I think these plates will certainly add a wow factor to any watercolored piece.
I keep it simple and I used Fun Stampers Jurney liquid colors to do some ink smooshing on watercolor paper to then apply the foil.
What a cool concept! Love it!
Oh! As the hot foil looks different in pictures depending on the lighting and the angle you take the picture, I took two different photos so that you can appreciate the shine of “Gold Hot Foil Roll” included in the set.
In the first picture in this post, the foil looks a lot shinier as it was taken right from above the cards with a light source in the left and for the second one I removed the light source and I moved a little bit to the left.
The Glimmer Hot Foil add shine to your projects like no other supply for papercraft and it also a beautiful professional touch.
Watch2 -1/2 -minute video to see how I made these cards.
To bear in mind:
- I’m used the Spellbinders Hot Foil System, Compatible with the Spellbinder 6″ and A4 die-cutting machines, Jane’s Davenport Die Cutting Machine and the Big Shot.
- Once your machine is hot ( red and green light will be on) foiling is a very quick process.
- All you have to is to click on the ” timmer button” and wait for it to stop flashing.
- carefully remove the platform from the heat foil system and run it through your die-cutting machine.
- Hot plates will be “HOT”, use tools to handle the plates on the platform.
- Extra shims of paper will cause over foiling.
- I use a thin piece of paper to protect the plates from getting foiled. Although the hot foil doesn’t damage the plates, I just want to keep them tidy to share videos with you.

That’s all for today.
