Hello, I hope you are doing well today. I have another card for you using three fun Spellbinder products. As you know I am a bit hooked on the Gingko die but let me tell you that this Embossing Folder is something special too. It is called Loops and it is so pretty, especially in white. It just so happens to be 1/2 price right now! The sentiment die is also linked for you below and I find myself reaching for it time and time again, that there is no point putting it away.

Card Details: I was inspired by the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches to begin my card, and I am so glad the chores were done and I had time to play along. As you may have noticed I sponged my paper with various colors of Oxide inks before die-cutting, I did the same with the outline to the sentiment. Added a few gems and I was done. Easy peasy!

Thanks for coming by and I hope however you spend the rest of your week, you do something that brings you joy! Nanc’

Hello, I am back today with an elegant looking Thank you card using part of the Sealed Collection release over at Spellbinders. I told you a few posts ago that I was smitten with the Gingko die in this collection, so here it is once again. This time I used the Thanks from the Spellbinders Truckin Through the Seasons for my sentiment. I seem to be in a use-up some DSP that you have in your stash kinda mood lately and this paper is just gorgeous. I don’t think you can tell but it’s covered in cream, tan, and taupe roses. I got it at my local scrapbooking store ages ago and sadly don’t know whose it is. Also, pretty proud of myself for tying a decent bow, if you know me that is certainly not something I am good at.

I don’t think this card needs much explaining, and I have all supplies linked down below!

Hope Your Day is Special

Happy Friday! I have another Spellbinders card for you today that is also part of their latest Sealed Collection. This time I am using the Sealed Birds Die. I know this die will be getting lots of use as it would make a great card for nearly any occasion. The size is just darling and I love the two tiny birds perched on the branch. Lucky for me, I found this awesome piece of DSP in my stash that paired nicely with the die. Love when you stumble upon something you didn’t even remember you had, don’t you?

I have linked all the products I have used on this card below along with some details.

Many Birthdays

Fluted Classic Ovals

Spellbinders 6

Card Details: I used the Fluted Oval dies to cut out the hole to make my vellum window. Then decided at the last minute to incorporate the soft blue on the inside of my oval as a double mat. I know there is a better way to do this but I had already glued my vellum in place so if you look closely at the photo you can see that the blue oval is not perfectly placed inside the oval. Grrrrr. It will just have to do. The DSP is from an old Stampin Up pack. I decided that one solid leaf color die was just a tad on the boring side, so I cut another one out in a deeper green and fussy cut the leaves off and glued them down for contrast. The sentiment is from the Many Birthdays set and is stamped and matted as well and popped up with fun foam.

I hope you have a wonderful day and weekend ahead! Take care, Nanc’

For You

Hello, I am here today with a card showcasing some more new products from Spellbinders. This release is called the Sealed Collection and has a ton of amazing products encompassing it. As I was looking through the collection I immediately fell in love with this Ginkgo die-cut. I just love all the intricate etching.

Did you know that the Ginkgo plant has a long history of use in treating blood disorders and memory issues? It is also an antioxidant. I find things like this so fascinating.

This card is pretty straightforward and doesn’t need much explanation.

Here are a few details. My first thought was to make a stencil out of the die and that didn’t go so well, so onto plan B. Next, I thought it might be fun to offset this die and I think it worked out quite well. I decided I would incorporate a few falling pedals in white for some contrast. Then when it was time for the sentiment, I chose the outlined greeting set from Spellbinders and one I reach for a lot now. I have everything linked for you below. A few black rhinestones, silver paper dots, and ribbon finished it off.

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!

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.

For Someone Special

Hello, I am thrilled to be back today with a slimline card using some of the latest items from the new release from Spellbinders. This release is called Floral Reflection and as you might imagine is full of all things Floral, but tons of other things as well; Foil products, embossing folders, shaped dies, and so much more. I have linked it up for you above and below as well, you should definitely check it out.

Here is a close-up for you!

What I love about this new embossing folder, is that it’s about 5 x 8 and perfect for slimline cards. Once I had my background embossed and my circle base cut out, all I had to do was cut out all my flowers and stems. I just love all things Kraft and I think this color combo is really pretty. The sentiment is Spellbinders as well and in the Many Birthdays stamp set. It has been heat-embossed in gold. Last, after I tied my twine (which is actually embroidered floss), I took some more gold centers from the flowers and added them to the centers of the flowers on the embossing folder.

*Note the Embossing Folder is very thick and large and works best with Spellbinders Universal Plate System.

Hello, It’s Color Week at Just Us Girls and Lisa K is our fabulous hostess. She has picked a color combo that looks wonderful together, at least in my opinion. Once I figured out what I wanted to do with this trio, I had a grand time putting my card together.

Card Details: Spellbinders Truckin Through the Seasons, Ellen Hutson-All Inside-Bear, and Cute Clouds are from MFT. I sponged the background with Oxide Inks. The bottom strips are just paper.

Now, head on over to Just Us Girls and have a look at my team’s fabulous cards and our guest-Lynne, I know you will be inspired! Take care, Nanc’

This post was written before Hurricane Ian! I have no power and No internet hope to be back up and running soon! Hugs to everyone and those poor people who lost everything and more! Take care!

Card Details: I have had this die from Spellbinders for quite some time and it’s the first time I have shared a card that I made with you. It also so happens to be on sale right now so you can find it linked below.

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’
