Spellbinders Kit of the Month with die addon


Welcome to 2023 and a redesign to the Spellbinders Kit of the Month January. It's still filled with everything you need but a bit different.  Check out the link above to learn more. 

I used so much of the ephemera to make my designs. The 6x6 prints and the A2 sized cardstock were perfect for on the go cardmaking.   The only thing that I added to my cards that was not in the kit was some of my Spellbinders Mirror Gold cardstock

Here are the two cards I used the The Happy Plant Die add on set.  Again using supplies from the kits.  Enjoy

Spellbinders - Floral Reflection

Hello and welcome!

Today's blog is featuring the gorgeous Spellbinders Floral Refection, Essential Floral Reflection Dies, Glimmering Just For You Hot Foil Plate, and Glimmer Essential Solid Floral Reflection Hot Foil Plate. 

To start I made three A2 cards and one 5x7 card, I love being able to create in any size using the Spellbinders family of products.   So for my first card I have a A2 with a four layer card. Using the Glimmer Essential Solid Floral Reflection Hot Foil Plate and the Essential Floral Reflection Etched Dies Along with a bit of Starburst Foil I created a fun everyday card. I also included the Holly Flourish Embossing Folder and Scarlet Smooth Disc for a finish touch. The Sentiment is from Glimmering Just For You. 

I made a clear shaker card with the Glimmering Just For You Hot Foil Plates.  Using Matte Gold Foil and lots of Scarlet Smooth and Peppermint Sprinkles. As for the the shaker, its packing plastic, with 1/2 lines etched into them for an additional touch. 

For my 5x7 card I used the Floral Refection Essential Etched Dies and lots of cardstock in various colors, all from Spellbinders. In a mix of blue, green and silver foil.  The sentiment is from the Essential Sentiments.  I cut 9 of each color of the 3 smallest sizes and mapped out the best way to lay out the card. 

My last card Features the Glimmering Just For You Hot Foil Plates in Matte Gold Foil. With a Terra Cotta  cardstock for the fall colors we are seeing everywhere.  Again I added 1/2 Embossed lines on the cardstock to add a finishing touch.

I chose a gorgeous stamp set with the traditional Altenew layering style. The Beautiful Day Layering stamp and die set are perfect for most any card.  The secret recipe that I try to use with each card is to layer with 1 main image and 3 separate coordinating pieces, greenery is always first, then the sentiment and finally the embellishments.   It always brings my cards to life.  I hope you enjoy the hop and my card.

Freshly Made Sketches #555

 Hello and welcome

I am loving this sketch by Narelle over at Freshly Made Sketches!  
Click the image below to join this weeks challenge! 
Starting with Photo Play - Say It With Stamps Mittens die set, along with the matching stencil. I used the mitten stencil along with various inks to create a old worn looking pair.   Also I used the Autumn Word Trio, in white cardstock and the warm hugs always gets me. Its an incredible sentiment die set.  For the circle area, I used a large circle from my stash and the Border dies in layers to create texture. I finished it with some gems!
