Stars & Stripes

When creating some foiled cardstock for another challenge I actually made a few extra with left over bits of foil. The next two cards are using those pieces and really just playing around.

Beth Silaika – All Star from GKD

Having the foiled piece ready I decided to add the tiny stars down each white space in various Distress Ink colours. Then I took a border die cut made with a set called Alisons Ribbon dies and inked it with VersaMark to which I then added some copper EB powder. After heat setting I got something that almost matched the foil. I took another die from a newly purchased Concord & 9th kit and using a VersaMark pen I did the edges and embossed those. Sentiment is built from the All Star set and I went over the large word with a gold pen.

Flowers and Foil

Lisa Hetrick – Today & Always GKD

This one had been foiled diagonally using Jelly Bean green foil and sweet mango colours which I then added to a piece of copper Metallic card stock and adhered to Grass Green Card stock. Using my newly arrived stamp set I created two flowers and fussy cut them out along with a couple of leaves. I adhered the leaves and then added the flowers on top with dimensionals. Stamped the word Today and didn’t like how big it was so cut it out by hand. I also stamped the tiny word banner and added it underneath.

    1. Fooling around sometimes works into a good result. I’m not lovin these myself, but they aren’t duds and I can use them as birthday cards.
