Foiled Father’s Day card


Hi bloggies!

I had some fun recently trying out some foiling with my laminator. I only bought a cheap laminator from Office works and was pleasantly surprised at how well it works.


I have used the Stampin’ up! “Pattern Party Decorative Masks” – brick stencil with some Thermo Web Deco Foil Gel and randomly spread the gel over the stencil without taking it right to the edges to give an uneven brickwork look: This gel is like an adhesive for the foil and when it is put through the laminator the heat sets the foil onto the card. Magic! It is such a striking effect!

Love, love this stinkin’ cute dragon stamp from Whimsy Stamps called Bart Goes Golfing.  It was perfect for a Fathers Day card for my hubby’s Dad who loves to play golf. I had lots of fun creating this card and was thrilled with the end result.

Just wanted to share a little family excitement …. Sandy has been playing 1st grade soccer ⚽️ (ooops … “football”) for the Illawarra Premier League for the last two years and his team just scraped into the finals this year in 5th place. They have since played 3 elimination finals against the 4th, 2nd & 3rd placed teams and won! So … they are into the Grand Final on Sunday against all odds! 😀 They are completely the underdogs … but anything can happen. It certainly is a bit of a big deal with a grand final launch dinner last night with local media and a team briefing & lunch on Sunday at the sponsor club and even a team bus to take them to the game! Win or lose … there will also be a family & friends & team dinner at the club on Sunday night. We are excited for Sandy (no. 11) … the youngest on the team … and it is a thrill to see him enjoying his football so much! ⚫️ #weare black ⚪️ #wearewhite #PKFC  … Port Kembla FC
