Here are the die templates you can win for blog candy.S4-307 Reverse Wonky Rectangles S4-237 Easter Border Petites

**Edit** Before you continue on I have to apologize to all of you. You know when you get that feeling in the pit of your stomach, I think we've all been there at some point--LOL! Well tonight was one of those nights!! My blog post was all ready to go except for adding the links and as I was adding the links to my surprise (and horror!!) I discovered I had used one of the wrong die templates on my project!!! The Pollyanna in me has to find an upside to all of this and the upside is that now you get to see two tutorials--one with the correct die templates (S4-307 Reverse Wonky Rectangles) and one just for fun! ;-) Actually even though the S4-307 Reverse Wonky Rectangles and S4-306 Wonky Rectangles are different shapes you can do similar techniques with them. So with that being said I hope you enjoy both cards. I am sorry for any confusion and thanks for your understanding!! ~Heidi

Here is my card that I created using the S4-307 Reverse Wonky Rectangles, S4-237 Easter Border Petites. I also used S5-043 Fleur de Lis Motifs for accent pieces.To start I cut/embossed S4-237 Easter Border Petites. To make sure that I have perfect placement of the die template I tape the edges and then use the Grand Calbiur™ to cut/emboss the border.Look at this cute little border with a decorative edge! Now I know this is an Easter die template but I will show you if add a little something in front of the egg you can also use this die template to create fun borders for some pretty Springtime card. I love it when I can get double duty out of my favorite products! I lightly inked the edges and over the embossed area to really make all the small details in the embossing pop. Here is a close up of the border. By adding a bow made with hand tinted seam binding I have kind of camouflaged the little egg. So now instead of looking like an Easter only border you can use this for Springtime cards and I think it would be a really cute border for baby cards too!
Next I used a JustRite stamp from the JB-09270 Beautiful Day stamp set for my sentiment. I used Simply Smooth White cardstock and Rich Cocoa ink. Then I taped die template #3 from the S4-307 Reverse Wonky Rectangles for perfect placement and used the Grand Calibur™ to cut/emboss the die cut shape.Before removing the paper from the die template I inked the inside edges using the die template as a stencil. Doing this will give you a crisp white edge.Next I used the S4-307 Reverse Wonky Rectangles #4 and S5-043 Fleur de Lis Motifs to create a pretty framed like mat for the sentiment. Here is a close up of the sentiment.For a finishing touch I added some White Baby Pearls from Want2Scrap. Supplies

Here is the 2nd card that is now just for fun with a step-by-step tutorial to share with you. *wink* I started with the butterfly and tulip border from the S4-237 Easter Border Petites die template set. I already had my background paper picked out for the card and I wanted to do the Reverse Stencil technique with the border so I could match the color to the paper. To do the Reverse Stencil technique apply ink directly to the inside of the die template as shown in the photo. This technique works best if you use a chalk or pigment base ink, an ink that is a little thicker and doesn't have a quick drying time. I used Lime Pastel, Ocean and Dusk Blue inks. Then I used the Grand Calibur™ and place a piece of Simply Smooth White cardstock on top of the die template and cut/emboss the die cut shapes. As you can see from the photo the ink that was applied to the die template was pressed into the paper creating a reverse stencil. Also you don't have to use several colors of ink to do the Reverse Stencil technique, you can just use one color if you would like. I used three colors of ink to match the different colors in the designer paper. Before adding the border I inked the edges of the Prima paper from the Madeline Collection using Dusk Blue and Rich Cocoa. Next I used Zip Dry™ from Beacon Adhesives™ to adhere the border. I used Lime Pastel, Dusk Blue and Rich Cocoa to ink up the butterflies and then I added White Baby Pearls from Want2Scrap for the body of the butterflies.Here is a close up of the border on the card. I used 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By3L™ to add some dimension to the butterflies and tulip. Then I added Lime Green Stickles to the edges for the butterflies and tulip for a little sparkle.It is so easy to create frames with Spellbinders die templates! I used S4-306 Wonky Rectangles #4 and #5. Once I had them lined up I added a couple pieces of tape to hold the die templates in place and then used the Grand Calibur™ to cut/emboss the frame.For the sentiment I used CL-02075 You Inspire Me stamp set from JustRite Stampers. I used Rich Cocoa ink for the sentiment. For the frame I used Ocean and Dusk Blue ink. Then I used Lime Pastel ink and the Reverse Stencil Technique. I used S4-306 Wonky Rectangles #3 and the Grand Calibur™ to cut/emboss the shape.Here is a close up of the frame and sentiment. I added a bow made with hand tinted crinkle seam binding and a couple of Leaf trinket Pins from Maya Road.I used S5-051 Fanciful Flight die template set to create the butterfly die cut, added Lime Green Stickles and White Baby Pearls for the body.

  169. Beautiful projects and so nice to see how different a card can look using the same Nestabilities. Loved the tutorials and learned how to stencil with my Spellbinders.
    Thanks & Hugs!
