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?

Hi all and welcome to day 1 of The Ton fall release. We're already in September, can you believe it? Well, September also means it's time to start working on Christmas cards!! I know, I know, it's early, but if you're like me and don't have too much free time, it's always good to start building your Christmas card stash in advance.
For this release, The Ton is releasing a good size collection. Please note that as of this moment you can pre-order the new release on 9/3 and they will start shipping on 9/22.
For today, I am showcasing the gorgeous & detailed Fancy Folk Tree Layering Coverplates dies. There are 2 coverplate and you could just use one of the plate or use both for beautiful piercing details.

I started by die cutting the scallop background with SugarPea Card Front Element Builder dies. Then, without removing the dies, I layered the wave stencil and add blue ink blending. Next, I layered the sunburst stencil and ink up a couple different yellow hues. Once this done, then, I removed the dies. Adhere the panel to this pretty soft green Matcha cardstock from Maker Forte. This is my favorite soft green cardstock. Next, I colored the seals and the clouds (from Heffy Doodle Quack Me Up set). Fussy cut them and then adhere them to the card. Finish by stamping the sentiment, add some shimmer and some enamel drops.
Now, for my 2nd card, I completely switch gear from cutesy to floral.
For this card I used this gorgeous Hugs set by Alex Syberia Design for Maker Forte. I inked it up using Maker Forte Eclipse Black ink. And, wow... I am not usually easy to impress when it comes to ink, but this black ink is solid dark black. And it works perfectly with any alcohol markers. Colored the flowers and once finished, trim the panel and adhere it to the Matcha card base. Finished by stamping the sentiment from SugarPea Floral Envie set and add some enamel drops.

It's that time of the month again, where I get to play with Spellbinders Card Kit of The Month. This month's theme is Art School and it is filled with so many fun paper, stickers and embellihsments. I love rainbows, so this kit definitely right up my alley.
Let's take a look at what's included in this kit, shall we? It's full of happy colors. :)
And, below are the cards I created with this kit.
I made this first card with someone that I admire in mind. She has mad artistic skills and can paint and draw beautifully. I plan on sending this card to her. I simply trim a couple patterned paper for the background and then arrange the various embellishments on the card. I also stamped the artist using the included stamp set on this kit. Colored, fussy cut and adhere to the card. Finish by adhering the sentiment.
Same thing with the next card. Except on this card, no stamping at all!! The benefit of using a kit, I can just play with the included embellishments. Simply choose the ones you want to use and voila it all come together quickly.
4th card is this owl card. Again, I used one of the patterned paper from the paper pad and this time I played with the paint tube and paint palette dies.

As promised, today I am back with another Christmas cards. I am tempted to do 31 Christmas cards in 31 days for August, but I realized that's unrealistic for me. My work load at the office been crazy and I would be crazy to try to add more load to what I already have going on. So, I am happy with whatever I can accomplish as time allow.
For today's card, I am showcasing this beautiful Circle Kaleidoscope Slimline Etched Dies from the Slimline Collection.
