Hello Spellbinders’ fans! Thank you so much for joining us this week as we host our first Card Making Challenge! We asked a few of our designers and spellbloggers to share their take on one of our cards kits – December 2016 Card Kit of the Month and we are excited to show you what they all made!
Hi everybody! This is Debi Adams, Creative & Licensed Designer at Spellbinders. As you know by now, this week we are showcasing the different projects you can make from our December Card Kit of the Month. Honestly, I love trying to find new ways to make unique cards from these fun embellishments. The possibilities are endless.
Project Details – Love
This elegant card was created by incorporating gold paper into the design. I cut out butterflies from the blue paper and placed the negative images on top of the gold paper and adhered it using foam dots to the card base. I then went back in and adhered the butterflies and added the sentiment.
Project Details – Free Spirit
Free Spirit is a clustering of several embellishments with some touches of gold. Not nearly as elegant as the first card but very trendy nonetheless. It also shows a great way to use up those scrap pieces of paper!
Project Details – Happy
This “happy” card incorporates the tag and flowers from my kit.
Project Details – Deer
Here I created included the deer head into the card. The ribbon added a feminine touch. Whenever making a card, I always have a background, a main feature and a sentiment. All of this is covered in this card.
Project Details – Be Brave
Although I could have created a card with more of the embellishments in the kit, I wanted to show you how easy it is to add other outside dies to the base. The bear and pennant are from my Bear Scout die set.
Project Details – Avocado Love
And here I added another outside die set of mine – The Pearfect Avocado. I think this kit lends itself to many other complimentary dies. I have to say I am in love with the leaf die. Did you notice that I created a background with the leaves, added the main feature, namely the flowers, butterfly and pear, and finished it off with a sentiment? All three card making basics were incorporated.
Well, what do you think? Enough ideas? I hope you will try your hand at making with this kit. I’m certain you can create a variety of cards for many occasions with just a little creativity. Here’s a shot of all the cards I made this week.
