Alcohol Ink flowers with Spellbinders Small Die of Month Kit

Hi there friends! 
Today I'm playing with the April Spellbinders Small Die of the month kit.  These kits are a great value and an inexpensive way to add to your Spellbinder's die collection.
This month, the dies are one of my favorite things to create with...FLOWERS!

For this card, I first made a few specialty papers.  I started with glossy cardstock, and I made a few different combinations with Alcohol ink.  I love the look of alcohol inks and I really enjoy the process.  I have built up a small stash of pretty alcohol ink papers that I have created...no two are alike!

I cut the flower pieces out of my paper and sat down and created my garden. 

I used my Spellbinders Prizm die cutter....it is the perfect size for this project!  It's very convenient to have this on my desk, literally, at my fingertips.

I built my flowers and then mounted them on black card stock.  I made a "grass" border with some scraps.

For the final touch, I added some clear drops to the flower centers to give it even more dimension.

That's it for my card today!  I have provided a link below where you can find the supplies. 



Birds Singing Happy Birthday with Spellbinders

Hello there friends!  I've got another card today using a beautiful die from Spellbinders.

The die is the Shapeabilities Birds Singing border die by Sharyn Sowell.  It is a beautiful botanical element that is PERFECT for a longer card,  a mixed media project, junk journal or even a scrapbook page.  

For this card, I first cut out the birds singing on to a smooth white cardstock.  I colored the different elements using my Copic markers.  The colors I used are as follows:
Birds: B000, B01, B04
Roses: R21, R22
Leaves: YG03, YG06
Flourishes: Y01, Y08

I used foam mounting tape to mount the entire piece to a textured cardstock panel and then added my greeting.

A very simple and quick card, made possible by this gorgeous die from Spellbinders.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I've provided a link below to the supplies I used.



Card creator floral cards with Spellbinders

Hi there friends!  Today I have a few cards to show you using a very versatile die from Spellbinders!

This die is the Card Creator Flower Garden from Sharyn Sowell.  It is a set of 4 dies that includes a beautiful floral frame and outline die, plus a tag and leaf accent. This die set is great because you can pretty much create a quick card in a few minutes.

My first card, I used the die on Bristol Smooth card stock.  I used some light messy watercoloring to color the flowers and leaves.

I cut out the tag accent and leaves.  I stamped a greeting on the tag, and I colored the leaf accents with watercolor.  I added a few water drop embellishments and then used foam tape to mount the entire piece on a top folding card panel.  Easy, and SOOOOO pretty!

The second card was made almost the same way, but I cut out two panels from the flower garden die, and then I cut out the roses from one panel and colored them with some light watercolor.  I mounted those, and the leaf accents to the panel to add some more interest and dimension.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.   I have provided a link to supplies below.
