  11. What a gorgeous card. It reminds me a bit of a tuxedo shirt with the embossing for ruffles, the ribbon and pearls for buttons. My all time favorite Nestabilities are the circles. I love them for how perfect they are...I could never cut them like that, even if I traced.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I already follow your blog. You have such beautiful card designs. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Just found and subscribed to your blog after it was recommended by feedly Gorgeous card. I think I like my regular and scalloped heart spellbinder dies the most at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Melanie, this card is totally stunning!

    My absolute favorite Nestabilities set is from the Decorative Elements range and is "Floral Ovals".

    I adore that set and use it constantly. In fact, I've used it today for a very decorative card I was making. It adds an extra level of elegance to every card.



    ReplyDelete
  15. Beautiful card! My favorite Nestabilities are the classic ovals paired with the scalloped ovals.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow! That's a hard one because I use Spellbinders dies all the time. If I had to choose one, I would say that I probably use the Classic Ovals the most. They are all great, and I'm always on the lookout for a new one.

    ReplyDelete
  17. What a beautiful card! Love the background! I love Spellbinders and use many different ones, but I probably use my classic circles the most of any, so I suppose they are my favorites.

    I already follow your blog!

  18. My all time favorite Spellbinders is the Nestabilities Butterfly Circles. I'm a butterfly collector and use a lot of them on my cards.

  20. Hi
    Your card is especially gorgeous with the Texas bluebonnet on it.
    I have none of their dies and I would love to win an oval type one. I would have a whole ton of their dies if I could.

  21. I seem to use # 4 and # 14 the most! But I own so many more.....

    ReplyDelete
  22. My favorite Nesties are the Floral Ovals, and the Classic Ovals and Circles.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Been scallop edge die cutting for a while, any shape with a scalloped edge dresses a certificaate or a greeting card with a wee more sharp presentation. Melmel, you continue to make papercrafting a work of art! Thank you, bluebonnet blue always charms the eyetrack of any receiver. That's the graduation color of two schools around here! God Bless! Keep Looking UP!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love just about every product that Spellbinders has come up with, but I have to say my favorites are the nested circles and scalloped circles - I used them just about every day! Your card is so pretty! I used to live in Texas and bluebonnets remind me of home.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would say the ones I use most are the ovals, both classic and scalloped. I guess I only have one shot at winning though as I don't have a Pinterest board and I am already following you, so can't sign up again. By the way, I love your card and if I don't happen to win, I feel I may have to check out the Spellbinders a little more closely and see what else I MUST have. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  26. Classic ovals has always been my favorite nestabilitie! Your card is Gorgeous! Love the deep embossing & of course your lovely bluebonnet stamp, gorgeous coloring!

    ReplyDelete
  27. My favourite Nestabilities of all times is Fleur De Lis Squares. Did the pinning and already following your blog! This is goreous Melanie! Love the two identical shapes but that one is embossed and the other flat!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Gorgeous card! Love that Labels Twenty Nine you used... hadn't seen that one before!

  47. I don't have very many Spellbinders dies - but I wish I had them ALL! My favorites of the ones I do have are the fancy tags. I use them a lot for an added touch of elegance on my cards. Thanks for the chance to win. Spellbinders makes such high quality and innovative products.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh my what a beautiful card! I love Spellbinders dies! I am always inspired by the way others use them in ways I had not thought of. My favorites would have to be the classic ovals, Lacey ovals and Fleur de Lis Squares! Thanks so much for sharing your talents! :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love how the blue pops on your card! May favorite Nestabilities, although it's hard to choose just one, would have to be the Lacey Ovals.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I always like different kinds of Squares by Spellbinder. Love their products, don't have many though. Thank you for the chance to win it. Your card is gorgeous. I pinned it and I'm your follower.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I am just getting started buying products for my new BigShot. Have not got any Spellbinders dies yet, but have been trying to decide which one to get first. Love your cards and look forward to seeing more.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I like to put a bit more focus on my smaller greetings using the following at different times: Labels 21, 25, and 28. What appeals to me with the set you are displaying is that not only is it very attractive and elegant, but it places focus elsewhere than what I am used to. I wish I could just wiggle my nose for all the Spellbinders items I long for.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Your card is absolutely stunning Melanie! I just purchased the romantic rectangles and its my all time favorite! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete

  83. I am new to embossing and die-cutting (just got my first machine for Christmas), so my selection is limited, but I just love my Classic Ovals because they just finish off my focals. I have a set of dies from another maker that don't work as well, so I'm a Spellbinders faithful. Any dies I've bought (3) myself have been Spellbinders and I'm looking forward to expanding my collection. Thanks for the chance to win some! Absolutely love your elegant card and all your stamp sets which I got from Gina K. Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  114. What a lovely card!

    It's hard to pick a favorite Spellbinder's die as I love so many of them. The workhorse dies are the ovals. My favorite die is probably the old Labels 1.

    ReplyDelete
  115. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, my Spellbinder's, my fave all-time one has to be the Scalloped Circle. All the size ranges, and it embosses the edge. So many uses, up front, behind (like a window), inside, outside....how can you lose? The embossing gives it so much dimension, quickly. Plus: Folders are so handy, really class up a card. Dots of any size are my loves, then all the other embossed images. Hey, thanks for a chance to win, especially a product that I faithfully use any chance I get! Spellbinders Rock!!

    ReplyDelete
  116. The Circles are my favorite. I use them on everything!

    ReplyDelete
  117. Wow, this card looks beautiful, Melanie!! I just noticed your new book too - Congrats!! You know how much I LOVE your floral stamps :)

    ReplyDelete
  118. How do you pick just one nestie? I use all of mine. I guess I use the circles the most. But they all get lots of use. I love my spellbinders!

    ReplyDelete
  119. I like ALL of my Spellbinders dies, but Labels 8 is my very favorite set...have them in the Grands too! They get used more than any of my other Spellbinders dies!

    ReplyDelete
  120. oh gosh, I love this gorgeous card! I'll have to check into this stamp, as I'm a Texan currently living in Ohio. I miss the bluebonnets so much in the springtime.

    I use my Spellbinders dies on pretty much every project I make. I think I use the labels #1 more than any other though. maybe because it's the first one in the basket! tee hee!

    ReplyDelete
  121. I don't have any Nestabilities dies (I just recently bought a die-cutting machine and haven't gotten any dies for it yet), but I've had my eye on the variety of Labels dies available. I love how they range from simple to elaborate, to accommodate all sizes and styles. :)

    ReplyDelete

  127. Such a beautiful way to showcase your gorgeous flower Melanie! Such a generous gift package to have a chance of winning too, thanks you so very much. I downloaded your book A Year Of Flowers the day you announced it and have almost worn out my set - LOL! I love Spellbinders to showcase my creations too and love to 3D a lot! I have to say that my favourite Nestabilitis are Resplendent Rectangles, Lacy Ovals and Fleur De Lis Squares. Have to have one in every shape since I love my flowers so much. Can't thank you enough for sharing all your tips and tricks to help us all to try and achieve the same beautiful work you do.
