Spellbinders September 2022 Release

 Hello everyone!  Welcome back to my blog!  Today I want to share a few of the new things that Spellbinders has just released.  I got a chance to play with the Special Pet Delivery and the Winter Borders from the Holiday Cheer Enclosed line.  This first one is modeled after my Siamese cats (of course, lol).  I also used the previously released Happy Camper die set for that 'Merry Christmas' banner.


This second one uses both products again, and I just made the one little pup holding the 'For You' sign.  I love that leaf border from the Winter Borders die set.


My next couple of cards were made using things from the Christmas Flourish line by Becca Feeken.  That Nordic Ornament die is absolutely gorgeous!


This next card uses the Joy Flourish Doily and the Holly Flourish embossing folder.  That embossing folder is perfect for those bigger cards like this A7 card.


Lastly, I made this super fun (and large) nostalgic paper box.  This uses the Hexagon Base and the Home for the Holidays paper from the Christmas Flea Market line.  This box will hold all of the Christmas cards I'm hoping to get this year.


If you'd like to see all of these in a video where I talk more about them, you can see it here or over on my YouTube Channel.

NEW Simon Hurley Create Stamps and Lunar Pastes

 Have you seen all of the new Simon Hurley Create products?  I'm playing with it all today, and I was able to make two Christmas cards.  This first one uses the Polar Penguins with the Evergreens Background.  I also pulled in the Whimsical Ovals stencil with the Midnight Snack Lunar Paste.

My second card uses the Polar Penguins with the Berries & Branches Background.  I paired those up with the Grand Greenery Stencil and blended on some Fake Plant Lunar Paste.


You can see how I made both of these cards and see all of the new products here in the video down below or you can watch it over on my YouTube Channel.


I hope this makes you want to get inky, maybe even start on those Christmas cards.

Spellbinders New July Release

 Welcome back to my blog!  Spellbinders is having a new release, and I'm sharing a bunch of projects from the various collections.

Let's start with a couple of projects from the Stitchmas Christmas Collection.  This first one is the Stitched Petal Diamond Background.  I did this one using a gold and a red thread, and I LOVE how it turned out! 

This next card I'm sharing uses the Stitched Diamond Argyle Background.  I made this one with a dark navy blue cardstock and some gold thread.  Both of these backgrounds could be used at any time of year, and they while they are a labor of love, if you enjoy stitching, you'll enjoy these. 


Our next collection is the Celebrate the Season Collection.  My first card uses the Tweet Cardinal die.  I used it with the Essential Diamond dies and the Merry Glimmer Sentiments.


Here is a card I made using the Stylish Merry Christmas die.  This one also uses the Essential Diamonds dies.


The next collection is the Winter Garden Collection.  My first card uses the Winter Evergreen dies along with the Stylish Merry Christmas.


I also have a card using the Letterbox dies, and this was paired up with our Winter Evergreen dies as well as the Merry Glimmer Sentiments.


Our next collection is the Glimmer Greetings Collection.  My first card uses the Essential Diamonds dies.  I also used the Glooming Ornament and the Merry Glimmer Sentiments.


My next two cards focus on the Blooming Ornament and the Merry Glimmer Sentiments (which can obviously be used for so many of your Christmas cards!)


Lastly, we have the Parcel and Post Collection.  I adore this collection!  My first card uses the Parcel & Post Mailbox dies with the All Occasion Mailbox Greetings.


And my last card uses both of those previous products as well as the Parcel & Post Heart Decor.


The following video will share all of these cards, but also shows you exactly how I made this card from start to finish!  You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel.

Triangular Pop Up Vase with Scrappy Tails


What a fun way to display paper art. . .a Pop Up Vase!  Welcome back to my blog.  Today I'm sharing a few examples that I made using the Scrappy Tails A7 Tall Triangular Pop Up Vase.


My first example pairs the vase with the Anthurium die.  I used a few of the layers to make my vase out of the Tropical Bliss paper pad.


My second example pairs the vase with the Cockatoo die.  I just love the birds in this collection and they are so much fun to put together.


My third and final example uses the Birds of Paradise die with the vase.  I love the colorful papers, and this one will fit inside of a 5x7 envelope perfectly when it is folded flat.  Wouldn't this be a fun way to receive a piece of art?

If you'd like to see how I made the first example, you can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel.

Scrappy Tails Tropical Bliss Card Kit

 


It sure feels tropical out there here in southern Georgia, lol.  I got a chance to play with the first ever card kit from Scrappy Tails, and it's called Tropical Bliss!

My first card used the flamingos.

I made my second one a slimline and used the cockatoo.  I love the vibrant colors of those patterned papers.


My third card used the stencil that came in the kit, and I paired it up with the parakeet from that huge stamp set.


My fourth card uses the parrot from the stamp set.  


And my final card uses the Parrot die from the kit.  Those dies have a fun amount of detail!


I also have a video that I made showing how I made each of these cards and how I put the parrot together.  You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel.
