Spellbinders Hop - Inked Messages and Special Moments



Good morning! I'm excited today to be hopping with Spellbinders featuring the Special Moments and Inked Messages Lines! I have 3 cards to share today using some of the products in the new Inked Messages Line! You should have arrived here from Brenda Noelke - if you just happened along, make sure and head back to the Spellbinders Blog to hop all the way through. I also have an entire blog hop list at the bottom of this post in case you get lost along the way!


First up, I have this card using the super fun new Message in a Bottle Stamp and Die set! I absolutely love this fun scene in the bottle - and had so much fun coloring it in! And I made it a window card - die cutting out my colored image, and also die cutting a window in the front of my card, then mounting the colored image on the inside!


I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp's You Got This Stamp Set, stamped on a bit of Smoke Gray Cardstock, and hand trimmed to a banner. I mounted this on the front of the card, over the window.


Finished off with a few Nuvo Limoncello Jewel Drops, and used a black pen and a ruler to add some sketchy lines around the outside of the front of my card.


Next up, I have anther card created with the same Message in a Bottle Stamp and Die set - but this time I used the additional stamp set to add a note in the bottle. Such a fun idea!


I stamped and colored the bottle and the note - stamping a sentiment from the same Simon Says Stamp's You Got This Stamp Set as the previous card, but this time on the note. I attached the note to the jar with foam adhesive, and tied some jute string around the neck of the bottle. 


Next, I layered up some pattern paper from Lawn Fawn's Gotta Have Gingham 6x6 Paper Pad, and added some black splatters with Pinkfresh Studio's Licorice Liquid Watercolors - seriously the best way to add black splatters! Finally, I attached the bottle with foam adhesive over the top, at a bit of a jaunty angle!


And finally, a very neutral and simple card with some repeat stamping using Wanderlust Stamp and Die set:


For this card, I repeatedly stamped the main image - and wanderlust sentiment - on a panel of Smoke Gray Cardstock. I used a white Prismacolor Pencil to add a simple outline around each image to help it pop a little from the background. The sentiment from the set was heat embossed on a bit of black cardstock - and then die cut with the coordinating dies (I love that you can die cut this sentiment!) and mounted with foam over the entire panel. A simple mat in black cardstock and a white cardbase finish this card off.


Would love to hear what your favorite sets from this new release are! Or which of these cards is your favorite! I am kind of partial to the bottles myself...although I can't choose which one of the two is my favorite! :)
