Technique Junkies – Foiled Pinecone

Hello, Junkies!

The Crafty Nurse here with some Autumn splendor using gold foiling.  I have a great kit from Indigo Blu, but any sticky glue and foil will do.

Stamps: Pinecone #SD821 and Autumn Set of 6

Supplies: A Colorful Life’s “Square Fade Stencil”, Delicata Gold Ink, My Favorite Things Flag Die, Flitter Glu, Tricolor foil, Distress Ink.

I love an interesting background and often just try things to see how they work.  The base layer of cardstock is colored using extra Distress ink I “mopped up” from my craft mat using a baby wipe and pouncing it on card stock.  The next layer is the gorgeous Delicata Gold ink on black card stock using the very detailed Autumn Set of 6 set. For the focal image, I started with more of the mopped up ink then over that I stenciled the Square Fade stencil using a light touch and making sure to heat set.  I then stamped the pine cone using Flitterglu and foiled.

We hope to see you in the Facebook group and participating in our monthly challenge over at the Design Team Blog.

Happy Inking!!

Technique Junkies – Golden Beauty

The Crafty Nurse here with mid-week inspiration.

Today, I’ve used the “Vine Beauty” to create a golden beauty.

My background is gold glitter paste applied through a marque stencil. You can also use translucent embossing paste and apply gold embossing powder over the top.  I then sprayed with Distress Mica Spray in Tarnished Brass.  My “Vine Beauty” is stamped with Delicata Golden Glitz using my MISTI and also sprayed with Mica.  I then hand doodled a frame using the BEST gold marker called, “Extra Fine Point Paint Marker” by Pilot.

We are getting ready for the BIGGEST holiday release yet on September 1st.  Until then, please join us at the Facebook group and over on the Design Team Blog for our challenge.

Happy Inking
