Packer Cards

Hi everyone and happy Friday! Football season had begun...or at least pre-season so I decided to make up some fun Green Bay Packer cards!
The following pics are of both the front and insides of the cards.














These turned out so cute and I know lots of family and friends that would love to receive these! I'm even thinking of doing all my Christmas cards like these.
All the stamps and sentiments are from Peachy Keen's Colby and Jack Cheeseheads and Cheesy Packer Fans. I colored all the images with Copic markers. I kept the design's simple so as not to take away from those cute "cheeseheads" LOL! 

Here is the list of supplies used- 
Just an FYI, none of these stamps are available to purchase anymore. BUT, I bet if enough people asked, Kathy just might make up a digital set ;)
Colby and Jack Cheeseheads
Cheesy Packer Fans
Candy Stripe Background

Jaded Blossom

I hope you all liked my cards and thanks for visiting!
Have a great weekend!
GO PACK GO!

Miss You Already

Hi everyone! It's my day to post at Stamp AnnieThing and I have a fun card to share. 
I used the Melanie-Need A Hug stamp set on this card.




I started this card with a standard A2 card base. I added the background mats and used my sewing machine to stitch around the edges.
I stamped and colored Melanie with Copic markers and added her on a mat.
I stamped the sentiment from the Jaded Blossom Sweet Travels stamp set onto a tag cut with the Label Dies.
To finish, I added some black arrows on the top and bottom cut from the Layered Frame and Journal Die.

Have a great day!

Happy Fall

Hi everyone! It's my day to post at Digi My World and I am sharing this cute card I made for the Fall Themed Challenge which you can find in the DMW Members Facebook page HERE. If you choose to play along you will receive this cute digital image just for participating!


I used several images from the Pumpkin Patch Cuties set to create the image for my card.



I started this card with a standard A2 card base and added the mat layers that I cut with the Jaded Blossom Card Mat Dies
In my Silhouette Designers Edition program, I arranged the pumpkins and crows from the Pumpkin Patch Cuties digital stamp set how I wanted them and printed it out.
I colored the image with Copic Markers and cut it out with the Stitched Circle Dies. I matted it onto a Scallop Circle Die and added some twine to the pumpkins.
To finish, I stamped the sentiment from the Harvest Signs stamp set and added some twine with a button.

I hope you all liked my card and will play along in the challenge!
Have a great day!

And now for my project!






I LOVE Hello Kitty and so this is one of my FAVORITE hops every year! This year I decided to do this cute Baby Gift Box.
I started this project with the SVG Cutting Files Angled Side High Box and cut it out with my Cameo.
Instead of adding the decorative panels that come with the file, I instead added simple strips to the sides and added the front square frame cut with the Jaded Blossom Scallop Square Dies.
I cut out the Monkey Suit Hello Kitty and covered her in pink Fun Flock, adding a outline mat in a darker pink. I also added a Doodlebug Sprinkle to her hair bow and some Glossy Accents to the noses. 
I cut the sentiment tab using the Label Dies and added a strip of decorative paper to the bottom half. The sentiment is stamped from the Hello Hello stamp set.
To finish, I added some paper shred to the inside of the box and some baby bath products.

Post It Note Holder and Tutorial

Hi everyone! It's my day to post at Jaded Blossom and I have a fun  Post It Note holder and short tutorial to share. 

Here is the project I made for today


Isn't this cute?! I love that adorable worm!
Today I am going to show you how I made this using the Jaded Blossom Lollipop Die. It is the PERFECT size for post it notes!

Here is what you will need

Jaded Blossom-
Score Board
Sticky Back Hook and Loop circles
Decorative papers and die cut
Post It Notes


















You will start by cutting out the Lollipop Die.
Then you will score it with the scallop side to the right, at 6 1/2 and 6 7/8 inches. Fold along those score lines on the scallop side and the first 2 score lines on opposite side.
Glue in a Post It Note pack to the back side of the Lollipop Die.
Now you're ready to decorate!

















I cut out a piece of blue cardstock to fit the font flap and stamped the background with the Paint Splatter 2.
I cut the worm from the PPPR Bookworm Couple file and stamped the eyes with the Peachy Keen Erkle and Merkle face stamps.
I cut the ruler and clipboard from decorative paper and glued them on. (This paper is from the Doodlebug Take Note 6X6 pad)
To finish, I cut the Flag Die 2 and stamped the sentiment from the Encouragement stamp set. I cut this die down to fit the exact width of the post it note holder, gluing onto the flap just above the scallop border. I added the Hook and Loop tab to the flap for the closure. 
(OPTIONAL-If you want to cover the score marks on back of holder, add another piece of cardstock cut to size)

I am going to enter this into the PPPR Smarty Pants Challenge.

I hope you all liked my project and thanks for visiting! 
Have a great day!

Sunshiny Days

Hi everyone! It's my day to post at Stamp AnnieThing and I have a fun card to share. 
I used the NEW Melanie-You're Sassy stamp set on this card.




I started this card with a standard A2 card base and added the background mat cut with the Jaded Blossom Card Mat Dies.
I cut the smaller mat using the Goody Bag Die and inked it with some Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
I cut the fence piece from the SVG Cutting File Fence Platform Box and added it to the side over the mat.
I stamped and colored Melanie with Copic Markers and pop dotted he onto the card.
To finish, I cut the sun using the Jaded Blossom Spring Dies 2 and pop dotted the layers. I cut the sentiment banner from the Flag Dies 2 and stamped the sentiment from the Annie-Sunshiny Days stamp set.

I hope you all liked my card for today and thanks for visiting!

Toad-Ally Here For You

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge SVG Cutting Files. This month the challenge is Thinking Of You-(can be: hi, encouragement, etc....).



I made this cute card for my project today



I started this card with the Card Sketch -Heart Card 1 file and cut it out with my Cameo. Instead of adding the plain circle to the bottom, I added a flower that I cut from the Jaded Blossom Spring Dies.
I cut out the frog from the Chibi Kids Dressed as Forest Animals and stamped the face with a Peachy Keen In The Garden II face stamp.
To finish, I added a stitched line around mat with a pen and stamped the sentiment from the Jaded Blossom Go Wild stamp set.


I hope you will all play along in the challenge and thanks for visiting!
