Distinguishing between the Spellbinder "ABILITIES"

Spellbinders dies-  distinguishing between the –ABILITIES

If you are new to Spellbinder dies you may wonder what the difference is from one category of die to another.  I figured that if I didn’t know the difference there is a good likelihood others out there don’t know either,  I hope some find it helpful.

Nestabilities have been around since 2007.  They are various die cut shapes at 1/4th and 1/8th inch increments that create beautiful scrapbooking pages. Like many die cut templates they are metal wafer thin dies that allow you to cut, emboss, and stencil all in one. One of the major differences is that with nesting dies you have about 6 or 7 that come in a package that are great for stacking to create a 3-D nesting effect at an affordable price. They are universal and work in most die cutting machines..

Grand Nestabilities die templates are a super sized version of our flagship Spellbinders Nestabilities dies. Incrementing up from our regular sized sets, mix and match with each other or coordinate with original sized Nestabilities dies. 

Shapeabilities dies offer the most cutting and embossing detail in dies available in the market today.   They offer every look from ”sophisticated to whimsical.

Cardmakers and scrapbookers alike love Spellbinders “abilities” for the versatility (mix and match) and value or these dies.   I also like that they work on all the leading manual die cutting machines.  I use Spellbinders on my Cuttlebug.  There are a large variety available and we can’t carry them all but if there is one you know you want let us know and we will do our best to get it for you and as always we promise to offer you the lowest price.
