Another Birthday Card!


Sharing another Birthday Card today using more Doodlebug Design paper 
and dies and stamps from Jaded Blossom.

Loving crafting with orange lately. It has never really been my color, but lately I keep going back to it. I have another project coming up in several days that uses an orange/blue combination.


I used the Card Mat Dies, Star Dies, Border Dies 2, and Party Pants stamp set from Jaded Blossom. The paper is from the Doodlebug Hip Hip Hooray collection. Making birthday cards for guys can be a bit hard sometimes, but I really like how both of them I have made this week have turned out.

Have a great Saturday! My boys are coming home from camp later today. 
I am super excited to see them!!!

Blessings,

Birthday Time!

We are always needing Birthday Cards, right!!!

My oldest is 13 today! I have my 1st official teenager, oh my!!! And he is off at camp, so I don't even get to see him today. Makes me sad!!! He is a fantastic kiddo and blesses mine and my husband's life immensely!!! Love that boy and can't wait to celebrate with him this Sunday! I'll be making him and my husband both a nice dinner to celebrate since my boys missed Father's Day as well. Then next month we will have a big shindig to celebrate this special milestone!


I started with some great papers from Doodlebug Design and dies and stamps from Jaded Blossom. I cut both papers using Rectangle Dies 1 and then cut the blue birthday paper with the balloon border die from Border Dies 2. I used the Happy Hello stamp set to add my sentiment. I then used foam squares to attach the blue birthday paper at the bottom and then taped it all to a card base. I like the dimension at the bottom of this one.

Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings,

Zombie Virus!

I know you all are thinking sunshine and rainbows and flip flops with all that heat outdoors, but sometimes I just have to craft something I love and for me that is something for Halloween. And besides, next month everyone is going to be bombarding us with Christmas in July, right!!!

So today, I dug the Poison Bottle out of the Halloween section of the SVG Cutting Files Store to post here and on the SVG Cutting Files Blog.


I turned the Poison Bottle into a shaped card using the weld function in Silhouette Studio software. My husband is a huge Walking Dead fan, so this will make a great card for him. 

I decided to decorate the bottle with the new Label Shape Dies from Jaded Blossom and used sentiments from Pick Your Poison and Spooky Labels.

And now that I think of it, Halloween is only 4 months away, so maybe I'll be hanging out in the Halloween section of the store a lot more between now and then! Bwahahaha!

Thanks for stopping by today! See you soon!

Blessings,

Just Popping Out to Say Happy Birthday!

Well hopefully by now some of you have gotten those new dies from Jaded Blossom in the mail from last week's new release. I have another idea for them that I am sharing here and over on the Jaded Blossom Blog today!


I used the Envelope Dies to make the cute 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" envelope and only folded and attached it with double sided tape on three sides. I also cut a label from the new Label Shape Dies and stamped the top half of my sentiment and the small turtle from Turtley Rad. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from So Many Birthdays 3. The turtle is colored with Copics. Once finished, I attached it to the front with foam squares. I then cut a banner from the Banner Dies and attached the banner at the top with foam squares as well. I used the Scallop Square Dies to cut a square that is about 3" to write a note on and tucked it and a gift card inside. The patterned paper is from Doodlebug Design.

Here is a look at the new Label Shape Dies:


Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Have a great Tuesday!

Trading Cards! Jaded Blossom June Release Day 5!

One last stamp set to share today for Day 5 of the Jaded Blossom June Release.

Today we are sharing Trading Cards and it is this month's freebie!


I decided to use it to make these sweet little gift bags! I used the Goody Bag Die for the bag and then I though it would be fun to show the versatility of this idea with 3 different sentiments.

The You're Invited sentiment from Invitations Galore would make a fun way to invite friends to a party. Why not give them that bag of candy to get them excited about the party! Hehehe!!!


The Thank You sentiment from the Fired Up stamp set is the perfect way to say thank you to everyone who showed up at your party.


And the Happy Birthday sentiment from So Many Birthdays 3 makes this bag perfect to take along with you if you are headed to a birthday party.


I stamped and embossed all 3 of these and though it is easier to see the copper embossing powder in the photo, I really like the softer look of the white embossing powder. The paper is from Authentique's Sweetness collection.

Here is today's reveal:

Trading Cards (June Freebie)

You Set My Heart on Fire! Jaded Blossom June Release Day 3!

I am so STINKIN' EXCITED to share today's reveal with you from the Jaded Blossom June Release!!! We are sharing Dragon Kisses - and I just LOVE this sweet little dragon!!!

You'll have to head over to the Jaded Blossom Blog to see all the colors the Design Team has colored this little cutie, but I colored the little sweetie in pink!

I think I am going to name this little guy JB Dragon! Hehe!


I want to show you some close-ups so you can get a better look at the backgrounds.


The card used the Card Mat Dies, Paint Splatters 2, and Amaze-Me. Love all the details and still it is only a one layer card. To add the Paint Splatters stamp around the dragon, I used the free SVG file for the dragon that you can get from the Jaded Blossom website. I cut it out and laid it over my colored image and then stamped around it. 


I used the Luggage Tag Die for my tag. I again used the Paint Splatters stamp around my dragon. The paper for the back layer is Doodlebug Design and I also added some Doodlebug Sprinkles to the front. I tied it to my gift with some pink crinkle ribbon.

I used Copic Markers to color JB - R81, R83, R85, and R20.

The new Dragon Kisses will be available this Friday with the rest of the June Release, but if you can't wait ...

A Whole New World! Jaded Blossom June Release Day 2!

Hey Crafty Friends! It is Day 2 of the Jaded Blossom June Release Reveal!!!

We have two new stamp sets to show you - Diamond in the Rough and Happy Name Day! You can see both further down in the post.

I used Diamond in the Rough for both of my projects today.

The genie on this stamp set is just adorable!


I decided to make a little suitcase to fill with candies. To decorate it, I stamped the genie, the genie's lamp, and the sentiment on one of the new Label Shape Dies that we revealed yesterday. I used my Prismacolor Pencils to color the genie and lamp. The candies were made using the Candy Charms and Banner Dies. The box is the No Glue Suitcase from Lori Whitlock that I picked up in the Silhouette store and the patterned paper is from Doodlebug Design.


This one is for all you guy crafters out there! This would make a beautiful card for a groom to give to the bride on a wedding day or to give to your wife on an anniversary. The wedding dress is from the Wedding Wishes stamp set and the sentiment is from Diamond in the Rough. The card base is from SVG Cuts.

The Jaded Blossom June Release will be available on Friday, but if you can't wait ...

Birthday Fit for a Warrior! Jaded Blossom June Release Day 1!

It's June Release Time at Jaded Blossom and it is too much fun! Definitely one of my favorites!!!

Today we are sharing two new stamp sets - I Vike You and Shield Maiden - and a new set of dies - the Label Shape Dies.

I have made a birthday card and tag set using I Vike You and Label Shape Dies.


I used a new svg file from SVG Cutting Files called Castle Door Card (It will be in the store this week). I added my valiant viking warrior to the front and then added the label with my embossed sentiment. For the tag, I embossed the viking helmet to a die cut from Candy Charms and Banners and embossed a Happy Birthday sentiment from Turtley Rad onto a banner from Mini Tag Dies 2.


This card could also be an awesome birthday invitation just by changing the sentiment
on the banner to You're Invited from the Invitations Galore stamp set.


Finish off the inside with the time, date, place, and RSVP sentiments also from Invitations Galore.

The paper I used for the castle door is from My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline.

This month's release will be available this Friday at 4 pm PST; but if you can't wait...

Hello Sunshine!

The sun is shining and I am taking over the SVG Cutting Files Blog today!

The kids and I have been enjoying summer so far! Lots of swimming and baseball games and time with cousins! So much fun!!! So this is the perfect card to share with you today!


That's right - my family has been saying "Hello Sunshine!" The other day we went to a water park with several cousins and I think they all went around the lazy river the last 3 hours straight that we were there. They just went in circle after circle and talked non stop. They had so much fun!!! I hope you and your family are getting plenty of time in the sun too!

For my card, I have used the new Chibi Boy Pool Noodle file from SVG Cutting Files. This cutie will be available this Friday in the store. I also used Card Sketch 53 which you can find here.

The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Rain or Shine stamp set.

I used a combination of Echo Park, Doodlebug, and Papertrey Ink papers.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Blessings,
