Sneak Peek: Spellbinders Summer Spectacular!

Hello everyone. Welcome to the very first day of Sneak Peek: Spellbinders™ Summer Spectacular. I have two projects to share with you today using the brand new and super gorgeous Majestic Decorative Elements Circle die template set!



Spellbinders Supplies:
S4-384 Majestic Decorative Elements Circle MSRP $24.99
GC-001 Grand Calibur® Machine

Cross Promotional Partners Supplies:

{Tutorial for Majestic Decorative Elements Circle Flower}

I started off by nesting Majestic Decorative Elements Circle die templates #4 and #5 (#1 is the smallest) in one another.  After positioning the red cardstock over the die templates, I cut the shape out using the Grand Calibur Machine.  I repeated the process using orange cardstock.
Using my Scor-Pal scoring board, I carefully scored a line from each point on my star shape.  I alternated mountain and valley folds along the scored lines to create a dimensional flower.
After adhering both the orange and red flowers together I preceded to make the center petals.

After positioning white cardstock over the Majestic Decorative Elements Circle die templates #6 I cut/embossed the shape.  Using a pair of scissors I neatly trimmed along the border creating a decorative strip.  Starting from one end I neatly rolled the strip of paper to form my flower.  I secured the rolled flower to the center of my scored red and orange petals.

{Majestic Decorative Sun Catcher}

This sun catcher was fun to create using all the die templates from the Majestic Decorative Elements Circle die template set.  I layered different die templates to create each design and cut/embossed them using Spellbinders Delicate Pastels Premium Craft Foils Assortment.  After adhering the foil to the front and back of the cut cardstock dies I assembled the sun catcher with wire and jewellery embellishments.

{Tip}
Spellbinders foil can be sanded with a sanding block to create a vintage or distressed look.  Sanding the color foil reveals a tarnished silver finish.
