A September Celebration! by Jean Okimoto


Celebrate Stamptember with Memory Box and Simon Says Stamp!  Here's the fabulous new and exclusive Memory Box Beautiful Moments Stamp Set designed by Dave Brethauer for this annual celebration of design, creativity and inspiration.

It's a versatile, classic design that's only available while supplies last.  You'll love creating cards, layouts, journals and mixed media projects with this great set of clear stamps.

Hi friends, Jean Okimoto here with a simple back-painted vellum slimline design.  It's a classic botanical image that's perfect for any occasion.  

Prep heavy white vellum with the embossing powder tool to eliminate stray powder flecks.  Stamp the image with VersaMark, then emboss it with detail white powder.  Trim it with the 4-¾"x 3-½" Rectangle Basics die.

Dribble Distress Oxide refill inks onto a large acrylic stamp block.  I've used abandoned coral, twisted citron and mowed lawn.  Paint the reverse side of the stamped vellum using a barely damp paintbrush and the refill inks.  Airdry the inks.  

Stamp the greeting - also from this great new stamp set - on white cardstock with Tulip Red VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink, then trim the greeting with the 2-¾"x 1-½" Rectangle Basics die. P1018953 2

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card - 3-⅝" x 8-⅝".  Foamtape the greeting.  Use tiny pieces of doublestick tape behind several outer points of the stamped image.  

Add green Christmas Fairy Crystals.  Place a very tiny dot of adhesive on the vellum behind the jewels to secure the  three corners.

Cut a slimline-sized rectangle of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.


Here's a link to order your exclusive Beautiful Moments set - remember it's a limited edition exclusive, available only while supplies last.
