Stamping on Acetate | Spellbinders – FSJ Stamp of the Month | April 2020

Hello, my crafty friends! I hope you’re all staying happy and well! I’m very excited to show you the new Stamp of the Month from Spellbinders and Fun Stampers Journey. This stamp is called Bold Beautiful for obvious reasons. There are 14 stamps included in this set, and they are red rubber stamps. I adore red rubber stamps because they stamp out the delicate lines of the images so perfect and crisp. There is so much you could do with this set. Any art medium would be fun to use on these images, but they are all so beautifully drawn, you wouldn’t even need to color them in. SOM-APR20-Product-Pac

I love all of the gorgeously detailed floral images and that rectangle stamp is fabulous!! I’m sure we all have rectangle dies in our stashes, but it’s great to have a rectangle frame stamp–this can be used in so many fun ways.

To create my card I stamped out the rectangle frame and then the bold beautiful sentiment onto a piece of acetate using StazOn Ink. This ink comes in many colors, but I just stamped it out in black.

I then used some warm brown ink called Potter’s Clay Memento Ink to stamp out my patterned background. I randomly stamped out all the floral images from this set except the larger flower and leaves image–that one I stamped out twice on another piece of Desert Storm card stock. I colored in all my images with Moonlight Gelly Roll Pens. I need ed something bright so my images would really pop behind the acetate. After my coloring was complete, I fussy cut out my two flower and leaves images, popped them up with foam tape and adhered them onto the acetate.

To glue the acetate onto my floral pattern panel I added liquid adhesive behind the flower and leaves images. The acetate covers the whole front of my card and provides some fun shine to the card. It was really difficult to capture that in a photo, but if you watch my video you’ll see the fabulous shine.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Take care, everyone! Hugs!

Spellbinders April Card Kit Release & Card Projects |Weekend Fun 2020

Hello everyone! It’s time for Spellbinders’ April card kit! The card kit is called Weekend Fun. It’s a very eclectic kit this time–the elements range from old-fashioned cameos to peaches, bees, and fizzy drinks. You can do so much with this card kit, and they provide you with card-bases, tape, anything you could possibly need to create many gorgeous cards. It’s an all-in-one kit–even envelopes are included!

Image11

Card #1: Beautiful Cameo Card

I chose to use the cutting dies first. I love cameos! Look how pretty this silhouette is, and the necklace cutting die just pushes it over the top–so darling! I used a piece of navy blue card stock and one of the floral pattern papers behind my silhouette–the navy paper really makes the silhouette pop! No coloring involved, just cutting dies and paper. The sentiment is from the Die Cut Shapes pack.

Image1

Card #2: Everything’s Peachy Card

I really love this bold pattern paper. The green card stock matched it perfectly, so I used two cutting dies to cut out a frame. I surrounded the peach sticker with tiny flower die cut, and I cut up an oval frame die cut to create the leaves for my two flowers. This card was super fast and fun to put together.

Image2

Card #3: Hey You Flower Bouquet Card

For this card I used a piece of coral pattern paper to cover my card base. I then added a triangle of purple pattern paper in the corner. I covered my seam with a strip of gold metallic paper. I added on two sticker, some sequins, and this card was done!

Image3

Card #4: Old-Fashioned Cameo Card

I wanted to create a cameo card with a very old-fashioned feel to it. This piece of pattern paper did the trick. I also used Spellbinders’ new Hemstitch Rectangle dies to cut out the pattern paper. I love how the pink card stock behind the pattern paper peeks through the stitching! This time for the silhouette, I used the pale pink card stock. I glued on two more die cuts behind it to add a touch of dimension. I love her gold choker necklace!

Image4

Card #5: Retro Dog Card

This dog die cut shape is my favorite of them all! Look at his cute little face! I used a very retro-looking piece of pattern paper behind him, and glued on lots of extra little die cut shapes. The sentiment is one of the chipboard sticker.

Card #6: Bee Happy Beehive Card

One of my favorite techniques is to stamp my images on pattern paper and color them in with colored pencils. I used the retro looking paper again for this card. It provided an excellent base color for my beehive and bees. The cutting dies from this kit include dies to cut out this bee as well as some hexagons–I love that! I was too involved in playing with these cute stamps, and I didn’t plan ahead as to where I would put my sentiment. I ended up stamping it on a piece of peach card stock and tucking it under my beehive.

Polychromos Colored Pencils: Cadmium Yellow, Caput Mortuum, Orange Glaze, Light Purple Pink, Light Cobalt Turquoise, Violet

Image6

Card #7: Beehive Celebrate like You’re the Queen Card

I love the color combinations on this card. Purple and yellow are complimentary colors, but add in a blue background and you’ve got something really special! I had fun playing with the stamp set again and die cutting the bee and the hexagons. I stamped the images onto a piece of the peach card stock and colored them in with colored pencils.

Polychromos Colored Pencils: Bee Hive – Cadmium Yellow, Light Yellow Ochre, Caput Mortuum, Flowers – Orange Glaze, Light Magenta, Manganese Violet, Crimson, Mauve, Light Purple Pink, Light Cobalt Turquoise

Card #8: Hugs Card

All of the pattern paper from this kit is exquisite! I particularly love this painterly looking pattern. I adhered it to my card base leaving an 1/8 of an inch boarder around the sides. Next I glued on my hugs chipboard sticker–make sure to use glue behind these because the adhesive on the back isn’t very strong. I put two of the same butterfly die cut shapes together with a little bit of foam tape to make is dimensional.

Image8

Card #9: Queen Card

For this card I took inspiration from the example page from the kit. I like how they used strips of paper down the side of their card, so I did that on my card. The crown on top of the silhouette’s head is a die cut shape, and I there is a piece of pattern paper that complimented it perfectly. I also cut out the silhouette with gold metallic card stock and staggered it behind the white silhouette to add some shine to the piece.

Image9

Card #10: Yay Card

I added lots of my left over strips of card stock on the front of my last card base. It really is a great design to used up these left-over pieces. I glued down the yay chipboard stickers, and then for some reason, I couldn’t stop adding element to this poor card–lol! I really like how it started but not how it ended up. This is one of those–at least I had fun–cards.

#spellbinders, Easter/Spring Cards

Spellbinders | Small Die of the Month Club Kit | 24 Carrot

Happy Friday! I have some really fun card projects to show you today! I’m using Spellbinders’ Small Die of the Month Kit to create some adorable Easter cards. This set is called “24 Carrot,” and it includes 9 cutting dies.  Aren’t those bunnies adorable!! I love that giant carrot too.
24CarrotDies

Card #1: Giant Carrot with Bunnies Card

For my first card I wanted to use both of the super cute bunny dies. I cut them out with  white card stock. I love how these dies cut out some of the details on each bunny like their whiskers and the arms on the standing bunny. There is also a die for the insides of their ears and their tails. I wanted to put the bunny with the die cut arms on top of the carrot because it went along with the sentiment, “What’s Up.”

The pattern paper I’m using is from Spellbinders’ March Card kit, and it is also an add-on, which means you can buy it separately from the kit. I used a piece of gold mirror card stock to cut out the frame of the carrot and another piece to mat my pattern paper. I also used some of the Gold Fleck Gemstone to embellish my card–also sold separately from the card kit. Those bunnies just make me happy!

Card #2: Giant Carrot Shaker Card

The carrot cutting die creates the perfect frame for a shaker card. I used some Darice thin strips of foam tape behind my carrot frame, added some orange sequins, and attached it to a piece of white card stock. To add dimension to the carrot tops, I adhered some down flat to the pattern paper and some on top of the shaker element. The blue bow hid the ends of the greenery very well. The bow is from the Die Cut Shapes which you can also purchase separately. I used more pattern paper from the march release called Feeling Hoppy.  I have never created a shaker carrot element before–you never know where card crafting will take you–Lol!

Card #3: Graphic Style Easter Card

I just couldn’t get enough of this standing bunny–he is so darling! I cut out this bunny die with very bright colors of card stock. I allowed the gray card stock to show through the bunnies’ eyes and noses. The gray rectangles I popped up with foam tape. I also switched up the ear die cuts to add a pop of color to each bunny. I glued down my sentiment flat on the gray rectangle and glued the left-over bunny tails around it for a cute embellishment.

#spellbinders, Any Occasion Card, Embossing Folders

Spellbinders Cut & Emboss Folders | Kyoto & Lahaina

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I have some fabulous new crafty products to show you!  Spellbinders has new embossing folders in their shop! I love creating cards using embossing folders; they provide so much fun texture and dimension. However, the folders I’m using today also cut as they emboss!

CutandEmbossFolders1200x1200

The first Cut & Emboss Folder I’m using is called Kyoto, named after a city in Japan. Don’t you love the beautiful fans it embosses onto the paper? To me the look is also reminiscent of the 1920’s Art Deco era with its clean, geometric shapes.

I chose a very pale pink piece of card stock to emboss. To accentuate the design, I blended some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink across the panel with a foam blender. The raised edges pick up the ink and really bring it to life. I matted my panel with a piece of  gold mirror card stock to show off the diamond-shaped cuts.

I embossed it again with another piece of pink paper and cut out one of the fans, so I could showcase it on the front of the card. I also added a little tassel with some baker’s twine.

Kyoto Folder 1200

On my second card project I used the folder called Lahaina named after a city in Hawaii. I love all the gorgeous leaves leaves on this folder!

To create my card I used a piece of bright green card stock. I blended on more Distress Oxide Inks to bring out the texture. The colors I used are Crushed Olive, Evergreen Bough and Peacock Feathers. I used white card stock behind this panel, and I love how brightly the white shows through.

Lahaina Embossing 1200

I didn’t create a video for my projects; however, below is a link to the video that Spellbinders produced showing all four of their new cut and emboss folders.

Thank you for visiting today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Below are the links to all the products I used to create these cards.
