Hello, friends! I am excited to share some cards that I made using new products from Spellbinders. As you may know, the 10th of each month is when Spellbinders releases new products, and this month features some fabulous collections! My cards also feature a couple products that came out last month.


Today is the last day of a big sale that Spellbinders is having. You save $25 off your $125 purchase! The sale goes through 04/11/2024 11:59 PM PST. No code is needed – the $25 will be deducted in the cart once you add $125 or more. Note that this sale does not include club memberships. This is a great sale because it’s not exclusive to certain things, like some of their typical sales are. It’s a great time to stock up on things like Spellbinders card stock, which isn’t normally included in their other sales. And, did you know that Spellbinders also carries patterned paper from companies like Doodlebug and Paper Rose? It’s also a great time to get a hot foil machine or the BetterPress System if you’ve been on the fence about trying either of those. 

Note: all supplies are linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this blog post.

For my first card, I used the new Glimmering Buttercups Hot Foil Plate and Stencil Bundle. I first hot foiled the plate with matte gold foil onto white card stock. The stencil set, which includes 5 stencils, makes coloring this image a breeze! I used Pinkfresh Studio inks in the following colors: Sweet Mustard, Marigold, Clementine, Sparkling Rose, Raspberry Bliss, Grassy Knoll, and Olive. I kept layering on the different colors for the flowers, and although I wasn’t sure about it at first, I just kept going! I love how they turned out. If you prefer to color the flowers yourself (or not color them at all), the hot foil plate is also sold separately. 

I created the shaped card using the largest die from the Mirrored Arch Labels set. I just cut out the image with the die and then I cut out a heavy weight piece of white card stock with the same die. I scored a hinge at the top of the white piece, attached some Scor-tape to the hinge and connected the front to it. 

For the sentiment I used the new Mother’s & Father’s Day Sentiments Press Plate. This is a BetterPress plate that comes with a matching die. You stamp all the sentiments at once, and the die cuts out all four sentiments at once! And if you don’t have the BetterPress System, just do what I do and hot foil them! You can use BetterPress plates the same way as a hot foil plate. I hot foiled the sentiment with the same matte gold foil that I used for the flowers.

I made this second card a few weeks ago and forgot to include it in a blog post, so here are the details! I used the Mirrored Arch Nested Sprigs Press Plate and hot foiled it with Cobalt Blue hot foil. I colored in the flowers with a mix of red and blue Copic markers. I then used the Mirrored Arch Labels to create my focal point. This really is one of my favorite nesting die sets now! I think it is such a great shape to use some of your larger sentiment stamps with, especially when you don’t have matching dies for those larger stamps. In this case, I chose a stamp from my stash that does come with a matching die, but I think it fit perfectly onto the Mirrored Arch. The stamp set that I used is from Poppy Stamps, and it’s called  Say It Big. Perfect name, right??

I hope these cards put a smile on your face today. As always, I appreciate you visiting my blog.

Wishing you all a crafty day,

    1. Thank you for the reminder to add the paper that I use to my supply list – I always forget. I use Hammermill 100lb Premium Color paper and never have any problems, especially with Spellbinders hot foil plates. It is now linked on my supply list, so you can see which paper I’m talking about. I’m sorry that you gave up, but I hear you. I have some plates in my stash that don’t give good results, but they are not from Spellbinders. I really think that Spellbinders makes the best hot foil plates – maybe because it’s their hot foil machine, so they get it right!
