This Lovely Lattice stamp set on Foil sheets with Stampin’ Blends was something I had been thinking about.  The idea of using alcohol markers on foil intrigued me and I wanted to play around with them.  Here is another card I recently made with the Lovely Lattice stamp set, it looks so different than these, and still very lovely!

I used the Lovely Lattice stamp set, a FREE stamp set option with a $50 purchase as a Sale-a-Bration FREE item until March 31, 2019, with any $50 purchase.  I love the look of this set and knew it would work great with the Stampin’ Blends.  It has an Easter basket look at first, and yet provides so many options as a stamp.  I can see it as a birthday, sympathy and even just Thinking of You card.  Maybe even Mother’s Day, too.

I heat embossed the Lovely Lattice stamp on three colors of our foil paper:  silver, copper and gold.  On two of them, I used our Black Embossing Powder and on the third, I used our White Embossing Powder to change it up a bit.  All three of them look so different, I’m really not sure which I like best because they are all so distinctive.

This one on the Gold Foil Sheets, I heat embossed with the White Embossing Powder and this created a totally different look.  Once of the most significant difference in using this was that the color from the Stampin’ Blends was absorbed by the embossing powder if I got the alcohol marker on it in the slightest.  I decided not to be too fussy about it, because it was bound to happen and bleed over.  It ended up looking a bit more water color like in the end.
