Welcome to my stop in the Spellbinders Blog Hop!

I am sharing a project featuring the Shapeabilities Leaves So Very Generous Etched Dies from the Good Vibes Only by Stephanie Low collection. This entire collection is absolutely stunning! I just looove this entire collection and so thrilled to work with her designs. I gravitated to these leaves because they give such beautiful movement. Because the dies comes in a pair, an outline cut, and the detailed cut, it is perfect for creating strong underlayer to shine through the dies.

So, I was pretty excited to bring out the alcohol inks for the first time to play! I knew how strong and colorful alcohol ink colors can be so I thought it would be the perfect time to bring them out. I used Turqouise, Citrus, Patina, and Limeade alcohol inks, as well as the blending solution, on yupo paper, and set it aside to dry.
I die cut the outline die out of an A2-sized white card stock twice, from the top and from the bottom. This will be my top cover. I also die cut the detailed image out of white card stock twice that I used to inlay into the windows. I adhered the top cover over the alcohol ink background with foam tape. Then with the leaves, I gently curved the edges and adhered the leaves at its spine.
Finally I heat embossed ‘thank you’ from the MFT From the Heart stamp set three times onto Enchanted Evening card stock and trimmed it to 3 little strips. I adhered those in the center over foam tape. And finally I added a few drops of Nuvo Midnight Blue Gloss. These dies are SO beautiful, don’t you agree?
