Foiled Again!

Hello!

Just popping in to share 2 more foiled makes using the Wow Bonding Powder and Fab Foils....I may have become slightly obsessed!  

First up is a card using our Rat Pack stencil and a new stencil called Stacked Lines in the background:


I simply inked through the stencil with embossing ink, added the bonding powder, heat set and ran the image through my laminator with copper fab foil.  I also heat embossed a sentiment from Clearly Besotted and created a background using copper texture paste through the lines stencil.  I shall link up at The Male Room Challenge where the theme is currently embossing.

 I used our Four Hearts stencil on this card with the copper foil and also foiled a die cut heart and strip of adhesive.  The sentiment from MFT is heat embossed.  I shall enter the foil challenge at CAS Stencils for a second time and also link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where the theme is to add a sentiment.


I hope that you like these shiny cards!  You can buy the bonding powder, embossing pads and foils in store at www.funkyfossil.co.uk.  It is great fun to try out with your stencils and stamps.

Thanks for stopping by,

Fun with Foil

Hello!

I have recently added some Wow! Bonding Powder and Fab Foil to the shop and it would have been rude not to play with it :)  I am so impressed with the coverage that the foil gave when I inked through the stencil designs, embossed with the bonding powder and put it through a laminator.


I used our Butterfly Heart with blush foil and also foiled the sentiment from MFT.  I shall link up at the CAS Stencil Challenge where the focus is on foiling this month.

Continuing with the butterfly theme, I foiled up our Geometric Butterfly and combined it with our Butterfly Flurry:


I heat embossed the butterfly flurry with Wow Rose Gold embossing powder to complement the foiled butterfly.

Here are the products that I have used on these cards - all available at www.funkyfossil.co.uk:

Rainy Day Crafting

Hello!

I hope that you have stayed warm and dry today....it has been very wet and windy here so I have had no choice but to retreat to my craft room :)  

There is a new challenge over at Less is More so I thought that I would play along with some of the smaller stamps from our Scandi Home stamp set.  The theme is More but still CAS....


Here is what I made:


I simply masked a circle in the centre and used that as a guide to stamp the heart and mini flower motif from our Scandi Home stamp set.  I think that teal and red is a lovely combo!  The sentiment in the centre is from our Blooming Birthday stamp set.

I shall also link up at Seize the Birthday's challenge where the twist is white space and at Time Out where I have used birthday as my prompt from the word inspiration which celebrates Uniko's 8th birthday!

I have also made a second card for the current love challenge at The Male Room and there is not a heart in sight!


I used some That's Crafty texture paste through our Distressed Triangles stencil, die cut an aperture and added one of our mdf positive words and mdf minis painted white.


If you like any of the products that I have used on today's makes, remember that we currently have 15% off everything in store when you use the code HEART15 before midnight on Monday 17 February :)

Pug Love

Hello!

Happy Valentine's Day :)  I thought that I would share a card that I have made with our adorable pug stamps.  He is looking for love....


I inked up our Heartlines stencil in ombre shades of blue and used our Let's Talk stencil to create the little speech bubble.

I shall link up at The Male Room Challenge where the theme is love and at Addicted to CAS where we are using ombre techniques.

We are having a valentine weekend sale in store this weekend with 15% off everything when you use the code HEART15 at checkout.

Explore the World

Hello!

I wanted to play along with the fab challenge over at Less is More - particularly as this is their 9th birthday month :)  The challenge is tiny and few which was quite difficult.  Although I like white space I found it really difficult to use minimal supplies!


This is the card that I made:


I simply masked a circle and inked it with blue and green inks so that it looked a bit like earth before stamping a few of the small elements from our Adventure stamp set.  And it is a one layer card!

I hope you like this CAS design.  Although there are some large focal images and sentiments in the stamp set, there are smaller elements too.....Adventure



The challenge is sponsored by the amazing Uniko too.....they are celebrating their 8th birthday this month :)

More CAS cards

Hello!

I have been having fun this week playing with some of our new stencil designs which are now available in store at www.funkyfossil.co.uk.  There are designs to suit male or female cards, CAS cardmakers and mixed media fans!  Here are a few that I have made which are more CAS.

First up is this lovely bold Protea bloom.  It is a quick way to make a card front - add a sentiment and your done! 


I simply inked the flower with distress oxides and added some splatters.  I shall link up at Simon's Monday Challenge where there is a Floral Frenzy. 

Next up is our new Grid Stencil and Micro Squares.  These are fab for adding layers and interest to cards - particularly male designs. 


I simply inked through the grid in pale blue and green, fading out from the centre and stamped the image from our Adventure stamp set over the top.  I love the way that the grid is showing through the stamped image!  I did also use the micro squares as part of the fade out but they are hard to see on this picture.....

I shall link up at Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge where the theme is positive.  I think that the Adventure set has a really positive vibe!



I inked through the grid and the micro squares on this card front varying the colour and fading towards the card centre before adding some stamped elements from the Adventure set again.  

I hope you like these new stencils....

All loved up!

Hello!

The build up to Valentine's day must have got to me this year as I have added a few more heart based stencils to the shop this week and have made the following cards with them....


First up I used our new Heart Lines stencil with That's Crafty Texture Paste (which we also sell in store now too!) on kraft card.  I simply added one of the cute pugs from Pugs and Hugs and a punny sentiment :)  I shall link up at Time Out where we are being Affectionate and at Simon's Monday Challenge where the theme is Loved Up.

On my next card I have used our new Quirky Owls stamp set along with the new Sweet Hearts stencil.  I sprayed through the stencil with That's Crafty Flat Matte Spray in Rose.  It is a lovely colour.


I shall join in at Simon's Wednesday Anything Goes challenge with this card.

Here are the products that I have used today:
