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.

Love it! I just ordered the wax seal kit! I have been watching many videos with it and wasn’t going to order it (trying to watch my craft spending! not easy!) but did after watching so many videos using it! Thanks for sharing!
Love it! I have been having so much fun with the seals! You will be seeing more posts featuring them. I am even going to tech a whole class here in my community with them.
