Spellbinders Holiday 2019 Blog Hop
Hi crafty friends! Here is Mayline’s blog! You should’ve arrived from Amanda Korotkova. And thanks for joining us for the Spellbinders Holiday 2019 Blog Hop! I feel so honoured to be part of such a wonderful blog hop.
Today, I am sharing many cards using new holiday collection. I was non-stop creating cards with them. So, I just selected 6 cards but the last three cards are pretty similar layout. If you want to see holiday collections click here
Let’s take a look at my first card! Oh! before that, we do have a giveaway! Don’t miss out!
To celebrate this release, we are giving away a $50 gift certificate to one lucky blog reader – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Giveaway closes on Sunday, August 25th 11:59 pm EDT. The winner will be announced in the blog hop post the following Monday. The winner is responsible for shipping cost, duties, and taxes.
Here is my first card. I used Merry Hugs dies and Ornament Glimmer Hot Foil Plate which has 1 hot foil plate and 6 dies. For this card, I used only dies to create a Christmas wreath. I prepared A2 sized black cardstock panel and used these two dies to get pieces. And then I made a Christmas wreath first. After that, I assembled some die-cut pieces to make a cute dog and inserts in the wreath. It’s very easy and quick.
This Merry Hugs dies has 6 dies including a dog, accessories (glasses, bow, and crown) and the word “Merry” “Hugs”.
For this project, I used Ornament Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Merry Christmas Banner Glimmer Hot Foil Plate. I combined this two image in one panel using two different colour of foil gold (Glimmer Hot Foil Roll Polished Brass) and red (Glimmer Hot Foil Foils Roll-Red). First, I used the Ornament hot plate with gold foil and metallic blue paper and fussy cut it and set aside. After that, I used the Merry Christmas Banner hot plate with the A2 sized metallic blue panel and red foil. But I noticed that the edge of the panel has some foil was left. So I wanted to hide it.
The video below is showing you how to cover them with leftover foils using a sticky tape. The video quality is not very good and it’s a quite shaking because my tripod was broken so I was holding my smartphone. Any way, this video helps you how to make the foiled edge. I thought it’s a good idea to use leftover foils. I don’t want to waste any of foils 😉
For this project, I used Shapeabilities JOY dies. I made a background with watercolour paint and then I made a foiled paper with leftover foils because I had a ton of leftover foils. The image below shows you how I made a foiled paper using leftovers.
From here I will show you three cards but I used same hot foil plate. Making these three cards are the same process. I used Christmas Banner Glimmer Hot Foil Plate with gold foil and black cardstock and then fussy cut it. Next, I used dies from Ornament Glimmer Hot Foil Plate to make poinsettias. I adhered the gold foiled image and poinsettias to the the same black paper panel using 3D foam tape.
There was a behind story… the image supposed to be stamped in the centre but I could make it centred in A2 sized panel. However, the image outcome was perfectly and beautifully solid image. So I fussy cut the image and adhered to the panel. If you want to make A2 size card (or any sizes of cards) you want to make you should prepare a slightly bigger paper. Once you get used to how to perfectly handle the paper and plate you don’t need to prepare like this. But for me, I need more experiences to make it be centred.
Here is another one I used the same product. This one I used silver foil. But I was too fast to rolling the die-cutting & embossing machine. (I don’t know how to express in English.. but you know what I mean 😉 ) It turned out like an image below. But it looks like a vintage style or chalkboard effect texture. Actually, I do like this result. I felt that just black and white (silver) is a bit boring. I added gold and purple foil (Glimmer Hot Foil Roll Fusia Flower) to the edge of the panel.
I couldn’t stop to make hot foil images. Here is just making a simple and clean style card with the same plate.
That’s all for today! And now… keep hopping! Your next visit is Varada Sharma.
