Technique Tuesday – Fun with Foil!!!!

HAPPY TUESDAY!!! You know what that means….I have a fabulous Technique to share with you! This week it features the NEW Foil Sheets (Silver & Gold) in the Occasions Mini Catalog! I have had so much fun with these sheets and achieved some many fabulous looks!!!! Check it out!

Embossing Foil,

How fabulous is this?? The added texture and pattern and shine is soooo fabulous! All you have to do is run it through your Big Shot with any of your Textured Impressions Embossing Folders! I used the Argyle Texture Impressions Folder! Emboss with metallic side facing up towards the side of the folder with the Stampin’ Up! logo for the image to pop-up on the shiny side! If you would like the image to be reversed, place the metallic side down, away from the logo. I added this piece of Foil onto my card with Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper on the bottom portion! I love the colors and patterns of this paper!!! I think stamped the flower from the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set and punched it out with the coordinating Blossom Punch! I cut 2 pieces of the Designer Series Paper for my little banner flags hanging out the bottom and then added a third one in Very Vanilla for my greeting which was stamped from the A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set! What do you think? I also think that the Argyle Foil looks like diamond plate (you know those silver boxes in the back of trucks?) so I think it would make a great “man card”! More to come on that…..

Happy Stampin’

  2. Thanks for the foil sheets inspiration. I’m always on the lookout for ideas that will fit masculine cards.
