Stenciled and Foiled Cards

Got to spend some "crafty time" today and have a couple of cards to share.  For the first card, I did a background using Ken Oliver Color Bursts on watercolor paper.  Next I stenciled a leaf background on top of the color burst background using texture paste.  I added green glitter to the texture paste before I applied it to the stencil.  Not sure my photograph shows the glitter in the paste but trust me it is there....AND it is pretty.  (Wink.)  I used some stamps by Penny Black and colored the images with alcohol markers.  I die cut the word sentiment out of yellow fun foam.  Happy to be adding this one to my card stash because I never have enough birthday cards.  These party animals want to join these challenges:

Mod Squad Challenge (Stencil Your Background)
Double D Challenges (Watercolor Mood Board)
Fab 'n' Funky (Just Add Ink)
Allsorts (Use Yellow)
I foiled a pineapple with gold foil on black cardstock using the Foil Quill and Silhouette Cameo 3.  I used the standard Foil Quill tip.  The design is from the Silhouette Design store.  The sentiment is a die cut cut from gold foil cardstock (Recollections brand at Michael's).  The Foil Quill did a great job with this pineapple design.   I added a gold metallic bow for a finishing touch.  I have a hard time making metallics look good in a photo but in person this card SHINES.  :)  This pineapple will be standing tall at:

As always, thanks for stopping by and stay crafty!  :)
