foil embossing

I bumped into a technique that using heavy duty  aluminum foil and our new embossing  floral folder.  Glue foil unto cardstock, wrap the edges around to the back.  We used a brayer to smooth out the foil.  Run the foil through your cuddlebug and with the alcohol ShinHan markers color the raised area with a light touch. Place the foil on cardstock card base that matches the markers used. I used Thistle.
This would look nice with a black sentinment.

October Blog hop

Welcome to our October Blog hop, We have lots to share and you may even get a glimpse of samples featuring our NEW "Artfully Sent" Cricut cartridge.

This month I have been having lots of fun using the NEW Artfully Sent.  One of my favorite cards I made is this nativity pop-up. It goes very well with the stamp set D1614 Reason for the Season. 
I used Yuletide Carol paper packet x7187B
Glitter paper  Z1830 
Bling gems gold  Z2023
Liquid glass z679

Can you believe that all those shapes were cut from the Cricut?  The insert provides the pop out ledges to put your figures on.  The star was cut out of the insert and I backed it with glitter paper. Love that stuff!!! I used Basic paper fundamentals Z1939 for the black paper, notice it has a glossy pattern to it.  This paper comes in many different colors and designs on both sides.This paper cuts great on the cricut: I will be showing more ideas with this paper in my next posts.

       Now hop over to my good friend BETTY  to see her wonderful entry.
