Sending Hugs

Hi friends. Hope you're all enjoying this holiday season to the max. Am popping in just to share this cozy card featuring Spellbinders' House Mouse Snuggle Up set. Here at my neck of the wood, it's definitely not a white Christmas and this year, it's not super cold either. But, when it' cold, snuggling up is absolutely my favorite thing to do.



 
As someone who loves critters, when I saw this set, I was immediately drawn to it. It's cute & give me that cozy vibe, so am excited to play with it. I simply stamped and colored the image with Copic markers. Then I frame it using Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangle Etched Dies Venise Lace. All in all this is a pretty quick card and I finished by adding some enamel drops. 

That's all I have for today peeps. Wherever you are and whether you celebrate Christmas or not, I wish that joy of the season be with you and your family.

Now, I am a huge fan of Spellbinders Club Kits and honestly I can't just pick 1 favorite. I just can't. I literally going back and forth trying to decide which ones are my favorite and finally narrow them down to the 4 cards below.

First, is this card using Spellbinders' February Stitching Die Club kit (Pocket Full of Spring) and Embossing Club Kit (Hydrangea Bloom). I think these 2 kits perfectly compliment each other and not only that, both sets are so versatile and can be used for variety of occasions.

 

Next one on my favorite list is Spellbinders' November Large Die of The Month Set, Towering Blooms. I love the modern style of this set and the big pieces allow you to complete a card in no time without too much fuss.



And, of course, since I love floral glimmer plate, I am adding the August Glimmer Club Kit Over Flowing Floral Glimmer Plate to my favorite set list. Also the fact that it has coordinate stencil totally make this set a keeper in my book.




And, last but not least Spellbinders May Embossing Club Kit (Candles For Every Birthday). Why I love this set? Because when I am in a jam and need super quick birthday card, I can quickly make one with this embossing folder. It's perfect for quick card while still packing a punch.

Spellbinders' December Club Kits

Hi friends. Happy December. Today, I have a few projects featuring Spellbinders December Club kit. First up is the card I made using Spellbinder's December Glimmer Club kit. I love when the foil set is flower related, just like this one. 




I simply hot foiled the flower corner twice to create the full frame and then colored them with Copic markers. For the sentiment I hot foiled one of the sentiment from Yana Inside Card Glimmer Sentiment and combined it with the birthday sentiment from sentiment from Yana's Layered Script Sentiments.

Next is the card I made using Spellbinders' November 3D Embossing folder.




Once I embossed the card panel, I colored the embossed flowers with Copic and add hot foiling sentiment that comes with the set. Finished by adding some enamel drops.

For my 3rd card, am showcasing Spellbinders November Embossing Club Kit.



I ink blended some red, pink and orange on the card panel before embossing it. I've been want to use Spellbinders Folk Song set again and thought this embossed background is perfect for it. Sentiment from Always and Forever Sentiment Strips Press Plate.

For my next card, was surprised at how much fun I had at making it. I wasn't too sure about this set till I start playing with it. The champagne bottle from Spellbinders' November Large Die of The Month Set just look so awesome and am planning to give this card to a friend who's getting married next year.



To make it more festive I added a bunch of rhinestones and clear open ring confetti to mimic the champagne bubbles.

And, finally last but not least am featuring Spellbinders' December Stitching Die Club kit,




I really liking dark color background more and more now. I also like the playfulness of the whimsical flowers.

I hope you enjoy today's projects and stay tune for a fun blog hop coming up on December 8th. You don't want to miss this inspiration galore! Take care everyone.
