Hi there, for today I made a couple of projects using dies and glimmer plates from the new and absolutely gorgeous Spellbinders Expressions of Faith.
EXPRESSIONS OF FAITH
This small collection really touched my heart. It only includes the three new products below but these are very versatile.
- Faith Glimmer Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set
- Kaleidoscope Cross Etched Dies
- Gleaming Cross Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set
I’m totally loving the sentiments. They are perfect to make encouragement cards.
DIE CUT CROSS CARD
For this card, I used Kaleidoscope Cross Etched Dies .
First, I die cut the pieces for the cross out of grey cardstock and white smooth cardstock.
Then overlap the pieces and I glued in place.
Using Nestabilities Essential Label Etched dies, I die cut a background panel out of withe smooth cardstock 300 grams.
Once the background was ready, I glued the cross over it.
The cross is beautiful itself but I added small die-cut flowers as decorative touch and also to add a hint of colour.
The little flowers and leaves were made using Ornamental Floral card – Small Die of the month July 2020, still available here.
To add colours to the flowers and leaves, I simply applied water-based inks and paint over watercolour paper. I allowed to dry and then I die cut them.
SPELLBINDERS HOT FOIL SYSTEM
HOT FOILED DIE CUT CROSS
Using this products I applied Silver and Brass hot foils on 300 grams smooth cardstock.
Once I foiled the pieces, I simply die cut them using coordinating dies and I assembled the cross.
Next, I foam mounted the foiled cross on a panel I previously embossed using the Barn Wall embossing folder.
To add a decorative element, I die cut a frame using Essentials Rectangles die set.
I added a sentiment made using black cardstock, silver foil, and a glimmer plate from Faith Glimmer Sentiments.
