Foiled Leaves 2 Ways

Good morning! Well...I delayed too long, and the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for October - Sketched Flowers appears to have officially sold out! Many of the kit elements are still available separately though. The large stamp set in the kit - Sketched Flowers, alcohol ink, Yupo paper and Alcohol Lift ink are all still available - the pre-printed Gina K cards and fun pack of fall foils I didn't see available separately.

If you were lucky enough to get your hands on one of the kits, then today's cards feature some of the gorgeous pre-printed toner cards and foils from Gina K included in the kit, as well as sentiments from the Sketched Flowers stamp set that I love! 

These cards were the result of having messy hands from playing with alcohol inks, and not taking time to clean them off before picking up a preprinted card. Yep, you guessed it - ruined it with inky fingerprint smudges! Ack! So...I foiled the leaves (that managed to stay clean!), and fussy cut them out to use them in a different way! I mounted them with foam on a plain white cardbase and simply stamped the sentiment underneath.

Then, I ran the negatives through my machine using Toner Paper, and fussy cut those out to use on a card as well!

Sometimes mistakes lead to something entirely unexpected...I wouldn't have done this otherwise, and even though these are incredibly simple, they ended up being some of my favorite cards from the kit!
