Sentimental Ampersand

Spellbinders Small Die of the Month January 2023

Hi All! I finally got around to using my SDOTM for January from Spellbinders. Did you know that Spellbinders has some really great club kits? I get the Small Die of the Month and the Glimmer of the Month. They are super fun and economical. I am always amazed at the price difference when they are available to the general public! Click here to check them out. Todays card is all die cutting and gluing. I have actually been doing a lot more die cut cards. If you don’t know, I teach a monthly card class in my community. I also sometimes have extra kits for sale from those classes. Check out my Local Classes page for more info. Now on with the Show & Tell…

The Ampersand was cut twice, once in Pear Pizzaz and once in the flowered paper. They were glued offset form each other, then after adding the die cuts I added 3D crystal lacquer JUST to the flowered pattern paper.

The sentiments are hot foiled in pastel pink. The color of this foil is amazing!

Pearls and Rhinestones for BLING!

What a great card! Such pretty colors! I made my first all die cut card today. I have been making cards for a number of years, and this was a first for me!

I feel the same way! It’s like if I didn’t color an image then I was not really making a card from scratch!
