Welcome friends! Have you checked out the club kits this month from Spellbinders? They have designed some amazing products for you!
Let’s get started!
First up is the Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month. I love using my glimmer hot foil system. It is in my Top 10 of best investments in crafting.
The green is kind of hard to see on camera, as with all foils, but it looks amazing in person!
I added tiny little flowers in a couple shades of pink and that really helped pull this wreath together. I’ll admit, I almost didn’t use the green wreath. I’m not used to colored foil but once I added the flowers, I felt much happier with the design.
Next is the Large Die of the Month.
So let me ask you this…. Do you stitch on cards? I know some people absolutely love it because it keeps their hands busy and sometimes can help with anxiety.
Here’s a fun little fact for you about me: I used to do counted cross-stitch. This must have been in my 20’s I think, so it’s been a while. I did all kinds of cross-stitch and counted cross-stitch. I made some pictures and gave them to family members.
Once I hit paper crafting, I didn’t pick up the needle much. Then I see people stitching on cards!
The Large Die of the Month has this gorgeous die in it that can used on its own but also used for stitching and this design was begging to be stitched. I normally have a hard time sitting still and stitching on cards. When I’m making cards, I’m all over the place but I kind of forced myself to sit down and just stitch. Boy I’m glad I did!
I finished it off with a sentiment from Mini Christmas Sentiment Strips Hot Foil Plate.
Last but not least is the Small Die of the Month.
I love this sketched rose look and kept it all fairly simple but adding a little bit of worn lipstick distress oxide ink to the centers.
This Hello sentiment comes from the Layered Mix & Match Sentiments which is a past Small Die of the Month. It has a lot of great essential word dies and shadow layers.
Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!
I’m off to make some marshmallow popcorn since the kids are coming home early from school in anticipation of a huge snow headed our way.
