There once was a crafter who loved Spellbinder dies. She loved their beautiful designs and intricate details. She wanted to collect every set. Sadly, her limited funds kept her from completing her Spellbinders dream of beautiful cards...or did it?
Owning many die sets does make card making an easy task. But what if you only have a handful of sets...or maybe only two sets? Fear not, you can still create beautiful cards with only a few dies. I am a HUGE believer that less is more. That less pushes and enhances creativity. In this workshop we will explore what you can do with just two die sets. You will be amazed with the result.
By the end of the workshop you will:
- Learn the basics of cutting with Spellbinders dies
- Create simple, yet beautiful layered cards
- Deconstruct your die-cuts and use the pieces
- Learn now to use the dies for embossing and stenciling
- Use your dies for partial cuts and base cards
- Create 10 projects using the techniques we learn
Lesson One: In Lesson One we will learn the basics of Spellbinders cutting, storage, and care. We will then use our two die sets in the most traditional way. We will make a simple layered care. We will also explore ways to use dies that don't quite "fit".
Lesson Two: In Lesson Two we will deconstruct our die-cuts and use the pieces instead of the whole. We will also create borders and frames with the dies.
Lesson Three: In Lesson Three we will switch from die-cutting to stenciling and embossing.
Lesson Four: In Lesson Four we will explore using dies to create partial cuts. Finally, we will use our dies to create a base card that will become a beautiful foundation for our projects.
