spellbinders may stamp of the month

 Hello friends!  I'm stopping in with two cards that I made using the Spellbinders May clear stamp of the month.  The clear stamp of the month is a subscription club just like the card kit, etc.   Just click here to check out the CSOM club subscription.    This month the CSOM features lots of great sentiments and some small floral images that you can use to create borders and backgrounds on your cards.  I created two cards with the stamp set.  

For this first card I decided to do some hotfoiling with my Glimmer.  The new cardstock from Spellbinders is perfect for hotfoiling.  I did some tone on tone foiling using teal foil on the new Teal Topaz cardstock.   It is so pretty in real life!  I stamped the sentiment from the CSOM using teal ink and then die cut it with a Spellbinders classic nestabilities circle die.  The foiled border was created using the April Glimmer kit and then the border die cut with one of the dies from the April Glimmer kit.   This piece was then die cut with a Spellbinder essential rectangle die.  I then foiled the flower and leaves with the teal foil, die cut them with the matching dies and adhered everything on the card front as you see.   Going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes. 

This card started with the panel you see in the background.  I had foiled this panel several months ago using Scattered Heart Background glimmer plate using black foil.  Yep... that is back foil!  Looks like stamping doesn't it?  I die cut the panel with the largest essentials rectangle die and adhered it to my light gray cardstock base.  I didn't want to totally cover up all the fun foiling so I decided to heat emboss the sentiment on vellum using black embossing powder.  I also added one of the floral border images above and beneath the sentiment.  I then die cut that with the second largest essentials rectangle die.  I used rolled up Zots glue dots (medium size works the best for this) placed behind the embossing to adhere the panel to scattered hearts panel.  I think this would make a nice sympathy card. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!

Wow--2 fabulous cards, Rosemary! LOVE the teal border, images--everything! I need to use that color more often. The black, white, gray card is so creative & beautiful! I didn't even know black foil existed--so cool!

Both so pretty, Rosemary! The border die on the first one reminds me of a grand piano. Hmm, maybe there's a card idea for you lol! Love the sentiment on your second card to bits!

OH! These are truly gorgeous Rosemary, I love the shaped die on your first one to show off the foiling and lovely flowers and sentiment. The second sentiment with the heart background is so lovely with the beautiful sentiment. Love both.
