suddenly spring

More like suddenly mid-April! Wasn’t it just January? No. Oh, ok… Well, I’m glad it’s spring! The flowers are blooming and the days are warming. But, it’s always craft season, so let’s see what kinds of bundles we have with this release!

whimsical garden & a mirrror

All of this month’s projects feature different washi tapes in combination with the new dies. This first one features Circular Elements and Whimsical Garden dies. I chose to back the Circular Element with gold mirror cardstock. When you look at it head on, you can see your reflection! It really plays off the “Stay Strong” sentiment from Sentiment Strips!

woodland reflections

I created this project by bordering the new Reflections die on both sides with the same color cardstock to create a full card-front element. It reminds me of looking into a stand of trees.

The 3D Banner die set is a little tricky, but worth it to create something this beautiful, this easily! The set comes with the banner all stretched out and ready to fold, and the background piece to connect it to. The trick is knowing which way it folds and which direction to stamp to make sure it all lines up!

  3. Pretty cards! I really love the style of the 3D banner die! The Circular Elements dies are very interesting and add a nice design and texture to a card, and the Whimsical Garden flower is beautiful! Awesome new stand-alone dies!

  4. I love these cards! I didn’t think I needed the reflection die, but I absolutely love what you’ve done with the purple card and that die! Thank you for sharing.

  5. Each card is unique, the gold mirror cardstock adds perfect touch on first card, totally agree looks like trees in second card and love it. Rich colors too. The third is pretty too with black and white floral background and purple 3D banner. Great cards!

  6. Cool, creative uses for this collection! I love the way you inset the banner and that it still stands above the surface. Seems like a kind of miracle! 🙂

  7. I am in love with the gold mirror paper used as an outline in your whimsy card! And the banner die is just gorgeous. I love how it pops up!
