It’s Spellbinders Club Time! April 2024

Cross-stitchers Rejoice! This months theme is stitching! Time for the April 2024 club projects using the Stencil of the Month Club and the Wax Seal of the Month Club, the Clear Stamp and Die of the Month  and the regular Embossing folder Club. If you like ALL of the spellbinders clubs they now have the DELUXE Caboodle Club just for you. Are you ready for the cards?

First I have the Clear Stamp and Die of the Month  and the regular Embossing folder Club.

Next up is the the Clear Stamp and Die of the Month and the regular Embossing folder Club again. I paired it with a frame from die cut from the Essential Diamonds Etched Dies. The pink glitter paper is  Your Paper Insider.

You can find those flowers and leaves in the Club Blooms Large Die from Jan 2023.

Next up is the Stencil of the Month Club and the Clear Stamp and Die of the Month. Not sure about this color combo but its bright and cheerful.

Finally I have 2  Wax Seal of the Month Club cards. Clean and simple for this one.

I actually stamped on the striped paper (PAPER ROSE collection) with the  Best Wishes on Your Birthday Glimmer Hot Foil Plate. I taped the plate to my Misti and kept inking until I got it dark enough (at least 10 times) It would have been much easier to glimmer it in black foil.

This wax seal card is paired with the Heartfelt Thanks & Scallops Etched Dies for a simple note card.

Check out all the cute clubs this month:

NEW: Mirrored Arch Blooms Press Plate from Spellbinders

There is a new press plate collection over at Spellbinders for the Betterpress system. This is a fantastic collection with a little bit of everything – an embossing folder, a die set, and a few BetterPress plates (and remember, if you don’t have the BetterPress system, you can just get the BetterPress plates and use them in you Glimmer machine).

This is the Mirrored Arch Blooms Plate. I pressed it and colored in with  OLO Pink tones Alcohol Markers. 

I also pressed the Sentiment on the die cut Notched Corner Frames Etched Dies. I then embossed it with the die one size smaller. Instructions for how to emboss with your dies are right on you platinum die cutting platform.

Happy Betterpressing!!!


If you like bigger sentiments and fancy fonts on cards then this is the collection for you. Master Calligrapher Paul Antonio is back with his amazing calligraphy designs! Lets get to the cards!

Both cards today feature the Copperplate Miss You Press Plate. I used the glimmer Hot foil system to foil them in gold foil. Remember you can use all these wonderful letterpress plates in your Glimmer Hot foil system.

Hello friends! ! Creating a beautiful Celebration card just got easier! Why? because there are new Betterpress plates at Spellbinders. Its the

This is the new Celebrate Flowers Registration Press Plate. I paired it with the Heartfelt Thanks & Scallops Etched Dies for a simple celebration card.

You can use the press plate as or if you’re celebrating a birthday, Mother’s day, graduation or any other special event, there are endless possibilities for customization. Just add a small sentiment in the middle of the big letters like I did. The Let’s Celebrate Sentiments Press Plate & Die Set are coordinating sentiments. Used a sentiment from my collection.

The Celebrate Flowers Registration Press Plate (and all Betterpress plates) double as glimmer hot foil plates too! I decided to hot foil only the flowers. If you use the clear guide that comes with the plate, gridlines on each platform and some washi tape its pretty easy to line them up. I recommend hot foiling the flowers first.

March 2024 Spellbinders Clubs

Today I’m sharing my March 2024 club projects using the Stencil of the Month Club and the Wax Seal of the Month Club, the Clear Stamp and Die of the Month  and the regular Embossing folder Club. If you like ALL of the spellbinders clubs they now have the DELUXE Caboodle Club just for you. Are you ready for the cards?

GNOMES! all the gnomes!

The embossing folder club this month coordinates with the stencil of the month. I stenciled 1st, then carefully lined it up and embossed. Check out my reel here:

Welcome back to the  Fresh Picked Anemones Etched Dies. SUPER Versatile!

I hope you are inspired! Happy Creating with the Spellbinders Clubs.


The Through the Arbor Garden Collection is so beautiful! There are six die sets and two embossing folders. The flowers in Susan’s collections are made to look realistic on your cards but I used them to suit my style.

The Window Planter card:

I paired the flowers and leaves from the Delphinium Etched Dies with the window box from the Vista View Window Etched die. There are also a few elements from the Queen Anne’s Lace and Ladybugs Etched Dies– a ladybug and some greenery.

 Woven 3D Embossing Folder is part of the Simon Hurley Spring Sampler collection. Here is the video to show you how the realistic versions of the Delphinium flowers look

For this next card I used a few leftover flowers and stems from the card above and created a potted plant using the Botanical Solarium dies. FUN!

Notched Corner Frames Etched Dies and the Criss Cross Motif – 3D Embossing Folder of the Month (Nov 2023) finish the card.

There are lots of tiny flowers in the Queen Anne’s Lace and Ladybugs Etched Dies. I love them as flower confetti in a shaker card!

NEW! Windows With A View Collection by Tina Smith

Spellbinders has a fabulous new collection designed by Tina Smith called The Windows With A View Collection. It’s FULL of all the supplies you need to create the coolest window views for any season or occasion. Today I am sharing 5 cards made with many of the dies, stamps, and stencils in the collection.

NOTE: The whole collection comes in a BUNDLE!

First up is the Mountain View card. How fun are these Background Scapes Stencils? The stencils can be used with the window die or all by themselves.

The stripe paper is also NEW. Its the Candy Kisses basics from the PAPER ROSE collection. The sentiment is Must-Have Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set.

Next is the city scene card. I love this one! I was a little messy with my embossing powders- I forgot to use the anti static pad.

I wanted bold background paper so I decide to use My Favorite Things BLACK AND WHITE STRIPES 6×6 Inch Paper Pack. The happy Birthday is from the Advent Calendar back in December.

I had to put a cute critter in the window!

This little giraffe is a retired MFT stamp set called Sweater weather. There are clouds are available in the Bundle in this collection and in the Up in The Air set. My clouds are from the Rain or Shine Etched Dies.

Succulents, botanicals and cute flower pots? Yes Please!

The plants are from the Botanical Solarium dies

And this is the Columns embossing folder. All of these are perfect for sending a gorgeous view to a friend! I sure hope you are inspired. These were so much fun to create.

I could not wait to Glimmer Hot Foil this Floral I and Sentiment Press Plate! Gold foil and some light coloring with copics and OLO Pink tones Alcohol Markers to match finish the image.

The NEW Woven 3D Embossing Folder is part of the Simon Hurley Spring Sampler collection. The die is Essential Four Petal Labels Etched Dies.

This Floral X and Sentiment Press Plate is perfect for sending Hugs and kisses. Use it for birthday, anniversary or just sending love.

I simply used the Betterpress Letterpress system to make the card and then colored the flowers. Here’s my Instagram reel.

And finally I have a Sympathy card with the Floral W and Sentiment Press Plate.

TIP: The plates can be used with and with out the sentiments. That means you can pull a W sentiment out of your stash and use them together. Like “With Love” or “Wonderful you” or “You are wonderful”

New! Spellbinders Betterpress Place and Press Registration System

Today I have 2 projects made with the new BetterPress Place & Press Registration Collection from Spellbinders.

This collection is based on a new multi color letterpress concept developed by Spellbinders. It uses a template where you can place different plates onto the BetterPress and ink them in different colors to create gorgeous multi-colored designs with ease. I used both new sets in the collection to create these quick and easy cards and love how easy this new system is!

This is the Blooming Garden Press Plate. I did add a touch of copic coloring to fill in the flowers.

Here’s my Instagram reel so you can see how easy it is!

Here is my 2nd card using the Thank You Blooms Press Plate.

Happy Betterpressing!

Its time for the February Spellbinders Clubs!

Im so excited to share my February club projects using the Stencil of the Month Club and the Wax Seal of the Month Club, the Clear Stamp and Die of the Month  and the regular Embossing folder Club. If you like ALL of the spellbinders clubs they now have the DELUXE Caboodle Club just for you. Are you ready for the cards?

Oh so simple and so pretty for the  Wax Seal of the Month Club. This club is sold out for Feb, but you can still get it through the DELUXE Caboodle Club.

The 3D Orange Peel Quilt Embossing Folder is retired but there are several similar options in the spellbinders store. The stems are  Sealed Leaf Sprigs Etched Dies and the Must-Have Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set in silver foil.

The February 2024 Stencil of the Month Club is called “Spring Stencil Backgrounds”. You get 4 Stencils this month!

I pared the stencil with the Be Bold Glimmer Sentiments and the new Heartfelt Thanks & Scallops Etched Dies. Here is my 2nd stencil card.

I used white pigment ink with the stencil and then added a flower from  Fresh Picked Anemones Etched Dies and the sentiment in hot pink foil is also the Be Bold Glimmer Sentiments. Specialty paper in the flower is from Your Paper Insider.

Finally I have the Clear Stamp and Die of the Month  and the regular Embossing folder Club

So pretty in real life. I colored the flowers with the OLO Pink tones Alcohol Markers. That gorgeous Sweet mint foil cardstock is from Your Paper Insider (box #6) ad was cut with the Essential Arches Etched Dies.

I hope you are inspired! Happy Creating with the Spellbinders Clubs.
