Acrylic Paint and Embossing Folders featuring Spellbinders’ Splatter & Painter’s Palette

Updated: Jan 13

Hello everyone! I have a set of cards featuring some new products by Spellbinder, the Splatter Embossing Folder and Painter’s Palette! These cards were SO MUCH FUN to make! The acrylic paint creates a bold backdrop for all that splatter … which, by the way, is sometimes the state of my work surface! Only me, right?! If you love lots of colour like I do, I’ve got you covered with this super fun project!

I used oversized panels of Bristol Smooth card stock to create the backgrounds. Three of the panels were ink blended with Distress Oxide inks. Distress paints (acrylic) were applied with a brayer in several thin coats to the flat side of the Splatter embossing folder.

Using Spellbinders’ Platinum die cutter, the panels were embossed using the following sandwich: the platform - embossing folder - folded letter size copy paper - top cutting plate (the bottom cutting plate was not used). To get the best coverage for the panels that were ink blended, the acrylic paint was applied to the embossing folder and run through the die cutter three to four times. Careful when opening the embossing folder to avoid the panel shifting!

The panels were trimmed to 4” by 5 1/4 “ and mounted on A2 sized card bases that had been matted with black card stock. The sentiments were created by die cutting small, ink blended panels that were coordinated with two colours of the splatters. For the panel with white splatters, the sentiment was cut from card stock inked with Mermaid Lagoon.

There are some cute elements included in Painter’s Palette. For these cards, I included the paint brush, tube of paint and one of the ink splotches. These sweet die cuts were assembled and some mounted on foam depending on the arrangement. I finished up with Nuvo Crystal Glaze on both the brush and the paint splotch.
