9 1 14 Spellbinders fr v2 Framed Die Cut Vignettes

With Spellbinders’ wide selection of dies, you can create all kinds of cute vignettes for wall art in small spaces. Take advantage of both the die-cut shapes and the space they leave behind to make sweet picture pairings. This project is a great way to combine several rich solid colors of your favorite cardstock, and Spellbinders’ gorgeous embossing folders are perfect for adding texture and interest to your design. For more hints and tips, watch my YouTube video tutorial!

Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Embossing Folders
Spellbinders Dies
Grand Caliber Diecutting Machine
Magnetic placement mat
Cardstock – solid colors
Paper trimmer
Glue stick and/or craft glue
Chipboard or metal tag embellishments
5”x7” frames

1. Choose three coordinating colors of cardstock – in the “Home” example, I used purple swiss dot, blue and yellow. Place one color in an embossing folder (your choice of pattern) and run it through the Grand Caliber, then repeat for a second color to create your embossed background sheets. Trim each to 5” x 7”.

2. Emboss one strip each of the same two background colors with a different pattern and trim each strip to 7/8” x 5”.

3. Arrange a vignette of small dies on the magnetic sheet (positioned on the base plate), add the third color of card stock (purple swiss dot) and the cutting plate, then run it through the Grand Caliber.

4. Carefully remove the die-cut shapes and trim the purple sheet to 5” wide by whatever depth is appropriate for the “negative” design.

5. Glue a “positive” vignette to one background, and the “negative” vignette to the other background, leaving room for the embossed strip at the bottom.

6. Glue a strip to each vignette (contrast the colors) and add a tag embellishment to the center. Place them in matching 5” x 7” frames and enjoy!

Spellbinders Industrial Desktop Organizers

Spellbinders Industrial Style Desktop Organizer 300

7 28 14 Spellbinders Indust Spellbinders Industrial Desktop Organizers

 

Ready to gear up for work? Spellbinders Media Mixage Aluminum Sheets are nice and thick – they really hold an embossed pattern beautifully. The Creative Cogs design is a natural fit for the smooth, shiny aluminum and the rough texture of the silver paint. This desktop organizer set would be a sleek addition to anyone’s workspace. Watch my YouTube video tutorial where I share my tips and techniques!

Supplies:

Spellbinders Grand Calibur Die-cutting Machine
Spellbinders Media Mixage Aluminum Sheets
Spellbinders 3D M-Bossabilities Creative Cogs Folder
Unfinished wood desktop organizers
Silver craft paint
White gesso
Gloss medium
Industrial-strength adhesive
Black paint marker
Metal embellishments
Paint brush
Stencil brush
Sandpaper
Black duct tape (optional)
Black solvent inkpad (optional)
Metallic silver paper (optional)

1. Sand all the wood surfaces, then prime with a coat of white gesso; let dry.

2. Blend silver paint with gloss medium (50/50) and paint the surfaces with the first coat using a large, flat brush in long strokes. The medium will add shine to the paint and also help to retain the brush stroke texture; let dry.

3. Use a short, stiff stencil brush to pounce a second coat of silver paint (100%) on top of the first coat. The stipple effect mixes nicely with the brushstrokes to make the wood look like scratched up metal; let dry.

4. Color the edges of the wood with a black paint marker.

5. Emboss several aluminum sheets through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Cogs design. Decide which areas of the wood you want to cover with tiled, embossed aluminum. Trace and trim out the shapes you need from the aluminum a tiny bit smaller than the surface area to avoid exposing any sharp metal edges.

6. Glue the aluminum pieces into position – press and rub firmly, then place a small weighted object on top while the glue dries.

7. Glue metal embellishments as desired.

Options:

–          Ink the raised areas of the embossing with black

–          Cover sides with black duct tape instead of silver paint

–          Cover sides with silver metallic cardstock instead of silver paint


 

Spellbinders Enjoy the Ride Bicycle Clock

Spellbinders Bicycle Clock by Lisa Fulmer 300

6 30 14 Spellbinders Bicycl Spellbinders Enjoy the Ride Bicycle Clock

The new In’Spire dies from Spellbinders are beyond adorable! They include trendy, iconic images like birds on a wire, a typewriter, a fox, a streetlight and this cute bicycle. I couldn’t wait to try the bicycle die with the colored premium craft foils – a bicycle just has to be metallic! With the Tour de France coming up, I was thinking of ways to feature multiple bikes together in a project. I was so happy with this idea for a clock – it’s a super cute way to upcycle an old record and the bicycles travel ‘round and ‘round the perimeter to remind me every day to enjoy the ride! Watch my YouTube video tutorial to see how to make this clever clock!

Supplies

Spellbinders In’Spire Bicycle Die
Spellbinders Craft Foils
Artisan X-Plorer Die-cutting Machine
Clear gel glue
White card stock
10” diameter round old record
Decoupage medium
Clock movement kit
Die-cut 1” round numbers
1” round epoxy stickers
Paint brushes
Parchment paper
Brayer
Inkjet-printable film
Glue stick
Alcohol ink and felt applicator

1. Trace the record on to white card stock and trim out the circle. Paint a thin coat of decoupage medium on the record and cover the record with the card stock. Use a brayer on top of parchment paper to smooth it out and set aside to dry.

2. To die-cut a bicycle from a sheet of craft foil, place a scrap piece of cardstock under the die (like a shim) on the base plate, place the foil on top, then add the cutting plate and run it through the machine. Remove the cut foil bicycle from the die; repeat for 12 bicycles.

3. Punch through the cardstock to open up the hole in the center of the record. Check to see if the bolt from the clock movement fits through the hole. If the hole is too small, carve a bit out with the tip of a craft knife to enlarge the hole.

4. Position the bicycles evenly around the perimeter of the record – make sure you have a wheel properly placed at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock first. Cover the back of each bike with a thin coat of glue and press into place with all the wheels an even distance apart. Use a clean parchment sheet and the brayer again to secure all the little parts of the bicycle.

5. For the numbers, cover the round paper die-cuts with epoxy stickers. Glue each number inside a wheel so they’re spaced evenly all the way around.

6. Print out the sentiment in reverse on to inkjet film and use a glue stick to adhere it, ink side down, to the face of the clock and press it smooth.

7. Dab some alcohol ink on the hands from the clock kit if you want to change the goldtone color.

8. Follow the instructions on the package of the clock kit to fit all the pieces together on to the clock face.

This flower corsage is actually quite versatile – you can pin it to your lapel, use it on a gift package, or embellish the lid of a box or jar with it. I combined three different sets of Spellbinders dies to create this one-of-a-kind paper flower corsage.

Watch my Spellbinders Paper Flower Corsage YouTube video tutorial!

Supplies

Spellbinders Grand Calibur diecutting machine
Spellbinders Nestabilities Majestic Elements – Opulent Ovals die set
Spellbinders Shapeabilities – Foliage Two die set
Spellbinders Shapeabilities – Spiral Blossom One die set
Green and yellow cardstock
Crinkly handmade art paper
Glitters – green and yellow
Small paintbrush
Craft glue
Buttons, small bead and bling
Pencil and small cylindrical vial

1.  Die-cut a medium solid oval from green cardstock and a smaller lacy-edge oval from yellow cardstock – glue the yellow on top of the green oval, off-center to create a base for the corsage. Die-cut some of the smallest ovals to use as accent leaves.

2.  Die-cut two spiral blossoms from crinkly art paper. Starting with the outside end, wrap one spiral around a pencil. Keep the bottom edge of the spiral flush against itself and add a little glue in a few spots as you coil it around the pencil to create a tight bloom. Slide it off the pencil and let dry.

3.  Make a larger bloom with second spiral by wrapping it around a small vial (I used my glitter container) instead of a pencil.

4.  Die-cut a variety of leafy foliage vines from the green and yellow cardstock. Brush glue on the leaf tips and sprinkle glitter over the glue.

5.  Stack and glue 3 buttons together with a smaller one on top, then glue the stack inside the hole of the larger bloom. Add glitter to the tips of the petals.

6.  Glue a small bead inside the center of the smaller bloom.

7.  When all the glitter and glue is dry, arrange the blooms, accent leaves and vines on the oval base as and glue into place as desired.

8.  Glue on some crystal bling accents in a few places; glue a pin finding to the back if you plan to wear it.

The textural symmetry of this art panel is just as inspiring to me as all the words on the metal tags! I love things that are even and orderly, but I also love things that are rough and distressed.

I’ve developed a new penchant for pendants…I am head over heels in love with Spellbinders’ bezels and foils in the Media Mixáge line. I really like contrasting the distressed gold and bronze tone of the metal bezels with more delicate pink papers, beads and foil.  The painted glass focal beads in the dangle look great with the sparkle and shine of the glittery glaze inside the bezels.

Watch my Media Mixage Pendant YouTube video tutorial!

 

Materials

Spellbinders Media Mixáge Oval Bezels
Spellbinders Media Mixáge Oval Dies
Spellbinders Media Mixáge Interlock Texture Plate
Spellbinders Media Mixáge Foil
Spellbinders Media Mixáge Ephemera Paper
Spellbinders Artisan Explorer machine
Assorted large focal beads
Assorted small spacer beads
Assorted metal charms
Two 15″ lengths of thin silk ribbon
Jump rings, eye pins, head pins, clasps
Jewelry pliers and snippers
Clear metal/contact glue
Clear glaze or resin
Scissors
Clear craft glue
Wood skewer
Sanding block
Clear glitter

1.  To make a long rolled paper bead, cut a 2″x 6″ tall, skinny triangle from a patterned sheet of ephemera paper. Starting at the flat end, roll the paper snugly around a skewer, adding a little clear craft glue as you go. Rub a little glue around the outside the the bead to seal, slide off skewer and let dry. Make two paper beads – one for each side of the pendant.

2.  Use metal/contact glue to adhere a flat round clasp finding to the back of the large oval on the long side, so the oval can hang horizontally, let dry.

3.  Die-cut an image from the ephemera paper with the smallest oval die, glue the paper inside the oval bezel and let dry, then apply a thick layer of glaze or resin on top and float a couple tiny beads at either end of the oval bezel. Let dry until clear and hard.

4.  Die-cut a piece of colored foil with the largest oval die, then emboss it on the texture plate. Lightly sand the embossed pattern on colored side so some of the silver underneath shows through to accentuate the pattern. Glue it inside the largest oval bezel, let dry.

5.  Glue some larger charms and beads on the foil inside the oval bezel, let dry, then apply a thick layer of glaze or resin on top of the embossed foil, filling in around the charms and beads. Sprinkle glitter lightly on top and let dry until clear and hard.

6.  Thread one end of one ribbon through one side of the large oval and glue the ribbon tail (about 1.5″) to itself, let dry, then string a paper bead with 2 small accent beads down close to the bezel loop, over the glued area. Trim the ribbon end to a sharp angle to thread it through the smaller accent beads. Repeat on the other side.

7.  Attach large focal beads and smaller spacer beads as desired above and below the small oval bezel to create a decorative dangle, then attach the dangle to the bottom of the large oval bezel.

8.  Tie the opposite ends of each ribbon to one half of a clasp with a tight double knot and secure each knot with a drop of clear craft glue.

Jamie shows how easy it is to add color to adorable little wooden die-cuts of mushrooms, planes, leaves…so many cute shapes that come in wood divider trays you can alter. Yay for no-waste packaging!
