Flamingo Foil-Mates Card Video Tutorial

Many of you may be wondering if the Foil-Mates paper is thick enough for techniques that use water, and the answer is yes. The paper has a very smooth finish and allows you to apply and blend inks easily. On the other hand, it will hold after using water moderately. On today’s card I sprayed water directly to the Foil-Mates background and although at first you might notice some texture on the spots the water touched, once it dries it will have its original smooth finish.

These cards are lots of fun to make, especially because the Foil-Mates background do the hard work for you… All you need to do is add a bit of color! Click below to learn how to make these Flamingo themed Foil-Mates cards!

Graciellie Design at Word Art Wednesday – $15 Gift Card & Inspiration Projects

I am joining Word Art Wednesday Challenge today, together with some of Graciellie Design’s Creative Team to showcase their weekly verse printable using our digital stamps. I decided to go for a subtle pool and white card with a touch of gray and Lapis Watercolor Deco Foil.

To view this and other new stamp sets click here.

I printed the verse using a laser printer and foiled the sentiment in Black Deco Foil, which is actually kind of matte. The foiling made the verse look bolder, added contrast and laminated the print. (It’s a super nice effect.) The flowers were foiled with Lapis Watercolor Deco Foil which has blue, silver and champagne hues. By watercoloring the flowers in light blue it made the foiling look tone on tone… Very subtle and elegant. I used Zig markers to color the images.

The die cuts used are all from Spellbinders. I did a lot of die cut layering like in the old days. I added a piece of gray grossgrain ribbon to match the beautiful Laser Silver Lustre cardstock from Paper Temptress.

I invite you to head over to Word Art Wednesday Challenge to check out what the designers created with this beautiful verse and our stamps. WAW designers are featuring cards too, so there are a lot of project ideas for you! Oh, and there is a $15 Gift Card giveaway too so make sure to participate on this week’s challenge for a chance to win new stamps!

Thanks for stopping by.

Decofoil Stamping: Mixed Media Poinsettia Card + Christmas Freebies!

Merry Christmas! I couldn’t miss the opportunity to share my final Christmas card of the year with you! This time I am sharing a mixed media card in warm traditional colors. I got the chance to use some mediums I had almost forgotten I had, so that makes my little crafty heart happy!


Supplies:
Dies Cuts: Spellbinders – Heirloom Oval, Damask Motifs, Layered Poinsettia, 5 x 7 Matting Card Basics A, Exquisite Labels 11 / Poppystamps – Holiday Winterberries / ODBD – Fancy Foliage / Die-namites – Budding Branch
Stamp: Graciellie Design Distressed Poinsettia Digital Stamp Set
Inks: Ranger Distress Inks – Barn Door, Vintage Photo
Adhesives: Thermoweb – iCraft Mixed Media Adhesive, Decofoil Hot Melt Adhesive Sheets
Tools: Evolution Advanced die cutting machine / Mini Minc / Ranger Ink Blending Tool / Umbrella Crafts Sponge Dauber / Small brush / SU Paper piercing tool / Samsung ML2020W Laser Printer
Embellishments:  May Arts – 1″ Ivory Crinkle Ribbon, 3″ Olive Tulle, 5/8″ Olive Green Raffia Bows / White pearls / Silver hologram jewels / Styrofoam /
Other: Decofoil Transfer Sheets – Silver, Red, Pewter / Snow-tex / Twinklets Diamond Dust / DecoArt Media Crackle Paint – White / Pan Pastel – Titanium White, Silver

I’ve been using decofoil so much lately and something tells me I won’t stop using it any time soon! It just gives your projects such a unique look… It really takes a card to the next level. This time though I used it to stamp my flower. Of course this poinsettia is a digital stamp, which means I went ahead and printed it with a laser printer and used a laminator with some red decofoil transfer sheet to foil the flower. Once your image is foiled it works just as it would with heat embossing, so you can play with a fun foil resist technique. I colored the poinsettia with a Barn Door diy Distress Spray Ink, sponged it with ink and even rubbed some Titanium White Pan Pastel to add highlights -my new favorite mixed media technique-. To make the center of the flower I crushed some styrofoam and glued it with mixed media adhesive.

For that lovely touch of snow I used Snowtex on the leaves and Twinklets on the center of the flower. I had not used these two in way too long so I was glad to add them to this card! Clearly I layered many embellishments and die cuts to frame the poinsettia and used a bit more of foil on a few die cuts to add some interest. There are many ways to foil cardstock for die cutting but this time I used Decofoil Hot Melt Adhesive sheets. You need to run your cardstock twice through your laminator when you use these sheets, one to stick the adhesive sheet to your cardstock and a second time to foil it. I added texture using different kinds of ribbons too and finished off my card with pearls and jewel stickers.

I hope you find inspiration on today’s card! I bet there’s still a few cards and tags you need to put together so I hope this gives you a few ideas. But before I go, I have a little Christmas present for you, my followers… Two digital stamp sets available for instant download, both celebrate the season with fun and inspiring sentiments and pretty images! Enjoy!

I send warm wishes to you, hoping you have a peaceful, joyful Christmas, full of gifts, including those for the soul, surrounded by loved ones that truly make you feel loved as well. (If you were to be alone, be alone with the certainty that the Lord’s love surrounds you too on His day.)
