Spellbinders Favorites to share

Recently we were given the go ahead from Spellbinders to share a few of the things that we did for them.  And after 4 years of amazing craftiness i have lots of favorites to put up to share.  Every Tuesday i will share a few things and the dies i used to create them.  Stacey was such an incredible person to be able to work for and i was lucky enough to be picked by them so i think this will be fun.

Some of my most favorite dies in the world are designed by Becca Feeken.  She has an incredible way of designing and creating beautiful things with her dies so it's a little stressful when i set out to make something with them but i think i did ok with this set.  This one is on the website right now I think and since we were always challenged to think outside the box i went for a vellum lantern for this one.

I love the intricate embossing and to make the debossing on the pattern stand out i added a bit of ink to that part of the die while it was still in it.  The corners for this one are the leftover pieces from the inside center of the die.  I cut them in half and then again.  Then i scored them and folded them to reinforce the edges and to glue on the side pieces.  The bottom is another die that i chose because the edges just went perfectly with all of it.  And it looks so pretty with an electric candle inside.

For my frame i used the same die and inking on it but added the center piece with a beautiful sentiment.  I can't say enough about her dies and how gorgeous they can make something look.  Simple paper becomes something amazing just by cutting it with one of her dies.

And lastly this one is a bridal shower card.  I layered the dies in subtle colors of aqua and added some pretty ribbon to match and also a few clear rhinestones.  I really, really love the way this one came out.  And it was fun to make so that makes it even better.

To see more of Becca's dies you can visit here on the SB website.

Thanks for stopping over and be sure and check back again next Tuesday!!
