Spellbinders – Photosynthesis Release Day

Happy Friday my friends! Today is release day for the Simon Hurley Photosynthesis collection with Spellbinders! I got to play with a few of the products in this release and they are so easy to create with but fun and beautiful too! Today I have two cards featuring the new Daffodil Frame dies and Must-Have Sentiments glimmer plate.

First of all, the new Must-Have Sentiments glimmer plate is one plate that has six sentiments and a coordinating die that cuts them all out at once. It’s fantastic and pure genius! I tried some simple silver foil on black cardstock and beautiful teal on white cardstock and now I have a bunch of sentiments ready to go!

This first card is a shaker but has no bulk. No foam strips or anything. I cut the daffodils from a white A2 cardfront and ink blended it green. Then I used the flower and stem dies to cut coordinating pieces from yellow and green cardstock, adhering them with liquid glue. Then I cut the daffodils and frame from yellow cardstock, trimmed the flowers out so I just had the frame and glued it around the edge.

I created a little glitter pocket using an acetate sleeve I usually put my finished cards in and adhered it on the side of my card. I trimmed the right size window out of a piece of white cardstock and adhered it over the glitter pocket to hide the ugly parts.

Last of all, I added my glimmered sentiment with foam squares and also adhered a few gold baubles around the design.

This daffodil frame is absolutely perfect for a mini slimline card, so I just had to create one my first go-round with it. This time I cut the daffodils and frame from green cardstock and then cut the leaves from a lighter green and flowers from yellow and orange. This time I added a little dimension to the die cut pieces with copic markers.

Next, I trimmed a piece of white cardstock to 2.5×5.5 inches and inked it up with peacock feathers and salvaged patina distress oxide ink. I spritzed the panel with water, blotted it dry and flicked white paint on the panel as well.

Once the panel was dry, I popped it up on a 3×6 mini slimline card base with foam tape. Then I added the daffodils with foam squares too. Last, with a combo of liquid glue and foam squares I added a glimmered sentiment to the bottom right side.

Be sure to check out the whole Photosynthesis collection. It’s beautiful! I will have a few more cards for you using more products in the release very soon!
