Hello Blogging Friends! Welcome to Day 4 of the Spellbinders Paper Arts® Springtime Shipping Frenzy. The time is here! The New Spellbinders die templates that were previewed in January are now shipping! To celebrate I've created a couple of projects to share with you and give you some ideas for the new dies. I also have a step-by-step tutorial. After my tutorial, there will be a chance for you to win these dies as well
as a grand prize sponsored by Spellbinders, so be sure to look for the highlighted contest link at the bottom of my post.
Here is my first project. The die templates I am showcasing are S5-208 Majestic Labels Eight and S2-062 Create A Daisy from the Create-A-Flower series. Please note you can click on all of the images to enlarge them and see all of the details.

To start I stamped the floral image from CR-04835 Black Eyed Susan Vintage Labels Five Clear Stamps from JustRite® Papercraft using Memento Rich Cocoa ink from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko. I colored the image using Spectrum Noir™ Markers. Then I used the Grand Calibur® Machine and S5-208 Majestic Labels Eight die template to cut/emboss the label shape.
Next I used the T-001 Tool 'n One tool to remove the die cut and all the tiny drop out pieces from the die template. The T-001 Tool 'n One is a portable tool that performs multiple craft functions, including piercing, paper removal and many more! It's so quick and easy to use.
Here is a look at the die cut once it was removed from the die template.
Next I stamped the sentiment and inked the edges of the die template with Antique Linen Distress ink.
Now it's time to create the daisy! To create the daisy run the petal die template from the S2-062 Create A Daisy set through the Grand Calibur® Machine 10 times. For the center part you will need to run that die template through 2 times. You will need to run the disc floret through 5 times (only one shown in the photo). I used a light yellow cardstock to die cut all of the pieces. For the inside part of the flower and one disc floret I used spiced marmalade and vintage photo Distress Inks. I used wild honey Distress Ink on all of the petals applying from the inside and fading out to the tip. I used the stylus to shape the center parts of the flower.
Next I shaped (curled) all of the petals using the end of a paint brush. I used the larger paint brush handle for the larger petals and the smaller one for the smaller petals. Then I glued the petals to the disc florets. On the first disc floret adhere 2 layers of the largest petals. The second layer should be offset from the first one. Then adhere the next size of the petals to the disc florets going down to the smallest. These will all have one layer of the petals. Next shape the two smallest sets of petals. Place each petal inside the round nose pliers and push the sides of the petal up.
This is what the layers of the flower should look like once all the petals are glued in place. For the center glue the pieces on to the disc floret starting from the outside and working your way to the center. Cut and emboss three of the leaves.
Stack and glue all of the layers together and this is what the finished daisy will look like.
These are a couple of close up pictures of the card front and the daisy.
Assemble the card as shown. I used 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner Permanent Strips-Refillable Dispenser 49' from Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L™ to adhere all of the pieces. Then to finish off the card I added some pearls to the corners.
For my second project I altered a small pink gift box using the same die templates.
Here is a close up of the daisy. I used the same light yellow cardstock as I did on the first project but I used different colors of ink and it totally changed the look.
