Spellbinders January Release - Yana's Blooms Collection

 Hello everyone!  I'm popping in today to share some cards that I have made with products from the Yana's Blooms collection by Yana Smakula for Spellbinders.  If you don't know who Yana Smakula is please check out her blog here.  She is an amazing designer and product designer!  (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.)

This first card was created with the Magnolia Glimmer Blooms plate and the Geo Foliage Glimmer plates from the collection.   I wanted to try something a little different and I'm super pleased with how this card turned out.   I foiled the beautiful magnolia on light yellow cardstock with Polished Brass foil using my Glimmer.  I die cut it with the matching die using my Platinum 6 and then used one light yellow Copic marker to add some color to the flowers.  A slightly darker yellow was used for the centers of the flowers.   The geometric shape fromthe Geo Foliage set was foiled on dark blue cardstock using Polished Brass, as well and then die cut with the matching die.  The sentiment is from an older Spellbinders Glimmer set called Thank You & Happy Birthday Glimmer plates.   I die cut additional light yellow cardstock with the largest die from the Essentials Rectangle die set , adhered that to a white cardstock base and then layered on all the die cut pieces.  I finished with lots of Fashion Gold embellishments.

I also really love how this card turned out.  While I was foiling the Magnolia on the yellow cardstock I also foiled it on the dark blue and loved how the Polished Brass looked on it, as well.  I foiled the Magnolia a second die and die cut both out.  I used Spellbinders Glacier cardstock for the main panel that I cut with the Essentials Rectangles setGlacier is my favorite light blue cardstock!  I arranged the two die cuts so I could determine where to place my sentiment.  The sentiment is from the new Being Around You Wreath by Sushma Hegde.   I will be sharing a card made with the beautiful wreath image from the stamp set in the near future!   I heat embossed the sentiment in gold after stamping it with VersaMark watermark ink.  The flowers were adhered with foam tape.  There were a couple of small pieces that I had to trim off so I added them as you see.  I finished off the card with some tiny gems from the Crystal Mix Color Essential gems from Spellbinders.  I realized that this card will work for the current challenge over at The Flower Challenge as this card is monochromatic.  So I'm posting it there.

Since I was foiling on colored cardstock I used up some scraps of the light yellow cardstock I used for the first card and foiled the foliage from the Geo Foliage Glimmer plates.   I die cut everything using my Platinum 6 and then determined an arrangement for them.  The sentiment is from the August 2021 Glimmer kit called Hex Floral and was foild in Polished Brass on Spellbinders Cosmic Sky cardstock.  I die cut white cardstock with the Essentials Rectangles die and arranged all my bits and pieces on the panel.  I then adhered the sentiment to the center of the cluster.  I finished with more Crystal Mix Color Essentials gems.
