Spellbinders: Truckin’ Through The Seasons & So Many Sentiments Dies

0

Hello crafty friends!

Today I am sharing with you a few cards using Spellbinders NEW So Many Sentiments dies and the popular Trucking’ Through the Seasons Large Die of the Month set. The Trucking’ Through The Seasons die first debuted in October 2018 as part of the Spellbinders Large Die of the Month Club.

By popular request, Spellbinders has re-released the set along with their release of the new So Many Sentiments die set. If you missed out last October, here is your chance to pick up both sets of dies while supplies last.

The So Many Sentiments die set is a sixteen piece set of different greetings that can be placed onto the tailgate of the truck. Together, these two die sets provide an endless variety of all occasion cards you can create.

For my cards today, I filled each of the trucks with the coordinating gift box dies from the Truck set. Then used the For You, Mr & Mrs, and I love you sentiment dies from the So Many Sentiment sets.

The body of the truck for the wedding card was die cut from white shimmer cardstock and the bumper and mirrors were cut from silver mirrored cardstock I purchased from my local scrapbook store.

The Best Wishes layered sentiment comes from the Queen & Co Sentiment Stackers 2 die set which I cut with black and white cardstock from Michaels. I added some red heart die cuts from my stash along with a few gemstone embellishments. The background was embossed with the Fun Stampers Journey Beach Towel embossing folder.

The love card was die cut from pink, red and white cardstock from my stash. The bumper and mirrors were cut from matte gold cardstock from my local scrapbook store.

The background was embossed with the Tailored Expressions Swiss Heart embossing folder. The sentiment comes from the MFT stamp set Sweet Nothings which was heat embossed with Hero Arts fine detailed white embossing powder and die cut with the MFT Fishtail Flag dienamics.

My last card is masculine themed, where I used cardstock from Michaels and die cut the background with my Queen & Co Foundations 2 diagonal dies. I placed the truck on top of a piece of vellum cardstock that was die cut with the large circle die from the Queen &Co Foundations 1 die set.

I think all of these cards turned out so cute, and I hope you do to! Thanks for stopping by, until next time.

Doodlebug: Simply Spring Collection

0

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you a few cards I recently made using the 2019 Doodlebug Simply Spring collection. Doodlebug collections are great for quick and easy cards and scrapbook pages. What I love most about Doodlebug is that everything in the collection coordinates.

For today’s cards, I used papers from the 6×6 patterned paper pad and several doodle pop cardstock stickers to create four clean and simple cards. The sentiments on the cards came from my Clearly Besotted Fancy Sayings stamp set and my Big Birthday Wishes stamp set from MFT.

A little ink blending with my Distress Oxide inks in Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron were used on the background cardstock pieces of the doodle pop stickers.

Here is my card share video if your interested.

I had so much fun creating these cards. Thanks for joining me today, until next time.
