Spellinders. August Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello dear Spellbinders’ fans!

I’m so excited to join today’s blog hop and share my inspiration with you!

Today we’re celebrating the release of two new collections: Special Moments by Marisa Job and Inked Messages by Stephanie Low.

They are gourgeous, aren’t they?

I created three cards for today using several dies from Special Moments Collection. They are almost the same but I wated to create different bascgrounds for them.

To create this background I used dark grey cardstock and added a touch of black and white ink to it. It looks like marbel stone to me. I used here Floral Olav S5-378 and sentiment from Special Day Frame S5-374.

I guess the lattice oval is my favorite die from the release. It looks so gourgeous and pretty!

For the next card I decided to create dimentional background and adhered several strips to it which I die cut using dies from Swirl Border S4-942.

I like the flowes from Floral Olav S5-378, they add so much to the card. There is small, medium large flower in the kit and also a beautiful branch.

For the background of my last card I’ve used scoring technique, which I’ve “stolen” from Yana Smakula) I scored rechtangle panel, covered it with blue ink and adhered it onto the card base.

It looks to me like a wooden back ground.

I hope you liked the new collections of dies as much as I did. And I also want to know which card do you like the best. Tell me that in the comment section below.

Thanks a lot for spending so much time with me!

See you very soon!

  1. Your cards are beautiful. Absolutely love the flowers. Thank you for sharing your talents with all of us.

  2. Such pretty cards. I like the gray background with the pretty colored flowers.

  3. So pretty! Love both color combos of flowers you did.
    These new dies are so pretty!!

  4. I like how the two color choices look SO different. Love the seasonal change.

  5. Your card is totally darling! I love the shape of those flower dies. Your flowers are beatufiul! Thanks so much for the chance to win.

  6. I love your design all three ways. I am especially happy that you did the “dark” version. The background is beautiful, and those colors so rich. I need to challenge myself to do florals in colors other than the ones I naturally gravitate toward. Thank you for the nudge in that direction.

  7. Beautiful cards! I love the first one – looks like fall to me and the marble background is very nice.

  8. I love both versions of your card. The cards are so pretty!! You did such a wonderful job!!

  10. Beautiful cards. Love your colors.

  11. There are some lovely stamps and dies in these collections. That Oval trellis die from Marisa is particularly beautiful! And your card inspiration is wonderful!

  12. I like the last one with the scored technique (wood look) for the background best. That technique is so versatile just by changing the color you can change the whole feel of the card.

  13. Stunning cards! So fun to start with a classic design and change up the backgrounds. Gorgeous backgrounds and dimension.

  14. Beautiful cards. the colors and the styles are gorgeous.

  15. The background on the first card looks
    like concrete. The wreath of fall flowers
    is gorgeous. Great cards.
