Lightly Layered - Sketch Flower Spray and Sketch Blooms by Jean Okimoto

P1100853 2

Sketch Blooms add layers of dimension to an embossed Sketch Flower Spray background on a card designed to brighten someone's day.   A greeting from the Rose Garden Clear Stamps Set and gem stickers complete this thoughtful greeting.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with some just-in-time inspiration for May's Embossing Extravaganza Challenge.  

Enjoy the versatility of the delicate Sketch Flower Spray by pressure-embossing it instead of diecutting it to add a subtle background for the crisp white blossoms.

Cut green cardstock with the 4-¾" x 3-½" Rectangle Basics die.  Pressure emboss it with Sketch Flower Spray using the plates and embossing mat recommended by your machine's manufacturer.  Cut the flowers from white cardstock.

Cut Sketch Blooms from white cardstock - save both the outline and the solid offcut. 

Create multi-layered flowers with the white diecuts.

Stamp the greeting from the Rose Bouquet Clear Stamps Set on light green cardstock with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair.  Trim it with the ¾" x 2" Rectangle Basics die.

Attach the diecuts to a green side-folded card.  Add yellow and green gem stickers.

Happy thoughts and big thanks to everyone from Monday's SEATTLE STYLE class at Impress!  We're so lucky to have so many great papercrafting companies right here in Washington - and it's always fun to combine their products.  Memory Box, Poppystamps and Birch Press Designs look great together and allow us to get more from our stashes of their genuine,  American-made products.  Special thanks too - Shari and Karen - for helping everyone fill their baskets.

Thanks for visiting!
