You're tea-riffic! card


Today I would like to share a birthday card for a friend. I decorated the front of the card with a pocket die. I used the Pattern die twice and the trimmed the edges. I used Spellbinders S4-986 - Filigree Shadowbox Easel and Pocket die.

Dzisiaj chciałabym pokazać kartkę z okazji urodzin, którą ozdobiłam wykrojnikiem kieszonka. Ozdobny panel zrobiłam wycinając tylko wewnętrzną część kieszonki dwa razy. Użyłam Spellbinders S4-986 - Filigree Shadowbox Easel and Pocket die.


I used the same die to create a pocket inside of the card.

Użyłam tego samego wykrojnika do zrobienia kieszonki wewnątrz.


When I was creating the card base I have scored it in a middle twice creating 1/4'' space so that there is room for tea bags inside and the card can be still closed. I did the same when I was creating the pocket.

Bazę kartki zbigowałam dwa razy tak aby powstało 1/4'' dodatkowego miejsca tak aby kartka mogła być złożona kiedy wewnątrz są torebki z herbatą. Tak samo przygotowałam kieszonkę wewnątrz.


On my card I also added handmade flowers Spellbinders S4-867 - Cinch and Go Flowers III and I hand stamped a sentiment on a label from Spellbinders S4-926 - Swirl Tags.

Na kartkę dodałam kwiatki z wykrojnika Spellbinders S4-867 - Cinch and Go Flowers III a sentyment odbiłam na etykiecie z zestawu Spellbinders S4-926 - Swirl Tags.


Have a nice day!
Miłego dnia!

Introducing The Gilded Age Collection Blog Hop


Greetings glimmeristas!    Today, we are launching The Gilded Age - a small glimmer collection with some exquisite plates.  Join us as we introduce five new Glimmer Sets (some with dies) and 1 brand new Die Set that has matching glimmer plates. We've eased into the beautiful habit of building card layers and layering frames with foil and the Spellbinders Glimmer Foil System.   These metal plates are just like stamps and can be used for letterpress and deep embossing as well as transferring gorgeous foils to many items.  Welcome to The Gilded Age Collection - Becca shares her inspiration below:

Inspiration for The Gilded Age
I have a romantic fascination with days gone by and the beautiful, fragile relics that survive to create our memories. The Gilded Age is a look back to a time when beautiful things were all around and each item had a story tied to it.  Fineries were hard earned and treasured, garnered with much pride and bathed with love and sentimental value.  Whether in art or clothes or architecture, the timeless glamour of the era thankfully punctuates our lives today.
It was an age where dreamers knew no bounds in decorating and inventing, paving the way for exquisite art, extravagant embellishment and a level of grandeur that defies simplicity.   We're fortunate that traces of the era live on.  One of our present day methods of gilding comes in the way of foiling. Once only able to be carried out at prints shops, it was an expensive process that signaled exceptional taste; your eyes can't help but be drawn to it.
 
In the collection, I've curated a couple of looks inspired by a ladies stationary desk.  A desk where she might sit a compose "Thank You" notes with care and attention to detail using her coveted fineries of the day.  Each plate in the collection delivers a mark that can be considered hallmarks of fine penmanship and papers.  I'm convinced that each of us has a mark, an indelible mark - the tools are there, calling out for us to use them.
My Project For Today:

I'm tickled to introduce Spellbinders GLP-103 - Glided Nesting Rectangle Glimmer Set and Spellbinders S4-1013 - Glided Nesting Rectangle Die Set.



Here is what the plates actually look like:



Here is the die set:



I created a Wedding Day card. I decorated the card with Glided Rectangles. I used holographic foil and matching Glided Rectangle die set. I also added accents from Spellbinders S4-926 - Swirl Tags.

Amazing Paper Grace March Die of the Month Blog Hop


Do you ever suffer from blank page syndrome? Or you clear your schedule and your table and sit down to make a card, and bam - your mind goes blank. That's why we're here! We love bringing you inspiration for the Die of the Month and today is our Die of the Month Blog Hop for March.

Since we all see things differently, it's our aim to show you how each of us approached designing with this die and the lovely pieces that are a part of it. Our hope is that you snag a picture or two for your inspiration file and they come in handy next time you sit down to create. Our list of links at the bottom of the post lead to all the inspiration.

The six pieces that make up Spun Blessings Oval combine to make a card front die, perfect for a background or you can creatively use all of the inlays for either accents or borders. You may have noticed, it's a big die but the better to make alternative designs like the little baskets that help to create an ensemble.



If you want to find out more about the Club - prices, how you sign up and what's included, please look --------> HERE.
If you missed the introduction and want to know more about what inspired the Die of the Month Club, look ------->HERE.

My Card Today:



I created a birthday card with a beautiful lacy details. I die cut card base using the oval die and I followed this tutorial by Becca click.


I decorated my card with handmade flowers using Spellbinders S4-867 - Cinch and Go Flowers III, Spellbinders S4-982 - Cinch and Go Flowers IV and APG February Die of The Month.
The sentiment comes from Spellbinders SDS-054 - Giving Occasions Stamp Die set.


My second project:


I created a basket using an oval base. I laid in the rectangle panels only then I scored along the pre scored lines and folded up creating a basket. The handle are two labels (the center piece) that are meeting at the top.


More inspiration is just a click away. Stop by with each Creative Team Member to see more!
