Spellbinders | Glimmering Build a Banner – Fall Thank You Card with September’21 Glimmer of the Month | Video | Blog Hop

Hello! Today I am creating with the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month for September 2021 called Glimmering Build a Banner. This kit is just that, it is designed to create a stunning foiled banner. There’s a combination of hot foil plates and dies to foil the sentiments and cut the banner parts out.

GLIMMER HOT FOIL KIT OF THE MONTH

Spellbinders | Glimmering Build a Banner - Fall Thank You Card with September'21 Glimmer of the Month | Video

Spellbinders Club Kits are available as a part of a monthly Club subscription only. Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month for September 2021 includes the curved glimmer sentiments, the tail and shadow glimmer, the coordinating dies to cut them out, and a roll of foil. What is great about the Spellbinders Club is that there is no minimum commitment, you can join and cancel any time, so if you wanted to get just this one kit and not stay subscribed for the next month you could. Although Spellbinders Kits are quite fantastic and I’ve always been a fan. Sadly, I rarely have the time to share inspiration with these kits on my YouTube channel, but I do try whenever I feel really inspired. I do create a lot of the projects and videos you see on the Spellbinders website and youtube channel and I get to work with nearly every one of their kits. And I will say that they are very well designed.

CARD DETAILS

I’ve found it is easier to cut the paper to smaller rectangles and foil one sentiment at a time on each rectangle piece, rather than foiling several pieces at once on a larger sheet of paper. I’ve foiled 3 of each sentiment mainly because I like it when this banner consists of 3 sections, rather than just one, but, depending on the sentiment you can make it one section, a two-section, a 3 section, a 4 section banner, and so on (and span it across a slimline card).

You can also mix and match the colors and have a multi-color banner, instead of going with just one color. I prefer to foil the sentiment piece on colored cardstock and use plain white for the shadow and tailpieces.

Before I assemble the banner, I like to shape each section slightly to give it a bit of a curve. I simply curve the paper lightly with my fingers. Next, I add a foam square behind the center of the arch to help it keep its dimension. The foam square is just there to provide support so that the banner doesn’t lay flat. Next, I adhere pieces using glue. I add a thin line of glue along the edge of the sentiment section and adhere it onto the tail.

To create the card I’m sharing today I started with an Alabaster panel cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2”. I die-cut a bunch of leaves and berries using Spellbinders Mini Fall Blooms die set. This is a small, but very might set, a Fall addition to the Mini Blooms and Sprigs set released this Spring.

I added lots of colorful leaves, acorns, and berry branches above and below the banner. All were cut from Spellbinders essential cardstock. Next, I added quite a few gems onto the card – I went with green and used them to fill the leaves clusters above and below the banner. In the end, I decided to add some white pen highlights to these, so I used my Sakura Gelly Roll pen in size 8 and added white line highlights to most of the die cuts.

MORE IDEAS

I promised I’d show you other ways to use this banner and here I’ve made several banners using other, noncurved glimmer plates from my stash. When you work with clear stamps, especially the skinny strip stamps, you can bend them slightly to follow the curve of a banner. The glimmer plates are made out of metal, so you can’ curve them, but I’ve found if you use a small enough plate, you can’t quite tell that it doesn’t follow the curve. It looks almost as if it does.

    1. Yana, you are the reason that I purchased my hot foil machine and joined the club. You made it look so easy and the results were stunning. With each month my expertise gets a little better and now I find myself foiling at least once a week. Thanks!

    1. Loved the way you shaped and popped up the glimmer elements – that extra dimension adds so much to an already lovely card. You are a master of glimmering and I appreciate all the informative succinct videos you have made concerning hot foil techniques, equipment and tips! And a big “YEAH” to Spellbinders for the new paper for hot foiling!! (Going in my basket next time I order.)

    1. I not only love this card. I love how you showed us we could use it for other occasions! I love browsing all the Spellbinders blogs. I always come away inspired and also see ways to use the kits I wouldn’t have thought of!

    1. I love all the bright flowers surrounding the sentiment banners! Beautiful designs!

    1. What a lovely card. This banner set makes the card look so “classy”. Thanks for sharing this with us!

    1. Thank you for the tips…I still have trouble with foiling sometimes, trying to foil a lot of sentiments at one time on a bigger piece of paper…doing one at a time like you suggested is actually faster, I spent less time messing with all of them at once! Love your other tips as well. Thanks for your tutorial. I do enjoy foiling and get so excited when it comes out good!

    1. Hi Yana, love your card….. all the details, COLOURS, and dimension is gorgeous. I am determined to master the foiling process, lol. You are so inspiring.

    1. Love the cards with those banners. I also appreciate your sharing of tips, thank you. Just got my small and large die of the month for September today. Super excited!
