The new Forest Path from our Christmas 2022 Collection is quickly becoming a Design Team favorite.  It's great for frosty winter scenes like Sara's and Trina's.  Add wide-eyed ghosts from the Ghosts in the Forest set - and it's a Halloween card too!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here sharing a fall scene with a combo from our Fall and Christmas Collections.

Prep the Forest Path die by rubbing it briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help release the tiny offcuts around the treetops.  Cut it from black cardstock.

Cut a piece of the dark gray/brown Earth Neutral 6x6 to fit behind the black diecut and attach it.  It's either an old country road winding thru the woods - or a muddy stream after a fall rainstorm.   Attach it to a top-folded dark orange A2 card.

Cut the ghosts from the Ghosts in the Forest set.  Love their faces!  Attach them to the background with foam tape.

Cut Boo Posh Script from black cardstock and the bright yellow-green Lush Green Collection 6x6.

Use a hard rubber brayer and frayed burlap Distress Oxide ink to highlight the texture of Kraft Woodgrain Paper.  Dry the ink and diecut Rickety House - just the main section, not the roof section.  Cut the roof from the dark brown Earth Neutral 6x6.  Cut a scrap of the yellow glittered Twinkling Jewel 6x6 for a sparkly door and windows.

Cut two of the new Alpine Snowflakes from the pink Delicate Pastel sheet too.

Cut the new Merry Christmas Curled Script from the gold 6x6 in the Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.  Notice how Dave Brethauer designed this delicate greeting so the bottom of the M in 'Merry' becomes the dot of the i in 'Christmas' - genius!

Glitter and Polished Foil papers highlight the new Celeste Snowflake Trio.  Scatter them over the new Celeste Plate background for a sweet and sparkly pastel winter scene.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a quick holiday card.  The intricate designs and details are all easy to diecut - all you need to do is attach them!

Prep the beautiful Celeste Plate by briskly rubbing it with scrunched waxed paper to help release the tiny pieces.  Cut it from white cardstock and attach it to a top-folded white A2 card.

Cut the Celeste Snowflake Trio from 6x6's in the Graceful Garden and Twinkling Jewel Glitter pads and the Polished Foil pad. It's easier to cut all 3 sizes from these 3 great artpapers - and you'll have 6 extras for future projects.

 

Stamp the greeting - from the new Sweet Christmas Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock with Pearlescent Jade Brilliance.  Peacock feathers Distress Oxide would match too.  Dry the ink, then trim the cardstock with the 2-¼" x 3-½" Rectangle Basics die.

Ghostly Garden Greetings by Jean Okimoto

 

P1019032

Transition from late summer to fall - and Halloween - with ghosts and the new Creepy Cabin.  The floral background from the Garland 6x6 set is perfect for summer, fall and winter projects.  Hi, happy weekend - Jean Okimoto here with another idea featuring a die from our Fall '22 Collection.

Cut the Garland 6x6 floral print with the largest Nested Globe die.  

Cut the Creepy Cabin die from Kraft Woodgrain Paper - leave an extra ⅓" above and below the bottom of the design.  Cut it with a portion of the 3" wide Nested Globe die.  Attach a scrap of the yellow Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad sheet behind the house to illuminate the windows and double-door.

The ghosts and bats are from the popular Haunted Entrance Dome Layer set - a favorite for Halloween cards.  Cut them from heavy white cardstock and Black Glossy Paper (it's very sturdy cardstock that's great for scored and embossed designs).

P1019038

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded green A2 card.  Add the large Clear Fairy Drops.  Cut an A2-sized rectangle of cardstock to protect the Fairy Drops and card for mailing.

A September Celebration! by Jean Okimoto

P1018948

Celebrate Stamptember with Memory Box and Simon Says Stamp!  Here's the fabulous new and exclusive Memory Box Beautiful Moments Stamp Set designed by Dave Brethauer for this annual celebration of design, creativity and inspiration.

It's a versatile, classic design that's only available while supplies last.  You'll love creating cards, layouts, journals and mixed media projects with this great set of clear stamps.

Hi friends, Jean Okimoto here with a simple back-painted vellum slimline design.  It's a classic botanical image that's perfect for any occasion.  

Prep heavy white vellum with the embossing powder tool to eliminate stray powder flecks.  Stamp the image with VersaMark, then emboss it with detail white powder.  Trim it with the 4-¾"x 3-½" Rectangle Basics die.

Dribble Distress Oxide refill inks onto a large acrylic stamp block.  I've used abandoned coral, twisted citron and mowed lawn.  Paint the reverse side of the stamped vellum using a barely damp paintbrush and the refill inks.  Airdry the inks.  

Stamp the greeting - also from this great new stamp set - on white cardstock with Tulip Red VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink, then trim the greeting with the 2-¾"x 1-½" Rectangle Basics die. P1018953 2

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card - 3-⅝" x 8-⅝".  Foamtape the greeting.  Use tiny pieces of doublestick tape behind several outer points of the stamped image.  

Add green Christmas Fairy Crystals.  Place a very tiny dot of adhesive on the vellum behind the jewels to secure the  three corners.

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

Here's a link to order your exclusive Beautiful Moments set - remember it's a limited edition exclusive, available only while supplies last.

Create a Starry Collage background for the new Flying Witch, diecut from black glossy cardstock and glittered 6x6's. Add a stamped, embossed "Boo" and turquoise jewels to complete the Halloween scene.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with 2 more great new designs from the Memory Box Fall '22 Collection.

Cut Starry Collage from a black A-6 card (4-½" x 6-¼").  Line the card with a 6" x 4-¼" rectangle of lavender cardstock from the Twilight Purple Collection.

Blend soft, overlapping layers of salvaged patina, cracked pistachio and wilted violet Distress Oxides on smooth white cardstock.  Cut it with the 2-½"-wide Nested Globes die.

Window cutouts, layered diecuts and the new Creepy Cabin create a Halloween slimline with little ghostly accents.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with two great new designs from our Fall 2022 Collection.  There's a lot happening on this card  - here's my attempt to prettify (is that a word?) Halloween in soft peachy colors.

Cut, score and fold a black slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½").  Prep the new Creepy Cabin die by rubbing it briskly with scrunched wax paper to help release the tiny and detailed pieces. Cut the card with Creepy Cabin and the solid Happy Halloween Posh Script background die.  Trim the 2 pointy pieces from the sides of the 'A' to make it easier to open and close the card.

Pressure-emboss the greeting background with the detailed Happy Halloween Posh Script die.  Cut the detailed greeting from a darker shade of peach cardstock in the Berry Red Collection.  Assemble the greeting.

Diecut a 3" x 8" rectangle of light peach cardstock with the Rectangle Basics die.  Attach it to the inside of the card.  

Cut the ghosts - from the Haunted Entrance Dome Layer Set - from heavy white cardstock.  Define the eyes using a skewer or pushpin.  Attach a scrap of the bright orange 6x6 from the Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad behind the mouth.

Cut the small pumpkins from the Haunted Entrance Dome Layer with the dark orange 6x6 from the Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad.
