Altenew Glint & Glimmer Hot Foil Plates, Embossing Folders and Stencils Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

HOT FOIL PLATES from ALTENEW! Dreams DO come true! Adding a kiss of Foil glamour to your projects just got even easier.

I have used a hot foil heating system for todays projects, but if you do not own one never fear, there are still ways to use the GOURGEOS  FOIL PLATES without a machine. There are countless tutorials on YouTube that share faux letterpress with FOIL PLATES and embossing powder techniques. As well as adding pigment ink to the plate before running it through the die-cut machine.

Jennifer McGuire has a tab for FOILING on here site under TECHNIQUES on the side bar of her blog. I highly recommend checking that out if you haven't already..

Take a look at the first HOT FOIL PLATE release from Altenew:

November 2021 Glint & Glimmer Release Collection

Sentiment Banners Hot Foil Plate
& Cover Die Bundle
Tiny Patterns Hot Foil Plate Set (4 in 1)
Dotty Circles 3D Embossing Folder

The Tiny Patterns Hot Foil Plate Set (4 in 1) is a great way to add a tiny bit of FOIL. And the smaller plates is a good place to begin learning how to HOT FOIL if you are new to the craft. I made SEVERAL of each TINY PATTERN and saved them in my stash for future use.
Throwing together a cluster of random die-cut elements and popping a Sentiment Banners Hot Foil Plate & Cover Die  on top of a inked Dotty Circles 3D Embossing Folder background for this first card.

Anemone Branch Stencil & Die Bundle
Sentiment Banners Hot Foil Plate
& Cover Die Bundle
Tiny Patterns Hot Foil Plate Set (4 in 1)

Next I played with the Anemone Branch Stencil Set (3 in 1) and Anemone Branch Die Set. Ink blending with several sizes of blending brushes. Then I cut a VASE from one of the Tiny Patterns Hot Foil Plates and placed my arrangement along with some of my FAVORITE filler dies :) on a slimeline cardbase. I trimmed a larger Sentiment Banners Hot Foil Plate & Cover Die sentiment in two pieces to make it fit on the card.

Crisp Ink Collection: Enchanted Garden, Jewel Tones


Sunburst Doily Hot Foil Plate & Die Set

How lovely is this Sunburst Doily Hot Foil Plate & Die Set? Not only can you use the outline of the plate as seen on the card, but the negative foil can be used by adding Double-sided Adhesive to a piece of cardstock and then simply applying the left-over foil to it! I then fussy cut the fully FOILED sunburst for a second project...or a sweet ornament :)

Tie Dye 3D Embossing Folder
 For this last card, I heat embossed the raised elements on the Tie Dye 3D Embossing Folder and quickly added watercolored for a simple background to a few of the Sentiment Banners Hot Foil Plate & Cover Die 

That's all from me. Just how excited are you about the new HOT FOIL PLATES at Altenew?!? Let me know in the comments section below before you move on.
