Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System Blog Hop...



Hey there friends!  Today is a fun day! It's time for the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System Hop.  I bet you have seen some amazing stuff so far.  I have a few clean and simple cards using the foil system. I have one project using the Glimmer Plates and one showing how you an use a regular die to create a fun design.

CARDS

I have several easy designs here today.  This first one showcases the We Wish You Glimmer Plate.  I just love this tree and the green foil makes for an adorable pairing.  I die cut the tree with a rectangle Nestabilities dies and then layered it with another rectangle of white cardstock.  I added the tree to a striped pattern paper covered card base.

This next card would be super easy to mass produce.....because I left the foiled die to shine by itself.  The Making Spirits Bright Glimmer Plate is one of my favorites with that beautiful font and those adorable lights.  All it took was a little Copic coloring to add some detail to this clean and simple card....

I had an idea for the next project when I saw the Flourishes Frame Glimmer Plate.  Leather earrings are all the rage and some of them are made with a fake leather that has leather look but it melts a little like plastic.  I had to give it a shot so I tested it out and was able to make these...

To create these, I set the Hot Foil System up just like you would foil something.  Instead of laying down the foil, I added a piece of parchment paper between the die and the faux leather.  I rolled it through the Platinum 6 and it resulted in in a fun embossed leather.  You can find many earring cut templates on Pinterest so you can cut any shape of earring you'd like. (all supplies linked below)

This last project uses the Nordic Tree Die to create a fun design on the card front...

To create this card, I used the Green Glimmer Hot Foil and used the regular die through the Hot Foil System.  I love how it looks.  It also gives it a little bit of a letter press look too, which is so detailed and fun! I popped the image up on fun foam on the white card base and then heat embossed sentiment on the front of the card.

Look at the shine on the front of the card...
