Stamping Sunday Bog Hop - Fabulous Foil

Welcome to our Stamping Sunday blog hop, this fab hop is hosted by the lovely and talented Sara Levin. 
You may know her by her blog name The Artful Inker
I feel very lucky to be part of this wonderful group 😊 You are currently here with me Kim Oliver of Australia.
Today we are sharing some inspirational projects using the gorgeous Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate 
I chose to pair my Fabulous Foil with the 'Whole Lot Of Lovely' DSP.
When I saw this gorgeous DSP I just fell in love with it and ordered it with my very first order!
But me being me I got caught up doing other things hahaha.
There are so just many gorgeous products in this new catalogue I got sidetracked, I was playing with daisies for just a little while. lol
 So, this is the first chance I have actually had to play and create with this delicious DSP!

I have to say I was impressed with how my projects finished.
I hope you like them too!

OK, without further ado
Here are my projects for your viewing pleasure.

I Adore You

What do you think?
Can you see why I fell in love with this DSP?  It is just so striking!
And this is only one of the gorgeous sheets in the pack!

From the Fabulous Foil Designer acateate sheets I chose the Dragon Scale sheet for both of my projects. These sheets come in 12" x 12" and I have to say are just gorgeous!

For my Card.

  • My card base and front were created using Basic Black card stock. The base is an A4 piece folden in half then cut at 10.5 cm.
  • The Gold Foil shet has been cut 4mm smaller on both top and bottom edges. 
  • The black card front has been cut another 4mm smaller along the top and bottom edges then glued to the gold foil sheet.
  • I die cut the acetate using the layering squares framelits the largest straight edge square was used. 
  • I thought that the gold foil sheets would add a touch more richness to my design so, I added the scalloped frame around the outside of the fab foil acetate window as well. This was created using the largest scalloped edge square and the second largest straight edge square.
  • I fussy cut the flowers from the floral black and Tangerine Tango sheet and mounted them on mini dimesnionals. The touch of Pool Party really aids in making this card pop.
  • My sentiments are from the Graceful Garden stamp set, I just love the font used for them!
  • To bring the Pool Party Colour out even more I added craft white re-inker to a few drops of Pool Party re-inker on a clear block. I mixed and spread this with a Palette knife. I then stamped the sentiments into the mixture and then onto my card front.
  • For the inside of my card I used Thick Whipser white over Gold Foil. I added a small strip of DSP to the right edge. This helped to continue the colour and floral theme to the inside and gave a lovely clean area for writing..

I think this gorgeous set would make a wonderful anniversary gift!
What do you think?
Too floral for a man? 
Perhaps I can give them to my hubby, to give to me! way of making sure I avctually get an anniversary present this year!

For the Window Box

  • I cut the box out with the window box thinlits in basic black.
  • When I did this, I used the hexagonal floral cut out at the same time for the lid. 
  • I then traced around the outside of the hexagonal floral cut out using my paper piercing tool on gold foil and cut it out with paper snips.
  • I cut out three windows from the basic black window box base using the layering squares.
  • I glued my window box together using a mixture of Tombow and Fast Fuse along the tabs.
  • I glued my gold foil hexagon to the inside of the lid.
  • I cut three Fabulous Foil windows to fit and glued them in place.
  • I then cut three Gold Foil scalloped frames and glued them over the top.
  • Once again usning the layering squares I cut three pieces of the DSP and three black frames to pop over the top to help finish the edges and give them a clean crisp look.
  • To finish this ittle box and make it match the card even more I fussy cut another boquet and added loops of gold thread underneath. 
  • I then positioned this on top of the box and held it all in place with dimensionals.

    1. Thank you so much Sara, I saw these tow together almost immediately!

  3. These projects are truly adorable Kim! So very striking. Love the use of gold over black ... it looks like enameling. It is hard to believe the box is paper!!!! xxx

    1. Thank you so much Cheryll, I actually thought about sealing it with a sealer, but that would actually have to be done before applying the gold acetate and foil.

  4. Love your projects Kim, they are so pretty .. gold and black always doing well ')
