Bright Fun Cards with Spellbinders Celebra’tions

Friday, May 15th, 2015

Karen N here today sharing some fun, bright cards I made using the Spellbinders Celebra’tions line of inks, papers, dies and stamps.  These super fun products are so easy to use because they all go together.  It’s like having those wonderful wardrobe pieces that go with anything!

Here’s a video that shows you the cards I made up close:

Both of my cards are in the “Celebrate” theme.  I made these just after a fabulous Mom’s day and my older son’s birthday, so I was in a celebratin’ mood.  In this first card, I cut some corrugated paper from my stash using the Sizzix Tickets and Tags Die on my Big Shot and then layered it onto a piece of the Captivating Coral paper from the Spellbinder’s Celebra’tions Solids.  I used my circle dies to cut a wedge out of that piece and a smaller circle out of wide cardstock.  On the smaller circle, I stamped a Spellbinders Celebra’tions Brush Stroke Stamp using Spellbinder’s Celebra’tions Ink in Cool Carribean.  I LoVe these brush strokes.  So FUN.  I then stamped the words from the Spellbinders Celebra’tions Many Words stamps in Captivating Coral.  I then layered that up on a piece of the coordinating Spellbinders Celebra’tions Prints and another piece of the Captivating Coral paper (and a butterfly punched from that same paper.  I splattered the corrugated paper with some Dylusions spray and added some sequins and twine.

The next card I made is perfect for using up some of those little scraps.  The patterns and solids are again from the same collection.  In this, I used the Many Words stamps again, but stamped the word using Pretty Plum.  The brush-stroke is stamped in Golden Glow.   The image here is cut out with the Spellbinders Celebra’tions Pierced Rectangles Die Set.  I stamped and cut the flower using the Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Stamp and Dies.  I added a touch of the Capivating Coral ink to the flowers.  The center of the flower are prills.  I added some twine and sequins as a final touch.

Spellbinders In’Spire Dreamcatcher Cards

Thursday, May 7th, 2015

If you’re like me it might be easy to overlook Spellbinders In’Spire dies. They look pretty simplistic, at least at first glance. I’m here to tell you don’t be fooled by first appearances!  These cards are all a standard A2 size 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, and they’re flat enough to zip through the mail without added postage.

Dream Catcher-001

This is the Spellbinder’s In’Spire die set called Dream Catcher.  Since I live in the Southwest I love this design it just speaks to my heart.  I just couldn’t figure out what I wanted to make. Often times if you have a creative stumbling block it’s best to just walk away and come back later, that’s what I did and then everything just seemed to flow together beautifully.

Dream Catcher-003

The sentiments I’ve used today on my cards are from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous collection Perspective.  I love these sayings!  You will notice in the video that I cut my stamps apart so that I could stamp part of the sentiment on the front and continue it on the inside.  Just make sure if you decide to do this you cut straight down not at an angle and that you don’t snip any of the other letters.  If you prefer not to cut your stamps simply use a post a note, mask off the portion that you don’t want showing, ink the stamp, remove the mask and stamp.  Easy-Peasy.

Dream Catcher-010

I did use another die set on the inside of the card above.  It’s the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Peacock Feathers.  I know it’s not the same feathers as the Dream Catcher but I thought it worked well enough for an inside embellishment.  I used a combination of Tim Holtz Distress inks in Vintage Photo, Spiced Marmalade and the new Abandoned Coral, together this combination matched my papers so well.  Off camera I still wasn’t happy with the yellow card base on the one card so I sprayed a couple of Lindy’s sprays on the parts that didn’t have mats or embellishments.  Worked perfectly.  If something doesn’t look right to your eye keep playing until you achieve the look that says ‘yep that’s right’, otherwise you’ll never be happy with the finished product.

Dream Catcher

I did use the Sizzix Precision Base Plate along with my Big Shot to cut the dies out, and I’ll also share in the video a technique I just started using with dryer sheets that worked fabulously.  I hope you’ll join me for the start to finish process, plus many more photos on today’s video.  All supplies from the store will be listed directly below the video.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Graduation Banner featuring Spellbinders Celebra’tions Dies

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

Don’t you just love to use a fun banner to celebrate an important occasion?  This banner is one that I made to celebrate the upcoming graduations at Cleveland State University.

banner

This banner was super easy to make.  I wanted to place it on my office door, so I needed to keep it kind of small.  Tag dies make great smaller banners, and I especially like the Spellbinders Celebra’tions Build a Tag One and Two die sets.  The straight tag and the scalloped tag nest together perfectly, giving me just the right color combo!  The finished size is perfect too — each banner measures approximately 2-1/8″ x 3-1/8″.  I began by cutting 14 green scalloped banners and 14 white banners with a straight edge.   To add the letters, I had the choice of either cutting green letters and gluing them on, or cutting the letters from the white tag so that the green beneath showed through.   I liked the second approach better, so I selected one of my favorite alphabet sets (Little B “Monogram”) and cut one letter from each of the tags.  For some of the letters, it was important to keep the “insides” to glue back in to form the complete letter (for example, O and D and R, etc.).  I cut two graduation caps from black cardstock – 1″ x 1″.  The graduation tassel was cut from another Spellbinders die set, “Victorian Tassels“.  Too easy!  I printed the logo onto white cardstock, and then cut it out using the straight tag die.

With all of the pieces cut, it was time for assembly.  I attached the white tags to the green tags using Angel Craft 1/4″ adhesive.  I used a little glue to replace the center of the letter (where needed), and to glue down the edges where the letters had been cut.  I made my two graduation caps by trimming the top of the tassel slightly (1/8″ – 1/4″), and then attaching the tassel to the black square using a black rhinestone.  The caps were attached to the first and last tags using a dimensional adhesive.  I glued sequins on the individual tags to decorate them further, and then punched holes in the top for the twine.  To string the tags together, I used some Maya Road bakers twine.  This twine is thicker than most, so one strand was perfect for the banner.  Here are some close-up photos of the tags —

A special occasion is just more fun when you have a banner to commemorate it.  With great tools like the Spellbinders dies, it is quick and easy to make the banners.  Please see the short video for additional information on how I created the banner.

Joy!Crafts Pop Up Butterfly Card

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

I really have a thing for apertures and pop ups.  They lend so much interest to your cards.  Today I want to share a new one I just discovered.

P1140990

This is a die produced by Joy!Crafts which is in the Netherlands.  This Butterfly Pop Up is designed by Gerti Hofman and it’s just gorgeous.  What threw me was when I opened the package the die is mounted on a piece of heavy acrylic.  When you run the die through your Sizzix Big Shot (or whichever die cutting machine you use) you leave the die attached to the acrylic and you not only get your butterfly aperture cut but you also get the score lines where you’ll fold the piece to fit in your card base.  (I cut the white piece the same size as the acrylic which was 5 1/2″ x 11″ and then cut a card back 6″ square.)  I used the new Sizzix Precision Base Plate and had to do a little fiddling to adjust for the thickness of the acrylic.  It cut beautifully though.

P1140994

I used corner pieces from the new Spellbinders Arched Elegance Pocket dies to form my butterfly (well it was supposed to be a butterfly) on the front of the card.  This die set also comes with the prettiest pocket piece.  I can’t wait to use it on a mini to tuck little bits and pieces into.  The little flourishes (with imagination you might consider them the butterflies antenna, lol) come from a Marianne Designs Creatables die called Vintage Swirls, it’s one of my favorites.

P1150002

The die cut butterfly is just gorgeous when you back it with a pretty decorative paper.  I used Graphic 45’s Once Upon a Springtime Classic collection for the card base.  The die cut leaving little prongs that extend it from the card base about 1/4″ out,  the result being this great 3 dimensional look when the card it opened.

P1140998

To finish the inside I used another Joy!Crafts collection called Roses, Have a Beautiful Day.  I used one of the corners to frame my sentiment.  That’s what drew me to this stamp set, these gorgeous border frames, so many opportunities to use them.  I actually cut the one I used apart because it had a strip across the top as well.  You can always cut your stamps to better fit your needs, just use good scissors and a careful hand.

I hope you’ll join me on the video as we walk start-to-finish during the process of this card.  Be sure and check out Joy!Crafts as well as the other vendors I’ve used in the Cut at Home store, links will be provided directly below the video.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
