Fun cards with simple shape dies – Spellbinders Colour Block Mini Shapes

Spellbinders have released some fun new Colour Block Mini Shapes and they are so fun to play with. I’ve had so much fun but combining them with some new die-cutting glitter foam sheets. These have so much shine and even after die-cutting there is still lots of dimensions left in the die-cut. It uses all these supplies to create some fun a bright cards that you can switch up for any occasion you need. So let’s get started!

This post was produced as part of design team work with the Spellbinders Club Influencer group where I'm given supplies to use. The information provided is based on my own personal experience - I am not an expert.

Fun cards with simple shape dies

Start off by die-cutting the Colour Block Mini Drops shape die set out of the Peacock and Tropics Glitter Foam Die-cut sheets multiple times. Do this just the full shape die in the set. In addition die-cut the framed drop die out of Mirror Gold card stock from the die-set.

Next, start to adhere the full drop glitter die-cuts onto a white card base, alternating the colour on each line and overlapping the drops to create a feathered look. Do this so two thirds of the card base is filled. In addition, embellish each full die cut with a framed drop die-cut out of the mirror gold card stock.

To finish this card off, add two foiled sentiments using the Mini Everyday Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate set and trim these down, matting them onto strips of gold mirror card stock. Lastly embellish with gold matte sequins.

To create this card die-cut the Colour Block Mini Shape Diamond die (diamonds frame die) out of Peony Pinks and Painted Desert Glitter Foam Die-cut sheets. In addition die-cut the full diamond die out of white card stock.

Adhere each alternative diamond frame onto one of the white diamond die-cuts. Alternate the colours to create a gradient pattern on the card. The colours follow this pattern on the card: 

Foam mount each diamond onto a whitecaps base and create a gradient pattern up the card until two thirds of the panel is covered. Finish the card with another foiled sentiment on black card using the Mini Everyday Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate set and embellish with gold matte sequins.
