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.

Back to Basic Dies   Saturday, July 12, 2014
by Linda Lucas   Post Type: Card

I am sure I have said it before, but I have never met a Die I do not like - the Spellbinders Dies are in a league of their own.  I love going back to the basic Dies, they are a great starting place for a layered card, with co-ordinating Dies or eclectic - they are also able to stand in their own right!

Start by stamping the image onto white card stock, then cut/emboss using the Grand Calibur Die Cutting Machine and the Labels Eight Nestabilities #5.  Use the Die as a stencil before removing the Die Cut image, by sponging using Delicata Golden Glitz and a Sponge Dauber.

 

 

 Using orange card stock cut/emboss two (2) Label Eight Nestabilities. Score one Labels Eight at 5/8" and fold forward.  Adhere to the first Labels Eight using double sided tape, making sure the patterns line up as shown in the photos above.

 

 

Cut/emboss one (1) Decorative Labels Eight Nestabilities using sage green card stock.  Remove the small pieces from the Decorative Labels Eight Die using the Tool 'N One. Adhere using E-Z Runner to the card base.

 

 

Adhere the Die Cut image to the layered card base using 3D Foam Squares.  Attach a sheer double bow using liquid glue, followed by a vintage button.  Apply Want2Scrap Eternal Swirl bling, as shown in the photo, along with white pearl to the top right hand corner and around the filigree frame.

 

Spellbinders, Linda Lucas, Basic Dies, Nestabilities, DIY Handmade

 

Stamp the sentiment onto white card in Memento Bamboo Leaves and cut/emboss using a tag from the Back to Basics Tags. Using the Die as a Stencil, sponge with Delicata Golden Glitz and a Sponge Dauber.  Adhere, slipping the tag end under the button.

 Floral Fence card

by Christine Emberson

This is the final day of June Jamboree, our summer die releases! Today, we're featuring the very lovely Floral Fence. This is such a pretty die and it occurred to me it would look beautiful cut/embossed in multiple colors.

Instructions:

This is a great project for using up scraps of colored card.  Select some of your favorite colors, cut/emboss Floral Fence multiple times until you have a nice colorful selection.

Select different areas of the design that would like to be a different color, for example – the fence bottom section could be brown, the floral stems green.  Cut these sections from each die cut.

 

You are then reassembling your die cut with the different overlays of color. Lay each color over your base die cut and adhere with liquid glue.

Create a white base card, pink matting and stamp a sentiment onto white cardstock.  Position your rearranged die cut so that the sentiment is to the middle. 

 

 

Cut/emboss some further small flowers and add some sparkly gems to the middles. 

 

Thanks a bunch

 

Also add three further gems to the top area of the card.

Thanks a bunch 

Your card is complete.  I hope you feel inspired to create a multi layer colorful Floral Fence.

Spellbinders June Jamboree Day 8   Thursday, June 19, 2014
by Guest Author   Post Type: Card

by Lesley Langdon  

Welcome to day 8 of Spellbinders June Jamboree! Today, I am sharing with you a classy tri-fold card that looks like an envelope and is held shut using eyelets and ribbon. What makes this card special and whimsical, are the new Dandylion and Celebration Two In’spire die templates! With multiple sets from the In’spire Line, you can easily mix-n-match within the collection or use them with your other Spellbinders® die template. I love putting that extra fold in a card to make use of the 12 inches of a cardstock paper. You can make a little folded pocket for a gift card, or like in this project, you can place the fold on the outside to make it open like an envelope. To keep it closed, I used eyelets and some ribbon, which also adds that classy feel.  


Spellbinders Supplies:

Preferred Partner Companies:
Cross Promotional Partners:
Other:  Wax Paper, Scissors, Paper Trimmer, Eyelets, Eyelet Setter, Liquid Glue, Brown Marker




Instructions:
1. Cut 12 x 7 piece of black cardstock.  Score at 5 and 10 inches. Make folds. You may need to trim edges slightly to make fold flat. 

2. Mat white cardstock onto card front folds (sizes are 4.75 x 6.75 and 1.75 x 6.75).



3. Cut/emboss Spellbinders Dandylion and Celebration Two (Hello Friend) sentiment from blue patterned paper using the tip above. For the Dandylion, trim a rectangle from patterned paper and cut/emboss Spellbinders Dandylion, using a layer of wax paper in between the die template and the paper. You will use both the die cut and the negative of the die cut (for the inside). So make sure to save all your pieces - even your wax paper die cuts! 


4. Adhere the Dandylion to the cardfront, trimming the excess stem from the bottom. Using scissors, trip the Dandylion heads from wax paper and glue on top of patterned paper for dimension. 



5. Cut Hello Friend again using black cardstock. Using liquid glue, adhere the blue sentiments and black sentiments together, black on bottom to make a sharp outline. Glue "hello" to card front. Save "friend" for the inside.

Hello Friend


6. Mark with pencil the spots for the eyelets in the center of the card. Adhere eyelets.


7. For the inside of the card, use the negative of the Dandylion cut to make a matted frame. Glue pieces that form the negative to get the full Dandylion shape. I used patterned paper for the backdrop. Once you have a frame that is no larger than 4.75" tall, adhere to the inside right of the card. Fill up remaining space in card with a blank piece of white cardstock. This is where you can write your message and tell your friend to "Make a Wish". Glue "friend" to inside of card.



8. Cut 5 Dandylion seeds from white cardstock, color seeds with brown maker and glue to inside of card with liquid glue as if they're falling. 



9. Adhere green gems to Dandylion on the card front and run ribbon through eyelets and tie bow to close card.



I hope you enjoyed Day 8 of Spellbinder's June Jamboree. This is such an easy project and the In'spire products make cards so beautiful and effortless.
