Blogging with Friends - What's new, What's Cool!

Welcome to the Blogging Friends Blog Hop.  This month's theme is "What's new, What's cool!" so I'm sharing a card featuring the Expressions in Ink Product Suite from the new Annual Catalogue.  This is my favourite suite of products from the new catalogue.  

For my card, I created a mask from the dies and used it to add some gorgeous "bling" with Gilded Leafing Embellishment!  What do you think?

  1. Cut Basic Black cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Gold Foil Sheet 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Cut Designer Series Paper 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
  4. Cut out die from Basic White card stock.
  5. Use as a mask on the Designer Series Paper to sponge on Versamark all over pattern using a Sponge Dauber.
  6. Sprinkle with Heat and Stick Powder and heat to melt.
  7. Apply Gilded Leafing Embellishment over Designer Series Paper and remove excess with a sponge.
  8. Adhere to Gold Foil Sheet piece using Stampin' Seal.
  9. Adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
  10. Cut Basic White cardstock 1" x 4 1/4"
  11. Stamp sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  12. Cut Basic Black cardstock 1 1/4" x 4 1/4"
  13. Adhere sentiment piece to Basic Black card stock piece using Stampin' Seal.
  14. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  15. Adhere Ephemera pieces behind sentiment piece using Glue Dots.
  16. Add sequins
