Hello Crafty Lovelies and welcome back! Have you checked out the new Christmas, Holiday and Halloween goodies from LDRS Creative yet? So many cute things! Today’s card is featuring the Layered Poinsettia dies, along with a couple of the Modern Geometric Coverplates. So, let’s just get right into the details, shall we?
I began the project by die cutting all of the pieces from the Layered Poinsettia set twice from watercolor paper. I pulled out a water brush and Karin Brushmarkers. I saturated the pieces with water and dropped in the color using the markers. I added more color on the bottom poinsettia layer to get a darker color.
I adhered the two Geometric Coverplate dies together using glue and then glued them to the card base, which also happens to be Neenah 110lb. I opted for a small sentiment from the LDRS Potted Poinsettia stamp set. I stamped the sentiment on Neenah 110lb using VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder and trimmed it down.
I had to play around with the placement of the flowers, leaves and sentiment. I did decide to cut a leaf die out of mirror gold cardstock, because I thought it would tie in well with the gold sentiment. I placed foam tape on the back of the flowers and adhered those in the corners, while gluing the leaves underneath them. The sentiment was also attached using foam tape for added dimension. I had to add bling, so I opted for a few PinkFresh Studio Gold Metallic Pearls.
That finishes up this project! I love the added texture in the background from the cover plates! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you’ll stop by and check out all of the new holiday products on the LDRS website. Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Friend and thanks for stopping by! For today’s project, I’m featuring the Chill Bear and the Color Block Scenic Scape dies from the July releases from Spellbinders. There are so many beautiful and adorable Christmas and holiday things to choose from! I had a lot of fun playing with the Chill Bear, so let’s get into the details!
I cut a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 80lb cardstock just smaller than an A2 card, because I needed something to glue the “hills” to. I began adhering the hills to the panel using liquid glue, leaving the tops of the panels unglued so that I could tuck the trees inside. Once the trees were dry, I sprinkled some Crystal Glitter over them to give just a little bit of sparkle.
To finish up, I adhered the panel to a red cardstock panel using foam tape and that was then adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. I hope you enjoyed this project, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hey there! Thanks for stopping in today! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! Is it too early for Christmas cards? I don’t know that I’ve ever made a Christmas or holiday card in August! But … All the new Christmas goodies on the Spellbinders website are just too good to resist! Today’s card is featuring the new Layered Christmas Tree Stencil. I had a lot of fun with this one, so let’s get right into the details!
I cut a panel of Neenah 110lb cardstock just smaller than an A2 card, and also used the Spellbinders Color Block Scenic Scape dies to cut some “hills.” I adhered the hills to the panel using liquid glue, but leaving an open area on one of the hills so that I could tuck the second tree in there. I then used the snowfall portion of the stencil and applied Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel Iridescent over the panel and set that aside to dry.
I tucked one of the trees in the open space that I had left on the hills and glued it there. I glued the star to the other tree and put foam tape on the back of that one and adhered it atop the panel. I used the Spellbinders Holiday Sentiments Series 2 to gold foil one of the sentiments, and adhered it to the panel using foam tape again. All of this was then adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb.
That does it for this project. A super fun card to make! I hope it inspires you to get crafty. Hop over to the Spellbinders website to check out all of the new Christmas and holiday goodies they have to offer! You won’t be disappointed. Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Crafty Friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful day! There are tons of new Christmas and holiday releases over on the Spellbinders website, and I’m super excited to be featuring the new Kaleidoscope Argyle dies from the Slimline Collection! This was such a fun set to work with, so let’s go ahead and get into the details!
I began this project by cutting the main triangle grid element from this set twice from Spellbinders Mirror Gold cardstock. I chose one of the three triangle elements from the set and cut that maybe six times from Spellbinders Cranberry Bliss cardstock. I decided that I wanted some dimension to the triangles, so I cut a bunch from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and adhered one layer to each of the triangles using liquid glue.
I reserved the center pieces from the gold and red triangles, because I wanted to inlay those on the opposite triangles on the finished project. I cut a mini slim line panel of Neenah 110lb and adhered the gold grid element overlapping in one section for better symmetry on the card. I then adhered the gold triangles in the center first.
Then, I moved on to adhering all of the red triangles, trimming off the excess. I glued the inlay pieces in the center of the triangles as well. I added some of the larger Spellbinders Fashion Gold Embellishments to the edges of the grid element for added dimension and interest. I adhered the panel to a panel of the Cranberry Bliss cardstock using foam tape for some contrast as well.
I used the Spellbinders Christmas Mix & Match Sentiments for my sentiment. I cut it once from the same Mirror Gold cardstock and twice from Neenah 110lb and adhered those together using liquid glue. That was then adhered directly to the card panel before adhering everything to the card base.
That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it! Even though this set was used to make a Christmas card, it can certainly be used year round using different colors!
