I chose 3 different patterned papers from the paper pack included in the kit and lined 3 card bases.  Next I tool the ephemera pack and added lots of details on each card.  I love that everything coordinates and works together!


Spellbinders


One of my favorite parts of the kit, is that so many of the pieces are covered in gold foil detail.  Love that shine!

Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Garden Rose Release Blog Hop + Giveaway





Nothing is prettier than a garden rose! Enjoy our Craft Your Life Project Kit, an exciting monthly package that is sure to get the creative juices flowing! Featuring a 6x8 stamp set, coordinating die set, as well as a stencil and embossing folder to fit the theme, this project kit has almost everything you need to start crafting. Just add ink and cardstock, and you'll be good to go! This kit features a stamp including two beautifully drawn roses with three layers each and four leaf outlines. Leave these unfilled, or add color with the stencil set! One stencil acts as a coloring/mask stencil, one includes bold stripes, and the third contains three words that go with the sentiments in the stamp set. Finally, add texture with the 3D embossing folder for a stunning project!


Altenew


This quick and easy card was made with the embossing folder from the kit.  I simply inked it up with an ink pad and then ran it through my die cut machine.  The ink transferred like letter press!  Super easy!

Thankful for you....

The Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month is so much fun!  It has a total fall feel which I absolutely love!  I created a simple slim line card using just a few of the elements and a sentiment.  

 

Spellbinders


I used the Mini Nested Glimmer Dots to create a border around the slim line card front.  I arranged the foiled elements on the front and then popped a sentiment strip over the top.  Super quick and easy!


Spellbinders

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!

Christmas Time - The Greetery Day 3...

 Welcome to day 3 of The Greetery's Christmas Time Collection Reveal.  Today is the last day of sneak peeks before tomorrow's release, Thursday, October 6th at 10 EDT. Yay for release day!


Today's new products are so stinkin' cute!  It's all about baking!  This first card was made with the stamps from the Bake it Merry Stamp Set and their coordinating dies....


The Greetery


To create this card, I used the Graham Cracker Cuts Die to add a fun layer of cookie in the background.  I added it to a piece of red glitter cardstock so that sparkle would shine through.  I built up the the little cake pan and cookies and sentiment, along with the oven mitt and spatula....agh!  All the cutest details!


Another adorable new addition to the Greetery is called Bake Someone Happy!  Check out this adorable treat box....


The Greetery


It's amazing how easy this is to put together!  All of the detail dies are included in the die set.  The burners, the handles, the over knobs....all the way to the cookie sheet and the cookies! There is a coordinating stamp set to add details onto the oven, as well as, coordinating sentiments.


The Greetery


Today is when I would normally do the Greetery IG Live, but I am a band mom today at my daughter's first marching band competition of the season!  I will be on The Greetery's Instagram bright and early tomorrow (Thursday) at 8am CST to show you all the new products.  Stop by and say hi!


Don't forget to leave comments on all the blogs today for your chance to win 1 of 2, $50 gift certificates to The Greetery!



See you tomorrow!  Have a great day!

Altenew Rustic Charm Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Hi friends!  I am here today with a new card showcasing a brandy new stamp set from Altenew's Rustic Charm Collection, available now over at the shop!


Today I am using the All is Bright Stamp Set.  This stamp set works as a background stamp.  It is so fun to add in the bulbs in different colors!  I took it a step further and did some fussy cutting to create this card....


Altenew


I masked off the edges of the card and added in a little bit of ink blending. I adde foam squares to the back of the light bulbs and added it to the card.  After stamping the sentiment on the side of the card front, I added in Stickles to each of the centers of the bulbs for a little shine!  This was a fun card to make for sure!
