Introducing the Chantilly Paper Lace Collection Blog Hop

Welcome sweet friends, today we are introducing a new die collection by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders called Chantilly Paper Lace - you can take a quick peek of the entire collection -------> HERE.

Have you ever rummaged around in your grandmothers attic, through memories of the past to find sweet letters and cards romantically tucked away for safe keeping while preserving sweet acquaintances and conversations of the past?  Letters adorned with the finest decorations, now tattered and ripened with age, impress what an honor it was to receive these treasures.  Becca reached into the past to restore some of these treasures, preserving the fine detail, the elegance and the pure femininity into modern day romantic die cuts that are at home on any card.  The collection is reminiscent of petticoats, fine lace and adornments and are designed so that each die works with the other.  In fact, the card front dies are designed so that they can be used alone or two can be layered over each other.  Join us as each Creative Team member shares their creations with two dies from the collection.

We are listing all of the creative team so that you don't miss a beat but don't forget, each of us will be giving away an Amazing Paper Grace die pulled from the comments - one from each blog and hint-hint you'll want to make sure you leave a comment on the Spellbinders Blog too.  The prize details are at the bottom of my post.  So, without further ado let me talk about the dies I get to introduce:

First up is  S5-327 Annabelle's Trosseau

Annabelle's Trousseau is a beautiful rectangle die with inner pieces as well as a  matching corner piece. It fits perfectly on a 5x7 card with room for a base layer. Of course it could also be used as a card by itself, just joining two die cuts together for the front and back. I made my signature style shabby chic card, it just fits so easily being based on antique laces. There is a slot on the frame on each side to wrap ribbon around the front as I did here. I cut out one of the inner frames in white, it reminds me of lattice. I also cut four corner pieces and added them on top of the frame corners for a two toned look. Here is a peek at the dies:
 The second die set I'm introducing today is S4-820 Vintage Pierced Banners 

 Now, I love a good banner and these are awesome! They are great for adding a sentiment  and this particular set of banners has the tails as a separate piece, so you can bump up the middle with foam tape and leave the tails flat for a cool effect. You could also just use the middle piece and not the tails. I like flexibility in products so you can be as creative as you'd like. This banner sets includes an oval, rectangle and curved banner shape.
Here is a bonus card I made pairing the banners with the Hemstitch Rectangles from the Venise Lace Collection, one my favorite sets of rectangles ever!

I think they pair nicely, no? There is also an oval version of these dies being released as part of the Chantilly Lace Collection.

Availability:
These dies have just arrived and are indeed available on the Spellbinders Website -------> HERE
