Hydrangea Wreath Card | Spellbinders

Hydrangea Wreath Card, Spellbinders, Nature's Botanical Garden Collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn, how to, hand made card, Stamps, stamping, die cutting, card making, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, ink blending

Hello, my friends!

Today I have a card for you featuring some of my favorite flowers. I absolutely love Hydrangeas, especially the colored ones. This card features the HYDRANGEA ETCHED DIES from the Nature's Botanical Garden Collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn.

CARD RECIPE
 
WREATH:
  • Die-cut the leaves using the HYDRANGEA ETCHED DIES
  • Ink blend the leaves, adding extra shading to the center with a detailed brush.
  • Gently bend the leaves at the center.
  • Using Circle Dies, die cut a frame to adhere the leaves to, covering it completely with the leaves.

FLOWERS:
  •  Die-cut the flowers using the HYDRANGEA ETCHED DIES. For this project, I used the 2 smaller flower bases to glue the flowers to.
  • Add color to the die cuts by ink blending colors of your choice. For the centers, add additional ink using a detail blending brush. Color the backgrounds of the flowers in the same color as the hydrangeas.
  • To create dimension, lay each flower on a foam pad and press the center with a ball stylus or tool small enough to press in the center. 
  • Glue flowers onto the flower bases and allow them to completely dry.
  • Once dry, add a drop of glue to each center, place a pearl into the wet glue, and let it dry.
SENTIMENT:
  • I had previously foiled this sentiment and saved it from a previous project. Unfortunately, it is no longer available, but it can easily be substituted with any other foiled sentiment or die.
  • Use Polished Brass Glimmer Foil along with the Hot Foil System to create the sentiment
ASSEMBLY:
  • On a square card base (this one measures 5 inches), glue the leaves layer.
  • Add foam to the back of the sentiment strip and center it in the wreath.
  • Glue the hydrangea bunches in place covering up the sentiment strip ends, and use foam for added height.

I hope you enjoyed today’s Hydrangea Wreath Card tutorial. A creation as special as this deserves to be gifted to someone who will truly appreciate the craftsmanship and love put into it.

In addition to the color palette used on this card, I opted for shade-free flowers and took a unique approach to snipping and stitching the buttercup layout.

Floral Frenzy Cards | Spellbinders | Floral Reflection Collection

#Spellbinders,#neverstopmaking,Floral Reflection Collection,Floral Frenzy Cards,Spellbinders,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, 3d embossing folder

Hello friends! 

There is a gorgeous new collection from Spellbinders available now and if you love florals this one is calling your name. The Floral Refection Collection is so pretty and so versatile as I will show you with my card examples today.

CARD RECIPE


First of all, let's talk about this new 3D embossing folder! Just look at the gorgeous floral detail. Alone as a background it is beautiful. For this birthday card, I paired it with a vellum heart from the new Essential Heart Etched Die set with the Floral Reflection Etched Dies. To make this a birthday card I just added the sentiment from the Floral Reflection Sentiment set, but honestly, it could be used for any occasion.


#Spellbinders,#neverstopmaking,Floral Reflection Collection,Floral Frenzy Cards,Spellbinders,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, 3d embossing folder

Here is another example. This time the sentiment is a bit vague but I turned it into a wedding card just by adding a little piece of tule behind the die-cut heart.

#Spellbinders,#neverstopmaking,Floral Reflection Collection,Floral Frenzy Cards,Spellbinders,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, 3d embossing folder

Again I used the flowers from the Floral Reflection Etched Dies without the base stems and created a loose arrangement along the edge of the heart that I then added to the 3D Flower Frenzy Embossed Background.

This final card could be used for any occasion. To make the embossed areas pop even more I used white pigment ink over the raised areas. I then die cut the Floral Reflection Etched dies from white cardstock and finished just the centers of the flowers to reduce some layers.

#Spellbinders,#neverstopmaking,Floral Reflection Collection,Floral Frenzy Cards,Spellbinders,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, 3d embossing folder

To the center, I added a sentiment from the Floral Reflection Stamp set that I die cut with a coordinating die.

I hope these simple yet beautiful cards inspired you. This Floral Reflection Collection release is timeless and could be very useful for all-year-round cardmaking.

Gnome for Christmas Cards | Spellbinders

GNOME TREE DIES, HOLLY JOLLY,  ARGYLE SOCKS EMBOSSING FOLDER,Gnome for Christmas, Spellbinders,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

Happy Sunday Friends!

Today it's all about my Gnomies 😉 These darling gnomes are the latest release from Spellbinders and are part of the Gnome for Christmas Collection.

CARD RECIPE #1
  • To begin I die-cut the Gnomes from the Gnome Tree Dies out of white cardstock and then used Copics to color each piece. 
  • On the background layer, I then glued each piece back. To add a little extra dimension, I added another layer behind each of the hats and beards. 
  • For fun, I added some white gel pen highlights.

  • On the inside, I also foiled the "from all of us" sentiment.

CARD RECIPE #2
  • For this next card, I die-cut all the pieces from the Holly Jolly Gnome Dies using white cardstock that I then colored in with Copic Markers.
  • I then glued and pieced the gnome, ornament, and bow together.

  • Next, I glued the base of the bow to the card front. Under the knot of the bow, I stacked a couple of foam dots and then placed the loop of the ornament around them, and then glued the knot of the bow in place. This secures and creates the swing mechanism for the gnome to swing back and forth.

  • For added details, I used a white gel pen to add highlights and then added some gem stickers to the top of the ornament.
