Spellbinder Show and Tell

Hello Crafters

As promised here are a few samples from my marathon Spellbinder shows this week.  I had a slight problem with blogger yesterday and couldn't post from the studio so today I will pop four projects on.
I hope that you like them.

For this one (which I really love!) is using the Imperial Gold Circles One and the sentiment has been stamped onto the middle die of the Ornate Squares.  This is perfect for sentiments.  The Die Di-lite than I have used is the Love Locket set which has the most stunning filigree detail.  The background is harder to see but has been embossed using the Reverence folder.  The background paper is from My Secret Garden from Graphic 45 (you will see this range a lot as I have just had them delivered into the shop and have totally fallen in love with them!!)

This is the card that I demonstrated this morning with Nigel but instead of using the Distress Markers to colour as I have with this one I used Flex markers which was the first time for me - really enjoyed using these I must say.
The Die is the Flower Box Di-lite which is so cute and perfect for smaller cards when you don't want to make a huge statement.
The layer that I have put this die on is from the Locking Loops set which will be on the shows this evening - Pick of the Day.
A little embossing on the background and a touch of glaze finished the design off.

This is a little sombre but shows off the dies a treat. The dies that I used are Windows 3 and the Asters and Poppy die.  I cut everything in plain white cardstock and then kept the card in the die and stencilled through with very light Black soot distress ink.  
One of the Petite Labels 1 has been used for the sentiment.

Something a little bit different with this one as I thought a favour box would be fabulous teamed up with the Medallion 7,  Using just the inside die on the side with glitter card for backing really adds a sparkle to a box that could be used for so many different purposes - jewellery, chocolates, wedding and party favour boxes.
the top has been cut as a whole and backed again with the glitter card.
A dazzler and gems were added to finish the project off.

I hope that you have enjoyed these and please pop by tomorrow to see a few more.
The rest of my shows today are at 1pm and 4pm and then I launch the Pick of the Day at 9pm on Ideal World.  Hope that you can join me and it would be great to send an email.

Thankyou for popping by and hope to see you really soon,
Bye for now
