Spellbinders January Clubs

 Hello!  Hope your year is off to a good start.  I'm popping in with two cards that I created using the Spellbinder January stamp/die club and Glimmer club kits.   This month all the Spellbinders club kits coordinate seamlessly.  One of my cards uses the embossing folder that is part of the new embossing folder club.  You can see that card here.   (Compensated affiliate links used where possible.  Using my links allows me to earn a small commission at no cost to you.  Thank you for your support.)

This first card uses the Glimmer club kit.  It didn't turn out exactly as I had envisioned it would, but sometimes that happens, right?!  The glimmer kit includes two heart shaped glimmer plates the one you see and one that has a floral motif.  There are also multiple sentiment plates and then dies to cut out the hearts, as well as some flowers and a leafy stem.  I glimmered the heart sentiment plate using Polished Brass foil on Spellbinders Pink Sand cardstock and die cut it with the heart die.  I then decided to create a wreath to place the heart sentiment on top of.   I traced a circle on to my white cardstock panel and then arranged the leafy stems around the circle.  I will admit that the first one did not turn out and I had to start over.  The second wreath turned out better, but is still a little wonky, lol!   The flowers were cut from Pink Sand and white cardstock and adhered around the wreath.   The flowers were actually attached to the leafy stems wrong which might be why things look a little off.   Going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of something new.  My new is the glimmer kit.

The second card uses the stamp/die club kit.  You can also just subscribe to the stamp of the month club.  There are three heart images, some smaller floral/heart images, as well as multiple sentiments.  The dies include a die to cut out the hearts, dies for the small images, as well as two dies to cut out the sentiments.  I stamped one of the heart images ink Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Copic friendly cardstock and colored the image with Copic markers.  I had decided that I was going to use Spellbinders Waterfall cardstock and emboss it with the Spreading Love embossing folder so I made sure to match the color of Copic markers I used to the cardstock as closely as I could.   Once the coloring was done I stamped over the image (I made sure to leave everything in my stamping tool to get a perfect restamp) with watermark ink, covered it with clear embossing powder and heat set.  I die cut my panel of Waterfall cardstock first using a Spellbinders Essentials rectangle die and then positioned that in the Spreading Love embossing folder.  I taped it in place so it wouldn't shift and then ran it through my Platinum 6.  I layered on the heart and a sentiment from the stamp set that I also clear embossed and then die cut with one of the banner dies.  I finished off the card with a ton of little red gems from the Spellbinders Essentials red gems

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!

Both are gorgeous, Rosemary! You've inspired me to get the Glimmer machine, maybe now the kit too?
