Hello everyone! I’m Debi Adams, a creative soul and an in-house designer for Spellbinders. I am so excited to be showing off the latest collection from one of our amazing Spellbinders designers, Becca Feeken. I’m fourth down on the blog hop so if you missed the one before this, you will want to go back and see what Sharyn Sowell has been up to, especially since she’s one of our featured designers and Becca is before her! We are also having a ***GIVEAWAY*** listed below that I am sure you won’t want to miss. And, I am giving away a $25.00 Spellbinders gift certificate too!
Anyway, as I previously mentioned, I am bringing you some creations I made using Becca Feeken’s latest line, “Elegant 3-D Vignettes”. I have to say I had so much fun that I could not stop. (Ok, so I admit I got carried away!) I made two cards, a party cup and a favor. I love how intentional Becca is with every design she creates. I can take bits and pieces from this line and combine it with another one and they all work together.
Trifecta-Three Projects Featuring a Card, a Party Cup and a Party Favor Plus a Bonus!
Bundle of Joy Card
All the little details, even if you didn’t add a spot of color, would be amazing! The designs are just that beautiful! For shading the stork, I simply brushed a soft pink onto the design using a Tool ‘n One with foam applicator by Spellbinders.
By using the Filigree Veil die, an embossing plate and rubber mat, you can create an embossed image instead of a cut image as seen here. **TIP: If I had misted this card lightly with water before using this technique, I would have avoided some of the cracked paper.**
I added a piece of ombre paper to the background behind the stork for added interest. Here is a view of the card opened up.
Adding a few little vintage embellishments to the card finished off this piece. The “gate” actually opens up as you can see above. Plenty of room for a sentiment, sweet note or a picture.
Creating the party cup with Becca’s Tiered Rosettes is so easy and would look perfect at a tea party.
To create the cup, die cut two pieces of the Rosette with your choice of edges. Adhere the two sides together then stitch through the holes with thread. Drop a small white party cup on the inside for placement purposes and to create a bottom for the cup. Tie ends off when adjustment has been completed. Hot glue to secure in place.
Attach green chenille wire for handle and embellish with flowers.
These went together so quickly that I made one in a floral print and one in the blue print shown below.
How cute are these little dollies? Oh my GEEEEEEE! I had a blast making them. Could not stop!
Because two are better than one :).
Making the umbrellas are easy when using the Rosette dies in the same fashion as the treat holders. Use a bamboo skewer as the base (instead of the cup), trimming it to be slightly longer than a toothpick, draw up the string from the Rosette until it fits around the stick. Secure in place with hot glue, about 1/2″ from top of dowel. Cut a 1/2″ strip of contrasting paper. (Mine was the gold, as seen in the first umbrella picture). Secure one end to top edge of stick and roll until desired width has been created. Secure in place with hot glue. (The strip of paper and top edge of paper umbrella should touch each other.) Embellish with flowers and ribbon.
I even decorated the inside of the umbrella by using one of Becca’s flowers from the collection. It helped hide any glue that might have seeped inside the umbrella. I added one of the edgings from the line to the edge of the umbrella. Kind of tricky but loved the look.
And this card, it was one of my late night “I-can’t-sleep-because-I-have-an-idea” projects. :). It was never intended to be a part of this post because, as you can tell, this was already quite long but I couldn’t help myself. Lol. The flowers were created using watercolors and my watercolor brush on Arches watercolor paper. I framed the flowers with Becca’s Hemstitch die from a previous collection. (Remember how I said her line connects flawlessly? I mean it!). The numbers were cut from both shiny and brushed gold cardstock and layered together. Simple. I kid you not!
So there you have it! Four different ideas for whatever you are into! Art and crafting bring so many creatives together. Glad you stopped here but don’t forget to visit all the others on the blog hop! They are listed below. If you are moving on from here then you will visiting:
