Hi everyone! The Gina K Designs team would like to welcome to you this special Spellbinders Thank You Blog Hop!! Recently Spellbinders generously gifted each member of our Design Team with the amazing new Grand Calibur die cutting machine! What an amazing and exciting gift and believe me each one of us LOVE it!! We have made some special Spring themed cards and projects to showcase the new Grand Calibur and why we love it so much. Thank you so much Spellbinders!
If you are following the hop, you should have come here from the very talented Melanie Muenchinger's blog. If you missed anything along the way, you can find the master blog list over on Gina's blog!
My first card uses the little chickies image from the Basket Blessings set. Aren't they the cutest?!? And the detailing in the eggs is drawn in, so they are super easy to color.
Here is a picture of all the Spellbinders die cuts I used on the card. See how they ALL fit on the Cutting Plate? This is what I LOVE about the Grand Calibur. The Plate is 8.5x11 and it is big enough to do all the card die cuts in one swipe!!
My next card uses the set, Bug Me Anytime. I love this cutie little set! Lots of fun happy sentiments and images -perfect for spring. I inked the flower puff in brown and then took a pink ink to the edges.
Here are the Spellbinders dies I used for this card.
So your next stop along the hop is the fabulous, Nina Brackett!!
