Spellbinders | June 2024 Monthly Club Kits

Hello, crafty friends! Today, I'm showcasing the June 2024 Monthly Club Kits from Spellbinders. Both cards feature both the "Stitched Ice Cream" Stitching Die of the Month and the "Summertime Sentiments" Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month. Club Kits close on the 27th of each month so get them while you can!

I used the same colours on both cards, one of which is an unique 3.5 x 7.5" and the other is the standard A2-sized card at 4.25 x 5.5". Originally, I wanted to make a mini slim but it was too short for the triple cone stack. The regular business slim was also too big so I ended up with this proportional custom slimline card.

The "melonized" colour palette I used mainly consists of Ballet SlipperPoppyMint Julep and Fern. The neutrals include SnowdriftAlabasterPortobelloTimber and Mirror Gold cardstock.

I felt the best way to use these colours was to create vanilla and strawberry ice cream cones with the "Stitched Ice Cream" Stitching Die of the Month. I also cut and stitched pistachio/mint ice cream but it didn't look as good as these two flavours. I created the Mint Julep background with the retired Optical Arches Embossing Folder and it adds to the fun, upbeat mood of this card!

I used coordinating embroidery floss from the DMC Color Essentials Warm Bundle and the DMC Color Essentials Neutrals Bundle. The stitching patterns on the cones make them look so realistic!

After arranging the cones and cherries on the embossed background, I heat foiled the sentiment from the "Summertime Sentiments" Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month using Matte Gold Hot Foil on Snowdrift cardstock.

My second card uses pretty much the same colour palette as the first, except I added a chocolate ice cream scoop to create a Neapolitan stack. Some brands make the stack in a different order with the vanilla in the middle. What is your preferred order or does it not matter? LOL

This background features the Peppermint Stripes Embossing Folder, again in Mint Julep. The embroidery floss comes from the same two bundles: the DMC Color Essentials Warm Bundle and the DMC Color Essentials Neutrals Bundle.

For the sentiment on this card, I combined the large, scripted heat embossed words from "Summertime Sentiments" Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month with one of the banners from the "Stitched Ice Cream" Stitching Die of the Month, which was layered with Poppy and Mirror Gold cardstock.

I just love all the stitching and texture on these two cards! I think this is definitely the most fun Stitching Die of the Month so far. What do you think?

The "Summertime Sentiments" Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month comes with so many other sentiments, suitable for retirement, summer and so much more. If you were to receive one of these cards, which one would you want? ;)
