Spellbinders Glimmer Foil kit - July 2019

Hi there friends!  Hope you're all having a great summer with friends and family!

Today I'm showing off my favorite (to date) Hot Glimmer kit from Spellbinders.  Nothing inspires me more than a fantastic sentiment set, be it stamps, dies or hot glimmer plates!  They are just so useful!  And this kit goes onto my "must have" list.    I quickly made four cards with this set, and the uses are basically unlimited!



 First things...what is the kit?  It's a monthly subscription that enables you to get exclusive glimmer plates each month for your hot foil machine.  The machine is fantastic, and the selection of foils is amazing.  I use mine so much, its a permanent fixture on my craft table now.

On to the kit.  It's a fantastic set of sentiments with coordinating dies, and it comes with pewter foil!  You can see the entire kit at this link: KIT (affiliate linking may be used at no cost to you.)


And now on to the cards!


This card combines some ink blending and a stencil and a really fun set from Fun Stampers Journey.  I stamped all the pieces, die cut them and arranged them on a rectangle I cut out using the  Spellbinders Hemstitch rectangles.  (Another must have for me!).  I added my Foiled sentiment from the Kit, and I love it!


This card literally came together seconds after the last one...this ink blending is just the edge piece from the last stencil....it was too pretty to throw out, so I reached for some die cuts I had, and mounted them on the card panel and added another one of the fantastic Hot glimmer Foil sentiment pieces...and called it done.


This card has a Spellbinders Cut and Emboss folder, a little bling, and that super cute Birthday sentiment from the kit.


I was in the mood to do some more foiling, so I used the Spellbinders Circle pattern glimmer plates on this one, added a little ink blending, and some leftover die cuts and topped it off with the Foiled greeting from the kit.

That's it for today!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Peace,

Fun stampers Journey Stamp of the month club -July 2019

Hi there friends! I hope you are having an enjoyable summer and staying cool!   I’m playing around with the super cute Fun Stampers Journey stamp of the month kit for July,

This month it’s a cute stamp set called Age of Aquarium (love that play on words).


This set was so fun, I was quickly inspired to make several cards!


For the first card, I used my ink blending brushes and some distress ink to make an under the sea background.  I stamped the fish, and plants and castle in some bright colored inks and fussy cut them out.  I arranged them for a sweet under the sea scene.



This card was super fast.  I used the negative space from an oval die cut using my favorite Spellbinders Hemstitch oval set as a stencil.


My last project features an Aquarium Box companion die (sold separately) that makes a 3D card and I used it as a gift card holder.

The Fun Stampers Journey (FSJ) Stamp of the Month sets are made in the USA of high quality deeply etched red rubber with cling mount. Our stamps create one of the best impressions on the market giving you a perfect stamped image every time.
This month's "Age of Aquarium" creates gorgeous floral cards, scrapbook pages, and more. You can also purchase the coordinating Aquarium Box Die Set (DI-0539) - Sold Separately.

You should have arrived her from the fabulous blog of Justine Hovey.

Spellbinders is continually adding great glimmer plates to their collection.  You can see all the latest ones HERE.



This card features the new Flower Pattern Glimmer Hot Foil plate.  This plate is so versatile as it's an A2 card sized plate.  I foiled this one in black glimmer foil and colored with Copic markers.  I also used one of my foiled sentiment strips as the greeting.


For the final touch, I added a jewel heart to the card.


This card features two different glimmer plates from the new collections.  I first used the Circle Pattern Glimmer plates and some pink foil.  I die cut around it using the hemstitch circle dies.  I then foiled the greeting with the Hello foil plate with gold foil.  I die cut the word and mounted it over the circles.

New Spellbinders Cut & Emboss Folders

Hi there crafty peeps!  Hope you are enjoying your summer!   I find I am super busy in the summer, yet I still have cards I need to create and send.  Right now, I need a bunch of Thank you cards.

Have you tried the Spellbinder's cut and emboss folders?  Today was my first time playing with them, and they make creating a pretty card so quick and easy!  The cut and embossing folder does double duty by embossing and cutting a gorgeous design into your cardstock.

Spellbinders released several new designs recently, and I played with a few of them.  You can view them HERE.



This card came together so quickly!  I ran a piece of white cardstock and the new Moroccan View cut and emboss folder through my Spellbinders Platinum 6.  Then I added color with the Jane Davenport pastels palette and a cosmetic sponge.  It's so gorgeous and shimmery!


I have a bunch of sentiment strips made up with my Hot Foil Glimmer machine, and I added one and voila...super quick card!



Here is a second card I made using the same process and a different cut and emboss folder.  Now that I've played with these...I need more!  So fun and pretty!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I've provided links throughout my post for all the things I used.  (Affiliate links may be used at no cost to you....thank you for your continued support!)

Have a great day and see you soon!

Fun Stampers Journey - Stamp of the Month Kit June 2019

Good morning crafty friends!  Hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of summer!  Today, I'm sharing a card using the June Fun Stampers Journey stamp of the month kit.  I loved the theme for this month...DONUTS!  I immediately thought of my Dad, he loves donuts and the newspaper on Sunday mornings.  So...I am going to give him this card on Sunday for Father's Day. 








This card was a lot of fun to make.  I stamped a half dozen donuts on some smooth white cardstock, and then colored them with easy Copic coloring.  I used a white pen to add some icing to the chocolate ones. :)








I used the coordinating dies to cut out my donuts  and my sentiment "Sprinkled with Love"






I wanted to make the card look like a box of donuts, so I took a piece of kraft colored cardstock, and made it into a card.  I used the rectangle from my favorite must have set Hemstitch rectangles from Spellbinders, and cut a window in the card.  Then I cut out a rectangle of tissue paper to put my donuts on.  (just like they do at the bakery!) I adhered the tissue paper, and then popped the donuts on using some foam tape to give them dimension.  I closed my "donut box" with a little adhesive, put the sentiment on and then mounted the whole thing onto another A2 sized card. 


Instant, calorie free, fun donuts!  I love it!

Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Kit for June 2019


Good morning friends!   Today I'm bringing you a fun floral card.  I used this month's Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil kit or this month.



This month the Hot foil kit is FLOWERS!  There’s are so many possibilities with this kit...and it includes the matching outline dies.

I also colored my flowers with something new to me.  I recently got the Jane Davenport pastels...they are so easy to blend.  I love the softness of the only card, and they are a nice change from blending inks.

New Artomology from Jane Davenport


Hi there crafty friends!

Today I have something a bit different for you.  Recently Spellbinders asked me to play with some Glimmer Plates from the NEW Artomology collection from Jane Davenport.

You can see the entire collection HERE.

This collection is geared towards the Mixed Media artist, but is so versatile, you can play with it on cards, scrapbooking,  whatever.  Its so fun and playful, I really went outside my comfort zone with this.

I was delighted to see that there are Hot Glimmer Foil plates (oh, how I love the foil!) in this collection. 

I also took the opportunity to play with some of the fantastic coloring mediums from Jane’s Making Faces collection.  (you can see them all HERE)

 




For this card, I used the beautiful Aura Glimmer Foil on the Masquerade Hot foil plate.  The plate comes with a coordinating die and makes it so easy to cut out your foiled piece.

I also used the Making Faces Palette Pastel Set from Jane in two ways.  I pulled out the swatch card from the palette and colored her using the pastels.  I added the mask, and some additional jewels to dress up my girl. 

 


This whole collection is so beautiful and unique.

Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Kit for May 2019

Good morning friends!   Today I'm bringing you the Anniversary card I gave my hubby this past weekend.  I used this month's Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil kit for this month.  


Last month, I used the Glimmer Hot Foil system on an alcohol ink panel.  This month, I used it over washi tape...*YES* WASHI TAPE!  This opens up a lot of possibilities.  It foils beautifully every time!


I have been collecting curating beautiful Washi tapes for a long time.  I am always happy to find a new use for it!


For my card, I covered a white card stock panel with washi tape, and then used the Glimmer Hot Foil kit plate right on top.  I think it worked wonderfully!

I also foiled my envelope!  TIP:  Do not put the glue flap on the hot foil plate as it may cause the glue to melt. 

The kit this month is really pretty, it includes a main large frame Hot foil plate, and two accent plates.  There is also a die to cut out the center of the frame, as well as a die that cuts out the accent pieces.  The kit includes a roll of Glimmer gold foil.

I made this card by stamping the beautiful girl image on smooth white card stock, using a Copic friendly black ink.  I colored her with a variety of Copic markers and then colored the entire background .  I then used some Copic blending fluid to make the background look mottled.  I used a heat gun to set the entire thing.

The pretty circle border is from one of my MUST HAVE die sets (I use these dies all.the.time!)  These are called Hemstitch circles.  I have all the sets...they are awesome.  You can see them HERE.

Pretty Peonies - Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!  Today I am so honored to be part of the Pretty Pink Posh April release blog hop!
So grab a cuppa something and hop along with me!  Be sure to read all the way to the end so you don't miss out on the GIVEAWAY!
You should have arrived here from the fabulous Eloise Blue .  If you are starting here, I have an entire list below.




The new release features some great stamp sets for Mother's Day, Father's Day, Graduation and really, any day!  It also introduces a new product for Pretty Pink Posh....STENCILS!!!


You can see the whole new release HERE.


Let's get started, shall we?








This card features the gorgeous new set Peonies, from Pretty Pink Posh.  This set features several beautiful blooms that are perfect for coloring!


I started out by stamping all the flowers and leaves on Neenah Solar White 80lb super smooth card stock.  I used Memento Black Ink. I colored all the images using Copic markers, and cut them out using the Peonies coordinating dies, and set them aside. 


I took another piece of smooth cardstock and laid the new Leaves stencil over it and blended it with a soft green dye ink.




I used the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched diamonds die set to make a shaker window in my card panel.  I cut a piece of clear acetate and sealed up the window, and then added some Sparkling Clear sequins to my shaker.  I used foam tape around the edge to make the shaker.  I mounted the entire piece on an A2 sized card base.  I arranged all my flowers around this shaker window.  Lastly, I heat embossed the greeting from the Pretty Pink Posh Everyday greetings set, cut it out and mounted it on my card.






My second card on this hop uses the new Pretty Pink Posh Mother's Day set, the Leaves stencil, and a beautiful new Scripty Mother's Day Die.


This card was made much like the first one, as I did some simple, easy Copic coloring.  I used the Pretty Pink Posh Window Frames die set for my shaker and I filled it with the beautiful, new Carribean jewels!  (I squealed in delight when I saw these...GORGEOUS and in my favorite color!!)






The scripty Happy Mother's Day die adds such a punch to the card!  I hope my Mom likes this card! (Mom, if you're reading this, pretend you didn't see it. ;))
