Hello! Today is my post over at Stamp Anniething. I thought I would try something new to me... no line stamping. I stamped the image with Mocha Brown Memento ink and then stamped it off twice so the lines would be lighter. Next, I colored with Copic Markers. Her eyes were darkened with a dark brown colored pencil. I am certainly not a pro at this "no-line" stamping but I like the results. So look for more as I experiment. :)

Jaded Blossom's August 2016 Release Blog Hop :: Beets!

Hey Everyone! 
Now if you're here from GiGi you're in the right place, if you're just passing through start at the beginning because you don't want to miss a thing.  I also have the complete line up at the bottom.
Here is what I made:
Beet Treats! 
Say what you want about beets but these are filled with sweets!  My parents love beets but I am not a fan, unless they are filled with chocolate candy kisses. hehehe  I thought the sentiment for the NEW Foodie stamp set was so cute, I went on the hunt for some beet themed items. This cute treat holder is from Snapdragon Snippets but I picked my beet at the Silhouette Design Store, HERE.  

Here is a closer look. The bottom of the candies are decorated with the NEW Kawaii Candies 2. (shhhh.. I think that is a radish. Colored a reddish-purple, they make a sweet beet.)

Hello! Welcome to the first day of Jaded Blossom Sneak Peeks! Today we have the NEW Boarder Dies 2 and two new stamp sets, Kawaii Sentiments 2, and Kawaii Candies 2. Here is my project today. I used the NEW Boarder Dies 2 and Kawaii Sentiments 2 to make this topper. Pickled Popcorn? YES! It is dill-icious. My sister in law introduced me to this flavor at the Cone at Cars Land. :D

Here is a close up of the topper. I found the pickle at Cricut Design Space (Just Because Cards) and trimmed the large Candy Caddy Die with Border Dies 2. 


Here is a slider Card I made with another sentiment from Kawaii Sentiments 2. The slider card is from SVG Cutting Files, Carrot Slide Card.

Here is the sentiment stamped on the inside of the slider.

Stamp Annie Thing's August Release Day!

Hi and welcome to Day #3 of 
Stamp Anniething's August release!  

Let's do a sort of TIME warp dance with this release!
Rip Roarin' 20's fun Lucille!

Lucille is available in the store TODAY along with the complete August Release!!


Here is my card featuring Lucille. She is colored with Copic Markers and I used dies from Jaded Blossom to create the card base. The pattern paper is from Craft Smith. I LOVE their paper and it is such a "Hot Buy" at Micheals.. I can't help myself!  I thought the glittery paper was perfect for the party. (it is actually a paper that has a photograph of chunky glitter .. no chunks of glitter falling off this baby!) To add some more sparkle, I added a few sequins from Doodlebug Designs.

Stamp Anniething's August Sneak Peeks Day Two

Hi and welcome to Day #2 of 
Stamp Anniething's August release!  

Let's do a sort of TIME warp dance with this release!
Poodle skirt loving, 50's Jessica!

Jessica will be available in the store Friday along with the other 2 stamps we preview this week.


Here is my sample made with the new Jessica stamp. I sorta giggle when I see a poodle skirt. I had started a new job and saw this flyer for the company Halloween Party. I was so thrilled, I made myself a poodle skirt and even had vintage accessories from my mom to finish the 50s look. I went to work.. no one had a costume on! Whatever! 

Enough rambling.. Jessica is colored with Copic Markers to match the colors of my very own poodle skirt. ;) The card was created with dies from Jaded Blossom.
