Hello Lovelies and welcome back! Thanks for stopping by today! I just received my StampTember order and had to use some of the goodies right away! Today’s card is featuring the new Etched Tall Leaf Spray and the Detail Bohemian Slim Plate. Both of these are absolutely gorgeous! So let’s jump right into the details!
This was a super simple card by the way, because I used an alcohol ink panel that’s been sitting around in my stash forever! I love it when I can finally find a home for something that I’ve had a while. So the products used on the alcohol ink panel were Yupo Paper, Ranger Alcohol Ink Pearls in Deception, Sublime and Villainous along with regular alcohol ink in Lemonade and Denim. I also used the Tim Holtz Air Blower.
I adhered the rainbow leaf spray to the bohemian panel using liquid glue, but only applying glue to the stem and the base of the leaves. I decided on a sentiment strip from the SSS Reverse Encouraging Words, and trimmed that out and glued it over the leaf spray.
The panel was then adhered to a black panel using foam tape for dimension. This was then adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb.
Like I said, super simple card, but I love how it came out. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Have you gotten your StampTember order yet? What did you get, inquiring minds want to know!?! Hope you have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Crafters and welcome back! I’m so glad that you stopped by today! For today’s project, I’m featuring the Spellbinders Falling Leaves Embossing Folder, as well as, the Mini Fall Blooms die set. These tiny blooms and leaves were so much fun to work with! So, let’s just jump right into the details!
I used the Fun Stampers Journey Fall Thanks Die set to trim out the sentiment and cut it a second time from plain cardstock and adhered those together for dimension. I placed the sentiment atop the embossed panel and began adhering the leaves and sprigs around and underneath it using glue. Once all of the leaves were adhered, I glued the sentiment on top of those.
The flowers were placed around the sentiment using foam tape. I also added some Spellbinders Fashion Gold Embellishments for that added bit a bling that the card needed. The embossed panel was then adhered to a black panel before being adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb.
That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! This was a fun set to work with, but I really do love working with all of the tiny leaves and bloom sets that Spellbinders has to offer! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Crafty Lovelies and welcome back! Have you checked out the new Christmas, Holiday and Halloween goodies from LDRS Creative yet? So many cute things! Today’s card is featuring the Layered Poinsettia dies, along with a couple of the Modern Geometric Coverplates. So, let’s just get right into the details, shall we?
I began the project by die cutting all of the pieces from the Layered Poinsettia set twice from watercolor paper. I pulled out a water brush and Karin Brushmarkers. I saturated the pieces with water and dropped in the color using the markers. I added more color on the bottom poinsettia layer to get a darker color.
I adhered the two Geometric Coverplate dies together using glue and then glued them to the card base, which also happens to be Neenah 110lb. I opted for a small sentiment from the LDRS Potted Poinsettia stamp set. I stamped the sentiment on Neenah 110lb using VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder and trimmed it down.
I had to play around with the placement of the flowers, leaves and sentiment. I did decide to cut a leaf die out of mirror gold cardstock, because I thought it would tie in well with the gold sentiment. I placed foam tape on the back of the flowers and adhered those in the corners, while gluing the leaves underneath them. The sentiment was also attached using foam tape for added dimension. I had to add bling, so I opted for a few PinkFresh Studio Gold Metallic Pearls.
That finishes up this project! I love the added texture in the background from the cover plates! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you’ll stop by and check out all of the new holiday products on the LDRS website. Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Crafty Friend! I’m so glad that you stopped by today! The September kit, Together is the Best, is the cutest! There’s so many fun ephemera pieces, stickers, and beautiful cardstock and printed papers! If you’ve never tried a Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month, whatchoo waiting for? Everything you need to make at least ten cards is included in this kit! This month, I made six cards that I’d like to share with you, so let’s jump right into it!
The first card is my absolute favorite! It was a little labor intensive, but I really do love the end result! So for this first card, I began by die cutting the included Hello You die cut a bunch of times from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. I think I ended up having to cut it seventeen times to fill this black panel, which is 3.75 by 5.
Once those we all cut, I began adhering them down using liquid glue until the panel was full. I began at the top of the panel gluing down the full die cut and the portions of that row. For the next row, I off-centered the full die cut to the right and filled in with the remainders. The third row was then off-centered to the left and filled in. For the fourth row, I went back to the center, and so forth and so on. Hopefully that makes more sense while looking at the picture.
I then began die cutting the telephone pieces from pink and mirror gold cardstock, which is also included in this kit. I assembled the phone using glue and placed foam tape on the back of it. That was then adhered to the Hello You panel. That panel was glued to a panel of the same pink cardstock and then to a panel of black cardstock. Everything was then adhered to a card base, which is included in the kit, as well.
All of the next cards were created using the patterned paper, stickers, chipboard stickers and ephemera pieces. All of these pieces really make for some beautiful, quick cards!
This third card, Celebrating You, once again uses ephemera pieces with the addition of the Hemstitch Rectangles again, as well as leaves from the die set in the Spellbinders July 2021 Card Kit. Once again, all of the pieces of ephemera were adhered using a combination of glue and foam tape. I loved adding the gold leaves to tie in with the other gold details on the ephemera pieces.
My fourth card, Happy Home, uses some ephemera, chipboard stickers and these gorgeous gold stickers! I did use the Hemstitch Rectangles again for that added interest. I did adhere all of the houses with foam tape for a bit of dimension.
The fifth card, Wishing You the Happiest of Days, uses those awesome Hemstitch Rectangles again, along with some leaves from the Spellbinders Mini Blooms and Sprigs die set. Such a great set for sure! I glued the gold leaves under the ephemera pieces and used glue and foam tape on everything else. I did mount my panel on some included pink cardstock for added interest.
My sixth and final card, Grateful for You, uses the rectangles again, as well as leaves from the Spellbinders Bouquet of Flowers die set. Everything was adhered using foam tape and glue. I did reinforce the chipboard banner stickers at the top with glue, just to be sure they didn’t come off. My panel was then adhered to an included card base.
That does it for this set of cards! I hope you enjoyed them and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! I made six cards, and I still have so much stuff left over to make lots more. I encourage you to check out all of the clubs that Spellbinders has to offer! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello, Hello and welcome back! Thanks for stopping by! Yup, I’m still on a StampTember kick! There’s just so many good things in this release, it’s hard to stop! For today’s project, I’m featuring another card using the new Fine Petal Background Plate. This is such a gorgeous die when it’s cut! Let’s get into the details!
I began by cutting a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using the Fine Petal Background Plate. I did have to run this through about four times to get a really good cut, but hopefully your machine cuts better! Once the panel was cut, I zhooshed most of the petals giving them plenty of definition and dimension. I did leave some un-zhooshed at the bottom for my sentiment.
I had some blue mirror cardstock that I wanted to use, so I adhered the petal panel to a color coordinating blue cardstock using liquid glue.
I cut the SSS Hugs sentiment once from this blue mirror cardstock and twice from Neenah 110lb. I also cut the shadow twice from Neenah 110lb and glued all of those layers together.
My sentiment was then glued to the bottom of the petal panel where I left the petals un-zhoosed. Everything was then adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. Lots of dimension on this card for sure!
That finishes this one up! Super simple and quick! That’s the wonderful thing about background plates! I hope you’ll stop by and check out the entire StampTember line up! Lots of great things to choose from! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Crafty Friends! Hope you are doing well and having a fabulous day! I’m back once again with a card for the Waffle Flower September challenge, week one, which is leaves! For this project, my leaves focused on the Waffle Flower Sprigs Die set! So let’s get into the details!
Once the Big Dots panel was cut, I attached a panel of acetate using glue. Then I began the tedious task of placing foam tape on the back of the panel, so as to create a shaker card. I placed foam tape around all of the edges and in between each row of dots. I cut another panel of Neenah 110lb to use as the backer, and I poured my cute little pink shaker bits in the wells. Once I removed all of the backing from the foam tape, I carefully laid my cardstock backer atop that.
Next, I began arranging the leaves around the sentiment in rainbow order and gluing down just the bottom portion of each leaf, while tucking the next leaf underneath it, making my way around the sentiment. I thought this card could use a little addition of gold, so I chose another leaf from the WF Sprigs Die set and cut that five times from mirror gold cardstock. I adhered those around along with some PinkFresh Studio Gold Metallic Pearls. Everything was then adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb.
That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I’ll hope you hop over to the Waffle Flower Challenges and join the September challenge! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Crafty Friends and welcome back! In today’s post, I’m featuring a new stamp set from the StampTember release called, Raindrops. What a cute set this is! I’ve also made another card using the raindrops as flowers! That was super fun! So let’s get into the details!
I don’t do mixed media cards very often, but I have to say that I really enjoy the process when I do take time to do them! So, for this card, I started with a panel of watercolor paper and Ranger Crackle Paste through the SSS Falling Snow Stencil. Once the paste was dry, I pulled out the Distress Oxide inks in Hickory Smoke, Black Soot and Chipped Sapphire. I smooshed the ink on my glass work surface and spritzed it with water and smooshed my paper in it. I did only do one color at a time though.
Once I was satisfied with how the panel looked, I arranged and added the raindrops diagonally across the panel using foam tape. This panel was then adhered to a black panel using foam tape again, before being adhered to the card base, which is Neenah Classic Crest 110lb.
That finishes up this mixed media project for today! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty as well! Stop by and check out the entire StampTember release, and don’t forget about all of the amazing collaboration sets that will be released all month long! Have a wonderful day!
Hello Crafters, and welcome back! Thanks so much for stopping by! Yay for StampTember, right?! What are your favorites from the release? I can honestly say that I have too many! Who’s with me? There’s just so much to choose from! I had to order a few of the new ink pads to try them out! They are all just so yummy! For today’s project, I’m featuring the new Leaves Wreath Stencil once again with fall colors. So let’s jump right into the details!
I went ahead and worked on the sentiment using the SSS Warm Hugs die. I cut the detail die once from Gold Mirror cardstock and twice from Neenah 110lb. The shadow was then cut twice using black cardstock, and all of those were then adhered together using liquid glue.
That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you’re enjoying seeing all of the inspiration from the SSS design team! Stop by and check out the entire StampTember release, and let me know your favorites! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Crafters and welcome back! Waffle Flower has monthly challenges and I’m super excited to be co-hosting week one with my special friend Rachel! This week’s theme is Leaves, which is just perfect for the upcoming fall weather. You can head over to Waffle Flower for all the challenge details! So let’s get into my project!
For my project, I opted to use the Fall Leaves Die set, along with a couple of other Waffle Flower products. I began by cutting the solid leaf dies from watercolor paper twice. I got out a water brush and my Karin Brushmarkers to do a little bit of watercoloring on them. Very quick and simple technique of adding water to the leaves and dropping in color from the markers. Once satisfied with the colors, I set them aside to dry.
I adhered the gold leaf detail to the solid leaves using liquid glue. Now that I had the panel cut and the leaves ready to do, I needed to decided on a sentiment. The Oversized Smile Word Die fit within the space that I had to work with, so I cut it once from that same mirror gold cardstock and three more times from Neenah 110lb cardstock and glued all of those together.
I began adhering the leaves to the die cut panel using glue, creating a row at the top and the bottom. Once those were all done, I trimmed off the stems. Since I had previously put foam tape on the back of the die cut panel, I went ahead and adhered that to the card base, which is Neenah 110lb as well.
The only thing left to do was glue the sentiment in the center of the panel. I didn’t even add bling to this card! Can you believe that? I can’t, actually! I hope you enjoyed this project, and I hope you’ll join us in the challenge! Leaves is such a great theme for this month! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome friend!
Hello Lovelies! I hope you’re doing well! Thanks so much for stopping by. StampTember is always so exciting with all of the new products! What are your favorites from the release? Today’s project is featuring the Interlocking Leaves Background stamp, so let’s just get right to it!
I opted for the SSS You’re the Best die. I cut it twice from black cardstock and once from Mirror Gold cardstock. I removed the letters for “the best” on one of the black die cuts, and inlaid the gold letters in their place using liquid glue. I adhered the rest of the sentiment to the shadow and glued it to the ink blended panel.
This panel was then adhered to a black panel using foam tape for dimension, and everything was then adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. No card is complete without embellishments, so I added a few PinkFresh Studio Gold Metallic Pearls to finish it up!
That does it for this card! Have you checked out the entire StampTember line up yet? Do you have any favorites? My wallet is screaming right now! Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget to stay awesome friend!
