I am excited to share my Spellbinders Bunny Hop project with you today.  I created this little baby shower ensemble using the featured die templates: Spellbinders S5-045 Banner Basics Two and S4-261 Play Time. Other Spellbinders die templates on my projects include S4-324 Ribbon Banners and S4-092 Stars Five.  Of course no baby project would be complete without beautiful paper from My Mind's Eye, The Girl's Loft, Basic Grey and WorldWin Papers.  
{K-Design Tips}
Peg, a visitor to my blog, emailed me recently and expressed how much she enjoyed a design tip I had written about in a previous post.  That email prompted me to start a regular feature on this blog called: K-Design Tips where I will share methods, shortcuts and general tips that I use on my projects.  Today I will repost a tip that I shared on a previous project called Letterpress or Reverse Stenciling using Spellbinders die templates.  I used this technique on both the Ribbon Banner shape and the Banner Basics Two shape.
One of the fun techniques that can be achieved with Spellbinders die templates is called the Letterpress or Reverse Stenciling technique. Start off by appling ink directly to the die template.  Carefully flip over the die template onto your cardstock and secure with a strip of tape.  Cut/emboss the tag.  Once you remove your shape from the die template you will have a beautiful shape with perfectly inked 'letterpressed' edges.

Don't forget to leave a comment on my blog to be eligible to win the Spellbinders die templates I featured today!  Then check the Spellbinders Blog tomorrow to see if you are the winner! 
Thank you so much for spending part of your day with me today.  Good luck!  I can't wait to see who the lucky winner is
