Unity GIU day 3

  It's HUMP day today!!!  And, Happy Halloween!
The cards I am showing today use foil but NO laminator.  I use double sided adhesive for foiling today : )



I stamped the pumpkin twice and the sentiment once from the Unity set Faith Family Fall using Black Nuvo Hybrid ink. Next, on a fresh piece of cardstock, I stamped the Barn Wall image in Distress ink. The pumpkin image is stamped on the base cardstock, and layered with a fussy cut image that is colored with Copics.  The flower top was cut from yet another image that was fussy cut after coloring it in.
  I sponged a touch of Distress ink on the panel and around the edges and added a touch of an orange shade on it as well.
  For the foiling, I took 1/4" score tape and ripped it, added some ripped pieces to random spots on the background.  I used Gold foil that was colored with an E7 Copic marker and added the foil to the areas where there was tape.  Next, I added 1/4" score tape to the paremeter of the card, leaving a mere 1/16" on the edge.  That foil is also gold colored with E7 Copic marker.  On the edge, I colored a border with E37 Copic. I added jewels to the card. The sentiment is embossed with Ranger Queens Gold EP on Vellum, and added to the corner of the card.
 It is very shimmery IRL.....

 Next, I used foil with dies.


This old forgotten cardstock is matched with Pumpkin Pie and Saffron SU cardstock. I stamped the image Pumpkin Blossoms using Black Nuvo Hybrid ink. I used a Gina Marie Die, it was cut with 2" double sided adhesive applied to the cardstock.  The foil adheres to the tape- just burnish it with a bone folder or the edge of a ruler....  I also cut the sentiment BG and added adhesive- added the silver as above.  I used a Memory Box stitched rectangle- repositioned it and cut again to make it smaller.....
  The image was colored with Copics. I so love this sweet image!!!

And, a sampling of a die cut with double sided tape and a die (Lawn Fawn).


The image Hello Pumpkin was stamped in Black Nuvo Hybrid ink. It is colored with Copics,  I cut it out using Gina Marie dies. The Lawn Fawn Hello die was cut out with double sided adhesive on the cardstock.  The foil was burnished over the adhesive.
  Did you also notice the center strip I added under the image?  It is a strip of 1/4" sticky tape- with gold foil burnished over it. Fun accent, huh?  Nice way to add bling to your card and still let the image be center stage!

All three of these cards are great! The first card is really nice with the barnyard wall background. I love the silver foiled frame on the second card. The adorable owl stamp is so cute, I have never seen it. Yes I love the foiled sticky tape. It really adds to the card!
