Borders & Sentiments Stamping | Spellbinders Clear Stamp of the Month – May

Happy Monday, my friends! Let’s start the week out right with a little bit of stamping! Spellbinders Clear Stamp of the Month for May is all about stamping sentiments and borders on your cards. This set is packed with unique sentiments, and floral borders. It pairs with the other Club Kits for May; however, I’m not going to use the other clubs to create my card. Some of you may only subscribe to this kit, so I’ll show you how I used this set without the other clubs.

To create this card I used my Misti Stamping Tool. This helped me stamp evenly up and down the card panel. First I stamped out the happy birthday sentiment and then I stamped out the floral stamps by shifting along the edge of the Misti. I created a diamond pattern by using all three of the floral strips. I used Grape Jelly Memento ink to stamp out these florals.

I cut down my stamped panel and glued it onto a piece of Black & White Stripes pattern paper. I then changed my mind on the sentiment that I stamped flat onto the purple panel, and I stamped it again on a piece of dark purple cardstock, heat embossed it with white embossing powder and popped it up on some foam strips.

I used the Simply Perfect Layered Blooms dies to create the flowers on this card.

Below is my process video!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a wonderful week!

Mini Heart Valentine’s Day Cards

Hello!  I wanted to show you the mini cards I created for my kids for Valentine’s Day.  The technique I used to make these hearts is really fun!  I call it paper strips piecing.


I chose some pretty cardstocks that mimic the colors of the Valentine heart candies.  However, this would be a great technique to use up the scrap paper we all have in our stash.


I used a paper trimmer to cut the cardstocks into strips.  I didn’t measure them out; I just cut.  I wanted the strips to be various widths.  I then used a sheet of Stick It adhesive on a thin sheet of typing paper and started putting down the paper strips onto it.  This part was very fun and relaxing to do.


I used a bone folder to press the paper strips into the adhesive and then die cut some hearts.  I love how these turned out!!


The lacy heart die cut I adhered to a bright pink 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 card base and added a sentiment banner over the heart.

For the second card, I cut two more smaller hearts out of the largest heart and adhered them to a gate-fold card base.

Here is the video tutorial for these cards!  You can watch them here or on my YouTube Channel in HD.  Thanks for stopping by!!  Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!!
