More Spellbinders July Release!

 Hello!  I'm back with more projects to share using products from the Spellbinders July release!  This release is super awesome, but I can tell you that are even more fabulous products releasing in August!  By the time September rolls around I may have all the Christmas cards I need for the year!   Today I'm sharing cards that I made using products from the Tis the Season collection.  You have already seen one of those products and that is the Mini Christmas Sentiments Glimmer plate set.  If you have a Glimmer system this set is a must have for creating Christmas cards! (Compensated affiliate links used through out this blog post.  When you use my links I earn a small commission at no cost to you.  Thank you for your support!)

This was the first card I made and it uses the new String of Lights Glimmer plate.  I hotfoiled the plate twice on white cardstock using Citrine foil and then I die cut it down with a Spellbinders Essentials rectangle die.  The sentiments were foiled in red and then die cut with a sentiment strip die.  I used the Christmas Blooms die set and die cut the little poinsettias from red cardstock and the leaves and flowers centers from a bright green.  I layered up the flowers and leaves and adhered them to the panel along with the sentiment strips.   I love the clean, modern look that this card has. 

I was having so much fun with the String of Lights plate that I had to make another card with it.  This time I foiled the panel with Aura foil and then die cut it with an Essentials rectangle.  I die cut the pinecones and foliage from the Christmas Blooms die set from white cardstock and rose gold metallic cardstock.  The sentiment was also foiled in Aura.  I layered on all the foliage and then adhered the sentiment strip.   Not your traditional Christmas colors, but I love how this one turned out!

This card came about as I was laying out many of the Mini Christmas sentiments in order to foil them at the same time.  I foiled the sentiments in Aura, gold, black, silver, red and green foils.  Now I have lots of sentiments to use on other cards!  These sentiments were all foiled using Aura although now that I think about it I should have used the Skybright foil as that would have looked amazing with the Glacier cardstock that I used.  I was going to try to foil all the sentiments on a panel and die cut it, but I'm just not that skilled with my foiling so I foiled the sentiments on white cardstock, die cut them and adhered them to a panel of Glacier cardstock.  I then made the poinsettias from the Glacier cardstock, adhered them and added a little light blue gem (from the July Spellbinders card kit) to the center of the flowers. I really like how all the cards turned out, but I think this one is my favorite!

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!

Two fabulous Christmas cards, Rosemary!! So glad I spotted them before I ordered a different mini poinsettia (as if I need another...) because the Spellbinder one looks amazing! Especially love card two with with all glimmered sentiment blocks and the grey flowers!!

More stunning work Rosemary, love the stamps and the foiling, the first card is so pretty with the bright green, I love the monochrome on your second and what a wonderful sentiment to use on this card. Your third is so much work, with the placement of each greeting and is gorgeous.

All three are amazingly gorgeous! Each one is so stunning. I know jealousy is not becoming, but I truly envy your glimmer machine -- you make amazing things, Rosemary

Oh my goodness--you're really making magic with the Spellbinders products, Rosemary! Love every card, but the second may be my favorite--keep going back to look at it again!
