The new Sunshine Daisy Stems can create the look of patient paper-piecing or "coloring inside the lines."  This is a lot easier!   Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a vellum back-painting technique - instead of attaching many tiny petals or trying to stay inside the lines.  MemoryBoxSunshineDaisyStems, MemoryBoxAutumnFairyJewels, MemoryBoxRectangleBasics, MemoryBoxWatercolorPaper, MemoryBoxPoshHelloFoilPlateAndDie, FlowerDiecuts, HotFoiling, FoiledCards, HotFoilAndDiecut, HandmadeCards, DIYCards, VellumCards, InkBlendedBackgrounds, JeanOkimoto, ImpressCardsAndCrafts

Attach a large piece of doublestick tape to white cardstock - Couture Creations tape was used here.  The taped side is the backside and the cardstock is the front.  Cut the 'open' Sunshine Daisy Stems die (shown on the left) three times from the front.  Remove the offcuts and save just the delicate outlines.

Cut heavy white vellum with the 3-¾" x 2-½" Rectangle Basics die.  Attach the three cardstock Daisy Stems to the vellum - the double-stick tape makes it quick and easy. Press Distress Oxides onto an acrylic block and paint the petals from the backside of the vellum - don't add any water.   Ink colors used here are dried marigold, squeezed lemonade, abandoned coral and kitsch flamingo.

Blend abandoned coral, kitsch flamingo and squeezed lemonade Distress Oxides on the smoother side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  Spray it with a light spritz of water, then let it dry. Trim it with the 3-¼" x 2" Rectangle Basics die.

Attach narrow strips of double-stick tape to the backside of the several painted vellum petals  and attach the vellum to the watercolor paper.  The tape won't show through the painted petals.

Foil black cardstock with gold foil and the Posh Hello Hot Foil Plate.  Diecut it.

Attach the diecuts to a pink A-2 card.  Add the orange Autumn Fairy Jewels.  

Sunshine Daisy Stems is very versatile - diecut stencils or pressure-emboss with it too. Or simply diecut and layer the blossoms for spring or summer cards.

The beautiful new Stella Butterfly and Background set is perfect with a leafy, flowery background. Try it with a Bubble Border too!  Add a diecut circle greeting and iridescent Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones to complete the look.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another new butterfly set from our May Collection.

Cut the detailed Stella Butterfly from the shiny aqua Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad sheet.  Cut the solid Background from a Fresh Aqua 6x6 sheet.  Cut the antennae/body from a gold Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad sheet.  Assemble the butterfly.

Cut a pale lavender 6x6 from the Twilight Purple Collection with the 1-⅞" wide Slim Basics Rectangles die.  Cut it with Bubble Border.  Trim the excess from the short ends.

 

I used a sheet of ink-blended and gold-spritzed Open Studio Watercolor Paper for the background.  Cut it with the 2-⅛" wide Slim Basics Rectangles die.  Trimming layers with the Slim Basics Rectangles dies saves time and eliminates guessing -  and those wonky edges.

Stamp the greeting - from the Friends and Family Clear Stamp Set - on the pale lavender 6x6 with Purple Delight VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink and cut it with the 1-½" Circle Basics die.

Attach the diecuts to a lavender slimline card (3-½" x 8-½") - attach foam tape to the center of the butterfly and let the wings appear to be floating over the background.  Attach the greeting circle with foam tape too.  Add the lightest Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones.  Cut a slimline-sized rectangle of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

 

Hope you're loving the May Collection as much as we enjoy sharing our newest designs with you!  Thanks for visiting - see you again this weekend.

A Trio of Ava Butterflies from the May Collection by Jean Okimoto

P1016439

Send caring thoughts and special hugs with a trio of the new Ava Butterflies.  They're diecut from pearlescent 6x6's in the Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad - and perfect when you need a really quick card.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another slimline design and a bit of rescued background paper from my stash.

P1016428 3

Cut Ava Butterflies from the pale blue, peach and aqua Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad 6x6 sheets.  

Sponge the smoother side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper with salvaged patina, spun sugar and broken china Distress Oxides.  Add a light spritz of water and let the inks blend a bit.  Heat-set it, then cut it with the smallest Stylish Rectangle Trio die.  

Here's my favorite way to align and assemble the new Hugs Daily Script greeting.  Attach Scor-tape to the top of white cardstock and diecut the solid background.  Cut the detailed letters from a teal 6x6 in the Fresh Aqua Collection.  Remove the diecut pieces, then place the letters back into the die. (That's easier than pulling the offcuts out!)  Save the tape liner and press the adhesive-covered background onto the letters. Use the saved tape liner to press the letters firmly onto the adhesive.  Cover the remaining exposed adhesive with Imagine's Iridescent Embossing Powder, tap the excess off, then heat-emboss the greeting.  It'll be straight, completely adhered and sparkly!

P1016457

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½") - use foamtape at the centers of the butterflies and let the wings lift at the outer edges.  Add turquoise Bright Jewels.

Thanks for visiting - have a great weekend!

Hello, Jean Okimoto here with the first of many new designs we'll be creating in the coming weeks.  The new hot foil products are designed with the same precision and attention to detail that Dave Brethauer devotes to the dies - so you know they'll be a great addition to your Memory Box Collection.

Let's start with the new Sunburst Hot Foil Plate - it's bold, detailed and perfect for any celebration.  It'll be great for the holidays too!  Prepare your foiling equipment and supplies as recommended by the manufacturers.  Foil the delicate sunburst on black paper or cardstock. Trim it to a 4" square.

Hot-foil the new Posh Birthday Wishes on white cardstock.  

Color the smoother side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper with watery, overlapping layers of the inks from the Melon Melody Kaleidacolor multicolor inkpad or any of your favorite inks.   Dry the inks, then spritz it with a light mist of Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz.  Dry the spritz.  Cut the paper with the new Intricate Mini Butterflies - a collection of very cool detailed designs. 

Cut white cardstock to 11" x 4-½".  Score it at 6" to create a 5" indented card front.  

P1016177 3

Attach the foiled sunburst and greeting to the card - foam tape the left ⅔'s of the greeting and let the remainder of the greeting extend over the edge of the card front.

Attach 6 butterflies to the card front - and 1 butterfly on the opposite edge.

Hope you like butterflies and flowers - they're great for any occasion and in any combination of colors, textures and sizes.

Magical Wreath Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I have a wreath card with a magical faerie scene in the center using the new Paisley Bloom Leaf Arch die set and Friends and Family stamp set.

75D1191F-0A2D-47C8-8FF9-F92FB6567AA0_1_201_a

Background:

Trim a piece of Open Studio Watercolor paper to 4"x5 1/4".  Die cut a 3 3/4" diameter circle in the upper center of the paper with Open Studios Circle Basics die set.  Spray each side with water.  On the front spray with Distress Oxide Stain; Spun Sugar, Villainous Potion and mica Hocuspocus.  Randomly spray with inks leaving some light and dark areas.  If it gets too dark after drying spray with bleach water and pad off with a paper towel.  Heat Dry.

2714885B-1706-4902-B034-0ACA5D7BB395

Sentiment:

On the lower right hand corner of the background, tamp and heat emboss with a white with glitter embossing powder the "You are Something Magical" stamp from the Friends and Family stamp set.

97186BC1-2EF4-40F1-B5BA-8E54F67AE305

Wreath:

Die cut the wreath branches for the Paisley Bloom Leaf Arch die set out of a mid tone color from the Lush Green paper pack 2 times.  Die cut the branches from the Layered Star Flower die set from a lighter tone color from the Lush Green paper pack 3 times.  Form the leafs on the branches by turning them upside down on a foam pad and taking a ball stylist and drag the stylist from the edge of the leaf to the stem.  Turn the branches over and take a small stylist and light push at the base of the leave on the stem to make the leaves pop more.  Spray with a clear shimmer spray to give a magical feel to the leaves.  I make my own out of water and perfect pearls.

A8D21C8D-FBBD-4D20-87C3-FEE3AA6035FA

Flowers:

Die cut the flowers from the Layered Star Flower set 4 times from white card stock, medium weight. Add some Distress Oxide Stain Villainous Potion to the flowers with a water brush.  I sprayed a little of the stain on my glass mat and then some water added a little of the purple to the water and covered the full flower.  Then take straight stain and add it to the center letting it bleed outward.  Spray with the same shimmer spray as the leaves.  Let dry.  Form the flowers with reverse close tweezers positioned in down the center of the flower petal and pinch the petal up over the tweezers.  Repeat on all petals.  Take a small stylist and push down in the center of each flower on a foam pad.  I randomly glued layers together. I add the glue with the flowers on the foam pad to push down until the glue dries to keep their shape.  This will get glue on your foam pad, I have a small section where I use to glue flowers together and another for forming them.

Faerie:

Die cut Poppy Stamps Thoughtful Faerie body from cream card stock, medium weight.  Then color with Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy.  Used a small tip dark brown water based ink pen to color in the hair.  Cut the body again but our of the dark purple paper from the new Rainbow Reflections paper pad.  Trim out just the dress and glue on the faerie.  Die cut the wing out of white from the Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad.  Glue over vellum and trim around the wing.  Glue the wing behind the faerie.

Assembly:

Spray the upper center of the white A2 card with Distress Oxide Stain Spun Sugar, masking the edges.  Add foam tape to the background panel and adhere the the card base.  Glue the faerie in the lower portion of the cut out.  Add a golden Fairy Gemstone  from the Treasure Chest pack to the hand of the faerie.  Take a gold gel pen and add dots around the gem then blend with a water brush.  Let dry.  Add some glimmer with a glitter brush pen around the cut out.  Around the cut out, adhere 3 wreath branches, tucking in the end of one under the beginning of the next.  Glue 2 large and 2 small flowers to the bottom left of the wreath and 2 small and 1 large flower to the upper right.  Trim some of the branches from the Layered Star Flowers and adhere around the wreath. Tucking them in and around the flowers as well.  Add a golden color from the Pastel Fairy Jewel pack to the center of each flower.

Bouquet:

Die cut the Tall Frilly Leaf Stems from a dark green paper from the Lush Green Pad to get 3 stems.  Die cut the Fresh Cut Stems dies, the ones without the flowers attached, from a lighter shade of green from the Lush Green paper pad.  (I love these paper pads with the different shade for die cutting.  It makes layering so much easier). Die due the flowers from the lightest aqua from the Fresh Aqua Pad.  Shade the bottom of the flowers with Distress Salvage Patina Ink.  Add a little yellow/bronw to the center of the flower with a water color marker, dabbing lightly. Glue the flowers on the stems.

Floral Watercolor Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I am using the new Gentle Blossom Watercolor Bloom die set with a subtle mixed media background.

5BB98E76-55AF-4ED2-913E-4A26C354D16E_1_201_a

Mixed Background:

Use a gel pad and brayer to add a water based ink pad in light blue and roll on the ink across the full gel pad.  Then add light turquoise just to the bottom half of the gel pad, blending the inks together.  I used retired Colorbox ink pad but Wendy Vecchi or Distress Oxides inks work well for the gel press as well.  Add small splatter all over with water down Brush ink in blue.  Take a print using a white mixed media paper. Let dry.  Add leaves using the Leafy Rows stencil and clear glimmer embossing paste to the lower part of the paper.  I used Dreamworks paste.  The paste smeared in 1 area so I smeared it over the top to even it out.  One of those accidents you can turn into part of the design.  The best reason to do mixed media is for this reason.  Let dry and trim down to 4"x5 1/4".

Flowers and Leaves:

Die cut out all the Gentle Blossom Watercolor Bloom dies out of Open Studio Watercolor paper.  I used a wet on wet technique to watercolor the first lightest layer of pink for the flower and green for the leaves.  Dry to just damp and then add more thicker paint in the center and let the paint flow out to create depth.  The top layers I used a wet on dry so the color is more bold.  Drying and adding ink on top for a more intense color.  Let dry.  Adhere the die cuts together using the back the envelope as a guide.

182C1FE4-70D2-4F9F-9D28-FADB7595985D_1_201_a

Sentiment:

White emboss the "Time to Celebrate" sentiment from the Joyful Moments clear stamp set on a light pink from the Berry Reds paper pack.  Trim to a rectangle around the sentiment and cut a larger rectangle out of black to layer behind.  Add the pink paper to the black with foam squares.

Assembly:

Adhere the background to a A2 size black card base.  Add a white piece of thin paper to the  inside of the card to write a personal message.  Take a piece of tulle and wrap a piece of 1/4" double sided tape.  add to the top of the background right above the embossed leaves.  Add the flower to the center and adhere the leaves around the flower.  Add the sentiment to the bottom half of the card.

Slim Pinpoint Heart Balloons by Jean Okimoto

P1012554

Send special hugs with glittered pinpoint heart balloons on a Kraft Woodgrain slimline card.  It can be a Valentine - or a friendship card just to say hello.  Hi, Jean Okimoto  here with a basic design that could work for birthdays too.  Or Mother's Day.P1012525

Cut the textured side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper with the top portion of the 
Slim Pinpoint Heart Plate.  Use a sponge or blending brush to color it with picked raspberry, abandoned coral and kitsch flamingo Distress Oxides.  Spritz it with a light mist of water to create some shadowy areas.  Heat-set the inks.  

Spritz it lightly with Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz.  Air-dry it for a few minutes then heat-set it.  

Diecut it with Balloon Bunch - place the die so there's a complete heart in the center balloon.  Leave the pieces in the die and tape them together on the backside.  It'll be a lot easier* to remove and attach the balloons and delicate outlines if they're intact.

Use dies from the Have a Heart set to cut a medium and 2 small hearts from a pink 6x6 in Graceful Garden Glitter Pad.

Tape white crochet thread or twine behind the balloon - cut the strands longer than necessary - it'll be easier* to trim them later.

Cut the BIG Hugs background from Kraft Woodgrain Paper (cardstock).  Pressure-emboss it with the delicate greeting to add dimension and make it easier* to attach the top layer.  Ink a scrap of watercolor paper with inks used for the balloons and diecut the top layer.

(*always looking for easier ways to do things!)

P1012567

Attach the diecuts to a Kraft Woodgrain slimline card (3-½" x 8-½") - use doublestick tape to attach the greeting (not glue) and balloon strings.  Add the orange/copper Treasure Chest Fairy Gemstones.  Trim the ends of the crochet thread.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front if it'll be mailed.

Thanks for visiting  our blog - hope you'll have time to create a few cards this weekend!

DIY Cottage Flower Stem Stencil by Jean Okimoto

 

P1011774

Looking for versatile dies? The new Cottage Flower Stem set cuts a freeform layered blossom - and it's great for cutting a stencil too!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a slimline design for a new floral die from our latest collection.

 

94611

Cut Cottage Flower Stem from a plastic stencil sheet for a durable, long-lasting stencils- or from printer paper or vellum for disposable stencils.

P1011854 3

Stencil the design onto the smoother side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  Distress Oxide colors used (in sequence) here are kitsch flamingo, worn lipstick and mowed lawn.  Mask the top of the stem and stencil the flower.  Mask the bottom of the flower and stencil the stem and leaves.  Heat-set the stenciled areas then stencil the darker pink overlay.  Dry the inks.

Sponge or brush wild honey Distress Oxide onto a scrap of the watercolor paper and cut the small dotted center section.  

Trim the watercolor paper with the 7.2" long Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die, then trim the short edge.  

Cut the pale pink/coral/green Madras Plaid Coral and Green 6x6 with the 5.9" long Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.

Stamp the greeting - from the Big and Little Reverse Words Clear Stamp Set - on natural cardstock with Brilliance Pearlescent Thyme.  Dry the ink, then cut the greeting with the set's matching die.  Trim the short ends.

P1011821

Attach everything to a Cream Woodgrain Paper (cardstock) slimline card (8-½" x 3-⅝").  Use foamtape for the greeting.

Attach yellow Treasure Chest Fairy Gemstones. It's easy to see the actual colors of the Fairy Gemstones from the reverse side.

Cut a slimline-sized layer of cardstock to cover and protect the card front for mailing.

Make the most of your Memory Box dies - use them to cut stencils and pressure-emboss too.  There are so many great designs to chose from - and so many ways to use them.

Thanks for visiting - enjoy your weekend!
