Spellbinders December Release

 Hello!  Hope your week has been going well.  We got snow on Sunday, December 26th and it hasn't left, yet!    It put a bit of a damper on things as it makes it hard to go places, but that just means I can stay inside and craft, right?!   And that is what I have been doing... crafting away with new products from the Spellbinders December release!  I have three cards to share and the first one is a Valentine.  I used my Spellbinders Platinum 6 for all the die cutting.  (Compensated affiliate links used where possible.  Using my links allows me to earn a small commission at no cost to you.  Thank you for your support.)  Also Spellbinders is having another sale!  Just click on the banner at the end of my post to be taken to the sale.

There is a new addition to the Spellbinders Open House line of products and this one is called Open House Valentines.  Instead of creating a front door using dies from the set I decided to create a heart shape topiary.  I used the urn dies from the Open House Pumpkin Topiary set, as well.  The sentiment was one I foiled with my Glimmer using pink foil.  I just love the Fluted Rectangle dies and use those for my card as well.   I just love the sweet little heart banner that you can create with this set, as well.  

These next two cards were created with new products from the Amazing Paper Grace Garden Shutters collection.  This collection of dies was designed to create interactive cards.  I'm not really good at creating interactive cards so I decided to give these new dies a try.  I didn't create the interactive element on either of these cards, but I plan to spend some time learning how to assemble the interactive elements.   This card uses the Daisy Delight Garden Shutters A2 Card Base dies.  I used the daisy dies, as well as the word dies and the little ornament panel from the set along with Spellbinders Barely Peach, Beeswax, Rainforest and Silver Fox cardstocks.  And as you can see I used the Fluted rectangles, again... yep I really like them!

My final card uses the Primrose Heart Facade dies from the Garden Shutters collection.  I die cut the flowers from Spellbinders Purple Mist cardstock and then added a little bit of Wilted Violet distress oxide ink to the centers of the flowers.  I die cut the leaves from Rainforest and added some Rustic Wilderness distress oxide to the leaves.  I die cut the words from the Purple Mist, scrap cardstock and then adhered them together.   I die cut the Fluted Oval, added some of the Wilted Violet to one side of the oval.  I die cut white cardstock with the Essentials Rectangle and adhered it to a light gray cardstock base.  I then added the oval, the words and the flowers.  I finished with white gems from the Spellbinders Crystal Mix essentials gem pack

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!

What a bevvie of beauties! Wow, these are all so pretty.
Hope you stay safe in the snow, I know your side of the state doesn't deal with it often or well. Our first snow was Dec. 16th, which came and left but we've received a couple more snows, and it still lays on the ground (I'm ecstatic)!

All so beautiful, Rosemary! I do hope one day to get the Fluted dies--love the look! Your Valentine is fabulous & love the soft BD look of the BD card with those beautiful flowers! Happy New Year! Our snow is mostly gone--just had hail!
