Spellbinder Samples

This week's coupon is for 25% off of all Spellbinders! in case you don't know what Spellbinders are, they are wafer thin dies that can be used with your Sizzix Big Shot machine. They are known for their Nestabilities line where you get several sizes of the same shape die (i.e. ovals, circles, scalloped circles, hearts, etc.). This is especially useful when you want to mount one shape onto a slightly larger sized same shape. The dies are only outlines of the shape, so you can easily see your image through the die and can easily place it where you want it cut. Once you start using these dies, you will get hooked and find all kinds of uses for them.

The Honu card featured here was cut with a scalloped circle Spellbinders die. The card was cut keeping the fold in place, so that it would be one piece instead of two. As you can see, several of the scallop circle dies were used in different sizes. The Honu is a Dreamweavers Stencil that was colored using Versacolor Inks and given dimension using the stencil paste.

The second card featured here is by a regular customer, Don Barnes. He created this card by using the Spellbinders heart dies and shaped them into a clover for St. Patrick's Day. How clever! The vines were cut using a Sizzix die. Happy (early) St. Patrick's Day!
