Dazzling Dahlias Card - Technique Tuesday Coupon Code

It's been a while since I did a Technique Tuesday post so I'm excited to bring you a pretty dahlia card today.
Technique Tuesday is offering a 20% discount on everything for 5 Days to Celebrate - 5/16 and 5/20 if you use the coupon code HB2U at check out.

The products I used for this card are Dazzling Dahlias stamps and dies and Essential Stitched Labels.






I stamped three dahlias, colored them with Copic markers and die cut them. I used one whole and the other two I trimmed the buds off.  I places one of the dahlias and one set of buds underneath the Essential Stitched Labels piece and the other two on top raised with pieces of foam tape.  The Label is lightly colored with Bundled Sage Distress Oxide Ink.

I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and embossed it in white.  I die cut the Enjoy in black cardstock and the backing piece in vellum cardstock and then placed the sentiment underneath of it.

I love a good white on white card, so I backed this on white cardstock.

Jaded Blossom Birthday Party!

It's a birthday party at Jaded Blossom and what could be better than birthday gnomes!  
It was the coffee gnomes that introduced me to Jaded Blossom and then I found out they were a local company.  I've had so much fun supporting my new friends and coloring all their gnomes. *Ü*


This first party ensemble uses  Kawaii Birthday Stamp Set, Party Gnome Tags Stamps set, Birthday Word Dies Fancy Birthday Sentiments, Birthday Banner Dies, Confetti Stencil, Crate Die and Goodie Bag Die.
 
I love the colors of this festive party card! The background is made with the Confetti Stencil.  I colored the images from the Kawaii Birthday set, cut them out and stacked them up the side of the card. Party Time is from the new Birthday Word Dies cut in black and are layered on vellum cardstock.  Wish Big is from the Fancy Birthday sentiment set. 

Kawaii Birthday Stamp Set

I've put candy filled favors (made with the envelope punch board) in the Crate Die.  I used two of the slats that punch out to create loop handles on the sides.  The darling little gnome sitting on a cupcake is from the Party Gnome Tags Stamp Set as well as the #partygnome sentiment. The cupcakes on the favors are from the Birthday Banner Dies.

This guy is from the same Party 
Gnome Tags set and the bag is the Goodie Bag Die.  I punched holes in the bag and added ribbon handles.

Switching colors, these two birthday cards and tag are festive in reds, yellows and blues.  
The cards are from the Gnome-alicious Birthday Stamp Set and Dies and the tag is from Party Gnome Tags Stamp Set and the Bread Tag Die.


The background is stenciled with the Confetti Stencil.  I stamped, colored and die cut the gnome and leaned him on a present from the Kawaii Birthday Set. The sentiment is from the Birthday Blow Out Stamp Set and the Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Fancy Birthday sentiment set - I love the font on this one!


The background is stenciled with the Confetti Stencil on this card as well.  I stamped, colored and die cut the gnome from Gnome-alicious Birthday and placed him among the birthday images from the Kawaii Birthday Set.

The bag of candies is tied up with the Bread Tag Die.  The gnome is from the Party Gnome Tags Stamp Set. The banner that is laying in front is from the Birthday Banners Die Set.

Happy Birthday Jaded Blossom!  Thanks for letting me party with you.

It is the 9th of the month, which means it is time for the Concord & 9th May Release!  YAY!

This month is lots of rainbows and butterflies, bold graphics and two new Turnabout stamps. The new product video is at the bottom of this post.


Another bold graphic sentiment set called Everyday Sayings.  I LOVE this set! The huge 'hi' and 'hello' are perfect card size.  It also included two scripty fonts on 'friend' and 'so grateful'.
for this card I used the 'hi' and 'there' from Everyday Sayings and the 'I think you are incredible' is from the Bold Butterflies Bundle.
The print on the 'hi' is made with the Fluttering By Turnabout.


The background on this one is made with the Fluttering By Turnabout.  Hello and friend are from 
Everyday Sayings.  The butterfly index ring (see video) is made with index cards, 1/2" binder rings and the Bold Butterflies Bundle.

Pretty much the same on this card, the background on this one is made with the Fluttering By Turnabout.  'So grateful' is from Everyday Sayings.  
'Thank you for being so kind' is from Bold Butterflies Bundle.
The butterfly index ring (see video) is made with index cards1/2" binder rings and the Bold Butterflies Bundle.

Switching gears to a fun new rainbow set, these two cards are made with the Rainbow Stitches and Strings Bundle. This rainbow is made to mimic the trend in the photo below.
