Video: Spellbinders Blog Hop (+ Giveaway)

Alcohol ink. I’m obsessed. It is good to know I’m not alone. It tends to be experiencing a resurgence in popularity across papercrafters and fine artists. I could’t wait to pair the inks with Spellbinders Shapeabilites dies from the Good Vibes Only by Stephanie Low line. Ah-mazing! Whoot, whoot – I’ve created a video tutorial for you, as well!

Shapeabilites are etched dies that are available in thousands of various shapes for that perfect papercrafting project. They will cut single sheets of cardstock, vellum or other thin materials into beautifully detailed designs in a instant. My favorite machine to use them with is the Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cutting machine. It is a manual crank machine and makes partial die cutting, embossing and other fun techniques a breeze.

Giveaways: Spellbinders is giving away a $50 gift certificate to a commentor on their blog and a $25 gift certificate to a commenter from this blog. Hop along to see if you can find any more! Giveaway details can be found near the bottom of the post with full blog hop list.

If you’re having any issues viewing this video, please try watching it HERE in HD on YouTube.

The Spellbinders Flowers Whisper is a set of 2 dies. I used the background die to cut the shape out of standard weight white inked Yupo paper (heavy weight does not die cut well). The detailed outline was cut from 80# Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I assembled the layers together onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card panel that I had stamped with sentiments from The Ton Stamps Scripty Sayings (retired set). I finished the card with a sentiment strip from Simon Says Stamp Thankful Heart stamp set.

The video tutorial above includes the complete play by play, including how I added the Nuvo Radiant Gold Gilding Flakes with Tombow Mono Multi liquid adhesive.

The Spellbinders Feathers in the Wind and Heart Like a Wildflower dies make an awesome duo. The sharpness of the feathers are a pretty amazing juxtaposition to the roundness of the Wildflowers. I die cut a few more pieces from the inked Yupo paper (I still have half a sheet left, yay!) and combined them with a gold glittery cardstock. I’m loving the result. Feathers are hot this season and this set is striking! I applied the die cuts to an 80# Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock panel and adhered that to a Blush Mix Prefolded card base from Hero Arts. The bases are colored o the outside with white in the middle. Perfect for an extra pop of color on card, and prefolded, yes please!! Sentiment and sequins are from The Ton Stamps.

For a detailed how to, I’ve got a video tutorial for you!

BONUS PROJECT:

I just could not put this set down. For this gorgeous bloom I paired the Spellbinders Flowers Whisper with the Platinum 6 die cutting and embossing machine and Copic markers. The Platinum 6 dry embosses like a dream! I ran the outline die through with 80# Neenah Solar White Cardstock and then used the embossed lines as a guide to color flick style. I think it turned out pretty fabulous and I love how you can see each level of color. Blending is beautiful, but the is something a little magical about seeing each stroke of the marker. I have to admit though, I thought it looked a hot mess before I applied a black cardstock outline on top of the completed coloring. I finished the card of on a prefolded Hero Arts card base, a sentiment from The Ton Stamps Coming Up Daises and added a few Grey Mist Nuvo Drops. The grey is translucent but offers just enough color to really make an impression.

This card is not included in the video tutorial, but if you are interested, let me know and I can certainly pull one together!
