Jaded Blossom April Release Hop

Hey Everyone!  Welcome to Jaded Blossom's April Stamp Release Blog Hop.  
If you're here from Cindy's blog you're in the right place, if you're just passing through you'll want start at the beginning so you don't miss a thing. 
 I also have the complete line up at the bottom, if a link goes astray along the way.

Here is what I made:

Are there any How I Met Your Mother fans out there? Every time I see this sentiment from the Born to Ride set I giggle and think legend.... wait for it..... ary! I embossed it in silver onto black cardstock and then cut with the coordinating Born To Ride Outline Dies.

I thought this sentiment would go well with a biker girl, so I pulled out the Girl Gnome Die and the new Gnome Dies: Motorcycle Add Ons and got to work.  I cut the bike from some shiny black and foil papers from Christmas and Halloween Recollections paper pads.  I cut her leather jacket from mushroom cardstock and inked with black soot distress ink. Her shirt and bandana are done with some red patterned paper, with a bit of Copic marker shading.

The background for my mini slimline card is an old scrap of paper from a Tim Holtz 12 x 12 pad from years gone by.  I splattered it with a healthy dose of silver glimmer metallic ink and black india ink, then layered everything together to finish it off.

That's all from me. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you've enjoyed the peeks this past week. Be sure to leave a little love in the comments as you hop about for a chance to win the hop giveaway!

April Not 2 Shabby Video Hop

Hi friends! It's time for the April YouTube video hop for the Not 2 Shabby Shop! Today I'll be sharing cards made with the  April Stamp and Die of the Month, April Paper Pad Club, plus the Never Say No to Coffee Ephemera Pack. Hop along on YouTube and enter the giveaway to win a $25 gift certificate to the Not 2 Shabby Shop.

I made three cards for today's hop, and have uploaded a video of me making this first card.  All three cards are done in a similar fashion using either stamped images or ephemera. You can watch the video below or on my YouTube channel.

The background technique is super easy and great for using up scraps. I used new papers, but cut them down into 6" x 3" sections to work with for the card. Start by laying down one scrap at an angle, gluing to the card base and cutting off the excess. Continue your way around the card base leaving a small border in between each paper until you've filled the entire card.  For this card, I stamped several of the images from the Cup of Thanks Stamp of the Month, colored with Copic markers and then cut with the coordinating dies. I also embossed the bean images and the sentiment in white on brown cardstock  and then die cut.

I grabbed a Verve pennant die from my stash, cut from red cardstock, then glued everything together for a quick and oh so easy card.

For this second card, I pulled some pieces from the Never Say No To Coffee ephemera, and an embossed sentiment from the stamp of the month. For this one, I gave a bit of an accent between each panel by laying down some Love from Lizi pinstripe stickers in the grooves.

For the final card, I used the same papers and more ephemera pieces and accented with a bit of those Love from Lizi peel offs across my pennant element.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous day!
