Review | Ranger Foil Cardstock

Foil-CardstockI love working with Ranger products, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review this product. Ranger Silver Foil Cardstock has a shiny, mirror-like quality, and it’s sturdy enough to run through an embossing machine (such as the Big Shot).  You can use mediums like alcohol inks and acrylic paints to embellish its surface.

I decided  to go ahead and bring out my Big Shot – along with some dies, embossing folders, and some Prima chalk inks – to see how well they worked with the foil cardstock. You can see the results in the photos that follow.

I started by embossing with my Big Shot & a Sizzix embossing folders set (Birthday Congrats and Thanks) by Eileen Hull. It embossed perfectly, every little detail, and I only ran it through the machine once.

Ranger Foil EmbossedNext I tried die cutting stars using Spellbinders’ Shapeabilities “Jewel Treasures” set by Julianna Hudgins. They came out great, and I had no problem taking them apart.

079After die cutting the stars, I decided to use some of my Prima chalk ink in Blue Jay and Pastel Blue. Below are two photos showing the stamping on the starts. I love how it worked great, dried fast and all without the need of the heat gun.  I left the outline removed from the die cut in plain silver. These will make great embellishments on any paper crafting project.

I love to create different types of projects, not limiting to just one type allows me to really get creative and to continue learning. I love using products in as many ways as possible, I guess you can say I don't like routines, this would explain why you can see all the different types of projects, materials I love to work with.
