Spellbinders April 2018 Blog Hop


Hi friends! Thanks for joining us for the Spellbinders April 2018 Blog Hop. I’m really excited to have you here. You should be arriving here from Svitlana Shayevich! Today I am going to share three cards using new release Wine Country by Stacey Caron collection. Let’s take a look at my first card.





  1. Created a background using a blending technique with Oxide inks on 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 some white cardstock.
  2. Use the Card creator time for one A2 card front etched dies to cut the blended background.
  3. Cut a piece of clear acetate and adhere it to the blended die-cut piece.
  4. Use the same die to cut a 300g black cardstock five times.
  5. Use a glue pen to cover the top of the first shape and place the second shape on top of the first shape. Do this steps repeatedly and be sure to cover the entire area.
  6. Attach it to the A2 sized black panel.
  7. Use the same die to cut a glitter paper and adhere wine shape pieces only to the panel.
  8. Add heart sequins inside of the wine and wine glass shape only.
  9. Cover the top with the blended die-cut piece using a pen glue.
  10. Stamp a sentiment using a black ink.




Here is my second card for today’s hop. For this card, I used a blending technique to colour them.


  1. Use a Shapeabilities Wine Charms Etched Dies to cut a 300g white cardstock. (You can get a Barrel, Grape Cluster, Wine Bottle, Wine Glass, Cheese shape pieces)
  2. Colour them using a blending technique with distress inks. (You can use any ink you have and then you will build your colour as you layer. And you should start to blend the lighter colour to the darker colour. This way is an effortlessly blending between the two shades or multi-colour shade)
  3. Create an A2 sized panel from white cardstock.
  4. Blend it bottom area only as the image shown below.
  5. Adhere all die-cut pieces with the foam tape on the panel.
  6. Stamp a sentiment using a black ink





Here is my last card for today. I wanted to use watercolour paint and show the card watercolour paint effect even though I used a die-cut piece.


  1. Use a Shapeabilities Wine Charms Etched Dies to cut a 300g watercolour paper. (I used a Wine Bottle, and Wine Glass die-cut pieces)
  2. Colour them with watercolour paints
  3. Create an A2 sized panel from watercolour paper and paint them on the center of the paper with watercolour paint.
  4. Stamp a sentiment with a white pigment ink on the black cardstock and trim it off in a banner shape.
  5. Adhere the banner to the panel.

    Ok, this is very stupid, but I just notice the oddest things. I love your cards, especially the coloring and especially the loose color of the last one. But I just went nutty over the spellbinder platinum keychain in your photos!!!! It grabbed my attention and made me laugh. So thanks for inspiring me and for making me laugh so early in the day.
