Jaded Blossom September Release Day 1 - Be Scary!

Welcome to day one of the Jaded Blossom September Release week!
i love this time of year, Fall and Halloween, so this release is going to be super fun!

My spooky treat today was done using the new Jaded Blossom Scallop slider & Topper die. This is not part of the release, so you can get it now!  I started layering the topper with some spooky papers, and a die cut spider web and drippy border from the new Halloween Dies.

The little Chibi Vampire from SVG Cutting Files is so cute, even for a little monsters. The face was stamped using PKS Make A Monster Face stamp set.

Using the new Spooky Labels stamps, I stamped a sentiment in red ink and attached it with some foam tape on top of the web. 

Now my topper was ready for the bag filled with sour cherry candies. If you need treat bags, like I used here, you can find those in the Jaded Blossom store here as well. I used the 3x4 bags for this project.

Here's a look at the complete stamp sets showcased today.

Jaded Blossom September challenge- Create Any Treat!!

It's time Jaded Blossom's September Challenge!

This months challenge is "Any Treat" and we are doing things a tad different with the stamp release this week. We are actually releasing this new die TODAY, August 31st  (available for purchase this afternoon along with the Gotta Have it Now Bundle and other "Fun Extras"). 
This die is NOT included in Septembers Stamp Release Bundle.
This die is from the creative mind of Barb Orvis - yeah that's me!!!

This die works as a topper die with insert for treats but also has another fabulous use.. The gray piece shown on the insert is used to create tabs inside your topper die so that you can slide different candy or treat items through it (or use it with gift cards). 
Challenge Guidelines: 
1) Project must be new for this challenge, no back linking
2) Project must have a Jaded Blossom stamp somewhere on it. 
3) Only one entry per person
4) Link it up here by 9/21

This month's prize for a randomly selected winner is:

Here is what I made for the challenge using the new Die..
I did a little treat card for all those summer baseball players.  I know when my son was playing hockey, we always had an end of season party and did special things to recognize the players. 

I used the new Scallop slider die for the background and then inserted a 1x8 bag filled with M&M's through the slits. It's enough to add a slight bend to the background so it stands  up by itself.  The little Play Ball baseball player is in the SVG Cutting Files store.

I hope you will join us and link up your Fun project on the Jaded Blossom Blog. Please be sure you check out the challenge rules before linking. 

While you're there, check out what the rest of the design team created. They are so extremely talented. 

Of course we have our September Stamp Spotlight which just started TODAY!

Game Night will be $10.99 all month long (while supplies last)

Have a crafty day!!

This hop was another opportunity to add another recipe to my recipe album. The Swedish chef and his chickens were perfect for my chicken recipe. 
The swedish chef and chickens are part of the free file for this hop.

I added a tag and sentiment from using the Jaded Blossom Candy Charms and Banners and the King of the BBQ stamp set.

I also added a skillet for the chicken to sit in. I cut this free hand.
I m trying to challenge myself to use some old supplies in my craft closet so pulled out the brown flocking for Chef's hair and mustache. 

Of course my page needed some more color so I added some veggies from SVG Cutting Files Kawaii veggies. 

These chickens with their purple eye shadow just crack me up!

A special Anniversary

Hello there... hope everyone has big plans for the holiday weekend. I know for me, it will be a busy one.

A wonderful Aunt and Uncle recently celebrate a big milestone wedding anniversary so of course I needed to make a card.

I used a cut file from Miss Kate's Cuttables called Orange Blossom. 
They were perfect since this couple spends time in Florida and knows all too well about orange trees. 

The sentiment is stamped on a simple oval mat using a stamp from My Creative Time. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. Be sure to stop back this weekend, I have lots of fun stuff I'm working in to share in time for the fall season!!
