Altenew


This is the new Pink Perfection Camellia 3D Embossing Folder.  I went way way back in my stash and pulled out the white core card stock to do a little sanding.  I love how this old technique came back around and gives so much detail for this gorgeous floral embossing folder.  I added in the hello die and a heat embossed sentiment strip.  Super simple!

Glimmer All the things!

Do I say it too much?  Do I tell you how much fun foiling is?  Maybe I sound like a broken record at this point but when each new Spellbinders Monthly Club Kit comes in the mail its like Christmas.  Every month!  This months kit is no exception!  I love the banner and all the possibilities with the different sentiments you can build.  To see the full set, click HERE!

 

Spellbinders


I combined this months Glimmer Kit banner sentiment with little details from the Card kit of the Month.  I adore that patterned paper and those cute little coordinating butterflies.  This card was so easy to make!

Are you new to hot foiling?


Spellbinders has a platform called Glimmer Hot Foil System.  This platform heats up metal plates called Glimmer Plates.  These glimmer plates come in ALL different types....sentiments, florals, backgrounds, graphic details etc....and add the most gorgeous foiling detail to your cards.  And the foils?  There are LOTS of different colors to chose from!


Here are some links to help point you in the right direction....






The Glimmer Hot Foil System works great with a Platinum 6 Die Cut machine from Spellbinders but also works with other die cut machines. You can click HERE to see a compatibility chart.  


First you heat up the platform and your glimmer plate on the Glimmer System Platform.  Then you add in the foil and the cardstock and run it thorough your die cut machine.  Once you pull off the foil negative, the magic happens!  That foil that is set on your cardstock and the results are just gorgeous!

 I have not been much into card kits until the Spellbinders kits that I have been using lately. It feels like a different kind of card making, and for me, that has turned out to be so much fun!  I love all the details included, and the papers and dies.  When I make cards from these kits, they don't look anything like my typical cards, and I think that is why I like them so much!  That and you can make a TON of cards with each kit!

Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Hello Beautiful Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Altenew is releasing a new kit today called Hello Beautiful....


 Craft Your Life Project Kit: Hello Beautiful

There is nothing like a bouquet of flowers to bring you joy and contentment! Enjoy our Craft Your Life Project Kit, an exciting monthly package that is sure to get the creative juices flowing! Featuring a 6x8 stamp set, coordinating die set, as well as a stencil and embossing folder to fit the theme, this project kit has almost everything you need to start crafting. Just add ink and cardstock, and you'll be good to go! This kit features a gorgeous stamp set with three beautiful floral clusters. The flowers and leaves were drawn with great care, giving special attention to the folds and curves of the petals. The set includes eight messages great for everyday occasions. The kit also features FIVE coloring stencils which will allow you to color the floral clusters in two coloring layers. Furthermore, there is a matching die for each of the floral clusters and an embossing folder featuring an elaborate version of one of the floral clusters from the stamp set. Pair them together for the best results.



Altenew


My favorite cards are quick and easy and this kit lends to that style so well.  First I added stripes on the background of a card base using the Classy Stripes Stencil.  I stamped the flowers and added in the stenciled color.  I love how easy this detail is for coloring in cards.  


Altenew


I layered the main image with a die cut of fun foam for easy dimension.  I added a 1/2" frame in black pen around the card front, along with a sentiment from the set.  Adding the image in was the last step!  Definitely a quick and easy card!
