Spellbinders July Clubs Blog Hop

Hello and welcome back to my blog! Today, the Spellbinders team is spotlighting the July Clubs with an awesome blog hop! Comment along the hop for your chance to win a $50 gift certificate to Spellbinders! Details below. I’m showcasing a card that I created using the July Card Kit of the Month, so let’s jump right in!

I began this project by trimming a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock just smaller than an A2 card. I popped the panel in the Misti and repeatedly stamped the two larger flowers from the included stamp set with VersaMark ink, and white heat embossed those using SSS Detail White Embossing Powder.

I did some light ink blending over the panel using Distress Oxide inks Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron and Broken China. Once the ink blending was complete, I adhered the panel to a card base, which is also included in the card kit.

I loved the Bonjour sentiment in the ephemera pack, so I placed foam tape on the back of that and adhered it towards the bottom of my card. I wanted a sub-sentiment, so I foiled the Hello Friend sentiment, which is from the Spellbinders Everyday Sentiments II set, using Champagne foil. I adhered that under the main sentiment using foam tape as well.

To finish up the project, I adhered two of the included dimensional butterflies for added interest. I hope you enjoyed this project, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Head over to Spellbinders to check out all of the clubs they have to offer!

As I mentioned above, to celebrate the release of the July clubs, we are having an awesome blog hop!

Spellbinders July Card Kit of the Month Inspiration

Hello Crafty Friends! Hope your weekend is off to a great start! The Spellbinders July Clubs are now available, and today I’m featuring the July Card Kit of the Month, Damask Daydream! You can join any of the Spellbinders Clubs now through July 24th to receive the current July kits! So let’s jump right in to today’s projects!

The Card Kits are so great, because you have everything included in the kit to make at least ten cards! There’s always super cute patterned papers, stamps, ephemera, dies and even more! For this post, I created four cards using the goodies from the kit. My favorite things to work with are always the papers and the ephemera pieces, which you’ll see from the pics!

So for this first project, I trimmed a couple of the patterned papers to fit an A2 sized card. I also used the included leaf die cuts to cut some gold leaves to add to my project. I adhered the ephemera pieces using a combination of glue and foam tape and glued the gold leaves around those for that added interest and shine. I love all the shine from this gold cardstock!

For my second project, I used the Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangles to cut a piece of the patterned paper, and once again cut some leaves from gold cardstock. I positioned the pink ephemera Beautiful square in the center of my card and attached the glitter Hello along the side of it securing the overhang with foam tape. I cut two pink flowers using the included flower die and adhered those together.

I adhered the pink ephemera flower using foam tape, and adhered the die cut flower with liquid glue. I used glue to adhere the gold and green leaves under and around the flowers. I also added some Spellbinders Gold Mix Color Essentials Gems for a little more bling.

The third project once again uses the Hemstitch Rectangles along with lots of ephemera pieces and included stickers. I fell in love with the gold leaves, so of course, I had to cut some more of those. I centered the Think Happy Thoughts sticker in the center of my card and adhered the surrounding floral elements using foam tape. I tucked in some gold leaves using glue and added one of the included purple butterflies.

My last project actually utilizes the floral frame die cut, the flower die cut and the included stamp set! I stamped the Hello Beautiful sentiment from the stamp set using VersaMark Ink on Neenah Classic Crest 110lb and heat embossed it using Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder, trimming it afterwards. I used the Hemstitch Rectangles again to cut a panel of patterned paper and adhered the white floral frame to that.

I also cut a purple and white flower and glued those together and glued it to the corner of the floral frame. I added the sentiment pieces to the card using foam tape for dimension, as well as, one of the purple floral stickers. For added interest, I added some of the Damask Daydream Gems included in the kit.

Spellbinders Heartfelt Thanks from the Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection

Hello Crafters and welcome back! I was super excited when asked to play with products from the Spellbinders Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken! What a beautiful collection this is! Today’s project is featuring the Heartfelt Thanks Vignette, so let’s get into the project!

To begin, I cut all of the die elements from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb cardstock. I also cut the backing die for the sentiment panel once from black cardstock. I adhered the Heartfelt Thanks panel to that black panel using Craft Tacky Glue. I took the trimmed oval insert portion and used the Flower Pattern Glimmer Hot Foil plate to add Sky Bright foil for some added interest.

I adhered all of the oval sections together using a combination of glue and foam tape. I used the Hemstitch Rectangles to cut a panel of black cardstock, and adhered that to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. I then glued the oval panels atop that. For more added interest, I used the Mini Blooms and Sprigs Die set to cut some matching blue flowers, yellow centers and green leaves and adhered those to the card using glue and foam tape as well.

Super simple card today! Die cutting is my jam, and I love solely die cut cards! I hope you enjoyed this project and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! What’s your favorite technique on cards?

Spellbinders Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes

Hey Friends! So glad you stopped by today! I was super excited to play with products from the new Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken from Spellbinders! Have you checked it out yet? For today’s project, I’m playing with the Beautiful Inside and Out Sentiments Stamp set! Let’s get into it!

To begin this project, I cut two pieces of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and foiled the Spellbinders Glimmering Peony Hot Foil Plate using Champagne Foil. Champagne is my go-to color for foil! I just ordered a bunch of new to me colors, so I may find a new favorite in those, but who knows! While I already had the Glimmer machine going, I went ahead and foiled the Skinny Stripe Background using the same foil on another panel of Neenah 110. Anyhoo, I went to town coloring the foiled peonies using Copic Markers Y00, Y08, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17, YG11, YG13 and YG17.

Once those were colored, I fussy cut them and placed foam tape on the back of both. I took the Skinny Stripe panel, trimmed it down and popped it in the Misti and stamped my sentiment from the Beautiful Inside and Out Sentiments, using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. I removed the backing from the foam tape on the flowers and adhered those to my striped panel and trimmed off the excess.

I adhered the striped panel to a black cardstock panel for some contrast and then adhered those to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. I decided to foil another peony and fussy cut that to adhere on the inside of the card where I stamped the other sentiment using the same VersaFine ink. To finish up the card, I added some PinkFresh Studio Jewels for some bling.

That does it for this card! I hope you like it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty in your space! Hop over and check out the entire Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection! Lots of fun things to look at!

Stay awesome my crafty friend!

Spellbinders Truly Yours Collection

Hello Crafters and welcome back to my blog! I was super excited when I was asked to create a few projects using the Spellbinders Truly Yours Collection! This is such an awesome collection because it features Glimmer plates, dies and even a great sentiment stamp set! So let’s get into today’s four projects!

For my first project, Sending Hugs Floral, I’m featuring the Rings Around the Circle Die set, a sentiment from the Mini Sincere Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die set, as well as some flowers from the Heart Swans Die set. To begin my project, I die cut the Rings Around the Circle dies from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and some yellow cardstock.

I adhered the white circles to my card panel in a random pattern, and inlaid the small yellow circles into the big circles using glue. I then die cut the flowers and leaves from the Heart Swans Die set using blue, green and yellow cardstock, and adhered the centers of the flowers. The flowers were then adhered to the middle of the circles using a combination of glue and 3M Foam Tape.

Using gold foil, I hot foiled the Sending Hugs sentiment from the Mini Sincere Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die set and adhered that to my panel using foam tape. My panel was then adhered to my card base, which is also 110lb cardstock.

On my next project, Miss You Heart Swans, using gold foil, I doubled foiled the two largest plates from the Essential Glimmer Label Glimmer Hot Foil Plates on a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. I then die cut the wreath from the Cameo Etched Dies set from the same cardstock and adhered it to my foiled panel using glue. I die cut the swans from the Heart Swans Die set and lightly ink blended some PinkFresh Studio Sparkling Rose around the edges, and adhered those over the wreath using foam tape.

I die cut the flowers from the swan set using pinks and green cardstock and adhered the centers of the flowers. I then adhered the flowers around the the gold foil using glue and foam tape for dimension. I stamped the Miss You sentiment from the I’m Here for You Stamp and Die set using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I glued the sentiment directly to the swans in the center. My panel was then adhered to my card base.

My third project, You’re on My Mind Floral, ended up being my favorite project of them all! I loved these little flowers so much that I decided to make my own background using them. For this one, I die cut a bunch of flowers and leaves from the Bouquet of Flowers Die set using blue, pink, purple, yellow and green cardstock and adhered the stems and flower centers using glue. I then arranged and glued them atop a gold splattered panel, trimming off the excess as needed.

I then adhered my panel to a pink panel, and then to my card base, which is 110lb cardstock. Using gold foil, I foiled the sentiment from the Mini Sincere Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die set, trimmed it out, and adhered it to my card using foam tape for dimension. To finish up, I added some PinkFresh Studio Jewels Mix to the larger flowers, because I thought some bling was in order!

For my last project, I die cut the two largest Elliptical Ovals Dies from black and white cardstock and glued those together, and then glued those to a black splattered panel. I then die cut the dress portions of the Paper Coutour Dress Dies from black cardstock, and the bow and hanger portions using glitter cardstock, and adhered those together. I again used the flowers and leaves from the Heart Swans Die set to cut those out of white cardstock.

I adhered the dress to the ovals using foam tape, and adhered the white flowers around the ovals using a combination of glue and foam tape. I then attached my panel to a panel of black cardstock to pull all of the black elements together, and then to a card base. Using silver foil, I hot foiled the sentiment from the Mini Sincere Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die set, trimmed it down and glued it to the bow of the dress. To finish this card, I added some silver embellishments to the flowers for some added bling.

That does it for my projects featuring the Truly Yours Collection from Spellbinders! I hope you enjoyed them, and I hope they inspire you to get crafty!

Spellbinders June Card Kit of the Month

Hey Guys and welcome back! Today I’m showcasing a few cards that I created using the Spellbinders Wild Hello June Card Kit of the Month. If you’ve never tried their Card Kits, I highly recommend them! Everything you need to create at least ten cards is in this kit! I just love the ephemera pieces in this kit, as you’ll see from my set of cards. So let’s get into the them!

For most of my projects, I used the pack of decorative cards as the focal point, as well as, papers from the included 6×6 pack of paper. For this first Hello card, I used only elements from the kit, with the exception of the black and white twine. Everything was assembled using a combination of glue and foam tape. I did a repeat pattern of the Hello die in gold for added interest.

My second card features patterned paper, ephemera elements, puffy stickers and the Happy Birthday die. I did die cut the Happy Birthday a couple of times from heavy white cardstock and once from gold cardstock and adhered those together using glue, because dimension is life! Once again, everything was assembled using glue and foam tape.

This third card, Always You, uses those cute decorative cards again. These really do make a great focal point, which makes for a super easy card! And, I need easy sometimes! The only additional products that I used for this one is some gold splatter, a corner rounder punch and some jewel embellishments. I thought some bling was in order! Glue and foam tape pulled this one together as well!

More sunshine! More smiles! I trimmed this decorative card down to an oval, because I had in my head that this would be super cute as a shaker card! The white round oval is a die from the Elliptical Ovals set that I used in conjunction with some acetate to create the shaker. All of the other elements are from the kit.

My last card ended up being my favorite, I guess because I love the black and white elements mixed with the bright colors. Additional products used on this card were a couple of flowers that I made using the Mini Blooms and Sprigs set, along with some black jewels and a corner rounder punch. Everything was assembled with a combination of glue and foam tape.

That finishes up my projects using this fun, Wild Hello June Card Kit! This is my first card kit from Spellbinders, and I’m quite pleased at how easy it was to create cards using all of the cute tidbits included in the kit! I hope you’ll stop by their website to check it out! I’ve recently joined their Large Die of the Month and Glimmer of the Month Clubs, and am having a blast with those too! Anyhoo, thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope you enjoyed these projects!

Stay awesome sweet friends!

Spellbinders Deer Friend

Sweet Cardlets Collection II by Becca Feeken

Hello! Hello! I was super excited to be able to play with the new Deer Friend Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die Set from Becca Feeken! This is such a cute little set and made the sweetest card. Let’s get started!

To begin, I trimmed a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock, and heated up the Glimmer Hot Foil System. Using the Quick Trimmer, I trimmed some strips of Champagne Foil so that I could use the largest of the Essential Glimmer Rectangles set. Yana Smakula’s hinge method of foiling works GREAT, so I used that to position the foil strips and popped it on to hot foil. While everything was already hot, I went ahead and foiled all of the elements of the Deer Friend set.

I used Copic Markers E000, E00, YG11, YG13, RV00 and RV10 to color the deer and florals, and used the coordinating dies in the set to cut them out. I also used the Simply Perfect Layered Blooms Set to cut some florals and leaves from pinks and green cardstock. I went ahead and adhered the floral pieces together using Craft Tacky Glue.

To assemble the card, I used foam tape for the sentiment and the deer in the bottom right corner, and used a combination of glue and foam tape to adhere the blooms and leaves in the upper left corner. I had a bloom left over, so I tucked it down around the sentiment. I added PinkFresh Studio Jewels to the centers of the flowers, because every card needs bling! Am I right?!?! I attached my panel to a Neenah 110lb card base to finish it up.

I hope you enjoyed this project! I think this deer is the cutest and really enjoyed playing with it! Don’t forget to check out the entire Sweet Cardlets II Collection from Becca Feeken. There’s other super cute stuff in this collection!

Spellbinders Delightful Darlings

Hello Crafters and welcome back! For today’s project, I’m featuring a card using the new Darling Bouquet stamp set, which is from a series of four sets illustrated by Mayline Jung. These are super cute and super fun! So, let’s get into today’s project.

To begin, I die cut a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using the PinkFresh Studio Diagonal Stitched Rectangles and placed that in my Misti. There are three small flowers in this set, and I decided to create my own background with those. I positioned the stamps and stamped them using VersaMark Ink and heat embossed them using Simon Says Stamp Detail White Embossing Powder. I rotated my panel for additional stamping and repositioned the stamps towards the end to fill the remaining space.

I very lightly ink blended Distress Oxide Spun Sugar over the entire panel and began coloring the stamped flowers using Copic Markers RV00, RV10, RV11 and RV32. I went back to my Misti and stamped the girl using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored that image using E000, E00, E70, E71, E74, E79, N0, YG11, YG13, B00, BG70, BG72, BG75. As a note, I used the same pinks to color the bouquet that I used for the background. Once the coloring was done, I fussy cut the image for mounting.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment on Neenah 110lb using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed that using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I trimmed that out using the Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Label Dies, and mounted the sentiment as well as the girl on my background panel using 3M Foam Tape.

I added pink jewels to the larger flowers using PinkFresh Studio Jewel Mix, and I added small dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops Carnation Pink to the smaller flowers on the background and the bouquet. I then mounted my panel to a card base, which is Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock.

That finishes today’s project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Thanks for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day, and stay awesome friends!
