hello {Spellbinders}...



Hello friends!  I have had a great day in my craft room and had to come share a quick card.  I am using the May Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month, as well as, one of my favorite sentiment Glimmer Plates, Hello Dear Friend.


Spellbinders


To create this card, I used last months die to create a little design in the middle of the card.  I love how those dies layer together to create a cool graphic look.  I added them to a light gray card base and then did a little Gold Metallic Watercolor spritz.  


Spellbinders


Using a square die cut, I cut another panel of gray cardstock to layer on the card base.  This square works as a window to showcase those die.  Last, I hot foiled the hello and die cut it with its coordinating die.  I added that to the card base with foam squares for dimension.


Spellbinders


Spellbinders has a monthly die subscription that is worth checking out.  Having a die set land on your doorstep each month is like Christmas for us crafters every month!

Hope you have enjoyed today's card.  Thanks for coming by!  Have a great day1

Altenew


To create this card, I used the Brushed Grid Washi tape from the last Washi release.  I added it to some white cardstock but only put it on a little over half of the background, leaving the bottom of the card white. 


Altenew


Next, I stamped and die cut the big bloom from Floral Art.  I used a blender brush and a bit of Heartbeat Red Ink to add in some soft color to the center of the boom.  I added it to the card front with foam tape to pop it up a little.  Now to add in the new product from this release...the Shine Die Set.  I die cut each piece in white cardstock and added that to the front of of the bloom and then finished it off with a sentiment strip below.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Columbine Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Altenew is releasing a new Build-A-Flower today.  The Columbine!  This flower is the state flower of my native state of Colorado.  I always loved seeing these growing wild in the mountains.   So now, I am totally loving this gorgeous stamp set!

Check it out....

Here is today's card....


Altenew


I inked up an acrylic block and added a little water and then stamped it down to create the background.  I used some of that same water with a little more of that lavender fields ink to add in the splatter.


Altenew


Using Bamboo ink, I stamped in the stems directly on the card base and also added in the sentiment in Obsidian Black Ink.  To finish off the card, I inked up the Columbines and leaves and then die cut them with their coordinating dies.  I added the blooms to the card front with foam tape.

Simon Says Stamp


US of CRAFT-AY is a brand new set full of all the most adorable crafty tools and sentiments.  I wanted to create a clean and simple card and I had to incorporate all the sentiments so I came up with this....


Simon Says Stamp


I stamped the main sentiments on the white card base using my Misti and then added in the die cut "rainbow" and the other crafty tools.  I love that sentiment....Make America Craft Again!  So fun!

Simon Says Stamp


I knew this Peony Bouquet stamp would have so many possibilities, but of course, I had to go quick and simple.  


Simon Says Stamp


I inked up the full stamp with Altenew's Rouge Ink and then sponged in some Heartbeat Red in the center.  I stamped in the sentiment from Crafty Bunnies and then added score lines along the bottom to finish it off.

Simon Says Stamp


I had to use the US of CRAFT-AY set one more time, so I colored up and die cut all of those adorable tools.


IMG_5943Simon Says Stamp


I heat embossed the white embossing powdered sentiment on the red stitched rectangle and then added in all the tools with fun foam.  Last, I added the focal point to a scored base to keep it full of my favorite white space!
