Hey stampers! It’s Laura here and I’m sharing another Saturday Stamp Day card and video. In today’s video, I’m showing you how to create three quick and easy cards using one of the hottest products right now… FOIL!
First, I picked out stamps from the Sparkle and Shine stamp set from Neat and Tangled and from the The Big, The Bold and Fun stamp set from Winnie & Walter. I mounted these stamps on my MISTI so I could easily stamp these on multiple card bases. I used Versamark ink and then I sprinkled them using a fabulous product called Bonding Powder from Wow! Embossing Powder. This is a sticky embossing powder to add foil to cards. After heat setting the embossing powder, I used foil from Heidi Swapp and Wow! Embossing Powder to create a gorgeous foiled effect.
I also wanted to create a foiled card. This was a bit trickier than I thought it would be. For the silver base, I used a new product called Stick It and some Heidi Swapp foil. It’s an easy and fast way, but the downside is that the result isn’t perfect. Since I wasn’t really satisfied, I ended up using card stock with a foiled look to it. It’s faster and it looks so pretty!
Before I go, I wanted to let you know that I am taking a break from card making/ video making and blogging for a while. There are two reasons for that. The first one is that I don’t have a lot of spare time since I am busy for school again. Second reason is that I am not enjoying card making as much as I did a while ago unfortunately. I think that’s because I only have a small amount of time to create cards nowadays. So whenever I have that small amount of time free, I get stressed out and I don’t know what to create. That’s why I decided to take a break from card making. I don’t know for how long yet, but I will try to pop in now and then to give you an update.
I really hope to be back soon…. THANK YOU so much for all of your support and sweet comments the past couple of months. You are the best and I love you all. XO
