Today I have 2 cards from the Spellbinders Paper Arts Snow Garden Collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn. This collection features hot foil plates and Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s beautiful layered paper flowers. I want for super clean and simple for this 1st card today with the Glory of Snow Etched Dies.
Everything was die cut in white. The blue flowers are colored by blending a little bit of tumbled glass distress oxide ink onto the petals. The leaves are blended with peeled paint distress oxide ink. So simple and so pretty.
Hi stamping friends. Today I have 2 cards to share from Bibi’s new Snowflake Collection. The Snowflake Card Creator Etched Dies are so great. It has 12 Cutting Dies including pine needles, poinsettia berries and holly. This is a HUGE snowflake die. It’s just over 6″ wide.
This card is BUG. Perfect for attaching to the top of a gift or add some ribbon and tie it to a wine bottle. If you want to mail it you will need to make a custom envelope. Bibi’s Snowflakes is a beautiful collection to celebrate the winter season. Get yours today!
OH MY- this new Envelope of Wonder is a WOW! These envelopes are so fun to make and stuff with all the die cut goodies. My first card uses the base die set – it comes with the envelope and the flowers.
My note card insert is 4.25 x 3.5 inches. Note: this Envelope of Wonder does NOT fit into an A2 envelope as shown open- it’s a little bit big. If the envelope flap is closed it will fit the A2. Otherwise you will need a 5×7 envelope.
I used the new Betterpress Sentiments of Wonder. Guess What? You can press the plate into regular paper. Sadly you will loose most of the impression detail of it being pushed into the paper. It’s more like a stamp on regular cardstock. Don’t have the BetterPress? No problem! check out the stamp set.
I am totally loving all the fun mushrooms for fall. These cute mushrooms are from the Autumn Wonder dies.
Today I am sharing 2 stencil cards with no stamping required. The beautiful Stencil from the August 2023 Glimmer Kit of the month add on called Overflowing Floral. You can purchase this Flower Stencil on its own, you don’t need to be a Glimmer club member.
And finally a card using Kraft and white cardstock for the background. This is the Embossing folder of the month from July: The Christmas Wrap Pattern embossing folder (available for purchase a the time of this post).
I had so much fun creating with these dies. These dies would make really cute gift tags too because they are a bit larger. Add them to your collection today!
Confession time: I have had this Betterpress Platform since June when it was launched. and now I am asking myself…What was I waiting for? It’s so easy to make beautiful letterpress style cards in seconds.
I purchased the BetterPress Letterpress System‘s Exclusive Starter Bundle which came with the Betterpress platform plus some inks, several plates and a bunch of the soft cotton paper. The new fall Betterpress plates are what inspired me! Sadly the bundle is not available anymore
This Betterpress platform is not stamping. It is pressing the image into the cardstock with a specialized printing process that creates letterpress stationery. (think wedding invitations) Its thicker paper than traditional cardstock- more like watercolor paper.
I colored these mushroom with Zig Clean color watercolor markers. You can use any coloring medium that you have. the paper is a little softer than traditional cardstock.
heck out my Instagram reel to see how they come together:
