Hello everyone! I have some exciting news to share... I will now be sharing projects created with the Spellbinders card kit of the month! If you have never seen the Spellbinders monthly card kit you really need to check them out. There are also card kit extras available, as well. The amount of product that you receive in each kit far exceeds the monthly subscription amount of $38.50. The kit for May is called Beach Day and it is full of fun beachy products like shell stickers and chipboard stickers, a pad of 6x6 papers with a beach theme, as well as a beach themed stamp set and die set. I had so much fun creating the three cards I'm sharing today and tried to use at least one thing from all the different items in the kit. UPDATE: The May kit of the month is now sold out! You can still get the kit as part of a value club package, but you cannot sign up to buy just the kit.
First up is a card that I made using a die from the April card kit. The April kit included a die that creates a little envelope. I used some aqua cardstock from the May kit to die cut my envelope and then assembled it. I pulled out a piece of patterned paper from the 6x6 pad with a water/beach look to it. I die cut it with the largest Essentials Rectangle die and adhered it to one of the premade card bases. I then adhered my little envelope and filled it with alot of the shell stickers. I then added the three chipboard stickers to finish things off. This card is super dimensional and I'm thinking I may turn it into a decor piece! I'm going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.
For the second card I used the layout from Freshly Made Sketches. I layered up a frame on some patterned paper from the kit with the fun beach umbrella, a beachy little handbag and a camera. I then added the sentiment and a few little star stickers.
Mojo Monday. I die cut some aqua cardstock from the kit and then added the patterned paper per the sketch. I die cut gold metallic cardstock with a die from the kit. I actually cut two pieces and adhered them together to create the strip. You can also use that die to create a frame. The patterned papers were die cut and adhered per the sketch. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set with a teal ink and then adhered all the ephemera pieces. I finished with the little gold stars.
