Spellbinders May 2020 Club Inspiration Blog Hop

Hi Stampers and happy Friday! Can you believe we are on day 71 of quarantine here in PA? I am so excited to be participating in the Spellbinders May Club inspiration blog hop. As always, Loads of inspiration from some amazing paper crafters!

Let’s get to the cards! How fun are these?

I am sharing another project created from The Spellbinders Glimmer kit of the month. (check out my 1st one here) I have so much fun with this kit because it always is a little different than traditional stamping.

I used black foil, the glimmer hot foil machine and white, black, Pretty Amethyst and Pool Play cardstock.

The flower accents are part of the Glimmer kit of the Month and are cut in coordinating cardstock.



To celebrate this release,Spellbinders is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 3 lucky blog readers – selected from the comments on the Spellbinder’s blog. Hop along for additional chances to win. Giveaway closes on Sunday, May 31st, 11:59 pm EDT. The winner will be announced in the blog hop post the following Tuesday. The winner is responsible for shipping cost, duties and taxes.

Giveaway Number 2:

You can win a $25 Spellbinders Gift Certificate! That’s right in addition to the above, you get another opportunity to win! I will draw a winner from all the comments to receive a $25 Spellbinders Gift certificate. Feel free to leave a comment!

    What amazing color combinations and modern edge your cards have. You always astonish me with your compositions. That matting and the color choice interplaying draws the viewers’ focus to the foiled sentiment! Using black foil was a great choice and more effective I think, then using a lighter (gold or silver) foil. The mark of a sharp eye and experience. Enjoyed this presentation.
