Our coneflowers started blooming earlier this month, which reminded me about these pretty paper ones! Here's this year's version.

Here is my last card that uses the new Christmas release from Spellbinders. This one features their Flourished Tree glimmer plate and some green glimmer hot foil. I kept the design CAS and let the foil be the star!
Part of the design of the tree is tiny little diamonds - I used those as places to add my sequin "ornaments". I chose to to use a green foil for this first time using this plate, but I think it would look really elegant done in gold foil on a cream background, too. Once again, I used the glimmer sentiments; the size of them is perfect!
I think I'm finished for this month with Christmas designs, but I'll have some more in August!

With all the Christmas stuff I've been posting lately, I felt a real need to return to present day, so today's card feels like summer to me! There have been lots of lemon-themed cards showing up lately, which reminded me about this washi tape. Love this sweet shade of yellow, too!

Today I'm playing with another fun set of dies recently released by Spellbinders this month as part of their Celebrate the Season collection. I've always wanted a sled die set so I was thrilled to get this one!

Here's another new set of dies from Spellbinders' Christmas release. They're called Holiday Blooms, and I mixed them with some gold foiling and another new set of Holiday sentiments.

I received my August card kit from Simon yesterday, and decided to use one of the lovely patterned papers and a beautiful script sentiment for today's card. These somber colors lend themselves to sympathy cards.

I was thrilled to be able to play with this new suite of products from Spellbinders called Parcel & Post. It consists of a set of dies to make a darling mailbox, plus dies to use for Christmas or Everyday. I chose the Christmas suite, and here is my card.

Altenew's Painted Flowers stamp set is still a favorite of mine, and they recently brought out a little add-on flower. And I finally got myself this pretty Ornate Frame from Pink Fresh Studio - here's their first play together.

I'm ashamed to say that I have only used this pretty background die once before. Recently I was looking for something else and came across it and thought it would make a lovely match to my new flower dies that also have lots of stitched details. So I chose my favorite blue and here's what I came up with.

I finally brought home this Lawn Fawn Floral Wreath die after seeing my teammate Karin's cards recently, and have been having a ball playing with it. I like it because it lends itself to straight coloring, but there are additional dies so that you can paper-piece it, also.
I have 2 cards for you today. First is the paper-pieced version.

Happy 4th of July!!
Here's my first play with the new Hollyhocks Botanicuts from The Greetery. These flowers have lots of memories for me from my Gramps' garden, (I remember using the blossoms to make little dolls!), but I haven't had much success growing them myself, so I'm pleased to be able to grow some paper ones!
