This Card is Full of Hugs

Hello, I am back today with one more card using some of the latest new products from Spellbinders. What I have used today is this great phrase This Card is Full of Hugs from the Glimmer Hot Foil Sentiments Collection. I know it will be getting a lot of use as I love to send out these types of cards. There are a total of 6 fun bold sayings in this collection. If you want to see the others, I have all the May arrivals linked for you below along with the particular supplies I used for this card as well.

The color foil I used for my phrase is in the Satin Variety Pack and the color is mint. Isn’t it so pretty? I decided to use the same color palette for my flowers.

I paired the wonderful phrase with a couple of other Spellbinders products; the floral set is called Glimmer Edge Flowers and is brand new to me. FYI…It is on sale for 1/2 price currently! The background panel is called Geometric Optical and is one of my best past purchases as well.

If you look closely at my card you will notice that the leaves on the flowers have a fine line of foil comparatively to the thick line on the flowers, that is because I chose to foil all the dies that came in the set and not just the ones that were designated for foiling. I love stretching my products and this has opened up so many other possibilities with all the die cuts I own. I know I am usually behind the eight ball when it comes to trying new things, but have you tried foiling other dies that were not intended for that purpose? I can’t wait to do more!

I am going to link up this card with Darnell over at NBUS as two of the three products I used are brand new to me.

I certainly appreciate you stopping by! It has taken me an entire day to write this post as my Vertigo won’t go away and computer work makes it much worse, so I only do a bit at a time. However, the trip was totally worth it!

Take care, Nanc’



Hello, I am back with one more card for today and my second entry over at Sunday Stamps. I love the colors of their graphic so much that I wanted to make one more card before it closed.

Card Details: My dear friend gave me this card below about a year or so ago and it is displayed in my studio along with so many others of hers and friends I have made along this great journey I feel blessed to be on. I have been wanting to CASE her card for quite some time and I don’t own any stitched dies, as of yet, so I used Kelly Alpha dies from Pink Fresh Studio. The flowers are from Spellbinders in the Parcel Post set. The sentiment is from MFT. The banner dies are from Pink and Main. The background die is from Sunny Studios and is called Frilly Frames.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day! Nanc’
