Spellbinders August Card Kit

 Hello, Hello!

August.  Can you believe it??  I can't believe I have to go back to work this month.  The summer flew by, but, I think I say that every year.  

With the beginning of the month comes new stamp releases and new monthly kits!  Spellbinders has a Card Kit of the Month.  Now I will be the first to admit, I have always been leery of kits, wondering if there would be stuff I liked etc.  I decided to give the Card Kit Club a try. 

 


I was pleasantly surprised at the VARIETY!  stamps, dies, patterned paper, di cut shapes, puffy stickers and other embellishments, card bases, cardstock, envelopes and even adhesives! So without further ado, here is what I did with the Spellbinders August Card Kit

I love the adorable pencil stamp! 


Using my MISTI,  I stamped the pencil stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink to make a frame for the sentiment and collage of die cut shapes.  The pencils were colored in with Copics.  This sentiment was just perfect for my teacher friend who gives her all to her students.  This kit even came with the fire engine red sequins! 


Yep, this adorable easel is a stamp, as is the heart.  The easel was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copics.  Then the heart was stamped in a pretty coral color and the whole thing was fussy cut out.  

I used a piece of floral patterned paper from the kit and die cut a circle from it.  I used the Nestabilities Hemstitch Circle Dies to do this (NOT in kit).  The paper was adhered to the card base using craft foam and then the easel was popped up over the circle with the foam adhesive that comes in the kit.  The sentiment was heat embossed with Alabaster white embossing powder on the navy cardstock.  I added a bit of gold mirror cardstock (yes, it is in the kit as well) behind the larger of the two sentiment strips and popped them both up on foam adhesive.  I finished it off with a sweet coral red foam heart.  


If you are a die lover, this is where it gets super fun!  The paint palette and paint brushes were die cut out from white cs and colored with Copics.  I used the Gold Mirrored cs for the ferrules on the brushes.  Super fun!  Again, used a piece of patterned paper on the card base and then popped up the palette and brush with the supplied foam tape.  The sentiment was heat embossed on the navy cardstock and another brush adhered to the card.  

And lastly, these adorable paint tubes! 


The tubes where die cut out from white cs and then colored with Copics.  the caps were die cut from the Gold Mirrored cardstock.  The background panel was done using the direct to paper technique.  I love it when things come out exactly the way you saw them in your head! 

The tubes were adhered to the background panel with the supplied adhesive, then the sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  The puffy 'friend' sticker and puffy heart sticker were added. 


 

There you have it!  4 very different cards, using lots of different supplies in the Card Kit of the Month.

To summarize, is there variety?  Yes!  Is there something for everyone?  Yes!  Is it worth it?  Yes!  

Each month, you can also purchase extras with the kit Here.

Thanks so much for stopping by, especially if you made it through this long winded post!

This Old House is New Again with Impression Obsession!

 Hello Everyone!  

Welcome to Old is New with Impression Obsession, where we pull out those older but still fabulous stamps.  I love that this keeps me using things I have had a while.  

Today I am using this super cool house image.  First off, I am a sucker for architecture and design, second for fabulous pen and ink work, which is exactly what this image, House with Porch by Gary Robertson. is.  


This is pretty straight forward- stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on white cs and colored with Copics.  It is paired with a sentiment, Wishing You, heat embossed with black embossing powder on vellum.  

Head over to the Impression Obsession  blog to see what the rest of the team has to inspire you with today!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Berries

 Hello, Hello!  

Yep, another Christmas card!  This CAS card uses one small stamp, aside from the sentiment.  




The berry branch image in the Spellbinders Home for Christmas Sentiments Stamp Set is so pretty, and was super easy to turn into a large branch just by stamping it multiple times.  Once I had the branch stamped, I drew in the snow mounds with a Pigma Micron Pen.  I used Copics to add a bit of a shadow to the hill in he forground and a bit of a pink sky behind.  The sentiment is from the adorable Holiday Gnomes Stamp Set, which should be back in stock tomorrow (fingers crossed).  

For some shine, I spritzed the panel with a shimmery spray and added a few sequins.  

That's it for me!  Have a great Sunday, All!

Christmas Ornaments

 Hello!  

Today's card is- surprise!- a Christmas card.  I have used another new die from Spellbinders.  Super cute, super simple and make super cute CAS cards~


The set is the Holiday Decor Dies.  The set has your classic Christmas icons- ornaments, snowflakes, and stars.  I colored the ornaments with Copics and added shiny gold ornament holders.  The sentiment is from the new Create a Christmas Sentiment Die Set.  I have used the stacked die technique here.  Some black and white striped paper give the card a contemporary look.  A few sequins finish the card.  

Have you checked out the challenge at There's a Stamp for That?  This week your challenge options are llama, weddings or stripes.  I could not believe that I had no llama images so that was out.  Stripes sounded like the way to go this week!  

I am linking up to Festive Friday; I have used, red, blue and metallic in my card. 


Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Slimline Christmas with Spellbinders

 Hello and Happy Friday! 

These Spellbinders projects are coming fast and furious, only because they have released so many great products!  These Circle Kaleidoscope Slimline Dies are the bomb!  I love how versatile they are.  For this card, I just used the ornament portion of the die set. 


I used forest green, aqua, and gold mirrored cs for the card.  The kaleidoscope dies really pack a punch and allow for soooo many different looks based on colors selected.  The background has subtle texture that I could not get to photograph; I dry embossed with a stencil.  The greeting is from the new Create a Christmas Sentiment Dies- I stacked several sentiments together for dimension.  Some Simon Says Stamp Moonshine Sequins finish the card.  

The snow peeps card earlier this week, HERE, uses the background portion of this slimline die.  Super versatile!  And being the cheapskate that I am, I love versatile!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
