If you missed the previous release of the SPECIAL DELIVERY ETCHED DIES FROM THE TIS THE SEASON COLLECTION, DANCIN’ GNOME ETCHED DIES FROM THE BE MERRY COLLECTION and the CHILL BEAR ETCHED DIES FROM THE BE MERRY COLLECTION, this die cut pack includes those images in a printed form that means you don’t have to die cut and assemble all the pieces.

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing three cards I have created using the GNOMIE CHRISTMAS DANCE PRINTED DIE CUTS FROM THE OH WHAT FUN COLLECTION

Here are the cards:

All of my cards today are created using three different holiday themed pattern paper that go well together. I had to look through my Card Sketches collection on my Pinterest account for layouts and ideas.

Special Delivery Card

My first card uses the Special Delivery holiday car with gifts tied to it.

Merry Hugs Delivering Cheer card is created using the Oh what fun printed die cut pack from spellbinders.

I picked a MFTWSC489 card sketch for this one.

I used a plaid pattern paper to cover my A2 card front. Then took two holiday striped pattern paper strips 1 inch wide matted with matching green card-stock and added the strips along the left side of the card front.

Then I matted a piece of embossed white panel with green card-stock for the center rectangle piece. The embossing folder I used is from Simon Says Stamp.

After that I added the car die cut, the sentiment that says “Delivery Cheer” and the sub-sentiment that says “Merry Hugs and Christmas Wishes” on the left hand top corner to complete the card.

Chill Bear Card

This card focuses the Chill Bear Printed Die cut from the Oh What Fun Dancing Gnome Die cut pack.

Beary Christmas Oh what fun card is created using the Spellbinders Oh What Fun printed die cut pack.

I chose a MFTWSC313 card sketch for this one. Again, I covered the card front with the striped pattern paper and added a piece of dark pattern paper cut as a banner on one side. Then I added a white rectangle matted with green card-stock as the card sketch suggested.

Then I added two fur trees that came in the pack on the white rectangle. After that I added the cute bear printed die cut.

For the sentiment there are these sentiment banners in the die cut pack. I used the one that said “Oh What Fun!!!” then a sub-sentiment that says “Have a Beary Merry Christmas” above the bear.

Here’s a finished look of this cute Chill Bear Card.

Dancing Gnome Card

The Dancing Gnome Die was so much fun. I don’t own the set but I own a Dancing Santa Die set which I loved so much. The legs of Santa and the Gnome dangle as a fun interactive feature.

Oh what fun Merry Christmas card created using the Spellbinders Oh what fun printed die cut pack.
For this last card I didn’t use any card sketch but just matted the leftover dark green pattern paper with green card-stock. This was only enough to cover the middle section of the card, so I had to add leftover stripe pattern paper strips on the top and bottom to fill the card front. Then I added an embossed oval in the center, made using the Argyle Socks embossing folder.

I added two trees and one dancing gnome printed die cut images on to the oval piece.

For the sentiment, I used a Merry Christmas printed die cut banner and Get Your Jingle On sub-sentiment on the right hand corner of the card.

With this my last card is done.

I hope my cards inspired you to easily create beautiful cards with the Dancing Gnome Printed Die Cut pack.

Gum-ball Machine Cards

These gum-ball machine cards feature the Spellbinders AMAZING PAPER GRACE DIE OF THE MONTH MEMBERSHIP for Sep 22.

Hello everyone!

Today, I am sharing three fun pop-up cards I have created each for completely different seasons or occasions. This die creates a vignette Gum-ball machine which has layers of depth. But of course you can fold it completely flat and mail it in a regular envelope. With each layer you can add elements of your choice. That’s when the idea of creating it for different seasons came from as I could add anything between those layers.

Gum-ball Machine card trio created using the APG DIE OF THE MONTH FOR SEP 22

Valentine’s Day Gum-ball Machine Card

My first card is for Valentine’s Day. Just by creating this Gum-ball machine is pinks and shimmery white combination already gives this card a valentine feel. I also added a cute little gnome I created with the Gnome Tree Die set. And the sentiment says “I Chews You” which is a fun one.

I only have 4 layers in this one. The back is a solid layer without a window cut out. The layer before it has pink and white gum-balls. There’s this pink gnome spreading his arms as if it’s going to hug you on the third layer and the foremost layer is just a cut out window where I added an acetate so it looks like glass.

Fall Gum-ball Machine Card

It was so easy to create this card in fall theme. I created the gum-ball machine with orange, gold and white combination. Then I stamped and colored the pumpkins with Stamp of the month for Sep 22 and then die cut them using the coordinating dies. I also cut out some leaves in browns and oranges using some of the spellbinders previous release dies.

This one has 5 layers. All the way to the back is a solid layer where I added some large pumpkins and leaves with liquid glue. Then in each layer I added other pumpkins with the help of some acetate strips so the pumpkins are floating between the windows.

The foremost layer is just the window with acetate so you can see through. The sentiment says “One In A Million”.

Winter Gum-ball Machine Card

My last but my most favorite card is this winter Gum-ball one. I Created this one in two shades of blues and holographic silver combination. For the elements inside, I stamped the smaller gnome from the Stamp of the month for Sep 22 and colored it in shades of blues. I cut out a bunch of snowflakes using an old spellbinders die set that was one of the large die of the month club.

This one also has 5 layers and each layers has the floating snowflakes added with acetate strip. Then there’s this cute gnome. The foremost layer is again just an acetate window.

The sentiment says “One In A Million”.

All three cards have very different vibe to them. I loved the cutesy look of the Valentine’s Day one. The warmth of the Fall one has such a festive feel and the cool shimmery Winter one has this sparkly snowfall going on it the background.

Which one is your favorite? Please let me know in the comments below.

Thankful Gnome Fall Card

Gnomes are cute and fun even on a Thankful Fall Card.

Hello everyone!

Today I am sharing a cute Gnome card I have created using the Spellbinders Stamp and Die of the month for Sep 22.

Step By Step Instructions to create the fall gnome card

  • Stamp the images with Memento Tuxedo black ink which is alcohol friendly ink and die cut the images using the coordinating dies.
  • Color the images in your choice of color combination with Copic Markers. I picked Blue-green, Orange and grey.
  • Emboss a panel of white card-stock. I used The Embossing folder of the month for Sep 22.
  • Die cut three circles in relatively matching colors. I took two patten papers in orange and blue-green from my stash.
  • Adhere the embossed piece with liquid glue directly of a A2 card-base. I wanted my card in a landscape style with the fold on top.
  • Add the circles in the lower portion of the embossed panel aligning the bottoms.
  • Arrange the gnome, pumpkins and the wheelbarrow with foam tape.
  • Embellish with some gems for extra interest.
  • Stamp the sentiment and cut it into a strip with the ends trimmed off at an angle. Adhere that with foam tape underneath the gnome.

Here are some more photos in different angle.

Here’s one that shows the closeup of the card where you can see the dimension.

Hope you find this inspiring. Thanks for stopping by.

Fall Leaves Thankful Card

Fall leaves have so many varieties and colors. It is so fun to create a fall thankful cards with a bunch of fall leaves in them. This one is special as the fall leaves are not just die cut but also embroidered.

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing a card with you that features the Small Die Of The Month for September ’22. This die set has a bunch of fall leaves and it’s shadow layer. Also some fall theme word dies that will create a fun fall sentiment when mixed and matched. What’s so special about this die is the fall leaves have holes in them where you can stitch through and create an embroidered leaves.

Now let’s get to the making of the card.

Card Base

I chose a mini slimline size for my card today. Mini slimline is 3 and a half inches wide and 6 and a half inches long. Mine is a horizontal top folding card base made out of Accent Opaque 110 lb card-stock from Amazon.

Decorating My Fall Background

I used another piece of the white card-stock to emboss using the Embossing Folder of the Month for September ’22 and adhered it on the card-front using liquid glue. The burlap piece you see here on the card is a burlap ribbon which was wide enough to place a die cut leafy border over it. The leafy border is from APG Die Of The Month for August ’22. My cards base with the background is done.

The Main Focus

The main focus of the card are these leaves created with the Small Die Of The Month Club for September ’22. I used Spellbinders Terra Cotta Color Essential Card-stock to cut the leaves. The stitching on the leaves is the most special part of this whole card-making process here. I used gold embroidery thread for the stitching. Then I added a gold die cut shadow layer behind them. I used mini glue dots to adhere the embroidered leaf on to the gold layer. I used two different leaves as you can see. The three leaves are then adhered on the border with liquid glue.

The Sentiment

For the sentiment a simple die cut Thankful cut out with one of the dies from the Large Die Of The Month for Sep ’22 was just perfect for this card. As there are a lot of layers and so much going on just a simple sentiment finishes the card.

I loved how my card turned out. Honestly I couldn’t stop staring at this card in awe after I was done creating it. What are your thoughts about it? I hope this inspires you to create a fun fall card with any leaf dies you have. Happy Crafting!!

Spellbinders Large Die Club Sep ’22

The large die club for the month of September from Spellbinders is such a fun one. It has this tractor truck and some fall elements like pumpkins, gourds, and corn. It is a subscription and you get more than the value of the die. And here’s a bonus (cue the drumroll). When you join the subscription club you get the shipping free!

Hello everyone!

Today I am sharing a bunch of cards I have created featuring the LARGE DIE OF THE MONTH FOR SEP ’22 and the EMBOSSING FOLDER OF THE MONTH FRO SEP ’22.

These dies are so fun that I couldn’t stop at just one card. I created not one, not two, not three, but 4 cards and I have tons of other ideas to use this die. If only time was something I had more of just to craft and enjoy.

Here are the cards:

I created three slimline and one A2 size cards. Let’s take a look at the first one.

Thankful Pumpkins Card

Large Die of the month septemnber 22

As always, I started by die cutting the pieces of the truck and the wagon behind it with Spellbinders card-stocks. The color palette I picked just screams fall.

The assembly is always the most tedious part but is almost like putting the puzzle pieces together; the amusement after the puzzle is completed is worth every effort.

For the background I used the EMBOSSING FOLDER OF THE MONTH FOR SEP ’22 and embossed a panel, which I later matted with gold card-stock to match the gold die cuts. I then tied a black and white twine towards the bottom of the panel. On a slimline card-base I adhered a fall colored pattern paper, followed by the embossed panel with a shiny gold border; then finally the die cut truck on foam tape.

Next come the flowers. I used the MINI BLOOMS AND SPRIGS ETCHED DIES FROM THE SLIMLINE COLLECTION to die cut some red and orange flowers with gold leaves for the finishing touches. I loved how this Thankful Pumpkin Truck card turned out. How about you?

Happy Fall Teal Truck Card

Card made with large die of the month for sep 22 and embossing folder for sep 22

This card is created similarly as the first one. The only difference here is that the background is made up of one whole embossed piece. Instead of the black and white twine, I used a black and white striped pattern paper to ground the truck die cut image.

The teal card-stock is also from Spellbinders. I looked at Pinterest for some ideas and saw this teal truck which I loved. There are pumpkin and a gourd on the truck.

For the decorations I used some blooms and leaves in cream and pearlescent card-stock. This finished my second card.

Truck Background Hello Fall Card

Fall card created with the large die of the month sep 22

After creating two cards, this idea came to my mind about creating one with just trucks as a background. I created three trucks with red, orange, and yellow card-stock.

For this one, I embossed the card-base itself, arranging them in rows but alternating their places. This adds the feeling of trucks passing in and out of the scene.

Here you can see the dimension this card has. Lastly, I added the die cut “Hello Fall” sentiment which is from SMALL DIE OF THE MONTH MEMBERSHIP.

I didn’t think this card needed any extra embellishments. What do you think about this one?

Corns In The Cob Thankful Card

Creativity has this snowball effect. One card inspires another one. When I saw this corn image in this die set, I wanted to create one card with just the corns.

This one is an A2 size card. I die cut and assembled three corns on the cob. These cobs have so much detail in them.

For the background, I took a piece of blue card-stock and used the embossing folder on it. Then I matted it with a black and white striped pattern paper showing a quarter inch of border around it. I added the panel on the card-base using foam tape.

Three corns in a row looks perfect for this card. Then I added a die-cut “Thankful” sentiment from the LARGE DIE OF THE MONTH FOR SEP ’22.

This does it for the last card. No extra embellishments needed. I just loved this simple look.

Hope this inspired you to create some fun projects with the Spellbinders dies. If you liked my projects please comment below. I love hearing your thoughts about my makes.

Here are some other Spellbinders cards I have created using their dies.
