Spellbinders..and now to play!!

Well I wanted to use our new stamps, and had a magazine article to write, so thought I would dig out the brand new (to my web site anyhow) Spellbinders. I love these, and they allow you to really play.

First I stamped and coloured our new stamp. The detail on these is really incredible. I really like them (I can say that as Sandy drew them!). I coloured the image using Spectrum Noirs.

For the background I used one of the embossing folders, I think this one was the Walrus and the Carpenter, and then set to cutting. I used the Parisian Accents, the border I cut twice from coredinations card, and interlocked the borders together. This is easy to do, but gives the border a completely different look.

I then cut two of the smaller accents, these are incredibly versatile. Again I interlocked them, and tucked one piece behind my main image to again transform the look of the die cut.

Dont throw away your scraps!! For those who like to fiddle and mess, I used the waste to add an embellishment to the left and right hand side of the card, finishing with a little drop of the white enamel accents.

No card is complete without a touch of ribbon, and I love the crinkle edge ribbon. A bow looked to much for my delicate image, so I opted to use just a knot, which I think is the perfect finishing touch.

Altogether a fun card to make, especially combining the wonderful Spellbinders with our new stamps.
