Introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Cardlets Collection


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.  (Compatibility charts on the Spellbinders website)

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.

My Projects For Today

First up is  GLP - 235 Lovely Ladybug by Spellbinders

Here is what the dies look like:

Actually I ordered and I am still waiting for my Hot Foil Glimmer Machine, however it doesn't mean that you are not able to use these beautiful dies. and now I show you how you can do this.

So, you may wonder , what I have done? Well I just use the dies with my Die cutting Machine, it was a bit heavy to slice it for the Glimmer plates, however it works too. I've got a faux dry embossing on my cardstock.

 You can notice that the dots on the lady bug wings are cut out well ( instead of embossing, I guess it depends mostly on the pressure you apply while die cutting)

For my background plate layer I used watercolor paper and tried new Watercolor Set Neutrals Art Essentials by Jane Davenport

I tried the same technique and used it to create a topper for my candy box

I only changed the color of the bugs and used the same watercolor set to create the background and the plate to emboss the cardstock.

Here is the Spellbinders video showing amazing new samples as well as a walkthrough of the entire collection.

I love your comments!

so I am really curious do you love using lady bugs or bees in your projects. I mean that the butterflies are quite universal but as for other - I like bee theme, and tried to add lady but ad the first time. Now I am sure I will keep on using it more often.
