paisley card, featuring Spellbinders June 2022 Glimmer of the Month

Hello friends! Today I’m sharing another paisley card that I made using the June 2022 Glimmer Hot Foil of the Month (GOM), called Paisley Glimmer. The kit comes with 4 hot foil plates, 5 cutting dies, and gold foil roll.

Again, I’m sticking to the same color palette that I’ve used for this month’s Spellbinders club kits. I started by hot foiling the large paisley hot foil plate, and the “with gratitude” sentiment on craft cardstock using my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Machine and copper foil. I used my Platinum 6 die cutting machine and the coordinating die to diecut the sentiment. Then I trimmed the paisley panel using on of the dies from the A2 layering bundle. I adhered the panel to an A2 white card base with foam tape. I also adhered the sentiment with more foam tape.

I diecut some florals from this month’s Large Die of the Month kit (LDOM), and adhered them to the panel around the sentiment. I finished off the card with some gold gems.

I hope you got some inspiration from my card today. Make sure to head over to the Spellbinders site to check out this month’s club kits, along with more crafting goodies.

floral card, featuring Spellbinders June 2022 Embossing Folder of the Month

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing a card I made using the Spellbinders June 2022 Embossing Folder of the Month called Botanical Diamond. I am also using some pieces from this month’s Large Die of the Month kit (LDOM) as well.

I am sticking to the same color palette for this month’s club kits.

First, I ink blended a piece of white cardstock. I used Distress Inks in Kitsch Flamingo and Worn Lipstick. I used my Platinum 6 die cutting machine and one of the A2 layering bundle dies to trim the panel, then I ran it through the die cutting machine with the embossing folder. I adhered it to a white A2 card base with foam tape.

For my sentiment, I diecut the “hello” from the LDOM kit with brown glitter cardstock. I diecut it 2 more times from white cardstock, and glued them stacked together. I glued it towards the bottom third of my panel. To embellish the card, I diecut some of the florals from the LDOM. I used one of the pinks and the sage green from my previous card, and I added some white. I adhered the flowers to my card, and finished them off with some gold gems.

I hope you like my card today, and I hope you’ll stop by the Spellbinders site to check out this month’s kits.

Paisley card, featuring Spellbinders June 2022 Large Die of the Month

Hello there friends! Today I’m sharing a card that I made using Spellbinders’ June 2022 Large Die of the Month kit (LDOM) called Paisley Dreams. This kit comes with 17 cutting dies. 

Since there are a lot of detail pieces that would cover the entire panel, I decided to use a very toned down, neutral color palette for my project. I used my Platinum 6 die cutting machine to diecut the 2 larger paisley pieces, as well as the sentiment strip from craft cardstock. I cut the details, like the flower, greenery and paisley from 3 different colors of pink, and sage green cardstock. I glued all the details pieces on the 2 large paisley pieces, and then I added foam squares to the back.

I hot foiled the “I Believe In You” sentiment from the Mini Sincere Sentiments set using my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Machine and copper foil onto the little sentiment diecut piece. I added a piece of thin foam strip to the back.

For the background panel, I used the A2 layering bundle to diecut another piece of craft cardstock. I adhered it to a white A2 card base. with foam tape. Then I adhered the sentiment strip in the middle, and the 2 large paisley pieces on the top and bottom. To finish off the card, I used some gold gems.

I hope you got some inspiration from my card today. Make sure to head over to the Spellbinders site to check out this month’s club kits.

2 cards, featuring Spellbinders Add To Cart Too collection

Hello friends. Today, I’m sharing 2 fun, dimensional shopping cards, featuring spellbinders Add to Cart Too collection.

How fun are these cards?! The shopping carts were inspired by my favorite place to shop…can you guess where?

For both cards, I started out using my Platinum 6 die cutting machine to diecut all the pieces. I love the cardstock from Spellbinders…they are a nice thickness for these tiny pieces. I have a divided organizing tray to keep all the pieces separate and contained. I diecut all the 3D right facing cart pieces the same for both cards. I assembled the cart with the 3D option.

For my first card, I used the Plant it Here dies along with the shopping cart.

I gathered the diecut pieces, and quickly arranged them to get an idea of the card. I added some ink blending to some of the pieces for more interest, then glued the individual pieces together.

For my background, I wanted to keep it simple, so I added a little bit of blue ink blending to a white piece of cardstock. I used a rectangle die from the A2 layering bundle to trim the panel. I glued on the shopping art first, then I adhered the 2 potted plants, and the boots. Next, I adhered the items inside of the cart, the flamingo, watering can, and floral stems.

To finish off my card, I added a foiled sentiment. Using my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Machine, and aura foil on black cardstock, I foiled the “hello you” sentiment from the Mini Sincere Sentiments set, and used the die to cut it out. I also adhered some gold gems.

For my second card, I used the Shopping Run dies along with the shopping cart.

Again, like the first card, I gathered all the pieces. I added some ink blending to a couple of the pieces, and then assembled the pieces together to make a pink purse, a gallon of milk, a french baguette, a blue throw pillow, and a potted plant.

I kept the background simple. I used the fluted rectangle dies to create a background panel. I glued on the shopping cart, then adhered the items in the cart. Then, I added the purse to the handle of the cart.

To finish off the sentiment, I added another of the same sentiment strips as my first card, and some more gold gems.

I love how these cards turned out! They are so fun. They are definitely very dimension, so I would have to included these in a gift bag or hand deliver. Head over to the Spellbinders site to check out these awesome dies. There are a few more items in this collection that would work great as well.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Butterfly card, featuring Spellbinders May 2022 Embossing Folder of the Month

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing a butterfly card I made using the Spellbinders May 2022 Embossing Folder of the Month called Faux Stitch. I am also using this month’s Glimmer Hot Foil of the Month (GOM), called Stitched Glimmer Butterflies.

For the the background panel, I used spun sugar, shaded lilac, and broken china distress inks to ink blend on white cardstock. I used a rectangle die from the A2 layering bundle to trim the panel, then used the Faux Stitch embossing folder to add texture to the background. I adhered the background panel to a white A2 card base with foam tape.

I used my Platinum 6 die cutting machine to diecut the pieces for the butterfly from this month’s Glimmer of the Month kit from white and pink cardstock. I assembled the butterfly, then adhered it to the background panel with a thin strip of foam tape just behind the body.

Using my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Machine, I foiled the “you give me butterflies” sentiment with Polished Brass foil. Then, I used the coordinating die to diecut it. I adhered it to the card with thin foam tape.

I wanted to keep the background and the butterfly as the focus, so I didn’t add any other embellishments. I really love how this card turned out, and I hope you do too. Make sure to head over to the Spellbinders site to check out this month’s club kits.

Butterfly card, featuring Spellbinders May 2022 Glimmer of the Month

Hello friends! Today I’m sharing a butterfly card that I made using the May 2022 Glimmer Hot Foil of the Month (GOM), called Stitched Glimmer Butterflies. The kit comes with 10 hot foil plates, 19 cutting dies, and gold foil roll.

To begin my card, I foiled the butterfly wing pieces and sentiment on smooth white cardstock using my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Machine. I used Distress inks in worn lipstick and festive berries to create an ink blended gradient. Then, I used the coordinating wing dies, and a sentiment die to diecut them out. I also ink blended a scrap piece of the white cardstock, and diecut the butterfly bodies and antennae.

Next, I diecut the large butterfly panels with white cardstock. I adhered the hot foiled wing panels to them with foam tape. Then, I glued on the ink blended antennae and bodies. I added a some gold gems to the wings for a little interest.

For the background, I ink blended some blue ink to a white cardstock panel. I used a rectangle die from the A2 layering bundle to trim the panel. I used the May 2022 Embossing Folder of the Month called Faux Stitch to add texture to the background.

I adhered the background panel to an A2 white card base with foam tape. Then, I adhered the butterflies and sentiment strip.

Hello crafty friends! Today I’m sharing 2 pretty pastel cards that I made using Spellbinders’ May 2022 Large Die of the Month kit (LDOM) called Stitched For You. This kit comes with 42 cutting dies. I also used the Spellbinders May 2022 Embossing Folder of the Month called Faux Stitch.

For my first card, began by diecutting all the pieces. I used my Platinum 6 die cutting machine to diecut the stitched “you” letters and the letter for “for” several times from aqua colored cardstock. I diecut the outline of the “you” from white cardstock.

After diecutting, I stitched on the “you” letters, then adhered them to the outline with foam tape. I also stacked and adhered the “for” letters.

For the the background, I used spun sugar and shaded lilac distress inks to ink blend on white cardstock. I used a rectangle die from the A2 layering bundle to trim the panel, then used the Faux Stitch embossing folder to add texture to the background.

I adhered the background panel to an A2 white card base. Then I adhered the “you” and “for.” To embellish, I added some silver, pink, and teal gems.

I dicta the letters for “Happy Birthday” 2 times from white cardstock and once from silver litter cardstock. I stacked and adhered the letters together. I also diecut the outline from white cardstock 3 times and stacked and adhered them together. I glued the letters on the outline.

For the the background, I used spun sugar, shaded lilac, and broken china distress inks to ink blend on white cardstock. Again, I used a rectangle die from the A2 layering bundle to trim the panel, then used the Faux Stitch embossing folder to add texture to the background. I adhered the background to an A2 white cardbase with foam tape. I adhered the “happy” and “birthday” to the center of the card. To finish off the card, I added some silver, pink, and teal gems.

3 cards: Concord & 9th Feature Friday

Hello friends! I’m back with my last 3 cards for Concord & 9th Feature Friday. I have loved working with these products, and being a guest for Concord & 9th. I have especially been loving their ink cube bundle!

For my first card, I used the Just Saying dies.

I started by die cutting the “here for you” sentiment 4 times from honeysuckle cardstock. I also cut the shadow 3 times from sea glass cardstock. I glued them stacked together for a bold sentiment.

Next, I worked on a background panel. I used the small floral stamps in the Hello Wishes stamp set to stamp the floral background. I mounted each little stamp to a separate acrylic block, then stamped in a random pattern on white cardstock. For the florals, I used ballet slipper ink, honeysuckle ink, poppy ink, grapefruit ink, and buttercup ink. For the greenery, I used sea glass ink and clover ink. After I filled a panel with florals, I trimmed it so it would be smaller than an A2 card. I made an A2 card base using honeysuckle cardstock. I adhered the floral panel with foam tape, then glued the diecut sentiment piece on top. I wanted to add a sentiment strip, so I stamped the “just a note to say” sentiment from the same Hello Wishes stamp set with Versamark ink on black cardstock, then heat set with white embossing powder. I trimmed the sentiment, and added it with foam tape about the diecut sentiment.

For my next card, I used the Sew Lovely bundle.

I diecut a stitched rectangle from ballet slipper cardstock. Then I sketched a circle on the cardstock with a pencil. I stamped the “you’re sew lovely” sentiment from the Sew Lovely stamp set with Versamark ink, then heat set with gold embossing powder. I also stamped the “handmade with love” circle with Versamark ink on midnight cardstock, heat seat with white embossing powder, and diecut with the coordinating tag. I also diecut a lot of the little sewing accessories from the Sew Lovely dies. I wanted to arrange them on the penciled in circle, but it ended up being concentrated more to the top left and bottom right. I used the cross stitched stamp to fill in some of the negative space on top.

For my last project, I used the Rain or Shine bundle to make a slimline card.

I stamped the “oh hello” sentiment umbrella from the Rain or Shine stamp set with grapefruit ink and sorbet ink. I used the coordinating die to diecut the sentiment. I also used some of the dies from the Rain or Shine die set to create 2 more umbrellas. I used one of the Garden Party pattern papers, as well as white and grapefruit cardstock. I used dove and black cardstock to create the umbrella handles.

For the background, I trimmed a piece of oceanside cardstock to about 3 1/4 x 8 1/4 in. I stamped the “hope you’re doing well” sentiment towards the bottom with black ink. I also used the rain drop stamps and white pigment ink to add a subtle background. I adhered the umbrellas with foam tape. To finish off my card, I added clear sequins.

I loved working with these projects. I hope you liked my Friday Feature projects. Head over to the Concord & 9th website to check out the Love You Sew release.

3 cards, Feature Friday: Concord & 9th

Hello friends, welcome to another Feature Friday with Concord & 9th. Today, I will be sharing 2 cards.

For my first card, I will be using the Umbrella Turnabout

I started by using the turnabout stamp, the jig, and my Misti. For my ink colors, I used ballet slipper, buttercup, aqua sky, and sea glass. I double stamped each time, so the ink looks a little darker. I trimmed the stamped panel to slightly smaller than A2 sized, then adhered it to a white card base with foam tape.

I stamped the “oh hello” umbrella sentiment from the Rain or Shine stamp set. I stamped it using honeysuckle ink. I also double stamped this. I diecut the sentiment with the coordinating Rain or Shine dies to diecut the sentiment umbrella. I also diecut the handle and pom trim using the dies. I trimmed a piece of vellum, and stamped the “I’ll be there for you” sentiment from the Rain or Shine stamp set with stazon ink. I adhered the stamped umbrella with thin foam tape. Then I added some glue behind the umbrella on the vellum ( so the glue doesn’t show from the front) and adhered it to the turnabout stamped panel. To finish off the card, I diecut a few rain drops, and added a little bit of ink blending using aqua sky ink. I glued them to the card, then added Nuvo clear glitter drops on top.

For my second card, I made a circle card using the Hello Wishes Bundle.

I used the Hello Wishes stamp set to stamp the floral background. I love that this stamp set comes in 2 separate pieces so you can stamp the florals in one color and the leaves in another. I used buttercup ink and sprout ink. I double stamped using my Misti. I decided to stamp the sentiment directly on top of the stamped floral using black ink. I used one of my nesting circle dies to die cut the stamped piece. I used a bigger circle die to diecut a circle from buttercup cardstock. I diecut 2 larger circles from white cardstock. I created a hinge on the back circle, and adhered the 2 circles together with strong double sided tape to create a circle card base. I used foam tape to adhere the stamped piece to the card base.

To embellish my card, I added some florals that I die cut from the Hello Wishes die set from white, buttercup, and clover cardstock. I used some Nuvo glitter drops in the center of the small flowers.

I made another card using the Hello Wishes Bundle set as well as the Garden Party pattern paper.

I used the solid square from the Pinwheel Quilt Top die set to die cut a square from 4 of the pattern papers. I arranged the squares on a white cardstock panel that I trimmed to slightly smaller than A2. Before adhering the squares, I stamped the “hope you’re doing well” sentiment using black ink. The, I adhered the pattern paper squares with thin foam tape. I stamped the large “Hey Hi Hello” sentiment on Sorbet cardstock with Versamark ink, then heat set with white embossing powder. I used the coordinating die to diecut the sentiment. I used foam tape to pop up the sentiment on top of the pattern paper squares.

I wanted to embellish the card a little bit, but since the pattern paper is busy already, I just diecut the smallest flowers from the die set in white and stardust cardstock. To finish the card, I added a few drops of Nuvo glitter drops.

I love how these cards turned out, and I hope you do too! Stay tuned for one more Feature Friday.

Thank you for stopping by, and have a great day!
