Spellbinders Glimmer Kit of the Month...

 Good morning!  I am stopping in today with the May Hot Foil Kit of the Month.  This kit is so much fun with the circle polka dot background plate and sentiments to complete your card!

Here is today's card...

Spellbinders


To create this card, I hot foiled using Gold Foil on a white card base.  Keep scrolling to learn more about the hot foil process.  I added the Mini Blooms and Sprigs Die Set to the card to give it some color.  This flower die set is a must have!  So fun to put together!

This next card uses the Spellbinders Stamp of the Month.  I just love this font!  


Spellbinders


To create this card, I added the Sweet Blooms Border to a yellow card front.  Next, I hot foiled and die cut this white circle using the Essential Glimmer Circles Hot Foil Plates.  I stamped the sentiment in black ink inside the circle and then finished the card off with the Mini Blooms and Sprigs die cuts.  

_____________________________________



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.  


So once the platform and your glimmer plate heat up, you add in the foil and the cardstock and run in thorough your die cut machine.  Once you pull off the foil negative, the magic happens!  That foil that is set on your cardstock is just gorgeous!
