Sweet Gardenias and Mixed Greens

P1110365Summer's almost over but there's still time to enjoy a few lovely gardenias. Jean Okimoto here, with an easy card featuring the Gorgeous Gardenia Background Die and the detailed Gorgeous Gardenia Outline Die.  

Diecutting the intricate Gorgeous Gardenia Outline Die using the Memory Box Metal Adapter Plate (with the other plates required for thin metal dies) gives you perfect blossoms every time.  I saved a few of the little pieces from the center of each flower and attached them with Scor-Tape.  That accents the flowers and helps attach them to the white Gorgeous Gardenia Background.


See the Memory Box Collection of stamps, dies and papers here.

An extra set of leaves, in Granny Smith Cardstock, helps attach the diecut to the Thank You Background that was stamped with ColorBox Grasshopper Archival Dye Ink.

Big thanks to everyone who took the Summer Garden Delights and Big Fab Flowers classes at the Tukwila Impress on Sunday.  We laughed a lot - but somehome managed to make 5 cards and 5 tags!

Talking about gardenias and classes reminded me to tell you about the Memory Box classes I'm planning to teach at Rubber Stamp Fantasy in December.  That's  Debbie and Gary's great store in Marietta, Georgia.  Looking forward to seeing them again - and meeting more members of the growing Memory Box community.

If you like the look of Washi Tape (and who doesn't?) - here's a set of cards featuring more Memory Box Flower Dies, and the great Washi stamps.  They're the  Washi Tape Strips and Washi Tape Dots -  with the lovely Peony Outline, Prized Chrysanthemum Outline and Tilth Floral Dies.  The details are on the Clearsnap Blog - http://blog.clearsnap.com/2013/08/spritzing-if-at-first-you-dont-success-by-jean-okimoto/
