I'm so excited that this bundle of stamps has come out right before Halloween. Such a perfect time of year to make invitations and thank you cards!!! For my invitation, I used SVG Cutting Files new Moon Shaped Card with Cat Silhouettes. The card comes with three different cat shapes. On the outside of the card, I used Jaded Blossom's Flag Die, new Invitations Galore Bundle, Pick Your Poison, and Halloween Paint Splatters. It is such a Spooktacular combination!


I used more Jaded Blossom on the inside - I used Halloween Paint Splatters and the Invitations Galore Bundle again. And for my exclamation mark, I used 100% Hipster.

I am so excited about how this card turned out! I know that I will be using the new Moon Shaped Card over and over again. And the Invitation Galore Bundle will definitely be a go to for party planning! I hope you like it all as much as I do!

Believe in Yourself!

Well you all know that every other week on Tuesdays it's my day to take over the Jaded Blossom Blog and so here I am today to show you a sweet gift set.

As an older woman, sometimes I think it is important to remind a young lady that no matter what she just needs to believe in herself!!! So that is what this set is about. It will be a gift set to let one special young lady know that I believe in her too!


I decided to make a card and gift box set. The box will be filled with chocolates. Yum!!! For the card, I used Card Mat DiesRectangle Dies 2Bow DiesMini Tag Dies 2, and Encouragement.


The box was made from an SVG file from SVG Cuts called Simple Box. I reduced the size so that it would better hold some Ghirardelli Squares. I then used Bow Dies and Mini Tag Dies again - along with Chocoholic for the sentiment.The gray paper is from Co'ordinations and the black card stock is from Papertrey Ink. I added a few black embellishments as well.

So glad you stopped by to take a look!!!

Blessings,

You Cast a Spell on Me!

Anyone else counting down besides me?! Forty-three days before Fright Night and I just had to make this cutie card for a Halloween smile!

And don't both of these characters just suck you in with those grins!!!

"Yes, Madam Witch, You Cast a Spell on Me!!!"


I made this fun card using the 'Wicked Spooky' and 'Little Gems Wicked' files from Treasure Box Designs. Little Gems Wicked was used for the witches' hat.

The papers are from my paper stash - not sure who they are from; but I used dies from Jaded Blossom to cut them and the sweet ghost - Rectangle Dies 1, Scallop Slider and Topper Die, and Halloween Dies. The sentiment is from a company that is now out of business. And the cute face stamp on the ghost is from Peachy Keen Stamps - PK-1410.



Hope you like this sweet card as much as I do!!! Thanks for stopping by and I hope your days are Spooktacular leading up to Halloween!

Blessings,

Jaded Blossom August Release Blog Hop!

Hey Everyone! 


Now if you're here from Mel's Blog then you're in the right place; but if you're just passing through, start at the beginning because you don't want to miss anything.  I also have the complete line up at the bottom.

I decided to make two projects for you today. 

The first is a Birthday Gift Set:


My youngest is turning 8 in a couple of weeks and I thought I'd use the new balloon border die from Border Dies 2 to make a fun and bright gift bag with a matching card. I used a couple different collections of paper from Doodlebug Design. I used lots of Jaded Blossom Goodies on these - the new Border Dies 2, Rectangle Dies 1, Rectangle Dies 2, Alphabet Dies, Candy Charms and Banner Dies, and the new Happy Hello stamp set. I love how easy it is to emboss the stamps from Happy Hello. The cardstock base for the card is Papertrey Ink's Pure Poppy. The svg file for the bag is from SVG Cuts' Happy Holidays Kit.


My second project came together in my mind as I kept contemplating the cloud border dies also in the new Border Dies 2 set. Halloween is my uncontested favorite holiday. 
Ghost and Goblins, oh my!!!


I used several dies from Jaded Blossom - Rectangle Dies 1, Border Dies 2, Halloween Dies, and Spring Dies 2 - cutting each one out with watercolor paper. I then used Distress Ink to add all the color. The Distress colors used are Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, and Black Soot. The Happy Halloween sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. And the cute ghost face is from Peachy Keen Stamps (PK-1410). The cardstock base is Papertrey Ink's True Black.




Regular Price for the Release Package is $142.99

Free 3x4 Stamp for customers that spend $40 or more before Taxes and Shipping! FREEBIE is only available until Sunday 8/14, 11:59 PM PST.

We also have the Release Blog Hop coming up tonight at 4 PM Pacific Time!!! I hope you will come back by for that. There will be tons more inspiration from this week's release and a chance to win as well.

So the last two stamps sets are Meal Plan and Good Fortune. I have used Meal Plan for my project:



Well everyone needs a Cheat Day every once in awhile, right!!! Stick a gift card in this holder for your favorite treat or sweet spot and give it to someone who just needs to cheat!!! LOL! To make this, I also used the Folding Gift Card Die, Goody Bag Die, Candy Charms and Banners, the new Border Dies 2, and Kawaii Candies 2. The paper is from Bo Bunny. The Cola and Pretzel svg files are from My Scrap Chick's Snacks Vol.1.

Hello Summer! JB August Release Day 4

It is the Jaded Blossom August Release Week and today is Day 4!!!

Today we have an awesome set of stamps to share that will expand the possibilities for yesterday's Happy Hello stamp set - it is the Happy Hello Add-On! I love both of these stamp sets!!!

Here is my project for today:


Don't you just love the way the Happy and the Hello pop on this gift set! And the new Happy Hello Add-On set - well it really does give me more reasons to be Happy or say Hello!!!

I choose the Hello Summer combination for my card and the You Make Me Happy combination for my Goody Bag thinking of how fun it would be to put a gift card in the bag for my bestie so that we could both go get pedicures.  Nothing like a good pedicure and the warm sun to make a girl happy, right!!! And I'd stuff a few chocolates in there too just to bring a bit more joy to it all!


For this project, I broke out my favorite Papertrey Ink Cardstock in Black, Kraft, Vintage Cream, and Raspberry Fizz. Besides the Happy Hello and Happy Hello Add-Ons sets, I also used the Rectangle Dies 1, Rectangles Dies 2, and the Stitched Circles Dies from Jaded Blossom. All the sentiments were heat embossed using Versamark and some black embossing powder. And the super cute Toucan and flower svg files are from Treasure Box Designs Budsies Toucan set.

I'm sorry if you missed the Gotta Have it Now Package that ran through Wednesday, but I'm excited that this whole release goes live tomorrow night Friday August 12th at 4 PM Pacific Time.


Here is a preview of today's stamp set:


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will head on over to the Jaded Blossom Blog to see all the great projects by the entire design team.

See you tomorrow with another fun project!

You all are going to love today's stamp sets - Happy Hello and Paisley! Happy Hello has so many fun possibilities! Today I am using both stamp sets on this set of cards:

Koala-fied! JB August Release Day 1

Well it is August Release Week at Jaded Blossom and we have an exciting week planned for you.

Today we are kicking it all off by giving you a sneak of the new Border Dies 2, Kawaii Sentiments 2, and Kawaii Candies 2. Yay!!!

Here is my fun project:


 I made this fun gift set using the new Border Dies 2 and Kawaii Sentiments 2. I also used the Mini Tag Dies 2. I can imagine giving it to a kiddo who has just graduated from college and hired for their first job. Or maybe for a good friend or colleague who just got a great promotion. It would be sure to bring a smile to their faces! I'm sure you can come up with lots of ways to use this fun sentiment as well.


The cute Koala Bear is from Treasure Box Designs Stuffy Pals collection. The Vintage Label Card Base and Trapezoid Box is from SVG Cutting Files. The perfect background paper usually comes from Doodlebug Design and this card is no exception. The kraft cardstock used to make the card base and box is from Papertrey Ink.

#1 Teacher! August 2016 Challenge at Jaded Blossom

It's Challenge Time at Jaded Blossom. This month's challenge is:

Crafter's Choice!!!

Well that makes it easy, doesn't it! 
School starts here on Thursday, so I decided to make a fun teacher gift to start the year.


I made this card and matching treat bag with some crayon shaped erasers. My daughter fell in love with the erasers, so her teacher may only get the card. LOL!



I loved the pencil die in the blue color to make it look more like a colored pencil. Too fun!!! 

I hope you will join us this month and show off all your awesome projects using Jaded Blossom projects. Head on over to the Jaded Blossom blog to enter and while you are there, check out all the fun projects by the JB team.
