Sentiments for You Clear Stamp Set 

My Favorite Things: Polar Bear Pals

I love these guys! Can you guess how long I have had this Polar Bear Pals Stamp and matching Die set? YEARS! It was time to ink them up as the temps are dropping this week it was time for a cold critter invasion. I have 5 adorably FUN cards to share today.

First up are the skating bears. I love the Spellbinders Flurry of Snowflakes 3D embossing folder and this is another way to use it.

The Ice and the icebergs are highly colored with a light blue copic. I also lightly colored the snowflakes with the same marker. Sadly the little iceberg dies are not available.

I had a few extra backgrounds leftover from these cards. I love when I can repurpose them into another project. Do you save everything too?

This is stitching for the “ice” is from Spellbinders Winter Borders Etched Dies. The pink and blue in the background is pulled into the design with the pink and blue in the scarf.

Next is a masculine Birthday card. I really struggled with the background on this one. There are so many options like plaid papers and snow papers. I settled on the stripe embossing folder (retired) but now I wish I added a little more color with distress oxides instead.

How about a Valentine or 2?

As Valentines Day is right around the corner it was. time to make some love themed cards.

These Winter Trees Die-namics are an easy peasy way to add birch trees to your background. I bought them a few months ago but can’t remember what project they were for. (UGH). I went with white on white however, gray, tan, or brown color can work with these tree dies! Almost always I make my snow mounds with the Color Block Scenic Scape Etched Dies.

Finally a Mini Slimline Valentine. This card is made with the only the dies from the December 2022 clear stamp and die of the month club and the NEW Wonderful Script Sentiments Etched Dies.

I have 2 layers of white letters and 2 layers of the black “you” to add more dimension to the card. If you need another idea for using these “LOVE” letters I made THIS CARD on Instagram and a cute card on THIS POST.

NEW From Spellbinders: THE ANEMONE BLOOMS COLLECTION

Today I am sharing some beautiful pink and rose gold cards using products from the new Anemone Blooms Collection by Yana Smakula and Spellbinders! Lets get glimmering and die cutting!

This collection is simply beautiful. This card features the Anemone Glimmer Blooms Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set  and the coordinating Hello, Friend Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate. and if you don’t glimmer – there are dies for the flower too!

I used regular rose gold hot foil and then colored the image in with pale colored copics to give it just a little color. There is New Satin Rose Gold Foil. Don’t forget to grab the Wonderful Script Sentiments Etched Dies so you can also cut your hot foil sentiments. (they go together). Here is a peek at my Instagram reel:

Here is the gorgeous Beautiful Blooms 3D Embossing folder paired with a reverse foiled sentiment. If you missed it, reverse foiling details are HERE.

More reverse foiling below with the Essential Glimmer Solid Circle Glimmer Hot Foil Plate. One of may favs!

And finally I have hot pink foil. I had this Geometic Flower glimmer background (colored with the Layered Geometric Flower Stencils) on my stamp table from another project. Are you getting all the pink feels today?

NEW! The Showered with Love Collection by Vicki Papaioannou and Spellbinders

This collection is SO MUCH FUN. Why? Because Umbrellas and Rainbows make for some fun spring cards! I made 5 cards for todays blog post using 3 items from the new collection. The Rain or Shine Etched Dies, Umbrella Bloom Etched Dies and the new Raindrops 3D Embossing Folder. The rest of the items I had in my stash.  

Let’s get right to the cards. This uses the Rain or Shine Etched Dies for the Clouds and theUmbrella Bloom Etched Dies for the bigger umbrella. The sentiment is from Sentiments for You Clear Stamp Set.

Rainbows!

Next is Rain or Shine Etched Dies with the adorable sentiment from the Clear Stamp and Die of the Month.

This beauty is my favorite of all 5 cards. This uses the Umbrella Bloom Etched Dies and some really old printed paper from Gina K that I dug out of my stash. The printed paper has a little bit of a sheen to it. This set is a great way to use up some pretty paper scraps and makes the umbrella more than just for rainy cards.

I do love a good rainy card though! This is the Rain or Shine Etched Dies and the new Raindrops 3D Embossing Folder. I turned my paper slightly in the folder to create the rain on a diagonal. After Embossing, I swiped it with a light blue ink pad.

Spring is all about the Rainbows! and the Wonderful Script Sentiments are also new as I used them on the Gerber Daisy cards last week. This Embossing folder is called Optical Arches. Looks like rainbows to me!

Introducing the NEW GERBER DAISY DIES FROM THE PAINTER’S GARDEN COLLECTION from Spellbinders

Today I am switching into full spring garden mode with the NEW Gerber Daisy and Ladybugs Etched Dies from The Painter’s Garden Collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn. There are so beautiful in person and surprisingly easy to make.

My first card today features a white Gerbera Daisy and the Bamboo Trellis 3D Embossing Folder from this collection.

These daisies are fun. You cut 2 of each size of the flower petals and 3 of each of the centers. And it says it on the edge of the dies so you don’t forget! Glue them together with Bearly liquid glue and curl the edges.

I used the Wonderful Script Sentiments Etched Dies  for the sentiments on both of these cards. Did you know you can now get Nuvo drops at Spellbinders? YES!! The NUVO Crystal Drops – Morning Dew is one of my personal favs!

In addition to these fun Gerber Daisies, there are Zinnias, Pansies, Bird of Paradise and Carolina AllSpice flowers too!

TIME FOR MORE SPELLBINDERS CLUBS – JANUARY 2023 (PART 2) 

Back again with the 2nd installment of the Month Spellbinders clubs. Today it’s the Clear Stamp and Die of the Month, the regular Embossing folder Club, the Large Die and more of the NEW 3-D Embossing Club.

First Up is the  Large Die  of the month. If you love die cutting and making beautiful flowers, this is the month for you. It is a WOW!

Next is a super simple note card using the  Large Die  and Essential Circles dies. You can easily make a handful of these and gift them!

Here is the Clear Stamp and Die of the Month. A beautiful spring floral arrangement. I made this card twice. One with the NEW 3-D Embossing Club and one with the standard folder and different sentiments options from the clubs this month. Which is your favorite?

For the card on the left I added more color to the entire image but most to the hydrangea and the center flower. I think they are both beautiful!

HAPPY NEW YEAR: IT’S SPELLBINDERS CLUB TIME- JANUARY 2023 (part 1)

It’s Spellbinders Club Time! and there is a NEW Club this year– the 3-D Embossing Club. OH MY its LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!

Today I am sharing 3 cards using several clubs. Aa you know coordination is the name of the game and each club goes well with the other. It’s full on mix and match this month. for 2023 I am participating in 5 Spellbinders clubs: The Clear Stamp and Die of the Month, the regular Embossing folder Club, the Small Die of the Month, the Large Die and the NEW 3-D Embossing Club.

First Up is the 3-D Embossing Club. I made these by inking the smooth side of the embossing folder with Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink and using a an 8.5 x 5.5 sheet of white cardstock. See below for my reel.

To get the creamy color, I inked the 3-D Embossing Club twice. There is an arch in the center of this embossing folder that you could easily stamp a sentiment in. Today’s cards show that you can use it without the arch as well. And the beautiful sticked edge is made with the  Limited Edition Layered Stitched Diamonds Etched Die Set and you can still order it!

Friendly Reminder: This is a 3D folder so make sure you have the Universal Plate System. It really does make a difference in how the 3D folders emboss. The sentiment is from the Clear stamp and die club and is white heat embossed on black cardstock.

Here is my Instagram Reel for these:

Next is a beautiful Pink and gray birthday card using the Small Die of the Month kit and the Embossing folder Club of the month.

Sentiment Tip: When die cutting these strips I had to add a shim or 2 to get the die to cut all the way through. These type of sentiment dies are way more striking when they are cut the right way. And you can back them with another color and it will show.

I also have an Instagram Reel for this card. Are you following me on Instagram? You can find me HERE.
