Blended Aluminum

Stampin' Up!, Flower Pot, Flower Patch

My idea for one of our techniques this week was to use Stampin’ Up! foil sheets with Blendabilities.  It was a great idea – emboss the foil sheet, then highlight areas with blendabilities and use it as a frame on a card.

And then I checked my stock of foil sheets.  Oops.  Depleted.  Totally.  Fortunately, I have a lot of aluminum foil in the kitchen.  I folded a piece several times to make a thick layer (ok, I have aluminum foil, but it’s cheap aluminum foil, not the good, heavy kind for grilling) and embossed and colored on it.  It worked ok, but the foil sheets are much, much better.

One nice thing about embossing the aluminum foil is that even if it’s all wrinkled and ugly, it straightens out in the Big Shot.  (And don’t forget the awesome Big Shot promotion going on in August!  Details here.)  I used the new Fun Frames folders with Pumpkin Pie blendabilities.

And now, see if you can figure out a theme here – other products include the Flower Patch stamp set, Flower Fair framelits, Flower Frenzy Bigz die and Flower Pot designer series paper.  And it wasn’t even intentional.  Good grief.  I think it’s because I can’t grow anything, so I gravitate to floral images and paper.

The Blendabilities are so much fun, and you can add color to anything.  Our other technique was coloring over heat embossed images, but that’s for another day.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!
