CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Fabulous Foil

0 6 Comments

Welcome to the CTMH Technique blog hop! You should have arrived from Michelle’s blog, if not, that’s ok, it’s a big circle, so you will get back to her!

Today we are focusing on our new Foil papers! Have you seen them? They are GREAT!! Our foil paper is 10 lb cover weight, so it’s nice and sturdy. Hopefully you will hop through the blog hop and get some great fun new ideas to use this fabulous new product!

Now, I know that summer is still here, and that fall is just around the corner, but I just HAD to share this with you. In the new ‘little book’ (i.e. Holiday Expressions), you will find 2 different Christmas papers, a cut above card kit (also Christmas) and a Tag set too! (As well as two other paper packs that aren’t Christmas!) Well, I just had to show you something SUPER fun that you can do with this tag set!

I know, I know, BUT, you can totally use this idea and make a Celebrations banner, or Happy New Year, or Happy Birthday, or Happy Anniversary! The options are almost endless, really!!

To get to the end result, I added a few things to the tag set. The Black Cardstock helps the shimmer of the gold and silver pop against the white. The Gold and Silver Foil papers were added (of course), and the Basics Ribbon Pack. I used the Block Alphabet Thin Cuts to cut the letters from the foil papers. The tags (both gold and silver), the glitter bows, and the white circles are all included in the tags kits, along with some white twine, which I did not use in this project.

Now, I know my lighting isn’t the best, but just LOOK at all that shine!! I used the gold foil paper for the letters on the tags that had the gold embossing on them, and used the silver foil paper for the circle under the gold letters. For instance, this M from Merry Christmas:

This fun banner was super simple to put together! I know you will want to make something similar! I can’t wait to see what YOU do!

Next up is Sarah, so hop on over to her blog, and see what fun things she has made for you!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope to see you again soon!
