Spellbinders Die D-Lites Create A Lily Cards

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

I’m back this week with another set of cards using Spellbinders Die D-Lites Create-a-Flower dies.  This week I’m using the Lily dies to create two cards and three different colored lilies to give you some inspiration and ideas for your own flower garden of cards or embellishments.

Lily-011

You aren’t going to pop these flowers out in a minute or two, but the time you spend will be will worth it when you hold the finished product in your hands.  They are so delightful to make.  Once the petals and stamens are glued to the base you can really see the flower take shape from paper pieces to a beautiful embellishment to add to your cards or projects.

Lily

I used lily images from Google to get an idea of how to do the spots on the flowers. On the card above I used some lace from my stash along with papers from Tim Holtz new Wallflower paper collection.  A few metal pieces and a stickpin were just enough to complete this A2 size card (4 1/2″ x 5 1/”).

Lily-006

The second card example is using a pink lily.  I cut the petals from pink cardstock and painted the edges with white pigment ink.  The die underneath is Spellbinders French Harmony.  Adding just a wrap of pink stained seam binding to the flower gives it a nice finish.  I tucked in a flower spray and stick pin from my stash.

Lily-007

Please check out my video for a step-by-step walk through of how to make a yellow lily.  Be sure to check out the huge assortment of flower dies in the store to create your own garden of embellishments.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Easter Cards Featuring Graphic 45 And Spellbinders

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

Today I want to share some Easter Cards featuring Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments papers and several Spellbinders die sets.  I love the beautiful Graphic 45 papers — there are so many different ways that they can be used.  The same is true of Spellbinders die sets — particularly the “card creator” sets.  Together these products make beautiful cards.

IMG_4381  IMG_4383

IMG_4386  IMG_4380

I also made some Easter wreath cards using the Graphic 45 papers and a Spring wreath die.

IMG_4391  IMG_4389

The key to the cards is to first identify an element on the Graphic 45 papers that will serve as a focal point.  I looked to two papers in the Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments collection for my card inspiration — “All My Love” and ”Easter Greetings”.  Each paper has a lot of choices to offer, but you first have to “unlock” it from the paper.   This is portion of the “Easter Greetings” paper.

052

You can see the elements here are separated into “boxes”, so it is possible to use your paper trimmer to separate the boxes.  Sometimes you can use the item as is, and other times it will be desirable to cut away the “box” and just use the remaining image.  You’ll decide that when you decide how you want the card to look.  For example, I wanted some small images to use with my Easter wreaths, and so the smaller pictures along the side of the paper were perfect.  I just trimmed the extra borders off and they were ready to go.  Other images I wanted to use with the Spellbinders Card Creator dies, and so it was necessary to fussy cut them, at least a little, to fit into the space available.

This is a picture of a portion of the “All My Love” paper.

054

Here the images and elements are intertwined, and you need to first figure out how to separate and isolate the image that you want to use for your card.  I began by hand cutting this paper into about thirds.  I started by cutting just underneath the roses (I’m left-handed so I started cutting from the left side of the paper), and between the butterflies, up above the umbrella, and then dipping back down to miss the egg, etc.  Once the paper was in a more manageable size, then I looked at the strip of paper I had cut and determined which images were intact and which I would feature on a card.   I ”freed” those first from the paper strip to avoid any inadvertent  damage while cutting other images.  Usually when I’m making cards, I only cut the images I really need at the time, and I set aside the remaining parts for another time when I will cut out the other useable images to add to my stash.  Please see the short video for a more detailed description of how I “free” images from patterned paper, and also some tips on fussy cutting.

Assembly of the cards is quite easy.  I cut A2-sized background layers (4.25″ x 5.5″) from various solid cardstock.  I like to use metallic cardstock for this since it adds a bit of shimmer and interest.  Then I cut a variety of layers from ivory paper using several of the Spellbinders card creator sets including Tranquil Memories, Filigree Delight, Diamond Effects and Floral Ribbon Threader.  I love the detail that each of these sets adds to a card.  From there it was a matter of determining which element(s) I would select from the “cut” pile, and what layers were appropriate for them.  I added ribbons and other embellishments, as appropriate to finish the cards.  The four cards I made this way are –

IMG_4386  IMG_4380

IMG_4383  IMG_4381

For the “wreath” cards, I did not use one of the Spellbinders die cut layers because I wanted the emphasis to be on the wreath.  Sometimes I just stick with plain edges, etc. to avoid losing my focal point.  For the two wreath cards I cut a colored background layer that was A2-sized (4.25″ x 5.5″), and an ivory layer that was 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″.  I attached the ivory layer to the background layer using Scor-Tape.  I cut two wreaths — one from green cardstock and one from vellum.  The vellum wreath was placed over the top of the green wreath (you can secure these with adhesive if you like — I did not feel it was necessary).  I wrapped the wreath with ivory/gold baker’s twine, and then adhered it to the card layers using a low dimensional adhesive.  I added the ribbon at the bottom of the card.  Next I added the cut element from the Graphic 45 papers to the bottom corner using regular dimensional adhesive.   Then I decorated the remainder of the wreath using die cut flowers and sequins, and added the ribbon “tie” at the bottom.  The two wreath cards are below –

IMG_4389  IMG_4391

All of these are very easy, simple cards to make.  Of course you can add more to them if you prefer.  Some people cut the image (or parts of the image) two or three times, and pop them on top of one another to create a dimensional image.  You could also separate the images into even smaller parts and change the placement, etc. or pop smaller parts of the design.  Of course glitter always enhances a card and adds to its style.  There are just so many options.  It is all up to individual taste and style.

Card Making: Spellbinders Embossed Window Cards

Monday, April 7th, 2014

Today I made a couple of window cards for Easter. both cards are embossed window cards. Below are a list of supplies that I used for the cards.

For the first card I used the following supplies that are available at Cut at Home.
Crafts Too Embossing Folder, Invitation – SKU: CTFD3052
Spellbinders Elegant Ovals – SKU: S4-425
Magnolia Rubber Stamps, Exclusive Easter Egg – SKU: 102005-1
Supplies used from my stash, Hazel and Ruby Scalloped Away Decorative tape, Ribbon, Gems, Bazzill card stock, Smooch paint and TPC Studio Sunny Bunny clear stamps.
image
I started with a 5″ x 7″ card base that I made, then I did the cutting and embossing, I am sure there is more than one way to accomplish this, I shared mine in the video below.

image
After I got my pieces cut and embossed I assembled my card, I stamped the center and embossed it with clear embossing powder and a heat gun, then I colored in highlights with smooch paint. Then I stamped the sentiment and fussy cut it. I finished with adding the decorative tape, ribbon and gems.
Here is the finished card:
image
I was really happy with the finished result. I also decided to make a second card, this card is much simpler and took considerably less time. Here is a list of the Cut at Home products that I used:
Darice Embossing Folder, Easter Bunny – SKU: 1218-43
Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals, Small – SKU: S4-113
Echo Park Mini Theme 12 x 12 paper, Hippity Hoppity – SKU: 1218-43
I also used a few things from my stash, I used the scalloped tape again, I also used Queen & Co Pearls and CoreDinations Box of Chocolates card stock.

For this card I embossed the CoreDinations card stock and sanded it with a sanding block, I also cut an additional piece of that card stock 1/4 inch larger and framed the embossed rabbit. For this card I cut out the scalloped window after I embossed the paper and sanded it, it came out fine. I cut a 5″ x 7″ piece of patterned paper from the Echo Park collection, I also cut out a smaller scallop in the patterned paper, I assembled the card, I use a sticker from the collection for inside the scallop and the Easter banner on the top of the card. I added the scalloped tape, ribbon and pearls.
Here is that finished card:
image
This card was a quick and easy card to make, but it looks nice and has a lot of interest.
Now I have a start on my cards for Easter, I hope that you enjoyed my projects!

Until next time, Thanks and Happy Scrapin!

Card Making: Spellbinders ‘Create-a-Gerber Daisy’ Cards

Monday, April 7th, 2014

Gerber Daisy-015

Spellbinders has a whole set of Die D-Lites ‘Create’ flower dies, the Gerber Daisy is just one of them so be sure to check out the rest and see which ones you’d like to add to your flower die collection.  In the video below I show you step-by-step how I created the pink flower on the right above and then a complete walk through as we make the card on the left.   You can see how just a change of color, from Marigold to Pink, can totally change the look of the daisy.  

Gerber Daisy-001            Gerber Daisy-011

The flowers were colored with combinations of Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Spiced Marmalade with Dried Marigold and Picked Raspberry with Spun Sugar. The petals were cut from light cream cardstock.  I love how they turn out!  It’s just a matter of staining a portion of each petal and then gluing to a petal base and stacking from largest to smallest. By curling each petal toward you it only takes a moment to see the flower begin to take shape.  Easy, peasy!

Gerber Daisy-007

The 5″ x 7″ card was created with Spellbinders Divine Eloquence dies.  By far one of my very favorites.  This time I cut the dies several times and split some of them to give extra filigree to the sides.  That’s always a great way to get another look, by splitting the cut in half sometimes even quarters.  Alternating between the cream cardstock and the latte color just makes the layers pop.  I also added foam dimensionals to the back of each set of mats giving just a little height and allowing the layers of flourishes and filigrees to show.  The ribbon is white rayon seam binding that was colored with Distress inks.

I hope you’ll join me in the video to see how easy it is to assemble both flowers and cards.  And don’t forget to check out all the other flower dies available in the store, you can have your own florist shop at home with just a few dies and some paper!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

JustRite Stampers Owl Be There Stamp Set!

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

I was thrilled to get a hold of JustRite Stampers Owl Be There stamp set by Samantha Walker as I have just recently been blessed with another sweet granddaughter, who was proclaimed by her mother to be a “night owl” right from the get go, and we have kind of used an owl theme for this little girl that has been a lot of fun! My daughter made an owl receiving blanket, and crochet an owl beenie hat (adorable!) and I made an owl quilt for her. Purple seems to be the color choice for her as well.

So, since we already had an owl theme, when I saw the Owl Be There set I knew it would be the perfect choice to make her card with.

Owl Be There

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Clear Stamp Set includes twenty-four stamps with owls a tree stump and lots of little sentiments with an owl twist. It is really cute!

Even though I had to fussy cut around the owl and stump, this card was super easy! I colored the stamped images before cutting them out,  and I simply inked around the edges of the inner die cut and outer edge of the card. On the inside I used a sentiment I had from a Fiskar’s set.
