Spellbinder- May 2023 Club Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello Crafty Friends,

My name is Heejung and Welcome to my Blog! I am super excited to be part of the Spellbinders May 2023 Clubs Blog Hop.

Spellbinders is celebrating all the Club Kits in the shop for May with a fun & inspirational Blog Hop & Giveaway.



Today my projects feature the Embossing Folder of the Month Club, the 3D Embossing Folder of the Month Club, and the Clear Stamp & Die Club for this month.  

Everything about these Club Kits is super fun and can be used for many projects.

3D Embossing Folder of the Month Birthday Card

I love making dark background cards and tried black card stock for my latest creations. Using different supplies for each card, I enjoyed the beautiful contrast they produced. Adding depth and texture, I used a 3D embossing folder for a distinctive touch. Overall, I’m thrilled with how they turned out and can’t wait to create more with black card stock.

After embossing the black card stock, I colored each balloon with Metallic Markers.

It is easier to paint than 2D embossed paper.

For the sentiments I used the Many Birthdays Stamp set and coordinating die, but the product isn’t available. However, I found a similarly designed die called the Smooth Line Mix & Match Sentiments dies.

I used the white Gel pen for the highlight images.

Embossing Folder- Time to Celebrate Card

I used black card stock for the background, embossed with an embossed folder “Candles for Every Birthday”

I colored over the embossed candles with metallic Gold Gel pen.


I don’t have any special dies for the cake, I created a double-layered cake with the Scallop Embossing Folder on the Pink Sand Card Stock.


It could be any anniversary or wedding card. I added the bow from the Seasonal Deco die from the Country Road Collection.

Clear Stamp & Die, Today is All About You Card

This card was inspired by a rustic Blackboard Menu Stand I saw in a restaurant. Finding inspiration in unexpected places sparks creativity as it did for me.

I experimented with coloring heat-embossed images using colored pencils. Coloring on black paper was a bit challenging as some colors didn’t show up well. I used metallic markers to add extra shine and dimension. Despite this, I created a unique piece of art that I’m proud of. It’s good to be flexible and creative when crafting, and I’ll try new techniques and materials in the future.

Over the weekend, I experimented with card-making techniques including embossing and using Clear Stamp Club of the Month on Black Card Stock. Each card had its unique charm and personality, and I loved the creative liberty that came with the whole process. It was a remarkable experience, and I can’t wait to share my creations with my loved ones. Overall, it was an incredibly fulfilling weekend.
