As promised today I am sharing new projects I have made! I thought this was a great opportunity to show some of the cards and projects I have made with dies and products form various companies I have bought over the last year or so but haven't been able to use or blog. I know that most crafters see something and buy it only for it to languish in their stash I know I'm terrible for this not being able to go into a craft shop without buying something.
Today's card is made using a Spellbinders die designed by Becca Feeken one of my favourite crafters and designers. A simple colour combination of ivory sky blue and periwinkle hopefully lets the beauty of the die shine.
I started by cutting the long die in the Spellbinders Swirl Bliss die set into a piece of ivory card four times does the length of the piece. I then backed the central 2 panels with sky blue and the outer 2 sections with baby blue card.
Next I matted and layers this onto more layers of the ivory, sky blue and baby blue to make the base card as shown. I added a strip of navy organza ribbon and finished it with a bow and some pearl swirls from my stash. I then made up the flower using spellbinders carnation shaded with broken china distress ink.
The sentiment (from my lily of the valley clear stamp set) is stamped on a stitched flag and shaded with the distress ink.
