Spellbinders May 2018 Blog Hop

Hi there crafty friends!  I'm so excited to be part of the awesome Spellbinders blog hop this month.  Today we are featuring wonderful inspiration using products from Romancing the Swirl by Becca Feeken  and Perfect Match by Debi Adams .  

You should have arrived here from the amazing Olga!  

My projects are all from Romancing the Swirl today.  I have created 5 cards from this fantastic collection.  Be sure to read all the way to the end to get the blog hop list, and also get details on a giveaway to Spellbinders!

My first card is a lacy card front using the Shapeabilities Flourished Square dies. I watercolored the flower bouquet Spellbinders die cut and then set aside.  I used the swirl die to make the card front, then added some layered Nestabilities hemstitch circles as a place to put my birthday greeting.  There are so many possibilities with this die's simply lovely!

This card features the gorgeous Shapeabilities Trefoil Crest die. I made a simple shaker card and added some rose gold sequins for this anniversary card.  I often like to take a die and frame out my shaker.  The card is simple, and elegant, and perfect for an anniversary!

There are lots of layers and details in this elegant card.  I did some inlaid die cutting using the Shapeabilities Flourished Square die set to make the center panel. I layered it with some vellum over a piece of patterned scrapbook paper.  The top layer is shimmery cardstock.  I added some pearls as the perfect embellishment. 

This simple card makes a bold statement using the Nestabilities Hemstitch Circles on a bright purple card stock panel.  I watercolored the flower die cuts from Spellbinders and added them for a simple, yet pretty touch on this friendship card. 

This last card features a bold and black swirl cut from the Shapeabilities Flourished Square dies laid over a lovely watercolor background.  I love how the black just pops against the watercolor.
