Spellbinders Floral Reflections Collection

Hello. Today I have two cards featuring products from the Spellbinders Floral Reflections Collection. 

For my first card, I used both off white and pink pearlescent paper, embossed in the Tile Reflection Embossing Folder. I used the Sealed Wildflowers Dies, cut out using a variety of colored and patterned papers, and added some hearts from the Essential Hearts Set that were also embossed in the File Reflection Embossing Folder.. I used the beautiful Aura Hot foil on the Glimmer Essential Solid Heart hot foil plate behind the floral centerpiece.. 

For my second card I used purple paper to emboss in the Tile Reflection Embossing Folder.
 I used the Sealed Wildflowers Dies, cut out in a variety of colored and patterned papers. I used Rose Gold Glimmer Hot Foil for the Glimmer Essential Solid Heart. I also used the Sweet Happy Birthday Wax Seal Stamp on this card. I used a black A2 Card Base. 

Here is a photo of the Sealed Wildflowers Dies (before and after I cut them out).

For my first card, I heat embossed the new Believe Stamp (SD1195) with silver embossing powder. I die cut it with a stitched rectangle die. I ink blended the edges of the rectangle with Tranquil (light blue) ink from Catherine Pooler. For my night sky I used a piece of navy blue card stock and splattered it with Frost White Fantastix Ink by Tsukineko. I die cut this with a stitched rectangle die. I used a large silver foil circle to represent the moon in the upper right hand corner.  I used silver foil cardstock cut with a stitched rectangle die for a mat layer. I adhered everything to an A2 card base. 
For my second card, I embossed the Embellished Merry Christmas stamp (SD1198) with dark green embossing powder, then die cut that with a stitched rectangle die. I then used the Quirky Little Trees Stencil  from A Colorful Life Designs with Later Gator (green) Lunar Paste on white cardstock. I used green foil cardstock as a mat layer and adhered to an A2 card base. I then added some foiled ephemera stickers from my stash (a Christmas Tree, a red pickup truck and holly leaves).

Spellbinders New Glimmer of the Month and Embossing Folder of the Month

Hi - It's new release day at Spellbinders and I created this card with the Spellbinders Embossing Folder of the month and Glimmer of the Month Kit https://shrsl.com/3on6s  The Glimmer Kit features a full roll of  Copper Foil. I also used the new Scattered Fall embossing folder of the month: https://shrsl.com/3on6k

The embossing folder is beautiful! It features acorns, leaves and flowers. 
The hot foil dies features beautiful leaves that form a half a frame. There is a die that cuts the hot foil leaves frame. The sentiment says "I am thankful for all you do." There is also a mini leaf and mini flower hot foil die and cutting dies for each. The set also contains a branch with berries cutting die.   
The copper hot foil looks great! 

For my card I embossed cream colored paper in the Embossing Folder for my mat layer. I embossed white paper in the folder also.  I die cut the white embossed paper with the Candlewick Rectangles Etched Dies from Spellbinders: https://shrsl.com/3on7e   I added a mat behind that using rose gold foil card stock. 

To finish my card I used rose gold foil cardstock as a mat layer behind the sentiment. I cut both the sentiment and the rose gold foil cardstock using a square die and I titled the die to make a diamond shape. 

 Thank  you for visiting my blog!
