Foil Cards #4 & #5

Hello!  Thank you for visiting my blog.  This is part two of the Foiled Christmas Cards. For this card, I used Creative Vision Foil in Ruby Slippers for the sentiment and the background panel. The sentiment is from Creative Vision Stamps Banner Sentiments (Holiday).  The panel is from a previous Brutus Monroe Inspiration Box.  I put a green bow on the panel, along with a green rhinestone accent and adhered everything to a red card panel.




My final foiled card (for my blog) has a bold geometric back ground.  This back ground is a panel from Brutus Monroe. I used Creative Vision Stamps Ruby Slippers heat transfer foil. I used the same on the sentiment from Creative Vision Stamps (Banner Sentiments).  I then adhere four glittery Christmas Tree stickers above the sentiment. These sticker are from the Dollar Tree! I think they really pop on this card and add some texture!

Foiled Christmas Cards #1 - #3


Hello. Thank you for visiting my blog.  Hope you are ready for Christmas! It's only three days away! I am still working on Christmas Cards (they are going to be late this year) and many of them I made using heat transfer foil.  I am going to show you three cards that I made using foil products from various companies to create these cards. 

Card #1 Reindeer

This cute reindeer came from a pack of die cuts that I purchased at a big box craft store. The sentiment is from Creative Vision Stamps. It is from the Foilable Toner Banner set: Holiday Sentiments. For the sentiment, I used  gold  transfer sheets from Deco-Foil: https://www.brutusmonroe.com/products/deco-foil-transfer-sheets-gold

I used a foilable toner panel that came from a past Brutus Monroe Inspiration Box.  The background was printed with toner, so the foil adheres to the toner when I layer a piece of foil over it and send it through my laminator. For the foil on this panel, I used Brutus Monroe Sunrise Foil Transfer Sheets:  https://www.brutusmonroe.com/collections/deco-foil-collection/products/deco-foil-by-brutus-monroe-6-x-12-sheets-sunrise


To finish the card, I adhered the panel to a red card base. I used foam squares on the reindeer to pop it up off the base of the card and adhered the reindeer and the sentiment to the panel


Card #2 Merry Christmas with Gold Poinsettia accent:



To make this card, I used a Brutus Monroe Foilable Panel (that came in an old Inspiration box). For the foil on this panel, I used Brutus Monroe Sunrise Foil Transfer Sheets:  https://www.brutusmonroe.com/collections/deco-foil-collection/products/deco-foil-by-brutus-monroe-6-x-12-sheets-sunrise

The sentiment is from Creative Vision Stamps. It is from the Foilable Toner Banner set: Holiday Sentiments. For the sentiment, I used  gold  transfer sheets from Deco-Foil: https://www.brutusmonroe.com/products/deco-foil-transfer-sheets-gold

I adhered a gold poinsettia flower to the card panel.  The flower came from a pack of 12 from a big box store. To finish the card, I adhered the panel to a red card base. I used foam squares on the reindeer to pop it up off the base of the card and adhered the reindeer and the sentiment to the panel. 



Card #3 Santa
This Jolly Old St. Nick die cut ephemera came from a pack of die cuts that I purchased at a big box craft store.  I used Creative Vision Stamps heat transfer foil in Ruby Slippers to foil the background panel: http://www.creativevisionstamps.com/transfer-foil-ruby-slippers/

The background panel is another Brutus Monroe toner panel that was in a past inspiration box.  The sentiment "HO HO HO" is from Creative Vision Stamps and I used the Ruby Slippers from Creative Vision Stamps on the sentiment. 
The foil from Creative Vision Stamps is so highly reflective that was challenging to take a good photo of this cute card. 
I used my Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper to round the corners on the panel. I adhered everything to grey card stock. I think this card is super cute!

Checking it Twice | Createful Heart Design

Hello, thank you for stopping by my blog. Today I have a cute card featuring Santa who has his pen in his hand because he's making his list and checking it twice!  The sentiment says "Santa, define good!"
                          


To create this card, I printed the image "Checking It Twice" on my ink jet printer. The image can be purchased at Createful Heart Design here:

For Santa's hair and beard, I used a light gray alcohol marker and just outlined the beard, mustache, eye brows, hair lines, etc. This provided some contrast. I then colored in the beard, hair, eye brows, mustache and the fur trim on Santa's wrists with a white Jelly Roll pen. 

For Santa's face I used flesh toned alcohol markers. I used the same for his hands. I colored his eyes with a blue jelly roll pen and his glasses with a gold gel pen. I used a brown jelly roll pen for his pen and a silver glitter jelly roll pen for the tip of the pen.  Then I used a red alcohol ink marker to fill in around his wrist and  chest (to give it the look of his red suit).

I stamped the sentiment "Santa, define good!" using red pigment ink and then I sprinkled it with festive embossing powder. The embossing powder is red with gold glitter.

I adhered Santa and the sentiment to red glitter stock paper. I then embellished the card with candy canes, a foiled tree, and the north pole post mark (this was a tag but I trimmed it down). Finally, I adhered the glitter stock to a piece of patterned paper.  This is a 6"x6" card.

This is my fourth month as a member of the Design Team for  Createful Heart Design, a digital stamp and digital paper company. The owners of Createful Heart Design, Mary, and her husband Mark draw all the digital stamps by hand and Mary designs the digital papers on her computer. It is exciting to be a part of this design team and I hope that you will check out their online store.Here is a link to the online shop:
