Scaredy Cat AND Flag Die Tips!

Hello everyone! Today is my day to post for the Jaded Blossom Design Team and I am excited to share a cute Halloween card and a quick tip when using the Jaded Blossom Dies.

So lets start with what I used!


Here is the cute card I made:
I cut the cat from the Silhoutte Store, used DCVW paper for the background, used Trendy Twine Grape Licorice for the bow, and Martha Stewart drippy goo punch for the well...drippy purple paper!
I use the Jaded Blossom Dies a lot! In case you have never used them, I wanted to show you how quick and easy it is to get a perfect cut everytime!
Here are the supplies I use:
Plates A B C

Place your FLAG DIE on the paper you would like to use. I used the Scalloped die from FLAG DIE 2 for the purple, the smaller die from FLAG DIE for the pattern grey paper, and the small die from FLAG DIE 2
And here is my tip for the day. It doesn't seem like much but if you have ever struggled with getting your dies to stay put on the plates it is a sure fix.
I place a piece of scotch tape over my die onto the paper and the plate to hold them still. Easy fix :0) Oh and if you notice I have written a little number on the back of my dies also..the number is which FLAG DIE set the dies came from! (helps me remember so I can tell you correctly!)
Layer your plates A B (with the paper and dies taped down) C

Crank them through your Cuttlebug...

And now you have 3 perfectly cut flags! (this picture is the back of the dies)
And they layer perfect!!!

I hope you enjoyed my post today! Thank you for stopping by! Please leave a comment--I love love love to hear from you! :0)

If The Shoe Fits....

Happy Wednesday!!
I am happy that is it my day to post for the Jaded Blossom Design Team!
I love being a JB DT member! These stamps are AMAZING! I love creating with them!

Here is the card I created today!

I used the new BEST WITCHES stamp set for the sentiment.
The witch legs were cut from the Silhouette Store.
I used the new Flag Die 2 Scalloped Edge.
and the FLAG Die for the inside flag.
I hope you enjoyed my project today!
But wait!! There's more!!
Today is National Video Game Day!! Which is totally crazy because it is also my oldest nephew's birthday and I swear he was born with a Gameboy (he is old--hahah!) in his hand! SO I made him this fun controller birthday card!

On the inside is a HAPPY BIRTHDAY stamp from Jaded Blossom.

Hocus Pocus...Smell my Feet!

I was inspired by a Pinterest post to make these adorable witch shoes!
After alot (and I mean ALOT) of help from my design team sisters I was able to make these happen...So thank you Michelle for the cuts and Kim for the inspiration (or should I say Pinspiration)!

Here are the details:

The witch shoes were cut from Princess Party Cricut Cartridge (5 1/2)
I closed the toe of the shoe with a circle punch. Just folded it around the open part of the toe.
Made the little rosettes from Echo Park paper - Chillingsworth Manor
Added a little 3 Girl Jam Crinkle Ribbon HARVEST BUNDLE to the toe of the shoes and the tops of the oreo "tights"
I used HALLOWEEN CANDIES on the rosettes...LOVE these!

Jaded Blossom Sneak Peek Thursday!

Happy day before the release! :0)
Today are the last 2 stamps sets!

How fun is this set!? I love this turkey! :0)

This set is a Petal set.
For my project today I uses HAPPY OWL-OWEEN petal set! I made this cover for the BIG size tic-tacs (I just winged it..sorry) and then punched a hole on the side and used 3 Girl Jam crinkle ribbon to add a little detail.
I punched a 3/4 hole (same size used for the kiss stamps!) right smack in the middle of this pumpkin so you could see the tic-tacs! This was a fun project to make!
Thank you so much for joing me this week. I hope you loved the sneaks! See you tomorrow for the RELEASE HOP!
