Time for Fun

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Papercrafts Time Flies and Spellbinders
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.

I always loves your gorgeous work.

    I love time theme cards and vintage– this is a great combination. Mrs B is right it would easily transform into a his or hers card. Can’t wait to see your new Spellbinders adventures. Merry Christmas.ReplyCancel
