Spellbinders. Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello dear friends!

Thank you for joining our big event!

Today we’re celebrating new awesome Spellbinders’ release! Becca Feeken and Sheryn Sowell created beautiful collections of new dies.

I was amaized by Becca’s 3D Card Etched Dies and wanted to create  several cards. But when I received the dies I decided to create something different. I’m not sure what is it exactly, but I think it can be a lantern, a cover for bouquet or just a decor element.

For this lantern I’ve used Shapeabilities Grand Cabinet 3D Card. I ‘ve die-cut and glued  4 labels together. 

To decorate the sides of this lantern I’ve used delicate elements from Shapeabilities Filigree Veil Etched Dies . I created flowers  with flower die from January Large Die Of The Month. And the leaves are from the  old good Create A Daisy Etched Dies.

The front panel of the lantern I decorated with the sentiment from Shapeabilities Thinking of You Scalloped Rectangle Etched Dies.

For my second decor element I’ve used Shapebilities Grand Dome 3D Card by Becca.

On the tops of sides you can see the decorative elements from Shapeabilities Tiara Rondelle Etched Dies.  They add so much elegance to the lantern. 

For the embelishment I’ve used flowers from Shapeabilities Create A Hydrangea Etched Dies and leaves from Plants Eteched Dies.
