Spellbinders: Stylish Ovals

 Hey Friends!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

I have two projects to share with you today - both use projects from one of the newest releases from Spellbinders: Stylish Ovals.

This collection has so many lovely products - perfect for any special occasion.

Let's dive in!

This card uses the Stitched Floral Flip Frame die. I cut two frame pieces with the larger dies and then used the individual dies to create the pieced overlays. I used two copic markers to color the leaf portions of the frame (YG17 and. YG 05). I then using standard embroidery floss thread, and stitched on the individual pieces before gluing them on top of the frames.

I cut and scored a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base, and then adhered a piece of patterned paper from the Cheerful Occasions Paper Pad on top of the card base. 

I stamped a sentiment from the Fill My Heart Sentiments set and then trimmed that down and matted it on black cardstock from my scrap drawer. 

After applying liquid glue on to the back of my stitched and completed floral frames, I pressed them down to the front of the card to finish off the project!

For the next card, I used the Beautiful Butterflies 3D Embossing Folder. I cut a 4.25 inch x 5.5 inch panel from watercolor cardstock and then ran that through my diecutting machine with the embossing folder. Because this folder is a three dimensional folder, I had to experiment a little bit with my "sandwich method" to ensure I wasn't harming my machine. 

Once the panel was ready, I watercolored the raised portions of the panel. This took a lot of time but was worth the work for the end result!

After the watercoloring was completed, I cut and scored a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base and glued the watercolored panel on to the card base.

I wanted to keep the sentiment simple for this card because I didn't want to cover up the painting! So I used another sentiment from the Fill My Heart Sentiments set and repeated the method of trimming it down and matting it on black scrap cardstock. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to check out these projects today! I hope you'll visit the Spellbinders store to take a look at this collection and add some great staple pieces to your craft room!
