‘Embroidery Flowers’ Clear Spellbinders Stamp Set from Cardmaker II Stamp Collection

Hi all, welcome to another blog post as a Guest for Spellbinders for their Cardmaker II Stamp collection.

One thing I love to do is create my own pattern paper by repeat stamping for the background panel. Sometimes I love playing with a monochromatic colour scheme and for today I have used the Catherine Pooler Pixie Dust ink with an added touch of ink blending around the edges to add some depth.

I have die cut the ovals with Fancy Edged & Elegant Ovals dies with white cardstock. For the image, I have stamped with the Pixie Dust ink and used the rock n roll method and added a little Royal Treatment ink around the edges. To finish the card off I have embellished with some lavender rhinestones.

‘New Start’ Clear Spellbinders Stamp Set from Cardmaker II Stamp Collection

Hi all, welcome to my very first blog posts as a Guest for Spellbinders for their Cardmaker II Stamp collection.

Today, I have played with the New Start stampset and boy oh boy this is such a pretty and heart-felt stampset. The sentiments in this stampet were quite fitting for this point of my life as I make cards for end-of-year graduates. To fill you in, my son Saxon just graduated Grade 12 and is now moving forward with his adult life. What a whirlwind of a week it has been for our family. I look forward to the mark he makes in this world whether it is going to University / College or just being a good model citizen.

Now onto my card – sorry for the side track…..

I couldn’t help myself and I just had to heat emboss these delicate butterflies with WOW! Embossing Powder Teal Luster. I also added some embossing glitter behind the enmbossing folder cuts with Catherine Pooler ‘Uptown’ embossing glitter. I love the peek-a-boo effect these folders give.

Who doesn’t love a little ink blending right? I have mixed two colour inks from Catherine Pooler to get this blend – Cover Blue & Serene to the bottom left of the dry embossed panel. I kept this card rather simple. What do you think?

A little more about this stampset …. GRAB YOURS HERE

New Start Clear Stamp Set is part of the Cardmaker II Stamp Collection. There are eight clear Photopolymer stamps in the set. Images include three different types of butterflies and five encouraging sentiments. They are designed to work with an acrylic block and made in the U.S.A.

Approximate Size:

  • Butterfly 1: 2.28 x 1.40 in./5.79 x 3.56 cm
  • Butterfly 2: 1.87 x 1.94 in./4.75 x 4.93 cm
  • Butterfly 3: 1.60 x 1.04 in./4.06 x 2.64 cm
  • Kind: 1.71 x 0.64 in./4.34 x 1.63 cm
  • Small Things 2.15 x 0.67 in./5.46 x 1.70 cm
  • How Far: 2.15 x 0.62 in./5.46 x 1.57 cm

I have been having so much making slimline cards as the ‘Touch of Frost’ slimline pattern paper.

This winter paper pack is formatted in CP slimline size at 3.5″ x 8.5″ and comes in a variety of patterns and prints featuring snowflakes and floral designs.  The Spa color combo is inspired by our Pink Champagne, Hot Tub, Skylight, Tranquil, Cove Blue and Twilight Inks.  Try pairing this paper with our Aspen or Glacier Bay Sequin mixes!

You’ll get three (3) sheets of each of the eight (8) different designs. The collection has not only snowflake patterns but there are also floral and solid pattern papers that can suit masculine cards too. Don’t you love the versatility the Catherine Pooler ranges have to offer? For today’s card, I have used the new Winter frames slimline dies. This double frame has a subtle wood grain emboss imprint as an added element feature. Honestly, I will be using this one more and more. I can envision so many uses for this die.

Now if you know me well I just have to add a little sparkle…… I have heat embossed the snow flake dies in Pink Tutu embossing glitter from WOW! Embossing Powder.

I hope you like my slimline card inspiration with the new release.
