Spellbinders June Card Kit of the Month

I have three projects to share with you today made using the Spellbinders June Card Kit of the Month.  There are so many elements I wasn’t quite sure where to start.  I love so many of them but have to admit I really loved the flower and foliage dies in the set.  You’ll see I used them on all three of my cards.

Spellbinders June Card Kit of the Month has so many fun elements.I love the designer paper with the pretty blue flowers and tiny yellow buds.  The blue and green cardstock in the kit matched the pattern perfectly.  The pretty delicate lacy doilies are a soft and feminine addition to the paper and created a perfect background for the floral arrangement. The largest lace doily was attached t the blue strip using double stick tape.  The smaller doily was attached using a piece of mounting tape.  I cut the flowers and formed them using my stylus and molding pad.  I cut several sections of foliage to use as the base for the arrangement. I attached the largest flower to the doily using glossy accents and then tucked the foliage under the flower and attached with glossy accents.  I finished by attaching the smaller flowers to the foliage with glossy accents and applied the tiny yellow pre made Nuvo Crystal drops to the flower centers.

 

Come check out how I used the Spellbinders June Card Kit of the Month to create a floral spray card.

The black paper with the red, yellow and pink flowers was so pretty and I thought it would look great with the red cardstock, butterfly and gold flowers and foliage.  This is a little out of my wheelhouse but I love how it turned out.  I cut the designer paper in half and trimmed it with a section of gold cardstock.  I attached both pieces to the red card base using ATG adhesive.  I traced the butterfly on the red cardstock and then cut it out with my snips to use as a base for the butterfly.  I attached the two butterfly sections together using glossy accents. and then attached them to the card base with pieces of mounting tape.  I attached the flower and foliage to the butterfly using glossy accents.  I attached the sentiment with mounting tape and finished by adding a few more pieces of foliage.

Come check out how I used the Spellbinders June Card Kit of the Month to create a butterfly card with gold floral embellishments.

I created a smaller 4.25″ square card using the white and gold banner layered on the pink gingham.  I loved the die cut heart and thought it looked so perfect with the addition of the single flower and pieces of foliage.  I cut the banner die in white and gold and attached them together using double stick tape and then attached them to the card base using double tape.  I used the die cut heart as a stencil to trace on a piece of white cardstock, cut it out and attached it to the back of the heart using rolled up pieces of double stick tape.  I attached the heart to the banner using pieces of mounting tape and then embellished with the little white flower and a foliage section.

Come check out how I used the Spellbinders June Card Kit of the Month to create a gold heart and floral embellishment.

The Spellbinders June Card Kit of the Month has so many great elements, pretty pieces of designer paper and matching cardstock and ribbon. The Spellbinders kits are a perfect way for a new paper crafter to get started.

Spellbinders Release Blog Hop

Good Wednesday morning.  I’m excited to be participating in the new Spellbinders release blog hop and using wine die cut images from the new Wine Snippet set from the Wine Country Collection. To celebrate this release, Spellbinders is giving away a $50 gift certificate to a lucky winner. Please leave a comment on the Spellbinders blog by Sunday, April 22nd 11:59 pm EDT for a chance to win. The winner will be announced in the blog hop post on Spellbinders blog the following day. Winner is responsible for shipping cost, duties and taxes. 

You should have arrived here from Janette Kausen’s blog and your next stop along the hop will be Olga Direktorenko.

Wine die cuts are perfect to use for gift cards.

I began by applying versa to the Wine Snippets die cuts and embossing embossing with super fine gold embossing powder. I repeated the process a second time to get full coverage on the images. I attached the images to the the Fleur de Lis layers using Crafter’s Pick glue and then attached both layers to the card base using mounting tape.  I used square Matting Basics A and B sets to create the frames and attached them to the images using 1/8″ double stick tape.

Wine die cuts are perfect to make gift cards to accompany a gift of wine.

I think smaller 3 x 3 cards are perfect to use as a gift card when giving someone a bottle of wine.

Wine die cuts are perfect to use for cards and gift cards.

Thanks for coming by today.  I hope you enjoy seeing all the beautiful projects along the hop .  I’ve linked all the Wine Country wine die cuts and stamps collection below.  You can see all the new release new collections in the “New Arrival” pages.

Layering Colors with Die Cuts for Dimensional Flowers

I like layering colors with die cuts for dimensional flowers to create interest when using a solid piece die.  My project today was made using the Spellbinders Field of Poppies die that combines the flowers and foliage all on one piece.  I could have easily cut the die using white cardstock, colored with markers and used it as a single layer on my card.  But I really like to add as much dimension as possible to my projects so I chose to cut the piece in green and then cut the flower portion of the die with colored cardstock.  The frame was made using the Annabelle’s Trousseau Layering Frame

Color layering with die cuts to create dimensional flowers is fun and adds so much interest to a project.

Once I cut the flowers out in the three different colors I trimmed away all the connecting foliage pieces.  I formed the large flowers with my stylus and molding pad and then attached them over the green flower background using glossy accents. I offset each flower a little so the green would show up like a foliage base behind the flower.  I trimmed the green sections off the small flowers and attached the colored flowers over them.  I didn’t want the green to show behind them.  I finished the larger flowers by adding white Nuvo Crystal Drops right in the center.

Color layering with die cuts to create dimensional flowers is easy and adds so much interest to a project.

The main frame was attached to the card base using small pieces of mounting tape.  I cut a second frame section straight across the lower half of the frame to use in front of the flowers.  I added the decorative piece to the front frame section using Crafter’s Pick glue.  Crafter’s Pick is great to use for decorative pieces because it dries perfectly clear. I trimmed the bottom side portions off the green flower section so it couldn’t be seen behind the decorative openings of the frame.  I applied double stick tape to the back of the solid portion of the frame and attached the row of flowers.  I used large pieces of mounting tape on the back of the frame, lined it up over the back frame and attached it to the card base. 

Color layering with die cuts to create dimensional flowers adds so much interest to a project.

I wasn’t quite satisfied with how the row of flowers looked against the straight cut of the front frame.  I cut another green section, trimmed off the smaller flowers and foliage stems, attached the flowers with glossy accents and then tucked them in behind the frame allowing them to overlap to add a little softness and a more natural look.

Thank you for coming by today and I hope I have inspired you to add dimension to your solid piece dies. Cutting out the flowers was a little time consuming but layering colors with die cuts for dimensional flowers on a solid die makes it well worth the effort.

Gold Embossed Flower Cart with Decorative Frame

l had so much fun making this gold embossed garden cart with the decorative frame.  I used the Spellbinders Lavender Trike and Tallulah Frill Layering Frame.  Although the color referred to in the title of the trike die is lavender I couldn’t resist using pretty pink for my flowers against the all the white background.

A gold embossed flower cart with a decortive frame makes such a pretty card front.

I cut the whole trike image out one time using white cardstock and then cut the flower pot sections of the die multiple times so I could create more pots of flowers for my scene.  I cut the flower pot portion off the trike image, applied versa over the image and embossed with super fine gold embossing powder.  I applied a second coat of versa and embossing powder to create full smooth embossed coverage. 

Making a gold embossed flower cart with a decortive frame makes such a pretty card front and is not hard to make.

I colored the flower stems wit an Olive Grove Memento Marker and the flowers using an Angel Pink Memento Marker.  I applied Rusty Hinge ink to the flower pots using a mini applicator.  The flowers appeared a little too pale for my liking so I used a mini applicator to lightly apply touches of Worn Lipstick ink to add more depth of color.  I attached two flower pots to each basket on the trike so it would look full and overflowing with the flowers.  The pots were attached to the gold embossed baskets using small glue dots.

A gold embossed flower cart with a decortive frame makes such a pretty card front and is so much fun.

The decorative frame was attached to the card base using rolled up double stick tape. I used mounting tape and rolled up glue dots to attach the trike and flower baskets to the card base.  I added the small decorative element from the frame set in front of the trike wheels and tucked a few more pots of flowers in behind it with rolled up glue dots to finish.

Thank you so much for coming by today and I hope you have been inspired to try your hand at creating a gold embossed flower cart with a decorative frame.
