Four Petal Scroll

 Hi all. I am popping in to share this card  made for Spellbinders using their classic Four Petal Scroll Label Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from the Four Petal Collection.

I started by hot foiling the scroll frame using Copper hot foil roll on a panel of cardstock. Trim the panel slightly smaller than the car base and ink blend some blue ink around the panel. Next, die cut the pierced label frame and hot foil it with the sentiment. I was going to leave it just like that, but then I thought a little butterfly would complete the card better. So, I added the butterfly from Simon Hurley Butterfly Kisses set and finish by adding some sequins.

I think the shimmer on the scroll really enhanced the elegant scroll design. Well, that's all I have for today as I need to go back to  my crafting table and play with more sets. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. :)

The Ton Anniversary Release

Hi all and welcome to The Ton anniversary release. To celebrate its anniversary The Ton has released several coordinating stencils for previously released stamp set. So, for those of you who already has the sets, this is a great way to make the coloring process easier and for those who prefer to work with stencil, then  this is it.

For my part, I am showcasing the gorgeous Sweet Bouquet Dahlia Layering Stencil. This is such a pretty bouquet and is one of my favorite from this release.

I simply colored each layer of stencil with Coralline, Coral Cavern, Soft Garden and Matcha.
To be honest though, the first layer, I have no clue what color it was, as I was just using leftover color that still on the brush and I thought it looks pretty, so I just use it. :)  And to finish I added some Dark Purple Opaque rhinestones.

For my next card, I am featuring Sunkissed Dahlia Layering Stencil

I started by using Quilted A2 Coverplate die. Then I stenciled the Dahlia on the panel. Next, I die cut the word wishes using Bold General Greeting Word Plate die. I can't even remember how old this sentiment set is, all I know I use it quite a bit. Definitely one of those set that you can just use again and again.

Well peeps, that's all from me today. To see the complete release and see what my teammates has created for this release, please check the links below. May your week starts off wonderfully.

Spellbinders March Club Kits

Hi peeps. I know it's still early March, but at my end, the weather is definitely already quite warm. Not  hot, but the perfect warm, which make me totally in spring mood. In fact the day before I started doing some planting on our backyard. Anyway, the spring like weather also make me in the mood for spring color cards.

For my 1st card I used Spellbinders March Embossing Club Kit for the background and paired it with Spellbinders' January Large Die Club Kit of the month

For the sentiment I hot foiled one of the sentiment from Everyday Sentiments 2 Hot Foil plate on a strip of vellum. I have to say that vellum take hot foil beautifully. 

My next card is featuring the gorgeous Spellbinder's March Glimmer Club kit

I was a bit worried that it would be had to line up the plate to get full coverage of the whole card panel, but it turned out to be super easy. I love the way the full panel look that I ended up making 2 cards repeating the same technique, just using different color scheme.

Have you tried any of Spellbinders club kit? They have lots of different options. That's all I have for today. I hope you enjoy today's cards. May your week starts off in a terrific way. Till next time. :)

Spellbinders March Stitching Die Kit

Hi friends. Happy crafty month. Today I am showcasing Spellbinders' March Stitching Die Club kit Am pretty proud at the way this card turned out considering the amount of stitching on this card. Hah! I  actually love stitching as my other favorite craft beside card making is cross stitching. 

For this card, I started by die-cutting all the pieces. Then, I took my time stitching all the pieces. I usually do this while watching TV since I can't quite sit still. To match the color of the thread, I adhered the pierced and stitched panel to lime green cardstock base. Love the pop of that bright green. Then, I adhere all the little leave pieces. For sentiment I used Yana's Sentiment Glimmer Hot Foil Plate, Finished by adding some rhinestones.

Well peeps, that's all from me today. Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

The first couple cards featuring the newly released Spellbinders' Scrolled Punch & Pierce Plate-die from The Four Petal Collection. For both card, I paired it with Spellbinders' January Large Die Club Kit of the month

For the first card above, I used the Scrolled Punch & Pierce Plate-die on a piece of blue cardstock and I did some ink blending on the edges before adhering the whole panel to a brown cardstock. Then I die cut all the flower and leaves pieces, arrange and adhere all of them to the card. Finished by adding sentiment from  Yana's Sentiment Glimmer Hot Foil Plate,

For my next card, I repeated al the same steps, just changing the color scheme.

And for the sentiment I used one of the sentiment from Simon Hurley Butterfly Kisses set, which is a set I also used for the next card.

Four Petal Blooms

Hi friend. Every month I am always excited when I get to share my project using Spellbinders' sets. This month is no exception. Today, I am featuring the new set Four Petal Bloom Reflection Etched Dies. I am so happy with the way  my card turned out.

As crafter, we find inspiration everywhere and we have a lost of crafter that we love. I have to say that Yana Smakula is probably is one of my top favorite card maker and I often inspired by her. I tend to shy away from dark color, until I saw her cards. She often use dark color cardstock and that really inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and do more card with dark color cardstock. And, I find myself actually loving dark color cardstock, especially when I get to combine it with soft color cardstock. I feel like it really make the color pops while still has a soft look to it, like this card.

For the background I used Dazzling Dots Embossing Folder. Then I die cut the flourishes from Four Petal Bloom Reflection Etched Dies twice and went to town creating the layers with various color cardstocks. Assembled all the pieces and finished by hot foiling sentiment from sentiment from More Sentiments Hot Foil set.

I hope you enjoy today's card & am hoping to have more free times to create more card with this set, cause I am in love with this set. Wishing you all a good, happy weekend. Cheers.

Spellbinders February Embossing & Glimmer Kit

Hi friend. I am back with more cards showcasing Spellbinders Club kit. I have another card showcasing Spellbinders Embossing Club Kit.

For this one, I ink blended various ink on the cardstock before running the panel through the embossing folder. Once that done, I trimmed the panel and adhere it to the card base. Next, I die cut branches and bird using Spellbinders' Sealed Birds Etched Dies. Adhere it to card base and finish by hot foiling sentiment using More Sentiments Hot Foil & Be Bold Glimmer Sentiments set.

I was on a roll, so I finished 2 cards using February Glimmer Club kit. Check out my post on Instagram to see the pretty glimmer on this tulip card.

I simply hot foiled the tulips on a panel of cardstock and keep the design clean and simple by not adding any color at all. Instead I added some cardstock strips for the pop of color. Thanks to my friend Alba, who told me how beautifully Yupo paper take hot foiling. Yep, the same Yupo paper that I used for alcohol ink.

For my next card, I di dte opposite & go all colorful. 

And, yeah, I have so many patterned paper from my scrapbooking day that this is the rare time I used patterned paper. It will take me a long time to really h through those paper. 3 full drawers of them. Well peeps, that's all from me  today. Hope you enjoy today's cards and may your day be a wonderful one.

Spellbinders' Stitching Die of The Month

Hello friends. Today, I want to share a project I made using Spellbinders' January Stitching Die Club kit. It has such a pretty & fun pattern.

I decided to use cool color combo as they're one of my favorite color combo to use. It's pretty straight forward on how I made this card. Once all the stitching done, I simply stamped the sentiment using one of the sentiment from Many Birthdays set, then finished by adding some rhinestones.

Quick post today as I am still recovering from my jetlag. The 25 hour flight from Singapore to Houston has left me with mess up body clock. I've been up at 3 or 4 in the morning and then sluggish by noon. Hopefully this weekend would help me get back to normal. Till next time.

Spellbinders' January Club Kits

 Hi all. Let me start by wishing you all a very Happy New Year!! May this coming year be a good one for all of us. I am praying for good, peaceful year. As this post go up, I'm celebrating this New Year in Indonesia and I am so very grateful for the chance of celebrating in my home country again. It's been over a decade since I get to do this. So very grateful.

And, of course, new year, new month, also means new club kits from Spellbinders. :) This time, I am joining Spellbinders Embossing Club Kit and to kick things off, I made 2 cards with this month embossing folder.

I started by embossing a piece of cardstock panel and then I did light ink blending on the embossed areas. Next, I die cut some leaves from Sealed Bouquet Etched Dies set. Colored with greenk inks. Stamped sentiment from Many Birthdays set (psst... this set is currently on sale).Arrange the leaves behind the sentiment and adhere the sentiment with foam adhesive. Finish by adding some sequins.

For my 2nd card, I added some inks to the embossing folder with a brayer. Embossed the cardstock and to make the ink blended better, I sprayed the cardstock lightly with water. After I did this, I realized I should have wet the cardstock before I run it, but

My  next card is featuring January Glimmer Club kit.

Well peeps, as this post goes up, I’d be enjoying my last days of hanging out with my family before I have to head back home to the States. I am grateful for the chance of celebrating my mom’s birthday with her, in person, something I haven’t been able to do in over a decade. 

I wish you all q very happy New Year and may 2023 brings us all good health, prosperity & many blessings. Cheers….
