A Die and a Digi

Hello again! Another week has gone by since I last posted on my blog and this time I have combined two of my favorite cardmaking techniques - coloring and die cutting. I am showing off a project for Kinda Cute, the digi in this equation, as well as one of Spellbinder's die set releases.

I wanted to make a slider card as this was one of the new dies that I had not used yet and do a sentiment reveal with the slider. The digi called Girl and Balloons is a great visual for this card. I colored her with my Prismacolor colored pencils on Canson C' a Grain Drawing paper and then backed her with two cutouts of black cardstock.

The slider was created out of white cardstock and the printed sentiment is printed directly onto the card base. I used Silhouette Studio to get the sizing correct. The video will show how I did that in great detail.

The word "you" is also from a Spellbinders die set. When the slider tab is pulled up, the little girl goes up and the remainder of the sentiment is revealed.

If you are a blog subscriber, you are welcome to download the color chart for the digi.

More magnolias

Today is my final post of a week of Spellbinders dies. I made a different card with the same Magnolia Blooms die that I had used in my previous post. This time the flowers are the focal image rather than the background.

Pick a characteristic

I am on Day 3 of my Spellbinders posts and today I have another project using dies from the new Birthday Celebration collection. I decided it was time to make hubby a card again, he has been on the short end of the recipient list for a while now.

It is Hump Day and I want to show you my second card using Spellbinders products as they celebrate their 20th birthday. I made this card for a friend who is going through a rough time.

Birthday Celebration at Spellbinders

Today I am here with some exciting news. I was contacted by Spellbinders to ask if I would like to participate in their new June release called Birthday Celebration Collection. They sent me some dies to play with from the new collection and here is my first project.

Birthday Flowers

Hello friends, today I have another card to show you that I made with one of the backgrounds that was a result of my play with Distress Oxide Inks a while ago in, which I tried different background inking techniques.


It is Friday again and today I am here to show you my project for the challenge between myself and BożenA. I chose the theme for this one and with all that the world is going through, I felt a good topic would be "Hope" - what inspires us with hope. I really did not know myself at the time how I was going to depict that.
