It is my turn to create a project for Spellbinders as one for their international Blog Ambassadors.
3D M-Bossabilities. If you don't know these yet, you are in for a treat, you have never seen anything like it. The embossed impression with these folders, truly is 3D!
The folders I used were:
Rustic Wreath and Persian Splendor
I also used a number of dies:
Font One Upper Case
Orchard Harvest Tags and Accents
Here is a quick step by step of how I put it all together, lets start with the card:
I cut a piece of 5 x 7 smooth white card stock, put it in the Rustic Wreath folder and ran it through the Grand Calibur using the Pink and the Raspberry Plates. This folder is actually a Christmas one, but by using Autumnal colours the wreath was easily transformed. Here you can see how I coloured it with Distress Inks: Wild Honey, Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive, a tiny bit of Pine Needles, Rusty Hinge, Aged Mahogany and finally Gathered Twigs.
A lot of colours, but I love how the blending of them just brings out the embossing. Here is a close up of the wreath:
I coloured the berries with a bit of Treasure Gold Renaissance Gold.
Next I stamped by sentiment and then cut and embossed it with the number 3 (3rd smallest) of the Splendid Circles dies.
As you can see, I added a bit of string and a brad.
I also stamped a greeting (Tim Holtz Simple Sayings) and cut and embossed it with one of the Ribbon Banner dies, these dies fit the Tim Holtz sayings just perfectly.
For further decoration of my card I stamped a few leaves (Artistic Stamper), cut them out by hand and coloured them to match the rest of my card
I made a flower, using the Blossoms 5 die and then matted and layered it all up with some other little leaves from the Orchard Harvest set and a few bits and pieces from my stash
The box was done in a very similar way. I made a 5 x 7" sized box out of Kraftcard and then I embossed a piece of 5 x 7 card, this time with the Persian Splendour folder, This made the topper of the box. I then cut and embossed 2 further pieces which I trimmed to fit on the sides of the box, colouring everything with the same colours.
As you can see I cut and embossed the word Art with the Alphabet dies (love these, the fact you can emboss them really makes them pop), and then embellished in a similar way.
And finally the completed project:
Well, hope you like it, thank you for visiting and happy October when it comes to you all. Can't wait to show you some Halloween projects soon.
