Fabulous Finds Friday — Spellbinders

I’ve had Fabulous Finds all week as I recoup from the Craft & Hobby Association winter show! (Yikes … this never got posted on Friday…)
Today, it’s Spellbinders’ turn to shine.

If you love the embossing of Spellbinders’ double sided M-Bossabilities, you’ll be ga-ga over the deeper, more sculpted looking 3D M-Bossabilities.
Here is one example:

These folders are a tad thicker than the others, so your sandwich will use the pink embossing plate and the raspberry adapter plate, rather than the normal base plate. Also, mist your cardstock first to loosen the paper fibers for an even deeper impression. The folders snap apart, making it easy to ink the plate itself for a letterpress look. Check out this video:

Here is a finished card:

For this project, the embossing plate was inked first with gold Delicata ink from Tsukineko.

Then there’s the exciting collaboration between Spellbinders and Susan Lenart Kazmer, creator of ICE Resin, who has designed the Media MixageTM line of bezels, papers and dies to use with Spellbinders new Artisan X-plorer MachineTM. Here is a sample of a pretty bezel:

MB1-005

Besides bezels and blanks, there are matching templates, metals and more. The new Artisan X-plorer Machine, which I have not played with yet, is a multi-purpose high pressure machine that cuts, embosses and presses a variety of materials, including metal.

Stay tuned for more samples, examples and projects … including Valentines! Thanks for stopping by.
