Spellbinders Sneak Peek of New Card Creator Dies


Welcome Friends! I am so excited to be taking part
in the Sneak Peek for Spellbinders.
As the licensed designer for these dies, it is my pleasure to introduce
the Newest Card Creator Dies!

Here is my first project I created with the new
Locking Loops Dies.

Be sure to read all the way thru for
 instructions and a video for creating this card.

Supply List:

Spellbinders A2 Locking Loops S5-175
Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B S5-132 (Die #3)
Spellbinders Classic Squares Large S4-126 (Die #2)
Spellbinders M-Bossabilities EL-004 Imperial
Cindy Echtinaw Designs Spellbinders Matching Clear Stamps
Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Black Soot and Walnut Stain


I started with an A2 Black Card Base.  Then cut and embossed all dies
as listed in my Supply List
Layer Locking Loops dies as show onto A2 Card Base


Take M-Bossabilities Imperial folder and open flat. Lay
Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B S5-132 (Die #3) in the die with cut side up
place a Tan embossing mat & Raspberry spacer plate over top and run thru Grand Calibur it will emboss the design inside but not the edges as shown


Take Distress ink and Ink blending
tool and ink over raised embossed design leaving card stock in die.


Take Distress inks and ink grosgrain white ribbon and attach to center of black ribbon using Scor-Tape. Feed ribbon thru Locking Loops Ribbon die then attach to
embossed piece. Use pop dots to attach to card front.


Stamp Sentiment onto Square Die and add pearls.
I colored my pearls using white pearls and Copic marker 100 .
This close up view shows the dimension to this card and the beauty of
the Locking Loops dies.


HERE IS THE STEP BY STEP VIDEO 
if you learn easier this way.
 Warning its a long one - 9 minutes :)





Here is another sneak peak of the NEW Beautiful A2 Rounded Corner Dies set A & B

Below my card is a video showing you how to use these
NEW Rounded Corner Dies to create the weaved
die in the center and how to use two of the D-Lites Medallion Two
dies to create the background for the weaved rounded corner piece.

A step by step instruction video
on how to make the card above.


Happy Creating!
Cindy

Such awesome card here Cindy, I absolutely love it, and I agree, you are such a clever bunny to create these, thanks so much for that.

Post "long" videos anytime-- the time flew by. Love your new design. I'm curious how one becomes a designer of these things. Its so inspiring-it makes me want to give it a go. Love the use of distress inks- just entered that chapter for my own creating and loving it- so excited to learn new ways to incorporate the stamp effects.
