Spellbinders April Card Kit Release & Card Projects |Weekend Fun 2020

Hello everyone! It’s time for Spellbinders’ April card kit! The card kit is called Weekend Fun. It’s a very eclectic kit this time–the elements range from old-fashioned cameos to peaches, bees, and fizzy drinks. You can do so much with this card kit, and they provide you with card-bases, tape, anything you could possibly need to create many gorgeous cards. It’s an all-in-one kit–even envelopes are included!


Card #1: Beautiful Cameo Card

I chose to use the cutting dies first. I love cameos! Look how pretty this silhouette is, and the necklace cutting die just pushes it over the top–so darling! I used a piece of navy blue card stock and one of the floral pattern papers behind my silhouette–the navy paper really makes the silhouette pop! No coloring involved, just cutting dies and paper. The sentiment is from the Die Cut Shapes pack.


Card #2: Everything’s Peachy Card

I really love this bold pattern paper. The green card stock matched it perfectly, so I used two cutting dies to cut out a frame. I surrounded the peach sticker with tiny flower die cut, and I cut up an oval frame die cut to create the leaves for my two flowers. This card was super fast and fun to put together.


Card #3: Hey You Flower Bouquet Card

For this card I used a piece of coral pattern paper to cover my card base. I then added a triangle of purple pattern paper in the corner. I covered my seam with a strip of gold metallic paper. I added on two sticker, some sequins, and this card was done!


Card #4: Old-Fashioned Cameo Card

I wanted to create a cameo card with a very old-fashioned feel to it. This piece of pattern paper did the trick. I also used Spellbinders’ new Hemstitch Rectangle dies to cut out the pattern paper. I love how the pink card stock behind the pattern paper peeks through the stitching! This time for the silhouette, I used the pale pink card stock. I glued on two more die cuts behind it to add a touch of dimension. I love her gold choker necklace!


Card #5: Retro Dog Card

This dog die cut shape is my favorite of them all! Look at his cute little face! I used a very retro-looking piece of pattern paper behind him, and glued on lots of extra little die cut shapes. The sentiment is one of the chipboard sticker.



Card #6: Bee Happy Beehive Card

One of my favorite techniques is to stamp my images on pattern paper and color them in with colored pencils. I used the retro looking paper again for this card. It provided an excellent base color for my beehive and bees. The cutting dies from this kit include dies to cut out this bee as well as some hexagons–I love that! I was too involved in playing with these cute stamps, and I didn’t plan ahead as to where I would put my sentiment. I ended up stamping it on a piece of peach card stock and tucking it under my beehive.

Polychromos Colored Pencils: Cadmium Yellow, Caput Mortuum, Orange Glaze, Light Purple Pink, Light Cobalt Turquoise, Violet


Card #7: Beehive Celebrate like You’re the Queen Card

I love the color combinations on this card. Purple and yellow are complimentary colors, but add in a blue background and you’ve got something really special! I had fun playing with the stamp set again and die cutting the bee and the hexagons. I stamped the images onto a piece of the peach card stock and colored them in with colored pencils.

Polychromos Colored Pencils: Bee Hive – Cadmium Yellow, Light Yellow Ochre, Caput Mortuum, Flowers – Orange Glaze, Light Magenta, Manganese Violet, Crimson, Mauve, Light Purple Pink, Light Cobalt Turquoise


Card #8: Hugs Card

All of the pattern paper from this kit is exquisite! I particularly love this painterly looking pattern. I adhered it to my card base leaving an 1/8 of an inch boarder around the sides. Next I glued on my hugs chipboard sticker–make sure to use glue behind these because the adhesive on the back isn’t very strong. I put two of the same butterfly die cut shapes together with a little bit of foam tape to make is dimensional.


Card #9: Queen Card

For this card I took inspiration from the example page from the kit. I like how they used strips of paper down the side of their card, so I did that on my card. The crown on top of the silhouette’s head is a die cut shape, and I there is a piece of pattern paper that complimented it perfectly. I also cut out the silhouette with gold metallic card stock and staggered it behind the white silhouette to add some shine to the piece.


Card #10: Yay Card

I added lots of my left over strips of card stock on the front of my last card base. It really is a great design to used up these left-over pieces. I glued down the yay chipboard stickers, and then for some reason, I couldn’t stop adding element to this poor card–lol! I really like how it started but not how it ended up. This is one of those–at least I had fun–cards.
