Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

June 13, 2016

International Ambassadors Informal Blog Hop

Hi Everybody,

Here we are again with another International Ambassadors Blog Hop and we would like to say "Thank You" to all of you who take part in this.

We try to do this hop once a month and use a different theme each time to showcase some of the beautiful dies from Spellbinders

It is our way to show you the style that each of us has and hopefully you will enjoy what we come up with.

For this month we decided to use the dies by Seth Apter who is one of the licensed designers for Spellbinders

The die I chose to use is  Splatter Proof  and I have used Brusho Crystal Colours and sequins to get the look.

I added yellow, orange and red randomly on wet card and allowed the colours to spread on their own on a large piece of card.

I used part for my background and the other I cut with the Splatter Proof die. After adding the background panel I added the die cuts so that the colours would show up and dotted sequins around in blending tones

Please pop along to my talented friends and see what they have come up with this month for your delight, and please leave us a comment so that we know you have visited ... See you again next month for another IA Informal Blog Hop

  18. Very interesting card, I can see using this background and combining it with lots of other elements. Love the Brusho.

  19. Hi Christina

  20. Hi Christina. Lovely bright card to start the week.

  21. Lovely card Christina. Think that die goes well with the Brusho's. Will certainly have to put that on my wish list. I have at last tried out my Brusho's and really like them and think this die would be really good to have with them. Thank you for sharing this with us.

  22. Hello Christina, I think the card is brilliant. It's just perfect for a male card. Which is something I myself struggle with. So, well done have a great day.

  23. Christina I love this. Fantastic background and really love how you used the dies.
