Making a Fancy Die Whimsical


Spellbinders has a new release of some gorgeous and versatile die sets designed by Becca Feeken. And my favorite part, they work perfectly for 5x7 (A7) cards!

I used 4 of these die sets with the June 2021  Card of the Month Kit from Spellbinders to create 4 cards- along with a brief release and review of the Beautiful Sentiment Vignette Collection. 

This is card #1 using the Forever in our Hearts Vignette die set, and I love that the die looks like a cloche that would hold fancy and delicious pastries. 

The ephemera, stamp set, and dies from the June 2021 Card of the Month Kit (Wild Hello) have a roll to play on all of these  cards!

You can see the fun ink blending and spatters with Scattered Straw, Kitsch Flamingo, and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxides.

And it is raining gems  for some sparkly confetti.

 Sentiment and ephemera are added to the inside of the card along with more spatters. 

Card #2  is not my favorite, as I did not get the colors quite right in the  frame and blending, but we are going to go with it anyway. 

The frame is from the Heartfelt Thanks Vignette die set, and this one would work on an A2 sized card also.

The ephemera makes a fun grouping.

And who doesn't love a shaker?!

Card #3- this card could be a birthday or a baby card! Full of whimsy and fun!

This is  using the Birthday Wishes Vignette die set, and I love it!

I added a trail of gems along one side, and clustered around a grouping of critters.

I added a couple more party animals to the inside of the card, which was super easy with all of the ephemera from  the kit!

Card #4- last but not least, the Romantic Chargeour die set played a starring roll in this bright, tropical vibe card. Anyone else feeling a little Miami here?

The sentiment die is from the card kit, and it is a real winner!

And the gems add just the right touch to create balance to the design. And shiny. We need all the shiny!

Inside the card, I went a little crazy with a bunch more ephemera. I used lots of ephemera on each card, and I still have gobs! 

Well, did you see the dies in a new light? Are you ready to use them to spice up your whimsical cards? I know I am!
