Are you lost?

Happy Tuesday! Today I wanted to share a card with you that I created using one of my favorite Jaded Blossom stamps.. Cheesy Pick Ups! Sentiment reads.. "Are you Lost? It's strange to see an angel so far from Heaven!"

This cute angel bear is from Bear Hugs Paper Piecing

The paper is Echo Park and the cardstock is Paper Trey ink. I also used the new Strawberry Twine from The Twinery!

Super Hero Blog Hop!

Happy Friday! And WELCOME to the Super Hero Blog Hop! 

My friend Ruthie and I are total nerds and love all things geeky and super hero so we decided to co-host this blog hop! And I am super excited to share my project with you! 

This is a Spiderman Gift Card box! 

I used Jaded Blossom's "Super Hero" stamp set for the sentiment. This stamp set is only $11.99 and has FREE SHIPPING this weekend only!!
Check it out here.. 

If you checked out my hop project yesterday you would of seen a Monkey project using the same sentiment! So many ways to flip these sentiments! The sentiment is on the Jaded Blossom flag die.

Here is a side view.. I cut the spiderman face out on my Cameo from a free file I found online. The box is also cut out on my Cameo from the Silhouette Store.

And top view.. Isn't that brick paper perfect? I saw it and its what inspired me to create this project. 

I can't wait to put a gift card in this and give it as a gift to a nephew!

Now.. whats a blog hop without a prize?!?!?

We are giving away this YourStory Photo Personal Bookbinding Kit! To be eligible to win you have until Sunday night at midnight to comment on all the blog hop participants posts. A winner will be selected at random and posted over on Ruthie's blog on Monday! 

Thanks so much for hopping with us! Here is the complete line up in case you get lost.
Your next stop is... YOLANDA!!

So most of you know I like nerdy things :) And well with all these super hero movies coming out I needed some super hero stamp sentiments for birthday cards etc! Being part owner of Jaded Blossom has its perks because wa-la.. here are those stamps!!

And now to bring you to my project.. 

"Swinging my to wish you a happy birthday" is from the Super Hero set and is stamped on the flag die. This cute monkey is from Treasure Box designs. I used Birthday Kisses and Pattern Kisses on the bottom of the hershey kisses. Yes I know they are currently sold out BUT will be back in stock in the store next week!!
