Spellbinders | Let's Celebrate

Hello there, today I have two cards to share with you using the Let's Celebrate Collection from Spellbinders, designed by Yana Smakula. 

The collection is beautiful and features press plates as well as a die set. I used the press plates for foiling on these cards but the plates would look beautiful with the letterpress technique too!

For my first card, I started off by die cutting the Spellbinders Peony Celebration Etched Die. I cut the flower layer from white cardstock twice. The first time I cut it, I tried not to add to much pressure so that it kept the inside pieces of the flower intact. The second time, I cut it perfectly, so that I just got the outline. I coloured the bottom (intact) layer using Copic Markers (V09, V17, V15 & V01).

I then adhered the outline layer on top to hide the colouring that went outside the lines. I die cut the base layer/shadow from vellum and adhered that behind. I took a black US A2 sized card base and taking Spellbinders Splatter White Opaque Watercolor (adding a little water to loosen it up), splattered it on to the card base before setting it aside to dry. 

Once dry, the flower piece was adhered on top using thin foam tape. I then foiled a sentiment from the Spellbinders Let's Celebrate Sentiments Press Plate & Die Set onto black cardstock using Spellbinders White Foil. It was cut into a strip and adhered to the card using more thin foam tape. 

For my next card, I took the Spellbinders Peony Background Press Plate and foiled it onto white cardstock using Spellbinders Black Foil

I then coloured the flowers and leaves using Copic Markers. I used V09, V17, V15 & V01 for the purple flowers, RV66, RV55 & RV52 for the pink flowers and G28, YG17, YG23 & YG01 for the leaves and stems. 

The panel was cut down and adhered to a US A2 sized white card base with tape runner adhesive. I then foiled the sentiment from the Spellbinders Let's Celebrate Sentiments Press Plate & Die Set onto white cardstock using more black foil. It was die cut out using the coordinating die and then I cut another two layers of the die from white cardstock to add dimension. It was adhered to the card with thin foam tape.
