Bougainvillea Print with Foil

Bougainvillea Print with Foil

Here are a few more cards that I made with my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System.

I just LOVE Pinkfresh Studio’s Bougainvillea Print, and there are several coordinating products in this line that can be used to create a variety of card designs. For this one, I used the Bougainvillea Print Hot Foil Plate (and gold foil) along with the coordinating Bougainvillea Print Stencil Set. The greeting is from the Spellbinders Stylish Script Thank You & Happy Birthday glimmer plate set. I added color to the foiled panel with Bubblegum, Passionate Pink, Fresh Asparagus, and Deep Sage inks from Gina K Designs. White and Bubblegum card stock were also used.

And a purple one…

Here, I used the coordinating Bougainvillea Stamp and added color with the stencils to the stamped image and left the foiled background panel uncolored. The greeting on this one came from the Spellbinders Essential Glimmer Sentiments glimmer hot foil plate set.

The stamped center panel started out as a full stamped/inked panel, and I tried to add the greeting directly to that. As I mentioned in my last post, I was having trouble with perfect placement and the greeting ended up terribly crooked. I tried to trim it down with my trimmer, and it just kept getting smaller and smaller as I tried to get the panel square with the greeting – lol! I should have used a die to cut the panel!!

Anyway, I created another stamped and stenciled panel and just added a separate foiled greeting panel to that one. Leason learned!!!

Thanks for checking out my card projects!

  1. You are really knocking it out of the park with your Glimmer machine. Your cards are all gorgeous. I haven’t had time to really play with mine, but you’ve sure given me lots of inspiration.


  2. Beautiful cards. The glimmer foiling in striking and it’s wonderful when companies are combining stamps, dies, stencils and even foiling together.
