Altenew NEW Sweet Moments Collection Release Blog Hop

Altenew has a fun new release today with lots of new stamps, dies and hot foil plates!  Check out my project below and don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win an awesome prize!

Today I am using the new Eucalyptus Wreath Hot Foil Plate and Stencil Set to create a quick and easy card. 


Hot Foiling has become one off my most favorite techniques.  I love the shine it brings to a card and it is SO easy!  The next best part is the Stencil.  This coordinating Eucalyptus Wreath Stencil fits right inside the foiled areas to add color easily!  Love that!


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!  



$300 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $25 gift certificate to 8 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 12/09/2021 for a chance to win. 

Altenew will draw 10 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 12/11/2021.
