CASology: Foil

Hello! I'm back today with a new cue from CASology!

I love foiling! It's one of my very favorite techniques and I have a ton of stencils that work so well with my Deco Foil Transfer Gel.

For this card, I positioned my stencil in the upper left corner of the card and then used some post it tape to tape off the areas surrounding the circular stencil that I didn't want to get messy with my gel. I spread the gel on top of the stencil with a palette knife and then removed the stencil and the tape. I set it aside to dry (about 30 minutes) and then ran it through my MINC with some rose gold foil.

I used my MISTI to stamp my sentiment on some black cardstock in Versamark ink and then heat embossed it with some white powder. I used my scissors to cut a flagged end and then attached it to my card base with some foam tape. To finish it off, I added a few rose gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to link up your FOIL creations to the linky on the CASology page!

CASology: Bug

Hello, everyone! I know I haven't been posting as much  lately and that's because my dog had surgery recently. Nothing serious, she just had a tumor removed, but I've had to keep an eye on her so she doesn't open her stitches. And she's quite the handful when it comes to keeping still! So because of that, I've been spending a lot of time shut in the bedroom where there aren't as many things for her to scratch her butt on (which is where her stitches are!).

Anyway, on to today's post! It's time for a new cue from CASology!

Whenever I see a cue like this, I automatically think of this super cute set from Sunny Studio Stamps. It has the most adorable little ants that are invading a picnic.

I started this card by stamping my tiny scene with my sentiment beneath it using my MISTI. Then I used an oval die to cut it out. I did a little simple coloring with my Copics and then adhered it to a Kraft card base. Super simple, but super cute!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope to start updating my blog more frequently now that Molly has her stitches out and I don't have to watch her so closely. So stop by again soon for more cardmaking fun!

CASology: Abstract

Welcome back for another brand new cue from CASology!

I have the perfect die cut for this cue: an abstract heart from Neat & Tangled!

This card is super simple to pull together. I started by cutting a piece of toner paper with my heart die and then using my Minc to add gold foil to it. I then cut another heart from a black cardstock panel and adhered it to a black card base.

I inlaid the foiled die cut and then carefully replaced all the small black pieces that I die cut from the panel.

I finished off the card by heat embossing the sentiment in gold below my inlaid piece.

Super simple! Thanks for stopping by!
