Spellbinders’ Fair Winds Collection featuring Guiding Light

Hello friends! The Guiding Light Die Set from the Fair Winds Collection is gorgeous and is perfectly paired with the Uncharted Waters Stencil Set. I love lighthouses and how each one is unique in architecture, colour, and even the number of towers. Whether they are square, round, rectangular or even octagonal, each one is a beautiful feature on an ocean landscape and has a fascinating story to tell.

  • I started with a panel of Bristol Smooth Card Stock larger than A2 size to stencil Uncharted Waters. Distress Oxide Inks were applied with blending brushes.

  • Ocean Stencil - Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans

  • Rocks & Clouds Stencil - Hickory Smoke

  • Rock Detail & Land at Horizon Stencil- Shaded Lilac, Iced Spruce

  • Trees & Rock Detail Stencil - Mowed Lawn, Black Soot

  • Sky Stencil - Tumbled Glass

  • Waves Stencil - Pigment White Ink

  • To create the card base, the large die from Arch Labels & Tag was used to cut white card stock that was folded in half. The die was positioned so the top the arch was overhanging the crease before die cutting. Using the same die, white card stock was cut and the arch adhered to the shaped card base.

  • The next smallest die was set to cut black card stock. It was adhered to the card front.

  • The die that was one size down from the previous one, was use to cut the stencilled panel.

  • The stencilled panel and black sheet foam were cut with the 4th consecutive die,

  • After the outer stencilled arch was adhered to the black one, the foam mounted, stencilled panel was adhered to the card front.

  • The sentiment from Water You Up To? was stamped on the panel.

  • The two rocks and lighthouse from Guiding Light Die Set were coloured with a combination of Pawsitively Saturated and Distress Oxide Inks. For the rocks, Earl, Charcoal and Shaded Lilac were used. The lighthouse was coloured with Earl, Black Soot and Cherry.

  • The rocks were adhered to the card front. The one on the right was popped up with foam squares so the lighthouse could be nestled in.

  • The card was finished up with the die cut seagulls.
