Full Tutorial in HD on Youtube

To get started the products I am using today are

  • Simon Says Stamp Peony Bouquet Stencil
  • Gina K Designs In the Navy
  • Stazon Pigment Ink in Snowflake, Lemon Drop, Pink Cosmos and Shamrock Green
  • My Card Base is Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110 lb Cover
  • I am using simple makup sponges, but you could use make up brushes as well.
  • Gina K Designs Embossing and Watermark ink
  • Brutus Monroe Gilded Embossing Powder
  • Simon Says Stamp Big Thanks Words stamp set

Completing My Card Panel

To start I applied a repositionable adhesive to the back of my stencil and let that dry for a few seconds and then I applied the stencil to my cardstock. Once adhered I started sponging on the white snowflake pigment ink to all of the stencil that was showing on my card panel. Once the layer of white was added, I then added Stazon Lemon Drop ink to the stamens. I then moved on to adding the Stazon Pink Cosmos ink to all of the flowers. And Finally I added the Stazon Shamrock Green ink to the leaves.

For my greeting I embossed one of the Thanks from the Simon Says Stamp Big Thanks Words stamp set using Brutus Monroe Gilded Embossing Powder and Gina K Designs Embossing and Watermark ink. Next,

  • I cut an 8.5 x 11 110 lb Neenah Classic Crest Card down on the 11 inch side to 5.5 inches and then scored with my scor-buddy at 4.25 inches.
  • I then adhered a piece of fun foam with 1/2 inch scor-tape to the back of my card panel to give it some dimension.
  • Before adding my card panel to my card base. I took the stencil and added one of the Peony’s to the inside of the card base. I then added my sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Big Thanks Words stamp set. Using Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink.

Finishing Up

To finish I adhered my card panel to my card base and then completed a quick matching envelope using a Gina K Designs In the Navy envelope and the Peony Bouquet Stencil, again adding a layer of white snowflake pigment ink from Stazon and then adding the Lemon Drop ink followed by the Pink Cosmos and finally the shamrock green.

This completes my project for today I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and you click the link #TeamTinySpringFlowers and follow along on Youtube. Please Check out all the other talented crafters who are hopping along.

Spellbinders Glimmer hot foil system

Hello Crafty Friends! Today I have a brand new video featuring the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot foil System using the Sizzix Big Shot die cutting machine. In the video I talk about some issues that I was having and therefore on the verge of returning the glimmer system. Because I took some time to play around and get a good grasp of this machine I have fallen in love with the beautiful foiling it creates. Check out the video below to see what I did to overcome my foiling adversity. Click the image below to start the video!

These are some close up images of my foiling journey

The black card is Strathmore Mixed Media and the red is from the heavy weight paper pack from Hobby Lobby
Some examples of vellum, the tag shape is Simon Says Stamp and the others are pieces of 48 lb vellum purchased from Hobby Lobby
The white card stock is Gina K white layering card and the black is from a Neenah 65 lb cover paper pack
Here we have sea glass from Simon Says Stamp and In the navy from Gina K. The white card stock is Simons 120 lb card which works wonderfully as well. The Merry and Bright is using Neenah 65 lb card stock paper pack
Here are the swatches I created using acetate. Sorry for the glare…

Thank you so much for stopping by today and checking out my video and blog. I do hope you found some value and are able to better work with your Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System no matter which die cutting machine you have. Happy Crafting!
