Jaded Blossom May 2022 Release: SNEAK PEEK DAY 2

Happy Tuesday Friends! Today we are on Day 2 of Sneak Peeks for the Jaded Blossom May 2022 Release. This release has a patriotic theme and once again I'm so excited about all of these stamps and dies! Be sure to check out the "Gotta Have It Now" package for the BEST deal.

On the Jaded Blossom Blog, we are showcasing the Kawaii Patriotic Stamp Set + Outline Dies. I wanted to create some items that would be great for a 4th of July party so today I'm showing off this patriotic solo cup idea for easy entertaining. The cup includes a napkin, straw, spoon, fork, two water flavoring packets, and a twizzler. This idea is so versatile and you could include all sorts of things. These would make great party favors by filling with candy, light-up bracelets, jewelry, and even fireworks including sparklers and poppers.


I created a wrap from red gingham paper to go around the cup. Then I used the Label Shape Dies 1 for the panel on the front of the cup. The sentiment on the little straw flag along with the sentiment at the bottom of the stamped images are from the new God Bless America Stamp Set (showcased yesterday). 
 

 I stamped the Kawaii Patriotic images onto Copic Xpress It Blending Card and used the Kawaii Patriotic Outline Dies to cut them out.

Red: R24, R27, R37, R39
Blue: B12, B14, B16, B18

The Greeting Farm May Stamp Feature Day 2: HAPPY BIRTHDAY

 Happy Tuesday everyone! We are on Day 2 of Stamp Features for the MAY 2022 RELEASE at The Greeting Farm. This month, TGF introduced 3 new stamp sets which are all available now for purchase. Claudette, Joni and I are on The Greeting Farm Blog showcasing the new release. Don't forget about the TGF Blog Hop where 1 lucky person will take home all 3 stamp sets!

Sometimes you just need an awesome birthday sentiment set to take center stage on your card....or you need to create a male card without a cute character....or you need to produce several birthday cards quickly. If you can relate, then this next set called HAPPY BIRTHDAY needs to be a part of your stamp collection. The words Happy Birthday are large enough to be the focal point and the additional sentiments allow you to customize the card to your recipient.


For both cards, I used pre-printed card bases. The first card has rose gold foil on the roses and on the white frame border. I heat embossed the words Happy Birthday with rose gold embossing powder. I cut the card front apart so I could mat the card panel onto rose gold foil paper. Then I added it to a white card base.


Since the 2nd card was going to be for a man, I stamped the sentiment in black ink on a blue watercolor background. This stamp set also includes the dotted swirls and the dotted star so I added those around the stamped words.


Be sure to head over to The Greeting Farm Store and grab your favorites. You're going to LOVE them all! And please join The Greeting Farm Fan Page to share you creations. We would love to see them! See you back here tomorrow for Day 3.

Hugs,
Rosie

Happy Monday Friends! Today we are on Day 1 of Sneak Peeks for the Jaded Blossom May 2022 Release. This release has a patriotic theme and once again I'm so excited about the next add-on to the gnome dies! Be sure to check out the "Gotta Have It Now" package for the BEST deal.

On the Jaded Blossom Blog, we are showcasing Gnome Dies: Patriotic Add Ons, and God Bless America Stamps + Outline Dies. Once again, I moved the hat up and created a face for this little guy. I also used the large star from this set and added it over the decorative paper border on foam tape.
 

I used decorative paper from Doodlebug Design Patriotic Parade 6x6 Paper Pad. I cut the scallop border using Border Dies 2. The sentiment is from God Bless America Stamps and the little stars are from the God Bless America Outline Dies.

TLC Designs: MIX & MATCH HOP on Instagram!

Happy Sunday friends! Today, my card is for TLC Designs, and follows the rules for the Mix and Match Hop. My DT Sisters have an Instagram Hop going on right now. Head over to the TLC Designs Instagram Page for all the details and Hop list. I've also included some information below.

For this month, the Design Team was challenged to combine the newly released stamps from last month with products previously released so you can see how the products can be mixed together.

For my card today, I used the Hop-A Roos Stamp Set and combined it with the leaves and sentiment from Festive Friends Digital Stamp Set. To create the clouds I used the Happy Bloom Day & Clouds Stencil, and for the grassy knoll I used the Splash of Hearts & Land Stencil


Aren't these kangaroos so much fun?!! I raised the kangaroos on foam tape for some added dimension. The black scallop mat behind my card base was created using the largest die from the Rosie Sentiment Die Set.


Here are some of the details on the Mix and Match Hop:

Welcome to TLC Designs May 2022 Mix and Match Hop on Instagram!!  The team is excited to show how well ALL the products from @tlcdesignsshop mix and match together for endless creative options.  From unique and creative dies, to beautiful stamps and stencils —TLC Designs has it ALL!

Jaded Blossom: GNOME WORRIES, BEE HAPPY!

 Happy Friday friends! I'm back today for Jaded Blossom sharing a home decor piece I created. Tier trays are all the rave and it's so much cheaper to make your own little shadow box frames and signs using stamps and dies you already own. These little wood frames make awesome gifts for friends and family too! 


I used digital paper for the honeycomb background. The stamp is from the GNOME WORRIES BEE HAPPY Stamp Set. I stamped it directly on the paper and used a black marker to color in the words GNOME and BEE and the stripes on the little bees. Then I stamped the gnomes 3 times and colored them, fussy cut them out, and added them with foam tape for extra dimension. 


I found these cute chocolates I think at Target (I can't remember now) and they were perfect for this project. I did find some cute little bee embellishments to glue inside at the bottom of this shadow box frame, but they didn't arrive in time so I'll have to add them later. 

 
Remember, Jaded Blossom has a current ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE. You have until JUNE 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. 

Hugs,

Check out how adorable this guy is! I added a little bit of a face and curled his mustache. He kind of reminds of the chef from The Muppets, haha!


I used the Scallop Caddy Die to create the box. The gnome was created using the Gnome Dies, Gnome Dies: School Add Ons, and the Gnome Dies: Number Add Ons. The sentiment is from the Happy Graduation Stamp Set.

I Am Roses + Conie Fong's Daisy Carrot Bunny Bouquet

 Happy Saturday friends! Today's card is for I Am Roses, and features their gorgeous flowers with this adorable Conie Fong bunny that is part of the Daisy Carrot Bunny Bouquet Bundle. Isn't she the sweetest bunny ever?!! 

COPICS:
Gray: N0, N2, N4
White: C0, C1
Pink: R00, R30, R20
Green: YG23, G24, YG67
Daisies: Y11, YR23, R00, R81

The sentiment on the card is included in the bundle. I printed the bunny at 2" so she would fit in the bottom corner. That is one of the things I love about digis....you can print them any size. If  you go to this BLOG POST you will see that I printed one of the bunnies large enough to fit an entire card. This time, I printed the bunny smaller. 
 
 
I used light pink
R43 flowers for the large flower, and then added white cherry blossoms, pink roses, and two-tone pink/green leaves. To finish off the card, I added pearls to the opposite corners.


Remember, you have until May 8th to link up your project to our current ANYTHING GOES Challenge. Be sure to use a minimum of 3 I Am Roses products on your card to qualify for a prize. In case you didn't see the announcement, going forward there will be 5 random winners selected who will receive a $30 Gift Voucher. I can't wait to see what you make! 
 
Hugs,
Rosie

Jaded Blossom: MINI SCHOOL RELEASE Day 2!

 Happy Friday friends! We have a Mini School Release at Jaded Blossom...just in time for all those upcoming graduations and year-end teacher appreciation gifts! This year my niece is graduating from high school. I feel like she should still be 12 years old, LOL! In honor of her upcoming special day, I used the new products to create this graduation card.


These Gnome Die Add Ons bring a huge smile to my face! I'm loving each one that comes out!! I used the previously released Girl Gnome Dies to create the girl. I colored in the hat portion of the body die-cut so I could give her a face and glued the graduation hat higher up. The large hair bows came from the Gnome Dies: Easter Add Ons.
