New Spellbinders: Light of the Soul

Hi there blog friends, as you may guess, the Spellbinders I’m showing today is a new one. I know you want to see what they look like in every day use, so you know me, I’m happy to oblige! By the way, you have not seen all the dies revealed yet, did you know that? There are more to be shown at CHA so don’t cap off that list yet. Of course as they are made available I’ll be showing my first stab at creating with them too!! The die set I’m showing today is Spellbinders S5-073 Orchard Harvest Tags & Accents.

I’m using a new sentiment from Quietfire Design called The Origin of Love – it just felt to me like muted tones were again the order of the day.  No problem with me complying there!!  I’ve taken two of the die templates and layered them here and I must say they look beautiful together and thankfully the rectangular profile makes this combination perfect for sentiments.  Since I’m all set up for digital papers now (i.e., printer hooked up, loaded with paper and full of ink :-) in the studio, I can get those papers on a whim.  These are digital papers from Websters Pages – Love!!  This particular paper is originally square but with digital you get it like you want it – I made it 5″ x 7″ and mirrored the design so the bird would be on the left.  I added a piece of a square doily from my stash just to add more interest on the left side.  I finished up with a button and hand dyed cream seam binding.

Stamps: Quietfire DesignThe Origin of Love
Paper: Websters Pages (Digital), The Paper Company, Bazzill
Ink: Versafine – Vintage Sepia and clear embossing powder, Victorian Velvet Distress Ink, Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Tattered Rose Distress Ink,
Accessories: Spellbinders S5-073 Orchard Harvest Tags & Accents, Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Doily Accents, pearls, button

Now that you’ve seen all the new Edgeabilities, Spellbinders has put out two new videos so that you can see these wonder tools in greater depth.  It’s amazing to me that something so small has so much power with the ability to mix and match – check these out!!

I hope you’re having a stellar week!!  Be good sweeties!!

    Your card is just awesome Becca. All these new dies are really to die for, and these are some of those “must haves” on my wishlist, no doubrt about that. This shape is amazing for so many things, and my head is floating over of ideas, so I hope, we can get them very fast.

    Beautiful in every way. Great design on your part in having the little blue bird ending up perched on the edge for the focal piece. You are just amazing!ReplyCancel

  • RebekkaJuly 14, 2011 - 1:43 pm

    What a gorgeous die and beautiful sentiment.ReplyCancel

  • Marcie SmithJuly 14, 2011 - 2:26 pm

    This die set is fantastic (so is your card as always). Just love all of the new dies, and was sorry that the showing ended. I will miss my daily anticipation. So glad you plan to continue showing them in your posts cause no one knows how to creatively manipulate them like you do!!!
    I don’t know whether to be happy or not hearing there are still more on the way. I just broke the bank on this last release. There were not many holiday ones, so I am guessing that that will be next ones we see. Are you going to CHA Becca? Have a great day.

    Beautiful card, Becca! Spellbinders is really blessed to have you on their team…and so are we ;-)ReplyCancel

    Becca your card is gorgeous. Just curious what digital paper pack it is from Webster’s? I wasn’t positive when I went to look. I am enjoying printing the Crafty Secrets papers on my home printer and may branch further into it. It is nice if you make an incorrect cut or other mistake to be able to just print another piece of the paper! Makes me more adventurous! Thanks for your help and your wonderful crafting blog! You make me smile every single day and that is something as my husband is so ill and things are hard right now. God is with us and your wonderful cards often give me a wonderful message for the day! God Bless you!
    Hugs – JillReplyCancel

    I just ran across your blog while ago, and I am going to be a follower. Your work is wonderful, and I am trying to learn to use my Spellbinder dies.

    I love the pink colors in the card above. Your work is lovely!

    Lovely card. I learn new ways to display things by examining your cards. Thank you!ReplyCancel

  • cynthia beynonJuly 14, 2011 - 9:08 pm

    Becca I bet you are in your glory with all the new dies. There are enough
    dies dfor you to make card after card and then change the dies and start up
    all over again. This is another beautiful card. Thank you for all the videos
    and tutorials. Sometimes it is soooooo much easier to understand how
    to make a project when you have a video to understand how you used it.
    We sure appreciate it.
