Graceful Blooms

Hi peeps. Happy Monday. Today I am sharing this beautiful set from Spellbinders called Graceful Blooms. I love the delicate design of this set. Here, I am keeping it simple and just let the flower shine.

When designing this card, I now I want to keep the flower black and white. So, I look for bright colors for background. I found one of the patterned paper that I have laying around, trim it nd layered it with gray cardstock. It's a very thin frame, but I feel it gives that framed look that I wanted. Then, I simply adhered the flowers with foam adhesive. For the sentiment I used my favorite sentiment set Sending You - Clear Stamp of the Month.

It's a clean and simple card, but I feel the bright colors helped make this black and white flower pop. That's all from me today & I hope this week starts off wonderfully for you all.

Spellbinders Stitched Alphabets

 When it comes to crafting, I do love variety of crafts. Not just paper crafting. During Covid lockdown period, I picked back up cross stitching that I used to love to do. I always go through phases with my crafting. Paper crafting is one craft that's always constant.

However, with this month's new release from Spellbinders' Stitched Collection, I get to combine paper crafting with stitching. Below is the card I made using Spellbinder's Sitched h, u, g and s.

This card is so fun to make. And, bonus point, I can do the stitching while watching TV. Hah! I love multitasking. I start by die-cutting all the letter and then add the stitching to each letter. Put them aside. Then using Be Bold Blooms I cut out some flowers, leaves and colored them with Copic. Arrange all the letters and the floral decor to the panel. Layered the panel and then adhered it to the card base. Finished by hot foiling the word "sending" from Mini Sincere Sentiment Glimmer Hot Foil set. The word sending is part of Sending Hugs sentiment and I simply trimmed it. Finish by adding some sequins.

Here's a close up look of the stitching details. If you're worried the cardstock might get ripped, you can always double layer the letters before doing the stitching. 

Hope you enjoy today's card. Do you love doing adding stitching to your card? If yes, then this alphabet sets would be a fun one to have. 

Oh, I want to send big shout out to my brother & SIL, who are celebrating their 27th anniversary today. Love you guys and wishing you many, many more years of happiness. That's all from me today peeps and may your day be a good one. Be kind and let love shine.
