Die Cutting Spellbinders Stencils/Masks Techniques

Spellbinders Vintage Treasures Blog Hop with Giveaway

Welcome to the Spellbinders Vintage Treasures Blog hop! The Vintage Treasures release contains 14 different die sets that are amazing! I’m working with 2 of them today.  The Tiffany Lavaliere Etched dies and Adorned Notepad Etched dies.   First up, Stained Glass! The photo above shows it under a bright light so you can see all the details of this piece… I filled the opening of the dies with Jewel Drops to create the look.

The next two photos show it up in the window and I am absolutely in love. I used a few dies from the set to create this “butterfly” – it wasn’t intended to be used in that way but I saw the shape and couldn’t shake it! LOVE LOVE!


Next up, a fun memo pad Adorned Notepad Etched dies set. I added some details to the exterior and interior with the Starburst Lines Stencil and then used the remaining dies to add details and embellishments.

Here is what the inside looks like:

And complete with some memo paper!
