You asked and we ordered...NESTABILITIES!

The next most exciting find at CHA, coming in at #2 on our top ten list, are Nestabilities by Spellbinders. Our cardmakers have been asking for them for quite some time, so we are happy to oblige! For those who don't know about them, they look a lot like the QuicKutz dies except they are a bronze color. Each die can be used to cut AND emboss in your Revolution and/or Epic Six. Here's what Amy (who didn't know it, but I saw her drooling over the dies while taking these pictures) has to say about them...

These easy to use cutting AND embossing dies are awesome once you see them in action!

Check out some of these examples.

The make-n-take at the Spellbinders booth at CHA was a layered 3D snowflake ornament that was also embossed just like the snowflakes on this page. It doesn’t matter if it’s thin metal or paper, you’ll get a great edge on your shape! It’s difficult to show how gorgeous the embossing is, so you might have to stop by the store to check out my layered ornament in person!

This photo shows off Spellbinders’ ability to emboss a little clearer. Just run your paper through your machine and cut it out, then LEAVE your cut shape inside the die and run it through your machine again with a special rubber mat to emboss! It really is that easy!

This label was embossed and inked before use in the layout. The embossing is something simple that you can do to make your papercrafting pop! It’s easy, fast and yields fantastic results!

Keep an eye out for these new dies coming our way very soon!
