Hi there friends. I’m elbow deep in new Spellbinders Die Templates :-) Swoon! We get to play around with all the new stuff for a bit before they are released and I just have to say that you will love, love, love what’s coming. January 6th will kick off the new previews; it’s not that far away so mark your calendar and be sure to come and see what I’ve been working on. The other designers will have lovely eye candy as well! In the meantime, I have a simple card to share today featuring a new collage background stamp called Time Flies Cling Background from JustRite Papercraft. I wanted a tone on tone look so I stamped the collage with brown chalk ink then added shading with brown chalk and dark grey chalk in the shadows.
The layer of texture is made using the debossed side of Spellbinders Twisted Hearts, the top is embellished with Spellbinders Flourish Trim and three smallish flowers added to the bow using Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms.
Here’s your Step By Step Recap of die cuts and layers, from the bottom up: Start out with a Card Base 7-1/2″ tall by 5-1/2″ wide (or see how to make that size with the Hinge Technique HERE), foam tape, brown matting layer cut to 7″ x 5-1/8″, cream layer embossed with the Twisted Heart embossing folder and cut to 6-7/8″ x 5″, foam tape, brown matting layer cut to 5-5/8″ x 4-3/8″, stamped layer cut to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. Tip – cut everything first, then stack. Position ribbon, and bow on correct layer, after everything is situated, then glue!
