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 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!



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.

Spellbinders Decorative Glimmer Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Hi there friends!  Today I'm hopping along with a bunch of crafty friends for the Spellbinders new Decorative Glimmer blog hop.

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.

To celebrate this release, we are giving away a $50 gift certificate to 3 lucky blog readers – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Giveaway closes on Sunday, July 7th 11:59 pm EDT. The winners will be announced in the blog hop post the following Monday. The winner is responsible for shipping cost, duties, and taxes.
