Tarnished Foil Technique

Hey Guys!

It’s been a while since I was last here!  Sorry, life got a bit busy.  I had my trip to Salt Lake City Utah for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event, and WOW I had so much fun! I met up with my SU! Besties and we room together every time!

I came home and 4 days later we went to Vero Beach for a much needed break!  It was so nice to sit and read on the beach!!  I was under the umbrella and the only thing that would have totally made it better was to have a Beach Boy bring me some drinks!  hahaha

Now I am home and I jumped right back in to my ‘work’.  I put the apostrophes there because I have so much fun creating it is sometimes hard to remember that I get PAID!  Love my job, if you want to join my team, just let me know!

On to the Tarnished Foil technique, thanks to my Besties Carol and Hetty for telling me all about it!  I HAD to come home and try my hand at it!

Here are the cards I did on my YouTube video:

Aren’t they stunning?!!  This is a fun and easy technique and no two are alike!  I Love stacking my ribbons, can you see it?  I ‘colored’ my gold edged ribbon with the Bronze Stampin’ Blends so it would go with my project and stacked it with the copper ribbon!  Go check out my video for all the dimensions.

I hope if you live in the States you choose me as your demonstrator!  IF you purchase from me, I will send you one of my cards that I use for my videos!  Shop Now!

As always, the items used for this post are listed below, each picture will link you to my OnLine Store!  I DO have some SAB items for a sneak peek, can’t list them below, but the one I used is called Happy Wishes, and I KNOW you will want it as much as I did!

I’m back to my ‘work’, I am making my Christmas cards, I’ll share those with you next time!!

Christmas in July Card #4! Plus blog candy

The card for today is one of my FAVORITES!  At least so far!  This is card #4 for my Christmas in July Class!  We will be making 16 cards at one time, or at least at one class!  3 cards each of 5 designs!

Here are the others that I have done up to now:

 

I absolutely fell in love with the ribbon for this card when I first saw it in the Catalog!  BUT, in person it was even prettier!!  Of course I had to use it as soon as I got it!

Here is the front and back of this card:

Super simple, but still sooooooo pretty!  Two ink colors, one stamp set!  The only time consuming part is attaching the sequins to the top of the card…….doesn’t have to be put on if you are in a hurry!

Dimensions:

Very Vanilla: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″, 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ front with trees
