Watercolored Die Cuts + Spellbinders Hop
Hello everyone! I am thrilled to be back with you today sharing a bit of watercolor and die cut inspiration with you that also happens to feature Spellbinders products!
I really wanted to have a video for you on how I created this card, but I was away on a trip and was delayed getting home; this prevented me from being able to get the video edited uploaded to my YouTube channel. If you would like to see a video on creating a similar technique to what I used in this card, you can watch this tutorial HERE on my blog.
Today’s inspiration also happens to be part of the Spellbinders April blog hop, showcasing some of their latest products! I’m using the beautiful Top Floral Panel die, which I’ve watercolored with Prima’s Essence, Woodlands and Pastel Dreams palettes. Prima’s watercolors are so much fun to mix and match and this stunning die from Spellbinders features lots of areas that can be colored.
I mixed my colors on the florals to get new shades, which makes this card – and the die! – able to be customized in just about any way! I layered the watercolored die cut onto three other layers of plain white Top Floral Panel die cuts, which adds dimension to the layers. I placed the watercolored panel onto a Neenah Desert Storm card base that also has some scored lines added to it.
The sentiments I included in the card are from Simon Says Stamp’s Big Thanks Words stamp set and I also added a few Nuvo Jewel Drop embellishments around my florals.
I hope you enjoyed this sweet and pretty card using the Spellbinders Top Floral Panel die! There are lots more things to see in this inspiring hop; keep on reading for the complete supply list for this card and the details of the blog hop! Thank you for visiting with me; I’ll be back again soon with more to share!
