Yahoo!!! The newest Memory Box stencils and dies from both the Memory Box and Open Studio collections are here!!!
I chose an item from each of the new collections to use in some valentines:
- from Open Studio dies: BUSY AS A BEE 30031, 6 steel craft dies mounted on a magnetic sheet
- from Memory Box dies: SURELY STITCHED CIRCLE 99074
- from Memory Box stencils: HEART CONFETTI 88588
Using a white notecard and the HEART CONFETTI stencil, I applied MementoLuxe Love Letter (red) Ink with a fingertip dauber (both from Imagine Crafts) to place hearts on the card front leaving a space for the SURELY STITCHED CIRCLE which I added on the right. A glue pen worked perfectly on the narrow lines of this die cut. The adorable little bee is from the BUSY AS A BEE set of dies. I wrote "bee mine" with my medium black Pitt Pen.
Then I made this one, using fewer hearts and adding the perforated flight path of the bee from the BUSY AS A BEE set, cut into the card front after everything else was done:
And for this one I added some red and white baker's twine, changed the bee's wings to black, and used some Memory Box Cranberry Moroccan patterned paper for the circle:
