Spellbinders January Club Kit Inspiration

Wednesday, January 25, 2023

Hello friends. I'm back today with another card made featuring the January 2023 stamp of the month from Spellbinders. If you missed my first post with a set of 4 cards made using this set, click here.

For my card today, I once again showed how you can have a pretty floral card without having to actually color the florals in. 

To get started, I took the large image from the January 2023 stamp of the month and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder onto black card stock. I then took the coordinating die set, which you can also purchase together with the set here and die cut the floral out. 

I took a piece of white card stock and stamped one of the sentiments from the set onto it in the lower right corner. I then took my Scoring Board and made score lines every 1/8th of an inch. I love the texture this gives and it's so quick and easy to do. I added this panel to a black A2 notecard and then added  my heat embossed floral cluster on top and that finishes off this card.


I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for your visit and crafty hugs! ~ Alanna

Happy 8th Birthday

Tuesday, January 24, 2023

Hi friends and welcome back! I have a fun card to share with you today featuring the newer Love and Unicorns stamp set from Whimsy Stamps. To get started, I took the shooting star image from the set and stamped it repeatedly on the background of some red card stock. I trimmed that panel down and added it a white A2 sized notecard.

I then stamped, colored, and fussy cut the cute unicorn image from the Love and Unicorns set. I popped it up with foam tape onto my background and then die cut the balloon string and number 8 balloon which are both from the Make a Wish die set. This card was made with my niece in mind who will be turning 8 next month. I love that I can customize the card with the number balloons. 

I finished off the card by adding my stamped birthday sentiment which is from the Simple Sentiment Strips set. 


I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for your visit and crafty hugs! ~ Alanna

For my projects today, I made a set of 4 cards using the January stamp of the month. It's a gorgeous large floral set that would look amazing colored. However, I wanted to showcase how it could still look amazing without any coloring. 


I stamped it directly onto white card stock that was trimmed down to leave a nice border on an A2 card base with black ink. I added additional pieces of white card stock behind my stamped panel to add dimension. I then stamped and die cut one of the sentiments from the January stamp of the month using the coordinating dies.

Whimsy Stamps New Release & 2 Cards

Monday, January 16, 2023

Hello friends. Wow - I didn't mean to be gone so long from my blog. I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and holiday season. I'm back now and have lots to share over the next few weeks. 

I have two cards to share with you today and they both use the new Give a Sip
stamp set from the latest release at Whimsy Stamps. It has some super cute images and punny sentiments in it.

For my first card, I started by taking the Criss Cross Gingham Background cling stamp and I stamped a piece of white card stock with red ink. I trimmed this down and added it to a piece of black card stock leaving a thin border. I then attached this to my red A2 notecard.

I then took the Selfie die set and die cut the phone image from both white and this Black Glitter foam. I stamped one of the images from the Give a Sip set onto the inner portion and colored it in with my Copic markers. I then added the frame around it. I then took one of the sentiments from the set and stamped it directly over top of my background stamping. I finished off the card by adding in two hearts, one right below the sentiment and the other one on the coffee cup sleeve.


For my second card, I took the Slimline Scallop die and die cut it from some specialty paper from Tonic Studios. I then stamped one of the sentiments in both the upper and lower oval portions. I stamped the same image I used on my first card from the Give a Sip set. I colored it, and fussy cut it out. I added foam tape behind it and then added it to my card. I finished off the card by adding in several red enamel hearts from my stash.



I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for your visit and crafty hugs! ~ Alanna

Quick and Easy Coloring on a Christmas Card

Wednesday, December 21, 2022

Hi friends and welcome back. I have a fun Christmas card to share with you today where I went super simple on the coloring and just added touches of red and green to these cute images. All products are from Whimsy Stamps.

I first started by die cutting the Postage Window A2 die from white card stock and then on the inner portions, I stamped several of the images from the Holiday Icons stamp set. 

I then die cut the Postage Window A2 die 3 more times, twice from white card stock and once from red card stock. I discarded the inner portions this time and added one of the frames to my A2 card base and then I adhered the stamped portions inside the frame. I added the other 2 frames for a dimensional look.

 I finished off the card by adding a stamped sentiment which is from the Sentiment Assortment - Merry Christmas stamp set which was then die cut with a circle die from the Pierced & Stitched Circles die set.


I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for your visit and crafty hugs! ~ Alanna

Elegant Ornaments

Tuesday, December 20, 2022

Hi friends. My card today is featuring the newer Elegant Ornaments 2 stamp set. I started by die cutting a piece of patterned paper from the Blurry Flurries paper collection with the largest die from the Wonky Stitched Rectangles die set.

I heat embossed 3 of the ornaments from the Elegant Ornaments 2 set with silver embossing powder directly onto the patterned paper. I adhered this to a piece of silver mirror card stock which I then added to a light blue A2 notecard.


I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for your visit and crafty hugs! ~ Alanna

Spellbinders Floral Reflections Collection - 2 Cards

Thursday, December 15, 2022

Hello friends and welcome back! I have a pair of cards to share with you today using the Floral Reflections collection from Spellbinders.

For the card on the left, I started by hot foiling the Glimmer Essential Solid Floral Reflection glimmer plate onto a piece of white card stock. I then added some die cut florals from the Sealed Leaf Sprigs die set. I added a foiled sentiment which is from the Be Bold Glimmer Sentiments set and then added some pearls. All of this was added to an aqua A2 notecard.

For the card on the right, I started by embossing a piece of aqua card stock using the Flower Frenzy 3D embossing folder.  I adhered it to a light grey A2 notecard with some thin foam tape.

I then took the largest die from the Essential Floral Reflections die set and die cut it from some light grey card stock. I then added die cut florals from the coordinating Floral Reflections die set. I added this to my card and then added a foiled sentiment which is from the Be Bold Glimmer Sentiments set. I then added some small pearls to the centers of the florals and this card is complete.


I hope you've been inspired today. Thanks for your visit and crafty hugs! ~ Alanna
