Welcome to the first day of the Spellbinders Winter Sneak Peek and Giveaway! Die template sets being shown over the next few days are slated for release at the upcoming Craft and Hobby Association Paper Arts Show in Anaheim, California. I am excited to get to introduce a great new Spellbinders die template set today, the Tudor Rose Card Front (SKU S4-502). Christina Griffiths will have a second new die template set to share with you today as well.
Now here's the really exciting part! Spellbinders is giving away the die template sets that I have used here today, as well as the die template sets used on other sneak peek blogs this week and a fabulous grand prize! Be sure to look at the end of the post for more details and instructions on how to enter the giveaway.

My first project is a really simple one--seriously, three die cuts, a pair of scissors, and some glue required, and that's about it!
I started by using my Spellbinders Tudor Rose Card Front die template to cut three panels, a green one to function as my card front base layer, and pink and yellow as my accent colors. By the way, when you have a die with a LOT of little paper chads to remove after each cut, I highly recommend the Tool 'n One, which you just roll across the die template to push the bits of cardstock out. It's a time saver!
Next, using small scissors, I trimmed one type of flower from the pink cardstock and the second type of flower from the pale yellow cardstock. Where the two colors would touch, I tried to cut down the middle.
Here I used a paper trimmer to trim away the border pieces from the pink and yellow cardstock, thinking that my border would look better in one color (green) rather than being pieced from three colors.
Next I glued the pink and yellow flowers down onto the green base. If you notice the odd cuts that touch the Labels One shape, I did not trim carefully there because I knew that I would be mounting a white sentiment panel that would cover the cuts anyway.
Here I added my bits of foam tape to raise the Tudor Rose Card Front. (If you don't want to add that extra dimension, you could simply glue this layer to your card base.) If you look closely, you can see my white sentiment panel peeking out from beneath the green layer. I used a Scalloped Labels One die template to cut and emboss the sentiment panel.
Here we have it--a really simple paper-pieced card. There is also a lovely little tag die that coordinates with the front panel in the Tudor Rose Card Front die template set; I just didn't have a place to put it on my card.
Stamps: A Flower for Your Thoughts (JustRite Papercraft)
Ink: Autumn Rose (PTI)
Cardstock: Stampers Select White, Spring Moss, Lemon Tart (PTI), Pink Lemonade (MFT)
Accessories: foam tape, glue, glitter glue (for flower centers)
Here's one more card using the same Tudor Rose Card Front, paired with some Copic airbrushing. I'll share more of the process on this one later this week, but it was simple too!
Again, my featured Spellbinders die template set was the the Tudor Rose Card Front (SKU S4-502). The sets featured in this week's Spellbinders Sneak Peek are NOT available quite yet, but they will be coming in the Spring of 2015 to a store near you!
