Spellbinders | Glimmer Greetings

Hello there, today I have two cards to share with you using the Spellbinders Glimmer Greetings Collection. A lot of the release is Christmas/holiday themed but quite a lot of it can be used all year round too, I think. I love the arches and diamonds in particular.

My cards today focus mainly on the new Essential Arched and Diamond Etched Dies, as well as the fabulous Merry Glimmer Sentiments but please note that there are solid foil plates to match the arches and diamonds. There are also other foil plates that work perfectly with these shapes too. 

For my first card, I started off by die cutting one of the Spellbinders Essential Diamond Etched Dies from Spellbinders Raindrop Cardstock. Using Ink Blending Brushes, I blended on Distress Inks in Prize Ribbon, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot around the edges. I popped it up with another die cut and then adhered it to an A2 white card base where I embossed a larger diamond die in the middle. 

I then die cut lots of flowers and foliage using the Spellbinders Holiday Blooms Etched Dies, with the pine fronds, small holly leaves and bow from the Spellbinders Parcel & Post Christmas Decorations Etched Dies using Spellbinders Cardstock. The flowers were assembled and adhered with Bearly Art Glue and thin foam tape. 

I took the sentiments from the Spellbinders Glimmer Greetings Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set and foiled them on to Hammermill Cardstock using Spellbinders Matte Gold Glimmer Hot Foil Roll. They were die cut using the coordinating dies and then popped up with an additional two layers of die cuts for dimension. They were added to the card using thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a Spellbinders Gold Essentials Gem to the centre of the poinsettia. 

For my second card, I started off by die cutting two Spellbinders Essentials Arches Etched Dies from white cardstock. I kept one intact and then with the other, I die cut it further using the Spellbinders Color Block Scenic Scape Etched Dies to create a snowbank. On the intact one, I added ink blending using brushes and Distress Oxide Inks. I used (top to bottom) Chipped Sapphire, Shaded Lilac and Kitsch Flamingo

I then added snow splatter with Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White Paint before setting aside to dry. Once dry, I adhered the snowbank at the bottom and then adhered it to an A2 white card base. I die cut Spellbinders Chill Bear Etched Dies from Spellbinders Cardstock in Snowdrift, Alabaster, Onyx, Pink Sand and Wild Berry for the scarf. He was assembled and adhered with Bearly Art Glue

He was then adhered to the card using thin foam tape. I took the sentiments from the Spellbinders Glimmer Greetings Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set and foiled them on to Hammermill Cardstock using Spellbinders Silver Glimmer Hot Foil Roll. They were then popped up with another layer of die cuts and adhered to the card. I finished off with snowflakes from the Chill Bear set with Spellbinders Silver Color Essentials Gems added to the centres and Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay Pen on the scarf.

I thought the arch die looked kind of like a snow globe! You could create so many scenes with it being that but it is also just a lovely shape, as are the diamonds. Thank you so much for stopping by today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a lovely day! 


  1. These care are absolutely stunning Michelle! On the floral card, I just love that gorgeous blend behind the diamond and the gorgeous spray of flowers to the left - so pretty! The second card is magical - amazing ink blend and all those really pretty details like the snow splatter and sparkle pen make this a super special card. Inspirational as always! xx
