Spellbinders' Sneak Peek of another new die:

From Design Team Member Becca Feeken, Amazing Paper Grace blog, introduces the Parisian Motifs and Parisian Accents dies that Spellbinders will introduce at CHA:

I’m thrilled to share two die template sets with you – S5-034 Parisian Accents and S5-035 Parisian Motifs.  For my first project I’ve created a card with a separate jacket.  The largest template of the S5-035 Parisian Motif set graces the front of the jacket.  The frilly motif serves as the focal point of the jacket and by cutting out the center using S4-116 Standard Circles SM (#2).  I’m able to simply interlock the largest template of the S5-034 Parisian Accents set for a matching look that is both elegant and lacey.  There are so many options with the motif and accent sets that I can see myself doing a bit of interlinking and building different shapes. 


Here you can see the enclosure card that fits inside the jacket.  It’s a big card measuring 5.5″ x 7.5″.  As decoration I used the border from S5-034 Parisian Accents, which at 9 inches in length more than accommodates my tall card.  For the frilly medallion on the card I used four of the corner piece elements found in S5-034 Parisian Accents.

The card has an simple closure – the ribbon that wraps around the back of the card comes through the center hole to be tied in a bow which secures everything inside.

The jacket features a four flap closure made using LF-110 Grand Ovals.  The jacket is designed to be flat however scoring the flaps a little bit differently will yield a jacket that can accommodate a thick card or two.

Stamps: None
Paper: Bazzill, K and Company
Ink : Antique Linen Distress Ink
Spellbinders™ S5-034 Parisian Accents, Spellbinders™ S5-035 Parisian Motifs, Spellbinders™ LF-110 Grand Ovals, Ribbon

For my next project I designed a Mothers Day gift that has a bit of a vintage flavor.  The goodie bag, made using LF-161 Grand Labels One, is embellished with a frilly flower medallion.  To accompany the bag, there is a feminine nosegay.  Both the base of the nosegay and the base of the medallion are the same, I simply changed the uppermost layer to give each some charm.

The nosegay has five twirled pink roses with long ribbon tails that are threaded through each layer of the holder.  It is made using the same base as the medallion but both pieces look entirely different, lol!

Stamps: None
Paper: The Paper Company, Anna Griffin
Ink : Antique Linen Distress Ink
Accessories :
Spellbinders™ S5-034 Parisian Accents, Spellbinders™ S5-035 Parisian Motifs, Spellbinders™ LF-161 Grand Labels One, pearls, lace, crepe paper, flower pick

I’m going to take you though how to make the dimensional lacey flower medallion that serves as the base for both the flower on the bag and for the nosegay.
