Spellbinders Club Kit Blog Hop

 Hello friends!

I am delighted to be part of Spellbinder Club Kit blog Hop. Please enjoy today's hop and leave a comment for a chance to win Spellbinders gift voucher!

I have prepared TWO projects to share today. Each project highlight one specific techniques and product. I truly hope that you find inspiration and that they spark your creativity!

The first card highlight the Pattern Paper and Ephemera (from Monthly Card Kit).

sinshine and smiles

The technique I used to create an intricate background is "Paper-Weaving". As I made die cut with the pattern paper, I was left with tiny strips of paper which gave me the idea of paper-weaving.

Once I finished weaving, I trimmed of the top right corner and started to create a garden scene. The ephemera were so fun to get me creative!

I also inked up the background in blue and stamped the small flowers and sentiment.

This is such a happy and cheery card. If you have not tried paper-weaving, you totally should.

My next card features the "Embossing Folder", ephemera and pattern paper.


I started out with creating a colorful background with the Embossing Folder. The bright and happy colors really elevate the design.

The sentiment from the stamp set (part of the Monthly Card Kit) makes me smile and fits my design.

 For the sentiment, I used the Spellbinders Precision Rectangle Dies (linked below). The Rectangles dies are not just for cutting frames. The sizes of the dies are so useful for sentiment as well.


I hope that you enjoy seeing what I created for you.

Really like the card which has the paper weaving. Being a quilter, I love when card designers combine different pieces of patterned papers. It is almost like quilting with paper.

Virginia, I love how you colored the "debossed" side of the embossing folder to create your background. I've never thought of that before! Definitely going to have to try it. Thank you for sharing your two techniques! -Donna
