Adding Dimension To Stand Alone Dies + Spellbinders COUPON!

Adding Dimension To Stand Alone Dies + Spellbinders COUPON!

Happy Monday, everybody! My exams are almost over so it’s almost time to celebrate. However, that’s not the only reason I want to celebrate. Remember that I briefly mentioned something about Spellbinders a while ago? Well, I can finally share the news… A while ago, Spellbinders reached out to me and invited me on their SpellBlogger team. Of course I said yes!

More information and a COUPON CODE can be found later in this blog post. First I would like to share my very first card as a SpellBlogger featuring the Make Mine Lemon Mine die cut set from the Shapebilities Market Fresh by Debi Adams collection ( Spellbinders | SSS | AMZ ). In this video, I’m showing you how to add dimension with Distress Ink to stand alone dies like these.

When I first saw the Make Mine Lemon Mine die cut set Spellbinders Make Mine Lemon Lime Dies ( Spellbinders | SSS | AMZ ), I knew I wanted to make a cute card with it! But when it arrived and I sat down to create something with it, I was a bit intrigued. I honestly rarely make a card using a stand alone die. I use coordinating dies all the time, but stand alone dies? Those are pretty new to me!

I die cut the lemon shapes with Spellbinders Platinum 6 Die Cutting Machine ( Spellbinders | SSS ). Then, I added dimension with Distress Inks. It looks like I used at least two different colors per tone while I only used one for each! For the yellow, I used Squeezed Lemonade Ranger Distress Ink Pad, Squeezed Lemonade ( EH | SSS | AMZ ). By simply adding more ink and by blending it out, you achieve a dimensional and fun look. For the green pieces, I used Twisted Citron Ranger Distress Ink Pad, Twisted Citron( EH | SSS | AMZ ).

lI wanted my sentiment to pop without using anything too bright. So, I reached for some subtle patterned paper from Pinkfresh Studio ( SSS ). I die cut the sentiment twice out of Fun Foam ( SSS | AMZ ) for extra dimension. Finally, I finished off my card with a variety of sequins from The Ton. They’re my favorite! 🙂
