Spellbinders Blooming Tree Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die Set Card…

Hi everyone!  I’m feeling festive on this second Friday of August already!  This is such a pretty hot foil plate set! Easy and fast to add some touches of color too!

I used the Plaid Tidings Background Glimmer Hot Foil Plate on the top layer.  While I was deciding what I was going to do for this card, I also just embossed this plate through my machine… it worked great!

After I foiled the Plaid, I die cut one of the Essential Arches Dies in the panel.  I used mounting tape to raise it up on the cardbase.

I hot foiled a sentiment from the Christmas Magic Glimmer Hot Foil Plate set.  I haven’t tried embossing these yet but I want to.  I hope it works!

The smallest die in the Precision Layering Mini Slimline B die set works perfect for cutting out these sentiments! YAY!

A2 size card…one more for the stash!

That’s all there is to it!  Holler if you have any questions!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Spellbinders Ice Skate Christmas Wishes Card…

Hello! Sharing some icy Christmas wishes today!  I know, I know… I don’t wanna think about that yet either!  It’s cooled off a little here but still…humidity means the corn is growing or drying out I guess. 

I loved ice skating when I was growing up.  There was a park in the city that closed a street for sledding and made a pond for ice skating.  My dad would take us a lot during the Winter…so fun!  

I die cut the NEW Ice Skate Etched die from Spellbinders in white cardstock two times.  In a woodgrain pattern paper for the sole and in silver cardstock for the blades. 

I have a bunch of ¼ in. grosgrain ribbon but none in white. boo.  I used the tan and tried not to sweat it! lol 

I used one of the branches from the NEW Winter Evergreen Foliage die set, die cut it 4 times, added some white acrylic molding paste and Memory Box Fairy Sugar Dewdrop liquid glitter glue on the tips of the branches.

Christmas Wishes is from the New Mix and Match Holiday Greetings die set.  I cut it in gold glitter cardstock and white cardstock, glued them together for a little more thickness, then glued directly to the cardbase.

I used the Kaleidoscope Snowflake set again for the three snowflakes. (I used them on the Winter Mailbox a couple posts back)

Almost done but missing that pop of red so I had to cut some ornament balls from the NEW More Holiday Decorations die set. Then I was happy and glued my 5×7 panel to an A7 size white cardbase.  

Die cutting and gluing again! I need to stamp something! lol

Stitched Ornament Merry and Bright Slimline Card…

Hi everyone!  It’s been some time since I used wool felt so I found my box and set to work die cutting and stitching up this new die from Spellbinders Stitched Christmas release.

I meant to make it as an ornament to hang on the tree but once again I forgot the plan and glued it to a card! lol

The pretty branches are part of the die set.

I used Knit Crosheen thread to for my stitching.  Taylored Expressions Tiffany and Avocado wool felt.

I used Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue to adhere the top and bottom avocado felt pieces.

My slimline card size is 3 ⅜ in x 8 ⅜ in.

I used Spellbinders new Mix and Match Holiday Greetings die set for the sentiment. I love this font!  There’s 18 word dies in the set!

Here’s a close up of just the ornament…so pretty!

I wish I could show you this one in person! It’s definitely a card to give to someone that will keep it and get it out for display each Christmas season. 

The tiny pearls are from starlitstudio.

Winter Garden Release Letterbox Card…

Special Delivery!  All the fun things of the season right there!  Snail mail, snowflakes, jingle bells and snow!

I went with a Mini Slimline Card for this one.  I used Spellbinders Precision Layering Mini Slimline A and B sets to cut my layers.  I really like these dies because they are heavier and hold the rectangle shape better than the thin silver ones do. I don’t like it when I die cut layers and they’re wonky!

I tore a piece of white cardstock for the mailbox to stand in (snowdrift) and die cut it with the same layer die as the blue background size.  I used Prize Ribbon Regular Distress Ink to ink up the background this time.  I spattered on some water droplets.  I like to spray water into the palm of my left hand, then I rub both my hands together so they’re both wet, then I clap over the inked background to spatter the water drops. I let it sit a minute, then lay a paper towel over it to get the extra water.

Then I spattered on some diluted white acrylic paint.

I die cut the mailbox post from woodgrain cardstock and the mailbox from silver mirror cardstock.

I die cut the sentiment from gold glitter cardstock and white cardstock, then glued the gold on top of the white.

The jingles bells and ‘garland’ are from the NEW More Holiday Decor die set.  I love how cute the little bow is on the super cute jingle bells I die cut in silver mirror cardstock also.

I love that there’s just enough dimension to add perspective.  It’ll still mail in an envelope for one stamp.

I used the thin mounting tape, I’ll link below, behind the mailbox post and box on this card and yesterdays.

Finished size is 3 ½ in. x 6 ½ in.   So happy to have a start on Christmas cards!  I can’t believe we’re half way through July! I need to get more done!

I’ll be back soon….we have to keep making!

Winter Garden Release in a Summer Way Card…

Hi everyone!  How fun is this NEW die set called Letterbox from Spellbinders Winter Garden Release!  I made it up in a Winter Scene card too but I think I’ll post it separately because I have so many pictures of this one.

I die cut everything and put them together before I adhered them to a Distress Oxide ink blended A2 size cardbase. I used Mowed Lawn and Tumbled Glass with a torn piece of copy paper to separate the sky and grass.

I used a NEW die set called Winter Evergreen Foliage behind the Be Bold flowers.

I love these sweet blooms with the mailbox!

The die cut sentiment is from the NEW Mix and Match Holiday Greetings Die set.  I die cut it twice in white cardstock, glued them together and glued them directly to the card.

I used woodgrain cardstock for the post and a matte silver metallic cardstock for the box.

I hope you like this as much as I do!  I’m anxious to show you the Winter version too!  ❤
