Spellbinders Large Die Of The Month Dec ’22

Spellbinders Large Die Of The Month for Dec ’22 is all Valentine’s Day and Love themed. It is called the Blooming Heart. This die set is large enough to create a 5 by 7 card or use it as a shaped card. But indeed you can fit it on an A2 card-front. Which is what I have done here for my inspiration.

Hello Everyone!

I am here today sharing my inspiration for the Large Die Of The Month For Dec ’22 with a fun twist to a regular die cut card. Here is what the die looks like:

This die cuts this large Heart shape, the floral elements and this beautiful “With Love” word die. The floral elements are layered pieces to create beautiful dimensional flowers.

Here is what I have created with this die.

Focal Image

It’s obvious that my main focus is this beautiful heart shaped bloom. I didn’t use the heart die for my card today but just the floral part of it. I started by die-cutting all the elements with spellbinders card-stocks. The leaves in Fern Color Essential Card-stock. Then the flowers with Barely Peach Color Essential Card-stock. Then i die-cut some layers with gold glitter card-stock from my stash. I added some shading to the flowers with Tea Die Disstressed Oxide Ink and Detail Blending brush. I love these brushes, they are soft and small enough to blend color in small areas like these flowers. Then I finished adding some flowers with liquid glue and some with foam tape on the leafy die cut. My focal image was now ready to go on a card.

Background

For my background today I wanted to use the Embossing Folder Of The Month For Dec ’22. This embossing folder is called Heart Blooms and it looks like this:

This is a large embossing folder so you can do all card sizes with just one embossing folder. It is definitely a great value and adds just the perfect texture for your cards.

As you can see I have embossed an A2 panel of Teal Topaz Color Essential Card-stock and them cut it in the middle. Because, I wanted to create an easel card. This is what an easel card looks like:

Easel card is a card where the front panel folds but the decorative part of the card design still stays upright and you can display the card with another element stopping it from closing completely exactly like an easel.

So the reason of cutting the front panel in the middle is to make it easier to fold. I adhered the pieces in the front of the card aligning the cut very close. So it looks like it’s just one piece when the card is closed. I created a flower with some leaves for the inside as a stopper.

Card Base

This card-base is created a little differently. It is just a top folding A2 size card base with the front part scored and folded along the middle. You just take a half panel of card-stock cut it along the center lengthwise. Score at 2 and a quarter inch and then 5 and a half inch.

Sentiment

This die set comes with the word die but for my card today I used another sentiment die cut from the Small Die Of The Month For Dec ’22. Which looks like this:

I used the sentiment “Forever Mine” for my card today. With this I with some sequin embellishments.

I hope this inspires you.

Spellbinders Large Die Oct 22

Spellbinders’ Large die of the month for Oct 22 is this beautiful die to crate fun pop up cards. This is how this die set looks like.

Here’s what I created with this die.

SPELLBINDERS LARGE DIE CLUB 0CT 2022

I used Spellbinders Dahlia Color Essential Card-stock to cut out the base of this pop up card. In the background behind the circle window I added a piece of pattern paper that is dark purple with gold dots.

For the sides I used layered pink and gold die cuts.

LDOM OCT 22

Even though, there are actually two layers on top of each other added as the pop up feature, it folds flat when the card is in the closed position. I didn’t use the pop up feature the way it was intended. Instead, I created a little z fold in the flap which you are supposed to glue to the base in the top and bottom. That creates like a spring to the front piece hence creates a pop up effect.

The ornament was the most fun to create. It has all these stitching holes and details. I used pink and gold embroidery thread to do the stitching. For the detailed design on the ornament I used gold mirror card-stock. I hung the ornament with a gold thread behind the cut out window.

Again, I used a leftover piece of watercolored paper for cutting out the poinsettia petals and leaves to decorate the front of my card. This poinsettia petals and leaves dies are included in this die set.

For the sentiment I used Small die of the month for oct 22 to cut out “Holiday Cheer” and added it with liquid glue.

This finished my card for today. Hope you find it inspiring.

Spellbinders Large Die Club Sep ’22

The large die club for the month of September from Spellbinders is such a fun one. It has this tractor truck and some fall elements like pumpkins, gourds, and corn. It is a subscription and you get more than the value of the die. And here’s a bonus (cue the drumroll). When you join the subscription club you get the shipping free!

Hello everyone!

Today I am sharing a bunch of cards I have created featuring the LARGE DIE OF THE MONTH FOR SEP ’22 and the EMBOSSING FOLDER OF THE MONTH FRO SEP ’22.

These dies are so fun that I couldn’t stop at just one card. I created not one, not two, not three, but 4 cards and I have tons of other ideas to use this die. If only time was something I had more of just to craft and enjoy.

Here are the cards:

I created three slimline and one A2 size cards. Let’s take a look at the first one.

Thankful Pumpkins Card

Large Die of the month septemnber 22

As always, I started by die cutting the pieces of the truck and the wagon behind it with Spellbinders card-stocks. The color palette I picked just screams fall.

The assembly is always the most tedious part but is almost like putting the puzzle pieces together; the amusement after the puzzle is completed is worth every effort.

For the background I used the EMBOSSING FOLDER OF THE MONTH FOR SEP ’22 and embossed a panel, which I later matted with gold card-stock to match the gold die cuts. I then tied a black and white twine towards the bottom of the panel. On a slimline card-base I adhered a fall colored pattern paper, followed by the embossed panel with a shiny gold border; then finally the die cut truck on foam tape.

Next come the flowers. I used the MINI BLOOMS AND SPRIGS ETCHED DIES FROM THE SLIMLINE COLLECTION to die cut some red and orange flowers with gold leaves for the finishing touches. I loved how this Thankful Pumpkin Truck card turned out. How about you?

Happy Fall Teal Truck Card

Card made with large die of the month for sep 22 and embossing folder for sep 22

This card is created similarly as the first one. The only difference here is that the background is made up of one whole embossed piece. Instead of the black and white twine, I used a black and white striped pattern paper to ground the truck die cut image.

The teal card-stock is also from Spellbinders. I looked at Pinterest for some ideas and saw this teal truck which I loved. There are pumpkin and a gourd on the truck.

For the decorations I used some blooms and leaves in cream and pearlescent card-stock. This finished my second card.

Truck Background Hello Fall Card

Fall card created with the large die of the month sep 22

After creating two cards, this idea came to my mind about creating one with just trucks as a background. I created three trucks with red, orange, and yellow card-stock.

For this one, I embossed the card-base itself, arranging them in rows but alternating their places. This adds the feeling of trucks passing in and out of the scene.

Here you can see the dimension this card has. Lastly, I added the die cut “Hello Fall” sentiment which is from SMALL DIE OF THE MONTH MEMBERSHIP.

I didn’t think this card needed any extra embellishments. What do you think about this one?

Corns In The Cob Thankful Card

Creativity has this snowball effect. One card inspires another one. When I saw this corn image in this die set, I wanted to create one card with just the corns.

This one is an A2 size card. I die cut and assembled three corns on the cob. These cobs have so much detail in them.

For the background, I took a piece of blue card-stock and used the embossing folder on it. Then I matted it with a black and white striped pattern paper showing a quarter inch of border around it. I added the panel on the card-base using foam tape.

Three corns in a row looks perfect for this card. Then I added a die-cut “Thankful” sentiment from the LARGE DIE OF THE MONTH FOR SEP ’22.

This does it for the last card. No extra embellishments needed. I just loved this simple look.

Hope this inspired you to create some fun projects with the Spellbinders dies. If you liked my projects please comment below. I love hearing your thoughts about my makes.

Here are some other Spellbinders cards I have created using their dies.
