Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Love (+Giveaway)

by | Jun 15, 2020 | Blog, Copic Markers, Foiling, Giveaway, Happy Thoughts, Quick & Simple, Spellbinders

Hi, ho, hello! I’m just a popping in right quick today to share a Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil quickie and mention a couple of great things happening over at Spellbinders. First, they’ve got a Summer Super Sale going on where some items are up to 50% off, plus there are incredible clearance deals. This girl loves a sale! My husband laughs and asks me to stop saving him so much money, haha – not a chance! Second, Spellbinders has a Glimmer Hot Foil Sweepstakes going on where you can win a $420 prize pack – including a Glimmer Hot Foil System, Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine, and Glimmer Hot Foil Plates! I’d say that’s worth a sec to click through and fill out the very basic entry form! 

P.S. If you’d rather not play the odds of winning the sweepstakes, the Glimmer Hot Foil System and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine are both on sale!

Recreate this project by hot foiling a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ white cardstock panel with Aura (a most awesome holographic foil) over the Hand Drawn Wave Glimmer Hot Foil Plate. Hot foil the Sending Love sentiment with the same foil, but on black cardstock. 

TIP: a Tombow Mono Sand Eraser is great for getting rid of any overfoiling. I didn’t have any overfoiling with this project, but I’ve gotten to know my machine, my cardstock thickness and to trim the foil as near to the size needed without being so skimpy that it is a hassle to align. Too much pressure when passing through the die cutting machine to emboss and transfer the foil design will cause overfoiling every time. Just a little pressure will do!

Color a select few rainbows with Copic markers being cautious to avoid coloring over the foil. If by chance that does happen, I have had good luck removing the color – but not the foiling – with a Copic colorless blender. Highly pigmented colors, like red, could stain though.

Trim white panel down a smidge and adhere flat to a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ Pebble cardstock panel. Pop up black sentiment with foam tape. Adhere finished card to folded card base.

Copic Colors:

Pink: RV17, RV14

Red: R29, R22

Yellow: Y08, Y00

Green: YG23, YG11

Aqua: BG45, BG000


Giveaway: I am giving away a Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Plate similar to the design I’ve used in today’s project, the Woven version. I have a duplicate and I’d love to pass it on! Enter to win by commenting on this post and I will contact the winner and post here in a few days sharing who that is. Good luck! ***Winner is Karen H!***

Thank you for stopping by. Don’t forget about the sales and sweepstakes over at Spellbinders! Have a beautiful week!

xo, Janette
