Memory Box

Featuring Memory Box products

Butterfly thanks

There’s another fabulous sketch at Case This Sketch this week! For my card, I embossed a Hero Arts background stamp with white satin pearl embossing powder. I then blended a mix of regular distress inks (Seedless Preserves and Abandoned Coral) and Antique Linen distress oxide ink and wiped over the embossing to remove any excess ink. I used water to lift some of the colour from the butterfly wings and splattered a little randomly across the rest of the background.

I added a vellum banner, Hero Arts sentiment and some Memory Box butterflies cut from glitter cardstock to finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Blooming Lotus

I loved the sketch for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge, but it took me quite a while to decide on my card. Then I remembered the gorgeous Memory Box Blooming Lotus outline die! I bought it online a few years ago, but never used it because it was so much bigger than I had expected! I thought it would be perfect as the focal point for my entry.

I used distress inks to create a background which I then cut and inlaid into an outline cut from glitter paper. It’s so sparkly in real life!

Oxide Butterflies

Hi everyone!

I was super excited that both Seedless Preserves and Abandoned Coral were included in the latest Distress Oxide ink release! I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them and play! They are absolutely gorgeous!

Anyway, for this card, I included some Broken China oxide ink as well to create a background which I spritzed lightly with perfect pearls to add a bit of shimmer.

I used some glitter paper to cut  out a fabulous background die from Memory Box and adhered it on top of my distressed panel.

To finish off the card, I used a sentiment from My Favorite Things.

Thanks for looking!

White on White Thanks

Hi everyone

I didn’t have too much time to craft today but wanted to do a white-on-white card, which is the theme for the current Addicted to CAS challenge.

I used dies from Memory Box, Winnie and Walter and Penny Black to cut regular white cardstock and glitter cardstock (but I’m afraid you can’t see the glitter very well). Anyway, I thought I’d add a vellum panel behind the main die cut image… then I added some flowers…. then some pearls… I couldn’t stop myself….. Not sure the end result really qualifies as CAS, although in my defence there is still a fair bit of white space….

Thanks for looking!

Happy Owl

Hi everyone!

I love participating in sketch challenges as they often push me beyond my CAS comfort zone… and I also find that I can use up some of my very neglected patterned paper mountain at the same time!

Today’s card is for the current My Favorite Things sketch challenge – I’ve paired MFT stamps with dies from Simon Says Stamp and Memory Box on this card. And I’ve been able to use some of my patterned paper (from My Mind’s Eye). Woo hoo indeed!

Thanks for looking!

I’m here for you

Hi everyone!

I’ve been playing with Distress Oxide inks today – they are such fun!

I created a smooshed background that I used for the butterflies and then added a strip of stencilled cardstock that I’d sprayed with water repeatedly.

I’m entering this into the current Case This Sketch challenge.

Thanks for looking!
