Jaded Blossom: Octagon Critter Release!

Happy Wednesday friends! We have a special small Octagon Critter themed release going on over at Jaded Blossom!

I made several items with this new release! First up, I created two Octagon Boxes. I combined the Critter Add On with the Halloween Add Ons to create a seal and a walrus! To create the box, you will need to purchase the Octagon Box Die also. The sentiment strips were created in MS Word. I will be gluing those to the back of the box, but I added them to the top so you could see the pun for each one.

 My next set of cards feature the new Large Glasses Dies! For the first card I layered 6 die cut frame pieces to create depth. I glued vellum in between the first and second layers of the glasses frame to make them foggy. The little pink hearts were cut out using a die from the Gnome Dies: Valentine Add Ons. The awesome sentiment is from Kawaii Sentiments 2.

To create this next card, I used a free online Eye Chart Maker. You type in your text and then the site will create a PDF to download. Once I downloaded it, I did copy and paste certain sections into MS Word so I could add additional space between the SPEC and TACULA for the eye glasses to fit. I cut the die from gold cardstock and then glued additional layers cut from black cardstock behind the gold to create more depth.

For my last card, I cut multiple layers of the cat-eye glasses from purple cardstock and glued them together to again create dimension. The I covered the top layer with Wink of Stella glitter and added jewels. I cut two of the black frames and then glued them to some cardstock from the Jaded Blossom Celebration 6x6 Paper Pad. The sentiment strip was cut out from a piece of paper in the Doodlebug Design Fairy Garden 6x6 Paper Pad.

All three new items are available for individual purchase or you can save by purchasing the entire bundle!

Our entire design team has been hard at work with projects to share with you! 

Check them all out here and make sure to give some love to our new design team member CYNTHIA! We are so excited to have her join us.

Love how you combine add-on die sets to come up with more critters!
I also liked that you added vellum to the glasses to design cute cards!
