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.

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

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

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

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?

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!

Spellbinders Tallulah Frill Layering Frame | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

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

Spellbinders Tallulah Frill Layering Frame | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

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.
