Thanks So Mush | Spellbinders Large Die of the Month September 2019

Hello crafty friends! Check out these cute little mushrooms from the Spellbinders Large Die of the Month club for this month. This die kit also comes with the dies to make gnomes and a squirrel, but I really wanted to use the mushrooms on this card!

When you have a card idea with lots of die cutting, I find it best to figure out all the cuts you will need and then get them all cut first. So that’s how I started. Once I had all of the pieces I assembled my mushrooms with some liquid adhesive.

For the background of my card I stamped the Sketchy Lines background stamp from Simon Says Stamp onto some white cardstock using Oatmeal Cookie ink from Fun Stampers Journey. Next I made an A2 size card base out of Dark Roast cardstock (also from FSJ) and adhered my stamped background onto that. I arranged all of my mushrooms on the card and once I figured out a placement I was happy with I popped them up with foam tape. I then glued the grass the to bases of the mushrooms with liquid glue.

For the sentiment I found some stamps in my collection which say “thanks so much” and carefully masked off the letter “c” in the word “much” with some tape. I then inked up the stamps and removed the tape so that the ink was not on that one letter. I stamped that onto some white cardstock with the Oatmeal Cookie so my sentiment read “thanks so m ch” and then I cleaned the stamps off really well. I then placed the sentiment into my Misti so that the letter “s” from the word “so” lined up where the missing “c” was. I masked off all the letters except the “s” and inked up the stamp. I then stamped the “s” so that my completed sentiment would read “thanks so mush” which goes perfectly with the theme of the card.

I cut my sentiment into a strip and glued it along the bottom edge of the the grass. For the finishing touched I added a few sequins and dot embellishments. I also went over the white spots on the mushroom tops with Journey Glaze.

Spooky Action Wobbler Card | Spellbinders Small Die of the Month

Hey guys! I am excited to share today’s card with you. This one is so cute, I love the little ghosts from Spellbinders’ Small Die of the Month Club. And the best part? The little ghost in the middle wobbles!

1.jpg

I started with a piece of Lavender cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I placed the Diagonal Stripes stencil over that and went over it with Nuvo Black Diamond Glimmer Paste.

3.jpg

I took the ghost die from the kit and cut two out of white cardstock and one out of white glitter cardstock. I also cut the pumpkin out of some orange cardstock. I cut some small pieces of black cardstock and glued them to the back of the ghosts and pumpkin to cover up the holes where the eyes and mouth are.

2.jpg

I glued two of the ghosts and the pumpkin with some liquid adhesive. For the third ghost (the glitter one) I used an action wobbler to adhere it to the card. This is what makes it wiggle! Using foam tape I glued the panel onto a black card base.

4.jpg

For the first part of the sentiment I die cut the word “boo” from the kit out of both black and green cardstock. I glued the green letters on top of the black ones to make them thicker and then glued them to the card. For the second half of the sentiment I embossed a stamp from the Best Witches stamp set onto orange cardstock with white embossing powder. I cut that into a strip and popped it up on the bottom of the card, and that actually finished this card up!

Cute Little Backpack Cards | Spellbinders Small Die of the Month August 2019

Hey y’all, I hope you are doing well! Today I have some cute back to school cards created with the August 2019 Spellbinders Small Die of the Month Club. This die set was so much fun to use I could just make one card so I made three!

11.jpg

This kit comes with everything you need to make a tiny little backpack, a few sentiments, and some knick-knacks to put inside! Yup, that’s right, you can put things inside the backpack! I highly recommend you give the video above a watch to see exactly how there are put together.

1.jpg

For the first card I used Cotton Candy cardstock from Simon Says Stamp, Neenah white cardstock, rose gold paper, and Really Rainbow patterned paper in order to make the backpack.

10.jpg

The background paper for this card is from the Honey Bee Stamps Over the Rainbow paper pad. I glued that onto an A2 card base and then adhered the backpack onto that.

8.jpg

For the inside of the card I created crayons out of a bunch of different colors of Simon Says Stamp cardstock and a piece of paper out of some Really Rainbow Lawn Fawn patterned paper. The inside sentiment was cut with some of the dies that come in the die kit.

9.jpg

The sentiment on the outside of the backpack comes from the Simple Sentiments No. 1 stamp set. I stamped that with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink onto a strip of Neenah white cardstock and then popped it up with foam tape. To finish up this card I went around the edge of the background paper with dashed lines using a white gel pen. I also went over the white parts of the backpack with a glitter brush.

4.jpg

For the next card I used Plum cardstock from Hero Arts, Buttercream cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey, rose gold paper, and Fly and Scrap patterned paper in order to make the backpack. The background patterned paper come from the Really Rainbow paper pack.

3.jpg

The sentiment on this card comes from the Tiny Words Birthday stamp set. I stamped it with black ink onto the Buttercream cardstock.

7.jpg

On this last card I used Gina K Designs In the Navy cardstock, Doodlebug patterned paper, black cardstock, and a holographic silver paper.

5.jpg

On the inside is a notebook made with Over the Rainbow patterned paper, black cardstock, and white cardstock, I also have some glasses made with black cardstock and three crayons made with Lipstick Red, Audrey Blue, and Orange Peel cardstock from Simon Says Stamp.

6.jpg

The sentiment on the outside of the card is the same as the sentiment on the first card. The sentiment on the inside of the backpack comes from the Tiny Words stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. To finish the card I went over the black parts on the backpack with a glitter brush.

12.jpg

These cards were so fun to create and would make awesome back to school cards for any age. I also think they could be used for things like graduation or leaving for college cards and you could stick some money in the pocket.

2.jpg

I found these little backpacks to be a wonderful way to show off some of my favorite patterned paper!

Creating A Floral Thank You Card | Spellbinders

Today I created a card using some products from Spellbinders!

1.jpg

I created my background using the solid leaf images from the Botanical Feather from Spellbinders set and Midnight Green cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped the images with Versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I popped up the background panel onto a base that was the same color.

2.jpg

I stamped the floral image from the set four times and colored them in with Copic markers. I cut the flowers out using my Scan N Cut.

4.JPG

I stamped a sentiment from the Floral Love stamp set from Spellbinders onto a die cut circle with Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. I mounted that circle to a vellum circle and popped it up on my card. I then arranged the flowers around the circle and glued them with Gina K Connect Glue.

3.JPG

I stamped another sentiment from the Tiny Words stamp set from Simon Says Stamp onto some black cardstock and embossed it in white. I cut that to a small strip and glued it to my card. For the finishing touched I added some sequins, some Wink of Stella, and some dashed lines with a gold marker.

Spellbinders Small Die of the Month January 2019 | First Crush

Today I am sharing a card created using the Spellbinders Small Die of the Month Club. This kit allows you to put together a cute little paper doll and it comes with lots of options so that you can make a really unique character. It also comes with dies to make a cute little heart balloon.

1.jpg

I cut out all of the pieces for my doll from different colors of cardstock. I used a piece of patterned paper for the dress. I also cut out the balloon and sting.

2.jpg

I used Gina K Connect glue to put my paper doll together. I decided to make a 4x8 card base for this design and I popped up a blue piece of cardstock onto that. I glued down my paper doll to the card. I also added the heart balloon.

3.jpg

Using a T-Square ruler and a white gel pen I added a frame around the doll. For my sentiment I stamped the ‘hugs’ stamp from the Floral Love stamp set onto some dark gray cardstock. I stamped it with Versamark ink and embossed it in Alabaster white embossing powder. I cut the sentiment into a strip and popped it up on the side of the card.

4.jpg

For the finishing touched on the card I first went over the balloon with Glossy Accents to give it some dimension. Next I added some cute puffy heart stickers around the sentiment. I used a white gel pen to add some details and highlights to the paper doll. Finally I created a fun wavy swirl design along the background using my white gel pen, some small clear star sequins, and a Wink of Stella glitter brush.
