3 Cards using Hemstitch Slimline Dies | Spellbinders

Welcome crafty friends! I was so excited when I learned that Spellbinders was releasing Hemstitch Dies for slimline cards! I have a set of rectangle Hemstitch Dies, and I use them a lot. I created three cards with these dies, as well as other products from Spellbinders. I have all of the links to these products listed below.

Card One

I used the largest of the Hemstitch dies on my first card and cut it out with white cardstock. The stamp I used is called Field of Flowers, and I stamped it twice along this panel. I stamped it with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and pour over clear embossing powder. After I melted it, I blended on two of the new Distress Oxide Ink called Salvaged Patina and Kitsch Flamingo. I used Beeswax cardstock for the card base. I love how soft and pretty this birthday card turned out!

Card Two

My next card is another floral card. I used the largest and the medium Hemstitch dies for this one. I cut them out using Persimmon and Saffron cardstocks. The stamp set is called Block Prints. I inked this stamp up with VersaMark ink and used some colored embossing powder over them. The black panel comes from the smallest Hemstitch die, but I didn’t use the hemstitching on it. I cut out the sunflowers and popped them up with foam adhesive. This would be a perfect card to send out in the fall.

Card Three

This card is my favorite! I used the medium Hemstitch Die and the Small one. The floral dies comes from a darling set called Simply Perfect Layered Bloom Dies. I cut out a bunch of these using the gorgeous new cardstocks from Spellbinders and adhered them around the sentiment.

Below is my process video. Thank you for visiting my blog! Have a fun, crafty day!

Floral Cards, Scrappy Tails Crafts

Pattern Stamping Technique | Scrappy Tails Crafts | Popping Poppies

Hello crafty friends! There are a lot of gorgeous pattern papers on the market, and I’m sure we have plenty of it in our own personal stashes, but I still adore creating my own pattern paper cards. I’m using a beautiful stamp set from the Scrappy Tails Crafts Shop called Popping Poppies to create a set of stamped background cards.

I’m also using a fast and easy coloring technique with Distress Oxide Inks.

For all three cards I chose a stamp from the set and stamped it several times across a piece of colored cardstock. I used VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. Once I was done stamping, I poured some clear embossing powder over the images and melted them with a heat tool. Heat embossing your images ensure that when you add the Distress Inks over the flowers, you won’t obscure or smear your lines.

I love the sentiments in this set! To really make them pop off the fronts of my cards, I stamped them on Onyx black cardstock and used white embossing powder.

Card 1

On the first card I used a piece of Persimmon cardstock from Spellbinders. I used Crackling Campfire and Crushed Olive Distress oxide inks and some make up brushes to add some color to the flowers.

Card 2

The cardstock I used on my second card is called Saffron. I used Kitsch Flamingo and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks.

Card 3

For card three I used Poppy Field cardstock and Unicorn White Pigment Ink.

Here is my process video:

I hope you have a wonderful & crafty weekend!!

Stitched Cards | Spellbinders Large Die Club – May

Have you ever tried embroidering on paper? It is a lot of fun and super easy to do–especially with the Spellbinders Large Die Club for May. This die set is called Stitched Card Front, Border and Flower. I also used the Clear Stamp of the Month for my sentiment on this card. I love how big and bold it is.

I used the flower strip dies to cut a diagonal across a white panel. I chose three hues of pink and started embroidering. I taped the ends of the strings down with double sided adhesive. Before I started embroidering the large flower die cut, I glued two of them together to give it some stability.

I had a hard time deciding if I wanted to use Dahlia pink or Cosmic Sky cardstock, so I created two cards. I heat embossed the sentiment with detail white embossing powder. I popped up the white embroidered panel with foam tape. The large flowers and leaves I added to the white panel with micro dots.

I still can’t decide which card I like better. I will definitely be creating more cards with this clever set.

Below is my process video. I hope you enjoy!

Have a lovely day, my friends!

Birthday Cards, Floral Cards, Spellbinders

Arched A2 & Slimline Card Creator | Spellbinders Small Die of the Month – May

Hello! I hope you are having a great start to your week. I get to show another of the Spellbinders club kits for May. This one is called Arched A2 & Slimline Card creator. I created an A2 size card, but I will definitely be using this to create a slimline card another time. There are 5 gorgeous dies in this set–perfect for the die cut inlay technique or just putting your die cuts on some pretty cardstock. I did both to this card.

I cut out the dies with white cardstock twice. I wanted to add a little more dimension on my card than one layer provides. I glued one down first onto a piece of Poppy Field cardstock, and then I did a little bit of die cut inlay. I cut out the domed piece with Beeswax cardstock, and then I was able to easily inlay the yellow triangles. This gave the card a pop of color. I also cut out the rectangle strip with Teal Topaz cardstock and pieced the polka dots back in. After I was done inlaying the pieces, I glued another white die cut on top.

I used the Simply Perfect Layered Blooms to cut out a flower and leaves to add to the top of the card. I turned this into a birthday card using the Clear Stamp of the Month for May. A silver bow and some teal gemstones added a pop of sparkle to the card.

Below you will find my process video:

Slimline Card Techniques with New Slimline Dies | Spellbinders | Slimline Collection

Hello everyone! I’m super excited to show you some new slimline products from Spellbinders. These dies are gorgeous! I created 2 cards using the Blossoming Slimline Dies and 1 card using the Flowering Slimline Dies. For the first two cards I used an inlay die technique and for the third card I simply added flower die cuts over the panel. No matter how you use these dies, the results is stunning. These are perfect for spring and summer card crafting.

I paired these slimline dies with additional Spellbinders products. I used the Simply Perfect Mix & Match Sentiments for the sentiments on my cards. I used the Small Die of the Month for March for the flower dies. They fit perfectly over the flowers in the Flowering Slimline die.

Here is my process video. You can watch it here of over on my YouTube channel in HD.

Floral Cards, Scrappy Tails Crafts, Watercolors

Easy Watercolor Die Cuts Technique | Scrappy Tails Crafts | Whimsical Layering Daisies

Hello, everyone! I have a really fast, fun watercolor technique to show you today, as well as some beautiful new products from Scrappy Tails Crafts. I’m creating with their new stand-alone die set called Whimsical Layering Daisies. For the sentiments I’m using the Oopsy Daisy stamp set. This is one of my favorite stamps sets so far this year because of the darling images and the clever sentiments.

Card One

To create all three cards I first started with some very simple watercoloring. I applied large swatches of color to the watercolor paper–making sure to leave lots of light and dark paint. The more dappled and variegated, the better. It was just fun doing some mindless watercoloring and seeing the pretty colors. I used two different purples, pinks, yellows and greens on each swatch.

Make sure to allow your paper to dry, and then you can die cut out all your flowers, stems and flower centers. You get so many different daisy dies in this set; you can really put together a beautiful bouquet!

To put these cards together, I used some fun cardstock from Spellbinders. The corrugated paper gives the cards an old-fashioned, rustic look. I used three different sentiments for each card and created a set. There were lots of flowers left over, so I used them to decorate the inside of the cards.

Easter/Spring Cards, Embossing Folders, Floral Cards, Spellbinders

Fun with Plaid | 3 Spring/Easter Cards | Spellbinders

Greetings, crafty friends. It’s officially spring, and I’m creating three more spring/Easter cards using one of the new embossing folders from Spellbinders. Each card features a different technique using the same cute plaid embossing folder. I love springtime plaid pattern paper, and with this embossing folder you can create your own.

Card 1: Simple Embossed Silver Background

On all three of these cards I’m using new cardstock from Spellbinders. I adore their new brushed silver and brushed gold cardstocks. I embossed a brushed silver panel and added some Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks over it. The eggs come from the Forever Spring Eggs Dies.

Card 2: Embossed White Frame

On card 2 I cut a rectangle from a piece of Snowdrift white cardstock, and then I embossed it. This created a cute frame for my flowers. The floral dies are from the Simply Perfect Layered Blooms set.

Card 3: Embossed Die Cut Easter Eggs

Card 3 is my favorite. I love how these eggs turned out when I embossed them with the plaid embossing folder. I then masked and blended ink over some of the stripes on the white egg to accentuate the plaid pattern. I also added ink to the pink and purple eggs before I embossed them.

Here is my process video. You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel in HD.

Floral Cards, Spellbinders, Watercolors

Wildflowers & Watercolors Card | Spellbinders | Watercolor Floral Collection

There is a new line of Watercolor Floral stamps in the Spellbinders’ shop, and today I’m creating with the set called, “Field of Flowers.” Of course, I had to pull out my watercolors to pair with this beautiful stamp. There are 6 different sets in this collection as well as a sentiment set, and they are all lovely.

First I heat embossed the image onto a piece of hot press watercolor paper using some black pigment ink and clear embossing powder. I love the look of the glossy, raised lines. You could skip this step and stamp it with waterproof ink. The ink I used is called VersFine Clair Nocturne ink, which is a waterproof ink and you can also emboss with it.

Next, I taped it down to a wooden board. I made sure to leave myself plenty of room around the stamped image to tape it down and to die cut it. I pulled out my Daniel Smith watercolors. I started at the bottom of the image with a dark green paint, then light green, then blue and lastly, pink and orange. After my first painting, I allowed it to air dry. The colors do dry back a lot more pale, so I added a second layer of paint.

Once, my second layer was dry, I came back in with lots of different colors to paint in the wildflowers. I didn’t add much water to the watercolors, so the paint went down highly pigmented.

I allowed that to dry, and then I die cut the panel with Spellbinders’ Rectangular Hemstitch dies. I used a piece of leftover watercolor paper to stamp the sentiment on and cut that out into a banner.

I popped up the watercolor panel with foam adhesive, as well as the sentiment. To add a little more interest, I added twine around the sentiment strip and water droplet beads around the panel.

Here is my process video. You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel in HD.

Floral Cards, Not 2 Shabby

Bouquet of Happiness Slimline Card | Not 2 Shabby Shop

I’m back with another card design for the Not 2 Shabby Shop. Today I’m using their new stamp set called Bouquet of Happiness. The stamp features some gorgeous begonias and some really cute sentiments. I decided to pull out some watercolors to color in these flowers. My color theme comes from Pantone’s two new colors for 2021: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating. Basically, the colors are gray and yellow.

I have a 10% off coupon code for the Not 2 Shabby Shop: N2S10 There are so many fun things to check out at the shop.

I used a piece of Arches hot press watercolor paper to emboss my images on using some VersaMark Ink and gold embossing powder. Then I pulled out my little set of Daniel Smith watercolors. I painted a flat wash of yellow, then started adding layers and shadows. After my work was dry, I used some colored pencils to add even more shading.

Next, I fussy cut my images leaving a white border around them. I used Trinity Stamps’ slimline die called Hip to Be Square to cut out a piece of yellow and gray cardstock. I then layered these two die cuts and adhered them to a piece of gray cardstock.

Finally, I attached my flowers to the card front with foam adhesive. I added a sentiment and some bubble beads to add some bling.

Floral Card Set | Spellbinders Clear Stamp of the Month | Trefoil Florals & Sentiments

Hello crafty friends! I have a very unique stamp set to show you today. I created a set of floral cards using Spellbinders Clear Stamp of the Month for February. This set is called Trefoil Florals & Sentiments. I had to look up what trefoil is and basically it’s a shape formed by the outline of 3 overlapping rings. It used in architecture. Inside these trefoil stamps are 4 different floral images–they’re so dainty and pretty! The set also includes a lot of sentiments.

Card #1: Red & White Roses Card

I started out by stamping the 4 different floral images several times. I colored them in with Gelly Roll Pens. For the white flowers I just added gray shadows with a Copic marker. After I finished all the coloring, I put the panels back in my Mini Misti and stamped them with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, and poured over some clear embossing powder. I melted the powder with my heat tool and the stamp lines turned glossy and slightly dimensional.

I fussy cut out all my images. If you get the Small Die of the Month for February, it includes a die that will cut these out–along with a new mini slimline die. I’m still waiting to get mine–I’m excited for this one!

All 4 of my card designs are basically the same. I popped all the trefoils up with foam tape and placed them in different arrangments on each card. I used bakers twine of each card as well.

Card #2: Hello Friend Card

Card #3: Just for You Card

Card #4: Sending Warm Thoughts Card

Wishing you all a wonderful, crafty day! Thanks for stopping by!
