Wishing You Well card Featuring Spellbinders NEW Blooms Four

Did you hear??????
Spellbinders has just released a new bunch of Die D-Lites!!! Can I just say how much I ADORE these dies!?!?! I HAD to show one of them to you right away!
Aren't they GORGEOUS!!?? Check it out all cut out and assembled! I cut it out of ivory cardstock and inked them with Tsukineko's VersaColor ink in Petal Pink! So pretty!!
I also played with some other fun dies, which I will show you in the video, along with a really cool technique using M-Bossabilities Folder, Score Pal's Score board, and curved boarders! See a close-up here...

So now that I've shown you all the details, let me show you the full project! :)
And here's my little video! PLEASE excuse the poor quality today. The sound is not great, and what I was seeing on my ipad is NOT what you are seeing... I was zoomed in, but YOU are seeing my messy table too!! LOL! But, like I said at the beginning, video blogging is unedited! :)
Here we go!

Thanks so much for stopping by and for watching my video!!In case you have been avoiding leaving comments due to the word verification, I am happy to say that I have removed it! :) I am now moderating comments instead.
So comment away!! :)
Until next time,
Happy Creating!!
