Hello! This is Betty from The Things I Do With Paper. I am thrilled to guest design for Spellbinder’s and excited to show you what I created using Holiday 2019 Collection by Sharyn Sowell collection. I love the versatility of the dies and the endless possibilities.
Whether you want to create detailed “one of a kind” Christmas cards or simplistic massed produced cards, this Holiday 2019 Collection by Sharyn Sowell works great! Lets take a look a my projects.
Joy to the World
For this card, I ink blended onto some watercolored paper and used acrylic white ink splatters as well as water to create a snow background scene. I added layered snowbanks using Spellbinders Scalloped Borders.
I combined Winter Friends Etched dies and Starry Forest etched die to create a peaceful winter Christmas scene. I just love the adorable animals in these collections. I ink blended the animals as well as added some Copic markers for added detail. I finished this card with a few clear sequins.
Love Came Down
For this card, I ink blended another background panel. I used three different shades on this card. I used water as well as acrylic white paint for some subtle splatters. I die cut the Love Came Down etched dies three times with white card stock.
I glued each panel together and added to the ink blend panel. I adhered the completed panel to a top folding white card stock base. I added some clear sequins to finish the card. This card can be easily massed produced. The images and sentiment say it all.
Love Everything About You
For this card I blended some fun pattern papers and showcased the versatility of the Peace on Earth Etched dies. I created a non-holiday card with this set. Of course, it works beautifully for a Christmas card, but I love it used, too, for other occasions.
I layered two of the die cuts together. I stamped the sentiment first then die cut and popped up the center sentiment piece. I finished this card with a few clear sequins. I love the clean and simple design style with the pop of colors.
