From One End Of The Spectrum To The Other...

















How's this for changing gears?  I have just been finishing up my samples for my show on Tuesday at 9am with the Santa and elves (all cutesy and fun !) and then had to get into my serious arty mode.  Whew! What a change all in one day!  A whole lot of fun but completely different and it definitely took some focus on my part.  The sample with the crowns is part of the new offering from Spellbinders.  There are three new dies used on that card, can you spot them?  The new line is very innovative and fresh while still keeping with the nestibility look that we all love.  The new dies work wonderfully with the existing ones too, so don't worry that you may not use your older dies once you lay your hands on these.  Quite the opposite in fact.  I'm working with the new dies for several shows I'm doing in the middle of September. The two hour show that I was supposed to be doing, however, has been changed (surprised, huh?) to three one hour shows.  I will give you the details when they have been officially confirmed, soon, I hope. 
   As for the blog candy contest, we are getting close again.  Leaving comments will get you extra entries so let me know what you think of these new Spellbinder dies if you like.

Sue, both cards are awesome. I agree both ends of the spectrum and you do it so well. Will try to catch the show if Hurricane Earl holds off or blows back out to the ocean.

I love both, but my favorite is the first one with the crowns.

Loving the totally different cards and looking forward to the show. What a treat 3 hour shows for the spellbinders - will keep an eye out for the date and times of these

Jayscrafts said...

Love the 2 different styles. Think I have spotted all the nesties - will have to watch the shows to see. Love, Julia xx

Papercraft By Carole said...

The crown card is absolutely gorgeous!! Can't wait to see how you did that one. What a shame that your two hour show has been changed. You can do so much more in two hours. Still, the one hour shows will still be a must to watch!! Cxx

Ann-Sofie said...

The crown is just sooo fab and the window is just so fun... Talk about different! Love it!

Yvonne said...

Love the crown die. The Christmas card is super with all that detail and the windows.

Heather x said...

Took me a while babe but I think I found the 3 dies...crown, label and border?
Beautiful cards, love the arty one the best :)

Hi Sue

lovely cards. The elves card is fun and do I recognise the acetate windows from last year?

Really like the crown die and how you have used it. Looking forward to the shows

mae said...

I love the second card!!!!!!!

Sue - said...

two gorgeous and very different cards. The window one reminded me I bought those last year and still haven't used them. Must look for them!

Lesley Ratcliff said...

I now Love the spellbinder new dies on the card, wasn't sure when I saw them on a web shop but seeing them used on your card really works beautifully. I am totally under the spell of spellbinders and that started with Sheena so now looking forward to what you are going to do with them.

The elves are not my thing but are cute!

MissD said...

Sue, love the new nesties. Wow, you are right what a huge difference going from one to the other. Love the chains though really nice. The label adds a pretty touch too. As always awesome job!!! Mimi

I love the new nesties - wish I could keep up with 'em all. Can't wait for the shows - just updated sky box so lots of space left for once lol x

susy said...

wonderful

Lynne said...

Your right, so different but both fabulous cards. The swirl die is brilliant as are the crowns, brilliant for a man card. The elves are so cute (and I don't normally do 'cute'. Best wishes for the show, looking forward to them. I do wish C&C would wake up to the fact that it's the demos that sell the products and let you get on with it.

Von said...

Oh wow so glad I haven't missed the shows (been on my holls)The crowns fab and hope the twiddle bits are new dies :)

Vee said...

Oh, my!! Nine away from a big giveaway!!! Good luck everyone.

Aurora said...

Great designs as usual and they are definitely on completely different ends of the spectrum. Love them both but the crowns card is especially versatile and could be converted to an Xmas card.
