Spellbinders GLIMMERING FLOWERS COLLECTION | Two Easy Hot Foiled and Ink Blended Cards

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am sharing a couple cards that I made using products from the Glimmering Flowers Collection from Spellbinders that just released this morning. I made two different cards using some of the products from this band new collection that is part of the April 2024 Spellbinders Release.

Two Easy Hot Foiled and Ink Blended Cards:

Both of my cards today featured the Glimmering Peonies Glimmer Plate and Stencil Bundle (from Spellbinders). I wanted to share how you could take the same products and create two totally different projects with them. For both cards I also used the Curved Everyday Sentiments Hot Foil Plate for all the sentiments.

Once I had the image hot foiled it was time to use the coordinating stencils and use ink blending to fill in the color. I used distress inks for the ink blending along with the layering ink blending technique for this card. I also used the Gold Foil to foil the sentiments from the Curved Everyday Sentiments Hot Foil Plate. I then took the peonies hot foil plate and my Spellbinders WIZARD TAN EMBOSSING MATS to dry emboss the glimmer plate onto a pice of Pitch Black Cardstock (from Hero Arts).

All I had to do after that was to attach the embossed panel to my A2 top folding card base. I took the hot foiled image and cut it in half or sort of half and attached each part to my card front. I then added the sentiment to the card front.

Glimmering Peonies Card Card Number 2:

For my second card I took the panel of white cardstock that I did my hot foil on and used the stencils to do a little simple ink blending. For the ink blending I used distress oxide inks.

Once I had the entire panel ink blended I used my A-2 Matting Basics B Card Creator Etched Dies and placed the third one from the outside on the panel. I then used a pencil and traced around the outside edge to create a frame. Once I had the outline traced I took my snips and cut around the inside of the traced line. Around the parts of the image that was sticking out from the rectangle I just did simple fussy cutting around them.

Once I had that completed I could then add my card front to my top folding A2 card base with foam adhesive. I then added a sentiment to the front but instead of hot foiling them in gold this time I used the Rainbow Glimmer Hot Foil.

To finish off the card I added a few of the Prism AB Color Essentials Gems. I sprinkled them around the second card because I thought it needed that little extra touch. For the black card I didn't add anything additional.

And that my friends is how you can create two totally different cards using the same products. I hope that you have a wonderful day and I will see you again soon.
