Gold Butterfly - Raluca Vezeteu

Hi everyone and welcome back to our creative WOW space! Raluca here and I'm so excited to share with you my new CAS card showcasing WOW! Fab Foil that are amazing and they come in a beautiful variety of colors! 

I created this card to play along with the "Foils" theme for the Wow! Embossing Powder Facebook Fan Group page monthly challenge - ❤ WOW Embossing Powder Fans ❤ https://www.facebook.com/groups/WOWEPFans/
For my card I played with the gorgeous WOW! Fab Foil - Bright Gold and the WOW! Bonding Powder embossing powder, along with the WL01 Bright White embossing powder.

Hello sweet bee - a card by Riikka Kovasin

Hello! It's Riikka here again with another post! Totally different style card this time, but there is one common factor in them - the foils! Where as I made some really grungy cards in my previous post, in the beginning of the month, this time I made something as sweet as honey!

This card had it's inspiration in the spring and sun. I wanted to create a cheerful card with sunshine. For the sun part I created a big golden disc using golden Fab Foil. As the foil sticks to anything, well, sticky, I used double sided adhesive sheet this time. I added the sheet on top of some cardstock and then used a circular die to cut a "sun" out of it and then foiled it with gold.

I embossed a honey comb styled pattern to the background using "Honey" powder and then added some watercolors in honey shades on top.

A Serendipitous Moment! By Jaine

I had intended to create a very different blog post to the one I ended up with, but thanks to a bit of lateral thinking I came upon a happy surprise!


This is the foiled card I made first, very pretty in its own right. Stamped with a Pink and Main stamp called You Can Fly and foiled in Silver Foil. I could easily have left it there, but I looked at the little pile of discarded foils ( I do keep every scrap - like you do!) and the butterfly die and had one of those light bulb moments.


What if I took a piece of double sided sticky sheet, die cut the butterfly from it and applied the bits of foil randomly over the sticky surface?


As there were so many little bits in odd shapes, it created a crazy abstract pattern with the foils. I was liking it more and more.


I added another colour, simply pressing the foil down onto the sticky surface and pulling up. Just like a wax strip! Enough said!!


I kept on going, filling in the spaces until I could feel no more sticky. I was thrilled with the res…
