I'm stopping by today to share a few cards I've made with some of the dies from a brand new Spellbinders collection called Truly Yours! I paired all these products with patterned papers from various Maggie Holmes collections.
I have a process video for you at the end of this post, so I'll just leave you with photos here. If you're interested in how these came together, what supplies I've used, please stop by my You Tube channel! All supplies are linked in the description box below the video.
Here's the process video:
That's it for today! I hope I could inspire you in one way or another!
I'm stopping by today to share a card duo I've created for the Paige Evans Design Team! I've used the gorgeous Wonders collection on these.
I change my mind a lot. Like, ALL.THE.TIME. This started out as a layout - with the same design, only the triangles were bigger. I wanted to create a grid layout with them and use maybe 4 2x2 photos as well. Maybe that's an idea you can use? I didn't, because I liked the triangles on white background the most and I am no white background scrapper. Looking at it, it was just not me. Had I had super light gray card stock, or even better, patterned paper (there was one in one of Paige's older collections but I don't have it anymore), I would have gone with that. So, what's a girl to do with all the cut up paper pieces? Use them on cards of course!
I started out by cutting apart the paper with all the 2x2" squares on it, then I cut all of them in half. I didn't use all of them on these cards, I chose the more solid ones and those that didn't have a white background. For the card on the left, I cut this triangle in half again, for the card on the right I cut the smaller triangle in half once more.
I cut two slimline card panels (3.5x8.5") from Neenah Solar White 110lb card stock and started adding the triangles on them in a rainbow kind of order - to see if they would even fit this size. And they did!
Once I figured out the arrangements, I started gluing them down. I was planning to stitch them down in the middle and wanted to be able to curl them up too, so I only added a teeny tiny bit of liquid adhesive in the middle.
When the panels were done, I added some zig zag machine stitching. I then created two side folding card bases and glued my panels on top.
Now comes the fun part! Creating dimension! I just used my fingers to curl up each triangle. I actually really liked the look where I only did the top triangles of each square but then I wanted to see what it would look like if I did all of them...And then there was no turning back :D
Both sentiments are from the 2x2" phrases swatch book. I just cut out the part I needed. I think one said It's Time to Celebrate, the other had some icon right above it, as far as I remember. I went tone on tone with these, well kind of. The green sentiment sits on a green and a blue square, the purple is placed between blue and purple squares.
To finish off the cards, I added a few gold puffy sticker hearts and some gold paint splatters.
That's it! Super simple! Maybe one day I'll try this design on a layout too, hehe!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope I could inspire you in one way or another.
I'm stopping by today to share a few cards I've made with some of the dies from a brand new Spellbinders collection, designed by Vicki Papaioannou! The collection is called Birdhouses Through the Seasons and I absolutely adore every single set! I only have two of the die sets at the moment (there's 5 in total plus a sentiment stamp set), but I need to get my hands on all of them for sure. They work on their own but they are designed in a very clever way to all work with each other. See for yourself!
I have a process video for you at the end of this post, so I'll just leave you with photos here. If you're interested in how these came together, what supplies I've used, please stop by my You Tube channel!
On the next card, I used an additional two die sets:
That's it for today! I hope you love this collection as much as I do and I could inspire you in one way or another! Check out Vicki's You Tube channel too, she explains these dies in detail and shows lots and lots of samples with them. Super inspiring!
It's that time again! The Spellbinders May Club Kits are here!
I will not go into step by step tutorials here, since I made process videos for all of today's projects - I'll just attach some photos! I'll link the videos down below, after each set of cards. You can also subscribe to my YouTube Channel and press the bell icon so you never miss a new video! You'll find all the supplies I've used linked in the description boxes of the videos.
As a reminder, Spellbinders have several monthly kits, which are really great! You can subscribe to:
You can find all necessary information about these kits here.
Without further ado, here are my projects with the May Large Die Kit!
You'll find the process video for these cards here:
I only have one card with the Small Die Kit this month:
You'll find the process video for this card here:
I do have a bonus card that I did later, but I wasn't able to create a video for this. I've made it with the beautiful Large Die Kit:
Here I stitched the panel in white and I stitched the sentiment as well. Going in I knew this might not turn out well, because the font isn't ideal for hand stitching, but I wanted to try anyway. My friend was able to read it, I don't think I would be if I didn't know what it says. But I wanted to share anyway, maybe you have sentiments that are better suited for hand stitching and this gives you an idea?
You know how much I love colors, so as much as I wanted to make a white card, I just couldn't hehe! So I created a colorful background using the Color Block Slices Die Set. Which by the way is back in stock now, so hurry if you don't want to miss out! It's such a versatile set that you can use to create all kinds of fun backgrounds with!
I used an A2 size white card stock, then centered the first die cut on it and lined up the rest left and right to create this partial sunburst pattern. It's probably a shame I covered it all up :D
Then I finished off the card with a few enamel dots in coordinating colors for more dimension and pops of color!
That's it for today guys! I hope you love this month's die kits as much as I do!
I also hope I could inspire you in some small way!
