Jaded Blossom: GINGERBREAD GNOMIES

 Happy Friday Gnomies! I'm back today sharing an adorable tag I created using Jaded Blossom stamps and dies. If you know me then you know I love gnomes, so I was thrilled to find this cute guy! Isn't he the best?!! I love that he's decked out in gingerbread colors. And how perfect is the GINGERBREAD GNOMIES Stamp Set for the coordinating tag?!



I used the Treat Tag Die to create the tag shape. Then I stamped the image on Copic Xpress It Blending Card and coloring the gnome with Copic Markers. 

COPICS:
Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, E13
Beard: N0, N2
Brown: E33, E23, E25, E27

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.

I Am Roses + Conie Fong Emily with Penguin

 Happy Tuesday friends! Today's card is for I Am Roses, and features their gorgeous flowers with an adorable Conie Fong digi called EMILY WITH PENGUIN.

I used some digital patterned paper from Etsy called Cute Penguin Christmas.  I love using digital paper because I can print the patterns any size I want and I never run out of my favorite designs. The ribbon is from my stash. And for quick sentiments I grab my Dymo Embossing Label Maker!

I added the bird to the snowman's hat and the squirrel to the top of the sentiment box all in Microsoft Word. Then I printed it out on Xpress It Blending Card and colored the image with Copic Markers. To finish the card, I added a strip of ribbon and a bow to one corner.

Jaded Blossom 10th Birthday Celebration Day 2: NEW STAMPS + SALE!

 Happy Friday my friends! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday! This week we are celebrating a very HAPPY 10TH BIRTHDAY TO JADED BLOSSOM STAMPS with a brand new release and an awesome SALE! 

For my project today, I created another mini card to go with these cute Hershey Kisses. I used the Pennant Topper Die to cut the patterned paper at the top of the card and wrapped some twine around the paper. For the image of the presents, I fussy cut just part of the stamp from the Clear Jar: Birthday Add Ons, and only used 3 of the presents.


I raised the presents on foam tape for extra dimension. The "wish big" sentiment is part of the Birthday Candies Stamp Set. To finish off the mini card, I added some enamel dots.

 
Here are all the Hershey Kisses lined up! Aren't they cute?!!

Jaded Blossom 10th Birthday Celebration: New Stamps and a SALE!

 Happy Wednesday my friends and a very HAPPY 10TH BIRTHDAY TO JADED BLOSSOM STAMPS! We are celebrating with a brand new release and an awesome SALE! 

For my project today, I used the XL Topper Die to create a handled topper for a pack of face masks. It's the perfect pampering gift for a friend! I also made a coordinating mini card to go with the gift using the Pennant Topper Die.


Do you see that pretty patterned paper? That is from the new Jaded Blossom Celebration 6x6 Paper Pad. Yes, you read that right! Jaded Blossom is now producing paper pads! I used the left over cut out pieces from the handle die to make the Thank You sentiment tag which I raised on foam tape for more dimension.


For the sentiment on the mini card, I combined the FREEBIE Thank You Die with the "Thank You" sentiment stamp from Friendly Candies Stamp Set.

TLC Designs November 2021 Digital Release + New Illustrator!

Happy Saturday everyone! I'm so excited to show you all the NEW digital products releasing in the TLC Designs Shop today! And for the cherry on top, there is also a new illustrator joining the TLC Designs family...Krista Smith [Krista Smith Stamps]! As you all know she is one of my favorite artists so I'm am beyond thrilled that she is now creating digis for TLC Designs.


The November 2021 Release includes the following:

Classic Santa Paper Pad (digital or physcial cardstock)
Peppermint Paper Pad (digital or physical cardstock)
Furniture Staples Digital Stamps
Snow Buddies Digital Stamps
Frosty Fairies Digital Stamps
Gnomeone Like You Digital Stamps (Krista Smith)


 I combined several of the digital products to create this Christmas scene card. I used the characters from Gnomeone Like You and accessories from Furniture Staples along with paper from the Classic Santa Digital Paper Pack.
 

To create the scallop slimline home scene, I used the largest die from the Zinnia Slimline Die. I cut 3 slimline shapes....one from the green patterned paper in the Classic Santa Paper Pack, one from white cardstock, and one from tan cardstock. I cut the thin white strip from the white cardstock die-cut to create the baseboard. I hand drew the lines on the tan cardstock die-cut for the wood floor and colored with Copics. Then I fussy cut out the characters and furniture, colored them with Copics and adhered them to create the scene. The boy is raised on foam tape.


We hope you enjoy this new release! I also encourage you to come join in all the FUN on the TLC Designs Creative Sharing Facebook Group and share your fabulous projects with us! We would love to Ooooh and Aaaah over your creations!

Have a great weekend!
