♥ Introducing the Chantilly Paper Lace Collection Blog Hop ♥


Welcome sweet friends, today we are introducing a new die collection by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders called Chantilly Paper Lace - you can take a quick peek of the entire collection -------> HERE.

Have you ever rummaged around in your grandmothers attic, through memories of the past to find sweet letters and cards romantically tucked away for safe keeping while preserving sweet acquaintances and conversations of the past?  Letters adorned with the finest decorations, now tattered and ripened with age, impress what an honor it was to receive these treasures.  Becca reached into the past to restore some of these treasures, preserving the fine detail, the elegance and the pure femininity into modern day romantic die cuts that are at home on any card.  The collection is reminiscent of petticoats, fine lace and adornments and are designed so that each die works with the other.  In fact, the card front dies are designed so that they can be used alone or two can be layered over each other.  Join us as each Creative Team member shares their creations with two dies from the collection.  

We are listing all of the creative team so that you don't miss a beat but don't forget, each of us will be giving away an Amazing Paper Grace die pulled from the comments - one from each blog and hint-hint you'll want to make sure you leave a comment on the Spellbinders Blog too.  The prize details are at the bottom of my post.  So, without further ado let me talk about the dies I get to introduce:

First up, I am using the Spellbinders S5-328 Tallulah Frill Layering Frame Dies.


These dies are just so beautiful! Love that large frame die! It is perfect to use as a card base or to add to one! They cut with ease and are so easy and fun to use!

As you can see, I couldn't make just 1 card with them! :) I love the sweet little flowers on the dies. They are the prefect place to place some little pearls and give it even more sweetness and dimension.


Just love the intricate details on these dies! So pretty!


Next up is Spellbinders S4-817 Breanna's Corset Label Dies 



These label dies are just gorgeous! Such a wonderful shape! I can see myself using these ones over and over again! They are perfect for any type of card!

Lastly, I made a card combining both sets of dies. :) That is one of the many great things about Becca's dies! They can all be combined so easily and work together so nicely!


Availability:
These dies have just arrived and are indeed available on the Spellbinders Website -------> HERE

These are so precious Melissa :-) I sensed a delicate, childlike quality to them, so I wasn't surprised with your creations. It must have been a similar inspiration that pointed us both in that direction. Funny, how people interpret things. Ahhhhh, thanks for sharing.

Lovely cards... Especially like the one with the little deer. Always nice to have nested, shaped dies that make it easy to create interesting layers. One can't have too many interesting shapes to work with..!
