The Spellbinders Club Kits for June are now available!. Here are my cards - this month's overall theme is based on the ocean.
The 3D embossing folder of the month is called Scattered Shells.
supplies: kraft, aqua, and white cardstock, Scattered Shells 3D embossing folder, white pigment ink, a retired sentiment
All of Spellbinder's embossing folders are a nice big 5 3/4" X 8 3/4" in size, so you can make a full-size slimline with any of them. I chose to do so this time because I wanted you to see as many of the details as I could get onto my card! I simply embossed a large kraft panel in this folder, then gently rubbed on white pigment ink to bring out the details for you.
The regular embossing folder of the month is called Splish Splash, and I adore this design! I'm sure you'll be seeing it appearing here lots! I made it into a birthday card, and embellished it with a butterfly.
supplies: white and aqua cardstock, Splish Splash embossing folder, white pigment ink, Hemstitch Rectangle die, Lots of Wishing You stamps and matching dies, butterfly and flower dies from a former card kit.
Here is the Glimmer Kit: Sending Waves. It comes with 2 different wave designs to foil, dies to cut them out, and a sentiment. There's also an add-on kit with 4 more sentiments that can be foiled, with matching shadow dies. This month the kit comes with Skybright glimmer foil, a pale, silvery blue color.
supplies: black, white, and 3 shades of aqua cardstock, Sending Waves glimmer plates, foiled sentiment from Ocean Wishes Sentiments Add-On hot foil plate set, Skybright glimmer foil, whale from Whale in a Bottle (this month's Large Die of the Month Club Kit), aqua jewels
Next is the Large Dies of the Month kit: Whale in a Bottle! It has 20 different dies! How fun to make a shaped card!
supplies: white, shades of grey, shades of blue and green, shades of brown cardstock, Whale in a Bottle dies
Just look at all the details we have to make an underwater scene! And the bottle, cork and tag can be used for other projects, too.
The Small Dies of the Month are called Dancin' Octopus & Friends! The Octopus and little squid have a hinge apparatus so that when the card is tilted, their legs swing back and forth!
supplies: various colors of cardstock, Dancin' Octopus & Friends dies, sentiment from the Ocean Wishes Sentiments add-on Glimmer sentiments, Teal glimmer foil
There are 12 dies in this set - I love the seaweed and starfish they included! The sentiment is one from the Glimmer add-on sentiment kit.
And lastly, here's my card using the Stitching Dies of the Month: Stitched Shell Card Front.
supplies: cream, pale pink, and aqua cardstock, Stitched Shell Card Front dies, pink and cream embroidery floss, 3 strands, foiled sentiment from Sending Waves glimmer kit, Teal glimmer foil, pearls
I was inspired by the shells we find on the Florida Gulf Coast where we sometimes winter. There are lots of shells on the beaches, and my favorites are the creamy scallop shells with pink markings on them. So I cut 4 cream shells and stitched them with pink floss, and 3 pink shells and stitched them with cream floss for my card. My sentiment is part of this month's Glimmer of the Month kit, foiled in Teal glimmer foil.
