Vellum Hot Foiled Florals - Simon Says Stamp Just for You Instagram Hop

 Good morning! Today I'm joining a fun Instagram hop to celebrate the Just for You Release from Simon Says Stamp! Lots of inspiration to be found, and some great prizes as well! Head over to my Instagram HERE to check it out! But as always with an Insta hop, there are only so many details you can get in that tiny caption, so I always like to do a full blog post with ALL the details!

The cards I'm sharing today feature some hot foiling on vellum using the beautiful new Spring Flowers hot foil plate that was part of the release.

I didn't always have wonderful luck hot foiling on vellum, but I picked up some Spellbinders vellum, and as you can see, it worked great for me! I hot foiled several - I only had one that didn't foil well, and I realized I had flipped the paper over. I'm not sure if it was a fluke, or if there is actually a right and wrong side to it? But if you try and don't have success, I would suggest testing the other side, and seeing if that makes a difference.

I not foiled both of these with the Satin Metallics Glimmer foils - this first one uses the gold tone, the second card below uses the more champagne toned one.

Once they were trimmed down, I created a frame using Stitched Rectangles dies - the two largest sizes - from Cream cardstock, then adhered the vellum directly to the back of those frames. I then added foam tape strips around the outer edges of the frames, and adhered that to white cardbases. This makes the vellum feel particularly ethereal and pretty!

I added sentiments to both of them from the Reverse Sunshine and Rainbows sentiment strips, popping them up with foam as well.

I finished them both off with a few Pinkfresh Glitter drop in Gold and Butterscotch to coordinate!

I hope you enjoyed the little peek into how these came together!
