Foiled again!

Hello and Happy Sunday from Jean.

I love shiny things!   Glitter, embossing, metallics and FOILING!

Speaking of Shiny things, we have a bright shiny winner this week!  But you have to read on....

I decided to use foil on some of the GSL Chip pieces for a dramatic effect.

Here are two ways to apply foil, 
first with any size double side tape

Second, with a product like Duo which leaves a tacky residue when dry

Pretty spectacular, right?  

I added stamping with Delicata Silver Ink  plus Neon Pink Ink and a Diamond stamp, then wrote some letters with my white Uniball pen on black layering swatches, ready for a card or use as a gift tag.   


PLEASE send your mailing address to and we will mail it off to you!  Enjoy and share your finished projects on our Facebook page...


  1. absolutely love the way the gold foil looks on the chipboard diecut! so elegant luxe - going to try using Duo myself!

  2. ack! I'm so excited, thank you! I'll send my email ASAP. loving this genius foil piece by the way! xo

  3. Is the foil solid and you added color? Love the finish! Marlene

    1. Thsi foil is named oil slick, as it is multi colors swirled like oil on water.

  4. Oh my gosh, I love that foiled dragonfly. How perfect!!

  5. I so don't play with my foil enough........I just love how it looks on your dragonfly Jean......beautifully done! xx

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
