Spellbinders Birthday Final Sneak Peek!

Published by at 2:50 am under Card Designs,Copic,Lockhart Stamp Co,Spellbinders

Can you believe it? Today is the last Spellbinders Birthday Celebration sneak peek! At the end of this post you will find a copy of the official rules for the Spellbinders Birthday Celebration Sneak Peek Party Drawing for the dies I’m sharing with you today, and for a chance at the grand prize of a new raspberry Wizard and $500 worth of Spellbinders dies.

I personally think they saved the best for last, but I am a wee bit biased of these AWESOME dies! Allow me to introduce Spellbinders Pierceabilities!love

These cards use the RicRac Scalloped Pierceability die set (S4-166 with an MSRP of $19.99).


As with all of the Spellbinder’s dies, you can cut, emboss, and stencil with these. In addition to that, they are piercing templates! Genius I tell ya! PURE GENIUS! They are also perfect for using with the Copic Airbrush system as seen here:


Are these dies not the most gorgeous things you have ever seen? Take a peek at these pocket cards I have created with these beauties:cha-s-greenredpocketclosed.jpgcha-s-greenredpocket.jpgcha-s-honeypiepocketclosed.jpg

As you can see, your possibilities are endless with these amazing Spellbinders Pierceability dies. How about making some gorgeous belly bands to wrap around a set of cards? Create a band to wrap around a candle for the perfect gift! The results are so professional, no one would believe you when you said that you handmade it!

If you already have another die-cutting machine and need to know how to use Spellbinders dies with it, check out these YouTube videos.










The deadline for this last drawing is 12:00 midnight Central Standard Time on July 14th.

Be sure to follow these instructions!

Quick question if you have a minute – on the pull for the tag on the wedding card (darling idea) how did you attach the ribbon & button to the card?

  45. Hi Trudee, you made some wonderful cards with your dies.

  52. Val S says:


  53. Lynne P.-D. says:

    I’ve always wanted to add borders and fancy edges to my cards but wans’t able to invest in expensive punches. These new dies are goingto do it for me. I just hope they come to Canada real soon.

  54. Bree says:

    WOW! What wonderful inspiration for using these amazing new pierceabilities, Trudee!
    I just love these pocket cards, and the versatility, once again, of this Spelllbinder set.

  56. Pegg says:

    These are gorgeous samples — I love how much they add to the pieces!!

    Well worth the wait, Trudee. Awesome job of your dies! I love the papers you chose too.

  63. Dale B. says:

    These are AWSOME…..you are so right, the best for the last, although they are all fantastic. I purchased my wizard the year they first came out, it sat and sat until all the nestabilities came out, and now I use it with almost everycard; I am impatiently waiting for the release in August…your projects are just beautiful. Paper Piercing is one of my favorites, but its so hard on the hands and wrist, these dies will make it a snap.

  64. Michelle Hoger/mitch47 says:

    Oh perfect! More Spellbinders on my “Gotta get” list! You did an amazing job, as always with the samples, and they gave you the best ones, in my opinion. Love the piercing work, and Spellbinders makes it so professional looking.

  65. Omg, I must have these, they are gorgeous.
    Your cards are beautiful.
    Please pick me to win.

  66. jami says:

  78. Kacey says:

    These are gorgeous Trudee! You would have to give me a tutorial on how you did all these! Beautiful!

  79. Sheryl Henge says:

    Beautiful — these dies add just the right touch to make a simple, elegant card. I think the pierceablity dies have to be my favorite of all the new dies introduced. All members of the Spellbinders design team have done a wonderful job of highlighting the new dies and I am going to miss the daily surprise of “what’s new”.

  80. Tracie says:

    These are great. Thank you for doing examples with colored cardstock. I was not getting the warm fuzzies with the pierceabilities on the white cardstock. But you successfully resolved that issue. You do stunning work.

  81. Juanita says:

    Whichever Spellbinders designer created these gems should run for President of the U.S.!! That kind of creative thinking is very impressing.

    Your cards are sooooooo FABULOUS. You could run for Office also. TFS.

  82. Trudi says:

    Beautiful designs and these ric rac scallop dies are fabulous!

  92. diane mcvey says:

    This is the cat’s meow!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE these! Wow, love your projects, too! This is SO exciting!!! Can’t wait to get them! :D

  93. sandyh says:

    i like the looks of these new dies, but i wish you would have done a step out on how to use them. do they really pierce all the tiny holes? do you have to turn the piece to cut the other edge? it doesn’t look like both edges cut with one pass. i’d have to see this one used (kind of like the edgeabilities).

  94. Linda Marie says:

    Whoa Trudee! They did save the best for last!! Love your projects w/these beauties!

  95. elaine says:

    Trudee – you have done such beautiful cards with these templates. Can’t wait until we can get them! Love visiting your BLOG!
