A Nesties Besties Blog Hop

Hello! Today some of the Spellbinders™ Design Team are joining together to share some of our favorite Spellbinders projects. Today, I'm sharing two projects I designed for Spellbinders using some of my favorite die template sets. First is a card I made featuring a whimsical Die D-Lites set, called Flower Burst (S2-007).

Next is a card featuring on of the gorgeous new set from the Imperial Gold line, Gold Labels Four (S5-159). These amazing die templates not only cut, emboss and stencil, they also deboss. I love this new line of die templates from Spellbinders. They are amazing!

These are incredible, Theresa. So much detail in these dies! Ps- Country Roads is one of my favorite sets of yours!

As always your projects are stunning. I love the multi colord sponging. The butterfly card is gorgeous too. Thanks for the great inspiration you provide.

Debbie said...

Both cards are so pretty. I love how you used the Imperial Gold dies. Just a gorgeous card. Your Country Roads stamp set is one of my favorites of yours.

Maryann said...

Both are absolutely gorgeous hun, and I love these new Dlite dies, and is just waiting to recieve them from Create and Craft, where hubby ordered them all for me last week he he.
My favorit dies?? That´s impossible, cause there´s so many, and I absolutely LOVE them all for different things. All my labels and all the decorative sets are gorgeous, but also some of the old medallions and borders are really awesome, so I just can´t pick one for another, as I use them all all the time, and I really LOVE them all.

Beautiful work! Spellbinders products just always make a project look so finished and elegant! I really love all the basic sets for the nice finished and embossed edges! I don't have a set that is just about banners, but I use a banner die from the Nautical Frame and Accents all the time!

Your cards are stunning (as usual). I have two favorite Spellbinders dies, at the moment. Bitty Blossoms and A2 Filigree Delight. http://myworldmysolitude.blogspot.com/2013/03/justrite-friday-challenge-092-make-it_19.html

Absolutely gorgeous projects, Theresa!! Beautiful shading behind those precious whimsical flowers and oh, the elegance of your second card!!

Crafty Moni said...

Oh-my your cards are stunning, as always:) I love the colors on your secound card. I dont have any spellbinder dies, so I haven't had a chance to play with them. But I have been considering saving up to buy some dies, they look gourgous on your cards:)

Peace, Love, & Cricut Hugs!

Beautiful work as always Theresa! The butterfly one should be framed in a shadow box...it is out of this world amazing! I think what I love about it is the color! I love that dark damon color. Not to say that the other card isn't gorgeous as well. LOL

One of my favorite Spellbinders is the Picot edge circles!!! I LOVE IT! and here is one of my favorite cards that I made using it!

jennyplace2 said...

OMG! Your cards are just so stunning! I love them. I can only cut with my spellbinders I still have not figured out how to get the silly things to emboss, I even bought the rubber mat to go with the cuttlebug. I sure hate getting old it makes things harder to figure out. Thanks for the chance to win the candy.

Love your samples! As always! Kathie Dobbins

Donna said...

Gorgeous cards, Theresa! I just saw another post using the Fancy Ribbon Threader. I think I need that die. You are such an enabler. I haven't met a Spellbinder's die that I didn't like. So all of them are my favorites. I'd love to collect them all. Your cards are so inspiring!

Kris in Alaska said...

Wow, that's a lot of gorgeous layers!

Stunning projects.

Heather Garner said...

I love the two cards. SO beautiful. I'm not sure I have a favorite, as I keep buying more. It depends on the project, but I tend to use Labels 4 and the scalloped ovals and circles a lot. Thanks for the inspiration in these cards!

tinyfeet said...

Oh wow! Love your cards, they are so elegant. I don't have many nesties, but use my scalloped ovals the most.
Thanks for the chance to win two of your stamp sets.
Blessings,

Beautiful cards! You have a wonderful style.

cjgusloff57 said...

These new dies are gorgeous! And your cards are beautiful! I only own the basic Spellbinders dies. Circles, Ovals, Scallops and the card layering dies. But, it seems I use them all the time. Like your stamp sets and hope I am lucky for a change.

Shari M said...

Love what you did as always. That is usually the first mail opened when it comes. Love my dies, but my poor ribbon set has only had a sample cut, so time to use. Thanks for the inspiration and the opportunity.

mary said...

I'm afraid that I'm going to have to buy that d-lite flower die. I love what you did with it. Thanks for sharing.

Anita Braddock said...

Country Roads is one of the most awesome stamp sets. Thank you for a chance to win it. Love your creations absolutely beautiful.

Susie Bentz said...

Such elegant cards! They are just stunning...

I love both the stamp sets - I didn't realize you were an illustratorQ

Dottie said...

Oh my goodness! You make these dies into spectacular cards. I absolutely love the color you have chosen and wish this card were coming to me in the mail! Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy; that's awfully nice of you.

Lacel said...

Particularly love the second card, though I'm really frustrated about the dies. I pre ordered them, and was sent the wrong set! Still waiting .......

Stampin_melissa said...

You are so incredibly gifted! Your craft talent leaves me in awe! (Not trying to suck-up, just telling the truth!) I love all my dies, but probably my label dies most, they make adding sentiments so much easier. I just got the Gold Label Four and love it!

Becky said...

What gorgeous cards you created with these dies. Love spellbinders :)

Anonymous said...

Breathtaking Theresa! Your sponging, stamp sets and use of SB dies is simply DAZZLING! My favorite SB die? That's hard to choose, but perhaps I use large ovals more than others :) I have both your blog candy stamp sets, so please pick one of your many other fans :* I just automatically buy your stamps <3 (Rosy in Hawaii-not really anonymous LOL)
