Fall Gnomes Card - Spellbinders Clear Stamp and Die Set


Who doesn't LOVE Fall Gnomes? 

Did you know Spellbinders has a monthly Clear Stamp & Die of the Month Club for quick card and project creativity?  This month's "Fall Gnomes" Clear Stamp Set and Coordinating Die set is perfect for making super adorable cards perfectly customized for the season.  

Here's the image of the clear stamp and die set for the month of September: 

The secret to perfect stamping starts with a stamping platform.  My favorite is 
My Sweet Petunia Mini Misti - Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented.  Why do you need a stamping platform?  Because you can keep stamping an image until it's absolutely perfect.  I often need to stamp an image a few times to get complete coverage.  The MISTI helps provide perfection. 

I used Ranger Archival Ink Pad Jet Black because it doesn't bleed when I use water color pencils to color the images. 
Remember,  Spellbinders monthly club dies are uniquely designed for Spellbinders and only found in their store.   You can find past club kits still available for purchase here while supplies last.

Create a shaker card - Instructions
This first card was turned into a shaker card with the following instructions: 

Step 1.  Glue three chipboard rings together for the base and adhere to patterned paper for background.
Step 2. Fill with sequins.  I used sequins from a prior Spellbinders Card Kit.   
Step 3. Using a 4th chipboard ring for the top of the shaker, flip over, peel off the adhesive and secure a piece of tulle/ netting for the shaker window. 

Did you know you can purchase these pieces from this month's kit separately?

Fall Pumpkin Card - Spellbinders Becca Feeken


Harvest Time is Here! Let's be Thankful

Today's card features Spellbinders Seasonal Motif Labels from Becca Feeken  and I'm very thankful for the gorgeous autumn theme accents included in the die set.  

Below is an image of the die set: 

Are tiny items, pieces and dies difficult to pick up? 
Do you lose your small dies?  
It's time for my favorite product Shout Out 

I have to give a shout out to my ALL TIME FAVORITE products I like to use when I am crafting with tiny pieces and small dies.   Today I'm featuring the  Crystal Ninja - Crystal Katana Mixed Media Pick Up Tool and Spellbinders (Magnetic ) Tool and Accessories Main Attraction.
  • Do you lose dies right ON YOUR CRAFTING TABLE?  
  • Do dies disappear just by looking at them?  
  • I can be holding a tiny die, and it's like I'm a magician at a party - poof!  gone.
  • If you drop a die on the floor is it gone forever?  They bounce out of sight as they hit the floor. 
I don't lose dies and die cuts anymore.  The Spellbinders (Magnetic ) Tool and Accessories Main Attraction is definitely worth adding to your Christmas list.  It may be the strangest gift on your list BUT it'll make you smile.   

The Crystal Ninja - Crystal Katana Mixed Media Pick Up Tool helps pick up and place the smallest pieces, die cuts, gems, crystals for perfect placement on your project.  

Think autumn is all this die set has to offer?  Nope.  Use it through the year for a variety of celebrations.  I made a Christmas holiday shaker using the die set shape.  You can check the original blog post here to see how I made the shaker.
