Hello crafty friends, today I have a quick and easy way to create special effects on your cards with a stamped foil background. During this month we have two challenges, to use Rinea Foiled Paper and to use the gingerbread color. To be honest, it as a little difficult for me to define the gingerbread color because in Imagine we have many options of colors of inks, so I used StazOn Gothic Purple, which is not a gingerbread tone, with papers on the line of gingerbread.
Time: 30 minutes
I stamped several times the Lineal Floral Background from Pinkfresh Studios over a piece of Glossy Marigold/Gold Rinea Foil Paper using the StazOn Gothic Purple and let the ink dry for a few minutes. Misti or Stamparatus are fantastic tools in this process because you don’t need to move or re-position your paper or stamp to re-stamp your image in the same place.
I cut the background with a postage die cut to resize the layer and make it more attractive.
On the above photo, you can notice the fabulous texture created over the Rinea Foil Paper with this ink.
To finalize my card, I created a Cajun Craze card base and the second layer in Very Vanilla cardstock that I used as the mat for the Stamped Foil Background. I pasted the stamped piece directly over the cardstock using Tear Tape It! Then, using a Simon Say Stamp Wafer Dies Good Vibes, I cut the word friend using the same colors of cardstock and complemented with the “thanks” word that I stamped over an oval die cut with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
