♥ Merry Christmas ♥


I can't believe it is exactly a week from Christmas Eve! How come the older you get, the faster time goes?? Crazy, right?! Today, I wanted to share a super shiny and easy card I made with the Glimmer Hot Foil System from Spellbinders and some beautiful Glimmer Hot Foil Plates.


The red foil on the base of the card is the Elegant Rectangle Glorious Glimmer Plate by Amazing Paper Grace. I then die cut in gold the Braided Grace Square Etched Die and placed it over top using some foam dots. I then added the Merry Christmas Holiday Glimmer Plate over that also using some foam dots. That plate also comes with the matching die so it can be easily trimmed out. I used the Green, Red and Gold Foils which can be purchased separately or in the Holiday Variety Pack that also comes with Silver Foil. 


What a fun machine to use! You can find all of the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Plates, Foil and Machine HERE!


Have an amazing day!

♥ Glimmer Foil Thank You ♥


Thank You season is almost here! Well it is around here anyway! We all send out Thank you cards after Christmas for all of the gifts that we receive, as well as, throughout the year. So we can never have enough of them! I wanted to make some quick and easy ones to have on hand. So I broke out the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Machine and a couple Amazing Paper Grace Hot Foil Plates to make some shimmery Foiled Thank you cards. I used the Elegant Rectangle Foil Plate and the Elegant Foil Seals Plates by Becca. She also made Elegant Monograms Plates that you could use instead of the Seals, so you can make monogrammed Thank you's, if you wish.


I went and took this picture outside to show you just how much shimmer these foils have! So beautiful! You can find all of Becca's fabulous plates HERE!


Have a wonderful day!

AMAZING PAPER GRACE DECEMBER DIE OF THE MONTH BLOG HOP


Good morning!!  Every month we'll be bringing you inspiration for the Die of the Month; today is our Die of the Month Blog Hop!!   The Die of the Month is like a "Swiss army knife"  you can manipulate it to do a variety of things.  At the very least you can do a card and normally you can use the pieces and parts for cards and other 3D items.  The Creative Team has joined in for everyone to give you their spin, in their style.  We hope you'll see something that resonates and inspires you.

If you are new to our blogs, the Die of the Month is an exclusive die Becca has designed for Spellbinders - it is called Softly Spoke'n Flip and Gatefold Die.  This particular set has 9 dies and they can be used to make a background, a gatefold card, a tent card and the individual dies in the set can be used for many things.

My First Project:


I made a sweet little basket using this amazing Die set. I simply cut out 2 of the larger die cuts using the insert on just 1 side of each die cut. (I also cut a 2nd die cut using gold paper and adhered it, offset, behind the original die cut.) I then folded them and attached them to each other on the bottom with some adhesive. I then cut the side panels by just measuring the width of the basket but left a 1/8" on both sides. I then scored a 1/8" line on each side and adhered those "tabs" to the inside of the basket. So easy and fun to make! These are great to hold candy, a gift card, money or would make great favor holders for a wedding.


My Second Project: 


I made a card using the die as the top layer to the front of my card. Easy peasy! Such a lovely die!!  


I adhered the die cut using some pop dots to give the card depth. This fabulous Die set can be used for so many things and so many different ways! Love it!!
