Spellbinders | Colorblock Landscape + Circle of Sunshine

*This is my second post of the day, please see below for my Clearly Besotted Teaser*

Hello there, I am back today to share two tags with you using the new Spellbinders June 2021 Small Die of the Month Club Kit and the Clear Stamp of the Month Club Kit. Although these both work well separately, they also work really well together, so I have used both on my projects today. 

The Spellbinders June 2021 Small Die of the Month Club this month is called Colorblock Landscape and as you will see, it is just that! The kit consists of six dies - a landscape that has several layers that inlay with each other, a round image (that works perfectly as a sun), a triangle piece (that works perfectly as sun rays but that can be used in other ways too), two leaves and a cactus. For my tags today, I thought that I would create a desert landscape as well as a sea/sunset one. 

For the sea and sunset one, I started off by die cutting the landscape panel several times from various shades of cardstock - blues/aqua for the ocean and pink, orange and yellows for the sunset. I took a panel of white cardstock and adhered the sea/ocean pieces first. I didn't use the piece that looks more like mountains/trees. I then adhered the sunset pieces above it. I used Bearly Art Glue for this so that I had a little bit of wiggle room. I die cut two of the pieces on the sunset with the circle die so that I could inlay the sun inside. I then ran the piece through my die cutting machine with a tag die. 

I took the Spellbinders June 2021 Clear Stamp of the Month Club Kit, which is called Circle of Sunshine, and stamped the birds from it on to the tag with black ink. I then took the sentiment and stamped it on to black cardstock with FSJ Clear Pigment Ink. I applied FSJ White Embossing Powder, heat set and cut it in to a strip. It was added to the tag with foam squares. To finish off, I added a few Spellbinders Silver Mix Color Essential Gems around the sentiment and tied FSJ Journey Black Twine through the top. 

For the next tag, I wanted to create a desert scene but I thought it might look nice for one of the layers to be a lake too. I die cut the landscape die from the Spellbinders June 2021 Small Die of the Month Club Kit from green, browns/kraft and blue cardstock. I started at the bottom with the sand parts, followed by the lake and then with the trees part (which I think also look like mountains), I die cut the circle from it so that I could place the sun there. It would probably look better to have the sun peaking out from behind the trees but I wanted to stamp the sentiment on to it so I needed the full round shape. I then adhered the tree piece on top before die cutting the panel with the same tag die. 

I die cut the sun from yellow cardstock three times. On to one of them, I stamped the sentiment from the Spellbinders June 2021 Clear Stamp of the Month Club Kit on to it with black ink. I layered them up and adhered them to the tag. I then die cut the cactus four times from green and layered them up so that each one was two layers thick. They were adhered down on top of the sand. To finish off, I added FSJ Journey Black Twine through the top of the tag and Spellbinders Gold Mix Color Essential Gems

I had a lot of fun with this kit! I also made a card that I will share later in the month. Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you have a great rest of the day. Take care! 


  1. These are lovely - I think this is such a pretty die set to work with. I love that it cuts all those inlay pieces and you just have to marry them all up. The desert landscape looks gorgeous with the lake and I love the beautiful colours in the sunset tag. Fabulous! xx
