A Grand Thank You to Spellbinders!!



The Gina K Designs team would like to welcome to you 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 absolutely enjoying this fabulous machine!! We have made some special cards and projects to showcase the new Grand Calibur and why we are loving it so much!! Thank you so very much Spellbinders!!!  You should have come here by way of  Theresa Momber's blog.  If you stopped here first... please start at the beginning over on Stamp TV's Main Forum.  
I have had sooo much fun using this machine for not only this easel card but I've made a couple wall hangings with it as well.  Using both the Grand Nestabilities AND throwing in my Oval Nestabilities to make an opening for photos and sentiments as well.   And... you can EASILY fit a full 8 1/2 x 11 piece through the machine and cut several regular sized Nestabilities all at once!!!  
 



The project I created with the Grand Calibur was an easel card!! I really like these for sentiments I want to showcase and keep out in my studio.  I used the Grand Scalloped Squares for my base and top of my easel using Pure Luxury Wild Dandelion.  Next I layered on some Creme de' Menthe and another layer using the Grand Scalloped Square next smaller Nestie in Ocean Mist.  I added some ribbon and lace around the two layers and adhered it to my base.  I used my Grand Labels 4 to stamp my sentiment on to the top of the easel from Theresa Momber's, "Timeless Treasures" and before removing my Nestie, I sponged on some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen. 

For the bottom part I again used the Grand Labels 4 to layer up my Wild Dandelion and again the white for my sentiment.  I added some flowers around the top edge and a butterfly in the lower corner and on the bottom layer just a small blue flower to accent.  I LOVE having this displayed in my studio and it would make a great gift to give that can be enjoyed more than just the time it takes to read a card.

And here's a peak at a couple other items I'm made with my Grand Calibur that were posted previously on my blog.



Thank you again Spellbinders for giving us such an awesome machine and gift!!!  I'm sure you'll see more items from myself and the Design Team as we play and enjoy creating with this amazing machine!!

Now hop on over to Valerie Stangle's blog to see what wonderful creation she has to share!!!

Enjoy the hop and thanks for stopping by! *smile*

Tina
Your easel card was great. Loved that you used a large Grand Caliber sized item and then smaller items to go through the Grand Caliber. I also loved that you showed some other items that you had made using the Grand Caliber.
