Spellbinders Labels 46 Decorative Elements

Hi Bloggers.

I'm heading off to Ally Pally today to help with the set up on the Creative Expressions Stand ahead of the show this weekend. If you're coming, do come and introduce yourself. It's one of my 2 favourite weekends of the year (the other being the September Ally Pally) where the whole team get together and have a good old catchup. It's very rare that we get together at any other time of the year. This time it's extra special for me as my daughter, Kathryn, is joining us to help on Sue's Rubbernecker Stand. Please be gentle with her as she gets to grips with operating the till!

As the title of today's post suggests, today's card mainly features Spellbinders Labels 46 Decorative Elements Die Set which is just so pretty. As the name suggests, it can easily be used with Labels 46 but here I've used it on it's own.

There's no sentiment on this card as it's so pretty without one. It's also quite dinky, coming in at just 6" square.

I made the flower using Spellbinders Flower Play Die Set and Aqua Card following Sue's tutorial here and here. I added Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue to the bud and the petals and sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow Glitter Jewels over.

I cut the smallest die in the Labels 46 Decorative Elements Die Set out of Coconut White Card, the middle sized die out of Aqua Card and the largest die out of Coconut White Card. I inked through the largest die with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.

 I added some 8mm White Pearls to the middle sized die cut.

I cut a Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A out of Aqua Card and added some White Pearl Corners.

Thanks for stopping by.

  35. Hello Julia

    What a beautiful card and the perfect size. I seem to produce more 6 x 6 cards these days than any other size.

    Loving the colours you have used. I am a big fan of blue and white on cards.

    I agree that this card does not need any sentiment. The card carries the message in it's loving construction.

    Have a great time at Ally Pally.
