Spellbinders Limited Edition, Merry Everything Christmas Kit Cards…

Hi cardmakers and friends! My post today is something a little unusual for me!  Stick with me and keep scrolling!  Five cards today and one is a die cut card from this fun, new kit from Spellbinders!

The Merry Everything Christmas Kit is an ENORMOUS holiday kit that contains OVER 630 PIECES. This gorgeous traditional holiday themed kit can create 25+ Cards, 24+ Tags and so much more. Put your creative juices to work to come up with so many more holiday projects. Plus, check out the project tutorial included in the kit along with all the fun ideas on the kit link, on the SB blog and IG. This card kit is NOT a part of our Clubs, anyone can purchase it, there’s no need to join the Club. YAY!

To add a little detail to my mistletoe card, I scored with my scor-pal a long the lines of the bow and shaped it a little with my fingers. I inked around the focal image with Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Inks and the mini ink blending tools. I added a little glitter pen to the berries but then scraped it mostly off because it covered up the red.

There is a cute car and tree die set in this kit!  I always love cars and trees at Christmas, don’t you?! hehe

I die cut both tree pieces, folded the branch piece in half and colored the trunk with a brown marker.  I cut the backer tree piece in half and glued them together and then to the car… so cute!  Several other pieces and ways to use the tree in the set also!

Tis the Season is a super cute stamp from the sentiment stamp set that comes in the kit.  Super cute and stamped very nicely with Ranger Archival Black ink.

AND… the background paper is from the 6×6 paper pad that comes in the kit!

This card panel …. so beautifully CAS (clean and simple), I just left it that way! I did corner round the cardbase corners… that is all!  I know, a cheater card for sure! hoho

Some more of the ephemera and paper from the kit. All I added was gold stickles to the poinsettia center and white gel pen on some of the pieces.  Oh, I did edge the papers and the Santa Bingo piece with ink.

On this one, the noel is a sticker from the kit, the hohoho is from a chipboard sticker set in the kit, the tag is one of several tag designs from the kit…so much festive goodness to create with in the kit!  So many things I didn’t use yet! :O

There’s even double sided tape and mounting foam squares and dots and the cardstock is really nice… a perfect red in there!

So glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoyed my wandering from my usual type posts.  It was fun for me! I’ll be back because I have lots more to share!

BF-Holiday-Blog-Hop-Social-1200x1200.jpg

If you’ve arrived from Varada Sharma, you’re on the right track! Keep reading to find out about the giveaway and my card!

A chance to win!
To celebrate this release, Spellbinders is giving away a $50 gift certificate to one lucky blog reader – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Giveaway closes on Sunday, September 1st, 11:59 pm EDT. The winner will be announced in the blog hop post the following Tuesday. The winner is responsible for shipping cost, duties and taxes.

I’m using the Grand Holiday Cabinet Card die set along with one die from the Layered Thinking of You Woodland Scene die set.

This was fun to make and so beautiful when finished.  I used a cardstock that has a little bit of silver glitter in it.  I watched a couple videos so I’d know how to use the sets to get the layers…I’m amazed at how many ways you can change this up!

I love the dimension…I used a silver and gold metallic pen to accent two of the frames.

Spellbinders August Small Die of the Month Club Card….

Hi everyone!  I’m back today with the NEW Spellbinders Small Die club of the month kit…all the dies for this come in the kit for one low price!  Super cute too!

I got to thinking…that slit!  What a cute money holder!  So I added 5 bucks to my photos. hehe

Sometimes the stash of old stuff really comes in handy…so glad I still have a couple packages of these old Basic Grey magnets. I’ll try to find some others to link up below.


I used TE cardstock and Lawn Fawn pattern paper for the accent papers on the backpack. Lawn Fawn ink to edge the backpack pieces and crayons.

The zipper and glasses are silver foil/mirror cardstock.

I even had a piece of old history outline paper!  I taped it to a piece of white cardstock because it’s so thin.

I took some more photos with a black background…just to make it hard for me to decide what to post!  urrrrgghhh haha  So just posting both flat and standing up pics today!

It’s an A2 size card and will mail for one forever stamp too! yay!

There’s another sentiment in the set too… You Rule…so cute…subscription price is just $12.50 a month!  Details HERE and how it works info. Be sure to check out all the clubs while you’re there.

One last photo…so many fun details and very easy to make.  I think this can be customized for any age too!

 

Happy Monday and thank you for stopping by!

Spellbinders Happy by Sharyn Sowell Birthday Card…

Hi everyone! Do you love the look of silhouettes like I do?  Look at this new release from Spellbinders called Happy by Sharyn Sowell!

I used the animals from the collection.  So cute!

Some pattern paper from the ‘ole stash and black cardstock…oh and glue!  I used the glue sponge to glue two of each cut together.  I need to make a video showing how I use the glue sponge.

I did mount a few with mounting tape and some things are glued flat.

I know these don’t look like Pooh and his friends but they sure remind me of them! lol  The most recent book I read with two of our grandsons, Pooh had lost one of his honey pots.  Oh tragedy! lol

Can’t help but make a gram smile you know! 😀

I’m anxious to see what all the other cardmakers made with these sets too.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

Spellbinders July Small Die of the Month Card…

Look at these cute kitties!  I had fun die piecing this set together for this card. It comes with the grass, the sentiment, everything!

I added their little whiskers from a teeny strip of black cardstock. Inked the die cuts with Distress Ink pads and the mini ink blending tool.

I made the ‘polaroid’ frame with a Spellbinders square die cut, then trimmed around it to make the frame.

This will be a birthday card for one of our granddaughters.  They kinda look like they ate too much! hehe

Spellbinders has several monthly clubs, you’ll find the link to join, HERE… so fun!  Great value!

This kit coordinates well with some previous kits and it’s so nice you can still buy them after their month!  I’ll link them up below.

Thank you for stopping by! Happy cardmaking to you!

Spellbinders June Small Die of the Month Club Cards…

Hi everyone! I’ve been working on these two cards this week using the NEW Spellbinders June Small Die of the Month Club set. (link at the bottom of this post)

Two kinds of stained glass/quilt looking cards!


In the June kit there are three sets of dies that stack/coordinate.  A hexagon set, a circle set and a fan looking set. All for a great deal!

I used one layer of the hexagon set for this first card. I die cut a lot of the black one (popped out the waste), then I die cut two of each color cardstock from Taylored Expressions, linked below, all from the same die. The color ones held together well so that made it easy to tape the back (to hole the pieces in) and then glue the black cut on top.

This ended up a ‘Hallmark’ size card.  If I was doing it again, I would cut the panel in half and make two cards! 😀

The ‘For You’ sentiment die cut is from the Spellbinders Truckin’ Through the Seasons die set.

 

My next card is using the circles from the club set.

I lined up the 3 circle dies in a row on top of an A2 card size panel.  Taped them in place with removable tape and die cut…repeated it for the next row.  It worked slick.  I didn’t even measure this time. eek! lol   I had six holes in the panel then.

I used mounting tape on the back of the panel and adhered it to a TE Granny Smith A2 size panel so that color would show through when I pieced in the circles.

I die cut the 3 circle dies from white and Taylored Expressions color cardstock. Adhered them together and glued them into the holes in the panel.

I stamped the sentiment with Archival black ink and the MISTI tool.  I cut out the word sympathy with the MISTI Cut Align ruler.

I hope I didn’t make it sound complicated because it’s just a matter of cutting enough pieces, after you decide what colors you want to use, gluing and putting them in place. 😀

I wish you could see them in person… so much better! hehe

Thank you for stopping by and holler if you have any questions!

Spellbinders Truckin’ Through the Seasons Birthday Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  I’m finally getting our oldest grandson’s birthday card posted!  There is a reason for the colors and the personalized license plate!  He just turned 19, so there’s 19 balloons,  the orange and green balloons represent the two robotics teams he’s been on and the black truck because he has a black car! lol

I had so much fun playing with this Spellbinders Truckin’ Through the Seasons Die set.  So glad I bought it!  I can’t wait to use it for Christmas especially but this was really fun! I die cut 19 balloons and inked the edges with coordinating ink and the ink blending tool.

The light reflection pieces on the balloons are die cut vellum. The die cut for that comes with the Balloon die set linked below.

I did make the license plate myself.  I printed the name out on the computer and it is his actual license plate.

Quite a bit of dimension but it still fits in an A2 envelope.  I would use an A6 envelope if I was putting it in the mail.

The Birthday Pennant die is discontinued but the Birthday Letters are still available…link below.

The sky is definitely the limit with this set! So many great things ahead for Ethan.  Exciting but so hard to believe 19 years have gone by since he was born! So proud of him!

Thanks for stopping by!
