Here is my super FUN creation using products from the new release…..CHECK IT!!!!
Adding foiled details to the floral elements of your card brings them onto another level. My first card features the new beautiful Sparkle Bright Stamp & Die & Hot Foil Plate Bundle that I used to make such an element.
I started making my card by creating the said floral element. First, I added foiled details onto Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock using the Sparkle Bright Hot Foil Plate and Spellbinders Polished Brass Glimmer Foil (I was using Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System to do foiling).
Even though on the finished element foiled details look like they're on top, I did this layer first as otherwise, it would be quite difficult to perfectly align the solid hot plate along with a stamped image.
Next, I did stamping using the Sparkle Bright Stamp Set. One (of many) great things about foil is that this material is non-porous and it resists stamping on top of it (or ink blending, watercoloring for that matter). For stamping, I used the recently released new Pistachio, Green Opal, and Green Onyx Crisp Dye Inks.
Finally, I die cut the floral piece using the Sparkle Bright Die.
After that, I moved on to creating the background. I used the new Tree bark 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to a white card panel.
Next, the panel was cut into several strips (or planks). Each strip I also cut in two pieces (at different distances from the edge for each strip). I inked the edges of each piece using the Pistachio Dye Ink and then adhered them onto a white panel, building up a wood planks board.
For additional interest, I added some splatters onto the panel and after that popped up the floral element onto it. After that, the panel was foam mounted onto a white card base using the Instant Dimension Foam Tape.
The new large Glided Rose Hot Foil Plate is just breathtaking. I used it to create the background of my second card.
First, I foiled the rose onto a Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock panel using Spellbinders Cobalt Blue Hot Foil. After that, I colored it using the Gilded Rose Layering Stencil Set. As far as the inks go I used the Blueberry and Tanzanite Crisp Dye Inks. The Mini Blending Brushes were used for ink blending. There are four layers of the rose; I did them using only two inks thanks to the nature of dye inks. Building up layers you can intensity ink blending color. I used the Blueberry Crisp Dye Ink for the first two layers and Tanzanite Crisp Dye Ink for the third and fourth ones.
I added two blue foil cardstock strips onto the panel and then adhered it onto a blue foil cardstock panel of a slightly larger size. After that, I foam mounted it onto a white card base.
