Exciting Spellbinders News!!

I am so excited and happy to announce that I made the Spellbinders 2009-2010 Design Team!! I am looking forward to another wonderful year of working with Spellbinders, they truly are an Amazing company!! Have you seen the list of all the wonderful and extremely talented ladies who are going to be on the 2009-2010 Spellbinders Design Team? If not you can check it out HERE. I can't wait for our retreat in April and to be able to meet all of the ladies in person!

I would love to share with you the card that I made for my final project in trying out for the Spellbinders DT. All of us in the top 24 were sent two sets of die templates Classic Scalloped Heart Nestabilities S4-137 and the Reflections Butterflies S3-038 . We were asked to use these dies on our final project and we could make a card or a LO.

Here is the card that I made.How do you like the pretty little flower? I used the Scalloped Heart diecuts as petals and made a flower with a couple of leaves. I used several different colors of ink for the flower and leaves (listed below) and used a skewer to curl the petals. Then once the flower was assembled I lightly misted it with Glimmer Mist. I also used both of the diecuts for the butterfly. On the bottom one I did the reverse stencil technique using cardstock and the top butterfly is vellum. I also added a little diamond stickles for some sparkle. The designer paper is from Chatter Box and I love it! The paper is flocked and I think it looks so pretty. I inked the edges just to make the flocked part pop even a little more.I made the banner at the bottom and for the sentiment I used the Special Occasion Font set and the NEW Times New Roman Lowercase font set along with my Harmony Rectangular Wood Stamper from JustRite Stampers. I just love using the new lowercase font set, it opens up so many more possibilities! I also added some ribbon with a little bow and a few tiny pearls in the corners.

    Where do I find the additional stamps for the Justrite STamper? I have the basic one and want to buy others but I can never find any who sell them in my area? Is there a website that has all of them?

    Thanks for your help!
