Spellbinders: Truly Yours

Hi everyone!

I am back today with couple cards using the May Truly Yours collection from Spellbinders.
I created slimline and a square card.
For the slimline card I stared with a piece of Silver Fox card stock cut to 3 1/4"x 8 1/4". I hot foiled the confetti background on both sides using matte silver foil. I die cut each swan from the Heart Swans set using thick white card stock two times. I also die cut the beak and the eye part from orange and black card stock. Next I die cut the wings also from Silver Mirror card stock. I layered the die cuts and assembled the swans. Next I die cut the flowers and leaves from Silver Mirror, Peony and Rainforest card stock, assembled the flowers. Adhered the swans and flowers to the panel. 
Stamp the sentiment and trim to size. Assemble the card.

For my second card I did pretty much the same thing, but die cut the swans from black card stock instead of white and used only one. Once the swan and flowers were assembled I foiled the Essential Glimmer Classic Labels using Matte Silver foil onto white card stock and die cut using the coordinating die from the Essential Classic Labels Dies. Next I adhered the elements. Stamped sentiment and. trimmed to size. Adhered to the label. Cut 4 1/8" x 4 1/8" piece of Silver Fox card stock and foiled the Celestial Star Background using Matte Silver foil. Assembled the card :)

Spellbinders: Sweet Cardlets

Hi everyone! 
Today I am sharing couple cards using the new collection from Becca Feeken called Sweet Cardlets. For my cards I used the A Little Birdie Hot glimmer foil set and the Hemstitched Slimline die set.
For my first card I foiled the imaged and die cut using Blush hot glimmer foil from white card stock and the sentiment from Lagoon card stock. I colored the images using Copic markers and assembled the card.
Next I foiled five birds in different color card stock using matte gold foil to create a rainbow and die cut them. I also foiled the sentiments and cut to strips. I die cut a white slimline panel and then the stitched part using the dies. Adhered the birds and the sentiment then adhered to Cosmic Sky slimline card base.

Hero Arts: Looking Glass Night and Day two ways


Hi everyone!I hope you are excited about the Summer Catalog as much as I am. I am so excited about the new selection of Looking Glass Dies and today I decided to use the Looking Glass Day or Night set and show you how changing the colors you use will change the look of your card. 

For my first card I used Nautical cardstock combined with gold, while for the second one I used Amethyst combined with Dove White and white sparkle cardstock.

To make the first card die cut the night sky die from Nautical cardstock. You can pick a larger piece of cardstock and you can trim it when assembling the card. Using the Square Infinity Dies, die cut a square frame using gold glitter cardstock. Also die cut a square that you will adhere on the back of the night sky. 

Next die cut one of the Rounded Rectangle Infinity Dies from Nautical cardstock and create a frame using one of the Square Infinity Dies (the larger one you used to create the gold glitter frame). Stamp Cursive Happy Birthday using Clear Embossing and Watermark Ink and emboss in gold. Assemble the elements. 

Cut a piece of Nautical cardstock measuring 4" x 5 1/4" and stamp Sun Ray Bold Prints. Emboss in gold. Assemble the panel and adhere to a note card made from Nautical cardstock.

For the second card I used almost the same supplies, but instead of using the Cursive Happy Birthday I used the new Message Strips Stamp & Cut XL set.

To make the card, this time die cut the Looking Glass Day or Night starry sky from Amethyst cardstock. Die cut a frame and backing using white sparkle cardstock and the Square Infinity Dies. Apply Licorice and Purple Galaxy Reactive Ink on the night sky die cut and add extra stars using a white gel pen. Assemble the frame.

Next, cut piece of Amethyst cardstock and stamp the Sun Ray Bold Prints. Emboss using White Satin Pearl embossing powder. Ink blend Purple Galaxy and Licorice Reactive Inks on the top part. Wipe the excess ink using a soft cloth.

Stamp sentiments on Amethyst cardstock and emboss using White Detail embossing powder. Die cut them using the dies that come in the set. Assemble your card and add enamel dots for more interest.

Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you have an amazing day!

Spellbinders: May Small Die of the Month

 Hi everyone!

Happy Friday! Today I am sharing super fun card using the May Small Die of the Month Kit combined with the Clear Stamp of the Month and Mini Blooms die set from Spellbinders.

If you haven't checked the Spellbinders Monthly kits you are missing out. They are amazing value and you can skip kits. Also there are value kits where you can bundle few kits at great price/

For my card I die cut the parts of the die kit from gray, teal and white card stock. I layered two die cuts for each piece to get thicker element and adhered to 4" x 5 1/4" piece of white card stock.

Next I die cut the flowers and stamped and embossed the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to my panel and then arranged the flowers. Once done, using craft foam I adhered to panel to a top folding note card.
