Embossing Powder Flowers

Hello crafty friends, I am back today with another card that is my project for the ongoing challenge with BożenA. This time it was my turn to stipulate the theme and I chose to use a Christine Stokes video for inspiration and create a focal point with embossing powder.


I did not have a die with wells like she has in her video and so I just placed the powder in circles on the parchment paper and then ironed it. Once it was cooled enough, I die cut the embossed circle in the parchment paper with a daisy die from my stash, lining up the golden center with the center of the die. I made two such flowers.

Using a Spellbinders die, I cut the "foliage" out of white cardstock and a glitter gold washi tape sheet and stuck the parts together. I then glued the stems onto the back of the flowers.


I made a background by blending three Distress Oxide ink colors together on Bristol Smooth cardstock and added the card panel to a kraft cardbase. I arranged the flowers and foliage on the front of the card.


The card was completed with a little die cut butterfly and a "hugs" sentiment.

I am excited to see what BożenA has come up with, I am sure it will be great. Please take a moment to visit her post and see and leave her a comment while you are there.

Giant Bunny Ears

Hello friends. Today I have the first card to show you that I made with two new things! I joined the Waffle Flower Sneak Peek club and got the first one in January. This kit included the dies for the bunny ears headband and the strip sentiment. I also discovered some new toner foil.


A sealed bouquet

Hello friends, I am a little late in the day on my blog post today. Work life is still taking a lot of my time at the moment, being the beginning of a new year. But I am seeing light at the end of it all and so I hope to be sharing more regularly again. Today I have another card I made with the Sealed by Spellbinders collection and my faux wax seal stamp and die set.


Layered windmill quilts

Today I am here with a project made with dies that Spellbinders sent me to create with. This is the Layered Windmill die set from the Home Sweet Quilt Collection by Becca Feeken. I didn't have any quilt dies in my stash, so I really enjoyed working with these.


Floral Christmas ornaments

Today I am sharing my last post for 2022. I cannot believe how the time has flown and we have completed another year. I am sure that you have found the same. I have a batch of Christmas cards to show you today that I made this year.


Faux Wax Seals

If you are in the crafting world here in the US, you may already know that Spellbinders released a new series of items to coordinate with a wax seal. The release is called "Sealed by Spellbinders". I love the long stemmed die cuts, but with my small crafting space, I was not wanted to add another element to it, so here is a great alternative for those who don't want to do the whole wax melting thing.


Colorful Neighborhood

Today I am finally here to show you my project for the next challenge between BożenA and myself. She had to have lots of patience with me this time as I travelled out of the country and prepared for my craft show all in the time since she mentioned the topic.
