A Wonderful Life...

Hi everyone! Have you heard about Spellbinders® Paper Arts newest little machine called the Sapphire Mini Die Cutting Machine, that is only available at JoAnn's. The machine cuts and embosses dies up to 2.25" wide, is affordable and portable!

For my card today, I've used Fleurs and Flourishes Die Set, an 11-piece set of beautiful flourish design die shapes, perfect for creating embellishments, adorning cards, scrapbook pages and more. Spellbinders® Sapphire die templates allow you to cut, emboss and stencil shapes to make beautiful handmade embellishments for cards, crafts and more. They have an affordable price, starting at $4.99,  that allows you to experiment with paper crafting without making a big commitment. 
 
My stamp set is called Peony Scrolls from Altenew (I love them and plan on getting a lot more) and I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers, a new love as well!
