Spellbinders | May 2024 Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month - Tropical Bloom + BONUS Tropical Bloom Stencil

Today, I'm sharing two cards featuring the May 2024 Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month from Spellbinders. Both cards feature the "Tropical Bloom" Glimmer Hot Foil Kit and the second card also features the BONUS coordinating "Tropical Bloom Stencil", only available with The Deluxe Caboodle Value ClubClub Kits close on the 27th of each month so get them while you can!

Ever since I made THIS card featuring the Daffodil Spray, I've wanted to make another card in this style and it was time! This fresh colour palette was inspired by Lauren Wager.

The cardstock I pulled are Hero Arts PumpkinSpellbinders Glacier and Barely Peach, and Concord & 9th Clover. After cutting up various slices of each other and taping them together at the back, I was ready to heat foil.

I used Matte Gold Hot Foil to heat foil the large "Tropical Bloom" directly onto the panel. It's not perfectly foiled on the Clover section but it'll do.

The "Tropical Bloom" Glimmer Hot Foil Kit comes with two sentiments with coordinating dies. I heat foiled this particular sentiment with White Hot Foil on Clover cardstock and die cut it a second time from Mirror Gold cardstock.

After popping up the sentiment with foam strips, I added a few coordinating Tangerine Glitter Dots. What do you think of this design? How does it compare to my previous card featuring the Daffodil Spray?

My second card also features the "Tropical Bloom" Glimmer Hot Foil Kit but I also used the BONUS coordinating "Tropical Bloom Stencil", which is only available with The Deluxe Caboodle Value Club.

This time, I used Pewter Hot Foil to heat foil the "Tropical Bloom" twice on white cardstock. I love this shade of foil as an alternative to black because it's not quite so dark and has a lot of shine. It's just so beautiful to look at in person.

The BONUS coordinating "Tropical Bloom Stencil" comes with two layering stencils and I used the following inks to add colour to the flower: Concord & 9th Nectar, Catherine Pooler Mandarin Spice and Tranquil, and Concord & 7th Clover.

The sentiment banners are all from the Cheers to You Sentiments Press Plate & Die Set but I heat foiled them here, also using Pewter Hot Foil. I love that you can use BetterPress plates as hot foil dies, too! To finish, I added a few Nectar Enamel Dots.

Here's a list of monthly club kits I share, as well as some of the value kits offered by Spellbinders:
