Guest Designer Christine!

Hi everyone and Merry Christmas Eve to all of you who celebrate.  Christine here.. I'm so excited for Christmas tomorrow.  My two year old is going to be beside himself I think :)  I just can't wait, he's finally beginning to understand Christmas and I think tomorrow is going to be awesome :)  Today is an exciting day for me in the crafting world.  As you know, I mostly showcase copic markers and rubber or digi stamp projects on my blog.  However, I got my start in crafting working with my Cricut and Silhouette machines and I still pull them out from time to time (I wish I had even more time to work with them, they are so much fun).  Today, I get to be a guest designer today for Jaded Blossom Stamps.  If I had unlimited funds, I would truly purchase every stamp set and every die cut they make, that's for sure! :) Unfortunately, I don't have unlimited funds, but I have been able to take advantage of some sales and have purchased some adorable candy stamps.  Here's my project:




For my project, I made this adorable castle treat box.  I made the actual treat box myself.  I cut the castle out using the Once Upon a Pricess Cricut Cartridge.  I then stamped a mixture of Royal Candies and Villain Candies (the Villain Candies are on clearance for $6 so go scoop them up!).  These are SO fun and so easy to do.  Just stamp them onto your cardstock, punch them out with a 3/4" punch, and then adhere them to the base of your Hershey Kiss candy using either Glue Dots or Scor Tape or some other adhesive of your choice.  It's really that simple and it really spruces up a homemade treat :)  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed my project  and make sure to check out Jaded Blossom Stamps, they are fabulous! :)  Hugs!
