Craft Hoarders Hop for May today...

Hi everyone and thanks so much for stopping by today with our Craft Hoarders Hop for this month. We all have lots of fun projects that we did with things in our stashes so i hope that you will have a chance to stop by all the girls blogs and see what they have to share.  If you started from the beginning you should have arrived here from Patti's blog.....

My post today is sharing 3 cards that i did with some of my favorite dies from Spellbinders in my stash of dies.  I have so many that i want to use so I thought today would be a good time to start!

For this card i used little bits of things that went with this heart paper and the sticker sentiment.
The die for this one is called Swirl Delight and is a Die D'lite and it fit perfect behind the sentiment that i also matted in gold.  I found some bias ribbon in my stash from Really Reasonable Ribbon
and also a bit of gold thread and a gold rhinestone that i had too.

This one too is from a bunch of different things i found while cleaning up my scrapbook room.  I  
love the poppies and thought it would be fun to cut them up and create a little bouquet on a
few layered Spellbinders dies that i had.  One of them is called Diamond Essense and the other is another favorite called Doily Die and you can find them on the Spellbinders website.

Another new die is called Ferns and is a Die D'lite too.  It's fast becoming one of my 
favorites because the size is perfect for flowers and there are 3 styles in it so it's perfect
to add extra foliage to your flowers.

This is made with one of my favorite new Spellbinders dies called Labels 50 and it's companion
die called Labels 50 Decorative Accents.  The base is made with an embossing folder from
Richard Garay's line and since all of it had so many beautiful details i decided to do it in white
so that all of it would really stand out.  I also put a few Ferns in it from the die set and added a
pretty flower and bow from my stash of goodies that i have.  

The Heartfelt thanks is from Verve Stamps and i just found that one again too while i was
cleaning and straightening up this last week and it went perfect.  I used my favorite black ink
from Tsukineko (Versafine) and that was it.  Super easy and ready to give to my friend.

I hope everything gave you a little inspiration to create a few things and maybe something
nice for your mom this Sunday too.  Thanks so much for hopping over to my blog today 
and be sure and hop on over to Jacquie Southas blog to see what she has to share.... 
and if you want to start at the beginning be sure and go to Gloria Stengels blog :)

Have a wonderful and crafty day!!


  1. Three gorgeous cards, Teresa! All different and unique. I have to say the first one is my favorite, though. I have this paper collection and it is a favorite! So easy to use and I love the colors and designs.

  2. Beautiful cards, Teresa! Love the elegance of the white on white and the detailed layers on the third card!

  3. What beautiful cards, each is so pretty and elegant! I especially love that white one!!

  4. I love that you used not only your hoarded dies but "junk" from cleaning up! I have bags of odds and ends sitting around here from projects...I need to do something with them. Thanks for sharing your ideas!! The cards are ALL lovely!
