Spellbinders Winter CHA 2015 Sneak Peek & Giveaway Day 3


 Spellbinders Winter CHA 2015 Sneak Peek and Giveaway - Day # 3


Welcome to the third day of the Spellbinders Paper Arts™ Winter Sneak Peek and Giveaway! I am so excited to showcase one of the newest die templates being released at the Winter 2015 Craft and Hobby Association trade show! You will have the chance to win the new die templates I have used by entering the contest at the bottom of this post. Join me and the ever talented Julia Stainton today for this fabulous Sneak Peek Event!


**Please Note: There is a clickable link at the bottom of this post for entering;  commenting on this post does NOT enter you into the giveaway.**

I’ve created three projects for you so that you can see the versatility of the Spellbinders dies. Whether you are just a beginner or an advanced crafter, Spellbinders die templates will stretch your creative box so to speak.

I am showcasing Spellbinders newest die, S4-498 Contemporary Circles.

My first project is a shaped card using clear card stock framed as the front panel.  I wanted to to create something fun, different and a little bold.


Supply List:
S4-498 Contemporary Circles
S6-013 5x7 Modern Stationery

Instructions:

1.  Diecut/emboss everything you will need first.  This will save lots of time.


2. This frame was created with dies 5 & 6 from the 5x7 Modern Stationery die set. (1 being the smallest, 7 being the largest)


3.  Place the clear cardstock die down.
4.  Lay the pink die cuts that were cut out using the Contemporary Circles die, over the clear card stock.
5.  Place adhesive on the backside of one of the grey framed die cuts, and adhere over the pink die cuts & clear cardstock die cut.  This will be the front panel of your shaped card.


6.  With scissors trim the edges.
7.  With the remaining framed grey die cut, place foam squares all around the die.
8.  Adhere onto the front of the card panel.


9.  Start adding the negative pieces from the Contemporary Circles die cuts, around the front of the card.  Keep adding more until you are happy.  
10.  Using a permanent adhesive, adhere the back panel together. 


11.  Score the back panel about 1 to 1 1/2 inches down from the top.
12.  Make sure the front panel is exactly how you want it, including adding a bow.
13.  Place adhesive above the score line, an adhere the two panels together.


Finished project



Here are a few more projects using the new S4-498 Contemporary Circles Die

A canvas using chalkboard paint, and using the reverse diecutting technique so that the ends match up, to create a long border.



Another shaped card, but not as intricate as the first card.
