Spellbinders Nordic Blooms

by | Jun 21, 2018 | Birthday, Blog, Ink Blending, Quick & Simple, Spellbinders

We love the lazy days of summer around here. As much as I love to be in my craft room, sometimes the sunshine beckons and I just want to whip out a super fast and fun card to fulfill my creative side. Today’s card is just that! Spellbinders makes the most perfect dies for quick and simple projects. Let me introduce you to Nordic Blooms by Lene Lok. Spellbinders Shapeabilities Nordic Blooms Etched Dies include 6 blooms styles, 3 stem combos and 2 accents. Mix and match for fresh and stylish designs.

Ink blend on a scrap of Smooth Bristol paper with Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, and Peacock Feathers. Die cut with Nordic Blooms. Die cut 2 extra blooms and stems in white for the center set. Stack and adhere center die cut set together using Xyron Create-A-Sticker. Adhere blended blooms to either side aligning at bottom of each image on a 4″ x 5 1/4″ white cardstock panel. Remove any exposed adhesive with Adhesive Eraser.

White heat emboss sentiment on black cardstock and pop in place with dimensional adhesive. Wrap Sulky Gold Holoshimmer thread around panel several times adhering to adhesive tape on back. Pop completed panel onto folded card base.

Thank you for spending a few minutes with me today. It will be relatively quiet here from now through mid-August with only a few posts. My big girls are home from college and the littles are out of elementary for the summer. The islands are calling and we have a fun vacation planned. I am making our family my priority this summer, as it may be the last we are all together for an extended time under one roof. I will be posting on Instagram here and there, and I will be giving away a few purge boxes, at some point. You can follow me there, but I’ll be sure to let you know here on the blog too.

I do have a few (or more) extra cards on my hands and I would love to share that sunshine with you. If you’d like Happy Mail, please click through to Postable and securely enter your snail mail address. I will work through all submitted address, deleting sents as I go. I cannot promise how long it might take me to get through everyone, but I will!

Have a safe, sane and relaxing summer and I look forward to seeing you all soon. Fun projects from Hero Arts, Spellbinders, My Favorite Things and W Plus 9 are already in the works!

xo, Janette
