Spellbinders Explore Beyond Contest

If you like using Spellbinders dies, you should enter their latest contest.  The Spellbinders Explore Beyond Challenge runs from November 26th to December 26th, 2012 at midnight Eastern Standard Time.

There is a $5,000 Grand Prize Package from Spellbinders and their cross promotional partners.  A Second Place winner will receive a $1,000 prize package and there is also a $500 Third Place prize package.

There are six categories - Card Making, Home Decor, Memory Making, Jewelry Making, Fabric Arts and Mixed Media Art.  All projects must be original and you can enter more than once in multiple categories. 

You can get all of the details and find the official rules for the contest HERE.

Over the past few years I have collected many of the Spellbinders dies and I use them a lot for cards.  It seems silly to want to have the dies when the electronic machines will cut the same shapes but the embossed edge that the Spellbinders dies produce gives such a nice finished edge.  I used several different sets of Nestabilities to create these two cards when I did a Guest Designer spot on the Peachy Keen Blog.  You can find the original post about the cards  HERE.

I hope you are having a nice weekend.  We'll be seeing some cousins for a special dinner tonight.  I'll have lots to catch up on when we get home but I am glad we could make this trip.

  1. i have a small collection of spellbinder dies and use them frequently when making cards. you're right, the embossing adds a nice touch.

  2. Thanks for the info about the Spellbinders contest. I have just recently been playing with my dies--I was about to throw out a cardboard case from some diet soda, and thought that it would be interesting to try to cut something from it. I think I will take a look at this contest. I really enjoyed playing with them!
