MB Blog Blitz - Chloe Stem

If you follow the Memory Box Design Team blog - Outside the Box, you know that this week we are having a blog blitz.  Give aways every day this week just for leaving a comment.

Today it was my turn to post with the new collection from Memory Box.  This is one of my favorite collections yet!  Something for everyone.

When Dave Brethauer, the owner of Memory Box, sent us pictures of the new dies, I immediately knew I was going to use the Chloe Stem die (98321).....it's so MOD!!   But, I also love grunge.  This card combines both of these styles.

Here are the details....
  • Stamp Vintage Dreams (G1838) with a watermark ink (like Versamark) onto a piece of Parchment paper and heat emboss with fine detail clear embossing powder.  Trim this piece down and distress with a combination of Bundled Sage, Tumbled Glass, and Dusty Concord Distress Inks using ink blending tool and foam.  Then adhere this piece to Licorice paper.  Adhere to a mat cut from the new Aloe paper and then adhere to a Sky Note Card (also one of the new colors).
  • Stamp Wishing You a Happy Day (B1853) onto parchment paper and adhere to Bistro Label (98210) die cut from Licorice paper.
  • Attach this piece to the front of the card with bakers twine.
  • Die cut Chloe Stem (98321) from Wildbloom 12 X 12 paper (also part of the Viola 6 X 6 paper pack)
  • Yes, I added Stickles to the blooms and once the Stickles were dry, I topped them with Glossy Accents.
  • Attach the Chloe Stem to the card front and you're set!
Check out all the details on how to win prizes over on the Outside the Box blog!

Talk to you soon!
