Memory Box and Imagine Crafts…


Hi everyone! Today I’m posting with some Memory Box and Imagine Crafts goodness!

I started with a Memory Box Parchment A-2 Notecard for my card base.

I cut another Parchment A-2 Notecard in half and die cut the Musicality collage die in it. (don’t worry about keeping any of the pieces, you just want the hole)

I die cut the Musicality Collage die in black glossy card-stock and inlaid it into the cut in the parchment piece.  Doing it this way keeps the lines straight and everything in place. Because I’m mounting it on the same color card-stock, I don’t need to inlay all the little pieces. Works slick!  : )  I scotch tape it in place on the back side.

Adhere the Parchment panel to your notecard.

I stamped the sentiment Joyful Combo  with Imagine Crafts Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black Pigment Ink and embossed it with Imagine Crafts Clear Embossing Powder. (I use a stampamajig for stamp placement)



I die cut the Poinsettia Bloom Trio die in Cranberry card-stock and covered all the pieces with Imagine Crafts irRESISTible Love Letter Pico Embellisher. It’s a glossy color finish that comes with a  fine line applicator.

Add a black pearl in the center of the poinsettia.

I die cut the Elliana Ornament die in White card-stock.  I inked all the pieces with Imagine Crafts Versamark ink and embossed them with multiple coats of Imagine Crafts Black and Sparkle Embossing Powders to get an ornament that ‘looks like glass’ effect. (You might want the background ornament too… it’s HERE)

I die cut the Ornament Hooks and Caps die in Black glossy card-stock for the cap and from Silver Glitter card-stock for the hook.

Wish I could show it to you IRL!

I’m linking up to some challenges…

House of Cards Challenge – use a die or punch or both

Christmas Card Challenges – Anything Goes

Allsorts Challenge – Christmas


Here’s another card I made because I wanted to use some more inks and spray… as if I hadn’t made a big enough mess already! haha




I started with an A-2 top folding White card base.

I cut a white card-stock panel and embossed the panel with the new Large Snowflakes Stencil  by running it through my Big Shot. (I show this on a couple videos. Click on the video tab under the header)

Leaving the stencil in place, I adhered it to my desk with removable tape and using Imagine Crafts finger daubers, I inked the snowflakes with Imagine Crafts Memento Luxe Wedding Dress pigment ink.  Remove the stencil and emboss with Imagine Crafts White Embossing Powder.

Using three Imagine Crafts Versacolor square ink pads, Opera Pink, Peony and Raspberry, I rubbed ink over the snowflakes.

Then I sprayed on Imagine Crafts Sparkle Shimmer Spritz and rubbed the inked surface to blend and wipe the ink off the snowflakes.

I die cut the Peace Script die in White card-stock, smeared it with Versacolor Opera Pink ink and embossed it with Imagine Crafts Iridescent Embossing Powder.

I die cut the Pine Border Background die in White card-stock also.  I adhered the Peace Script cut to the trees with little dots of Tombow Mono Multi glue, then sprayed them with the Sparkle Shimmer Spritz and mounted the trees to the card with mounting squares.

I hope you can see the sparkle in the photo.  I took the picture in full sunlight, hoping it would show up.  I really like all of Imagine Crafts products.. hard to say what is my favorite because they are all FABULOUS!!!

THANKS so much for stopping by today!  It’s sunny and beautiful here in IA… yay!

  7. I too am in love with the first card… hope you don’t mind if I ask a question….? When you said:
    “I inked all the pieces with Imagine Crafts Versamark ink and embossed them with multiple coats of Imagine Crafts Black and Sparkle Embossing Powders to get an ornament that ‘looks like glass’ effect.”
    How did you keep track of all the small pices… did you stick them on something before you started the Versa and embossing…?

    1. Hi Dotty! Yes I did! I didn’t at first but they were flying everywhere and SO was the powder.. oh ugh. I had my box for that right there but I’d forgotten! I ended up sticking them to painters tape. whew. Then it worked fine.. I just kept throwing little pinches of powder on it where it needed it with my right hand and the heat gun in my left. : ) Thanks for commenting! ‘preciate it so much! Pam

  8. I’m in total LOVE with your first card. Just beautiful and right up my alley. Those are my FAVE die’s. Wow….I LOVE the glossy, glassy look. So elegant and stunning Pam!!!! If you don’t have a recipient in mind for this card, I’m here for ya’ Girl. =)
