Two Looks One Diecut Set featuring Spellbinders

Spellbinders provided some of the supplies in exchange for sharing a project.

Hello crafty friends! Today I'm sharing two cards created with Spellbinders products. Spellbinders offered me a chance to work with their October Large Die of the Month and since I know they make high quality dies that I enjoy I accepted. I was so excited to see this fun pick up truck when it arrived. I love that it can make cards for all seasons and that it has sentiments included. For more details check out the video below:


After making the first fall card I was having too much fun to stop so I decided to make another card but in a completely different style. This time I went with pink and shiny. The Kat Scrappiness sequins and jewels added the perfect finishing touches. Use the code Jess10 to save at Kat Scrappiness.

Mermaid Cards with Spellbinders

Spellbinders provided some of the supplies in exchange for sharing a project.

Hello crafty friends! Today I'm sharing four cards created with Spellbinders products. Spellbinders offered me a chance to work with their new Special Moments collection and I love the beautiful intricate dies so I was excited to play with them. For more details check out the video below: 



I love how the intricate dies lend themselves to clean and simple cards and I enjoyed creating with the Honey Bee stamps because they were the perfect amount of pretty to compliment the dies. The intricate floral and vine diecut made such a pretty card with minimal effort and I love how the Kat Scrappiness jewels added a great finishing touch.

Diecut Backgrounds featuring Spellbinders

Spellbinders provided some of the supplies in exchange for sharing a project.

Hello crafty friends! Today I'm sharing two cards created with Spellbinders products. A few months ago I got an amazing deal on the Spellbinders Kaleidoscope background dies and love how they can add a lot of interest to a card with little effort. In today's cards I created two very different backgrounds to create two very similar cards. For more details check out the video below: 


I also use the Spellbinders Grateful for You stamp and diecut set. The images in the set are cute but easy to color and since it comes with the coordinating dies it was really easy to finish off the cards.

Cards with the Spellbinders July 2018 Card Kit by Jess Crafts
Disclosure: I was given this kit free to work with and share. Affiliate links are used.

Hello crafty friends! Today I am here with the July 2018 Spellbinders Card Kit. I found the contents adorable and I was excited to work with it. I have a video sharing some inspiration from the kit as well as more information under the video.


Today I am sharing 10 cards with the kit. I stuck almost exclusively to the kit contents except for using a black pen, die cut machine, and a paper trimmer. What is awesome about this kit is that it comes with adhesive and card bases so it is a very inclusive kit that will work well for crafting on the go or for someone who hasn't built up a large stash yet. The cards and envelopes also mean that you can send the cards right away. All cards are A2. Keep scrolling to see pictures of different designs.
