Spellbinders September Card Kit Inspiration

Hello Crafty Friend! I’m so glad that you stopped by today! The September kit, Together is the Best, is the cutest! There’s so many fun ephemera pieces, stickers, and beautiful cardstock and printed papers! If you’ve never tried a Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month, whatchoo waiting for? Everything you need to make at least ten cards is included in this kit! This month, I made six cards that I’d like to share with you, so let’s jump right into it!

The first card is my absolute favorite! It was a little labor intensive, but I really do love the end result! So for this first card, I began by die cutting the included Hello You die cut a bunch of times from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. I think I ended up having to cut it seventeen times to fill this black panel, which is 3.75 by 5.

Once those we all cut, I began adhering them down using liquid glue until the panel was full. I began at the top of the panel gluing down the full die cut and the portions of that row. For the next row, I off-centered the full die cut to the right and filled in with the remainders. The third row was then off-centered to the left and filled in. For the fourth row, I went back to the center, and so forth and so on. Hopefully that makes more sense while looking at the picture.

I then began die cutting the telephone pieces from pink and mirror gold cardstock, which is also included in this kit. I assembled the phone using glue and placed foam tape on the back of it. That was then adhered to the Hello You panel. That panel was glued to a panel of the same pink cardstock and then to a panel of black cardstock. Everything was then adhered to a card base, which is included in the kit, as well.

All of the next cards were created using the patterned paper, stickers, chipboard stickers and ephemera pieces. All of these pieces really make for some beautiful, quick cards!

For this next card, You and Me, I did use the Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangles to trim out the piece of patterned paper and attached it to a black panel. I just love that little bit of detail and texture it gives. I adhered all of the pieces using a combination of glue and foam tape. The only additional pieces that this card uses is a gold flower that’s been hanging around on my desk, which is from the Spellbinders Mini Blooms and Sprigs set, and a Spellbinders Fashion Gold Embellishment. Everything was then attached to an included card base.

This third card, Celebrating You, once again uses ephemera pieces with the addition of the Hemstitch Rectangles again, as well as leaves from the die set in the Spellbinders July 2021 Card Kit. Once again, all of the pieces of ephemera were adhered using a combination of glue and foam tape. I loved adding the gold leaves to tie in with the other gold details on the ephemera pieces.

My fourth card, Happy Home, uses some ephemera, chipboard stickers and these gorgeous gold stickers! I did use the Hemstitch Rectangles again for that added interest. I did adhere all of the houses with foam tape for a bit of dimension.

The fifth card, Wishing You the Happiest of Days, uses those awesome Hemstitch Rectangles again, along with some leaves from the Spellbinders Mini Blooms and Sprigs die set. Such a great set for sure! I glued the gold leaves under the ephemera pieces and used glue and foam tape on everything else. I did mount my panel on some included pink cardstock for added interest.

My sixth and final card, Grateful for You, uses the rectangles again, as well as leaves from the Spellbinders Bouquet of Flowers die set. Everything was adhered using foam tape and glue. I did reinforce the chipboard banner stickers at the top with glue, just to be sure they didn’t come off. My panel was then adhered to an included card base.

That does it for this set of cards! I hope you enjoyed them and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! I made six cards, and I still have so much stuff left over to make lots more. I encourage you to check out all of the clubs that Spellbinders has to offer! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!

Spellbinders August Card Kit of the Month Inspiration

Hello Friends and welcome back! A new month brings new Club Kits from Spellbinders, and this month’s kits are amazing! I was super excited to play with the August Card Kit of the Month, Art School! This was such a fun kit to work with! If you’ve never tried a Spellbinders Card Kit, you receive everything that you need to create at least ten cards! There is cardstock, card bases, envelopes, patterned paper, a stamp set, a die set, stickers and tons of ephemera pieces to play with! So let’s jump into the details for the cards!

I created five cards using this month’s kit, and there’s so much left to create with! For my first card, Crafty Friend, I used the Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangles die to trim a piece of rainbow patterned paper and mounted that atop a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 80lb cardstock for more stability. I added some black and white twine to one of the ephemera flags, which says, “be yourself,” and adhered that to the top left corner of the panel using foam tape.

I loved the word stickers included in the kit, so I opted for “Crafty Friend” for this card. I also added some of the dimensional hearts, along with some Spellbinders Gold Mix Color Essentials Gems for added interest.

For my second card, I once again used the Hemstitch Rectangles to trim out a piece of the patterned paper. There are tons of adorable puffy stickers in this kit, and I wanted to create a card that used tons of the art related stickers. The focal point of this card ended up being a few of the ephemera pieces that I adhered using foam tape.

I positioned all of the art related stickers around the focal point, adding in some other art related ephemera that I had to adhere using glue. The panel was then adhered to the card base with foam tape.

For the third card, I opted for more ephemera pieces! I adhered these with a combination of glue and foam tape. I also die cut three flowers, using the included die cuts, with mirror gold cardstock, which is also included, and added those around the other flowers.

I felt the card needed something, so I cut a couple of strips from the mirror gold cardstock, and adhered those to two of the corners, just for some added interest, along with a few gems. The panel was then adhered to another color coordinating panel, and then to the card base.

The fourth card was made using the Hemstitch Rectangles yet again to cut a piece of the patterned paper. This was then adhered to a black cardstock panel. The bottom rainbow is a chipboard sticker that I adhered using foam tape for dimension, along with the other two ephemera rainbows.

I pulled out two of the flags and adhered those to the rainbows using some of the puffy heart stickers. Everything was then added to the card base.

For the fifth and final card, I used the included die cuts along with the included cardstock to cut the paint tubes and paint brush. I cut strips of the colored cardstock and adhered those to a black splattered panel. I assembled the paint tubes and paint brush using liquid glue and adhered them to the panel using foam tape.

I used the included stamp set to stamp the sentiment on black cardstock using VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it using SSS Detail White Embossing Powder. I trimmed that out and adhered it the panel using foam tape as well. Everything was then adhered to a black cardstock panel before adhering to the card base.

But .. I felt the card still needed something, so I pulled out some gouache from my stash and squeezed some of the paint onto the card with it’s coordinating color. Once that dried, I did add some Glossy Accents on top of the paint to give it a shiny finish.

That finishes my projects using the Spellbinders August Card Kit of the Month! I had a lot of fun making these, and as you can see, some of these cards come together so quickly because everything is already cut for you! Plus, I still have a ton of stuff left over to keep making cards using this kit! Stop by the Spellbinders website to check out all of the Club Kits!

Spellbinders July Clubs Blog Hop

Hello and welcome back to my blog! Today, the Spellbinders team is spotlighting the July Clubs with an awesome blog hop! Comment along the hop for your chance to win a $50 gift certificate to Spellbinders! Details below. I’m showcasing a card that I created using the July Card Kit of the Month, so let’s jump right in!

I began this project by trimming a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock just smaller than an A2 card. I popped the panel in the Misti and repeatedly stamped the two larger flowers from the included stamp set with VersaMark ink, and white heat embossed those using SSS Detail White Embossing Powder.

I did some light ink blending over the panel using Distress Oxide inks Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron and Broken China. Once the ink blending was complete, I adhered the panel to a card base, which is also included in the card kit.

I loved the Bonjour sentiment in the ephemera pack, so I placed foam tape on the back of that and adhered it towards the bottom of my card. I wanted a sub-sentiment, so I foiled the Hello Friend sentiment, which is from the Spellbinders Everyday Sentiments II set, using Champagne foil. I adhered that under the main sentiment using foam tape as well.

To finish up the project, I adhered two of the included dimensional butterflies for added interest. I hope you enjoyed this project, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Head over to Spellbinders to check out all of the clubs they have to offer!

Spellbinders July Card Kit of the Month Inspiration

Hello Crafty Friends! Hope your weekend is off to a great start! The Spellbinders July Clubs are now available, and today I’m featuring the July Card Kit of the Month, Damask Daydream! You can join any of the Spellbinders Clubs now through July 24th to receive the current July kits! So let’s jump right in to today’s projects!

The Card Kits are so great, because you have everything included in the kit to make at least ten cards! There’s always super cute patterned papers, stamps, ephemera, dies and even more! For this post, I created four cards using the goodies from the kit. My favorite things to work with are always the papers and the ephemera pieces, which you’ll see from the pics!

So for this first project, I trimmed a couple of the patterned papers to fit an A2 sized card. I also used the included leaf die cuts to cut some gold leaves to add to my project. I adhered the ephemera pieces using a combination of glue and foam tape and glued the gold leaves around those for that added interest and shine. I love all the shine from this gold cardstock!

For my second project, I used the Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangles to cut a piece of the patterned paper, and once again cut some leaves from gold cardstock. I positioned the pink ephemera Beautiful square in the center of my card and attached the glitter Hello along the side of it securing the overhang with foam tape. I cut two pink flowers using the included flower die and adhered those together.

I adhered the pink ephemera flower using foam tape, and adhered the die cut flower with liquid glue. I used glue to adhere the gold and green leaves under and around the flowers. I also added some Spellbinders Gold Mix Color Essentials Gems for a little more bling.

The third project once again uses the Hemstitch Rectangles along with lots of ephemera pieces and included stickers. I fell in love with the gold leaves, so of course, I had to cut some more of those. I centered the Think Happy Thoughts sticker in the center of my card and adhered the surrounding floral elements using foam tape. I tucked in some gold leaves using glue and added one of the included purple butterflies.

My last project actually utilizes the floral frame die cut, the flower die cut and the included stamp set! I stamped the Hello Beautiful sentiment from the stamp set using VersaMark Ink on Neenah Classic Crest 110lb and heat embossed it using Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder, trimming it afterwards. I used the Hemstitch Rectangles again to cut a panel of patterned paper and adhered the white floral frame to that.

I also cut a purple and white flower and glued those together and glued it to the corner of the floral frame. I added the sentiment pieces to the card using foam tape for dimension, as well as, one of the purple floral stickers. For added interest, I added some of the Damask Daydream Gems included in the kit.

Spellbinders June Card Kit of the Month

Hey Guys and welcome back! Today I’m showcasing a few cards that I created using the Spellbinders Wild Hello June Card Kit of the Month. If you’ve never tried their Card Kits, I highly recommend them! Everything you need to create at least ten cards is in this kit! I just love the ephemera pieces in this kit, as you’ll see from my set of cards. So let’s get into the them!

For most of my projects, I used the pack of decorative cards as the focal point, as well as, papers from the included 6×6 pack of paper. For this first Hello card, I used only elements from the kit, with the exception of the black and white twine. Everything was assembled using a combination of glue and foam tape. I did a repeat pattern of the Hello die in gold for added interest.

My second card features patterned paper, ephemera elements, puffy stickers and the Happy Birthday die. I did die cut the Happy Birthday a couple of times from heavy white cardstock and once from gold cardstock and adhered those together using glue, because dimension is life! Once again, everything was assembled using glue and foam tape.

This third card, Always You, uses those cute decorative cards again. These really do make a great focal point, which makes for a super easy card! And, I need easy sometimes! The only additional products that I used for this one is some gold splatter, a corner rounder punch and some jewel embellishments. I thought some bling was in order! Glue and foam tape pulled this one together as well!

More sunshine! More smiles! I trimmed this decorative card down to an oval, because I had in my head that this would be super cute as a shaker card! The white round oval is a die from the Elliptical Ovals set that I used in conjunction with some acetate to create the shaker. All of the other elements are from the kit.

My last card ended up being my favorite, I guess because I love the black and white elements mixed with the bright colors. Additional products used on this card were a couple of flowers that I made using the Mini Blooms and Sprigs set, along with some black jewels and a corner rounder punch. Everything was assembled with a combination of glue and foam tape.

That finishes up my projects using this fun, Wild Hello June Card Kit! This is my first card kit from Spellbinders, and I’m quite pleased at how easy it was to create cards using all of the cute tidbits included in the kit! I hope you’ll stop by their website to check it out! I’ve recently joined their Large Die of the Month and Glimmer of the Month Clubs, and am having a blast with those too! Anyhoo, thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope you enjoyed these projects!

Stay awesome sweet friends!
