Spellbinders & Simon Hurley Inspiration

Saturday, February 10, 2024

Hello friends. I am excited to share this pair of cards with you today that feature lots of fun products from Spellbinders including the brand-new Spring Magnolias Press Plate & die set from Simon Hurley.

To get started, I took three of the press plates from the Spring Magnolias set and instead of using my BetterPress system with them, i foiled them using Pewter foil. I love how your press plates offer up double duty.

After my foiling was done, I took my panels and blended on various shades of blue Distress inks, all linked at the bottom of the post. I then embossed my panels using the Bamboo Trellis 3D embossing folder. I wasn't paying attention, and I used the "wrong" side of the embossing folder, so my panels are more debossed than embossed but i am okay with that. It still adds texture. I then took some Distress Mica Stain in the Wonderland color and added just a bit of splatter with it. It's subtle because the color matches the background quite well.

I trimmed down my panels and rounded the corners using my Corner Chomper. I added them with foam tape to white A2 notecards. I then added my sentiments which I also foiled. They are from the You are Everything Press Plates and die set. I die cut each of the words two more time for dimension. Some clear enamel dots finish off these cards.

I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for your visit and crafty hugs! ~ Alanna
