Santa Lane Floral Die Cut Shapes ~ Spellbinders

Good morning, friends!  It's mid-August and I can already feel a crispness in the air and a change in temperature.  Fall is around the corner and winter, not far behind.  As much as I am a "summer-girl", I do love autumn as well.  Winter however..... not so much.  One thing I do love about winter is seeing all the beautiful, new winter and Christmas products that are released each season.  The Spellbinders store is loaded with lots of new collections, including the Santa Lane Limited Edition Cardmaking Christmas KitThis HUGE kit includes over 300 Pieces and will create over 25 Holiday cards with TONS of leftover embellishments and materials to spare.

For my first card, I started by stenciling the grid pattern in the background, using Antique Linen and Abandoned Coral DOX inks.  I then splattered some gold flecks over the background and set it aside to dry.  The beautiful poinsettias are part of the Santa Lane Floral Die Cut Shapes.  They look so real, and I love the watercolor style.

I layered the poinsettias over foliage from Glitter Die Cut Foliage, from Celebrate the Season collection, and added a sentiment is from the Santa Lane Sticker Pack.

I added some gold stickles to the centers of each flower and finished the card of with gold sequins.  

For my second card, I used the Starburst Glimmer Hot Foil Plate to create the background, using Matte Silver Hot Foil Roll

I added a hand trimmed banner using printed paper and added this beautiful winter bouquet die from the Santa Lane Floral Die Cut Shapes.  I added some stickles to the edge of some of the petals to add dimension and interest.

The sentiment is from Christmas Puffy Sentiment Stickers, while the red sequins finished the card. 

That's it for my offerings for you today.  I'm so glad you stopped in for a visit.  You can find all the newly released collections HERE and take a peek and what's COMING SOON.  As a bonus, Spellbinders is giving $20 off your next $100 purchase.

I'm not ready for winter either, Birgit but I'll take pretty wintry cards like yours any time of year! We had an unusually chilly August day today. Hope summer doesn't end too quickly!
