Hello Everyone! My name is Desiree Kuemmerle and I am honored to be back again as a Guest Designer on the Spellbinders Blog today showcasing the Gilded Age Glimmer Collection by Becca Feeken for the Glimmer Hot Foil System! This collection adds a regal and bold accent to any card you create!
The Glimmer Hot Foil System is becoming a major staple in my card making arsenal! I am finding more ways to create with this system every time I turn it on! Wait until you see! LOL
My projects today feature the Gilded Trimmings and Lace Frippery border plates and a wonderful Gilded Nested Rectangle Frame and there is a Die set to match! Part of this collection are new colors that are available in the foil line as well! For my two projects today, I was pulled in two directions… soft and Victorian and bold and regal!
For my first project I chose the Lace Frippery plate and the aura foil on an aqua card stock. Once my image was foiled, I used my paper trimmer to cut my panel down and wrapped organza and satin ribbon around and added a bow on top.
I also used the Gilded Nested Rectangle plates as a backdrop in Blush foil and die cut it using the nested frame dies that are available. Layered these using some fun foam and added my sentiment just above my lace panel.
For my second card I knew I wanted bold and bright colors! I fell in love with the Citrine and Bright Pink foils and used the same colors for my card stock. The Gilded Trimmings has two border plates with a bold design for each and they were perfect for my panels. I foiled my panels using the Bright Pink on my light green card stock and the Citrine foil on bright pink card stock.
I foiled and die cut a smaller frame from the Gilded Nested Rectangle set so it could hold the sentiment chosen. I was seeing a journal card there, LOL…. I used a navy blue card base to set my panels to add to the regal look I was going for! Added a few ivory gems for an added touch.
