Florentina Wreath Halloween Scene by Jean Okimoto

 

P1008954

The new Florentina Wreath sets the scene for a fall design of Halloween icons and bright orange glittered diecuts from the new Festive Glitter Pad.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a mix of favorites and the latest additions to my Memory Box stash.

P1009000

Prep the Florentina Wreath die by rubbing it briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help release the delicate sprigs and little pieces.  Cut it from a light gray sheet in the Earth Neutrals Collection.  

Cut the house from the Haunted House Dome Layer from Kraft Woodgrain paper. Trim the bottom edge. Cut the house again from the bright orange Festive Glitter Pad sheet.  Leave the orange glittered diecut in the die and pull the outer offcuts away - leave the little pieces in the windows and doors.   Attach bits of tape behind the windows and doors to keep them intact.  Remove the glittered diecut and attach it - offset - behind the Kraft Woodgrain diecut.  

Cut the ghosts - from the Haunted Entrance Dome Layer - from White Woodgrain paper. Cut the pumpkins from an orange sheet in the Sunny Orange Collection.

Diecut a strip of the same orange sheet with the Slim Confetti Plate.  Trim it to 4" x ⅝".

Score and fold a side-folded A2 card of black cardstock.  Trim ½" from the right edge of the card front.  Attach the confetti strip.  

Cut Slim Confetti Plate dots from a scrap of the orange glittered cardstock.

P1008958

Assemble the card - use a foam dot for the small pumpkin.

Hope you're almost ready for Halloween...it's just 2 weeks away.  Taste-test and enjoy a few pieces of the candy stash and make some cards this weekend!  

Thanks for visiting - see you on Thursday.

Black felt and Majestic Hues black glittered cardstock transform the new Serene Bird and Branch from sweet to spooky.  Build a Madras Plaid birdhouse and add some ghostly visitors and colorful Halloween candies. Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a few more ways to use the great new designs from our 2021 Holiday Collection.

Cut the solid House Frame Background from a Madras Plaid Coral and Green sheet, then cut the circle out.  Cut the circle frame from a brown sheet in the Earth Neutrals 6x6.

Cut it with the Gingerbread House Frame.  Assemble the house and tie the frame with gold cord.  Curl the cord using the side of a bonefolder or the plastic flower burnishing tool.

Attach adhesive lable paper or a sticker sheet to black felt and cut the Serene Bird.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps adhesives from soaking thru the fabric.  Cut the wings from the black 6x6 in the Majestic Hues Glitter Pad.  Cut the beak from orange cardstock in the Sunny Orange 6x6.

Cut 2 branches from Serene Bird set from the brown Earth Neutrals sheet.  

Cut the ghosts - from the Haunted Entrance Dome Layer set - from White Woodgrain Paper.  Define and eyes with a paper piercing tool. Attach scraps of black cardstock behind the faces.

Cut the candies - from the Gingerbread House Frame set - from pink and orange cardstock in the Berry Red and Sunny Orange 6x6's.  Cut the candies again from the black glittered cardstock. Assemble the candies.

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded A2 card of Kraft Woodgrain paper.

Joy & Cheer Florentina Wreath
by Angie Cimbalo

Close wm

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with this dramatic Christmas card made with newly released Christmas dies and gems. Have you checked out the amazing new products in the 2021 Holiday New Release?  

Here's a closer look at my card:

Close wm

And here's how I made it:


1) Using a finger dauber, ink blend Distress Oxide inks in rainbow order onto white card stock.
(I used Firebrick Red, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Lucky Clover, Prize Ribbon & Seedless Preserves.)

2) While the ink is still wet, add translucent sparkly embossing powder.

3) Cut both the background "Joy and Cheer" and the "Florentina Wreath" from the rainbow card stock

Here you can see the amazing shine from the embossing on the rainbow inks:

Close wm

4) Now cut the "Joy and Cheer" background die twice, and the top thinner die once from white card stock.

5) Layer and glue the background word die slightly off center, white, white, rainbow, and the add the thin white on top.

6) With the squares embossing folder, emboss a piece of black card stock 4" by 5.25", and then add the wreath and word die stack.

7) Adhere black panel to an A2 white card base and finish it with lots of "Autumn Fairy Gems" and "Autumn Fairy Crystals."

Here's one last look at my card!

Close wm

I hope you like my card for today and I have inspired you to add rainbow and black for a dramatic look on a holiday card! Check out the whole new release from Memory Box HERE!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow for more wonderful inspiration from the team!

DIY Wonky Frame Bat Attack by Jean Okimoto

Attach an intentionally-wonky frame around homemade ghosts for a very DIY Halloween design.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here after many hours of fidgeting with a camera glitch (online manuals*?#!!) - hope you're enjoying your weekend!

Here's a fall scene that started off with a delicate, straight big Stylish Rectangle Trio frame cut from a sheet in the Sunny Orange 6x6 Collection.  Dropped in on the table (w/adhesive!) and distorted it when I tried to retrieve it.  Liked the new weirdly-wonky shape and decided it would be scary and great for Halloween.  Things improved after that...

Cut the inner rectangle offcut with a smaller Stylish Rectangle Trio die. Cut it with the new Pinpoint Daisy Background.  Cut some black Majestic Glitter Pad dots with the new Slim Confetti Plate for accents.  The new Slim Confetti Plate is great, as intended, for backgrounds - and it's even better for diecutting a bunch of perfect dotty accents from all of the Memory Box Glitter Pads.

94551

Cut bats - from the Haunted Entrance Dome Layer set - from the black Majestic Glitter sheet too.

Cut White Woodgrain Paper with the two smallest Nested Globe dies and use a screwpunch to add eyes and mouths.  Attach black globe diecuts behind them.

Cut "boo" from the gold Majestic Glitter sheet and black cardstock with letters from the new Bennet Alphabet dies.

Attach everything to a top-folded black A-2 card. Isn't it great that Halloween cards are very forgiving...wonky frames and lopsided letters are OK!

Celebrate World Cardmaking Day with the Oval Snowman Collage from the 2021 Holiday Collection.  It's just one of many great new dies, 6x6 plaids and glitter cardstock and a beautiful assortment of fairy drops, crystals and dewdrops.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a frosty winter collage design.

Cut the large Stylish Rectangle Trio from white cardstock.  Cut the rectangle with the Oval Snowman Collage.   Color his nose and arms with orange and brown markers.

Cut a pale blue 6x6 from the Stormy Blue Collection with the Stylish Rectangle.  Save the delicate frame for another project - we're using the interior offcut here.  Cut the offcut with the top portion of the new Slim Confetti Plate.  Attach it behind the snowman rectangle.

Cut a 3-⅜" x 4" piece of a white 6x6 from the Delicate Pastels Glitter Pad.  Attach it behind the Stormy Blue piece to create a frosty dotted background.  Attach the 3-layered diecuts to a slightly darker blue A6 card (4-½" x 6-¼").  Attach the delicate Stylish Rectangle frame.

Cut the hat from black cardstock.

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.

P1008416

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.

P1008421

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.

Hi, Jean Okimoto here after my senior moments of confusion about post scheduling.  Hope you like this slimline mix of stamps, embossing and colorful layering.

Stamp the flowers on white vellum with VersaMark and emboss it with detail white powder.  Color it - on the reverse side - with cotton swabs and Distress Oxides.  Use  pointy cosmetic applicator cotton swabs for the narrow areas.  Add more ink - from the right side - to fill in any blank or light spots.  Colors used here are ripe persimmon, worn lipstick, wild honey and iced spruce.  Air-dry the inks, then cut it with the largest Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die.

A bold Slim Diagonal Collage creates an ink-blended background for the detailed Dreamy Freesia.  Coordinate the background with matching colors from the 6x6 Collections, then add a simple greeting and custom-colored jewels.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here with a summer-into-fall slimline design.

A strip of ink-blended cardstock from the stash was used here.  It's sprayed with a light layer of Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz and air-dried while I worked on the rest of the card.

Cut white cardstock to 8-½" x 7-⅝".  Score it lengthwise at ¾" and 4-¼".  The ¾" section forms a tab to attach the back of the card. Diecut Slim Diagonal Collage about 1-¾" to the right of the ¾" scoreline.  Cut it lengthwise for best results.  

Cut another piece of cardstock to 3-½" x 8-½".  Attach it to the ¾" tab.

Attach a strip of the ink-blended cardstock behind the Slim Diagonal Collage.  Fold the cardstock to the inside on the 4-¼" scoreline and tape the edges.

Cut Hello Cursive Script Circle from the turquoise 6x6 sheet in the Fresh Aqua Collection.  Leave the diecut in the die and remove the offcuts with a piercing tool.  Cut a circle of white cardstock with the 2" Circle Basics die.  It's smaller than the script circle  so the background is visible.  Dot the greeting with tiny amounts of glue then press the greeting onto the white circle.  Push it out of the die with the piercing tool.

Cut Dreamy Freesia with the green 6x6 from the Lush Green Collection.  Cut the flower and 2 buds from the dark yellow 6x6 from the Sunny Orange Collection.  

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

Color Clear Jewels with an emerald green Sharpie or Copic Marker.  Color a medium-sized Fairy Drops Jewel with a yellow marker.  

Attach the diecuts to the card - use foamtape for the flower and buds.  The layers, foamtape and yellow jewel create a card requiring additional postage.
