Gina K Designs team would like to welcome to you this special Spellbinders Thank You Blog Hop!! Recently Spellbinders generously gifted each member of our Design Team with the amazing new Grand Calibur! What an exciting gift! The entire design team is enjoying this fabulous machine! We have made some special cards and projects to showcase the new Grand Calibur and why we are loving it so much! Thank you so very much Spellbinders!"
Hello and welcome! Did you get a chance to see what the fabulous Sharon Harnist created? Isn't she amazing? I just love my new Grand Calibur from Spellbinders, and as you know I've been having a great time coming up with some fun 3-D projects that I could never do with my old, small machine, like this gable box from a few weeks ago.
Today I have another 3-D box to show you, along with a matching card. I used my Grand Calibur, from Spellbinders, to cut all the Nestabilities and Spellbinders' dies shapes. It is so wonderful to have a machine that will cut a full size sheet of card stock and the ability to make some larger boxes with shaped tops. The possibilities seem endless!
Labels Nine, Large Scallop Oval Nestabilities and the Fleur De Lis Pendant Die. One of the things I love most about the Grand Calibur is how well it cuts detailed pendant shapes. With the Grand Calibur, it cuts perfectly in one pass!
Grand Labels Four and the regular, Labels Nine Nestabilities. You wouldn't believe the different box designs you can come up with just from the Grand Labels Four set. I made four box shapes using the different sizes and they all have a different look just by changing the dimensions and die sizes. For this box, I used the largest of the Grand Labels Four.
Look at the beautiful side detail you can create! It gives it such a finished look compared to most box designs. Below, I have instructions on how to make this box, but first, hop on over to see what my talented team mate, Valerie has to show you.
Pure Luxury Ivory card stock, using the largest Grand Labels Four Nestabilities die with my Grand Calibur.
After scoring, I folded and creased on the score lines, then cut for the two tabs on either side.
Sending Sunshine, with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with Copics. I started with Y17 where I wanted the deepest color.
Pop Dots, right over the punched hole where I fed the ribbon through. The butterflies are from Sending Sunshine and were also color with Copics and cut out.
Thank you so much for stopping by and a very special thank you to Spellbinders for the amazing Grand Calibur! In case you missed it above, Valerie is next up on the hop. You won't want to miss what she has to show you!
Have a wonderful day!
