Sneak Peek: Spellbinders™ Summer Spectacular Day 8



This contest is now closed.  Thank you for all of you wonderful comments!!

Hello blogging friends!  I am so happy to have you join me today and I am thrilled to be introducing the NEW LF-015 Grand Decorative Circles One die template set from Spellbinders™.  I know how much you all love the Nestablities® Decorative Elelments die templates with the decorative edges and now you will be able to have and create so many beautiful projects using the Grand Nestabilites® Decorative Elements die templates with the decorative edges. Think of all the fabulous projects you will be able to create!

MSRP US$49.99

Approximate Die Templates Sizes:

2: 5 ¾”

Here is my first project that I have to share with you using the LF-015 Grand Decorative Circles One die template and shrink art.  Did you ever create with Shinky Dinks when you were little or do your kids create with them now?  Who knew Shrinky Dinks could look so glamorous and beautiful LOL!  Below I have a full tutorial to share with you on how I created this sweet little Paris shrink art pin.

Supplies
Spellbinders Paper Arts:  Grand Calibur® Machine, LF-015 Grand Decorative Circles One, S5-145 French Frills Samantha Walker Designer Collection

Cross Promotional Partners:

Other products used:
K & B Innovations Inc. Shrinky Dinks Crystal Clear, White, Black
Copic:  Air Brush System, Markers - YG63, B04, R85, 100
Tsukineko StazOn Metallic Silver Ink
Ranger Glossy Accents
Oven and Pin Back





For my project I used die templates one, two and three in the LF-015 Grand Decorative Circles One die template set, with the smallest die template being number one.  I started by using the Grand Calibur® Machine to die cut the shrink plastic.


For the smallest circle in the LF-015 Grand Decorative Circles One die template set I used Tsukineko StazOn Metallic Silver Ink and CL-03790 Paris Background Stamp from JustRite Papercraft to stamp the background image on to the shrink plastic before removing the die template, using the die template as a stencil.  I set this aside to dry for a few minutes and then carefully removed the shrink plastic from the die template. 


I also die cut the Eiffel Tower from the S5-145 French Frills die template set from the Samantha Walker Designer Collection using Black Shrink Plastic. 


Once I had all of the Shrink Plastic die cut then I put it in the oven to shrink it down, following the instructions on the package.  Here is a picture of the largest die template used and the die cut once it was shrunk down.  Even once it is shrunk down it still maintains all of the detail!


Here is another picture with some of the die cuts once they were shrunk down in size.


I wanted to have the largest circle black but I didn't happen to have a large enough piece of the black shrink plastic so I used the Copic Air Brush System and Copic marker 100 Black to color the shrink plastic to match my project. 


I used Crystal Clear Shrink Plastic for the smallest circle and I wanted to add some color so I airbrushed the back side of the die cut using Copic markers YG63, B04 and R85.


Here is a picture of all the die cuts before I assembled the pin.


I used Glossy Accents to layer and adhere all of the pieces together.  Then I added Clear Rhinestones  from The Rubber Cafe' using the Stick "EM" Up Tool for perfect placement.  To finish of the pin I covered the entire piece with Glossy Accents and added a pin back. 


Check it out!  Here is a picture so you can see just how much everything shrunk down in size!  




For my second project I designed a large shape card using LF-015 Grand Decorative Circles One, S5-145 French Frills and S5-146 Botanical Swirls and Accents from the Samantha Walker Designer Collection.

  23. All of your projects are great though my favorite is the shrink plastic one. It is so wonderful to be able to use dies to cut it out. I remember years ago when it first came out we made crafts with Girl Scouts and the options of products to use to make an item were so limited. We used it to make swaps...how I would have loved the ability to use my dies, stazon, copic and all the other great products that we have now.
