Gold goes Fast to Fabulous …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Put away your BigShot because today we’re punching!  I’m also going to show you a great tip to create some fun on your cards … works great when you’re creating with the kids.  Our color pallet today is Gold and Vanilla with a pop of Cherry Cobbler.

You will need our Transfer Adhesive sheet because we are making stickers!!  I pulled back the top piece and carefully laid my Gold Foil Sheet onto the sticky side.  I like to put a scrap paper over the top and then apply even pressure to the entire foil sheet to ensure it’s evenly attached.

Now just pull the foil sheet off and you have a sticker sheet!  You can do this with your cardstock, designer paper or any of the specialty paper.  Makes application of multiple items quicker, and it’s great for little fingers that aren’t so good with the snail adhesives.

Next I cut my gold foil down to 4″ x 5-1/4″ then punched out my circles.  I used that piece as my mat for my card front… no one will see where you punched so, NO WASTE!

My vanilla card front is 3-3/4″ x 5″.  I just peeled off the backing and placed the dots were I wanted them …  No fuss … No muss!

The “For You” comes from the Hostess stamp set, “Hello There”.  I inked up the stamp with the Gold Metallic Encore ink, sprinkled my gold embossing powder on, tapped off the excess, and heat embossed.

I punched it out with the 1-1/4″ circle punch and I added one pop of color … Cherry Cobbler with the 1-3/4″ circle punch.  My greeting was popped up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish, I added a strip of the Fast Fuse adhesive to the back side and wrapped the card front with Metallic Gold Bakers Twine.  H-O-L-Y Cow … that Fast Fuse really holds!  The entire card front was popped up  … I love layers and dimension.

And that’s it … fast to make, fabulous to look at!  Besides, who doesn’t love Polka Dots!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Have yourself a Fabulous Friday ~
