Sunday Drive Through America - Cards Using Spellbinders Dies
Spellbinders has some new dies that are fun, festive,and fabulous.
Just how festive? Let's take a look!
I created a card to celebrate our Fourth of July holiday
along with the strength and resilience of our beautiful country.
These cards feature two new dies from Spellbinders; Spellbinders Sunday Drive Dies and Spellbinders Kaleidoscope Strip Etched Dies.
Spellbinders Sunday Drive Die was so much fun to use. The possibilities are endless:
I want to showcase some tools I've fallen in love with when using die cuts and sequin/shaker mixes. The following tools have made my crafty life a bit more enjoyable by helping control the small bits and pieces.
Glue for small bits and pieces: First - let me tell you I have searched high and low for glue that has a precision tip for use on the most delicate die cut pieces and smallest sequin embellishments. It's gotta dry crystal clear and have amazing holding power. It cannot glob or be runny and warp the paper.
Voila! I bring you Nuvo - Deluxe Adhesive. Absolutely a game changer for me because I am in total control with no sticky residue, no stingy glue strings, and amazing gripping power.
Pick-up Tools: This is another area where I frankly struggled. I bought a few other pick-up tools and wasn't super thrilled until I tried the Crystal Ninja CRYSTAL KATANA-Pick Up Tool.
The black tip is wax and helps grip the smallest piece to enable perfect controlled placement - with no black waxy residue. Sequins? no problem. Gems? under control. Ity bity die cut pieces? a snap.
Magnetic Die Holder - Spellbinders Tool and Accessories Main Attraction is a "must have" when using small dies. Raise your hand if you have literally lost a small die somewhere on your desk while in use. Not sure how it even happens but it's real folks...just gone.
Well never again. Nope - grab the Spellbinders Tool and Accessories Main Attraction and you'll never lose a tiny die again. because it’s a handy, giant super strong magnet.
The paper used makes me happy and brings a smile to my face. Like the Spellbinders dies, it's fabulously festive;Echo Park - America Collection - 12 x 12 Collection Kit.
