Spellbinders Expressions of Love Collection

Hello!  I'm popping in to share a couple of cards that I made with some products from the recently released Expressions of Love Collection from Spellbinders.  First up is a card that I made with the Scattered Hearts Background Glimmer hot foil plate.    This is my first time using one of the Glimmer plates that you can use to foil a background and it was so easy!  I cut my gold foil to the correct size using my Spellbinders quick trimmer (such a handy tool!).   The foiling plate is not widen enough to foil an entire A2 sized card so you must do it twice, but, again, it is so easy to do using my Glimmer Hot Foil system!  Once my foiling was done I die cut the panel with the largest die in the Spellbinders Essentials Rectangle die.  I then went through my Spellbinders dies to find some to work with my panel.  I settled on this beautiful layered flower die that came in the Spellbinders Stay Wild card kit.  The ornate little panel that the flower sits on is a die from the Vintage Mementos card kit.  The flower was die cut from white and gold metallic cardstock and then layered together.  The leaves were die cut from the same gold metallic cardstock.  The panel was cute from a light aqua and stamped with a sentiment from the stamp set that comes in the Love the Moment card kit.   I adhered the main panel to a light aqua cardstock base and then layered up all the different elements.  Love how this card turned out!

The second card was created using the Scattered Hearts Background Glimmer plate and red foil, as well as elements from the Sunday Sunset Drive die set.  I'm going to be honest and tell you that I had a hard time coming up with an idea for this car.  That is due to the fact that I do not own any of the dies that this set was created to work with.   But I took it as a challenge and I think I came up with something that works.  Let me know what you think!   There are several dies that work with another die to create little plates to put on the back of the little car from the Sunday Drive die set (the one I don't own).  I used the die that says I heart you and cut it along with the matching die from white cardstock twice and adhered them together.  I foiled the Scattered Hearts background in red foil and then die cut it down with the second largest Essentials Rectangle die.  I used the smallest die in the Essentials Rectangle set to cut some red cardstock for my little die cut sentiment to sit on.  I cut additional rectangles from white cardstock and adhered those behind the red one for more stability.  The sentiment was then adhered to the rectangle.  Aqua cardstock was die cut with the second smallest rectangle and the sentiment panel was adhered to that and then that panel was adhered to the foiled hearts panel.  More red cardstock was die cut with the largest Essentials Rectangle die, the other panels layered on top and it was adhered to a light aqua cardstock base.  I finished up by using some foliage and flower dies from the set to cut light aqua and red cardstock to make my little floral arrangement underneath the sentiment.  Despite the difficulty I had I'm very happy with how this card turned out.  Going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge

Your gold foiling card is exquisite Rosemary, love the aqua colour, so beautiful. Your "car" card is so clever and yes I can see the "sticker" attached to a car, great idea and beautiful too.

Just love both cards, Rosemary! Great use of the plate to foil your backgrounds! And what a great idea to use the sentiment panel only from the drive set!!
