Bear in the Pines
by Anne Thompson

I've been following the adventures of a bear cub in the next town, no mother bear anywhere for days and days.  He has been successfully captured by the local game warden and transported up north to the only bear rehabilitation facility in Maine.  There he will be fed and cared for through the winter to be released in the late spring.  This is a good ending to what could have been a disaster for this little fellow.  His story made me take another look at the LAYERED POLAR BEAR 94685 die and reimagine him as a different kind of bear.  Maine bears are black bears and wouldn't be as interesting created in paper as ones in brown plaids...

This is a "Beary" Christmas design that can easily be replicated in assembly line fashion with a sentiment added inside the card.

I used plaid papers (of course) from JOLLY CHRISTMAS PP1019 and WOODSY PLAID PP1018.

IMG_3941-ink
The dies I used are LAYERED POLAR BEAR 94685 and PINE NEEDLE FRAME 94687.

IMG_3943-ink

To make this cared, die cut all the bear parts using two coordinating papers and put it together using the envelope picture as a guide.  Add some Fairy Jewels for the eyes and nose.

Die cut the Pine Needle Frame from one of the green plaids, making sure to remove all of the tiny pieces.

Cover the entire front of a white notecard with another plaid paper in a lighter tone.  Add the Pine Needle Frame using a glue pen.  Put foam dimensional dots on the back of the bear and pop him into the center.

Either die cut, stamp, or write a sentiment inside the card.

Have some fun making bears of many colors.  This is one of the cards we'll be making at my class this week.  I can't wait to see the bears they create!

Happy Crafting!

The new Pine Needle Frame creates a winter scene for a frosty snowgal and felt birds. The delicate frame, floral Garland print, Festive Glitter pad, Polished Foil and felt add dimension and textures to greet the season.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a framed window design featuring our Christmas '22 Collection.

Open the card for some surprises. What looks like a beanie from the outside is actually a tall stocking cap -  and a felt bird stops by for a visit.

Cut Pine Needle Frame from white cardstock.  The Tall Bundled Snowman set includes 3 snowmen - we're creating a stylish snowgal.  Cut the front of a top-folded white A-2 card with the largest snowman die.  Save the offcut - and cut it with the smallest snowman die.  Add black cardstock scraps behind the eyes and buttons.

Color white cardstock with orange and brown markers and diecut the carrot nose and arms.  Attach the arms behind the snowgal.

Cut pale blue cardstock from the Stormy Blue Collection with the medium-sized snowman. Attach it - through the window - to the interior of the card.

Cut the hat from the red Festive Glitter Pad sheet and the Polished Foil Pad sheet.  

Cut the 2 top layers of the scarf from the Garland 6x6 floral print.  Cut the 2 bottom layers from the red Festive Glitter Pad sheet.  Trim the left edge of the glittered diecut to decrease the width about ⅛".  

Attach hat and scarf diecuts to the snowgal.

The versatile new Layered Birds die can also create simple un-layered birds.  Attach a sticker sheet or adhesive label paper to wool-blend red felt and cut Layered Birds. The paper backing stabilizes and felt and keeps adhesives from saturating the felt.  Attach 3 birds to the frame and 1 inside the card.

A delicate pine needle frame surrounds a layered poinsettia on a detailed - but easy - holiday greeting.  The intricate designs are simply diecut from a festive array of Memory Box 6x6 color collections, glitter cardstock, polished foils and mirror cardstock.

Hi, Jean Okimoto here with more great dies from our Christmas 2022 Collection.  Balance the details of the new Poinsettia Watercolor Floral and Pine Needle Frame with a mix of reds and greens and a dash of gold accents.

Cut Pine Needle Frame from the light yellow-green Lush Green 6x6.  Cut the extra needles from the chartreuse 6x6 in the Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.

Cut the entire set  of the Poinsettia Watercolor Floral from the dark red 6x6 in the Berry Red Collection.  Cut it again from the red Polished Foil 6x6.  You'll be able to create two layered poinsettias with the combination of the Berry Red and Polished Foil sheets.  

Cut two sets of the tiny 3-piece centers from the gold sheet in the Glitzy Glitter Pad.  Assemble the poisettias - chose 1 for this card and save the other for another project.  It'll be ready when you need a quick card or gift tag in December!

Stamp the greeting - from the new Sweet Christmas Clear Stamp Set - on a chartreuse Lush Greeb 6x6 with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair.

Add the greeting and gold Autumn Fairy Crystals.

Add extra leaves to the center of the Exquisite Leaf Frame and create a botanical background for flowers from our latest releases.  The diecuts from the Exquisite Leaf Set fill the frame and surround the layered blossoms.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another easy way to get more from your Memory Box dies.

Cut the flowers from three shades of Vibrant Violet 6x6 pack with the Layered Cosmos and Poppystamps Petite Blooms Flower Set.    Mix and match the layers and centers.  

Stamp the greeting - from the Signature Greetings Clear Stamp and Die Set - on white cardstock with Purple Delight VersaFine Clair.  Quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.  Cut the cardstock with the 2" x 3-¼" Rectangle Basics die.  Attach it to the card.  Add the flowers and green Christmas Fairy Jewels.

Ruffled Blooms and Exquisite Leaf Set by Jean Okimoto

 

P1015030 2

Send a fresh garden greeting with Ruffled Blooms and Exquisite Leaf Set layered over a trellis-y frame from Poppystamps.  Hi, Jean Okimoto  here with a spring design that's easy and versatile - just pick your favorite shades from our 6x6 Collections of 108 coordinating colors.

P1015186

Cut Ruffled Blooms from different colors in the Vibrant Violet Collection.  I wasn't sure which blossoms and colors I'd use - so I cut all 4 designs, then saved the extras for another day.  Attach the oval centers to the 3 largest flowers.  Color all of the centers using a small dauber or cotton swab and Sunflower Yellow Brilliance.  The resulting color varies when Sunflower Yellow is layered over the different shades of cardstock.

Cut the Exquisite Leaf Set pieces from the Lush Green Collection.

Cut white cardstock with the 2-¾" Square Basics die.  Adding a matching solid background helps the flowers stand out more.

Cut the Poppystamps Penelope Pinpoint Frame from white cardstock.  This versatile A2-sized die looks great layered over a contrasting card too.  I chose a larger card to add a greeting.

Stamp the greeting - from the Open  Studio Friends and Family Clear Stamp Set - on a Lush Green sheet with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink, then cut the greeting block with a 1-¼" Square Basics die.

P1015169

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

Cut the flowers - from the Paisley Bloom Arch Set - from 3 sheets in the Berry Red Collection.  Save the extra blossoms for another project.  Attach the flowers to the wreath.

Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to cream felt and cut Gentle Bunny. Cut another tail pouf and stack them for dimension.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and prevents adhesives from saturating the fabric.  Cut another bunny from white cardstock.  Attach the felt bunny to the front of the card - then attach the white cardstock bunny from inside the card for dimension and support. 

Add pink and green Pastel Fairy Jewels.  

Stamp the greeting - from the Big and Little Spring Clear Stamps Set - on white cardstock with Tulip Red VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink and cut the greeting with the 1" Circle Basics die.  Cut another circle from a pink 6x6 and attach it for dimension and contrast.

Layered Blossom in a Pinpoint Frame by Jean Okimoto

P1013925

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.

P1013979

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.

P1013943

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!

Pinks and greens - and a favorite felt Bunny Face - create a friendship card with great new dies from our Spring 2022 Collection.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a layered, monochromatic design - and a lot of textured details.

The Memory Box 6x6 Collections make it easy to find the perfect coordinating colors for any project.  Three shades of pink from the Berry Red Collection create the Layered Periwinkles here.

Cut Exquisite Leaf Frame from a 6x6 in the Lush Green Collection.  Attach it to a green A2 card.  (Or attach it to another Lush Green 6x6 cut with the largest Rectangle Basics die.  Attach them to a white or natural notecard to create a custom-colored notecard.)

Cut the background of the Miss You Posh Script from the offcut of the frame.  Cut the top layer from a pink 6x6.  Assemble the greeting.

Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to tan and pink wool blend felt and cut Bunny Face and the ears.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps adhesives from saturating it.  Attach a scrap of black cardstock behind the eyes.

Cut the additional face section from Madras Plaid Coral and Green 6x6.  We're making a facemask here, even if pandemic rules are changing daily.   Cut 2 pieces of peach crochet thread or floss. Tape them - crossed - behind the plaid piece.  Attach the mask to the face and tape the thread/floss ends behind the face.

Attach the diecuts to the card.  Add pink Pastel Jewels.  

A simple change of greetings could make this a get well card - or a hello card for someone you haven't seen in a while.  Add a few pastel egg or jellybean diecuts - and it's an Easter card!

Thanks for visiting - have a great weekend.  See you next week!

Just a Note of Daisies
by Trina Pham

3349DE7B-E885-4840-BB93-6E7845605459


Hello everyone.  Since daisies are one of my favorite flowers (I have many 😁), I used the Daisy Blossom Stem die along with the Hex Half Pinpoint die and the Friends and Family stamp set from the new 2022 Spring release to create an all-occasion card. 

To start, the daisies and leaves/foliage were die cut from white cardstock and colored with Copic Sketch markers.  

Yellows: Y11, Y15, YR24, YR27
Greens: YG03, YG07, YG17, YG67
Greys: C00, C1, 0 (for shading the white petals)
 

03175127-744A-45E0-B28C-C4AA1608CFED

 

The hexagon window layer was created by joining two white woodgrain Hex Half Pinpoint pieces together.  For the background, Peacock Feathers distress ink was watercolored onto a scrap of mixed media paper.  Once it was dry, it was attached to the card base then the flowers/foliage were arranged and adhered to it before mounting the hexagon window layer over top with foam tape for dimension.  Finished with some clear shimmer on the daisy yellow centers.

With so many beautiful products, the 2022 spring release will not disappoint.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.
