3 Cards | Spellbinders December Small & Large Die Kit

Hey there,

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are refreshed and ready to start off the new year – here’s to a craft-tabulous 2019! I’m getting things started with some cards using the Spellbinders December Small and Large Die sets. Since these were really made to work together I decided to combine them and while I’ll still have 3 cards for each video, I’m using the flip card die for these 3 and then tomorrow I’ll have some cards using the florals. Here’s what I came up with:

And here are your close-ups:

I really like how this card came out – I love that balloon paper and the colors are muted but still so pretty.

The little flip that circle does is a lot of fun.

Here I wanted to give you a look at how the flip would be for a landscape card. Keep in mind you can flip this 4 different ways for all different looks.

2 inside

I’m in love with that mustard yellow color – you’ll see it keeps coming back in all the cards lol.

Finally, I wanted to try something different and see if I could create a spinning circle in this card and I’m really pleased with how it came out.

You can watch the video for more details, but basically, I added the fishing line right over top of the right-hand fold and since it’s see-through you can barely tell that it’s there. I looped it all around the card and then hid the knot between my sentiment sandwich.

13 Days of Halloween – Day 4 | I’m BATS about you

Hello there,

I’ve been working all weekend on projects for this Halloween series and am in love with how this card came out. It’s been in my head for a few days so I was really happy to get it down on paper and that it turned out as I was planning. Here is the video of how it came together…

Here are some stills of the finished card:

Doesn’t that look like a cave full of bats! This is the first time I’ve colored in a background around stamped images and I’m for sure doing more of that.

Here is a close up of that little cutie! you can see how that colored pencil (though not necessary) gives just that little bit of extra.

With the front being so busy I kept the inside simple, but couldn’t resist adding a little pop of orange washi tape.

Here is that rip strip in action:
