Hello friends~ Spellbinders has recently released a new line of 3-D embossing folders and they are fun, fun! They're made to work with the new Universal Plate System, but I discovered the right sandwich using my Spellbinders Grand Calibur.
For my first card, I embossed a piece of white cardstock using the Circle Illusion Embossing Folder. I added a sweet slice of pie using Serve A Slice from the Pie Perfection Collection.
Look at the crips detail in the embossing. I recently learned that if you lightly spray your cardstock before running it through the machine with the embossing folder, that will prevent the cardstock from cracking.
For my second card, I was inspired by the amazingly talented, Yana Smakula. She recently made a video explaining "Analagous Color Schemes". I've had a color wheel in my craft room for many months and rarely use it. I was so intrigued, I just had to give it a try.
The flowers are cut using Petite Floral Potpourri. The colors I used were Blue-Violet, Violet and Violet-Red. What an interesting color combination, but I love it!
I also used the 60%, 40%, 20% theory of using color, which she also explained in her video. You can watch Yana's video by clicking HERE.
For my final card, I turned to fall and one of my favorite die sets from Spellbinders to date. It was such a joy to work with the Wagon Full of Fall die set again. Mind you that I'm not rushing through summer! But it's always good to think ahead. As an added bonus, this die set is currently marked down to 40% off!
I've linked all the items I used below, for your convenience. I am always incredibly grateful when you use my shopping links. Thank you!!
