New Collection Release Preview with Seth Apter

Hi everybody. I am thrilled to be on the blog today, sharing a preview of my newest collection of products with Spellbinders.  These will be available for your purchase and creative use next month, my newest dies were designed with YOU in mind. Because the designs are abstract in nature, your inner artist is in charge and you can create unique art all your own. Whether your style is grungy, vintage, shabby chic, industrial – or anything in between – these dies will fit the bill.

Today I wanted to share a few of my favorites, along with examples of how the die cuts are used in artwork and a few tips.

STARSTRUCK

Tip: Run your die through your die-cutting machine multiple times. Then layer the die cuts, slightly rotated, to create an entirely new dimensional design all your own.

Tip: Run your die through your die-cutting machine several times using different paper. Then reassemble your die cuts to create more complex and interesting elements.
