Spellbinders Modern Essentials & Bold Type Sentiments Collection

March 12, 2020


Hi there, crafty friends! We just arrived home from our trip to NYC, and we had the BEST time. What an amazing city! I couldn't live there, but I enjoyed the hustle, bustle and all there was to do for 6 days. I wanted to pop in today and share some cards I've created using a couple new Spellbinders collections called Modern Essentials and Bold Type Face Sentiments.  This post is quite timely, because Spellbinders has a Glimmer Sale going on now through March 17th, where you can get the Glimmer System for $99! I can't express enough how much I love this little machine, so be sure to scoop it up if it's been on your wishlist!

If you know anything about me, you know that I LOVE Essentials and I LOVE word dies. So this release was right up my alley! I decided to go with a rainbow theme for the sentiments, then kept the rest of the card design simple in order to really highlight those amazing Modern Essentials Glimmer plates.

For this square card I foiled the Essential Glimmer Circles in gold to white cardstock, then diecut with the Nestabilities Essential Squares.  I diecut the Bold Type Happy word twice from rainbow striped cardstock that I created myself, then 4 more times from white cardstock. I cut them mutiple times so I could stack the sentiment and give it more dimension and sturdiness. Then I foiled the More Sentiments Glimmer plates to cashmere cardstock and trimmed into a banner. I assembled the card together as shown, popping the square background up with a full panel of foam adhesive. The final step was accenting with the Crystals Mix to finish.


My second card was created almost exactly the same way. For this one I foiled the Essentials Glimmer Rectangle plates in gold to white cardstock, then diecut with the Nestabilities Essential Rectangles. I diecut the etched Bold Type Congrats word from rainbow striped cardstock that I created myself, then 4 more times from white cardstock & stacked together. Then I foiled the More Sentiments Glimmer plates to cashmere cardstock and trimmed into a banner. I assembled the card together as shown, popping the background up with a full panel of foam adhesive. The final step was accenting with the Crystals Mix to finish.

These new Modern Essentials are really fantastic! There are more shapes that I can't wait to use in the future, and you can see them all in the Full Bundle. This is a great way to purchase them all, as you get almost $40 in savings!

 That is everything I have for you today! If you have any questions about my card, feel free to leave them in the comments and I will be sure to reply.

You can see more foiling blog posts HERE & HERE, plus a YouTube Video HERE. If you are interested in foiling, now is a great time to purchase the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System, as it is discounted to $99 now through 3/17!

Wishing you a wonderful Thursday!
