Vintage Spools

Just a quick post and picture today.  I’m featured on the SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L blog today with this project using vintage spools.

Spellbinders and Core’dinations Blog Swap!

Today is my day for the Spellbinders™ and Core’dinations® Blog Swap!

My card today is cute and easy –

So easy, in fact, that you can make this in one cut/emboss pass using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® machine!

I took a piece of Core’dinations Black Magic Cardstock and cut the front edge with a Spellbinders Edgeabilities® Classic Petal Edger die and one of the Decorative Inserts from the same set.  At the same time, I cut the Fancy Tags Three  and Labels Twenty dies.  In the embossing step I added a Classic Rectangles LG die to just emboss the frame onto the front of the card, and the rest of the dies embossed in that pass as well.

I stamped ‘Take Time” from the Gina K. Designs The Best Things in Life set on the Fancy Tag, with Clearsnap Colorbox Black Pigment ink. then sanded the embossed areas of all the die cuts, and also around the edges, including the card base.  I love how the colored core shows through!  And Core’dinations cardstock is nice and sturdy, it’s great for die cutting and card making.

A little bit of adhesive from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L, 3D Foam Squares, and the card is done!

Don’t you love how the Spellbinders Edgeabilities dies make the fabulous edge!!

Flourishes Birthday Pennants Blog Hop!

When Flourishes first laid eyes on two of the brand new die template sets from Spellbinders, they just knew that they needed a stamp set to coordinate with these funky and fresh dies templates! Are you ready to take a peek?

This fun set just screams celebration and offers 6 different pennants and flags all designed to coordinate perfectly with Spellbinders S5-028 Nested Pennants and S5-029 Lacey Nested Pennants. There are also 9 sentiments and 8 accents in the set that you can use to deck out your pennant shapes in fun and different ways!

Want a little more to coordinate with your cards? How about our new Strips and Stripes background set? This set offers three strips to use together as one background or separate as three different strips that coordinate with the Birthday Pennants set!

  I’ve been crazy busy, but I promise to post the instructions and step shots  and inside tomorrow.  I did an easy technique to get the double embossed frame around the card. So gather up your Worldwin Paper, Clearsnap ink and Bits of Bling, SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ 3D Foam Squares and MyStik™ and a bit of twine!  I used LF-168 Grand Large Labels and S4-324 Ribbon Banners too!

 Because Flourishes just knew this set was a match made in heaven with the Spellbinder’s Pennant Dies, we asked some of their ever-so-talented designers to join the Flourishes team for a little show and tell! Make sure to hop on over and see…
