Just Add Color Blog hop and Giveaway

Hi there crafty friends! Today I'm part of a blog hop showcasing some beautiful new stamps from Spellbinders designer, Stephanie Low.  You probably arrived here from the fabulous Virginia Lu's blog. I'll include the entire list down below, in case you are starting here, and also read on for the giveaway.

The name of the collection is called Just Add Color, and you can see them all here - Just Add Color

I played with two stamp sets for this release.  I made quite a few different designs, but I'm

 showing just a few here today.  I'll have more in the coming days on my social media accounts. The name of the collection is called Just Add Color...and that is exactly what I did.  I love coloring with my Copics, and these images are absolutely perfect for that!

For this card, I stamped a row of Daisies from Loves Me, Loves Me Not stamp set across the bottom of the card panel and colored them with Copics.  I added some extra interest with a white gel pen. I trimmed down the panel and added a simple greeting to the bottom.  I finished with some dew drop embellishments for added interest.

I just loved the floral arrangement on the Mandala Blossoms stamp set, so I stamped it twice, to make sort of a wreath effect. I colored them and then used the Hemstitch rectangle die set (a must have!)  to cut it out, and pop it up. 

For my greeting I used my Spellbinders Hot Glimmer Foil machine, and the dies/foil plates from the February Hot Foil Glimmer of the month kit

On my last card, I stamped the Mandala Blossoms flowers in the corner of a card panel, and colored it with Copics. I used a ruler to draw a line on the back at an angle, and then trimmed out the corner and made a visually interesting angled card.

GIVEAWAY: To celebrate this release, we are giving away a $50 gift certificate to 3 lucky blog readers – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Giveaway closes on Sunday, February 24th 11:59 pm EDT. Winners will be announced in our blog hop post the following Monday. Winner is responsible for shipping cost, duties and taxes.

Everyday Sentiments - Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month February 2019

Today I'm introducing a brand new Kit of the month from Spellbinders.  It's the Glimmer Hot Foil kit of the month for February!  I'm very excited for this because I got my Glimmer Hot Foil machine last fall and I LOVE it.  I want more hot foil plates, and I love the idea that Spellbinders is going to offer exclusive designs each month to kit subscribers.

This month the kit features something we can never have too much of....EVERYDAY SENTIMENTS.  This kit comes with 8 foil plates that are sentiments and two banner dies that coordinate plus a full roll of special Gold foil.

The sentiments are:

Best Wishes
With Love
Just For You
Happy Birthday
Hello There
Miss You
Thank You

I made three cards already with this kit.  I normally have a small stash of cards with florals or watercoloring on them and I have no sentiments added.  I keep these cards handy in case I need a quick card.

Here is a quick little video clip I made showing how I use my Glimmer Hot Foil machine.  I used painters tape to create a little hinge with my shim and top plate, and that keeps everything lined up and from shifting.  You don't need to do that, but it really helps me.  Please see the video below.

I made a huge pile of sentiments with this kit at one time and they are at the ready to add to any card.

Supplies Used:
Glimmer Hot Foil Kit
All Glimmer Plates and Foil
Hemstitch dies
Layered Rose stamp set

Here are the details about this new, exciting kit from Spellbinders.  I've provided links to all the products below.  (Affiliate links used at no cost to you.  Thank you so much for your support)

The Glimmer Hot foil club is only $20 per month and that includes shipping.  

The Glimmer Hot Foil membership subscription includes an exclusive Glimmer Hot Foil Plate Set + One Roll of Foil.  

You can see all the Glimmer Hot Foil products here. There are a lot of fun products coming soon too!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I love comments!


Golden Swan - Spellbinders Card Kit for February

Hey friends,
I'm back today to share something really exciting and fun from Spellbinders!  It is the February 2019 Card kit...and OH MY, it is jam packed with all kinds of great stuff to make beautiful cards, tags and more!

Here is where you can buy the kit: February Kit It is a great value at $35!  You get the cutest Swan die set ever, a 6x6 pad of patterned paper, much of it foiled, tons of foiled die cuts, layered chipboard stickers, cardstock, a stamp set, sequins, card stock, foil card stock, cards, envelopes, foam tape dots, strong adhesive and more!

You can check out the unboxing video here to see all the great stuff that you get, for a great price!

And now for some of the projects I made with this cute card kit.

This elegant card features the main die in the kit..the Golden Swan.  It is so detailed and lovely.  I changed it up and gave her a pink wing.  I backed the card with the tiny foil dot paper included in the 6x6 paper pad...and I even lined the envelope with the pretty paper from the paper pad.  The border die is from my very favorite die set from Spellbinders.  You can find that here.

This card features the main kit die, and some fussy cutting of roses as accents.  I once again used the lovely paper to line the envelope for an elegant birthday card.

The last project is a tag that I made using the beautiful Golden swan die mounted on a tag pocket die from Becca Feeken for Spellbinders.

In addition, Spellbinders offers all the extra items separately (excluding the dies) so if you need to replenish your supplies, you can!  Shop for all the extras here!

I also made several cards using just the extras.  I'll be sharing those in the coming days so be sure to stop in again.

I'm going to post a link below of all the products I used.  (Affiliate links may be used at no additional cost to you, thank you all for your support.)


I hope you love what I did with these as much as I did!  Please leave me a comment below!
