Beary Sweet Shaped Cards

Hello Everyone! Today I have a sneak peek of a new file set from SVG Cutting Files.  These Beary Sweet Fall Cupcakes will be at the store this Friday. I made these cuties into shaped cards... their faces are the sweetest!

To make the shaped card, I used the offset feature on my Silhouette Designers Edition. The card base is the basic bear cupcake.  A top layer that matches the shape of each bear is on the front of the card.

The sentiments and Dies are from Jaded Blossom.

Gummy Bear Treat

Hello! I am posting this easy to make treat over at Jaded Blossom's Blog today. The container and wooden scoop are from Jaded Blossom. The wooden scoop has a metal loop "screw eye" from the hardware store that you can hand screw into the handel. I picked up a package of 10 for around a dollar at Home Depot.  I like to tie the scoop to the treat as I am the type of person that will lose things quickly. To go along with the gummy bear theme, Mr. Gummy Bear is NEW from SVG Cutting Files and will be at their store this Friday! The bear is from "Beary Sweet" collection. 

Jaded Blossom
Sentiment- Kind Thanks

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope to see you tomorrow for the Animated Hop!

Spider Trick or Treat!

Hello Everyone! Today is my post over at Jaded Blossom and I would share on my blog too.   I found these gummy spiders and slid them in a favor bag from Jaded Blossom.  The top of the bag is the NEW topper Die, Scallop Slider and Topper Die. 

Here is a close up of the topper. The spider print from the Halloween Candy Wraps is layered behind the spider.. just to add a little more to the spider theme. The web is from the Halloween Dies.  This web cuts so beautifully!  The sentiment, included on Halloween Candy Wraps, is stamped on a banner from Mini Tag Dies 2.
