01-26-2012, 06:19 PM
hello Elena , You are welcome.
I have sent you a PM>
Thanks for joining.

01-26-2012, 06:56 PM
Here are two of my cards. The background is alcohol inks, scan didn't pick up the brightness of the color in the foil.

01-27-2012, 03:59 AM
Yess Elena,
This looks good.
i am curious how they are in real.
I must have patience some days:)

01-27-2012, 04:29 AM
What a great swap topic - I got my aluminum foil out and experimented - oh it was so much fun. I got 3 cards completed but I want to make one more so the host has a little present. Please sign me up and I will probably get my last ATC done tomorrow and will post them in the forum. Please send your address in a pm - my cards should all be ready very soon.

01-27-2012, 01:14 PM
Very cool ICraft!
Welcome and I will sent you my adress.
I am sooooo...curious!

01-28-2012, 04:19 AM
I really loved this topic! It was so much fun and interesting. Here's a little peek and I will mail them out on Monday. Thanks for hosting such a great swapl It's about time I found something really awesome to do with my Sizzix embosser.:yes:

p.s. The color on the Faith ATC is way off - the foil background is actually fuscia.

01-28-2012, 07:06 AM
Fabulous cards Elena and ICraft! The returns for this swap are going to be awesome. great idea alisl.

01-28-2012, 07:12 AM
LOOOOVE your abstract Joss, can I have all 4 of them????? Dreaming!

01-28-2012, 10:35 AM
Wow Icraft! If I don't get one of yours in the returns, we MUST have a private trade between us!

01-28-2012, 09:29 PM
Glad you liked my cards - they were so fun to make! I found that aluminum foil is a great medium to use in an embosser and for alcohol inks.

The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of using unconventional items in our art work. Great job to our host alisl for challenging us in this fun, creative way.

01-29-2012, 01:28 AM
Wow! Joss and ICraft have some fabulous cards up. I hope one of them comes my way.

01-29-2012, 07:08 AM
Wow, I Craft Also thanks for showing us your cards in this thread.
And what a response:!!!
yes there are great artists in thies swap.
Years ago I got a Cuttle bug and we have ( in the past) a yahoo group for ideas.
So i thought to use this allu-technic in the CB. And using ink with it.
It's a so nice technic.
Maybe we have more ideas and show it in this thread.
Thanks all of you for the reaction.
I like this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And thanks for the compliments for the host ( I blush)

And...Miloccpep, do you join:):)???

And maybe sabrinalouisemiller...you are not only a lurker .I think when you are beginning with the allu-foil you are quickly a player in this swap:):)

03-10-2012, 05:23 AM
My cards arrived yesterday as well - Thanks to mariloupatch, Ibus, and tekamarie for great cards. And to alisl for hosting. Will do reps and iTrader later when I have some "free" time.

03-10-2012, 05:27 AM

Really? I usually put a label on the back with my info on - I though I remembered doing that for these as well, though it was a rather busy week, so I suppose it's possible I missed doing it this time... Apologies for that!


03-10-2012, 10:51 AM
No Kate, it's me who has to apologize. You did sign your card, as you say, by sticking on a label. What I didn't realise was that Alisl had popped in an extra card from her :embarrassed:

Thank you very much for the gorgeous card Alisl :)

03-10-2012, 11:46 AM
Thanks for hosting this dynamic swap. And thanks for the cool hostie gift too.The returns were of an excellent standard. Reps are going to:

03-10-2012, 12:55 PM
O yes KatelNorth you did it gooed!!
I thought: ow Ibus has made a little mistake:):)
My background as a gift I put it on the back of your card.
so Ibus thougt that your card wasnot signed:)
But it's clear now!!

And Joss, Thanks for let me know and that you like your returns and give them rep.points.
I am glad with the iTrader :)!!From all of you!

03-10-2012, 02:38 PM
Sorry if your rep is a garbled comment from me, for some reason it jumps back to the middle of a sentence and I only noticed as I hit Enter.

It's driving me nuts :skeptical:

03-10-2012, 06:30 PM
:):):) Yes I see:)
Strange but it's not a problem!
Thank you for the rep.point!

03-11-2012, 05:24 AM
No Kate, it's me who has to apologize. You did sign your card, as you say, by sticking on a label. What I didn't realise was that Alisl had popped in an extra card from her

LOL, don't worry. As it happens, when I first got my cards, I also thought someone had sent an unsigned double sided card - alisl's card fooled me too. I should have thought of that when I saw your message. Just glad to hear I am not totally losing my mind!!

03-14-2012, 03:01 PM
Got my Aluminum Foil beauties today. Thanks to Joss, ICraft and Ibus for the cards and to our Host, Alisl for hosting.

03-14-2012, 04:37 PM
