Hot Foiling Three Ways - Cardmaking Inspiration with the Spellbinders Royal Florish Glimmer collection by Becca Feeken.

Hi everyone! Today I am really excited to be a guest on the Spellbinders blog with three cards showcasing the gorgeous  Royal Florish Glimmer collection by Becca Feeken.


For the first card I used the Imperial Adorned Ovals and the The Contessa's Seal Glimmer Hot Foil Plates. I chose to do some foiling with the Bright Pink Glimmer Hot Foil Roll over some white cardstock and to play with layers.



I combined the Glimmer Hot Floil Plates from this new collection with the previously released Gilded Leaves Shaped Panel, from the Becca Feeken The Gilded Age collection. For the flowers I used some dies from the Sew Sweet Valentine set and Nuvo Drops in Simply White in the centers.



For my second card I went for a rather modern look, and used the Crowned Rimmed Squares to create a gold foiled pattern on one of the papers from the You're My Type Paper Pad.



I obtained the broken up effect on the foiled details by adding some cardstock pieces behind the patterned paper while foiling, making sure to leave some gaps between them. This way the pressure on the plates was not the same everywhere, and I was able to create stripes with no foil in certain areas of the Crowned Rimmed Squares.



I layered my patterned paper panel with some gold and black cardstock, and with one more paper from the You're My Type Paper Pad. For the sentiment I used plates from a previous Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month. I decorated the card with one of the You're My Type Die Cut Shapes and some white Nuvo Drops.




For my third and last card I went for a vintage, distressed look. I used Copper Glimmer Hot Foil Roll and the The Contessa's Seal Glimmer Hot Foil Plates to foil some kraft and some watercolor cardstock.


I distressed the edges of the panels with some scissors, and used Distress Ink in Vintage Photo to give them an aged look, which I thought worked really nicely with the Copper Hot Foil Roll.


Both the decorative die cuts around the sentiment oval and the sentiment itself are from previous  Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month sets. I matted the foiled panels on a A2 sheet of kraft cardstock, cut at a standard A2 size and distressed and aged with the same procedure as the other elements on this card.



And these are my projects for today! I really hope you liked them, they are rather different in style and that was the really fun bit: trying to create different looks and feels on these cards with Plates from the same collection!Thank you all so much for stopping by, and to Spellbinders for having me as a guest!

Have a wonderful day!

Four Seasons Card Series - Mama Elephant Me and My Dragon - Spring


Hi everyone! Today I am back with the second installment of my Four Seasons Card series featuring the Mama Elephant Me and My Dragon and Dragon Wishes stamp sets. If you missed the first card in the series, you can check it out here.

After winter, it was time for a spring card, so I opted for some bright colors. Like I did in my previous card, I created a scene. I used the Mama Elephant Cloud Nine Dies to create the sky, the cloud and the sun. I added colors to the elements using Distress Oxides in Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin.


For the hills I combined the Cloud Nine dies with the Landscape Trio dies, also by Mama Elephant. I ink blended Distress Oxides in Twisted Citron and Lawn Fawn, and raised the front hill on one layer of foam tape.


To add an extra touch of spring, together with the dragons from the Me and My Dragon and Dragon Wishes stamp sets, I used the butterflies and the birds from the Wild Roar set. I stamped them with Scrapbook.com Premium Hybrid Black ink colored them with Spectrum Noir Markers.
I also created a color chart for you, you can pin it to your Pinterest boards for reference, if you like.




For the sentiment I used again the Hello Friend Script die. I layered some white cardstock with a sheet of craft foam to create a dimensional sentiment, and blended some Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry to add some color to it.



And that's it for today! I really hope you like this card, and I hope you are a little excited about this cardmaking mini series. I can't wait to create my summer card!
As always, thank you all so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Easy and Quick Card for a Girl feat C.C. Designs


Hi everyone! Today I am back with a quick card I created with the new Adell rubber stamp by C.C. Designs. 

I started by stamping the image on some Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock with Premium Hybrid Black Ink by Scrapbook.com. I then colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers and, as there are no dies for this set, I used my new ScanNCut machine to cut it out. 


For the stripey background I used the Candy Store Stencil by Heffy Doodle. I first blended Distress Oxide in Spun Sugar over it using a blending brush, and then coated it with Moonstone Glimmer Paste by Tonic Studios.


I matted the stripey background with a black stitched rectangle, and glued everything in place. The embellishments I used are the Studio Katia Iridescent Cones, and the sentiment is part of the Quad Collage dies.


For an extra touch of sparkle I coated the sentiment and the black panel with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen, and that finished off my card.

And that's it for today! I really hope you enjoyed today's inspiration for a quick card for a girl, using the C.C. Designs Adell stamp.
Thank you all so much for stopping by and have a great day!
