Last week was one of dreams! The Creative Team and I have been just waiting to roll out some inspiration for 3D Vignettes. Of course we needed to wait until your local retailer and favorite online retailer had them in stock. If they don’t have them, let them know you’d like them! (Hint, hint: I have it on good authority that the dies are now available on the Spellbinders Website right now – you can see them HERE) Today I’ll share the die winners and can’t wait to share the 3D Vignette Number inspiration and I have a card of my own to share as well!
Today, the Creative Team is showing you new dies but I never forget that you may have purchased some of the ones I designed a while ago. Today I’m sharing a go-to style of card of mine – cream and gold with one central focal panel. I’m using Hannah Elise Layering Frame, Francesca Label, and Graceful Damask Border. I used Hemstitch Ovals here but you can use any oval in your stash. This is the type of card that everyone can do!
Lets Make a Layered Card:
- Create a card base that is 5.5″ x 7.5″.
- For the bottom layer cut a panel to 5-1/8″ x 7-1/8″ and mat with gold.
- Create a foundation pattern by cutting Graceful Damask Border back to back – it will yield a 2/1/4″ element – you’ll need two. (If it seems difficult to cut two Damask Borders back to back, then simply cut four Damask Borders).
- Use doubly stacked foam tape strategically on the backside of the borders to adhere to card base, cutting small strips that cannot be seen from the front side or the gold layering focal element cut and emboss one Hannah Elise Layering Frame
- For the detail layer of the gold layering cut and emboss one Francesca Label
- Adhere the pairing to previous layer and card base with doubly stacked foam tape.
- Cut the smallest cutting rim from Hemstitch Ovals for your sentiment and attach with doubly stacked foam tape.
- Embellish with ribbon and flowers

On another note, we have a set of winners whose prizes have not gone out yet, but will go out this week with a bonus die I’ll slip in for their patience and long, long wait. My apologies, I needed to wait for new stock to arrive and was overwhelmed with some design deadlines. I only hope some extra little goodies will make up for my failure. Just acknowledging those past winners and saying I’m so sorry – your dies are on the way!!

And now on to the Creative Team, they are sharing some inspiration as well!!
The Creative Team has a treat for you this week, “We Have Your Number”. There was so much to show with our introduction to 3D Vignettes that we didn’t have time to give a hearty introduction the Filigree Numbers – we thought they deserved a round of their own. The numbers are large at almost 2 inches. They fit perfectly in all of the 3D Vignette Grand Bases but that’s not all! Have a look at this weeks inspiration:
Thanks so much for joining us for all the fun!!! More inspiration to come!!
Oh my goodness! Everything is so gorgeous today!!!! Pink and cream and silver and pink and all of the wonderful filigree everywhere. Just beautiful!
OMG what can I say there all beautiful
Love the numbers so versatile can be used for all occasions. All the cards are stunning. Congrats to all the winners. Quinty girl
Just Gorgeous! So versatile and beautiful. I love how delicate looking these cards are.
Your cards are the outward expression of your inner heart, creativity, and beauty. I love your work. God bless you to keep creating and sharing. Thank you.
Awesome! Lovely set of numbers, too.
Sorry for missing out on the fun, but I am dealing with the possibility of having a rare cancer and possible removal of my gallbladder. So I am asking all of you to keep me in your prayers.
I am absolutely loving all the these lovely cards and dies. Such adorable little birthday cards.
There is only one word that describes ALL of today’s posts, STUNNING! ?. THANK YOU to all the team
Hi Becca, I have to say I started to read your blog today & only got to the 4th line……… You see I had to leave your blog because I got distracted after what I read & had to go shopping (woops) lol Once I did a little damage to my credit card purchasing these gorgeous dies I came back. I have to say I love them all but love the Filigree numbers. I did not yet have a number set that was a little larger for cards. All the cards here are beautiful. Now to play the waiting game till they arrive! Have a lovely week! x
Oh Noelene, you so made me smile, when you said you have to go. I love what the ladies did with the filigree numbers too!!
Congratulations to all the winners.
I’m loving these number dies. So versatile and so effective. This die release is the nicest I’ve seen for a long time.
Looking forward to adding some of these to my collection.
Squeee! I’m jumping up and down, not just because I won (thank you very much!), but because I got my order in for the 3d Vignettes!! Oh happy day!!! The only thing that could make today better would be instant shipping so I could play with them right NOW!!! lol! Thanks again!!

I love these numbers and all the design team have done them proud. They are all simply stunning. As always, Becca your talent has shone through with all the dies in this collection. I have a ‘big’ birthday coming up and I will be ‘suggesting’ these numbers would be a great birthday present, as well as some of the other dies in this collection!
(sound of jaw dropping) These are absolutely incredible. I too will be hitting the “add to cart” button in a moment….the inspiration today was just what I needed to kickstart a few more of my cards. I have been re-organizing the craft room so I will be leaving a special place open for these lovely dies.
