Spellbinders November 2017 Blog Hop

SECOND POST of the day. Scroll down for Altenew Marker Release post or click HERE



Hello friends!
You must be here from Simon Hurley's blog.

I am SO EXCITED to be part of this hop with Spellbinders.
If you have known me for a while, you'd know I run a small business by the name of Glitter & Swirls where I take on commission work (custom orders for cards etc). 90% of the work I do there has a Spellbinders die on it! That is how much I love and use Spellbinders dies.

As you know Spellbinders has released the following collections this month:


Today I picked out three dies from the Chantilly Paper Lace collection by Becca Feeken who I adore immensely.

I have three cards to share with you that uses a mix of three die sets from this collection.

For my first card, I used dies from Spellbinders Shapeabilities Annabelle's Trousseau Layering Frame and Hannah Elise Layering Frame.

The frames are so gorgeous that you really don't have to do much on your card.
After die cutting the frames, I popped them on the card base with foam tapes to add dimension.
I don't know if it's visible or not but I added pearls around the smallest oval frame and four on each corner of the largest frame.

To make the layer that is behind the Hannah Elise frame a bit darker, I inked it with Antique Linen.

I stamped a sentiment from Hero Arts and added it in a banner style with an arch. I also added two pearls on both ends of this banner.
I am always blown away by how intricate these designs are!

Next up is a similar card, I just changed the colours and added a bow plus flowers.

I made this one in white! Doesn't the card look absolutely different by changing just a couple of things?

Spellbinders Shapeabilities Annabelle's Trousseau Layering Frame | Hannah Elise Layering Frame  | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Here I coloured the layer behind Hannah Elise frame with a mix of Dusty Concord and Wilted Violet distress inks. I did not add the small oval die but instead added a large sentiment stamp by Wplus9.

I tied a double looped bow and added a small bunch of flowers to add a more feminine touch.

Spellbinders Tallulah Frill Layering Frame | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

This card features the Tallulah Frill Layering Frame. This is such a beautiful die set!

I added pearls on the rectangle floral frame on every flower. It looked so pretty!
The sentiment is from JustRite Stampers.

I inked the frames with Tattered Rose distress ink.

I added a double looped bow on this card as well along with a bunch of small flowers and one bigger flower which I coloured with Worn Lipstick distress ink.

That is all from my side.

On to the good stuff now.
