See how to use the new Spellbinders M-Bossabilities in this video!




I am honored to be introducing the new Cut Fold Tuck dies from Spellbinders! These European inspired designs create beautifully layered geometric designs in one pass through your die cutting machine! Simply fold the pieces, tuck them under and watch as the amazing designs develop! With multiple dies in each set, you can easily and quickly create different sized Cut Fold Tuck die cuts, or layer them for wonderful dimensional effects!

Watch this introductory video!




See this how-to video on the new Cut Fold Tuck dies:







To start I used the two larger die templates in the S5-113 Floral Burst set and Racy Raspberry DoubleMates cardstock. The paper is double sided with a light color on one side and a darker color on the other side which is perfect for creating die cuts with the Cut, Fold and Tuck die templates. I used the Grand Calibur® machine to cut/emboss the die cut shapes.


The next step is to lift up and fold the paper on all of the cut lines.


Once all the pieces are folded over then tuck the cut lines behind the previous fold, it's super easy! This is what the die cut will look like once all of the cut lines are folded and tucked in.


Then cut/emboss the largest shape using S5-113 Floral Burst die template and the Grand Calibur with Simply Smooth Ivory cardstock from Discount Cardstock. I inked the entire die cut with Antique Linen Distress Ink before folding and tucking.


Next fold and tuck the die cut. Inking the die cut before folding it will give you a two tone look.


I used EL-007 Elegance M-Bossabilities folder to emboss a piece of Bronze Metallic cardstock from Discount Cardstock. I love the crisp and deep embossing you can achieve using the M-Bossabilities folders!


I lightly sanded the cardstock to reveal the black core.


I used 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L on all of the die cuts and then layered them on the card front.


Before adding the die cuts I adhered a piece of Antique Gold Satin Wrinkle Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.


Here you can see the dimension from layering the die cuts. I added LeCreme pearls from Want2Scrap to the die cuts and some hand made trinket pins for embellishments.



Supplies
Spellbinders: Grand Calibur, EL-007 Elegance M-Bossabilities folder, S5-113 Floral Burst
Paper: Discount Cardstock Simply Smooth Ivory, Racy Raspberry DoubleMates, Bronze Metallic, Soot
Ink: Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink
Accessories: Really Reasonable Ribbon Antique Gold Satin Wrinkle Ribbon; Want2Scrap LeCreme Pearls; Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares; Trinket Pins, Sanding Block



For my second project I altered a wooden plate and candles to create a beautiful home decor centerpiece.


I used S5-113 Floral Burst die templates and Precious Metals Premium Craft Foil (copper) with the Grand Calibur machine to cut/emboss the foil.


The back side of the foil is silver so the foil also works great to achieve the two tone look. I used Scrap Happy Sheer Glue from The Rubber Cafe to adhere all of the foil pieces. There is a fine tip on the applicator on the glue bottle which makes it really easy to apply the glue in all of the small areas. I added black rhinestones from Want2Scrap in the center of the die cuts and along the edge of the plate.


Here is a close up of one of the candles. I used Simply Smooth Ivory cardstock and embossed it with EL-007 Elegance M-Bossablitities folder. Then to add the color I used Distress Inks. I added one of the small foil die cuts to the center of each candle and then added black rhinestones.



Supplies
Spellbinders: Grand Calibur, EL-007 Elegance, S5-113 Floral Burst, Precious Metals Premium Craft Foil (copper)
Paper: Discount Cardstock Simply Smooth Ivory
Ink: Ranger Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Victorian Velvet Distress Inks
Accessories: The Rubber Cafe Scrap Happy Sheer Glue; Want2Scrap Black Rhinestones; Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares; Candles & Wood Plate

Luv 2 Create said...

Wow Heidi, these are fantastic. Love your home decor project. These new fold and tuck dies are fabulous. I remember the cut and fold brass border dies that were along the same line many years ago that the cuts had to be made using a craft knife. These are so neat cause the intricute cuts are done just with a pass thru the machine. Love these.
