It’s the second Sunday of July and it’s time to hop with Sara Levin’s Stamping Sunday Blog Hop.
This week we are highlighting “Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate” … this is a Stampin’ Up! product and is Acetate sheets printed with Gold Foil on one side, which looks silver on the other side.
The gorgeous gold foil patterns add a luxurious touch to any project. I have used it as a layer and the most difficult thing was to choose which colour to layer it over. So I didn’t stop at one!
Night of Navy + Gold Polka Dots
A classic combination, and the perfect background for the brilliant white daisies. The Daisy Punch will be available for purchase soon … you can see what it has been so popular! The jar is from Jar of Love stamp set, stamped on watercolour paper, coloured and die cut with the co-ordinating framelit. I diecut the same jar out of regular clear window sheet and layered over the top.
Dapper Denim + Gold Mosaic Pattern
To adhere the acetate to the card front without glue show through, adhere the jar and flowers to the front of the acetate first. Then apply a dry adhesive such as Fast Fuse or Tear and Tape to the back side of the acetate behind the front elements and adhere to the card front.
Pool Party + Silver Scallop Pattern
And lastly, I flipped the scalloped pattern acetate to use the silver side over Pool Party cardstock. This is my favourite. Which is yours?
Memory Making using Designer Acetate
I love the printed Acetate Overlays that come in the Memories and More packs for memory keeping. With the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate, you can create your own overlays for memory keeping.
This is my gorgeous granddaughter, blowing bubbles on a sunny Autumn afternoon.
I created a double 6″ x 8″ layout for these photos. For the full page, I created a frame using the largest Layering Squares framelit, cutting twice to form a rectangular opening and layered over Pink Pirouette cardstock. I love the way the dots cover the edges of the photo without actually covering any of the image.
The letters are die cut from one of the watercolour wash pieces of Designer Series Paper in the Naturally Eclectic paper pack, and then again from the scallop pattern Designer Acetate. To adhere the acetate to the letters, I sponged Multipurpose Liquid Glue onto the front side of the Designer Series Paper letters and then applied the acetate die cut letters.
For the second page, I have used strips of the gold spotted acetate as accents, continuing the theme of having some of the dots extending over the photographs. White Perfect Accents with the backing removed make perfect extra bubbles. I have adhered them with Mini Glue Dots.
