Tricks, treats and the new Equal Triangle Clear Stamps are ready for Halloween...are you?  Hello again, Jean Okimoto here with a simple treat wrapper for your favorite little tricksters.

MemoryBoxCoolCat-MemoryBoxCrouchingCat-MemoryBoxWhimsyCat-MemoryBoxFriendlyGhosts,MemoryBoxStitchedBumpBorder-MemoryBoxEqualTriangleClearStamps-JeanOkimoto-VersaFineClair

Who would have thought the Stitched Bump Border die could be used for a trio of candy wrappers?

 

MemoryBoxStitchedBumpBorder-MemoryBoxCoolCat-MemoryBoxCrouchingCat-MemoryBoxEqualTriangleClearStamps-JeanOkimoto

Trim 8-½" x 11" white cardstock to 8" x 11".  Score and fold it lengthwise at 4" and cut it into two 4"x 5-½" pieces.  Place the Stitched Bump Border die just below cut edges and cut through both layers of each half.   Score both sides of the folded cardstock ¼" away from the original 4" scoreline.  

Cut it into three sections of varying widths.  

Stamp them with random, overlapping layers of the cool triangles and diamonds from the Equal Triangle Clear Stamps Set with Sunshine and Nocturne VersaFine Clair.  This combination of stamps and inks creates crisp, sharp images.  The vibrant inks take a few seconds to dry - then look artsy and dimensional with very little effort.  

Fold the bottoms along the scorelines to create a ½" wide base.  Punch a hole through the top.  

Diecut Cool Cat, Crouching Cat, Whimsy Cat and Friendly Ghosts.  Attach scraps of orange cardstock behind the Crouching Cat's and Whimsy Cat's eyes.

Use doublestick tape or a glue dot to attach the candy inside the wrapper.   Two pieces of Miniature KitKats will fit in the widest wrapper.  Tie the tops with orange tulle.  Fold the ends of the tulle together lengthwise and trim it at a sharp angle for a zig-zaggy edge.

Halloween candies come in a wide range of shapes and sizes.  Stitch Bump Borders is perfect for that because it cuts the top edge and lets you adjust the height of the treat wrapper. Make some wrappers with your favorite candy.  Don't wait till the 31st - share them with co-workers now or tuck them into family lunches for a sweet surprise.  Then go out and buy more candy!

Thanks for visiting - have fun with this project!  Enjoy randomly layering the stamps - no rules about composition, white space or visual balance here.  

Looking forward to seeing everyone at Impress on Saturday.  We're making five Halloween cards and a treat wrapper in the STASH CARDS - FRIGHTFUL AND DELIGHTFUL class at 10:30.  Then it's COLORS OF CHRISTMAS at 1:30.

Cool Cat, Friendly Ghosts and Cheers to the 2018 Holiday Happenings Release by Jean Okimoto

MemoryBoxCoolCat-MemoryBoxFriendlyGhosts-MemoryBoxCheersJottedScript-MemoryBoxLookingForMrRightTriangleClearStamps-JeanOkimoto-VersaFineClair-ImagineCrafts-MemoryBoxCoDiecuts-ImpressCardsAndCrafts

Meet the new 2018 Holiday Happenings release - Friendly Ghosts, Cool Cat and Looking for Mr. Right Triangles are here today!  Hi everyone, Jean Okimoto here with the first of many triangle designs from the latest release.

They're my favorite shape - and perfect for backgrounds, pennants, landscapes and contemporary design elements.  We have three new triangle clear stamps and coordinating die sets and can't wait to share our ideas with you.

MemoryBoxCoolCat-MemoryBoxFriendlyGhosts-MemoryBoxCocktailHour-MemoryBoxLookingForMrRightTriangleClearStamps-VersaFineClair-JeanOkimoto-MemoryBox2018HolidayHappenings

 

Although the stamps are great basic backgrounds they're also designed for layering.  Both the solid and detailed stamps work perfectly with the VersaFine Clair inkpads.  Stamp bright orange Summertime and green Verdant backgrounds.  Add the striped overlay details with Nocturne.  Everything goes directly onto a side-folded Kraft A-2 card.

Cut the sophisticated Cool Cat from black cardstock.  Cut two of the Friendly Ghosts from watercolor paper. Use the pokey tool to make the small ghost's eyes just a teeny bit wider.  

Wondering why the Clutch of Eggs die is shown above?  It's the perfect size and shape for cutting black cardstock to layer behind the ghosts for eyes - and orange cardstock for Cool Cat's eyes.

Cut the detailed and background Cheers from orange and black cardstock.

Cut the little Cocktail Hour glasses from orange and black cardstock.  Layer the diecuts so they (sort of) match the layering of the Cheers Jotted Script set.

Special thanks to everyone from last weekend's PAPERSTYLE 2019 calendar or notecard class at Impress!  Hope you like the 12 designs we created and will be making the calendar or notecard sets for someone on your holiday giftlist.  Thanks too - Ann, Karen and Lynn - for helping us find the perfect supplies for our projects!

See you  again on Saturday...

Tape Too Challenge Inspiration with Studio Hexagon Layers and Awesome Jotted Script by Jean Okimoto

 

P1060640

Bright washi tape-covered Studio Hexagon Layers create a quick card for someone who's simply awesome.  A change of colors would make this a guy-card too.  Hi everyone, Jean Okimoto here with a Tape Too Challenge inspiration card today.

Unlike everyone with bins full of washi tape - my entire washi tape stash barely fills a little 8" square cakepan. That doesn't stop me from designing cards with them - I love their bright colors and convenience.  Mix, match and layer strips of tape over white cardstock.  The pink and orange patterns are Scotch Expressions tape.  The wide pink tape - also used for the greeting - is Scotch Expressions masking tape.

Cut three hexagons from the taped cardstock using the three smallest Studio Hexagon Layers.  Diecutting creates those smooth, crisp edges we love - and presses the tapes firmly onto the cardstock.  

P1060624

Attach a strip of pink masking tape to a scrap of white cardstock and diecut the delicate "awesome."  Cut the bold "awesome" background from light gray cardstock.

Stamp "you are simply"  - from the Birch Press Design Best Friend Clear Stamps Set - onto a side-folded white A-2 card with VersaFine Clair Nocturne.   Quickly emboss it with detail clear powder.

Assemble the card.  Add pink gem stickers.

P1060650

Thanks for visiting - hope you're entering our September "Tape Too" challenge.  Details are listed here.  

We've added another GREETINGS FROM BIRCH PRESS class on Saturday September 8th - hope you can join us if you weren't able to attend the previous class.  We're making 3 holiday cards and 3 any-occasion cards featuring Birch Press Design dies and stamps, and artpapers from Shizen Design.

Birthday Jotted Script, Grassland Collage and Goldfish Collage by Jean Okimoto

Celebrate a summer birthday with the new Birthday Jotted Script - and some favorites from the Memory Box Collection of dies and stamps.  The new layered Jotted Script die sets - Birthday, Wonderful, Thanks and Awesome - are more than just the greetings.  The fresh typestyle and bold background become design elements themselves.

Hello, happy weekend, Jean Okimoto here.  After a week of separate internet, phone and email outages it's nice to create something handmade, with no chance of failure.   Just place the Memory Box die on the cardstock and roll it through  the machine for great results, every time!  Without resets, passwords or error messages.

Cut black cardstock with the 4" x 5-¼" Rectangle Basics die.  Cut Grassland Collage.  Trim the rectangle with one edge of the 4-¼" x 5-½" Rectangle Basics die.  No measuring or guessing required.

Attach red duct tape to a scrap of cardstock and cut Goldfish Collage.  You'll have a pile of textured, glossy red fish ready for summer and fall projects.

Cut a silver and black screenprint moon with the 1-¼" Circle Basics die.

Cut Birthday Jotted Script from red and black cardstock.  Quickly - before it gets lost - attach the little red dot for the "i" onto the black background.  

Stamp the HAPPY portion of the greeting from the Spring Lilacs Clear Stamps Set on red cardstock with VersaFine Claire Nocturne.

Attach everything to an A-2 card of recycled Kraft cardstock.

Butterfly Spectacle and Wrapped Stitch Rectangles by Jean Okimoto

The Butterfly Spectacle joins a group of favorite dies on today's card - like butterflies prepping for a summer reunion.  I love how Memory Box dies can be mixed and mingled into endless combinations.  Hi there, Jean Okimoto here with another quick card for you.

MemoryBoxButterflySpectacle-MemoryBoxButterflyEnsemble-MemoryBoxMorningGardenButterflies-MemoryBoxWrappedStitchRectangles-MemoryBoxButterflies-MemoryBoxButterflyCards-ButterflyCards-DiecutButterflyCards-JeanOkimoto

Cut natural cardstock with the 4-¼" x 5-½" Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die.  Cut it with Butterfly Spectacle.  Cut the Bouquet handmade paper - from Birch Press Design - with three butterflies from the Butterfly Ensemble set.  It's such a pretty print, with so many options!

Cut the the matching antennae/center sections - from the Morning Garden Butterflies set - from gold glitter paper.  I've used just a tiny portion of the large (21-½" x 30" sheet!) gold glitter paper from Impress.  It supplies many, many of these delicate little pieces...and a lot more!

Attach the diecuts to an A-2 card of natural cardstock.

Stamp the greeting - from the Open Studio Garden Sketches Clear Stamp Set - on a scrap of natural cardstock with VersaFine Clair Charming Pink.  Quickly emboss it with detail clear powder.  Attach it with foam dots.

Add pale turquoise gem stickers.

Experiment with the dies in your Memory Box collection.  You'll be amazed at how many different ways you can use them - as intended - or in creative, outside-the-box ways that Dave probably didn't expect.  That's what we'll be doing in our BEYOND THE BOX Memory Box class at Impress on May 28th.  Join us if you're in the Seattle area and have the day off for Memorial Day, or if you're visiting that weekend.   

Thanks for visiting...have a great weekend and I'll see you again next week!

Feathered Friends and Swooping Branches and Leaves by Jean Okimoto

A felt owl from the Feathered Friends Deep Edge Dies delivers a bright  greeting here today.  Coordinate them with the perfect printed and embossed papers from Birch Press for more texture and zingy color.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a birthday design for spring and summer celebrations.

MemoryBoxFeatheredFriendsDeepEdgeDies-MemoryBoxSwoopingBranchesAndLeaves-MemoryBoxRectangleBasics-MemoryBoxOpenStudioSpringLilacs-JeanOkimoto-VersaFineClair-MemoryBoxDiecutCards-DiecutFeltCards-DiecutFeltBirds

Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to fuchsia felt and diecut the Feathered Friends owl.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps adhesives from soaking through.  Cut the face from natural cardstock.  

Cut the eyes and beak - from orange cardstock.  Color the eye circles with a black marker.

Cut the branch - from the Swooping Branches and Leaves Deep Edge dies set - from  recycled cardboard.

The gold embossed paper and bright leafprint are from Birch Press Design.  They quickly add bright splashes of color and earthy texture to the design.  Cut them with the 2" x 3-¼" and 1-¾" x 3" dies from the Rectangle Basics set.  Cut the wing from the embossed paper too.

Stamp the greeting from the Spring Lilacs Clear Stamp Set on an A-6 (4-½" x 6-¼") card of natural cardstock with Charming Pink VersaFine Clair.  Quickly emboss it with detail clear powder.

Assemble the card.  Add dark pink gem stickers.  I love how the leaves match the shape of the owl and wing...little things like that make me so happy!

The Deep Edge Dies are timesavers for quilting and fabric arts because they cut thru multiple layers of fabric and are specially made to easily release the diecut pieces.  Of course you can use them for cardstock - and handmade artpapers that can sometimes be challenging to cut.

Set a Garden Scene with the Glorious Floral Stem by Jean Okimoto

P1040384

The Glorious Floral Stem sets the scene for an afternoon of spring gardening with the Vintage Watering Can and Stitched Boots.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a garden greeting today.

Cut watercolor paper with the  3" x 4-¼" Rectangle Basics die.  Paint in shades of green, yellow and orange from the Melon Melody Kaleidacolor inkpad.  Spritz it with water, dry it for a few minutes, then heat-set with an embossing tool.

Stamp the flowers from the Garden Sketches Clear Stamps Set on watercolor ink with Nocturne VersaFine Clair.  Quickly emboss it with detail clear powder.  Place the die from the matching Garden Sketches Die Set over the image and sponge it with Cheerful VersaFine Clair.  Diecut it, and two more.

Cut Glorious Floral Stem from green cardstock, remove the flowers.

Cut Vintage Watering Can from copper metallic cardstock.

Attach glossy laminate over Key Lime Dots cardstock to create a shiny surface for the rainboots.  Diecut it with Stitched Rainboots.

Stamp the greeting from the Garden Sketches set with Nocturne and emboss it.  Cut it with the matching die.

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded A-2 card of green textured cardstock.

Add yellow-green gem stickers.

P1040386

Mix and match your Memory Box stamps and dies as we did here - it gives you so many additional options for unique cards.  Use your supplies in out-of-the box ways - you'll be surprised at how many combinations you'll discover!

Special thanks for everyone who took last Sunday's GREEN GREETINGS class.  Recycling can be a creative way to add texture, dimension and interest to your cards.  Thanks too - Ann and Becca - for helping everyone fill their baskets and take advantage of last weekend's spring sale.

Forget Me Not Blooms, Garden Sketches and Wrapped Stitch Rectangles
by Jean Okimoto

Let's make some bright, glossy Forget Me Not Blooms with a VersaFine Clair inkpad for a quick accent on a colorful thank you card.  It's an easy, economical way to customize matching accents for spring and summer cards.  

Hello, Jean Okimoto here tonight - on my 500th post here on Outside the Box.  No, I didn't really count them, but Typepad does.  This card was created to thank you for visiting our blog - and for all of your sweet and thoughtful comments.  I appreciate them - and you (!) - and hope you've been inspired to get the most from your personal Memory Box Collection of dies, stamps and papers.

MemoryBoxForgetMeNotBlooms-MemoryBoxWrappedStitchRectangles-MemoryBoxOpenStudioGardenSketches-VersaFineClair-Kaleidacolors-ImagineCrafts

Brayer vibrant orange Summertime VersaFine Clair onto smooth white cardstock.  Quickly heat-emboss it with clear powder.  Emboss the warm ink again with another layer of clear powder.  Diecut several sets of the flowers from the Forget Me Not Blooms from the cooled embossed cardstock.  They'll be glossy and bright, and great for layering onto the card.

Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to green cardstock and cut the Forget Me Not Blooms stem.  The paper backing adds dimension - without the tedious layering and glueing of multiple pieces.  

Press the inks from the Kaleidacolor Melon Melody inkpad onto a large acrylic block.  Spritz watercolor paper with water, then paint it in loose, overlapping layers of ink.  Air-dry it, then spritz it with water.  Dry it with a heat-tool.  Diecut it with the 2"x3-¼" Wrapped Stitch Rectangle.

Cut white cardstock with the 2-¾" x 4" Wrapped Stitch Rectangle.

Stamp the greeting - from the Open Studio Garden Sketches Clear Stamps Set - with Green Oasis VersaFine Clair.   Emboss it with detail clear powder. Cut it with the banner design from the coordinating Garden Sketches Die Set.

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded white A-2 card - use foam dots for the greeting.  Add lime green gem stickers.

Think of all the glossy, bright accents  you can create with Memory Box dies and embossed VersaFine Clairs!  Flowers, butterflies, leaves, fishes, hearts, stars, hexagons, dots - and more.  Be sure to have your embossing powder and heat-tool ready - the Clairs dry pretty quickly.  

BIG THANKS  for stopping by - today, and for the previous 499 posts.  I appreciate your visits - and the privilege of designing for Memory Box.  Thanks Dave and Monica!

Bee Yourself Hexies Card
by Anne Thompson

Hexagons are everywhere on today's card--inside and out!  

IMG_0467

IMG_0469

  • To fill in the holes left from cutting the hexies, I cut two pieces of the squash dot paper 5 1/4" X 4", glued them together with the dot sides out, and then adhered them to the inside of the card front.  One dotted side filled in the hexies and the other dotted side lines the inside of the card front.

Here's the inside.  I love that there is a surprise when you open the card and find the bee inside!

IMG_0464

  • For the righthand side of the notecard, I die cut a hexagon from the STUDIO HEXAGON LAYERS 30073 using more of the squash dot paper and glued it to the card.  
  • I die cut the INTRICATE BEE 99920 from black cardstock and adhered it to the hexagon.
  • I stamped "bee yourself" from the Bee Yourself Clear Stamp Set on one edge of the hexagon.

IMG_0470

I still have plenty of room to write a message or I can add a white box for a longer message over the dot paper that lines the inside front.  

Happy Crafting!

Forget Me Not Blooms, Grass Stitched Circle Frame and Garden Sketches by Jean Okimoto

Let's scatter some Forget Me Not Blooms flowertops across the Grass Stitched Circle Frame for a fresh spring greeting.  A Garden Sketches greeting banner, glittery Wink of Stella highlights and gem stickers add pretty accents.  

Hello, Jean Okimoto here with the details behind my April Floral Challenge inspiration card.  It's great to go through my stash of watercolored papers and find just the right colors for a background.  Imagine Crafts Kaleidacolor dye ink refills were used here.  Add a few dotty accents in Brilliance Pearlescent Jade with a design from the Open Studio Bird Sanctuary Clear Stamp Set.  Cut it with the 2-¾" Square Basics die.

Cut a bunch of flowers from the Forget Me Not Blooms set from scraps of the watercolored paper.  The little blossoms aren't attached to the stems - it's quick and easy to cut them separately, without the delicate stems.

Stamp the greeting from the Garden Sketches Clear Stamp Set on the ultra-smooth Bright White Cardstock from Impress with Memento Grape Jelly.  Dry the ink, then cut it with the matching Garden Sketches die.  We love this smooth white cardstock for stamping, diecutting and crisp white cards!

Cut Grass Stitched Circle Frame from the same Bright White Cardstock.  

Attach two strips of Pastel Purple washi tape - one of the many pretty colors and patterns from Birch Press Designs - to a side-folded A-2 card of...yes, Bright White Cardstock.  Attach the diecuts - use foam dots for the greeting.

Highlight the flower centers with clear glittered Wink of Stella.  Add light purple gem stickers.
