Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil kit of the Month April 2019 | Post #2

June 06, 2019

Hi everyone, I'm loving this kit so much that I made another project to share extra ideas with you using the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil kit of the Month - June 2019.

Check my previous blog post using this kit here.

I also made a 4-minutes video gathering all the projects I made using the kit just to show you the products in action.

So while trying different card designs, I also tried different layouts using different glimmer hot plates included in the kit and  I also wanted to share ideas using different colours.

Although these cards were very hard to photograph I did my best to show you the hot foil shine and delicate detail produced by the Glimmer Hot Plates included in the kit.

How I do it 

  • I turned on my   Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System
  • I allowed the machine to heat up. This takes 3 - 5 minutes.
  • I place the plates on the platform facing up
  • Next, I placed the hot fol with the shiny side facing down or facing the glimmer plate
  • I place the piece of paper I wanted to foil and I added a piece of paper on top to add pressure
  • I placed the Glimmer foil shim and spacer pads and I pressed the timer button.
  • Once the green light stops flashing the machine is ready to go. I found that if I allow 30 secs 1 minute after the light stop flashing I get perfect foiled images.
  • I then run the glimmer hot foil system platform on the Platinum die cutting machine.

I  die cut the foiled images using coordinating dies and I used Faber Castel Polychomos to add colour to the foiled images.

To embellish, I used Nuvo drops.

Here is a visual of the glimmer hot plates and dies included in the kit. a total of 12 pieces ( 6 glimmer plates and 6 coordinating dies)
