Spellbinders April 2018 Blog Hop (+Giveaways)

by | Apr 18, 2018 | Backgrounds, Blog, Giveaway, Happy Thoughts, Spellbinders, Watercolor

Good morning! I am excited to be participating in the Spellbinders April 2018 Blog Hop! Spellbinders dies are amazing. Many emboss as well as superbly die cut. The level of detail from a Spellbinders die alone is pretty dang impressive. I’m pretty confident the first dies I ever owned were by Spellbinders. Pretty classic and identifiable with that copper look!

Today, I am sharing a project from Wine Country by Stacey Caron. Other stops on the hop will be showcasing Blooming Garden by Marisa Job, Little Loves by Sharyn Sowell and Folk Art by Lene Lok. So. Much. Goodness!

Wine is so trendy these days, I think it is smart to have a glass or two, err…. I mean, a card or two in the stash. Yep, that’s it, a card or two!

I created this card by die cutting the wine glass from Wine Charms in Smooth Bristol paper and coloring with Arteza watercolor brush markers. After drying, I coated the wine colored area with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Gloss Pen for sparkle. An accent line was drawn with my White Signo pen to emulate a glass reflection.

I then cut the beautiful Decorative Accent white panel, also from Smooth Bristol, and adhered in place over the black and white Petite Patterns paper. After popping with the wine glass with dimensional adhesive, I stamped the sentiment from Barrel of Sentiments. I was able to apply the sentiment after the raised glass given the stamp is a thicker, cling style stamp. When stamping this way, especially if using a Misti style stamp positioner, be sure that there is no ink on the lid that could transfer to your project.

I’ve also added a few sequins for a touch of something extra.
