Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Mix & Match your Spellbinders ...

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is a real mixture of dies all put together to make one design, and the only point I am trying to make is that any Spellbinders will go with any other.

The dies in your sets are in various sizes and Spellbinders number them with number one (#1) being the smallest and using that numbering these are the dies I have used.

So for the base I started with #7 from each set of 5x7 Matting Basics  A & B  and #6 from A and layered up the pink patterned card and I have also lined the inside of the card with some cream

Then I used  #3  Heirloom Rectangle  for the next layer in pink.

The lovely Gold layer  is #5 Gold Labels Four and then topped again in pink with the next size #4  in the same set.

From the patterned  paper I cut the largest  #7 from Opulent Ovals   and then  topped that with  #2 from Elegant Ovals

The central sentiment circle is simply a bought topper that I stuck in the middle.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts   and if you are new to cardmaking then WOC do a fabulous line in starter packs  to get you going

I have used Roses, Rosebuds, Tulips, Sweetheart Blossoms, Cosmos Daisies and white leaves.

I like to add some sparkle to my flowers and I use the Iridescent Glitter from Glitter Magic  ... it is the one called Chameleon that is my favorite as it blends with any color scheme you are using.

Now I was in  a hurry to take this photo and so I did not allow the glue to dry on the flowers once I had sprinkled on the glitter ... but it does dry  clear and flat and all you are left with is the sparkle on the blooms ... Promise !!

All being well I should be back on yout TV screens tomorrow with three shows on Create and Craft. They are scheduled for 8am 12 noon and 5pm so I hope you will join me and maybe send in your emails 

And finally a little reminder to Pearl Hudson ... Can you email me your address please so that I can send you the card ...

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

    Sorry but this one is a bit too fussy for my taste. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

  5. Christina, just getting caught up after being away for a few days. All the layers of Spellbinders is so fun to look at. I like to do that sometimes as well, but you've really done them up right. Happy to hear you will be on tomorrow, I'll be watching!.

  11. Wow Christina, that's a card and a half to be sure :). I think I love it and it's the kind of effect I want to try to get when I make my sister's anniversary card in a couple of months...looks like I need to stock up on some dies before then :). It's such a change from your usual cards but is a great way of showing that all the dies play well together. x

  12. Who would of thought that so many dies can be combined with each other and make a lovely card...well done Christina
    Looking forward in seeing you back at Create and Craft

I'm hoping to catch up with the recording of your show tomorrow night. Best wishes Christina and I know you'll knock their socks off. (I'd be afraid to say 'break a leg' it fills ME with anxiety!)

  23. Oh Christina this card is magic., you have shown off the layers so well and to explain how the numbering of sizes on dies is great (I didn't know how to tell until you mentioned it on one of your previous videos), the colours are beautiful, I have quite a few Spellbinders dies but I need to get some more of the larger ones, which would you recommend?
