Spellbinders. September Blog Hop+Giveaway

Hello my dear readers!

Today I’d like to invite you to join our celebration of the new release from Spellbinders which includes four amazing Christmas collections: A Sweet Christmas by Sharyn Sowell, Zenspired Holidays by Joanne Fink, A Charming Christmas by Becca Feeken, Holiday Die D-Lites.

I played with Zenspired Holidays by Joanne Fink. I mast say that I liked all the stamps from this collection! Especially I loved stamps that goes with coordinating dies. I used almost all of them to create my today’s card.

For leaves I used SDS-160 Holly Bells set, Bow is from Christmas Candy SDS-162 and the sentiment is from Christmas Sentiments SS-165. I colored all the details with pencils, die cut them and adhered onto the card base.
