Thank You - Stretch your Dies | Spellbinders September Kits Blog Hop

Hello Friends! 
It’s that time of the month when we celebrate all of the amazing Spellbinders releases with a hop, and I am back with another diamond wreath using the Small Die of the Month kit. This one may be my favorite of all! You can read all about how I put this card together below, or simply scroll to the bottom for the chance to win a fabulous prize! Just don't forget to comment if you want to enter ;)


This little card really takes advantage of the SDOM kit versatility, in which I used the center diamond (the left-over bit after die-cutting the fancy border), to mask out a white center to the card. I added warm, Autumn hues to the base, with my ink blending brushes. I then went a little wild with spatters :)


Peeling back the mask, leaves the perfect little space to adhere the foliage border. If you find that you struggle with perfectly aligning thin dies like this, masking as a first step is a great way to ensure your positioning goes smoothly. 


I used the word dies in the kit to cut out the sentiment, and the floral blooms are all from TSM's Mother's Day Blooms and Bunches of Love


I don't know about you, but all this texture makes my heart smile :)
And it's pretty clear I'm smitten with these dies...But tell me, how have you used this kit?
Would love to see!

  18. Such a beautiful card! I love the color and splatters of the background. The frame is so pretty, and the flowers you added so lovely!I've never purchased a kit, but have lots of stamps, dies,papers, stickers,etc. It always takes me a while to get everything together, so I can really see how the kits would stream line this part of card making.
