Inspiration Nation video slideThe live portion of the Inspiration Nation is officially over at StampNation, but the inspiration doesn't stop there!  StampNation events never truly close, because as long as you are a member, you have access to the tutorials and the challenges…oh, and the DT and member projects!

I hope you'll pop over there and check it out if you're not a member already.  If you are, be sure to check out the 7 mood boards to get inspired for your next project.

Deco Foil and Embossing 2Clear Embossing with Deco Foil

I found myself inspired by MissT's card for our third mood board.  Members click here to view her card in this thread.

Deco Foil and Embossing 3After stamping the entire border with the Kaleidecolor ink pad, it was easy to ink just ONE of the geometric images in Versamark and stamp right over the top of the colored ones.  After adding Clear Embossing Powder (make sure it's extra fine EP), heating it, then running it through the laminator, the foil was able to stick to the EP and you get a really awesome result!

Seriously…how much do you love this Star Foil?

deco foil snI used the same foil and two different techniques to add it to my project for today's StampNation video…yes, further inspiration from one of the mood boards from Inspiration Nation!

I also used the GeoBuilders set in a way that I haven't used it before…boy, I love this set!  (pretty good since it's the first one in my line, lol!)

Edited to add:  Mary Kay let me know there is another card on StampNation that is similar to mine!  mkwdood made an amazing card using the same stamps I used here, with a different orientation, and gold glittered some of the individual shapes.  Great minds think alike, eh?  Click here to view her card for Day 1 of Inspiration Nation!
