I’m thrilled to share my Spellbinders™ Surprise Party!! project with you. I have two different cards to show you, each made with the same supplies. I thought it would be fun to show how one image can look different by changing techniques.


For my first card, I decided to layer my image using Spellbinders™ S4-246 Labels Eleven. Here’s a close up of the image.


I’ve made a video tutorial explaining how I die cut/embossed each individual layer and layered them as one image.


Die Name: Labels Eleven

Die SKU: S4-246

MSRP: $24.99

Die Dimensions:

1. 1-1/8 x 13/16”

2. 1-3/4 x 1-1/4”

3. 2-3/8 x 1-11/16”

4. 2-15/16 x 2-1/8”

5. 3-5/8 x 2-9/16”

6. 4-1/4 x 3”

For my second card, the same image was covered with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint and then sponged with ink. Using Spellbinders™ S4-246 Labels Eleven, I cut two frames to highlight the image and background panel.


    • Spellbinders™ S4-246 Labels Eleven, Spellbinders™ S5-014 Deckled Mega Rectangles Small, Spellbinders™ S5-015 Deckled Mega Rectangles Large, and S7-014 Classic Lace Border Grand
    • Downloaded Image from Twisted Papers
    • Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; Prism Herbal Garden Medium and Stormy Medium; My Mind’s Eye Life Stories “Antique Flowers” and “Green Plain”
    • Ink: Ranger Old Paper, Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap Distress
    • Accessories: Ranger Rock Candy Distress Stickles and Distress Crackle Paint, Matte Accents; 7 Gypsies Antique Brass Paper Fasteners; 1.25” 100” Silk May Arts Ribbon – Champagne from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store; Vintage Buttons

  72. Sherry, you completely, totally rock! I LOVE the technique! I’m definitely going to try it! I loved your video and all the helpful hints about lining things up and starting on the image — that’s the kind of stuff that really makes these videos useful — I think most of us can look at the thing and figure it out, but the lining it up and all that — EXTREMELY helpful! BTW, I found the contest too complicated — more complicated than just buying what I wanted! 🙂

  73. Sherry, the 3 D layered image is very cool! The detailed paper you used with the girl and words just made it all the more beautiful with it all lined up so perfectly! Thanks for the tutorial. I also liked how you made frames as a background to highlight the image in the second card. Wow, the ideas for using label templates! I really like the shape of the Labels 11 set. Thanks for sharing!

  105. Sherry this is Fantaboulous. Is that a word? If not it should be. Your videos are so inspiring!
    I’m ashamed to say I haven’t been by for awhile and was surprized to read about your cancer. I think its great you shaved your head. I would have done the same thing, bravo to you! I know what you went through I had to have cancer removed from an area near my nose, a place that sun dosent even hit. Its a little deformed now but no more sign of cancer and they said I was lucky it could have taken my entire nose! Stay strong ,get well and your hair will grow back, thats if you choose to let it!

  106. This is beautiful, an idea I am definitely going to try.

  107. Sherry – that is amazing!

  108. Just beautiful. Great Video and I’m happy to see you up and looking good!

  109. The layered technique is truly beautiful! I absolutely love it! You are amazing! Thank you for this wonderful tutorial! I will be making one soon and hope it is just a little bit as beautiful as yours!
