Spellbinders Be Bold Blooms

When I first started crafting I was intimidated by die sets that had lots of little pieces. I have grown my skills, but I still challenge myself.

This set is easy to cut, but. I got a little overwhelmed trying to choose a color palette. So, I decided to just recreate the project that was shown on the card for this set.

Using a mix of My Favorite Things & Spellbinders card stock, I created a direct CASE (“Copy And Share Everything”) of the product project example. The base card stock color is Sea Salt from Taylored Expressions.

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you like it, and are inspired to create something too!

Mama Elephant Milkshake & Sweet Treats Kawaii Critters Card

As a crafter, designing a card takes me far longer than the actual construction does. With this card, I actually made two iterations. The first I blended salvage patina distress oxide ink, and assembled my critters. But it just looked like it was missing something….

So I literally took it apart (thank goodness for Undo!) and decided to add picket fence distress pain splatters to the background. That did the trick and I was much happier with the final version.

The sentiment is a set from PinkFresh Studio – foiled in silver.

My Favorite Things Recipe For Happiness – You’re Souper!

This set is one of the super versatile sets where changing the color way gives you a totally different look.

Just like in my other card I made from this set, I found adding just a hint of a stencilled background made a big difference in reducing the white space and really allowing the focus image to pop!

The MFT blue beyond card stock, ink and matching copics (B14) really have this card a whole different look than my first project with this set.

Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers Owl Masculine Birthday Card

Yet another stunning card using the Lovely Layers Owl die set from Honey Bee Stamps. I wasn’t kidding in my first post using this set that just changing the color ways of your cardstock will give this die set an entirely different look & feel to your project!

This was another project from our Crop & Create Delivered Spring 2023 workshop with Kelly. All that we used was some pattered paper (with just a very light hint of texture). I just added a few white bits throughout the owl, along with some flicks from a matching brown copic marker to give that effect of white & darker feathers.

The evergreen watercolor effect background paper is part of an upcoming release – you will NOT be disappointed, the collection is absolutely stunning.

This die set is incredibly easy to use!! Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers die sets may look intimidating, but they provide layering guides, and a ton of inspiration projects for you to run with when creating your own projects.

Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers Owl

Honey Bee lovely layer dies are always gorgeous, and this Owl layers die set is no exception. The variety you can create with this is endless! Masculine cards, Christmas or even just a birthday card for owl or nature lovers.

The pattered paper is from an exclusive paper pack that we received as an attendee of the Spring 2023 Crop & Create Delivered event, taught by Kelley Kohout. This paper may be included in the upcoming release on May 19 2023.

The owl may look complicated, but their layering guides make this extremely easy to assemble. This owl was made from pure white card stock, and I used a combination of colored pencils and a bit of Lost Shadow Distress Oxide ink blending for some of the larger pieces.

Using just pattered paper with smaller texture patterns, or even strictly solid colors will give you a gorgeous result. Stay tuned for more projects featuring this die set (and exclusive paper collection)!
