Sealed Berry Sprig

Sealed Berry Sprig

No stamps, No Copics…..


Hi All! How do you feel about new trends in card making? I think I am always a little hesitant to jump right in, in case its just a passing fad. Look, I was YEARS behind with hot foiling! Needless to say when I started to see the wax seal come along, I was intrigued but held off. Until, that is Yana Smakula started really showcasing the “sealed” series from Spellbinders. OK I was sold. This is the first card I have done with the products and let me say I need to finish this post so I can go back and play some more. I am sure you will be seeing lots more “sealed” series items! Now, on with the Show & Tell…


I chose a color scheme of bright pink/green with a deep brownish grey. The panel behind the flowers is shimmer paper, and my was seal is pearl and see thorough.


I love the way these dies are set up, with different layers. It allows you to customize the colors and adds dimension.


The raised heart in my sealed has silver paint on it from paint pen to make it stand out.

Today is my day to be over on The Rabbit Hole Designs YouTube page!


Hi Guys! That is right, today is my day to be over on The Rabbit Bole Designs YouTube page. Click HERE to view the video. I have this super fun card, and I think you will really enjoy the video. FYI it is short, not a lot of talking and it has a bunch of other cards featuring this stamp set that my Design Team friends colored up. (the video below is NOT the full one form YouTube, make sure you buzz on over there to watch the whole shebang!) Now, on with the Show & Tell…


This is not the WHOLE video from YouTube, make sure you go and watch that one also!

I admit, that when I saw this stamp I knew how I wanted to color it! Honestly I didn’t even have it in my hand yet!


A little back story on the flower centers. Originally I did them to match the flower petals….BLECH! So I picked them off with tweezers! Brave or stupid I am not sure which. Anyways they came off somewhat cleanly, then I redid them with White blizzard. This opens the centers so my flowers do not look like blobs.


The hot foiled trellis is so cool. I recently ordered matte white and black. I think this would look stunning in either color on a colored card stock, like white on Kraft. Stay tuned….
