It Takes a Long Time to Grow an Old Friend

 Hello. Today I have a few cards using a sentiment from the new You're Vintage Stamp Set from Technique Junkies: https://techniquejunkies.com/youre-vintage/  This stamp set is part of the awesome August new release: https://techniquejunkies.com/august-2022-new-stamp-release/  I also used some previous released stamps.

You're Vintage: https://techniquejunkies.com/youre-vintage/ 
To create my first card I ink blended a background panel using three colors of Catherine Pooler Inks: Chiffon, Catching Rays and Pucker Up. To ink blend, I used foamed domed blending tools and Hammermill premium cover paper, 100 lbs. I then stamped the sentiment at the top of the card. For the bottom of my card, I used the previously released Wildflower Silhouettes stamp. I trimmed the panel with a stitched rectangle die and then adhered it to an A2 black card panel.

Growing Wild Stamp: https://techniquejunkies.com/growing-wild/
For my second card, I created my background with Lapis Lazuli and Smoldering Ash Shimmering Bliss Sprays. I stamped the bottom of the panel with the previously released Growing Wild Stamp. I then splattered white ink on the panel.  Next I heat embossed the sentiment using black embossing powder. I had a piece of paper that I sprayed with Shimmering Bliss Spray in the same colors as the background panel that I used as a mat later behind the sentiment. I trimmed everything with my Deckle Trimmer and adhered it to a white card panel.

Spellbinders Parcel & Post Collection dies and Crossed Lines Hot Foil Plate Christmas Cards #Spellbinders #neverstopmaking #glimmer #glimmerhotfoil

Hello. I have two cards using several new products from Spellbinders. 
This Parcel & Post Mailbox Etched Dies is part of the Parcel & Post Collection. There are 15 thin metal cutting dies. Also included are floral accents and even an envelope die. In the card above I paired it with the Christmas Mailbox Greetings Glimmer Hot Foil Plates. For the background, I used the Crossed Lines Cardfront Glimmer Hot Foil Plate, foiled with Silver Glimmer Hot Foil. I used a variety of glitter paper and foil card stock to cut out the floral accents. 
                      For my second card I used the Parcel & Post Christmas Decorations Etched Dies. This set includes a candy cane, holly berries & leaves, candy and a decorative bow. I used the Christmas Mailbox Greetings Glimmer Hot Foil Plate for the sentiment on the mailbox. I used the Crossed Lines Cardfront Glimmer Hot Foil Plate, foiled with Silver Glimmer Hot Foil for my background. I used a variety of glitter paper and foil card stock to cut out the candy canes and other accents.

Spellbinders Solid Arch & Blooming Tree hot foil plates Christmas in July #spellbinders #neverstopmaking #glimmer #hotfoil

 Hello. I have a new card that was created using several Spellbinders Hot Foil products. 

To create my card, I first hot foiled the Blooming Tree Hot Foil Plate & Die set (the Christmas Tree, above) https://shrsl.com/3mpct onto off white pearlescent cardstock using Green Glimmer Hot Foil: https://shrsl.com/3mpds I then hot foiled the floral accents including the flower, leaf and sprig with Rainbow Glimmer Hot Foil: https://shrsl.com/3mpdz
 
I hot foiled the Glimmer Essential Solid Arch Hot Foil Platehttps://shrsl.com/3mpcj using Glimmer Hot Foil Roll Starburst: https://shrsl.com/3mpdv  This hot foil looks like a three dimensional kaleidoscope. I trimmed the arch shape using scissors. 

Finally, I die cut the Merry Christmas sentiment (from a previously released and retired Spellbinders set) using gold foil card stock.

I adhered the Blooming Tree to the Hot Foiled arch using foam tape for added dimension. I adhered all the components of the card to a red pearlescent card base. 

The following products were used in making my card:

Blooming Tree Hot Foil Plate & Die: https://shrsl.com/3mpct
Green Glimmer Hot Foil: https://shrsl.com/3mpds
Rainbow Glimmer Hot Foil: https://shrsl.com/3mpdz
Glimmer Essential Solid Arch Hot Foil Platehttps://shrsl.com/3mpcj
Glimmer Hot Foil Roll Starburst: https://shrsl.com/3mpdv
