Spellbinders | Glimmer of the Month – Abstract Foiled Shapes Cards

I love abstract art. This is something I can stare at for days and always find something new, something I haven’t noticed before. Maybe it’s silly, but I really do enjoy it. When I saw Spellbinders’ February Glimmer of the Month kit – I was immediately inspired and wanted to foil everything and die cut a bunch of those random abstract foiled shapes, just for fun. Because you know me, I love hot foil.

CARD DETAILS

I work for Spellbinders and I make a lot of cards, especially for their monthly Clubs. I don’t often share them on my blog (sometimes I just don’t have enough time, sometimes the designs are not my style), but I really wanted to share the cards I’ve made with this month’ Glimmer kit as I just adore both the kit and cards I’ve made.

In case you are new to Spellbinders and their Clubs, the Glimmer of the Month is a subscription club, it’s a membership. It is available from the Spellbinders website only. This subscription is $22.50 per month, US shipping is included in this cost. Every month there’s a new glimmer plates set delivered to your door along with lots of inspiration from Spellbinders. If you enjoy hot foiling – you’ll enjoy these kits as the designs are always fresh and trendy.

First, I foiled all 3 shapes on a bunch of colors of cardstock from FSJ and Simon. I used the following colors for the most part: Black, Deep Lilac, Grape Fusion, Lavender Fusion, Pretty Amethyst and Tin Pail. I foiled everything in Gold foil and then cut the shapes out using dies included in this month’s kit.

To make the cards I also foiled some background using the same approach and next just layered the foiled and die-cut shapes over the background using glue and foam adhesive. It’s SO EASY!

To make sentiments for these cards I used my Yana’s Sentiments Glimmer plates set and foiled “Happy Birthday” for the black card above and “Thanks” for the purple card below.

I stacked several “thanks” die cuts (I didn’t foil them all, just foiled the top one) and adhered together using glue. This is a pretty delicate die-cut, so it is easier to add dimension to it by stacking several die cuts versus using foam adhesive squares.

Finally, I embellished my cards using FSJ Fashion Gold dots.
