Thanks Card with Dana

Happy Monday, everyone!

It's Dana here with my last *Foils* monthly inspiration. If you haven't joined our Facebook Monthly Challenge, click HERE :)

For today's card, I started by stamping cactus images from Studio Katia Cactus Hugs Stamp Set onto watercolor paper. I watercolored them and cut them out using coordinating dies.

I took A2 sized watercolor paper and ink blended it with distress oxide inks for background. I used Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick and Cracked Pistachio colors. I then spritzed clean water using mini mister and let it dried.

Next, I die cut cover panel and sentiment from white card stock using Studio Katia Grid Cover and Sweet Latte Coordinating Dies.

Especially for the 'thanks', I added double sided tape on white card stock before cut it out. After I peeled off protective sheet, I took a WOW! Bright Gold Fab Foil (UKUSA) and rubbed it with my finger.

I mounted every elements where I wanted them using foam adhesive and glue. To finish off, I…

Stepped up stencilling with Fab Foils

Hello, it's Verity with another video and blog post as a Creative team member for WOW!Do you love to create backgrounds using stencils, but want to step up your stencilling? Why not try adding foils to you stencil designs for beautiful striking backgrounds. Fab foils work so well for this technique, pairing with an array of ink colours and stencilled designs.

Stepped up stencilling with Fab Foils photos:The stencil I am using for all three cards today is the Handpainted Chevron from Thirsty Brush and & Co - a fairly new stamp, die and stencil company here in the UK.   I'm combining this with three Fab Foils colours and using the bonding powder from WOW! to adhere to the foils.

For the first card, I'm ink blending through the stencil like you normally would using Rose petal and peppermint scrub Catherine pooler inks for an Ombre look. Make sure the ink …

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.
To further have that sweet feeling, I used honey tones in the background. I embossed a honey comb styled pattern to the background using "Honey" powder and then added some watercolors in honey shades on top. I also chose to mount the card on top of orange cardstock and have that line the greeting a…
