Warm & Wonderful

When I saw this drink set in the latest release from The Greetery, I knew it was going to live at my house. Who doesn't want a warm & wonderful drink in the fall and winter!
I love these kind of stamp sets that allow you to build dimension and are so expertly designed.


Warm & Wonderful Stamps and Dies

I used Distress Oxide ink for all three of these cards.  
The apple cider drink was stamped with Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy and Gathered Twigs.
  
I used the Shiplap Builder Die for the background.

The sentiment is in the stamp set.


Warm & Wonderful Stamps and Dies

This cute hot chocolate drink with whip cream and sprinkles was stamped in Brushed Corduroy, Gathered Twigs and Ground Espresso.

One of each drink is on this card and the colors are the same as above. The sentiment is in the stamp set.

Spellbinders Large Die of The Month - Stitched Ornament & Display

The Large Die of the Month for October is called Stitched Ornament & Display.



This is something we haven't had before and is really quite easy to make.  You can stitch the ornament or use markers to faux stitch as you have seen me do before.

This set has 16 cutting dies and the finished project is 5" x 7".

I used the brand new Holiday Floral Swag Embossing Folder with this project.  I inked the inside of the folder on the debossing side before inserting the cardstock pieces. 


I used Fashion Gold Embellishments on the ornament.

This folder is absolutely beautiful!

Witch, Please!

I have another card with the If The Broom fits stamps.  This time I've used it with the Layering Vintage Labels Dies.
This die is the outside frame connected to the piece that the witch is on and then has seven additional layering pieces. 


I've got a little bit of ink blending in the background in Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink.
The images are colored with Copic markers.

Stitched Hi Card

A while back I showed you a card with just the backing of this die and told you I had a stitching card to show you later...then I forgot. 😎
Hope you weren't holding your breath waiting! 


I stitched the 'hi' in a very pale minty green and then mounted it on the layering piece.  I cut the Leafy Sprig Die with Vellum and put it behind.  The sentiment is embossed with white embossing powder and the card base is embossed with the Party Spots Embossing Folder.

Winter Tales Ornament Gift Tags

I'm so excited for my friend, Zsoka Marko and her new collaboration with Spellbinders.  It is called Winter Tales and is inspired by her love of folklore.

I have the ornaments and the embossing folder but there are a few more pieces in the collection if you would like to check them out.


I turned the ornaments into To: From: gift tags and packaged them in a sack for gift giving.

Winter Tales Collection Nordic Ornaments
Winter Tales Collection Ski Lodge Embossing Folder

Old and now discontinued tag die.

Merry Christmas is from Sunday Drive All Occasion Sentiments


I embossed the sack with the Ski Lodge Embossing Folder.  I haven't done this in a really long time and now I remembered how much I love it!  Paper bags/lunch bags turn out great too.



Congratulations Zsoka, I am SO happy for you!
