Happy Halloween!

I just want to share the treats I made my nephews for today.
I used the Jaded Blossom Treat Tag Die and Too Cute to Spook stamp set to create a tag for my little treats. The candy corn is a cut file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons. I tied some hemp twine into a bow and attached it with a glue dot.

Jaded Blossom :: Hi Pumpkin

Good morning and Happy Sunday! Today I'm sharing my last post as a Jaded Blossom guest designer. I've had a blast designing alongside of this DT and being involved in all of the Jaded Blossom fun this month. Thanks so much for having me Candace and Michelle, you two are awesome!

The project for today will be one of my last fall type projects for the year. Now it's time to head on to Thanksgiving and Christmas...can you believe it?! Time sure is flying by!
I got some little pumpkin candles at my local Joann's store and added a simple Jaded Blossom tag to it. I used the Layered Journal Frame Die for the tag and added this cute little pumpkin from the Chibi Dressed Pumpkins over at SVG Cutting Files
The sentiment is from the Let's Talk Turkey stamp set.

Jaded Blossom :: Feel Better Soon!

Good morning! Today I've got a super cute 3-D treat project up on my blog!

I have a friends' husband that just had some major surgery, so I wanted to make him something to get him feeling back to his old self. :) I came across this adorable little 3-D Doctor's Bag over at SVG Cutting Files, and knew it would be perfect to go with some Jaded Blossom stamps!
For the patterned paper, I found a digital scrapbooking bundle over at Sweet Shoppe Designs called Bumps & Bruises. I used my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition to fill the cut file with several patterned papers in the kit. Then cut everything out onto Epson Matte Presentation paper with my Epson Workforce printer. I've found that this matte presentation paper has such fantastic, vivid colors when printing digital scrapbook papers, that it's the paper I generally use. (I do like to print and cut on Bazzill textured cardstock, but I don't do it as often, because the colors aren't the same.)
I used some miscellaneous circle punches to create a tag for my sentiment from the Get Well Soon stamp set and attached it with some black hemp twine. And what's a treat without some Hershey kisses and Jaded Blossom Candies stamps?!

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons :: Design Team Day

It's that time again! Time to share another Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons design team post!

Today my project is all about digital products! I used some digital papers and a digital stamp for my focal image on this Halloween card. :)
The background paper is from the PPPR All Hallow's Eve Patterns Paper Pack
I filled the PPPR Notebook Pages cut file with another digital paper pattern, stamped my digital stamp onto it, and then used the print and cut feature to cut it out. I found some washi tape files in my Silhouette Library and filled them with different patterns from the All Hallow's Eve paper packs.
And finally this orange burlap type ribbon was from Liz's PaperLoft Boutique. She has since closed her boutique down, which is probably the reason why I have no idea what it's actually called! :)

Jaded Blossom :: Party Time

Good morning! Today I am posting as a guest designer over at the Jaded Blossom blog! I had a blast working along side the entire Jaded Blossom team for release week, and here is my first individual guest DT post for October!

Today's project is a birthday card for a close family friend, pretty much like a little sister! :) Happy Birthday Brittany! I hope you have a fabulous day!
I used some Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons cut files on this card. To create the base and extra layers, I used Layered Labels 3 and this adorable little pup is from Birthday Critters
Oh my word, is he super cute or what?!
I used the Jaded Blossom Candy Charms and Banners dies and Sweet Birthday Wishes for the sentiment on the front as well as the inside of the card. :)

Boys & Their Toys Challenge!

Guess what?! This is actually my SECOND post for today and I've finally found some time to enter a challenge! (It ends today...nothing like waiting until the last minute, right?) 

This challenge is being hosted by Annie and the DT over at SVG Cutting Files. And it's all about boys! The challenge is to create anything to do with boys & their toys. :)
AND...I've made two projects for the challenge!

The first project is using the Chibi Jeep file. I decided to make it into a shaped card and add the sentiment right onto the truck.
 I created the card base by using the offset feature to create a shadow. After duplicating and flipping the shadow layer, we have the card base. Super easy to do.

And for my second project I created this super cute little flying super hero! The inspiration for this card came from a card made by the super talented Jessica over at Chick-n-Scrap. And the card behind it was the one she entered into the challenge as well! :) I hope she doesn't mind me scrap-lifting the clean and simple project! You can find this super hero (and several more) in the Super Kid - Super Hero Boy file.
 The base for this card is the Wave Card Base. I used the offset feature to create an additional layer.

Digi My World :: Pumpkin Season

Good morning! Today I have yet another fall themed card to share with you!

I'm using a digital stamp from the Digi My World Pumpkin Patch Cutie file which you can find here.

Isn't she just the cutest?! :)
 I used the Bracket Card SVG file from SVG Cutting Files for my card base. The rectangle layers were created with the rectangle tool and the offset feature.
 I printed my digital stamp onto X-Press It Blending paper with my Epson printer and then colored her with copics.
