A new Monday equals a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's: Thank you! Maybe you need to make a Thank you card or gift tag, or maybe you're thankful for something. As long as it's about thanks you're good to go to join us!
I'm joining in the foil trend and I love it. I do not have the beautiful Minc machine, but fortunately there are other methods for using foil. I've been experimenting with different techniques and the background of this tag I made with a stamp, clear embossing powder and a laminator. The Minc is actually a laminator, which has the ability to adjust temperature and is also hotter than a regular laminator (in most cases, there are lots of different laminators out there). My laminator has no temperature control and just isn't hot enough for some techniques. Therefore, it works less "good", but I actually like the results in most cases better because of the lack of heat. I'm more of the distressed look, than the clean crisp look type of girl.
After the foil, I applied some color to the background. I like the color combination of blue with pink, I think it's beautiful. I made a layered half doily. The doily in the back is from waxpaper, which I use in some dies so that the die cut is easier to remove from the die. The upper white flower is from Prima. It is actually a trim. The "thanks" is an exclusive die from Simon Says Stamp, I cut it out of cork and outlined it with a black marker.
