Crop & Create Delivered – Spellbinders

Now Spellbinders is one brand that I’d heard of before the event, but I didn’t really own anything by Spellbinders other than a couple of second-hand die sets when I first set out cardmaking a year ago. Since then I’ve used the discount we received at the event and placed a pretty massive order with them, and I’m super impressed with the quality of the die cuts that I’ve seen so far. But this isn’t about my shopping spree, this is all about the card project … and my first attempt at stitching on a card!

Spellbinders class project

Some things I loved about this class:

  • I’ve been a stitcher for 30+ years and a cardmaker for almost a year – combining two crafts sure is fun! I love the stitched effect and sure it won’t be my last!
  • I love the simplicity of this die set and the different looks it will give with different colour choices – I look forward to playing more with this one.
  • I love that I’m feeling more confident with my cardmaking – after realising I’d cut my gold cardstock too close to the edge so I couldn’t use it for the back layer, I could pivot easily and heat embossed the edges of some cardstock with gold embossing powder instead. And now that means I have enough gold card left to do another card 😉
  • What can I say, I’m a blue-hearted gal so the colours make me happy – and those blue gemstones are to die for!

I added a bit of Versamark ink with a background stamp just to give the background a tiny bit of textural look, otherwise the card is per the class instructions.
