Jaded Blossom: August Stamp Release BLOG HOP!

Hey Everyone! Welcome to Jaded Blossom's August Stamp Release Blog Hop.  

Now if you're here from
Cindy's Blog you're in the right place. If you're just passing through start at the beginning because you don't want to miss a thing.  I also have the complete line up at the bottom.

Today, I created this gift set which includes a card and a bag topper for this awesome I (heart) the 80s shirt with pink lightening bolt earrings! I LOVE every single thing from this 80s inspired release!
 
 
To make the card and bag topper, I rubbed distress oxide ink over paper and then created a light stencil background by dotting a wet paper towel over the 80s stencil. I also added water splatters. Next, I stamped the star/rainbow and the I (heart) the 80's over the colors using embossing ink and then heat embossed black embossing powder on top of the stamped images. I used the Scallop Rectangles Dies 1, Rectangle Dies 1, and Scallop Circle Dies for the card. To create the bag topper, I used the Slimline Dies.

 

 Regular Price for the Release Package is $117.99

 Free 4x6 stamp set for customers that spend over $40 before tax and shipping! FREEBIE is only available until Sunday 8/9, 11:59pm pst.

Jaded Blossom: AUGUST Sneak Peek Day 4: 80's ICONS FREEBIE

Happy Thursday everyone! We are on Day 4 of Sneak Peeks for the JUNE Release at Jaded Blossom. The "Gotta Have It All" package isn't available today, but it will make a come-back on Friday at 12am PST! 

Today, I'm showcasing the 4x6 FREEBIE set called 80's ICONS. It features mini versions of the images from the Kawaii 80s set along with cute faces you can add to your stamps! Soooooo CUTE!! This FREEBIE is shipped to all customers who spend $40 or more (before taxes and shipping) starting this Friday until Sunday, 11:59pm PST.
 
  
I'm all about inky backgrounds with this release because nothing says 80s like bright splashes of color! This time around I stuck to blue, purple and pink for this rollerskating card. When I was younger I used to be outside rollerskating all the time. It was my thang! And I could even do some tricks. Now....not so much, LOL! It hurts a lot more to fall now that I'm older.
 
 
 Remember, we will have a Blog Hop on Friday, and 1 lucky person will win a stamp set of his/her choice! It's definitely worth playing along. See you all tomorrow!

Hugs,
Rosie

I can't even begin to tell you about the level of excitement I have for the August Release because...I LOVE the 80s!! The neon colors, the leg warmers, the big hair, and most importantly...the MUSIC!! Today, we are showcasing:

Love the 80s 
  
 
My son LOVES Pop Rocks and I found these different flavored ones on Amazon. I created this gift box for them using the Scallop Caddy Die. I used Distress Oxide Inks to create the colorful background. Then I laid the 80s Stencil on top and used a wet paper towel over the stencil to create the light designs. Next, I stamped the "you make my heart go BOOM" in embossing ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder.
 
 
I recreated the colors on a 2nd sheet of paper and stamped the image again and heat embossed it so I could cut out the boom box and put it on an action wobble. The boom box shakes!

My project is a gift set with a card and LEGWARMERS! I totally forgot how much I love legwarmers and then I saw them on Amazon...CRAZY right?!! So of course I got me some bright pink ones. I'm thinking I need a rainbow pair too, LOL!
 
 
I used gold embossing powder to create the outline of the Rainbow Doodle image and Be Happy sentiment on watercolor paper. Then I used a paintbrush and Zig Clean Color Markers to color in the details. For the tag, I cut out the tag shape using the Treat Tag Die. I added splatters of ink onto the tag. Then I cut out the rainbow stripes from watercolor paper, colored the stripes in with the Zig Markers and a paintbrush and glued the rainbow onto the tag.

Jaded Blossom: AUGUST Sneak Peek Day 1: ALL ABOUT THE 80s!

Happy Monday everyone! We are on Day 1 of Sneak Peeks for the AUGUST Release at Jaded Blossom. Starting today you can purchase the entire Release as part of the "Gotta Have It All" Package for a discounted price (see details below). But HURRY, you only have until Wednesday to grab this awesome deal with the discount, which includes a 4x6 FREEBIE stamp.

 
I can't even begin to tell you about the level of excitement I have for the August Release because...I LOVE the 80s!! The neon colors, the leg warmers, and most importantly...the MUSIC!! Here are the 4 products the team is showcasing today:

Kawaii 80s, 80s Stencil, Glasses Dies, and Pump Up The Jam


I am soooooo in heaven right now! My project is a gift set with a card and coordinating light-up glasses. I found these blue light up glasses on Amazon. I will tell you that the battery pack unfortunately is wired to the glasses and is NOT detachable. The battery pack also makes a low humming noise when turned on so I can see that being a bit irritating. They are fun though and have 3 different light displays! I used 3 of the 4 products featured today: 
80s STENCIL, GLASSES DIES, and PUMP UP THE JAM

The background was created using Distress Oxide Inks. I spread the ink around first, then laid the stencil on top and used a wet paper towel to pick up the ink in the open areas of the stencil.


  
The best part of this gift set is that I used Glow-in-the-Dark Acrylic Paint on the glasses because the sentiment says, "Let's glow crazy, it's your Birthday!". So much FUN, right?!!

Jaded Blossom AUGUST Challenge: FRUIT

Happy Sunday everyone! Today starts a brand new monthly challenge at Jaded Blossom! The theme for AUGUST is:
 
FRUIT

Challenge Guidelines: 
1) Project must be new for this challenge, no back linking
2) Project must have a Jaded Blossom stamp somewhere on it. 
3) Only one entry per person
4) Link it up below by 09/05/2020 11:59 pm PST

Prize:
This month's prize for a randomly selected winner is:
 
I decided to try some more water-coloring. It's definitely not as easy as it looks. Trying to figure out how much water to load onto the brush is a learning process. But I persevered....barely, haha! I stamped the watermelon from the KAWAII FRUIT set onto watercolor paper using Ink on 3 Fadeout Ink. Then I used Carmine Red and Deep Green Zig Clean Color Watercolor Markers to color the watermelon. I wasn't really feeling it and then added the splatter....and then it didn't look so bad.

 
The sentiment is from GO BANANAS! I added some splatters to that too. The stitched black frame around the sentiment was created using Rectangle Dies 1. Do you see that cute scallop border? That's from Scallop Rectangle Dies 2.

 
We hope you come play along with us! For more inspiration head over to the Jaded Blossom Blog! And be sure to check out the Jaded Blossom Store for all your stamps and gift giving supplies. They have various Cutting Dies to make party favors along with Favor Bags and Boxes.

Hugs,
Rosie

The deadline to link up your card is August 1st at 11:59pm PST for a chance to win a FREE stamp set of your choice!

Those of you who follow me know I love gnomes and I love sugary coffee so this month's release has been one of my faves! Today I made a gift of instant coffee packets for a friend using Gnome Brewed. To create the holder, I used the Scallop Caddy Die.

 Copics:

Hair: N0, N2, N4, N6
Teal: BG32, BG34, BG72, BG75, BG78

Gold Sharpie Paint Marker

For the background, I stamped the smaller coffee cup from the Gnome Brewed Stamp Set onto watercolor paper with embossing ink, sprinkled on gold embossing powder and heat set it. Next, I used my Zig Watercolor Markers, water, and a paintbrush to color in the cups. To finish it off, I splattered the purple and mint ink all over the panel.


We hope you come play along with us! For more inspiration head over to the Jaded Blossom Blog! And be sure to check out the Jaded Blossom Store for all your stamps and gift giving supplies. They have various Cutting Dies to make party favors along with Favor Bags and Boxes.
