Majestic Hues Glitter pad.  Save all the die cut dots.  Adhere the top snowflake to the bottom and adhere all the dots expect for the tip of the snowflakes.  Instead use the smallest clear Fairy Drops and a medium size for the center.

29B8BDE7-E99B-4487-B4F1-A95D6F7C2E07

Sentiment:

Die cut Merry Christmas Curled Script die from Black Glossy paper, 2 times.  Adhere them together.

A92C50B8-E775-413C-87C3-E05F88CABA18_1_201_a

Assembly:

Cut the Black Glossy paper to 4 1/4" x 9 1/2" and score at the  4 3/4" and fold over to create the card base.  Cut another Black Glossy paper to 4" x 4".  Cut the matching glitter paper to 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".  Adhere the panels together, leaving boards.  Use a thick liquid glue for to adhere to the glitter paper.  Even though the Black Glossy paper is thick, a medium thick glue shows through.  Adhere the snowflake to the center and the sentiment at an angle over the snowflake.

A sparkly heart and shimmery Classic Pair of Ice Skates create a holiday design in soft shades of peach, coral and silver.  Floss or crochet thread adds dimension and texture to the skates.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a holiday slimline design from our Christmas '22 Collection.

Cut the tops of the Classic Pair of Ice Skates from the pale peach

Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad 6x6.  Cut the base from the darker peach sheet.  Cut the runners from the silver 6x6.

Add the realistic look of laces with floss or crochet thread.  Pull another strand of floss or thread over a block of beeswax or paraffin to coat and stiffen the fibers and add some shape to the loops. Tie the bow and tape the ends behind the skates.  

Cut the small and medium Starburst Snowflake Discs from the Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad silver sheet.  We're using the inner offcuts here.  

Cut the sparkly peach Delicate Pastels Glitter Pad 6x6 with the three largest Double Stitch Happy Heart dies.

Prep the new Keep  Christmas Curled Script die with scrunched waxed paper to help release the delicate letters and little pieces.  Notice how the dots for the letter i in "Christmas" and "in" are created by the other sections of the greeting so we don't need to find - and attach - that elusive teeny tiny circle.  Very smart, thanks Dave Brethauer!

Attach the hearts to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½") - slightly offset so a bit of the white card peeks through.  Attach the other diecuts - use foam dots for left skate. Use a tiny drop of glue to attach the center of the bow to the card.

Add clear Christmas Fairy Dewdrops.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of  cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Build a glittery snowflake tree with the newest dies from Memory Box. Feathery Snowflake Discs and Starburst Snowflake Discs are ready for any holiday design on your to-do list.  They can also be ornaments, decorated cookies, pastel peppermints, garlands or game pieces.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here on a rainy card-making Saturday.

Cut Feathery Snowflake Discs and Starburst Snowflake Discs from heavy white cardstock.  We'll need a total of 8 small, 4 medium and 1 large disc.  Save the delicate snowflake offcuts for another project.  Cut the dark teal 6x6 from the Glitzy Glitter Pad with the 1", 1-¼" and 1-½" Circle Basics dies.  You'll need a matching circle for each of the snowflake discs.  Attach the snowflake discs. 

Cut the skinniest Birch Tree Trunk from the gold 6x6 inn the Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad.  Attach it to a white A6 card (4-½" x 6-¼").  Attach the snowflake discs.  

Cut the new Layered Birds from the gold 6x6 in the Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad.  Assemble the birds and attach them to the card.

Cut Repeat the Sounding Joy Curled Script from a dark teal 6x6 in the Fresh Aqua Collection.  Attach it in the card - leave the ends of the R and Y unattached.  Attach the snowflake discs, then glue the ends to the discs.  The very tiny piece to dot the i disappeared so I used one of the tiny offcuts instead.

Create a symmetrical tree with the snowflake discs too with 1, 2, 3 and 4 per layer.  Or attach the inner snowflake offcuts to circles and build another tree.  There are so many ways to use these great dies!

Merry Christmas with Celeste & Gloriette Snowflakes
by Angie Cimbalo

Card 1 a

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with some holiday card inspiration for you!

Today I am featuring several new dies from the newest release:

Celeste Snowflake
Gloriette Snoflake Collage
Merry Christmas Curled Script

The snowflake dies come with two dies, one that cuts the pattern and an outline die if you want to have the snowflake with a wider edge around it. For my cards I only used the inside dies, not the outline dies.

I also used Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad for the silver parts and gems from both the Christmas Jewels and Christmas Crystals sets.

Here's a closer look at my first card:

Card 1 b'

I love it when the light catches those lovely red gems! Here's how I made my card:
First I cut the two snowflakes out of the bottom of an A2 card panel. Be sure to save the extra wide pieces around the edge that fall out!

As you can see in the picture below, I added the white cut panel to a black one but needed to find the extra white pieces to add in the black spaces around the edges.

Process


Once I have them all added I die cut both snowflakes out of silver mirror card stock and inserted them into the openings on the white panel. I went back and added the white pieces around the edge to give it a more finished look. I cut the white/black panel down by 3/4" and then added it to an A2 black panel before adding that to my card base. I put the white panel in the bottom left corner, leaving a black edge on the top and on the right.

Next I added the die cut sentiment and some red gems. Here's a final look at my first card:

Card 1 c

I was having so much fun I decided to go ahead and make a second card with the same supplies.

Here's a look at my second card:

Card 2 a

I made it much in the same way except I started with an A2 black panel cut on the diagonal from bottom left to top right. I added that black panel to a white card base. Next, I cut the two silver mirror snowflakes and added them to the black panel with part of them hanging over into the white part of the card. The top snowflake cuts a star from the center, so I used both stars I had cut to embellish my card along with some silver jewels from the same Christmas Jewels pack.

Here's a closer look:

Card 2 b

Lastly I cut the same sentiment word die and added it to the bottom of the card. Often when you have delicate dies like the sentiment - the letters are very thin, or the many details in the snowflakes, I find it hard to get the die cut out of the die. But the Memory Box dies cut so well and thoroughly that they fall right out. I will tell you to help with this, I turn my whole sandwich upside down before I send it through the die cutting machine and that ensures I will get a die cut that's easy to get out of the die!

Here's one last look at card #2:

Card 2 c

And here's a look at both cards, side by side:

Both cards

I hope you like my cards for today. The new dies from the latest Memory Box collection are beautiful and there are a lot of them to choose from! The make the most elegant cards with very little effort. So if you are in the market for a quick way to make your holiday cards this year, check out the whole release HERE!  If you want direct links to the products I used, head to my blog HERE!
And be sure to stop by the Memory Box blog often for inspiration from the design team!
