Spellbinders Layered Windmill Quilt Cards

Hi crafty friends! I have a couple cards to share featuring Spellbinders and Becca Feeken's Home Sweet Quilt Collection. All the supplies I used are listed and linked below. Here is what I created:

I made a couple top folding 5.5"x 5.5" cards to showcase the new Layered Windmill Etched Dies. The die set measures 5 inches across and you can even create a shaped card if you wanted. I decided to go with a square shape.

I absolutely LOVE these quilt dies! They really give you the opportunity to use the patterned papers in your stash and if you're like me, you might have a ton of it! I chose this floral pattern from a 6x6 inch paper pad in my stash and also chose some coordinating cardstock and cut them out. 

For my first card I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the new Quilty Hugs Sentiments Clear Stamps using gold embossing powder. I cut it out using the banner die that is included in the More Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plates and popped it up with foam tape. I used the new Orange Peel Quilt 3D Embossing Folder for the background layer. These 3D folders are amazing! The little flowers that I added are from the Wreath Builder Dies. I cut the flower centers out with the Mirror Gold Cardstock.

For my second card I cut a five inch square of patterned paper from that same paper pad as the florals and adhered the quilt onto it. I stamped and embossed the Quilty Hugs sentiment and hand cut a fishtail banner. I also embellished with some of the little flower dies with gold centers.

I hope you like my cards and will check out these amazing dies! There is also a fantastic sale going on at Spellbinders right now. Have a great day!

Spellbinders Patchwork Petals

Hello crafty friends! Here are the last of my Christmas cards for 2022! I had so many plans to create with the amazing products that I purchased this year and as usual, I ran out of time. However, I am considering participating in the Christmas year round challenges in 2023 that some of my crafty friends did this past year.

This card set was so much FUN to create!! I used the new Spellbinders Patchwork Petals Etched Dies by Becca Feeken. The entire collection is amazing and I have many more upcoming projects to share using some of  her dies. All the supplies I used are linked and listed below :)

For all four cards I used the same patterned paper pack from my stash. It's the DCWV Winter Frost 6"x6" mini stack. I cut out the papers with the patterned die four times. I also cut it out in white card stock and blue cardstock. Then like a puzzle, I glued all the pieces and adhered them to the square die cut included with the set. The papers have silver foil accents that I coordinated with the Glimmer Hot Foil- Silver for the sentiment and the Mirror Silver Cardstock.

For the first two cards I chose the bird from the Sweet Birdie die set. The pine branches are from the Holiday Blooms and the sparkly leaves are from the Sealed Wild Flowers Etched Dies.

The sentiment is from the Glitter Wishes Hot Foil Plates and the Glimmer Hot Foil- Silver. I thought the sentiment worked our PERFECTLY!! The poinsettias and holly leaves are also from the Holiday Blooms dies.

For a finishing touch I added some bling using the Teal Color Essential Gems. I like how the die cuts add dimension but not bulk so these will be easy to mail. I hope you like my cards!

Get Into the Holiday Spirit!

Hi crafty friends! I have a fun cocktail themed Christmas card to share featuring Newton's Nook Design's adorable Christmas Cocktails stamps and coordinating Dies.

This was a fun card to create. I colored up the little drink images using Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies. To create the background I taped the edges across the card and ink blended using Distress Oxide Inks in Worn Lipstick, Kitsch Flamingo and Spun Sugar. 

Next, I used the Snowfall stencil with some texture paste and let it dry. I stamped and embossed the sentiment and for a finishing touch I added some bling. The supplies I used are listed and linked below. I hope you all are enjoying the holiday season.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

May Your Christmas Be Furry & Bright

Hi crafty friends! I have a Christmas card to share featuring the amazing new Essential Hearts dies and the Essential Solid Heart Glimmer Hot Foil Plate from Spellbinders. I was hoping they would come out with the heart shape in their collection! 

Hearts are not just for Valentine's Day and can be used in a Christmas design as well! I used the red foil from the Holiday Blooms Etched Dies for this card. It looks even prettier in person! The florals are from the Holiday Blooms Etched Dies. I used the Mirror Gold Cardstock for one of the branches and embossed the sentiment using gold embossing powder to coordinate with it. I then added the gold gems to the center of the poinsettia. 

I also used the adorable pup from the Christmas Pups Clear Stamps and colored him using Copic markers. The background was created using the Ski Lodge Embossing Folder for an extra festive touch!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you like my card. The supplies I used are listed below. I hope you have a great day :)

Deck the Halls With Inky Paws Blog Hop

Hi crafty friends! It is time for the annual Deck the Halls with Inky Paws blog hop! I am a huge fan of all the Newton's Nook critters and one of my favorite Christmas sets is the Christmas Puppies. I love how the patterned papers coordinate with the stamps and make super easy backgrounds.

I stamped and colored the adorable pup using Copic markers. There are coordinating dies that go with this stamp set. I chose colors that matched with the Christmas lights on the patterned paper from the Christmas Time Paper Pad

I cut the rectangle from the Frames & Flags Die Set set and stamped and embossed a sentiment from the A Kitten Christmas stamps. To help the pup stand out I ink blended a light blue patch and popped him up on some foam tape. It's hard to see in the photo but I added sparkle marker to the lights and then for a finishing touch I added some bling around the sentiment. The supplies I used are listed below and there is a special sale at the shop through December 11th!
