NEW Memory Box Gentle Rose Watercolor Floral, Plumed Gypsy Butterfly and Curlicue Plate Cards…

Hi everyone! It’s time for a new release from the Memory Box companies!  The usual beautiful products to work with!

I have two cards to share with you using the NEW Curlicue Plate!  I love it!  So whimsical and fun!  Keep going for my second card using it.

I wanted to use some other NEW dies too… so I made up the New Gentle Rose Watercolor Floral in a couple colors but went with pink from the Memory Box Berry Red 6×6 cardstock pad… it’s February, all things Red!

The NEW Wayfarer Leaves die cut in three colors of green from the Memory Box  Lush Green cardstock 6×6 pad.

The NEW Hugs Tender Script die cut in white and then in Memory Box Glossy Black cardstock.  I love this glossy black.  I’ve about used up my pack!  Not quite an emergency yet. lol  What a pretty font though!  Isn’t it gorgeous?!

I should’ve told my camera to focus on the hugs instead of the flower here.  I am an amateur… worse than an amateur! lol

I die cut the Curlicue Plate in white cardstock, the green panel underneath with the NEW A2 Rectangle Frames Die Set (same Lush Green cardstock pad)  and the oval from vellum using the Memory Box Studio Oval Layers die set.

The pretty rosebuds are from the Birch Press Design Morning Rose and Triple Buds Contour Layers dies released earlier this year.

My next card came about because I had an almost perfect Curlicue Plate die cut!  It’s so hard to throw those away!  So I thought about it and decided to try cutting away the parts that didn’t cut completely the first time.  This plate needs a shim… so I use a piece of copy paper folded in half on top of my cutting plate to run it through… blades up as I always say! (I never use that metal shim)

I thought this turned out fun!  You know me and kraft!  White, pool and whimsy! Oh and staples!

A beautiful NEW butterfly for all the butterfly lovers out there!  Plumed Gypsy Butterfly!

***notice how I used the curlicue from the part I cut off behind the butterfly!  clever… hehe

Hello Rush Script is a NEW sentiment die… love it in that glossy black again…

A new set of nesting dies!  Curved Cap Pinpoint Layers.  I can see this one working for banners too!

I think I remembered everything!  Send me an email or comment if you have any questions!  I don’t mind at all!

I used the Tim Holtz mini stapler to hold the Curlicue cut down but glued in the few pieces of pool color.

  1. I love them both! It’s so much fun when we can use our mistakes as creative endeavors, especially when we love the final outcome! My fave is the 2nd card! Great job, as always!

  2. Two beautiful cards!! I have gotten a couple of kids Birthday cards made-but I missed some as well! Our son’s Birthday is Feb 28-so I should get one done for him very soon!! The days just seem to fly by with me just watching…….ha ha!!

  3. Very nice. The rose card was an oooooh ahhhhh at first site! The other one brought a peaceful feeling. Great job!

  4. Wowie, I think I might even like the partial cut better on that curlicue die! I love both cards and you’ve shown how versatile the die is. It’s way fun to play and try things out and come up with amazing creations like this. Love that butterfly, too, and, yup, the tail swirl is another cute and clever idea!

  5. So beautiful, both of them! I love the partial, and the way you filled in partial of the swirl with color. But the rose and all those sweet buds has my heart! Love that you added the vellum to soften the background. 2 gems, Pam! So. happy to see you playing along at The Flower Challenge!

  6. Two beautiful cards Pam but I love the CAS butterfly one! I am intrigued by the staples too – I’ve never thought to do this, but they make a real style statement (and far less fiddly than glue for a detailed die), so thanks for the tip! Thanks too for playing along with our current sketch challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches!

  7. These are so beautiful Pam – loving the vellum layer, and the partial of the curlicue one!! Brilliant!!! I had no idea that Gypsy Butterfly was that pretty!!

  8. Wow, this is gorgeous Pam! Would you believe I just bought a Hallmark birthday card to give to my sister-in-law a few days ago. You are so inspiring!

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
