The Spellbinders Prizm
Spellbinders sent the new compact portable Prizm , die cutting and embossing machine to review.  

This is a fabulous solution for folks who like to be on the move and take their crafting supplies with them - on vacation, to outings and craft get-togethers, cropping ( scrap ) events, those folks who are short on space and cannot fit a large die cutting machine in the craft space. 

My Projects:
The tiny Die-D-lites are great for making quick cards, smaller projects and accent pieces on scrapbook pages.  I decided to showcase the dies by making some simple cards.  

And these are the projects I created using the sweet Prizm and Spellbinders Die D-lites. 

This card was made using Spellbinders Die D-Lites Layered Cake S1-006

Poppy Card using JustRite Stamps

I'm here to show off my wonderful JustRite Papercraft dies and stamps.  The June releases are now available and my card just happens to be featuring one of the magnificent stamp sets - Multi-Step Poppies-CR-05055
Why is this Multistep stamp so cool? 

This is a multistep poppy stamp that helps you build your own flowers and  ink as you go.  
Why are these so cool?  Picture this is your head.....You have a gorgeous poppy stamp and you want the final stamped image to have some definition when stamped.  Perhaps you want the outline  of the image to be bold black  and you want the actual flower to be orange with a red /yellow inside.  
In the past you'd have to get out your colored markers and color the actual stamp with different colors, then stamp - while holding your breath for the results.  

No more!  The guess work is gone. These let you decide how to color your image one stamp at a time.  Go ahead and pull out the black and stamp.  Next grab the orange and stamp away with confidence.  Need a little red?  That's cool. Go for it with one of the stamp layers.  

I also used one of the prettiest dies on the market to help the softness of this card: JustRite Garden Circles Die. 

I used an embossing ink pad to stamp my image.  Then I covered the embossing powder with fine white embossing powder and heat set.  I knew I wanted the end result to be delicate.  

The papers I used were from Maja Design and are from the Coffee in the Arbour collection.  

Here are are some more close ups.  

Thanks so very much for stopping here.  I appreciate your time.

Peace Card - using Prima and Frank Garcia's Tales of You & Me

Prima and Frank Garcia - Tales of You & Me

While the world is anxiously awaiting the new summer releases from Frank Garcia for Prima, I will continue to love and adore and use my Tales of You & Me collection as well as his wonderful Memory Hardware trinkets and embellishments.   

Don't get me wrong - I am anxious as well to see what Frank releases and what that  creative genius conjured up for us.  

Here is my card - gussied up with the embellishments that go along with the Tales of You & Me collection and some Memory Hardware tossed in.    

I filled Frank's - Vintage Trinkets Strasbourg with Glass Glitter in gold to help accent the warm vintage gold in his wonderful Rocquencourt Doily Lace - also from his Memory Hardware collection. 

Thanks for stopping here.  Enjoy Frank Garcia's collections! You can find the Tales of You & Me collection right here.  You can find Frank's other collections here as well and all the other fun Prima goodies at the Flying Unicorns Store
