Spellbinders Birthday Celebration Release

Hello crafty friends.

Spellbinders is celebrating their 20th birthday this month and they have launched a Birthday Celebrations Collection with lots of fun birthday stamps, dies, stencils, embossing folders, and more!  

Today I’m going to be making several birthday cards using many of the new products in their Birthday Celebrations Collection.

You can watch how I made all of my cards here.

Card 1

For my first card, I made a slimline card. I used the Party Spots Embossing Folder for the background of my card. I added Distress Oxide ink in Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass for the sky and Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the grass. I love how the balloon animal is popping out of the surprise box! Both of these are new dies in the Spellbinders Birthday Celebration collection.

I just love the dimension that the surprise box adds to the card. I added sentiments to the front of the box from the Birthday Unboxing Stamp Set. I also added some multi-color crinkle paper to the inside of the box.

Card 2

For my next card, I used the Hand Drawn Scallops Embossing Folder for the background of the card. I really love the size of the new Spellbinders Embossing Folders! They measure 5 3/4″ x 8 3/4″ which are perfect for A2, 5″ x 7″, and slimline cards! I used the Stitched Fringe Cake Die Set as the centerpiece of my card. I added the sentiment from the Birthday Unboxing Sentiments Stamp Set.

Card 3

For my next card, I used the Party Spots Embossing Folder. I added five balloons from the Color Block Balloon Die Set. I added several different colored cardstock pieces to the balloons in rainbow colors. I love how the large sentiment from the It’s Party Time Stamp Set fits perfectly inside of the large balloon!

Card 4

For my next card, I added Distress Oxide inks in rainbow colors on the On The Dots stencil. I added two balloons from the Color Block Balloons Die Set and the Stylized Happy Birthday word die.

Slimline Scene Birthday Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Hello Crafty Friends.

Scene cards are some of my favorite cards to make and there are so many fun products in the Pretty Pink Posh February release that I just couldn’t help myself to make a fun slimline scene birthday card.

Since Pretty Pink Posh is turning eight years, I decided to make a birthday card to celebrate the occasion.

You can watch a tutorial for my card here.

Pretty Pink Posh - Balloon Alphabet - Balloon Numbers - Crafty Critters - Birthday Borders - Slimline Birthday Card

I started off by stamping the images from the Balloon Alphabet stamp set, Balloon Numbers stamp set, Birthday Borders stamp set, and the Crafty Critters Stamp set. (Note: The Crafty Critters stamp set was a promotional stamp set during the month of February only and is not currently for sale on their website. Hopefully, some of you were able to get this set last month.)

I colored all of my images with Copic markers. The colors I used are as follows:

H Balloon – RV02, RV04, RV06

B Balloon – BG11, BG13, BG15, BG49

D Balloon – RV000, RV00, RV02

8 Balloon – YR12, YR14, YR16

Presents – YR12, YR16/RV00, RV02, RV04, RV06/BG11, BG13, BG49/RV00, RV02, RV04/BG11, BG13, BG49

Mouse and Koala – Blender, C0, C1, C3, C4/R01, R11

After coloring my images, I die cut them with the coordinating dies. 

Next, I die cut the Nature Essential Dies from plain white cardstock and set aside the cloud border and grass borders from this set. 

To create the cloud background, I started off by cutting a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock to 3 3/8” x 8 3/8”. Next, I used the cloud border that I die cut from the Nature Essential dies along with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink to create a cloud background for my card. 

I also applied Mowed Lawn Distress ink to the two grass border die cuts from the Nature Essential dies.

Next, I began to assemble my card. I started off by cutting the Birthday Borders in half so that only the first six presents were showing.  I added one of the grass borders behind the presents at the top of the border. I added the smaller grass border in front of the presents at the bottom of the border.  I added some Mowed Lawn Distress ink to the bottom portion of the card panel and then adhered the Birthday Borders to the bottom of the slimline card panel. Next, I added the remaining stamped images to the card panel.

To add dimension to the clouds, I used the Build-A-Cupcake die set and die cut two of the frosting dies that resembles a cloud shape from white cardstock. I added Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink to the clouds and then cut the cloud die cut in half. I added foam tape the to back of the cloud die cuts and added them to my card. I love how the clouds add dimension to the card.

Finally, I added the card panel to a pink slimline card base that measures 3 1/2” x 8 1/2” and added the Flamingo Pearls to the card front.

Spellbinders Be Bold Color Block Collection - Happy Birthday Slimline Card
birthday, Birthday Cards, Glitter cards, Slimline Card, Spellbinders, Thank You Cards

Spellbinders | Be Bold Color Block Collection

Hi everyone!

Today I’m sharing some cards I made using Spellbinders Be Bold Color Block Collection. I love the dies in this collection because you can use them for quick and easy cards. The dies do all of the work and are the focal point of your cards. The only thing you need to think about is the color of paper you want to use.

There are many different word dies in this collection — Happy Birthday, Thank You, Congrats, Love You, Hello You, and Merry Christmas. For my cards, I used the Happy Birthday and Thank You dies. I will provide links at the bottom of this blog post to all of the dies in this collection, including the ones I am not showing today.

If you would like to see these dies in action and how I made my cards, check out my YouTube video.

For the birthday card, I used a different color glitter cardstock sheet for each of the letters in the word “birthday.” The Scrapbook.com slimline paper pads work great because each pad contains eight different colors of cardstock. I used the Rainbow glitter slimline paper pad for my cards. I die cut the entire die from each of the eight pieces of cardstock and that gave me enough die cuts to make a total of eight birthday cards! I used the Scrapbook.com Mixed Metals slimline paper pad for the word “happy” and die cut it from black glitter cardstock.

The birthday die measures 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and fits perfectly on the front of slimline card base.

For my next set of cards, I used the Spellbinders Be Bold Color Block Thank You die set. This die set measures 6 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ and is the perfect size for a mini slimline card.

For these cards, I used up some scraps of some pattern paper. I love how the pattern paper looks on the large bold letters.

To finish my cards, I added some ephemera pieces and silver gems to the card front.
