3D Inky!

Hello friends
Something new has popped up on the Spellbinders™  website - under the Explore Beyond tab
there is a section relating to 'Style' and the card pictured is mine!
Haven't they done a wonderful job displaying it with flowers and limes.
Here is my photo that I took for the card project and you can see a little bit more detail.
The dies used are Les Papillions Two, A2 Bracket Borders One and that super embossing
is from the Delightful Daisies 3D M-Bossabilities Folder.
So simple...just using white cardstock, embossed once (the emboss is so deep!) and then a variety
of distress inks, rubbing it over the surface - more intense in some places than others.
Layering up the A2 Bracket Borders One, tiny bit of ribbon and twine.
A little 'For You' tag...yes it's that tag die I lost but found again - phew!
I promise to stock these new 3D M-Bossabilities - they really are superb.

I hope you are all having a good weekend and keeping warm!
I didn't quite get around to the shop window yesterday as I got engrossed in projects
(and a Friday Die Day...preparing ahead!)
I'm cooking today - roast pork with all the trimmings (we don't do the word 'diet' in this house!)
Take care friends.

Hi Christine. Love the way Spellbinders have dressed your card. The embossing looks very deep and love the way you have inked it up. Roast dinner, set a place for me please.

What a lovely card Christine. I'm not a fan of orange so would probably choose a different colour way, but the design is great. Not sure what to have for lunch - off to the shops this morning for inspiration. Then it's loads of ironing for school/work tomorrow as there is not enough of the white stuff to stop that happening. Stamperama is on today in Stevenage - I'm tempted but as Make It is on next week in Farnborough I may save my pennies ( and hope it's a bit warmer next weekend to venture out). Ju

You're right Christine. This beautiful card has been displayed perfectly, showing up all the colours used and that wonderful butterfly. Enjoy you roast! Hugs, Jenny x

Hi Christine. Love todays card and the way you have coloured the background. Of course the butterfly is superb.

Enjoy your roast today. We are off out for lunch later but gardening this morning. All the seeds I planted are coming on really well and have to be repotted.

Morning Christine, Absolutely lovely this card, the embossing is really beautiful with the distressing, and I adore the bracket edge die-cuts, Spellbinders have done a fantastic job with the presentation.
Have a lovely lunch, sounds good to me, glad you don't use the 'D' word in your house ha ha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Gorgeous Christine...really really lovely, but you won't believe this..I was looking for ideas with this folder online last night and saw this card, so I had already made up my mind to take inspiration from it! Happy Sunday, Carole Z X

Hi Christine

I love this card and the colours you have chosen. I have started this using technique as I have lots of different embossing folders, and it completely changes them! The display of your card is fantastic.....which I had such an eye for detail.
Roast pork - yum! Enjoy as it's just what's needed on a chilly day.

Morning Christine

The display team have done a lovely job of showing off your card. I love the inking on the embossing but I know if I did it it would look messy

Enjoy your roast pork, its roast chicken for us today

Morning Christine, Lovely card as usual and I love the colours you have put together, so fresh and spring like which seems a long time coming! I was gardening in the snow yesterday! Enjoy your Roast Pork. Love the Embossing folder you used by the way! Must get that one, so please get it in.

Hi Christine,
wonderful card, and a great design also.
Enjoy your Sunday roast.

Hi Christine, sweet little card, those 3D embossabilities are a must.
May I ask a question, I have an 'old' or one of the first Spellbinder Grand C's, will the Raspberry plate work with it? I have been told there is a different Raspberry plate that I need due to mine being an original version G.C? Hope you can help as I would love to purchase these new embossing plates.By the way, I have got a white, Creative Impressions Embossing Plate for other makes and I know that can't be used with the spellbinders.
Enjoy your Sunday Roast'
Crafty best wishes, Carolyn x

Sasha said...

Beautifully created, Christine. Love how you coloured with the letterpress technique. I have ordered the new bracket border dies and can't wait for them to arrive. They look really lovely at the bottom of your card x

Eileen Lucas said...

Your card is beautiful Christine, so springy, love your choice of colors and how Spellbinders displayed it. Glad I didnt miss it since Spellbinders didnt sent an email to let us know there was a new tab to view. Enjoy your roast today. Still anxious to see your sign and window!!! Waving to Bella ;)

The card is absolutely lovely and very spring like. Look forward to seeing these 3d m-bossitilities on your Amazon shop.
Having a braising steak tea tonight, yum, not had it for a while. Unfortunately for us we are doing diets at the moment - got a beach holiday in 6 weeks time.
