Holiday Label Motifs Etched Die

 Hello friends!

I am delighted to share a new project from Spellbinders August release Seasonal Label Motifs. 

This Holiday Label Motifs Etched Dies is from the Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken. Bring in the holidays with this wonderful set of 13 thin metal cutting dies that has a handsome label design with a brilliant ray accent. It also includes a fabulous lantern and candle, along with Christmas floral to add. For a final touch, stamp a sentiment from STP-150 Seasonal Motif Sentiment Clear Stamp Set in the same collection.

If you love all seasons, this Seasonal Label Motifs Collection is for you! Each set captures a season perfectly for your paper crafting creations. Cluster them to make a focal point on a card front, a corner of a scrapbook layout or in a home d├ęcor piece. Personalize it with the stamp set in the same collection. So versatile!

 May the spirit

What's so special about this die? For one thing, I really love the label die. Spellbinders is the pioneer when it comes to label die.

With the two-layered dies, it instantly draws the attention to the focal point. I love making my own paper. So, for the poinsettia and the yellow label, I used my DIY paper. They really add that interesting mix of textures and colors.

The small pieces in this die set are really easy to put together. I love the details of the lamp and went extra mile to inlay two tiny pieces of gold around the candle. Working on details like this makes me happy.

All Hearts

 As always, I love stamping this style of background with Distress Oxide. 

All hearts -001

From top to down, you can see that I started with Salvaged PatinaCrushed Olive, Rustic Wilderness, and Cracked Pistachio.

all hearts -002

With the Distress Oxide, I like to add a layer of clear-embossing once I finished stamping the background.

all hearts -003

To make the entire design pop, I matted a piece of black cardstock with the help of Nestabilities Dies (Set A and Set B) . I can not recommend these two basic dies enough. They are the arsenal that make designs a stand-out. I hope you enjoy seeing this wintery card in the midst of summer.

When I saw the beautiful butterfly ephemera and gold thicker, I was inspired to create a backdrop with the embossing folder.

Hey You

To prepare the background, I used cream cardstock. I then ink-blended 3 colors (yellow, blue and pink) onto the surface. That was the  first step.

EOM-August 2022-001

The second step is to run the cardstock through dry-embossing folder. The 3rd step, ink up the ridges from the dry-embossed surface.

hey you -001

To make the background look more lively, add some splatter!

 I started out with stamping the dandelion image. I then started to "build" the images around it.

 These embellishments are easy to use. I tried to balance the white space, focal point in a cluster.

 The colors from the pattern paper really compliment the images.
