Spellbinders January 19th Clubs Blog Hop + Giveaway!

Hello, crafty friends!
I'm happy and honoured to be joining Spellbinders for the January 2022 Clubs Inspiration Blog Hop today. Spellbinders is celebrating all their Club Kits in shop for January 2023.

If you arrived here from the wonderful, Michelle Short's Blog, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Spellbinders Blog. We've got tons of inspiration and giveaways for you on the hop today, so keep reading till the end of this post for more information.

I am excited to share with you a thank-you card I created using the Stitching Die Club of the Month - Nested Stitched Burst from Spellbinders. Spellbinders has just introduced this NEW Club from this month, and it is such a beautiful one. 

 Join the NEW Stitching Die Club of the Month and receive an expertly designed die set each month, complete with inspiration. 

To create the card, I used three different shades of orange floss from the DMC Color Essentials Floss Bundle Warm 10-Pack. I began by die-cutting the main panel using a piece of Cream Cardstock. This gave me a base with a perforated grid to do my stitching.

Next, I cut out the center panel, which is also a part of this die and added some stitching using a light coloured thread. To add some extra detail, I added some Gold Pearls to accentuate the design. I then die-cut two other circles from this die set and layered them using some foam tape.

This month also features an optional à la carte clear stamp set that coordinates with the Stitching Die Club of the Month called the Sentimental Greetings Clear Stamp. I used a sentiment from this set and stamped it in the center of the circle die-cut piece.

Finally, once I had stamped and heat embossed my sentiment using Clear Embossing Powder, I cut out some flowers and leaves using the Be Bold Blooms Etched Dies from the Be Bold Collection and I Dance Etched Dies.  Then, I colored my florals using some OLO Coral Tones Alcohol Markers Set and the leaves using the OLO Forest Alcohol Markers. I assembled the pieces on to my card panel using foam tape. Then, to complete, I mounted my card panel to an A2 top-folding card base using tape runner.

To celebrate this release, Spellbinders are giving away a $25 gift certificate to 3 lucky blog readers – selected from the comments on our blog. Giveaway closes on Sunday, January 22nd, 11:59 pm MST.
