Quick-Stick Glitter Trick by Jean Okimoto

P1007181

Adding glitter to a watercolored background and attaching detailed diecuts can take a few minutes. Here's an easy way to do both - at one time!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a simple thank you from our Summer Daydreams release.

Cut watercolor paper with the 3rd-largest Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  Brush or sponge it with loose, overlapping layers of ink.  Blend some areas with splotchy, watery brushstrokes.  Distresss Oxide colors used here are squeezed lemonade, peacock feathers, twisted citron and cracked pistachio.  Set it aside to dry.

P1007155

Score white cardstock at 3-¼" and 6-¾".  Trim the cardstock to 8-½" x 7-½" - it's ¾" beyond the 6-¾" scoreline.  The 3-¼" panel folds inside to conceal the ink-blended cardstock.  The ¾" tab will be attached behind the back panel

Prep the Twiggy Thank You and Eucalyptus Collage dies by rubbing them briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help release the delicate pieces.  Cut the 3-½" center panel with both dies - keep them fairly close together to leave space on the short ends.  Save the skinny inside triangle for the "A" - and the oval inside the "0."

Attach Scor-Tape to the inked side of the watercolor paper - save the tape liner.  Attach the saved triangle for the A and and the oval for the O.  Place the cardstock - sticky-side down - on a nonstick surface.  Carefully attach the adhesive-covered piece behind the diecuts.  Attach the centers for the letters A and O.  Press it with the saved liner to secure the diecuts.  Brush ultrafine iridescent glitter over the remaining exposed adhesive.  Impress' Sparkle Glitter is perfect for this.

P1007194

Fold and attach the 3-¼" panel to the inside. Cut a 3-½" x 8-½" piece of white cardstock and attach it to the ¾" tab for the back of the card. Attach turquoise jewels from the Bright Jewels set.  Sounds complicated, but it's really easy and it's a process that works with all of collage dies.

Thanks for visiting- see you again next week...

Cut Imperial Castle Collage from light gray cardstock and trim the bottom and sides.  Attach it to the globe diecut.

Layers of Ocean Sights and Sounds by Jean Okimoto

P1006886

Imagine the sound of waves on the shore - or echoing in a pearly seashell - and create a slimline card of sunwashed pastels.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with some inspiration for July's Nautical Challenge.  There are many more layers than usual - hope you like the composition, textures and soft colors.   

P1006933

Cut the solid Grand Spiral Shell from watercolor paper painted in watery overlapping layers of pink, teal, cream and lavender.  Pressure-emboss the diecut with detailed Grand Spiral Shell die.  Cut the pale aqua Polished Foil 6x6 sheet with the detailed shell die.  The pressure embossing adds subtle shadows and debossed areas to secure the foil diecut.

Rub the Wood Grain Planks die briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help release the diecut.  Cut the planks from White Woodgrain cardstock

Cut the pale smokey blue 6x6 from the Stormy Blue Collection into 2 strips - 2-½" x 6" and 1-½" x 6".  Tape them to form a single strip.  Attach it - angled - to a White Woodgrain slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-⅝") so the spliced section will be covered by the tallest plank.  

Cut the straight rope from the End of My Rope Set twice from White Woodgrain cardstock.  You could cut just one and cut it in half - but that would involve too much thinking for me!  Just wanted it to look like posts tied with ropes, like down at the pier.

Color three Clear Jewels with a violet Sharpie or Copic Marker.

Attach the planks, ropes, and Grand Spiral Shell to the background - use foamtape for the plank on the right. Stamp the greeting - from the new You Anchor Me Clear Stamp and Die Set - on a light lavender 6x6 from the Twilight Purple Collection with Fantasia VersaFine Clair.  Attach it with foamtape.  Add the jewels.

Hope you're enjoying the Summer Daydreams Collection!  Thanks for visiting...

Balloons aren't just for celebrations and special occasions.  Why not send a balloon card to say hello and let someone know you're thinking about them?  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with two new designs from our Summer Daydreams Collection - the fun Ballloon Bunch and slender Twiggy Alphabet.

Spray colorful ink-blended cardstock with Imagine's Frost Sheer Shimmer Spritz.  Air-dry it for a few minutes, then heat-set it.

Here's a tip.  It's easy to find the right blend of colors for the balloons without the distraction of the surrounding areas if you cut a template from contrasting cardstock and use it to select the area to diecut. Place the die in the template and cut the balloons.

The "strings" are cut with the Graceful Jellyfish die, then trimmed and attached to the balloons.  

Cut the Twiggy Alphabet greeting background from a light green 6x6 in the Lush Green Collection.  Cut the contrasting letters from the turquoise Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad 6x6 sheet.

Cut the largest Stylish Rectangle from a dark blue 6x6 in the Ocean Blue Collection.

Attach the diecuts to a white A-6 card (4-½" x 6-¼") - use foamtape at the top of each balloon.

Add a small gold cord bow and sparkly Clear Jewels.

Why not make a bunch of balloon cards in different colors and have them ready for any occasion...or just to say hello?  As an alternative - cut the balloons from different colors of Memory Box 6x6 Glitter or Polished Foil Pads and use coordinating colors of our 6x6 paper collections for the greetings.

Thanks for visiting...have a great weekend!

A Little Sparkle Project
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_3243

Happy 4th of July weekend!  Today's project is a fun way to use leftover scraps of paper that we all have!

I started by going through my scrap basket and pulled some red, white and blue papers. 

Next, I tore them into strips, added some ink and stamping accents to give them some interest.

IMG_3217

IMG_3222

I cut a 5" x 7" background piece of cardstock to get an idea of how big to make my woven piece. Once I created the piece, I glued it to the background paper and spattered it with white and black inks.

IMG_3221

Next, I die cut the solid stars and frame using the Shining Star Die set.  I inked the large solid star with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink. 

I glued some black thread to the back of the large solid star and used foam tape to adhere it to the background. Next, I glued the other stars to the project.

IMG_3244

To finish the project I stamped and white embossed the sentiment on a strip of black cardstock and used foam tape to glue it to the background. 

Since I don't really send out 4th of July cards, I thought I would turn this into a home decor item.

I hope everyone has fun 4th!  Thanks for stopping by!

Diecut the Grand Tulip Shell from Recycled Paper by Jean Okimoto

P1006602

Do you ever save paper because it's just too pretty to toss...like the cover of  the Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad? Here's a way to use the glossy soft pastel-striped cover sheet - diecut the Grand Tulip Shell background, then top it with a delicate gold Polished Foil diecut.  

Hi, Jean Okimoto here with bit of up-cycling on a slimline friendship card.  My class kits are filled with Memory Box papers and cardstock.  I buy a lot of extras in addition to my Design Team supplies - and accumulate a lot of covers from the paper and cardstock packs.  Many are too pretty to throw into the recycle bin.  

P1006630

I cut the soft rainbow pastels cover of the Delicate Pastels Glitter Pad - the colors were perfect for the Grand Tulip Shell background.  Pressure-embossing with the detailed Grand Tulip Shell die added dimension - and made it easier to attach the detailed gold layer.  

Cut the medium-sized Stylish Rectangle from the creamy yellow sheet in the 6x6 Sunny Orange Collection.  Spritz the large center offcut with Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz.  Airdry it for a few minutes, then heat-set it.  

Color Clear Fairy Jewels with a dark yellow Sharpie or Copic Marker and set them aside to dry.

Stamp the greeting - from the Joyful Moments Clear Stamp Set - on a medium yellow sheet from the Sunny Orange Collection with Melon Impress Fresh Ink.  Heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.

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

P1006613 2

You can also create a striped background of the Delicate Pastels with 1" wide strips of the actual 6x6 sheets and diecut it for a sparkly shell.  It would be a pretty card for a summer birthday celebration.

Thanks for visiting - keep cool and safe this weekend!

Birthday Wishes with Layered Fresh Flowers by Jean Okimoto

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.

Turn the embossed Waves 3D design sideways and build a wavy seagrass background for the Deep Sea Octopus.  The irregular offcut from the End of My Rope die set creates a watery background for another Under the Sea design.  Freeform shapes, a peachy octopus and blue seagrass can add a summery look to everyday greetings.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another way to use the popular Waves 3D Embossing Folder - horizontally and embossed with iridescent glitter.

Cut a turquoise 6x6 sheet from the Fresh Aqua Collection with the large End of My Rope die.  Save the rope frame for another project - we're using the offcut here.  Brayer VersaMark onto the top section of the Waves 3D Embossing Folder. Pressure-emboss the offcut with the VersaMark-ed embossing folder using the plate(s) required for your machine.

Heat-emboss the offcut with Imagine's Iridescent powder for clear, sparkly highlights.

Splatter specks of Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz on the right edge of a natural A6 card (4-½" x 6-¼").  Set it aside to dry.

Cut Deep Sea Octopus from a dark pink/coral 6x6 sheet in the Berry Red Collection.  Attach a scrap of black cardstock behind the eye cutout.

Stamp the greeting - from the Big and Little Reverse Words Clear Stamp and Die Set - on natural cardstock with Warm Breeze VersaFine Clair.  Trim it with the coordinating die. 

Assemble the card and add some adhesive jewels to the areas of the background that weren't Versa-Marked.  Add a jewel to the greeting too.

Offcut Backgrounds for the Whale Family by Jean Okimoto

Create an underwater scene for the Whale Family with two offcuts from dies in the Under the Sea Collection.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with an easy way to build a wonky, abstract background from offcuts.  The Word Balloon and greeting are from the new Poppystamps Whittle Wonders Collection.  I buy Poppystamps designs to make card kits for Impress here in Seattle  and Stamps and Memories in Hawaii.  Memory Box and Poppystamps products are a great combination!

Cut the large frame from  the End of My Rose Set from dark purple sheet in the 6x6 Twilight Purple Collection. Save the rope-textured frame for another project - we'll use the big curve-y offcut here.

Blend turquoise, green, blue and purple inks on heavy white cardstock. Spritz it lightly with water and heat-set the inks.  Cut it with Deepwater Collage.  Save the outer collage diecut for another project - we're using the curve-y interior offcut again.  

Score and fold a side-folded lavender A2 card.  Use a corner rounder to trim the top left and bottom right corners to match the shape of the purple offcut - two rounded corners and two pointy corners.

Cut Whale Family from the blue-gray 6x6 sheet in the Stormy Collection.  Use scrap paper to mask the top portions of the whales and ink the textured bottom sections and the tail edges with Memento Luxe Wedding Dress.  Heat-set the ink.

Cut the Word Balloon from a scrap of the card's cardstock.  Stamp the greeting with Teal Zeal Memento.

Assemble the card - use foamtape for the whales.  Add jewel stickers from the multi-colored Bright Jewels and clear Fairy Drops.  If you're mailing the card, protect the card front with a layer of scrap cardstock.  Special handling and additional postage may be required for this card.
