Creating A Floral Thank You Card | Spellbinders

Today I created a card using some products from Spellbinders!

I created my background using the solid leaf images from the Botanical Feather from Spellbinders set and Midnight Green cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped the images with Versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I popped up the background panel onto a base that was the same color.

I stamped the floral image from the set four times and colored them in with Copic markers. I cut the flowers out using my Scan N Cut.

I stamped a sentiment from the Floral Love stamp set from Spellbinders onto a die cut circle with Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. I mounted that circle to a vellum circle and popped it up on my card. I then arranged the flowers around the circle and glued them with Gina K Connect Glue.

I stamped another sentiment from the Tiny Words stamp set from Simon Says Stamp onto some black cardstock and embossed it in white. I cut that to a small strip and glued it to my card. For the finishing touched I added some sequins, some Wink of Stella, and some dashed lines with a gold marker.

Spellbinders Small Die of the Month January 2019 | First Crush

Today I am sharing a card created using the Spellbinders Small Die of the Month Club. This kit allows you to put together a cute little paper doll and it comes with lots of options so that you can make a really unique character. It also comes with dies to make a cute little heart balloon.

I cut out all of the pieces for my doll from different colors of cardstock. I used a piece of patterned paper for the dress. I also cut out the balloon and sting.

I used Gina K Connect glue to put my paper doll together. I decided to make a 4x8 card base for this design and I popped up a blue piece of cardstock onto that. I glued down my paper doll to the card. I also added the heart balloon.

Using a T-Square ruler and a white gel pen I added a frame around the doll. For my sentiment I stamped the ‘hugs’ stamp from the Floral Love stamp set onto some dark gray cardstock. I stamped it with Versamark ink and embossed it in Alabaster white embossing powder. I cut the sentiment into a strip and popped it up on the side of the card.

For the finishing touched on the card I first went over the balloon with Glossy Accents to give it some dimension. Next I added some cute puffy heart stickers around the sentiment. I used a white gel pen to add some details and highlights to the paper doll. Finally I created a fun wavy swirl design along the background using my white gel pen, some small clear star sequins, and a Wink of Stella glitter brush.

Embossed Vellum over Watercolor | Spellbinders

Today I created a card featuring some stamp sets from Spellbinders.

1.jpg

I started out by taking the large floral image from the Floral Love stamp set from Spellbinders and stamping it on some vellum with Versamark ink. I was sure to prep that vellum with a powder tool first so that I would have no trouble with embossing. I embossed the flower stamp with some white embossing powder and then fussy cut the image out with scissors.

Next I taped down a piece of Canson watercolor paper to a board. I got the whole paper really wet with clean watercolor and then started dropping in color. I used my Gansai Tambi watercolors for the painting. I used color numbers 34, 33, and 40. I really like the soft edge you get when you paint onto wet paper. I kept all of the painting towards the upper left corner of my paper. Once I finished the first layer of color I dried it completely with my heat tool. I added a second and a third layer of color, this time painting onto dry paper. I made sure to leave some of the first layer showing so I could still have that nice soft look. To finish up the painting I took the metallic gold color (color number 91) and tapped little splatters of it onto the paper with a paintbrush.

For the sentiment on my card I used the Family Sentiments stamp set from Spellbinders. I picked out 4 different stamps to create a sentiment which says “for my amazing friend.” This stamp set is really great because it allows you to make a lot of custom sentiments for different family members and friends. I stamped my sentiment onto the watercolor paper using my MISTI tool. I stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with a gold embossing powder. I adhered my watercolor piece to an A2 size card base which already had a piece of slate colored cardstock on the front.

I took the vellum piece that I created earlier and using lots of very tiny pieces of foam tape I popped it up in the upper left corner of the card. To finish up the card I added a bunch of crystal clear sequins along the edge of the vellum piece. I glued them down with my Gina K Connect glue.
