For my project today, I created a holder and tag for these fabulous heart and stomach chocolates. I found a set of human organs silicone molds on Amazon HERE. You can also buy individual molds, but I knew I could use several of the organs in the set. Aren't they awesome?!!  
 
 
I melted white almond bark and tinted one batch pink. Then I filled the heart mold with pink chocolate, and the stomach mold with white chocolate. I let them set up in the fridge, popped them out carefully, and refilled again. If the chocolate in your bowls gets hard then just keep microwaving it until it's melted again. The holder was created using white cardstock, pink gingham paper, and pretzel bags.
 
 
To create the tag, I used the Treat Tag Die. I stamped the images from Kawaii Guts onto separate paper, colored them with Copic Markers, and fussy cut them out. I splattered pink ink on the white tag, stamped the sentiment from Trust Your Guts, and adhered the heart and stomach with foam tape for extra dimension.


I had so much fun playing with these products from this new release! I can't wait to show you everything that's coming all week long!

Hugs,
Rosie

 FREEBIE XOXO Stencil
Stencil is free with all orders $40 or more (before tax/shipping) starting Friday through Sunday! 

For my project today, I created a holder that slides over a Nerds candy box using the new products with the Scallop Rectangle Dies 1
 
 
To create the holder, I used the 2nd largest rectangle and cut two rectangles from the dark pink cardstock. Then I folded the sides over the edge. I trimmed off the edges of one of the rectangles so it was the perfect height on the sides. Then taped the sides of the other rectangle over the one I trimmed. It lined up perfectly!


Next, I trimmed some white cardstock to fit on top of the pink slider base. I used Picked Raspberry Distress Ink over the Arrows Stencil to create the background. Next, I stamped "hello love" from the Love You Lots Stamp Set at the top right corner. I stamped the gnomes on Xpress It Blending Card, colored them with Copics, and fussy cut them. I adhered them to the candy slider using foam tape. The second sentiment is from Gnome Kisses. I just cut it apart and used RV04 around the edges of the words.
 

I had so much fun playing with these products from this new release! I can't wait to show you everything that's coming all week long!

The Greeting Farm Stamp Feature: MISS ANYA FANNY PACK

Happy Monday everyone! We are on Day 1 of Stamp Features for the JANUARY 2021 RELEASE at The Greeting Farm. This month TGF introduced 3 new stamp sets and 1 stand alone cutting die! Claudette, Joni and I will be on The Greeting Farm Blog showcasing the new release over the next 4 days.

Today, I used these two amazing girls from the MISS ANYA FANNY PACK Stamp Set. My best friend from high school and I have been friends now for over 30 years. I seriously can't even believe it has been that long. For several years, we used to only live about 40 minutes from each other and would meet up almost weekly for lunch dates. In 2019, I moved back to Oklahoma and now I'm 4 hours away from her. It make me sad because this friend has always had my back, and she makes me laugh. I miss her tremendously! I'm also sad because her birthday is coming up and I won't be there to take her out. So this card is for you Letitia! Love you bunches my amazing bestie!


COPICS:
Girl 1 Skin: E11, E13, E15, E18
Girl 1 Hair: E42, E47, E49, Black
Girl 2 Skin: E000, E00, E01, E02, E11, E04
Blue Jean Dress: B93, B95, B97, B99
Pink: R81, R83, R85, R37

Brown Fanny Pack: E41, E42, E43, E44
White Fanny Pack: C0, C3, C5
Grass: G21, G24
Sky: Chalk, Cloud Stencil

 I created the background using a cloud stencil and chalk. When I use chalk I don't have to mask the images because 1. the chalk is lighter and 2. it can be erased if I accidentally get some on my image. To keep the focus on the scene, I just added a thin mat of black cardstock before adding to the white card base.

Jaded Blossom: Pinecone Die Christmas Card

 Happy Friday everyone! I hope the new year is going well for you! I know the holidays are over, but I had this card idea in my head for a few weeks and decided to give it a go. I saw a printable card online and wanted to see if I could recreate something similar using the Pinecone Die and Be Merry Stamp Set.

 
The first thing I did was cut out multiple pieces of the various shapes from white cardstock. Then I placed them on the black cardstock to figure out how things would fit. Once I settled on the design, I took a picture for reference.
 

 Next, I used my embossing buddy to add powder to the sentiment area to remove oils from my fingers. This keeps the embossing powder from sticking to areas around the sentiment. I figured out the placement of the sentiment and stamped it in the middle using Versamark Ink.


I left the unglued die-cut pieces on the edge of the black cardstock so I had a guideline of where to stamp the sentiment. After I stamped the sentiment, I carefully removed the die-cut pieces and then added white embossing powder to the sentiment and heat set it.
 

 Now, this is where your picture comes into play. You will want to reference it to add the die-cut pieces back on the edge of the black cardstock. Once you like the arrangement, glue the pieces down and trim off the edges. The final step is to adhere the black panel to the white card base. 
 
 
Remember, we have a monthly challenge on the Jaded Blossom Blog. This month the theme is COFFEE. We hope you play along with us for a chance to win a FREE Stamp Set! 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.

Rosie

Dies R Us: LAWN FAWN SELFIE FRAMES CARD

 Happy Tuesday everyone! Today, I'm on the Dies R Us Blog sharing a card I created using Lawn Fawn Dies and Stamps. I love the cuteness factor and versatility of their stamps and dies. They are usually my go-to company when I want to create something adorable.


 Let's get started!

 Step 1: I found some coordinating papers and cut my patterned paper to 4 x 5.5, the striped paper is 4.25 x 5.75, and the card base measures 4.5 x 6. Next, I cut two phone shapes from the Lawn Fawn Selfie Frames Die Set.


Step 2: I stamped the deer and bear from the Lawn Fawn For You, Deer Stamp Set on Copic Xpress It Blending Card. I drew in lines to extend their bodies. Then I colored them with Copic Markers (I put the jingle bells over parts of the image to deter image theft).


Step 3: I fussy cut out the deer and bear and glued them to some cloud paper. I outlined the phone die-cut with a gold marker, and then flipped it over and added foam tape to the back. Next, I placed the phone die-cut on top of the animal scene.


Step 4: I felt like the bear needed to be holding something so I decided to stamp the presents from the Lawn Fawn Toboggan Together Stamp Set and cut out the smaller present.


Step 5: I also decided to add some speech bubbles from the Selfie Frames Die Set. I just trimmed the speech bubbles smaller so they fit inside the phone die-cut.

I hope this inspires you to try your own Selfie Frame Card.



Don't forget to come join in the fun at the 
Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month, and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week!
