CAS MIX UP - Foiling

Hi there. I'm so excited to announce I'm joining the CAS Mix Up Challenge Design Team, along with Linda from Life in the Craft Lane and Ros Crawford from Mikey's Mom.  We are replacing the uber talented Mac Mable, who is having a a break - yes it takes 3 of us to replace MAC:) I really love this challenge and hope that my creations will be able to inspire you!

This month is hosted by the brilliant Bonnie, who is challenging us to use foil on our cards. 

I created an alcohol ink background and because it had some sticky bits, I covered it with the gold foil and burnished it until the foil adhered to all the sticky bits. Next I covered some card stock with Minc reactive paint, dried it with a heat tool and then covered it with foil and passed it through the Minc laminator. Then I die-cut the flower, stamped the sentiment and mounted it all on a white card base.

Stamp: Penny Black Banner Sentiments
Die: Alexandra Renke Magnolia

I have included Alcohol Inks, Foiling, die-cutting and stamping on my card.

We are happy to have Michelle Ferguson from I Card Everyone, as our Guest Designer this Month.
Please visit our blog to see Michelle's card and the beautiful creations from the rest of our team.
We also have link to videos which will inspire you.
We look forward to seeing your cards in our gallery this month:)
