Spellbinders Spring Blog Hop and Giveaway Day 5


Hi everyone!  Welcome to Day 5 of the Spellbinders™ Spring Blog Hop!  I am so excited to be showing you the fabulous S4-359 Office Supplies die templates.  These dies are part of the PageMaps by Becky Feck designer collection.  PageMaps have become a go-to source of inspiration for Scrapbookers and Card Makers all over the world, and these dies are designed to coordinate with Becky's sketches!

Here is my card: Just a Note
My card uses the following Supply List:
Spellbinder dies:
·        S4-359Office Supplies
·        S5-086Bitty Blossoms
Cross Promotional Partners:
·        MyMind's Eye, Lost and Found "Portobello Road" 6x6 pad
·        WorldwinPapers, Ivory cardstock
·        Want2Scrap, Say it With Pearls 72 count -LeCreme and Say it With Pearls Finesse Swirls LeCreme
·        Clear Snap, ColorBox in Black, Charcoal and Toffee
Preferred Partner Partners:
·        GinaK Designs, Vintage Notes and Nature's Greetings stamp set

Here are all the dies for my card set out on the Base Plate.  See how easy it is to fit all the dies you need for your card with one pass through of the Grand Calibur® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine?  Saves so much time!
To add a little extra sparkle on the leaves, I embossed them with glitter embossing powder.  Here you can see I inked up the leaves while they are still in the die (this is called stenciling).
Next you pour the glitter EP over the VersaMark ink and emboss.  See the perfect "leaf veins" stenciling creates?  Love that!!  Notice the coffee filter below?  I use that to collect the extra embossing powder, and the powder slides easily back into the container without leaving a mess behind.
