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.

Father's Day Card - Technique Junkies

 

 Hello, Tracy Shultz, the Hopeful Crafter here, sharing a Father's Day card that I created with two new stamps from the June 2022 release: Because I'm Your Dad and Father and Daughter stamps:  https://techniquejunkies.com/may-2022-new-stamp-release/

Save 10% with my code: TJ10Tracy

I created a video on my YouTube Channel which describes my step-by-step process: https://youtu.be/4Jg18B-LCX0
 
 To create my card, I used Versafine Clair Acorn ink to stamp the Because I'm Your Dad background stamp on a piece of off white/ivory paper. I used a stitched rectangle die to trim the stamped background panel to an A2 size (4.25" x 5.5"). Next I used Copic markers to color the Father and Daughter stamp and I fussy cut the image. I used a yellow Copic Marker to color a die cut piece of vellum. I used liquid glue to adhere the vellum to the background panel. Then I glued the Father and Daughter to the Vellum.  I plan to give this card to my dad for Father's Day.

Check out my YouTube Channel where I have a new video featuring the new release:  https://youtu.be/vG2wRnLI0VY


Cat Lady - Watercolored with Catherine Pooler inks

To create my card, I first stamped the Cat Lady with Versafine Onyx Black ink. Then, I water colored with these colors of inks by Catherine Pooler: Twilight, Pucker Up, Cummerbund and Serene. I applied sparkle pen to the Cat Lady's turban. Then I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut out the image. I heat embossed by sentiment with hot pink embossing powder and trimmed it out, along with a piece of hot pink card stock to create a mat layer behind the sentiment. I stamped the background with pucker ink then I rotated the paper and stamped again with Cummerbund ink, giving an offset design. I used a stitched rectangle die to cut out the background panel. My final layer is pink pearlescent paper, also die cut with a stitched rectangle die. 

Here's a look at the amazing new stamp release. If you are like me, and you must have all the new release stamps, there is a "Gotta Have it all Bundle" which is discounted:
