Hello, friends! It’s the 6th of the month, and that means the Spellbinders Monthly Clubs are open to new subscribers! You have probably already been seeing inspiration from the new clubs, and they really are amazing this month! Remember that one of the major benefits of the Spellbinders clubs is that you can cancel at any time and rejoin if/when you want (assuming there is enough inventory when you want to rejoin).
NOTE: If you are in the UK, you can order monthly clubs through the UK website – CLICK HERE.
I already shared this first card on my Instagram page. It features the beautiful Small Die of the Month, which is called “Floral Butterfly Card Front.” Today, I am not only sharing my other cards in this blog post, but I am also sharing them in my very first YouTube video!! This has been a long time coming, and I finally did it! It was a lot of work, and I hope you’ll head over there to check it out. I won’t be going into too much detail about the cards in this post, since everything is explained in the video, but please let me know if you have any questions or comments.

My second card features both the Small Die of the Month and the 3D Embossing Folder of the Month. This month, the folder is called “Spring Burst,” and it is fabulous. I think it’s just a really versatile design and one that can be used all year long. I embossed an alcohol inked panel, and I love the results. YUPO paper is so great with 3D folders. I think I used this technique last month, too, and I’m sure I’ll keep using it. It’s just so fun to sand off the alcohol ink and see the embossed design come to life! And how beautiful is that butterfly from the Small Die kit?? I love it.
My third card also uses both the Small Die of the Month and the 3D Embossing Folder of the Month, but this time I used the debossed side of the card panel. I achieved this look by inking up the raised edges of my embossing folder before sending my card panel through the machine. It gives a really cool letterpress effect.
I hope these cards put a smile on your face today. And if you have time and want to watch my YouTube video, just CLICK HERE. I would appreciate any feedback you have for me over there! I will say that I have an even bigger appreciation for those who put out regular videos. It is a lot of work and takes a lot of time. And I know there’s room for a lot of improvement, since this was my first! Lots of camera issues to work out, etc, etc. It was fun, though. Hope to see you there!
Wishing you all a crafty day,
