2 Fall cards, featuring Spellbinders October 2019 GOM

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing 2 cards that I created with the September 2019 Glimmer Hot Foil of the Month (GOM), called Sunset Harvest.

ahsang sb octGOM 2

This month’s GOM comes with 6 plates and 5 coordinating dies.  You also get a copper foil roll.  The “many thanks” sentiment is perfect for this time of year.

ahsang sb octGOM 1

I used my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil system, the glimmer plates and the copper and polished brass foils for my cards.  I used my Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cutting machine and the coordinating dies as well.

For my first card, I decided to use the leaf plates and coordinating dies to make a wreath.  I chose a very fall color palette, and foiled and die cut the leaves.  I chose a light pink cardstock for the background.  I foiled the sentiment in the middle, and then trimmed down the cardstock to about 4 x 5 1/4 inches.  I glued the background panel on a white card base with fun foam.  Then I adhered the leaves in a wreath, using both liquid glue and foam tape.  To finish off my card, I splattered some gold color shine from Heidi Swapp, added some liquid pearls and glitter novo drops.

For the next card, I wanted to use all the hot plates included in the set.  First, I foiled the largest image on a sheet of maroon cardstock.  Then I foiled the other images and used the coordinating dies to die cut them.  For the sentiment, I foiled it on a larger piece of cardstock, and decided to cut it out in a banner shape.  I adhered everything to the card with liquid glue and foam squares.  To finish off the card, I used a white gel pen and added a border around the card base.  I also used the gold color shine, liquid pearls and novo glitter drops.

I really love the way these cards turned out.  The hot plates and foil is perfect for fall.  I hope you were inspired by my card, and I hope you check out the club kits on the Spellbinders website.

Happy Saturday!

Rainbow card, featuring Spellbinders September 2019 GOM

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing a rainbow card that I created with the September 2019 Glimmer Hot Foil of the Month (GOM), called Brilliant Corners and More.

ahsang sb septGOM 1

This month’s GOM comes with 6 plates and 5 coordinating dies.  You also get a teal foil roll.  The “It’s Your Day” sentiment is great for all occasions!

ahsang sb septGOM 3

I used my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil system, the glimmer plates and the teal foil to foil the corner images on cardstock scraps in a rainbow pattern.  I used my Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cutting machine and the coordinating dies to die cut the corners out.  

ahsang sb septGOM 4

I originally die cut 7 (there was a green corner), but I couldn’t get them to fit on the card.  I ended up removing the green one, and decided to put green on the card base instead.  I used Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio to ink blend in an ombre style on a piece of white cardstock.  Then I placed out all the pieces, and decided where I wanted the sentiment to go.  I hot foiled the glimmer plate sentiment towards the right side of the ink blended panel.  Next, I adhered the corner pieces in rainbow order using liquid glue and various thicknesses of foam squares.

To finish off my card, I used Stickles glitter glue in Turquoise and Crystal.  I love the pop of glitter and shine.

I hope you were inspired by my card, and I hope you check out the club kits on the Spellbinders website.

2 school themed projects, featuring Spellbinders Aug 2019 Large DOM

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing a couple of clipboard projects that I made using the Spellbinders August 2019 Large Die of the Month kit (DOM).  This month the kit is called Write On.

ahsang sb augDOTM 1

I filmed a YT process video, showing you how to piece all the little dies together to make a clipboard, scissors, pencil, pen, and paperclip:

 

For the first project, I made a clipboard birthday card.  I used the Happiest Birthday glimmer hot foil plates my sentiment, the Pink foil, and my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil machine.  I also used the star dies from one of the previous Spellbinders Large DOM kits, but any small star dies will do.  First I foiled my sentiment on a piece of navy cardstock.  Then I die cut all the pieces I needed, and pieced them together.  You can see it in my process video.

ahsang sb augDOTM 3ahsang sb augDOTM 4

For my next project, I wanted to create a back-to-school morning checklist for my 9 year old.  I made sure to laminate it, so she can use a dry erase marker in the morning.  First, I made a word document checklist.  I printed it off on lightweight white cardstock.  I used the smaller rectangle die to cut it out, then laminated it using my laminating machine.  Next, I die cut all the pieces, and put it together.  I used all my daughter’s favorite colors, so I know she’ll love it!

These dies are so awesome!  I love the detail put into these dies…I mean look at that pencil!  You can also make the scissors move by using a small brad.

2 cute cards, featuring Spellbinders August 2019 GOM

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing 2 cards to I created with the August 2019 Glimmer Hot Foil of the Month (GOM), called All Occasion Pennants.

ahsang sb augGOM 1

This month, you get 5 pennant hot plates that have a different sentiment on them, as well as a coordinating die and a die for the stick/string.  You also get a roll of prism hot foil.

ahsang sb augGOM 3

I also had some Spellbinders Die D-Lites in my stash from a previous project, which you can see here, and I wanted to use them again because they are so cute!  For my backgrounds, I created some alcohol inked panels that I trimmed down.

 

For my first card, I used the “Hooray” pennant.  I hot foiled it on yellow cardstock and I used the prism foil.  I die cut the pennant using the coordinating die, and I die cut the stick in brown cardstock.  I used the Lion, Oh My! dies to create this cute little lion using cardstock from my stash.  Doesn’t the little lion look so dapper and cute?!

ahsang sb augGOM 4

 

For my second card, I used the “Bday” pennant, and I used the polished brass foil.  Again, using the coordinating dies, I die cut the pennant.  I also die cut the stick in coral cardstock.  For this card, I used the Woliver dies to create this cute little walrus.  I added some Nuvo white blizzard to the walrus’ pom poms, and the ice pieces.

ahsang sb augGOM 5

 

To finish off my cards, I attached the background to white A2 sized card bases with fun foam.  I attached the pennants and cute little animals with foam squares.  Then, I added some of the FSJ Starry Night sequins for a little more interest.

If you’re interested, I did film a YT process video featuring a few of the Spellbinders Die D-Lites a while back.  The lion is on there, but the walrus is not.  Here is the link:

 

Also, if you’re new to the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil system, here is my first YT video explaining how to use it:

 

I really hope you like my cards, and picked up some inspiration.  I had a blast making them!

2 cards, featuring Spellbinders July 2019 GOM

Hello friends!  Today I’ve got 2 cards to share with you using the July 2019 Glimmer Hot Foil of the Month (GOM), called Glimmering Sentiments.

ahsang sb julyGOM 2

This month you get five hot foil plate sentiments, as well as the coordinating metal dies.  You also get the Pewter foil this month.

ahsang sb julyGOM 1

For my first card, I used the sentiment Wishing You Well.  I made a wreath using the Spellbinders Thanks a Bunch clear stamp set.  I used Distress Oxide inks, in the colors Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, Peacock FeathersSeedless Preserves, Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, and Cracked Pistachio, my Misti stamping tool, and a wreath building stencil to create my card.

ahsang sb julyGOM 3

For my sentiment, I used the Pink foil, and I also added a few flowers from a previous Spellbinders LDOM, which is still available, called Layered Cake Sparkles.  I trimmed the stamped panel, and adhered it to a square cards base with foam adhesive.  To finish off my card, I added some liquid pearls in white opal, taffy, and marigold.

ahsang sb julyGOM 4ahsang sb julyGOM 5

 

For my next card, I used the sentiment You Brighten My Day.  I did a little bit of ink blending on a piece of pale blue cardstock.  I added light layers of Distress Inks in the color Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot.  Once fully dry, I foiled my sentiment using Prism foil.  Using the coordinating die, I die cut a piece of copy paper.  I added just a tiny bit of repositionable glue, and used it as a mask to cover my sentiment.  Then, I used the FSJ Space Galaxy Background stamp, Versamark ink, and white embossing powder to heat emboss the background.

ahsang sb julyGOM 6

To finish off my card, I added a few jewels from the FSJ Space Glow embellishments, and a few dots created with Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard.  I added the panel to a white card base with foam tape.

I love the way my cards turned out, and I hope you do too.

Foiled Flower card, featuring Spellbinders June 2019 GOM

Hello friends!  I hope you are having a wonderful day.  Today I’m sharing a foiled flower card, using the Spellbinders June 2019 Glimmer Hot Foil of the Month (GOM).  This month you get the Radiant Flower set, which includes six hot foil plates, as well as the coordinating metal dies.  The kit also includes the Pink foil.

I’m using the Everyday Sentiments II glimmer plate sentiment that says “Thanks a bunch,” and I’m also using the Fancy Edged Rectangles nesting die set.

ahsang sb JuneGOTM 1

I filmed a YT process video as well:

 

On some various tones of maroon and pink cardstock, I used my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil system, the floral glimmer plates and the pink foil to get the floral images.  I used a few tones of green and teal cardstock, and the Blush foil to get the leaves images.  Then, I used the coordinating dies, to die cut all the images.

Next, I took a piece of white cardstock, and foiled the sentiment with the pink foil.  I die cut it with the largest of the Fancy Edged Rectangles dies.  I added just a little bit of ink blending, starting at the top of the panel to create a ombre look.  I used the Distress Oxide ink in Worn Lipstick.

ahsang sb JuneGOTM 3

I arranged and adhered the diecut flowers and leaves onto the panel.  I used liquid glue on some of the layers, and foam dots on others.  I tied a piece of twine right under the sentiment, then adhered the whole panel onto a white card base using fun foam.

ahsang sb JuneGOTM 2

I love all the texture and layers that I created on this card.  It turned out so feminine and pretty.  I really hope you were inspired, and I hope you check out the fantastic products on the Spellbinders website.

Happy Friday!

 

 

Best Wishes card, featuring Spellbinders May 2019 GOM

Hello friends!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far.  Today I’m sharing a Best Wishes card, using the Spellbinders May 2019 Glimmer Hot Foil of the Month (GOM).  I also used the flower and leaves dies from the May 2019 Large Die of the Month (LDOM).

ahsang sb MayGOM 1

On a piece of white cardstock, I used my Glimmer Hot Foil System to hot foil the filigree frame with the Polished Brass foil, which both came in the GOM.  Next, I used Distress Oxide inks in Squeezed Lemonade and Abandoned Coral with an old makeup brush to ink blend right on top of the hot foil.  I hadn’t tried foiling first, then ink blending before, so this was a bit of an experiment.  After all the ink blending, I took a paper towel to buff off the residual ink on the foiling.  I will admit that the ink blending and the buffing did dull down the foiling a little bit, so I will stick to ink blending then foiling next time.  Using the oval die that came with the filigree frame, I die cut an oval from the center of the cardstock.  I then trimmed it down to slightly less than A2 sized.

ahsang sb MayGOM 3

On a separate piece of white cardstock, I used the “Best Wishes” sentiment that came with the Glimmer Hot Foil machine, and the same foil that I used for the frame.  I used foam tape on the back of the filigree frame panel, and adhered it the the Best Wishes panel.  Next, I adhered the entire thing to an A2 sized white card base.

I added some die cut flowers and leaves from the May LDOM to my card.  I finished it off using liquid pearls in brass and white opal.

ahsang sb MayGOM 2

I love how elegant and feminine my card turned out.  I hope you do too!  Don’t forget to check out all of the Spellbinders Clubs for kits filled with awesome value.  Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Sunday!
