Using Deco Foil and Die Cuts

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a super easy card using Deco Foil and Die Cuts!

While I was at Creativiation in January, my friends from Thermoweb gave me a couple of the new Watercolor Deco Foil!! I have to say they are so pretty!! I haven’t had a chance to play with them until now.

Take a look at a picture I posted on Instagram when I came back:

Aren’t these colors pretty?  Here are the names:

  1. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Amber Watercolor
  2. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Summer Rainbow Watercolor
  3. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Amethyst Watercolor
  4. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Lapis Watercolor
  5. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Emerald Watercolor

Since its St. Patrick’s Day, I figured today is the best time to use the Emerald Watercolor Deco Foil!

Take a look at my card:

I love the watercolor effect this foil gives off.

Here is how I created this card:

  1. I measured the Simon Says Stamp Lucky To Know You die so that I could measure the Deco Foil Peel n Stick Toner Sheets and theEmerald Watercolor Deco Foil.
  2. I placed the Emerald Watercolor Deco Foil on top of the Deco Foil Peel n Stick Toner Sheet and ran it through my laminator.
  3. Once the sheet comes out of the laminator, die cut the foil sheet.
  4. Since the toner sheet is a peal and stick, all you have to do is adhere it to the black cardstock.

Take a closer look:

Nice and easy. Using Deco Foil and Die Cuts are a fun way to make a quick card in no time.

What do you think?  I would love to hear from you below!

What’s even better is a SALE!!!

{Clean and Simple} CASology – Foliage

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

While I was at Creativation this year, I stopped by Waffle Flowers booth and fell in love with their flower dies!!  I knew I had to collet them all and I did.

Today I’m using the Waffle Flower Crafts Magical Flower die to represent “Foliage”!

I used Distress Oxides Cracked Pistachio, Fired Brick, Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade to add color to the flowers.

Then I used foam tape to adhere the flower to the card front.

Once the die was in placed, I used the Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment from Sweet Stamp Shop Encourage stamp set on the card front.

To finish the card off, I used We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board to round three of the card’s corners.

Nice and Easy.

  3. Then I sprayed the stamp with water and stamped the card front.

  5. After that, I die cut the sentiment grateful from Concord & 9th Grateful Leaf Die twice and adhered it to the card front.
  6. Then I stamped the rest of the sentiment using Concord & 9th Lace Leaf Stamp Set using Clearsnap Colorbox Archival Black Ink.
