Video Tutorial ...

HI Everybody,

Here as promised is the video tutorial to show you how to get this look using the Glass Effects  from Spellbinders  and it is such an easy idea to recreate.

Choose the colors that you would like your card to be in and a separate color for the frame. I have used Silver Mirror Card for mine

Keep the colors pastel for all your female cards and go for the dark and dramatic for the male ones

Over the last couple of days I have shown you some color ways and ideas.

You can make your base card to fit the panel or you can add another to add to the top as I have done here.

On this card I have used the A2 Filigree Delight  in silver mirror card to frame the colored panel

And I have chosen one of the colors in the card to match the ribbon.

The sentiment on any of these cards can say exactly what you want it to say.

Add your colored panel to a larger base and it will look just as good.

Ring the changes by using Gold Mirror Card or even glitter card for another look.

Enjoy the tutorial for this fun technique.... it's not long

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

    Well done Christina

  7. You always make it look so simple.


  8. Been waiting on this tutorial. You have WOW'd me again. Love this tutorial and all the others I have seen. You make such beautiful cards and these are no exception. Thank you for sharing.

  9. Thanks for the video, Christina...isn't it easy when you know how :). I've been on a quick search for both the dies and managed to find them for £9.99, a very good price for a new Spellbinders die. They are now both on my die wish list :). x

  10. Absolutely fabulous Christina.I Love this effect and thank you for making the video for me /us who can't follow written instructions :-)
    Have a nice evening ,Maria x

  11. Hi Christina
    These cards certainly unusual as in the stained glass effect. I look forward to seeing the video that you have made.

  12. Thank you for taking the time to make a video of this technique. I have neither of these dies but I'm looking forward to trying it with one of the ones I do have to see if it's as effective. Lovely cards :)

  13. Your inspiration is truly amazing Christina
    Kind regards

  14. Wow simply gorgeous they are and the video too!

  15. Truly beautiful cards Christina! I'm partial to the one you covered with the Spellbinder's Die! Love your tutorials. TFS.

  16. So innovative with increasing the multitude of ways Spellbinders dies can be used and mixed and matched! Clever and creative lady.

  17. Love these gorgeous cards. I had no idea the die could be used so beautifully. Well done.

  18. Hiya, Such a beautiful card, but then again, All your work is stunning. I need your help with Spellbinder Dies. Mollyssquare has the Labels 39 Nestabilities, Decorative Accents and Decorative Elements for 13.99USD each which is an amazing price. I don't understand completely the system of Spellbinders. Do I need to purchase all three sets to make a card? Can I purchase either the Accents or Elements and make a card? Or do I need to purchase the nestabilities and either the Accents or Elements to use to make a card?

  19. Fantastic Christina, these are great cards to use for males too. I love the other two cards you have done as well.
