Foil Stamping and New Inks + Giveaway!

Hello!

Just wanted to pop in to let you know about a few fun things that are happening. And do a BIG giveaway!

FOIL STAMPING VIDEO

I am a guest today over on the Ellen Hutson blog HERE… showing more examples of adding foil to stamped images. (You can see my original video HERE.) I just adore these flower and “hello” sentiment stamps from Julie Ebersole. They look great with the DecoFoil!

To see the video, head on over to Ellen Hutson.

GIVEWAY

Ellen said that I could give away some of the products I used in the video! This is an awesome prize pack – a laminator, stamp set, adhesive and 3 packs of foil! For your chance, leave a comment here by 11:59pmEST on 5/19/15  telling me a bit of good news in your life. (The winner’s name will be randomly selected and posted on my “Winners page” after the giveaway closes. International folks are eligible, too!)

Check out this giveaway!

Good luck!

NEW ALTENEW INKS

My friends over at Altenew are releasing a new line of inks and are celebrating with a blog hop. The hop starts HERE at 9:00amEST today (5/15/15)… so be sure to check it out.

I am really excited to play with their new ink line… which are formulated to be perfect for stamp layering techniques. I wanted to do a video for you today showing how to use them… but I am honestly having trouble keeping up with it all at the moment! (Being a momma comes first here.) But I promise to show them to you in the future and get you some ink swatch downloads. 🙂 In the meantime, you can see the new inks HERE.

See you soon. Have a fabulous weekend. Audrey has prom this weekend and we are celebrating Lila’s 3rd birthday – can’t wait!

  1. Thanks for the gorgeous laminating technique we can use with so many of our current supplies, and thanks to Ellen for the fabulous giveaway! I’m receiving my first social security check this week, great news for my crafting pocketbook! 😀

  2. I will be starting my seasonal job this week booking people to go on Bear viewing trips in Alaska!

  3. Love all your techniques Jennifer…I’m learning so much. Heading to Nashville in a few days to visit my daughter. Can’t wait to hug her!

  4. I love this new trend toward foiling. It’s a great way to add depth and substance to any piece you make and tons of possibilities.
    Thanks for the great tutorial and the chance to win!

  5. Hi Jennifer! I watched this video over at Ellen Hutson. I’m so excited that Julie E. is designing. I recently ordered one of her older dies (stag), with my Mday funds and took advantage of that 20% off coupon. 😉 You, know i’m going to have to get some foil…LOL Mike took me shopping yesterday for a late Mday gift and I went crazy at Michael’s and Hobby Lobby, got some AI stamps that are a hoot, the TH Fresh Brewed die (which is going to be so versatile and Mike loves Starbucks!), a couple of newer Sizzix thinlits dies (BeYouTiful & You Are My Happy) and some clearance stamps that I couldn’t pass on by Recollections (a great Varsity alpha set, Lg. Chevron background and Creative Caos with Large sentiments). Much needed white card stock for bases, since I made a ton of greeting cards for Mday gifties. But not a penny left for foil. My die-0-holism and stamp-0-holism just takes over! But soon, I will get foil soon, so I can play. Laminators probaby don’t come with carrier sheets, but the Laminating packages do, the letter sized ones do anyway. I actually talked Staples, out of a carrier folder one day and they let me purchase it seperate. Mom supplies me with large laminating sheets, so I didn’t have the carrier. Have a Great One.

  6. Oh my word I love this giveaway! I have been dreaming about trying this foil technique!

    My most recent good news is a personal goal… I hit my 30 week mark in my pregnancy, praise God! I am pregnant with triplets, a boy & identical girls, so every little milestone is a huge praise around here!

  7. Thanks for sharing all the great tips and ideas. I am ready to give foiling a try. My good news: just spent a week with my youngest grandchild and my mom and celebrating safe travel both ways! It was quite interesting to share time and projects with a 5 year old and a 90 year old! We make applique t-shirt dresses with a scrap of tropical fish print fabric, then made matching bracelets with pony beads and fabric scraps. Three generations of crafty fun.

  8. My good news is that thanks to my husband I am now the proud owner of a bicycle (I never really had one until 2 years ago when my husband got me my first bicycle as a present, I used it 3 times and then someone broke into our garage and stole it!!). Thank you for a chance to win!!

  9. Thanks for the giveaway!
    I’ve been job hunting and praying for it, and I just received a seasonal job offer.

  11. Wow! I have been thinking about a laminator and foil, but I haven’t found the funds. Would love to win. I have watched all the foil videos and it looks fantastic. I want to try it for a Christmas card for this winter.

  12. My sister in law just had a little girl! Nothing happier then the addition of a new baby to the family : )

  13. My great new is that my foot surgery was successful and if I am patient and careful for the next features months, while I heal, I should be walking better than ever. Yippee!

  14. My good news is, that we booked our dream vacation for Thanksgiving : caribbean island hopping. I’m so excited about that.

  15. My good news… My daughter recently got a job offer from a tv station six months before graduation. She’ll be part time until Jan, when she will receive her full time contract We are so proud of her!

  16. I love what you do with foil, it makes me want to try it too. My bit of good news is my mum is in remission and away on a small holiday for the first time in 2 years, I’m very happy for her.

  23. Love the foiled cards. I don’t know which I like best! I’ve noticed that the foiled cards are on white card stock. Can you put like silver or gold on black or red card stock? Just wondering. I have all the stuff, now to get up the nerve to do it!

  24. Oh I forgot to put my good news…duh! I started watercoloring a little while ago and a guy doing work at my house saw a butterfly and asked if he could buy it! Hooray, that makes me so happy!

  25. In just under two weeks now I’ll be going on a crafty weekend with some friends! That has to be good news.

    Blessings

  31. Wow I love the foil! Oh to win this would be so nice! My good news is that after 2 horrific days of watching my 7 year old daughter throwing up and feeling absolutely miserable with a fever of 103 she is FINALLY back to good health. Nothing beats a healthy body and an eagerness to craft! I love my little girl and our crafty adventures. 😀

  32. Omg! I’m so excited to try this Tech out! I have a older laminating machine and really want to try this! What’s even more exciting is the prize pack that someone gets!
    Awesomely awesome I tell ya!
    Thanks again for sharing !

  33. Jennifer, after seeing your videos on Foil techniques, my excitement led to my husband purchasing an inexpensive laser printer for me! It was a ridiculously great sale at Office Depot. Anyway, I can’t wait to try laser images I design myself!
    I have to have a heart cath done this week, so it will probably be next week before I dive in, but it’s something to look forward to.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Gail

  34. Love your foiled card and thanks for the chnce to win a great prize package! I’m happy to be visiting my family in TX and the good news is that I am getting to attend lots of art and theater and choir events for my GRANDS end of the school year events!
