It’s time for the April Large Die of the Month From Spellbinders. This month its a slimline die and I went all in with Rainbows. Check out this fun rainbow birthday card.

The Universal Curved Border Die set has11 dies. Although it is slimline die set you definitely can use it for smaller cards like A2. I did in some upcoming projects!

And that cute curved happy Birthday- Thats in the coordinating Clear Stamp of the Month called Around the Bend. I Love it!!

Make sure you head over to the Spellbinders site to check out this month’s Large Die of the Month and Clear Stamp of the Month. I love how all of these kits coordinate together, so you can create a variety of cards.

New Field of Flowers- Watercolor Florals

There is a new line of Watercolor Floral stamps over at Spellbinders. Today I’m sharing 3 beautiful cards with the set called “Field of Flowers”.

There are a number of ways to use these Watercolor Floral stamps by Sushma Hegde. They are way more than watercoloring. Of course you can watercolor them, but for my first card I stamped in black and added a touch of color with copics.

Next up is a slimline. Also stamped in black. Those squares are cut to 2-5/8 each and then layered onto a slimline card.

Finally I have A sympathy card that is gold heat embossed. Again, I added a touch of color with copics.

You can see the whole Watercolor Floral collection HERE

Rainbows all Around

Today it’s all about rainbows. I absolute LOVE this Concord and 9th Rainbow Stamp set called Brighter Days Ahead. (available at Concord and 9th, Simon Says Stamp and Ellen Hutson) And it is oh so true …we are finally seeing brighter days ahead. Can you believe that a year ago this was our last normal week and NOBODY knew it? Me either.

Let’s get to the cards.

This Brighter Days stamp set is not new- I bought it last year sometime when I was itching to make a few rainbow cards and finally inked it up. It’s always good to have at least one Rainbow option in your stash!

These are pretty simple cards to make. As you can see, just about any color combination will make the big impact!!

Brighter Days Stamp Set is perfect for creating all kinds of awesome rainbow-themed designs! I used a variety of supplies Like the MFT clouds die and the Ellen Hutson Cloud Dies. Plus there are clouds in the coordinating Brighter Days dies see all the links below….

All the black dots on the rainbows were done with a black marker.

Yana’ Blooming Birthday and Glimmer Essentials!

Today I am sharing a bunch of cards featuring products from Spellbinders Yana’s Blooming Birthday Glimmer Collection AND the Glimmer Essentials Collections ! Lets get to the cards.

My 1st card is simple. Grab your Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foiling System because this gorgeous Glimmering Peony Glimmer Hot Foil Plate is awesome paired with Yana’s Tiny Sentiments.

Foiling on cards is EASY and elegant and fun! All my cards today feature the new Lavender Petal hot foil too. Perfect for Spring.

For both cards I created a frame with the Essential Duo Lines Glimmer Squares. These are Glimmer Hot Foil Plates from Glimmer Essentials Collection. This one I die cut the center out to make a window. The Peony is colored with Copic markers.

I love the look of blended alcohol inks but I am to chicken to try it. I paired the Peony on the card above and this card with Vivid Inkdrops Paper from Craft Consortium.

Finally I have one more card with the Essential Duo Lines Glimmer Squares Glimmer Hot Foil Plates. How cute is this?

It’s super easy to create this chevron. Using washi tape. tape the Square glimmer plates as shown, face down. Then flip them over and place them on the Glimmer Machine and foil as usual. I cut my cardstock a little larger and trimmed to a card panel. I then colored with Copics.

Both Yana’s Blooming collection and the Glimmer Essentials collection are Must Haves!! Head on over to Spellbinders and check them out!
