Spellbinders Happy + Gilded Age and a Giveaway!

Hi there friends!  Today I'm part of a blog hop introducing two new collections from Spellbinders!  Both collections feature some awesome dies and also Glimmer Plates!


You should have arrived here from the fantastic Laura Volpes blog.  If you are starting here, the whole blog hop will be listed below.  Be sure to read to the end to enter the giveway!

Here are the new Collections:

Happy by Sharyn Sowell

The Gilded Age by Becca Feeken

New Foil colors for Glimmer Hot Foil

My first card features products from both collections.



I used the Celebrate with Cake die set and made a beautiful three layer cake complete with flowers.  I also used the Gilded Nested Hot Foil set from the Gilded Age collection.  These hot foil plates also have a companion die set (sold separately) The banner came from the Happy It's Your Day die set.



These next two cards feature a technique that I have wanted to try, but never have.  I used hot foil on my alcohol ink backgrounds, and OH MY....the results are stunning. I admit, I wasn't sure if putting the alcohol ink background on a hot foil plate was a good idea.  But it worked awesomely!



This card features the lovely Oh Happy Day Glimmer hot foil plate.  I used the new Aura foil...and that is my new favorite!  It shimmers and shines, and picks up color from everywhere.  Every time I photographed it, the color changed...so cool!




This last card features an absolutely stunning Gilded Vines Glimmer Hot Foil plate from Becca Feeken's Gilded Age collection.  I used the black foil on my alcohol inked background....and as you can see, the card has maximum impact!
