Black Widow

It's Tuesday!!! Yay! I get to share a project with you using goodies from Jaded Blossom!

I was in Kansas City two weekends ago to see my niece graduate which was awesome and while I was there my brother, husband, and I took her to Comicon! We had a great time and saw lots of incredible art of all our favorite super heroes and Anime. And seeing it all got me in the mood to make another Super Hero card. So this time I made a card with Black Widow.


From Jaded Blossom, I used Card Mat Dies and Super Hero! The Black Widow SVG is from Little Scraps of Heaven and the background paper is Sandylion's Marvel Comics collection. 

Thanks for letting me share with you today!

Blessings,

You're a Star!

I'm sharing today on the Jaded Blossom blog. Yay!!!

Today I have a simple card that would be a perfect baby card for a sweet boy! And  I'm sure we could find other occasions for it too!


I used the Card Mat Dies and the Superstar stamp set from Jaded Blossom. I also used the Stars Card Front Overlay and the Kawaii Starfish from SVG Cutting Files.

I cut out the background first with my Cameo and then put it through my Cuttlebug with the largest of the Card Mat Dies. I also die cut a piece of yellow cardstock. I then glued both layers together and attached them to the card base. I stamped my sentiment and arranged my stars from the Starfish file on the front attaching them with foam squares.

So glad you came by to have a look! Have a fantastic Tuesday!!!

Blessings,

Jaded Blossom May Release Blog Hop!

Hey Everyone! 


Now, if you're here from Lee-Ann's blog, you're in the right place; but if you're just passing through, start at the beginning because you don't want to miss a thing.  I have the complete line up at the bottom of this post. 
Here is what I made:


Well I know that I made a card for you yesterday with this turtle, but it is just so cute that I couldn't help myself to use it again today for the hop!!! Today I have a little gift set to give to a new or expecting momma. 


This time I colored the turtle with pinks and grays. I found this sweet background paper and the paper I used for the butterflies and my topper in my scrap drawer; so I am not sure which collection(s) they are from. I love the the Shell-ebrating You sentiment on the card. It is one of the many awesome sentiments that comes with the Turtley Rad stamp set. 


I also used Card Mat Dies, Spring Dies 2 (my first time using these and can I just say LOVE!), Border Dies, Mini Tag Dies 2, Scallop Slider and Topper Die, Super Hero, and Super Hero 2 for this project. 



Regular Price for the Release Package is $137.99

Birthday in Style! Jaded Blossom May Release Day 5!

It's time for the  Jaded Blossom May Release Sneak Peek Day 5!

Today the Jaded Blossom DT is showcasing projects using the new Social Candies and this month's freebie - Birthday in Style.

I used Birthday in Style to make this fun gift set.


I also used the new Envelope Dies and the Stitched Circle Dies. The largest of the new Envelope Dies holds a 3x3 card, so I made my card to fit. The handled bag comes from SVG Cutting Files. I used the Dino Bag. And the rosette is from My Scrap Chick. The blue birthday paper is from Doodlebug Design's Hip Hip Hooray collection. This set was super easy to put together and will make it easy to package a small gift or tuck some candies and a gift card into.


Here is a photo of today's new stamp set:

Dude - Happy Birthday! Jaded Blossom May Release Day 4

It's time for the  Jaded Blossom May Release Sneak Peek Day 4! I think today's stamp set is one of my all time favorites - maybe even my absolute favorite. But that's because I like turtles!!! And I know that you will like the cute little turtle and the fun sentiments on this set too!

Today the Jaded Blossom DT is showcasing projects using the new Turtley Rad stamp set.

I decided to ink up the turtle and to stamp directly to my back panel for a one layer clean and simple look! I also decided to continue layering on the greens to give it a monochromatic feel. I just love how it turned out!!! Using the smaller version of the turtle, I made some candies to match.


Other Jaded Blossom products used; Card Mat Dies, Funny Bunny, and Paint Splatters 2


Isn't this just the cutest!!! My son saw it and just loved it! He asked me to make a non birthday version for a friend of his at school who also really likes turtles. The patterned paper is from Doodlebug Design's new Anchor's Aweigh collection. I used Papertrey Ink's New Leaf cardstock for the base. Everything was stamped directly onto the background panel. When I stamped on the turtle though, it looked as if he was just floating around; so I used a stamp from Paint Splatters 2 to give him some dirt to walk through. So that my pile of dirt didn't get too large and my turtle didn't get splattered as well, I masked both the turtle and part of the stamp. 


I used Copic Markers to color the turtle. I don't have many markers, but luckily I have just the right colors to work for this guy. I am by no means proficient with my markers (not even close), but I am excited for the challenge of learning. I need to work on my blending technique for sure. And with cute JB images like this, I can't help but want to learn!!! I think that is the best part about crafting and other hobbies - always getting a chance to improve your skills and trying new techniques. 


Here is a photo of today's new stamp set:

Turtley Rad


Told you it was a cute set!!!

Remember this stamp set along with the rest of the release will be available for purchase starting Friday at 4 pm Pacific time. You can scroll down to the next 3 blog posts to see my projects from Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday if you'd like.

Then stop back by tomorrow for another sneak in the morning and for our Jaded Blossom Blog Hop starting at 4 pm Pacific time.

Today the Jaded Blossom DT is showcasing projects using the new Dog-gone Awesome and Puppy Dress Up stamp sets.

For my project, I used a sentiment and the paw print stamp from Dog-gone Awesome.


I also used the Scallop Caddy Die and Card Mat Dies.


I just think this stamp set is the cutest and I love the itty bitty paw print stamp. It is going to be so cute on so many puppy projects!!!

The Bonnet Puppy is from SVG Cutting Files. The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Blush collection. The cardstock for the caddy is Vintage Cream from Papertrey Ink.

Make a Splash! Jaded Blossom May Release Day 1!

It's May you all and Jaded Blossom has one fun release this month. Trust me when I say there is too much cuteness going on!!!

Today the Jaded Blossom DT is showcasing projects using the new Envelope Dies and the Mermaid Kisses stamp set. The largest die in the Envelope Dies will hold a 3x3 card which is the perfect size card to stick into a gift bag.

And talking about gift bags, I have a cute one to share with you today using a fun sentiment from Mermaid Kisses.



Along with the Mermaid Kisses sentiment, I also used the Jaded Blossom Mini Tag Dies 2 and Border Dies

The so very cute Mermaid file is from Treasure Box Designs.


The Larger Handled Box Bag is from SVG Cutting Files. (I made an alteration to the handle on the bag in my software before cutting it.) The paper I used for the bag comes from the Craft Smith Pacific Cove 12x12 paper stack.

And it wouldn't be complete without the 3x3 card, so I made this to go along with it.


I used the Jaded Blossom Stitched Square Dies for my card front. I stamped on the small image of the Mermaid from Mermaid Kisses and added some cut files from the Treasure Box Designs Mermaid file. I then die cut the largest of the new Envelope Dies for the card.

Here they are together!!!



Here are a couple of photos of today's new product sneaks:





Check out the mermaid stamped image on this set! Makes me want to keep practicing my coloring skills just so I can use her! She is just too cute!!!

Rainbow of Crackers! Jaded Blossom May Challenge!

It's time for the Jaded Blossom May Challenge over on the JB Blog!

Join the Jaded Blossom team this month with the new challenge theme -
Food

Who doesn't love some food, right!!!

Here is my project:


I made a LO using the Scallop Square Dies, Stitched Square Dies, Alphabet Dies and the Spring Signs 2 stamp set from Jaded Blossom and the Rainbow of Crackers SVG file from Treasure Box Designs. How sweet would this be with pictures of a sweet toddler eating his goldfish and drinking his juice.


I wanted the tag for this sentiment to resemble the spills a toddler will make, so I also used the Paint Splatters stamp set. 

I hope you will join Jaded Blossom's "Food" Challenge this month. I can't wait to see your projects!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
