Spellbinders January Clubs Hop: In-Lay Die Cutting

 Hello Crafters! 

Welcome to the Spellbinders January Clubs Blog Hop! 
You should have arrived from the fabulous Jill Hilliard.

If you're just popping in head over to the Spellbinders Blog so you don't miss a thing! 
While you're thee make sure to leave a comment as Spellbinders is generously giving away $25 gift certificates to 3 lucky blog readers – selected from the comments on their blog. Giveaway closes on Sunday, January 16th, 11:59 pm MST. The winner will be announced in this blog hop post the following Wednesday. The winner is responsible for shipping costs, duties, and taxes.

Let's get into the card shall we?


When I first saw this die I knew I was going to do some inlay work. It's such a pretty die! But you know what makes everything prettier? 
Rainbows!! 


I colored each section with my Distress Inks and fit them back together like puzzle pieces. I think this would look great in monchromatic colors too! 
After I fit each piece back together I used a second white heart and popped it up on foam. I heat embossed the sentiment and cut it out using the Clear Stamp & Die Club Kit. 

The Clear Stamp & Die Club Kit has sold out. Spellbinders will try to bring this design back again at a later time (check our “Past Clubs” section). Be sure to sign up for our Clubs right away on the 1st of the month not to miss out on any future designs. I did link another die set with a similar banner below. 


I wanted to add a little something "extra" so I covered half the hearts in Stardust Stickles and the other half in Glossy Accents. I love all the shimmer and shine they bring! 

Thank you so much for visiting! I hope you found something to inspire you. 
Your next stop is the talented Jean Manis. I know you'll be blown away!

My Monthly Hero January 2022: Creating A Tri-Fold Card

Hello Crafters! 

Welcome to the My Monthly Hero Hop for January 2022!
I'm so excited to be joining as a special guest today. You should have arrived from the lovely Jennifer Kotas  If you'e just popping in please head over to the Hero Arts Blog so you don't miss any inspiration or any chances to win! 

Speaking of chances to win. Hero Arts is generously giving away a $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, January 16th at 11:59pm Pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.

Let's get onto this amazing kit shall we?!


This month's kit has such a romantic feel. As soon as the coverplate with that gorgeous keyhole I kept thinking about how it might be a peek into a whole other world. Soo.. I do I acheive that? 
Enter the tri-fold card...


Eeeep. I could not love this more. I was able to acheive this fun metal door handle look my combining som ink blending with the bronze metallic glimmer from Hero Arts. I added a bit of shadow to the intricate parts to really make them pop. 
I think this would be such a fun look for leather too! 


Here you can see all that beautiful bronze shimmer. 
All the heart eyes guys! 

Let's open it up shall we?!


Instead of going with a traditional green for my foilage I opted for pinks to give a more flowery spring look. I built my scene with more ink blending letting the fabulous stamps from the kit be the star of the show. 

A card has to have a place to write a note doesn't it? 


The third layer gives you a place to do exactly that. I stamped another sentiment from the set and accented it with more of those pretty butterflies. 

You can check out the entire process in the video below. 


I hope you found something to be inspired by! Thank you so much for stopping in. Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Meg Brooks!
