Blow Out the Candles

Time for another Tuesday share with Marcia of The Frolicking Fairy. As promised in my Live last month, I created a cute jar card/tag using the wee little puffer fish from I Puff You. I think he is just too darn cute swimming in his little jar home, don't you?

I watercolored the wee puffer the lightly inked up the jar and water panel with Distress Oxide inks. I spritzed the water panel with water for added interest and assembled the jar. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the jar using VersaFine black ink. To complete the jar tag/card, I adhered the tag with twine to the top of the jar, cut from silver shimmer cardstock, and added a foam dot beneath to hold the tag in place.

Until next time..

Live in the Sun, Surf in the Sea

Happy Friday everyone! Have you checked out this month's monthly challenge at Jaded Blossom? The theme for June is: SUMMER!
You still have time to play along with us! The deadline to link up your summer card is July 4th at 11:59pm PST for a chance to win a FREE stamp set of your choice!
My son LOVES Pixie Sticks and summer so I combined his two loves for this project. I used the Scallop Caddy Die to create a holder for his pixie sticks! 
To create the clouds, I cut a piece of cardstock using one of the cloud dies from the Border Dies 2 Set to create a template. Since this has a stitched border, I added a thin layer of glue on the back of the die cut over the stitched holes and then let it dry. If you don't do this, when you go to rub ink over the paper die-cut it will seep through the holes and leave a blue stitched border.

Next, I cut out waves using one of the dies from the Tropical Dies Set. If you have this set, you probably noticed the original wave die has the waves facing the opposite direction, but I needed the waves to face to the left since my cute grasshopper faced that way. When I ran the paper and die through the cutter, I used a clean cutting plate so I didn't have any marks on the backside of the die. This allowed me to flip it and use the backside without having a bunch of marks/indentions.
After I cut the waves, I used the Scallop Caddy Die cover plate to cut out the wave panels so they were slightly slanted. Then I applied Distress Oxide ink (Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, and Chipped Sapphire) over the wave panels and splattered water on top. I also cut out white waves to layer behind the blue panels. The waves were adhered using foam tape for extra dimension. The awesome surfboard and sentiment are from the SURF'S UP Stamp Set. The cute, happy, and adorable grasshopper is from the Baby Bugs Stamp Set (the Freebie set from May).
Teal: BG10, BG32, BG13, BG15
Orange: YR04, YR07, YR0
YG23, YG25, YG67, G28
Wings/Belly: YG21, YG03
Tongue: E04 
We hope you come play along with us! For more inspiration head over to the Jaded Blossom Blog! 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.

Cheers to Dad

Hello! Mel from Doxie Mel Designs with a new card idea for you. My Dad's birthday is this week so I went to my Jaded Blossom stash and put together a clean and simple card. My dad enjoys an adult beverage (and his gift is a case of beer too) so I though the stein from Kawaii Foods would make a fun card. The sentiment is from So Many Birthdays.

I love the shape of the newest die, Stylized Rectangle Dies. Here is a closer look at the stamp set.

Thanks for looking at my card today.

Sympathy Card Set

Happy Monday my crafty friends!!   Nicole here today to share some crafty inspiration.  
I have a couple of cards to share that I created using a fun new technique with stencils.

I cut out my base layer using the "Card Mat Dies".  I then used masking paper to tape off a 1.25" vertical section.  I inked the section up from lightest to darkest using distress oxide inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade.  Then I laid the "Random Hearts Stencil" down over top of that section and inked it up using distress oxide ink in Black Soot.

I used the "Spring Dies 2" for the butterfly and cut it out in coordinating cardstock to go with the inked area of my card.  I also added a smaller butterfly on the inside of the card.  The sentiment is from "Wishing You Comfort".  I finished off the card with some pearl Nuvo drops.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Be A Pineapple Card

Good morning!  Marcia here from The Frolicking Fairy.  Today I am sharing a card using the Jaded Blossom Monthly Spotlight stamp set Be A Pineapple, currently on sale for $10.99. I layered several purple flowers behind my sentiment label to complement all of the yellow. I just adore this sweet pineapple!

To color the pineapple, I scribbled my waterbased markers onto the stamp itself before stamping -- Pale Orange, Ochre, and Grass Karin Markers -- then used a damp brush to pull the color out and color the image. I stamped the face in VersaFine Onyx Black and added a wee bit of Rose Pink to her cheeks. A wee flower was added at the base of her "crown" and the card was assembled.
