Coloring on Foils

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you are having a good day … it is Monday but if I think Friday is only 4 days away – everything seems brighter!! Then I step outside and it’s overcast, dreary and the wind is blowing that cold right through you, so I went back inside, put on one of my favorite CD’s and started to stamp … ahhhhh, much better!!

Yesterday I shared my Silver Foil card with you …

Pretty … Yes! But wait, we’re going to grab our Stampin’ Blend and ink pad and add some color!! What do you think …

OK … I’ll put it onto a card.  I used several different colors of my Stampin’ Blends to color the different flowers on the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder found on page 23 of the Occasions Catalog… and I’m pairing it with the Sale-a-bration item; Springtime Foils Specialty Designer paper (Free with a $50 purchase during our Sale-a-bration).

I took the Lemon Lime Twist ink and sponged it onto my Springtime Foils Specialty Designer paper. It takes the color so nicely and really compliments the Silver foil paper we have embossed and colored.

I’ll be honest … I don’t like blunt edges so you’ll always see me adding a strip of cardstock or a ribbon to join my two edges and give it a softer look. Here I used the beautiful Powder Pink Ribbon that coordinates with the card base and the mat to our greeting.

The greeting is again from the “A Mother’s Flair” on page 46 in the Occasions Catalog. This set is so pretty but it’s going to be hard for me to make a Mother’s Day card this year, but it would be a nice way to honor my Mom (it’s just a little raw yet).

The greeting was cut out with our Stitched Shape and Circle Framelits Dies. I mounted it over my ribbon and then finished off the card with the Glitter Enamel Dots … if you haven’t noticed, I’m really crushin’ on these!! They go with everything!!

I hope you enjoyed today’s card, it is a lot quicker to make than what it looks like it would be. So try your hand at coloring on the foils … it is so pretty!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Have a wonderful Monday ~
