Spellbinders Thank You Blog Hop

The Gina K Designs team would like to welcome you to this special Spellbinders Thank You Blog Hop.  Recently Spellbinders generously gifted each member of our Design Team with the amazing new Grand Calibur. What an exciting gift for sure and we are enjoying this fabulous machine! We have made some special cards and projects to showcase the new Grand Calibur.   Thank you so very much Spellbinders!!!    
 
 If you came from Janice's blog you are in just the right spot and if not...be sure to start at the very beginning HERE.  For my card I used the floral image from the STV Kit: Springtime Silhouettes.  I used Gelatos on the image and sponged the die-cut oval with Memento Cantaloupe ink.  I used both the Classic Ovals Large and Classic Ovals Scalloped Large for my design.  They were some of the first dies I bought and must say still my favorite.

The Grand Calibur makes die-cutting and embossing a breeze and LOVE that you can die-cut nearly an entire 8 1/2 x 11-inch sheet of cardstock at one time!  Completely changes the die-cutting experience and makes it oh so much better :o)
 
Spellbinders is an amazing company that has changed the way I paper craft and so much for the better.  It is a rare thing when I create a card without a Spellbinders die of some sort and I can't thank them enough for this amazing machine!!  THANK YOU!

Next stop on the hop...the uber talented LEE...
Blessings,

Thank You Jennie for sharing this beautiful card with us. I like the flowers you used in the center of your oval center. I liked that you used the Grand Caliber to cut the oval and the oval scallop to make your card. Mahalo for sharing.
