Vibrant Violet Blossoms by Jean Okimoto

P1014582 3

Is spring your favorite cardmaking season too?   I love how layered blossoms and foliage create a slimline card for any occasion.  The new Fuddled Leaf Branches Contour Layers from Birch Press Design balances the bold flowers and Bright Jewel gemstones and Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad blossoms add sparkly violet accents.

Hi everyone, Jean Okimoto here with a very layered design from our spring releases.  The Memory Box 6x6 color collections make it easy to select, combine and layer diecuts in coordinating colors.  9 assortments - totaling 108 colors - create a lot of flowers and leafy backgrounds.

Cut white cardstock with the 7-¼" x 2-¼" Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles die.

Cut Ruffled Blooms from different shades of the Vibrant Violet 6x6 Collection.  Cut the smallest flower from the violet Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad 6x6 too.  Cut glittered Star Flowers too.

Cut the background of the Birch Press Design Fuddled Leaf Branches Contour Layers from a medium-green 6x6 in the Fresh Green 6x6.  Cut the detailed top layers from a lighter green sheet.  Leave the top layers in the die and attach ScorTape or Couture Creations doublestick tape behind the diecut pieces.  Run it through the machine again to cut self-adhesive layering pieces.

Attach the top layers to the background leaves - they're lightly scored to indicate where the top layers should be placed.  Here's a link to view the newest products from Birch Press Design.

Cut the 2 leafy branches from the Layered Star Flowers set from the darker green 6x6.

P1014656

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½").  Add the violet Bright Jewels gemstones.

Slimline card dimensions are great for collage-y floral and garden greetings.  They provide a lot of white space to balance the brightness of the flowers.  Slimline cards are also a nice surprise for a recipient who thought it was just another piece of mail.

Hope you'll have a chance to make a few spring cards this week.  Diecut a bunch of flowers, leaves and branches - then build paper bouquets for cards, layouts or mixed media.  You can never have too many flowers!

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

Poppy Love by Jean Okimoto

P1014552

Mirrored, glossy and embossed designs create a simple lovenote for any occasion - way beyond February 14th.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another slimline card from our latest release - hope you like slimlines as much as I do!   Neutral colors let the beautiful bright red Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad 6x6 make a bold statement on a simple design.

Pressure-emboss natural cardstock with the Geometric Crystals 3D Embossing Folder using the plate(s) required for your machine.  Trim it to about 2" x 5-½".

Cut Enchanting Poppy Stem's floral pieces from the bright red Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad sheet.  Cut them again from a medium-dark red 6x6 from the Berry Red Collection.  Save the extra diecuts for another project.  

Cut the stems and leaves from the new Black Glossy 8-½" x 11" Paper Pack cardstock.  Cut the leaves (including 2 of the smaller leaf) again from matte black cardstock.   Assemble flower tops and leaves.  

Cut the Love You Posh Script background from light Kraft cardstock.  Cut the detailed words from the Black Glossy sheet.

P1014571

Attach everything to a natural slimline card (3-½" x 8-½") - the flower tops first, the stems next,  and then the leaves.  Add gold Autumn Fairy Crystals.

Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting the blog - hope you enjoy creating floral cards with our Design Team.  I've reached my personal goal of using everything from our latest release - and will be using them many more times - here on the blog and for my card kits.   It's a great collection of versatile, mix-and-match-able papers and dies in classic designs for any occasion throughout the year

Special thanks too - to everyone who ordered my Cards by Color - Blush  kit from Impress and Roxanne!  

See you next week...

White and Bright Slimline Design by Jean Okimoto

P1014447

Are you ready for another floral slimline design?  Hi everyone, Jean Okimoto here with more March Challenge inspiration for you.  It's a mix of Memory Box and Birch Press Design - and the reverse of my usual bright flowers on a white background.  

Enjoy the versatility of our latest release - mix and match the diecuts, rotate them for a new look or layer them for extra dimension.  

P1014462

Blend twisted citron, salvaged patina and wilted violet Distress Oxides on smooth white cardstock.  Dry the inks, then add a quick spritz of Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz.  Let it dry, then cut it with the 1-⅞" x 6-⅞" Slim Basic Rectangles die.

Cut Daisy Blossom Stem from heavy white cardstock.  Cut the Birch Press Design Star Flowers Contour Layers too.

Cut the mint and turquoise Star Flowers centers from the new Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.  Cut a chartreuse center for the Daisy Blossom too.  Love how Rainbow Reflections colors match the Distress Oxides - the greeting too!

Assemble the flowers.  The top layer of the Daisy Blossom is used upside-down to create a rounder flower.

Cut the Miss You Posh Script background from heavy white cardstock.  Cut the delicate greeting from the violet sheet in the Rainbow Reflections set.

P1014442

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½").  That's it!

Chose your favorite colors and create a stash of ink-blended backgrounds for your favorite Memory Box, Birch Press Design and Poppystamps designs.  Diecut a bunch of blossoms, leaves and stems too - to save some time when you need a quick card.

Thanks very much for visiting our blog - have a great weekend!

Hi - Jean Okimoto here with some March Challenge inspiration on a floral slimline design.  The new Winsome Rose and Leaves Contour Layers set from Birch Press Design makes it easy to build detailed, dimensional blossoms with the Berry Red 6x6 Collection.  

Creating intricate layered flowers is simple with our 6x6 paper collections and the latest release.  It's like paint-by-number - with colorful cardstock instead of a paintbrush!

Cut white cardstock with Hex Half Pinpoint.  Cut it with a portion of the Pinpoint Leaf Plate.

Cut Verdant Arch from a light green 6x6 in the Lush Green Collection.  Cut the solid leaf backgrounds in the Winsome Rose and Leaves Contour Layers set from the same green 6x6.  Cut the detailed leaf overlays and the flower center  from a darker green 6x6.  Assemble the layered leaves.

The pinpoint background matches the Verdant Arch - and the Half Hex creates a solid backdrop for the bold flower to stand out.

Cut the Winsome Rose from 3 shades of Berry Red 6x6 cardstock.  Assembling the rose is easy - the 2 bottom layers have lightly scored guidelines showing exactly where the layering pieces should be attached.  Assemble the rose and add the green center.

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

Stamp the greeting - from the Signature Greeting Clear Stamp and Die Set - on white cardstock with Shady Lane VeraFine Clair.   Dry the ink, then cut the greeting with the coordinating die.  Cut green cardstock with the greeting die and attach it - offset to the right - for dimension.

Add pink/coral Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.  

The 6x6 Color Collections make it easy to coordinate colors and build layered designs like leaves and flowers. Folllow the outlines on the layering pieces for accurate placement - or create your own unique designs.  Have fun mixing, matching and layering the beautiful flowers and leaves in our latest releases at Memory Box, Poppystamps and Birch Press Design!

Vibrant Violet Wildflowers Slimline by Jean Okimoto

P1014083

Send big thanks with Vibrant Violet wildflowers on a white-on-white Twiggy Thank You background.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a slimline design with Memory Box garden greens and the Star Flowers Contour Layers from Birch Press Design.  

The greeting creates a monochromatic background for the flowers - and the bright flowers balance the bold Twiggy Thank You.

P1014102

Cut white cardstock with the largest Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangle die.  Cut the rectangle with Twiggy Thank You.  Very intentionally angled, not just slightly wonky.  Don't remove the diecut or the offcuts yet.  Tape the letters into the rectangle on the reverse side,  them remove the die.  

Attach the rectangle to a white slimline card - 3-⅝" x 8-⅝".  

Cut the Birch Press Design Star Flowers Contour Layers from different shades of the Vibrant Violet 6x6 Collection.  Cut the overlays and dotted center again from the violet/red Glitzy Glitter Pad sheet.  Assemble the flowers.  The base flowers are lightly embossed with guidelines for attaching the accent layers.  Great idea, thanks Dave!

P1014067

Cut Tall Frilly Leaf Stems and the larger Fresh Cut Stems from different shades of green in the Lush Green Collection.  Trim the bottoms of the Tall Frilly Stems.  Attach the greenery and blossoms to the background.  Add green Bright Jewels.  

Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.  I like using A-9 envelopes - instead of the standard A-10 business envelopes for slimline cards.  A-9's are slightly smaller -  about 3-⅞" x 8-⅞" - and great for slimline cards.

Cut two of the (slim-petaled) Riverbank Large Layered Blooms from a 6x6 sheet in the Twilight Purple Collection.  Cut the round center section from a light yellow-green sheet in the Lush Green Collection.

Attach the diecuts to the card.  Attach the leafy stems with foamtape microdots on the top 3 leaves of each stem.

Enchanting Poppy Stems add spring color to a slimline friendship card.  Layer them over an ink-blended backdrop and the Cascadia Background Strip.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another beautiful, versatile floral set from our February 2022 Collection.  

MemoryBoxEnchantingPoppyStems, MemoryBoxMissYouPoshScript, MemoryBoxOceanBlue6x6, MemoryBoxLushGreen6x6, MemoryBoxChristmasFairyCrystals, MemoryBoxCascadiaBackgroundStrip, MemoryBoxWrappedStitchedSlimRectangles, MemoryBoxCo, MemoryBoxDies, HandmadeCards, DiecutFlowerCards, SlimlineCards, FlowerDiecuts, WordDiecuts, DiecutBackgrounds, DiecutWords, DiecutFlowers, ImpressCardsAndCrafts, JeanOkimoto

Cut white cardtock with the 7-¼" x 2-¼" Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles die.  Cut the rectangle with Cascadia Background Strip.  Blend blue, green, purple and teal inks on smooth white cardtock - use a piece large enough for the background strip and the greeting background.  

Dry the inks, then spritz it with a light mist of Imagine's Sparkle Shimmer Spritz.  Dry it,  then trim it to fit behind the Cascadia border.  Skip the measuring and/or guessing - just trim it with the 6-½" x 1-½" Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangle die.  It's one size smaller...and guaranteed to fit behind the border! 

Cut the Enchanting Poppy Stems blossoms from two shades of the Ocean Blue Collection 6x6's.  Cut pieces of the middle-sized layers from the darker 6x6.  Assemble the flowers.

Cut the leaves and stems from a Lush Green Collection 6x6.  Brush a light layer of Pearlescent Thyme Brilliance onto the narrow accent pieces.  Assemble the leaves.

Cut the extra ink-blended cardstock with the Miss You Posh Script background.  Cut the greeting from white cardstock.  The tiny dot over the "i" disappeared somewhere between my diecutting area and my desk. I used a screwpunch to punch a tiny hole in the background.  The background will be layered over white cardstock and will match the rest of the greeting.
