The NEW Country Road Collection by Annie Williams and Spellbinders

Hi Friends, I have three cards to share with you using the gorgeous new Spellbinders Country Road Collection by Annie Williams. This collection has so many pieces you can make an endless card designs.

First Up is the Country Wheelbarrow Etched Dies. I filled up the wheelbarrow with flowers from the Garden Builder Etched Dies. The sentiment is from Be Bold Glimmer Sentiments.

I used my favorite Cloud Stencil on all of these cards today. This country barrel is made with the  Rustic Garden Etched Dies. It also has pieces to create a split rail fence and pieces to create a pump, a wagon wheel, and a birdhouse. The  Essential Arches Etched Dies make the window and the Orange Peel Quilt Embossing Folder complete the card.

The Pink cardstock is from Your Paper Insider box #2.

My third card is a barrel note card made with the Garden Builder Etched Dies, Rustic Garden Etched Dies and the Essential Hexi-Gems Etched Dies.

Sadly the embossing folder is from the August 2022 Clubs and is sold out. Hope you are feeling inspired! These dies were super fun to create with!

The NEW Hexi-Gems Collection from Spellbinders

I’m so excited to share 3 new cards using products from the new The Hexi-Gems Collection from Spellbinders. Todays project feature the Hexi-Gem Blooms Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set, the Essential Hexi-Gems Etched Dies and the Hexi-Gem Solid Glimmer Hot Foil Plate.

First up is a beautiful notecard made with the Hexi-Gem Blooms Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set. I used Black Foil and my glimmer machine to make the floral image. The plate comes with a die so die cutting is easy. I colored it with light Pastel copics.

To complete the card, I paired it with the Hydrangea Bloom Embossing Folder (Feb 2023 Embossing folder of the month) and the Essential Hexi-Gems Etched Dies for layers. Be sure to save your used Black Foil!

For this next card I used my “used foil” from the above card for the reverse foiling technique with the Hexi-Gem Solid Glimmer Hot Foil Plate. If you don’t know how to reverse foil, you can find the details HERE.

I love how simple the Essential Hexi-Gems Etched Dies makes layering easy! This simple reverse foiled image is striking. That gray cardstock you are seeing is called Fog. it’s a great light color alternative from white!

Finally I have Hot PINK foil. I went bright today.

I kept this super simple. The main image is Hexi-Gem Blooms Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set. I used the solid plate and glimmered a solid hot pink Hexi-gem to match the floral image.

I hope you are inspired to hot foil today!

NEW: The Photosynthesis Collection by Simon Hurley and Spellbinders

Introducing the new Spellbinders Photosynthesis Collection by Simon Hurley. This collection has bunch of new products. Today I am sharing cards with the Floral Stems and Ceramic Vases Die Bundle that coordinate perfectly. I’m also using the Modern Stripes Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Must-Have Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set.

I love to put all the “things” in vases and containers! For this card I created the background with the Plaid Tidings Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and black foil. I love the striking red vase against it.

The Sentiments on all of my cards are also new from the collection called Must-Have Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set.

Next up is this cute trio of planters! The leaves are cut from the Floral Stems and Ceramic Vases Die Bundle. You can also buy the stems and vase dies separately. Pro tip: I cut my leaves in various colors of alcohol ink paper. A great hack for getting texture in your leaves with no effort.

The planters are on a scrap of woodgrain paper layered on the Orange Peel Quilt Embossing Folder. I really like this 3D embossing folder. Im reaching for this one quite a bit!

Next is a simple note card.

Sometimes leaving the sentiment off is a great idea! This is the Stylized Trellis embossing folder.

The Modern Stripes Glimmer Hot Foil Plate come with 3 sizes of stripes. use them straight, on a diagonal or layered like I have here.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope that you a fun and crafty day!
