Spellbinders Stained Glass Bouquet Collection

 Hello my friends!  I was thrilled to get to create with two products from Spellbinders Stained Glass Bouquet Collection by Becca Feeken.  There are several other gorgeous sets in the collection that you can check out here.

My first card features the stunning die set called Be Leave Me.  I went with a feminine color scheme that makes this perfect for sending to your BFF!

I used a 5-½" x 4-¼" white card base and added pink and patterned paper panels that I die cut with my Spellbinders Platinum machine using the largest dies in the A2 Matting Basics A and A2 Matting Basics B die sets.

Next I die cut the large leaf cluster and the two leaves from white card stock.  I got lucky when I saw that all of the little pieces remained in place after I die cut them!  To keep them in place I added some purple tape to the back and then removed the white frames.  Next I die cut just the solid layer of both.  I used a few Copic markers to color the pieces and then adhered the solid layer, the frame, and then the inlay pieces together.

I repeated these steps for the sweet flower; however, first I die cut it from pink card stock, and again from white card stock.  I used one Copic marker to add a bit of shading to the pink pieces.

Next I used glue and foam squares to add the elements to my card base.  I stamped the sentiment onto the banner and popped it up with a foam strip.  It's hard to see from my photo, but there's a fun bit of sparkle on the flower and leaves that I added with a Wink of Stella.


My second card features the gorgeous Tulip Trio die set.  I Copic colored some vellum for this sweet stained glass look.  Read on for the details.

First I created a 5" square white card base.  I used the outer square die in the Tulip Trio die set to cut a piece of pink card stock, added foam tape to the back and attached it to the card.  Then I die cut the detailed square from white card stock and adhered it to the pink layer.

Next I centered the tulip circle die into the circle die and put some purple tape on them to keep them together.  I placed it on some white card stock and ran it through my Spellbinders' Platinum die cutting machine.  Then I used just the circle die to cut a vellum circle.  I adhered the detailed tulip circle to the vellum circle with some dots of liquid adhesive.  Then I used two Copic markers (RV25 and RV13 to color the tulips on the back of the vellum.  I used G28 and YG17 for the leaves.  TIP:  Color your lightest color first, then flick on the darker shade--don't try to blend!!  It will make a hot mess!  LOL!!  Next I attached the piece to the card base.

I used the same steps and pink Copic markers for the decorative corners.  I did use the solid corner die to cut four white corner pieces and adhered them to the top layer.  I decided that this is just too pretty to add any sentiment!  I'll add one inside when I have an occasion to send the card to a friend!

Thank you all so much for stopping by!  I hope you're getting to have a fun and crafty weekend!
