Happy we’re half-way there day! Although this time of year I’d be ok with the weeks going a little slower – so much to get done, sigh. I’m back today with part 2 of the Spellbinders November Card Kit. Here’s what I came up with:
and here are your close-ups:
I was tempted to go all out and cover this snow globe with glossy accents or acetate or half of a globe Christmas ornament but reigned myself in…less usually is more 🙂
This is my favorite card from all 10 – I love Rudolph and his Mrs.
This was super simple and quick. I love that they include 2 of every ephemera – sometimes you love a piece so much it’s hard to choose what to use it on!
What can I say…I’m feeling the pink and the red this season. I could’ve used about 50 of that cocoa mug die cut.
Another quick and easy card. The glossy accents really make those berries pop!
Thanks so much for checking out my cards today – hope I was able to give you some holiday inspiration! xoxo, Sarah
Today I’ve got some cards and a treat box to share with you that I made using the Spellbinders November Large Die Kit. I’m absolutely loving these kits – so much fun and an amazing way to build my die stash. I really can’t say enough about how great of a deal I think this is, the amount of items you get for the price is astounding. Here is the video of what I came up with:
Here are some still shots of the finished cards and box:
Simple and clean – my favorite kind of cards. I LOVE that warm wishes sentiment, it’s such a pretty script.
Again I’m using the Mama Elephant Merry Greetings and Jingle Greetings stamp sets.
This card is my favorite – I love the shape of those tags, they make such a pretty pattern.
I used some green ink for the sentiment to echo the green from the front and finished off this inside panel with a thin stripe of the pink paper.
What a fun shaker to make! I don’t have a lot of dies that have these solid shapes and the inserts to match, so it’s new to me to use the insert and get so much detail on a cut-out window.
You’re going to see these sentiment stamp sets a lot this season!
These boxes are really cute and easy to put together – I hope my instructions were at least a little helpful.
Here you can see the details of how I cut out off/around that outside red border.
These would make a great advent calendar and I’m planning to make some as some favor boxes for each place setting at our family Christmas dinner this year.
The detail of all those tiny dots around the border is really pretty. If any get stuck, you can use a needle tip to poke them out.
As always thanks for stopping by to check out my work – I hope I was able to give you some inspiration for your own holiday merry making! xoxo, Sarah
Well…it’s 65 degrees in Baltimore today, but I’ve been working away on some Christmas goodness, so let’s get a running start on the holiday and we’ll just agree to pretend snow is falling outside the window! Today I’ve got 4 cards for you using the Spellbinders November 2018 Small Die Kit – here’s what I came up with:
Here are some stills of the finished cards:
I really enjoyed this die set, I think the sprigs are probably my favorite piece because you can use them for mistletoe, holly and they’d be great to stick with some flowers too.
I’ve been wanting to use this sentiment and this card was the perfect fit.
This deer is gorgeous, but oh the detail and it did not disappoint! A friend was looking at it this weekend and oohed and ahhed over it so it will probably be sent for her Christmas card this year.
This card is my favorite of the batch. I love how simple it is. The green and red are so bright and I’ve never been a big mirrored cardstock person but I really like the gold so I think I need to start working with that more often.
These sentiments are so great – I use these stamp sets for SO MANY cards over the holiday season.
Do any of you send new year’s cards? Just curious if this is a thing that I’m unaware of. I would probably use this on a scrapbook or journal layout so I’m thinking that’s why it was included. Or I guess you could put Merry Christmas on the front and Happy New Year on the inside.
I am in LOVE with this gold washi – it is soooo shiny and perfect. (and we’re getting two more colors in the kit this month too!!)
Thanks so much for stopping by today – more Christmass goodness coming soon. xoxo, Sarah
I’ve been itching to get this video out and things just continued to prevent it but at last, I’m sharing my first (of many) Spellbinders videos with you. Today I’ve got 4 cards using the small die kit of the month from October. I am still amazed at the amount of dies included in this kit. Here is a look at what I came up with:
Here are some close ups of the finished cards:
As I mentioned in the video this was my take on the sample card instructions they provided. I love that they include this with the dies to get you started and think it turned out really cute.
Rather than pull out my stamps, I continued with the Tim Holtz small talk stickers for the inside sentiment.
I knew I wanted to create a shaker as soon as I saw this die. It was a little more work since the sides of the die cut are very narrow, but well worth it when looking at the finished result.
This SSS Thankful Heart stamp set is so beautiful – the lettering is so classy and it really could carry a card all by itself.
I trimmed the smaller sentiment out of the wishbone so I could use it by itself and then worked it in around the Happy Thanksgiving sentiment. Remember stamps and dies are just a jumping off point – don’t be afraid to change them to make them work for what you need.
Apple of my Eye is another great SSS stamp set – it’s super fun and cute.
I let this gorgeous paper shine and just trimmed it out and added a popped up wishbone on top. I did trim out the sentiment from a second gray wishbone and add that on top of this white one. Again, make your stamps and dies work for you!
Such a pretty sentiment. I’ll have a full video using this stamp set for you very soon!
Thanks for stopping by today – I’ve got a few more fall cards coming up and then it’s on to the Christmas Series. xoxo, Sarah
