Spellbinders BIG Birthday

Hello Friends!  Today I am sharing a card created using Spellbinders Happy Birthday Easel Celebrate the Day by Marisa Job - it makes quite a statement don't you think?!?  Not only that - this could be the quickest layered card you are likely to create - now that I have your attention...LOL!


The card front has seen embossed using the Grid Embossing Folder on white card stock.  I have trimmed the Happy Birthday Easel to make it single sided and adhere to the lower portion of the card front using liquid glue.  The 'happy' has been created using stickers from my stash!

The card front has been layered onto a pre-cut card base using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares - and there you have it - it is as easy as that!!

Spellbinders Emmeline Treillage Tutorial

Hello friends! It is always an honour to share a tutorial for Spellbinders - their inspirational Dies are beautiful to create with and always give a professional look to your cards.  They certainly take the hard work out of card making - as you will see in my tutorial.


Today I am sharing a very quick and easy card - it is so pretty with the gorgeous Card Creator Die by Becca Feeken.  One of the fabulous things about these Dies is it has a filigree insert and a cutting edge - that can be used together or by it self,  I have used the cutting edge ti create a pretty card base as well - you can see how I have done that by following along with me to the end of the tutorial.


1. Cut/emboss one Emmeline Treillage Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken using the Platinum 6 and Anna Griffin Inc. paper.
2. Remove the excess pieces using the Tool N One.

3. Cut/emboss two Emmeline Treillage Etched Dies using the cutting edge only and white card stock.
4. Score one Emmeline Treillage Etched Die at 1.5 cm .
5. Fold forward and add double sided tape.
6. Attach the second Emmeline Treillage Etched Die making sure the edges line up - to form card base.

7. Adhere a strip of Scrapbook Adhesives By 3L Adhesive Sheet (approx 5cm) across the centre of the card front and inside front. 
8. Centre lace over the front Adhesive Panel, then around the back of the card front - securing the ends using String red tape.

9. Pop up the Anna Griffin Inc. embellishment using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares to the lower portion of the card.
10. Trim Want2Scrap Swirls Finesse in white to the desired size, adhere either side of the popped up sentiment.

I told you it was easy didn't I!

Other :  Liquid Glue; Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: E-Z Adhesive Runner, 3D Foam Squares; , White card stock; Anna Griffin Inc: Lovely Layers 5x7; Want2Scrap: Swirls Finesse - White Pearls - Self Adhesive; recycled lace, liquid glue

Kaleidoscope Memories

Hello friends - it is Saturday evening here and I have had a little time to play in The Studio -' just because' - I love these times because I can use some of the things I have put aside to use one day...and then they become UFOs - unfinished objects - you know what I mean - or is it just me?!? LOL!


I have used the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Geo Steps Kaleidoscope by Lene Lok Etched Dies as my starting place.  It has been cut/embossed using the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine and glued onto some patterned paper using liquid glue.  The patterned paper has been trimmed using scissors.  This in turn has been adhered to a card front, using Graphic 45 paper.


A row of lace has been adhered along the join of the patterned papers and a flower from Kaisercraft popped up on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares to the centre of the patterned paper panels.  I have added a light touch of blue to the centre of the flower - using Imagine Memento Ink in Summer Sky.    72 Count - White Pearls have been adhered along the lace trim - wither side of the flower.


A double seam binding bow has been glued to the left of the flower and a handmade embellishment glued to the centre of the bow,  The Kaisercraft sentiment has been popped up onto the bottom right hand corner of the card.
