Foiled Digital Stamps using a Laser Printer
- Two Cards, Three Different Techniques -

I recently got a laser printer, a wonderful surprise courtesy of my husband who knows how much I love to foil. So yes, I've been foiling away my digital stamps on cards and today I'm sharing 3 different ways to foil your cards using Graciellie Design digital stamps from our Etsy shop!

First, let me show you how I worked with a foil resist technique to watercolor this stunning flower! First I printed the flower using my laser printer on regular white cardstock and then ran it through my Minc machine on level 3 layering it with a gold Decofoil transfer sheet. Once the image was foiled (which is quite easy following these steps), I used a waterbrush and Distress inks to watercolor my flower and because the foil resists the color applied you end up with a stunning result as shown below.

I colored the flowers with Spectrum Noir markers and lightly mist them with Sheer Shimmer. I fussy cut both images and adhered them with foam tape on a panel colored with ink sprays and embellished with patterned paper strips. I stenciled my second card with Dreamweaver Pearlescent Embossing Paste and also finished it with a few foiled details, using Thermoweb Decofoil in Magenta.

Fresh & Fruity with Sunny Studio Stamps
- Fun Summer Card Ideas -

Summer crafts can be so fun, especially with the sweet images from Sunny Studio Stamps. Today I'm sharing 3 cards I created with stamps from the set Fresh & Fruity... It's so fun and versatile! My favorite thing about these stamps is all the options you get so you can add little faces and other details to your images.





I created patterned backgrounds with the fun fruit images which I heat embossed in glitter gold and white. I went for an ombre look on 2 cards and I decided to watercolor the strawberries on my first card with distress inks. I also foiled the edges on my second card and discover the Thermoweb's Champagne transfer foil matches perfectly the tone of gold on Clearsnap's Glitter Gold embossing powder.


Sunny Studio Stamps has a brand new release and I already picked my favorites! They also have fun, versatile dies that go along perfect with their sweet stamps. Make sure you head to their blog (that will be featuring my cards today) and shop to check out the…
