Thanks

Hello, I am back today with one more card featuring the new Spellbinder’s release called Floral Reflection. I certainly hope you are not growing weary of this set, as I certainly am having a ton of fun with it. I think this is such a wonderful color combo. Cream, Taupe, and Red. Below I have all the details and links on how this card came together!

Sealed Wildflowers

Outlined Sentiments

Truckin Through the Seasons

Spellbinders 6

Card Details: I first cut out all the flowers and stems and got them ready to go. Next, I decided I wanted to make this a Thank you Card so I go out the set called Outlined Sentiments, as I knew it had the word thanks in it. Although I did something a bit different with my word die. I took the word die and the outline die and cut them out together instead of using the shadow die in a different color that’s typically done and so common. What happens is, you get a perfectly outlined die cut instead. I hope that makes sense to you. I decided to make a pocket to hide the stems and to give a base for the greeting. The gold bow is found in the Spellbinders Truckin Through the Seasons set.

I certainly hope you are having a wonderful day. Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

Matching Envelope

Hello, It’s Saturday and time for Trend Week at Just Us Girls. Lisa K is our wonderful hostess and she has an easy and fun idea for us and hopefully you too. She wants us to make a matching envelope for our card. I told you it was easy! Great idea, Lisa!

When I started thinking about what I wanted to do for this challenge and knew I would combine this post with the latest Spellbinders release, the idea came to me instantly. Why not emboss the envelope with this amazing Flower Frenzy Embossing Folder! This turned out even better than I thought it would. This card might be hand delivered, as I wouldn’t want it to get messed up in the mail.

I don’t think this card needs any more details given as it is all really straightforward. I have all the products listed below.

Let’s Celebrate

Hello, I am back today with another card using Spellbinder’s new release called Floral Reflection. Today I have used the Sealed Wildflowers along with some Fluted Rectangles to make my opening. When I was preparing to make my card and already knew what the layout was going to be, I went looking for a color combination that was a little bit more daring and unusual, and let me say I think this color combo is just that. Then the copper-colored sparkly paper really made this card come to life.

Noel Etched Dies

Card Details: I cut out my rectangle opening and then decided to line it with strips of copper paper. I cut the maroon cardstock a bit short on purpose and used my old Fiskers Victorian edge cutter to make the decorative bottom at the base of the card. I die-cut all my stems and flowers and tucked them inside the opening. The sentiment is stamped in matching ink from SU and backed with a strip of copper paper and dimensionals. I used my favorite holly die in the Spellbinder’s Noel die set to make my copper paper dots.

I certainly hope you are having a wonderful day. Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

I have put away the Halloween stamps and instead, I have a quick Christmas card using a darling Santa from Spellbinders and some fun DSP. He looks like the real deal, doesn’t he? I just love him with his sparkly eyebrows and hat. By the way he is on sale right now, if you want to go and check him out.

Fall is in the Air

Hello, I hope you are having a good week so far. I have had this cute little Fall Gnome set from Spellbinders for about a month now and it was past time that I inked him up. The set is absolutely darling and has so many cute stamps included. I recently realized that Fall themed stamps are probably what I have the least of, so I am very pleased to add this set to my collection!

The weather has been so much cooler here post-Hurricane Ian and we are enjoying our morning and evening walks so much. In fact, near the end of this week, we are supposed to have highs in the 70’s, so Fall is showing itself a bit even here in Florida.

After I stamped, colored, and die cut these darling images, I decided to get out my MFT Watercolored Wash Rectangle to make a background for Mr. Gnome. In order to make the gap in the sky and the grass I shorten the stencil using the positive piece that comes in the set. Then I remove the stencil, make a gap, and finish inking the bottom using Oxide inks once again. For my mediums I have mostly used Copics with a bit of Prisma Colored Pencils for detail, especially for his beard.

Here is a pic to help you understand what I did with the stencil.

I am playing along with Addicted to Stamps and More for their Die Cut and Stencil Challenge.

I hope you have a wonderful day and get a chance to do something that brings you Joy! Your visits certainly bring me JOY as well!

Take care, Nanc’

Hello

Hi, I hope you are having a good week so far. Today’s card has been waiting in the wings as I wanted to wait till the die set got re-released over at Spellbinders. Initially, it was the August Small Die of the Month Club but now it’s back for purchase for all. It is called Outlined Sentiments but also has darling florals and leaves in the set as well. This set was not gifted to me, I purchased it. I have it pictured below along with affiliate links.

Outlined Sentiments

Classic Scalloped Circles

Spellbinders 6

Card Details: I used strips of paper for my background and built my card from there. I thought if I outlined the flowers and leaves just a little with a gold pen, it would tie in with the sentiment and floral centers perfectly. I used vellum as my shadow on the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day and you get to get a little crafty, Nanc’

Winter Cheer Shaker

Hello, I am back with another Christmas card using the Dancin Deer from Spellbinders, but this time she isn’t dancing she is actually shaking. Well, at least the background is anyway. LOL If you are a regular here on my blog you know I don’t make shakers too often. They intimidate me and I have no idea why as they really aren’t that hard. I have so many sequins and bling in my stash that I really should just get over it and start using them up. LOL. My cute little dear is not inside the shaker she is tucked and glued down in front of the acetate and I just love how this turned out. I have affiliate links to these products below.

Dancin Deer

Tinsel Time Sentiments

Festive Noel

Spellbinders 6

Card Details: First I sponged my cream card-stock to get the perfect tone of brown I wanted for the deer. Then I went searching for a color combo and came across this great SU DSP. I knew I was going to stick a few of the snowflakes on this card as well from the Festive Noel set along with my greeting so I cut those out in complimentary colors. The Tinsel Time Sentiments have really come in handy with all of these cards. Next, it was finally time to make the shaker element and put this card together.

If shakers aren’t your thing I found a really simple video HERE by Amy R that helped me with a refresher course.

I am also linking up once again over at Simon Says Stamps as they are featuring a Christmas theme and Spellbinder products.

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share some more cards featuring Spellbinder’s darling new products with you! I hope you have had or are having a wonderfully creative day, Nanc’

Hello

Hello, When I got back from vacation I had the Spellbinders Small Die of the Month called Outlined Sentiments waiting for me. So on Wednesday, I decided it was time to get back in the studio and get creative again. I don’t know about you, but after a vacation, it always takes me a week or so to get back in the groove. I was under the weather at the end of my vacation (it started on my birthday-bummer) so that didn’t help. I thought for sure it was Covid but I tested negative a few times, so that was good. I feel much better now. In addition, I am always a bit sad about leaving my son and daughter-in-law after we’ve had so much fun together. My son wants us to move to California. I wish that was possible, but highly unlikely unless I win or even start playing the lottery. LOL Although, I guess never say never!

For my CAS card, I am playing along with two of my favorite challenges; Freshly Made and The Paper Players.

Card details: Spellbinders small die of the month-Outlined Sentiments. I also used a small piece from a cover plate called Lattice from Whimsy Stamps to make my square center to go with the sketch.

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have or have had a wonderful day, Nanc’

Tinsel Time

Hello, I am back again today with another Christmas card using the train and sentiments that are part of the Tinsel Time Collection. from Spellbinders. I hope you are enjoying seeing all my Christmas in August cards as much as I am enjoying making them. The tiny ornaments/bows and presents are also such a great addition to this set!

I thought about this card the longest as I wanted to do something a bit unexpected with the train. I think the cream and silver look so elegant together and I love the way it turned out. The piece of striped vellum I found in my stash was the final key that helped pull this card together.

Holiday Express Etched Dies

Tinsel Time Sentiments

Spellbinders 6

Card Details: The darling train and cute ornaments and gifts are called the Holiday Express Etched Dies. The Tinsel Time greeting can be found in the Tinsel Time Sentiments set. I used a snowflake embossing folder from SU for the top of my card. The striped vellum I have had in my stash for eons and is also from SU. I used a strip of mirrored paper to divide my panels. The train engine window has a piece of vellum over it. The glitter paper really made this card come to life as well. I have dimensionals under my greeting.

Over at Simon Says Stamps they have a challenge starting today that is Christmas and they also are featuring Spellbinders products too. I will be linking my train up over there as well.

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