[Spellbinders] New Classics March Collection - Part III - More Simple Card Ideas

Hello, there! 
It’s Marge here with you today again.
 Have you enjoyed previous posts for Spellbinders New Classics March Collection? As the third theme for this week, I'm going to share how to use diecut layering to create dimensions on your card. Here are the examples that I made geographic blossoms using various nested circle-shaped dies. By doing this, you can also build up your favorite color palette on the card.


To begin the first card, I made various sizes of diecuts out of several colors of papers using  Fancy Scallop Edge Circles Etched Dies. I gave them color gradation from yellow to orange and brown by selecting different colors of cardstocks. The smallest brown colored circle in the center was cut using the smallest die from Fancy Edged Circles Etched Dies set. Then I layered the cuts one by one using thin (1 mm thick) double sided foam adhesives to build up a blossom. I also made two- tone leaves using Textured Flowers Etched Dies Timeless Heart Collection by Marisa Job set. Sentiment was heat embossed on dark brown cardstock with white embossing powder and was cut using the coordinating die from Sentiments 1 Stamp & Die Set by Tammy Tutterow set.

I put the blossom, leaves, and sentiment on a white rectangle panel which was cut using Scored and Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies, then I adhered it on an A2 sized top folded light yellow cardstock. To maintain clean geometric look, I finished it off with minimal embellishment by adding some enamel dots.
I love the how the frame patterns change alternatively at a closer look. It is so fun and delightful to look at.

 For my second card, I made the same blossom with different color palette using Fancy Scallop Edge Circles Etched Dies, Fancy Edged Circles Etched Dies and, Textured Flowers Etched Dies  by Marisa Job set. Background scalloped panel was made from Fancy Edged Rectangles Etched Dies
I chose a sentiment from Encouraging Greetings Stamp set by Pretty Pink Posh, then stamped it on the white panel using Versafine Ink Onyx Black. 

For my third card, I used Open Scallop Edge Circles Etched Dies to build up a blossom. Other process was similar with previous card. The smallest pierced blue circle in the center was made from Scored and Pierced Circles Etched Dies.

Before closing up, I’m showing you other examples for diecut layering. In the fourth card, I used   Scored and Pierced Circles Etched Dies and Sentiments 1 by Tammy Tutterow set.

In the fifth card, I stamped Thinking of You by Tammy Tutterow Stamps on a copic friendly white cardstock, colored the images using copic markers, and then cut the panel in scalloped oval shape using Fancy Edged Ovals Etched Dies. I then foam mounted the oval on a pierced rectangle panel made from Scored and Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies with twines and enamel dots as embellishment.

In the last card, I die cut different pattern papers to give visual interest on the diecut layers, then I layered them one by one using thin double sided foam adhesives or double sided tapes. Fancy Edged Rectangles Etched Dies were used for this. I added a blue ribbon, gemstone and jewels as embellishment.
