Blooming Sweet Pea and Special Hugs by Jean Okimoto


Happy Mother's Day to everyone celebrating today!

The blossoms, leaves and tendrils of the new Blooming Sweet Pea 3D Embossing Folder create a delicate background for a thoughtful greeting.  The glossy heat-embossed design adds extra dimension and contrast.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a simple design for any occasion.


Cut a sheet from the Vibrant Violet Collection with the 4-¼" x 5-½" Rectangle Basics die.  Use a hard rubber brayer and a clean, well-inked VersaMark pad to transfer the ink the top section of the Blooming Sweet Pea 3D Embossing Folder.  Pressure-emboss inked areas with detail clear powder.

Here's a technique we use in classes - preheat the embossing powder by applying the heat-tool to the reverse side of the the cardtock first.  Let the heat-tool cool off for a minute or two, then heat-emboss the design from thge right side.  

Stamp the greeting - from the All the Happiness Clear Stamp and die set - on a pale lavender sheet from the Vibrant Violet Collection with Paradise VersaFine Clair.  Cut it with the Double Stitch Happy Heart die.

Cut a darker lavender sheet with the 2" x 3-½" Rectangle Basics die. Cut a partial heart  from the rectangle - tape the heart to the rectangle on the reverse side.

Attach the pieces to a top-folded white A-2 card.  Add clear Fairy Drops.


The new 3D Embossing Folders give you the option of simply embossing - or adding ink.  Hope you take the time to try the different techniques 

Thanks for visiting - see you on Thursday!
