Introducing Glorious Glimmer Blog Hop

All that glimmers may well be gold!  Hi there, today we are sharing with you a wonderful new tool - Spellbinders Glimmer Machine.  In a nutshell, it's an accessory to your die cut machine that will let you add foil motifs to materials from paper to vellum to leather to wood to fabric and more.  The machine employs heat and pressure along with metal stamps (Glimmer Plates) to transfer foil to a surface - like cardstock.  The Glimmer Plates work just like rubber stamps and in addition to transferring foil, they can transfer ink, they can letterpress and they can deep emboss.  Some of the sets feature both plates and dies!

Adding layers of gold or colored foil motifs creates an extra dimension to the sweet cards you send in life. This is a game changer for elegant cards!  Crafters are finally able to get that professional printer look, but at home and for way less than engaging a printer to do foil.  I like to think that the glimmer plates will make instant backgrounds and borders, but now there's a new thing to include in your pretty layers!

About Glorious Glimmer

Becca jumped at the opportunity to create a set of classic, never go out of style plates for the new Glimmer Machine.  Glorious Glimmer has that sweet calligraphic look that has been popular throughout the ages.  Whether used as a background, framed or layered up  with a sweet die cut peeking out from underneath, these plates have options that will allow you to highlight them beautifully in any project.

Join us for our blog hop where we will show you some inspiration on crisply transferred foil that spans from a clean look to a more involved elegant look!!  Also today we have the pleasure of introducing a new Creative Team Member.  Please welcome Ewelina Panka - you have seen and have swooned over her work before.  She creates classic beauty on her ----> Blog as well as on her ----> Facebook and on her ----> Instagram.  Please be sure to subscribe to her in each of these areas and watch as she dazzles with her fine eye for detail as well as her magnificent flowers!

My Projects For Today.

Here is what the plate actually looks like.

I created Anniversary card with beautiful Foil Flowers. I placed each flower on 3D tape so that they pop up. I used two different holographic and matte silver foils. I also added brunches that are in this set. I fussy cut them. The sentiment Happy Anniversary is from Spellbinders GLP-033 - Elegant Occasion Sentiments. Underneath the flowers I placed a decorative panel from Spellbinders S5-364 - A2 Corner Cotillion.

Second up is Spellbinders GLP-042 - Elegant Border

Here is what the actual plate looks like:

My second card I decorated with a beautiful Elegant Border. For the border I used holographic foil. Underneath I placed a frame from Spellbinders S5-369 - Ringlet Round and I added handmade flowers from Spellbinders S4-867 - Cinch and Go Flowers III die set. 'Congratulations' comes from Spellbinders GLP-033 - Elegant Occasion Sentiments.


These plates are available right now on the Spellbinders website —–> HERE
