Hi everyone, today I’m showing you my guest design project for Spellbinders! I was sent some fun goodies to play with and this is what I came up with: I created two cards mixing two stamp and die sets and some other wonderful Spellbinders supplies.
So, let’s get started!
For my first card I started with creating my smallest rectangle panel from some Strathmore “Toned Tan“ paper. On this panel I stamped the dots from the Spelbinders “Shake it Up“ stamp and die set, using Archival Ink in the colour “Coffee“ and I used first and second generation stamping, especially on the top right hand corner.
Over these dots I stamped one of the sentiments from the Spellbinders “Twisted“ stamp and die set, using Versafine “Onyx Black“ ink and my MISTI.
Now that this panel is ready I’m going to work on the knots: for this I used some Spellbinders Platinum “Adhesive Sheets“ and some Spellbinders Platinum “Poster Board“ (in the gold colour that comes in the pack).
I adhered some of the gold poster board on an adhesive sheet and then die cut the knot design three times from that. This way it’s really easy to adhere the die cut knots to the panel that I created before and this poster board also die cuts beautifully!
To finish this card I created a slightly larger panel from some light blue card stock and I adhered the two panels together using liquid glue and then I adhered these combined panels to a crème coloured linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape!
For my second card I used the same colour palette and the same stamp and die sets as on the first card: I again started with creating the smallest panel and then I stamped only one part of the stamp that I used on the first card (from the Spellbinders “Twisted“ stamp set) and ended with one of the sentiments from the other stamp set (Spellbinders “Shake it Up“). I draw in the additional comma with a black Copic MultiLiner (0.3).
Then I die cut the largest (this fun stamp and die set comes with two sizes of shapes for the bottle images) shape for the bottle image in the area that I had left above the sentiment and next stamped the dots from the Shake it Up set again, but this time with the black ink and only twice.
Now that my base is ready I’m going to work on the little bottle images: for this I stamped the bottle twice on some Strathmore “Bristol Smooth Surface“ paper using the same black ink as before and I clear heat embossed afterwards (this way the lines stay crisp and black no matter how much water I ad). The only thing I did different is to cover up the little faces that are incorporated in the bottle stamp! So, I masked of the faces after inking up the stamp, using a small piece of Post It note and when the colouring was done I draw back in the faces with the same Copic MultiLiner that I used before.
But first I coloured the bottles with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers and my Pentel Aquabrush. I used the following colours: "Light Blue", "Light Gray" and "Brick Beige". When the colouring was done and dry I draw back in the little faces, I adhered the pieces to the Spellbinders Adhesive Sheet that I used before and then die cut the bottles using the small bottle die from this stamp set.
Now I can put my card together. I created a slightly larger panel from the same light blue card stock that I used before on the other card and this I adhered to a crème coloured linen textured card base using liquid glue. Then I adhered the tan coloured panel with the sentiment on top using one millimetre thick foam tape and finally adhered the bottles in the openings using it’s adhesive back!
And that’s it for today’s fun set of cards! I wish you a creative day!
Thank you Spellbinders for having me as a guest designer again!
