Hello Card with Stitched Alphabet Dies

This lovely card was a lot of fun to make…and that surprised me because I don’t normally enjoy sewing. However, the stitched alphabet dies from Spellbinders made it super simple and easy. What’s nice about these dies is there are several choices on how you can use them. If you don’t want to sew, you don’t have too…just let the color of the background shine through! You can use them with material as well to create a keepsake ornament instead of a card or to monogram something for someone.

The first step in making this card is to gather all your supplies:

  • die cutting machine ( I used the Spellbinders Platinum 6 machine)
  • stitched alphabet dies
  • 8.5″ x 11″ blue and light yellow/cream colored cardstock to make the letters
  • mirrored gold cardstock for the phone and flowers
  • 110lb cardstock (I used Neenah solar white)
  • thread or embossing floss If you choose to sew the letters
  • an embroidery needle, which has a blunt tip so it it will not pierce your skin or the paper
  • adhesive (I used a liquid adhesive)
  • Stamping platform or acrylic blocks
  • Spellbinders’ “Sentiments for You” clear stamps or any greeting stamps you want to use
  • Black dye ink to stamp your greeting
  • Spellbinders flower dies from the April 2021 Card Kit of the Month called, “Sincerely Yours”
  • Spellbinders phone dies from the September 2021 Card Kit of the Month called, “Together is the Best”

To make the cardbase, trim your 110lb cardstock from 11″ to 8.25″. Then, rotate it and trim from 8.5″ to 8.25″. Then, score it at 4 1/8th inch.

Cut the blue and yellow/cream cardstock in half at the 5.5″ inch mark so you have two pieces that measure 8.5″ by 5.5″.

Use one of the pieces of the blue cardstock to cut out the background letter and the phone.

Use one of the pieces of the yellow/cream cardstock to cut out the main letters.

Use the mirrored gold cardstock to cut out the phone cord and the end caps for the phone.

Cut a length of 20″ of embossing floss and thread your embossing needle.

Stitch the letters. Then, adhere them to the blue backgrounds. To stich them, start by threading your embroidery needle and leave about two inches of thread on one side.

Then, coming up from the back, bring your needle through the center hole.

Be sure to leave some excess thread on the back. I hold it with my finger while sewing, but you could tape it down.

Once it’s through the center hole, go through the top hole on the outside ring.

Come back through the center hole.

Go through the next available top hole on the outside ring. Repeat these steps until all stitching is complete.

Tie off the string by using your needle to go under one of the stictches on the back side and then going through the loop before you pull it taunt. You can do this twice to make sure it’s secure. Then, cut the string.

Do this for all your letters. Then, set them aside so you can assemble the card.

Trim the second piece of yellow cardstock to 8″ by 3.75″. Adhere it to the cardbase.

Use a stamping platform to stamp the greeting on the card. I placed the letters on the card without glue so I could be sure to place the greeting in the proper spot. I moved them out of the way once the greeting stamp as in place.

Adhere the letters, phone, and flowers to the card.

Happy Easter with Spellbinders Half Slimline Bracket Etched Dies

Hello and Happy Easter! Today’s card features the beautiful dies from Spellbinders called, “Half Slimline Bracket Etched Dies” from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimline Collection by Becca Feeken. This die set comes with the inlaid die, the cut out die, and some words: “I Pick You.”

There are several choices you have with these dies. You can use the intricate die by itself which will create an inlaid look. This is what I’ve done with the card shown above. You also have the option of cutting them out entirely by using both dies together. Then, you can adhere it to another sheet of cardstock to create a different look, which is what I did in yesterday’s card with a similar Spellbinders die called, “Half Slimline Diamond Etched Dies” below:

For today’s card, though, I chose to create two versions. One with the words,, “I Pick You,” and one with a cross for Easter. Here is the one with the words:

Please note that I chose to cut the die from the inside of the two panels instead of flipping them and cutting them from the edges. This way, I created some solid space on the edges of the card. For the Easter card, this was important because I needed that space to spell HAPPY EASTER with the gold letters, “H-A-P-P-Y E-A-S-T-E-R.” For the I Pick You card, it may have been better to flip the dies so the words have more solid space to stick to. Oh, well. You live, you learn. That doesn’t mean I won’t make the same mistake again, ha, ha.

I used two additional Spellbinders dies to create the Easter card: Crosses Two and One Kind Word Alphabet Collage. As of the posting of this blog, the first is still available, the second is not. To adhere the cross and flowers to the card, I used my Tombow Mono Liquid Adhesive and my reverse tweezers and a katana tool which has a wax tip in order to make picking up and placing the pieces easier.

You’ll need to use larger Spellbinders die cutting machine (the 8.5″ platform) because the Platinum 6 will not fit an 8.5 inch piece of cardstock. When cutting this design into the card panels, you’ll need to flip the cardstock to the back side. This is because the two side card panels fold forward to the center of the card. As I mentioned above, I chose to cut the die from the inside of the panel, BUT when you are flipping the cardstock, it appears that it is the outer edge. Once you fold the flaps to the front, you’ll see that it is actually the inside area.

Plant Joy Card with Spellbinders Half Slimline Diamond Dies

I’m making an any occasion card today. It would make a beautiful Easter card…just substitute the words on this card with “Happy Easter!” I used the new dies from Spellbinders called: Half Slimline Diamond Dies from the Layered Fleur Boquet Slimline Collection available now. As you probably guessed from the name of the dies, this card is a slimline card, which measures 3.5″ x 8.5″. I just trimmed an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of cardstock to 7 inches along the 11 inch side and then scored it at 3.5″.

These dies can be used to inlay the cut or you can use the “cut-out” die that comes in the set to cut the design out (which is what I did for this card) and adhere the pieces to another piece of cardstock or specialty paper. In this case, I adhered it to some gold vellum.

The set comes with the words, “Plant Joy.” I cut them out of the same dark purple that I used for the decorative die and I also cut it from black cardstock and adhered the purple and black layers together with the black slightly askew so it creates a shadow for the words.

Finally, I die cut some flowers and their centers to dress up the front of the card. The flower dies are also from Spellbinders. I subscribed to the card kit of the month last year, and this one was the August 2021 card kit called, “Art School,” which had dies to cut out these 3 sizes of flowers as well as an art pallet and paint tubes and brushes (which I didn’t use). I used the light purple cardstock to cut out the flowers and some yellow cardstock for the centers.

Thank You Card with Spellbinders Mini Inverted Squares Dies

This card features a geometric pattern created using the Spellbinders new dies called, “Mini Inverted Squares” from the Mini Shapes Collection. Geometric patterns are great for anyone, so they are extremely versatile and can be used for almost any occasion or holiday as well as for any person on your list!

As you can see this card could be given to virtually anyone, but you change it’s look by using different colors. I’ve chosen to use colors that are from the same family (next to each other on the color wheel) to create an analogous color scheme. I’ve alternated two colors in one square, but you can choose to use more than two colors if you’d like.

I used liquid adhesive to glue these pieced to my card panel and then I used foam adhesive on the back of the card panel to make it stand up off the card base. To finish the card, I used a thank you stamp from the Spellbinders set called, “Sentiments for You” along with some memento dew drop ink in the color potter’s clay.

Yesterday, I posted a card featuring another die set in this new release called, “Mini Color Block Crosses.” They look very similar to the mini inverted squares, so don’t get the sets confused.

If you’d like to see a demonstration of how this card was made, please check out the video below.

Father’s Day Card 2022 with Spellbinders Mini Color Block Crosses

I’m making a slimline card for Father’s Day using the new Spellbinders dies called, “Mini Color Block Crosses.” There are two small dies in this set and they are very inexpensive, but you can do so much with them. They sent me these dies and asked me to create with them. I was more than happy to do so.

These dies have a geometric design, which makes them so versatile. The possibilities are virtually limitless when it comes to color choice and layout design. You can stack them and lay them out side by side or in a staggered, random, or repeating pattern. You can use all of them or just some of them. You can use a mono-chromatic color scheme or choose more of a contrasting color scheme.

For more ideas and images visit Spellbinders.

I chose to go with using only some of the die cuts with a mono-chromatic color scheme in a repeated pattern layout. For the greeting, I used a stamp set that was released by Spellbinders just recently this year called, “Sentiments for You.” The ink is versa-fine black onyx.

I created a pocket in this card and inserted a piece of frosted white vellum which you can see in the image above through the “windows” I created on the card using one of the dies from the Spellbinders Mini Color Block Crosses dies. It was an easy thing to do and you can watch the video of the cardmaking process is below:

Happy Mother’s Day with Spellbinders Dies and Stamps

Spellbinders has released a new collection called, “Celebrate You” with lots of dies and stamps. They asked me to create for them using the stamp set called, “Sentiments for You.”

This is the perfect stamp set for this time of year, with greetings appropriate for many Spring occasions. I’m making a Mother’s Day card with the stamp set, along with a die set they released last year called, “Elegant Twist Squares” and some of their mirror gold cardstock.

You can see in the image above the embossed greeting, “Happy Mother’s Day” This is one of the stamps that comes in the “Sentiments for You” stamp set. This card looks very elegant, but the dies make it a simple card to make.

You’ll need:

  • Spellbinders Clear Stamp Set: Sentiments for You
  • Spellbinders Die set: Elegant Twist Squares
  • Spellbinders Color Essentials Cardstock in Alabaster
  • Spellbinders Mirror Gold Cardstock
  • Gold Embossing Powder
  • Versa Mark Ink Pad
  • Heat Tool
  • Anti-static powder
  • Ribbon
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Die Cutting Machine
  • Glue Dots
  • Double Sided Adhesive
  • Gold Ribbon

I used my paper trimmer to cut the 8.5″ x 11″ alabaster cardstock in half at the 5.5″ mark. I rotated one piece and scored it at 4.25″ to create my cardbase. I trimmed the second piece down to 4″ x 5.25″ which will be my cover. The mirror gold cardstock was trimmed just shy of the 4″ x 5.25″ so it would create that gold background for the open twists. I used the Elegant Twists Squares dies to cut the design into the alabaster cover and to cut out the center square. Then, I adhered the mirror gold cardstock to the back of the alabaster cover.

I used gold embossing powder, versa mark ink pad, anti-static powder, and a heat tool to emboss the sentiment from the “Sentiments for You” stamp set onto the center square. To add some dimension, I used foam adhesive behind the square to “pop it up.”

Finally, I used gold ribbon and tied a bow. I adhered it using glue dots.

Rainbow Birthday Card with Spellbinders Let’s Celebrate Sentiments Clear Stamp Set and pattern paper

The pattern paper I’m using for this card is a rainbow image. I think it’s bright and beautiful, happy and fun!

This card is super easy to make. You’ll need the pattern paper. It’s from Spellbinders card kit of the month for August 2021 called, “Art School”. Then you’ll need the stamp set from Spellbinders called, “Let’s Celebrate Sentiments.” Next, you’ll need some black ink and some acrylic blocks. Finally, you’ll need some puffy heart stickers or any stickers you’d like to use to decorate the card. Also, don’t forget your cardbase. I used heavy weight cardstock to create the cardbase. You can make your own cardbase or buy them.

The stamps are flexible, so I just bent them slightly before putting them on my acrylic block so they would follow the curve of the rainbow. When the stamping was done, I placed the puffy heart stickers. Have fun making this card. I sure did!

Gift Bag Die from Spellbinders Celebrate You Collection

This die is a great addition to anyone’s crafting supplies. With it, you can create a sweet little gift bag that actually holds more weight than you might think. I tested it with a bottle of lotion that was about 6 ounces. It’s perfect for almost any occasion.

I used the die with some patterned paper to create the gift bag. Then, I used some die cut shapes and dimensional floral stickers to decorate the bag: all of which came from Spellbinders products. The pattern paper is from the Beauty is Everywhere paper pad. The flowers and butterfly are from the Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month for December 2021, which happens to be the kit the paper pad comes from and shares the name, Beauty is Everywhere.

You need two sheets of the pattern paper, and luckily, you’ll get two of each pattern in this paper pad. Then you’ll die cut the pattern twice and fold on the score lines to create the overall shape. Next, you’ll need some scor-tape or some other strong adhesive to adhere the pieces together. The handles for the bag are made using the narrow die. You’ll cut this one out twice, too. The dies make this project a simple one, but explaining how to put the bag together in words is not simple…so the video below will demonstrate that for you!

Using Tag Dies to Create a Fun, Interactive Card

I used the Spellbinders Assorted Tag Etched Dies to create “flaps” on the front of a card that the receiver could open and read a stamped message. The messages are from the Spellbinders card kit of the month It was fun and I’m sure it will bring a smile to the person who receives it. The process of making it is very simple. It’s almost like creating a puzzle.

Just use a piece of pattern paper cut to the size of your card. Then, place the dies on the pattern paper where you want them. I placed them so that the largest tag is on the top row and there are two in the second and third row. The flaps each open opposite each other, like cabinet doors. Use a die cutting machine to cut them out and save them for the final step. Next, adhere a piece of colored cardstock that matches your pattern paper to your card base. Now, place your pattern paper over the colored cardstock and trace the outline of the tags with a pencil so you’ll know where to stamp the sentiments or place the images or stickers. (I didn’t do it this way and it was more difficult as a result).

Once the outlines are done, stamp your sentiments or images or place your stickers or die cut shapes and erase the pencil lines. You are ready to adhere the pattern paper over the images. Everything should be aligned perfectly. Before you adhere the tags, you’ll want to score each one just below the little hole at the top of the tag so they flip open easily. The last step is to adhere the tags into the space where they were originally cut out of the pattern paper…just like a puzzle. The trick here is to only apply adhesive to the top of each tag so the rest of it will open. To top it off, I used some Crystal Nuvo Drops in black to cover the open holes in each of the tags.

To add some pizzazz to this card, I used the long “string” die with some gold mirrored cardstock to create two thin borders which I adhered to the left side of the card. This is not how this die was intended to be used, but I like to use things in creative ways, and this was what my mind came up with for this die and card.

Love You Card with SCT Sampler for February 2022

Hello Crafty Friends,

I’m making a sweet card that can be used anytime for someone you love! The supplies came from the SCT sampler for February 2022. That is the kit from Scrapbook and Cards Today. They put together a kit of samples each month from current craft companies. It’s fun to get these because each one is current and also because it’s nice to get new goodies each month!

In the video, you’ll see that I used the patterned paper and a piece of ephermera from the kit, but I also used a butterfly sticker from Dollar Tree and some tag dies from Amazon.com, shown below.

I chose to embellish my card with some purple paper embellishments (the purple heart and dots) using my own purple cardstock.
