Hello, Tracy Shultz, The Hopeful Crafter here with a cute card that reminds me of my dog. This card was created using the "I'll Be Watching You" Stamp #SD957: https://techniquejunkies.com/ill-be-watching-you/   

Technique Junkies carries a wide variety of stamps for the dog or cat lover, as well as stamps for all occasions: https://techniquejunkies.com/

I created a process video on my YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/NSYCKGwMNJA

 
 To create my card:
  • I first stamped the dog and sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. 
  • I then die cut the stamped image using a stitched rectangle die from my stash. 
  • Next I used the "Paws" Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs https://shrsl.com/3l9j8 to create the background panel. I used Stone Blue Catherine Pooler Ink and applied it through the stencil with a foam domed ink blender. 
  • I used the same Stone Blue ink to ink the four sides of an A2 Card Base (4.25" x 5.5"), creating the perfectly match card base. 
  • To finish, I used the residual ink that remained on my domed ink blender and ink blended the edges of the stamped and die cut dog and sentiment rectangle. I popped that up on the stenciled background using foam tape.

Happy 20th Birthday Spellbinders! | New Birthday Celebration Collection | Hot Foiling | So Many Candles

 Happy 20th Birthday Spellbinders!

Shop New Spellbinders: https://shrsl.com/2pq20

@teamspellbinders #Spellbinders #neverstopmaking  

#glimmerhotfoilsystem 

Hello and welcome! I am super excited today to have been invited by Spellbinders to participate in their 20th Birthday Celebration by creating projects using their brand new Birthday Celebration Collection. 

My card features the gorgeous new hot foil plate: So Many Candles (GLP-323) and a sentiment from the new Birthday Unboxing Glimmer hot foil plates (GLP-324). 
This hot foil plate measures 5.75" x 3.75" inches and is great for an A2 Card (4.25" x 5.5") or a Mini Slimline Card (3.5" x 6.5").  My card is an A2 sized card. To create my card I used Spellbinders Rainbow Hot Foil (GLF-042)
After hot foiling, I trimmed the So Many Candles panel with Spellbinders Essential Rectangles Cutting Die (S5-411).  I used the dotted rectangle die. I adhered the die cut panel to a piece of 4" x 5.25" gold foil card stock. Then, I adhered the layered panels to a navy blue A2 card (4.25" x 5.5") base.
 I used Spellbinders Rainbow Hot Foil and the new  Birthday Unboxing Glimmer hot foil plates (GLP-324). They consist of two Happy Birthday Sentiments and seven mini or sub sentiments as well as two cutting dies to trim the sentiments. For my card, I used the scripty Happy Birthday hot foiled sentiment.
I used foam tape to pop the sentiment up from the card. Here's a photo of my finished card:
Make sure you check out the new Birthday Celebration collection from Spellbinders. The collection includes new stamps, dies and ephemera in addition to the hot foil items. Be sure to follow my blog and my YouTube channel as I will be posting more of my creations from this collection over the next few weeks. Thank you very much for visiting my blog today.
