Supply List:

Promotional Partners:

To make the card you will also need:
  • dry embossing stylus or pen barrel


I am so thrilled to be able to show you how to create your own flower using these dies in the educational video below. Now you can control the look of your flowers with the right shading, shape and form with these easy-to-use die templates!



  Here is a close-up view of the finished Gerber Daisy:

For my second project, I wanted to show you how easy it is to use felt with the Gerber Daisy die templates. I used the Artisan X-plorer™ Machine with the Metal shim, but felt cuts easily in the Grand Calibur as well. I created a pretty Eyeglass Case made from 100% wool felt.


Supplies:
Materials: 100% Wool Felt: Rose, Pink, Mauve, Dark Mauve and Green, DMC Pink Floss, Needle
Inks: Dark Green Copic Marker

  22. Good morning Darsie,
    This Spellbinders trip is not fair because you end up needing all of the new dies because of the endless amount of things that goes through your brain at the one time. I just love the new flower die and like today's embossing folder it is not a want scenario but a need as they are so beautiful. I love both your beautiful projects done with today's titbit. The card is so beautiful i know just the person that i would make that for. The glasses case comes from my other love or one of them, sewing. I like the fact that you can use the dies in material as well because you get more uses for your money.
    Thank you Darsie for sharing with us your treasures,
    Love and crafty hugs
    Norah
