Conie Fong: GOODNIGHT BENJI

Happy Saturday friends! Today, I'm sharing a card using one of Conie Fong's newest digital images called Goodnight Benji. I absolutely LOVE bears and the ones Conie creates are so sweet and adorable! The great thing about this image is that is can be used for both boy and girl cards.

COPICS:
Bear: E41, E42, E43, E44, Colorless Blender
Pink: RV02, R81, R83, R85
Purple: V12, V15, V17, BV08
Moon: C0, C1, C2, Colorless Blender

 I created the night sky for this image using Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide Ink, Nocturne Versafine Clair Ink, and a white gel pen on watercolor paper. My friend Jennifer Rustioni is an amazing colorist and also does these fabulous inky backgrounds for her images. I love the halo look she achieves so I gave it a try. I need to practice a little more on the twinkle stars, but overall I'm pleased with how it turned out.


 I did print the image on Xpress It Blending Card and fussy cut it out to glue to the sky panel because I like to color my images using Copic markers. One day I'll try watercoloring, but that's definitely going to take lots of practice, LOL!


I hope this inspires you to color up some of Conie's images. They really are a lot of fun! Be sure to join us in the Conie Fong Art and Design Group to share your creations. We would LOVE to support and encourage your crafting journey!

Hugs,
Rosie

Jaded Blossom: BEARY SWEET

 Happy Friday everyone! I'm back today with my latest project for Jaded Blossom. My amazing nephew, Tyler, started his first year of college at the University of Kansas so I'm putting together a care package for him. I wanted to make this bag of gummy bears special so I created a bag topper.


I used the bears from the Beary Sweet Stamp Set along with the Outline Dies. I stamped the outline of the bears in black. Next, I stamped the bear shadow using Versamark Embossing Ink and rubbed a darker chalk over the ink. This gave me a subtle shadow for each bear. I decided to put the sentiment from Love You Beary Much Stamp Set in the handle area so I could fit the bears along the bottom in a row.
 
 
I wanted my bag topper to coordinate with the Haribo Goldbears packaging so I used red and gold cardstock with the XL Topper Die. This die is one of my faves because it works perfectly with the snack bag size. 
 
 

Remember, Jaded Blossom has a current ANYTHING GOES Challenge. You have until February 4th to play along for a chance to win a free stamp set! 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.

Jaded Blossom January 2023 Release: SNEAK PEEK DAY 2

 Happy Monday Friends! We are on Day 2 of Sneak Peeks for the Jaded Blossom January 2023 Release. This month we are focusing on Valentine's Day and let me tell you....you are going to LOVE this release!! You can grab the "Gotta Have It Now Package" now for a discounted amount. If you wait until the release goes live the bundle price will go up.

 Today, we are showcasing the Beary Sweet and Love You Beary Much Stamp Sets. If there was ever a stamp set you needed in your collection, the Beary Sweet set is a must-have! It is so versatile! You can use inks to create bears in different colors or even stamp on patterned paper for any holiday or special occasion. I created 4 cards fairly quickly....2 Birthday cards, 1 Valentine's Day card, and 1 Encouragement card.


For the two birthday cards, I stamped the outline of the bear on patterned papers without the shadow stamp. I used the outline die to cut them out, and raised them on foam tape. To create the border at the top, I took the same paper and cut a scallop border using Border Dies 2.



I kept the next two cards clean and simple. For these two bears I stamped the outline and shadow part of the bear on patterned paper. I adhered the bears to an A2 card base using foam tape.

Jaded Blossom: STAY BREWTIFUL!

 Happy Friday everyone! I'm back today with my latest project for Jaded Blossom. I've been on a gold embossing kick lately, but this time I used it on white cardstock. There is just something so elegant about gold embossing powder. To create the flower pattern on the top cardstock panel I used one of the flowers in the Blossom Stamp Set. The scallop border was made using Border Dies 2. The floral coffee cup image and sentiment are from the Floral Coffee Art Stamp Set.


I love how this card turned out! Creating your own decorative paper is easy with Jaded Blossom stamps.

Remember, Jaded Blossom has a current ANYTHING GOES Challenge. You have until February 4th to play along for a chance to win a free stamp set! 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.
