Clear Stamp of the Month | Spellbinders

Hello, friends!

Today I am excited to share something brand new with all of you: the Spellbinders Clear Stamp of the Month Club! I’ve always been a huge fan of the Spellbinders Card and Die Clubs, so I am thrilled to be sharing this new release! 
If you are looking to add new stamps to your stash or just want to treat yourself, this is the set for you!

The Clear Stamp of the Month Club will be available starting today, November 1st! The clear stamp sets will also be available as part of the Value Clubs. More details on Club pricing and new (cheaper!) shipping rates for international customers can be found on the Spellbinders website. So be sure to check it out!
Today, I’ll be sharing two cards that I created with this set, so let’s dive right in!

For my first card, I wanted a design that was reminiscent of a beautiful snowy day scene. First, I created the background by cutting a piece of white heavyweight cardstock to a size slightly smaller than an A2. I then ink blended the background using a light blue ink with a gradient effect starting from the top and leaving the bottom portion white to give the appearance of snow.  Once the ink was dry, I added small amounts of glue to adhere chunky clear glitter for an added icy sparkle.
Next, I used the smaller stamps from the ‘Christmas Gem’ set and heat embossed them to frame the main gem image. For this, I used a sparkly silver embossing powder. I set that aside and next created the snowflakes using the snowflake die from the ‘Deck the Halls’ etched die set. I die cut this multiple times in silver and white glitter paper.

Next (my favorite part!) I stamped the gem image onto white cardstock using alcohol marker friendly ink. Once stamped, I used Copic markers to color the image. Once finished, I heat embossed the sentiment onto the center of the gem using silver embossing powder. I then fussy cut around the entire stamped image.

Once all of the coloring was done, it was time to create the base panel. For this, I used white heavyweight cardstock, cutting it down to an A2 size then using a ‘Ripple’ embossing folder to add a little more dimension.

Finally, time to assemble my card! I adhered the background to the embossed base using liquid glue. I then added the cut image, adhering it with foam tape. Lastly, I added all of the snowflakes, layering them on and around the gem.

For the second card, I used a dark red cardstock and die cut it using the ‘Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangles’ etched die. I repeated the same steps as my first card, except this time I chose gold embossing powder to create the frame around the gem. For the base, I cut down a piece of A2 cardstock in white and adhered it to my background. Next I adhered the image using foam tape and then added gold bobbles to finish the card!

As you can see, the same stamp set can be used in various ways with different colors and backgrounds. I hope you are inspired by my cards today and check out the new Club Kit from Spellbinders!

  1. Gorgeous cards, Dee!! What are those little tiny bubble or salt thingies on the blue background? Is that from the embossing folder? Can you share how you did that? That tiny little detail is the cutest!!
