Hello Blooms

Happy Tuesday all. Am so glad that I get to play with this gorgeous Hello Blooms stencil * die bundle from Spellbinders.

This stencil is all in 1 sheet, so no chance of missing or misplace one of the layer. Once I finish with the stencil I die cut it with the coordinating die. Am keeping it simple and finish it by adding the sentiment.

Now, I actually have a story for this 2nd card. This one created by accident. Hah! When I first did the stencil I forgot to pay attention which side is the right side. Only when I finished coloring that I realized I had flipped the stencil. I re-did the stencil and made the 1st card above. Then, since I hate wasting stuff, I decided to see if somehow I can get a card out of this stenciled piece that I did wrong. I hold the cardstock t o the light and see if I can line up the die cut somehow and luckily I managed to do it and voila, ended up with a second card. Come to think of it, great way to get more out of the supply, right?

Now my 3rd card is using Best Wishes On Your Birthday Hot Foil combined with Spellbinders May Embossing Club Kit.

Finished the card by adding mix size rhinestones to make the card more festive and that's it.  That's all I have for today. I hope you enjoy all the cards. Thank you for stopping by here. Have a blessed day all.

Stitched Kaleidoscope Hexi-Gem

 Hi all. It's new release day at Spellbinders and today I have a stitched card to share showcasing one of the new release set, Stitched Kaleidoscope Hexi Gem Etched dies.

What surprise me about this set is the layering dies that came with it, which I thought add a lovely touch. I die cut the pieces and did the stitching. And then layered all the pieces and adhere to card base. For the sentiment I hot foiled a sentiment from Be Bold Glimmer Sentiments set on a piece of black cardstock.

Well peeps, quick and short post for me. May his coming week be a good one for you all.

Country Road

Hi all. It's new release day at Spellbinders and I am excited to showcasing sets from Spellbinders Country Road collection.

I simply die cut all the pieces from colored cardstocks and then added some shading with Copic markers on some of them to add interest. I also ink blended some green to the bottom the card panel and some blue on the top edge. Then arranged all the pieces. Not sure why I think this way, but I really love the cat silhouette. Like it's so perfect to complete this scene,

My 2nd card still featuring Garden Builder Etched Dies and this time I combine it with Country Wheelbarrow Die set.

 For this one I hot foiled the sentiment from Be Bold Glimmer Sentiments set and finish by adding some rhinestones.

I hope you enjoy today's cards. Stay tune and I';; be sharing more cards from Spellbinders release.

First up is my card showcasing Spellbinders' May Stitching Die Club kit. I love these balloons. This set is perfect to make fun birthday card and the stitching add that special touch.

Here I hot foiled the splatters from Splatter Sentiment Gimmer Hot Foil set in silver and then do the die-cutting. Stitched the balloons with silver threads and the adhere all the pieces to the card. Finish by hot foiling sentiment from More Sentiments Hot Foil on a strip of cardstock and add it to the card.

My 2nd card is highlighting Spellbinders May Embossing Club Kit.

This is a quick card. Here, I ink blended some colors to the card panel before doing the embossing. Then simply add the hot foiled sentiment strip and finished by adding some rhinestones.

Last, but not least is my card featuring featuring Spellbinder's May Glimmer Club kit.

Gotta love a good hot foil sentiment set. The fun thing is this set comes with the sentiment and the balloon die that allow you to create a balloon shape opening. Perfect for making shaker card.

Floral Friendship Collection

Hi all. Today I am sharing several projects that I literally create in 1 day, thanks to the beauty of Spellbinders Floral Friendship Collection. This new collection is available now. Part of this collection that I used for my cards today are Floral Friendship o6x6 paper pad, Dimensional Butterfly Stickers (my favorite!!), Floral Friendship Printed Die Cuts and Floral Friendship Printed Die Cut Sentiments

Let's get on with the 1st card, shall we?

For the background I used one of my favorite embossing folder from Spellbinders, Dazzling Dots Embossing Folder. Adhere panel to card base. Next, simply arrange the printed flower die cuts on the card and adhere the oval sentiment to finish the card.

Besides flower and birds, butterfly is another image that I love working with. Below is the a simple and super quick card I made using the Dimensional Butterfly Stickers.

For the next few card cards below, I used the patterned paper from the paper pad and paired them with teh printed die cut and printed die cut sentiments.

The patterned paper on this paper pad are simply gorgeous and seriously if you want, you can just trim it and add sentiment and you're done. Or, you can do what I do, add some dimension by adhering additional printed die cute with foam adhesive.

A couple more quick cards.

On my ast card, I simply used 2 of the printed die cut to create frame for the sentiment. Finish by adding some rhinestones.


I finished all 7 cards in one afternoon. I have to say, I think this is one of the prettiest collection Spellbinders has released. I definitely love that I can finish this many cards in 1 day. It's very rare for me to be able to do so. I hope you enjoy today's inspirations. May your week starts off wonderfully.

Spellbinders Embossing & Stitching Dies Club Kit

Hello friends. Today I have a couple cards to share. First up, my card featuring Spellbinder's April Glimmer Club kit.

Love this gorgeous foil leaves and it's perfect to make quick card. I simply hot foil the leaves twice on the card panel, colored them with Copic, trim the panel and adhere it to the card base. Finished by adding the sentiment.

My next card is showcasing Spellbinders' April Stitching Die Club kit 

I cut a panel slightly thinner than t he card base and then I embossed the card panel with Dazzling Dots Embossing Folder. Adhere the panel to card base. Next, I stitched the 3 layers of the seashell shaped cut out and die cut the frame and the sentiment. Once I have all the pieces I arranged them on the card. To finish the card, I die cut some flowers from last year Spellbinders' October Small Die of The Month. And added some enamel drops.

That's all I have for today friends. Hope you enjoy today's card and may today something good happened to you that make you smile. Cheers.

A Couple Thinking of You Cards

Hi all. Happy March. Today I am featuring Spellbinders April Embossing Club Kit. The pattern on this embossing folder is simply gorgeous and I made 2 cards because of it. 

For my 1st card, I simply tapped blue and green ink pad on one side of the embossing folder and then run it through the machine. Then I die cut some flowers from Spellbinders' January Large Die Club Kit of the month and add those to the card. For sentiment I used hot foiled sentiment from Everyday Sentiments 2 Hot Foil plate.

Since my first card is so pastel, when I did the 2nd card, I repeat the same step as above, but I inked up the embossing folder twice. Once I ran the embossing folde rtrhough the machine, I gently lift up the folder flap without moving the cardstock and ink up the folder once again as I am hoping this will give me darker color result. I actually had to do this twice as my 1st attempt was a bit messy as I must have moved the cardstock a bit and I ended up with blurry, messy lines.

This time I paired it with an older hot foil set, Blooming Ornament Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die setwhich I still love. I am in need of more thinking of you cards, so I stayed with thinking of you sentiment on this card.

And, I want to do a quick shout out to my big brother, Jeff. Today is his birthday and I honestly feel so lucky to have an amazing big brother like him. He is kind, wise, funny and someone I look up to. Have an amazing year, Jeff and wishing you all the best. 

That's all for me today and have a wonderful week everyone!

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. :)
