Spellbinders April 2020 Clubs Inspiration Blog Hop


Hello, crafty friends!
I'm super excited and honoured to be joining Spellbinders for the April 2020 Clubs Inspiration Blog Hop today. If you arrived here from, Alicia Havranek's Blog, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Spellbinders Blog. We've got tons of inspiration and giveaways for you on the hop today, so keep reading till the end of this post for more information.


I have made a Pop-Up 3D Vignette Typewriter using the Amazing Paper Grace - April Die of the Month. I absolutely LOVE this die set. It's so ingenious! 
The dies for Spellbinders Monthly Clubs are exclusive to Spellbinders and you won't find them anywhere else. If you want to find out more about the Club – prices, how you sign up and what’s included, please look ——–> HERE.

To create my 3D Typewriter, I followed the step by step Video Tutorial shared by Becca Feeken. It's very simple and easy to follow and will have you creating your very own one of a kind special typewriter in a few minutes! 

I wanted to create mine in soft, pastel colours , so I chose to use Buttercream Cardstock and Baby Pink Textured Cardstock. I die cut the basic structure of the typewriter from Buttercream Cardstock, while the add-on layers were die cut from Baby Pink Cardstock as well as Gold Mirror Cardstock. No project of mine seems to be complete without Gold Mirror Cardstock - LOL! It really adds that elegant touch!

Once I die cut all the different elements of the typewriter and adhered them together, it was time to embellish it.

I die cut the sheets of paper coming out from the typewriter from the DCWV 12" x 12" Scripts and Music Notes Cardstock Stack. Then, I added some die cut words on all three layers to give it a personalized touch. The die cut words 'Hello Friend' are from a previous Amazing Paper Grace Club Kit and I combined it with the sentiment die included in this month's kit. 

To embellish the typewriter, I created some mini handmade flowers which were die cut from Baby Pink Textured Cardstock. I embossed the petals using an Embsossing Ball Tool and added stamens to the centers to give it a more finished look. I also die cut some leaves and foliage from Sweet Pear Cardstock and arranged them near my flowers to give it a cohesive look.

I also die cut few oval key rims from Gold Mirror Cardstock to give it a more realistic touch. The attention to detail in this Pop-Up 3D Vignette Typewriter Die Set is simply amazing. Each and every little add-on accessory has been included as a part of the die set, and you don't need to invest in any extra Add-On Sets to create these beauties. Well worth the money, in my humble opinion. :-)

I repeated the same process for the back side of the typewriter as well in order to give it a finished look. This little piece now sits on my desk and I plan to create some more of these and mail them to my crafty friends. This would surely brighten their day!
I hope you liked my project and are inspired to create your own! I would love to know what you think of it!
