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.

Cool Yule Masculine Card

Monday, December 17th, 2018

I don’t know about you, but I always seem to struggle with making masculine cards.

So with a few males on my christmas list this year, I played around with the Tim Holtz COOL YULE dies. Here’s one of the masculine Christmas themed cards I came up with. :o)

I started with some Designer Christmas paper in plaid and then cut out a frame using the Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames from Lawn Fawn in a coordinating cardstock.  I adhered the frame to my designer paper using Nuvo Deluxe Glue. I then adhered the panel to a Kraft Cardstock base.

I then cut out a circle using Spellbinder’s Pierced Circles from some more Designer paper and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide. Now for the fun part, I cut out all the snowman pieces from the Cool Yule Die set in different cardstocks and adhered him together….how COOL is he? hehehehe This is such a fun set as you can mix and match a lot of the pieces….so much variablitily in this set!I adhered him to the circle with Foam Tape and finished with a sentiment from Tim Holtz Snowman Blueprint set. Which has a label I stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and the sentiment in StazOn Blazing Red Ink.

I kept it pretty simple for mailing and like I said before, I struggle with Masculine cards and WHEN TO STOP. lol. But here’s the inside using the same design as the front and an old sentiment from Cornish Heritage Farms.

I hope y’all have a Happy Holidays and I’ll see you back here after Christmas with another fun lil’ make.

Happy Craftin’!

You’re Stinkin’ Cute!

Saturday, November 10th, 2018

I just adore the mini Stamp sets from Lawn Fawn, especially this little cutie, Stinkin Cute set and Coordinating Die.

These little sets are so versatile and great additions to any stamp collection at the lower price points. :o)

Here’s my lil’ card that I made usin the Stinkin Cute stamp and Die sets along with some pencil crayons and gamsol.

I stamped the image with Jet Black Archival Ink onto Bristol Smooth paper, and colored the image with Derwent Pencil Crayons, but the Chamelon Pencil Crayons, work just as great. I blended the 2-3 color shades with Gamsol and blending stump.

I then used the Coordinating die to cut out the image and flower. For my card base, I used Charcoal Recollections Cardstock and some Design Paper in Grey and Mint Green from CraftSmith. I used two Small Circle Dies and offset them off my card front and stamped the sentiment onto mint Cardstock and die cut with MFT- Fishtail Flag Frame dies and just cut the one end off to create banners.

I finished off the inside off my card with a few more offset circles and a sentiment from Recollections.

There we have it, a CAS card that has a lot of CUTE FACTOR!! lol!

Happy Craftin’!
