HB2U - SAT dt

Hi there!!  Today is my turn to post over on the Stamp Anniething blog and I have a bright and cheery birthday card to share with you -


My niece is my inspiration for this card!  She is a baton twirler so I thought this sweet image from "Stacey - Celebrate" looked a lot like a baton twirler. 
  I colored her outfit to match my niece's outfit ;)  
I used the "HB2U music die" and cut out some gold metallic cardstock.  The background paper has some specks of gold metallic in it too so the two really compliment each other.  I added some diamond stickles to the outfit and the baton to add a bit of shimmer.


Here is a list of the copic markers I used -

Hair - E21, E23, E25, E27, E29
Skin - E00, E21, E11, E13, E04, R22
Dress - RV 63, RV66, RV69
Shoes - C5, C9
Baton - C1, C3, C5, Y17, Y11

Here's what I created -

For my first project I created a shaker card.  I used the "Diamond Dies" and cut out an opening in my base layer.  I also used two different sized diamond dies to create a frame for the opening out of some metallic paper.  The background is created using a stencil from Stamp Anniething and some distress inks and Nuvo glimmer paste.  I used the "Card Mat Dies" to cut out my background layer. I filled the shaker with glitter and sequins that coordinated with the colors of my backgound.  I stamped the sentiment from "Sparkle and Shine" onto the acetate using Stazon ink.  Lastly I colored up a gem from the "Gems" stamp set and cut it out and added a bit of sparkle with my Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.


For my second project I made a treat that I thought would be a perfect party favor or perk up for friends.  I used the "Luggage Tag Dies" to cut out my tags and then stamped onto the tag with one of the  "Friends Are Rare" stamps and colored to coordinate with the ring pop treats.

Now on to the HOP....

I used the "Falling Heart" stencil to create my background along with "Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick and Squeezed Lemonade" distress inks.  I used Jaded Blossom's "Card Mat Dies" to cut it out after I was finished.  I colored my image up with my copic markers and for my sentiment I used the "Hugs" die from Stamp Anniething.  I cut the word out 3x - 2x in black and 1x in bright yellow and did an offset with the black and yellow to help the word stand out from the background more.  I finished up my card with some adhesive gems.

You're a Fintastic Friend - JB dt

Happy Monday!!
Today is my turn to post over on the Jaded Blossom blog and I have a fun card to share -


I just love these fish from the "Make Waves" stamp set!!  I colored them up in the same color scheme using my copic markers.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I found some Doodlebug papers that matched my color scheme and used both the "Card Mat Dies" (this is my most often used JB die!!) along with the "Border Dies 2" (for my ocean floor) to create my background layer.  I popped the background layer up on fun foam and both my fish are popped up with foam tape to give my card some more dimension.   

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Bridal Shower Card - SAT dt

Hello there!! I am over on the Stamp Anniething Blog today with a wedding inspired card to share with you.  


I have a very special bridal shower coming up and wanted a special card for the bride to be!!  I created this for my middle daughter who is getting married in less than a month.  I tried to use her wedding color scheme for my card.   The sweet bride image is "Eloise - congratulations".   I tried to add a little bit of sparkle to her using some stickles.   Here is another view so you can see the shimmer ;)


The beautiful paper and flowers are from Recollections and I used a couple of Jaded Blossom products too -

Jaded Blossom June Release Day 5

Today is Day 5 of the Jaded Blossom June Release and we are doing sneak peeks for two new stamp sets -

Kitty Faces (freebie for this release)


For my project I used the "Gable Box Die" and cut out some polka dot paper.  I wanted my box to be open so I cut the front flap off and actually glued it to the back one since my paper was not double sided.  This also serves to make the back a bit sturdier.  I stamped the kitty image from "Mew Did It" and used a face from the "Kitty Faces" stamp set.  Lastly I stamped a sentiment from the "Mew Did It" stamp set onto a tag which I cut using the "Mini Tag Dies 3".

Thanks for stopping by today!!  I hope you will stop back at 4:00 PM PST for the June Release Blog Hop!!

Jaded Blossom June Release Day 3 Sneak Peeks

Welcome back to the Jaded Blossom June Release!! Today is Day 3 of our sneak peeks and we are featuring two new stamp sets - 



To create my card for today I started off coloring in a few of the images from the "Birthday Bandit" set.  I then created the background for my card.  I used the "Border Dies 2" to create a template and then using some distress ink I created a sky background on some Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper.  I cut that out with the "Card Mat Dies".  I also created some grassy hills using the "Border Dies 2" and the "Card Mat Dies".  The balloons are cut using the "Balloon Dies" and the sentiment is also from the "Birthday Bandit" set.

Today is Day 2 of the Jaded Blossom June Release and we are doing sneak peeks for one new stamp set and one new die set - 



I also used the Luggage Tag Dies for my project today.  I colored the cute sloth from the Take It Slow stamp set and also used one of the sentiments from the same set.  I stamped the sentiment on a word bubble from the new Word Bubble Dies.  Thought this chocolate bar would make a perfect treat for someone needing a little encouragement ;)
