Sympathy Cards

With the loss of a very humble man (my hubby's grandpa) this summer, I felt as though I needed to have some cards on hand. This is certainly not an easy occasion to craft for, but it definitely can help make someone's day a little brighter.
Yes of course it was Jaded Blossom and Trendy Twine for my needs!
Card Mat dies, Journal die, Simple Sayings 1 & 2 were used for the tree and sentiments.
Totally Black Trendy Twine was there to finish it off!

Thanks for stopping by!

Congrats Smartie!

Graduation treats made for a client, she wanted to have smarties and somewhere for cash.
this is what I came up with!
I never heard if the kids liked them, but she sure did!

And again Jaded Blossom to my rescue! Scallop circle dies, Fall Dies and the stamps came from two different sets, Teacher Appreciation (revamp), School Rules. I did mask both sentiments to come up with my own. 
And of course Trendy Twine finished it off with Midnight twine! 

Thanks for stopping by!

My Brother in law picked up my hubby's prized fish, so I needed to make him a little thank you gift. Jaded Blossom always has the best stamps & awesome dies to make fast fun projects! I used Jaded Blossom's treat tag die, along with Fish-On stamp set. It was tied together with Trendy Twine's Midnight Twine!

Here is my hubby's prized Pike :)

Thankful for you

Our thankful season begins and as much as I would love to think it happens everyday, often being thankful isn't part of everyone's everyday.

I used a lot of Jaded Blossom on my card - Card Mat dies, Scallop Circle dies and Fall dies along with a Thanksgiving Wishes sentiment
For my touches of twine, I used Totally Chocolate along with Spiced Pumpkin from Trendy Twine!

The little girl is a stamp from Jaded Blossom Smell the Flowers, colored with my SN markers.

On my list of to do was a birthday card. I wanted to be inspired  by something... I looked over at my washi tape and thought it has been a while since I used it, so I then looked at my twine and thought 'ah yes, Disney inspiration' without any actual Disney on my card!

I used washi tape on my background paper and then cut it out using Jaded Blossom's Card Mat Die.
I stamped one of the stamps from Birthday Treat Tags on the Luggage Tag Die and adhered it on to the front. I made a little pompom/firework out of Celebration Twine and used glossy accents to get it stuck!

Thanks for stoppin by!
