A Day For Daisies - A Special Flower

 

Happy Saturday!

Today, I have a birthday card for our grand-niece to share.  It uses a digital image from a Day for Daisies - A Special Flower.  I'm excited to say A Day For Daisies web-shop is back up.  I had posted in May and it was down for maintenance. 

I colored the image with Copic markers and paired it with Basic Grey "Kneehighs" patterned papers I found in the cupboard.

Hot Foil - Butterfly Birthday

 Happy Saturday!

Today, I have another birthday card I made with 2 Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil plates - Butterflies and Birthday Hugs & Wishes.  

This card is my version of a card I saw using the Glimmer Butterflies set online.
  I watched a lot of YouTube videos to learn how to use the Hot Foil Machine, before diving in.  

The videos really paid off.  I was able to get great results right away.  It also gave me a list of items I needed...like the best cardstock to use, best cutter for foil and tips for lining up the foil plate so it is straight.  Plus, it featured these 2 plates which I ended up buying so I could make this card.

I used a variety of foils - Spellbound 4 pack 

    The machine came with gold and silver.  I added "skybright" which is a light blue also.

The white cardstock is Hammermill 110lb weight cardstock.

Hot Foil - Honeycomb & Bee Birthday

 Happy Saturday!

Today, I have a card using hot foil.  It uses a couple sets - Honeycomb & Bees is a set I found on Amazon. The sentiment is a Yana Glimmer Spellbinders set. 


I used gold foil and Spellbinders Glimmer Machine.  I've been really happy with the machine, really easy to use especially with the Spellbinders Platinum Die Cut Machine. machines vary, but I've been lucky no extra shims needed to get a good impression. If you are unfamiliar with Hot Foil, it came out a few years ago.  It uses both heat and pressure to transfer the foil to the cardstock. 

I use Hammermill 110 lb weight cardstock for Hot Foil, it is inexpensive very smooth and the transfer is very clean and crisp.

The outer border is gold metallic paper cut with a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle Scalloped Frame die

I colored the flower and some parts of the honeycomb with Copic markers.
