Celebrate a birthday with the new Spring Lilacs Clear Stamps Set and Spring Lilacs Die Set - it's sure to be a special day!  Add a trellis-y  background with a die from the Distressed Baptisia Collage Set and a classic greeting from the new Birthday Sentiments Clear Stamp Set.  

Hi, Jean Okimoto here, with an easy way to eliminate some of the stress of watercoloring.  It's a challenge to stay inside the lines - literally and figuratively - when I'm coloring.  The watercolors just have a way of escaping out onto the background, especially a white background.  Eliminate that issue by tinting the background with a light wash of your dominant color and air-dry it.  I've used a tiny, very diluted amount of the Pansy Dye Ink Refill for Kaleidacolors.  Iron it with a dry iron on the cotton setting to smooth the paper out again.  Stamp the lilacs with Imagine Crafts Espresso Truffle Memento Luxe and emboss it with detail clear powder.   MemoryBoxSpringLilacsClearStampSet-MemoryBoxSpringLilacsDieSet-MemoryBoxOpenStudioRectangleBasics-MemoryBoxOpenStudioDistressedBaptisiaCollageSet-MemoryBoxOpenStudioBirthdaySentimentsClearStampSet-JeanOkimotoWatercoloredCards-ImagineCrafts-WatercoloredFlowerCards

Watercolor the image with diluted Pansy, Spring Green and Spruce refill inks.  Let it dry.  Cut it with the coordinating Spring Lilacs die.  Diecutting the lilacs is quick and easy if you align the die with the stem and lower edges of the leaves first - then with the blossom at the top.  A bit of painter's tape at those 4 spots will secure the die and produce great results!

Stamp and emboss the greeting from the new Open Studio Birthday Sentiments Clear Stamp Set on white cardstock.  Cut it with the 3-1/4" x 4-1/2" Rectangle Basics Die.  

Cut white cardstock with the grid pattern from the Distressed Baptisia Collage set.  Trim it with the 2" x 3-1/4" Rectangle Basics Die.  It's a must-have set of 16 dies perfectly proportioned cutting layers for A-2 cards - and it's great for A-6 and A-7 cards too.  I can't design a rectangle card without it!

Attach everything to a top-folded A-2 card of textured white cardstock - use foam dots behind the lilacs at the top.   Add pale violet gem stickers.

Big thanks to everyone from last weekend's SUMMER HEARTS class at Impress!  We discovered a few new ways to use our favorite  heart dies, stamps and papers.  They're classic, versatile and perfect for summer celebrations and events - or just to say "I'm thinking of you."  Thanks too - Becca and Erin - for helping us find everything we needed for our summer cards!

There's a second SUMMER HEARTS class on May 29th.  It's Memorial Day, and classes on a holiday seem to be more relaxing - and it's always a great time to meet new friends and catch up with those you haven't seen in a while.  

Thanks for stopping by - hope you enjoyed last week's May Release Blog Blitz.  I appreciate all of your thoughtful comments!

May Release Blog Blitz – A Fish Tales Stamp Set Giveaway
by Jean Okimoto

MemoryBoxFishTales-MemoryBoxOpenStudioRectangleBasics-MemoryBoxSeaweedStalks-JeanOkimoto-PeerlessWatercolors-WatercoloredBackgrounds-FishCards-DiecutFishCards-ImpressCardaAndCrafts-ImagineCrafts-ShizenDesign

Bright tropical colors and the new Fish Tales Clear Stamp Set send birthday wishes today.  Hello, welcome back to our May Release Blog Blitz! Jean Okimoto here with another design featuring this great new clear stamp set and the matching set of dies.

MemoryBoxFishTales-MemoryBoxMayRelease-MemoryBoxOpenStudioRectangleBasics-MemroyBoxSeaweedStalks-JeanOkimoto-WatercoloredBackgrounds-PeerlessWatercolors-ShizenDesignWatercolorPaper

It's easy to organize (and find!) your favorite "open" die sets if they're attached to curtain rings from a fabric or home store.  I attach the rings to a magnetic bar that's attached to a shelf in my work area.  That's a lot of attachment - but it works for me!

Paint deckle-edged rough watercolor paper from Shizen Design with Peerless Watercolors and air-dry it.  Add a pearly wash of diluted Peerless Transparent Silver and heat-set it.  The deckled edges and texture enhance the shimmery layer and contrast nicely against the matte diecuts.   Trim the right and bottom edges with a Rectangle Basics die.  

Gather an assortment of yellow, orange, flamingo, turquoise and green cardstock.  Stamp the happy little fish and wavy seaweed  from the Fish Tales Clear Stamp Set with VersaFine Onyx Black.   Heat-set the ink, then diecut the designs  with the matching Fish Tales Die Set. 

Diecut Seaweed Stalks from light green cardstock.

Stamp the greeting - from the Fish Tales Clear Stamp Set - on lime green cardstock.  Cut it with a Rectangle Basics die.

Score, cut and fold a 5-1/2" square white card.  Attach the diecuts and greeting - use foam dots for the bright yellow, orange and turquoise fishes.  Add blue gem stickers.

We'll be using a few of the newest dies and stamps at the May 13th SUMMER HEARTS class at Impress.  We have so many great heart- and love-themed dies, stamps and papers - let's put them to work on summery cards for weddings, thank-yous and cards to say "I'm thinking of you."  See you on Saturday!

Whale Hello There!
by Melissa Rusk

Welcome to day 3 of the Blog Blitz! Today I have a fun card using the new stamp set Whale Hello There! It has so many cute sea creatures and sayings I know you are going to love.

Melissa

For my card today I started by stamping the whale and die cutting him out. He is super cute! I colored him with my Copic Markers in colors C00, C1, C3 and C5. I added some dots with the markers to give him some texture.

Melissa2

Next I die cut the new Pinpoint Circle Frame. I stamped the waves onto the inside circle using a teal ink and my sentiment in black ink under the outside circle. To put the card together, I used a foam tape to glue the outer white circle to the card and then with a regular tape runner I glued the stamped circle to the card. Some more foam tape for the whale and a few sequins finish off the card.

Now for the fun part! Want a chance to win this cute stamp set? Leave a comment to this post by Sunday, May 14th at 11:59pm EST.  One comment will be chosen at random to win the stamp set.  Don't forget to check back during the week.  Each designer post will have its own chance of winning a prize.  Good luck!

A Wildwood Collage Easter Scene
by Jean Okimoto

MemoryBoxWildwoodCollage-MemoryBoxClutchOfEggs-MemoryBoxSpringtimeBunnies-MemoryBoxHalADozenEggs-JeanOkimoto-EasterCards-FeltEasterCards-GlitteredCardstock-ImpressCardsAndCrafts

The new Wildwood Collage fits perfectly onto one of the Half a Dozen Eggs to create a sweet little Easter scene.  Don't you just love it when everything fits together like they were made for each other...and they were!  Hello, Jean Okimoto here, with a fresh spring design for you today.

Are you old enough to remember those precious hollow "window" eggs with the little Easter scenes inside?   That's my inspiration today - let's make a snailmail-able version of those vintage pieces.  Yes, objects from my childhood are now officially "vintage."

MemoryBoxClutchOfEggs-MemoryBoxWildwoodCollage-MemoryBoxHalfADozenEggs-MemoryBoxSpringtimeBunnies-JeanOkimoto-FeltDiecuts-EasterCards-GlitteredEggs

Cut the big egg from the Half a Dozen Eggs set from chartreuse cardstock.  Cut the Wildwood Collage.

Attach adhesive label paper (or a sticker sheet) to white felt and cut Springtime Bunnies.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps adhesives from soaking through the felt.

Cut glittered cardstock eggs using the small Clutch of Eggs dies.

Attach everything to a side-folded A-2 card of lime green cardstock.

Easter's my favorite holiday.  I love the colors, flowers, bunnies and dark chocolate eggs (not necessarily in that order) that  always make it so special, and pretty.    What's your favorite holiday?

Big thanks to everyone who took last weekend's SPRINGTIME IN SEATTLE class at Impress!  It was a chocolate-powered session - and we certainly flew through the cards and treat tote, and even ended ahead of schedule.    Thanks too - Ann and Karen - for helping us fill our baskets with all of the pretty, glittery supplies we need for Easter.

I've added a new special class from 1:00-3:00 this Saturday - it's ASIAN DESIGN...SIMPLY STATED.  We're making 7 cards, including a simple origami butterfly and a bunny with silkscreened artpapers.  It's time to stop saving those beautiful prints and start cutting them into accents, backgrounds and perfect squares for origami with our Memory Box and Poppystamps dies.  

Thanks for stopping by...

Sapling Collage on the Spring Blog Blitz
by Jean Okimoto

 

MemoryBoxSaplingCollage-MemoryBoxSpringtimeBunnies-MemoryBoxClutchOfEggs-MemoryBoxRectangleBasics-JeanOkimoto-EasterCards-FeltBunnyCards-DiecutEasterCards

The new Sapling Collage is one of five fresh woodland scenes that are quickly becoming favorites in the Spring 2017 Collection.  It's easy to see why - they're versatile, great for layering and perfect for every season.  Imagine them later with tiny blossoms in the summer, ghosts and bats in the fall and bright red birds in snowy winter scenes.  

Hello, Jean Okimoto here, welcome back to our blog blitz.   Here's a super-quick Easter card that takes just a few minutes.  The hardest part of it is deciding where to place those glittery eggs!

Cut chartreuse cardstock with the 2-¾" x 4" Rectangle Basics die. Cut the Sapling Collage.  

Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to white felt and cut Springtime Bunnies.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps glue from soaking thru.  

Cut glittered cardstock with Clutch of Eggs.

Attach everything to a top-folded green A-2 card.  That's it!

Watching the World Bloom
by Jean Okimoto

 

MemoryBoxBloomingPeonyStem-MemoryBoxWatchingTheWorldBloom-MemoryBoxRectangleBasics-JeanOkimoto-WatercoloredCards-WatercoloredFlowerCards-ImagineCraftsVersaFine.ImpressCardsAndCrafts

A watercolored Blooming Peony Stem adds a bit of sunshine to any day...especially a winter day!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here, determined to create something to brighten things up a bit.  Any greeting would work here - here's my favorite combination of typestyles,  from the Watching the World Bloom clear stamp set.

P1350763

I have a big stash of watercolored sheets painted with Kaleidacolors and Peerless Watercolors.  I hope this soft combination of yellows and greens promises spring will be here soon.  

Cut Blooming Peony Stem from white and green cardstock.  We're using just the white negative and the green diecut today - say the other pieces for another project.  Trim the white cardstock with the 3" x 4-¼" Rectangle Basics die.  Attach watercolored paper behind the flower cutout.  

Attach a piece of doublestick tape behind the tiny dots in the center of the peony.  Set the peony into the white cardstock background.  Brush gold glitter onto the adhesive in the tiny dots.  

Stamp the greeting onto a scrap of watercolored paper with Olympia Green VersaFine.  Dry the ink and trim the paper.

Attach everything to a top-folded 5-½" square card of pale yellow-green cardstock - use foam dots for the greeting.   Add tiny pale green sequins.

Special thanks to everyone who braved Monday's cold windy rain to take the BIRTHDAY WISHES class at Impress!  I appreciate your rainy drive to Tukwila - and it was great to see those who've been taking my classes since I taught at Rubber Soul 18 years ago.  18 years!  Thanks too, Ann, Shari and Becca - for helping us fill our baskets with everything we needed to make those birthday cards - and get a headstart on spring cards.

Thanks for stopping by today - see you next time!

Plush Folk Hearts and Valentine Wishes
by Jean Okimoto

 

MemoryBoxPlushFolkHearts-MemoryBoxSquareBasicsSet-MemoryBoxGrosgrainRibbons-MemoryBoxHappyBirthdayFriendshipScript-JeanOkimoto-DiecutValentines-StitchedValentines-ImagineCrafts-ImpressCardsAndCrafts

Plush Folk Hearts and a bit of gold create a special card for you...Happy Valentine's Day!  Hello, Jean Okimoto here, with a design that just about created itself as a happy discovery.   The stitch holes on the Plush Folk Hearts made it easy to quickly build this abstract pattern of sparkly gold cord.  

MemoryBoxPlushFolkHearts-MemoryBoxGrosgrainRibbons-MemoryBoxSquareBasicsSet-MemoryBoxHappyBirthdayFriendshipScript-JeanOkimoto-DiecutValentines-StitchedValentines-JeanOkimoto

Cut two of the medium hearts from pink cardstock.  Punch a 3/16" hole - offset to the right.  Sew long stitches from the punched hole out to the diecut holes along the top edge.  Skip some holes along the left bottom edge.  Sew a few more long stitches.  Knot the thread behind the hearts.  

The Plush Folk Hearts set also includes a slightly smaller third heart - without the stitching holes.  It's great for layering and stenciling.

Cut white cardstock with the 4-¼" Square Basics die.  Splatter it lightly with Imagine Crafts Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz - shake the container, then gently tap the bottom of the spritzer tube over the center and left side of the square.  Heat-set the ink.  It's easier to splatter first, then add the other design elements.  

Cut two of the Grosgrain Ribbons from gray cardstock - leave them in the die.  Dry-emboss them for extra texture using the embossing mat and plates required for your machine.  

Attach pink and gold washi tape, the grosgrain ribbon diecuts and the heart to the square.  Attach two layers of adhesive label paper or sticker sheets to gray cardstock and cut the "Happy" from the Happy Birthday Friendship Script set.  Adhesive paper makes it quick and easy to add dimension to the greeting without gluing the layers together.  

Print "valentine's day" with a labelmaker.

Attach everything to a 5-½" square card of white cardstock.

Gold and silver - or the bride's special colors - would transform this into a pretty wedding card too.   Experiment with different stitch patterns - there are so many possibilities!

Special thanks to everyone from last week's BIRTHDAY WISHES class at Impress!  Thanks to Ann, Shari and Karen too - for helping us fill our baskets with everything we wanted - and more.  Who would have guessed there were so many creative ways to use our dies and stamps - way beyond the obvious uses.

Thanks for stopping by...see you again on Thursday!

So Many Things to Love About the Cherub Hearts and Heart Wire
by Jean Okimoto

MemoryBoxSoManyThingsToLove-MemoryBoxCherubHearts-MemoryBoxHeartWire-MemoryBoxPinpointRectangleLayers-JeanOkimoto-PeerlessWatercolors-ImagineCraftsBrilliance-ImpressCardsAndCrafts-WatercoloredValentines

Vibrant colors, a Cherub Heart and the Heart Wire create a quick backdrop for a great stamp from So Many Things to Love.  It seems as though the year just started, but it's almost mid-February.  Are you ready for Valentine's Day?

Hello, Jean Okimoto here, with my last Valentine card from the 2017 collection.  I've paired the classic Cherub Hearts, from a previous release,  with the delicate Heart Wire cut from glittery silver cardstock.  These great design elements aren't just for February 14th - they're perfect for weddings, anniversaries and caring cards for the special people in your life.

MemoryBoxSoManyThingsToLove-MemoryBoxHeartWire-MemoryBoxCherubHearts-MemoryBoxPinpointRectangleLayers-JeanOkimoto-PeerlessWatercolors-ImagineCrafts-WatercoloredValentines

Cut the 2-½" x 3-½" Pinpoint Rectangle from watercolor paper.  Ink a 2" soft rubber brayer with Imagine Crafts Rocket Red Gold Brilliance - then spritz it with water.  Brayer the diluted ink onto the paper and set it aside to dry.

Stamp the smoother side of watercolor paper with the floral heart and VersaMark.  Emboss it with detail white powder.  Paint the paper with Peerless Watercolors.  Dry it, then cut it with the 2.7" x 2.4" Cherub Heart die.  

Cut Heart Wire from silver glittered cardstock.

Attach everything to a side-folded A2 card of watercolor paper - use foam dots to attach the watercolored heart.  Add tiny clear iridescent sequins.

Hope you've been inspired to create special Valentines for friends and family - but don't stash your supplies just yet.  There are so many ways to use these versatile dies and stamps from throughout the year.

Special thanks to everyone from last weekend's SIMPLY ASIAN class at Impress.  I loved sharing my ideas and techniques with you  - and even surprised myself by finding so many Memory Box and Poppystamps products that were great for our contemporary Asian cards.  Thanks too - Ann and Erin - for keeping us well-supplied throughout the morning.  

See you again on Saturday the 11th - we're celebrating with colorful, technique-y cards for your favorite birthday guys and gals.  Because birthdays happen!

Thanks for stopping by...

Frame the Adler Star Collage with a Cherub Heart
by Jean Okimoto

 

MemoryBoxAdlerStarCollage-MemoryBoxOpenStudioCherubHearts-MemoryBoxSmileClearStamps-MemoryBoxRectangleBasics-JeanOkimoto-ImagineCrafts-DiecutValentines

Create a simple Valentine with the Adler Star Collage in a Cherub Heart Frame - then add a greeting, some sequins - and your card is ready!  Hello - Jean Okimoto here - with a bit of inspiration for our February Challenge.  It's all about clean and simple "love" cards - and with the big day just 12 days away clean and simple is the way to go!  

The Adler Star Collage adds a edgy, faceted look to the classic Cherub Heart.  It's sandwiched between layers of black and red cardstock.  The Rectangle Basics make it easy to cut the perfect layers without any tedious measuring.

MemoryBoxCherubHearts-MemoryBoxAdlerStarCollage-JeanOkimoto

Cut a 2.3" x 1.9" Cherub Heart from black cardstock - leave a generous margin of cardstock to create a frame.  Save the negative.  Cut Adler Star Collage from another piece of black cardstock.  

MemoryBoxRectangleBasics-MemoryBoxAdlerStarCollage-MemoryBoxCherubHearts-JeanOkimoto

Place the Cherub Heart negative over the collage and temporarily tape the layers of cardstock together.  Attach the back of the negative to the sides of the collage.    Cut through both layers with the 2-¼" x 3-½" Rectangle Basics die.  

Cut a red cardstock rectangle to fit behind the heart.

Stamp LOVE - from the Smile Clear Stamps Set - on red cardstock with Imagine Crafts Tuxedo Black Memento Luxe.  Emboss it with detail black powder to add a bit of shine and dimension.  Cut it with the 1/3/4" x ¾" Rectangle Basics die. 

Attach everything to a 3-¾" x 7-78" card of textured white cardstock - use foam dots for the greeting.  Add light gold sequins.

MemoryBoxAdlerStarCollage-MemoryBoxCherubHearts-MemoryBoxRectangleBasics-MemoryBoxSmileClearStampSet-JeanOkimoto-ImagineCrafts-MementoLuxe-DiecutValentines

Keep it simple - and easily-assembled!  You'll discover that many of the Memory Box dies create the perfect cutouts to frame our delicate collages and add dimension.   Bold colors and shiny accents add the finishing touch.

Big Thanks to everyone from last week's LOVE...Simply Stated class at Impress.  Thanks Ann, Karen and Erin - for helping us find the products we need for great Valentines.  

See you at this weekend's SIMPLY ASIAN class at Impress.  We're making six Asian-inspired cards - one of them features a simple origami bird I created for the class.   

Thanks for stopping by...see you again next week!
