Spellbinders Card

Hello All,

Just wanted to post my first Spellbinders Card. I came across a website with some amazing cards on it which uses the Spellbinders Dies. So of course I went on the hunt for five days in order to purchase just the right die sets. Each day I used my 40% off coupon for some savings because these things are a little bit cha ching........ I had a little bit of a learning curve for I had never used my cuttlebug for anything other than embossing folders.  I already had some Spellbinders Shapeabilities I didn't quite know what to do with as well as some Label Nestabilities. I had to do some research in order to understand the Spellbinders sets and I still don't have everything I need to make a complete Spellbinders card. So this is my first attempt with what I had to work with for now. I think it came out pretty and definately more advanced than any other card I have ever done.... I like it and will probably invest in a couple of the grand sets.

I was able to put this card together using the following kits:

SB Nestabilities Resplendent Rectangles
SB Nestabilities Romantic Rectangles
SB Edgeabilities Classic Petal
SB Shapeabilities Moroccan Accents
SB Shapeabilities Fancy Tags Two
The Celebrate Stamp is from Stampin Ups' Outlined Occasions Set and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby

Thanks for Looking....

On the Hunt

This two page spread was created using the On the Hunt cut file from Treasure Box Designs. As always this layout can accommodate 4 full size photos. I hid a lot of extra eggs in the grass. Can you count them all (even the ones in the baskets)? I especially loved the little bunnies that are buttons on the boys overalls and the ones in the little girls hair as pony tail holders. I laid the pages as a two page spread as below but I bet it would look even better if you swapped the two pages.

Egg Coloring Kit

I had a great time completing this layout also using the Coloring Eggs cut file from Treasure Box Designs. There were so many elements to this single cut fule that I couldn't fit them all in one layout so I made two. I like to use full size photo mats on my pages for those people that don't like to cut their photos. This layout also has an extra spot for journaling. I left these eggs plain and not decorated but added flowers with brads to the bunny's ears. I think it makes them look like girl bunnys that way.....
