Happy Birthday {Spellbinders}...



Spellbinders has recently released a new collection by Sharon Powell called Happy.  It is a gorgeous grouping of Glimmer Hot Foil plates and die sets.  

I chose the Glimmer Plate called Birthday Banner to use for today's card....

Spellbinders

To create this card, I grabbed some Pink Hot Foil and covered this plate.  If you are new to hot foiling, all you need the the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System and a coordinating die cut machine.  The hot foil plates heats up the Glimmer Plate and then when you run it through your die cut machine, it leaves an amazing foiled image.  Its super easy!  To check out the Glimmer Hot Foil System, click HERE.

Spellbinders

I added the foiled image to a white card stock rectangle after adding in some sliver thread.  I found a matching piece of patterned paper in my stash and added in some white paint droplets around the front of the card.  I attached the foiled panel to the card base with foam tape for a dimensional look. 

That is it for me today!  Hope you are having a great day and thanks for coming by!

I grabbed 2 flower die sets and got to work....


MFT Birthday Project

I used the Stitched Flowers set to dry emboss a card front.  I love how this embossing looks.  

MFT Birthday Project

I used Stitched Blooms to but out one single bloom and the leaves to add to the card.  I used the Happy Birthday die and did a little ink blending to give it a bold look.  I finished the card off with a few clear rain drops.  Yes I want to use these on every card for the rest of time.  :)

Foiled Congrats {Spellbinders}...

I am back with another card using the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month?  Like I said yesterday, this kit is amazing!!  The sentiments are so beautiful all foiled up.  Here is what comes in the kit....



Those coordinating dies?  Perfection!


Here is today's card....

(all supplies linked below)


Spellbinders

I grabbed the MFT Balloon Stencil and did some ink blending with my fabulous Blender Brushes.  I covered the top of the card with all the balloons using Altenew ink cubes.

Spellbinders

I grabbed some gold card stock and added that to a white card base.  Next, I divided the balloon panel at the bottom and popped it up on fun foam so that gold strip would show through.  Next, I grabbed one of my extra foiled sentiments from yesterday and added that to my card.  I just love how that foil shines!

Spellbinders

I have had a lot of people ask my what my favorite inks are.  Definitely Altenew Inks.  Check out this pack of 60 cubes that gives you the most amazing rainbow of colors.  I used these inks on the balloons and had the best blending action!

Spellbinders Glimmer Kit

Using the Glimmer Hot Foil System, I foiled up all of the gorgeous sentiments in this months kit.  It was so each to die cut all the sentiments at one time using the coordinating dies.

I grabbed this amazing stamp set from Altenew and stamped the leaves in the background and the big bloom.  I added the bloom to the card with foam tape and then adhered the foiled sentiment to the card front.  I finished the card off with a few pearls.

Here is today's card....

Spellbinders

I took the card front and did a little ink blending along the bottom of the card stock.  I stamped in some of the sea weed along the sides with the sentiment in black.  

Spellbinders

Using some make up sponges, I blended up the ink on the fish to give them a fun colorful look.  Last, I added in some clear rain drops for a little extra detail.
