Spellbinders Indie Line Blog Hop and Giveaway

Good morning! I'm excited today to be hopping with Spellbinders featuring the Indie Line, available only from select retailers! You can find it HERE at Simon Says Stamp - or check on the Spellbinders Blog for a more complete list!





I have two cards to share today using two of the sets in this fabulous collection - the Layered Rose Etched Dies and Wishing Expressions Cling Stamp and Die set:


I decided to die cut the flowers from Layered Rose Etched Dies using a mix of white cardstock and pattern paper. I cut the base layers using white cardstock, then both of the flower layers in the same pattern paper for a soft layered look, and two colors for the leaves.


I did the same thing with the word dies from Wishing Expressions Cling Stamp and Die set - white cardstock for the base layer, and then pattern paper for the detail layer.


For my cardbases, I used Fog cardstock from Simon Says Stamp - a nice soft gray. I added score lines around the edges to form a frame, then added some white paint splatters.


I heat embossed a sentiment for each card from Wishing Expressions Cling Stamp and Die set on a strip of black cardstock, and layered everything on the cardbases with foam adhesive.


I finished off with a few white jewels from Pretty Pink Posh on the sides of the sentiment strips for a bit of sparkle!
