Spellbinders | Sweet Street

Hello there, today I have two cards to share with you using the Spellbinders Sweet Street Collection by Tina Smith. This is such a fun collection that is perfect for birthdays and all different types of celebrations. A lot of the sets are interactive but as you will see with one of my cards, you don't have to use that element if you don't want to. 

My first card uses the Spellbinders Layer Cake Surprise Etched Dies. I started off by die cutting the elements from various shades of cardstock - C9 Ballet Slippers and Honeysuckle for the main cake, as well as the chocolate frosting from Hero Arts Chestnut Cardstock. The candle was cut from the same pink cardstock as the cake plus C9 Buttercup and PTI Summer Sunrise for the flame. The pieces of the cake connect inside each other so that you can pull them up behind the base layer of the cake when you pull on the candle. 

The frosting of the cake was adhered with small amounts of Barely Art Glue just along the bottom and sides so that it doesn't stick to the cake layers behind. I did make the candle and flame three layers thick so that it gave it some more stability. For the card base, I placed the Taylored Expressions Rectangle Masking Stencil on to an A2 white card base and blended Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Distress Ink inside. The mask was removed and the cake adhered on top.

I added small pieces of foam tape to the very bottom of the cake and sides so that I could adhere it to the card but the cake pieces still move. The flowers are from the Spellbinders Party Cupcake Pocket Etched Dies (see below). The sentiment, from the Spellbinders Everyday Sentiments II Glimmer Hot Foil Plate Set was foiled on to black cardstock with Silver Foil. It was cut out and added to the cake with foam tape. 

My next card uses the Spellbinders Party Cupcake Pocket Etched Dies. These dies work so that you can lift the cupcake out from the wrapper but for my card today, I didn't use that part. I started off by die cutting the elements form various shades of cardstock - the cupcake from Hero Arts Sand Cardstock, the frosting from Hero Arts Chestnut Cardstock, the wrapper from Hero Arts Paradise Cardstock, candle from C9 Ballet Slippers Cardstock and flame from C9 Buttercup Cardstock. They were all adhered together using Barely Art Glue

I took a white A2 card base and using the same masking stencil as the first card, blended on Tim Holtz Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink. The cupcake was then added on top with foam squares. I took the flower from the set and cut it from C9 Ballet Slippers and Honeysuckle Cardstock. The leaves are from C9 Sprout Cardstock. The pieces were adhered to the cupcake with more glue. 

The sentiment from the Spellbinders Everyday Sentiments II Glimmer Hot Foil Plate Set was foiled on to black cardstock with Silver Foil. It was cut in to strips and added to the card with more foam squares. To finish off, I added Crystal Glaze to the frosting and also the flame. I also added Spellbinders Silver Mix Color Essentials Gems to both cards.

I don't make a huge amount of interactive cards but when I do, I like dies like these as they are simple to put together. I don't have a stamp that says pull otherwise I would have added a little tag to the candle on the first card, so instead, I will write in the card to say pull the candle! Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you are well and staying safe still. Take care! 


  1. Oh this is super cute! I love a good bit of die cutting, so this is perfect - love that it's interactive too! xx

  2. So much fun! The interactive card is so cool but the thing that stole my heart is the little flower on the cupcake! So so cute! Great cards! ❤❤
