Love, Set, Match and Ready for Creativity by Debi Adams
Hi friends! I’m designer Debi Adams and I just had to show you a few projects from my past collection, “Love, Set, Match” by Spellbinders. This all-occasion line was created to put a smile on your face and bring some happiness to the recipient. I loved putting punny sentiments into each stamp and die set so that the collection is complete in itself. Here are three different card/project ideas I created just for you. Would love to hear what your favorite is!
Not much of a scientist here but loved the silly sentiment and had to do a collection around it. This stamp and die set is called Reaction and I think it has lots of possibilities.
I stamped the beaker in a soft gray ink (see supplies below) onto 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of white cardstock to create the background. I mounted it onto 4 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ gray cardstock, and adhered it to the 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base. Three different colored, inked circles were adhered on top. I stamped and die-cut the beakers, colored them in and then attached them to the card with foam dots. I think they really bring focus to the card. Fussy cutting the sentiment into a unique shape added emphasis to the “chemistry” style of the card. Part of the sentiment was stamped in white ink onto black cardstock, and the other was stamped in black ink onto white cardstock and colored. A sprinkling of clear Nuvo drops achieved the “bubbling” effect. Can I get a “reaction” here? :).
“Near or Far” is dear to my heart because I thought of my daughter and her family in Michigan, living half way across the United States, when I drew it. I wanted to make a card that I could send to them, and really anybody, indicating that no matter where they were, I was thinking of them.
For a different application, try using the outline portion of the map die only and “coloring” the inside with fun paper. Kind of cool and unique. I chose to die cut the camper, cactus and heart to decorate the card.
Lastly is my Match Box die and Just Chillin’ set. Inspired by a gal in our office who always has some snarky things to say and seeing some similar ideas on enameled pins, I made a plan and this was the result.
The Match Box die works with nearly all of the stamps and dies in this collection as well as my upcoming “The Perfect Match” collection. Shown here, it makes a great party treat too! I die-cut and assembled the box from pink and white cardstock. I stamped the sentiment and the pills using white ink onto a piece of black cardstock that fit the top of the Match Box. I stamped and die-cut the pill using black ink onto white cardstock and colored it in with a pink marker and adhered it to the box lid with a foam dot. White Nuvo Drops embellished the lid. Of course I thought that Good ‘n Plenty candy was perfect for “pills”.
