Hello fellow makers! Miranda here from Tinsel + Wheat guest blogging with Spellbinders as we celebrate Christmas in July! I’m so excited to show you how easy these little chalkboard stocking ornaments are to re-create.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Let’s get started!

Step 1: Cut your stockings out.

Cut out as many stockings as desired with your Platinum 6 machine, naughty or nice steel rule die, and balsa wood. Your sandwich die starting from the bottom up will be clear acrylic plate + your naughty or nice steel rule die + balsa wood + acrylic plate.

Paint your stockings using black chalkboard paint. Make sure to paint both sides, this will help prevent warping.

Quilt It Pineapple Print

Hi everyone! It’s Alli again from Partyography and today I’m excited to share this pineapple print I made using the new Quilt It Collection from Lene Lok. Since we’re right in the middle of summer and I’m loving the pineapple trend, I thought this print would be perfect on a dessert table for all your summer gatherings or even as summer home decor. I love how you can have a quilted look without the sewing!

Quilt It Pineapple Print

Instructions:

Quilt It Pineapple Print Step 1

Start by picking out what colors you’d like to use in your pineapple. I used four variations of yellow and four variations of green but you can use any color or pattern you like!

Quilt It Pineapple Print Step 2

Next cut S3-287 Die D-Lites Half Square Triangle Quilt Etched Dies with all the shades of cardstock. You’ll want to focus on cutting with the four triangles in the middle of the die. You will need 52 pieces of yellow for the base of the pineapple and 18 pieces for the top of the pineapple. It sounds like a lot but goes pretty quickly, especially if you double up on cardstock when you’re cutting.

Quilt It Pineapple Print Step 3

Once all the triangles are cut, you can use this pineapple print as a guide and glue all the pieces into place. I actually glued the base of the pineapple onto one piece of white cardstock and the top of the pineapple onto another piece of cardstock. Once all the pieces were glued, I cut around the edges and glued the two pieces onto an 11×14 piece of poster board. This helped to make sure the pineapple was centered on the print.

You Are My Everything Card

This simple technique of die-cutting repetitively the same etched die creates a stunning background without much effort. The Tiny Floral Etched Dies From The Joyous Celebrations Collection By Sharyn Sowell is a unique die. It does not cut out a whole shape but rather cuts into the medium you are using and creates a design like an inset pattern. See how we created this beautiful card…

Instructions:

1. Create 5 x 7” top folding card base out of pearlescent white cardstock.

2. Cut pink cardstock panel to 4 ¾ x 6 ¾ “, adhere onto the card base.

3. Cut pearlescent white panel to 4 ½ x 6 ½” . Die-cut S2-262 Tiny Floral Etched Dies repeatedly in the panel. Start by die-cutting the first set of flowers on any corner. Next place the die onto the paper so that it overlaps with one row of flowers and cut two more rows out. Repeat until the entire panel is cut.

4. Foam mount die cut panel onto the card.

5. Stamp sentiment onto white cardstock in black ink. Trim into a strip, foam mount onto the card, add ribbon.

6. Embellish card with pearls.

Adorable Birthday Card Ft. Half Hex Quilt & Bear Scout

Hi everyone! I’m Laura Sterckx from makingcardsisfun.com and I’m excited to be sharing my first card and video on the Spellbinders blog as a Spellblogger! 🙂 For today’s blog post I made a cute birthday card for kids featuring the Half Hex Quilt dies from the Quilt It collection by Lene Lok along with the Bear Scout die from the My Little Red Wagon collection by Debi Adams.

First I used the Half Hex Quilt dies from the Quilt It collection by Lene Lok to create my own patterned paper. To be honest with you, I have zero experience when it comes to quilting so I had to some research online. Thankfully the packaging of these dies shows a sample card on the front and a quick overview of the finished pattern on the back. For this particular card, I was inspired by the pattern Yana made using this same set! I mixed three different colors of card stock and some pretty marbled patterned paper. I recommend playing around with these dies and experiment with the different possibilities.

Next it was time to add some cuteness to this card! I used Bear Scout Etched Die from the My Little Red Wagon Collection by Debi Adams. I simply die cut the image out of white card stock and added my color with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. However, you could just die cut it out of some brown card stock instead! For the bear’s snout I colored some card stock with an E30 Copic Sketch Marker. To add some more details to this bear, I used a fine black pen and the die cut as a stencil for the bear and snout.

To add more dimension I die cut a circle out of the quilted patterned paper using Standard Circles SM Etched Dies set. I die cut the same circle three more times out of Fun Foam. Then I adhered those pieces together and stuck a vellum circle on top. This tones down that patterned and makes the bear pop! Finally I finished off this card with a stamped sentiment banner, enamel dots and some clear sequins.

That’s it for my first post here on the Spellbinders blog. Thank you for joining me and I’ll see you soon. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this card and video! 🙂
