Hiya crafty friends! I’ve broken out the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System and alcohol inks for today’s project. The Crafty Sentiments Hot Foil Glimmer Plates are a set of 6 plates. The sentiment plates are each crafty inspired. This set coordinates perfectly with Spellbinders August 2020 Club designs.
Spellbinders site shares, “With Glimmer Hot Foil you can add stunning foil features to any project from cards to mixed media and beyond. They are designed to be used with Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System (or other compatible hot foil system). Depending on its design, some plates may be used for letterpress and embossing.”
Create this project by applying Blending Solution, Laguna, Cobalt and Everglades alcohol inks to A2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) panel of Yupo paper. Move, shift and blend colors with an air blower or canned air.
Alcohol inks are super fun, just work on a craft mat to protect your surface. Continue to add ink, Blending Solution or 91% Isopropyl Alcohol (if you can find it these days) or even dab up color with a paper towel… just play until you like what you see! I often create a dozen or more panels within one crafty session. So. Much. Fun!
Warm up the Glimmer Hot Foil Unit and place Crafty Sentiments with letters up on heated surface. Once heated through, cover plate with Aura Glimmer Foil, dull side up. Align inked Yupo panel, face down, over Glimmer Plate and then pass platform through Platinum 6 die cutting machine to transfer foil. Slight pressure will do. It really is that simple to add foil accents! Repeat with small sentiment on Pitch Black cardstock.
Trim inked and foiled panel a 1/4″ and adhere with foam tape onto a folded card base.
Thank you for spending a few minutes with me today. Have a fabulous week!
