That Gold Stuff


If y'all remember - last week I made a card and titled the post "A Little Late".  Well, this one is definitely a little early!!  Everyone is going Fall and Christmas so I thought I'd jump right on along to Valentine's Day!

The heart and sentiment are from Filled With Love (SU) and I found this Cuttlebug embossing folder recently and figured it'd be good for Valentine's Day - or just a simple love type card. 

Now, on to "that gold stuff"........It's Frantage - a little gold, pink, and white.  I recently purchased  some and I must say it's fabulous!!!!  You kinda sprinkle it on and then heat set it and walla......prettiness!  Not sure this is the type of card it goes on but it's on here anyway because I couldn't wait to try some of it out.  If you'll take a peek at Marilyn's blog, One Stamping Fool, and Tammy's blog, Tammy's Spot you'll see the way they've used it and it's gorgeous! 

Thanks for stopping by.................

Absolutely 'frant'tastic! Love how the gold makes the background pop. Sweet card for Valentine's Day Lynn and thanks for the shout out!

What a terrific card, Lynn. I love that Frantage. I think your card is the perfect application for it. I did check out the other girl's use of it and they did a wonderful job with it also. Have a great day. I saw that a lot of Texas might have rain today I hope you are lucky enough to get some in your area.

Very pretty, and I love that Frantage. Looks like something else that I "need" to have in my craft room.

I love it! What a great way to use the Frantage - I have some and I just mess around with it (as in, make a mess). This is perfect! Now I have to go see what those two got up to :)

OK, I've been reading, seeing, hearing about "Frantage" for weeks now and I guess I'm going to have to try some. Love the gold on this card, Lynn, and that embossing folder is wonderful !

Beautiful card Lynn, I love how the dp on the heart mimics the embossing, very pretty and the splatter of Frantage looks VERY cool with it ;)

I never even heard of Frantage before, but I like it! I love that embossing folder too! Pretty Valentine card!

ooooh! this is FAB! the whole textural, white-on-white C&S design is already awesome; the hit of red is dramatically impactful (as they say in the design trade, lol!) :) and YEAH, the "gold stuff" totally, TOTALLY rocks!!!!!!!! ♥♥♥

Fantastic card. Love the frantage behind the red heart - really makes it pop.

MaryH said...

Clever YOU to get a jumpstart on another holiday with this very fab card. Loved the embossed background with the perky red heart design and banner. I'm just learning about frontage...someone had to 'splain to me what it be. I think it added some nice texture to your card. Will have to find out more about this product, and then find a source. Thanks for the links too. (Yes the repair folks were a trial yesterday. Got me so behind, then when they left, I was in _no mood_ for anything but grumpy. Better today!

Shelly Schmidt said...

OK, I will have to check this out- I saw it on Marilyn's page- it looks fabulous- and looks like you spray it on and it looks fabulous!!! Love your CAS card!

Monica said...

It makes the heart sparkle, Lynn. And the embossing folder is so cute. Haha, so you are one step ahead of all these Christmas card makers. Lol.

Love,

Marilyn said...

Lynn, this is gorgeous and I love you you've used the Frantage. Thanks for the shout out too by the way but wow... I probably wouldn't have thought of using this with embossing but why not... it's great! Isn't that stuff just the best? I wish they made it in quart jars!
