Spellbinders Collaboration | Fancy Heat Embossing

Hi everyone! I’m thrilled to share two cards using products from the latest Spellbinders collection.

First, I got the chance to play with the Floral Panel Card Etched Dies (from the Flower Garden Collection by Sharyn Sowell). As you can see bellow, it’s a cover-up die.

But I decided to think "out of the box" and use it in a different way. I die cut the panel from white cardstock and I cut out one flower (on the top right corner) with scissors. I sponged the flower with Distress inks and then with Versamark ink. I sprinkled Frantage Shabby White Embossing Enamel over the flower and heat embossed the piece with a heat gun. Next, I created a top-folded card base with light pink cardstock. I did some tiny black ink splatters on a white panel, heat embossed the sentiment using golden embossing powder, tore up a piece of vellum with my fingers and fixed it to the panel at a corner. To finish off the card, I adhered the flower to the vellum using foam pads for more dimension and the panel to the pinkish card base.  

For the second project, I worked with the Shapeabilities Botanical Dragonfly Etched Dies (also from the Flower Garden Collection by Sharyn Sowell).

I die cut the dragonfly from white cardstock, sponged the pieces with Versamark inks and heat embossed it with gold sparkle embossing powder. I then created a top-folded card base and sponged blue ink over it using a stencil and blending tools. I adhered the dragonfly to the card front with foam pads for more dimension and added a label sentiment, heat embossed with gold embossing powder, as shown. The sparkle effect is SO beautiful and looks incredible in real life (much more as on the picture).

Gorgeous cards, Francine! I love how you selected one rose from your die cut panel and how you added texture with embossing powder! Love your sparkly gold dragonfly and lovely stenciling on the 2nd card, too...I'm inspired :)
