Hi there and thanks for joining me today! I’m so happy and excited to share that I was recently a guest designer over on the Spellbinders blog! Their products are just awesome and I have many cards for you, highlighting the spectacular Handmade Collection by Stephanie Low.
I think you’re going to love this new collection, too: every single set is so inspiring and all its gorgeous images immediately caught my eye.
For today’s card I used the Sew Handmade stamp set and die set. All the images are so beautifully detailed and you can easily combine them with the other stamp sets from the Handmade collection for endless creative possibilities.
I started working on this card by creating a custom background using the small individual images from the Sew Handmade set along with an element from the Yarn Handmade set.
I randomly stamped spools, thimbles and yarn balls on a kraft cardstock panel using VersaMark Clear Pigment ink to achieve a two tone effect.
Then I stamped the main image with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and colored it with Copic markers, adding some details with my colorless blender.
Once the coloring was done, I used the coordinating die to partial die-cut the colored panel, leaving a small part of the image outside the card base edge.
Next, I trimmed the kraft cardstock panel down, aligned it in the right position and die-cut the shape of the main image out of it. Finally, I adhered it on my card base using foam tape for dimension.
To finish this project, I stamped the sentiment with black dye ink and foam mounted it on my card, after coloring it with Copics. I also added some sparkling clear sequins as embellishment and a bit of Wink Of Stella for shimmer.
Thank you so much for stopping by and big thanks to Spellbinders for having me as a guest designer this month!
