Spellbinders Country Road Dies by Annie Williams


Hello there!  Welcome back to my blog!  I'm super excited to be sharing some of the dies from the new Country Road by Annies Williams line.  They are GORGEOUS, and I really did have the best time making some cards with these dies.  There is so much use in these, that I can see playing with them throughout the whole year!

My first card uses the Country Wheelbarrow and the Seasonal Décor dies, and I paired them up with the Holly Flourish embossing folder and the Dancin' Holidays sentiments.  I never pass up an opportunity to make a Christmas card, and I just love how this turned out!

My second card is a reflection of my favorite season which is Fall!  I used the Country Wheelbarrow, the Seasonal Décor, the Rustic Garden, and the Garden Builder dies.  The sentiment comes from the Love Never Fails set.

My final card is just sweet.  Naturally I had to make the kitty a Siamese, and I used the Rustic Garden and the Garden Builder sets.  I'm so happy with how this set of cards came out.  I love just die cutting a bunch of elements, coloring them up, and then putting them together to make some cards.  I do have a video to share how the barrel, the wheelbarrow, and the wheel are easily put together, and I also share how I made the first card.  You can see it here or over on my YouTube Channel.

Spellbinders May 2023 Quick & Easy Card Kit


The new Spellbinders Quick & Easy Card Kit is out for May 2023, and it's a very beautiful color palette.  I have 5 cards to share with you.

My first card is a flat shaker that utilizes some of the packaging with those gorgeous sprinkles that come in the kit.

The second card uses a few patterned papers with the ephemera and the chipboard stickers.

The third card was a bit more of a challenge for me.  Not only does it use some ephemera and patterned paper, but it uses the chipboard stickers and puffy stickers as well.

The fourth card is so soothing to me with that bluegreen woodgrain patterned paper.  That color palette is really something!

My final card was so fun, because I decided to make a whole background out of ampersands!  Talk about a fun card with some great texture.

I do have a video showing the unboxing of the May 2023 Spellbinders Quick & Easy Card Kit if you'd like to see what's in it.  You can watch that here or over on my YouTube channel.
