Jaded Blossom: JULY Release Sneak Peek Day 2

Happy Tuesday everyone! We are on Day2 of Sneak Peeks for the JULY Release at Jaded Blossom. If you are loving this entire release like me, 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 at the lower price, which includes a 3x4 FREEBIE stamp!

Today, I'm back with more coffee goodness and showcasing the following:

 
Additional Products:

I decided to create my own tall box using the slimline die as the base template so it would be tall and wide enough to hold a Torani Syrup bottle. I used the tall rectangle to trace the shape, but extended the length to 11 inches so I had a bottom to the box (score at 8 inches so you have a 3" wide bottom). The side panel to the box is 3" wide and 4" tall. I just traced it out and hand cut two templates. Once the box was glued together, I created the front cover to the box using the new Birthday Coffee Art Clear Stamps. You will need the Coffee Art Clear Stamps if you want the coffee mug/spoon stamp.

Jaded Blossom: JULY Release Sneak Peek Day 1

Happy Monday everyone! We are on Day 1 of Sneak Peeks for the JULY 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, which includes a 3x4 FREEBIE stamp.

 Y'all know I love me some coffee (all the cream and sweetener, please), and Gnomes! So, you know this girl was totally excited to see them both combined into one AWESOME Release!! Today, I'm previewing these 4 products:


I am soooooo in heaven right now with these new products! So, I used all 4 items on my slimline card! When I saw the owl and the gnome I knew immediately I wanted to create a tree home for them both. The wood paper is a digital file I found on Etsy. I used the accessory dies included with the Slimline Dies Set to create the hole for the owl and the door for the gnome. Did you spot where I used the Coffee Bean Stencil? If you said on the coffee mug and on the door, you are correct! To create the grassy area I used the grass die from an older JB die set called Mushroom Dies.

 
I colored the owl on the coffee mug and the gnome with Copic Markers.

Copics:
Dark Brown: E44, E47, E49
Light Brown: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44
Mug: BG10, BG32, BG72, BG75, BG78

Copics:
Skin: E11, E13, E15, E37
Hair: N0, N2, N4
Red: R24, R27, R29, R57, R59
Coffee Beans: E43, E44, E77, E79
Blue: B37, B39, B99
Teal: BG10, BG32, BG72, BG78, BG78
White: C1, C3, Colorless Blender

Jaded Blossom JULY Challenge: RED, WHITE & BLUE

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

RED, WHITE, and BLUE

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 08/01/2020 11:59 pm PST

Prize:
This month's prize for a randomly selected winner is:

The unicorn is from one of my fave stamp sets called UNICORNS and GLITTER. I love this adorable unicorn! I went with a different color scheme as you can see. Who says Unicorns have to be white or pink? I decided to go with a light brown and a red, white, and blue mane.  

Copics:
Brown: E11, E13, E15, E37, E18
Red: R22, R29, R59
Gray: N0, N2, N4
Blue: B91, B37, B99
Black: C5, C6, C8, Black
Horn: Silver Glitter Pen

Then I figured I needed a patriotic rainbow so I used the KAWAII WEATHER Stamp Set. I stamped the rainbow in a light tan ink so I could do no-line coloring since I needed wider bands for the blue and red areas. The rectangles were created using Rectangle Dies 1 and Scallop Rectangle Dies 1. I created the cloud border using a die from the Borders 2 Die Set. The sentiment is from Doodlebug Design Land That I Love 6x6 Paper Pad, and the stars can be purchased HERE.  

Patriotic Rainbow Colors:
Blue: B37, B39, B99
White: N0, N2, N4, Colorless Blender
Red: R24, R27, R29, R57, R59
Clouds: C3, C1, C0, Colorless Blender

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

I Am Roses + Conie Fong: Moonflower Lullaby

I used paper from Doodlebug Design Love Notes 6x6 Paper Pad, and finished off the card with gorgeous flowers from I Am Roses. The R43 Roses are my fave and I use them frequently as the bigger flower on my cards. Next, I used yellow cherry blossoms, followed by white small flowers. I also love all the floral sprays they carry to place above the ribbon bow.  
 
 
Remember, you have until JULY 8th to link up your project to the current I Am Roses Challenge. Be sure to use a minimum of 3 I Am Roses products on your card to qualify for a prize. I can't wait to see what you make!

Y'all know I love gnomes so I'm going to be showcasing several of the gnome sets at Polka Dot Orchard over the next few weeks. This guy is from the CAROLING GNOMES set. I know, I know.....those are Christmas gnomes, but that doesn't mean you can't use them for other occasions! I used a Christmas gnome set a few posts down for a Red, White, and Blue card. It's always nice to get several uses from the same set.

Conie Fong: KISSED BY AN ANGEL

Happy Monday everyone! My 21-year Anniversary is coming up on July 3rd so I created a card for the hubby representing me and him. We've been together a total of 26 years and he and our son are the best things in my life! He loves me unconditionally and supports me in everything I do. I LOVE you bunches honey, and I will love you all my life!

The great thing about about making your own cards is that you can customize the image to more accurately resemble you! With this image from Conie Fong called KISSED BY AN ANGEL, I gave the boy a darker skin tone and a small afro. It's how my hubby looked when he was younger...and had hair, haha!

Girl Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, E13, E04
Girl Hair: E42, E47, E49

Green: YG23, YG25, YG67, G28
Blue: B93, B95, B97, B99
Tree Branch: E44, E47, E77, E79 

The cute heart paper is from Doodlebug Design LOVE NOTES 6x6 Paper Pad. If you haven't noticed they are my favorite paper company! The sentiment is from The Greeting Farm's Make A Wish Stamp Set. The Stitched Oval Frame is from My Favorite Things. 


If you create some cards using Conie Fong stamps, please stop by the Conie Fong Art and Design Facebook Page to enter the challenges. There are always two a month....one coloring challenge and one card challenge.

Today, Im featuring ELLA SWISSIE. Isn't she beautiful?! This set just might be one of my faves from the June Release. I stamped her on Xpress-It Blending Card and colored her skin and hair with Copics. The rest was paper-pieced and Star Dust Stickles added for extra sparkle.

Copics:
Skin: E11, E13, E15, E37, E18
Hair: E44, E47, E49, Black 
 
This adorable paper used at the top of the card and the paper for her dress are digital paper files from Etsy located HERE and HERE. The sentiment is from an older C.C. Designs Stamp Set called FABULOUS SENTIMENTS.

Jaded Blossom: Live in the Sun, Surf in the Sea

Happy Friday everyone! Have you checked out this month's monthly challenge at Jaded Blossom? The theme for June is: SUMMER!
You still have time to play along with us! The deadline to link up your summer card is July 4th at 11:59pm PST for a chance to win a FREE stamp set of your choice!
 
My son LOVES Pixie Sticks and summer so I combined his two loves for this project. I used the Scallop Caddy Die to create a holder for his pixie sticks! 
 
 
To create the clouds, I cut a piece of cardstock using one of the cloud dies from the Border Dies 2 Set to create a template. Since this has a stitched border, I added a thin layer of glue on the back of the die cut over the stitched holes and then let it dry. If you don't do this, when you go to rub ink over the paper die-cut it will seep through the holes and leave a blue stitched border.
 

 
 
Next, I cut out waves using one of the dies from the Tropical Dies Set. If you have this set, you probably noticed the original wave die has the waves facing the opposite direction, but I needed the waves to face to the left since my cute grasshopper faced that way. When I ran the paper and die through the cutter, I used a clean cutting plate so I didn't have any marks on the backside of the die. This allowed me to flip it and use the backside without having a bunch of marks/indentions.
 
After I cut the waves, I used the Scallop Caddy Die cover plate to cut out the wave panels so they were slightly slanted. Then I applied Distress Oxide ink (Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, and Chipped Sapphire) over the wave panels and splattered water on top. I also cut out white waves to layer behind the blue panels. The waves were adhered using foam tape for extra dimension. The awesome surfboard and sentiment are from the SURF'S UP Stamp Set. The cute, happy, and adorable grasshopper is from the Baby Bugs Stamp Set (the Freebie set from May).
 
 Copics:
SURFBOARD:
Teal: BG10, BG32, BG13, BG15
Orange: YR04, YR07, YR0
GRASSHOPPER:
YG23, YG25, YG67, G28
Wings/Belly: YG21, YG03
Tongue: E04 
 
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,
