Valentine Scratch Off Coupons, DIY!!

Hi everyone... today I wanted to share with you some fun and simple DIY Scratch off Valentines Coupons!  Now you can really use this concept for just about anything...but since Valentines Day is just around the corner, I opted to make some fun Coupons for the hubby!
Now I won't lie...these do take some planning.... the actual making of them is a piece of cake..but the planning is VERY important!
So gather around the supplies you will need which are:
Metallic Paint, Clear Dish soap, Rubber stamps, Packing Tape,Painters Tape, all the paper and dies and embellies you plan to use.

This first thing you need to do is come up with some sort of "template" for your coupons/card etc.  You need to do this important step so you know where things will be layed out so you know where to put your Scratch Off Part.  I just created on my computer a simple plain Coupon template.. that has a box for my scratch off (planning comes in handy cause you need to know which stamps you plan to use to make sure your box is the right size!)

Nest you need to stamp what your coupon is good for.  In my examples, I am offering up Dinner on Me, A Good Lunch, Something Pretty, The Movies, etc.  I had all these wonderful stamps on the JB Gift Card Galore Set.

Next you need to mask off the area that will be your "scratch Off" with your packing tape.  I used an exact-o knife to make it the exact square of my window.

Next you need to take some PAINTERS tape and mask around your area so when you paint doesnt get on the Coupon part of your card. Then you need to mix 2 Parts Paint to 1 Part Dish Soap.... mix it WELL and then do a light coat over your window area.
 THE HARD PART?  Letting each coat dry in between...YES it takes several coats... so don't rush a thin coat, allow it to dry..then apply another and another!!
Once your paint is completely dry... peel off your painters tape... decorate your coupon card with stamps, dies, embellishments, etc...and your final project looks something like this!

 All Stamps and Dies are from Jaded Blossom.  We used Gift Cards Galore,  Simple Sayings Valentine Editions,  and Valentines Die.

What the French, Toast?

Hi everyone! I made up some super fast and easy projects last week and finally have time to share them!

As many of you know, I just LOVE kawaii!  Its seriously my favorite style of art...and I tend to incorporate it in as much as I can!
This is the new digital stamps, Kawaii French Toast from Digi My World. Freaking cute, right?  I colored him with my copics...yeah - he is a little toasted...but Im a dark toast, not light toast girl!! lol

I added some Butter Popcorn Jelly Belly Jelly Beans into the Jaded Blossom boxes... tied on some Cherry Red twine...and stamps the perfect sentiment from JB's  Kawaii Sentiment set.  I added it to their awesome Flag Die to get some color contrast!

Lettuce Catch Up...Kawaii fun!!

Hi everyone, today I have a super cute project using digital stamps for Digi My World!

The Kawaii Lettuce and Kawaii Radishing digital stamps were used this go around.  They are such simple images, and tons of fun to color!

I attached them to a Jaded Blossom Treat Tag, stamped the adorable LETTUCE CATCH UP! sentiment from Kawaii Sentiments....and attached it to a rectangle tube filled with lime green Mike and Ike candies!
I added some Maya Road Twine and some polka dot washi tape to jazz it up a little bit more!

Cupid In Clouds, Digi My World Stamp release!

Hi everyone! Annie here to show you a super quick and easy treat I made for Valentines Day!
I used the new Cupid In Cloud Digital Stamp and colored him with my copics.  The set comes with quite a few adorable images, I choose the one of the boy laying on his tummy looking down from the clouds!
I added my image to a treat bag filled with Hershey Kisses!  I used the Fancy topper Die from Jaded Blossom and their Scallop Heart from Valentines Die to put my sentiment on.  I used a cute one from Sprinkled with Love.  The kisses are lots of fun too, because I used the Conversation Candies to put on the bottom.  Isn't this cute?  Fast and easy treat bag to hand out to the kids classes this year!  Oh and I tied some wonderful Pink twine on too... I got it from Pick Your Plum..its got 2 shades of pink and white twisted.....its really THICK twine, I LOVE IT!
