Spellbinders Design-abilities Blog Hop - Chandelier Pearl and Crystal Necklace

It’s that time again, for the Spellbinders® Blog Team to do the Design-abilites Blog Hop.  We want to share some fun, and creative projects with you. Our blog hop is every other month on the 16th and we will provide a link list to each of the Blog Team Design Members.  Before we get started, we want to let you know this blog hop is just for creative inspiration; we are not sponsored by Spellbinders Paper Arts®.  Sometimes we might not all be able to participate, but we would still encourage you to visit all of the Blog Team Design Members and check out their blogs.


I have to tell you I am loving the New A Gilded Life Collections from Spellbinders Paper Arts®!  I love to make jewelry and chunky charms and the bezels from this collections are so beautiful.  If you don't make jewelry these bezels would still be great embellishments on your cards, scrapbook layouts or to add on to your DIY home decor projects--so many possibilities!  Here is a necklace that I designed using the GLLB-004G Large Chandelier Bezel - Bronze by:  A Gilded Life.  One of the things I love about these bezels is that they come with a clear plexiglass cover so you can fill the bezels with beads, glitter, charms, found objects, ephemera paper, bling and fabrics just to name a few.  This allows you to create your very own unique and personalized bezel.  


On the outside of the bezel I applied some Patina Rub-N-Buff to give it more of a vintage look.  For the inside of the bezel I die cut a piece of printed burlap using GLD-004 Chandelier Die.  Then I used some liquid adhesive to adhere the burlap inside the bezel.  Next I added some Silver German Glass Glitter, Swarovski AB Flat Back Crystals, Pearls and a Key to the inside of the bezel.  I used more liquid adhesive to add the clear plexiglass cover and then set it aside to dry.


Here is a close up of all the little goodies inside the bezel.  I also added a few more of the Swarovski AB Flat Back Crystals to the outside of the bezel.


I created some bead dangles to hang from the bottom of the bezel.  I used Bead Cap CAP114-BBead Cap CAP052-BBronze Jump Rings from ButterBeeScraps and for the beads I used Pearls, Crystal Teardrop Bead, Round Crystal Bead, Aqua/Brown AB Round Bead.


Once the bezel was done then I added it to Bronze Chain CH206-B from ButterBeeScraps.  

Please be sure to visit all of the Spellbinders Blog Team Design Members in the link list below to see what they have created to share with you.  Just as a reminder not all of the designers are able to participate in the Blog Hop but I would still encourage you to check out their blogs--they are filled with creative inspiration!


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hugs & Smiles,
Heidi

Hello blogging friends!  It's time for another Tutorial Tuesday with JustRite Papercraft.  For this Tutorial Tuesday I will be showing you how to use different colors of Distress Inks to ink the edges of die cuts and your cards to totally change to the look.  


Here is a look at the four cards I designed for the tutorial.  The first card is just basic stamping and doesn't have any distressing.  For the second card one ink is applied and it is very lightly distressed giving the card a shabby chic look.  Two colors of ink were used on the third card to give it a vintage look.  Last but not least on the forth card three colors of ink were used to give it a vintage burnt edge look.

You can see the video tutorial and more photos with all of the details over on the JustRite Inspiration Blog.

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Labels One Sweet Friend Card

Hello and Happy Monday!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a beautiful white and gold card to share with you using the letterpress technique.


Here is the card that I designed.  It came together pretty quick and easy and the gold gives it a touch of elegance.  The card base is white and then I layered it with a piece of Bazzill Mirror Cardstock Gold.  Next I cut a white mat for the card front and lightly misted it with water on the front and back.  Then I used a Brayer and Delicata Golden Glitz Pigment Ink and applied ink to the  E3DS-004 Ornate Labels One M-bossabilities Folder.  Next I placed the white cardstock mat inside the folder and embossed it.  Doing this creates a beautiful letterpress on the paper.  


Next I used S4-426 Luscious Labels One and another piece of Bazzill Mirror Cardstock Gold to cut/emboss a beautiful label die cut.  Then I stamped a sentiment from JustRite® Papercraft-CR-03885 Grand Sentiments Clear Stamps using Delicata Golden Glitz Pigment Ink and heat embossed it using a heat tool and Ranger Super Fine Clear Embossing Powder.  I used S4-161 Labels One to cut/emboss the sentiment.  I used EZ Runner® Permanent Strips-Refillable Dispenser 49' to adhere the layers and 3D Foam Squares to pop up the die cuts.  To finish off the card I made a bow using Light Blue Silk ribbon and added a Prima LeMia Flowers Brown Cream to the center.  I also added a few Melissa Frances Pearls Tan/Brown to the corners.


I hope you enjoyed the card today.

As always you can click on all the photos to enlarge them and all of the supplies are listed below with links.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Webster's Pages Floral Cameo Card


Hello and Happy Monday to everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a pretty floral cameo card using Webster's Pages Postcards from Paris II 6 x 6 Collection.


I love the beautiful pattern papers from the Webster's Pages Postcards from Paris II 6 x 6 Collection.  The papers have wonderful images with a vintage look.  For the base of the card I used pink cardstock with an ivory mat and then the floral print on the top.  I created two die cuts using S4-427 Decorative Labels 34 and S6-010 5 x 7 Heirloom Legacy die templates from Spellbinders Paper Arts® using pink and ivory cardstock.  I added some  Cream Seam Binding and  3D Foam Squares in between the layers from some dimension.  Then I added the bows and the beautiful Webster's Pages Postcards from Paris II Perfect Accents Cameo to the center.


Here is a close up of the die cuts and the cameo.


To finish off the card I added a few light pink Prima Delight Sugardot Stickers.

I hope you enjoyed the card today.

Spellbinders Springtime Shipping Frenzy - Day # 4



Hello Blogging Friends!  Welcome to Day 4 of the Spellbinders Paper Arts® Springtime Shipping Frenzy. The time is here!  The New Spellbinders die templates that were previewed in January are now shipping!  To celebrate I've created a couple of projects to share with you and give you some ideas for the new dies.  I also have a step-by-step tutorial.  After my tutorial, there will be a chance for you to win these dies as well
as a grand prize sponsored by Spellbinders, so be sure to look for the highlighted contest link at the bottom of my post.


Here is my first project.  The die templates I am showcasing are S5-208 Majestic Labels Eight and S2-062 Create A Daisy from the Create-A-Flower series. Please note you can click on all of the images to enlarge them and see all of the details.

Supplies
Spellbinders Paper Arts®

Cross Promotional Partners
Ink:  Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Memento Rich Cocoa
Tool:  Beadalon® Round Nose Pliers

Other Supplies Used
Paper:  Simply Smooth White, Simply Smooth Ivory, Light Yellow, Herbal Garden Green
Ink/Markers:  Ranger Distress Inks-Antique Linen, Spiced Marmalade, Vintage Photo, Wild Honey; Spectrum Noir™ Markers-LY1, LY2, LY3, TN6, CG1, DG2, DG3, EB1, EB2, EB3, EB5, EB7, Blender
Accessories:  Stylus, Paint Brushes (handles), Ranger Glossy Accents, Pearls


To start I stamped the floral image from CR-04835 Black Eyed Susan Vintage Labels Five Clear Stamps from JustRite® Papercraft using Memento Rich Cocoa ink from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir™ Markers.  Then I used the Grand Calibur® Machine and S5-208 Majestic Labels Eight die template to cut/emboss the label shape.


Next I used the T-001 Tool 'n One tool to remove the die cut and all the tiny drop out pieces from the die template.  The T-001 Tool 'n One is a portable tool that performs multiple craft functions, including piercing, paper removal and many more! It's so quick and easy to use.


Here is a look at the die cut once it was removed from the die template.  


Next I stamped the sentiment and inked the edges of the die template with Antique Linen Distress ink.


Now it's time to create the daisy!  To create the daisy run the petal die template from the S2-062 Create A Daisy set through the Grand Calibur® Machine 10 times.  For the center part you will need to run that die template through 2 times.  You will need to run the disc floret through 5 times (only one shown in the photo).  I used a light yellow cardstock to die cut all of the pieces.  For the inside part of the flower and one disc floret I used spiced marmalade and vintage photo Distress Inks.  I used wild honey Distress Ink on all of the petals applying  from the inside and fading out to the tip.  I used the stylus to shape the center parts of the flower.


Next I shaped (curled) all of the petals using the end of a paint brush.  I used the larger paint brush handle for the larger petals and the smaller one for the smaller petals.  Then I glued the petals to the disc florets.  On the first disc floret adhere 2 layers of the largest petals.  The second layer should be offset from the first one.  Then adhere the next size of the petals to the disc florets going down to the smallest.  These will all have one layer of the petals.  Next shape the two smallest sets of petals.  Place each petal inside the round nose pliers and push the sides of the petal up.  


This is what the layers of the flower should look like once all the petals are glued in place.  For the center glue the pieces on to the disc floret starting from the outside and working your way to the center.  Cut and emboss three of the leaves.


Stack and glue all of the layers together and this is what the finished daisy will look like. 



These are a couple of close up pictures of the card front and the daisy.


Assemble the card as shown.  I used 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner Permanent Strips-Refillable Dispenser 49' from Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L™ to adhere all of the pieces.  Then to finish off the card I added some pearls to the corners.


For my second project I altered a small pink gift box using the same die templates.


Here is a close up of the daisy.  I used the same light yellow cardstock as I did on the first project but I used different colors of ink and it totally changed the look.

Appliqué Flowers & Vintage Sentiment Tags - SVG Cut Files - JustRite Papercraft April Release Day One

Hello everyone!  Today, is the first day of the JustRite® Papercraft April New Release!  I am loving all of the New Release and the New SVG Cut Files.  The SVG Files coordinate with the stamps and they are so quick and easy to use--gotta love that!  I have a stamp set, background stamp, and a coordinating SVG Cut File to share with you today.









I made this envelope gift card pouch using burlap paper, the stamps and the SVG cut files.  I used an envelope template to trace on the back of the burlap paper and then I fussy cut the envelope and used hot glue to put it together.  Next I added some Exquisite Beige Scalloped Floral Cotton Lace Trim 1'' from Lavish Laces around the pouch.  Then I added a couple of doilies from The Paper Bag Lady (Julie) on Zibbet. Then I added the flower cluster.   For the SVG cut files I used the exact cuts on this project.  


Here is a close up of the flower cluster.  I colored ivory cardstock with the inks, stamped the image using CR-02019 Appliqué Flowers & Vintage Sentiment Tags stamps and then stamped over top with the CL-02027 Burlap Cling Background Stamp.  I also added some pearls and used the Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen.


Here is a look at the inside of the envelope pouch.  I added some velcro for the closure.


Here is a look at the front of the pouch.  I added another flower, doily and some stick pins.

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Happy Birthday Butterfly Card

Hello and Happy Monday to everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a pretty Happy Birthday card to share with you that is filled with lots of sparkle.

**EDIT--Please read!  Hello everyone!  I have received a few comments and emails about the Spellbinders contest.  The links for the contest are on the Designer's blog when it is their day to post for the contest---NOT on all of the blogs.  So please visit the Designer's blogs for each day of the contest--they are listed on the Spellbinders blog.  Thanks!  My day for the contest will be Thursday April 3rd so I hope you will stop back!  ;-) 


The card is a 5-1/2 x 5-1/2 square.  I used kraft cardstock for the base and then I added a mat of light blue.  The pattern paper is from the Melissa Frances Classic Elegance 6 x 6 Paper Pad.  The paper has a very faint script pattern and papers like this are perfect for adding a stamped image.  I used the LaBlanche Silicone Stamp Swirl Background stamp with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo and then I colored the image with Spectrum Noir™ Markers TB1, LG1.  Next I added Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue and applied  Tim Holtz Distress Glitter Clear Rock Candy


Here is a close up of the stamped image.  I love all of the sparkle!


Next I created a few die cuts using S2-073 FluttersS2-083 Flutter Tree, and S2-082 Sentiments One die templates.  I used another piece of the pattern paper for the butterflies and light blue for the sentiment.  I also added some Tim Holtz Distress Glitter Clear Rock Candy and Darice Sequins 5mm Iridescent White.



I love how this card came together and the soft colors.

I hope you enjoyed the card today.
