Spellbinders - Holiday Die D-Lites Take 2

Hello friends! I am back with Take 2 of Spellbinders newest Holiday D-Lites collection and I have created a card using DIE D-LITES REINDEER ETCHED DIES and DIE D-LITES SNOWFLAKES ETCHED DIES 2018 HOLIDAY collection.

Let me show you the card, I created... I wanted to stick to traditional Christmas colors and make the reindeer the focal point.
To make this I took a white card stock panel and drew the sunburst using a ruler and a pencil. I then masked and inked them in Red Distress inks. I die cut the reindeer, did some inking on the edges to give some dimension and depth. I then layered the pieces to build the reindeer. Splattered some water on inked panel. I also added die cut snowflakes and finished the card with a sentiment.

These are the products, I used Die D-Lites Snowflakes. Die D-lite Reindeer and sentiment from CAS-ual Friday's Stamps ...

Spellbinders - Holiday Die D-Lites !

Hello friends! I am back with more Spellbinders goodness :) We all love Holidays season and now is the perfect time to build up your holiday greeting collection. Thank you Spellbinders for sending these goodies to help me kick start my holiday cards. Today I have the newest Holiday D-Lites collection to showcase and I have created a couple of cards using DIE D-LITES SNOWFLAKES ETCHED DIES 2018 HOLIDAY collection.

Let me show you the cards, I created... I wanted my snowflakes to shine so I die cut these using silver glitter card stock. For my first card I kept the tones neutral to make the snowflakes the star of the card. 
To make this I took a grey card stock panel and embossed it with snowflakes. twice along the opposite edges. I also die cut some flourish using the Spellbinders Large Die of the month - Aug 2018 in white card stock. I then arranged it on white base as seen. I added some pearls for embellishment and silver heat embossed sentiment to finish my card. I also scored lines on card base for the lower edge.

My second card is more on the bright side. Making glitter paper the star.
To make this I took three colors of glitter paper and cut out stripes of varying thickness from each. I then adhered them on a panel diagonally. Once this was done, I embossed the snowflake. Here is the fun trick... I embossed and then place the silver die cut snowflakes in the embossed areas to give an inlaid look without actually inlaying it. In laid die cutting would have been really time taking for this one :D To finish I added this panel over a sliver strip at the base. Stamped the sentiment on vellum, added silver sequins to finish the card.

These are the products, I used Die D-Lites Snowflakes. Large Die of the month club kit - Aug 2018 and sentiment from CAS-ual Friday's Stamps ...

Spellbinders September 2018 Card Kit of the month - Take 2

Hello friends! I am back with more Spellbinders goodness. Today I have a few more cards from their latest club kit "September 2018 Card Kit of the Month"you can find all the details about this fabulous club kit HERE

This kit comes with loads of products that you can combine to create quick, fun and fantastic cards. This kit includes card stock, 6x6 Paper pad, Epoxy stickers, Puffy foil stickers, Dies, Stamp set, Die cut shapes and a lot of embellishments. I did a post earlier HERE and today I am back with Take 2.

Let me show you what I made. This time I wanted to create a card using the stamp set included in the kit :)

To make this card, I did some stamping and my favorite water coloring to build the under water scene :) The water colors used are Gansai Tambi :)

Here, is an example of a card where I was inspired by the patterned paper for the colors.
I used the patterned paper and cut out the car, starfish using the dies and the card stock included in the kit. I then simply arranged it on the card along with embellishments like silver thread, foiled sticker and epoxy sticker.

Lastly, I made a summery card. I had to coz summer is about to end ;)
For this card, I cut out the scallop edge from patterned paper. I picked two Popsicle die cut shapes. On the base panel I did some ink smooshing to match the colors of the Popsicle. I then arranged it along with epoxy star stickers and foiled stickers. Fun and easy!

I had so much fun. I think this is an amazing kit that gives you a lot of possibilities.

Hope you enjoyed my creations. You can find all the details HERE
