CHA Summer 2013 | Nestabilities Enhancing Elements by Spellbinders

The following two tabs change content below.
Yana Smakula is a newlywed from Ukraine (which is in southeastern Europe) with no kids but two black cats. She loves to travel across the world and meet new people, discover new cultures and just explore. So far together with her new husband she’s been to a few places in Europe (Poland, Check Republic and UK), Africa (Egypt, Tunisia and Israel), Asia (China and Sri Lanka) and USA. Their next dream destination is Madagascar, because they hear the nature there is simply breathtaking! Yana fell in love with the U.S. while living here (in Las Vegas, NV) as a high school foreign exchange student when she was a teen. She enjoys scrapbooking, mostly about her travels. Her other passion is cardmaking – she enjoys trying new products and techniques, experimenting and creating in different styles. She’s also very much into stamping (although she didn’t realize it until she took a close look at her cards and noticed almost all of them use stamps!). To learn more about Yana, visit her website.

At the all new CHA Summer 2013 show (now actually called Create and Connect) Spellbinders Paper Arts introduced 13 new mixed media items and 48 new exciting dies and folders among which is their latest innovation called “Nestabilities Enhancing Elements”.

At the moment the new line has only 4 die templates – circles, ovals, squares and rectangles – the names of which provide a suggestion the line is possibly to be expanded in the future.

The new Enhancing Elements are designed to work on top of the existing Nestabilities collection and is bound to introduce even greater possibilities for cardmakers and other paper crafters.

Dies from this line do not actually cut the shape. What they do is provide fantastic embossed, debossed and cut designs inside a shape that is cut out by the Nestability dies. The new dies are gold-colored, and like the Imperial Gold dies, take your die cuts to the 4th dimension providing you with embossed, debossed and (after adding some ink) a letterpressed look.

You can combine the new Enhancing Elements dies not only with the similar shapes, but with different ones as you can see in the photo below:

To give you the idea of the opportunities these dies present, take a look at the photos below to see all the different die combinations we came up in the class. We made more than 220 different die cuts in just 15 minutes!

After having the chance to play with these, I can definitely say – these dies are a must-have for any die-cutter
