Getting Fab with Foil Blog Hop
Hello Everyone. Thank you for hopping along with ScrapnStamp.ca‘s Getting Fab with Foil Blog Hop ! I am thrilled you hopped along. Giveaway and prize information is at the end, please be sure to read on.
Getting Fab with Foil features five Canadian designers using Ranger Foil Sheets. Ranger Foil Sheets are Shiny Transfer Foil Sheets that require no heats or fancy tools. They work with a little pressure against something sticky. For example, adhesive sheets, adhesive strips or double sided tape even Sticky Embossing Powder.
The great thing about ScrapnStamp.ca blog hops is that it is always interesting and entertaining to see how different we create with the same item – in this hop – Ranger Foil Sheets.
Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper and Ranger Distress Ink in Fire Brick and Candied Apple along with a few Ranger Mini Blending Tools were used to create a blend of ink over the sheet of Bristol Smooth Card Stock. Fired Brick Ink was added to the bottom, blending Candied Apple Ink over the rest.
Water droplets were sprinkled with a Distress Sprayer. The water was wicked away with paper towel. Heat was applied to ensure the ink was dry. Distress Oxide Inks in Fired Brick and Candied Apple were applied in the same manner with Fired Brick at the bottom and Candied Apple , the rest. Once the newly applied ink covered the previous surface. The paper was sprayed again with Distress Sprayer making sure enough water droplets were dispersed over the distressed sheet. Careful not to leave the moisture on the surface too long. Heat was applied . Finally, Distress Inks in Fired Brick and Candied Apple are applied onto the dry cooled surface.
A Crate Paper acrylic stamp (border image) was inked with glue and applied to the distressed background, using the pencil line as a guide. A Ranger Foil Sheet in orange was placed over the glue stamped image and pressure was applied with a wide tongue depressor rubbing in a back and forth motion until one could see the foil transfer onto the paper underneath.
A card front was cut to a size. MFT’s Love die was centred and cut from the card front and black Fun Foam. A piece of black fun foam was adhered to the back of the card front panel. The letters LOVE die cut were attached to the corresponding Fun Foam letters and then placed back into the die cut card front.
The inside panel was stamped with Happy Valentines Day and I , You with the same Crate Paper acrylic stamp set ( Main Squeeze) and glue. Ranger Foil Sheets in black were applied to the inside of the card in the same fashion as the card front . A multi colour foil sheet was also used to add a bit of pizzazz to Happy Valentines Day and the words I and You. A small heart was added between I You to read: I Heart You.
From the distressed background an Impression Obsession Die cut a heart border . Quickie Glue Pen was used to adhere it to the inside panel. The panel was attached to the inside of the card base. The card front was then attached to the front of the card base. This card is complete.
