Happy Tuesday! Marcia from The Frolicking Fairy on the Jaded Blossom blog today sharing this fun treat topper using stamps from the new May release. I stamped the adorable butterfly and watercolored with Distress Markers. For the cloud background, I used the open clouds from the Cloud Stencil and inked with Picket Fence Distress Oxide ink then outlined in white gel pen to help them pop. I love the effect! After stamping the sentiment, I die cut the heart bug trail and assembled the topper. I carefully rolled the butterfly's wings a bit for dimension.
I stamped, colored, and cut out the spider images from Bug Me Anytime and Baby Bugs. I then added googly eyes to the spider - they just make everything more fun!
On my white card base, I adhered a 2 1/2 by 5 1/2 piece of polka dot patterned paper and a strip of purple glitter paper. I heat embossed the sentiment from Birthday Bug Tags using black ink and clear embossing powder.
I used foam dimensional adhesive to pop up the large spider and adhered the smaller spiders directly on the card base. To finish off the card, I added a few sequins around the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by, I'll have my last guest designer post in a couple days!

A kind viewer (Sheila) recommended I use a brad to swing the top layer as a card, which worked beautifully! Thank you for the suggestion. As always, I added a googly eye for good measure.

Happy Friday everyone! It's Rosemary here today sharing a summery, floral card featuring MERMAID KISSES. Remember, our current CHALLENGE this month is FLOWER POWER! You have until June 7th to play along with us!
I love the beach and usually pick somewhere tropical to go on vacation. Since vacation plans are on hold for a while due to everything going on, I decided to transport myself there with this card. I colored this gorgeous Mermaid using Copic Markers and then added Gold paint to certain areas.
To create the card, I cut two large stitched rectangles using the RECTANGLE DIES 2. On one rectangle, I used the following colors to create a sunset sky: Scattered Straw, Ripe Persimmon, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Chipped Sapphire.
On the 2nd rectangle, I used Broken China and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide ink to color half of it. Then I used one of the wave border dies from the TROPICAL DIES to cut it out. I also cut a second wave border from the white half of the rectangle. I splattered water over the blue distressed piece and adhered it on top of the white wave exposing the white border at the top. Next I placed the mermaid partially behind the wave with her hair toward the front. Both the wave and mermaid are raised on foam tape. To finish off the card, I added flowers and enamel dots.
Hello! Mel from Doxie Mel Designs with a new gift card idea for you today. I used the large single flower from Flower Cluster and stamped three of them to layer. The flowers are colored in orange tone Copic Markers. The flowers are decorating Jaded Blossom's Pocket Tag Die.
Here is a closer look at the flowers. The greens behind the flower are from Jaded Blossom's Flower Dies. The sweet little tag is stamped with a sentiment from Kind Thanks.
