Hello everyone. It is once again time for another Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie, Buffy and me. This time our challenge is called “Foiled Again”. Jackie came up with that. Isn’t that cute and clever!
I decided to use some Specialty Designer Series Paper for this challenge because usually when it is called Specialty Paper it means it has some kind of foil on it. The paper I chose is called Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper and is in the Holiday Mini Catalog. This entire group of products was in last year’s Holiday Mini Catalog and was so popular, Stampin’ Up!® decided to bring it back again this year. This group of products includes the stamp set called Christmas Gleaming, Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack and the beautiful DSP I used on my card. I have to say it is one of my favorite DSPs I have ever purchased. The colors are magnificent!
To make this card I first stamped the ornaments in Versamark Ink and embossed them with Copper Embossing Powder (which, I am sorry to say, I just discovered is retired). Then I punch them out using the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack. I also stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink and using the Copper Embossing Powder on that too. I backed a piece of the Designer Series Paper with Copper Foil Paper and the other piece with Night of Navy cardstock. I used some Dimensionals on one of the ornaments and on the sentiment to pop it up a bit.
Now, let’s go see how Buffy and Jackie were “Foiled Again”.
Susan, this is wonderful. I love a card that sparkles when you move it and this is most definitely one of those!
GORGEOUS! I love the foil sheets and that DSP, and the added embossing powder that gives it even more sparkle is beautiful! (I was really sad to see the Copper EP retire.) Lovely card, Susan!
So pretty! I love the copper foil – shame that it’s retiring.
