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.

 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!

Hello and welcome back!

Today I've got the Spellbinders Monthly Club - Fall Gnomes Clear Stamp and Die set, for the newest sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches by Karren. 

I made this card live on Facebook just for the challenge. I love the little gnomes so freakin much! I colored them with Prismacolor pencils, which I haven't done forever. I hope you enjoy today's card. Due to the change in the weather, my arthritis has been on overload and it very painful to do right now.  As Queen lyrics say " Show must go on" and I'm no quitter!  I hope you like today card and again if you want to see me make it, check out my Facebook.

Concord & 9th - Poinsettia Quilt Top

 Hello and welcome! 

Today's card was made during my FB live yesterday. 

I'm using the Poinsettia Quilt Top Die set from Concordand9th.com . I started by cutting out the quilt die, then the pieces for the quilt.  I used various colors of my cardstock from C9. When I went live, I put the die together, then the sentiment.  I had been looking at the shape of the quilt and decided to do a side flip card.  So the Poinsettia Quilt layer opens, to see the sentiment under it. I also added a second layer of the quilt die base under it to hide the hinge and prints from the Be Merry Patterned Paper to cover the other side of the hinge. The base card is still open for a personal message.  Below are additional photos of how today's card looks when it opens to each layer. 

Open to the sentiment and the backside of the Poinsettia Quilt die.

A standing look at the different layers including part of the sentiment.

The silver confetti is actually a part of the same die set, its a berry die.  I chose colors from my collection of cardstock, that I thought looked fabulous together. Its a simple card with lots of love n joy!
