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.
