  2. I love how you combined so many things together to get such a rich and exciting result on all your cards!

  3. Great tips from all three cards. I will definitely try them. Absolutely love the colors on your first card.

  4. You made beautiful samples. Great idea to use the foil’s negative space and 1/2 of the panel, looks great!

  5. Hi, Charlene – Your name is – oops! WAS – new to me. No more! These are fantastic cards. Love the elegance and sophistication of the gold one. Love the one with the half-tone background too. I agree w/ you about the layering stencils – and your layered card stencil is gorgeous.

    p.s. Teal is darker than aqua.

  6. Charlene, your cards are beautiful and I especially love the 3 foiling techniques that you shared. Thanks so much for sharing your inspiration with me!

  7. I just got my hot foil machine.
    Can’t wait to get some of the
    foiling plates so I can make
    beautiful cards like these.
    thanks for sharing.

  8. Your cards are wonderful. I am saving my pennies for a foiling machine! So many techniques! Love them!

  9. All of your cards were so gorgeous! So much fun to foil in another color beside gold foil. Just makes the flowers so beautiful!

  10. Your cards are gorgeous! I love the colors, all my favorites. I’m amazed how many different techniques using this set. I haven’t gotten into foiling yet, don’t really have the space for the entire set up. But I am sorely tempted.

  11. Hot foiling is one that I haven’t gotten involved in yet, I do love the look though. Your cards are lovely. Altenew always comes out with lovely new goodies to tempt us with. Thanks for the chance to win😊.

  12. Thank you for the foiling tips and ideas. Love all 3 cards and especially how you used the backgrounds to add interest. Gave me many ideas.

  13. Very pretty cards, Charlene! I don’t have a foiling machine but you are tempting me to get one!

  14. Hi Charlene. The blue foil makes a gorgeous outline. You blend you colors so beautifully. The split gold and white card is so pretty. Thank you for sharing the tip about the solid foil plate for the left-over foil. What a unique idea. The halftone dots card is a cool way to use up you scraps. Thanks for make a the video too.

  15. Oh wow, more reasons to purchase a hot foil machine! LOVE these cards, thanks for sharing the video!

  16. I love the way you used colors that aren’t actual flower colors. Blue and green blooms are beautiful!

  17. Really pretty modern looking cards! I love the way that halftone stencil works for the background! I don’t know how you get the negative of the foiling so perfect? Sometimes I can, sometimes I can’t, but usually the foil doesn’t come off perfectly. Love that card and the look!

  18. Gorgeous cards! I really love the last card with half image gold foiling and half solid plate reverse foil!

  19. Lovely cards! The Hugs card with the dotted background is my favorite. The dots are an unexpected background and that is what I like about it.
