INTRODUCING VINTAGE TREASURES BLOG HOP


We are so tickled today to be introducing  Vintage Treasures .  You'll find a collection chalked full of classics!!  As always, there is a rectangle, oval, square and circle that will work well with everything in your stash and are perfect for layering.  Next are several embellishment sets.  As you hop through all the links in the blog hop, you'll see all the new dies and how we used them.

Inspiration for Vintage Treasures  
There is a special place in our hearts for those things kept in a hope chest.  Other than a promise of the future, they symbolize things of value and keepsakes that bring back treasured memories.  I delved there to find memories, filigree jewelry and keepsakes of old.  From long-forgotten turn of the century jewelry to the edgings on an old tattered handkerchief, I love bringing the past into the present in a style that is ....well, timeless.  These things -- bejeweled lockets, a sweet tiara and vintage adornments from long ago -- provided the sweet inspiration and restoration of some lovely, lovely Vintage Treasures.  

The physical dies in this collection have an extra measure of flexibility and function.  Most templates have an outer rim, and inlay and an inner rim that you can use for your sentiment.


My First Project For Today:

I'm tickled to introduce S4-991 Brillante Rondelle Etched Dies



Isn't this Die Set gorgeous?!! Love circle dies to begin with but then when you take Becca's timeless and beautiful flourishes and motifs and add them they just become magical. Love the different patterns in this set. SO beautiful!



  My Second Project for Today:

I'm thrilled to introduce S4-989 Cannetille Rectangle Etched Dies 



Another gorgeous Die Set! Love how the corners of the rectangle are mitered and also the beautiful scrolls throughout. As you can see, this Die Set (as most of Becca's Dies) can be used as a stand alone set or paired with many others. (I used the larger Die as the base on the first card above.)

 
Love the look of using this as the card front and having those see through panels. I just simply glued the card front to the back by adding some glue just along the top portion of the die cut. Super easy. (Just make sure you are using strong glue but one that dries clear.


Availability:

These Dies are available right now on the Spellbinders website —–>
