Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Diagonal Chevron and Labels 42 Decorative Accents
Hi there friends!  As always, I’m working on stuff in the background but took a moment have a look at what’s new in my stash.  I  was so inspired by this Wordsworth sentiment I’ve had on hand and it reminded me of the new Spellbinders Diagonal Chevron I had laying on the table.  It’s very contemporary but in cardmaking I feel strongly that there are no rules – go where ever your heart takes you!  I thought that this template was a great opportunity to show some design paper so I cut the die template, flipped it over, placed Glossy Accents on the the back of the pieces that would normally fall out but then laid a piece of gold paper on top and let it dry.  Once dry, I took off the die template then removed the diecut and the leftover pieces stayed glued to the gold paper.  The small sentiment is popped up on Spellbinders Labels 42 – Decorative Accents and Spellbinders Classic Squares LG.

See my tiny bows?  Yep, I didn’t want to cover up too much of that pretty background :-)  I embellished the bottom of the card with Spellbinders Corners and Accents One.

Here’s how I made it – step by step:

  1. Create a card base with cream card stock that measures 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″.  (Card base is made with two pieces of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″‘ paper scored and glued as in this Hinge Video.)
  2. With print paper, cut a panel 5″ x 6-7/8″ and mat it with a gold panel cut to 5-1/8″ x 7″.  Adhere with print paper on top.
  3. With cream paper cut emboss outside border from Diagonal Chevron and mat it with a gold panel cut to 4-3/8″ x 5-5/8″.  Adhere to previous layer with foam tape.
  4. With floral design paper cut/emboss Diagonal Chevron, flip die template over so back is face up and place Glossy Accents on the fall out die pieces.  Cover with a gold panel cut to 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ pull off main die cut and fall out pieces should remain glued down to gold paper. Adhere to previous layer with foam tape.
  5. Wrap ribbon and lace vertically on right side of card, taping on back.  Adhere grouping to card base.
  6. Cut/emboss Labels 42 – Decorative Accents and adhere to upper left corner using foam tape.
  7. Stamp sentiment on cream paper then cut/emboss with Classic Squares LG #4, rim with gold Krylon pen.  Adhere square directly to Labels 42 – Decorative Accents
  8. Cut/emboss Corners and Accents One and adhere to bottom of card
  9. Attach bow, add Pearls.

I’m listening to a circa 2008 Oprah rerun and they are talking about ‘schlumpadinkas’ (google it).  Oh emmm geee – that’s me, it’s just a schlumpadinka day – it’s raining and I’m sure sitting here in my sweats!  Come on sun, time for me to get outside and walk :-)

Friendship Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design Always Be My Friend and Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance
Greetings friends!  Mercy, this has been a week that has kept the mailman on his toes.  I’m not complaining; I love it when I get happy mail and oh my, has it ever been happy.  Of course you’ll get to see everything, including new Spellbinders, as I get them made up into projects.   One of the sets that showed up was this new red mounted rubber friendship set from Quietfire Design.  I don’t know if you remember last month I  used a beautiful friendship saying One cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed – this one is just as lovely.  I have all sorts of friendships stamps but few that say what I’m feeling is in such a special way.  This one is called Always Be My Friend.

So yes, I’m sporting shiny new Spellbinders die templates :-)  This romantic combination of Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance, Spellbinders Labels Thirty Nine and Spellbinders Corners and Accents One fit perfectly with the sentiment in more ways than one!

Here’s how I made it – step by step:

  1. Create a card base with cream card stock that measures 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″.  (Card bases is made with two pieces of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″‘ paper scored and glued as in this Hinge Video.)  Smudge all card edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.
  2. With polka dot paper, cut a panel 5″ x 6-7/8″ and mat it with a dark brown panel cut to 5-1/8″ x 7″.  Adhere with polka dot on top.
  3. Wrap ribbon and lace vertically on left side of card, taping on back.  Adhere grouping to card base.
  4. Cut/emboss Fleur de Elegance with cream cardstock – ink emboss through opening with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.
  5. Cut/emboss Labels Thirty Nine with design paper, rim with Krylon Pen and adhere to card with double foam tape.

An Extra Grand Happy Holiday

Christmas Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Extra Grand Holiday Sentiments and Spellbinders Heirloom Legacy
Good morning friends!  Today is the last day of new releases from JustRite Papercraft and today we’re showing Extra Grand Holiday Sentiments a series of bold saluations for the holidays along with an add-on SVG set for those who have digital machines.  As you might imagine today I’m sharing a Christmas card and I decided to go the traditional way.  I used Spellbinders 5 x 7 Heirloom Legacy but I trimmed the ends off this time  so that it looks like a different die (visual at the end of this post).    Inside the oval of the Heirloom Legacy piece I added the Spellbinders Belgian Lace die.  Last of all I added the oval laurel from the Spellbinders In’spire Silhouette set.

Once I had everything set, I cut my sentiment from the Extra Grand Holiday Sentiments Digital Cut File Download for CR-02133 which comes with a cut set and a matting layer.  Since I already had rimmed other elements in gold, I rimmed the sentiment in gold as well then adhered in the center of the laurel.
