Teal & Red Poinsettia

Hi all. Today, I am sharing Spellbinders' October Small Die of The Month set. Every month, Spellbinders continue to amaze me with their monthly club kit and this month is no exception.




For my card, I started with a panel that I hot foiled with Crossed Line Cardfront Gimmer Hot Foil Plate. Next, I die cut the flower pieces from various colored cardstock using Small Die of The Month set. Arrange and adhere them on the card base. Finish by adding the sentiment (it comes with the set) and some sequins. Again, another Christmas card in non-traditional colors. I mean,  that's what being crafty all about right? Create with whatever colors that make us happy.

Hope you enjoy today's card. Have a fabulous day y'all.

Stitched Ornament

Hi everyone. Today, I am showcasing Spellbinder's October Large Die of the Month set
Spellbinders Clubs are easy and fun because there is no minimum commitment and one can join/cancel any time from the account (you don’t need to reach out to Customer Support to do it, it is all straightforward). You can read the total Clubs FAQ HERE.




With this die set, you can make a simple card, or you can also go big and make a fancy 5x7 card. Yep, this whole thing actually lay flat, so you can ship it easily. I started with 5x7 cardstock panel that I embossed with Argyle Socks Embossing Folder. Then I used the display dies to create the display frame to hang the ornament.




And, the best thing about sending card like this, you can always take the ornament off the display frame and use it to decorate your Christmas tree. Fun, right?



 
I hope you enjoy today's project. Spellbinders Clubs are of great value and quality. There are multiple “value” Club options available, too, if you wish you get multiple Clubs. Feel free to email me if you have any question about it.

Spellbinders' October Glimmer Hot Foil of The Month

Hi all. Happy October! Yep, we're officially entering the last quarter of 2022. Time flies, isn't it? After a hot summer in Texas, I am grateful for the cooler weather.

Today, I have a beautiful hot foil set to share. Introducing Spellbinders' October Glimmer Hot Foil of The Month set. As soon as I saw it, I was in love.




The background was what I called happy accident. I was using the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Hot Foil Plate on a piece of folded cardstock and the top piece was foiled perfectly (which I used on previous card HERE) and the second layer has this beautiful embossing.. So, I simply saved it for my next project, which is this one. Next, I hot foiled the Poinsettia with Matte Gold hot foil roll., die cut and colored it with Copic markers. Adhere it to the card with foam adhesive. Then I foiled the sentiment that comes with the kit. Die cut and also adhere it with foam adhesive. I finished the card by adding some rhinestones.

I love the way this card turn out. Well pees, I hope you enjoy today's card.  Stay tune for more Spellbinders in a coming day.

Puppy!

Hi all. As someone that loves dog, I am definitely excited when I found out I get to play with this adorable set from Spellbinders called Special Pet Delivery Etched Dies. I have to say though, if you do plan on getting someone a puppy as present, please make sure they really want it and ready for it. I am a firm believer in having a puppy is a for life commitment. I don't believe in getting rid of a dog simply because they outgrow their puppy phase or because they're no longer look cute. Okay, okay off my soap box. Sorry, I just had to say that. :)




I knew right away that I want to pair this set with Geo Screen Embossing Folder and I ink blending various blue hues on the panel before doing the embossing. Adhere the panel to card base. Next, I die cut the puppies image and also the box which from previous release called Surprise Box Etched Die set. I ink blended some ink on the box to create shadow and then put together all the pieces. Somehow I felt the box was a bit too plain, so I added a couple heart from a stamp set that was part of past monthly club. To finish the card, I simply added hot foiled sentiment from More Sentiments Hot Foil set.

Well, that's all I have for my post folks. Have a wonderful day.

Love, Hope & Joy

Hi everyone. Today, I am back with a Christmas card featuring the same Spellbinders Folk Song set that I used on my previous set. I love this set. It reminds me of Scandinavian design, which I adore.





To start I die cut all the pieces for the bird. I adhered a dark blue cardstock behind the bird that I just hand cut. Put the bird aside and I start working on the wreath. Added a poinsettia from Holiday Blooms Etched Dies set. For the sentiment, I hot foil one of the sentiment from Mini Christmas Sentiment Strips Glimmer Hot Foil and finally finish the card by adding some enamel drop on the dots on the tail.

I think I am in love with this set. That's all I have for now. Have an awesome weekend!

Folk Song

Hi everyone. Today I am featuring one of Spellbinder's new September Winter Tales collection called Folk Song Etched Dies. This new set by Zsoka Marko is simply fantastic. I love her style.




This set is perfect for Christmas, but versatile enough to be used for non Christmas card, like I did on my card, I thought this design would make a fun birthday card. I started by die cutting all the bird pieces. Following the bird shape, I hand cut a smaller piece from light blue cardstock so it showed up through the opening on the bird. Next, I die cut a bunch of leaves.


For the background, I used Dazzling Dots Embossing folder. Adhere the embossed panel to card base. Next, I layered the leaves. In person, you could see the layering of the leaves is pretty thick and dimensional. I love it. I also added a little flower from Be Bold Blooms set to complete the end of the wreath. Then adhere the bird with foam adhesive. I don't have the Enchanted Garden set, so I did the next best thing to create the bell flower border. I used the top of the ornament from Spellbinders' Stitched Ornament Etched Dies and then just trim the the top part, the one with the hole. And, tadaaa... you get a bell shaped flower. :) Yes, I was pretty proud of myself that I thought of this. Hah!!

Finished with hot foiling sentiment from More Sentiments Hot Foil set. So, what do you think? I hope you like it. Well peeps, that's all from me today. Stay tune for the Christmas version of this set. Till next time.

Fall Birthday Card

Last week, I made a card using Spellbinders' September Glimmer Hot Foil of The Month set and change the center of the set from the supposed diamond shape to circle. Well, I love that set so much, that I decided to make another card and this time showing it's original diamond center shape. 



I hot foiled and die cut the leaves frame. Then colored with some random ink blending. Die cut the diamond center and put aisde. Next, I worked n  the background, which I embossed with.Dazzling Dots Embossing folder. I love this background, cause literally I could use it for any occasion. It makes interesting background without taking away from the main image. Adhere panel to card base and then arrange the leaves frame. For the sentiment, I used one of the sentiment from Yana's Sentiment Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and adhere it to the card with foam adhesive. I actually almost consider this card done after that, but decided to add a couple more leaves and flower.



Hope you enjoy today's card!

Spellbinders' September Large Die Set

I have to admit that usually I am not that much into making fall theme card. But, when I saw Spellbinder's September Large Die of the Month set, I thought, oooh, this one is a fun one to play with.


I found that as long as I incorporated some teal or pink to my fall card, I love it better. I don't know, I just  need something besides yellow, brown, orange mix. I die cut all the pieces for this card from white cardstock and colored all the pieces with Copic markers. Done with the coloring, arranged all the pieces on the panel that I embossed with Dazzling Dots Embossing Folder. Finished by adding the sentiment and some enamel dot stickers.

Well peeps, that's all from me today. Hope you enjoy today's card. Till next time.

Spellbinders' September Small Die

Hi there. Today, I am sharing Spellbinders' September Small Die of The Month set, which is one of the many Spellbinders club kit. 



 
I die-cut several of the leaves from the set and added some colors with ink blending. Once that done, I added the stitches and once I completed the stitches I layered them with their coordinating back. Put aside. For the background, I embossed a panel with Leafy 3D Embossing folder. Gently colored the panel by adding some green ink blending. Adhere the leaves with foam adhesive and tucked in silver threads underneath. Finish by die cutting the sentiment that comes with the set.

Pretty easy peasy. Well, almost. Hah! The stitching is a little extra work, but since the eaves are small, I got the stitching done pretty quick. 

Hope you get some crafting done if you have day off today. Wishing you all a gorgeous day.

Spellbinders September Glimmer Hot Foil Set

Hi all. I am excited to share the card I made using Spellbinders' September Glimmer Hot Foil of The Month set. I have to admit this card came out better than the way I envision it. As I work on it, I keep making changes here and there from my original plan & am happy with the result.




To start, I ma
de the background using Beveled Diamonds 3D Embossing folder. Adhere the embossed panel to the card base. Next, I hot foil the leaves from the set 3 times with Aura hot foil roll. Color them with come ink blending and die cut it with the coordinating die. At first, I was going to use the diamond shape for the center of the leaves, but then I thought I should do something different. I decided to use a circle for the center. So, I hot foil the sentiment and die cut it with a circle and ink up some color around the circle. Then I added liquid glue on the back of the circle and went ahead adding and trimming the leaves as I filled up the circle. Then I adhere the whole wreath with foam adhesive. 




I hot foil the flower that come with the set a few times and also die cut some branch from gold cardstock for filler. Tuck them in around the wreath and finish by adding some sequins. 

That's all from me today peep. I hope you enjoy today's card and may your Labor day weekend be a good one. Cheers.
