Spellbinders has a large assortment of dies, as you probably already know and their label collection is one of my favorite and I feel the most versatile especially for the Cardmaker. The dies are always sorted per category and these new Labels Dies are part of the Nestabilities collection. This means they will nest well within one another to add dimension and pop to your card fronts, layouts, mini albums or whatever you decide to use them for. I’m going to share three cards and three ideas to get your creative juices flowing. At the bottom of this post will be the complete list of all the dies and supplies I’ve used from the store.
I’ve used the Spellbinders Decorative Accents Labels Forty-Two, Decorative Accents Labels Forty-One and Decorative Elements Labels Forty-One. At the time of this post these dies are pre-order only, so you’ll want to get your orders in now so that once they hit the store shelves they’ll be shipped out right away to you.
This first card measures 5″ square. I’ve used a combination of pink and white cardstock along with Spellbinders Labels Forty-Two, Decorative Accents dies. This cuts the large white base and the pink solid in the forefront. Along with my Sizzix Big Shot I also used the Sizzix Magnetic Plate for Wafer Thin Dies and the Spellbinders Tool ‘n One. These two items just make your die cutting so much easier. Oh yes I used Scor-Pal’s No More Shims rubber mat to help even the pressure as I emboss the cut outs.
This beautifully intricate accent is cut from the Spellbinders Decorative Accents Labels Forty-One. You may have to use paper shims as you cut and rotate your plate after each pass until you get all the details cut completely. But oh my isn’t it worth it?

This card base was cut with Spellbinders Labels Forty-Two, as you watch the video I’ll show you exactly how to create this fantastic card base from your die. The beautiful center is cut using Spellbinders Decorative Elements Labels Forty-One. See how all these dies compliment one another adding another layer to your card. This card starts with the standard A2 size card base, 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ but once you cut the decorative shape to the edges your card goes down to about 4 1/4″ square.
The last card uses all the dies in the Spellbinders Decorative Accents Labels Forty-One. I’ll show you how to cut them all at the same time on the video. You also can see the difference of using one color, like this card, as opposed to the pink and white combination in the first card. It just depends on the look you want to achieve. This is the largest card and measures 6″ square. Any decorative paper on the cards was cut from Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms 12×12 paper collection. I hope you’ll come follow along on the video, I’ll share lots of ideas and more photos.
Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
