New Spellbinders Hibiscus Dies 3 Ways!

I am loving Spellbinder latest flower dies! The Hibiscus Etched Dies from Susan's Tropical Getaway Collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn includes all the dies you need to create a realistic, dimensional hibiscus flower!

I found three ways to use these dies including cutting them out of white cardstock and ink blending on top:

And cutting them out of alcohol marker friendly cardstock and using alcohol markers to color them in.

And cutting them out of colorful cardstock and adding pencil coloring on top.

You can see these new dies and all three techniques in today's video:

Time for Tea and Simon Says Stamp Blog Hop + Giveaway!


Time for Tea Designs is so excited that their products are now available in the US over at Simon Says Stamp! To celebrate this, they have recruited some North American-based designers (including me!) to help spread the news with a blog hop. Be sure to hop along to see some adorable creations with a few of the new Time For Tea products that are now available over at Simon Says Stamp! We hope that you will be inspired along the way.

I absolutely love the little critters and images in the Paper Plane Pals Stamp Set and it was a blast to combine them with the Sun Ray Panel Die and Street Scene Builder Stencil!

The little paper plane dies cut out a slit to insert the little critters making it so easy to have them flying their plane! I flipped the right hand panda's plane upside down so he could be flying towards his friend!

The brilliant Street Scene Builder stencil makes it easy to create a silhouette of homes and to add glowing windows and doors too!

Of course I couldn't resist using the Sun Ray Panel die to create a shaker card!

Check out all these ideas and tips and tricks in today's video:

Now onto the giveaway!

Time for Tea Designs is giving away $30 worth of T4TD products that are now available at Simon Says Stamp! Be sure to leave a comment on EACH blog as you hop along with us to enter this giveaway.

Today I am sharing lots of card ideas for fall cards using the latest The Stamp Market stamps and dies.

There are some beautiful leaves stamps and dies to create a fall wreath.

There are layering stamps to create beautiful fall leaves too.

There is a very clever Leaflet die that comes with a small extra die set to create small leaf frames to die cut inlay the frames into the panel pattern.

There are layering Chrysanthemum stamps and dies and of course so many beautiful sentiments too.

Plus a layering Chrysanthemum die set creates big impact flowers too. I used three here on a slimline card.
