Product of the month class

Yesterday I held the first class using the new Product of the month at Craft Plus UK. For April its Wow Fab Foils, they come in 14 colours and you can use them with either hot or cold techniques.

 Todays post features one of the cards from the class using the Stamps by Chloe Flower Border Builder stamp set and a sentiment from Sweet Dixie.

 I used the purple foil on top of some double sided tape, the tape was attached to the card first, then take off the top strip and apply the foil....COLOUR SIDE UP....on top of the tape and using your fingers rub and burnish the foil to the tape. Whip the foil off and you have a lovely foil strip. For the flowers I used Bonding Powder. I stamped the base layer of the stamp with a Lavender ink pad then stamped the top flower stamp with Versamark Ink and then sprinkled Bonding Powder over the top. Its similar to embossing powder, you heat with a heat gun, it takes longer as the granules are a little thicker. Then immediately apply the foil over the stamped area and rub again like on the tape or you can run I through your die cutting machine.

You are not cutting anything just applying even pressure. Remove the foil and you get a gorgeous foiled image. I have to say foiling is not the easiest thing to photograph, especially as I am only using  phone but the cards are available to view in shop for a closer look. The grass and two stems come in the stamp set. There are special offer of 10% off the Wow Fab Foils and Bonding Powder and 30% the First Edition products .

Keep an eye out for more cards during the month featuring foiling.
