Trendy Bakers Twine ~ Feather Thank You Card

Hello everyone!  Today is my day to post on the Trendy Twine blog.  I made thank you card using Totally Navy Trendy Twine, which is our featured color for June.
I started with the beautiful gold foiled feather paper and added Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide to it.  After die cutting the background papers, I wrapped Totally Navy Trendy Twine around it before adhering it to the card base.  The sentiment panel was created with more die cuts and popped up with foam tape.  I added a single bow of Totally Navy Trendy Twine next to it.  The finishing touch was a few dots of gold pearl pen.  A simple, yet elegant card complete!

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Lily Sympathy Card

Good Morning!  Today is my day to post on the SumMore Fun blog.  The card I am sharing with you uses the Raisin Boat In Loving Memory stamp set.
I started out by stamping the single lily from the In Loving Memory stamp set onto white cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossing it with regular white embossing powder.  I then ran it through a laminator with a gold foil sheet to get the beautiful foiled image.  For extra color, I used Dusty Concord Distress Oxide ink, smeared it on my craft mat, spritzed it with water, then dabbed my stamped image into the ink.  I just LOVE how the oxidation created different colors!  I used a GMD pleated square die to cut around the flower and popped it up with foam tape.
All of the patterned papers are from DCWV's Lilac Love stack.  I stamped a sentiment from the In Loving Memory stamp set using Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  Lastly, I added a few dots of gold Pearl pen!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Foiled Floral Cards

Good Morning!  Today is my day to post on the SumMore Fun blog.  The cards I am sharing with you use the Victorine Originals Floral and Sayings stamp set.
On these cards, I tried my hand at foiling for the first time!  I love the shiny metallic finish it gives, but it is hard to capture that in photos.  For this anniversary card, I stamped the floral bouquet from the Floral and Sayings stamp set onto white paper using VersaMark ink and heat embossed with regular white embossing powder.  I always use my stamp platform when embossing!  I then ran the stamped paper with a piece of foil (shiny side up) through my laminator (no carrier sheet).  When the paper was cool, I peeled off the foil to reveal the image!
I used various oval dies to cut around the floral design and added a Happy Anniversary sticker to the center.  I embellished with Pearl Pen dots in Gold and Ice White and white seam binding ribbon.
For my second card, I followed the same foiling process except I used an ultrafine embossing powder and it gave a more bold foiled image.  I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Floral and Sayings stamp set in black.  I added a double bow of Pink Midnight Trendy Twine in the bottom right corner.
See that metallic shine?!  It definitely makes an eye-catching card!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
