It was my turn to share a Savvy Saturday Video on the Spellbinders blog yesterday. I usually don’t scrapbook, so this weeks theme “Grand Layouts” was a bit nerve racking for me. I hope you have time to check out the page and let me know what you think.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

I created this card for Imagine Crafts.  We were to create a card with a theme, picking one of the new Kaleidacolor pad names as the theme. I knew I wanted to use Flourishes Italian Garden tomato image for my card.

Here are stamp by step instructions:

Stamp image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Color image with Copic Markers (YR09, R24, R29, R39, YG61, YG63, YG67, E31, E33, E35) and cut out.

Brayer Pistachio Memento Ink over the inside of the Flora M-Bossabilities folder and emboss a 2 1/2″ x 4 3/8″ piece of white cardstock.

Cut and emboss a piece of white cardstock with the 3rd largest Standard Circle Nestabilities die and sponge the edges of the circle with Summer Sky Memento Ink.

Adhere image over the circle with dimensional adhesive. Stitch embossed background to a slightly bigger piece of black cardstock. Tie ribbon around the lower edge of the embossed layer and tape circle to the lower right of that layer.

Stamp sentiment on lower left of the card base (3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock, folded in half) with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Finish off the card with black rhinestones.

Thanks so much for coming by! Have a wonderful day!

Hi everyone! I am very excited to be able to give you a sneak peek of a soon-to-be released  Spellbinders Paper Arts die called Just Swingin’. I love this die set. You can use it several different ways, making it very versatile.

 

Supply List:

 

Cross Promotional Partners:

  • Basic Grey: Aspen Frost 6″ x 6″ paper pack
  • Flourishes: Country Road
  • Want2Scrap: Fancy Bling Border

I started by folding a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock in half and round the bottom corners. Unfold the card base and place wax paper over the front. Adhere the die down with removable tape (or  Post-It notes).

I ran the die/cardstock combo through my Grand Calibur, first with the cutting, then with the embossing sandwich. (Hint: This is an intricate die, you might have to run it through your machine twice to get the detail cut completely.) I carefully pulled the die off the card front.

I cut a piece of Basic Grey Aspen Frost paper a tiny bit smaller then 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. The corners we rounded and the edges were sanded, then stitched.  It was adhered into the inside of the card and a sentiment from Flourishes Country Road was stamped with black ink on the bottom right corner.

I cut and embossed the tire swing twice out of white cardstock. On one I cut off the hanger before I adhered it to the back of the other tire. I wanted to have the embossed tire on both sides, since I planned on hanging the tire from the tree with a piece of linen thread. This way, even when the tire swings, it looks great, no matter what side is showing.

To show you a different way to use the dies, I created a shaped card with the outline die that comes with the frame. I love creating shaped cards. Have you tried creating shaped cards with Spellbinders dies yet?

I have another video post to share with you on the Spellbinders Paper Arts blog. The coming week is all about Nestabilities®. Nestabilities started my love for Spellbinders products. Once the original shapes came out I was hooked. In the video I talk a bit about some of my favorite techniques you can do with Spellbinders dies and show how to create this telescoping image.

I hope you have time to stop by, check it out and tell me what you think. I would love to hear from you!  Have a wonderful weekend!
