It’s my turn to share a video post on the Spellbinders blog today. Next week it’s all about Edgeabilities on the Spellbinders blog. I thought it would be cool to create Chevron strips with the Ric Rac die from the Classic Edge One die kit.

The current CAS-ual Fridays challenge called us to make a masculine card. I think even with the rhinestones I added, this card fits the bill.

I hope you have time to check out the card and video. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

I created this card last week for the CAS challenge on Spitcoast, the CAS-ual Friday challenge and that week’s CAS(E) this Sketch!. I started by cutting three leaves with the new MFT Falling Leaves Die-namic dies out of 7 Gypsies Conservatory paper. The edges of the leaves were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, layered together with foam adhesive squares and tied on top with black embroidery thread.

The bottom right and top left of a  3″ x 5″ piece of Teresa Collins Spring Fling patterned paper were rounded, the edges were sanded and the paper was stitched to a 1/8″ bigger piece of black cardstock. The layers were adhered to the card base, a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half.

A sentiment from the new Falling Leaves stamp set was stamped in Jet Black Archival ink on the bottom right of the card. The leaves were adhered to the upper right hand side of the card. Black Baby Bling Rhinestones were adhered above and underneath the leaves to finish off that card.

Thanks so much for looking! Have a wonderful day!

Today’s tutorial on Splitcoast is written by the wonderful Stacy Morgan. She is showing us how to create little treat holder that look like Hershey’s Kisses. I shot the video and create a Halloween treat holder…What else but a Halloween project can I showcase today, right?

I started by cutting two hearts out of Kraft cardstock with the largest of the Classic Heart Nestabilities dies. They were first stamped with the smallest Distressed Diamonds background in Cloud White VersaMagic Ink. Once that dried, I stamped the star banner from Primitive Pumpkins over it in Jet Black Archival ink.

A pumpkin was cut out of Neenah Solar White cardstock with one of the Primitive Pumpkin Die-namic dies, and one of the pumpkins was stamped over it in Tea Leaves and Pumpkin Spice VersaMagic Ink. Lizard Bazzill Textured Cardstock was cut with the Flourish Die-namics die. The flourish and the pumpkin were adhered to the treat holder front and a button was tied to the pumpkin with silver cord.

A sentiment of the Primitive Pumpkins set was stamped in Jet Black Archival Ink on a white strip of cardstock and tied on to the Hershey’s Kiss with more silver cord.


Here is a video for the visual learner:

It’s my turn to share on the Spellbinders blog again. This time I used a Medallion Die D-Lites die. I created the cards for the current CAS-ual Fridays challenge (use Kraft) and the CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

I hope you have time to check out the post! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
