Spellbinders | The Best of 2022

LINK TO MY INSTAGRAM

At the end of the year, I enjoy looking back through my projects and this year I decided to write a post about my most popular Spellbinders projects. I loved so many of my creations, but these are the crowd favorites for 2022.

Spellbinders Layered Floral Card Creator

This first card was my most popular card on Instagram, was my most “pinned” card on Pinterest and my most read blog post! I used the November Small Die of the Month Club Kit called Layered Floral Card Creator. This set was so popular that it is sold out. Because of this, I suggest that you join the club of your choice as club members are guaranteed to receive each month’s kit. Of course, you can cancel at any time. You can see all the subscription kit options HERE.

If you would like to read my original post, you can find it HERE. I also have four other cards that were very well received in that post.

Christmas card from Spellbinders Winter Tales Collection designed by  Zsoka Marko.  Magical Deer: S4-1215.

My most popular Christmas card was from the Winter Tales Collection that was designed by the talented Zsoka Marko. I was instantly attracted to this die kit called Magical Deer: S4-1215. I love the Nordic look and used Scandanavian red and blue as accent colors to give the neutrals some pop.

You can read my original blog post HERE.

Spelllbinders Fan Motif Embossing Folder

Embossing folders have become so popular, and this Fan Motif was much loved by my readers and followers.

Patchwork Petals Quilt die from Becca Feekens Quilted Ccollection.

Becca Feeken’s Quilted Collection was just released this month but was wildly popular! There are so many possibilities and combinations and I think the dies really speak to papercrafters. On this card, I used the Stained Glass Inlay Technique with the Patchwork Petals Quilt Die Kit: S5-537

You can read my original post and see 3 other cards HERE.

Spellbinders Quilted Heart Valentine

The Blooming Heart kit has been so popular on my blog, Instagram and Pinterest. This kit was so popular that it sold out.

Stitched cards were crazy popular this year and this Stitched Ornament Kit # S4-1231, continues to be pinned and liked.

Susan Tierney-Cockburn's Letter Box from The Winter Garden Collection.

The Winter Garden Collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn was so fun and this  Letter Box is so versatile….you can use the mailbox by itself….add Christamas gifts or letters….or turn it into a birthday card by changing the colors and sentiment.

Spellbinders Stitched Fall Leaves

Here is another very popular stitched kit called Stitched Fall Leaves. The leaves are gorgeous stitched or unstitched.

These tags win the “Most Fun to Create” award. I wanted a vintage shabby chic vibe and used Cathe Holden’s  Christmas Flea Market Finds

Spellbinders Patchwork Petals Quilt Card. S5-537

Patchwork Petals Quilt Cards: S5-537

Becca Feeken has done it again with her Home Sweet Quilt Collection! I had so much fun planning and creating these colorful cards.

For my first card, I wanted a stained glass effect so I used the inlaid die cutting technique.

Achieving a stained glass effect with inlaid die cutting.

My Stained Glass Inlaid Die Cutting Technique

  • I started by cutting my Patchwork Petals (S5-537) frame out of navy cardstock and then die cut 5 more colors (aqua, lime, lavender, pink and orange).
  • I die cut two backgrounds: 5″ x 5 1/2″ and then die cut a square into one of the backgrounds so I could inlay the design.
  • Stamp your sentiment on the panel with the square opening. I used Ranger Denim ink to stamp my Waffle Flowers Rainbow sentiment. I think the sentiment has been discontinued, but it is a set I still love using.
  • Glue the background with the square opening and sentiment onto the second background.
  • Inset/glue the navy frame into the square opening. I used liquid glue.
  • Inset/glue each piece of the quilt.
  • Using craft foam, glue your card panel to a 5 1/2″ x 6″ card base.

I had lots of extra pieces left over so I created a bright sympathy card by die cutting a white panel (frame and background) and then using three colors from my leftover pieces.

Die cut Sympathy Card with Spelllbinders Layered Windmill Quilt: S5-545

I added a hot foil sentiment: Spellbinders Mini Everyday Sentiment (GLP-260) with Pink Foil (GLF-006).

Spellbinders Layered Windmill Quilt Cards: S5-545

Layered Windmill Quilt Cards: S5-545

For the Layered Windmill, I created an Octagon shaped card, again with inlaid diecutting. I followed the same process as in Card #1, but then I trimmed the card’s edges with my paper trimmer so that I had a card with 8 sides.

Spellbinders Layered Windmill Quilt Octagon Cards: S5-545

I made two versions, one is white, blue, lime and orange and the other is blue, lime and white.
