{Spellbinders} February 19th 2018 Blog Hop + VIDEO + Giveaway

Welcome to the Spellbinders February 19th 2018 Blog Hop! We are celebrating the release of two amazing collections, Handmade by Stephanie Low and Die D-Lites (Feb). I'm sharing a video tutorial here and on my YouTube Channel, using the Party Food dies from the Die D-Lites (Feb) collection. I'm pretty sure you'll start to feel hungry after seeing how realistic the food looks. LOL I also got to play with the Platinum 6 die cutting machine and it's amazing!

My video tutorial does most of the talking so I won't write too much about how I made these cards. I used all of the dies that are included in the Party Food set.

The first card features the pizza dies with the Italian sentiment 'Ciao!' for hello (and goodbye). The second card features the taco dies with the Spanish sentiment 'Gracias!' for thank you. I added secondary sentiments to both cards. 

All of the ink colours and supplies are listed below for your convenience.

Be sure to visit all the stops on this hop for loads of inspiration from these ultra-talented designers and leave comments for many chances to win!

{Technique Tuesday} Design Team Announcement

Hi, everyone! I have some very exciting news!! I'm thrilled to be joining the Technique Tuesday family as part of the 2018 Design Team. I'm so honoured to be surrounded by such stellar designers and I look forward to sharing loads of fun cards like this one.

I combined the flamingos from Floyd & Frannie with shoes and a purse from Sassy Fashion. I used some creative masking to fit the booties on to Floyd's feet and loop the purse around Frannie's neck. LOL I used distress inks and loose watercolouring to add colour to the scene.

Sneak peeks for the March 2018 Release begin on February 27th so stay tuned. Thanks so much for stopping by!
