Got to love the shine

The purple leaves and berries are actually the negative of another foiling project. I used the freezer paper method of attaching the foil on the top piece and that was mounted on white cs. The bottom piece was pp coated with foil transfer gel then foil laid on top and the whole thing sent through laminator and that was mounted on black cs. Pieces mounted on white cs base with stamped sentiment. Made the dots out of copy paper that had the same color of the ink pad printed on it. Small punches use to cut the dots, heat embossed with clear and glued on.

Row of Three

I have this container of Perfect Pearls that I seldom use, so in an effort to change that, I put the gold in a mister bottle and added some yellow color burst and re-inker of bright yellow. The results are better than expected. This photo does not show the shine of the spray when applied through a stencil on copy paper. The rest of the card was made by stamping the honeycombs in black on white cs base, bees are Silhouette cut and heat embossed in black. The sentiment is Silhouette cut twice in white but one was copic colored black then stacked behind the white one then glued on top. I really like how the sentiment is a play on words because the bees really are not suppose to be able to fly.

For a Tree

The challenge over at As You See It this next two weeks is to dedicate your creation to trees. I had made a stencil that has tree leaves and berries that lends itself to this theme. I sponged dark green for the leaves and red for the berries. Cut the sentiment and solid outline for it on Silhouette. Sponged the colors on the sentiment then painted it with clear gesso and sprayed with shimmer. Popped up the outline and sentiment then layered with gold on white cs base.

Foiling without laser printer

CAS Mix Up: Foiling

The top foiling is a Silhouette cutout of sticker paper. I removed the sticky covering and layered on some multi colored foil then ran that through laminator. Glued the foiled design onto layering weight cs that has dry embossing on lower half. I created the sentiment that was also Silhouette cut only on the layering weight white cs. I added transfer gel to the word then laminated that piece with more of the foil. Glued the sentiment on then layered all that on red cs then white cs base.

Tip: You don’t have to run the paper through the laminator with transfer gel but it does adhere better therefore it is a lot more shiny. Here is the word for you to use any way you like.
