Here is my first card:
My card today features the beautiful Romantic Floral Designs! This new set coordinates with the Spellbinders Labels 26. I stamped it in blue to match the Prima designer paper and then cut it out. I also used one of the new Anniversary sets that came out last month called Scripture Collection 10. I cut this out with a Spellbinders Scalloped Labels One. Then it was just a matter of a little sponging along the edges and putting the card together. I added a beautiful seam binding bow made with Becca's Peg Bow Maker and adorned it with a pretty Prima flower. Zva pearls complete the card!
And here is one more!
The new Stained Glass Collage is so cool! I used a technique I have never used before called Acrylic Smash. There is a great tutorial on Splitcoast that I followed. I stamped the collage onto a piece of acetate that I had saved from packaging. I cut out the shape with a Spellbinders Labels 23. I also cut out the same shape from white cardstock.
I flipped over the piece of acetate and painted a few small 'globs' of acrylic paint to the unstamped side. Then I flipped it back over and carefully set it on top of the card stock piece. I smooshed out the excess paint and made sure all the edges lined up and allowed the two pieces to dry together. There is no need for glue! Then I just popped up the acetate piece over the base card that has the new ODBD/Spellbinders Quatrefoil Pattern Die cut adhered to it! This technique is so much easier than it looks and really doesn't take too much time! It's very messy but really fun!
We are so pleased to have you hopping with us today! Aren't the new releases fabulous?!!
I'll be back soon to share more cards made with some of these new sets!!!
