Angel of Peace ...

Hi everyone! Today, I have a recycled project using a dollar store Christmas card! I cut the card apart and altered it a bit to make my own handmade card using Spellbinders® Paper Arts Angel of Peace, and A2 Scalloped Borders One. I still have other cards from the box to play with, so I will be making more projects from it!

With Love...

Hi everyone! Today, I have a pretty lacy box for you using the Garden Party die template from the Heart & Home Collection from Spellbinders Paper Arts. This series has 26 different templates that are perfect for fun projects like my box. I love that you can create something for any occasion using elements from this line! 

Simply cut four of the sides, one of the bottom piece, then glue the tabs together, and you have the start of a fabulous gift! I used double-sided patterned paper, and then tied the flaps together with silk ribbon for a taller box. I filled it with yummy mint candies and added a sentiment tag using the Oval Floral die. A perfect treat for that special someone!

Happy Holidays...

Hi everyone! Today, I am showcasing a pretty paper pad from Graphic 45 called Time to Flourish, and it has lovely floral sheets inside, and you can purchase it at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. I used the December sheet with poinsettias as my focal point, and embellished using Spellbinders Victorian Fan as a medallion. I simply cut two from gold mirror cardstock and layered them under the image. Add a silky bow and a sentiment and the card is ready for Christmas giving! Supplies are listed below!

Sculpt your surfaces with Spellbinders® 3D M-Bossabilities™ folders. Take your embossing beyond to get a more realistic impression with their 3D folders!

Instructions on how to make your own embossed paper:
1. Lay four or five sheets of Kleenex tissue inside of your chosen 3D Embossing folder. I am using Labels 34 Medallion! The more sheets you use, the thicker the paper will be. 
2. Spray Memento LuLu Lavender Fireworks ink all over the tissue surface as shown. The ink washes off when you are finished.
3. Spray Memento Summer Sky Fireworks ink in various spots on the tissue surface as shown. 
4. Close the lid onto the folder and emboss using the Raspberry and Pink plates in your Grand Calibur®. Leave the tissue inside the folder, place a few books on top, and allow it to dry.
 5. Remove the paper from the embossing folder once dry, then trim to fit your card. Decorate as desired.

Thankful for You...

Hi everyone! I have another sweet card using a die template from Spellbinders® Paper Arts Laced with Love called Blooming Collection. This pretty set has four dies: a filigree square, an embossed circle and two filigree corners that can be use in many different ways. 

For my card, I cut and embossed the circle, then cut/embossed four of the corner pieces and set them inside the circle. It became a lovely filigreed medallion for my sentiment. Add a floral background, silk ribbon and pearls and you have a lovely card to give!

Special Day...

Hi everyone! Today, I have a pretty card that could be used for many occasions using Spellbinders Paper Arts® Laced with Love: Hearts A Flutter. This die template cuts easily and can be stenciled or left plain. It makes a striking contrast against a dark background and the tiny birds are so sweet!

For my card, I did some stenciling with ink and a sponge dauber while the die cut was still in the die, and used it as my focal point. I added some teal ink on top of a light blue cardstock to get my sky, and then stamped a sentiment. Quick and easy, yet beautiful!

Just for You...

Hi everyone! I have another card for you using Spellbinders® Paper Arts newest little machine called the Sapphire Mini Die Cutting Machine, that is only available at JoAnn's. The machine cuts and embosses dies up to 2.25" wide, is affordable and portable. Spellbinders® Sapphire die templates allow you to cut, emboss and stencil shapes to make beautiful handmade embellishments for cards, crafts and more. They have a great price, starting at $4.99,  that allows you to experiment with paper crafting without making a big commitment. 
 
Today, my card uses Sapphire Dies: Hearts and Flowers and I, once again, used the negative space from cutting to create it. Simply lay the die templates on a patterned paper panel, cut and emboss using your machine. Remove the die cuts for another card and glue to a panel then decorate as shown.
