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…

I loved the holly wreath in this set, and wanted to hang it on my door:

I am thrilled to remove the project picture and replace it with this:

 

I created a 6-panel door using S4-142 Long Classic Rectangle LG #2 (the smallest is #1) to make four of the panels, and S4-128 Classic Squares SM #3 for the top pieces.  I inked the edges and embossed lines with Distress Antique Linen ink, and adhered the panels with SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L 3D Foam Squares, to give them more dimension. The door knob is a glitter brad from Creative Impressions, and it’s on the smallest die cut from S4- 283 2010 Heirloom Ornaments. All paper is from Worldwin.

The inside has “Merry Christmas” stamped on S5-025 Labels Seventeen, and layered onto S4-301 Labels Sixteen.

 

Taking a closer look at the wreath, you can see that it has three layers.  I stamped it three times and colored them with Copic atyou Spica pens, using Lipstick for the berries and Olive and Melon for the holly leaves.  I hand cut and layered with 3D Foam Squares.

Pictures just don’t capture the glittery delight of the pens, but belive me, its there! 

Thanks for looking!  Enjoy the blog hop and don’t forget to enter to win on the Flouishes Blog!

Monday Morning and a Bracelet

Good Monday Morning! What did you think of the Sneak Peeks? Which die(s) are your favorite? For me, its got to be the Labels 1, we’ve been asking for that one for a long time. I tend to favor the more general shapes that are versatile, instead of the more specific. I also like to use dies beyond their obvious shape. I used the Labels 2 die as an object, not a label, in a project for this week’s show, I’ll be able to post that picture next week.Today I’m sharing a bracelet I made using shrink plastic and Spellbinders dies and stamps, Copic Markers and Krylon leafing pens, among other trinkets and baubles. I found the bracelet base on sale at Kohl’s a year ago and have kept it in my stash waiting for inspiration. Some of the items are 7 Gypsies (oh, do I love 7 Gypsies!), a typewriter key, and watch parts.

I used my Wizard to smash the bottlecap, filled it with loose watch parts and filled in with Glossy Accents. I punched the hole with my Crop A Dile. I used tags and rectangles to cut the shrink plastic (Lucky Squirrel brand), stamped the Spellbinders stamps with pigment ink and colored in random spots with Copic Markers. The stamps I used were parts of a butterfly, the wreath stamp and one from the clock set, going for more of an abstract pattern than actual shapes. I shrunk it with my heat tool and colored the backs and sides with Krylon paint pens to make it look more like metal. While the Copic markers go on semi-transparent, when shrunk they look much more intense.

I’m off to clean my house and get myself ready for CHA in Rosemont IL this week. If you are attending, please stop by the booth to see ALL the artwork from the Sneak Peeks, ALL the new dies, including dies that were not included in the peeks, and a few of the artists, including me! Spellbinders is booth 3909.
