Flip Graceful Jellyfish upside-down and they can be Vibrant Violet flowers - with a bit of determination and a lot of imagination.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another way to get the most from your Memory Box dies - and a glittered Poppystamps Grosgrain Bow.

Cut the detailed Graceful Jellyfish overlays from six shades of Vibrant Violet 6x6 cardstock.  Cut the tops of 2 big and 1 small Seed Stems from black cardstock.  Trim them and attach them between two layers of the jellyfish overlay diecuts.  

Cut Vertical Line Collage from black cardstock - we're using 3 of the offcut strips for stems here.  Attach them to the flowers.

Cut the largest Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangle from white cardstock.  Cut the rectangle with Vertical Line Collage.  Cut a 1-⅜" wide strip of the lightest gray from the 6x6 Earth Neutral Collection.  Attach it behind the collage.  Attach the rectangle to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-⅝").

Cut the Poppystamps Grosgrain Bow from the fuchsia Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad 6x6 sheet.  Attach the diecuts to the card - use foamtape for the shortest flower.  Add ¼" dots punched from the silver Holiday Glitter Pad sheet.

We'll use the Graceful Jellyfish as actual jellyfish in a future post.  I thought I'd share today's card first, for anyone looking for a just-in-time design for Mother's Day.

Thanks for visiting - see you next week!

Birthdays happen - and some of us need a slimline card wide enough to hold a lot of candles!  The new Jumbled Line Collage makes it easy to create 21 paper-pieced candles with bright blocks of cardstock from our 6x6 Collections.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a birthday design - including a greeting from the Poppystamps Birthday Blowout Clear Stamp Set.

Our new adhesive Fairy Jewels are available in brights, pastels and clear gems.  I could have used the yellow jewels from the Bright Jewels set, but I wanted to check if the Clear Jewels could be custom-colored with Sharpies.  I colored them with alternating layers of yellow and orange Sharpies and let them dry while I made the card.  They passed the Sharpie test!

Cut white cardstock with the largest Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles die.  Cut the rectangle with Jumbled Line Collage. 

Cut cardstock from the Berry Red and Sunny Yellow Collections to color the candles - 2-¾" x 2" of the medium and dark pinks and 2-¾" x 1-⅝" of the yellow.  Tape them behind the collage.  Attach the rectangle to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-⅝").

Cut Layered Daisies, Layered Fresh Flowers and Layered Cosmos from the same pinks and yellow - cut two of the cosmos.  Cut Vertical Lines from a green sheet in the Lush Green Collection.  Assemble the flowers and attach them to the card.

Stamp the Poppystamps Birthday Blowout greeting on a light orange sheet from the Sunny Orange Collection with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair.  Attach it with foamtape.

Attach the Fairy Jewels for the candle flames.  It's easy to remove jewels from the plastic sheet if you wiggle them gently with tweezers before lifting them from the sheet.

Place a layer of cardstock over the card front to protect it in the mail - it may require special handling and postage.  

Hope your favorite storefront or online retailer has received the Under the Sea release so you can enjoy creating with it as much as we have!  Admire and be inspired by Dave's wonderful Idea Book.

Nested Globes + Seed Stems/Layered Daisies + Glade Butterfly = 2 Just a Note Cards
by Anne Thompson

I ended up with two Just a Note cards for this post that each began with plaid papers and Nested Globes cut from watercolored papers, plaid papers, foil papers, and glitter papers and accented with Glade Butterflies and Seed Stems or Layered Daisies.

IMG_3090-ink

Without a design in mind for a finished card, I started with two pieces of Memory Box Open Studio WATERCOLOR PAPER WP101 and watercolor pencils in shades of green and blue.  I oriented one paper vertically and the other horizontally, painting blue "sky" and green "grass".  Using the set of NESTED GLOBES 94532 I cut globes of different sizes from each of those papers.

My next step was to cut more globes in a variety of sizes from a variety of papers--a blue/green plaid from MADRAS PLAID BLUE AND VIOLET PP1014, blue foil from POLISHED FOIL PAD FP1001, light green glitter paper from GRACEFUL GARDEN GLITTER PAD GP1002, and bright blue glitter paper from TWINKLING JEWEL GLITTER PAD GP1003.

I then cut one of the small SEED STEMS 94534 from a scrap of the paper I had watercolored and two more from some scrap plaid paper.  I cut the detailed GLADE BUTTERFLY 94578 from another watercolor leftover piece and from some of the light green glitter paper and cut the solid one from blue foil paper. And I made several of the LAYERED DAISIES 94472 from plaid paper scraps.

Then I was ready to start to put a card or two together from the bits I had assembled in a pile on my work table.

Card One

IMG_3089-ink

  • For this card I started with a white notecard and covered the front with a piece of plaid paper. 
  • Then I added these paper layers--a large globe from my vertical watercolored paper, a smaller blue foil globe, a smaller plaid globe, and an even smaller globe from my horizontal watercolored paper. 
  • Next I added the Seed Stems, gluing down just the stems with colored gems in the seedy centers. 
  • I used a Glue Dot to secure the detailed painted butterfly to the foil one underneath and added a gem to its center.  I used another Glue Dot to attach it to the card.
  • I die cut the base for JUST A NOTE POSH SCRIPT 94527 from more of the blue foil and the detailed lettering from a plaid paper scrap.

Card Two

IMG_3088-ink

  • Again I started with a white notecard and covered the front with plaid paper.
  • I chose two of the large glitter paper globes, one light green and one blue, and inverted them before stacking them on the front of the card, using Scor-Tape to secure them in place.
  • I added two of the LAYERED DAISIES 94472 on the left edge of the blue globe and adhered blue plaid gems in their centers.
  • I used a Glue Dot to attach the Glade Butterfly and put a blue gem on its body and pulled the wings up a bit for added dimension.
  • I cut the base for Just a Note from a scrap of the green glitter paper and the detailed words from a scrap of the card background plaid paper.

This was very much a "let's see what I can make from this pile of stuff" process of card-making.  Starting out I knew I wanted to watercolor with my watercolor pencils and I wanted to do something with the Nested Globes, but I did not have a clear vision beyond that.  And in the end I really like these cards.  The foil paper and gems on the first card and the glitter paper on the second really pop.  Do you always start with a clear idea in mind or do you collect a bunch of stuff and see what happens?

Happy Crafting!

Spritz, Sponge and Speckle a Slimline Birthday Card by Jean Okimoto

Need a birthday card idea?  Here's a spring birthday greeting in pinks and greens.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with techniques for weekend crafting.

Spritz both sides of Open Studio Watercolor Paper lightly with water.  Attach the Stained Glass Floral die to the smoother side of the paper.  Pressure-emboss it with the rubber embossing mat and plates required for your machine.  

Cut Stained Glass Floral again from printer paper - we're using the 3 large offcuts to mask the uninked sections of the watercolor paper.  (You can also mask the very small triangle at the bottom...I didn't!)  Lightly tape the offcuts to mask areas around the embossed design.  Have a double layer of paper towel nearby.

Hold the offcuts down with a stylus or skewer and sponge the embossed sections with flamingo kitsch and twisted citron Distress Oxides.  Carefully remove the offcuts and spritz the inked design with just enough water so the inks start moving and filling the embossed sections.  Blot the excess ink with the paper towel.  Heat-set the inks.  Diecut it with the 2-½" Square Basics die.  

Flick specks of diluted flamingo kitsch ink around the embossed design.

Cut the pink and green Spring Plaid Slim sheet with the 2-¼ x 7-¼" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  Cut a ¾" x 3-½" strip of the lime green Frosted Glitter Pad sheet.  Attach both pieces to a pale sage slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½").  Attach the embossed square.

Diecut Stained Glass Floral from a sheet in the 6x6 Lush Green Collection - leave it in the die.  Attach narrow strips of lined doublestick tape - like Diecut'nBond or Scor-Tape - along the outer edges and run it through the machine again to cut the tape.  Leave it in the die and remove the offcuts and tape liner pieces.  Flip the diecut (still in the die) over onto the watercolor paper.  Press it firmly to transfer and adhere the diecut onto the watercolor paper.   Carefully remove the die.

Cut the Birthday Mail background from another 6x6 Lush Green Collection sheet. Cut the delicate Birthday Mail overlay from the pink Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad sheet.  You can either save and attach the very, very tiny piece that dots the "i" - or punch a ¼" dot of the pink glittered sheet and attach it behind the tiny hole on the green diecut. Option #2 is much easier!  Punch 3 more dots and attach them on the left side.

Thanks for following this long, detailed process - it's a lot easier than it sounds!  Hope you'll try this idea with similar Memory Box dies and your favorite colors.

Have a great Sunday - see you again on Thursday...

Diecut contemporary flowers for spring cards with the versatile Nested Globes and the Berry Red 6x6 Collection.  A bit of upcycled diecutting and the great colors of the Berry Red set add a fresh look to a slimline design for any occasion.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here sharing a self-challenge design.  I wanted to create these simple flowers from supplies in my stash, including the Poppystamps products I buy to make card kits for Impress here in Seattle and Stamps and Memories in Hawaii.

Cut partial pieces from the 6x6 Berry Red Collection with the 2nd- and 3rd-smallest Nested Globes dies.  Cut smaller sections of contrasting shades to create a layered, dimensional look.  Trim the edges with 2 of the Poppystamps Wave Trio dies.  

Cut Seed Stems from the lime green sheet in the Frosted Glitter 6x6 pad.  Assemble the flowers - trim the Seed Stem for the small flower.

Cut two partial pieces of the dark brown Earth Neutral 6x6 sheet with the 7-¼ x 2-¼" Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangle. Overlap and attach them where it'll be covered by the flowers, about 3" from the top edge.  

Stamp the greeting - from the Big and Little Reverse Words Clear Stamp and Die Set - on white cardstock with Tulip Red VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink and diecut the greeting with the die that's included in the set.

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-½ x 8-½") - use foam dots for the greeting.  Add ¼" dots punched from the gold sheet in the Holiday Glitter Pad.

Hope you like these bright blossoms and their simple contemporary style.  The pandemic has taught me to be more resourceful - even when designing and papercrafting. Think of all the ways you can repurpose your Memory Box and Poppystamps products!

Hello Daisy
by Sara Cook

Hope everyone is having a good spring so far.  I have lively spring card that is quick and colorful using Memory Box watercolor paper and Daisy Stem die.  

D8BB7C24-5331-4C29-99C1-2F42B54F9559_1_201_a

Background:

Die cut the Memory Box watercolor paper with the 2nd largest die from Wrapped Stitched Rectangles set.  Stamped the paper with the Typewriter Holiday Element word background stamp and white heat embossed.  Wet both sides of the paper with water.  I picked out 4 colors to watercolor with from my paints, bright yellow, a light green, a turquoise, and a blue.  Randomly dap the color starting with the lightest to the darkest until the paper is mostly colored.  Let the water blend the colors and only lightly touch the color together with your paintbrush. The background does not need to be fully painted.  Let dry.

Flower:

Die cut the Daisy Stem flower die from the lightest yellow paper from the Sunny Orange paper pack and both stem and leaves die from a green paper from the Lush Green paper back.  I lightly added watercolored the die cuts with the matching paint used in the background.  I did add a light brown paint to the base of the daisy.  Let dry.

F21BCD3A-D14E-49F3-A5E5-7363108E52FD_1_201_a

Sentiment:

I stamped the hello sentiment from the Big and Little Reverse Words set with a matching aqua pigment ink, I used Fresh Ink Spruce ink pad.  Die cut the sentiment with the matching die.

Assemble:

Adhere the background watercolor to a matching color paper.  I chose the  darkest paper from the Fresh Aqua paper pack and trim down to 5"x3 3/4" to create a boarder.  Then adhere it to a A2 card base.  Glue the flowers together and then on the stem. Adhere the leave setem and then the flower to the center of the card.  Adhere the sentiment over the lower portion of the flower with foam tape.

Dreamy Freesia, Glade Butterfly, Just Because
by Anne Thompson

When I saw that this month's challenge involves paint, I got out my Memory Box Open Studio Watercolor Paper WP101 and my favorite Kuretake water colors to make some papers that I could then use to die cut flowers to create two cards.

IMG_3077-ink

I knew I wanted to work with both greens and oranges and gold to coordinate with the Madras Plaid Coral and Green papers.  In the photo below you can see the watercolor papers I made (after I die cut the Dreamy Freesia blossoms).  I wet my paper first with a wide brush and clean water and then used a smaller wet brush to add separate bands of orange and gold on one paper.  For the other I used a variety of shades of green also working wet on wet, let it dry a bit before adding dots of yellow that I then dragged across the paper with a dry sponge brush.  I cut two freesias from each paper.

IMG_3085-ink

For both cards I used the same dies:

  • DREAMY FREESIA 94476
  • GLADE BUTTERFLY 94578
  • JUST BECAUSE POSH SCRIPT 94530

IMG_3082-ink

And I used papers from these pads:

IMG_3086-ink

  • BERRY RED COLLECTION SP1001
  • LUSH GREEN COLLECTION SP1003
  • MADRAS PLAID CORAL AND GREEN PP1013
  • POLISHED FOIL PAD FP1001

Card One

IMG_3080-ink

to make this card after painting and die cutting the water color papers

  • white notecard
  • orange cardstock 4 X 5 1/4
  • orange plaid 3 3/4 X 5
  • a strip of a different orange plaid 1 X 5
  • die cut the butterfly, once from the same orange cardstock and once from a scrap of an orange plaid; attach the two pieces with a glue dot and use another glue dot to adhere it to the narrow paper strip; add a tiny gem in the top center and fold up the wings a bit for added dimension
  • attach one freesia stem and blossom flat on the card front, add a gem in the center; attach just the stem of the second freesia and add a gem in the center
  • cut Just Because, the background from gold foil paper and the cursive words from more of the orange cardstock, glue together and add to the card front

Card Two

IMG_3079-ink

to make this card after painting and die cutting the water color papers

  • white notecard
  • green cardstock 4 X 5 1/4
  • green plaid 3 3/4 X 5
  • a strip of a different green plaid 
  • die cut the butterfly, once from the same green cardstock and once from a scrap of a green plaid; attach the two pieces with a glue dot and use another glue dot to adhere it to the narrow paper strip; add a tiny gem in the top center and fold up the wings a bit for added dimension
  • attach one freesia stem and blossom flat on the card front, add a gem in the center; attach just the stem of the second freesia and add a gem in the center
  • cut Just Because, the background from green foil paper and the cursive words from more of a green plaid paper, glue together and add to the card front

I'm inspired to paint more papers to have on hand for die cutting the many flowers from the current release.  This card design is another that I could easily make again with different blooms as the focus. The small butterflies, the narrow strips, and the sentiment words were easily made from scraps as I cut background layering papers to the sizes I needed or I found papers in my scrap box.    I found it helpful before I started work to select which papers I wanted to use for the backgrounds so that I could paint coordinating panels for the flowers.

Happy Crafting!

Paper-Pieced Crystal Frames
by Laura Fulcher

LF4

Greetings Friends. I wanted to share with you a couple of cards I made using the Crystal Frame die as well as some of the new Memory Box plaid papers. The frame is a great way to really highlight whatever sentiment you desire.

For the first card, I chose a purple and yellow color scheme to really make the card "pop." I started with solid papers from the Sunny Orange pack and then added elements from the Twilight Purple pack. The plaid is from the Madras Plaid Blue and Violet collection. I cut out each color/pattern with the same Crystal Frame die and then paper-pieced them together to get the look I wanted. The nice thing about that is now I have a lot of leftover pieces to make a couple more cards.

To finish the first card, I added my sentiment and then cut out pieces from the new Layered Daisies set to build my own flower. Most of the flower consists of cardstock from the Sunny Orange pack, but I added a little Copic marker to the petals to give them a bit of dimension.

LF1

I made a second card using some of the extra pieces from the first card. I figure if you have your machine out and are diecutting, you might as well make several cards. To finish this card, I used a thank you die as well as some lavender and a little bit of twine.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. If you celebrate Easter, I wish you a happy holiday.
