Kathy Salido ~ Guest Designer

Hello all you Jaded Blossom Fans!!
It has been such a blast being a guest designer for 
Jaded Blossom this month.  I am so sad that it has 
come to an end.  Today I am sharing my final project.

So for my final project, I wanted to use
the Jaded Blossom Roses Stamp.
I have been wanting to try watercoloring, 
 so I tried coloring up a couple of these beautiful Roses
I stamped the roses and leaves
onto watercolor cardstock using Versamark.
I used sparkle embossing powder and my heat gun.
Then I colored them in using  my
Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers and a waterbrush.
As I was coloring the roses in, I thought, what Sentiment
will I use??  Well a friend from church recently lost
her son, so I thought I would make her a sympathy card
I heat embossed the sentiment with White Embossing Powder.
I finished my card with a little twine and some sequins.
I also used Card Mat Dies for the background piece
and sentiment label.

I have really enjoyed reading all your wonderful
comments and want to thank Candace and Michelle
for having me as a guest designer!!

PDE Linky Party 05/27/16

Hello and Happy Friday!
It is time for a new PDE Linky Party and
as always the Theme is ANYTHING GOES!!
Today I am sharing a couple of cards
I made for my Grandkids.
They were recently in their school play.
This year they did Peter Pan,
my grandson was Hook and my granddaughter 
was one of the pirates.
For both cards I used SVG files from PPBN Designs.
For the Hook card, I used MFT Stamps Blueprints 15 dies
for all the elements on my card.  I used Peachy Keens
Happy New Year Face Stamps
For the inside sentiment on  both cards,
I used My Favorite Things Count the Stars
For this card, I used MFT Stamps Blueprints 24 dies
For this cutie , I used Peachy Keens Sweet and Innocent Faces
The play was a huge success and both kids did a fabulous job!!

Last night was their cast party, and my daughter in law was in charge
of decorations, so I whipped up these images for her for the 
centerpieces.  I made 10 set of these for the table.


We can't wait to see your projects
and remember it is ANYTHING GOES,
so any handmade item is eligible!!

Jaded Blossom May Release Blog Hop

Hey Everyone! 

Now if you're here from Michelle 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:

I used this month's freebie to create a fun treat

I used the new Envelope Dies and Treat Tag Die to create a 
Gift Card Holder.  I stamped the sentiment from Birthday in Style
onto a mat cut from the Card Mat dies.  

Here is a tip when cutting the large envelope.
I only have a Cuttlebug and I was having great difficulty cutting 
the largest envelope with my Cuttlebug since the die is the length of 
the whole cutting pad. Candace gave me a great tip that worked like a 
charm.  I taped the die to the paper with some washi tape being sure 
to remove most  of the sticky.  I ran half the die through, then turned it 
around and ran the other half through and it worked like a charm!!
I filled one of the Candy Tubes with some Skittles
and then created a tag using the Scallop Circle Die
and the Stitched Circle Die.  I stamped both sentiments
using the Birthday In Style stamp with Versamark and 
then heat embossed using Zing Embossing Powder.
