Trying Foil On Sticky Embossing Powder (New Craft Stash #10)

Hello! I am featuring the Simon Says Stamp Sending Smiles Word And Shadow Wafer Dies. My last New Craft Stash also features a SSS die. Check it out when you get the chance.

I wanted to use foil on this card so I am giving Wow! Snowy White Fab Foil another try. I have not had success using this foil so I am giving it another try.

I stamped the SSS Cling Rubber Stamp Center Cut Heart Background on a dark pink cardstock using Versamark ink. I poured Ranger Sticky embossing powder to the stamped panel then heat set it. I placed the white foil, shiny side up, on top of the stamped panel. After this has cooled down, I rubbed my fingers on the area to transfer the foil to the sticky embossing powder. The impression is not as crisp as an embossed powder look. But if you are looking for an ironed off embossed powder look, this should be okay. 

I inked the panel with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Tattered Rose using a blender blush. 

For the sentiment, I die cut several of the 'sending smile' sentiments die on my reject foiled panels. One of the die cut sentiments was perfectly foiled so I placed that on the top and adhered the rest to its back to create some dimension. 

I die cut the shadow on a pink vellum and adhered this to the back of the stacked sentiment. I adhered this to the panel.

I die cut a smiley face from the foiled scraps using Lawn Fawn Selfie Frames die set. I die cut these about three times and adhered it on top of each other as well for the stacked look. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
