CAS Stencil Challenge

Hello...

The CAS Stencil challenge this month is to use foil
To be honest I'd decided to give this one a miss - I didn't have a laminator and really didn't want to spray my stencils with the adhesive I have, even though I know some of you have had fabulous results. The thing is I really do like the look of foiling....
Well as it happened, some of my GF's gave me money for my birthday last month so I thought what the heck! I bought an inexpensive laminator (£15) together with Deco paste and using a little heart stencil, I made an anniversary card for friends of ours


Oh my..... It's like when you use embossing powder for the first time... Magic! But more shiny


I cut leaf stems from AI pieces added two vellum banners which I'd stamped and clear embossed, plus a little fussy cut butterfly recycled  from a shop bought birthday card- He blends perfectly
I have to say I'm really happy with the result and my new toy.


Thanks for popping in and have a great day!

This is absolutely delightful Ros, and you are right that the gold foil is so shiny and yummy! I love the added AI die cut leaves and the they have a delicate look, together with the vellum, and the upcycled butterfly is just perfect over the foliage. A gorgeous card. x

WOW!!! Absolutely GORGEOUS card Ros! And such fabulous foiling first time around with your laminator too! I'll be sharing my card on Thursday and my hearts did not come out as perfect as yours (although I do like how my card turned out!), so I'm pretty impressed by how well you did! Love the added ferns, butterfly, and vellum sentiment banners too! Lovely, lovely card my friend!! :0)

This is stunning Ros and worth your purchase...though I am not sure how you have achieved this super look. Must get on U- tube ad maybe think abut a cheap laminator too..never having had one!

Oh, my! I see lots more foiling in your future! This is amazing, Ros, and not just the foiling. The whole card is really beautiful!

You should be happy with this new toy, Ros! What wonderful results! So much better than the spray and your stencil is ready for another use. I may have to look into getting one of these toys!

Wow what a stunner Ros. Another new toy to become addicted too....Fabulous x. Great use of the stencil and a really magical effect from the foiling. I love how you've grouped all the elements together and what a stunning card x.

Marina said...

My problem is that I use the technique and then don't know what to do with what I've made. What a fabulous design this is and such an inspiration on how to do it.

Maria said...

Oh, my goodness, how gorgeous! Love those shiny gold hearts, so pretty! Such a beautiful card with the greenery and butterfly, too! Looks like you had great fun with your new toy!

Oh, man, now you're changing MY mind with your really elegant and shiny anniversary design, Ros! It must be even more gorgeous in person!! Hugs, Darnell

Oh no! Please don't make me want to go down the foiling trail! Oh, but the gorgeous shine you achieved is amazing! Such a beautiful card, Ros!

Robyn Oliver said...

Simply beautiful Ros, that green with the white and gold is perfect.... I too like the foiling look, but don't have the equipment, I think my daughter has a laminator, so I'll have to read up about it.. your card is really inspiring me... have a fabulous weekend, hugs Robyn

Greta said...

I agree with you about the "wow" factor with foil & gotta say you had incredible results! Maybe I need to get Deco paste!

Sue Lelli said...

WOW! Those shiny hearts with the butterfly and fern are LOVELY!

Barbara said...

Mmmh... I do have a laminator - so one more thing to try. I guess I need to have a closer look at it first, though. The outcome here is gorgeous and you are right: the shine is incredible!
