Playing with some Cut and Emboss Folders

Spellbinders very kindly sent me some of their amazing Cut and Emboss folders, and here are some cards that I made with them.  What a great idea this is!

SB Diamond Lace Frame

supplies: white and pink card stock, Diamond Lace Frame cut and emboss folder, old PSX woodblock heart stamp, labeled G-251, Zig Light Pink marker, Wink of Stella clear glitter pen, Doodlebug Tiny Heart sprinkle, adhesive foam squares 

Those of you who know me well, know that I am a heart freak, so I was thrilled to receive this gorgeous Diamond Lace Frame folder!  Aren't the details amazing?!  I chose to fill the center diamond with a long-retired crazy-quilted hanging heart, watercolored in pink.  The sentiment strip was coated in clear Wink of Stella, and I added a tiny dimensional heart just below the sentiment, then popped the whole panel above my pink card base.

SB Dotted Lace

supplies: white and Pool card stock, white glitter card stock, Dotted Lace cut and emboss folder, Hero Arts Miracle of the Holidays stamp, Concord & 9th Take a Bough snowflake die, irridescent sequins

When I looked at this Dotted Lace folder, I saw a large snowflake with snow falling all around it.  So I chose a pool cardstock with a white core so that I could sand the details to make the dots look more like snow.  I found an old favorite sentiment that fit nicely inside the middle, and then just added some glittery snowflakes and a couple sequins to draw your eye to the large design around the sentiment strip. 

Thank you so very much, Team Spellbinders, for allowing me to play with your beautiful products!
