Hi Crafty Friends!
I have ben enjoying creating glimmered sentiments and backgrounds so much lately. I am currently in a season of feeling uninspired to craft. To keep myself going, I try to do tasks that do not require a lot of thought. Creating these glimmered pieces has been perfect as it is a "rinse and repeat" process. The most planning I have to do is choose cardstock and foil combos.
I have foiled and die cut all of the sentiments above in a span of two days, working a few hours a day. I have definitely built my sentiment stash and look forward to having these ready for when my creativity comes back to me and I begin making cards again.
If you have a Glimmer or other hot foil machine, do you use it? If so, what is your favorite thing to glimmer? Backgrounds, sentiments, or regular dies? Also, what is your favorite medium to use when glimmering? I love to use paper of course, but have used ribbon and fabric too.
Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see more hot foiled projects from me.
Below I have a complete affiliated list of supplies that I reach for when using my glimmer.
