A Valentine with some Shine!

 The December Glimmer Hot Foil Kit at Spellbinders is another fun 0ne.  I love all the hearts, sentiments and coordinating dies included this month...


Spellbinders


I hot foiled the heart and banner sentiment and then cut out each with its coordinating die.  I added them to a pink card base and then tucked in the little flowers and leaf dies that also come in this months kit.

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!

Happy Christmas...

 Hi friends!  Have you seen Simon Hurley's products over at Spellbinders?  He has an amazing line up that you will want to check out.  Stamps, dies, hot foil plates, Lunar Paste....all fun stuff!  Today, I wanted to use his new stamp set called Folk Art Ornaments and so I sat down and put this card together...


Spellbinders


First up, I hot foiled the Geometric Diamond Hot Foil Plate to create the base of the card.  Next, I used a rectangle die on card panel to create the frame.  Using my favorite Foam Strips EVER...from Scrapbook.com....I added those to the back of the frame to pop it off the card.  

I chose 3 different ornaments from the stamp set and heat embossed them onto 3 gorgeous cardstocks from Concord and 9th.  I added a little ink blending at the bottom of each to give them some contrast.  (All colors linked at the end of my post).  After popping each ornament up on foam squares, I hot foiled the sentiment, Happy Christmas, with silver foil and added that in.  This was so easy to make and so much fun!

The Greetery All Wrapped Up Release...

Hello friends!  I hope that you have a chance to sit down, grab a up of coffee and settle in because I have lots to share today.  The Greetery's All Wrapped Up Release goes live tomorrow, November 22nd at 10am EST so today we are all here to share all the amazing new products.  This release focuses on some new tools to add fun details to your gifts but these same products work great for card making too!

Keep scrolling to check out all my projects, the details about the giveaway and a full list of places to stop. Don't forget to leave a comment on each stop for more chances to win!


The Greetery


There are so many fun new dies and 2 new stamp sets.  In this first photo, you will see the Crimped Circle Tags along with the Round About Winter Foliage Die to create a fun little gift tag.  I attached it a Kraft paper wrapped gift with a little piece of ribbon from a new die called Ribbon Maker: Small Stripes Die.  These new Ribbon Maker dies are so much fun and, along with The Greetery's new Ribbon Paper Rolls, you can make your own ribbon in several styles releasing tomorrow!  

The green tags along the bottom are from the new Tear Strips Tag Stamp Set and Tear Strip Tag Die Set.  The 2 work together to create simple but adorable tags, 4 at a time!  I love that you can make a bunch at once!

In the top right, there are 2 Crimped Circle Tags stamped with the perfect gifty sentiments from the new stamp set called Tagged Elegance.  They fit perfectly on the small circle but also work great for the large. 


The Greetery


This next round shows another Kraft wrapped gift with pockets where I tucked away Big Branches: Pine Dies.  These die would look great layered up for card or tags or, in this case, on a gift.  The gift is topped with the most fun Loopy Boy Builder Die.  You can also see a few more of those Tear Strips Tags and then in the top right corner, there are 2 more branches, Big Branches: Eucalyptus Die and Big Branches: Baby's Breathe Die.  More greenery, perfect for decorating any project.

This next project was made with the new tag die called Banner Gift Tag.  I love how this die works perfectly with the large Crimped Circle Tag.  I popped it up here with some foam tape and added in the die cut letters to coordinate with these tags below....


The Greetery


I created more Tear Strips Tags and put them all in a clear tube to create the perfect little crafty gift!


The Greetery


The Round About Winter Foliage Die works perfect when layered together to create a little wreath.  I wanted to keep this card clean and white, so I added a little washi to the card base, popped the tags up on top and then stamped the sentiment in the center cut out of the Foliage die and popped it up in the middle. Super easy!


The Greetery



The last project I want to share today combines several of the new Big Branch Dies, along with the new Dried Citrus Slices....


The Greetery


Using the A2 Arches Die Set, I created a little banner.  With the coordinating Arches Stencil Set, I added some color to each panel and then built up the decor with several of the new dies and some cinnamon sticks.  

I created a place card to coordinate with the banner using the same supplies....


The Greetery


This is the perfect way to leave a note for each guest coming to dinner.

A little info about commenting here on my blog....


My comments are moderated because I get a ton of spam.  The kind of spam that tells me about cholesterol medication, among others, and just weird bot comments so I filter those out.  If you leave a comment and don't see it, thats ok!  I will see it and I will get it posted for you.  

The other issue is wether or not you need a google account.  I have my comments set to "anyone" so technically you should be able to leave a comment with any type of login, but Blogger is a pain.  If you can't leave a comment and are not sure if you your name is posting along with your comment, please add your name and email address to the end of your comment. This way we can see who you are if your comment gets chosen as a winner!  I am sorry for the annoyance.  I have no idea why it doesn't work like it should.  I have googled and switched settings around and tried all the things but again... Blogger is a pain.

Thanks {Spellbinders}...

Good morning!  I made a card yesterday with some new products I have from Spellbinders and I am in love!!  Check out the Geometric Diamond Background Hot Foil Plate AND the coordinating Layered Geometric Diamond Stencils.  This was such a fun look to create along with some Pigment Craft Co Ink to give the project color.  

Spellbinders


To create this card, I first hot foiled the Geo Diamond Plate with Gold Foil onto white cardstock.  The stencils are so easy to line up.  After centering the diamonds into the stencil and using some of Altenew's Satin Masking Tape (perfectly low tack) to tape the stencils down to the cardstock, I added the ink colors in.  Pigment Craft Co has some amazing colors and then blend up so well! 
(Exact ink colors are linked in supply list at the end of this post)

Spellbinders


Next, I used a few of the blooms from Be Bold Blooms Die Set.  I used the same inks to blend out the color on white cardstock so I could get the coordinating colors from the background. 

Spellbinders


Using gold cardstock, I die cut the thanks sentiment from Yana's Layered Sentiments and added it to my card front.  To pop up the full card front, I layered in a piece of fun foam on the white card base and used ATG to glue the card front to the card.
