NEW SPELLBINDERS RELEASE: Postage Edge Shapes Becca Feeken

It’s another fun new release from Spellbinders and Becca Feeken. This release has a great set of 5 die foundation shapes from circular to slimline dies. These fabulous dies work well with ALL the spellbinders dies and the Sealed by Spellbinders Collection. I have 3 cards to share using 2 die sets: Postage Edge Slimline dies by Becca Feeken and Postage Edge Circles.

First up is the circle postage edge does. I paired it with the Holiday Blooms Etched Dies in a not so holiday look. I love to make holidays dies and glimmer plates go all year round.

Next up is a Full slimline card using the Postage Edge Slimline dies. You may recognize this card. It was the 1st card I made with the Wax Seal Starter Kit (Details on wax seals here)

Next is a slightly different version of the last card. I added some color to make the gold wax pop. Which one do you like best?

My Favorite Things Coffee Shop – Part 1

I have had these new MFT Coffee Shop stamps and dies sitting here in my stamp room for a little bit. I knew I wanted them the minute I saw them.

And….It’s been a while since I played in the Coffee Lovers blog hop. (Squeaking in at the end!). This was a perfect opportunity to play and share with you. (supplies are listed at the end of the post)

These dies and stamps are so stinking cute. They are fussy and have lots and lots of tiny pieces but holy cow check out the end results:

Take a closer look at the die cutting details.

This pink one is my favorite so far. It’s so fun to decorate your own coffee shop. those chairs are from Bistro Basics Die-namics. Take a closer look.

I had to add a cute critter at the coffee shop!

I purchased these all direct from My Favorite Things. Every thing is in stock at the moment except the paper. Be sure to get on the “notify me” list asap. things come back pretty quickly.

Stay tuned for Part 2 – once you start making all these fun little die cuts you want to make more. So many fun coffee themed cards.

Sealed by Spellbinders- Part 2

My New Sealed by Spellbinders Wax Seal Starter Kit has arrived! This kit is super cool and so much fun! I have 4 cards to share today.

Here is my Instagram reel to give you a quick unboxing and show you how it works. There are full instructions in the kit. All you need is a tea light and a lighter.

This card in the reel was also the first card I made. These fun Postage Edge Shapes by Becca Feeken slimline dies are new too. More on those to come.

Take a closer look. I paired the wax with Sealed Berry Sprig Etched Dies  and it’s so beautiful:

Here are a few Wax Seal tips:

After making 3 attempts to wax seal the cute stems, here is what I learned

— Don’t over heat your wax. If its bubbling it’s too hot.

— Use 3-4 wax beads. I used 5 on my 1st attempt and it was too much wax. Use 4 one the 1st heat and then 3 after was perfect as there was still some wax left in the spoon.

— Practice on a piece of scratch cardstock. The 1st wax I poured was too hot (and too much wax) and warped the cardstock.

— Leave the wax seal stamp on the hot wax and wait for it to cool a bit. This drastically reduced the cardstock warping.

— It’s very cool to wax seal right on the paper but if you mess up you have to completely start over. pretty time consuming ( I die cut all new pieces) after making the above card 3 times

— If you are looking for card embellishments, it’s perfectly fine to make a bunch of wax seals on the rubber mat and then glue them to your card. This is my personal preference.

When using the wax seals I prefer to keep the card very clean and simple. I want the wax to be the star of the card.

Of course I added to my wax seal order! Pastel Pink Wax Beads and white wax beads and 2 stamps: Mandala Wax Seal Stamp and the Sweet Happy Birthday Wax Seal Stamp. I already had the dies, I used them on this post.

This seal was made on the rubber mat and glued to the card and you can’t tell the difference! Oh and I love that it is a note card for any occasion. Mandala Wax Seal Stamp for the win!

Also wax seals and 3-d embossing folders pair very well together. I recommend adding the metallic markers to you order to add some highlights to the wax. I did not and wish I had them. FYI: Copics do not color on wax.

Here is my fourth and final card for today. I love them all but this one is my favorite!

It’s the most craftiest time of the month- Spellbinders Club Time! Today I am sharing 3 clubs in this post. The  Clear Stamp and Die of the MonthEmbossing folder Club and Small Die of the Month! My favorite crafty clubs and the Spellbinders November 2022 club Kits do not disappoint! The Large Die will come a in a few days.

First Up is the  Clear Stamp and Die of the Month and the Embossing folder Club:

Rich shade of purples make this card. The image is stamped in people ink and colored slightly with copics. I dragged a white ink pad over the embossing folder to create the background. So easy and it was a fun surprise to see how well the image went with the Essential Diamonds Etched Dies.

Here is another card with the  Clear Stamp and Die of the Month and the Embossing folder Club:

I love that the Essential Arches Etched Dies coordinate with the beautiful floral image.

Next up is the Embossing folder Club and Small Die of the Month.

I die cut the floral image in black and trimmed it down for a more simple image. Love the pink and black.

Here is the full die cut image. So beautiful

A New Product – Sealed by Spellbinders

There’s a new product line from Spellbinders – Wax Seals (Sealed by Spellbinders ). Today I’m sharing a few “faux wax seal” cards made with stamps and dies while I wait for my Sealed kit to arrive.

You can easily make faux wax seals with the Faux Wax Seals Clear Stamp & Die Set. Here is my 1st card:

I used the Sealed Leaf Sprigs Etched Dies  but there are SO MANY stems and flowers to pick from! Here is my reel:

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the new Geometic Flower glimmer background and Layered Geometric Flower Stencils to color with.

And for this card I used the glimmer plate to emboss. Its really easy!

The Universal Plate System makes embossing with dies and glimmer plates EASY! The instructions are on the platform (embossing with a cut shape). I used the adapter plate, Embossing mat, Glimmer plate cardstock and the platform base and top.

Be sure to check out all of the other products in this release – wax seals, wax beads, more glimmer plates, stencils & dies.

Be sure to stop back soon. I will have more coming with the wax seal when my Wax Seal starter kit arrives.
