Foiled So Grateful for You

Friday, June 17, 2022

Hello friends. My card today features some foiling with my Minc machine and some fun toner panels from Whimsy Stamps. If you don't have the Minc machine, you can use these panels with a regular laminator - you just need to make sure it heats up for at least 20 minutes.

I started by taking the fireworks pattern from the Toner Card Front Packs - Slimline Celebrations 1 and foiled it using some rainbow foil from DecoFoil. I then trimmed the panel down and matted it onto some black card stock. I then added this to a slimline white notecard.

I then took the Military die set and die cut the people die from some black card stock. I figured out where I wanted it and then I stamped my sentiment first which is from the Many Thanks set. I then added my die cut with foam tape for some dimension and that finishes off the card.



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

More Inspiration for Spellbinders 20th Birthday

Friday, June 17, 2022

Hi friends. I have more cards for Spellbinders 20th birthday big celebration. If you missed my other post with inspiration using products from this collection, click here.

For today, I am just using the Birthday Celebrations Embellishment Bundle. All my cards just use the patterned paper, ephemera, and one of them uses some of the fun rainbow stickers. I just love the large focal elements included that make creating several cards so super easy. I used lots of foam tape to help bring just a bit of extra dimension and interest to these cards.







Best wishes to all of you! Thanks for your visit and crafty hugs! ~ Alanna

Spellbinders June 2022 Stamp of the Month Inspiration

Thursday, June 16, 2022

Hi friends. I'm back today with a couple of cards featuring the Spellbinders June 2022 stamp of the month. You can purchase the stamp set only for $10 or add the coordinating die onto your purchase for $17.50 - click here.

For my cards, I started by taking this patterned paper from Altenew that mimics alcohol ink. I love to create my own backgrounds with alcohol ink but sometimes you just don't have the time or energy. :)

I then stamped directly onto the panels with 3 of the larger images from the stamp set. I added these panels to black A2 card bases and then stamped the sentiments, part of the June 2022 stamp of the month, onto pieces of the patterned papers that were left over. I popped these up with foam tape and these quick and easy cards are finished. 


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

Spellbinders June Glimmer Kit Inspiration

Thursday, June 16, 2022

Hi friends. My card today features the new Spellbinders June 2022 glimmer kit of the month. This kit has a fun paisley plate that I foiled 3 times to fit my A2 card panel from Onyx Color Essential Cardstock from Spellbinders. Hands down, this is my most favorite black card stock for foiling. It foils like a dream. 

The club kit also has some other smaller glimmer plates and a few coordinating dies. And of course you receive a full roll of foil to go with it. Price is $22.50.

I foiled the paisley plate three times onto some black card stock with silver foil. I then foiled the sentiment which is included the kit, along with a coordinating die to cut it out. I die cut a floral element from the Painted Blooms die set from some silver card stock. I added a strip of black card stock to my foiled panel and then added these elements, popping up the sentiment with foam tape. My card panel was also popped up onto the card base with foam tape.



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

Spellbinders Stitched Alphabet Collection

Wednesday, June 15, 2022

Hello friends. This is my second blog post for the day. Click here if you missed the first one. I have 4 cards in total to share using the new Stitched Alphabet die collection from Spellbinders. These dies are so much fun and a great size as you can see. Each letter is available for single purchase.

For my first two cards, I started by embossing the Loops embossing folder onto white card stock. I then trimmed the panels down and added them to pink A2 notecards. I then took the Stitched h die and Stitched i die and die cut them from pink and grey card stocks. 

I love that you can add stitching if you want to or don't want to. You can also use the dies without any of the stitching portion like I did on the card on the right. I finished off these cards with some silver pearls.


For my second set of cards, I used the same pink and grey card stocks that I used for the first cards and die cut the letters again. This time, I created my own background by taking some watercolor card stock and then adding Distress Oxide sprays and Distress Spray Stains (colors linked below). Pink pearls finish off these cards.


I hope you've been inspired. Thanks for stopping by and crafty hugs! ~ Alanna

Hey There Good Lookin'

Wednesday, June 15, 2022

Hey there good lookin'. :) I have a fun card for you today featuring the new Beach Huts, Beach Frogs and the coordinating dies for the Beach Frogs set.

I started by die cutting a piece of white card stock using the largest die from the Wonky Stitched Rectangles die set. I then  stamped one of the huts from the Beach Huts set. I cut a mask for it and did some simple ink blending for the sky and then added some brown Copic markers and a bit of dot detail for my sand. I removed the mask and then colored in the beach hut. I then stamped and colored the cute frog from the Beach Frogs set and cut it out using the coordinating dies.

I then stamped my sentiment and then popped up the cute frog with some foam tape. I stamped a couple of the birds included in the Beach Huts set and then popped up the entire panel with foam tape. 


I hope you are all doing well. Thanks for your visit and crafty hugs! ~ Alanna
