Welcome to the Winter Magic Blog Hop from Altenew.  If you are looking for Winter themed stamps, dies and hot foil plates, you are in the right place!  There are so many gorgeous new products this month and you can check it all out by clicking HERE!

Keep scrolling to see today's super easy Hot Foil project, the details on the amazing Altenew Giveaway and the full blog hop list.  Don't forget to leave a comment here and on each stop along the way!  


A little info about commenting here on my blog....

My comments are moderated because I get a ton of spam.  The kind of spam that tells me about cholesterol medication, among others, and just weird bot comments so I filter those out.  If you leave a comment and don't see it, thats ok!  I will see it and I will get it posted for you.  

The other issue is wether or not you need a google account.  I have my comments set to "anyone" so technically you should be able to leave a comment with any type of login, but Blogger is a pain.  If you can't leave a comment and are not sure if you your name is posting along with your comment, please add your name and email address to the end of your comment. This way we can see who you are if your comment gets chosen as a winner!  I am sorry for the annoyance.  I have no idea why it doesn't work like it should.  I have googled and switched settings around and tried all the things but again... Blogger is a pain. 


One more bit of exciting news....Altenew is releasing a brand new pack of adhesives.  It includes 1 glue tape applicator and 3 refills.  Check it out by clicking HERE!


Today's quick and easy project using the new Magic Burst Hot Foil Plate.  I used Silver Foil and hot foiled the image to a navy blue card base.  


Using the Layered Snowflakes 2 dies, I simply used one of the dies to add in the white snowflake.  There are several dies in the set that can be layered to make amazing detail, but they can also be used alone for the perfect quick and easy snowflakes for your projects.  To finish off the card, I used the Hello and Hugs Die Set to add in the die cut sentiment.   The sentiment was die cut using Altenew's Brushed Silver Metallic Cardstock.  If you haven't seen this cardstock yet, click HERE.  These cardstocks are absolutely gorgeous and die cut beautifully!

Are you new to hot foiling?

To get the gorgeous hot foiled look, you need a platform called Glimmer Hot Foil System.  This platform heats up the Hot Foil Plates.  Altenew has Hot Foil Plates 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 09/06/2022 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 09/07/2022.
