Romantic Heart Valentine’s Day Card

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. This Romantic Heart Valentine’s Day card is perfect for this occasion.

This post will be my last one for Spellbinders Club Kits for 2022. I have shared previous posts featuring all the other monthly club kits from Spellbinders for the month of December. Today my romantic heart Valentine’s Day card features the Clear Stamp and Die Club for Dec 22 from Spellbinders. This stamp is all about love and hearts. Fun floral designs on the hearts send out romantic vibe.

Here is what the stamp set looks like:

Hello Everyone!

Here is my take on it.

I have created an A2 size card with one of the large heart stamp and the sentiment today.

I started off by stamping the heart and the sentiment on a white card-stock with Versamark Embossing Ink. Then I embossed using Gold Embossing Powder. Lately, the Gold Embossing powder from Brutus Monroe has become my favorite gold embossing powder. I then colored the flowers and leaves on the heart using Copic markers.

After heat-setting the embossing, I used the coordinating die to cut out the heart and paper trimmer to cut the sentiment in a strip.

For the background. I took a panel of pale pink pattern paper with peonies. I think it goes well with my card design. Then I embossed a piece of pink card-stock about half an inch smaller on all sides besides the top. I used the Embossing Folder of The month for Dec 22. Then I splattered some gold paint on it. To create a border, I matted this embossed panel with another lighter pink card-stock piece leaving one eights inch border around it leaving the top edge flushed with the top of the card-base.

Then I added the heart with foam tape with some gold thread swirled behind it. After that comes the placement of the sentiment strip. I just added the sentiment strip directly on the card-base with liquid glue at the bottom right of the heart.

Finally, I added some clear sequins to embellish my card and called this one done. Wish you all a Happy Holiday Season and a very Happy New Year 2023.

Hugs,

Spellbinders Stamp Of The Month

Spellbinders have released the Stamp Of The Month for October 22. This Stamp is a beautiful Christmas Foliage with Some Christmas sentiments.

I have created a card using this stamp and coordinating die set in blue wintery color combination.

Here is what I have come up with:

My Background

I took a piece of pattern paper with snowflakes pattern on it for the background. You can hardly see the pattern in the photos because I inked it with Hickory Smoke Distressed oxide ink to tone it down a little.

Then took another piece of Card-stock, embossed it with the Embossing Folder of the Month for Oct 22. I matted it with silver card-stock.

The Focus

For the main focus of this card I stamped the large floral cluster from the Stamp of the month Oct 22 and one small poinsettia image on Watercolor paper. Then I started coloring the image with my Karin Marker in some cool but muted tones. Blues, grays and browns. I didn’t spend too much time coloring this image. As I just wanted a hint of color to this beautiful image.

I then die-cut the images using the coordinating dies. After that I added the large cluster with foam tape on the left top corner. Whereas the smaller flower was perfect on the side. I left the bottom for the sentiment.

Sentiment

At last my sentiment came from the Small Die Of The Month For Oct 22 I chose ” Merry Christmas ” for this card. The words in the same blue card-stock as the embossed background. For the layering outline I used silver card-stock.

Here is a link where I used the Small Die Of The Month For Oct 22:

Spellbinders Stamp Of The Month Aug 2022

On my post today I am sharing two cards I have created with the Stamp Of The Month Aug 2022 by Spellbinders.

Hello everyone!

I have been creating with the small and large dies of the month from spellbinders for a long time. This makes me so delighted to have spellbinders send me their stamp of the month to play with.

This month’s stamp is a beautiful floral stamp and floral theme is my favorite when it comes to creating cards.

Here’s what I’ve created:

Started off by stamping a bunch of flower images in yellows and leaves in two different shades of greens. I used Altenew Inks for my stamping.

Thereafter, I die cut all of the stamped images with the coordinating dies that came with the stamp of the month.

My die cut bowl was full of flowers and leaves ready to go on cards. Almost like a bunch of cut flowers ready to be arranged on a vase.

Yellow Stamped Flower Thank you Card

My first card is an A2 size card. I wanted it to be in landscape orientation and have the fold on the top.

For the background I cut an woven textured pattern paper to fit my A2 card- front. Then I added another piece, slightly different in pattern but similar as it’s from the same paper pack. For this piece I added a mat of yellow card-stock behind it to match my yellow flowers. This one is added with foam tape for dimension.

Then I started arranging the flowers in two corners left bottom and right top. Initially by adding a large flower with foam tape and then smaller flowers and leaves around it. It took me a while before deciding on the right arrangement. Once I was happy I went ahead and secured the arrangement with liquid glue.

For the sentiment I picked “Thank you” for this card. The sentiment is stamped with black on a piece of leftover scrap of the pattern paper. It wouldn’t look like a separate piece if I hadn’t added the grey border piece behind it.

Finally I added some yellow jewels in the center of the flowers and some scattered across the card to finish my card.

Mini Slimline Happy Birthday Card

When I said I stamped and die cut a bunch of flowers I really meant it. As I had enough flowers for a second card. But obviously I didn’t want to create a copy of my first one. So I added a little twist to my design on my second card.

This one is a mini slimline card means it measures 3 and a half inches by 6 and a half inches. It also has a fold on top.

I used large die of the month to cut a pattern paper piece that matched my project. For the middle layer instead of a pattern paper I used a grey card-stock. The border of this piece is so pretty.

Before adding the flowers on this card I stamped a “happy birthday” sentiment on a strip and added it along the bottom.

Again like before I started arranging the flowers. One cluster on the left bottom, one on the right top.

When I was adding the green leaves on this card I did not like how it looked with the grey background. So I stamped more leaves with grey and brown inks. I like how it looked.

Once my flower arrangement met my expectations I added the final touch with some yellow jewels and called this card done.

It is my first time creating with the Stamp Of The Month from Spellbinders and I had so much fun.

Hope my creation inspires you. Happy crafting!

Hugs
