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....


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.  


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

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!  


Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Hope you have a great day!
