Spellbinders September 2019 Card Kit

Today I’m sharing cards made with the Spellbinders September 2019 card kit. The kit is packed full with everything you need to make at least 10 cards. It’s definitely possible to make more, though.

The Spellbinders card kit is a monthly subscription. You can also purchase the kit extras separately, if you only want select items or would like more embellishments. For those that want to join multiple clubs and save, Spellbinders offers Value Clubs.

Price increase and new value clubs

The Spellbinders kits just keep getting better and better each month. To maintain the high quality and due to higher costs in the market, Spellbinders have recently announced a small increase in individual club kit prices of between $2.50-$3.50. Value Club Kits prices will vary depending on the individual club kits included.

For current subscribers, this increase doesn’t kick in until the October kits. For new subscribers, the price increase begins this month.

There are also two new Value club options available starting this month:

OK, onto this months kit!

The September 2019 card kit is called ‘Express Yourself’. I think this might be my favourite kit so far. I absolutely love the colour palette of navy, pink and gold. The sentiment stamp set is so versatile and the exclusive die set is great fun! I’m also pleased to see smooth cardstock included this month. If you haven’t subscribed to the kit yet, I think this is a fabulous month to join.

In the kit, you get the following items:

  • 10 textured white card bases with envelopes
  • 9 pieces of smooth cardstock, including metallic gold
  • Set of 10 dies
  • Paper pad
  • Stamp set
  • Gemstones
  • Die cut shapes
  • Chipboard embellishments
  • Double sided tape & foam squares

I have 6 cards to share using the kit. The only items I used in addition to the kit contents were:

  • Liquid adhesive (my preferred adhesive type)
  • Foam tape (I like to use a lot of foam tape so needed more than was included in the kit)
  • WOW Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder
  • Black ink
  • Scoring board and bone folder

Here are the cards I made:

  • Adhere a piece of patterned paper to a card base, leaving a small border
  • Cut a smaller piece of white card, then add patterned paper to one half.
