Together with Love for CAS Mix Up

Hi there.

It's time for a new challenge at CAS Mix Up!

This month I'm hosting and we're doing....

When I was at the ESCR retreat last May, we had a play with foiling and laminators.

This is a piece I did then and it's so nice to get it on a card!

We used some special glue on a stamp, stamped it onto our cardstock, laid a
piece of foil on top and put it through the laminator.  I used a holographic foil 
and I love how the foil changes when the light hits it.

I've die cut the image, stamped and heat embossed a sentiment on vellum and
placed it popped up with foam on a dry embossed background.

There are several video links for foiling at the challenge site and not all of them
require a laminator which is good since I don't have one.

Our wonderful Design Team is joined by the very talented, Michele this month
I hope you'll add some foil to a project and share it with us at CAS Mix Up.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

VERY pretty! I know the shine of the foil is gorgeous too.

LOVE how the light shines with the holographic foil, Bonnie. Those flowers just sparkle! Great coverage, which is not as easy with a stamped image. Your flowers are perfect and love the vellum banner. xx

Having seen many of the foiled card on this challenge I'm amazed that everyone got such perfect coverage. You did a fabulous job on this Bonnie! Love it and hoping in my future for one success story.

Beautiful Bonnie, now I have to pull out my laminator. I haven't used it since the retreat :)

wow...how gorgeous Bonnie. I haven't had much success to date with foiling but maybe I will be encouraged to re-visit it.

SUBLIME, I agree with you on the use of Holographic Foil. Such a fine choice. You've definitely mastered this technique and what a beautiful design too. Like the sentiment I LOVE this card xx

Bonnie this is amazing... aren't we lucky to have those videos to watch? You were extra lucky to have that gang of talented makers to show you the way without a laminator - it's fabulous!
Thanks for inviting me to play cards with you!! xx

I had to catch my breath on this one, Bonnie. It is so beautiful. The shine comes through so well and it is just awesome.

Susan said...

So beautiful!! Love the shine and the variation of colours that particular foil gives! Great layout with the domed die for the focal image panel and the vellum sentiment strip.

Bobby said...

I love the colors the holographic foil gives your lovely flower, Bonnie.

Barb Ghig said...

Gorgeous foiling, Bonnie! I love all the sparkle and that you embossed your sentiment on vellum...just perfect in every way!

Linda said...

I love how the light catches the foiling, the different colours look so pretty. It's a lovely stamp, perfect for this technique.
I'm so pleased to be part of such a talented DT .... thank you for having me xx

I love the gorgeous sparkle and shine of the holographic foil flowers, Bonnie! You got great results with stamping with the special glue.
The contrasting combination of the translucent vellum and the sparkly foil looks amazing and so interesting! Thanks so much for hosting this fun challenge this month!
