Spellbinders 12 Days of Stitchmas – Day 2

Hi card making friends and welcome back.  Today I’m sharing Spellbinders 12 Days of Stitchmas Day 2 of this fabulous Advent Calendar.  It’s so exciting to cut open the box each day to see what the die set is and then create with it.  I hope you are enjoying the daily inspiration videos as well.  it so fun seeing what the design team comes up for their day.

Spellbinders, 12 days of Stitchmas


When I opened Door #2 I was so excited to see it was a candle and holly set.  I dove right in.


Spellbinders 12 Days of Stitchmas Day 2


Our directions were to create something with just the stitched dies, and then a second project with anything Spellbinders added in.  So, I cheated, LOL – laying it out there right now.  I added the Essential Arches Dies and a beautiful Silver Glimmer Sentiment from Yana’s Christmas Sentiments, LOL

Spellbinders 12 Days of Stitchmas Day 2 – Tree Ornament.

Start by die cutting all the elements, two candles, 6 leaves and 3 berries.

Next, ink blend the pieces with Distress Oxide Inks and then attach them to the base.

Distress Oxide Inks Used:

Broken China, Pine Needles, Evergreen Bough, Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade, Festive Berries.

Then, stitch the candles using the Silver and Gold thread included in the 12 Days of Stitchmas Stitch Along Add on Kit.

Next, die cut two Arches from the Silver cardstock.  Insert a piece of Blue DMC thread before gluing them together.

Finally, mount the stitched art piece to the front, and the sentiment, using foam squares to pop them up.

Start by repeating the steps in the first project above.  The exception – cutting one small Arch in Silver.

Next, cut a second arch bigger than the first one.  This will help to balance the small art piece on the much larger card front.  Embossing it also adds additional interest or “background noise”.

Then, emboss this larger arch with the Floral and Vine Embossing Folder before attaching it to a top folding A2 Sized white card base.

Finally, add Spectrum AB color Essential Gems to the center of each flame, and another glimmer foiled sentiment to the top.

Here is my video walking you through the creation of these projects.
