Getting Fab with Foil

Hello Everyone. Thank you for hopping along with‘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  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.

Lawn Fawn Heart Dies   cut  black fun foam and blended card stock into various sized hearts and then adhered to one another with Glossy Accents and Quickie Glue Pen. Getting Fab with Foil

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.

Love your elegant addition of the strip of foiled hearts on your card. It looks like a trimming of shiny lace. Very classy.
