Great, Big, Wonderful World - new Spellbinders collection

Hi there friends!   Today I want to share a new Spellbinders collection from Sharyn Sowell with you. It's called Great, Big, Wonderful World....and its full of really fun and unique dies!

The whole collection can be seen HERE.

I used the Shapeabilities Peace Begins Here die.  This is a large, intricate die that cuts out a GORGEOUS piece.

I have a few cards to share with you today.  These are cards, but really they are so intricate and delicate that they would look pretty just sitting out on your desk.  In fact, mine is in my work office...its a pretty reminder.

Both cards were created the same way.  The card design is my own.  I wanted the beautiful silhouette to stand out from the card, so I created a little ledge at the bottom of the front of my card.

For the black die cut, I created a dramatic ink blended background to put behind the die cut piece.  It's almost glowing, and it is really pretty.  In order to keep the die cut attached, I cut a very small strip of card stock and folded it and tucked it behind the die cut, and attached to the card.  It gives the illusion of it floating in front of the card panel.

The other card was made the same way, but I made the card out of black card stock, and die cut the gorgeous die from a light turquoise card stock.  I used an ink blending brush to color the die cut in different areas.

That's all for today!   I've linked the entire collection below (affiliate links used at no cost to you...THANK YOU for your support!)

Coffee and Tea with Spellbinders FSJ Bloom Box

Hello friends!  I recently had a chance to play with the new Spellbinders + FSJ Bloom Box kit.  What is it you say?  Well, its a kit that comes with everything you need to make 4 cards, all you need to add is ink and adhesive!  The kits come with a great set of stamps, coordinating dies, paper, and embellishments, as well as an idea book with detailed instructions and photos of pre-designed cards!

I played with the November Bloom Box.  I made all the cards in the kit, and an extra one too!

The stamps included in the kit are red rubber cling and they stamp beautifully!  I used Catherine Pooler inks and then added some shading with colored pencils on this card. This card was my own design.

 These last four cards are variations of the designs and paper included in the Bloom Box.  I did not copy them exactly, but they came together really quickly.  I probably spent a total of an hour and half making these five cards!

There are several different boxes available too!

Seasonal cards with Spellbinders Large Die of the Month

Hi there friends!  I had the chance to play with the new Spellbinder's Large Die of the Month kit for December recently.  This month it is a really cool interactive card die that makes it so easy to make a "WOW" type card.  Let's have a look!

The kit is a great value and includes a large interactive card die and a bunch of different accent dies.  You can see the whole kit HERE.

Since it is still holiday card making season for me, I made some cards with the holidays in mind...including a few Thank You cards.

The interactive card die makes it really easy to assemble these.  I used foil paper and cut out all my elements.  I adhered them together and that was it.  SIMPLE.  I can totally see using these dies with all sorts of patterned paper.

These cards all came together quickly using scraps of pretty foil paper.

Next,I took out some Holiday paper, including some leftover from the Spellbinders December card kit.  (The December kit is no longer available, but the extras are!  You can see them HERE)

Did you know that Spellbinders has all sorts of kits for different budgets?  If you are interested, check them out below. (affiliate links used at no cost to you)  Thank you so much for your support.
