Wishing You Comfort

 Hi Crafty Friends,

It's my day to post on the Jaded Blossom blog.

Sadly I had to make several sympathy cards recently.  I'd like to share my design and the Jaded Blossom products I used.

The inspiration for this design came from a Make N Take at Memories for the Making sponsored by LaLa Land Crafts.



Here are links to the Jaded Blossom products:

Cut it Up Challenge #211 ~ Sketch

Hi Crafty Friends,

We have a fun SKETCH challenge for you at Cut it Up Challenge Blog.
You'll find the sketches at the bottom of the post.  You may select either one for your entry.

Here's my card for the challenge.


I chose the image and sentiment from the set, Dreamers, by Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I used Jaded Blossom Dies for the project, Card Mat Dies, Stitched Squares, Scallop Circle Dies, and Mushroom Dies.  The image was colored using Copic Markers.

This is a birthday card for my nephew who got a new puppy awhile back.  

Here are the sketches for you to choose from ~ have fun and link your project using the link above.

You Are One of a Kind

 Hi Crafty Friends,

It's my design team day on the Jaded Blossom Blog.

I hope you loved everything in our new release.  I'm still thinking of ways to use the different products.

For today's project I used the Pumpkin Stencil.  Although I used Halloween colors, the message is slightly different and a little more personal.


I dry embossed the stencil using my Cuttlebug then inked it with Distress Ink and a blending brush.

I used a sentiment from the Peacock set along with Card Mat DiesPostage DiesFlag Dies, and Pumpkin Faces.

I hope you like my twist on the traditional Halloween message.

Cut it Up Challenge #210 ~ Join us for World Card Making Day

Hi Crafting Friends,

We're celebrating World Card Making Day at Cut it Up.

Personally, I think EVERYDAY is card making day but it's fun to celebrate with our crafting community.
Our sponsor, The Cutting Cafe, provided us with some PDFs to help us create for this challenge.


I printed the PDF and then used my Scan NCut 2 to cut out the images before coloring them with Copic Markers.
I've been on a craft room cleaning and sorting kick and found these fun yellow doilies which I thought would make a great background for my pumpkin patch. 

I hope you'll play along with our challenge.  The winner will receive a choice of files from
The Cutting Cafe.



Jaded Blossom's Halloween Release ~ Final Sneak Peek

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I'm sharing a project made using our final item in the Jaded Blossom Halloween release 
sneak peeks.
I hope you have the Clear Jar Stamp set because here is another Add On for your collection.

I moved away from cutesy for this project and let a little bit of the creepy/scary in.





I couldn't resist this bottle of "Skeleton Bones" candy so it became the inspiration
for my project.  All of the stamping was heat embossed for shine and dimension.

Jaded Blossom products used:
Clear Jar- Halloween Add On (NEW)
Mesh Stencil (NEW)

Our Halloween Release Blog Hop begins at midnight.  It will be your chance to purchase all of the release items and get the freebie stamp set, RIP, if your purchase is $40 or more before tax and shipping and to visit each design team member's blog to see even more fun and fabulous release week projects.

Here is today's final sneak peek set and also the freebie set.

Pearly Sparkles Monthly Challenge for October ~ Mostly Black and/or Purple

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's finally October - my birthday month! - and time for a new challenge at
Pearly Sparkles Challenge.

This month's challenge is to use mostly Black and/or Purple on your creation.
Here's what I designed.


I ink blended the background using Distress Inks mixed with a touch of glycerin.  I put Liquid Pixie Dust on a paint brush and flicked it over the background.  Not only did it add a touch of sparkle but the water base also reacted with the ink.
The stamp was one of the very first clear stamp sets I purchased when I began this journey oh so many years ago.  I don't even know the manufacturer - oops- but I love it, especially when the images are heat embossed.  It's really a very simple card but I think it's really pretty.

I hope you'll play along with us this month.  Be sure to visit the blog to see how other design team members responded to the challenge.

Thanks for visiting.
