Hi, my name is Natasha Vacca and I am so excited to be a guest designing on the Spellbinders blog today! I have had an amazing time working with the new release – Spring into Glimmer Collection. I fell in love with everything in this new collection and it was a pure joy to work with! You can also find me on my personal blog. I would love it if you stopped by there too!
Glimmer Edge Butterflies
For my first card I am using 3 new glimmer die sets from this beautiful collection: Glimmer Edge Butterflies, Glimmer Be Bold Sentiments, and Glimmer Edge Flowers. I love combining sets! I started by selecting my colored cardstocks, I chose a pink and teal color combo for this card. I set up my Spellbinders Glimmer machine and had a lot of fun foiling! I used foil from the Essentials Metallics Variety pack. I foiled 3 butterflies, as well as leaf images, and a bold sentiment. I then die-cut each of these using the coordinating dies included in the set. I also die-cut a second butterfly to place underneath each of the foiled butterflies.
Once all the images were foiled and die-cut I started to work on my background. I used the Spellbinders Plaid Company Embossing Folder and once dry embossed I trimmed the panel with the Essentials Rectangle die. Next, I die cut some white leaves from both the Mini Blooms & Sprigs and the Simply Perfect Layered Blooms.
To complete the card I adhered the embossed background panel to an A2 card base. Then I adhered all the foiled images using foam adhesive and liquid glue. I added the sentiment and floral images and my card is complete! I fell in love with these butterflies! They are so gorgeous!

Glimmer Edge Flowers
For my second card, I am using the Glimmer Edge Flowers as the main focal point for my card. I started my second card by choosing my color scheme for my card. I chose a deep maroon, navy blue, and peach. Then I worked on doing all the foiling! These Glimmer Edge Flowers are just beautiful! I used Matte Gold Foil for today’s project. I foiled the flowers, the butterflies, leaves, as well as the sentiment. Once everything was foiled, I die-cut all the images with the coordinating dies included in the set. Then I adhered the floral images together using liquid glue and set them aside.
Next, I started to work on my background. I used the Spellbinders Sun rays Embossing Folder for my background. I embossed a card panel using my platinum and then trimmed the panel using the essential rectangles die.
To complete the card I adhered the embossed background panel to an A2 card base. Then I adhered all the foiled images using foam adhesive and liquid glue. I added the sentiment and floral images and my card is complete! I love these bold flowers! They are so pretty!

Foiled Birthday Card
For my 3rd card, I had so much fun creating a foiled birthday card! I used several glimmer sets in this collection to create today’s card! I started by doing all my foiling, using Champagne foil. I foiled the Glimmer Edge Butterflies, Flowers, Sentiment Banner, as well as the Scattered Dot Pattern. Once everything was foiled, I die-cut images using the coordinating dies and set these aside.
Next, I die-cut flowers from the Mini Blooms and Sprigs collection. I then adhered the floral images together and added a gem to the center. Then I trimmed the Scattered Dot Pattern with the Essential Rectangles die set.
To complete the card I worked on the card layout. I adhered the dot background to an A2 card base. Next, I adhered the sentiment banners to the card panel. I love these sentiment banners – they are just so beautiful! I used a combination of liquid glue and foam tape. I then adhered the flowers, leaves, and butterfly. This completes my 3rd card.
