Paper-Pieced Plaid Ring Stack by Jean Okimoto

P1008426 3

Great news...coral and pink join orange and black as Halloween colors this year! The Sunny Orange and Madras Plaid Coral and Green paper packs are filled with warm plaids and orange and yellow 6x6's for your Halloween cards. Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a layered slimline design for fall.

Cut ivory cardstock with the 2-¼" x 7-¼" Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles die.  Cut the rectangle with the Ring Stack.  Attach strips of lined doublestick tape behind the cutouts - Couture Creations  ⅛" tape is great for this.  

Cut the light gold 6x6 from the Polished Foil Pad with Ring Stack.  Cut the coral Madras Plaid sheet with Ring Stack too.  We're using the plaid oval offcuts here.  Set the gold Ring Stack outline into the taped rectangle. Attach the oval offcuts.  

Cut Jack o Lantern Bucket base from the dark orange Sunny Orange 6x6 sheet.  Cut the plain semi-circle and handle from black cardstock.  Assemble the bucket.

Cut the bats - from the Haunted Entrance Dome Layer set - from the black Frosted Glitter Pad 6x6 sheet.  

Stamp the greeting - from the Halloween Pumpkin Clear Stamp and Die Set - on the light sandy orange 6x6 sheet with Onyx Black VeraFine.  Quickly emboss it with detail clear powder.

Cut it near the left edge with the smallest Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles die.  Trim the excess on the right edge with a larger die from the same set.  It's a quick-cut custom-sized greeting strip without the measuring and trimming.

Attach everything to an ivory slimline card - 3-½" x 8-½".  Add orange jewels from the Bright Jewels set.

Birthdays happen - and some of us need a slimline card wide enough to hold a lot of candles!  The new Jumbled Line Collage makes it easy to create 21 paper-pieced candles with bright blocks of cardstock from our 6x6 Collections.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a birthday design - including a greeting from the Poppystamps Birthday Blowout Clear Stamp Set.

Our new adhesive Fairy Jewels are available in brights, pastels and clear gems.  I could have used the yellow jewels from the Bright Jewels set, but I wanted to check if the Clear Jewels could be custom-colored with Sharpies.  I colored them with alternating layers of yellow and orange Sharpies and let them dry while I made the card.  They passed the Sharpie test!

Cut white cardstock with the largest Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles die.  Cut the rectangle with Jumbled Line Collage. 

Cut cardstock from the Berry Red and Sunny Yellow Collections to color the candles - 2-¾" x 2" of the medium and dark pinks and 2-¾" x 1-⅝" of the yellow.  Tape them behind the collage.  Attach the rectangle to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-⅝").

Cut Layered Daisies, Layered Fresh Flowers and Layered Cosmos from the same pinks and yellow - cut two of the cosmos.  Cut Vertical Lines from a green sheet in the Lush Green Collection.  Assemble the flowers and attach them to the card.

Stamp the Poppystamps Birthday Blowout greeting on a light orange sheet from the Sunny Orange Collection with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair.  Attach it with foamtape.

Attach the Fairy Jewels for the candle flames.  It's easy to remove jewels from the plastic sheet if you wiggle them gently with tweezers before lifting them from the sheet.

Place a layer of cardstock over the card front to protect it in the mail - it may require special handling and postage.  

Hope your favorite storefront or online retailer has received the Under the Sea release so you can enjoy creating with it as much as we have!  Admire and be inspired by Dave's wonderful Idea Book.
