1 Kit 10 (more!) cards – Spellbinders Card Kit of the month – Nov 2019

Hi crafty friends, I have 10 (yes, more 10!) cards to share with you today, all of which use Spellbinders Card Kit of the month for Nov 2019.

When it comes to Christmas color schemes, I think I am the in-between girl  – I am not a huge fan of the traditional red-green colors, and yet, I can’t handle the extra bright fuchsia kinda colors. So I really loved the the muted blue-reds-greens in this month’s card kit. Also the dies are super easy to work with yet very beautiful, so they totally stole my heart :)

That’s why I ended up creating a total of 15 cards with this kit! I shared 5 cards here already – using 1 common technique to create them. Today I will share the 10 more cards where each one is different than the others. Not a common trick across any of them.

{ In order to keep this post from becoming too long, I will keep the descriptions short. But feel free to comment and ask questions if you need to. Also, I’d love to hang out with you on Instagram. My handle there is @varadasharma. Do drop by and say hello :) }

Card 1:

Die cut ornaments using white base and two types of gold paper (textured and glitter). Die cut and assembled flowers using cardstock from kit and one blue one from my stash (older Spellbinders card kits). Adhered on card front and added string using fine tip black pen.

Card 2:

Assembled the ephemera pieces using flat tape and foam dots from the kit. Stamped sentiment as well as the sparkle design on glasses using ColorBox Archival Dye Ink Glacier Lake.

Card 3:

Adhered the stocking stuffers behind each stocking using flat tape from the kit and foam mounted them on the card. Stamped sentiment using Gina K Amalgam Black ink and my trusted MISTI.

Card 4:

Again, love the colors in here. Simply layered a couple patterned paper pieces from the kit while separating them with gold glitter tape (older Spellbinders kits). Also added a die cut element on top of one of the ephemera ornaments. Finished off with the bow ephemera piece.

Card 5:

Just two patterned paper panels separated by a thin stripe of gold mirrored cardstock. Adhered several gold sentiment stickers and star stickers on top.

Card 6:

Kinda collaged several chipboard stickers together along with a couple ephemera pieces and stamped the sparkle image three times using ColorBox Archival Dye Ink Glacier Lake.

Card 7:

Die cut a panel using Spellbinders Hemstitch rectangle dies and assembled a flower just like in card 1. Then I built a shaker element using a chipboard sticker, piece of packaging material and a piece of patterned paper for backing. I added chunky glitter pieces inside this shaker. To complete the sentiment I added an ephemera piece saying “merry” above the word “Christmas”. Finally a sprinkling of flat backed gems in matching colors and this card was done.

Card 8:

Stamped the tree images from stamp set on the border of a panel using different colors from Hero Arts Tropical Waters Bold Ink Cubes. Gold heat embossed three sentiments “seasons greetings”, “just for you”, “with a little sparkle and a lot of shine”. Did the same with the sparkle image in several places. Added a gold glitter tape on the inside edge and a couple chipboard stickers to finish it off. I mainly added the gold tape mainly to hide the fact that I had missed scoring the cardbase at the exact center :p but love how it turned it. :)

Card 9:

It’s a flip card and I made the main structure using Dec 2018 Large die of the month Dies from Spellbinders. So quick and easy! For the die cut sentiment on the front I used the die from Dec 2018 Small die of the month Dies from Spellbinders. These coordinate perfectly. On the inside, I used a chipboard sticker that says “Joy Peace Love”. Again for embellishing I added a flower and a couple chipboard stickers.

Card 10:

Collaged the red flower & leaves ephemera pieces. Had leftover tiny flower centers, so added those to the middle of these flowers. Gold heat embossed the sentiment and added sparkle image in several places using Golden Glitz Tsukineko Delicata ink.

That’s it. As you can tell, I had way too much fun with this kit :) It is still available so go grab it while you can. You won’t regret it.
