I love my Spellbinder dies, and I am constantly adding to my collection.
Over the past several weeks, I’ve added some of Christina’s video tutorials using a small number of Spellbinder dies. Here is the list of dies Christina uses:
Spellbinders Nestabilities Mega Dies, Labels 20
Spellbinders Mega Dies, Parisian Motifs
Spellbinders Parisian Accents
Spellbinders Edgeabilities, Classic Bracket
Spellbinders Spiral Blossom One
Spellbinders Shapeabilities Dies, Foliage
Spellbinders Grand Impressabilities Flower Delight Template
I already had the Foliage die, and have since purchased the Spiral Blossom One die, as well as the Edgabilites Classic Bracket. I now have the Parisian Motifs and Parisan Accents sets on order. That means I still need to get the Labels 20 die, which I’ve wanted for quite some time. I won’t be ordering the Impressabilities template at all, since it won’t fit into the Cuttlebug. It’s made for a large die cutting machine.
But I can’t see why you couldn’t use any embossing folder for this purpose. Keep in mind, if like me you only have a smaller die cutting machine (like a Cuttlebug or Big Shot) we won’t be able to emboss the entire surface of a large sized card anyway.
The card above uses the Edgeabilities Classic Bracket. (Click the image to see a larger view.) I’ve used it a few times now, and found it to be very versatile. If you want to ramp up the effects on your cards, this die set is a good investment. I prefer it to buying border punches, which I’ve done in the past, but with this die set, you can build on it by adding more Edgeabilities sets. Once you have more than one, you can mix and match the designs to give you a whole new look for each card you make.
To finish this post off, I’d like to share another one of Christina’s video. This card is absolutely gorgeous, and can be easily changed around to give you a whole new look.
