I’m thrilled to share Elegant Posts and Labels Four SM with you...

{Embellished Glass Vase}


I love the look of metal on glass.  It is both elegant and timeless.  You can achieve this look using Spellbinders Premium Craft Foil, decorative paper and the new die templates I am revealing today.  This is certainly a fun way to decorate a vase, candle holder or any glass surface to personlise that gift and make it just that little bit more extra special.  Here is what you will need for this project:

{Supplies}

My Mind's Eye Patterned Paper
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Runner & 3D Foam Squares
Michael's Jewelry Essentials Findings
Sanding Block
Glass vase
Fresh Flowers


{How To}

In this video tutorial I demonstrate how I put my Elegant Post die template with sign together.  I also explain the  difference between Spellbinders S4-190 Labels Four and S4-309 Labels Four SM die templates, and why you will love owning both of these label sets.



{Pressed Ceiling inspired Wall Clock}


For my second project I was inspired by the beautiful lines of pressed tin ceilings.  I cut these Elegant Posts die cuts from cardstock and Spellbinders Premium Foil.  This particular Spellbinders Premium Craft Foil is an off white/ivory color on the one side and silver on the other.  Once sanded it created a beautiful petina finish to my embellishmetns.  I trimmed the posts and kept the detail pieces to complete my center design.  By nesting two of the Spellbinders S4-399 Labels Four SM die templates, one inside the other, I was able to cut a frame for my center embellishment.

{Supplies}

These are Spellbinders product I introduced.  Remember you get all five die templates in the set and each one not only cuts and embosses beautiful and intricate designs but you can also stencil too!  Gotta LOVE that about Spellbinders :)


SKU/Product Name: S5-032 Elegant Posts
MSRP:  $19.99
Dimensions: 
1: 1¼ x 2¾″
2: 1⅛ x 3″
3: 1⅞ x 3½″
4: 2¼ x 4¼″
5: 2⅛ x 4⅜″

The next set I am introducing is one of my favorite new additions to the Label family - I predict this is going be one of my most used ones too (ha!).  This set includes five die templates that cut and emboss too!  
SKU/Product Name: S4-309
MSRP:  $24.99

1: ⅝ x 1⅛″

Your projects are wonderful. But, I came back now to leave a comment because when I sent my Reveal3 e mail to you Tuesday, 1/11 @ 19:53:43 for some reason it did not get delivered. Today I got a delivery notification with nine attempts to deliver it to you. I don't know if anyone else had that mail problem, but thought I should let you know that I did. Thanks.
