Spellbinders | Glimmering Peonies

April 20, 2024

Hello crafty friends! I have a floral card to share with you today that features the new Glimmering Peonies Glimmer Hot Foil Plate from Spellbinders. This gorgeous hot foil plate also has a bundle deal that includes the coordinating stencils which I used on my card today. They are currently sold out at Spellbinders, but can be found on some other craft stores in the links at the bottom of this post.

** Affiliated links used were applicable at no extra cost to you. **

To start my card, I first hot foiled my glimmering peonies onto a 4.5″ x 6.25″ piece of white card stock and the Glimmer Hot Foil System. I used the Spellbinders Hot Foil Roll in Pewter to hot foil my image. I then used the coordinating Glimmering Peonies Stencils to ink blend my flowers.

I used a variety of Pinkfresh Inks to do this and listed all of the colors that I used for your reference in the links below. Once I was finished with my ink blending, I then used a dark red and green Faber-Castell colored pencil to add a bit more shading to both my leaves and petals. To make my coloring a little bit softer, I also used a blending pencil to soften my strokes.

Next, I diluted some Winsor and Newton Permanent White Gouache and added some white spatters to my card front. I also diluted some gold watercolor ink to add some darker spatters as well.

Lastly, I hot foiled my sentiment from Yana’s Special Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plates onto a piece of black card stock and adhered it to my card front.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my card today!
