Unboxing NEW Spellbinders Scout & Making a Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

I’ve got a wonderful brand-new tool to show you today! We will be unboxing the brand-new Spellbinders Platinum Scout Die Cutting Machine! Once we have taken a look at this little wonder, we will be using the 3D Embossing Folder and Floral Die Set that come with this machine to create an elegant card!

Next, let’s get started by creating a card using these fun new products! We will be using the Vicki Boutin Cosmic Watercolor Sets to create a beautiful shimmery background. We will use a simple watercolor technique that anyone can do! We will also add some of these same colors to a scrap piece of cardstock so that we can die cut some leaves and flowers.

Let’s use our new Scout to emboss this pretty 3D Embossing Folder and to do our die cutting (all included with the machine). You will see how easy it is to use this adorable little machine. It comes with the same Universal Plate System that we use with the Platinum 6 Die Cutting Machine. It works exactly the same way so there is no learning curve. We can add some additional color to the flowers, do a bit of sculpting and add a pretty gold center to each of these.

Off camera I used my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System to foil a gold “Congratulations” sentiment using the Spellbinders – Essentials Glimmer Sentiments.

We can quickly assemble this elegant slimline card! As a finishing touch we can sprinkle a few metallic circle centers to the embossed flower as well. This will just bring everything together!

Art Impressions Tropical Window Card

Hello Ai Fans!!!

For todays card and video we will be creating a window card with a beautiful nautical feel! We will be using the Art Impressions Lighthouse Circlet MTF (4979) set to create the window with the beach and fence and also to create the wonderful ocean scene and sentiment.

To set the scene for our ocean theme we will use a stencil to create the navy blue striped background and then to spice up the card a little bit we will add a tropical leaves frame and some beautiful tropical flowers!

We will add a pretty bow made of some white twine and add a few gems for some sparkle and elegance!

To ink up the background and the tropical leaves frame and flowers we will be using some pretty mini ink pads from the Hero Arts collection!

The coloring will be done using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens as listed here: Blender, Haze Blue, Cobalt Blue, Persian Blue, Deep Blue, Lt Gray, Green Gray, Beige, Mid Brown, Deep Green, Deep Red

Todays card was inspired by the Current Art Impressions Blog Challenge – Oceans of Fun! The challenge is to create a card with a fun water element…this can be anything you want including rain, ponds, oceans, puddles, or anything else you can come up with…just have fun!!! Please join in on this fun challenge by creating your own project or just by checking out all of the fun cards that your crafty peers have created!
