January Club Kits BLOG HOP!

Welcome to the Spellbinders January Club Kits HOP! We are excited to be showing off all the fabulous kits for this month.

I get to show you the Glimmer Kit for January. This kit has some beautiful glimmered hearts and sentiments for Valentine’s Day or just a love themed card. Here’s my video featuring this month’s kit if you want to take a closer look!

VIDEO: January Glimmer Kit

Build A Wreath

The cards I created in my video had a simple stamped background. For this card, I wanted to use the flowers from the kit to create a fun Valentine’s Day wreath. I cut the flowers many times using pink, white, and red cardstock. I also used a bright green for the leaves.

Before adding my flowers to my card to create a wreath, I wanted to add a simple background. I used my scoring tool and score board to add a diamond pattern to my card front. Then I placed my wreath over that. To get my wreath in a nice circle as I added the flowers, I lightly traced a round cup onto my card- this gave me the guide to glue my wreath pieces down.


After I had my background finished and my wreath added, I placed my glimmered heart in the middle using foam adhesive. The sentiment was glimmered and added right over the heart.

To embellish, I added some sequins and little clay hearts all around the wreath. Then, the very last thing I did was add white Nuvo drops to the diamond background.

Thanks for joining us on this hop! I have the full hop list posted below, so be sure to move on to the next blog!

    As always enjoyed your video this month. It gives me a different way to look at the kit. However, you hit it out of the park on both sets of cards this month!! I apologize for not telling you this on YouTube but I’ve between minor surgeries. Thanks for all the hard work.

    Very pretty card. Love the flower wreath and the colors you chose. Love what you did with the background too – no need for an embossing folder with that idea. Thanks for sharing your wonderful talent and inspiration with us. 🙂

    The wreath is so so pretty! Very pretty card with the perfect sentiment including oxoxox. (I never use xo, I always say ox ox so that made me smile to see that).
