From Cheery Lynn's blog . . . you might want to add any of these dies that you currently do not own to our open catalog order available at Art 'n Soul right now! The Hearts and Leaves embossing plate would also look gorgeous on wedding cards!

Someone was asking about the dauber storage box I use for the daubers I use with Tsukineko's StazOn inks  . . . here it is! We order them from Gary Burlin and you can put in a pink sheet order . . . I'm putting in another order because I am going to separate my daubers, i.e., StazOn, Brilliance, Distress, etc.

Several paper pads arrived yesterday and there might be a few left yet today. Basic Grey's Konnichiwa, Out of Print and Plumeria 6x6 pads arrived, as well as Graphic 45's Little Darlings in 8x8 pads and some of the 12x12 papers (be sure to look at both sides of these papers!).

'I am super excited to be sharing  my first post here with you today. I am still pinching myself that I can call myself a Spellblogger now!  Holly, Kazan and Julie left some huge shoes to fill. Please go easy on me and my fellow new Spellbloggers as we start our new journey here!

Our first theme is Luck of the Irish. For that share I thought I combine two of my favorite things I like to do with Spellbinders dies: a shaped card and a die-cut frame.'

"I started out by cutting and embossing my card front with the second smallest of the Grand Scalloped Squares, my largest layer with the second smallest Grand Squares die and the patterned paper, that will end up inside my circle, with the third largest of the Standard Circles LG. I love that the Grand Calibur® Machine can cut several dies at once!

Irish Blessings Step 1

To create my card base I scored a 5 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock in half, then placed it over the second smallest of the Grand Scalloped Squares , making sure that the folded edge of the card base was not being cut with the die and sat inside the die.


To create my frame the largest of the Tear Drop Circles and the third largest of the Standard Circles LG were placed over a piece of white cardstock. I adhered the dies with removable tape to the cardstock to make sure the frame would come out perfect and then cut and embossed the frame.

The edges of the patterned paper I had cut earlier were sanded with a sanding block to reveal the embossed inner edge and to give me the look of an added layer.


A sentiment from Flourishes Irish Blessings was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink inside the circle and a swirl from Flourishes Wedding Bliss was added underneath. An image from Flourishes Irish Blessings was stamped in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers. Smooch Glitz Lime Twist and Goldrush was added over the image for extra sparkle. The image was adhered over the lower left side of the frame.

The frame and sanded circle were adhered on the back side with dimensional adhesive.


Ribbon was threaded through one of the tear drops in the frame.
My Mind's Eye Paper were stitched to the white square I had cut and embossed earlier. The frame was adhered over the layers and the ribbon was tied.


Gorgeous new Fancy That! Border Bling from Want2Scrap was adhered to the top left and bottom right corner of the layers. They were adhered to the card front which was then taped to the card base with Scor-Tape.


Here is a close up look of the clover bouquet to show you the wonderful sparkle you get with Smooch Glitz.

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my first blog post!
Hugs and smiles

I have lots more pics to share with you from Journal Club's meeting on Friday and the fantastic Die-Cutting Demo by Marj and Dianne on Sunday. Wi-fi problems last night and other technical issues prevented me from uploading last night, so I'll be trying it again tonight!

If you're in western Washington, watch out for those falling snowflakes   . some of the flakes appear to be quite large!
