Designers Tammy Tutterow and Seth Apter have both announced deals with Spellbinders to produce product lines with the company that will debut at the CHA Mega Show 2016.
Tutterow’s announcement had been somewhat expected by industry watchers, after she left her long time position with Ranger earlier this year for what she said was a wonderful opportunity with another company. Spellbinders and Ranger engaged in something of a game of musical chairs this summer, with near simultaneous announcements of Tutterow departing the Ranger fold for her new deal with Spellbinders, and Ice Resin (previously partnered with Spellbinders) signing a partnership with Ranger.
Tutterow’s blog sneaks her new line as including red rubber stamps, embossing folders, and dies. Here’s a peek at one of her embossing folders, used on vellum:
Apter, a well-known mixed media artist, has been growing in popularity as an instructor with the rise of mixed media in the industry. On his blog, he described his new line with Spellbinders as “a full line of mixed media products” and says the first release will feature dies, embossing folders, rubber stamps and a journal/planner/artist book set. He also has a selection of stamps debuting at CHA through Impression Obsession.
