New Memory Box Stencils and Dies


Been having great fun playing with some of the stencils and dies from the new release from Memory Box. They arrived at Oyster Stamps shop yesterday and I was straight up to have a look!

I made this card by using their Texture Shine stencil and a white paste medium, then showered in 4 different colours of glitter whilst wet. Remember to tape your stencil  on all 4 sides to keep it flat using stencil or masking tape (make sure it's low tack) and swipe your paste on from the top down. Also don't forget to get your stencil and knife into water asap to clean off the paste! Once it's dry you can mat and layer up, I used silver holographic card and white linen, before adding your choice of embellishments. I used Memory Box Delightful Heart Border (twice) and cut into lengths ; their Pinwheel Posie to make the pink rolled rose, a couple of squiggles made from wire, a couple of small blue flowers and then 3 gems in the corner.


This card is simpler, using Memory Box stencil - Frame Love and 4 colours of distress inks (Festive Berries, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry). Again tape down before doing and then just dab the inks on through the stencil shape. The topper was made using Memory Box die Butterfly Heart embellished with tiny gems to match the distress inks.

Finally for today .....

The background was made using Memory Box stencil - Texture Flourish using black gloss paste. Topped with the Butterfly Heart again but this time I cut 3 of the little butterflies out of the topper and had them flying away. The side of the card is embellished with Memory Box die - Kensington Border in black.
