Glory of Snow from the Snow Garden Collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn

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.

Next is a bit more involved with some reverse foiling using the Winter Bough Hot Foil Plate.

The Glimmer Essential Arched hot foil plate (which is a solid foil plate) is one of my favorites. Sentiment is gold heat embossed and is from the Pine Cones and Holly Clear stamp of the month. The poinsettias are from Bibi’s Snowflake Card Creator Etched Dies. And the label die is also new from Bibi’s collection called the Pierced mini labels etched dies.

Bibi’s Snowflake Collection by Bibi Cameron and Spellbinders

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.

I cut the snowflake with White Frosting Chunky glitter paper. The light pink Flurry of Snowflakes 3d embossed panel is Pink Lemonade paper. Both are from Your Paper Insider (Box 4).

Next Up is a Snowflake card. I scored and folded a 6.5 x 12 paper in half and put the fold just under the edge of the die to create the card base. The die cut part of the sentiment is from Snowflake Wishes Clear Stamp & Die Set. I wanted to add some glimmer so I used the Glitter Wishes Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set underneath.

Here’s a shot of it open. The circle is 3.5 inches wide and is a perfect fit. (Fluted Classics Circles set).

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!

Check out the New Envelope of Wonder from Spellbinders

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.

If you need more to decorate your envelopes of wonder, check out the Christmas of Wonder Die set and a Halloween of Wonder die set. BOTH are so NICE!!

Introducing the Spellbinders Betterpress with Mushrooms

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

Here is my 1st Betterpress project- Mushroom Notecards made with the Mushroom Duo Press Plate & Die Set.

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:

You can watch the Spellbinders Video here to learn more:
