Ahhh foiling. All those who read my blog posts know that I LOVE sparkle and glitter. And Gina’s foil just radiates with magnificent sparkle. Today we have a new Thermoweb and Stamp n’ Foil Release for y’all!
Look at this amazing tape runner. And it’s Gina’s favorite color too ❤️
Here are the new Stamp N’ Foils:
This one is called “Holly Jolly”.
For my first card, I inked up all the poinsettia and holly images with Gina K Amalgam Ink (the best ink EVER I promise you) on Heavy Base Weight White Cardstock. I then used my Copic markers to color in the images.
The colors for the poinsettia are R27 and R89 (same for the little berries). And for the holly leaves I used G07 and G14. The Heavy Base Weight White Cardstock is my favorite for Copic marker coloring. It absorbs the color wonderfully and blends so well. I stuck the colored images on a piece of Dark Chocolate Cardstock. I used a woodsy embossing folder to give detail to the Dark Chocolate background. I gave it an Ivory layer and adhered it to a Sandy Beach Base and used the Scripty Holiday stamp set to create an elegant greeting at the bottom.
For my next card, I used the string of lights stamp to create a super simple card that would great for mass-producing Christmas cards.
I simply stamped the string in Amalgam Ink and used the small bulb stamp to create a colored Christmas light affect on the card. I always wanted colored Christmas lights on our tree when I was little, but my mom didn’t like them at all so we never had them. So now that I’m an adult I can live out my dream through this card 🙌🏽 I stamped a fun greeting at the bottom and rounded the edges of the paper to add some detail. Then I used my most favorite tool, the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen, to add sparkle to each of the bulbs. If any of you read one of my recent blog posts, you remember that I couldn’t quite capture the sparkle from the card with my camera. Well lookie here folks….
My camera is a wizard and it was able to capture that insanely gorgeous sparkle. It made me almost a little too happy haha.
I used the “Christmas” word die for this card’s greeting. I die cut it with Red Hot Cardstock three times using Connect Glue to adhere them to each other. This glue is so strong. Connect Glue could hold together my hopes and dreams. It could hold my life together. There is no better glue. (Yes, it is out of stock right now, so please don’t hate me for this promotion haha.)
This one is called “Baby It’s Cold Outside”. The snowflakes are so elegant and look beautiful when foiled.
I made this card using Distress Oxide Inks for the background. I realized quite late in the game that I used a Distress INK pad instead of OXIDE to blend with the two other oxide colors I was using. So if y’all are wondering why it looks a little different (or a little weird)… that’s why. I just foiled the snowflakes in some Sparkling Silver Fancy Foil. I want my walls covered in the sparkly Fancy Foils. I’m serious.
For this next card, I actually accomplished the look I was going for in the first one and replaced the INK with OXIDE. I gotta learn to actually read labels.
