Spellbinders | Partial Foiling May 2020 Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month. Video + Blog Hop + Giveaway (Closed)

Hello, crafters. In this video, I’ll show you how to stretch your Glimmer plates using the partial foiling technique. I am using 2 similar but slightly different products from Spellbinders – the Especially For You glimmer plate and Thanks a Million glimmer plate (May 2020 Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month).

CARD DETAILS

Horizontal foiling featuring these two products, Especially For You glimmer plate and Thanks a Million glimmer plate (May 2020 Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month) isn’t hard, but it is a bit tricky. There are 2 ways to do this – first is an easier one, but you’ll need to trim your panel down significantly; the second method, which is a bit more difficult, but still doable and gives a better result.

The idea is to foil Thanks plate 3 times, so you foil each row once. The For You plate needs to be foiled 2 times – each row once.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Place glimmer plate on the background, centered. Use a ruler and a pencil and add guidelines for where you need to place the letters to create a horizontally foiled word.

2. Use my hinge method to tape the glimmer plate in place. I’ve shared this method many times in my previous glimmer videos, here’s a good one to learn the hinge method. The key here is to cut your foil exactly to size so that it only covers the part of the glimmer plate you want to foil. It only matters that you cut it to size for the middle row. You can have your foil slightly larger for the top and bottom rows as you’ll be able to adjust its placement. Add your foil to the middle row making sure it is not overlapping the top or bottom row, flip glimmer plate back into place. Use another piece of low tack tape to tape everything in place.

The hinge method is basically creating a hinge using low tack tape to be able to tape the die in place, flip it away from the paper, add foil, and flip back into place.

3. Next, follow Glimmer machine instructions and foil. We’ve foiled the middle part – letters AN.

4. Next, use the pencil lines on the paper and position the letters TH, so the 1st row on the panel, tape it down using hinge method, slide your foil making sure it does not overlap the letters from the middle row. This is the trickiest part – foil is hard to cut to a specific size, so this is something that might take you the longest. Again, take it to your glimmer and foil.

5. Repeat the same steps to foil the last two letters. Position the plate on the panel using pencil lines as a guide. And tape in place using low tack tape. Add your foil, make sure it does not overlap the letters in the middle row. Use another piece of low tack tape to tape everything down and again, foil.

This takes a bit longer, but it is well worth the effort. I also love that colorful background, I think it helps the foiling pop.

This glimmer plate comes with additional skinny strip sentiments to add to the word Thanks. You have several options – A Million, For All You Do, You are the best, for your kindness. I picked one that reads For Your Kindness for this card. There are also glimmer plates to foil a flower and a leaf and also coordinating dies.

With the foiling complete, I foam mounted my background to the card base. The card base measures 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 “ and the panel is 8 x 3 3/4”. Next, I assembled the flowers and leaves. I die-cut additional flower layers from pink cardstock, to go along with the pink ink on the background. I used glue and foam adhesive squares and adhered my die cuts onto the card. I stamped a sub sentiment above the foiling as it felt like that part of the card was a bit empty. I stamped one that reads “You’re in My Heart” and I used black ink for stamping.

I used metallic gold jewels from Pretty Pink Posh to dress up this card and add a bit more bling to the background, I scattered the jewels in between the florals and the foiled letters and that finished my project.

    1. So beautiful- artsy and classy! I have a Spellbinder’s glimmer plate on my birthday wish list! I actually have some foil and plates (purchased from Spellbinder’s store) , but no machine yet! Thanks for the wonderful inspiration. Looking forward to watching more of your videos.

    1. I am excited to see you blog post on the layour of the Thanks for this card with it going straight across I say the earlier post and wanted to see how it was done.

    1. I just purchased the Glimmer Hot Foil System and can”t wait for my dies to come from Spellbinders so I can make cards for my 89 year old second cousin. She sends out about 35 cards a month to all her friends. She loves my cards so I thought that if I had a glimmer hot foiler they would just make the cards so much nicer. I try to make her 30 to 40 cards every 2 to 3 months. I love all the cards that everyone makes. I just wish that I had more time to just do cards and crafts every day. Everyone’s cards are just beautiful and awesome. Thanks for the chance to win. Love the Thanks card, I joined the foil club so that I could do that lovely card. Thanks for all inspiration , your cards are awesome.

    1. I am not a member of any of the Spellbinders clubs but I always love and buy Spellbinder products. Your cards are full of glorious color and I love the foil glimmer!

    1. Beautiful! Your mastery of Glimmer Foil looks so effortless! I so appreciate the easy to follow instructions. Of course I also love your artistry in color and design. Thanks for keeping it fresh! Deb

    1. So pretty! I have to say I think I really like this Glimmer die in the horizontal orientation–a little more work, but worth it! Thanks Yana!
