Spellbinders May 2023 Clear Stamp & Die of the Month!

Tuesday, May 2, 2023

New month, new Clear Stamp and Die of the Month Kit! I have two card ideas using the new stamp set and its coordinating die - one idea using Ohuhu Art Markers to color in the image and the other using emboss resist with Distress Oxide Inks. You'll have to check out my video down below and let me know which one you like more! I think I like my emboss resist card most (the one on the right) but mostly because it took me a while to color in all of those small details.

My favorite part about this stamp set is that the stamp itself is one, big stamp, but the die set allow syou to cut out different elements and even separate the large image into two separate pieces. I stamped my images twice for each type of design so I could cut out the full panels as well as the smaller details in the die set - like the cupcake, gift, hats and small flowers. This allows me to add dimension by popping up the images or even use them separate on another card.

For my first card, I partnered it with an embossing folder as the stamp is busy on it's own, I wanted to add a sublte background with texture. For my second card, I had the urge to add some gold and used my Glimmer Hot Foil system to create a border to go around my images. My frame is a retired plate (sorry!) but it's a past kit so you just might have it in your stash. I linked an alternate down below that you could use if you like the idea!

I hope this motivates you so you're excited to use your kit when it arrives in the next few days. Check back later this month when I receive my own Hot Foil Kit of the Month and pair them together!
