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!
