Spellbinders Right Words By Becca Feeken

My post today showcases three set of dies from the Right Words by Becca Feeken collections release by Spellbinders. I love the intricate lacy style of Becca’s dies.

Hello everyone!

Here are the cards I have created:

First card

For my first card today, I am using ThankYou for Your Kindness Etched Dies is from The Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken.

Thank you for your kindness die set

I created a mini slimline which measures 3 and a half inches tall and 6 and a half inches wide.

Started off by die-cutting the lattice design with dark purple card-stock and silver matte card-stock twice so I could fill my card front with these side by side. Adhered these with liquid glue on a white card-base.

This set contains a word die that says “kindness” in a beautiful font which also has a shadow layer. I created a focal point with the word die cut. Outline with the matte silver, the inside of the font with patterned paper and the shadow layer with dark purple card-stock.

I also used Hemstitch rectangle die to cut a rectangle behind the word kindness and stamped “so grateful for your “ on a strip to complete the sentiment.

This finished my card. No extra embellishments for this card.

Second Card

My second card features the You’re Amazing Etched Dies from The Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken.

This card measures 3 and a half by 6 and a half inches as well.

I cut just the one side of a piece of pattern paper with the lacy die but without the outline so it doesn’t have a cut around the design. Then I cut another one with with gold card-stock and layered from behind slightly offsetting so a little bit of gold would show through.

Adding a matching silk ribbon with a bow on the side on the other side balanced the composition. I then added another layer of gold card-stock slightly bigger than the pattern paper behind it.

I had learnt how to make a perfect bow a while back. Now was the time to put that to use. Look how perfect is this bow.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 71531385-d18b-48f5-9343-38762a51e7ec.png

This die set contains the “You are Amazing” word. Look at the font. I cut this with gold card-stock and layered a few white die-cuts behind it for thickness. The die cut ovals are made using the Hemstitch Oval dies from Spellbinders.

Third Card

My third card features My Sweet Friend Etched Dies is from The Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken

I wanted to create a baby girl card with this die set. This one here is a 5 by 7 inches card with a lot of sparkle.

For the background, I used Eyelet lace frame etched dies to crate this beautiful lacy panel in pink which is layered with rose gold glitter card-stock behind it so you can see the sparkling glitter through the cutouts.

The sentiment consists of the word “Sweet” which is cut with purple card-stock offset with rose gold glitter card-stock and the “Baby Girl” cut on the rectangle pattern paper piece. I also added a small piece of rose gold card-stock behind the cut out.

For extra dimension I adhered the rectangle piece with foam tape. As an embellishment I added pink iridescent jewels in the center of each flowers of the lace pattern. This card already is sparkly enough but the jewels add the finishing touch. Here’s a closeup of the card.

Hope I was able to inspire you.

Spellbinders’ Just Wanted To Say Collection

Today I am here with a bunch of cards featuring the latest release, the Just Wanted To Say Collection by Spellbinders. Settle yourselves as this is going to be a long post.

Hello everyone!

My first set of cards feature the Stitched Hi Etched Dies from the Just Wanted to Say Collection.

Stitched “Hi” Cards

Here is what I created with this die:

I started by die-cutting the “Hi” with white and embroidered it using the gold embroidery thread. I love the look of gold on white. The embroidered layer was then adhered onto the shadow layer using foam tape for dimension.

For the background, I picked one of the gel prints I created a while back and used the Candlewick Rectangles Etched Dies to die cut it. I didn’t need to do anything else with the background as it has a lot of texture already.

I used the Mini Blooms and Springs Etched Dies to cut out some of these cute little flowers in a peachy-pink shade. This color complemented my background color so well. You can see that I’ve created some clusters of flowers around the “Hi” for decoration. I added some gold pearls in the middle of the flowers.

Now my card is done.

Adding a Masculine Twist

I created another one thinking I should give it a little bit of masculine vibe. Let me know what you think.

Here I created this with black die-cut “Hi”. I embroidered this one with gold as well. Then I added it with foam tape on the shadow layer cut with gold card-stock.

Remember the gel print I used in the first card? It makes a comeback here after I gave it a trim with the paper trimmer, choosing not use any more die for a simpler look.

Then I stamped and embossed one of the sentiment from Just Wanted to Say Clear Stamp Set on a black card-stock with gold to match my black and gold “Hi”. I chose to place it on the bottom-left of the “Hi”.

Here are the two cards side by side:

Which one is your favorite?

My next card features the Wreath Builder Etched Dies, also from the Just Wanted to Say Collection.

Wreath Builder Etched Dies is part of the Just Wanted to Say Collection

The Wreath Card

A Papyrus card I saw at my local pharmacy inspired the color combination of this card. Here is my inspiration photo. Check out the color palette which I really liked.

I used the Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies from Spellbinders to cut the background panel. I added a layer of gold glitter card stock behind it. If you look closely, you can see a little gold peeking through the holes of the die cut.

I then die-cut the elements of my wreath in the colors that match my inspiration color palette.

For the focal point of the card, I arranged the leaves and flowers in a wreath shape on the front. Some were added with liquid glue and some were propped up with tiny pieces of foam tape.

You can find this sentiment in the Stitched Alphabet Descriptors Sentiments Clear Stamp Set. I stamped and embossed this sentiment on a navy blue strip of card-stock. The white embossed sentiment on navy makes for a striking combination, I think.

Well, my wreath card is ready.

My next set of cards are going to feature Little Chickadee Etched Dies is from the Just Wanted to Say Collection.

This die is just so cute that I had to create a bunch of cards with this one.

Little Chickadee Cards

I started by die-cutting a bunch of little pieces of these birds in very bright red/blue/green/orange and teal color. Then I spent quite a while adding each layers of the bird. This was definitely time consuming to create this many birds but look how cute these look! It was totally worth the time and effort spent creating them.

Six Chickadee Friends

Here’s my first one:

I picked this piece of gel print that I created a while ago. It was cut into 3 and 3 quarters inches by 5 inches. I added a mat of the same green card-stock I used on the birds. Both of the background layers would still leave a white border around it.

I then arranged 6 birds on the front of a panel so that the birds are facing different directions. Doing this makes it look like I used different dies to create these birds rather than just one.

For the sentiment, I used the Just Wanted to Say Clear Stamp Set to stamp and emboss two strips that read: “Just wanted to say… I’m glad we’re friends.”

Chickadee on a Branch

Here’s another one I made with the same die set:

For this one, I used an embossed white background matted with the teal card-stock again leaving a white border around it. As an accent, I added a strip of the gel print along the bottom where I planned on adding the sentiment strip.

I used the two stems cut using the Wreath Builder Etched Dies, part of the Just Wanted to Say Collection, to make it look like a branch. Lastly, I added one bird on the branch with some foam tape.

I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set which reads “You are in my thoughts”. It was added right above the gel print strip, completing the card.

Chickadee Happy Birthday Card

Here’s the third card I created with the same bird die and this one is my favorite of the three.

For the background of this card I again used the embossed white background matted with teal card-stock.

I added a small leftover rectangle piece of the gel-print in the left middle of the embossed background for the bird to sit on it. Then I added the bird with foam tape for dimension.

The “Have a wonderful Birthday” is stamped and embossed towards the bottom of the rectangle gel print piece to complete the card.

Here are three cards side by side for you to compare:

Which one do you like the best?

I am hoping I didn’t bore you with this long post. If I was able to inspire you with my creations feel free to leave a comment and share my post with your fellow crafters.

Spellbinders’ Birthday Celebration Collection

Spellbinders is excited to celebrate their 20th Birthday with this Birthday Celebration Collection release.

Hello everyone!

Today I am sharing a few cards I created using some of the dies and stamps from the Birthday Celebration Collection.

Topsy Turvy Cake birthday cards

I have created two cards featuring the TOPSY TURVY CAKE ETCHED DIES FROM THE BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS COLLECTION

Here’s my first one:

First of all I took some pattern appears that coordinated each other very well. I love this rich color palette of pinks, beiges and dark blues with rose glitter gold card-stock.

I started by die cutting all the pieces of the cakes in all these different pattern papers. The cake pieces have stars, diamond, stripes and circles cutouts in them. I added rose gold glitter card-stock pieces behind them .

Then I arranged the pieces of all the cakes starting from the largest in the bottom. All five cakes fit onto a slimline card front.

I decided to create another card in a regular A2 size.

For this one I used only three cakes.

The sentiments on both cards are from the COMPLIMENTARY SLIDER GREETINGS CLEAR STAMP SET FROM THE BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS COLLECTION

I stamped and embossed these sentiments with rose gold glitter embossing powder to match my rose gold glitter card-stock.

Here are the two cards together:

Baloon Animal Cards

I created two balloon animal cards. These cards feature the BALLOON PARTY ANIMAL ETCHED DIES FROM THE BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS COLLECTION

Here’s my first one in a girly color palette.

This die was my favorite of this release. Because of the cuteness of it and also the ease of being able to create beautiful card with just one impactful focal image in the front.

Like always, I started by die cutting the pieces of this animal balloon with dark pink card-stock. This die has holes in them so you can stencil the highlights through the dies to create dimension to these balloons.

For the background I took a beautiful floral pattern paper and covered the card front with it. After that, I took a white piece of card-stock and embossed it using the PARTY SPOTS EMBOSSING FOLDER FROM THE BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS COLLECTION.

Before I embossed the white panel I had stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment on it with black ink.

The sentiment is again from the COMPLIMENTARY SLIDER GREETINGS CLEAR STAMP SET FROM THE BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS COLLECTION

Here’s another one in a slightly more gender neutral color.

I die cut the ballon parts in teal color card-stock. Instead of adding the stenciled highlights on this one, I added a little white gel pen lines to suggest highlights.

The background is pattern paper with gold foiled stars. I popped up a panel of embossed piece of white card-stock leaving a quarter inch border.

For the sentiment of this card I stamped and embossed the sentiment on a piece of the same teal cardstock with white embossing powder.

Here are two cards side by side:

Which one is your favorite?

Slider Greetings Card

I had so much fun creating this one. It is an interactive card. I used PICK YOUR GREETING SLIDER ETCHED DIES FROM THE BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS COLLECTION for this one.

There is the pull tab on the left side of this card which can be moved so the arrow that says UR slides up and down pointing to each words on the right.

You could guess this one is in more masculine color theme.

I die-cut all the pieces with three different pattern papers that go with each other very well.

I glued an opposite color piece of paper behind the cutout words to create contrast.

There is other dies available which have the additional elements that you could add on this card. SLIDER BAR ACCENTS ETCHED DIES FROM THE BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS COLLECTION. I didn’t use that one here today.

Fun Shopping Cart Cards / Add To Cart Too Collection

I am thankful for this opportunity to play with these fun shopping cart dies from Spellbinders. As much as I love creating cards with die-cut images, these dies from the latest release by Spellbinders are so fun. This one is called Add To Cart Too

Hello everyone,

Today I am sharing two cards I have created with this fun die set. Here are the dies I used. They are available to purchase at Spellbinder’s shop.

My First Card

This card is fun and colorful. I die cut a bunch of images using all scrap card stocks. The parts of the cart with silver mirror card stock and wheels and handles with black.

The flamingo is cut with a shimmery pink cardstock.

I used a fun ombre leaf pattern paper for the background which made this card even more colorful and summery.

The only negative thing about this card is I didn’t have any sentiment stamps to go with it. I could have just created a printed sentiment for this card but I couldn’t decide on one.

On the second thought, this could be a card for someone who’s moving to a new place. Or even a housewarming card with maybe a gift card inside. For now I left it without a sentment.

My Second Card

I think this one is even more fun with the playful bright color combination. Don’t you think so? How the pink and green together just pop.

As I was thinking about the possible sentiment or occasion I could use the last card I created I had the idea of having this one with just milk and bread and some green plants. So I could give it to someone with a grocery shop gift card.

The details on these die cuts are so cool. You can see the puff marks on the bread and the grooves on the milk gallon. I cut the gallon with vellum and also with white. But I cut the top of the white part at an angle so it would look like milk when the gallon is tilted. And how cute that purse is.

The pink dotted background is pattern paper. So is the green dotted paper on the purse. Behind the cart, I added a green die-cut circle for extra interest.

I finished this one without the sentiment too. But whenever I need a card for such occasions I can quickly print a strip of appropriate sentiment and add to it.

Hopefully I’m able to inspire you with my two fun cards.

Hugs,

Embroidered Cards / Spellbinders Stitched Alphabets Release

Spellbinders stitched alphabet die release

Embroidered cards are so unique and trendy nowadays. Spellbinders has released a lot of stitching dies in the past which you can do some simple stitching and create fun cards.

Hello everyone !

Today I’m sharing three cards I created using the Stitched Alphabet Dies collection from the latest release by Spellbinders. This release is very special as it has the whole set of alphabets. So you can create any word you like. I picked six dies that create the word THANKS from among all the letters of the alphabet set.

First Card

My first card is a regular slimline size landscape style card. This one measures 3 and a half by 8 and a half inches.

  1. I started by die cutting the alphabets with white card-stock.
  2. Then inked the die cuts with distressed oxide inks in rainbow order.
  3. I took silver Embroidery thread and started stitching.
  4. Layered a 3 by x 8 inches piece of pattern paper with a slightly bigger card stock inked with purple for the background of my card.
  5. Then I arranged the letters in front of the card. Altering between liquid glue and foam tape.
  6. The sentiment is from Stitched Alphabets Descriptors Sentiments stamp set stamped with Versamark ink on black card stock strip and embossed with white embossing powder.

Here are some more photos of this card.

Second Card

This second card is also a slimline size which measures 3 and a half by 8 and a half inches . But this one I created in a portrait style. I use Accent Opaque White card-stock for my card-bases.

  1. I die cut the letters with white card stock. But this time i didn’t add the stitching. As I wanted the colorful shadow layer behind the white letters.
  2. I die cut the shadow layer with pattern paper.
  3. Added the white letters on the pattern piece layer with foam tape.
  4. Arranged the letters of the word THANKS directly on the card front with liquid glue
  5. The sentiment again is from Stitched Alphabet Descriptors Sentiments stamp set. Stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with White Embossing Powder.

These sentiments are so fun. It is a must have in your sentiment stamp collection.
Here are some more photos of this card.

Third Card

When I picked these letters I also thought of what other words i can create. Both my kids’ name start with the letter S and our last name is A. So i could create a monogram card for them.

I love stitching these kinds of dies. But you can also create beautiful cards without the stitching.

  1. I used the letter die and the shadow layer die both together to cut just the outlines of these letters.
  2. Then i cut just the shadow layer with pattern paper.
  3. Adhered them together with liquid glue to get this cool pattern initials with white outlines.
  4. For the background I used a panel of card-stock embossed using Simon Says Stamp embossing folder. Matted it with slightly bigger red card stock.
  5. Added the letters with foam tape on the background
  6. The again I added another embossed sentiment strip from the Stitched Alphabets Descriptors Sentiments stamp set to complete my card.

Here are some more photos of this card.

I am sure I can come up with tons of design ideas to use this die set. As alphabet dies are very versatile. It is totally worth investing in these dies.

I hope this inspires you to create fun cards like this using this release.

Hugs,
