ID: MC July 17 - Easel Embossed FFoil - ECD Faith - When You Get To The End
size: 5"w x 7"h (standing)

Created: July 15, 2017

I was in a mood to create something with foil... and then I wanted to use one of newest acquisitions - this Stampendous Hummingbird stamp set.

I'm using an A Way With Words die "Faith" from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

And I'm using a quote stamp from Quietfire Design

("When You Get To The End...");


Scored and folded my olive green cardstock to create the easel. Cut another piece same size as front and adhered. 

Adhered a piece of cheap aluminum foil to a piece of 110# white cardstock using Golden's Soft Gel Medium and applying it with a credit card to a smooth thin layer. Set aside to dry overnight, then ran through my embossing machine using another new acquisition Cuttlebug's Anna Griffin "Pirouette" embossing folder. Applied various colors of Distress acrylic dabbers ("Broken China", "Shabby Shutters", "Twisted Citron", "Antique Bronze" and "Antique Linen"). Semi dried naturally then wiped the excess paint off the high points. Used a sanding block to remove more paint. Hit the high points with Versafine Black Onyx pad, semi dried and again lightly sanded off the high points.

Die cut the word "Faith" from a deep green cardstock and a silver patterned wrapping paper (Paper Roots). Adhered both together slightly off set, then onto the card front.

Stamped half the sentiment and then the other haf of the sentiment of two pieces of white cardstock. Die cut using Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Rectangles" die set. Sponged so "Olive Green" an "Twisted Citron" around the edges.

Adhered a piece of green variegate/silver Sari ribbon and then the top part of the stamped quote.

Created and electronically cut file of my stamped images and cut from white cardstock. Inked the stamps with Distress pads, misted with water and stamped on the cut pieces. Used a water brush the add and move color. Allowed to dry. Adhered the large hummingbird to the front using 3D foam tape.  

On the floor: Adhered the bottom of the quote to a piece of the green cardstock and trimmed down to 1/16 using my layering rulers. Adhered to floor with 3D foam tape to act as my stopper.

Adhered the various stamped elements.

A final touch, added mini black rhinestones to the eyes of both birds.
