There is a coordinating die set for all the elements and sentiments too. It's a super cute summer stamp set.

This card uses a few of the blooms set on some fun patterned papers from the Bayfair 6x6 pad. I chose the ink colors to match the papers. The background is white cardstock embossed with the Gingham embossing folder.
My second card adds a couple more of the blooms with small strips of the same patterned paper.
These funky blooms are so fun!

Spotlight Frames and Florals Collection by Lisa Horton- shaker card

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a card from the new Spotlight Frames and Florals collection designed Lisa Horton for Spellbinders. It's a really cool collection with 2 floral die sets, 2 sentiment sets, a circle background die set and a BetterPress circles set. I used a couple die sets and made a shaker element! Check out what I made.

I was excited to use the Layered Iris die set as I don't have any Iris flowers in my stash -can you believe it? I die cut the iris with white cardstock and smooshed them in Distress Oxide inks that I dabbed on my desk and spritzed with a bit of water. I love the variation of color you get with this technique, which you don't get with regular colored cardstock. 
I used the Stitched Edge Circle Background die set to make the shaker part. I like how the shaker bits are peeking through the chevron pattern. I used the new 1/8" wide 3mm Foam Strips to make my shaker well. Those strips are the perfect size and width for shaker cards!
My background was made with the Sun Rays embossing folder and I added some sparkle to each ray with the Clear Shimmer Glitter Brush added to each ray. I also added the Clear Shimmer to some of the Iris petals. 
The sentiment is from the You Make Me Smile Sentiment stamp and die set which is a stamp and die set. The Smile has 2 layering shadow dies (I used 1) and there are 5 coordinating sentiment stamps with outline die!

Before I go, I wanted to let you know Spellbinders is having their Pre-Summer Super Sale with up to 50% off select products! The sale is going on now through Thursday, May 30th!
Supplies used on this card:
Matte Silver cardstock 
Distress Oxide inks: Villainous Poison, Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers, Rustic Wilderness, Wild Honey
Shaker bits and sequins from stash

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!!

Spellbinders May 2024 Club Kits: Wax Seal, Stencil and Small Die of the Month

Hi everyone! I have 1 last card to share using the Spellbinders May 2024 club kits! I combined 3 kits on my card, the Wax Seal, Stencil and a few elements from the Small Die of the Month.
If you missed my earlier post with 2 other card designs, check it out HERE.
***New subscribers to the club kits can sign up NOW through May 27th!***
I love making super clean and simple cards and this one was fun to make. I originally had some larger leaves die cut and even another cute parrot, but in the end I edited it down to 2 sprigs and 3 flowers 😍
This month's Wax Seal of the month is called Tropical Hi and is an oval shape with a flower, leaf, sprig and the sentiment. It has deep grooves which allows you to add metallic ink easily. The wax beads included (in my kit) was the Matcha color which is a fav of mine! I love the design on this seal, it's so happy!
For the background on the circle I used the Stencil of the Month with the color Matcha. I meant to use 2 different greens, like my last card, but I accidentally used the same ink for both stencils and just went with it! The color looks great with the Matcha wax beads.
I added pink rhinestone gems to the flowers centers, even the flower in the wax seal, for a pop of accent color! It was impossible to get the little gems to show pink in the photos, but it looks great IRL.

Everlasting Circle die set

Scrapbook.com Sunny Lane Florals Hello card

 Hi everyone! You all know how much I love a good flower die set. I have my forever favorite, Be Bold Blooms and a few others by Spellbinders, but I have another one to add to the list. It's called Sunny Lane Florals by Scrapbook.com.

Sunny Lane Florals has 27 dies of flowers, leaves and sprigs. There are many ways to layer and create different flowers by mixing and matching the flowers and centers it's a really versatile set. You need to check it out!
I die cut my flowers from bright colors of pink, purple and deep orange as I wanted them to POP off the card against the black and white background.
The background is washi tape from Altenew called Dotted. It is a large 4.5" wide washi tape roll and is the perfect size to create fun backgrounds for colorful floral cards. It is a bit challenging to glue down on top of, even foam tape didn't stick, so I used Artis glue by Scrapbook.com. Once it had a chance to dry, they are glued down for good!
The hello sentiment is from the Thank You Sentiments die set which is a set of 4 words that are medium sized and in a really pretty font!
 I love how this turned out 😍

Supplies used on this card:
Black and White Stripes patterned paper by MFT Stamps

Spellbinders Timeless collection slimline butterfly card

Hi everyone! I have a lovely slimline butterfly card to share today! I have lots of crafting to catch up on, so this post will be short and sweet. The Timeless Collection is part of Spellbinders May 2024 releases. This collection has a variety of elegant dies, borders, sentiments and 6 wonderful butterfly sticker packs!
My card is a mini slimline design measuring 6"x3" and I used 3 butterflies from the Twilight Butterflies sticker pack. The packs have 7 butterflies with 2 layers to them. The adhesive is the entire bottom butterfly layer, so it stays on your card securely. Since there are 7 I was able to splurge using 3 on my card and have with plenty left over!

The sentiment is from the Always You Timeless Sentiments press plates. The set has 8 all occasion sentiments in a gorgeous elegant font. I love this set and can see it being a go-to set for elegant cards and I think it flows well with these beautiful butterflies.
