Spellbinders | Colored Cardstock Poppies Card. Blog Hop + Giveaway (Now Closed)

Hello everyone and thank you so much for joining us today for a very first Spellbinders inspirational blog hop! There are 3 new collections that are being released this month from Spellbinders and there are a lot of talented designers joining this hop and sharing gorgeous projects using various products from these new releases.

I picked the Spellbinders Classics – Lavender & Poppies collection to share with you as it’s one of my favorite. This collection includes a number of dies that feature stunning images of poppies and lavender in various interpretations.

As of September 2016 I work as an in-house creative designer at Spellbinders office in Phoenix. While I do a lot of work for them and create a number of different projects I am only sharing what I truly love made using their products here on my blog. I do not and never will share projects or mention products I not love.

CARD DETAILS

I had the pleasure with working with the Lavender & Poppies (Spellbinders Classics) collection back during Summer as I made all the projects you can find on the packaging of these dies. It was quite a challenge, but I had lots of fun bringing all of these dies to life.

The card I picked to share today is the one I like best. I die-cut & embossed the poppy out of green and red cardstock. While keeping the red die cut in the die I stencilled a bit of red ink over it to help the petals pop. To darken the centers I used my black Copic marker and simply colored the center of the flowers black.

I snipped the red flowers off the red stems and foam mounted them onto the green stems to complete my flowers.

To finish this card I picked pretty patterned paper (unfortunately, I don’t remember the exact name or manufacturer of the patterned paper), trimmed it to 4 x 5 1/4″ and distressed the edges using the blade of my Tim Holtz scissors (you can also use a paper distresser, but I find I am able to get same results using scissors). I backed this panel up with a red panel and ripped the edges in a few places for an even more worn out look.

If you look closely you can notice I added red beads into the ripped sections – I simply poured a lot of glue and added lots of beads on top. I feel they add a very nice touch to this card.

Finally, I stamped a simple “Celebrate” sentiment in black ink and foam mounted it onto the card.

Poppies are very popular in Ukraine and since this is where I come from this collection is very dear to me. It was such a pleasure making these cards and I’m hoping I’ll get a chance to work with these dies again in the future.

MORE INSPIRATION

Like I mentioned I made many more cards using dies from the Lavender & Poppies (Spellbinders Classics) collection. Here are a few of my favorites:

    1. Wow some gorgeous cards here but I especially love that first one!! The deep red just seems to pop off that beautiful background. And those poppies are embossed so deeply. That just adds so much dimension. Just an absolutely stunning card!! Some awesome dies by spellbinders in this release!

    1. A lovely floral collection of cards! Yana. The poppies are really eye-catching and would be perfect to make a card for the 11th November , Rememberance day here in the UK.

    1. Such a classy looking card with the red and white! I love the small tear at the top with the pop of red showing through also — beautiful cards

    1. Beautiful cards! I love the red beads showing through. I have some Spellbinders dies but would love to have more!

    1. Your cards are fantastic! There’s so much texture and dimension to them. I have several Spellbinders’ dies, but most are the nesting shapes and some sentiments. The lavender and poppy dies you used are beautiful!

    1. Yana, I just adore your poppy card and the other two are just as gorgeous! Your use of the new dies and your layering techniques are fabulous! Brilliant!

    1. Beautiful cards. Love the vibrant red poppies and the lavenders. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. I am a big fan of poppies and love the new Spellbinders poppy dies! A great idea that I may borrow once I get the die!

    1. All your cards are gorgeous! Every project I’ve ever seen from you is fantastic!

    1. I love poppies and these cards are just beautiful. I especially like how you popped up the blossoms. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

    1. The Lavendar and Poppies set is fabulous. I really like the thickness and detail of the poppies. They are really pretty. Thank you so much for sharing.

    1. Anyone who knows me knows how I love poppies. Your cards are wonderful. I love the torn background revealing there’d of the first sample, the torn part down the script of the second. These draw me in and the poppy will be a definite purchase but then I just might have to have them all.

    1. Wath pretty cards and colours! Love all the details on both wonderful cards.

    1. Beautiful cards!! The dies compliment those backgrounds perfectly! I only have a couple of Spellbinders dies, but my wish list is growing with this blog hop

    1. Your cards are beautiful…saved them to my screenshots and look forward to using your ideas. Thanks for sharing. I am an 80 year old card maker and I love finding new ideas!!!
