Spellbinders May Club Kits Blog Hop

 Hello friends!

๐Ÿ‘‰ For Altenew Craft Your Life "Florescence" Blog hop, please click here or scroll down. 

I am super excited to be part of the Spellbinders May Club Kit Blog Hop.

1 Featured products: stamp set, paper pad and embellishments from May Monthly Card Kit

hello lovely
This stamp set from the "Koala Smile" is absolutely gorgeous. It has such a delicate and beautiful feel. So, I decided to white embossed the image on vellum. 
hello lovely -001

I colored the backside of the vellum and the colors really popped behind the vellum. To make the card more interesting, I stamped the sentiment around the white card base.

The ephemera "Hello Lovely" from the card kit provide the sweet touch.

2 Featured products: Clear Stamp and Coordinating Die

in stitches

 This card looks fun and requires no stitching and threading. stitches -001

I chose two main colors and started stamping the entire background. I die cut and added sentiment and thread around the "Cardboard Floss Bobbins" (I had to look that up to see what it's called). I then looped two colors of thread and popped it up. How cool is that!?


 3 Featured products: Embossing Folder of the Month

hi -001

 This embossing folder can be used as a guide for stitching. I have yet to try that. However, I find it beautiful just to add colors over it. 
hi -002

I used Distress Oxide (Mustard Seed, Tattered Rose and Peacock Feather) for the shades and colors.

 The ephemera made this deign extra dreamy, don't you think?

 Honestly, these kits are amazing to get your creativity going. I know that once I made a few, I can't stop.... the kit pretty much made itself!
