Royal Flourish Glimmer collection by Becca Feeken

Hi Ya friends!

I'm so thrilled to have been invited to play with the Royal Flourish Glimmer Plate collection by Becca Feeken! It‘s such a lovely feminine collection of plates that can add a kiss of foil glimmer, shimmer, and shine to any crafty project!
I am guest posting over on the Spellbinders blog today, sharing these first three cards, (shown below) over there in more detail.
And as promised on that post at Spellbinders, I have two more cards made with the Royal Flourish collection and the supplies from the June Card Kit of the Month.
Here they are:
This one features the Imperial Adorned Ovals foiled in Silver onto an ink smooched background and embellished with stickers and paper from the kit.

This last card has the PRISM foil heated with the Petite Looking Glass Frame onto yellow cardstock from the June kit. I like how the Prism Glimmer foil compliments both the gold foiling on the sentiment banner and the gold sequins.
Those sweet heart die cuts are from teh kit as well.

I have really enjoyed using the Royal Flourish Glimmer Plate collection to add a little something extra special to my cards!

Here is a list of Spellbinders supplies used for all 5 cards:

Other supplies:
Strathmore 140lb water color cold press paper
Altenew inks
Kuretake Zig clean color real brush markers
Scrapbook liquid adhesive
Dimensional foam tape
Altenew washi tape

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by today :) I hope you enjoyed seeing my projects using the Glimmer Hot Foil System Royal Florish by Becca Feeken! 

Happy crafting!

STAMPlorations June Theme & Sketch Challenge

Hello STAMPlorations fans.

As I understand the sorrow that Shery is going through after the sudden loss of her father, I wanted to encourage her and anyone else walking through a valley at this time. It has been a great comfort to seek His strength and gain comfort through Him, knowing that My Lord will never leave me.

Here is my card for the JUNE Theme and Sketch challenge.
To make the card:
  • I used the Plaid Maker stencil to create a "V" pattern on the cardfront with Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Crack Pistachio Distress Oxides...By adding a large post-it note down the center of the panel as I inked the stencil at an angle.
  • Then I stamped the Blooms several times
  • Let the inks dry
  • And finished with heat embossing the sentiment with black EP
  • Added a few color details to the flower centers with alcohol markers and white Gel pen
  • Embellished with sequins 
  • Trimmed the finished panel down to 4x5.25" and popped it on to an A2 sized card base

Here is the Theme and Sketch graphics for June. 

Looking forward to seeing what you Create for this month's challenge at STAMPlorations!

Here are the details for the THEME and Sketch challenge:
  • Link up any type of project(s) based on the theme, the sketch, or both.
  • You must use stamps in your project(s) -- rubber, clear, or digi from any company. Non-STAMPlorations stamps are OK.
  • Link up to 6 entries and link up to as many other challenges as you want.
  • You must display the challenge graphic in your post (if linking from your blog) and link back to the challenge post (not just the main blog) in order to be eligible to win (and receive the corresponding prize).
  • Link up by June 30th, 11:55 p.m. Pacific time.

Thanks for stopping by and have a Blessed day!

Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month - June

Hello and welcome cardmaking friends!! 

I'm over the moon excited to share the Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month - June with you.  The colors featured in this kit scream SUMMER! ..and yes there is even ice cream in the box :)) Take a look at the list of goodies inside the box.

***Here's a quick 1 minute video from my IG to see my unboxing, first hand what's inside this kit.
And here are my first 6 cards created using supplies only in the kit. (I'll be sharing 5 more cards later this month featuring GLIMMER plates and the June card kit supplies)

It was thrilling to get back to the art of pure papercrafting by mixing/matching pattern papers, and the die-cut shapes creating freestyle vignettes!

Card 1:

 Card 2:
LOVE the sentiment on this journal card!!
Card 3:
HOW adorable and FUN is this Balloon dog Die?!?!

We even had a Sunnies party with Teddy Timmy :))) You can make your own glasses for fun photo booths using the dies that come in the kit!!!
Card 4:
 For this one, can you find the candle turned on it's side and used as an accent to the sentiment?

Card 5:
The only stamping I did was for a tone on tone pink swirly pop background using the Super Chill stamp set in the kit.
Card 6:
 As you can see, I got the sewing machine out for stitchy goodness on many of these cards :)
There you go!  6 cards so far from one Card Kit of the Month..5 more cards to share in my next post and there's still so much left over for more cardmaking therapy in the future.

SPELLBINDERS has a Club Kit of the Month for all kinds of paper craft needs!

And there are VALUE CLUBS for those who wish to join several monthly clubs for a great price!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today..Hope you are inspired to #NeverStopMaking!

Hello everyone! 

Today I'm joining the gals at STAMPlorations to inspire you with projects for the Things with Wings celebration of SPRING!  All month long we are featuring projects that include butterflies, birds, bees, and anything else that can fly.

Things with Wings Part 3 Linky party
For my card, I colored a new Digital print that is in the newest STAMPlorations shop. There are 6 new THINGS with WINGS DIGIS.

Here's my card:

 Can you tell how enjoyable it was coloring this A2 size DIGI with alcohol markers? I added some extra details with PITT pens and White Gel pen on the wings of the butterflies.
 After the coloring was finished I heat embossed the ENCHANTING sentiment onto a strip of vellum using Rose Gold embossing powder.

To complete the card:

  • Tore the edges of the vellum for more interest 
  • Trimmed the colored panel down 
  • Wrapped the vellum strip around my card front on the two sides
  • Adhered the whole thing to a cardbase

I really had a great time looking for the leaves, flowers and butterflies in this DIGI. It was like an I SPY game!

STAMPlorations May Theme & Sketch Challenge

Happy Fri-YAY!
Today I have a card for the May Theme and Sketch challenge at STAMPlorations.
I simply could not pass up the THEME: CUPCAKES:) for a masculine birthday card.
Take a Look:

To make the card:

  • First I stamped a background using the PARTY MATES and KATHRYN'S BIG WISH stamp sets in blue, yellow, green and brown ink 
  • Then I softly brushed on some blue color with an oval brush
  • Added some splatter from metallic sprays
  • Stamped the sentiment from KATHRYN'S BIG WISH in black
  • Cut and assembled the scrumptious CUPCAKE Builder #1 dies from various pattern papers 
  • Cut a strip from a MAKE MARKS 2 stenciled with texture paste for embellishment 
  • Finished with few sequins and punched out circle from the stenciled paper for a cupcake topper:)

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope to see your creations in the gallery at the  May Theme and Sketch challenge.

NEW stencils at STAMPlorations by Helen G.

Hello All!  
Today is an exciting day at Stamplorations, as we are sharing projects made using new MAKE MARKS STENCILS from Helen G. Designs! Yes, our very own Mixed Media design team Member,  Helen Gullett, has designed 6 new stencils for us to play with. Each stencil is cut from high quality transparent blue stencil material and features 2 separate patterns

Take a Look:

I enjoyed inking these stencils with oval brushes to create soft patterns and backgrounds for die cut sentiments.

Make Marks 2 - ARTplorations Stencil -  Helen G. Designs
Make Marks 4 -
ARTplorations Stencil -
Helen G. Designs

I created a stencil and mask swatches with a Bloom Happy Coordinating Dies - CUTplorations and then inked the all three stencils: Make Marks 2, 4, & 5. Then added a drop shadow to each Swatch for dimension. Popped the HUGS die cut on and called it done.
For the second card, I masked off the edges of the cardfront. Then used the stencils: Make Marks 2 & 5 to ink layers with complimentary colors. Added the Die cut Smile and a few sequins.

For the final card I placed die cut masks of Trendy Spring Blooms Dies - CUTplorations then inked  Make Marks 2 over the top creating ghost images along with the stencils. Simply Splendid Phrase Die - CUTplorations is cut three times and stacked with the top one inked in the same colors as the stencil.

*Inks used are from The Ton Stamps:
Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Lemon Drop, Beach Blonde, Peach Blossom, Rose Quartz, and Orchid Crush

*Just a kiss of Wink of Stella on the sentiment dies for sparkle:)

There is a Blog Hop where you can leave comments for chances to win Prizes!

* ONE (1) winner of a $15 gift code to the STAMPlorations store
* TWO (2) winners of their choice of 2 Helen G. Designs stencils

Commenting closes on May 8, with the winners announced on May 10 in the April winners post.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope your day is Blessed!
