Fabulous Finds Friday: Foiled Again!

I’m loving the new mixed media material offered by Therm O Web,  in collaboration with designers Rebekah Meier and Gina K. Designs. I’ve been a foiling fool! For these cards I’m using just about everything in both of these newly launched lines — the foiling sheets, the pre-made foilable cards, the embossing paste, etc. I especially love the collection of toner-base, ready-to-foil sentiments and backgrounds. These are so easy to use, and great if you don’t have a laser-printer to create your own foil-able prints.

This photo (Ugh! I should have re-shot it!!) doesn’t do justice to the lovely shine of foil, so here are some close-ups:

These cards used the Gina K.™ Designs Foil-Mates™ backgrounds and sentiments. Because these are printed with toner-based ink, all you have to do is cover with foil and run it through your laminator. I die-cut the sentiments using  the gina k.™ designs oval single stitch die set, from Therm O Web and created specifically to match the Foil-Mates™ sentiments. (I love the bonus shapes found there, too!)

I’ll have more examples in my next post — including ways to use the “waste” from the foil!

In the meantime, check out these websites: www.RebekahMeier.com, Gina K. Designs and www.thermoweb.com for more ideas. And this fab foiling video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=votcAZg1XHk&t=25s

  1. Great cards, this looks like such fun to play with

  2. Thanks! I do love playing with this. I tend to do a lot of foiling at once because once I have the laminator out, well, heck, I may as well make the most out of it! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. […] card using foil “leftovers” — the part left behind from my first foiling. (See here, here and here for my earlier foil […]
