Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Sentiments 4 and Grateful Lattice
Good morning friends!  Die cut words are everywhere so today, I decided to put some I have in my stash to use!  I absolutely love them and they make for a quick card – no stamping this time around.  The set I’m using is Spellbinders Sentiments 4.  I imagine these would be fabulous on a little set of cards you send to someone and they could attach which ever words were appropriate for the occasion.  Just daydreaming out loud :-)

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Sentiments Four and Grateful Lattice

I used Spellbinders Grateful Lattice to create the background for the card.  Once cut, I flipped the die over to reveal the paper side and pulled the diecut out of the die.  The I placed a pop dot onto each of the normally thrown away pieces while still in the die and laid down a panel of paper on top of the sticky pop dots.   This allowed me to pull all the discards out of the die at one time adhered to a panel of paper – spaced perfectly!   I added lace, a flower and the jewels and bow to finish the design off!!

By the way, I’ve received a couple of questions about when the dies I’m using will be available.  So on each of the items, if you click through to the product, the shipping dates are listed with each product!  Hope that helps you all :-)

    You are beyond creative! Thanks for walking us through the amazing way you used the lattice. Got to try that.ReplyCancel

  • Maria RodriguezSeptember 19, 2014 - 9:33 am

    Lovely, lovely card. When I first saw the picture I immediately thought: “What patience and precision gluing all of those little pieces so perfectly!!!!!” But then, I read how you did it and I think it’s the most clever, amazing, incredible way to use this die!!! This is a wonderful way to use all the little pieces that, like you said, would land in the trash and end up with a gorgeous, unique card.
    Thank you so much for sharing. :)ReplyCancel

  • Claire HorvathSeptember 19, 2014 - 10:03 am

    Love, love, love the card! OMG I would never have thought of doing that—using the cutouts like that. What a wonderful idea. You give me such inspiration!ReplyCancel

  • MaryannSeptember 19, 2014 - 10:03 am

    WAUW what an awesome card here again Becca. You always make the best of everything, and I absolutely love this one here.
    And thanks so much for the great tips about adding the pop dots BEFORE removing it from the die. I have been trying to assemble these on a card once, but took them one by one, and that´s NOT a good way of doing, and I admit, I never even thought of this back then, but now I´m going to try again and do it the right way he he
    Hope everyone here is having a wonderful week-end now.ReplyCancel

  • margaret driscoll UKSeptember 19, 2014 - 10:20 am

    Hello Becca
    I often think when I throw pieces away what I should be doing with them!
    Thank you for some more inspiration and another tip!
    As for sentiments everywhere….. I would really like some Numerals for card fronts…… for my Grand Children especially…… they love everyone to know how old they are ! But most are too small!
    Take care
    Love MargReplyCancel

  • Mary Jo StewartSeptember 19, 2014 - 11:56 am

    I am so blessed with each card design that you create and post. You do such wonderful layouts. I am curious though as to how you make cush beautiful bows, double and triple with the long tails. could you do a tutorial on those? They are darn near perfect!
