My feature for today’s post is this Floral Reflection Collection, a brand new release by Spellbinders for Nov 22.
I have created three cards using three of the products from this release.
With Love Foiled Card
My First card mainly features the GLIMMERING JUST FOR YOU GLIMMER HOT FOIL PLATE & DIE SET FROM THE FLORAL REFLECTION COLLECTION
The beautiful foiled and colored image is my main focus on this card. I foiled the floral design on a Spellbinders White Card-stock with GLIMMER HOT FOIL ROLL – GOLD. This design foiled beautifully on a white card-stock. I then picked a few of my favorite Copic colors in oranges and pinks and started coloring the image. Don’t be surprised if I tell you this was my first time coloring a hot foiled image with alcohol markers. Oh how I loved that I didn’t have to worry about staying in the lines. You know why? It’s because the foiled lines just resisted the color. After the coloring was done I die cut the image using the outline die that is included in this set.
The colored focal image was just so beautiful I wanted a plain background for my card. The reason is I wanted no other distraction on this project. So you can just admire the focal image. But I wanted to add some textures to the otherwise plain and simple background. So, I dry embossed the Spellbinders black card-stock with Spreading Love Embossing Folder which was the Embossing Folder of the month for January 22.
This Hot Foil plate set also contains two sentients, one says “With Love” and the other one says “Just For You”. This set also has two sentiment strip dies to cut the foiled sentiments out. I will be using both of these sentiments on my cards today. For this first card I used the “With Love” . I foiled a bunch of these sentiments in black card-stock and white card-stock with gold hot foil. Usually I like to get quite a few of these ready for future also.
I added a few Spellbinders Fashion Gold Embellishment to decorate my card and to finish it off. Then I moved on to my second card.
Just For You Floral Bunch Card
My next card features two products from the Floral Reflection Collection. ESSENTIAL HEARTS ETCHED DIES FROM THE FLORAL REFLECTION COLLECTION and SEALED BOUQUET ETCHED DIES FROM THE FLORAL REFLECTION COLLECTION
Firstly, I created the focus of this card with a bunch of flowers in a heart. I began by die-cutting some flowers and leaves with Spellbinders Color Essential Card-stocks in pinks and oranges. After that I also die cut a heart with yellow card-stock. I believe this is the second largest from the set. Then I arranged the flowers in a bunch coming out from the bottom of the heart and cutting the long stems off.
I created a background same way as I did for my first card.
I used a “Just for You ” sentiment for this card. I foiled it with gold on black card-stock.
Same as before I added some gold pearls to decorate my card.
My second card is ready.
With Love Floral Heart Card
This card is similar to the second card. The only difference is the arrangement of the flowers and the sentiment. Also the heart i in different color. But this card also features the ESSENTIAL HEARTS ETCHED DIES FROM THE FLORAL REFLECTION COLLECTION and SEALED BOUQUET ETCHED DIES FROM THE FLORAL REFLECTION COLLECTION
I crated a focal image on this card by die-cutting a heart in green card-stock and arranging the flowers in a way that it looks like a pattern. All the flowers are coming in from all corners. Some flowers are added with liquid glue and some are added on foam tape. So there are different levels of dimension. It’s easier to die-cut and assemble a whole lot of flowers and then you come up with ideas to arrange them differently.
All my cards today have the same background. I love how this rainbow of hearts goes so well with all my cards. It takes the ‘deciding on the background’ part away so you can create a lot of cards in no time. Also these cards look like a set.
The sentiment on this card is “with love”. Which is foiled using one of the sentiment from GLIMMERING JUST FOR YOU GLIMMER HOT FOIL PLATE & DIE SET FROM THE FLORAL REFLECTION COLLECTION. Same like the background I like to hot foil a couple of sentiments when I have my GLIMMER HOT FOIL SYSTEM out.
Again I wouldn’t leave this card without embellishment. So, I used the Fashion Gold Embellishment in groups of three on to right and bottom left of this card to finish this card.
I am in love with these cards. Hope you like them too. So, was I able to inspire you to create somewhat similar to what I have created here? Let me know.
