New From Spellbinders: Yana’s Blooms

Today I am happy to introduce a new collection with Spellbinders called Yana’s Blooms. Yana designed this collection with elegant Spring Birthday card making in mind. I have a quite a few projects to share today!

First up the Diagonal Glimmer Plate and the Magnolia Glimmer Plate in gold and black foil:

Striking and simple! take a closer look at the beautiful black foil. Its hard to see in the picture but it is shiny!

Here’s My Instagram reel:

Next up is the Splatter Birthday sentiments. Oh how I love this one! Soooooo simple!

Gold and blue foil and the Splatter Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plates! I used all glimmer here and cut the sentiment with The Yana’s Layered Script Sentiments Etched Dies. The dies cut the sentiments alone they also cut the glimmer sentiments.

Next up is Magnolia Blooms Etched Die:

Do you see that Touch of Blue diagonal Glimmer. I used the die to cut a white base and a green top layer. I added color with some shades of yellow copics.

Finally some blue foiled magnolias. Check out the diagonal embossing. I use the diagonal glimmer plate and dry embossed the background!

The magnolia flowers are slightly colored with some light pink ink.

Welcome to another Blog Hop with Spellbinders. We are sharing January 2022 Clubs Blog Hop Project Inspiration! Hopefully you have hopped with us before! It is so much fun to celebrate some of my favorite clubs!

Today I am sharing the Small die of the Month :

I created this with 4 shades of pink cardstock. I die cut each color and then assembled it with the inlaid die cutting technique. A little bit fussy but the end results is oh so beautiful!

The “Love You” sentiment is from the Layered Mix & Match Sentiments (September 2021) Die of the month. It has great sentiment combos and you can still purchase it here. Find the gems here.

I paired the die with the New Embossing folder of the month. The response has been so overwhelming this Embossing Club has sold out for Jan. Spellbinders will try to bring this design back again at a later time (check “Past Clubs” section). Be sure to sign up for our Clubs right away on the 1st of the month not to miss out on any future designs.

More Spellbinders January 2022 Clubs: Large Die and Clear Stamp and Die

Today I am sharing the Large die of the month and the Clear Stamp & Die of the Month Club. Soooooo much coordination this month it it simply awesome!

First up: Large Die of the Month. This month’s “A Pocket Full of Love” is perfect for lots of projects and I chose to make a birthday pocket gift card holder.

I had lots of fun taking a valentine themed die and turning it into something that can be used all year round. Wedding and Anniversary are perfect here! Here is the open shot:

I have a die that would make a holder for the gift card but I forgot to pull it out. Glue dots to the rescue!

Be sure to check out my Instagram reel for this one:

Now for the Clear Stamp & Die of the Month Club:

Another Valentine themed set made into a sympathy card. For the background I dry embossed the Small Die of the Month kit. If you have the Spellbinders die cutting machine the sandwich (bottom to top) is the platform, die with cardstock cut side up, tan embossing mat, hard embossing plate on top.

Like the other Spellbinders clubs, the Embossing Folder and the Small die is a subscription-style club. You can add on other clubs and so much more: Details of how it works HERE

A New Spellbinders Embossing Folder Club!

Happy New year! I love Spellbinders clubs and this year I’m changing it up! I have 4 clubs in my card making arsenal for 2022.

What are they you ask? The Brand New Embossing Folder of the month club (you are gonna love it), Clear Stamp and Die of the month and like last year the Small Die and Large die of the month. SOOOOO FUN! and the best part….lots and lots of coordinating products!

Lets first start with the New Embossing Folder club. These new embossing folders are extra special. They are 5.5 x 8.5 inches! (that’s huge!) This means you can use them to create embossed backgrounds for the standard A2 cards, PLUS 5×7 cards, Full size slimline cards and mini slimline cards!

The folder is called Spreading Love and it creates this cute heart rainbow background. It’s hard to see on my card but the rainbow is there.

I paired the embossing folder with the Large Die of the Month die cut heart and the Clear Stamp and Die of the Month sentiment. (and die). More on these coming soon! You can get the embossing folder as part of the Spellbinders VALUE Clubs. This is by far the best value as you get all the clubs for the price of $100!

Be sure to check out my Instagram reel here:

Now let’s check out the Small die of the Month! Lots of Inlaid die cutting technique on this!

Beautiful! I embossed the center heart and added some new Color Essential Gems in the Spellbinders shop. These are the Spectrum AB color. Here’s a close up!

Like the other Spellbinders clubs, the Embossing Folder and the Small die is a subscription-style club. You can add on other clubs and so much more: Details of how it works HERE
