Spellbinders May Large Die and 3D Embossing Folder of the Month Clubs…

Hi everyone!  Time to introduce new clubs over at Spellbinders papercrafts!  It’s all about birthdays this time and boy they come around faster and faster these days! haha

A really fun 3D embossing folder that my photos don’t do it justice!  Getting used to a season change and light with photos again.

The die set has so many dies! You can make the banner as many levels as you want!  I was thinking the banner would be great for graduation cards too! Glossy Black!  Gold!  Silver! Besides the Happy Birthday To You words, there’s Wishes, Enclosed and Sending.  FUN!

Then there’s balloons and flowers!  Both would be great for any occasion and in any colors!

Also a great way to use up scraps! My card is an A7 size but would easy work for A2 or A6 also!

I’m getting excited about making grad cards now that I’m thinking and talking about it.  You could personalize it with alphabet dies or stamps with the name and year too!

thank you so much for stopping by!

My first card for today will make you laugh…brrring brrring



I do! lol

I love this sentiment from Printworks and use it anytime I use a telephone!  This adorable telephone image and the floral background stamp are NEW and also from Printworks.  I embossed the telephone and the flowers (multiple times) with white pigment ink and Tsukineko’s Imagine White Embossing Powder.  The sentiment is stamped with black pigment ink and embossed with Tsukineko’s Imagine Black Embossing Powder.  I die cut the sentiment with a die from Lawn Fawn.

I used Printworks stamp pads for watercoloring the white embossed flowers (watercolor paper).  Go back in time…the first CHA type show I went to was in 1995.  Printworks was there teaching Annette’s (the owner and artist) watercolor techniques.  She introduced using stamp pads for watercolor way back then! It’s stood the test of time for sure!

What can I say that I haven’t said a million times about the Perfect Paper Crafting Layering Tools!  They are the BEST!  I Love these tools!  I didn’t think there would be any room for improvement but I love the mini tools and mat more!  I’m glad I have both sets though because today I needed to use the one inch ruler that just comes in the long ruler size.

It’s so nice to get the professional look of even borders along with the charm of a handmade card.  Use Sparks 5% off at checkout to get 5% off your PPC order!  Thank you for clicking through my links.

What did I use from Xyron?  Well, they have this awesome Mega Tape Runner… looks like this…


wow!  It’s great!  It dispenses permanent adhesive dots and is refillable.  So easy to operate too… not too big and not small either!  It just works!  YAY!  I used this to put most of my layers together.

I adhered the telephone panel to the white embossed panel with Xyron ¼ in. High Tack Double Sided Tape…


and the sequins with Xyron High Tack Adhesive Dots…perfect!


My next two cards are wedding cards…



Here I used the Perfect Layers Mini Tools and Mat to cut my card base.  I scored and folded a sheet of 8.5×11 card-stock, then adhered my main panel to the folded card base with the Xyron Mega Tape Runner, then used my mini tool to cut the border on the other three sides.

I used the Xyron Mega Tape Runner to adhere the Studio Calico wood veneer potty people to the circle too!  Yep, they stick great!  I was able to rub away any excess before I stuck them down, so easy because it’s dot adhesive. (looks like the wood veneer potty people have been discontinued)

My inspiration for this card came from Maile Belles’ card HERE.

I partial die cut a circle and then die cut two complete circles for the layers.


Another fun wedding card using a Memory Box border die, Printworks stamps, wood Potty People and a Doodlebug red heart embellishment.

Again I used my Perfect Layers tool to cut the three sides of my card base and the Xyron Mega Tape Runner to adhere the layers and the potty people.

Wonderful tools!  Wonderful adhesives!  Thank you PPC and Xyron!

Your next stop is Jenny’s blog! Enjoy the hop, be inspired and I hope you win!

CAS – Printworks Two Lives…One Beautiful Future

Today I have a card for the CAS-ual Friday Challenge blog… have a heart on it and Charisma Cardz Challenge blog…Clean and Simple!  When I saw these ‘potty people’,  I just had to have them!  I want to call them ‘restroom’ people though… that’s how straight laced I am! lol  But why do we call bathrooms, restrooms?   No thank you,  I’ll rest somewhere else! lol  I love how they worked out for this wedding card!  The teeny heart came from the Memory Box Cherish Border die.

and the inside… I emailed Nicole to get the link for the ‘Long Life’ stamp…

I love Printworks scripture stamps… ok… I love all of Printworks stamps!  Love Annette’s handwritten sentiments… so fun, when so much is computer generated anymore.

Thanks for looking!  I’ll be back tomorrow with my card for Tilda’s Town Challenges!

I’m so excited and honored to be a new member of the Marianne Design World Design Team! I love to be challenged and using her dies, stamps and supplies to create with is going to be great fun! So….here’s hoping I can inspire and challenge you at the same time!

Today I’m posting two cards. A Clean and Simple card with the new tree Creatables die LR0203 from the January release.  I LOVE scene dies! = )  I wish I hadn’t used such dark brown card-stock …if you watch the video you’ll see the detail of the die better! The sentiment stamp is C2398 from Printworks.

Here’s a video to show how I layered the tree.

Then my second card is a Don and Daisy stamp from Marianne Design that I colored and matted on a Marianne Design Craftables Rectangle die set CR1202, the black dot ribbon is from Marianne Design and the Elegant Brocade stamp is from Hero Arts.  SOOOO CUTE!  Don is so sweet to carry Daisy over the threshold! hehe


They just make a gal smile!

a Love chair…

I needed a wedding card and I love Printworks stamps… so I started thinking and this is what I came up with! One of my favorite chair stamps, the name of it is “Made for Comfort”,  gotta love that!  Here’s another card  I made with it and a different Printworks sentiment.

the card base is a window card cut with an Accucut A7 convert a card die and the window  die….

I stamped the chair on Bazzill green card-stock three times, cut them out and layered them up… I added some copic shading with my sketch markers… love that! The heart I stamped six times, cut them out and layered them, three together to make them more like chipboard hearts/pillows!
