An altered Radiant Frame becomes the summer sun shining on a trio of the Elegant Shorebirds today.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here, with a bright outdoor scene under a brilliant sun.  Wishful thinking, snowflakes and winter pastels just couldn't cool things off.  Let's accept the heat and smoky skies ...and create a summer card to cheer things up!

P1010320

Cut a portion of the Radiant Frame from yellow cardstock.  Trim it with the 2-1/2" Circle Basics die.  Cut off the remaining straight edge of the frame.

Attach adhesive label paper to flamingo-colored cardstock and diecut Elegant Shorebirds.  The layer label paper adds a bit of dimension to the birds.  

Cut Shizen Design Deckled Watercolor Paper with the 1-3/4"  x 3" Rectangle Basics die - position the die to retain a short deckled edge.  

Sponge worn lipstick, fossilized amber and a tiny amount of peeled paint Distress Oxides onto the watercolor paper.  Blend the colors with a waterbrush, then heat-set the inks.  The different colors settle randomly into the rough surface of the paper and create a shadowy, textured background.

P1010329

Attach everything to a top-folded A-2 card of natural cardstock.  Add gold gem stickers.

Big thanks to everyone from last weekend's SIMPLY ASIAN  class at Impress!  The Memory Box, Open Studio and Poppystamps collections have so many dies that are perfect for the Asian theme.  If you love origami - the Square Basics set is a must for perfect folds.  Rectangle Basics and Circle Basics are great for cutting those beautiful silkscreened artpapers in your stash too.  Special thanks too - Ann, Shari and Erin - for filling our baskets with the tools and supplies we needed.

If you're in the Seattle area - join us for two AC-d classes at Impress on August 12th.  It's PAPER PLEASE from 11:00-1:00 - using our favorite dies with the vibrant handmade cotton-fiber papers from Shizen Design.  We'll be using the just-received rough-textured deckle-edge watercolor paper from Shizen Design too!

An added class - NEW MEMORY BOX CHRISTMAS COLLECTION CARDS - follows that from 2:00-4:00 on the 12th.  Make 6 cards featuring the latest and greatest from Memory Box, Open Studio and Poppystamps.  Lots of techniques, Distress Oxides, special folds, cutouts and glitter!

Thanks very much for stopping by - keep cool and carry on!

Mix and match the new Piccolo Snowflakes and Stitched Piccolo Snowflakes as a sparkly trio on a Wrapped Stitch Rectangle background.  Glitter makes it better, and sequins add the finishing touch!  Hello, Jean Okimoto here, with a simple design in frosty winter pastels.

I found a pretty little scrap of Distress Oxide-painted watercolor paper in my stash and cut it with the 1-1/2" x 2-3/4" Rectangle Basics die.  Dry-emboss it with the smallest Wrapped Stitch Rectangle. 

MemoryBoxWrappedSticheRectangles-EmbossingWithDies-DryEmbossingWithDies-DryEmbossingWithThePlatinum-JeanOkimoto

Here's the stacking sequence I used on my Platinum - platform, die face-up, watercolor paper face-down, tan embossing mat, purple embossing plate.  The dry-embossed Wrapped Stitch Rectangle creates a subtle stitched frame on the background.   It's a nice way to add texture without competing with main design elements like snowflakes.

Diecut the snowflakes from silver, aqua and pink glittered cardstock.  

Stamp "believe" - from the Making Spirits Bright Clear Stamp Set - on a top-folded white A-2 card with Brilliance Pearlescent Jade.  

Add the diecuts and small silver sequins.

A simple, basic layout like this works throughout the year.  Try it with various sizes of hearts, stars, butterflies or flowers - and  ghosts in October.  I'm always looking for ways to simplify my life and save time.  This will be a go-to template for other cards I'll be designing for you.

If you're in the Seattle area, join us for another SIMPLY ASIAN class at Impress on August 5th.  We'll make 7 Asian-inspired cards with beautiful silkscreened artpapers, dies and great techniques.  Enjoy the AC - and your 10% class discount on a great selection of Memory Box, Open Studio and Poppystamps products - and everything else on your wishlist!

Thanks a bunch for stopping by.  Keep cool, think snowflakes and winter pastels - even here in Seattle, with sunny skies and highs around 100.

The new Snowy Pine Oval, glittery Piccolo Snowflakes and gem stickers create a frosty winter scene - a cool illusion on a hot summer day!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here, with a "medium" card - not too simple, not too complicated, something in between.

MemoryBoxSnowyPineOval-MemoryBoxPiccoloSnowflakes-MemoryBoxBlessedToKnowYouClearStamps-MermoryBoxStitchedOvalLayers-JeanOkimoto-MemoryBoxChristmasCards-DiecutChristmasCards-WatercoloredDiecuts-DistressOxideBackgrounds

Start off by sponging broken china, cracked pistachio and wilted violet Distress Oxides onto watercolor paper.  Spritz it lightly - and from about 12" away - to blend the inks.  Heat-set it.  Cut it with the 4-3/8" tall Stitched Oval.  

Diecut Snowy Pine Oval from textured white cardstock.  

Diecut two of the Piccolo Snowflakes from pale blue glittered cardstock.

Stamp "CHRISTMAS WISHES" - from the new Blessed to Know You Clear Stamp Set - onto a 5-1/2" square card with Brilliance Pearlescent Jade.

Assemble the card and add lavender gem stickers.  Maybe it was pretty easy after all!

Square cards require extra postage - but the holidays are so special, and so are the friends and relatives we create our cards for.  

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

Glittered New Piccolo Snowflake Ornament
by Jean Okimoto


MemoryBoxHoliday2017-MemoryBoxPiccoloSnowflakeOrnament-MemoryBoxMillbrookOrnament-MemoryBoxClassicOrnament-MemoryBoxRectangleBasics-JeanOkimoto-PeerlessWatercolored-WatercoloredChristmasCards-WatercoloredBackgroundCards-GlitteredDiecuts-GlitteredOrnaments

Looking for more holiday designs featuring our 2017 Holiday Collection?  A background of Peerless Watercolors creates a special setting for the versatile new Piccolo Snowflake Ornament.  It's delicately contemporary and so easy to cut from glittered cardstock.  The cap and hanger - from the Millbrook Ornament set - add the finishing touch!

Hello again - Jean Okimoto here - with another simple Christmas design that's great for mass-production.  

Cut watercolor paper with the 2-1/2" x 3-3/4" Rectangle Basics die.  Diecut Piccolo Snowflake Ornament from your favorite glittered cardstock, then paint a coordinating background of Peerless Watercolors with a flat paintbrush or waterbrush.   Diecut a 2-1/4" x 3-1/2" rectangle from a portion of a Pool Notecard.  

Cut the solid Classic Ornament background from  the Pool Notecard.  Cut the Millbrook Ornament caps and the hanger from gold mirrored cardstock.  Assemble the ornament - sandwich the top of the Piccolo Snowflake Ornament between the two layers of the Millbrook Ornament caps.  

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded A-2 card of watercolor paper.  Add gold gem stickers.

P1010174

I like mass-producing cards that are a little different each time.  Variations in the watercolored background keep this design from being too repetitive - and it looks great in so many color combos.  Try it in pink/coral/orange - or frosty shades of blue.  

Thanks for stopping by - see you again on Saturday.   No classes for me this weekend - I'm working on designs for my next class at Impress - Simply Asian on August 5th.

Merry Christmas From the Pine Tree State
by Anne Thompson

Greetings from Maine, the Pine Tree State!  And welcome to Day Two of our Design Team Blog Blitz!!!  We'll be focused this week on sharing our ideas for using the newest dies just released from Memory Box.  Remember that leaving comments on the blog posts enters you to win some of the new fabulous goodies!  Be sure to leave your comments by Sunday July 23 at 11:59 PM EST.  We love to hear from you!

Because Maine's state flower is the pine cone and tassel, our state bird is the chickadee, and I live in the Pine Tree State, I just had to use some of the new dies to make a Maine-themed Christmas card.  I used the PINECONE COLLAGE Die 99793, the SNOWY PINE Die 99835, the LARGE SENTIMENTAL MERRY CHRISTMAS Die 99804 and one of the birds from the BIRD SANCTUARY Clear Stamps Set CL5201 and the coordinating die from the BIRD SANCTUARY Die Set 32201.

  IMG_3696

To make this card, I began by cutting the Pinecone Collage into a piece of kraft cardstock and then backed it with a darker brown cardstock.  I used one of the rectangles from the Rectangles Basic Set to cut out both layers before adhering this piece to a cream notecard.  I then cut a Snowy Pine from dark green cardstock, painted it with diluted white Reeves watercolor paint, and lined it up along the side of the pinecone piece and glued it both to the pinecone piece and the notecard front.  I then stamped the bird on the branch from the Bird Sanctuary stamp set using Archival Jet Black ink on watercolor paper.  I colored the bird using very diluted Reeves watercolors and then cut it out using the coordinating die.  I used foam dimensional dots to place the bird just above the pinecone tassel.  I cut the Merry Christmas from the same dark green cardstock I used for the tree and glued it to the card front.  I added a green enamel dot on the "i".

Because you know that I never just make one card, I decided to make a set of cards that I can package up as a gift for a friend.  I used the TALL PINE die 99848 along with the Pinecone Collage, the same small bird from the Bird Sanctuary Clear Stamps set and the coordinating die from the Bird Sanctuary die set.

Card 1:

IMG_3686 (3)

Here I used the same techniques as on the Christmas card, using the Tall Pine as the tree cut from dark green cardstock.  I used Memento Rich Cocoa ink to stamp the sentiment from the Bird Sanctuary stamp set.  

Card 2:

IMG_3683 (1)

For this card, I began by cutting the Pinecone Collage into the front of the notecard and then backed that with dark brown cardstock.  I saved the tassel piece that punched out and watercolored it placing it behind the pop-dotted watercolored bird.

Card 3:

IMG_3684 (2)

Here I die cut the Pinecone Collage from the same dark green paper as the Tall pine, cut it with one of the Stitched Ovals, leaving the green tassel in place and backed it with a textured brown paper cut with the same oval die.  I used foam dots to pop it onto the card.  One pop-dot behind the bird's wing and some glue behind his head kept him level.  

Card 4:

IMG_3685 (1)


For this last card, I stamped the bird onto the card front using Archival Jet Black Ink and colored it with Memento markers, Desert Sand and London Fog.  I cut the Pinecone Collage twice, once in dark brown cardstock and once in dark green.  I cut the Pinecone Collage and Kraft cardstock oval of the same size using one of the Stitched Ovals dies.  I glued the two layers together a bit off and inlaid just the green tassel.  

The more I look at these cards, the more ideas I get!  I'm thinking about Dave's glitter technique and some sparkly copper glitter behind the pinecone cut-outs for my next card. What would you do with these dies?

Please leave comments for me below and you could win the Pinecone Collage die!!!  Scroll down to see Laura's introductory post from Monday and check back each day for more from the Design Team.  Happy Crafting!

Sentimental Iris Clusters in Watercolor
by Anne Thompson

For today's post I used the SENTIMENTAL IRIS Clear Stamp Set CL 5202 and my Kuretake watercolors.  

IMG_3668

Remember last Monday when I told you that I had cut my iris stamp to separate it from the leaves?  I did that because I wanted to create clusters of iris blossoms without stems getting in the way.  And because I layered irises I also created some masks by stamping two of the irises on regular cardstock and cut them out with my small detail scissors.  

IMG_3648

I stamped all of my images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on watercolor paper.  You can tell from the photo above that I used the masks again and again as I stamped the clusters of blooms.  Then I added a few stems where I thought they fit best.  Once I finished painting I set them aside to dry.  Then I used a variety of shape dies to cut them out and to cut dot papers shapes just a wee bit larger to mount them on: squares from the Studio Square Layers dies 30021; rectangles from the Rectangle Basic Set 30086; and ovals from the Stitched Oval Layers dies 30069.

IMG_3662

Once the irises were attached to their dot papers I looked through my cards and chose colors that I felt would highlight the flowers--yellow Sweet Corn, a lovely lavender, a soft blue, and yellow-green Lettuce.

IMG_3664

The irises in my yard have gone by already but I couldn't resist taking a picture of the cards on the stone bench by my gardens on a sunny summer afternoon.   Have you gotten your Sentimental Iris stamps and dies yet?  I LOVE LOVE LOVE mine!!!

Happy Crafting!

Watercolor Bird Plus MISTI Tutorial
by Laura Fulcher

IMG_0229

Greetings friends.  I am back again watercoloring one of the new clear stamp sets from Memory Box.  This time I used the Bird Sanctuary set with coordinating dies.  As I did with my previous post, I colored my central image with some Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers as well as a waterbrush to soften the colors.  Here is a close up of the bird:

IMG_0233

For the rest of the card, I cut a large white circle using the one of the nesting Circle Layers dies as well as green foliage using the Tall Fern Left Corner and Tall Fern Right corner dies.  For the sky, I used a cloud template and sponged some Tumbled Glass Distress ink to give the impression of the sky with clouds.  Finally, I added my sentiment from the same stamp set, added a few sequins and popped up the bird with some foam tape. 

I wanted to do a mini tutorial about how to line up stamp with coordinating dies.  Everyone has their own method, but I thought I would show you step by step what I do.

I start by cutting a piece of cardstock in half and then die cutting the dies from my coordinating set.  I usually cut all of the dies, even if I am not using all of the images for my current project.  After all, if you have the die cutting machine out, why not cut extra?

Pict8

In picture 1, you can see my MISTI stamp positioner.  I set aside all the birds I cut in the die cutting machine and took my half sheet of paper that had the negative space of the birds and placed it in the MISTI.

Pict7

In Picture 2, I placed the coordinating stamps in the bird shaped holes of my template I had in the MISTI.  It helps to stand up over your MISTI as you do this so that you can look straight down and move the stamps around until they are centered in each of the holes.

Shut the MISTI cover and press down so that all of your clear stamps stick to the MISTI lid.

Pict6

Picture 3- when you open the MISTI lid, you will see your template on the left with the bird shaped holes in the paper, and on the right hand side, you will have the stamps that are stuck to the lid.

Pict5

Picture 4- place your die cut birds back into the bird shaped holes of your template and ink your stamps with whatever ink you choose.  In this case, I used black Versafine since I would be watercoloring my images.

Pict4

Picture 5- close the MISTI lid and stamp the birds onto the bird die cuts.  If you don't get a clean image, reink the birds and stamp again.  I like to use the MISTI because I often have to stamp my images more than once when I am stamping on watercolor paper.

Pict3

Picture 6- Optional...  cut out lots of birds and keep repeating the process.  The step that takes the longest is making sure your stamps are centered in your template with the bird shaped holes.  Once you get everything lined up, it makes sense to stamp a bunch to have on hand when you need to make a quick card.  I usually cut a bunch and have them ready to color.

Pict2

Picture 7- I don't usually color images in advance because I don't know what colors I will want to use in the future.  However, I sometimes sit in front of the tv and get in a coloring zone.  I went ahead and colored the birds in an assortment of colors.

Pict1

Picture 8- For storage, I use a clear pocket from Avery Elle and load it with the stamps, the dies, and all of my cut images.  I do that so that I don't lose any of the small pieces and I can easily find what I am looking for.

I hope this tutorial helped.  Let me know if you have any questions or if I didn't explain something very well.

Watercolor Iris
by Laura Fulcher

IMG_0223

Greetings friends.   I hope you are doing something fun this weekend, perhaps even a little stamping!  For my card today, I wanted to share the new Sentimental Iris stamp set with coordinating dies.  The stamp set is rather nice because it also includes butterflies as well as everyday occasion sentiments such as "get well soon" and "just a note."  I chose the friendship sentiment because I have a friend who absolutely loves irises, and this card is for her.

Irises can be so many different colors.  I chose to go with the purple colors we get in are yard.  Here is a close up of the iris as well as the colors of Zig Clean Brush Markers I used:

IMG_0224

 I started with watercolor paper stamped with black Versafine ink and then outlined the edges of each petal with one of the Zig markers.  I then took a waterbrush and colored each petal towards the center of the flower.  As you move away from the outside edge of the flower with a waterbrush, you will notice the color getting lighter and lighter and will end up with a gradient of color.  If the color isn't getting lighter fast enough, wipe off your waterbrush onto a paper towel to get rid of any extra paint and continue with a clean brush.

In the center of the card, I used the Pinpoint Circle Frame die to cut out a window.  The sentiment is on the inside of the card and all the watercolored images are glued to the outside.  The circle frame is nice because it adds a subtle dotted ring about anything you choose to highlight on your card.  In the final picture, you can see the window a bit better as well as the detail of the pinpoint frame:

Have a great weekend!

New Bird Sanctuary Clear Stamp Set and Die Set
by Jean Okimoto

MemoryBoxBirdSanctuaryClearStampSet-MemoryBoxBirdSanctuaryDieSet-MemoryBoxGroveCollage-JeanOkimoto-DiecutBirdCards-StampedBirdCards-WatercoloredBirdCards-DistressOxides-ImpressCardsAndCrafts

The new Bird Sanctuary Clear Stamp Set and Die Set are ready for your summer cards - and we can't wait to share our ideas with you!  Hello and Happy 4th of July if you're celebrating today - Jean Okimoto here with one of many designs featuring the 5 new clear stamp sets and and 2 coordinating die sets.

P1000555

Stamp the bird on watercolor paper with Onyx Black VersaFine and emboss it with detail clear powder.  Cut it with the matching die - leave the paper in the die.  Use the die as a stencil and sponge Broken China and Peeled Paint Distress Oxides lightly onto the bird.  The ink stays inside the lines this way.

Sponge Peeled Paint lightly onto the branch.  Use a waterbrush to paint a light layer of Fired Brick Distress Oxide over the green...now it's brown!  

Paint the beak with Spiced Marmalade.  

Blend the colors of the bird with a waterbrush for a soft watercolored look.  (I hope!)

Here's a tip - tape the inside of the Grove Collage die to the front of the open card for diecutting.  The center portion will be cut out, then tossed - so it's OK if the tape damages that section.  Attach the bird to a top-folded light green A-2 card.

P1000558
Use a stamp positioner to stamp the "Hello friend" - from the Bird Sanctuary Clear Stamp Set - onto the inside of the card with Peeled Paint.  Heat-set it.  Repeat the process with the "I'm here for you" stamp.  

Attach pale aqua gem stickers.
