Fab Foil Backgrounds with Ericka Strange

Hello! Ericka here and today I'm playing with some Fab Foils and making lots of shiny backgrounds and cards.


I love the look of all the the fabulous colors of WOW! Embossing foils. For today's projects I used Dark Blue, Turquoise, and Pink. There are also a variety of ways you can use the foils. I had my MINC laminator out and decide to use that with the WOW! Bonding Powder.




To use the bonding powder, apply it like embossing powder to an image that has been stamped with embossing ink. Heat the powder until it is shiny. Then there are two way to apply your foil. The first way is to take the foil and place it on the hot bonding powder and wait till it cools before you remove it. The second way, which I used, is to run it through a MINC or laminator.



After I used the Turquoise foil for the stripes, I took the Pinkfesh Classic Word die and cut it from white cardstock. I smooshed it on the embossing ink and covered it with the bonding powder. After melting the powder, I took the pink and dark blue fab foils and ran them through the MINC to get a two tone look.

For my second card, I took a background I had previously made using a gel press and distress ink. Not a great background but wait till you see what foil can do to it!

 


I stamped the PaperArtsy butterfly image and heat embossed it with the bonding powder. I used Pink Fab Foil in my MINC and this beauty came out.


I added the Reverse Confetti Sentiment in black ink to finish off my second card.



I made one more card using the same technique. I used a watercolor background I had made and stamped the images from the Visible Image Creative Chaos set. This time, I used the dark blue foil and love the shine it added to the card.


I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it in Metallic Platinum. Side note - you can also heat emboss on top of the foil, which I have to try.



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get a chance to try the Fab Foil.



There are so many beautiful colors and results are amazing. Have a wonderful weekend!

Cheers,
Ericka

  1. Three beautiful cards Ericka using some pretty foils and the thin stripes look great with the die cut sentiment, then a super idea to use a gel press background with that fabulous butterfly and lastly the wonderful watercoloured stripes with the amazing VI flower, and they all work so well. x

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
