Twinkle Lights Christmas Card | Spellbinders Small Die of the Month September | Hello & Thank You

Hello & Welcome! I have a short but sweet blog post today showing Spellbinders’ Small Die of the Month Kit for September. It is called Hello & Thank You! There are 18 cutting dies in this set, and as usual, it’s a very cute and well thought out set.

The cardstock and pattern paper I used to create this card are from the September Card Kit of the Month. I glued my diamond shaped wreath together before I adhered it onto the front of my card. One of the small dies cuts out the little white flowers you see in my tray below. They looked like Christmas bulbs to me, so that’s how I used them.

I colored in the bulbs with Copic markers. Copic Markers: RV06, YR04, YG13, G07, B24

I attached the bulbs to the little stems that look like a lot like the string on Christmas lights. After they were all in place, I added glossy accents over them. This really made them look like twinkle lights. I put my card aside to dry for about an hour.

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

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful week!

Spellbinders August Club Kits and Fun Stampers Journey Craft Happy Set

Hello crafty friends! I have a few projects to share with you! I’m crafting with Spellbinders August Card Kit, their Small Die of the Month and a darling stamp & die bundle from Fun Stampers Journey called Craft Happy.

The first three cards I created using the August Card Kit. It’s called Around the World, and it’s all about vacations and relaxation. To create card number 4 I used the Small Die of the Month, and on card number 5 I used a new stamp and die set from Fun Stampers Journey.

Card 1: Relax with Fruity Drinks and Popsicles Card

I loved the paper pad that came in this kit. The designs are fabulous. On my first carded I used this happy looking paper paper from the pad Around the World. I also used a lot of cute die cut shapes from the kit.

Card #2: Happy Journey Card

I used another piece of pattern paper for my next card. I love stripes. I also used several die cut shapes and colored them in with colored pencils. I also colored the stripes behind my sentiment pink to help make the sentiment die cut shape stand out a little more. I stamped the word happy with red ink to make it pop.

Card #3: Staycation Card

This has been my vacation this year–a staycation. I didn’t travel anywhere with my family because of the pandemic. However, like this card says, “I heart here!” Home is one of my favorite places to be. Give me home and family and books (and crafting supplies) and I’m a happy camper. I let my books take me to exotic locations this year.

Card #4: A Little Note Card

I used the Small Die of the Month to create this card. The set is called Sitting Pretty. I cut out the dies with several shades of pink cardstock. I glued the shapes onto a gray panel. I used the inlay technique to add pink cardstock inside the die cuts. This set is fun because you can create your own sentiment with this alphabet die set. I love all occasion cards, so I simply spelled out “Hi” and “A Little Note.”

Below you’ll see what exactly these little dies look like. They are very ornamental and pretty.

Card #5: Creativity is Messy Card

On card #5 I’m using a new Fun Stampers Journey stamp and die bundle called Craft Happy. I love the stamps in this set and the pretty lime green coordinating dies. I stamped the paint tube stamp onto pieces of colored cardstock. I used the coordinating die to cut them out. I used Copic markers to add a little bit of detail to each tube. This is a very simple card, but I love how it turned out. There is so much you can do with this darling set!

Here is a look at the stamp set as well as the coordinating dies. I love that they’re lime green!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Note Card Set | Spellbinders Small Die of the Month July | Ornamental Floral Card Creator

Note Card Set

Hello everyone! I created a set of note cards using the Small Die of the Month from Spellbinders. It’s great to have non-occasion cards in your stash that you can grab and send out to friends anytime. The set includes four beautiful dies, and the first thing I thought of when I saw them was stained-glass windows. It’s called Ornamental Floral Card Creator.

Image38 The largest of the dies cuts out a beautiful, delicate frame. I die cut everything with white cardstock so you could see it clearly. The blue cardstock is cut to a standard A2 sized panel, 5.50 by 4.25. The frame reaches to the edge of the panel.

 

Image2

The other three dies cut out gorgeous flowers.

Image3

Card #1: Stained Glass Window Note Card

For my first card cut out these images with many different colors of cardstock and paper-pieced them back into the black frame and the white flower outline.

Card 1 redo

Card #2: Delicate Purple Flower Card

I used some pattern paper from Spellbinders and allowed that to do most of my work for me. The paper pad is called Express Yourself. This was a fast and easy card to create. I cut out my flower image with white, purple  and green cardstock. I used the white for the frame and the flower outline, and then I paper-pieced the purple and green cardstock inside the flower outline.

Card 2 redo

Card #3: Partial Paper-Pieced Card

I used more Spellbinders Cardstock for this card. This pattern comes from the paper pad called Weekend Fun. I cut the dies with gold cardstock this time and popped in pieces here and there. I love the touch of gold.

Card 3 redo

Card #4: Copic Colored Card

This time I only cut out the dies with black cardstock. I used Copic markers to quickly color in each of the frames. I added some Nuvo drops around my flower and that was it!

Card 4 redo

Card #5: Rainbow Smiles Card

Here’s another piece of gorgeous Spellbinders pattern paper. This pattern if from the pad Life is a Party. I cut out the flowers with white cardstock and glued them flat onto my card. I stamped out a sentiment from July’s Card Kit and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Card 5 redo

Thank you for visiting my blog! Have a lovely day!

Floral Birthday Card | Spellbinders June Small Die of the Month | Handing You A Smile

Hello everyone! Today I’m crafting with Spellbinders’ Small Die of the Month for June. This set is called, “Handing You A Smile.” There are 13 cutting dies in this set, and you can create lots of beautiful flowers. It also includes a hand shape and the shadow for it. This is such a unique set–I love how you can place the flowers in the hand die-cut.

Card 1

All of the cardstock I used for this card came from leftover paper from Spellbinders’ Card Kits of the Month. I had so much fun putting these flowers together! You can mix and match all the die cut pieces. My favorite flower is the one that cuts line details into the paper. When you put it together, you see the side view. I cut these dies out with two different pink cardstocks. The petal in front I popped up with a foam square to give it some cute dimension.

I wanted to add more interest to this birthday card by cutting up some blue and green cardstock into panels and popping them up with foam squares onto a piece of navy cardstock. I made sure that the navy cardstock matted each panel. I stamped my sentiment on one panel, I place the hand on the second panel and glued the flowers on the last two. I made sure to use pale colors behind my flowers so they wouldn’t compete for attention–I wanted the flowers to be the star of the show.

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

Thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful day!!

Spellbinders Small Die of the Month for May

Welcome! Today I’m playing with Spellbinders Small Die of the Month for May. It consists of eight cutting dies in all, and they coordinate together to make some quick and gorgeously detailed cards.

Spellbinders May Small Die of the Month THUMB

One of the dies cuts out a thank you sentiment. There is also a rectangle die that cuts out a cute thin frame around it. See the picture below.

BLog pic with logo

I used several of the cutting dies on a piece of white card stock. I really love the lattice frame die. Next, I ink blended some Distress Oxide inks onto a white card base. I used Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch. I let the ink dry completely before heat embossing a tiny sentiment at the bottom of the card.

I then used thin strips of foam tape behind my white panel and adhered it onto the card base. I used a few translucent dots on this card, and that’s it.

Wedding Card using Spellbinders Small Die of the Month | April 2020

Hello everyone! I’m crafting with Spellbinders Small Die of the Month for April, and I never had so much fun with a set of dies! This set of cutting dies is so well thought out. It was made to coordinate with another set called Truckin’ Though the Seasons. However, I used only the dies that came in this month’s set. There are 16 dies in all, and my favorites are the ones that make up this adorable diamond ring, and the bow that you can easily turn into a daisy. Oh, and the word dies are fabulous too!!

SmDieApril3Below you will see what the dies look like. You also get a heart balloon die with inserts that spell out the word, Just–as is Just Married. The sentiments in this set say Forever, Holidays, Married, and Happy. This set of dies is the 4th addition to a very popular series of dies. They are called, So Many Sentiments Etched Dies and Even More Sentiments Etched Dies, Truckin Through the Seasons.

SmDiesApril

With these dies you can also create Christmas cards. However, I needed more wedding cards for my stash, so that’s what I created. The picture below shows the shine of the metallic paper I used to cut out the ring dies. I also used silver glitter paper to cut out the diamond and a strip of paper down the side. This set was so much fun to play with!

SmDieApril2

Below you’ll see the darling truck dies from Truckin’ Through the Seasons. (I still need to pick this set up!)

And here are the word dies from Even More Sentiments Etched Dies.
