You're a Wonderful Friend...

 Have you seen the Stitched Flower Etched Dies from Spellbinders?  They are soooo cute!  They have been out of stock for a minute but they are back!!  I took these flowers with me on a camping trip months ago and did some stitching.  I love how they turned out!!  

Spellbinders


To start, I added an embossed panel to the front of a white card base.  I used the Slimline Flora Embossing Folder to add in that beautiful texture.  After stitching up those adorable flowers, I added them to my card front with foam squares.  Each flower got an Altenew Enamel Dot to complete each bloom. 


Spellbinders


I did a little gold foiling to a favorite sentiment from Yana's Special Sentiments and added that to my card to finish it off.

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!

Forever Friend and some Foiling {Spellbinders}...

Hello friends!  I know posts are few and far between these days but with a senior and a busy middle schooler, life has been crazy!  Now we are headed in to the busy summer of all the travel (which makes me so happy!!) but I find myself not in my craft room as much.  I was able to squeeze in a card this week with the new Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Kit for June....and the kit is so pretty!!


Here is today's card....

 


Spellbinders


To create this card, I read the paisley hot foil plate through the Glimmer Hot Foil System using 3 different colors of cardstock.  Using Copper foil, I gave these paisley images so much shine!  I also used it for the sentiment along the bottom of the card (which is included in the kit).  I popped each paisley up on foam squares and then added a clear dew drop to each of the circles to finish off the card. 


Spellbinders

Spellbinders has several different Monthly Kit options to choose from.  Click HERE to learn about the die kits, the Card kit and many more!
