With Sympathy..

Hey there!  I just wanted to take a moment and share a sympathy card I made for one of my friends.

For this card I used the tree and "with Sympathy" sentiment off of the Simple Sayings set from Jaded Blossom  as well as their flag die.    The circle and  scalloped circle are Spellbinder dies.

July Favors

Good morning!  I just love these wands from Jaded Blossom!  
I love making treats for the holidays and handing them out at work--so these were perfect!
The pinwheel is a file I got off the Silhouette Store and was quick and easy enough to assemble 15 of them in no time!  
The patterned paper I used was from Pebbles "Let Freedom Ring" collection. The combination of stripes and dots were perfect!  
I attached the pinwheel to the  clear wand from Jaded Blossom with a big brad I picked up at Michaels and filled the tube with red, white and blue Sixlets.
Of course this couldn't be complete without using the flag die!  
I stamped the word "Celebrate" off of the "Miscellaneous Fun" set using ink from Stampin' UP.  

I hope you enjoyed my festive treat as much as my coworkers did!  

Thanks from stopping by

Jaded Blossom Release Day 3

Hey there and welcome to the last day of 
the Jaded Blossom Stamp Sneak Release! 
Today's sneak is of two more super cute sets --
Baby Kisses and Wedding Kisses.   

For my project I used  the Baby Kisses and the Patterned Kisses set (shown on Release Day 1.)  

To create this box I used the 3D gable box and the baby carriage file from the Silhouette Online Store. 

I wanted to create a little window so that you could see the goodies inside, so I placed the baby carriage on one of the large solid sides. Once it was all cut out, I removed the positive image of the baby carriage and adhered a piece of transparency to the inside.  

For the kisses, I stamped the cute little feet and the "It's a Girl" off of the Baby Kisses set and the big dots off of the Patterned Set.  I used the 3/4" round punch to cut them out and adhered them to the bottom of pink "It's a girl!" Hershey kisses with glue dots.  

Hope you enjoyed my sweet little treat and don't forget to check out the Jaded Blossom website to view the complete sets as well as other fabulous creations by their talented design team.  

Remember-- today is the last day of the Sneak Release so don't forget to check in tomorrow on their website at 4pm for the Release Day Blog Hop!

Jaded Blossom Release Day 2

Hey everyone!
It is day two of the Jaded Blossom Stamp Release sneak!
Today's sneak peek is of two stamps sets --"Birthday Kisses" and "Sport Kisses"  

For this project, I decided to use the Sport kisses as well as the new bags they are releasing this month.  These bags are 3"x4" and are the perfect size for treats! 

  The football was a file off the Silhouette store and the word "Ravens" was a file that I got off of  Cutting Files for You site .  For the word "Ravens",  I threw out the positive and used the flag dies to layer my tag.  

The dark chocolate and almond kisses were the perfect colors for this treat and the stamps fit nicely on the bottom!  The stamps I used off this set were the Go Team, the football, and the #1.

I hope you have enjoyed my treat!  Make sure you check out the Jaded Blossom website to see these complete stamp sets as well as all the other great creations from their design team! 
See ya tomorrow for another fun sneak!

Jaded Blossom Release Day 1

Hey everyone!  It's Monday and it is the first day of the Jaded Blossom Stamp Release sneak!
Today's sneak peek is of two stamps sets --"Pattern Kisses" and "Friendly Kisses"  

For my project I decided to use the Friendly Kisses set

For the flowers I cut out 5 different sized flowers off of the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and inked the tips. I used a veining tool from my cake decorating kit to make a slight crease in each of the petals and then rolled the two bottom layers down and the top two layers up in order to give it a little dimension.

  For the center of the flower I used the flower stamp off of the Friendly Kisses stamp set.  I placed the flowers on the top of ta Jaded Blossom wand which I filled with green mini M&Ms. 

Around the wand I used the flag die from Jaded Blossom to attach my sentiment. The "Sweet Thanks" sentiment is also off of the Friendly Kisses stamp set.

Make sure you visit the Jaded Blossom website to view these complete sets!

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure stop by again tomorrow for Day 2 of the sneak!

Jaded Blossom July Challenge

Hey all,
it's July and it's time for a new challenge with Jaded Blossom!
This month is really exciting for me because  I have been given the opportunity to be the guest designer for their July release --you are going to love them!  

The challenge this month is to create ANY party favor with ANY Jaded Blossom Stamp.  
Since we all know July is the month for fireworks, I decided to make a cute little treat holder.

The sentiment I used was "Celebrate" off of the Jaded Blossom's Miscellaneous Fun set.  I wanted to add a little dimension so I stamped the star off of that set  as well and pop dotted it and used twine from Twinery as the tail

I found this cute little sparkler bear girl on the "4th of July Bears" file from Scrapping Bug Designs. With the little stars on her shoes and dress straps, I thought this star patterned paper was perfect!

I hope this has inspired you to join the July challenge, thanks for stopping by!
