More Pretty in Pink Holiday Cards
by Anne Thompson

Today's cards use several items from the Memory Box 2023 Christmas Collection--printed papers, rub ons, a stencil, and a clear stamp set.  Here's the trio I made, again with a focus on pink.

materials list

to make these cards

  • cover the front of a white notecard (or trim the paper down so there's a white border around the edge) with paper from the Poinsettia Garland paper pad

  • cut a smaller piece of white card stock; use the Snow Flurries stencil, pink ink, and a fingertip dauber to add scattered pink dots

IMG-2293 (1)-ink

  • add rub ons from the Poinsettia Rub On pages to the dotted panels

RUB102

  • stamp sentiments from the Shining Star stamp set using black ink (VersaFine Clair Tuxedo is what I used)

  • add the finished panel to the front of the notecard

Here are close-ups of the cards individually.

This is another set of cards that went together fairly easily and quickly in assembly-fashion-style.  I certainly could add more dimension and sparkle to them by adding Glitter Glue to the berries or using Fairy Drops, Jewels, Crystals, Dewdrops, or Gemstones--Memory Box offers quite a few choices in the Glitz department!  

Happy Crafting!

Capture the colors of a autumn sunset on a background for the new Gypsy Oak Leaves.  Heat-embossed speckles and the new Happy Fall Posh Script greeting add golden highlights.  Hi, Jean here - with another way to use the great new die from the Vintage Tray 3D Embossing Folder set.

Attach Vintage Tray 3D Embossing Folder die to smooth white cardstock and create ink-blended blocks of warm fall pastels.  Distress Oxides were used here - spiced marmalade, kitsch flamingo, wild honey and dried marigold.  Remove and clean the die and heat-set the inks.  

The new Snow Flurries Stencil is great for random scattered speckles  - perfect for those of us who are ink-splatter-challenged.  Stencil a few of the dots with VersaMark and heat-emboss them with detail gold powder.  Diecut the blocks - save the extras for another project.

Cut Gypsy Oak Leaves from light- and medium-coral cardstock.  Assemble the leaves - slightly offset.

Glue 2 layers of white cardstock together and diecut the Happy Fall Posh Script Background.  Pressure-emboss it with the detailed greeting using the rubber embossing mat and plate(s) required for your machine.  Cut the detailed greeting from the gold Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad 6x6.

Attach the diecuts to a white A6 card (6-¼" x 4-½").  Add light gold Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut an A6-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Gracious Floral Birthday
by Trina Pham

IMG_2488

Hello everyone.  I needed a birthday card and created this simple card using all three products from the June 2023 Gracious Floral collection. 

The floral image was stamped with Fade Out ink on white cardstock for a no-line coloring look.  Used the coordinating stencils and a couple of gradient dye ink colors in blue, green and gray to color the image.  Die cut the image out with the coordinating die next, then ran it through the die cutting machine in the coordinating embossing folder.

IMG_2489

Cut the image apart into two, adhered on opposite corners on a white woodgrain panel, and trimmed off the overhangs.  The sentiment from Poppy Stamps Modest Greetings 1 Hot Foil Plate & Die was hot foiled with gold foil.  Die cut it out with the rectangle strip die included in the set and matte it to gold Vintage Pastel mirror cardstock.  Assembled the card to finish.

That does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

Stencilled Gracious Floral Birthday
by Trina Pham

IMG_1555

Hello everyone.  This was a birthday card I made for a crafty friend whose birthday was last Sunday.  I used the Gracious Floral stamp with the focus on the coordinating layering stencil set from the Gracious Floral collection.  As Laura mentioned in a previous post, there is a guide to help with coloring the floral image using these stencils, but unfortunately, I lost/misplaced mine.  Luckily, it was easy enough to figure out. 
 
The image was stamped with Fadeout ink onto white cardstock because I wanted a no-line coloring look.  A light neutral dye ink, such as Antique Linen distress ink, could be used instead.  Gradient colors of dye inks in purple, yellow and green were then applied with blending brushes through the stencils.  After the stencilling was complete, Polychromos pencils were then used to shade and/or color it further to give it more/better definition and dimension.  I did take creative licence, skipping the top stencil layer on the large leaves, so I can add in my own details. 😉

IMG_1558

The image was die cut out next using the coordinating die, then cut apart to “stretch” diagonally across the card front.  Heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder onto a scrap of black cardstock before die cutting it out with a Poppy Stamps Basic Oval die.  Assembled the card onto a white card base, then added clear shimmer on the flowers and some clear jewels for a bit of sparkle to finish.

That does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Take advantage of the The Gracious Floral Collection's coordinating design elements and create a summer thank you card.  Let textures, layers and stenciling build dimension in a cooling mix of fresh greens, pale yellows and crisp white.  Hi, Jean here with a versatile design from our summer release.

Stamp the floral image from the Gracious Floral Clear Stamp and Die Set on heavy white cardstock with Smoky Gray VersaFine.  Heat-set the ink - because we're stenciling  and 3D-embossing over it.  Diecut it with the die that's included in the stamp and die set.  Spritz the un-stamped backside of the diecut with a light mist of water.  Place the diecut in the Gracious Floral 3D Embossing Folder and pressure emboss it using the plate(s) required for your machine.

Stencil the diecut with Sunflower Yellow and Pearlescent Thyme Brilliance inks - the color-coded guide included in the Gracious Floral Stencil Set makes it simple!

Cut lime green cardstock with the 2-¾" wide Curved Cap Pinpoint Layers die.

Stamp the greeting on white cardstock with Pearlescent Thyme Brilliance and quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.  Cut the greeting with the second-smallest Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  Trim the excess cardstock with the edge of a larger die.

Just For You on Gray
by Angie Cimbalo

Just for you main

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today!   I have another fun card made with the new Memory Box June release called Gracious Floral.  It includes coordinating 3D embossing folder, dies, stamps and stencils.
 
To make my card I first embossed a piece of light gray card stock with the new 3D embossing folder and then used the stencils and ink daubers to color the image with Distress Inks.  Once I was happy with the colors, I took the large coordinating die from the stamp set and cut out the gray panel.  I cut a 2nd one from a piece of A2 card stock, and inserted the colored one into the opening.  
 
The sentiment is a stamp and die in the Gracious Floral set and I heat embossed it in white on black card stock and used the die to cut it out.
 
Here's another look:

Just for you close

I added that whole panel to a white card base and then added white gel pen accents, black dots to tiny flower centers and then added small jewels from the Christmas Jewels set.  Here's one last look:

Just for you 1

I hope you like my card for today, I really enjoyed creating it.  Be sure to come back tomorrow to see more inspiration from the design team!  Happy crafting my friends!

Playing with Stencils
by Laura Fulcher

Stencil

Greetings friends. The Gracious Floral release had a beautiful layered stencil in it that I used to create this card. Once of the best things about the stencil set is that it comes with a little booklet that shows you how to order the stencils and gives suggestions for colors. Of course, you don't have to follow the directions and create the floral design any way that you want.

For my card, I followed the layered suggestions exactly to give you an idea of what the finished product would look like. I also used ink colors as close to the picture as I could. For each layer, I taped my stencil down with repositionable tape and then sponged my dye ink on top.

Here is a close up of the layers:

Just For You
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_5231

Hello everyone!  Today's card features products from the new Gracious Floral release.  I love the stamp, layering stencils and die combination for the floral image.

I began by stamping and die cutting the Gracious Floral image.  Next, I used small blending brushes, dye inks and the layering stencils to color in the image.

IMG_5227

I used white cardstock and the Ringadings 3D Embossing folder to create the background for the card.  I adhered the embossed background to a gold metallic cardstock mat and glued it to a white card base.

I created the gold frame behind the floral image by hot foiling one of the Rectangle Double Border Hot Foil Frames.  I die cut the frame using the Rectangle Frames Die Set.  I glued this to the embossed card background and used foam tape to adhere the floral image.

IMG_5229

I stamped the sentiment with Versa Mark ink and gold heat embossed it.  I used foam tape to adhere it to the card.

I hope you have a great day and that's for stopping by!

Just For You
by Angie Cimbalo

 

Not stamped main

Hello and welcome!  I have two similar cards made with the new mini release from Memory Box.  In this release there is a large floral 3D embossing folder with single floral die, a coordinating stamp set and die set, along with stencils that help you color the large image.
 
This first card was created by embossing the image, stenciling the colors on the embossed areas, then using the large die from the stamp set to cut it out.  Next I cut the center flower out with the small die that comes in the embossing folder and a second one from white and stacked them, colored one on top.  I put the whole large image back into the embossing folder to embossed it again as it had slightly flattened when I die cut it.  I glued the yellow stacked flower on top of the center and then popped the whole large image up on the card front.

Not stamped close
 
Lastly I added the sentiment, which is from the stamp/die set which I heat embossing in white on black card, and I added a few jewels too.  Here's one last look:
 
Not stamped 1

Now for the 2nd card, which looks very similar, here are the steps I used to make it.  First I stamped the large image and colored it with the stencils.  Next I cut out the center flower using the small die included in the embossing folder.  Then I die cut the entire image with the large die from the stamp set.  I added the image to the embossing folder after I colored it.  On this card, I did the same thing with the center flower, cut one extra from white card to stack under the colored one.  Just like on the other card, I popped it up and added jewels around the card front.

Here you can see the stacked center flower:
