Introducing Glorious Glimmer by Becca Feeken and Spellbinders Glimmer Foil System - Elegant Rectangle and Flourished Square - See full supply list at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=34393

Hello there sweet friends and Happy Thanksgiving!   You still have a day or so to leave a comment to be in the running to win an Amazing Paper Grace die on this post——->HERE.   Thank you so much for stopping by the blog hop we kicked off on Tuesday to cover the Spellbinders Glimmer Foil System and as promised I wanted to pop in and answer some questions I’ve received in emails about the Foil System.  For those who are new here, I’m not a stranger to foil but I’ve finally found a way to get consistent results (without having to buy a printer and rely on the quality of toner).  The new Foil System is a staple on my desk and will be for some time to come.

My Card Today

My card today is simple, just foil plates from Glorious Glimmer and dies with an added sentiment.  I’ve used Glorious Glimmer Elegant Rectangle and Flourished Square Die from Romancing the Swirl.  No bow, can you believe it?  Yep. All that is to say that Glimmer Plates are just like rubber stamps except they are made out of metal which queues them up for additional uses like Letterpress and Deep Embossing.  I’m really so smitten with this machine and have already developed plates deep into 2019 that are pretty darn cool if I must say so myself.

Without further ado, let me get to some of the questions I’m seeing again and again:

Foil System Questions

  1.  Do you need a Die Cutting Machine in order to glimmer?
    Answer:  Yes, you need a die cut machine with the same tall aperture it takes to cut steel rule dies.  The perfect pairing is the Spellbinders Platinum and Platinum 6 however there are other die cut machines on the market that are compatible.  For a list, check the Spellbinders website.
  2. How does the Glimmer Machine work?
    Answer:  The Glimmer Machine works with heat and pressure in an amount that is available with a slower pass through the Spellbinders Platinum and Platinum 6.  The spacing in the Platinum with the combination of Glimmer spacer plate and Glimmer shim give the exact thickness needed to transfer to the foil.
  3. If I add on more and more shims and more and more heat, will my transfers be better?
    Answer:  The “s correct spacing actually feels loose and doesn’t have the same binding feel as when you die cut.  That is because too much pressure will over transfer foil as will too much heat.  The Glimmer Base along with the Spacer Plate and Shim are calibrated for the optimum transfer.
  4. Can I use other foils with the Glimmer Machine?
    Answer:  The Glimmer Machine is designed to work with “heat” transfer foils while other machines may be designed to work with toner to fuse foil to paper.  As long as you are using a “heat” transfer foil you should be okay, but I recommend testing it out before investing in other foils.
  5. Do the Glimmer Plates cut like dies?
    Answer:  No, the glimmer plates are just like stamps except they are metal.  They can also be used for letterpress, stamping them with ink and deep embossing.  Many of my sets include matching dies so that you can cut out what you have glimmered.
  6. What comes with the Glimmer Machine?
    Answer:  The Glimmer Machine comes with a dock and base plate as well as an electrical cord.  (There is a US version and a UK version of this machine).  Inside there is a silicone mat, a magnetic tweezer tool, a glimmer plate, a set of 2 foils, and clear Glimmer Space Plate, an opaque Glimmer Shim and an instruction booklet that outlines all of the materials you can glimmer on and which shims are needed for those materials.
  7.  Why isn’t the shim attached to the Glimmer Base with a hinge and can I simply use my Platinum 6 shim?
    Answer:  In my opinion, not having the shim attached gives you a lot of latitude to glimmer different materials.  Plus if anything happens to your shim, you don’t have to replace the whole base,  just the shim.  No, you cannot use the Platinum 6 shim, they are different thicknesses.
  8. How large is the Glimmer Machine Rubber Surface:
    Answer:  That gridded surface (1/2″) increments, is very handy.  It will accommodate a plate that is 5-3/4″ x 6-3/4″.That does it!  If you have any more questions, don ‘t hesitate to ask!!

    Hi Becca,
    I love your new shimmer foiling system stamps. I have purchased some, but am yet to use them, as I missed out in the foiling system machine. There first run was so popular they ran out! I couldn’t buy it online direct from the states as the power cable won’t match out power points in Australia .
    Happy to see you’re creating and keeping yourself busy while you wait for your life to get back to normal.
    Keep your beautiful creations coming, you truly are an inspiration to many!
    Wishing you & your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving xReplyCancel

  • Suzann AndersonNovember 22, 2018 - 4:13 pm

    Happy Thanksgiving Becca. Thank you for answering some questions about the Glimmer plates. I purchased the system by the original creator of the hot foil system. Sounds like the Spellbinders version is an improved upon one. However, your Glimmer plates are very high quality and give better results than other brands.ReplyCancel

  • Janet KircherNovember 22, 2018 - 4:18 pm

    Hello Becca,

    You continue to amaze me with your beautiful cards. I love the new foiling system so much that I just had to buy one. Can’t wait until it is sent out.

    Shhhh, it’s a Christmas gift from my husband to me.

    Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!ReplyCancel

    Gorgeous!! What an elegant look you have achieved.
    Thanks for answering so many questions, Becca, but I do have one more. In your second photo it looks like there is a lacy bit of die cut swirl under everything. Is that die cut from your gold poster board that you like to use, or is that another glimmer piece? Need more info…..
    Still praying for 850 and recovery from the hurricane. Hope you’re recovering and getting into whatever the new “normal” will be for you.ReplyCancel

    • Becca FeekenNovember 23, 2018 - 7:22 am

      Hi Chelsea,

      The lacy piece I used underneath is a die cut from gold mirror board. It’s layered with Flourished Square from Romancing the Swirl :-) Thanks for your prayers dear friend, this is quite the journey!!ReplyCancel

Introducing Glorious Glimmer Elegant Square by Becca Feeken and Spellbinders - see complete supply list at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=34358
All that glimmers may well be gold!  Hi there, today we are sharing with you a wonderful new tool – Spellbinders Glimmer Foil System and I’m introducing a new collection, Glorious Glimmer Classic Plates.  In a nutshell, it’s an accessory to your die cut machine that will let you add foil motifs to materials from paper to vellum to leather to wood to fabric and more.  The machine employs heat and pressure along with metal stamps (Glimmer Plates) to transfer foil to a surface – like cardstock.  The Glimmer Plates work just like rubber stamps and in addition to transferring foil, they can transfer ink, they can letterpress and they can deep emboss.  Some of the sets feature both plates and dies!

Adding layers of gold or colored foil motifs creates an extra dimension to the sweet cards you send in life. This is a game changer for elegant cards!  Crafters are finally able to get that professional printer look, but at home and for way less than engaging a printer to do foil.  I like to think that the glimmer plates will make instant backgrounds and borders, but now there’s a new thing to include in your pretty layers!

About Glorious Glimmer

I jumped at the opportunity to create a set of classic, never go out of style plates for the new Glimmer Machine.  My newest collection, Glorious Glimmer Classic Plates have that sweet calligraphic look that has been popular throughout the ages.  Whether used as a background, framed or layered up with a sweet die cut peeking out from underneath, these plates have options that will allow you to highlight them beautifully in any project.

Join us for our blog hop where we will show you some inspiration on crisply transferred foil that spans from a clean look to a more involved elegant look!!  Also today we have the pleasure of introducing a new Creative Team Member.  Please welcome Ewelina Panka – you have seen and have swooned over her work before.  She creates classic beauty on her —-> Blog as well as on her —-> Facebook and on her —-> Instagram.  Please be sure to subscribe to her in each of these areas and watch as she dazzles with her fine eye for detail as well as her magnificent flowers!

Here is what the plate actually looks like.

This is one of my favorite images, it reminds me of leaves and is oh, so elegant.  I simply took a circle die and traced around each of the mounds so that I could lift my shape up.  This is a perfect shape to layer with one of my intricate squarish dies – so that’s what I did.  Then I took the inner piece and made it a frame so that it could accommodate a sweet sentiment from Quietfire Design called Every Day is a Journey.  It’s that easy to add glimmer to all the layers :-)

For this card, instead of glimmering it, I simply embossed it.  The Glimmer Plates give a very deep and pronounced emboss that seems even more detailed than 3D embossing folders.  For this I simply used to motif as a background element – I love using the plates this way!!

This particular plate works with my Filigree Booklet die to make a book cover or mini card.  There are actually dies with this set of Glimmer Plates that will allow you to make a quick and simple place card.  Today, I made simple baby cards by glimmering the background and adding some precut elements.

Availability:

There is much more inspiration in store today and for the weeks to come.  Just pop down the list of Creative Team Members to see more!

P.S.  I am still displaced from the Hurricane that hit Florida and that means, that the dies I use for prize winners are in Florida.  There are roughly five people waiting on dies.  I have not forgotten you, please bear with me :-)

    Oh, Becca, as always, you do not disappoint!These are sooo LOVELY!! I must go find the video from ages ago where you told how to foil the square edges, too. I already have the GP&F machine, which I understand your foil plates work in… I also have your Elegant Oval and Elegant Affirmation Sentiments sets. I’m hoping to get something elegant done up for my folks anniversary next month. Thank you for coming up with these wonderful goodies that take our papercrafting to the next level!!ReplyCancel

    • D.Ann CNovember 25, 2018 - 4:04 pm

      Oh, you asked for my favorite, well, other than the Elegant Ovals that I already have, I can tell the Elegant Square is going to be next on my list!ReplyCancel

  • Lori PodolskyNovember 25, 2018 - 4:33 pm

    I am always in awe on your magnificent cards, Becca! You are such an inspiration.ReplyCancel

  • Lori SloanNovember 25, 2018 - 9:23 pm

    Becca….you continue to amaze me! Just when I think your creations couldn’t get any better, you come up with more stunning designs. I have the Go Press & Foil machine, but haven’t had a chance to play with it yet. Your gorgeous plates are…well, just gorgeous! Much more to add to my wish list. I don’t know which is my favorite, but the elegant occasion sentiments, the monograms, placecard, background, border….of heck, all of them are awesome! Still sending prayers that you will be able to move back home soon. Take care.ReplyCancel

Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for 11/2018 - Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using this Spellbinders Die can be found at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p= 34306
Good morning!!  Welcome to our inaugural blog hop of the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month.  Since all of this is brand new, today we’re here to feed you some inspiration for the many ways and colors to use the Die of the Month as well as to give you the skinny on the club.  Moreover, be sure to stay tuned until the end of the post when I’ll point you to the next inspiration stop in our blog hop.

What is the Die of the Month?
The Die of the Month is an exclusive die, crème de la crème, designed by me that are unlike previous collections.  These are the special ones, the ones that have waited for a special occasion!  What better way than to take you on a year-long ride of unexpected surprises!

Where is the Die of the Month available?
The Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month is available through Spellbinders.  You can buy it ——-> HERE.

How much is the Die of the Month?
It’s a large die and subscription to the club is $30.00 per month and includes US Shipping.

What’s so special about the Die of the Month?
These are dies that are chock full of extra rims and options!  Because of this, you’ll have a huge amount of flexibility in creating more than one creation from the same set.  It’s exclusive and furthermore, it’s limited, so you won’t see it anywhere else and it’s available until the subscription quantities are gone.

When is the Die of Month available?
The die of the month is available on the first of every month in quantities to cover subscriptions.  That means when it is gone, it’s gone :-)

Why have a Die of the Month?
When most of my dies come out they are themed collections of 12 to 14 dies.  These are the dies that are more specialized that I didn’t want to build an entire collection around – they are definitely the elegant style I love, and as a result I’ve built extra functionality and thought into these sets.  When looking at the entire year, I’ve curated dies that are unique and have some of my favorite formats, shapes and intricacies.

You all have spoken loud and clear to say that you have a monthly budget and that you want to be able to get my dies all year long without breaking the bank.  Well, here you go.  Don’t worry, collections are not going away but streaming them out on a monthly basis, you’ll see one once a month and they are delightful on the budget.

Once you’re in, start creating!!  We can’t wait to see what you make with these exclusive dies – be the first to post your creation on Instagram using the hashtag #AmazingPaperGraceClubKit

Why post?  Certainly, you’ll be showing me how you use the die so that I can fine-tune upcoming months to fit your groove and you’ll be inspiring everyone who looked at the die and didn’t know all the possibilities – it’s a community thing!

Still need more info?  Be sure you read all the Frequently Asked Questions ——-> HERE.

Here’s My Die of the Month Make:

This month I’m highlighting the Christmas Village Vignette Frame Die.  If you look closely you’ll notice that it looks a whole lot like the popular 3D Vignette Grand Cabinet.  That’s no accident because I like to make things that work together and add value to what’s already in your stash.  No worries though, you don’t have to have 3D Vignettes to use this die.

This is one of the first cards I made with the set and for that reason, I am highlighting it today!  I’ve used the new Spellbinders Glimmer Machine to delicately place the unique outline of the die onto the card.  Wow!  This made it one of the easiest makes ever and furthermore, I think the gold makes a statement.  The fragile and intricate look of the frame do all the work and it was oh, so, easy to use the sentiment die as a focal point.

If you already have the Glimmer machine, turn on and heat machine to ready then…

  1. First of all, simply trim your gold foil to match the size of the frame.
  2. Place your die face up on the base of the Glimmer Machine.
  3. Next, add your foil shiny side down on top of the frame.
  4. On top, add your favorite cardstock – here I’ve used Neenah Classic Crest Smooth, Natural White, 80lb
  5. To complete your foiling sandwich on the base, add both Glimmer Shims on top
  6. Finally, run through, remove foil and voila!  As a result, you now have a lovely sparkling background frame!

    You’ve done it again. I love this die – just what I need for my Christmas cards as I have the 3D Grand Cabinet die. Unfortunately, the shipping costs to the UK make joining the club much too expensive.ReplyCancel

    • Karen FrenchNovember 5, 2018 - 1:09 am

      It can’t possibly cost $51 to ship one die to the UK. There must be something they can do, especially as Becca is now associated with Hochanda. I’d definitely subscribe but can’t justify spending that much on postage.ReplyCancel

  • Denice with a "c"November 5, 2018 - 9:25 am

    I am so happy for you and your success, without a doubt, God must be smiling on you and blessing you. I know you have had many trial and tribulations so I am sure you sometimes wonder but it is only through these hard times that we grow stronger in our Father. I am praying for you, especially for all to come together quickly with your home life and to return to normal. We went through something similar years ago and it was one of the hardest times of our life because we were dealing with so many other problems at the same time. There were times when I praised God with tears streaming down my face and times I was so angry I couldn’t think straight. I had to learn to trust Him totally and completely and goodness that is so hard to let it all go and just give it all to Him. My husband and I must be very stubborn people because it took us a long long time to learn… LOL… Sending love and hugs your way… keeping you in my thoughts and prayers… Denice : )ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca your die for the month is gorgeous !
    It is realy sad though that international followers
    of you and your blog can’t join in the excitement
    of your special, especially since I have most of your
    die collections .
    The spellbinders dies we purchase here in Aussie are
    not costing this huge postage to our suppliers who we
    shop with .
    I like many others wish that Spellbinders whould look
    into doing something about the cost ……….
    You are Amazing Becca keep up the good work
    Hugs Pam XXXReplyCancel

  • Joy MosNovember 14, 2018 - 7:27 am

    Hi Becca! So excited that you have this opportunity available to you. Your dies are always gorgeous and I have quite a few already. However, I can’t join the club. I’m only able to save up and purchase dies occasionally. So this means when dies like this month’s selection comes up, instead of getting it or saving up and knowing Spellbinders will have it in stock later on, now I can only look at beautiful samples online. I’m disappointed in this decision but understand you have to do what is right for you.
    On another note, I am so sorry to hear you were affected by Hurricane Michael. I will keep you in my prayers and hope you are able to get back on your feet soon.ReplyCancel
