Spellbinders June Large Die Club Kit!

I have some Spellbinders club kit projects to share for June! This month's Large Die Kit features two gorgeous abstract geometric frames - they can be used alone or layered for a beautiful modern look.

A few months ago during a hard time, I received a very kind gift from a friend in the form of a beautiful and encouraging stamp set... I love stamps, of course (!) and rainbows, and the timing was just so perfect - it meant so much to me. It's been tucked away for a little while, in a pile of USE THIS SOON items, and the hand-lettered sentiments were a perfect match for this die kit! And it happens that this friend needs a pick-me-up herself now, so... it's time. Here's the full set:

I started by taping down a panel of watercolor paper, then painted horizontal stripes with a 3/4" brush using my grid mat as a guide. I cut the frame out of the center of the panel, and also cut two frames from another watercolor panel. I love cards that keep creating themselves - you can see I used the white panel and frame on the rainbow panel, and the rainbow frame on the white panel! A two-fer.

The frame dies also come with some floral accents, all with a very modern feel. For some reason this rainbow frame inspired a beachy design and the surfboard from the Truckin' Through the Seasons set wanted to join the party! That pile of white-on-white greenery has a Hawaiian feel to it - I think that's what inspired me.

The greenery and floral stamps are grouped in twos on the actual dies, and for my third card I noticed that one branch die was positioned well to use as a cutout. I cut in from the edge of one of my watercolor panel cutouts, then cut another panel to sponge with gradient inks.

I cut a frame from copper cardstock, then used some copper acrylic ink to splatter the framed piece and base panel. Such a fun card to make!

Here's the full set - I don't usually gravitate to this modern look, but I had some fun with it! I hope you're inspired too. By the way, the larger frame I used is a single piece (two cuts are shown below so you can see how they layer). The smaller frame cuts as shown.
