Last Minute Merry Christmas Cards
by Anne Thompson

On Sunday evening I realized that I needed eight more Merry Christmas cards for Monday morning.  What to do?!  Watercolor Forest Washi Tape, two dies, and some pearls to the rescue!

materials used

  • white notecards
  • WT500 WATERCOLOR FOREST GREENERY WIDE WASHI TAPE, 4.5 inches wide by 11 yards roll
  • MERRY CHRISTMAS POSH SCRIPT 94584
  • PP1018 WOODSY PLAID 6X6 PACK
  • white cardstock
  • CURLED HOLLY BRANCH 94599
  • small white pearls

to make these cards

IMG_3435-ink

  • Cover white notecards with the Washi Tape, smoothing out the tape as you go so there are no wrinkles. Because the tape is wider than an A2 notecard, trim the extra.  
  • Die cut the background for the Merry Christmas Posh Script from one of the brown plaid papers.  Because of the length of this sentiment, I reoriented the cards with the fold at the top edge before adhering it to the card front.  I used a glue pen for this.
  • Die cut the detailed words from white cardstock and glue them to the background piece.
  • Die cut the Curled Holly Branch from one of the green plaid papers and use Glue Dots behind some of the leaves to add one to each card.
  • Add the white pearls on the berry circles on the holly branches.

IMG_3437-ink

Phew!  All my cards are made and on their way, including some Winter Solstice cards to celebrate the turning of the seasons.  I am so looking forward to the returning of the light as the days grow longer little bit by little bit.  

May the New Year bring you joy.

Happy Crafting!

Snow Day by Jean Okimoto

P1010789 2

Glittered pink trees and a snowy background set the scene for a design from our 2021 Holiday Collection.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here - hope you're having a great weekend!

Snowmen usually wear a black tophat - but this snowgal has a poufy red hat instead. Her trees are pink,  not their usual green, and it appears to be snowing indoors.  

P1010880

Attach Flurries Wide Washi Tape to black cardstock.  Cover it with a sheet of printer paper and run it through the diecut machine between the usual plates to eliminate tiny wrinkles and airpockets.  Cut it with the Snowman House Frame - we're using just the interior section here.

Cut the frame from white cardstock and again from gray cardstock.  Attach the snowflake section to the white frame leave a small gap to insert the snowgal. Attach the gray frame behind it to add dimension and a little contrast on the top and right edges.

P1010848

Cut the trees from 2 shades of pink in the Berry Red 6x6 Collection.  Assemble the trees .  Shake the Open Studio Orange Sherbet Glitter Glue vigorously - then squirt ¼" dots of it on each tree section.  Apply the glitter glue with your finger - use a light tapping motion.  Set the trees aside to dry.

Cut the snowman from the smoother side of Memory Box Watercolor Paper.  Color the twiggy arms with a marker.  Tuck a bit of scrap paper under the carrot nose and carefully color the nose with a marker.  Cut the scarf from the dark red 6x6 in the Glitzy Glitter Pad.  Cut another snowgal from black cardstock, remove the arms.  Attach the black diecut behind the white diecut for dimension.

The hat is a DIY project - it's a little fidgety, but it works! Cut the red glitter sheet with the tips of the 2 tree sections that have rounded tops instead of pointy tops.  Trim them to fit behind the head - attach the larger piece first, then add the smaller piece.  Tuck the snowgal behind the inner edge of the frame.  Attach the trees - use foamtape for the big tree.

P1010861

Tie the frame with silver cord.  Curl the cord with the side of a bonefolder or the plastic flower burnishing tool.

Cut the greeting background from white cardstock.  Pressure-emboss it with the delicate greeting - use the rubber mat and plate(s) required for your machine.  Cut the greeting from a pink 6x6 in the Berry Red Collection.  Assemble the greeting.  Embossing the background makes it easier to attach the delicate diecut and adds dimension.

Attach the diecuts to a white A6 card (4-½" x 6-¼").

Thanks for visiting our blog.  Hope you'll enjoy some crafting time this weekend...keep warm!

Add glitter, dimension and a wide washi tape backdrop to the new Layered Poinsettia on a crisp white slimline card.  Sections of the beautiful Watercolor Forest Greenery 4-½" wide washi tape create a natural setting for a great new holiday item.  Happy weekend, Jean Okimoto here with a simple way to highlight our newest release.

Cut Layered Poinsettia from a bright red 6x6 in the Berry Red Collection.  Vigorously shake the bottle of Ruby Crystal Glitter Glue.  Squirt a blob of glitter glue onto each section and spread the glue with your finger to add a sparkly, glossy layer and highlight the texture.  Set the pieces aside to dry.

Punch or cut a 1" circle of the red cardstock to use as a base.  Crease the petals along the center.  Attach them to the circle base. Cut the center portion from a yellow 6x6 in the Sunny Orange Collection. Attach the tiny yellow center pieces.

Cut the Merry Christmas Posh Script background twice from white cardstock.  Pressure-emboss one white diecut with the delicate Merry Christmas die and the plate(s) and rubber embossing mat required for your machine.  Cut the delicate section from a dark green 6x6 in the Lush Green Collection. Attach the pressure embossed white diecut over the un-embossed diecut.  Attach the green diecut. Pressure embossing the background adds dimension and simplifies attaching the delicate green layer.

Streamlined, Delicate Slimline Thank You by Jean Okimoto

P1007430

Say thanks with Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape , a Vibrant Violet 6x6 and the new Delicate Wreath.  Add tiny blossoms from the Willow Globe die set and custom-colored Clear Jewels.  Top it off with the new Streamlined Thank You Script.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a quick washi-taped thank you.

P1007467

Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape is great for summer cards - just attach it to one of the 108 colors from our 6x6 Collections.  

P1007473

Chosing the right color for the background can be a little challenging and very sticky.  Here's a tip - attach the tape to a transparency or acetate sheet.  Or the clear poly bags that our dies and stamps are packed in.  Then just lay it over the background color choices to pick the best shade.

Attach the tape to the chosen color, then diecut it with the 2.75" x 4" Rectangle Basics die.  

Cut Delicate Wreath and Streamlined Thank You Script from the dark green 6x6 in the Lush Green Collection.  

Cut three tiny flowers - from the Willow Globe set - from a pink/violet 6x6 in the Lush Violet Collection.  

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-⅝"x 8-/1/2")  Color Clear Jewels with a violet Sharpie or Copic Marker.  Dry the ink and attach the gems.

P1007444

Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape is great with 6x6's from the Berry Red and Sunny Orange Collections too.  Experiment with the different papers and add custom-colored Clear Jewels for a quick card.

Celebrate a summer birthday with Layered Fresh Flowers on a soft background of Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a simple slimline design for a birthday gal who loves flowers.  

I usually decide on a design, then select the Memory Box items I want to use.  Tried the opposite approach for this card - I wanted to use the Stylish Rectangle Trio, 6x6 paper collections, Birthday Mail Posh Script, Layered Fresh Flowers, Clear Jewels and Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape.

Attach Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape to white cardstock and cut it with the medium-sized Stylish Rectangle Trio.  Remove just the narrow wedge-shaped offcuts - leave the delicate frame and large center rectangle in the die.  Add doublestick tape or tiny dots of glue, then flip the diecuts (still in the die) over and press it onto a white slimline card (3-½ x 8-½").  A quick background...done!

Color 5 Clear Jewels with markers - I used the bright orange and pink Sharpies.  Set the jewels aside to dry.  Clear jewels and markers make it easy to create custom-colored accents to complement your designs.

Cut two sets of Layered Fresh Flowers from two shades of pink 6x6 sheets from the Fresh Berry Collection.  Assemble the flowers - switch the colors of the roundish centers.

Cut Birthday Mail Posh Script from two shades of the green 6x6 sheets in the Lush Green Collection.  Attach a scrap of the lighter green behind the dot for the "i" in Birthday.  

Assemble the card - use foamtape for the big flower.  Add the custom-colored jewel stickers.

Take advantage of the floral watercolored look of the Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape -  and all of the color-matching options of our 6x6 paper collections  - to create unique color combinations for fresh floral cards.

Have you entered our February Pretty Purples Challenge?  

Here's a Spring Collection card with a mix of purples ranging from soft lavenders to bright violets, and everything in between.  Hi, happy weekend - Jean Okimoto here with a new collage die and two butterfly sets that just couldn't wait for warmer weather.

Cut an 8-⅝" x 7-¼" piece of white cardstock.  Prep the new Slim Diagonal Collage by rubbing it briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help release the little pieces.  Cut the cardstock with the Slim gDiagonal Collage.  Score and fold the cardstock at 3-⅝" for a slimline card.

Cut an 8-½" x 3-¼ piece of white cardstock.  Center it (temporarily) under the collage cutout and lightly pencil-mark the corners of the collage.  Attach Cornelia Violet 1" Washi Tape to cover slightly beyond the pencil marks.  Attach the rectangle behind the cardfront.

Cut the detailed Sylvan Buttterfly and Glade Butterfly from the Frosted Glitter Pad violet sheet.  Cut the solid Sylvan and Glade butterflies from scraps of ink-blended cardstock.  

Stamp the greeting - from the new Joyful Moments Clear Stamp Set - on the pale lavender dotted Springtime Bouquet Stripes and Dots 6x6 sheet with Imagine Crafts Neon Purple.  Heat-set the ink.

Punch ¼" dots of the purple Frosted Glitter Pad sheet.  Attach the greeting, then add the butterflies using foamtape.

Deep-Emboss the Floral Bouquet Heart by Jean Okimoto

P1003091

Dies are great for embossing but they sometimes need a little extra help.  Add extra dimension to your embossed designs with some behind-the-scenes washi tape and a diecut .  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a few techniques, delayed by many hours of internet connection challenges.

P1003012

Two special steps in the embossing process create smooth details and minimize splitting and cracking of the cardstock.  First - attach wide washi tape behind the bright pink 80# (or heavier) cardstock to stabilize it and keep it from tearing.  It's on the backside and won't be seen.  Cut it with the largest Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Out.

P1003017

Next, cut a scrap of cardboard with the Floral Bouquet Heart - use a metal shim for a smooth, complete cut.  Place the die over the pink heart as usual.  Place the cardboard diecut behind the pink heart so it functions like the bottom layer of an embossing folder. Tape the stack to the embossing mat so it won't shift.  Pressure-emboss it using the rubber embossing mat and plates required for your machine.  

Cut Sprinkle Heart Collage from pink cardstock and trim the edges.  Place a strip of the white sheet from the Frosted Glitter Pad behind the cutouts.

Cut BIG Hugs Posh Script from light gray and bright pink cardstock and assemble the double-layered greeting.Attach everything to a light gray slimline card (8-½" x 3-⅝").  Add  ¼" dots punched from the silver sheet in the Holiday Glitter Pad.

P1003064 2

Embossing adds interest to any project - let your Memory Box dies create focal points and backgrounds to complement your design without overwhelming it.

A Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape heart - layered over the new Woodgrain Heart - creates a quick Valentine  or friendship card.  Add a layered BIG Hugs Posh Script greeting and strips of gold glittered cardstock to balance the bold hearts - and that's it!

Hi there, Jean Okimoto here with an easy way to add interest and a watercolor-y look to the beautiful floral wide washi tape.  The tape is 4-½" wide - perfect for layering over the 4-½" wide Open Studio Watercolor Paper.

Sponge or brush overlapping layers of picked raspberry, squeezed lemonade and carved pumpkin Distress Oxides onto the smoother side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  Move the colors around with a large damp round paintbrush, the heat-set the inks.  It looks scary-bright here but it'll be softened and muted when the tape is applied!

Attach Sunset Blush Wide Washi Tape to the watercolor paper.  Place it between 2 layers of printer paper and run it through a diecut machine between the plates used for cutting.  The machine's pressure smooths small wrinkles and reduces some of the frostiness.

Cut the taped/colored paper with the second-largest Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die.  Cut pale peach cardstock with Woodgrain Heart.

Cut the solid Big Hugs Posh Script from slightly darker peach cardstock.  Cut the delicate BIG Hugs from a gold sheet in the Polished Foil Pad - leave the diecut in the die.  Attach strips of Diecut 'n Bond doublestick tape to the diecut and run it through the machine again to cut the adhesive.  Remove the officuts and bits of tape liner.  Press the diecut (still in the die) firmly onto the peach background diecut and carefully remove the die.

Cut 2 narrow strips of the gold glitter sheet in the Holiday Glitter Pad and trim the ends.

Attach everything to a cream A-6 card (4-½" x 6-¼") - use foamtape for the greeting.
