Foiled Mosaic Background

Hi Everybody,

I was playing with Deco Foil Transfer Gel and a Tim Holtz Mosaic Stencil and when I foiled it with the Deco Foil Lapis Watercolor Foil, I was blown away with how beautiful it was. I wanted to make a card with it but wasn't quite sure how I would add it to other stamps, card stock, etc.  

The first thing that I put with it was Paper Temptress card stock called Gold Pearl Linen.  This card stock is so pretty and it's a great weight too.  It's a light gold, if that makes sense, not real yellow in color.  I used ribbon from Paper Temptress as well called 5/8" Opulance Ribbon in Gold.  I loved this ribbon with the other two elements for the card.  It's a sheer, classy ribbon that is easy to work with. 

Next, I cut out the magnolia flower from the Magnolia Dreams Stamp Set by Graciellie Design with my Scan N Cut and foiled with Deco Foil Rose Gold Foil.  I decided not to color the flower this time because I didn't want to take away from the mosaic foiled background.  I just added some Martha Stewart Clear Microbeads in the center of the flower.  You just put glue down where you want them and sprinkle them on glue, easy as that.  Just make sure you are doing it in something like a shoe box top because they will go all over the place.  

I added a sentiment from a stamp set called, Good Thoughts from Graciellie Design.  I also foiled the sentiment with the Deco Foil Rose Gold Foil.  I really like this color foil because it's not a bright yellow gold.  Sometimes you want gold but not so yellow and this is it.  After I printed it, I cut a ribbon banner from white card stock. I finished it with a few dew drops from The Ton.  I love these as a change from sequins and they hold really well.  If you want embellishment but not shiny bling like sequins, dew drops are your answer. 

(sentiment is from this beautiful stamp set)

I want to comment on this magnolia flower in the set.  This flower is perfect because the shading is already there so it looks good just foiled or if you want to color it there is no need to guess where the shading is so you can quickly color up some and use on cards. 

This stamp set is part of a set that includes the stamp set, patterned paper, matching card stock, SVG's.  Everything coordinates so well together.  There is currently an August Promotion at Graciellie Design if you buy the entire Magnolia Dreams set, you will get a free gift. You can buy individually as well. 

There will be a blog hop on the 15th of this month so I hope you'll join us to win some prizes for commenting.  There will be lots of inspiration from the Design Team.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Thank you so much ladies! YES you do need a minc lol. I got mine on Amazon for around $45. I had a laminator but I think it didn't get hot enough so I bought the minc and I haven't had any issues. If there is something in particular you would like for me to do a video on, just let me know. :)
