Add a Scribble Rose Accent to the Rose Bouquet by Jean Okimoto


Congratulations to all of the Garden Bouquet Blog Blitz prizewinners - and thank you for your comments!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another design featuring the Scribble Rose Outline and Background - and the new Rose Bouquet Clear Stamp Set too.  Loving the cool,  contemporary Scribble designs!


Stamp the bouquet on the smoother side of watercolor paper with Nocturne VersaFine Clair and quickly emboss it with detail clear powder.  Brush loose, outside-the-lines layers of diluted Kaleidacolor Dye Ink Refills onto the image.  Skip the large rose in the center - it'll be covered  by Scribble Rose diecuts.  Dry the inks.

Trim it with the 2" x 3-¼" Rectangle Basics die.  

Stamp the greeting - also from the Rose Bouquet set - onto the smoother side of Snapdragon cardstock with Nocturne. 

Cut the large Scribble Rose Background from periwinkle cardstock.  Cut the large Scribble Rose Outline from black cardstock.


Several of the new flower dies from the Garden Bouquet Collection have tiny arrows (which remain on the offcut after cutting) to help align the coordinating dies.  

Cut a 4-¾" x ¾" strip of Sour Apple cardstock.

Assemble the card and add pale aqua gemstickers.

Christmas will arrive sooner than you think...why not get the Scribble Roses Background set now and be ready to diecut a wonky snowman in a few months!  Use the background dies with the Scribble Roses Outline for floral and garden cards this summer - then build a snowman for the holidays.


Big thanks to everyone from last weekend's ASIA NOW class at Impress!  We keep discovering that so many products from Memory Box, Poppystamps and Birch Press Designs are perfect for Asian-themed cards.  Thanks too - Shari and LaVonne - for helping everyone shop and fill those baskets!  And thank you for the beautiful spring  flowers Elaine!

No classes for me this weekend - I'm prepping for the SEATTLE STYLE class on Monday, May 27th.  Join us if you have a holiday that day!

Thanks for visiting...






Beautiful card Jean! Love the water coloring but looks challenging 😜!!! Hope you use this in a class!!!

Thanks Jan. It's easier than origami - see you at Impress!
