NEW RELEASE! Heart Pop Up Card by Sara Cook

Having fun with the new Valentine's releases. I have a project today inspired by my daughter wanting a surprise on the inside of the card.  It is a pop up card featuring the new Crystal Heart die.  

C067FE7B-CDB6-432B-815A-7562F2752C59_1_201_a

Pop Up Heart:

Take 140lb Open Studio watercolor paper.  Spray with water then lightly with ink sprays.  I used pink and purple Dylusions spray by Ranger.  Let dry and then die cut a heart using the 2nd largest of the Double Stitched Loving Heart Cut Out. Cut out the Crystal Heart die out of a darker color paper that matches the background heart.  Glue together.  Add some Drewdrop Fairy Sugar glitter glue to some of the open areas and then Glossy Accents to other areas, leaving some areas blank.

Sentiment:

Die cut the Big Hugs Scrip foreground die out of the sprayed watercolor paper and the background out of the same dark purple paper used for the Crystal Heart outline.  Glue together.

Front:

Die cut a lighter color purple paper using the Pinpoint Burst Plate.  Die cut a circle opening using the 24x24 Stitched Circle Layer die centering it over the burst. Save the cut out circle. Die cut a frame using the 28x28 and 24x24 Stitched Circle Layer dies out of the same dark purple paper.  Take a A2 size card base and temporary tape the Pinpoint Burst base on the outside.  To cut out the circle add temporary tape on back of the saved circle cut out and put back in the center.  Remove the Pinpoint Burst panel., leaving the circle die cut.  Line up the 24x24 circle die over the cut out circle.  Unfold the card so only the front panel will be cut through and die cut. Glue the Pinpoint Burst panel back on the front along with the frame and sentiment.

Inside Sentiment:

Use the "Sending" stamp from the Big and Little Words and "all my love" from the Big and Little Valentines to stamp the inside sentiment.  I used Monarch VersaFine Clair ink.

Inside:

Cut out a strip of paper 1/2"x31/2".  At one end score at 1/2" and add glue to just the 1/2"score . Place the strip of paper w/glue side up on inside of the card half way down from the opening and close the card until glue dries.  Glue the Crystal Heart on the strip centering it in the circle frame.  Trim off any excess paper on the right side of the heart.  Cut another strip of paper 1/2"x2 1/2". Score every 1/2".   Fold on all score marks.  Glue one end on top of the other forming a box. Add glue to 1 side of the box and place behind the heart. Fold down the box and on the opposite side (from the side glued to the heart) add glue and fold card closed to glue to back of card.  Cut random heart sizes from the sprayed watercolor paper using the Sprinkle Heart Collage.  Glue around the inside for more love.

Create a Tri-Fold Fall Collage by Jean Okimoto

P1001003

Layer the Wooded Glen and Little Orchard Collages and diecut a mix of tree backgrounds from 6x6 prints for a tri-fold fall card.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a collage-y, layered forest scene for a thank you or Thanksgiving greeting.  Here are the supplies for this card...

P1001023

I wasn't sure if I wanted a tall slimline card - or a shorter version - so I started with the taller version, then shortened it later.

P1000988

Trim kraft cardstock to 10-½"* x 6-¼". (*a correction!) Score it horizontally at 3-½" and 7".  Trim the corners with a corner rounder.  Cut Wooded Glen Collage from the front of the first panel on the left.  Cut Little Orchard Collage from the back of the center panel.  

Cut an assortment of tree backgrounds from the 6x6 dark red and coral Garland Stripes and Dots.  Cut more backgrounds from the dark maroon floral Garland print. (It's shown on the bottom left corner of the paper pack.)  Attach the backgrounds behind the tree trunks of both collages.

Stamp the greeting - from the Harvest Love and Kindness Clear Stamp and Die Set - on the smooth side of turquoise cardstock with Warm Breeze VersaFine Clair.  

Cut a 3" x  5-¾" strip of turquoise cardstock, round the corners and attach in to the third panel.  Attach the greeting with foamtape.

It needed a sparkly - but matching  - accent so I spread some Open Studio Sunlit Gold Glitter Glue on the dark red striped print.  Heat-set it in short bursts to prevent scorching.  Let it cool, then punch ¼" circles.

P1001015 3

The tree collages are designed for layering - but they're also great on individual panels.  Little kids would love the little trees - maybe with a bear or deer from the Snowglobe Backer set added just for fun.

Thanks for visiting...see you again next week!

Fall Greetings…Thankful by Jean Okimoto

P1170463 2

Gold embossing and ink-shading give a vintage look to the bold Halloween Pumpkin Clear Stamp and Die Set.  Add contemporary colors like chartreuse and dark teal to update it for a simple fall thank you or Thanksgiving card.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a big, bright pumpkin card.

Stamp the bold pumpkin on dark orange cardstock with VersaMark and emboss it with detail gold powder.  Stamp and emboss the extra leaves on chartreuse cardstock.  Cut the pumpkin and leaves with the coordinating dies. Shade and edge the pumpkin diecut with Morocco Memento Luxe and the leaves with Spanish Moss VersaFine.

Stamp the greeting - from the Harvest Love and Kindness Clear Stamp and Die Set - on kraft cardstock with Deep Lagoon VersaFine.  Emboss it with detail clear powder.

Attach dark orange (½" x 4"), chartreuse ( ¾" x 4-½") and dark teal (1" x 5") accent strips to a 5-½" square card of kraft cardstock.  Attach the greeting with foam dots.  

Add ¼" punched circles of the gold sheet from the 6x6 Holiday Glitter Pad.

P1170471 2

Square cards require extra postage and handling  - but this bold pumpkin deserves the attention!

Thanks for visiting...have a great weekend!

Share the Spirit of Christmas by Jean Okimoto

The Garland 6x6 prints are uniquely pretty - and perfect with the new Spirit of Christmas Clear Stamps and Dies too.  Add a diecut greeting and frosty white Poppystamps berries too.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a holiday design for you.

Stamp the poinsettia on orangey-pink cardstock with Morning Mist VersaFine Clair, emboss it with detail clear powder.  Stamp and emboss the leaves on matching green cardstock.  Cut both images with the coordinating dies from the Spirit of Christmas Clear Stamps and Die Set.  The stamps are bold and perfect for watercoloring...but I'll leave that for Dave and the coloring experts on our Design Team!

Stamp the greeting - also from the set - on white with Tulip Red VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink and cut it with the oval die from the set.  

Cut two berry sprigs from the Poppystamps Garden Leaves and Berries set from the white sheet in the 6x6 Frosted Glitter Pad.

Cut the corner floral print from the beautiful (and new favorite!) Garland 6x6 set with the 3-¾" x 5" Rectangle Basics die.  Cut white vellum with the 3-¾" x 2-½" die.

Attach the poinsettia, leaves and berries to the vellum with doublestick tape - liquid adhesives may curl some types of vellum.  Adhere doublestick tape behind the vellum where it'll be concealed by the diecuts.  Attach the vellum to the Garland print.  Attach the greeting with foam dots.

Attach everything to a white A-6 (4-½" x 6-¼") card.  Shake the new Open Studio Sunlight Gold Glitter Glue to blend the contents then squirt some onto scrap paper.  Use a skewer or toothpick to glitter the poinsettia and set it aside to dry.

The Garland 6x6 coordinates beautifully with many of the Memory Box and Poppystamps dies.  Mix and match them and create unique holiday cards for everyone on your list!

P1170291

Cut a solid orange background with the inner edge of the Snowglobe Backer die.  

Cut Haunted Entrance Dome Layer from dark brown cardstock.  Cut Haunted House Dome Layer from dark taupe cardstock.  Cut Winter Wood Dome Layer from dark brown cardstock.  Attach the orange inner dome to the Winter Wood Dome Layer - tape the pieces together across the back.

Cut 4 ghosts from Memory Box Watercolor Paper.  Cut the pumpkins from dark orange cardstock.  

Attach the pumpkins to the Haunted Entrance Dome Layer - use a foam dot for the smaller pumpkin.  Attach a small ghost to the dark taupe dome layer.  Attach a big ghost to the orange background.

Cut the olive green floral print from the Garland 6x6 pack with the largest Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die. Attach it to a top-folded white A2 card.  Tie a gold cord through the holes at the top of the 3 Dome Layers then attach everything to the floral print.  Add 2 more ghosts.

Shake the bottle of Goldfinch Glitter Glue and squirt a big drop of it onto scrap paper.  Use a toothpick or skewer to dot some of the flowers with the glue.

Winter Wood and Haunted Entrance Dome Layers aren't just for Halloween - use them for winter scenes over a snowy background too.  Add bunnies and eggs to the Dome Layers for spring cards in April. Thanks for visiting...have fun creating with the great coordinating designs!

Evergreen Sky Collage on a Snowspeckled Background by Jean Okimoto

P1160692

Build a frosty winter scene with the new Evergreen Sky Collage and Garland 6x6 poinsettia print, glittery birds and a majestic pine from last year's holiday collection.   Hi, Jean Okimoto here mixing classic favorites with designs from our 2020 Christmas Collection.  

Cut Everygreen Sky Collage from the Garland 6x6 poinsettia corner print.  Trim the paper to a 5-½" square. Cut the Delicate Pine Frame tree from the collage offcut and attach it behind the collage.  

P1160688

Attach a large piece  of the Poppystamps Snowspeckle Wide Washi Tape to a side-folded 5-½" square green card.  The blue piece below the washi tape is a strip of plastic cut from a dollar-store kitchen cutting board.  It keeps the tape's torn edge from sticking back onto the roll, helps tear the tape and keeps the tape from rolling away.  All of that from a skinny little piece of plastic!

Cut the birds -from the Delicate Pine Frame set - from the red glitter cardstock in the Holiday Glitter Pad.  

P1160700

Stamp the greeting - from the new Spirit of Christmas Clear Stamps and Die Set - on a scrap of the 6x6 print with VersaFine Clair Tulip Red.   Heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.  Diecut it with the matching oval die from the set.  Cut red glitter cardstock with the oval die and layer the pieces.

Shake the new Open Studio Sunlight Gold Glitter Glue vigorously, then squirt a big drop of it onto scrap paper.  Use a toothpick or skewer to add dots of it to the berry clusters.  Set it aside to dry.

Thanks for visiting - hope you'll look for ways to combine old favorites with new designs to greet the season.  See you again this weekend!

A Special Merry Christmas with a Small Pine Tree Collage by Jean Okimoto

P1160516

Cool winter wishes continue with more great new designs from our 2020 Holiday Collection.  It's the perfect mix of classic, contemporary, glittery, shimmery and artsy elements for Christmas crafting.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a little bit of everything from our latest release. P1160530

Cut the corner berries and greenery print from the new Garland 6x6 with the largest Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die.  Prep the Small Pine Tree Collage die by rubbing it briskly with a piece of scrunched waxed paper - to make it easier to remove the cardstock after diecutting.  Cut the collage.  Instead of pulling the diecut away from the offcuts - gently wiggle the offcuts away from the diecut.

Attach a piece of Poppystamps' Snowspeckle Wide Washi Tape to a top-folded green A-2 card - position it to fill the oval cutout.  Attach the diecut rectangle.

Prep the Special Merry Christmas die with waxed paper and cut the lighter red glitter cardstock from the new Holiday Glitter Pad.  Attach it with tiny dots of Aleene's Original Tacky Glue. 

Punch ¼" circles of the gold Holiday Glitter Pad cardstock.

Shake the new Ruby Crystal Glitter Glue to blend the contents, then squeeze a large drop onto scrap paper.  Use a skewer to add dots of Ruby Crystal to several leaf clusters.  Set the card aside to dry the glue.

P1160531
