"Hey there Pumpkin" sweet seasonal card


Hello Crafty Friends!

Last week I shared a sweet fall card using product from Spellbinders' the Seasonal Label Motifs Collection.  This week's card is also fall inspired.  You see, I am fortunate to have a craft room with a desk just underneath a large window.  The window looks out on the beautiful trees surrounding our property.  Today's project was inspired by that gorgeous fall view. 😊  

The Fall Label Motifs (S5-519) was the primary set used.  It is full of lovely dies for a fall project:

The sweet sentiment is from the Seasonal Motif Sentiments clear stamp set, STP-150.  

The stamp set coordinates with all of the dies in the entire Seasonal Labels Motifs collection.


Create a tent fold 4.25 x 5.5 base using dark blue card stock.  Mat mount copper metallic and then white card stock on the base.  Die cut the outer window die in dark blue and the inner die in white.  Appy Distress Ink to the outside of the white die cut.  Mount to the card base using foam tape.

Die cut the leaves, pumpkin, and sprigs using colored card stock.  Apply Distress Ink along edges.  Die cut a sprig and the acorn cap using copper card stock.  Assemble to the card front as shown.

Use blue ink to stamp "Hey there pumpkin" on white card stock.  Cut to size and mount onto orange card stock.  Apply Distress Ink to the edges.  Mount to card front.

Create a wee bow and hot glue to the top of the top of the window.  Add a coordinating button.
It is so cute!  What a happy fall card for someone special on your card giving list.

Product used:
Spellbinders Fall Labels Motif die set and Seasonal Motifs clear stamp set
Card stock in various colors and copper metallic
Distress Ink- Vintage Photo
Blue archival ink
Adhesives (liquid glue, double sided tape, foam tape, hot glue)

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed the card!
Have a happy, crafty day.

Fall "Hello" from Spellbinders Seasonal Motif Collection


Hello Crafty Friends!

I love this time of year: trees are painting the world in the glorious colors of fall, the nature walks are calm and cool, and pumpkins are taking their share of the fall stage.  Fall is a perfect card theme to send a sweet hello to someone special.  Fall was in my heart and my inspiration for my project.

The Seasonal Label Motifs Collection was used to create the Hello card.  The Fall Label Motifs (S5-519) was the primary set used.  It is full of sweet dies for a fall project:

Scrap pieces of card stock were used extensively (great to use scraps!).  The pumpkin used copper card stock.  The other die cuts had Distress Ink (Vintage Photo) applied to the edges.

The banner is from the Let It Snowman Die Set (S5-533).  "Hello" from the Seasonal Motif Sentiments clear stamp set was stamped in brown and attached to the pumpkin.  
It is such a sweet gathering of fall beauties!

The window was die cut from white paper and light gold glitter stock.  It was all mounted on a textured piece of ivory card stock, white card stock, and a Kraft top fold card base.

These dies and stamps are available from Spellbinders right now! Click here: The Seasonal Label Motifs Collection.

Introducing the 3D Vignette Collection!!


Hello Crafty Friends!

You know when you have exciting news that you cannot tell anyone right away but you cannot wait to share?  Well, the newly released Spellbinders 3D Vignette Collection was exciting news I could not wait to share!   It is another fabulous vintage style die set collection designed by Amazing Paper Grace and is available now at Spellbinders.  (Yay!)  This is not a Die of the Month Collection so you can order it without signing up for the Die of the Month Club.

There are four sets in this collection: a fun retro television, a sweet doghouse, an uplifting hot air balloon, and a twin lens camera.  You can check out the collection here:  The 3D Vignette Collection.

Dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace were used in today's creations.

For my projects I used the Twin Lens Camera die set:
The thought put into the design of the camera front dies details are phenomenal!  It is quite easy to put together, too.  If you require assembly instructions, hop on over to the Spellbinders store and select the die set from the collection (
3D Vignette Collection).  Scroll to the bottom of the product description and you will see the link to the assembly instructions pdf.

I created the 3D project first and could not help but smile when it was complete.  It is a camera that I wish to own...but unlike other cameras this one can be folded flat and mailed in a standard envelope.  😊

Isn't it the cutest camera?  The dies were used with rose gold metallic, rose gold glitter, ivory, white, and black card stock.  Scrap script paper was used for the wee flower.  I used liquid adhesive and foam tape to assemble the pieces.

Did you notice the Oh Snap tabbed paper peeking out from the right side?  That's right...there are tabbed cards in the set that are tucked into the side of the camera.  You can use the inserts to adhere photos or journal.  (I plan on cutting more of the inserts to use in my journals.)
This project would be a great memory piece/gift for someone special.  Just imagine it in pastel colors with baby photos- a great gift for a grandparent.  

My next project is a coordinating card.  I thought it would be a fun birthday card and look at how sweet it turned out!
The black tent fold card base had pink card stock and ivory embossed (Holly Flourish, SES-046) card stock layered.  Next, I created the camera front using cute pink/ivory gingham paper, ivory card stock, and rose gold card stock.  Check out the camera front details.  You can really see the details in the ivory die cut pieces and the screw heads:
I used foam tape to add some height to both lens and to the entire camera.  
The Oh Snap was used again because the card inside will state: " is your birthday and you look fabulous!"  
Instead of the flower I used the butterfly from the Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters die set.  
Both projects are bright and cheery! I think the recipients will be as happy to receive them as I was making them.

Amazing Paper Grace October Die of the Month!

Hello Crafty Friends!

Have you seen the new Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month?  Two words: Gor-geous!  It is called Poinsettia Surprise Envelope and full of the loveliest dies that can be used to create a beautiful 3D envelope or stunning holiday card.  

The poinsettia dies and graceful flourish are striking in red and gold (my favorite holiday color combo).  I also ran the dies through in other colors- pink, pastel green, and gold were another exquisite color combo, as was gold and white.  It was difficult to choose what I wanted to show off first!  😊  After the tough decision I chose the traditional red and gold...but stay tuned as I did create another project using the pink and pastel dies!

Today's projects were created with the dies supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.

There are 22 cutting dies included in the 3D Poinsettia Surprise Envelope.

I started with the 3D envelope.  This little delight will be happily displayed on my desk at work spreading holiday cheer to all that walks by.

The base and holly swirls were made from Kraft card stock and the background in white card stock.  The wee red holly were die cut in red and adhered.  The poinsettia were die cut from red card stock and red metallic card stock.  After layering the dies, I added Stickles to the poinsettia centers.

Some of the poinsettias were adhered using glue and others using foam tape.

The finishing touch was a triple white bow and red/white gem.

Next on the crafty list was a coordinating card.

A top fold 4.25 x 5.5 card base was created using red card stock.  Embossed white card stock was mat mounted onto gold and then mounted to the card base.  

The swirl dies were triple die cut and mounted using glue in the locations shown.  Three poinsettia were mounted using foam tape and glue.  A Merry Christmas banner was assembled using foam tape (one small piece in the center) and glue on each end.  A gold triple bow was assembled with a cute button in the center.  Stickles were added to the poinsettia centers.

I really like how the projects turned out!  I will make more in different colors and share.

Amazing Paper Grace October 2022 Die of the Month – 3D Poinsettia Surprise Envelope.
Card stock: red, red metallic, gold, white, kraft, and white
Ribbon- white and gold
Adhesives- liquid, double sided tape and foam tape
