You Got This! Encouragement Cards
Hi everyone, welcome to another WOW! Tuesday Blog. Sadly this is the last week for the March “FOILS” monthly challenge at the WOW! Facebook Page. Of course, that does not mean that I won’t continuing sharing with you future projects using the Fab Foils. So, on today’s blog I’m sharing something pretty cool that I used to create foiled splatters on one of the cards. That being said, I hope you keep on reading this post. ↓
For both of the example I used the new Distress Oxide Spray in — Spiced Marmalade. However, for the first example I sprayed a white card panel that I lined up with the Triangle Blast stencil to create the triangles. Once the stencil was all cover it up with the distressed spray I carefully removed the stencil from the card panel, and I set it aside to dry. In the meantime I turned on the Minc Foil Machine with the right heat setting while I stamped the You Got This sentiment with the embossing pad in a piece of white card stock, after the stamping I applied all over it Bonding Powder which soon after I heat embossed it. Once the heat embossing was done, and the Minc machine was ready to foil I cut a piece out the gold foil sheet, and I covered the whole sentiment with it. Then I ran them through the Minc Machine by using the transfer sheet. Once the sentiment was foiled I used the coordinated die which I lined up to die cut it out from the white card stock, once I was done die cutting it, I decided to die cut it also from fun foam.
After all the die cutting was done I started the layout for this card by adhering the inked background to a white card panel, as you can see I trimmed it down creating a white border. Soon after, I adhered the foiled sentiment to the fun foam, then I adhered it to the card panel. You can see the dimension from the fun foam in the picture above. Last but not least, to finish the card off I adhered the card panel to an A2 standard size white side folding card base.
For the second example I freely sprayed the Distresses — Spiced Marmalade ink all over the white card panel, once the card panel had enough ink I set it aside to dry. In the meanwhile, I used the Triangle Element die to die cut twice out of white card stock the triangles. Also, I stamped with the clear embossing pad one of the sentiments from the same stamp set, which I gold heat embossed it. Once the heat embossing was done I used the coordinated die to die cut the sentiment twice once out of the white card stock, and the second time out of fun foam. By the time that I was done with the die cuttings, the card panel was already dried out. However, I decided to lightly sprayed it with the Minc Reactive Mist, as I wanted to give it a touch a shine to the card panel by adding foil to the splatters created from the spray.
NOTE: I must mention that by spraying the reactive mist, I had it to wait until the spray adhesive was completely dry before I ran the card panel though the foil machine.
After waiting a few minutes, I’d said it took between 15 to 30 minutes for the adhesive to completely dry, and as soon it was dry out I cut out of the gold foil sheet a piece bigger enough to cover the whole card panel, once the panel was all covered I ran it through the Minc machine to create the beautiful foiled splatters for the card panel. Once the foiling was done, I could have left it just as it was by adding the sentiment on top of it. However, I decided to adhere the triangle die cutting that I had previously die cut to the card panel along with the fun foam, and the sentiment. Last but certainly not least, to finish I adhered the card panel to an A2 standard size-white side folding card base.
