To kolejna kartka z zestawem do nakładania metalicznej folii na gorąco “Graceful Swan” z kolekcji Sweet Cardlets od Amazing Paper Grace. Możliwości wykorzystania go do tworzenia kartek, bilecików itp.  są ogromne i z radością je odkrywam :D Tym razem tło ze srebrnym ornamentem pomalowałam farbkami akwarelowymi Jane Davenport uzyskując rozmyty malarski efekt.

Srebrny łabędź na biały tle wygląda naprawdę uroczo, a wyrkojnik dołączony do zestawu pozwala go precyzyjnie wyciąć i zachować elegancki charakter. Do tego romantycznego zestawu dodałam różowy tiul i ramkę wyciętą owalnym wykrojnikiem Picot Petite Ovals, także od Amazing Paper Grace.

Wciągam się w “foliowanie”, czyli nakładanie folii metalicznych na papier, na gorąco. Efekty są naprawdę śliczne – dzisiaj prezentuję dwie kartki, na których są różne elementy wykonane przy pomocy płytek do nakładania folii oraz maszynki Glimmer Hot Foil System od Spellbinders.

Tym razem na tapet wzięłam te śliczności od Amazing Paper Grace z łabędziami <3 Płytki z łąbędziami, napisami i pięknym tłem, są w zestawie z wykrojnikiem, który umożliwia ładne wycięcie łabędzia.

Robiłam różne eksperymenty z kolorami kartonów i folii – wyjątkowo efektownie wygląda folia przezroczysta z efektem opal, nałożona na metalicznie mieniący się jasny karton. Tylko ten efekt jest bardzo trudny do pokazania na zdjęciach.

Introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Cardlets Collection

1020Week3-AgnieszkaPosluszny01

What’s a Cardlet, pray tell?  A Cardlet is a small motif, complete with background, sentiment and character that combine to make small card or layers onto a larger card.  We’re delighted to introduce you to the Sweet Cardlets Collection.

Becca Feeken sent over these lovely dies and watercolors for me to try.

Sweet Cardlets show up in a Glimmer format with a matching die.   They are metal plates that are used in the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System to transfer foil to paper through a combination of heat and pressure.  The Glimmer machine base is rolled through your die cut machine to deliver that pressure.  As long as you have a machine that can accommodate thick dies – like steel rule dies, you’re all set. A word to the wise, it is very addicting. 

The Inspiration behind Sweet Cardlets

We gotta fess up here.  There’s no such word as cardlets, yep, Becca straight up made it up.  You have to agree though, it sounds really cute, right?  Well that was the inspiration behind sweet cardlets.  As you can imagine it has something to do with cards and moreover, little cards. 

Always mindful of the budget, Becca wanted to create a collection where each set is all you need to make a little card.  Sweet Cardlets are small motifs with a 3" x 3" footprint.  Each has a background, a main character and several sentiments. 

We found it the right size to fit on an A2 card and even to layer onto an A7 card.  In fact, the 3" background can be repeated for a long background or a larger background.  Dies cut out each main character and three sentiments with each set give you lots of options.

Each of our Creative Team members will show you their take on cards made with the Sweet Cardlets Collection.  Today we’re all using Jane Davenport Watercolors in some technique to show off Sweet Cardlets.

Heart Felt Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set Sweet Cardlets by Becca Feeken GLP-219

GLP-219-Sweet-Cardlets-Becca-Feeken-Heart-Felt-SentimentsSo I made a cardlet <3 I used the background plate to foil these lovely hexagons on cardstock (with opal, clear foil) and then painted them with watercolors. Oh, it was fun! I really like the cheerful outcome. The bee and the sentence were foiled with rosy-gold foil, to make them pop off the background. This is the essence of “sweet cardlet” for me – small, easy to make and cute.

My second project is a small tag, with a background made the same way, as on my cardlet, I just used other combination of colors. I love the artsy look of watercolors in this project!

Designer Tip:  Try to use different foil colors in one project – it adds a lot of an interest to it.
