To get a layered look to your cards put your Spellbinders dies to good use...here's how!

If you enjoy die cutting then these are something well worth trying.

The only drawback is the cost as they are quite expensive.

And because of the cost involved they need to be stored and cared for carefully.

Spellbinders are a thin metal die that can cut through lots of different materials... card, paper, fabric, felt, chipboard, crafting metals and much more.

They help you to achieve a really good look to all your matting and layering and to create the all important toppers to give your cards the much needed focal point.

For an idea on which dies to buy take a look at Starting Your  Collection

That is the first in a series of videos to show you how to get the most from your purchase.

I have attached some of mine to magnetic sheets and adhered them to the wall.

They are always on hand over my work area ready to be used.

Others I store on the  sheets in their original package and keep in a file system in a plastic box.

Storing Your Dies will show you another way in which I keep mine safe

That way I can flip through them and see instantly which set it is that I want to use.

You will find lots of video tutorials for you to try if you click this link and  scroll to  Spellbinders Series 

Die Cutting Tips will help you solve any problems with intricate dies

I have added a "suggested list" of dies that you may like to consider to start you off.... and then more videos to help you make that suggested set work harder.
Faux Nesties will also show you how to get more from any of your Labels dies.

New dies are being designed and added to the Spellbinders website all the time so pop over and take a look 

There are many different dies.

"Borderabilities" "Embossabilities" "Impressablities" "Edgeabilities" and "Nestabilities" plus others and they can all create some magical effects.

 They come with smooth and scalloped edges and the "Nesties" are called so because the shapes all nest together.

By incorporating the different sizes together, frames can be made with a thick or thin rim.  

Each packet comes with laminated instructions, to tell you how to use the dies in your particular
Die cutting machine

You can also emboss with the dies, and for this you will need the "Tan Embossing Mat"

Look online for some really good deals and choose carefully.

Any dies that you buy are a considered purchase  and so make sure it is a die that you will use a lot, the last thing you want is a die that sits there doing nothing after costing you so much. 

Take a look at

Pyramage  and the   Invertage  pages to give you some ideas on how to put your Nesties to work.

And don't forget the  Clean and Simple  look too
