Spellbinders May Glimmer Hot Foil Kit

Hey cardmaking friends, up today we have the Spellbinders May Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month and it’s fabulous.  If you love the Glimmer Hot Foil System you are going to adore these monthly subscription kits.

It’s the Spellbinders Monthly Blog Hop Today with 24 stops and TONS of fabulous inspiration for you around the Monthly Club Kits.

The Spellbinders May Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month

is called Spot on Background & Sentiments.  It has a glimmer plate to add the circle outlines across your card.  You can foil it a couple of times to complete cover a background of a A2 sized card.

Next there is a die to cut out the circles that fit inside the outline circles so you can create any color you wish.

Finally, the foil roll this month is Polished Brass and the kit also includes 9 sentiments to foil and two outline dies to cut them out.

Create an entire card with this kit, or add other glimmer plates, stamps and dies and mix it up.

Many of you asked me for a video on how to Glimmer. I decided to use three different glimmer die sets on one card (I know, major glimmer overkill), but this way I get to really show you how the Glimmer Machine works and how easy it is.

    Very pretty card. I am brand new to glimmer foiling, but so far my attempt to play has been a lot of fun! I still need to perfect my technique but I’m getting there.

    1. Thank you Anna Marie, it does take a little practice to find what you are comfortable with, so have fun with it

  2. Beautiful card. The flowers are stunning! Love the new Glimmer plate. My BDay is next month, so looking to treat myself to a foiler. Thanks for explaining the Glimmer machine. It’s definitely in the running.

    1. THank you Lyn. I also had the gemini machine and I sold it as it makes a very loud beeping noise when it’s heated up, it scared my dogs, so just a heads up on that.
