Using Spellbinders Labels
Okay... here's the scoup... These cards are for a couple of challenges... and I will tell you all about them as I go along... but the main idea for the layout of this card I got from Edna's blog... I just fell in love with the way she created this card... and so I cased it... I did change a lot of things but used the spellbinder as the focal point on each card..
This card.. .For Color Challenge Betty gave us three great colors... Lovely Lilac, Gable Green and Cameo Coral with the dessert being clear cardstock... (which I didn't have any of... in fact I didn't even have any cardstock that matched these colors... so I went to my ink pads... and that is what I used.)
So now what to do... and when I turned around.. there were my Tapestry stamps staring at me... screaming ... USE ME... NOW... so that is what I used.. perfect for these cards...
I cut some different Lables using my spellbinder... and then started to play... and as you will see I came with with two cards... and still have one of these left to use on another card.. I used one of the Asian Cuddlebug embossing folders for the background... and then using my tapesty stamps created a pretty floral design inside... added a little LILAC bird with some diamond dust on it's back..
A Card is finished!!!!! I also used it for CAS65... where the theme is May Flowers... CAS stands for Clean and Simple... which this one IS... I have a very difficult time doing CAS cards.. but I have done it... and enjoyed it too..
Now this one is for two other challenges... Also for the color challenge CC269 and for TLC271 Which was to create a card using embossed vellum... with any kind of embossing we desided... so I used again the Asian Cherry blossom folder... adn then added the ribbon and tiny flowers along with a pearl in the center of each one... Then when I put my spellbinder on the top... I loved it... but it was missing something... and so another LILAC bird on it's nest was born... and it was finished...
Down at the bottom you will see another piece of vellum.. and I added a border of vellume lace using a Martha Stewart punch...
This time I used the Tapestry stamps on the frame, vs inside... I like it both ways... and I did have fun with all these challenges... so thanks again to all the hostesses of these challenges for all the work they put into them..
Have a wonderful day... and create something special..
Love, Light and Peace... Bonnie
