Lets Stencil! The NEW the Flower Market Collection FROM SPELLBINDERS

If you love fast and simply beautiful cards these stencils from the Flower Market Collection are for you. The hardest part is picking the colors to stencil with! This is the Coneflower Layered Stencil with the new Pinkfresh Studio inks. Sorry I did not save the color combo for the one.

How beautiful is this? It’s the Blossoming Flowers Layered Stencil. Hydrangea, Wisteria, Licorice and Spanish moss are the colors I used for this from the new ink release at Pinkfresh Studio. The Fancy Sentiment Strips Press Plate & Die Set are perfect for stenciled cards.

Check out my IG Reel here:

And this one is my favorite paired with the Clear Stamp and Die of the Month. I masked this stenciled panel and then added the black lines with a marker for a faux layered look.

Clear Stamp and Die of the Month


It’s my favorite crafty time of the month! As always, the spellbinders clubs this month are awesome! Let’s get right to it!

Clean and simple from the Large Die of the Month is up first. Totally in LOVE with this set and this card.

The Clear Stamp and Die of the Month has the best sentiments this month! The light blue cardstock is from the 12 Days of Stitchmas Stitch Along Add-on Kit. You can purchase the cardstock-it’s called raindrop!

I love all things that sparkle! Here is the Small Die of the Month kit  paired with some Silver Diamond glitter card stock from  Your Paper Insider box 5. The Clear Stamp and Die of the Month sentiment is silver heat embossed.

Next is the standard Embossing folder Club of the month paired with the Small Die of the Month kit and Peacock metallic foil from Your Paper Insider box 5.

Another beautiful Large Die of the Month and the Hello Perfect Pink glitter cardstock (Your Paper Insider).

Finally I have the 3-D Embossing Club. I used the folder on a piece of Inkdrops Paper. I then swiped it with White pigment ink to make the flowers pop, but it was too light. Well, I heat embossed it with some white embossing powder and this is what I got. It is so pretty in real life!

Be sure to join ALL the Spellbinders clubs today. They are so much crafty fun!

Spellbinders NEW Serenade of Autumn Collection

Hello stamping friends! Spellbinders has released their gorgeous Serenade of Autumn Collection and it’s so beautiful! It has lots of fall leaves and sunflowers. And I’m currently obsessed with all things Sunflower this fall season. Today I am sharing the Sunflower Border Press Plate and the Autumn Serenade 3D Embossing Folder. First up is the plate. I love the monochromatic look of this card.

I used the BetterPress Saffron ink (from the Nature Tone Ink set) on the plate. It took me 3 tries to get this card right. First time I did not clean the plate well enough and the black ink I used first bled into the yellow a little. Second try I had way too much ink on the plate and when I pressed it and it was bleeding a little into the soft cotton card stock. and this is the 3rd try. Totally worth the mess-ups -its only paper right?

Here’s the card I made with the black ink, the Sunflower Border Press Plate and my inspiration photo from Pinterest.

I colored this card with copics. The soft cardstock does suck up the ink so go lighter than you want to when you color. Bummed that my purple flowers look a little blue in the picture.

Finally I have a super clean and simple card with the New Autumn Serenade 3D Embossing Folder.

I used the Sunflowers from the Build-A-Wreath Etched Dies . There are sooooo many cute sunflowers in the serenade of fall collection. Be sure to check them all out!
