Spellbinders New Collections Blog Hop


Hi and welcome the the Spellbinder New Collections Inspiration Blog Hop featuring the new Happy and Gilded Age Products! You should have arrived here from Jacquie Dean's Blog. You can find a full list of designers participating in the Hop below. 


My first card features the new Shapeabilites Sending a Happy Birthday Etched Dies Happy by Sharyn Sowell. This die set creates such a cute scene! I created the background for the 5 x 5 card front by stenciling clouds and adding a border of patterned paper at the bottom. 


All the die cuts I used to create this card are included in the Sending a Happy Birthday Etched Dies Set, including the sentiment. I cut the little girl twice, once from white cardstock and again from a teal cardstock. To create the dress I cut off the legs, arms, and head. I also die cut the sentiment twice, once from a bright pink cardstock and again from yellow cardstock. Then I layered the pink over the yellow, offsetting just a bit to leave the yellow shadow. 


My second card is created with the new Gilded Vines Glimmer Hot Foil Plate The Gilded Age by Becca Feeken. I used the Glimmer Hot Foil System and Glimmer Hot Foil in Skybright to foil the die. 


The sentiment is from the Captured Sentiments Clear Stamp Set. I accented the foil with clear sequins and lace. 

To celebrate this release, we are giving away a $50 gift certificate to 3 lucky blog readers – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Giveaway closes on Sunday, April 7th 11:59 pm EDT. Winners will be announced in our blog hop post the following Monday. Winner is responsible for shipping cost, duties and taxes.

Thanks for stopping by! Now hop on over to Desiree Kuemmerle's Blog for more inspiration.
