Sending Happiness {Spellbinders}...

 Have you jumped in to foiling yet?  If you haven't, this month would be a great one to start because the Spellbinders Glimmer Kit of the Month is AMAZING!  Check out the full kit....

The large oval shape is a full solid plate with LOTS of possibilities!  Then you have that gorgeous floral image that would be left solid or chose your favorite medium to color in the blooms.  It also comes with 2 sentiment plates and dies to cut them out.


Spellbinders


To create this card, I used Rose Gold Foil to add the large oval plate to a piece of white card stock.  Next, I used the Dazzling Dots Embossing Folder to add texture to that white card front.  Using the main floral image, I foiled black cardstock with silver foil and then added that to the card front with foam tape.  Last, I foiled the sentiment with silver and then added that to the card as well.  Lots of fun detail but a really simple to make card!


Spellbinders


Spellbinders has several different Monthly Kit options to choose from.  Click HERE to learn about the die kits, the Card kit and many more!

Are you new to hot foiling?


Spellbinders has a platform called Glimmer Hot Foil System.  This platform heats up metal plates called Glimmer Plates.  These glimmer plates come in ALL different types....sentiments, florals, backgrounds, graphic details etc....and add the most gorgeous foiling detail to your cards.  And the foils?  There are LOTS of different colors to chose from!


Here are some links to help point you in the right direction....






The Glimmer Hot Foil System works great with a Platinum 6 Die Cut machine from Spellbinders but also works with other die cut machines. You can click HERE to see a compatibility chart.  


First you heat up the platform and your glimmer plate on the Glimmer System Platform.  Then you add in the foil and the cardstock and run it thorough your die cut machine.  Once you pull off the foil negative, the magic happens!  That foil that is set on your cardstock and the results are just gorgeous!

Altenew August 2022 Bold & Beautiful Release Blog Hop


 
Hello friends!  Welcome to the Altenew's Bold and Beautiful Blog Hop!   Altenew has hit it out of the park again this month with some amazing new stamps and dies.  Click HERE to see today's full release!

To get started, I have a super clean and simple card using a set that may be a new favorite.  It is soooo pretty!  This set is called Arch of Flowers.  You can also purchase a coordinating stencil and there are coordinating dies!  Click HERE to see the full bundle.  

Altenew


To create this card, I first grabbed a white card base and added scoring every half inch on the full card front.  Next, I stamped and stenciled in the color to the arched image.  I just love those flowers!!


Altenew


For the sentiment, I used the new One-Go Birthday Sentiments.  It is one stamp full of sentiments with the perfect die to cut them all out at once.  Love that!  I heat embossed the full panel so now I have a little stash of sentiments for next time.  I added that sentiment banner across the bottom and then finished off the card with clear drop flower centers.

The Greetery Wild Elegance Collection...

Welcome to the full reveal of the latest release at The Greetery.  This release is called Wild Elegance and it is absolutely gorgeous and so fun to work with!  I have several cards to share using the new stamps, dies and stencils.  


First up the new Floral Arches Stamp and Stencil Set.  This new stamp set is absolutely beautiful!  It comes with a set of stencils to create the leaves and blooms and then a stamp set to add in the details. 


The Greetery


I used the newA2 Arches Die Set paired with an older set, Comforting Commands.  Super quick and easy!


I used the Floral Arches again for this next card and cut out the front with the largest Crimped Frame die.  I added the panel to a dark green card base and then die cut another of the Arches in a light green cardstock.  I used the new stamp set called Arched Sentiments, which fits right inside either the arch of the floral images or on the Arches Die cuts, and stamped the sentiment in brown ink.


The Greetery


The next 2 card showcase the new set called Sketched Wildflower Bouquet Stamp Set.  


The Greetery


For this first card, I stamped the bouquet and then used the stencils to add in the color.  I did a little cutting to make the bouquet fit inside the Its a Wrap Posy Pocket Die.  I layered the bouquet on a striped Postage Frame background and then added Happy Birthday from the Arched Sentiment Stamp Set.


On this next card, I used the new Sketched Wildflower Frame Background Stamp on the card front.  I used the Crimped Frame to cut it out and then layered it on a card base of the same color.  Next, I popped up the bouquet but trimmed off the base and then added the Hello sentiment along the top.


The Greetery


Last but not least, I created a super simple wedding card.  I used the new Elegant Arches Background Stamp to create the light gray background.  I die cut another Arches panel and stamped the sentiment in gray ink.  Using the new Lovely Silhouettes Stamp Set, I added one stem in black ink and then popped the arched panel up on foam tape.  


The Greetery


See the full release, which will be available tomorrow, August 4th at 10am EST, by clicking HERE!

Happy Summer {Pretty Pink Posh}...

 As I mentioned in my last Pretty Pink Posh Post, my very first design team was with Paulina's mom, Nami.  Denami had an adorable wood block surf board stamp. Here is my card from back in 2012....


IMG_6863_edited-1


It was the first thing I thought of when I saw this stamp set from PPP called Summer Surfboards and you know I had to recreate it!


Pretty Pink Posh


I took a white card base and lined up the  5 surfboard outlines and sentiment in my Misti.  After stamping them a 2nd time, I colored up the 3 middle boards with Copic markers.  


Pretty Pink Posh


Using foam tape, I popped up each of the boards just so this quick and simple card would have some dimension.  


Pretty Pink Posh


Talk about easy!  This card would be super simple to mass produce.  I hope you have enjoyed today's recreation.  It was fun to look back at my cards from all those years ago!  

Check out Pretty Pink Posh and all of their amazing stamps and dies by clicking HERE!  PS....they also carry my FAVORITE clear dew drops!!

Have a great week!

Hello Friend {Pretty Pink Posh}...

I have a new card up with some Pretty Pink Posh goodies.  Pretty Pink Posh is run by one of my favorites!  I have known Paulina for YEARS  as my very first design team (back in 2011) was Denami, run my Paulina's sweet mom, Nami!  It has been so much fun to see Paulina grow over the years to start her own company and see how amazing it is now...not to mention how adorable her products are.  And then to become a wife and mom!  Melts my heart to see her little family grow.  She is the sweetest and my most favorite thing about her is her gorgeous smile!  When she asked me to be a guest in July, of course I said YES!!

Pretty Pink Posh works so well with my clean and simple style.  I love her stencils and the fonts of her sentiment dies....LOVE!  Here is today's card using the Layered Letters Stencils.  After added color in grays for the envelope, I used the 3rd stencil to add in red for the hearts.  Using the Scalloped Frames Dies, I popped up a white frame around the card front. 


Pretty Pink Posh


To finish off the card, I used the stencil to create one more red envelop and popped it up on foam tape.  I added in the black cardstock, Hello Friend sentiment and then added one little heart from Sweet Love Clay Confetti
