NEW VIDEO – SpellBinders Ornament Glimmer Foil Plate

Saturday, November 30th, 2019

Hi Stamping friends and happy weekend. Brr it’s chilly out there so why not cuddle up to some hot foil?

Today I’m sharing this fun foil and die cut holiday card created with the Spellbinders Ornament Glimmer Foil Plate set. AND, I have a awesome Spellbinders SALE for you – check the bottom of this post.

This set is absolutely fabulous to create with as there is the ornament and two sets of sentiment plates to foil with and six dies to cut out the beautifully detailed poinsettia and greenery.

It’s fun and quick to create these pretty cards and everything you need is included in this one package. Check out the beautiful die cut detail on the flower and leaves in this set.

I started with a white A2 card base and used the Life Changing Brushes (On sale today for 50% off) to add my blended blue background with Distress Oxides in Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch.

I heat set the ink to dry and then added a splattering of white paint to the background for some added interest.

I use the Gemini Foil Press Machine and my Gemini Jr Die Cutting machine to add the gold foil for my ornament and sentiment and I show you below in the video just how quick and easy that is to do.

My final embellishments, a sprinkle of gold sequins across the card and three gold pearls in the center of the poinsettia.

And here’s another card created with this set, but in different colors.

In my video I use the Gemini System from Crafter’s Companion, because I had the Gemini Jr. Die Cutting Machine. Spellbinders also has a great system that works with their die cutting machines. The plates and dies from both companies along with Picket Fence Studios and My Favorite Things work in both machines and the foils from both companies do as well, so feel free to mix and match away.

I’ve shared the links below to the products I have used in today’s card, I hope you will give Hot foil a try, it’s very addictive haha. and I’ll be back on the 15th with another Hot Foil Card to share with you.

Picket Fence Studios Foiled Christmas Cards

Monday, November 4th, 2019

Hi crafty friends and welcome back. Sandi MacIver here and I have a super fun post for you today. I was playing with the Gemini Foil Press Machine and I made two Picket Fence Studios Foiled Christmas Cards to share with you in today’s Stamping Video.

Picket Fence Studios Foiled Christmas Cards

I used the Picket Fence Studios Two Part Foiling & Cutting Dies for both cards. The Falalalaaaa sentiment, the Merry Christmas sentiment and the Christmas Leaf Bulb. What I love about these sets is there are two dies. One to foil with, and a second outline die to die cut the image out allowing you the freedom to place it wherever you wish on your card.

With the Christmas Leaf Bulb I show you how to use the positive and the negative of the foil, to create two Christmas balls from one piece of foil.

For the pink card, I use Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick to sponge onto the white card stock before I do the foiling. That’s what creates the pretty two tone background effect.

The Christmas Ball on the blue card is the one created with the negative foil piece left over from the first pass, that’s why most of the ball is gold and just a tiny bit of the blue card stock shows through. Because of that, I chose to sponge the card front for this one to add a little depth of color to the background.

Here’s the video for the Picket Fence Studios Foiled Christmas Cards walking you through the steps to sponge, foil and put the cards together.

Thanks so much for stopping in today and I hope you enjoyed the projects. I have listed the products I used below with links to the Scrap ‘N Stamp Store for you.

Until next time, Happy Stamping
