Magenta and Pool G-LLama-rous Card

LLamas on a magenta background??  YES, PLEASE!

Offspring3 went birthday shopping for me (with some additional funding from Offspring1), and she found this Die Cuts With A View (DCWV) pad that has llamas AND magenta foil. Who knew this existed???

I will probably hoard the pages with magenta foil while I come up with the PERFECT projects.  😉

Supplies: Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – DCWV No Prob Llama, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pool Party, ink – VersaMark, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Classy Copper, organdy ribbon – Offray.

Foiled Floral Birthday Card

My gym friend, Sherry, gave me some paper that was used underneath fabric during a dye process.

I stamped some pressed flowers and had to dry the ink with my heat gun (the paper has a coating – it feels a bit like a heavyweight butcher’s paper). I embossed the leaves with clear embossing powder, then put it through my laminator with Ranger foil.

WOW! I have never had such good results with foiling. Not sure if this is related to the embossing powder I used (Stampendous), the solid aspect of the leaf image, or the brand of foil (Ranger).

Supplies: Stamps – A Muse Artstamps, Papertrey Ink, Stampin’ Up!, paper – dyed butcher’s paper, Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream, Stampin’ Up! Elegant Eggplant, inks – Stampin’ Up! Elegant Eggplant, Pear Pizzazz, Wild Wasabi (retired), Wisteria Wonder (retired), VersaFine Onyx Black, VersaMark, dies – Lawn Fawn, transfer foil – Ranger, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear.
