♥ Simon Says...Anything Goes! ♥

Hello. Today we are starting a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. It's ANYTHING GOES

The Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Memory Box. For my card, I am using the Tree Blossom Stitched Circle Frame Die. I die cut it several times using different papers and then paper pieced it together.

The bunny is an older Poppy Stamps Die and the papers are from the Miss Betty 6.5 x 6.5 Paper Pad by KaiserCraft. I also used some May Arts Natural Twine and pearls.

And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

Hope you have a fabulous day!

♥ A Hexagon Easter ~ KaiserCraft Style! ♥

Hi there! I'm stopping in with a simple yet sweet Easter Card. When I saw the KaiserCraft February Blog Challenge, Hexagons, I knew I had to make something using their new Miss Betty Paper Pad.  Love these gorgeous papers!! But then again, I love all of KaiserCraft's papers!

I just simple hand cut some hexagons out of the papers and randomly adhered them to my card front. I then added a sweet bunny die cut from the wood paper from the pack, added some pearls and a sweet sentiment from the Easter Greetings Clear Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp.

You still have until Wednesday to join in on KaiserCraft's February Hexagon Challenge!

♥ 3D Grand Anniversary Book/Card ♥

Hello there. Today I want to share with you a super sweet Book/Card that I made for my husband for our 15th Wedding Anniversary. I used the new Grand Cabinet 3D Card Etched Dies by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders from the New and Fabulous 3D Vignettes Collection.

I made the base of the card with the Grand Cabinet Dies but I cut off the tabs on the right sides of the die cuts since it was to be used as a book. Becca has a video HERE which shows how easy it is to put it together.

On the front of the book I also added the Filigree Veil Etched Dies as well as the 1 and 5 from the Filigree Numbers Set.

Here I used the Filigree Veil Dies to make a "pocket" that I will put a gift card in or something from our special day 15 years ago. I haven't decided yet! :) But I like the idea of having a pocket to put something in. ;)

Another page that you can add a pic to or write something special!

Here I added one of my favorite pics from our wedding day. I also used some of the Happily Ever After Etched Dies on this page.

On the last page, I left it blank so I can write a special something to my amazing husband. :) Here's a little something you may or may not know about me! My husband and I eloped to our favorite town in Vermont. Just him and I. We then surprised our family and renewed our vows in front of them all in church right before our first son's Baptism, 3 years later. Both set of vows were special to me but I have to say that the 2nd ones were my favorite since our first born and family was there. :) 

This was so fun and easy to make! I hope you give it a try too!

You can see all of Becca's AMAZING Dies HERE! Have fun shopping! :)

Hope you have an AMAZING Day!

♥ Bundle of Joy ♥

Hello there! Stopping in today with a super sweet Z-Fold card I made with the new Bundle of Joy Etched Dies by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders. I also used the Ornamental Arch Etched Dies. They are both from the new 3D Vignettes Collection.

Love playing around with these Dies! They are all interchangeable so it makes working with them so fun and easy! Here is the card when it's folded.

That stork is just too sweet! I added a tiny black pearl for his eye. I love all of the little elements like the rattle, baby feet and bag. So sweet! Love that Bundle of Joy Die too!!

I hope you have gotten to see this new Collection by Becca! It is AMAZING!! You can see them all HERE!

Have a great rest of your week!

♥ This post will stay up top until Feb. 11th. Scroll down for new posts! ♥

Welcome friends, today we are introducing a new die collection by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders called 3D Vignettes.

What they are:

3D Vignettes is a series of theme dies that can be inserted into what is cut with a Grand Base die to create 3D upright cards that fold down flat to go into an envelope – a collapsible tunnel card!  You can see it in action in the 1.5 minute video ——> HERE.  Where these Vignettes are unique, is the ability to die cut or not die cut each and every layer for an ethereal see through dimensional creation.  Collection elements were designed to cut out whole or to be cut out inlaid for inclusion in a Grand Base.  The collection centers around three themes – baby, love and birthday.  Today we show you traditional uses but with a little dreaming, only the sky is the limit.

How they are used:

The dies and elements can be used as standalones or in the Grand Base there is a good degree of mix and matchability across the entire collection.  The other talented ladies made three cards each to show you how easy it is to isolate different sets or combine them all into one.

This Filigree Numbers Set is beautiful! The numbers are Large and so fun to work with. And since you get both a Shadow Set and a Filigree Set, it's like getting 2 sets of dies in 1! They are perfect for Birthday, Anniversary and Holiday cards. They would also be great to make Birthday invites and party favors and decor! Think 1st Birthday...50th Birthday...25th Anniversary and so on! Above, you can see how I used both the shadow and filigree dies to make the number 40. I then went and die cut another set of numbers in a patterned paper using the shadow die and placed that behind the filigree numbers. There are so many different possibilities, as I will show you below. :)


On this next card, I used both the negative space and Shadow die. The set also comes with a Tab die as well as the RD/ST/TH/ND dies.

And here I made a shabby Valentine Countdown/Treat Calendar that shows all of the different ways to use these gorgeous number dies! (click on pics for a closer view!) I filled the little burlap bags with candies, for my kids to open each day.

These dies are available on February 13, 2018 - get email notification the moment they are loaded by clicking on the die set and putting your email address and clicking on Notify Me -------HERE.
