Spellbinders. Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello dear friends!

Thank you so much for joining our Blog Hop today to celebrate Spellbinders’ new release:

I’m so happy to present you two new collections:

I created several cards with dies from Die D-Lites Collection. 

The first is  with a Camper Trailer:

I’m really in love with this red trailer. All the details are so tiny and beautiful!

I colored the details with alcohol markers and pleced them all onto the card with foam squares. I also added several stamped trees, die cut fenсe and clouds to create a landscape. 

The next card is with tractors:

I also colored all the details with markers. But for the sky, hills and grass I used some inks, ink blending tool and masks.

I didn’t have the sentiment that fit here, so I printed it on a piece of cardstock and die cut a cloud that says “Work hard for your dream”)

And for my last card I used these funny Robots:

I think they are perfect for the kid’s birthday card. My 9 year old son likes them so much!
