Cherry Blossom Retreat Birthday Card

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I am sharing a card that I have made for my husband’s colleague. The brief was the recipient loved dogs and gardening so I thought I would combine the two. I have used a combination of different collections from Heartfelt Creations to create this card – Cherry Blossom Retreat, French Cottage, Home on the Farm and Happy Camper. The numbers are from the retiring Sugarspun collection. I love how you can mix and match these collection. Can you imagine how blissful it would be sitting in the chair under the flowers and birds with all the pots of flowers and a dog to keep you company.

\

My husband loves the card and I am hoping his colleague does too.

I hope I have inspired you to create using a mix and match of collections too.

A Delicate impressions Congratulations

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back.

Delicate Impressions Details

We’re excited to introduce another Glimmer Hot Foil collection! The Delicate Impressions Collection has five sets of Glimmer Hot Foil Plates. The fifth set, Heart Melt Sentiments, has four unique phrases with matching dies. The other four sets are designed to create borders and accents that can be used on cards from A2 to 5 x 7-inches. Each elegant motif can be layered with itself or mix with others in the same collection or beyond.

Glimmer Hot Foil Plates are metal plates used in the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System to transfer foil to paper through a combination of heat and pressure.  Roll the Glimmer machine base through your die cut machine to deliver its beautiful design. Refer to Compatibility Charts on Spellbinders’ website, to see if your machine is a match.

Have you ever had times where you just cannot get the right background to showcase beautiful decorative dies and flowers? The Diamonetta Background Glimmer Hot Foil Plate from Delicate Impressions Collection by Becca Feeken is perfect to create elegant backgrounds as it is expandable to fit your project. The Congratulations sentiment is from the beautiful Elegant Occasion Sentiments Glorious Glimmer Hot Foil Classic Plates by Becca Feeken and fits perfectly with the elegant image I was trying to achieve.

The gorgeous background die is the Amazing Paper Grace Cascading Grace Etched Dies by Becca Feeken and was one of my first Amazing Paper Grace dies and one I pull out every so often as it is just so elegant for very special occasion cards.

All the flowers have been handcrafted using Amazing Paper Grace flower dies. I am really loving how the roses are turning out using the Candlewick Rosebud Etched Dies Candlewick Sampler Collection by Becca Feeken dies. You can make so many different flowers from this die set and it is my go to flower die.

The small flower die is from the Cinch and Go V Etched Dies Vintage Treasures by Becca Feeken set and that is another favourite set for small filler flowers.

My Project For Today

I have made a clean and simple card using the absolutely stunning Sweet Blooms Border Glimmer Hot Foil Plate from Delicate Impressions Collection by Becca Feeken. This is such a pretty image and I loved playing with it.

I have hot foiled the image onto watercolour card and then watercoloured the image using Jane Davenport Watercolors. These watercolours are really gorgeous to work with and are clear and transluscent – perfect for what I needed here. I have finished the card with a sentiment from the Heart Melt Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from Delicate Impressions Collection by Becca Feeken.

The gold Elegant Twist Rectangle really finishes off the image don’t you think?

Here is what the dies look like:

Becca Feeken sent over these stunning plates and dies for me to try.

Each of our Creative Team members will show you their take on cards made with the Collection.

My Projects For Today

First up I have made a card with a coordinating gift box to gift to a very special friend using the beautiful  Fanfare Border Glimmer Hot Foil Plate from Delicate Impressions Collection by Becca Feeken and the Heart Melt Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from Delicate Impressions Collection by Becca Feeken.

Here is what the dies look like:  

For my card I have used the fanfare borders to create a beautiful background for my favourite embellishments – handcrafted roses coloured with the Jane Davenport watercolours and accented with the gorgeous flourish from the Shapeabilities Candlewick Rosebud Etched Dies Candlewick Sampler Collection by Becca Feeken.

My second project is a gift box that I have made using a variety of background layering dies that accentuate the stunning fanfare accents. This card and box is perfect filled with chocolates or special gifts and given with the card to a very special friend.

Designer Tip:  

I have found trimming the foil to be a similar size to your hot glimmer plate helps to allow for the use of tape to adhere the plate to your card and stops slipping and mistakes.
