Spellbinders / February 2024 Stamp & Die of the Month Club
02/06/2024

Hi everyone!

It’s the 6th of the month and that means this month’s Spellbinders Clubs are released to Club Members!  Here’s a bit more information about the Clubs:

Do you have a green thumb?  I absolutely do NOT!  I had a houseplant once that I managed to keep alive for about 5 years.  To be honest, that plant had a lot of sentimental meaning to me since it was a gift we received when our beloved pup, Sienna, passed away.  Somehow, I felt that I had to keep it alive.  Despite some heroic attempts in the end (that included taking it to a greenhouse for advice) it did, eventually, die. And I cried.  It was horrible and ridiculous.

If you’re wondering what this has to do with my card today, well, I’ll tell you:  I have a friend with an amazing garden.  Every year her garden has the most beautiful flowers – including lilies.  This month’s club stamp and die had me thinking about those lilies and the fact that I admire (and envy) her love for plants – and, mostly, her ability to keep them alive. 

I used a no-line water coloring technique for this card by first stamping my image with Antique Linen Distress ink.  Since the Distress inks are dye-based, they virtually disappear when you watercolor over them.  It’s a fun technique and I think it yields some gorgeous results.  

Leave a comment and let me know if you have a green thumb!  As for me, I think I’ll stick to paper flowers. 

I hope you have a wonderfully creative day!

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
