Hello! I'm popping in to share cards I have made with the February Spellbinders club kits. You can find out all about the club kits right here. My cards this month all share a similar look because I decided to use some patterned paper from P13 for all the cards. First up is my card using the embossing folder kit.

The name of this month's embossing folder is Sketch Floral and as you can see it has a really lovely floral design. When I started making my card I had tried a technique Jennifer McGuire shared
where you ink up the embossing folder with a brayer. I don't know if it was the ink I used or what, but the technique didn't work that well for me. So I moved on to another technique she shared where you ink up the embossed cardstock directly using the brayer. I flipped the embossed piece over to the flat side and inked up the panel. I then trimmed it down to fit my card front. I used some P13 The Four Seasons Summer patterned paper to hot foil the sentiment from the February Glimmer kit
with my Glimmer
using bright pink foil
. The P13 patterned paper is very heavy weight and smooth perfect for getting a good result when foiling. I then wrapped the strip around my embossed panel and secured it in the back. I adhered my panel to a white cardstock base. Since I still had part of the embossed panel left I trimmed out one of the flowers, adhered it with foam tape and then added some Spellbinders Crystal Mix gems
in white to the center of the flower.
For this card I focused on the Glimmer kit of the month
called Anytime Glimmer Sentiments
. Some of the sentiments are in the pretty script font that you see on my card and they are meant to be at an angle. As you can see I was able to place this particular sentiment in a straight line fashion (hope that makes sense!). I also used bright pink foil to foil the sentiment. I trimmed down a piece of the patterned paper with an Essentials rectangle
and then added the two thin strips of bright pink paper. The panel was then adhered to my card front. I foiled sentiment on another piece of the P13 patterned paper with my Glimmer
, die cut it with a smaller Essentials rectangle
and adhered it to my card front. I finished the card off with a little flower and two leafy stems from the February stamp and die kit. The Crystal Mix gems
were also added to the small flower.
The final card is a mini slimline. I used up scraps that I had from making the two other cards to make this one using the February stamp/die club kit. I stamped the cute typewriter from the stamp set on bright green patterned paper using a bright green ink. I then die cut it using my Platinum 6. The sentiment was stamped on a scrap of the patterned paper that didn't have a pattern on it with the same bright green ink and then die cut with another die from the kit. When you die cut the typewriter it cuts a slit which allows you to slip the small rectangle through and secure in the back. I also stamped a little heart from the stamp set on bright pink patterned paper with a dark pink ink three times and die cut them. The little flowers were created using another scrap of the patterned paper with no pattern on it. I used the same bright green and dark pink inks. I adhered my patterned papers to my mini slimline card base and then popped up the typewriter and the little hearts. The flowers were then tucked in behind the typewriter. I finished by adding Glossy Accents to the hearts and typewriter keyes. I think this fits the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge so I will be posting it there.
