February Sketch and Dare Challenge for Die-namites

Hi everyone, Where did January go?  Yep it is now mid February and time to start thinking about Valentine's Day. I feel like Christmas just ended!

Today I would like to remind everyone about the Sketch & Dare Challenge at Die-namites Dies.

 The dare this month is to use a heart!


 I used the Summer Branch and Heart Doily Dies from Die-namites for my card today:

 For today's card,  I also wanted to highlight a few yummies
recently released  by IndigoBlu
IndigoBlu FlitterGlu Kit in Box
A5 Tuff Storage Box
FlitterGlu (50ml with Easy clean nozzle)Phat Foam
Scoochy sponge
Palette Knife
1x Winter Dawn
Instruction Sheet
All you need to get started, in a box.
This kit includes everything you need to start producing fantastic foil effects. Simply choose your stamp and have some fun creating great cards and decorations.

I chose the new Splattered Heart Stamp that was designed by my good friend Limor Webber.  I love the grungy splatter effect and thought it would make a great accent with the foiling.
Together these products helped produce the drama needed for this card.  I love how the delicate Summer Branch Die easily takes the foiling after it has been die-cut.  By combining the splatters from the stamp with the Flitter foil, I was able to give my card the look of Fireworks!
Here is a process video showing how I made this card:

I love how easily I was able to add the flakes to my delicate die-cut.   Foiling is so HOT right now, so this system makes it super simple to create dramatic cards, that remain flat enough to mail! 

Thanks for stopping in today,
