Celebrate You Collection – Cards & Gifts For Special Occasions with Annie Williams

Hi there, this is Annie Williams and I’m thrilled to be back on the blog today to share several projects using the new Celebrate You Collection from Spellbinders. The gorgeous sentiments, unique 3D dies, and pretty tag designs in this collection inspired me to create a ton of cards and bags for all different occasions.

Baby Card

I thought the Venetian Wallpaper Stencil was so beautiful and would make the perfect background for this soft and pretty baby card.

  • Stamp a sentiment from the Sentiments For You Stamp Set onto white cardstock using Versamark Ink, add gold embossing powder, and melt with a heat tool.
  • Die-cut Mirror Gold Cardstock using the large label from the Sentiment Labels Die Set, adhere the sentiment panel on top with liquid glue and trim one of the openings off the label with scissors.

  • Die-cut white cardstock using the Fluted Classics Circles Die Set and the Swallowtail Tags Die Set and assemble to look like a prize ribbon.

Lastly, I thought the shapes in the Assorted Tags Die Set were so cute they could be a focal point all on their own.  Here I used bright colors and a tone-on-tone look for an easy card that would work great to give a gift for all kinds of occasions.

  • Trim white cardstock to 4” x 5.25” and emboss it using the Diamond Plaid Embossing Folder.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Let’s Celebrate Sentiments Stamp Set onto Teal Topaz, Dahlia, Peridot, Persimmon, Beeswax, and Lilac Blossom Cardstock using a closely coordinating ink color.
  • Die-cut each sentiment out using the small square tag die from the Assorted Tags Die Set.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Let’s Celebrate Sentiments Stamp Set onto Onyx Cardstock using Versamark Ink, add white embossing powder, and melt with a heat tool. Cut it out using the label insert die from the Sentiment Labels Die Set.
  • Add the embossed background to a top-folding A2-sized white card base with foam adhesive.
  • Arrange the tags and sentiment strip on the front of the card and adhere them down with more foam adhesive.
