I Spy With My Little Eye... 62

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, October 28, 2010 @ 2:47 AM | ,

 Hi There! Yesterday, I made a trip to Hobby Lobby and while I was browsing around the papercrafting section, you are not going to believe what caught my eye: Yep! That is THE NEW SPELLBINDERS™ GRAND CALIBUR die cut machine already on the stores shelves!
I could not help myself - I had to take a photo! Maybe the stores will hold a hands on demonstration for customers! If so, you won't want to miss it! You are not going to believe how amazingly well the Grand Calibur cuts & embosses all the various sized Spellbinders™ die templates including the NEW - ONE of a kind - Grand Nestabilities® Have you spotted the Grand Calibur die cut machine yet in your local craft store? If so, where? please do tell :)

I have this card to share that I made for this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC90) where Guest Designer, Linda Coughlin is challenging us to Anything Goes But Buttons and Bows! YIKES! I can't remember the last time I didn't use a bow! Using a LF-161 Labels One die template to cut/emboss the card front made for an awesome sized canvas ;) I had plenty of room to stamp the lovely Friendship quote from Flourishes Gerber Daisies Stamp Set.
I created a multi-layered butterfly embellishment using a butterfly die template from S3-146 Butterflies Two which I then mounted on a paper doily made using a S4-293 Lacey Circles die template. I love the unique feature of the Spellbinders™ die templates that allows you to cut, emboss and stencil ALL in ONE!
That's all I have for today! Thanks so much for visiting - Be Sweet ;)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Flourishes Gerber Daisies Stamp Set
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Grand Nestabilities® LF-161 Labels One, S4-293 Lacey Circles, S4-116 Standard Circles Small, S3-146 Butterflies Two, GC-001 Grand Calibur

E.T said...

gorgeous card Mona! as always, your choice of color palette is phenomenal!

Heather Jensen said...

I saw that Wizard when I got my new Cuttlebug at Hobby Lobby the other day. I didn't see a price or anyone to ask. I didn't know how it worked either. So I just got my CB. :)
This is absolutely beautiful Mona! I love the butterfly paper with the sweet butterfly die. I could never stitch around a circle. I am lucky to stitch in a straight line. :)

Stella said...

Your sewing skills are excellent. I am just like Heather....I am happy when I am able to stitch a straight line :). Love all these butterflies on your card. Another beauty made by you:)
Hugs,
Stella

Gorgeously stunning, Mona, with all the great colors, sewing and those fabulous SBs dies! Doesn't even need a bow!!!
I've meant to ask you about the Grand Calibur & I am really surprised it's already at Hobby Lobby. Thinking when my old purple Wizard dies, this will be my machine of choice!

Davi said...

Very cool card Mona :) I am lovein the next generation of the grand dies. They are a lot of fun:) The new machine in my opinion is going to redefine any cutting size and the ability to cut more then one at a time :) Your blog is one of my favs. Thank you for being so informative.
