Capture the colors of a autumn sunset on a background for the new Gypsy Oak Leaves.  Heat-embossed speckles and the new Happy Fall Posh Script greeting add golden highlights.  Hi, Jean here - with another way to use the great new die from the Vintage Tray 3D Embossing Folder set.

Attach Vintage Tray 3D Embossing Folder die to smooth white cardstock and create ink-blended blocks of warm fall pastels.  Distress Oxides were used here - spiced marmalade, kitsch flamingo, wild honey and dried marigold.  Remove and clean the die and heat-set the inks.  

The new Snow Flurries Stencil is great for random scattered speckles  - perfect for those of us who are ink-splatter-challenged.  Stencil a few of the dots with VersaMark and heat-emboss them with detail gold powder.  Diecut the blocks - save the extras for another project.

Cut Gypsy Oak Leaves from light- and medium-coral cardstock.  Assemble the leaves - slightly offset.

Glue 2 layers of white cardstock together and diecut the Happy Fall Posh Script Background.  Pressure-emboss it with the detailed greeting using the rubber embossing mat and plate(s) required for your machine.  Cut the detailed greeting from the gold Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad 6x6.

Attach the diecuts to a white A6 card (6-¼" x 4-½").  Add light gold Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut an A6-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Greet the season with pink, lime, a new plaid and the beautiful new layered Glorious Poinsettia. Hi, Jean here with a simple slimline design ready for your favorite mix of prints, colors, greetings and jeweled accents.  We're using the new Poinsettia Plaid 6x6 and Shining Star Clear Stamps too.

Cut Glorious Poinsettia from pink and green cardstock.  Cut the tiny centers from the bright yellow Graceful Gardens Glitter Pad sheet - we're using two of the three pieces.  Assemble the poinsettia.

Cut a plaid 6x6 with the 1-⅜" wide Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die - cut the 6x6 vertically, including the top portion where the sheets are attached.  Cut bright, dark pink cardstock with the ⅞" wide Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.

Stamp the greeting - from the new Shining Star Clear Stamp Set - on pink cardstock with Oasis Green VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink, then trim the the greeting with the ⅝" wide Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  

Eliminate measuring, guessing (and thinking!) with the Slim Basic Rectangle Layers dies.  They're perfectly proportioned for slimline layers and backgrounds.

Attach the diecuts and greeting to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½") - use foam dots for the tips of the larger petals.  Add pink/taupe Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Balance a bold layered poinsettia with a matching plaid and let the detailed petals be the focal point.  This design works in traditional reds and greens with our other plaids - and try it creamy whites with gold details too.

Thanks for visiting...see you on Friday!

Fall Greetings by Jean Okimoto

Celebrate the change of seasons with Gypsy Oak Leaves and warm fall colors - highlight the earthy colors with shimmery, glittery accents for extra sparkle.  Hi, Jean here with a quick switch to fall designs from our Christmas 2023 Collection.   I got off to a quick start with a hoarded sheet of ink-blended Open Studio Watercolor Paper in great fall colors.

Stencil it with a few random dots of VersaMark using the new Snow Flurries Art Stencil.  Heat-emboss the stenciled dots with detail gold powder for a loose, speckled look.

 Cut three solid background Gypsy Oak Leaves.  Cut the detailed overlay leaves from the gold Rainbow Reflections 6x6.

Cut kraft cardstock with the 1-¾" and 1-¼" wide A2 Rectangle Frames Dies.

Glue two layers of kraft cardstock together and cut the new Happy Fall Posh Script background.  Spritz both sides with a light mist of water.  Pressure-emboss it with the detailed overlay script background using the rubber embossing mat and plate(s) required for your machine.  Cut the detailed script from the orange Glitzy Glitter Pad 6x6.  Assemble the greeting.  Pressure-embossing the background is an extra step - but the detailed layer fits snugly into the debossed letters for easy assembly.

Joy Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_6412

Hello everyone!  Today's card features more new products from the 2023 Christmas release.

I love the Vintage Tray Die and Embossing Folder set.  There's so many ways you could use this die and today I chose to fill the openings with different die cuts.  The good thing with this new release is that there are so many choices.

IMG_6414

I began by embossing 2 pieces of white cardstock with the 3D embossing folder from the Vintage Tray Set.  Next, I die cut the frame from one of the embossed pieces and inked all the pieces with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I adhered the pieces onto the other embossed piece of cardstock to create the background for my card.

I die cut the frame die 4 times from black cardstock, stacked and glued them together for some dimension.  I glued the frame onto the prepared background.

All the die cut elements were cut from colored cardstock and inked with Distress Inks.  The Chickadee body was die cut from white cardstock and inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The other parts of the chickadee were cut from colored cardstock and glued in place.

I glued all the die cuts in place in the frame openings.

I stamped the sentiment in black ink on a strip of white cardstock.  I lightly inked the edges with Vintage Photo Ink and glued it under the word "Joy".

IMG_6413

To finish the card I added some red fairy crystals for berries on the pine branches.

That's it for today's card!  Thanks for stopping by.

Dimensional Stenciling with Memory Box Dies by Jean Okimoto

Embossing and stenciling are great basic papercrafting techniques. Combine them to add texture and dimension to highlight your design.  Hi, Jean here with another idea featuring the bold Fanciful Gilded Frame from our Fall '23 Collection.  The hat-wearing cat is from Poppystamps.

Spritz both sides of an A2-sized rectangle of orange cardstock with a light mist of water. Place a layer of heavy plastic between the Fanciful Gilded Frame die and the cardstock to  cushion and protect the cardstock.  A single layer of plastic from a quart- or gallon-sized Ziploc back or page protector sleeve would be great.  Pressure-emboss the design using the rubber embossing mat and plates required for your machine.

Remove the plastic layer, then replace and attach the die to the embossed cardstock. Use the die as a stencil to apply Onyx Black or Nocturne VersaFine Clair with a sponge or blending brush.  Heat-set the ink.

Diecut the embossed design with the 4" wide Nested Globes die.  Cut the orange cardstock with the 2" wide Nested Globes die too.

Cut the ghosts - from the Ghosts in the Forest set - from the textured side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  Attach scraps of black cardstock behind the faces.

Cut Large Layered Witch Hat from the black Glitzy Glitter Pad sheet.  Cut the hat's vertical trim from the black Rainbow Reflections sheet.  Cut the hatband fron the chartreuse Rainbow Reflections sheet.

Glue two layers of black cardstock together for dimension and cut the new Poppystamps Whittle Purring Cat.  Attach a scrap of the orange Glitzy Glitter Pad sheet behind the nose.

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded A6 card (4-½" x 6") cut from a 12" square sheet.  Or use a side-folded A6 card cut from an 8-½"x11" sheet.  Add taupe Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut an A6-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Hope you'll try this embossing+stenciling technique to add extra dimension and details to your cards.  

Thanks for visiting...have a great weekend!

Hello Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_6201

Hello everyone! Today I have a Fall themed card for you featuring new products from the new 2023 Fall Release.  

I used the "Autumn Pumpkin" as a vase for my fall foliage arrangement.  The pumpkin was die cut from orange cardstock and the foliage from green, yellow and orange cardstock.  They were all inked with coordinating Distress Inks.

IMG_6200


The background panel was dry embossed using the new "Fanciful Glided Frame" on aqua cardstock.  I inked the edges with Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks, and  adhered the panel to an Ivory cardstock card base.
 

IMG_6199

Next, I used foam tape on the bottom portion of the pumpkin and adhered it to the background panel.  I tucked in all the foliage pieces and glued them in place. 

I spattered the background with gold ink.

The word "Hello" was gold foiled, die cut, and glued to the pumpkin.

IMG_6202

To finish the card, I adhered some Autumn Fairy Crystals to add a little shine.

That's it for today!  Thanks for stopping by!

Ghost buddies share the new Large Layered Witch Hat beside a windblown, tumbled cluster of Layered Greenery Stems.  Glitzy Glitter Pad and Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad diecuts -  and purple Autumn Fairy Crystals - brighten this fall scene.  Hi, Jean here with an un-scary design for Halloween.

Cut Layered Greenery Stems from gray cardstock and the black Glitzy Glitter Pad 6x6.  Pair the gray and glittered stems.

Cut the ghosts - from the Ghosts in the Forest set - from White Woodgrain paper (cardstock) and black cardstock.  I cut them from different sections of the woodgrain cardstock for contrasting textures.  Attach a scrap of black cardstock behind their faces.  Layer the black ghosts behind the white ones for dimension and contrast.
