Spellbinders Lene Lok Destination Japan Collection

Ready to take a trip? There's a new amazing collection at Spellbinders from Lene Lok called Destination Japan! I'm linking up to the Shop Your Stash Challenge where the theme this time is Oh The Places You'll Go where they're looking for travel themed projects.
There's lots of beautiful die cuts like this Kimono and Pagoda as well as Cherry Blossoms, Paper Cranes and Waves!
This card starts with the Kyoto Emboss fan background. After I embossed I ran a distress ink pad over the raised surface to bring out the details. I love that it cuts and embosses at the same time so there are some punched holes that let even more color peek through.
Both of the dies I used today include an outline die and a detailed die that inserts into the outline so no fussy cutting!
The Pagoda is a two piece die - the top arch of the Pagoda cuts separately from the base. This is a large detailed die that takes up an entire A2 size card.
I layered the Pagoda over an ombre blue card stock panel to contrast with the red and gold pagoda. 
Again, this die set comes with a detailed die that inserts into the background die so you can cut either an outline or the detailed image. 
I love celebrating different cultures and love this sweet escape to Destination Japan! Click here to jump to the Spellbinders store to see all of the inspired images.
