Hello, friends! I’m popping in today to share a few cards created with the Spellbinders July 2019 Card Kit of the Month. This kit, called Shellebrate, includes a 6×6 paper pad, clear stamps, an adorable die set, tons of embellishments, and more, giving you everything you need to make over 10 cards!

This is such an amazing release – not only stamp sets and dies, but also stencils and a brand new stamping mat!

You know how much a love flowers, especially Altenew designs, so I couldn’t pass on the Charming Doodles Stamp Set.

The dainty look of this set caught my eye; what I love is the variety of shapes and sizes that allow you to create an interesting and dreamy background.

Here is the layout I created with it; very simple but also delicate and pretty. The doodles in this stamp set are beautiful!

I started by stamping my images on smooth white cardstock. I used the following Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Chamomile, Sunray, Marigold, Snapdragon, Crimson, Baby Pink, Just Green, and the brand new Obsidian Pigment Ink.

I then created a big cluster on which I placed my photo. I used foam dots to give dimension and layer all my elements. The sentiments are from the Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection.

I also added some of the stamped images along the right side of the page, just to complete the look. Easy peasy!

Now onto the prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on theAltenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 7/16/2019 for a chance to win.

They’ll also draw a winner to receive a $20 gift certificate from the comments left on each designer’s blog on the blog hop list below. All winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 7/16/2019.

Your next stop is Norine‘s blog. Happy hopping!

Spellbinders – June 2019 Large Die of the Month

Hello everyone. I’m back today to share a new project created with the June 2019 Spellbinders Large Die of the Month kit. This month’s Festive Wreaths Slider Card large die set is perfect for making unique cards, scrapbook pages, and more. I love all the dies included in the kit, ideal to create a wreath for every season and some holidays, too.

I chose the gorgeous Pink Paislee Indigo & Ivy collection. I can’t stop using it! So beautiful!

I went with the flower die for the wreath; it gives you three different sizes that you can layer for a dimensional look. It’s also a good way to mix and match pattern paper for a lovely look.

Here are some close ups:

I only created one card with this kit, but as soon as I have a bit of time to play with it, I’ll make several for sure! This kit is a must have! Spellbinders offers several monthly memberships. They are worth checking out, as you get not only the products but also project inspiration, discounts and gifts!

Have a wonderful day!
