Foil Frenzy Stamp-a-Stack

Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Foil Frenzy Stamp-a-Stack

Every month I like to come up with a super simple design that I can use to make a stack of quick and easy cards. I thought the Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP would be perfect to use for this months’ stack as the super shiny patterns can do most of the hard work and I’ll only have to add a few extra touches to finish them off 🙂

I like to be economical with my supplies, especially the specialty papers and today’s cards use a piece that’s only 2″ wide, this means you can make 12 cards from one 12″ x 12″ sheet with just a few slivers of waste 🙂

I love the strong contrast between this DSP and the Basic Black base and sentiment, it really lets the foil designs shine and makes my simple design look a little more sophisticated but keeps them still guy and teen friendly.

The foil strips were adhered to a 3″ wide layer of coordinating cardstock stamped tone-on-tone with the balloons from the coordinating Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. I like the how the “hoo” and the “ray” ended up on either side of the foiled piece, your eye tends to read the whole word and it makes sense – I’d like to say it was on purpose, but no, just a happy accident 😉

Happy Birthday was die cut using the Happy Birthday Thinlits, layered onto a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle and then popped up on the foiled card front. The stitching adds another bit of texture to a very simple card and this solid layer makes the Basic Black sentiment the focal point.

The insides of my cards are finished off quite simply with a couple of cardstock layers and a little more stamping from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. I really like the assortment of sentiments in this set, there’s inside and outside ones and a nice mix of fonts as well as some fun images I haven’t had a chance to play with yet. I can see this one getting a lot of love over the coming year 🙂

I hope you liked this month’s Stamp-a-Stack, this is a great layout to get the most from your Designer Series Paper and if Foil Frenzy isn’t your cup of tea it will work with any papers in the catalogue. The best part is that you’ll be able to coordinate whichever paper pack you choose perfectly with cardstock, stamps and ink – Stampin’ Up! takes  care of that, that’s one of my favourite things about them 🙂
