Flourishes Friday Focus-Romantic Spellbinder Sweetpeas

A beautiful Friday to end another beautiful week! What more could you ask for!

Well, how about another Friday Focus with the Flourishes Senior Design Team? Latisha is challenging us to show off our Spellbinders Nestabilities. So we're here to show you fun creative ways to use them!

I have to say that when I finally decided to branch out into Spellbinders Nestabilties, it brought a whole new life to my stamped creations. I really love them. They are portable, graduated in size, you never have to wonder if something will fit because you have so many options, they are light weight and fit in most any die cutting machine. They emboss, cut, provide a template for sponging ....they're fantastic. Alright enough talk...here's what I made today:
In this card I used my Small Scalloped Square and my Small Square dies to create frames for my Sweetpea image. First I cut out the square shape and popped out the middle (that I would normally use).

Then I took my scalloped square, lined it up and cut out the scalloped shape to create a frame.

I also took the cut edge of my Pierceabilities template to create a scalloped edge on the patterned papers and also as a strop on the *Sweet Peas* word section.

So many ways you can use Spellbinders...so head on over to the rest of the Design Team to see their creativity!
