Guest Designer Sherrie

Hello Everyone!  
This is Sherrie from Sherrie Scraps with Passion and I'm today's Jaded Blossoms December Guest Designer. Thanks so much Michelle and Candace for having me!!!! I am super excited to share a cute little New Years gift idea with you using some amazing Jaded Blossoms dies and stamps. 
Here is what I created:
The fun little box is the super cute Gable Box Die. I decorated it with fun wine bottles and sentiments using Jaded Blossoms Bubbly Stamp Set.  I filled it with a small bottle of whiskey and some yummy chocolates. The tag is created with the Treat Tag Die and the background is stamped with the
Holiday Treat Tags stamp set. I tied on some yummy crinkle ribbon from my stash.
The card base and layer is created with the Scallop Square Dies. I followed with the Stitched Square Dies and then the matching tag like on the gable box. The wine bottle again is from the Bubbly Stamp Set stamped and fussy cut out.

I hope you all have a Happy New Year! Thanks again Candace and Michelle for having me!

Guest Designer Larelyn!

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's Larelyn from Handmade From My Heart
 I was thrilled to be asked to be a Jaded Blossom guest designer today. 
 I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.
 Santa has always left blank Thank You notes in my daughters' stockings.  Since they were little, we felt it was important that the first thing they did after Christmas was to write notes to the people who remembered them with gifts.  This tradition has carried into their adult lives as well.
I designed two Thank You cards to share with you today.
I used Card Layer Dies 1, Border Dies, and Supersized Thank You for this card.
Along with Card Layer Dies 1, I used Card Mat Dies, Word Dies, and Cardinal Kisses.
I added twine and Doodlebug Designs Sprinkles to both cards.  The patterned papers are from Authentique.  I colored with Copics and added some Frosted Lace Stickles for the snow.
Thanks so much  Michelle and Candace for allowing me to share with you today.
I hope you all have a wonderful New Year!!!

Guest Designer Nicole

Hi there!!  Nicole here from "teachdanz" 

I am so excited to be a guest designer on the Jaded Blossom Blog today! 

 I have a Christmas project to share with you but the beauty of this project is that it can be used for all sorts of different occasions!  I just happened to use this as a way to give a Christmas gift to my daughter's piano teacher.

This is a "double diagonal pocket card" and you can find the tutorial to make one of these yourself HERE.  There are two different options to this card and I chose the variation that opens up to have room on the inside to write a message.

I used several Jaded Blossom products on my card - 
coffee cup - Coffee Dies 
sentiments - Happy Brew Year

In one pocket I stuck a tag and in the back pocket I put a Starbucks gift card. 

 My daughter was able to write a message to her teacher on the inside.  I embellished with some snowflake ephemera, ribbon, jingle bells and Nuvo drops.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Guest Designer Kelli!

Hey y’all! It’s Kelli here, from Cool’s Cards! I’m taking over the Jaded Blossom Blog today and I couldn’t be more excited! I wanted to share this cute little tag I made using the Holly Jolly Christmas Stamp set and Luggage Tag dies.

Every year I leave a small little present on my surrounding neighbors’ doorsteps just to wish them a Merry Christmas. This year I got some cute little buckets and filled them with candy. This sweet little sentiment went perfectly with what I had in mind!

I colored the Santa with Copics and fussy cut him. Adhered him onto the tag cut-outs with foam tape and it turned out just too cute!

Thanks for swinging by and Merry Christmas!

Guest Designer Katie!

Hello Jaded Blossom fans.  Katie here from 2CraftyKaties as Guest Designer for the day.  Thank you, Candace and Michelle, for this opportunity to share my project!

Here it is – a desk calendar!  Originally this was only going to be a year calendar and then it would need to be remade.  Most of the time I share my crafting projects with my husband and he suggested making the calendar part removable, so it could be reused!  The man is brilliant!  There is an enormous amount of worth that initially goes into the calendar, however, here on out the monthly insert is the only thing that needs to be updated. Enjoy!

Guest Designer Tanya!

EEEKKKKK! Tanya from Crafting on Caffeine here to take over the Jaded Blossom Blog!  I'm breaking away from Christmas to bring you Thank you cards for all those presents.

I started with one of my most favorite dies ever!!! Card Layer dies 1 and Card Layer dies 2.
4 sheets of 6x6 paper
I just ran then through and then started combining to create 9 different cards.

I used Jaded Blossom's Supersized Thank You stamp set for all of these. I love the wide variety and the size. It's perfect for cards!

I hope you enjoyed this post I sure enjoyed creating and having the chance to show on the Jaded Blossom blog!
Have a great day!

Guest Designer Nancy!

Hi Everyone!
It's Nancy from kandykrazee!
I'm thrilled to be Jaded Blossom's December Guest Designer for the day!
I made this fun little Christmas Tree and decorated it with
Jaded Blossom stamps and dies.

I used the Christmas Banner Dies to cut out the lights and wrapped it around the tree,
 then I cut some gingerbread men, ornaments and holly to decorate the tree.

For the sign on the tree, I used Fall Dies and the sentiment is from the Merry & Bright
 stamp set.  For the star, I cut out a couple of snowflakes from the Winter Dies in yellow, layered them and added some bling and attached it to the top of the tree.

For the inside of the tree I used a sentiment from Bah Humbug 2 stamp set, 
Rectangle Dies and a candy cane from the Christmas Dies.

List of Jaded Blossom products used

I hope you enjoyed my project!
Thank you, Candace and Michelle for inviting me to be a 
December Guest Designer.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Guest Designer Marlene!

Hello Jaded Blossom Fans!
This is Marlene from ScrappinCookie and I'm today's Jaded Blossom December 2017 Guest Designer. I'm so excited to be here today sharing my project with you all today. For about two years, I've been waiting to create an Advent Calendar for my boys and finally this year with the help of my Jaded Blossom products I was able to put one together.

I made 24 Matchbox Style boxes and layered them with my Jaded Blossom Rectangle Dies 2. Each box is embellished with a Jaded Blossom Die, Stamp, or Both. To add the dates to each of my boxes, I used the Jaded Blossom Alphabet Dies and Alphabet Dies 2.

Today's box - Dec 14 - is dressed up with the Jaded Blossom Gingerbread Wishes Set. The Gingerbread Man was die-cut from Kraft Cardstock and embossed with White Powder. I added the sentiment to a die from the Mini Tag Dies 2. When the kids get home from school we will be baking and decorating some Gingerbread Man Cookies. Yum!

Not only did I use MOST of my Jaded Blossom Christmas Stamps, but I also pulled out my Bunny Mail Stamp Set and combined it with the Christmas Candies (revamped) and Christmas Signs to create an envelope for my December 9th Box. We wrote letters to Santa that day!

I hope my Christmas Advent Calendar has inspired you to create your own calendar.

For more details on my Christmas Advent Calendar, please visit my blog - ScrappinCookie.

Here is a FULL List of ALL the Jaded Blossom Products I used.

Flag Dies
Large Snowflake Die

Guest Designer Von Marie!

Hi my crafty friends! This is Von Marie from @vonmariedesign. I'm so excited to be back and Guest Designing for Jaded Blossom. Today, I have some fun Peppermint Treats to share with you. Here is what I made:

 I first started out wanting a gift tag for this Philosophy Peppermint Bark gift box. I used the Treat Tag Die, Peppermint Candy Die, and the Mini Tags Die. I stamped and embossed the sentiment and peppermint images from the Peppermint Season stamp set. I used copic markers, red stickles, pattern paper, and Nuvo drops to help me complete my tag. I made a matching card and treat topper trying to achieve the same look that I followed from my pattern peppermint paper. I used the same stamp set, along with Card Mat Dies, Scallop Rectangles 2, Christmas Banner Dies, and Ric Rac Topper Die. I used some fun distress oxide inks, ribbon , and that was it to complete my projects. It was really easy and fun to make. Here are some more pictures: DSC_0057



 I hope you enjoyed what I created! I hope you all have a very Merry Holiday Season!! Thank you to Candace and Michelle. Big Hugs!! ~Von Marie~
