Alcohol Inks and Foil

Hello, It’s Saturday once again, and time for Trend Week over at Just Us Girls. Ina is our hostess and she has a fun challenge for us. She wants us to incorporate both Alcohol Ink and Foiling together. Since I have yet to purchase a foil machine, I decided to use those Gold Gilded Flakes by Nuvo to achieve the same effect. I wasn’t overly thrilled with my inked panel but in the end, once I figured out what to do with it, it came out just fine. The peacock die came to my rescue for sure and is from Poppy Stamps. The greeting is heat embossed and I believe is from Verve.

You know I love to play over at Happy Little Stampers so I will be linking up with them for their Anything Goes with Dies!

Now, jump on over to Just Us Girls and check out all the fabulous submissions by the DT and guest-Mac Mable using these types of products! I bet you will be inspired to play along! I sure hope so!

Take care, Nanc’



Hello, Today’s card is for the new topping over at Seize the Birthday. The topping this time around is Candles, chosen by Shirley.  I had so much fun breaking out my laminator and my Gina K. Foil-Mates to make this card. You may not be able to tell in the photo but the background is foiled in Turquoise Sea and the candles are in Passionate Pink. The sentiment is from Verve and one of my favorite sets. The heart border is a Martha Stewart Punch.  The candles are from Elizabeth Craft Designs, one of my all time favorite purchases. I also have a lot of dimensionals used on this card as well.

Please come by and join us! Nanc’




Merry and Holiday

Got a quick pair of cards today for CAS Mix Up Card Challenge.  It’s so hard to photograph foiling. For my cards…I chose to use foiling, with stamping and die-cutting. My foil is from Gina K, the snowflakes are Memory Box, and the sentiments are Verve. A few rhinestones in the center of my snowflakes and I was done.  I am nearly done with my Christmas cards and now it’s time to work on the ones for the store!

Have a creative day, Nanc’
