Thinking of You!

Using some of my favorite dies from Jaded Blossom on my card today.

I love the butterfly dies in the Spring Dies 2 set! So I paired them with the Rectangles Dies 1 and a sentiment from Simple Sayings to make this card.

The background paper is from Authentique's Seasons: Summer 6x6 paper pad. This is a beautiful set of papers. And this card would work with lots of different sentiments.

Thank you for stopping in and taking a look! 

Don't forget to share your Jaded Blossom creations with us in the Garden of Creativity

And now for my projects!

Sharing two projects with you today. First a Layout for my home state of Missouri and then a card to send back to some friends in Ohio.

I love the new Rectangle Dies (1) and Scallop Rectangle Dies (1) that came out earlier this month from Jaded Blossom! So I decided to pair them with a sentiment from the new 50 States Add On set and the Spring Dies 2 to make this fun LO using the Missouri file from SVG Cutting Files. I wanted to use some bright colors for this so I dug out some papers from Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic collection. And then the background paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle.

Here is a close up of my stamped sentiment:

And as many of you have heard me mention; I have just recently moved back home to Missouri from Ohio, so I decided to make a card to send to some friends back there. 


I decided to take the Ohio file from SVG Cutting Files and make it into a shaped card. To finish it off, I used sentiments from 50 States, 50 States Add On, and Sweet Travels. Sweet Travels coordinates wonderfully with the two new sets!!! And I just love this Cardinal on this card which happens to be the state bird of Ohio. This guy looks like he is ready to play football for O-H-I-O State! LOL!!! I used some paper from Authentique for the background.

Hope you enjoy both projects and so excited that you are hopping along with us!

Next up is Cindy!

Mermaid to be Friends!

Happy Tuesday! 

I hope you enjoyed your 4th of July holiday. I had a great time celebrating with my brother and his family! How many of you like to go and watch the big firework shows and who likes to just stay home? I love the fireworks, but I can't always get my hubby to go.

It is my day to share a project for Jaded Blossom. Today I have a sweet card for you using the new Scallop Rectangle Dies 2 and Rectangle Dies 1 and 2. I have also used Mermaid Kisses.

Now, I want you to know that you can use stamped images even if you don't have fancy markers. I have some EK Success and some Martha Stewart colored pencils and I used those to color the image. And, of course, these pencils don't allow all the fancy blending; but my dear friend who I am going to mail this card to will not mind a bit!!! I'm sure she will just be super excited that I have thought of her. The background paper is from Doodlebug Design.

So glad you stopped by my creative corner today! I hope you have enjoyed the card!

Here's what I created:

My first project is in anticipation of July 4th in just a few days. I love the firework shows!!! So I decided to make some fun treat bags for my kiddos that I can give to them on the holiday. The new rectangle dies make creating a topper so easy!!! I used the Scalloped Rectangle Dies 2 for this one. I also used the Rectangle Dies 2 and Superstar stamp set for my sentiment and the Star Dies for the dark blue stars on the fireworks. The fireworks are from Miss Kate Cuttables and the fun paper is from Doodlebug Design.

Here is a close-up of the topper:

And since July is known to the crafting world as Christmas in July, my 2nd project is a Halloween card. Yes, that's right, I said Halloween. You see, I just couldn't make anything Christmas themed without making something Halloween themed first!!! Does anyone else feel this way?!! LOL!

I love Halloween and some of my favorite JB Dies are the Halloween Dies! This little ghost just makes my heart melt!!!And look at all the fun layers that can be made with the new dies!!! It just looks awesome! To make the card, I used the new Scallop Rectangle Dies 1, new Rectangle Dies 1 and Rectangle Dies 2, Stitched Oval Dies, Halloween Dies, Layered Frame and Journal Die, and Spooky Labels stamp set. The fun patterned papers are from Doodlebug Design, the face stamp is from Peachy Keen Stamps, and the cardstock is Papertrey Ink.

I'm so glad you stopped by today!!! I hope you are enjoying the hop. 

Up next is the fab Michelle!
