Spellbinder Flowers

Hi friends! Today I have some fun projects using Spellbinder Flower Cutting Dies. I’m a big fan of flower cutting dies because they are a tool that I use often.

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

Debbie made this beautiful card using Sunshine & Smiles Artful Card Kit and Belated Birthday Wishes Cutting Die. Debbie also used the 8 Fancy Flourish Cutting Dies by Anna Griffin to make the pretty swirls extending from under the flowers.

She used both the Laced Flowers Cutting Die and Shapeabilites Succulent and Mum Cutting Dies and cut her blossoms from Pastel Cardstock. Then she used Purple, Yellow/Green and Pink Ink Pads to color the edges and blossom centers.

Cosmic Shimmer Specialist Acrylic Glue is perfect for layering the die cut pieces and gluing the Rainbow Sparkletz to the flower centers and around the card.

This next project is actually a 5 1/2″ square frame made with Special Day Frame Cutting Dies, pink and ivory 12×12 Spectrum Bright Cardstock Papers and white cardstock.

I used a Medium Stylus Tool to curve the different sizes of petals.

I also wrapped the petal edges around the Stylus Tool to slightly curve them.

After coloring the petal edges, with Golden Glow Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish, I used Cosmic Shimmer Specialist Acrylic Glue to layer and glue the flowers. Barefoot Beach Sparkletz were the perfect touch for the flower centers.

Finally, I cut a frame stand from white cardstock and glued it to the back of the frame.

Love & Friendship Cards

Hello friends! Today I have some sweet card treats for you! Stampingbella is one of my favorite stamp companies because they have adorable artwork.

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

Isn’t this card the sweetest? Debbie used Joy Ride Paper Pack, Pink Jewel Border Dazzles™ Stickers, Butterfly Girl Brianna Stamp and Words Sweet Stamp Set for the greeting.

Debbie used Spectrum Noir Pens to color her Butterfly Girl and even added Coral Coast Sparkletz to the wings.

Debbie also used a Stylus to shape the Pastel Cardstock flowers made with Shapeabilities Flower Cutting Dies. She added a little ink to the edge of each petal before gluing the blossoms together.

For this card I used Lemonade Paper Pack and Up, Up & Away Stamps.

I cut the Varied Hearts Border from black cardstock and again from red daisy paper. I filled in the black border with hearts from the red daisy border as shown.

After coloring with Spectrum Noir Pens I used Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff on the unicorn mane to add dimension.

For a final touch of sparkle I glued Red Hearts Sparkletz among the stamped hearts.

Amazing Impresslits by Tim Holtz

Hi friends! Today I’m excited to bring you some great little embossing/cutting folders called Impresslits from Tim Holtz. They are tiny folders, easy to store, that both emboss and cut any number of paper materials, such as cardstock, vellum or metallic foil.

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

This card uses Let It Shine Artful Card Kit for the background, 3-D Laurel, 3-D Provincial and 3-D Medallion Impresslits Embossing Folders with Dies.

I used Metallic Gold Paper to create each of the Impresslit embellishments.

I inked the edges and surfaces with Jet Black StazOn® Ink Pad because it is a permanent ink and won’t rub off the metallic surface.

I finished my card by adding a cut-out and greeting from Let It Shine Artful Card Kit. I also created a flower from Shapeabilities Succulent and Mum Flower Cutting Die and added Enamel Dots to the center and around the card.

Debbie’s beautiful card uses Floral Musings Paper Pack, Double Stitched Oval Dies, Birthday Birds Stamp & Die Set, 3-D Burst, 3-D Flourish and 3-D Laurel Impresslits Embossing Folders.

She used Blue Parakeet Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish on paper to create her own unique color. After letting it dry she used the 3-D Laurel Impresslits Embossing Folder to both emboss and cut.

Lavender Blue Cosmic Shimmer Opal Polish and Raspberry Sorbet Cosmic Shimmer Lustre Polish were used on the 3-D Flourish and 3-D Burst Impresslits Embossing Folders with Die. I love the bright colors!


Also some Enamel Dots add to the cards texture and sparkle!

Here’s a quick little video from Tim Holtz that I’ll think you’ll enjoy.

ABC & 123 Cutting Dies

Hi crafty friends! Today I’m excited to bring you some cute cards that use Alphabet Letter Die Set (with Filigree Pattern Overlay) and Number Cutting Die Set. Both are from Practical Publishing and are versatile must-have tools for any paper crafter.

For this sweet card Debbie pared The Charleston Paper Pack with Silver Sparkles Holographic Paper.

She cut the large “H” and “B” from burgundy paper, using Alphabet Letter Die Set. She topped each letter with Filigree Pattern Overlay cut from Silver Sparkles Holographic Paper. So pretty! She finished the words using silver Happy Birthday Dazzles™ Stickers.

Debbie colored the Bree Loves Buttercream stamp with La Plume Markers and added additional sparkle to the card by gluing Rainbow Sparkletz to the bow and crown.

To keep the Birthday theme going I used Dots & Stripes Paper Pack, Balloon Cutting Dies to create this fun card.

I die cut a circle from the card front using 8 Circle Double Stitched Cutting Dies. I glued Silver Ripple Holographic Paper numbers (using Number & Suffix Die Set) to the card inside back.

Die cut balloons from black and red dot papers and glue and foam tape to the card with some extending off the edges. Place Happy Birthday Dazzles™ Stickers along the bottom of the card.

It’s also a fun idea to foam tape a number to the center of a balloon!

Here’s a quick little video from Practical Publishing featuring their Card Making Magic Collection, which includes all of the cutting dies used here today.

Thanks for joining me today. Be sure to stop by next week when I feature cards from Anna Griffin’s card making kit, All About Love. Happy Crafting!

Autumn Page & Card

Hello friends, I don’t know about you, but I find that I take the most pictures during autumn. With back to school and all of the Halloween and Thanksgiving festivities I have so many cute photos! If you are a scrapbooker like me you’re always on the lookout for page ideas and supplies.

The Falling Into Autumn Paper Pack includes 12 beautiful papers, 2 each of 6 designs, that include all of the rich colors we love this time of year: Golden yellow, brown, teal, burgundy and dark orange.

I paired the Falling Into Autumn Papers with Steampunk Die-Cuts because adding a few gears was fun to use with the “Kids with Dad” theme.

 

Notice that I placed the Steampunk Die-Cut frame directly over the photo. I did this because it’s almost like zooming into the subjects faces.

(Tip: this same technique could be used on a card front, replacing the photo with a stamped image or Dazzles™ Sticker greeting.)

This fun birthday card was easy to make. I covered each half of the card with both golden brown and teal Falling Into Autumn Papers. I used my paper cutter to cut the gear border in half (lengthwise) and glued it to the top and bottom edges. I even cut a small label in half and used the pieces on each side of the large label to make a border.

A little foam tape under the balloon and butterfly provided dimension and then I finished with a Black Tiny Words & Phrases Dazzles™ Sticker.

Thanks for joining me today. Don’t forget that our HUGE 60% Off Sale Ends on Saturday, November 17. 

After the sale ends Paper Wishes will be launching NEW Products for Christmas and Webisodes will be back! Here’s a sneak peek for our November 21 Webisode.

Happy crafting!

Season Of Thanks

Hi crafty friends! November is a month where we remember to be thankful for family and friends. Maybe you send lovely fall themed “Thankful” cards to brighten someone’s day, but why stop there?

Here are a few cheerful “Thank You” cards that you can make and send all year.

For this card I used the Label Triple Easel Die-Cut Card. One of the many things I love about the Triple Easel Die-Cut Cards is that they look like you spend hours engineering and decorating them, but this card took less than one hour to make.

After covering my card pieces with Fresh Cut Paper, I applied black ink to the edges, stamped my message (using Happy, Hello, Love & Thanks Stamp Set) and then foam taped Fresh Cut Die-Cuts flowers to the easel labels.

I’m in love with the Happy, Hello, Love & Thanks Stamp Set. Take a look at all of the message combinations you can make!

For this card I used Script Greetings Cutting Dies and once again Fresh Cut Paper and Fresh Cut Die-Cuts.

I added red and blue Enamel Dots to the flower center and near the greeting.

Don’t forget to check out our HUGE 60% Off Sale at Paper Wishes…while it lasts. We have something new we are working on so subscribe now and don’t miss a thing!

Happy crafting,

A Special Halloween Treat

Hi crafty friends, as Halloween grows near Paper Wishes has put together a special treat for you. This Halloween Kit includes everything you see here:

 

Back Dazzles™ Stickers with paper for adorable page embellishments. I like to use chalk or alcohol pens to add shading to the Dazzles™ characters.

For this card Susan backed the Dazzles™ Stickers with glitter paper.

Debbie cut apart the vinyl tag to make a card greeting. Very cleaver!

A dark background really makes these bones pop!

Double-Pocket Treat Die-Cut Cards are also included in this bundle.

They make sweet gifts for friends any time of year.

I like putting a sweet note on the tags and packets of tea in the pockets.

That’s all for today. Thanks for joining me and I’ll be back next week with some festive holiday decorations and gift packaging. Happy crafting!
