I cut this fun "adult beverage" using the SVG Cutting Files ~ Welcome to Margaritaville.  I cut the background using the Jaded Blossom ~ Card Mat Dies.  At the top, I used the brand new Jaded Blossom ~ Label Dies and that sentiment is from the brand new Jaded Blossom ~ Picture This 2.  In the lower left corner, I used the Jaded Blossom ~ Stitched Circle Dies.  At the bottom, I cut the strip using the Jaded Blossom ~ Border Dies and the sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom ~ Let's Toast.


For this I used the Jaded Blossom ~ Dainty Topper Die.  Then I used the Jaded Blossom ~ Label Dies and the sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom ~ So Many Birthdays.


For a simple something on this bottle, I used the Jaded Blossom ~ Mini Tag Dies 2.  And the sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom ~ Happy Hour Candies.

Jaded Blossom ~ August Challenge : Back to School

Hello everyone!  It's time for a brand new Jaded Blossom ~ Monthly Challenge.  And this month the theme is:  "Back to School".


I don't know about you, but when I was little - I was one of those kids who just LOVED back to school time!! As an adult, now I know it's just a little thing called OCD . . .lol.  ;)


For my projects today, I decided to make a card and a fun little backpack surprise.  Aren't they cute?!  I just love how they turned out.  The solid colors of cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.  And the fun patterned papers are from the Doodlebug Design ~ Back to School collection.


First up is the card.  I cut the background mat and the square center opening using the Jaded Blossom ~ Card Mat Dies.  Inside the opening, I added some super cute pencil stickers.  (But I left the plastic attached to the back of them, so the little kiddo can pull them out for his/her own use).  On the bottom left, I made a fun little ribbon using the Jaded Blossom ~ Scallop Circle Dies, the Jaded Blossom Stitched Circle Dies and the Jaded Blossom ~ Mini Tag Dies 2.  The sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom ~ Lunch Box Notes 2.


Next up is the surprise little backpack treat.  I made this using the Jaded Blossom ~ Lollipop Die.  I cut the square piece on the front using the Jaded Blossom ~ Card Mat Dies.  I cut the cutie patootie little apple using the SVG Cutting Files ~ Kawaii Nerd School.  The label is cut using the Jaded Blossom ~ Mini Tag Dies 2.  And the sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom ~ School Rocks.

Stamp Anniething ~ Ruff Day?

Hello everyone!  It's my day to post over at the Stamp Anniething Blog.  I thought I would do something a little different today and show you how to add a little texture to your Copic project.

Here's what you are going to need:


Now everything I'm about to show you, I learned from my Copic teacher - the fantabulous Jennifer Dove!! First, pick your Copic colors.  Then, you need some Copic Blending Solution.  And finally, you need a couple of textured material pieces.  For my project today, I have a piece of terry cloth and a piece of denim.


Color your image in the area you wish to texture.  Always do this first, because if you color the whole image and then texture - you may end up texturing areas that you don't want to.


Apply blending solution to your piece of fabric.  **Remember a little goes a long way.  Next, fluff up the fibers with your finger nails.


Then, gently apply pressure with the material on your colored image.  About 3 seconds usually does the trick. And then lift.  Continue as desired to the rest of the image.


This is what he looks like when finished.  Depending on how it turns out, it can look a little speckley (if that's a word lol) or it might even look a little like fur.


Next, I colored in the jeans of this little fella.  I could have just left it alone, but I decided to add even more texture so that they could look like real jeans.


Apply solution to the piece of denim.  Now this time, instead of bunching it up between your fingers - you are going to lay it flat down on the part of the image you wish to texture.  And you are going to apply pressure with the palm of your hand.  (Sorry I don't have a picture of that, but I couldn't do that and take a picture at the same time lol).


And voila!  Now he has on real jeans!!!  How cool is that?!?  Now, finish coloring your image and complete your final project.


This little fella is the Stamp Anniething ~ Dog Gone Cute.  I don't know about you, but if I was having a "ruff" day - he sure would make me smile!  (even though my husband thought he looked like a potato!!!  lol)  


The green card base is made with cardstock from Simon Says Stamp.  The yellow cardstock is from Papertrey Ink.  And the fun patterned paper is from the Simple Stories ~ Harvest Lane collection.  I cut the polka dot piece with the Jaded Blossom ~ Card Mat Dies.  The white piece is cut with the Jaded Blossom ~ Stitched Square Dies.  The label is cut with the Jaded Blossom ~ Mini Tag Dies 2.  And the sentiment is also from the Stamp Anniething ~ Dog Gone Cute.


Well my creative friends, that's it for me today.  I hope you enjoyed my fun little tutorial.  I will see you all again soon.  Have a great day everyone!
