New Collections Inspiration Blog Hop + Giveaway --Spellbinders

Hello Friends,


Welcome to the December 19th Spellbinders Blog Hop.

I am super excited to be a part of the NEW COLLECTIONS INSPIRATION BLOG HOP 


This blog hop brings together amazing crafters and is a wonderful way to have a panorama of projects all at a time and also gives an opportunity to enhance one's creative skills.

Spellbinders has been with me ever since I started crafting and now s an inseparable part of my craft room. Today, I am featuring the Exquisite Splendor by Marisa Job.  Marisa is a wonderful designer and more so she is a beautiful person with a warm heart and I regard her more as a friend. Having met her during CHA 2018 has been my happiest moment and I am always in awe of her.

I have three projects here that showcases the exquisite dies designed by Marisa.
If you have come from Erum Tasneem's blog, your next stop will be at Sharyn Sowell's blog. You must stop by each blog to complete the hop .The full blog hop list is given at end of my post.

I am a very addicted and passionate flower maker and flowers form an important part of my projects. I have used the Exquisite Splendor dies designed by Marisa Job -  Shapeabilities Square Medallion Tiles Etched Dies  , Shapeabilities Swirly Doily Etched Dies and the Shapeabilities Leaf Border Frame Etched .Dies . You can click on these to take you to the Spellbinders store where you can see other beautiful dies under the same category.
I have two cards and a box with tag to show the beauty of these dies. Together with these , I have used other dies designed by Marisa as they complimented well with my projects. You can find the entire range of dies designed by Marisa -Here

Here are my projects.


My first project highlights the spirit of Christmas. With the festive season just a few days away, I wanted to use the Swirly Doily die along with some white flowers made from the Textured Flowers die. To give a dimensional look to my die, I cut four of them in white card stock and adhered them together. Then I embossed the die cut using Gold embossing powder and heat setting it. The gold is little dull that really brightens the flowers with golden fillers.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


  My second card is a favourite of mine. I have used the Square Medallion Tiles die along with the Leaf Border Frame die to create a lacy background. Just the addition of these die cuts make it so easy to create beautiful background. On this, I made flowers using the Textured Flowers die and arranged them on the card. The base of the card is subtle shabby pattern paper.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So beautiful are the dies designed by Marisa, I could not stop myself from creating this tiny gift box and a matching tag. I used the More than Milk carton die also designed by Marisa and decorated it using tiles from the Leaf Border Frame die set.  Since this frame has rectangle design tiles , it was fairly easy to cut them and use as panels for decoration. See the matching die that looks so pretty with this. I kept the colours soft pastel to highlight the beautiful design.









So these are my three projects. I hope you will like these and also use the dies from Marisa to create exquisite projects. Also tell me which one is your favourite. I would love to hear from you. Do stop by each blog in the list given below to get loads of inspiration.
