Hello, friends! Im so excited to be able to share the June Glimmer Kit from Spellbinders! If you love foiling with the Glimmer System, this subscription is fantastic. Each month, you get a roll of foil along with some new and unique glimmer plates. This month, the plates are these beautiful flowers that also come with coordinating dies! Not only can you glimmer the flowers, but you can perfectly die cut them to use as embellishments and focal points!
I started my cards today by glimmering my flowers from the JUNE GLIMMER KIT. Then, I ran them through my SPELLBINDERS PLATINUM 6 to die cut them out. Once I had a good number of flowers, I set them aside to work on the rest of my cards.
I grabbed my BARN WALL EMBOSSING FOLDER from Fun Stampers Journey to emboss a panel of white cardstock. Then, I die cut a circle from the center of the embossed panel. I planned to use both the circle and the frame to create two cards.
I then used my FRESH FOLIAGE stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey to stamp and cut out the greenery for my cards. I arranged the green branches along with the foiled flowers to embellish the frame and circle on my cards.
I adhered all the pieces down using a mix of foam tape and NUVO DELUXE GLUE.
I added the sentiments from several other Fun Stampers Journey stamp sets that I have in my stash. The “we rise up by lifting others” is from the GOOD PLACES stamp set, and the “thankful for you” is from THANKFUL FRIENDS. Its great to be able to mix and match the stamp sets you have on hand and get more use out of them!
I was able to make two cards at once using this same style on both, but making slight changes so they are both unique. This is a great way to make multiple cards to give as a set, or just to have more on hand to send out! You could even make the cards, then wait to add a sentiment until just before you mail it out, so that you can make these cards fit any occasion!
I hope you enjoyed a look at June’s Glimmer kit! These flowers are so pretty, and can be used in many different ways, with many colors of foils. You can even use a gentle medium to color these flowers, such as watercolor or ink blending! So many possibilities!
Thanks for stopping by today, and happy crafting!
Until next time,
