Mini Spellbinder challenge......and how to win a set.....

Hi there,

A challenge was set two weeks ago for Martine and I, to create some cards using the new set of dies called.................................. A2 Fancy Weave, these are brand new from Spellbinders and are designed by Cindy Echtinaw Designs for Spellbinders.

So Martine and I decided to have a mini Blog hop between us.

Here is what I made using the A2 Fancy Weave Dies.........................................

 I have used the following products on this card.
  • Spellbinders A2 Fancy Weave 
  • Spellbinders Foliage II
  • Spellbinders Blossoms 5
  • Spellbinders Garden Lattice A4 embossing folder
  • Bundled Sage Distress Ink
  • Just Rite Botanical Medallions
  • Vintage Glass Glitter
With the exception of the Glass glitter, all products used are available from Oysterstamps



For my next creation I made a box, but you know me not just an ordinary box! It is a nice size to add a lipstick or a tube of sweets and give as a token present

 You could attach a hanging loop to the back and hang on the Christmas tree hhhmmmmm I may just have to give that one a go!

  • Promarkers
  • Organza Ribbon

With the exception of the Promarkers everything else is available from Oysterstamps


Now here is what you need to do; if you would like to win a set of these dies. You will need to make a comment and follow me, then hop over to Martine tomorrow  and make a comment and follow her.

  4. Hi Barbera, you creations are fab, and i have one of the whimsy stamps of Fluffy but have been having a bit of bother colouring him. I always go to colour him as a red squirrel didn't think to do him grey. Thanks for the idea. Kath x
