The Count Down Continues with Springtime Foils

Hello and Happy Tuesday! It's actually beginning to look like Spring is going to make an appearance here in CNY! Well, it's about time that's for sure. Anyway, along with Spring coming in, Sale-a-bration is on it's way out! Really, in all seriousness, Sale-a-bration ends Saturday, so if there is anything in that brochure that is on your wishlist's, you need to make your move now. Because, once Sale-a-bration is over, it's gone, never to be seen again (unless you like shopping with unscrupulous sellers on Ebay paying a mint for something you could have gotten for FREE - yeah, I didn't think so)
Anyhoo, today's card focuses on one of my FAVORITE Sale-a-bration offerings, the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper. This stuff is just gorgeous and it's a dream to work with. It's smooth, but the foiling is textured. It's just gorgeous. I spent the other night just coloring an entire sheet of this paper while sitting and watching television with my husband and the next day, I cut it down to 4" x 5.25"and created my card. For the layout, I used the sketch challenge over on my Facebook page.
We had a lot of fun with this sketch over there. (Stop over and take a look at all the other fun samples using the sketch...we have some pretty talented folks on my page). To color the paper, I used my Stampin' Blends. These are the perfect markers for this task because the paper is glossy and a bit on the "non-porous side, the alcohol based ink in the Blends allows for good coverage and will actually dry on this paper where as other markers would remain wet and wipe off when you touched the ink. Once I adhered the colored DSP to the card front of Rich Razzleberry cut 5.5" x 8.5"; scored and folded at 4.25", I cut a square from a piece of Bronze Foil paper measuring 2.25" square, cut on the diagonal to create the triangles and ran both pieces through the Petal Pair embossing folder to add texture to them and adhered them to opposing corners of the card front. I then stamped the sentiment from Hold on to Hope stamp set in Rich Razzleberry ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 2" x 3.25"and added the corner design from the same stamp set and adhered the panel onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry that measures 2.25" x 3.5". I popped this piece up on Dimensionals and added it to the center of the card. It was really a simple card to create but it really packs a WOW and this paper really can stand alone without the coloring, I just decided to sit and relax one evening and color....yes, I find coloring relaxing! I hope you enjoyed today's card and it encourages you to do a little coloring. And remember, if you would love to get your hands on this GORGEOUS paper, it's FREE with a $50 purchase and after Saturday, it will be gone forever. Sad, I know, but true so don't wait!
