We are so tickled today to be introducing Vintage Treasures . You'll find this entire collection chalked full of classics!! As always, there is a rectangle, oval, square and circle that will work well with everything in your stash and are perfect for layering. Next are several embellishment sets. As you hop through all the design team links in the blog hop, you'll see each of the new dies and how we used them. You will love all the inspiration in this hop.
There is a special place in our hearts for those things kept in a hope chest. Other than a promise of the future, they symbolize things of value and keepsakes that bring back treasured memories. I delved there to find memories, filigree jewelry and keepsakes of old. From long-forgotten turn of the century jewelry to the edgings on an old tattered handkerchief, I love bringing the past into the present in a style that is ....well, timeless. These things -- bejeweled lockets, a sweet tiara and vintage adornments from long ago -- provided the sweet inspiration and restoration of some lovely, lovely Vintage Treasures.
The physical dies in this collection have an extra measure of flexibility and function. Most templates have an outer rim, and inlay and an inner rim that you can use for your sentiment.
My Project For Today:
I am so happy to introduce:
My Second Die for Today is one of my favorites with this collection:
Shapeabilities Cinch and Go V Etched Dies Vintage Treasures by Becca Feeken
Since this flower is a die set you can use with all your other favorite dies i mixed it with my first die set by just using the biggest outer die for the top of the box and then adding lots of gorgeous little handmade flowers over the ribbons. I also cut up the center piece and used that for a corner piece and also for the front clasp. The best part was it was really simple to put together.
*If you had the chance to buy the Becca Feeken box this past year this is the one. It's one of my favorites and it's perfect for a gift card.
And as to the flowers-- i cut lots and lots of them in white paper which is so easy to do since they are attached in a row. I chalked them with pink ink on the edges and then stacked them with white stamens in the center of each and glued them on the back. This die set also comes with leaves so i made those in a pale green and chalked them too and tucked them under the flowers in the center with ribbon. And of course lots of pearls.
Now it's all set to add a small gift or gift card for the happy couple. And perfect for a wedding i have coming up in June this year.
These plates are available right now on the Spellbinders website HERE
