Bouquet of Flowers


I don't know about you but I'm really missing flowers lately. The Christmas Poinsettia is gone, and the hibiscus bulbs I had in water jars are bloomed out. Today I will have to make my own flowers and dream of spring time in the yard. I'm playing along at Die Cut Divas Challenge where this time they're looking for FLOWERS!
My card today is made with Spellbinder dies. I started by die cutting a large Picot Petite Oval with white cardstock. I topped it with the Bouquet of Flowers die cut. The set includes all the pieces you need to create a pretty wrapped bunch of flowers including the little bow!
I added a sentiment from a retired sentiment set called Giving Occasions. Time to go shopping and find some that are available and more current!
 
I cut a whole bunch of flowers in different colors and attached them to the stems. So this bouquet includes three floral sprays - one in reds, one in yellows and one in pinks. The long green foliage I cut from shades of dark and light green.

I wont lie.. it took a while to cut all the little bitty flowers, but I think they look beautiful. I love the cuts in the petals - it's like sunshine on a card!

Let's Do Coffee Valentine!


Hi and thanks for stopping by! I hope you're keeping warm! Today I'm sending some heart filled warm wishes with a few coffee to go cups. Make mine a hot chocolate please! I'm also linking up to Craft Rocket Challenges where this time they're asking you to use a die cut. That's easy peasy for me since die cuts are my favorite craft supply.

My card starts with two die cut Nesting Coffee Cups. I wanted to dress them up for Valentine's Day so I added some nested hearts to the cup sleeves.

To keep it bright and cheery I layered the cups on a rainbow print background. The paper is from the Waffle Flower JJ's Rainbow Pad. The pads are 5.5 x 8.5" and loaded with heavy weight card stock prints. You can create an A2 size card base by simply folding one sheet in half.

The floral cup prints are from the Special Delivery pad, and the polka dot paper is from the Half and Half Dots Christmas pad. I like that the pads are easy to mix - that the colors match.  I added a real wood coffee stir stick that I helped myself to at the coffee bar. 

A Mistletoe Wreath cut from white cardstock give the cups a fussier look and the circle reminds me of coffee rings on the table. The Coffee Shop Talk stamp set has the perfect sentiments for all your coffee loving friends and occasions.
Stay cozy and keep smiling!

Spellbinders January 2022 Card Kit


We'll I've got a little surprise for you today! I'm sharing three cards made with the Spellbinders January 2022 Card Making Club Kit. Why is it a surprise? Because I've been asked to make with their kit for the 2022 year!

The kit is really a great assortment of products. Here's a peek at this month's kit. Card kit's have come a long way and they just keep getting better. It's awesome getting a package delivered straight to my front door every month with product chosen to coordinate.

The Spellbinders Card Kit includes EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING you need to make cards including a 6" pad of paper, card stock, folded card bases and envelopes, stickers, die cut images, a stamp set and even a die set that you'll have long after everything else is gong. This kit even includes a roll of double sided tape and a square of foam adhesive to "pop" your images.

The theme this time is LOVE - perfect for Valentine's day next month! So you get a whole month to play and hopefully.. if you got it all done they're ready to mail for the holiday.

The images are super cute and I love all the gold accents throughout. You'll find gold glitter foam stickers, gold accented die cuts and gold stamped sentiments.

The images include cute pups (puppy love?), hot air balloons, rainbows, hearts, arrows and so much more. And you get TWO of each of the images so if you really like a card you made.. you can make TWO!
The Spellbinders Card Making Kit is $38.50 a month and that includes shipping in the US. You can subscribe and receive a surprise in the mail every month, or you can wait until the first of the month when the kit is revealed. I haven't been disappointed yet.

I hope you'll stop back later in the month when I'll be sharing more cards made with this beautiful kit.
