Hello everyone! I hope you are finding joy in the day. Today I am partnering with Spellbinders for their 20th Anniversary and their new Birthday Celebrations release. For 20 years, Spellbinders has been providing the crafting community with amazing products for us to express our creativity with. And one things for sure – there’s a big party going on inside this release! There are stamps, dies, embossing folders, and of course some hot foil plates. Let’s join the party and explore!
When I saw this adorable “Balloon Party Animal” die, I chuckled at how cute it is! I love that the die set has pieces for layering the parts of the balloon, which helps create dimension. The pieces can be shaded with ink as I did here as another way to add depth. When you pair it with the “Hand Drawn Loops” Glimmer foil plate from the collection, and you have a beautiful card combination. To make the balloon animal have some movement, I used the pop-up technique that Jennifer McGuire recently shared. This technique recycles some plastic packaging to create springs. When you pull the card out of the envelope, the balloon animal moves and springs up which is a great feature.
For another card I created for the release, I used the “Stitched Fringe Cake” die set. Instead of stitching on the cake, I covered some of the stitching holes with gems. I used the solid hot foil plate create a metallic background layer, and I cut the cake plate and candles out of the middle of that. So it was a 2 for 1! For both cards, I used scrap cardstock from my stash to create the elements and layers. I used 2 layers for the fringed cake so that dimension was created. The Happy Birthday sentiment was included with my Glimmer Foil System.
Here the products from the release that I used for these cards.
Be sure to check out these sets and a whole lot more on the Spellbinders website. I’ll be back tomorrow with more inspiration and a video. Until next time…Enjoy!
