Spellbinders | Easter Cards. Die Cutting and Stencilling 3 Ways. Video

Hello there! What I love Spellbinders dies for most – is the ability to use them beyond just simple die cutting. Using them one can also emboss and stencil and this is exactly what I did to create simple and elegant Easter cards I am sharing today.

I wanted to mention that as of September 2016 I am working as a trainee at Spellbinders office in Phoenix. While I do a lot of work for them and create lots of different projects I am only sharing what I truly love made using their products here on my blog.

CARD DETAILS

I started working on my card by die-cutting several egg shapes out of white cardstock. I used border die for some and combined border with the decorative insert for other. When you combine insert with the border you get a beautiful filigree egg that can be also embossed.

After embossing I kept the die cut in the die and lightly blended ink through the die to add a hint of color to my piece. I also used same ink color and blended ink onto a solid shape. I used a heavier hand and in some cases used a darker shade of ink to do my ink blending.

Next, I adhered filigree die cut onto solid to create one beautiful Easter egg. I went with traditional Easter colors and used soft pink, soft blue and soft green colors (I am listing all colors I used at the end of my post in Supplies section). I stamped a sentiment that reads “God is our refuge & strength” in black ink and foam mounted it over the egg cluster.

ADDITIONAL EXAMPLES

I enjoyed working with this die so much, I made several additional examples. The pink & gray card below is a shaker – filigree die was cut in a white cardstock panel and a formed into a simple shaker with the help of foam adhesive. I also added pink ombre ink blended panel behind the shaker window for additional interest.

Here’s another example of a card I made using the Filigree Egg die – a window card. After creating an A2 top folding card base I used a filigree insert and cut it in the front panel only (be sure to open your card base when cutting to only cut through the front).

Next I combined both filigree and solid dies and created a white die cut out of cardstock and another one out of double sided adhesive fun foam. After blending light blue ink onto the white cardstock die cut I adhered it onto the card.
