Spellbinders February 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Spellbinders February 2018 Blog Hop @akossakovskaya #cardmaking #SpellbindersClubKits #Spellbinders

Hello friends! Excited to see you today on Spellbinders February 2018 Release Blog Hop! I am so honored to join this hop and to share with you my projects I made with the new dies. Spellbinders releases two new collections this month: Becca Feeken – Elegant 3D Vignettes and Sharyn Sowell – Flower Garden. And I had a chance to play with some Sharyn Sowell’s designs.

To celebrate the new release Spellbinders is giving away a $50 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners. Please leave a comment on Spellbinders blog by Sunday, February 18th 11:59 pm EDT for a chance to win. The winners will be announced in the blog hop post on Spellbinders blog the following day. And I will pick one lucky girl to get $25 gift certificate to Spellbinders blog — just leave a comment to this post!


The first card highlights new Card Creator Floral Panel Card Etched Dies Flower Garden by Sharyn Sowell. I like the floral backgrounds like this — you can color it with the watercolors, blend them with inks or just leave them as they are. I die cut the panel with these dies (one for flowers and one for scalloped rectangle) of the white card stock. I then foam mounted it on the white card base.

Next step, I die cut three rouses and for leaves from with new Shapeabilities Dimensional Floral Panel Etched Dies Flower Garden by Sharyn Sowell of watercolor paper and colored them with watercolors. The last detail is scalloped oval with the sentiment. I foam mounted it to the panel and placed colored elements under it.

Next card is my favorite! I had such a great pleasure working with Shapeabilities Dimensional Floral Panel Etched Dies Flower Garden by Sharyn Sowell. I die cut the wreath of watercolor paper and colored it with watercolors. The bow is from the same die set, I colored it with Copic markers. I wanted it look detailed not as blurry as the wreath.

I stamped the wood grain texture in light gray ink on the front panel and adhered it to the card base. The wreath is foam mounted to the panel and the bow is adhered with the dots of glue. I then white heat embossed the sentiment and foam mounted it to the card.

Have a great day and happy hopping!
