My newest Spellbinder Die


I picked up the Contemporary Hearts Spellbinder die over the weekend when I was at my lss (local scrapbook store).  What fun!!!  I started using some scraps that were laying around to just try it out.  Below is my first project made with scraps from October Afternoon paper.



I combined this challenge with todays SCS (Splitcoaststampers) challenge to make faux suede paper.  It's a really easy technique - simple cut your paper to size, then run it along a table edge and keep curling it back and forth until the core of the paper starts to break down.  Then seperate the layers to reveal a suede-like texture on the inside.

The second card was combined with more October Afternoon paper for a coordinated look.   I added lots of bling to this in the form of rhinestones, glitter and gel pens. 

Which one is your favorite?

Thanks for looking!

Both are great cards, but I do have a favorite--since you asked. I like the first one because it uses my favorite colors, earth tones. I can't keep up with all the dies--this one looks really great!
