Watercolor the Rose Bouquet and diecut it for a bright, flowery summer card.  Add a simple greeting - from the Jotted collection - and finish it with gem stickers.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with another design featuring the popular Rose Bouquet Clear Stamps and Die set.

Stamp Rose Bouquet on the smoother side of watercolor paper with Memento Luxe Wedding Dress.  Emboss it with detail clear powder.  

P1110524

Press the inks from the Desert Heat Kaleidacolor inkpad onto a large acrylic stamp block.  Spritz it lightly with a fine mist of water.  Colorwash the embossed image with diluted pink ink so the image is visible for detailed painting.  Paint it with diluted inks from the inkpad.  Dry it, then diecut it with the bouquet die from the coordinating set.  

Trim the diecut with the 4-¼" x 5-½"  Rectangle Basics die.

Diecut Hello Jotted Script from dark brown and coral creme cardstock.  Attach the diecuts to a side-folded A-2 textured natural notecard.  Add orange gem stickers.

Hope you'll try this design in other colors too - yellow, red, lavender or lilac are just a few suggestions.  Assemble the cards and have them ready for any occasion.  The simple greeting is quick and easy to add later.

Thanks for visiting...have a great weekend, see you again next week!

Share Happy Thoughts with the Brilliant Sunflower by Jean Okimoto

MemoryBoxBrilliantSunflower, MemoryBoxCircleBasics, MemoryBoxRoseBouquetClearStamps, JeanOkimoto, ImagineCrafts, VersaMark, Kaleidacolor, ImpressCardsAndCrafts.FllowerDiecuts, WatercoloredCards, GlitteredCards

Sunflowers are happy flowers...and a glittered beautifully-detailed Brilliant Sunflower sparkles on a watercolored background. Add a color-matched greeting from the Rose Bouquet Clear Stamps Set - and brighten someone's day.  

Hello and Happy Friday - Jean Okimoto here with some August Challenge inspiration. The new Challenge theme is "Some Like It Hot" - featuring warm reds, oranges and/or yellows on your entry.  

MemoryBoxBrilliantSunflower, MemoryBoxCircleBasics, MemoryBoxRoseBouquetClearStamps, JeanOkimoto, ImagineCrafts, VersaMark, Kaleidacolor, ImpressCardsAndCrafts.FllowerDiecuts, WatercoloredCards, GlitteredCards

Spritz a 5" square of watercolor paper with a light mist of water.  Roll a 4" soft rubber brayer over a Melon Melody Kaleidacolor inkpad to ink it completely - lift and roll it about 15-20 times for good coverage.  Spritz the inked brayer with water, then roll the colors onto the moist watercolor paper.  Set it aside to air-dry for a few minutes.  

Spritz it again to create some ink variations.  Dry it with a heat-tool.  Cut it with the 3-¼" Circle Basics die.

Cut Brilliant Sunflower and two leaves from green cardstock.  Attach Scor-Tape to yellow cardstock. Cut it - with the tape on the top - with the solid sunflower die.

Attach the adhesive-topped yellow sunflower behind the detailed green sunflower.  Brush iridescent glitter over the exposed adhesive.  I like to use Impress Sparkle Glitter - it makes everything look pretty.

Cut three ¾" circles from scraps of the watercolored paper.

Stamp the greeting - from the Rose Bouquet Clear Stamp Set - on smooth white cardstock with VersaMark.  Emboss it with detail clear powder.  Here's a tip I've shared in classes - start the embossing process by heating the backside of the cardstock for a few seconds, then finish it from the front for a nice glossy finish.  Set it aside to cool.

Sponge it with the 2nd green ink of the Melon Melody inkpad.  Gently buff the excess ink from the embossing with a soft tissue.  Trim it to resemble a label-maker greeting.  

Attach everything to a side-folded white textured A-2 card - use foam dots for the greeting.  Attach yellow gem stickers.

Enjoy the sun...but save some time to make a few summer-y cards with the flowers and butterflies from Memory Box.  They play well together...and the details are amazing!

Thanks for visiting...see you again on Saturday! Jeansignature-3

MemoryBoxRoseBouquetClearStampsAndDieSet, MemoryBoxRectangleBasics, MemoryBoxScribblePosiesOutline, MemoryBoxScribblePosiesBackground, JeanOkimoto, ImaigneCrafts, VersaFineClair, ImpressCardsAndCrafts, FeltDiecuts, FeltFlowers

It's a good day to send happy thoughts with the Rose Bouquet Clear Stamps and Die Set and felt Scribble Posies.  The diecut bouquet creates a bold - but delicate - backdrop for the posies and a sweet greeting from the stamp set will brighten someone's day.  Hello, hope it's a great weekend for you - Jean Okimoto here with a versatile design that works with just about any greeting from this uplifting stamp set.

MemoryBoxRoseBouquetClearStampsAndDieSet, MemoryBoxRectangleBasics, MemoryBoxScribblePosiesOutline, MemoryBoxScribblePosiesBackground, JeanOkimoto, ImaigneCrafts, VersaFineClair, ImpressCardsAndCrafts, FeltDiecuts, FeltFlowers

Stamp the bouquet on smooth white cardstock with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair.  Diecut it with the coordinating die from the set.  Trim the left and bottom edges with the 4-¼" x 5-½" Rectangle Basics die.

Stamp two of the leaves and diecut them.

Attach adhesive label paper (or a sticker sheet) to peach and orange felt.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps adhesives from soaking through.  Cut the big Scribble Posies Backgroud and  Scribble Posies Outline from peach felt.  Cut the center from orange felt.

Cut the Scribble Posies Outline again from peach cardstock - we're using just the delicate outline and center here.  Assemble the flower.

Stamp the greeting on smooth white cardstock with Shady Lane.  Diecut it with the ¾" x 2" Rectangle Basics die.

Attach everything to a side-folded A-2 card of textured white cardstock.  Add green gem stickers.

Felt comes in so many pretty colors - and adds texture and dimension to papercrafts.  Memory Box dies are perfect for cutting colorful felt accents and design elements.  High-quality wool-blend felt minimizes the fuzzies and frayed edges.

Thanks for stopping by - see you again next week!

MemoryBoxScribblePosiesOutline,MemoryBoxScribblePosiesBackground, MemoryBoxWrappedStitchRectangles, MemoryBoxFineCutLeaves, MemoryBoxWaveRibbonCollage, MemoryBoxBoldFriendlyGreetingsClearStamps, JeanOkimoto, VersaFineClair, ImagineCrafts, ImpressCardsAndCrafts

Bold, bright Scribble Posies Outline and Scribble Posies Background stack nicely above delicate Fine Cut Leaves on a simple summer thank you card.  Hi there, Jean Okimoto here with a quick and easy design today.  I love the look of stacked flowers and discovered that the Scribble Posies sets are great for improvising.

MemoryBoxScribblePosiesOutline,MemoryBoxScribblePosiesBackground, MemoryBoxWrappedStitchRectangles, MemoryBoxFineCutLeaves, MemoryBoxWaveRibbonCollage, MemoryBoxBoldFriendlyGreetingsClearStamps, JeanOkimoto, VersaFineClair, ImagineCrafts, ImpressCardsAndCrafts

Cut Scribble Posies Outline and Scribble Posies Background from bright pink textured cardstock.  Cut the Outline centers again from dark gray cardstock.  Cut a scrap of chartreuse cardstock to fill the center circle.  Stack and attach the posie layers.

Cut Wave Ribbon Collage from dark gray cardstock.  Snip off one of the  long lines - you'll be using it as a flower stem.  Use the other "stems" for more Scribble Posies cards.

Cut two of the smallest leaf from the Fine Cut Leaves set from dark gray cardstock.

Cut natural cardstock with the 3-½" x 4-¾" Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die.  Stamp the greetings - from the Bold Friendly Greetings Clear Stamp Set - with Verdant VersaFine Clair.

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded A-2 card of textured natural cardstock.  Add green gem stickers.

Big Butterfly Wing and the Rose Bouquet Clear Stamps and Die Set by Jean Okimoto

MemoryBoxBigButterflyWing, MemoryBoxOpenStudioRoseBouquetClearStampsandDiesSet, MemoryBoxRectangleBasics, JeanOkimoto, ImagineCrafts, VersaFineClair, ImpressCardsAndCrafts, ButterflyCards, FlowerCards, ButterflyDiecuts, WatercoloredFlowers

Sunny days bring butterflies and flowers - combine them on a watercolored card and you're ready for any occasion!  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a card featuring two of my favorite designs  - Big Butterfly Wing and the Rose Bouquet Clear Stamps and Die Set.  We're using just the stamps here, but you'll want the matching dies to extend the versatility of this great floral design.

MemoryBoxBigButterflyWing, MemoryBoxOpenStudioRoseBouquetClearStampsandDiesSet, MemoryBoxRectangleBasics, JeanOkimoto, ImagineCrafts, VersaFineClair, ImpressCardsAndCrafts, ButterflyCards, FlowerCards, ButterflyDiecuts, WatercoloredFlowers

Brush diluted Kaleidacolor Dye Inks onto the smoother side of watercolor paper.  I like to use a 6" square of watercolor paper to pick a pretty mix of colors for the stamped area.  Dry the inks, then give it a light spritz of water to add some little specks of color variation.  Air-dry it.  Cover it with a scrap of paper and press it with a dry iron on the cotton setting to smooth it out and prep it for stamping.

Stamp Rose Bouquet with Morning Mist VersaFine Clair and emboss it with detail clear powder.  Add some additional color to the top flower, little round seedpods or berries and the flower centers.

MemoryBoxBigButterflyWing, MemoryBoxOpenStudioRoseBouquetClearStampsandDiesSet, MemoryBoxRectangleBasics, JeanOkimoto, ImagineCrafts, VersaFineClair, ImpressCardsAndCrafts, ButterflyCards, FlowerCards, ButterflyDiecuts, WatercoloredFlowers

Cut smooth white cardstock with the 5-¼" x 4" Rectangle Basics die.  Cut the rectangle with Big Butterfly Wing.  Save the diecut for another project, we're using the offcut here. Cut the antennae and center section from dark gray cardstock.

Cut the stamped watercolor paper with the 5" x 3-¾" Rectangle Basics die.  No measuring needed - and it'll fit neatly behind the cutout without any watercolored edges peeking out along the sides.

Stamp "wishing"  - also from the stamp set - on a scrap of watercolored paper with Morning Mist.  Dry the ink, then trim it with the smallest Rectangle Basics die.

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded 5-½" square card of textured white cardstock - use foam dots for the greeting.  Add turquoise gem stickers.

Stamp the remainder of the greeting on smooth white cardstock with Morning Mist and attach it inside the card with foam dots.

Hope you'll experiment with different techniques - and supplies - and create your unique version of this bold summer design.  Have fun with it!

Big thanks to everyone from the BUTTERFLY WISHES class on July 4th!  I appreciate how you spent a few hours of your holiday creating cards with me at Impress.  Special thanks to Elaine for your cute and sweet patriotic candy treats!  And thanks Ann and LaVonne for working on a holiday and helping us fill those shopping baskets.  We're having a second BUTTERFLY WISHES class - along with the new SUMMER COLLECTIONS FROM BIRCH PRESS & POPPYSTAMPS class - on July 13th.  Looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend!

Challenge Inspiration - Scribble Roses and the Wave Ribbon Collage by Jean Okimoto

MemoryBoxWaveRibbonCollage, MemoryBoxScribbleRosesOutline, MemoryBoxScribbleRosesBackground, MemoryBoxBigandLittleWordsClearStamps, MemoryBoxBoldChristmasGreetingsClearStamps, ImagineCrafts, Mboss, ImpressCardsAndCrafts

Wonky offcuts of the Wave Ribbon Collage create a bold background for Scribble Roses on an inspiration card for July's Challenge.  Hi everyone, Jean Okimoto here with my interpretation of stripes for a quick card in shades of girly pink.

MemoryBoxWaveRibbonCollage, MemoryBoxScribbleRosesOutline, MemoryBoxScribbleRosesBackground, MemoryBoxBigandLittleWordsClearStamps, MemoryBoxBoldChristmasGreetingsClearStamps, ImagineCrafts, Mboss, ImpressCardsAndCrafts

Cut Wave Ribbon Collage from black cardstock - leave everything in the die for easy assembly later.

Cut Scribble Roses Background from three shades of pink cardstock.  Pressure-emboss them with Scribble Roses Outline using the plates and embossing mat required for your machine.  Embossing takes a few extra minutes but adds a layer of dimension and very cool shadows.

If pink isn't your style - shades of yellow, peach, lavender or violet would look great.

Cut Scribble Roses Outline from black cardstock.

Prep white cardstock with the powder tool to eliminate unwanted flecks of embossing powder.  Stamp the strip - from the Bold Christmas Greetings Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock with VersaMark.  Heat-emboss it with Imagine's Hologram Mboss.  It's a silvery powder with glittery highlights.  Trim it and tear the ends, like washi tape.

Stamp "hugs" from the Big and Little Words Clear Stamp Set on white cardstock with Charming Pink VersaFine Clair.  

Attach everything to a top-folded A-2 card of textured white cardstock - use foam dots for the greeting.  Add clear gem stickers.

Say Hello with the Rose Bouquet Clear Stamps and the Matching Die Set by Jean Okimoto

MemoryBoxRoseBouquetClearStampsAndDieSet, MemoryBoxRectangleBasics, MemoryBoxHelloJottedScript, JeanOkimoto, WatercoloredBackground, FlowerDiecuts, FlowerCards, GlitteredGreetings, VersaFineClair, ImpressCardsAndCrafts

Diecut a trio of flowers from the Rose Bouquet Clear Stamps and add a glittered greeting for a quick summer card.  Create a minimal, downsized version of the Rose Bouquet with the individual flower and leaf stamps. They're all included in this popular clear stamp and die set from this spring's  Garden Bouquet Collection.

Hi, happy weekend - Jean Okimoto here with another idea to take advantage of this great combo of stamps and dies.

MemoryBoxRoseBouquetClearStampsAndDieSet, MemoryBoxRectangleBasics, MemoryBoxHelloJottedScript, JeanOkimoto, WatercoloredBackground, FlowerDiecuts, FlowerCards, GlitteredGreetings, VersaFineClair, ImpressCardsAndCrafts
 Stamp the flowers and two of the leaves on peach and green cardstock with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair.  Cut them with the matching dies.

Paint watercolor paper with Peerless Watercolors.  Heat-set it, then cut it with the 1-¾" x 3" Rectangle Basics die.

Attach ScorTape to light aqua cardstock and cut the "hello" background.  Cut the delicate "hello" from white cardstock - leave the diecut in the die.  Use a piercing tool to remove the little pieces in each of the letters.  Place the die over the adhesive-covered background and press it firmly to attach the white diecut to the background.  Brush the remaining adhesive with iridescent glitter - like Impress' Sparkle Glitter.

Attach the diecuts to a side-folded white A-2 card - use foam dots for the smallest flower.  Add orange gem stickers.

We're already into the second week of summer - and there are still so many more ways to use the great Garden Bouquet Collection.  Combine it with some beautiful butterflies from our January release for very special summer cards!

We'll be doing some of that  in the BUTTERFLY WISHES class at Impress on the 4th of July.  Dies, stamps,  origami, embossing, glitter, and the new Imagine Sheer Shimmer Stix create great greetings for any occasion. Join us if you're in the Seattle area!

MemoryBoxRoseBouquetClearStampSet, MemoryBoxSendingJottedScript, MemoryBoxRectangleBasics, MemoryBoxHaveAHeartDieSet, JeanOkimoto, ImagIneCrafts, Mboss, VersaFineClair, ImpressCardsAndCrafts, FlowerCards, HeartCards

Brighten someone's day with a heart-shaped diecut of the beautiful Rose Bouquet - and  send some hugs and happy thoughts.  There are so many ways to use this great clear stamp set!   Hi -  Jean Okimoto here with an easy design that doesn't even require coloring - let bright cardstock add the color.

MemoryBoxRoseBouquetClearStampSet, MemoryBoxSendingJottedScript, MemoryBoxRectangleBasics, MemoryBoxHaveAHeartDieSet, JeanOkimoto, ImagIneCrafts, Mboss, VersaFineClair, ImpressCardsAndCrafts, FlowerCards, HeartCards

Stamp the bouquet on the smoother side of Coral Creme cardstock with Morning Mist VersaFine Clair.  Emboss it with the new Imagine Iridescent Mboss to add a glossy finish and shimmery, glittery sparkle.  Cut it with the 3" tall (approximately) Have a Heart die.  

Cut Juicy Pear cardstock with the 3" X 4-¼" Rectangle Basics die.  Pressure-emboss the Sending Jotted Script background near the bottom edge.  It adds dimension - without the glue!

Cut the delicate "sending" from dark gray cardstock.  Attach it to the pressure-embossed greeting background.  Here's a timesaver - leave the tiny dot of the "i" in the die till you need it.  Then just place a bit of glue on the background, position the dot (still in the die) over the glue and push it out with a pokey tool.

Stamp "happy thoughts" - from the Rose Bouquet stamp set - on Juicy Pear cardstock with Morning Mist.  Dry the ink, then trim it into a narrow strip.

Cut a ¾" x 5-¼" strip of Navajo cardstock.  Cut a 4" x ¾" strip of Coral Creme cardstock.

Attach everything to a Kraft A-6 card.  - use foam dots for the greeting and the top portion of the heart.  Add clear gem stickers.

MemoryBoxRoseBouquetClearStampSet, MemoryBoxSendingJottedScript, MemoryBoxRectangleBasics, MemoryBoxHaveAHeartDieSet, JeanOkimoto, ImagIneCrafts, Mboss, VersaFineClair, ImpressCardsAndCrafts, FlowerCards, HeartCards

Hope the Rose Bouquet stamp set is becoming a favorite of yours too.    There are so many ways to use this great design - maybe some tags next time?

Big thanks to everyone  from my SEATTLE STYLE and OUTSIDE THE BOX classes last weekend!  Special thanks to Jenny for her popcorn snacks  - you're spoiling us!  I appreciate how everyone drove - or ferried - to join our classes.  Thanks too - Erin and Lynne - for helping us shop!

Bright Mbossed Brilliant Sunflower and Bold Friendly Greetings by Jean Okimoto

MemoryBoxBrilliantSunflower, MemoryBoxCircleBasics, MemoryBoxBoldFriendlyGreetingsClearStampSet, MemoryBoxNotecards, ImagineCrafts, MbossEmbossingPowder, ImpressCardsAndCrafts. WashiTapeStamps, FlowerDiecuts

Send a note of appreciation with a brightly-embossed Brilliant Sunflower - and a thank you from the Bold Friendly Greetings Clear Stamp Set.  Hello - Jean Okimoto here with a sunny design in just three  colors on a fresh Lemon Grass Notecard.  It's probably the first time I've made a card with just three colors - that's all you'll need with these great dies and stamps! 

P1110030

Cut watercolor paper with the 3-¼"  Circle Basics die.  Pressure-emboss it with the Brilliant Sunflower using the plates and embossing mat required for your machine.  A portion of the outer edge will be cut off - but it'll be completely covered by the black diecut.

Cut a stencil from a Post-It with the solid flower from the die set.  Sponge VersaMark onto the embossed flower through the stencil.  Don't remove the stencil.  It'll  keep stray specks of powder away from the adjacent areas.  Heat-emboss it with the new Imagine Yellow Mboss, remove the stencil when it's cooled to room temperature.  

That little semi-circle on the top edge of the Mboss packet is a little section I snipped from the back edge above the zip-seal to make it easier to re-open the packet.  It's visible through the front layer of the translucent packet.  Not a major breakthrough in packaging, but it makes life easier!

Cut Brilliant Sunflower from black cardstock.  Daub VersaMark over the center of the flower with a cotton swab.  Sprinkle it with Mboss, firmly tap off the excess powder, then heat-emboss it.  

Diecut two black leaves.

Attach the black diecuts to the embossed sunflower and the background.

Prep black cardstock with the embossing powder tool.  Stamp the dotted strip and greeting from the Bold Friendly Greetings Clear Stamp Set with VersaMark and emboss them with more Yellow Mboss. Tear the  strip ends to resemble washi tape.  Yellow is just one of 38 powders in the new Mboss Collection.  They come in sturdy store-and-pour resealable pouches.

Attach the diecuts to a Lemon Grass Notecard.  Add the greeting (with foam dots) and yellow gem stickers.

Celebrate summer's arrival with flowers - our Garden Bouquet Collection is literally a bouquet of beautiful designs for any occasion!

If you're in the Seattle area this weekend - join us for two classes at Impress on June 22nd.  It's another SEATTLE STYLE class at 10:30 - featuring favorite locally-designed stamps and dies.  Then it's OUTSIDE THE BOX at 1:30 - make variations of cards I've shared here on Outside the Box.   A ton of diecuts, some stamps, great papers and a lot of techniques in both classes!

Just a Little Note with Scribble Roses and the Rose Bouquet by Jean Okimoto

P1100978

Sending a little note is thoughtful - and creative - with the Rose Bouquet Clear Stamp Set and the Scribble Roses.  Happy weekend - Jean Okimoto here with a flowery felt design featuring our Garden Bouquet Collection.  

P1110007

Stamp the bouquet on pale gray cardstock with Morning Mist VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink.   Trim the stamped image with the coordinating Rose Bouquet die.  Cut another Rose Bouquet from the same cardstock and attach it behind the stamped diecut for dimension.

Trim the left side of the double layer with the 4-¼" x 5-½" Rectangle Basics die.  Attach it to a side-folded pale gray A-2 card.

Cut Scribble Roses Outline from dark gray cardstock.

Attach adhesive label paper - or a sticker sheet - to light pink, bright pink and light peach wool-blend felt.  Cut the Scribble Roses Background.  Assemble the roses and add them to the card.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps adhesives from soaking through. 

Stamp the greeting - also from the Rose Bouquet Clear Stamp Set - on light pink cardstock with Morning Mist.  Dry the ink, then trim the greeting with the smallest Rectangle Basics die.  Attach it with foam dots.

Add orange gem stickers.

P1100986

Hope you like flowery cards - and felt diecuts too!  There are so many ways to combine the beautiful florals from the Garden Bouquet Collection - it's versatile, timeless - and my new favorite!  

Thanks for visiting - have a fun weekend and I'll see you again next week...
