Stamperia Winter Tales Mixed Media Folio with Spellbinders 3-D Geo Quilt Embossing Folder
Hello, Friends! I’m just popping in quickly today with a surprise project share for this Stamperia Winter Tales Mixed Media Folio. Wintry blues are among my favorite hues. I think that’s what first drew me to Winter Tales when it came out. I’ve made loads of projects with this beautiful collection because I enjoy working with it so much. This time, I added some fun mixed media effects with the new Simon’s Geo Quilt 3-D Embossing folder from Spellbinders.
I’ll be honest with you: at first this folder had me scratching my head. But once I ran it through my machine with a piece of test paper, I was instantly hooked. It’s perfect for winter projects thanks to the deep quilting effect it leaves behind. I’ll talk about how I added even more depth and dimension to the design in the project share video below.
Silver Bells…and Charms!
What is it about dangle charms that makes a project so special? Is it the lovely sound the charms make as they gently brush against one another? The shine? Who knows? But I do love to add charms to the spine of a folio or album. And since the silver jingle bells in this grouping really jingle, it’s extra fun!
A Peek Inside
Here’s a look at the inside of the folio. More gorgeous winter blues draw me right into the pages with a wish to see more. How about you?
One of the challenges of working with Stamperia 12×12 papers is the size of the images. It’s always a fun challenge to figure out how to use those gorgeous images in a smaller format like this 5 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ folio. I’ll tell you how I put this dimensional page together in the project share video. But I find it very cool that even though the page is completely flat, it still has lots of dimension.
Deluxe Tea Party in a Box
Friends, you had to know that tea would be lurking somewhere in this project. And yes, I created a lovely Tea Party in a Box on the center panel. It’s filled with all the usual goodies plus a few extras because…well, Christmas! You’ll get to see what’s behind door #1 and #3 in the video tour.
