Spellbinders Summer Road Trip Partner Hop

Today is the first day of the Spellbinders Summer Road Trip Partner Hop and I am thrilled to be representing Want2Scrap.  There are some great prizes up for grabs including a chance to win one of Spellbinders newly released Sapphire die cutting and embossing machines.

What better way to enjoy a summer adventure than on a pink bicycle surrounded by butterflies and birds!

I was given the wonderful new Spellbinders Sapphire PHS-507 Birds and Butterflies dies and PHD-017 Mini Fancy Tags One dies to work with.

I started by creating a 6" x 6" card base and then adhering a 6" x 6" card front from the Heartfelt Creations Celebrate the Journey Paper Collection.  I added Crystal Art Glitter with Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive to the flowers in the bicycle basket before adding the small Want2Scrap Amber Rhinestones to the center of each flower.  I added a Gun Metal Pearl to the center of each bicycle tire and added Sage Green Pearls to each of the four corner of the design paper.

Using paper from Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Patterns and Solids 6" x 6" Paper, I die cut and embossed the largest and the smallest butterfly from the PHS-507 Birds and Butterflies set.  While the dies were still in place, using a sponge dauber, I added a little color with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Worn Lipstick. I die cut and embossed the birds sitting in a row twice using green and brown paper from the Celebrate the Journey Paper Collection.  While the die was still in place on the brown paper, using a sponge dauber, I added Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain.  I then adhered the green birds first and then the brown birds slightly lower, to create a shadow effect. 

I die cut the green design paper using the PHD-017 Mini Fancy Tags One die and then die cut a cream piece of design paper with Spellbinders Standard Circles SM and matted it on the Mini Fancy Tags One and added a circle of Brown Rhinestones from the Nestabling Heart Circles - Brown Rhinestones around the center and Brown Rhinestones to each end of the die cut, before adhering it to the card front with pop dots.  I then added the small butterfly to the center of the Mini Tag, adding Sleek Strips 6" Silver Rhinestones down the center of the butterfly and Swirls Finesse - LeCreme Pearls to the bottom of the butterfly, cutting both to fit as needed. 

I then adhered the center of the large butterfly to the card and added Sleek Strips 12" Pearls - Yellow to the center of the butterfly and Swirls Finesse - LeCreme Pearls to the bottom of the butterfly, cutting both to fit as needed. With a sponge brush, I painted the Adventure - Fancy Chipboard Word with Leaf Art Anthology Sorbet Dimensional Paint and then adhered it to the card front with Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive.   Finally, out of seam binding I created a bow.  I also added some cream twine to the Want2Scrap Antique Silver Butterfly Charm, added it to the bow, and adhered it to the card front.

I hope you have enjoyed your adventure today with Want2Scrap and Spellbinders!  For your chance to win and complete details, please visit the Want2Scrap Blog.
