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’!

Spellbinders Majestic Labels Cards

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

P1120626

Today I’m sharing two versions of the same card using Spellbinders Majestic Labels 1 and Spellbinders Shapeabilites Gold Corbels & Accents.  By using my suggestions everything else can pretty much be grabbed from what you have on hand.  That’s always a nice feeling isn’t it, using up our stash and stockpile, and yes, I know you have one just as I do!

This card is 6″x6″, a little larger than I normally make, but I wanted to have room for the center aperture to take the focal point.  I cut the dies nestling one inside the other, all but the outer die which I used solely on the cardstock to cut the front opening.  By nestling the dies you get three intricate frames to play with. You can get a good idea of the design from the image below.

P1120621

In the video I also cut the dies from a solid rose cardstock and show you the difference in perception when you alternate design with solid.  I’ll also share how I used some of the cut apart flower wreaths and swag I have accumulated from local stores for just pennies.  When you take them all apart you have a multitude of flowers to play with.

P1120622

You can see this vibrant deep rose flower and the delicate pink ones on the front of the card above.  Actually the deep rose flower started out as a poinsettia wreath I picked up last summer, I think I paid a quarter for the wreaths (I bought one in teal as well).  By trimming the flower petals from a pointed poinsettia shape into a curved flower petal you have a flower you can use year round.  The little pink ones came off a long swag and I can’t even guess how many little flowers pieces I got when I cut that apart, oh yes I paid just over a dollar for something that was twenty-five to start with.  I guess what I’m saying is look around at what you have, or what you see on those final final final clearance sections and see if they can be altered down the road to fit your needs.

P1120624

One last photo to show how I did the inside on this card.  This is the center part I cut from the front of the card, popped up on dimensionals.  Atop that is a Wilton 4″ doily I got from the food section at the grocery store.  I printed my sentiment directly on it.  By cutting the flourish I could tuck a little in the top and bottom to give the inside movement.

Very simple cards that give a very elegant statement, why don’t you make up a few today to have on hand?

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Frosty Blanket Cards

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

P1120077

Still have some Christmas cards to make?  Perhaps you can do what I did here, take a focal point from your paper, I used Heartfelt Creations - Frosty Blanket Collection.  Find part of the paper that draws you, in this instance it was this gorgeous door and then build your card on that.  I actually have only two layers on the card base, the decorative paper and a brown mat.  By taking the photo of the door, that’s printed on the decorative paper, you can expand your card to any degree of fussy.

P1120079

I embellished with Martha Stewart’s Pine Branch Punch over the top of the printed branches, just following their curve around the door.  Adding snow, in my case, Aleene’s Snow Glitter (it looks like toothpaste and dries hard) and some tinsel glitter I’ve made the snow dimensional.  I added some fussy cut flower papers, a few pine branches, and some snow to the wreath that was already on the door and finished the card with a pearl for the door handle.

P1120080

Again the inside is the beautiful decorative paper with a simple  embossed Merry Christmas on it.

P1120087    P1120083   P1120073

Check out my video below for more photos, the dies I used and how to’s on the three addtional cards above

all made from Heartfelt Creations Frosty Blanket Collection using the decorative paper as focal points.
