I Got to Film at Spellbinders!!!

So what do you do when the Spellbinders team invites you to come tour their offices and film in their studio? You go for it, right?! Well, I did, and it was awesome. Lol, not the video part; I was a nervous wreck, but meeting everyone and getting to see how the business runs was really cool. Micah and I had a great time and the wheels are spinning with all of the collaboration ideas. I can’t wait to tell you more…

Now about that video. Poor Gavin, he filmed and edited. I must’ve made him re-record the beginning a dozen times and I still sound like a choppy robot. I need to send him a box of chocolates. You can watch the video below, but I suggest you click the little setting wheel to speed up the playback. (Normally, I don’t talk while I film, so I can cut things out and speed them up. This video is real time, and I was really anxious.) In the video, I show you how to make two light-up cards, featuring our Halo Light Combo and the new Beautiful Wreaths Collection by Suzanne Hue. It really is a gorgeous collection with tons of possibilities…

At the end of the video, I showed several other cards that I made using the same lights and Beautiful Wreaths Dies and Add-ons. I created those by die cutting all of the pieces from white cardstock and coloring them with Olo Markers. I love the depth and dimension you can get. It’s like no-line coloring, but easier because you just color past the edge of the paper!

If you’d like to create cards like this, here are the supplies you’ll need…

Beautiful Wreaths Collection
Everlasting Circles Dies
Take Action Stamps
Olo Markers
Halo Light Combo
Double Thick Foam Tape

Don’t forget, you can also get your lights from Spellbinders when you order your dies…
Halo Light Combo

Here’s a look at each of the cards, including the pair I created in the video…

I love the way these turned out. Especially, the ones where I colored the die cuts. Which is your favorite? I can’t wait to see which sets you pair together and how you light them up! You can incorporate other Spellbinders sets from your stash with the wreaths too. The possibilities are endless.

Thanks for stopping by today. I’ll be back soon with more fun cards to share. And it’s not just me anymore; did you see our new Design Team? They’ll begin sharing next month, so be sure to check back often!
