Spellbinders Pendant Contest Cards

In case you haven't noticed I am crazy about Spellbinders dies! And the new ones they have been introducing the last few weeks are just gorgeous! Well, they are holding a contest using the new pendants and/or matching borderabilities and I have decided to give it a try! I used the Grow in Grace Set from Our Daily Bread designs on all three cards. The only other stamp I used is an unmounted bird stamp I picked up at a stamp show a while back in the Stamp Camp booth. On two of the cards I used the In Spades Borderabilities set. For the other card I used the Fleur De Lis Pendant.

I did lots of sponging, distressing and masking on this first card.
I added Hero Arts pearls and flowers with a brad from SU!'s Vanilla Hodge Podge Hardware kit.

This next one was fun!
I embossed the pendant first and sponged inside the die
and outside the die while it was still in place.
Then I layered (with foam tape), a cut out pendant, Inverted Scallop Circles, more of the pendant die cuts and then a Labels Three die.
The sentiment is heat embossed. I also used an Ornare piercing template in the corners and added pretty little pearls.

I wish you could see the shimmer on this next card!
I sprayed Glimmer Mist on a piece of BasicGrey designer paper.
The In Spades border is threaded with ribbon and wrapped around.
I added SU!' die cut leaves and Hero Arts flowers and pearls.

To see all contest cards, here is a link.
Well, we'll see what happens! Wish me luck!
