Spellbinder’s Wax Seal of the Month for September

Hello, fellow card makers! What a gorgeous design for Spellbinder's Wax Seal of the Month, Fall Meadow! I made a pair of cards ... pretty much identical! ... because you can't just make one seal! I had a number of other projects going on so I spent a couple of hours in my happy place melting, pouring and stamping! If you are new to wax seal stamping, I have included a video tutorial for today's cards. Fall Meadow's beautiful floral design is perfect throughout the year ... not just Autumn!

The September "New Subscriber" registration window will be available September 6 - 27th while supplies last. 

  • I began by making the wax seals. From the Spellbinder's Wax Seal Starter Kit, I used the wax warmer, warming spoon and the silicone mat. The Wax Seal of the Month comes with the seal, handle and wax beads. Please take a peek at the video tutorial for step by step instructions.

  • A panel of dark brown card stock and black foam, both 4 1/2" by 5 1/2", were cut with Essential Stylish Ovals. They were stacked,

  • To create a gold frame for the window, the same oval die and the next largest one were taped together and the card stock cut. I dotted the back of the frame with Tombow adhesive and set it aside to dry. When dry, this adhesive is tacky and repositional.

  • Another panel of brown card stock was cut and embossed with Argyle Socks and adhered to an A2 sized, Kraft card base.

  • The gold frame was positioned around the oval die cut opening of the card front and this panel was adhered to the card base.

  • Distrss Oxide Inks, Carved Pumpkin, Candied Apple and Mustard Seed, were applied to a large panel of Bristol Smooth card stock (large enough for six leafy branches) using blender brushes. The ink was applied randomly.

  • The panel was 'spattered with gold embossing powder! See the Video Tutorial for this fun technique.

  • Six leafy branches from a die included in the Stitching Die of the Month were cut from the ink blended panel.

  • The lower leaves on the branches were trimmed off and three branches were tacked together in a fan shape crisscrossing the stems.

  • Using a Wax Seal Adhesive Circles, the seal was adhered over the crisscrossed stems.

  • Small black foam squares were attached to the back of the leaves and 2 large ones to the back of the seal. The leafy bouquet was adhered in the recessed oval on the card front.

  • The die cut sentiment also included in the Stitching Die of the Month was used to cut the ink blended panel. THANKS was adhered to the bottom of the recessed oval.

  • The card was embellished with Fashion Gold Embellishments.
