Jaded Blossom Guest Desinger

Hello and Happy Wednesday!!
Today I have the honor to be a
December Guest Designer here at Jaded Blossom!!
I want to thank Candace and Michelle for
the opportunity to be featured on their blog,
and to be able to highlight their amazing products!

I need to start wrapping all my Christmas presents,
but first I need some tags!!  I always put homemade
tags on all my gifts.  So of course I reached for Jaded Blossom!! 
I started with the Treat Tag Die.  
I used the beautiful Swirly Tree and Reindeer
from Christmas Wishes for all my tags.

I cut 2 of the tags from Watercolor Paper.
Love these colors!! 
These are my favorites!!  I first stamped my images
with Versamark Ink and then added 
Hero Arts Sparkle Embossing Powder.
I then inked up the tags with
Distress Ink.  I added gems from my stash.

For my other tags, I used Bo Bunny Pattern Paper.

I used Card Mat Dies for my tags and the 
sentiment is also from Christmas Wishes.

I just love the these swirly images!!
These tags were super easy to put together
and I plan on making alot more!!

Thanks so much for visiting!!

PDE Linky Party 12-04-15

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 set of christmas cards that I made
for one of the ladies at my church that will be distributing cards
to senior citizens in convalescent homes.  I made 40 cards,
in 8 different color combinations!!  I kept the design very simple
so they would be easy to mass produce.
Here is a close up of my favorite color combo!
I started with glitter card bases that I bought
from Joann's.  The stamp set I used for the tree 
is My Favorite Things Trim the Tree.
I honestly don't recall which stamp set 
I used for the sentiment!!
I inked up the stamps with different
inks, mostly using 1 in. ink cubes. 
They needed a little more, so I added
a strip of patterned paper, again from
My Favorite Things, then finished with
a few Doodlebug Sprinkles.
Here is a pic of all 8 color combos.
I made 5 of each color.
I really need to make some more of these
as they were so easy, and I like the way
they turned out!!

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