Chevron Thank You Card & Tag by Beck Beattie

 

Spring is in the air in my part of the world. I was inspired to bring a touch of it in today’s project. I am sharing a card and tag made with the new Diagonal Chevron die set. Although some know me as the "Chevron Queen" for my love of chevrons, I have worked hard not to use any on this project! LOL! I hope you enjoy what I did with the die set. Creating matching items is something I love to do. This card and tag ensemble is perfect for a little thank-you gift.

Hello! It’s Julia and I’m so excited to be joining you for the 12th Day of Christmas Blog Hop here at Spellbinders! I’m new to Spellbinders and today you’ll get to see another great new release from Spellbinders. It’s such a beautiful die set that I know you’re going to love it. A traditional snowflake set with a beautiful modern touch. Let me introduce you to the new and stunning  Snowflake Bliss S4-433 die set.

s4-433 Snowflake Bliss

These snowflakes are just so beautiful that I decided on just simple die cutting to show them off best. One of the great things about this die set is the snowflakes look lovely both on their own and layered together.

Snowflakes are a beautiful counterpoint to circles and for this design, I decided to create a bokeh effect by combining the two. Die cut vellum circles are the perfect way to do that. It gives the design a soft dreamy effect…just like softly falling flurries.

When creating my holiday cards I look for designs that are fairly simple to create (because I’ve got LOTS of cards to make!), and yet, also stand out designs that look fabulous, as many folks like to use cards they receive as a part of their holiday décor.

It’s my pleasure to share the new S4-434 Holiday Greetings die!

 s4-434 Holiday Greetings

This is such a versatile die!  Each row of words, snowflakes, trees or candy canes can be used separately or they can be used altogether as one unit.


Supplies:

GC-001 Spellbinders® Grand Calibur® machine

S4-434 Spellbinders® Holiday Greetings

S5-131 Spellbinders® A2 Matting Basics A

Art Institute Glitter, Inc – Dubonnet Opaque, Crystal Transparent

Bazzill Basics Paper® - Aqua, Nixon, Prismatics Crabapple Dark

Imagine Crafts®/Tsukineko® - Memento Luxe Olive Grove ink

KaiserCraft – Just Believe Collection: Keepsakes, Remember, Starlight, Winter

Scor-Tape™ - ⅛ʺ, 1ʺ

Holiday Script stamp

Cream Card Stock

Shimmer Cord

Cream Shimmer Ribbon

Distress Inks – Antique Linen, Pumice Stone

 

Instructions: 
First, I have a card created with the entire cut out.

I’ve used a technique with glitter and Scor-Tape to fill all the cut out spaces. 

To make the card, first cut aqua paper with largest die from S5-131 Spellbinders® A2 Matting Basics A.   Repeatedly stamp holiday script along left edge.

Center Spellbinders® Holiday Greetings die template on the aqua piece. Cut/emboss. Carefully remove paper from die leaving all letters and other small pieces in the die.

Place aqua piece face down on non-stick craft sheet or parchment paper. Apply strips of 1ʺ Scor-Tape™ across back of each row of cut outs.  Turn paper over. 

step outs

Apply 2 strips of very low tack/non residue painters tape over Joy and Noel words.  Pour Crystal glitter over tress, snowflakes and candy canes. Firmly press and rub glitter into the Scor-Tape.  Remove excess glitter.  Very carefully remove low tack tape.  Sprinkle words with Dubonnet glitter and press firmly.  Remove excess.  If some glitter sticks because of tape residue, use brush to remove. 

Mat Holiday Greetings with cream cardstock.  Simply remove Scor-Tape backing to stick to mat.   Cut 3 - 2ʺ ribbons.  Fasten at left edge behind mat and even with Noel, Snowflake and Joy rows. Fasten all to large dark red mat.   Fold ribbons and fasten ends behind red mat.  Slip glimmer cord through each ribbon loop and tie tiny bows.  Fasten all to 5 x 6½ʺ piece of snowflake paper with inked edges and attach to cream card.  

Joy Noel

Remember all the cut out shapes in the die?   Here’s the technique to remove them from the die in perfect alignment!

Apply strips of 1ʺ Scor-Tape to back of Holiday Greetings die over each row of images – snowflakes, words, etc.  Press the tape firmly against paper pieces.  Very carefully lift end of each tape and peel back with paper pieces stuck to tape.  Use the point end of Tool n’ One™ to help pieces release from the die.   Next, sprinkle glitter over each tape and press it into the tape. 

I chose Crystal glitter with the snowflakes and trees and Dubonnet glitter for Noel, Joy and Candy Canes.   I used each of the strips on a different card. 

Holiday Greetings Card by Judy Hayes

Looking for other card ideas? You can make at least six other cards from one piece of the paper cut with S4-434 Holiday Greetings!    

Trees Card

Cut striped paper to fit card front.  Stamp along edge.  Apply glittered tree strip to cream card stock.  Mat with green, red print and aqua papers.  Ink mat edges.  Fasten 3 red brads at end of trees.  Attach to card front.

 12 Days Trees Card by Judy Hayes

Snowflake Card

Hello everyone! This is Yana and I’m excited to be introducing the S2-118 Holiday Sentiments dies!

 S2-118 Holiday Sentiments

I love using sentiment dies as they work well to complete just about any project! I created two cards to share with you today - a traditional and a modern one to demonstrate how versatile these dies are!

 

For my traditional card I was inspired by the holiday decorations. Every year I try to get new ornaments for our tree and now seem to have just about any color/shape possible!

Happy Holidays card by Yana Smakula

To create this card I used the largest die and insert from the SCD-012 Pierced Rectangles set to cut and emboss grey cardstock. I then used a paper piercer to enlarge to die cut holes and stitched the paper by hand. You can use your sewing machine to add stitching, but by having these die cut holes you can have your stitching look more neat.

I than used on ornament from the S4-405 Mix-N-Match Ornaments to die cut a window in grey cardstock and card base.

 

Next, I used the ornament insert and die cut a window out of vellum, layered the negative vellum piece in between the card base and grey cardstock.

To create a sentiment I die cut the Happy Holidays out of white cardstock and used clear embossing ink pad and gold metallic embossing powder to give it a gold metallic look.

To add some interest to my background I also heat embossed a few elements using clear stamps. Finally, I adhered the pieces together using foam squares and used SCT-001 Celebra'tions Linen Thread to create bows.

 

 

For my second card, which is a modern holiday one, I created a video tutorial to show you in detail how my card was made.

I’m sharing an easy inlaid die cutting technique for my sentiment and talk about how you can create an embossed frame for your one layer cards. Enjoy!

Hello everyone! It's Heidi here! Today I am excited to be sharing one of the beautiful new Christmas die templates S6-015 Snowflakes View with you.

s6-015 Snowflakes View

This is a wonderful die set with a decorative snowflake edge. I created two projects using the S6-015 Snowflakes View dies. In this post I've included a tutorial for the first project.

 

Spellbinders Supplies:

S6-015 Snowflakes View

S6-001 5 x 7 Matting Basics A Card Creator

S4-404 Create-a-Flake Five

GC-001 Grand Calibur® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine

 

Cross Promotional Partners:

JustRite® Papercraft CR-02062 Signs of Christmas Clear Stamps

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® 3D Foam Squares, E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips-Refillable Dispenser 49’


Other Supplies:

Metallic Pearl, White Cardstock

Silver Metallic Ink and Embossing Powder, Heat Tool

Copic Marker B00 Frost Blue, airbrush system

Butterbeescraps AB Crystals

Pearls

Heat Tool

 

Instructions:

To create the frame, nest Snowflakes View die #2 and #3 (the smallest die is #1) face down on to a piece of metallic pearl cardstock and secure with tape. Cut/emboss using the Grand Calibur Machine.


 Here is a look at the beautiful die cut frame. Add 3D Foam Squares to the backside of the frame. Put the other die cut aside and save for the second project.

 

Using Snowflakes View die #1, cut/emboss with a piece of metallic pearl cardstock to create another decorative shape. Stamp a sentiment from the Signs of Christmas Clear Stamps with silver metallic ink.  Then added silver embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

 

Using S4-404 Create-a-Flake Five and metallic pearl cardstock cut/emboss the snowflakes.  Next airbrush the die cuts using Copic marker B00 Frost Blue.

 

Layer the snowflakes using 3D Foam Squares and then add crystals.

 

To create a large top fold card cut/emboss S6-001 5 x 7 Matting Basics A die #7. Cut another piece of cardstock that is the same size but add a ½" to the length. Score at the ½" on the second piece of cardstock.

 

Add adhesive to the ½" strip that is scored. Place the 5 x 7 Matting Basics A die cut on top and adhere to the scored piece of paper. Doing this allows you to create a larger top fold card.

 

Once all die cuts are assembled as shown, this card is ready to be displayed!


Snowflakes View by Heidi Blakenship


For my second project I altered and dressed up a plain white gift bag to match the card.

Using the same supplies listed above for the card, I just add some silver metallic string to hold the little card in place at the top of the gift bag. Do you remember the die cut that was created when the frame was done and I said to set it aside? I used that die cut as a center piece of the gift bag and added a layered snowflake.


 snowflakes gift bag by Heidi Blakenship

To create the card I cut/embossed using S6-015 Snowflakes View die #1. Then score and fold down the center. Add a small layered snowflake. Punch a hole in the top, add the silver metallic string and tie on to the gift bag.

Thank you for joining me today!  I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and projects as much as I enjoyed creating them.

 

Hugs & Smiles,

Today for the Spellbinders 12 days of Christmas blog hop and reveal I have the privilege of showing the S5-223 Heirloom Reflections die sets.

S5-223 Heirloom Reflections

It is a stunning and elegant die set and as soon as I saw it, I thought of antique Wedgewood blue ornaments with a gorgeous textural ivory overlay. I love the depth of Wedgewood blue china pieces and their simple elegance. In creating this card, I wanted to capture the feel of a beautiful ornament lying in its padded box just before being hung on the Christmas Tree during a cozy family gathering.
