Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral Slimline by Jean Okimoto

P1012662

Hi and happy weekend!  Jean Okimoto here with a design to celebrate Valentine's Day, a special friendship or - planning far ahead - Mother's Day.  The Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral is my new favorite flower set - hope you enjoy creating with it too!

P1012729 2
Cut the base flower from two shades of pink in the Berry Red 6x6 Collection.  Cut the detailed top layer from the lighter pink 6x6.  Squirt and spread big dots (that sounds nicer than "blobs") of Open Studio Berry Mist Glitter Glue onto it.  Set it aside to dry.

Cut the leaves and two-piece layered center from sheets in the Lush Green 6x6 Collection.  

Assemble the flower and attach the leaves.

Cut the largest Double Stitch Loving Heart from a Madras Plaid Coral and Green 6x6.  Cut the second-largest heart from a dark red/coral sheet from the Berry Red set.

Cut a pink sheet from the Berry Red set with the smallest Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles die.  Cut another half-piece and attach it to the full piece to create a 7" strip - the heart diecut will cover the joined pieces.

P1012676

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½") - use foam dots to attach the plaid heart.  Add red Christmas Fairy Crystals.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting this weekend - see you next week!

DIY Hybrid Blossoms on a Slimline Thank You
by Jean Okimoto

P1012584

Mix and match design elements from the new floral die sets for hybrid blossoms on a slimline thank you card.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with an easy way to create unique flowers in your favorite colors.  I wish growing flowers could be this easy!

P1012651 2

Cut an assortment of Vibrant Violet 6x6 sheets with the Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral and Cottage Flower Stem Sets.  Mix, match and layer the pieces onto 3 flowers.  The smallest flower is a a pair of the Cottage Flower Stem's top layer - cut from different shades of violet 6x6 sheets.

Cut the leaves - from the Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral - from Lush Green 6x6 sheets.  The leaves are designed to be layered in different shades of green - but they're just one color here so they don't compete with the flowers.

Cut the flower centers from a lighter shade of green, spread Sour Apple Sparkle Glitter Glue over them and set them aside to dry.  The  two Cottage Flowers have a section of the Gentle Blossom's  center.  The Gentle Blossom has the Cottage Flower's center.  

P1012639

Cut white cardstock with the largest Wrapped Stitch Slim Rectangle die.  Cut the rectangle with the Vertical Line Collage.  Tape a strip of the dark brown Earth Neutral 6x6 sheet behind the collage.  Attach the rectangle to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-⅝"). Attach and assemble the flowers and leaves.

Stamp the greeting - from the Big and Little Reverse Words Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock with Verdant VersaFine Clair.  Quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder. Cut it with the matching die from the set.

Attach Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Enjoy the versatility of these new floral dies - and the great range of coordinating colors in the Memory Box 6x6 Color Collections.  Create flowers for all seasons and occasions by mixing and matching these great options!

Thanks for visiting - see you again this weekend...

Love flowers?  Here's a just-released floral design to add to your collection of Memory Box garden dies.  Hi friends, Jean Okimoto here introducing the new Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral set. Our 6x6 color collections make it quick and easy to find the perfect coordinating colors for the bold, detailed blossom and leaves.  Four shades each of the Lush Greens and Vibrant Violets are used here.

Cut the Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral pieces from dark pink, light pink and violet 6x6's in the Vibrant Violet Collection.  Cut the two-piece center from light and dark green 6x6's in the Lush Green Collection - layer them, then daub them with Open Studio Sour Apple Sparkle Glitter Glue.

Cut the leaves from light and dark green 6x6's.

I've used a scrap of watercolored paper from my stash - it's cut with the 6-⅜" x 1-⅜" Slim Basic Rectangles Die.  Add specks of Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz, air-dry it for a few minutes, then heat-set it.

Cut the Hello Friend Posh Script background from white cardstock.  Pressure-emboss it with the coordinating detailed die using the rubber embossing mat and plate(s) required for your machine.  Embossing it adds dimension and makes it very easy to attach the delicate overlay.  Cut the overlay from a violet 6x6 and add tiny dots of glue.  Press the delicate diecut down into the debossed greeting.

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½").  Add sparkly lavender Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones.  Cut a slimline-sized sheet of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Oops...I glanced at Dave's beautiful Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral on the envelope after the card was done - and realized I made several "leafy" errors.  The top leaf is upside-down, both leaves are in the wrong space and dark/light green shades are reversed.  Couldn't get much wrong-er than that - it proves how versatile this great die set is!

Thanks for visiting...see you again on Friday!

A Quartet of Snowmen Let It Snow Cards
by Anne Thompson

I continued to focus on this month's Snow Challenge and created a quartet of cards that feature the Oval Snowman Collage and a variety of backgrounds.

Card One

IMG_3424-ink

white on white on white

  • white notecard
  • white cardstock
  • SLIM CONFETTI PLATE 94551 cut from white cardstock and trimmed 4X5.25 and added to the card front
  • OVAL SNOWMAN COLLAGE 94608 cut from white cardstock and trimmed 4X5.25 and placed over the confetti piece
  • LET IT SNOW POSH SCRIPT 94583 with the solid background cut from a scrap of light blue plaid paper from the PP1018 WOODSY PLAID 6X6 paper pad and the script detailed letters cut from white cardstock, adhered together with a glue pen and added to the lower right 

IMG_3425-ink

Card Two

IMG_3423-ink

  • Same as the first card except that I added a layer of blue plaid paper behind the confetti.

Card Three

IMG_3421-ink

  • For this card I used a darker blue plaid paper as the first layer and added dots of DEWDROP FAIRY SUGAR 40125 glitter glue to the light blue squares in the plaid paper  pattern.
  • I also used Prismacolor pencils on the brown twig arms and the orange carrot nose.

Card Four

IMG_3422-ink

  • Here I covered the front of the notecard with a darker blue plaid papaer.
  • I used a 4X5.25 section of an embossed paper made with RINGADINGS  3D EMBOSSING FOLDER EF1015 for the layer under the snowman piece.

There is a lovely sentiment from the YULETIDE MOMENTS CL5274 clear stamp set to add to  the inside of each card:  May Peace, Love & Joy surround you like the first Snow.  

What snow we had yesterday went away with the rain overnight, so I'm still waiting for that first significant storm when I can build a snowman in the yard.  Then I will also pop these cards into the mail!

Happy Crafting!

Are you  almost ready for Christmas?  It's time to celebrate the season with a collage of holiday icons and lots of glitter.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here - hope your weekend is off to a great start!

Cut a total of 5 large and small Melted Candles from the white Frosted Glitter Pad.  Color the flames with a yellow-orange marker.  Cut the candles again from a coral 6x6 in the Berry Red Collection.  Attach the coral candles to the white candles - slightly offset so they'll stand out from the background. Trim the large candles to 2-⅝" and 2-⅜" from the top of the flame to the bottom of the candle.  Snip a tiny bit from the bottom corners so it doesn't look like you shortened them.  

Cut the melting wax pieces - from the candle set - from the same coral 6x6.  Spread Open Studio Sunlit Gold Glitter Glue over the diecuts, set them aside to dry.  Sunlit Gold adds a slightly deeper, glossy, glittery layer of highlights.

Cut the medium Geodesic Oval from a dark pink sheet in the Berry Red Collection.  Attach the candles and the melting wax diecuts.

Cut Holly Bundle from a medium-green 6x6 in the Lush Green Collection.  Spread Open Studio Sour Apple Sparkle Glitter Glue over the leaves.  Cut the berries from a pink sheet in the Delicate Pastels Glitter Pad.

Cut the Coral and Green Madras Plaid 6x6 vertically using the 1-¾" wide Slim Basic Rectangles Layers die. The plaid will be shorter than the die, but it's easier to diecut a straight strip.  Trim the top edge where it was attached to the paper pack.

Cut 2 pieces of the Poppystamps Grosgrain Ribbon from a light coral 6x6 in the Berry Red Collection.  Form the bow on one end by pleating a scored section and folding it back on itself.  Tape it so it won't unfold.

Attach the diecuts to a White Woodgrain slimline card (3-½" x 8-½"). 

The Berry Red and Lush Green 6x6 Collections have many colors to coordinate with the Coral and Green Madras Plaid sheets - create your favorite color combos!

Thanks for visiting - keep warm and have a great weekend!

Greet the season with an arrangement of garden diecuts - and more glitter!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a  slimline design of layered diecuts from the 2021 Holiday Collection.

Cut a vertical strip of the green/coral/pink sheet from the Madras Plaid Coral and Green pack with the 1-¾" x 6-¾" Slim Rectangle Basic Layers  die.  Trim the top edge,  and it'll be about 6-¼" long.  Cut Contempo Holly fron ivory cardstock - trim the rectangle portion to about 1-¾" x 4-¾".

Slide the lower right corner of the plaid strip under the holly stem and out over the Contempo Holly diecut.  It just adds some interest to the corner of the design...I hope!

Cut the holly leaves from a green sheet in the Twinkling Jewel Glitter pad. Cut 2 Gentle Pine Needle Sprigs from the dark green 6x6 in the Lush Green Collection.  

Cut Layered Poinsettia from a pink sheet in the Vibrant Violet 6x6 Collection. Vigorously shake the Berry Mist Glitter Glue container - then squirt about ¼" of glitter glue onto each section.  Spread the glitter glue - tap your finger over the glue to cover the diecuts.  Gently crease the diecuts along the center line.  Set the pieces aside to dry.  Punch or cut a 1" circle of the pink cardstock - it'll be a base to for the poinsettia sections.  Attach the pieces to the circle.  It's easier to assemble the poinsettia - and it adds dimension. 

Cut two of the poinsettia centers.  Assemble the poinsettia and add the centers.

MemoryBoxCoSmoothPineCone, MemoryBoxCo, HolidayDiecuts, PineconeDiecuts

Cut both Smooth Pine Cones from the medium-brown in the Earth Neutral 6x6 Collection - leave the pieces in the die.  Attach strips of lined doublestick tape to the back of the diecuts and run them through the machine again to cut the tape and make the pieces self-adhesive.  Assemble the pinecones - start at the bottom and work upwards.

Attach the diecuts to an ivory slimline card - 3-⅝" x 8-½".  Add Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut a slimline-sized sheet of cardstock to protect the card front during mailing.

Snow Day by Jean Okimoto

P1010789 2

Glittered pink trees and a snowy background set the scene for a design from our 2021 Holiday Collection.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here - hope you're having a great weekend!

Snowmen usually wear a black tophat - but this snowgal has a poufy red hat instead. Her trees are pink,  not their usual green, and it appears to be snowing indoors.  

P1010880

Attach Flurries Wide Washi Tape to black cardstock.  Cover it with a sheet of printer paper and run it through the diecut machine between the usual plates to eliminate tiny wrinkles and airpockets.  Cut it with the Snowman House Frame - we're using just the interior section here.

Cut the frame from white cardstock and again from gray cardstock.  Attach the snowflake section to the white frame leave a small gap to insert the snowgal. Attach the gray frame behind it to add dimension and a little contrast on the top and right edges.

P1010848

Cut the trees from 2 shades of pink in the Berry Red 6x6 Collection.  Assemble the trees .  Shake the Open Studio Orange Sherbet Glitter Glue vigorously - then squirt ¼" dots of it on each tree section.  Apply the glitter glue with your finger - use a light tapping motion.  Set the trees aside to dry.

Cut the snowman from the smoother side of Memory Box Watercolor Paper.  Color the twiggy arms with a marker.  Tuck a bit of scrap paper under the carrot nose and carefully color the nose with a marker.  Cut the scarf from the dark red 6x6 in the Glitzy Glitter Pad.  Cut another snowgal from black cardstock, remove the arms.  Attach the black diecut behind the white diecut for dimension.

The hat is a DIY project - it's a little fidgety, but it works! Cut the red glitter sheet with the tips of the 2 tree sections that have rounded tops instead of pointy tops.  Trim them to fit behind the head - attach the larger piece first, then add the smaller piece.  Tuck the snowgal behind the inner edge of the frame.  Attach the trees - use foamtape for the big tree.

P1010861

Tie the frame with silver cord.  Curl the cord with the side of a bonefolder or the plastic flower burnishing tool.

Cut the greeting background from white cardstock.  Pressure-emboss it with the delicate greeting - use the rubber mat and plate(s) required for your machine.  Cut the greeting from a pink 6x6 in the Berry Red Collection.  Assemble the greeting.  Embossing the background makes it easier to attach the delicate diecut and adds dimension.

Attach the diecuts to a white A6 card (4-½" x 6-¼").

Thanks for visiting our blog.  Hope you'll enjoy some crafting time this weekend...keep warm!

Holiday Greetings from the Garden by Jean Okimoto

P1010261

Create fresh greetings with garden dies from 2021 Holiday Collection. Open Studio Glitter Glue, Fairy Crystals and Fairy Jewels add sparkly highlights...a Christmas card isn't complete without sparkle!    Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another slimline idea for the holidays

Cut Curled Holly Branch and Pine Needle Trio from two shades of the bluish green sheets in the Lush Green Collection.  

Cut Layered Poinsettia from a coral sheet in the Berry Red Collection.  Shake the Goldfinch Glitter Glue vigorously to blend the contents.  Squirt some Goldfinch on the tip of each poinsettia diecut and spread the glue - start at the tip and work towards the base of each piece.  Crease them gently along the center line, then set them aside to dry.  

Cut or punch a 1" circle of the coral sheet and cover it with glue.  Use it as the base to assemble and adhere the poinsettia.  That's easier than trying to glue the pieces to each other, trust me - and it adds dimension too.

Cut the sheet from the Madras Plaid Coral and Green 6x6 with the 6-¼" x 1-⅜" Rectangle Basics Die - cut it vertically for the full length of the sheet to get the extra ¼" at the top.  Cutting plaids is so much easier with a die - no measuring or wonky strips! 

P1010284

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½").  Add tiny green Christmas Fairy Jewels and clear Christmas Fairy Crystals. Cut a slimline-sized layer of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

I love designing slimline cards.  They're a nice surprise for the recipient who didn't expect a handcrafted greeting in that skinny white business envelope.  

P1010302

Here's a better view of the glittered poinsettia. Goldfinch Glitter Glue adds a clear glossy background and sparkly highlights - and emphasizes the details of the diecuts.  

Thanks for visiting...Happy Thanksgiving if you're celebrating tomorrow!

Build a Knotted Circle Wreath base for the new Florentina Wreath and add sprigs of holly, pine and glittered berries. Coordinate it and the greeting with a strip of Madras Plaid Coral and Green in matching shades of pink, peach, coral and green.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another design from our 2021 Holiday Collection.

Cut Holly Bundle twice from the chartreuse 6x6 in Lush Green Collection.  We're using 2 large and 1 medium leaf here - save the extras for another project.  

Cut Pine Needle Trio from the chartreuse 6x6 too.  Trim the largest piece - it'll be the bottom sprig on the completed card.  

Cut the berries from a peachy pink 6x6 in the Berry Red Collection.  Shake Sunlit Gold Glitter Glue vigorously, then squirt some onto an acrylic stamp block - a solid, washable surface that's always handy for inky or gluey tasks.  Spread the glitter glue onto 3 berries and set them aside to dry.

Prep the Florentina Wreath and the big Knotted Circle by rubbing them briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help release the detailed diecuts.  Cut the wreath and circle with two shades of green from the Lush Green 6x6 Collection.  Attach the circle behind the wreath.

Cut a lighter green 6x6 with the 2-¾" x 4" Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die.  Cut a vertical 2" x 6-⅜" strip of the Madras Plaid Coral and Green sheet - there's a bit of extra paper at the top for that  additional ⅜".

Stamp the greeting from the new Yuletide Moments Clear Stamp Set - with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair - on a coral sheet from the Berry Red Collection.  Heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.

Attach everything to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½") - use foamtape for the greeting.

Designing and color selection is easy with the coordinating options available in the 6x6 solids, prints, plaids, polished foils and glittered cardstock.  Hope you're taking advantage of these great papers as you're designing and creating your holiday cards!
