Spellbinders Stronger Than Tutorial

Hello friends, it is time to share another tutorial for Spellbinders, using some of their fabulous Die and also a stamp set from the Bible Journaling sets by Licensed Designer Joanne Fink.


Not only can they be used for Bible Journaling, or journaling, they are also great for cards -  - if you haven't checked them out already - you can see them HERE.

1. Stamp the sign image using Tuxedo Black Ink.
2. Stamp the sentiments inside the sign using Rhubarb Stalk ink.
3. Colour the image using Chameleon Art Pens.
4. Cut/emboss the image using the Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies #5 #6 (#1 being the smallest)
5. Use the Die as a Stencil sponging the inside using Summer Sky ink.

6. Using the cutting frame of the Card Creator Emmeline Treillage Etched Dies Venise Lace, cut two using green/white striped card stock.
7. Fold the top 1.5cm of one Emmeline Treillage forward
8. Add adhesive to the folded forward section and layer the second Emmeline Treillage onto the first to form card base - making sure to line up the patterned edges.

9. Cut/emboss one cloud from the Rise 'n Shine Etched Dies using white card stock.
10. Lightly sponge around the edges using grey ink.
11. Cut the cloud an half, adhering each portion to the edges of the card front.
12. Pop the card front up onto the card base using 3D Foam Squares.
13. Add 'faux' Enamel Dots using the Pico Embellisher in Wedding Dress - allow to dry.

Poinettia Christmas

Hello friends, it is a Public Holiday here - apparently not all of Australia but definitely the Nations Capital - Canberra for those of you who don't know!!  I am continuing on with the run of creating Christmas Cards - and being conscious of  how many Christmas Cards need to be posted and therefore the bulk needs to be kept to a minimum - a challenge for those of us who like layer upon layer! 


I have stamped the image from the Spellbinders Nativity Holiday 2017 by Stephanie Low Stamp & Die Set  repeatedly onto white card stock using Imagine Memento ink in Memento Black.  The background has then been sponged using Imagine Memento Ink in Bamboo Leaves and Rhubarb Stalk, using a Sponge Dauber to blend the inks together.

Next stamp cleaner has been spritzed onto the inked card front - don't you love the effect that it has - gently dab with  tissue to remove excess.  The Poinsettia's have then been coloured using Chameleon Pens.  


 The sentiment from the Nativity Holiday 2017 by Stephanie Low Stamp & Die Set has been stamped using Tuxedo Black Ink, trimmed, a dove tail added and adhered to the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: E-Z Adhesive Runner.    The card front has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine.  This has been popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Foam Tape.

A Girl Can Never Have too Many Shoes

Hello friends, I have enjoyed a very quiet Saturday, resting (well trying to rest wink:wink) as I try and recouperate from the flu that has been going around. I am sharing a card created using Graphic 45 Couture Collection - I have had this image sitting in my stash, along with quite a few others from this  for quite some time but now is the time to get it 'happening!'


The card front has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine.  This has been popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Foam Tape.


The image has been layered onto slightly larger black matting and popped up at an angle onto the card front also using Crafty Foam Tape. Co-ordinating Chipboard embellishments have been added.

Co-ordinating Chipboard embellishments have also been added to the top of the card front.  The sentiment has been cut from the patterned paper and trimmed, a dve tail cut at the right end and layered onto slightly larger black card stock.  This has been popped up across the image using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Foam Tape. 

Self Adhesive Paper lace has been adhered under the sentiment and Want2Scrap™ White Pearls have been added along the paper lace

Christmas Wreath - with Love

Hello friends, I seem to be on a run of creating Christmas Cards - but that has to be good - right!? I wanted to try a little something different with this set. I am also conscious of how many Christmas Cards need to be posted and therefore the bulk needs to be kept to a minimum - a challenge for those of us who like layer upon layer! 


I have stamped the image from the Spellbinders Open Me Holiday 2017 by Stephanie Low Stamp & Die Set repeatedly onto white card stock using Imagine Memento ink in Memento Black.  The background has then been sponged using Imagine Memento Ink in Bamboo Leaves and Rhubarb Stalk, using a Sponge Dauber to blend the inks together and leaving the inside of the wreathes uninked, ready for a sentiment.  

Next stamp cleaner has been spritzed onto the inked card front - don't you love the effect that it has - gently dab with  tissue to remove excess.  The wreaths have then been coloured using Chameleon Pens.  


The sentiment is also from the Open Me Holiday 2017 by Stephanie Low Stamp & Die Set  and has been stamped in the centre of the wreaths using Rhubarb Stalk ink.  The second sentiment from the Nativity Holiday 2017 by Stephanie Low Stamp & Die Set has been stamped using Tuxedo Black Ink, trimmed and layered onto slightly larger gold card stock and adhered to the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: E-Z Adhesive Runner.  An edge strip of patterned paper has been added and the card front adhered to a pre-cut card base.
