I recently jumped into creating with the Spellbinders October Watercolour Card Kit of the Month. (Whew that’s a long name huh?) In 2 days I made 13 cards and I could have kept going as I have LOTS of supplies left!
I made a video to show you all the cards. I hope this inspires you if you have this kit or you simply enjoy the cards if you don’t.
(In case the video won’t load, here is the YouTube link https://youtu.be/gsac_Tm87wk)
I added a few extra things like dies, sequins, gems, Nuvo drops, foam adhesive (some comes in the kit but it’s thicker than I usually use), twine, vellum, ribbon and lace.
Oh, and a bit of white cardstock for the extra card bases. I rarely use coloured cardstock for bases anymore. It seems like a waste of money and dark cardstock especially needs a liner or a light coloured gel pen for the message.
Yet I still have so much left over! All but one of the wooden button and epoxy stickers, almost all of the cardstock, TONS of die cuts, about 80% of the sticker sheets, all but one of the journaling spots and tags plus of course the die set and stamp set which never run out!
This kit is definitely the most user-friendly kit I’ve purchased and having so many of the gorgeous die cuts means making cards is fast and fun. I didn’t even use the dies for these cards except for the celebrate die. I did use them for a postcard though.
I can totally see myself making a pocket page with many of the remaining supplies. There are many geared towards home and family.
So here are 6 of the cards plus the postcard. I’ll post photos of the other 7 soon! Leave me a comment: Do you buy card kits? If you do, do you end up using them up? Or do they sit on a shelf like most of mine do? If not, why not? Is this kind of feature something you’d like to continue to see?
