Altenew


I adore this layered apple and the amazing pencil image.  These images were super easy to line up and stamp out perfectly!  I stamped out several pencils in rainbow order and added them to a white card base with foam tape.  


Altenew


Next, I added the sentiment in black ink...and then finished with that apple.  So much fun!!

Thinking of You {Spellbinders}...

 This month's Glimmer Kit of the Month Kit from Spellbinders is a versatile one.  You can add the glimmer....or you can add in stitching!  The finished product is a very unique butterfly with lots of detail so you know the possibilities are endless!  I kept my card super simple....aside from the stitching....so let me show you how I did it!


Spellbinders


First, I created a white card base with a sentiment stamped at the bottom.  Next, I die cut the Magnolia Blooms in white cardstock so I would have a fun design to anchor the butterfly too.  


Spellbinders


With Coral and Black cardstock, I die cut the main butterfly out twice.  I die cut the stitched portion all in white and then added in pink and black stitching.  This part was super simple!  After layering all the parts together, including the black butterfly body and antenna, I used foam tape to pop it up on the card.  I finished the card with clear drops for a little extra detail.

So glad you stopped in today! Have a great day!

Hot Foil FANTASTICNESS....

Is fantasticaness a word?  Well, I am feeling it for this amazing new product from Spellbinders.  Check out the Essential Solid Rectangle Hot Foil Plate.  This new plate has several functions....you could hot foil a large rectangle to create your own foiled paper.  Or what I did today was use the left over foil from another foiled image and added that foil to a piece of cardstock.  I used the Skinny Striped Background Hot Foil Plate on and other card and took the leftover foil to create this rectangle....


Spellbinders


After foiling with this gorgeous gold foil, I cut it out and added it to a white card base with foam tape.  Then I used the Magnolia Blooms to add in a pop of color.  I did 2 layers here....the first was a quick color using comic markers and then next, I popped out the outline and laid it on top.  


Spellbinders


To finish off this card, I added in Yana's Layered Script Sentiments.  Love the delicate cuts these make!  


Spellbinders


Check out all of the new Hot Foil Plates from Spellbinders by clicking HERE!  There is a Circle, Square, Oval and Rectangle.  So many possibilities!


_____________________________________



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!
