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

Fabulous Foil Night of Navy

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.

Memory Keeping with Fabulous Foil

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.

Full Page Frame

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.

Fabulous Foil 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.

Perfect Accents make Perfect Bubbles

These lovely pics of Stelli were taken by my daughter, Joelle.

  • Love the foil acetate! So pretty! When you cut a jar out of clear window sheet how did you adhere it? Thanks so much!

    • Hey Lori, thanks so much. I adhered the clear acetate die cut jar with a Multipurpose Liquid Glue around the neck of the jar. It does show, but it is covered over with flowers, thread etc. Then i added a light touch of liquid glue in the base of the jar, apply with a sponge. Because i added some extra colour to the watercolouring to look like the base of the jar, the slight layer of glue that does show, just looks like the bottom of the jar. Then just to add a little bit of extra “stick”, I tied the Baker’s Twine around both the watercoloured jar and the adhered acetate jar to ensure it all stayed together. The ridged top of the jar, holds it in place nicely. xxx

    • Thanks so much Natalie. I do love my babysitting days, although she isn’t a baby any more! 🙂 xx

  • Oh how beautiful! I think my favourite one is the night of navy and gold polka dot overlay. Although truthfully it’s really hard to choose a favourite when they are all so gorgeous! They make me feel happy just looking at them! Love your work! xxx

  • Love seeing all the uses for the acetate sheets. I love how you used the letters in a different pattern— the tone on tone with the gold is beautiful.

  • I love your daisy cards! What did you use for the layered center?
    And your page layout of your darling granddaughter is stunning and sweet!!!

    • Thank you Melinda. That little extra layer in the centre of the flower is another punched out Daisy, however I then punched the middle of the daisy out with the 3/8″ circle punch. It forms a little cog shape which fits perfectly behind the stamped and punched flower centre. xxx

  • Just love the cards, I love Daisy’s. And the scrapbook pages are just stunning, just like little Stella

  • Oh WOW Cheryll. I am in LOVE with your DAISY CARDS They are gorgeous in their simplicity! Your scrap layout is just adorable too, love the bubbles and your pics are so well set off againts the fab foil xx Thoroughly gorgeous!

    • Thanks so much Kim. I love the daisy punch. Need to put it away for a while now I think! 🙂 xx

    • lol … thanks Sara! I have resisted using the Daisy Punch, but the gold dots over Night of Navy called out for white flowers, and the daisy punch was perfect. And yes, my little Bubble Queen made this layout pure enjoyment to create!! 🙂

  • Hi Cheryll, thank you for the inspiration. I love the idea for the card and the album. For my next album I will case your idea 🙂

    • Thank you Martha … the designer acetate makes it so easy to create an interesting layout! Imagine creating a whole series of pages with different coloured backgrounds, but the same designer acetate. 🙂
