Guess what!!?

More gold!  AND.  Watercoloring.  My two favorite things in one place!

Ok, Let’s. Foil. All. The. Things.

So I’ve been busy, busy, busy with the brush lettering. Writing quotes and sentiments all over the place.  And making them foil-able for your home decor and card giving purposes.  Seasonal quotes on sheet music, travel, adventure and love quotes on atlas paper - for you to foil and frame or hang on a clipboard - easy to change out with the seasons.  Those come in 8.5″ x 11″.  I’ll have some photos to show you of those items next week when I bring them to Winkler on my next trip.  For today though, I can show you some versions of those items printed on two new mediums!  (I’m kind of excited about this, I hope you are too!)  Now we’re going to have available, card fronts printed on vellum and watercolor paper!  For you to make cards with some extra oomph.  Also with your new Minc!  What?  You don’t have one yet?  What are you waiting for?  Christmas?  Ok, sure, that works.  Make sure it’s at the top your list and let Lori know soon!

Here is an example of what the watercolor paper foils look like.


And the same set printed on vellum…

I love the look of the vellum layered over some pretty patterned paper.  All you need to add is a subtle touch of bling and call it a day!  As I was scripting these quotes I kept thinking of more occasions these would be suitable for…beyond the obvious graduation, bon voyage and wedding cards.  How about new baby, new job, new move cards?


There will also be some sets of card fronts with Christmas sentiments in this brush lettering style.  They’re cool too.

Here are some more done on watercolor papers from a couple different sets.  This first one is foiled with gold.  Mmmm!  And check out the matching gold Nuvo drops!


The thankful card has been foiled with Gunmetal - such a yummy color, and so sophisticated too!  (Looks better IRL).


And now for my new fave - BLACK foil!


And here’s a random one…I just wanted you to know there is also WHITE foil and it looks so stunning on dark cardstock!  Watch for those in the store as well!


Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you find something to love!

    Love all the cards, the foil really adds to the cards and you don’t have to do a lot to them !!! Love the foil on the vellum.
