Foil Play DT challenge: foiled cards by Pyjama Princess

Pyjama Princess from the Craft Telly forum has produced these gorgeous foiled cards for the Foil Play design team challenge.

The Green Disco Diva card was made using Penny Black Stamp ‘Ginger’, coloured in using Marvy Le Plume II pens and a water brush. The image was matted onto shiny green paper then green card. Magic Motifs ‘Disco Diva’ words were foiled using metallic effect green rub on foil. The card was finished with silver star peel offs, coloured green.

The Oriental Card was made using paper from the Black and White Colossal Paper Pack by PaperMania. Elements of the design were highlighted using red metallic foil and Sakura Quickie glue pen. The geisha image was taken from Card+ Creations Oriental CD and printed in gray scale, then mounted on red shiny paper.
The multi coloured swirls card was made using Penny Black Stamp ‘Scrolling Along!’ stamped in 4 corners of card. Colour was added in with metallic foils and Sakura Quickie glue pen – flowers in copper, hearts in pink, leaves in green and dots in silver. The design was then matted onto green pearlescent paper.

The modern Christmas tree card was made using a rubber stamp from Dimension Fourth. Image coloured in using metallic rub on foils and Sakura Quickie glue pen (red, copper, purple and blue foil for baubles, green for tree and silver for base. Edge of white card coloured using Silver Pen touch calligrapher pen.

The flower peel off card was made using pink flower peel off stickers. The peel offs were stuck onto white paper and coloured with metallic rub on foils and Sakura Quickie glue pen. Copper for centre of flowers, silver for petals and green for leaves. The peel offs were then cut out and mounted onto pink background paper (free from a magazine) and the card finished with pink sparkly straight line peel offs.

The snowflake card was made using 3 different sized snowflake stamps (bought from Alan and Barry – their own design). Stamped in Prussian Blue Fluid Chalk Inkpad from Colorbox and then coloured using metallic blue and silver rub on foils and Sakura Quickie glue pen. The snowflakes were then cut out and then attached to white handmade paper.

Flowers in vases card - Pyjama Princess spread the glue in blocks onto paper, then stuck the foils on in coloured blocks referring to the peel offs for what colour to apply where. When dry she laid the peel offs over the block of colours and then cut them out. The backing paper was free from a magazine and she highlighted the ‘swirls’ with silver foil. The paper lace down the middle of the card is a craft lace border by Paper Craft 4 You.

Thank you, Pyjama Princess for producing these beautiful cards!

Well done, PP, the cards are absolutely gorgeous. Hard to pick a favourite but I do love the Oriental one. I have both that paper pad and a whole rainbow of foils from Foilplay, so I'm thinking I'm going to be producing a homage to your work in the near future! Dips
