Jaded Blossom – May Release Day 2

Hello everyone! It’s Day 2 of the Jaded Blossom release. Today, we are featuring the Bug Me Anytime stamp set and the Bitten Leaf stencil.

For today’s card, I ink blended with distress inks and the Bitten Leaf stencil to create a focal point for the cute grasshopper stamp from the Bug Me Anytime stamp set. I stamped the sentiment from the same set directly onto my white panel and adhered the grasshopper using foam dimensional adhesive. I added a couple of jewels from my stash to finish the card.

Jaded Blossom – May Release Day 1

Hi everyone! It’s time for the May release at Jaded Blossom. I’m so excited to be joining them as a guest designer this month.

Today we are taking a peek at the Love Bugs Stamp Set and Honeycomb Card Mat die.

My first tag features a cute bee and sentiment from the Love Bugs stamp set. I used the Bread Tag die from Jaded Blossom to create the tag. See that honeycomb background? I used the Honeycomb Card Mat die as a stencil to create it! It is hard to see in the picture, but I added some shimmer and glossy accent on the wings to make it shine.

My second tag uses the Rounded Tag die and a ladybug and sentiment from the Love Bugs stamp set.

Jaded Blossom – Monthly Challenge: Flower Power

Hi everyone. I’m guest designing this month for Jaded Blossom. Today is the start of their monthly challenge. This month’s challenge is to make a project with flowers.

Here is the card I made for the challenge.

I used the Village Windmill stamp set which includes these cute flowers. I stamped and cut out the images using my Silhouette Cameo. I then colored them with Copic markers. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, from the same stamp set, onto blue card stock and cut a fishtail banner on the right side.

I ink blended a sky and grassy knoll using distress inks and the Rounded Tag die. I adhered both the tag and the Windmill/flowers to my card base using dimensional adhesive. To finish the card, I added ribbon and twine to the top of the tag.

Thanks for stopping by, and I can’t wait to show you what Jaded Blossom has in store for you the rest of the month!

A Blog Named Hero – April Challenge

Hello everyone! It’s time for another challenge at A Blog Named Hero. This month’s challenge is Watercolor.

Water coloring is a challenge for me.  I tried a couple of backgrounds that I really didn’t care for. So I went back to what I’m comfortable with, water coloring with distress inks.

I used the gorgeous heart wreath stamp from the Floral Heart Wreath stamp set from Hero Arts. I stamped and heat embossed the wreath with Rose Gold embossing powder on water color paper. I then die cut the wreath with the coordinating frame cut dies.

I then water colored the wreath with various distress inks and a water color brush pen. I die cut a scalloped panel from gray polka dot paper and heat embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set.

I wrapped yellow and white twine around the bottom of the panel and tied a bow. I used foam adhesive to attach the panel to a white card base. I then adhered the wreath using using foam adhesive.

Freshly Made Sketches #422

I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge again this week.

I love pattern paper and have so many Echo Park kits that I need to use up. This sketch was perfect for using one of my Spring kits. Both the pieces of pattern paper and the tree came from the kit. I added a bow using coordinating green twine. Then stamped a small Happy Spring sentiment to finish the card.

Here is a look at this weeks sketch.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Blog Named Hero – February Challenge

Hi everyone. Hi everyone, it’s time for the February challenge at A Blog Named Hero. This month’s challenge is Birthday. I’m always needing birthday cards and this card is one that I could quickly make duplicates of.

I was recently at a stamp retreat, and we had a gift exchange. I received some water coloring supplies and was eager to try them out. I water colored a background with my new shimmery water colors.

Once that dried I stamped the large flower image and the Happy Birthday sentiment from Hero Art’s Togetherness Flower Bouquet stamp set in black ink. I stamped it a few times using my Misti. To finish the card, I added a few clear flat sequins.

A Blog Named Hero – January Challenge

Hi everyone, it’s time for the January challenge at A Blog Named Hero. This month’s challenge is Anything Goes. In 2019, I got on the blender brush train and I’m bringing that into 2020!

I used the Spiral stencil with three different distress inks for my background. You can’t really see it in the picture, but I did spray this with shimmer spray. I then used a rectangle die from my stash to cut out the zig zag panel.

I then cut out the Thanks Message Fancy die three times, once in a coordinating turquoise paper and twice in white. I glued these layers together to give the card some dimension. To finish the card, I added moonshine sequins from the December 2018 My Monthly Hero kit.
