I've been invited to play with the January card kit from Spellbinders.
Have you seen their different clubs?! You might have not heard of it yet, as I hadn't heard of it before they contacted me. I was totally surprised when I saw the website and all they were offering!
They have several kit clubs and they also have several Value Club options available for those who would like to join multiple clubs at once.
So anyway, I received the box, which was filled with goodies: a 6x6 paper pad, a set of dies, a stamp set, a pack of pre-made die cuts and some 3D die cuts as well, a bottle of sequins, a sheet of enamel stickers, a sheet of letter stickers, some sheets of card stock and finally some card bases and enveloppes. There was also double sided tape and foam adhesive.
I was excited to start creating and didn't even bother clearing my table before I sat down to create! lol
He are the cards I created:
This first card I would like to show you was made exclusively with the add-on kit of the month. You can find the products here. These products, unlike their Club products, are available to everyone, not only Club members.
I used the XOXO die cut on patterned paper here and glued the little X's and O's behind my 3D bear. I stamped my sentiment on a piece of patterned paper that I cut into a banner shape. It's a simple card that you can make in just some minutes.
I loved that hot air balloon die cut and wanted to give it lots of space to breathe so I simply mounted it on one of the plain colored card stock and stitched sun rays behind it in the colors of the rainbow. I then added the die cut banner. Very simple, yet it is one of my favorite!
For this card I simply gathered some of my favorite die cuts and made a cluster like I often do on my scrapbooking layouts. I layered it on top of a piece of patterned paper where I had previously stitched a frame with pink thread.
For this cards I used the typewriter die. I backed it with patterned paper. I stamped my sentiment on vellum and die cut it with the rectangle die that came with the kit. It's the perfect size to make a note as it fits in the typewriter. I added some red sparkly stickers for the XOX and the end of my note. I used my sewing machine to stitch 2 pink lines at the left of the lined patterned paper and sprinkled some black ink. I adhered the typewriter using foam adhesive.
I used the rectangle die again to make this small polaroid frame. I simply cut out the rectangle, directly in the card base, and I then trimmed around it leaving more space at the bottom. I've then die cut the word LOVE at the bottom of the polaroid frame, but it would have been a good place to stamp something as well. I blocked the whole left in the card base with some pink card stock and offsetted the polaroid frame. I added the heart and birdies die cuts, some sequins and the YOU stickers which I ran through my sewing machine.
This card is also a base of patterned paper with a stitched rectangle. I used the leaves/branches die to die cut white flowers and branches. I love the mix of the white and the colors of the pre-made die cuts.
For this card I decided to use the camera and repeated the polaroid frame idea. I mounted the 2 elements on a piece of patterned paper and added different hearts and sequins to make it festive.
Voilà, 7 cards to inspire you!! I still have so much things left from the kit, that I could make many more cards!!
Thank you again Spellbinders for this opportunity!
Talk to you soon,
