Hello Crafty Friends, today I’m sharing an idea to combine elements from 3 different Spellbinders May kits (2022) with a couple of newly released products.
By mixing and matching supplies we can always get the maximum creative benefit.
As I still have Ukraine in my heart, I chose yellow and blue colours to give life to these two slimline cards and I added gold accents and Aura gems.
So I thought that could be fun to mix letter dies from different kits to build new words but to complete the word “Lovely” I defo needed the letter “V”.
To make these cards I used the following main supplies:
- Large Die of the Month (the large letter “Y’ )
- Small Die ( the medium size letters H, e, l, o.)
- Embossing Folder ( to emboss the oversized butterfly in the background
- The Butterfly Card Creator ( oversized butterfly in the background)
- The Glimmer of the month ( Medium size hot foiled and die-cut butterfly in one of the cards)
- Card Kit of the Month ( stamped sentiment on one of the cards)
- Layered Cherry Blossoms die set (Flowers and leaves on both cards)
- Layered Lilies die set ( I used the leaves only for the card with the word lovely)
- Stitched V die ( to complete the word “Lovely”. This die will be released on May 14th)
- Stitched Alphabet Glimmer Descriptors Hot Foil Plates ( the hot foiled words “YOU ARE” in the “You Are Lovely Card”)
- Aura gems.
** All supplies used are listed at the bottom of this post. All the fonts in green are clickable links.
LARGE DIE May 2022
- The Large Die of the month is called “Stitched For You “
- Contains 42 cutting dies.
- Includes fonts and backing plates to die cut the following words: Hello, Thank, Happy, Birthday, Me, To, From, You.
- The dies that cut the letters “y”, “o”, “u”, are huge and they are the only dies in the set that will allow you to apply stitches. The other words are complementary and also stand alone.
- The word “YOU” complete with the backing plate measures 4-1/2″ x 2-3/4″ inches.
Small Die MAy 2022
- The Small Die of the Month is called “”Stitched Hello”
- It includes 6 cutting dies.
- 5 solid letters (H, E, L, L, O) so you get 2 letters “L” for easy and quick die-cutting.
- 1 stitching backing panel that will cut a pattern to apply stitches into that piece. ( I did not use the background panel today).
embossing folder MAY 2022
- The ” Embossing Folder of the month” is called the “Faux Stitch embossing folder”
- This is a large embossing folder. It measures 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ inches.
I used the 2 oversized butterfly dies from The Butterfly card Creator to die-cut smooth white cardstock.
Next, I glued it over the white large butterfly (5×7 inches) and cut it in half to make the two cards in the pictures.
Glimmer April 2022
- The Glimmer of the month is called “Glimmer Butterflies”
- It includes 10 glimmer plates and 19 cutting dies.
- The dies in this kit stand alone.
- This set will also allow you to apply stitches.
Small Die and Card Kit Bonus Project
I love doing partial die-cutting so I wanted to share this extra idea with you.
This bonus project was made using dies from “Stitched Hello” – the Small Die of the Month.
I simply create an extra flap for this box and I partially die cut it using the letter dies.
Then, I used the flowers from the stamp set included in the Card Kit of the Month to do tone on tone stamping on the piece to make the box.
To decorate, I also used stickers and die-cut shapes from the Card Kit of the Month.
Below is another idea to do partial die-cutting with the letter dies… This is super quick and easy.
The hot foiled sentiment was made using a plate from the Glimmer of the month.
Card Kit May 2022
The Card Kit of the Month is called “Koala Smiles” and it includes:
- Die set – 11 cutting dies
- 6×4 stamp set.
- 6×6 inches paper pad ( 40 sheets – 20 designs, 2 sheets each design).
- Die-cut shapes
- puffy Sentiments
- Chipboard embellishments
- Card bases and envelopes.
I made 2 easy projects using the Die-cut shapes.
