Foiled and Inked Backgrounds by Jaine

I don't know about you but during this month of foiling, I've certainly learned a lot! There are so many different ways to apply Fab Foils and so many different finishes to be created. I think for me, it's the abstract ways I can incorporate them into my backgrounds and the subtle finishes I can achieve which I find the most interesting.   These two cards came about after some experimenting with a few backgrounds already on my worktable. The watercolour/inky backgrounds were created on textured watercolour paper so I knew I wouldn't be able to get a nice perfect impression from a stamp. The dandelion card came out better than I first thought it would but still the impression is less than even. I don't mind that at all and decided as an accent over the turquoise it would be so cool. For the second card, I thought that seeing as I wasn't going to get an even impression on the textured card base, I would stamp the flowers background stamp, only r

Bold Butterflies with Gemma

Today I’m sharing a card using this month’s theme of Foils. I used double sided adhesive to add Bright Gold Fab Foil to some pretty die cut butterflies. I began by adding some Stick-It double sided adhesive sheet to a piece of white card. From this, I die cut two of the smaller butterfly from the Pretty Pink Posh Bold Butterflies die set, making sure to have the adhesive on the top layer. I removed the adhesive backing from the butterflies, then placed the Bright Gold Fab Foil over the top. I burnished with my finger, then removed the foil sheet. The foil adheres well to the adhesive sheet. Any areas that are missed, just go back with the fab foil sheet and add more. Next, I worked on the background. I die cut a rectangle using the Heffy Doodle metric stitched rectangles set. I blended on distress oxide inks in Weathered Wood, Evergreen Bough, and Peacock Feathers. I flicked the panel with a mix of gold perfect pearls and water, to give more interest to the back

FABfoil wih Transfer Gel

Hi all, Jo here and welcome to today's blog post where I use the Ice Blue FABfoil with Deco foil transfer gel. TIP 1 - Make sure when using the transfer gel with stencils I suggest your secure the stencil down with washie tape especially when with an intricate design.  I have used a new release product also for the sentiment from Pink & Main directly from our store. Check out the new BANG in action. TIP 2- When using this gel I highly recommend washing the stencil and wiping down any tools used and surfaces straight away. I have created a youtube on how I made today's card over on the WOW! Embossing Powders  youtube channel.

Fab Foils and Liquid Adhesive with Jenny Colacicco

Hi Everyone!   It's Jenny here and I'm excited to be joining you with another post featuring WOW!'s Fab Foils.  Today I'm focusing on black and gold which is one of my favourite color combos -  super cool but also pretty elegant in my humble opinion! I'm using liquid adhesive to apply my foil for these cards.  I only tried this with FlitterGlu which I have used in the past for applying gold leaf.  You could try it with other glues and see if it works though! I created a video showing you how to create these cards over on the WOW!  YouTube channel : To create this first card, I die cut the letters using Altenew's Bold Alphabet. I die cut 5 of each letter and adhered 4 together, saving one of each letter.    I then applied FlitterGlu with an ink blending tool to the bottom of each of the letters. (I squeezed a bit out on my craft mat and dunked the blending tool in it). Then the fun part - use WOW! Fab Foil (I

Bonding Powder + Foil With Karen Reategui

Hi shiny friends! Today I'm up at the WOW! Embossing Powder Blog sharing this card made with Gina K. Watercolor Flowers Stamp and WOW! Pink Fab Foil. Let's shine! I started by stamping the flowers onto Kraft cardstock using WOW! Bonding Powder. Then, I placed a piece of WOW! Pink Fab Foil on top and put it in a laminator. Once it was dried, I removed the foil. I adhered this Kraft panel to a white card base that was previously stamped using an Impression Obsession Background stamp and Altenew Pink Diamond ink. Additionally, I cut a thin stripe out of fuchsia cardstock and added it to the background. I stamped the sentiment onto a white oval die cut and placed it on top of the card using foam tape. Finally, I added a few jewels to the flowers as a final touch. I hope you like this card and start using more WOW! Fab Foils on your projects. WOW! has a great variety of beautiful colors that you can find at the shop. You can use my discount code

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 ( UK | USA ) and rubbed it with my finger. I mounted every elements where I wanted them using foam
