Layered Blossom in a Pinpoint Frame by Jean Okimoto


It's easy to create a stash of any-occasion cards with Memory Box printed papers, detailed dies and color-coordinated 6x6 collections.  Add a thoughtful greeting from the new Friends and Family Clear Stamp Set and the sparkle of turquoise Bright Jewels.  Done!

Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a basic design that's quick and easy - and just might make a tiny dent in your paper stash.  The Garden Folly 6x6 set is a classic favorite of floral and contempory prints for year-round greetings.  The colors coordinate with our 6x6 color collections, glittered cardstock, mirror cardstock and adhesive gems.


Cut Hex Half Pinpoint twice - from adjacent sections - of the Garden Folly 6x6 leafy print. Tape the pieces together to form a hexagon frame.  Cut a 3-¾" square of a teal sheet in the Fresh Aqua 6x6 set.  Attach it behind the frame.  Attach it to a side-folded olive A2 card.

Cut the double-flowered Riverbank Large Layered Blooms from the light teal Fresh Aqua 6x6.  Cut the single blossom (and round center) fron the pale aqua Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad 6x6.  Assemble the flower and attach it to the background.


Stamp the greeting - from the new Friends and Family Clear Stamp Set - on a bright lime 6x6 from the Lush Green Collection with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair.  Quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.  Trim it and attach it to the card, tucked under a petal.  Add turquoise jewels from the Bright Jewels set.

Thanks for visiting the blog...hope you love our newest collection as much as we do.  Enjoy creating with the wide range of floral and garden designs as spring approaches.  See you again on Friday!






I'm always so happy to open up the blog page to catch up and see one of your beautiful designs, Jean! What a lovely palette of colors this card has - and such a creative use of the new dies and papers. It is so calm and serene.Thank you, as always, for the inspiration.
