Spellbinder Sending You

 I always enjoy a good sentiment set and when I saw Spellbinders September Clear Stamp of the Month, I was pretty darn happy, because I could use this set for all kind of occasion. Here's a look at the set:



I know right away that I want to heat embossed the large sentiment and I work from there.






So, I start by stamping, heat embossed and die cut the word "Sending You". Put it aside. Next, I used a Post-It-Note to cover the bottom and side edges of the card base. Then, I ink blend an orange and yellow ink. Remove the tape. Then I used Simply Perfect Layered Bloom dies set to cut the flowers and leaves pieces. Arrange all of them on the card. I also added a little butterfly that came in  Spellbinders Card Kit of The Month. Finish by adhering the embossed sentiment and stamped the word Lots of Love.




That's all I have for today. Thank you for stopping by here and wishing you all a happy Tuesday!

Spellbinder's You Are Stellar Kit

 Hi peeps. Am I the only one asking how could it be October already? This past month been such a stressful month for me work wise that am truly grateful for my card making hobby. It helps keep me sane. It keeps me grounded and allow me to have time of joy just by playing with pretty colors and creating.

Among the projects that I created are these cards I made using Spellbinders Card Kit of The MonthTheir October "You Are Stellar" kit is so pretty and fun to play with. Here's a peek at what included with the kit.



Let's start with my favorite card from this stash.



This foil gold star patterned paper is already gorgeous to start with, but I decided some ink blending of blue and purple would take it to next level. Once I finished the ink blending, I trim the paper and adhere to card base. Adhere the sentiment embellishment and add the feather, flowers and unicorn. And, you're done! Quick and dreamy looking card.

I love unicorns, so this kit is totally up my alley as you can see on my 2nd card.




For my 2nd card, I trim and adhere the patterned paper and also add a strip of gold foil cardstock on the bottom. Next, add the star circle paper and adhere the circle sentiment wit foam adhesive. Finish by adding the unicorn.




For my 3rd card above, I used the framed dies that's included in the kit. Adhere the patterned paper to card base & die cut the frame pieces. Adhere frame and the gold sticker sentiments to the card. I already adhere the stickers when I thought that I should include the unicorn on this card as well. Luckily I was able to tuck in the unicorn circle under the sentiment. Finish by adding the circle sentiment. Now, last but not least another quick card with no stamping at all.




Seriously, when I play with kit, I don't think much. I like to take out all the embellishment pieces and see which ones I'd like to pair together. I tend to be very precise and like to over think things sometime and the kit allow me to be more relax and go with the flow. Just play around, layer things around and see which pieces catch  my attention. For this last card, I just layer all the pieces together.

There you go, 4 cards from Spellbinders Card Kit of The Month, that I hope you find fun and makes you want to create. :) That's all from me today and may your week starts off wonderfully. Cheers...

SugarPea Design Fall Sweet Peek Day 3

Hi there. I am back as we continuing with more sneak peek from SugarPea Designs release. Today, we're introducing Shut The Front Door set. This is a fun one to play with!




I won't bore  you with the step by step on making this card. Pretty much you just die cut all  the pieces and assemble them. What I love on this card is the other extra stuff. For example, I love the cat & dog addition (from Let's Stay Home set). Where's the dog you might ask? Just wait... and let's open the door! 




Tadaaaa..... I love that the door open up! I can add additional details and this is where I can also add my sentiment. Fun, right? I feel like the open door brings additional surprise. What do you think?

Hi peeps and welcome to Sweet Peek Week!! I am excited to share projects that I’ve created with SugarPea Designs NEW 2021 Fall Collection. And all of the products that we will be introducing this week will be available for purchase starting this Friday, September 17 at 2PM EST in the SPD Store (all the product links will  go live on Sept. 17)

Today we start by introducing Always Welcome set featuring an arched front door with loads of accessory images for decorating and creating a warm and inviting entryway scene.




Here. I started by stenciling the background using English Bond Brick stencil from previous release. Then, stamped all the element, arrange on card and adhere. And, guess what? You can open the door, so you can stamp sentiment inside of handwritten your message. Mine is currently blank as I want to personalize it when I know who I want to send the card to.

Spellbinders' September Clear Stamp of The Month

When I saw Spellbinders September Clear Stamp of the Month, I was so happy, because I love birds!! And the birds o this set are so sweet & cute.




I decided to combine the birds with Stained Glass Bouquet Collection by Becca Feeken die. The leaves design on the oval frame reminds me of nest, so I thought this would make a perfect background to anchor birds. I first trim a soft green cardstock and adhere it to the card base. Next, I die cut the stained glass frame and adhere it to the card as well. I wanted to use the small leaves pieces to create the in-laid look, so carefully I adhere the pieces that I want to use one by one and colored them with Copic.




Once that done, I stamped, colored and die cut the birds. Adhere them to the card with foam adhesive. Finished by stamping the sentiment, trim it and add it.

I love the way this card turned out. Basically, anything with flowers, birds, butterfly tend to make me happy. I hope you enjoy today's card. That's all for me today. Have a blessed day!

Spellbinders' September Card Kit

 Hi peeps. This past long weekend, I got a much needed crafting time. For me, crafting is my way to step away from stress, to unwind and stop thinking of the world for a few hours. I played with Spellbinders Card Kit of The Month. This month theme is "Better Together" and it is a fun, delightful kit.


I made 3 cards with this kit, let's check it out, shall we?




For my 1st card, I used the patterned paper and the foil cardstock for my base. Once I adhere the patterned paper and the strip of foil, I add one of the frame cardboard sticker. Next, I stamped the Russian dolls images and colored them with Copic marker. Fussy cut and adhere to card. Finished by adding the foil sentiment sticker. 

On to the next card, where....gasp... no stamping at all!! 




I simply picked some elements from the kit that I love, play with the arrangement and once I am happy with the look, adhere everything to the card base. I am loving this layering look. By keeping the background white, it allow me to layered quite a few elements while keeping it look clean & classy. What do you think?

And, last but not least, is this card that I made using the old school telephone dies.




Die cut all the telephone pieces and piece them together. Put aside. Trim a couple patterned paper and adhere them to the card base. Then adhere the phone. Goodness, does anyone born in the 90's know how to use this kind of phone? Back in the day, with this kind of phone, one thing for sure, I remember all my friends phone number. Nowadays, I only memorize the most important numbers. Okay, back to the card. Again, on this card, no stamping!! The cardboard banner stickers make perfect embellishment for the card.

There you go, three different cards to show the versatility of this month's kit. I hope you enjoy today's inspiration. Swing back by tomorrow as I'll be sharing a card I made using Spellbinders' Stamp Of The Month. Have a beautiful day, peeps.

The Ton Fall Release Day 2

 Hi all and welcome to day 2 of The Ton fall release. For this release, The Ton is introducing 19 stamp & dies and I am excited to share them with you. Let's get on to the cards, shall we?




For my 1st card, I am using the gorgeous Poinsettia Bouquet & Styled Christmas Sentiment set. I start by stamping and heat embossed the poinsettia with gold embossing powder on a watercolor panel. Then, I watercolored the image and let dry. Once dry adhere the panel to card base. Then stamp & heat embossed the sentiment and die cut it with Styled Christmas Sentiment coordinating die. Then adhere to the card and we're done. :)

Now, on to the second card.



For this card, I run a panel of cardstock with Festive Folk Coverplate die. I love, love the details of this coverplate. Adhere the pane to card base. From my card that I shared yesterday, I have the pieces from Holiday Coloring Bits that I used on this card. Arranged the bits and adhere with foam adhesive to the card. To finish, I stamped and die cut the sentiment from Styled Christmas Sentiment.

I hope you enjoy today's cards. Want more inspirations? Please check out my teammates blog. Wishing you all a lovely weekend. Cheers....
