Psst....Over here! Sneak Peek!

Hello there!  Tonight I am SOOOO excited to share a SNEAK PEEK from the upcoming 2015 Annual Catalog.  Being a Stampin' Up! Demo definitely has it's perks!  As a demo were able to preorder select products from the upcoming annual catalog on May 5th.  Since I'm worse than a kid waiting for Santa to arrive- I had my preorder overnighted!  What can I say?  Patience has never been my strong suit!

For my sneak peek- I've chosen to use the brand new "You've Got This" stamp set paired with my new favorite In-Color Mint Macron.  This color is beautiful!  

You can't really tell from the picture above- but I've used a new technique! it's probably not a new technique but it's new to me!  I have always been a huge fan of images with foil.  Since I don't own a laser printer making my own images with foil was pretty much a no go.  Until......I found a tutorial on Pinterest!  Instead of using a laser printer to create my image- I stamped the background stamp from the You've Got This stamp set in Versamark ink onto Whisper White card stock.  I then applied a tiny bit of laser toner....patted it onto the image and brushed away the excess.  Next I placed a piece of gold foil onto the image and sent it through the laminator.  Then VIOLA!  A beautiful gold foil background!

I'm gonna be honest here and tell you that if you plan on trying this technique- you must and I repeat MUST use the Embossing Buddy and go over your card stock several times before stamping the image.  Without this step- the toner literally sticks to every possible space on the card stock thus making it next to impossible to remove all the excess toner.  

Well that's it for tonight!  I hope you've enjoyed my beautiful card!  Be sure to keep checking back!  I have lots of new products to share with you!  Looking to place an order?  Click the SHOP WITH ME button on the right side bar to visit my store!
