Spellbinders July Club Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to Spellbinders July Club Blog Hop. This month's club kits are full of Christmas cheers and we're excited to have you joining us.

I always love making Christmas cards and all the club kits really help in making it more fun in creating. Here's the card I made for this hop:

I started by using the July 3D Embossing folder as I just love the design on this gorgeous folder. Once the embossing done, I run a brayer on white ink pad and rolled the brayer over the embossed area to make them popped a bit more. I figure it kind of like snow dust.

Next, I die cut some pieces from Spellbinders' July Large Die of The Month Set and adhere it to the card. Finish the card by adding hot foiled sentiment from Mini Christmas Sentiment set. Pretty quick and easy card all in all.

Now, besides all the inspirations, a hop would be more fun with a giveaway, right? Here's the giveaway detail.

The Ton Summer Release

 Hi there creative peeps. Today we're celebrating The Ton summer release and I am for one excited for it as they're a good one. 

My 1st card is featuring several of the new sets from this release. The Mid Rose StencilMid Rose Coordinating Die, Rose Leaves Stencil, Rose Leaves Coordinating Die, Script Notes set & Script Notes die.

For the rose I used Hollywood Star & Grand Fuchsia and for  the leaves I used Soft Garden & Deep Emerald.When adhering the rose, I actually curved the middle part and used thicker foam adhesive on the middle and thinner foam adhesive on the edge. I feel like this give better dimension to the rose. Finished by adding sentiment & some sequins.

The next card is showcasing Jumbo Rose Stencil.

For this card I used Bright Emerald, Caribbean Turquoise and Periwinkle. Once I finished stenciling in the color, I splatter some blue watercolor ink on the panel. Let dry and adhere to card base. Finished by adding sentiment and some mix size dew drops.

Last but not least, am showcasing Floral Notes Stamp.

I first stamped the sentiment and then using post it note as masking to create the border and fill in the opening with Copic marker. Once I am done with it, I feel like the card need a bit more dimension. So, I stamped the image again, colored it and then fussy cut each letter and adhere it to the card with foam adhesive. Finished by adding some enamel drops.

I hope you enjoy The Ton summer release. The team been working hard to create some inspiration using the new release sets. Please check out what my teammates has created. And, thank you so much for visiting here.

Christmas In July

Hi dear friends. How is it possible that we're already in July? June flew by just like that. Well, with new month, it's time to share the latest Spellbinders' club kits. I have several card to share. Let's start with my favorite from this month, the Spellbinder's June Glimmer Club kit.

I love making shaker card, and this June glimmer set is perfect for it. I did the hot foil and then die cut the opening to create the shaker card. This hot foil set is simply beautiful that I decided to make another card.

For my 3rd card, I am showcasing July 3D Embossing folder.

I  have to say that every time I used the 3D embossing folder, I am amazed by the detail and how impressive they look. On my card, I simply blended some darker green ink to the embossed part for a bit of color gradient and then added some glitter enamel to the dots.

Next, is this fun gnome card using Spellbinders' July Large Die of The Month Set. This card definitely has lots of texture. I added glitter enamel dots as well as glossy accent to make the ornament shiny.

My next card featuring Spellbinders' July Stitching Die Club kit paired with sentiment from Mini Christmas Sentiment set. 

Last but not least is my card featuring Spellbinders July Embossing Club Kit. This is my only non Christmas card. Hah.... I just started playing and coloring it and next thing I know I die cut some flower from last year Spellbinders' October Small Die of The Month. I completely forgot about the Christmas theme. Well, the good thing it showed how versatile this set is. You could use it for any occasions.

Phew..., I can't remember the last time I am posting this many cards in 1 post. I hope you enjoy this post and I hope my post inspire you to get creative. Have a happy day, friends.

Thank You Pineapple
