Couture Creations DT Reveal | Seaside & Me Card with Custom Coloured Hot Foiling

Hi everyone and welcome to my post today which is a Card I have created with the Seaside & Me collection and Custom Coloured Hot Foiling.  

I have used a 5″x7″ Card as the base onto which I have layered scrap papers and Ephemera pieces that I have left from several other Seaside & Me projects.  

The feature of this card is the Hot Foiled Chipboard Sentiment that is featured in the video below.  I have layered Vintage Gold Matte and Transparent Blue Hot Foils on the Chipboard Sentiment to get a custom Aqua colour to match the ribbon on the card.  NOTE: The top layer must be transparent for this technique to work!

I have used a layered foiling technique on the Starfish that I will share in a future post and video.

I have distressed all of the layers on the card, except the starfish and the Chipboard Sentiment.  I have also used Foam Tape between many of the layers to get a more dimensional finish to the card.

We would love to see what Custom Coloured Foiling you come up with…..

  • CO725816 Cream 5″x7″ Card & Envelope Set

Couture Creations DT Reveal | Seaside & Me Inchie Card with Hot Foiling

Hi everyone and welcome to my post today which is an Inchie Card I have created with the Seaside & Me collection and Hot Foiling.  I especially love my card today as I have used a background Hot Foil Stamp to create the feature squares on my card.  

The dimensions of the card layers are:

  • Base – Square Card Base from CO724846 Cream Square Card & Envelope Set
  • Layer 1 – 5 1/8″ square of Seaside & Me Patterned Paper #5
  • Layer 2 – 5″ square of Seaside & Me Patterned Paper #2
  • Inchie Base – 1 3/8″ squares of Seaside & Me Patterned Paper #12
  • Inchie Layer 1 – 1 1/8″ squares of Seaside & Me Patterned Paper #5 raised on foam tape
  • Inchie Top Layer – 1″ squares of Square Card Base Hot Foiled using transparent blue in CO726218 Seaside & Me Heat Activated Foil Pack using CO726187 Seaside & Me Swirling Seas Hot Foil Stamp

I find that cutting the 1″ squares of card before foiling them helps to maintain the random nature of the Inchie backgrounds.  And I also know that I will have enough card for all nine, as sometimes the best planned piece of cardstock can be just short.

I like to apply the tape and foam to the Inchie layers and assemble them prior to adding any embellishments – so that I can audition the layout of my card as I create each element.

The crab and little shells are all fussy-cut from the papers in the CO726151 Seaside & Me 6×6 Paper Pad, as the scale is more fitting to and Inchie card than the elements on the 12×12 patterned papers.

I have used the copper foil from the CO726218 Seaside & Me Heat Activated Foil Pack with the CO724184 Seaside & Me By The Seashore Hot Foil Stamp and a spare Square Cream Card Base to create a custom foiled cardstock that I then fussy-cut the shells from.

I used and embossing tool and foam mat to shape the Crab, Shells and Starfish that I fussy-cut from papers in the 6×6 Seaside & Me Paper Pad.

I love using the CO726188 Seaside & Me Chipboard Sentiments Set, and with a little effort they can be transformed in so many ways.  This time I started by using a brown pen to colour the engraved letters on the two sentiments I intended on using.

I have then Hot Foiled them with CO725351 Silver Matte Hot Foil to disguise the grey of the Chipboard – bear with me there is a method in my madness.

And finally I have Hot Foiled the Chipboard Sentiments with the transparent blue in CO726218 Seaside & Me Heat Activated Foil Pack – which doesn’t look as nice when foiled directly over the grey Chipboard.

The results speak for themselves with a crisp brown lettering and the same beautiful blue foil as the Inchie squares.

Couture Creations products I have used:

  • CO724846 Cream Square Card & Envelope Set
  • CO726198 Seaside & Me Patterned Paper #05
  • CO726195 Seaside & Me Patterned Paper #02
  • CO726205 Seaside & Me Patterned Paper #12
  • CO726151 Seaside & Me 6×6 Paper Pad
