Sharing a Few Cards

These are all on my IG account but I know some of you don't visit there. All products from Spellbinders.

FYI: I quit all my design work, paid and unpaid so I'm adjusting! These were all made with the Spellbinders Kits of the Month. 

MOOD WHEN DONE: It's February 1st, sunny and warm. I have no complaints

Cards With Friends! Playing With Michele Ferguson


Welcome! I was so excited when Michele reached out to me to play along with her. My "assignment" was to make a Halloween card. As I write this, I haven't see Michele's card yet, but you can find it here. I can't wait to see it, and I'm going out on a limb and predicting that she uses gray and that it will be a wow. 

I used the following to make my card:  Build-A-Wreath and Halloween Wreath Add-Ons dies by Spellbinders. I love this collection!

If you are interested, I did a blog post for Spellbinders using the Beautiful Wreaths (without making a wreath) collection here

MOOD WHEN DONE: Good! We've had a lot of house guests recently, which I love, and I've done a bit of traveling myself. So no complaints.

Thanks, Michele. This was fun!

Hero Arts 2023 Oh Joy Winter Catalog Blog Hop


It's the Hero Arts 2023 Oh Joy Winter Catalog hop and I'm stoked to be part of it. It's full of amazing products, with styles to suit everyone. There's info on hop participants, a giveaway, and the Hero Arts Stamp-a-Long at the end of this post. Oh, and if you are looking for my on Instagram, you can find me here.

Speaking of different styles, I'm sharing a modern graphic card and a traditional one. 

Holiday Collage Hero Transfers

Haven't used transfers (or rub-ons as we used to call them) in years so I wanted to try these out. They come in a pack of 5 and I used 1 of the 5 designs. Verdict: so fun!

  • Swiped a piece of white cardstock with 5 colors of Distress Oxide inks (Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple, Wild Honey, and Twisted Citron). Let it dry for a few minutes.
  • Peeled the backing off the Holiday Collage Transfer sheet and lay it on top of the inked panel.
  • Took the stick that comes with the transfers and rubbed until I thought it was adhered. Slowly lifted the transfer and if there were any spots not adhered, rubbed that spot.
  • Voila! It took just a minute or two but transferred the entire sheet.
  • Die cut with one of the rectangle dies from Nesting Infinity Rectangle Dies and popped up on a card.
  • Then I was stumped. Leave as is? Add some flowers in the corners? I had no clue. So I took a break and came back to it the next day. 
  • Die cut some circles with Nesting Circle Infinity Dies as shown and added a few black dots and decided I was happy. It's colorful, bold, and fun. 

Christmas Foliage Stamp, Die & Stencils

Love all things holly and this Christmas Foliage set is no exception. Kept it traditional. Loved having the stencils to color for me. They are the best addition to any set of products. Die cut and added a few of the foliage pieces and some sparkles. Quintessential Christmas!


You can find info on this event here. And, you can find the optional Holiday Stamp-a-Long bundle to purchase here.
