Jaded Blossom's Challenge :: Smartie Pants Treat

It's time for Jaded Blossom's September Challenge!

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

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

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!!


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 at Jaded Blossom by 9/21

Prize:

Here is what I made for the challenge using the new Die..
A Smartie Pants Treat!

I cut the base with my Cuttlebug and moved the "slider" part to cut the slits for the candy to fit through.  The Jaded Blossom Card Mat Dies are layered for the sentiment from Science Matters.

A Toast from Alice

Hello Everyone! Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorites...  
I can't believe it has taken me so long to color up this cutie.

I thought since Alice is known for drinking/eating, the sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Let's Toast would be appropriate.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my card. :)

Lovin' from the Oven

Hello! Today I have a sneak peek of a new file that will be available at SVG Cutting Files this Friday. This is the "Baker Boy" file. I placed him on the Arched Card Base. The mustache is a stamp from Jaded Blossom... so I guess he is more of a "Baker Man".

Hello Everyone! Welcome to Day 4 of Jaded Blossom's August Stamp Release. Today we are showcasing "Soda-Lightful".  SVG Cutting Files created this adorable Classic Soda Box. I decorated the box to look like my delicious beverage of choice, Diet Coke.
