Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Foil and Glimmer

Hi Crafters,

This is the last Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop of 2019 and our theme is Foil and Glimmer.  Oh the possibilities!  Keep hopping with us for international inspiration featuring Stampin' Up! products.  I love anything sparkly or shiny so this theme was a real treat!

I've made two cards, one featuring Stampin' Up!'s Silver Glimmer Paper and the other showcases our Gold Foil Sheets.  The cards have been made with the same layout and techniques but they look pretty different!  

For the card above I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and placed tape along all four sides to create a frame.  I added colour to the centre area with Flirty Flamingo and Smoky Slate inks, blending in the middle.  I removed the tape and stamped my sentiment which is from the So Many Stars stamp set in Silver Delicata metallic ink.  It shows up much better in real life.  I adhered a star flourish die cut in Silver Glimmer Paper and then mounted the panel onto a Smoky Slate card base with liquid glue.  

My second card is a little more stepped up with an embossing folder and some gold pearl embellishments.  I used the same technique with the tape and Daffodil Delight and Old Olive inks.  I embossed the panel using the Country Floral 3D embossing folder.  I used gold foil sheet for the die cut sentiment and stacked this on top of three plain Whisper White die cuts for added dimension.  To finish I adhered three groups of gold pearls in a triangular formation to draw the eye around the sentiment.  

I hope our hop is making you feel sparkly and to keep hopping just click arrow button below to head to Amanda's wonderful creation.  Thanks so much for hopping along with us throughout 2019 and if you're new, we have lots more inspiration in store in 2020.  

Happy crafting,

  1. ooh, I like them both. But the simplicity of the 1st one really makes the Stars pop. What a great idea to do the 2 cards, so much the same and so different. TFS

  2. Very pretty. You showed that we don’t need to make it complicated to get beautiful cards. TFS!

  3. Simply beautiful card designs. Love how different they look

  4. Awesome cards! It's neat how 2 cards can use the same design but be very different.

  5. Love this technique, for some reason I never thought to do this on an embossed surface! Did you use sponges to apply the ink? Thanks for sharing :-D

  6. They look so cool! Love the 2 different looks! I think, just because of the color combo being a favorite of mine, the first one is my favorite card! The inking is a technique I will have to check out!
