I do love creating with foil & finally looked into getting a laminating machine after watching some videos. Fortunately, a friend told me to check Target. At under $20 with free pick-up I couldn't resist! I don't have toner sheets or transfer gel yet, but a Heidi Swapp video showed that you can use embossing paste & that I have! Here's my first attempt using HS Zigzag stencil & Deco Art Rainbow foil.
I got kind of a distressed look & I like it, but will try again for full coverage. Recently I received a gift of Poppystamps Tunnel Tags & Shasta Twigs dies and the Grateful Heart stamp set.
Can't really see it, but both the card front & the twigs are covered in Wink of Stella. I'm entering CropStop, Poppystamps & Word Art Wednesday--thanks so much for the Top 3 last challenge!
I really wanted to use colored cardstock for a background after seeing Stephanie's example for last week's PTI MIM. Again I used PTI Snowflake Flurries stamps & dies.
This time I used silver foil with double sided adhesive on cardstock--no heat required. The ink is Enchanted Evening, but the sentiment is actually heat embossed. I just used my Mini MISTI & stamped with Versamark over the dye ink. Nuvo glitter drops add some sparkle. I'm entering Christmas Card Challenges & HLS Christmas Challenge & Merry Monday.
June already & that means 4th of July is just around the corner! The current PTI MIM challenge is baby wipe inking & one of Ashley's examples was to make stripes.
I have very few reinkers, so it wasn't hard to pick colors: Brilliance Rocket Red & Mediterranean Blue. Love the die from Mix & Mat Flourishes that leaves dots. The small Sketched Stars are foiled using the double sided adhesive technique. Always fun to use products from an Oregon company & this Peddler's Pack sentiment from 1999 is still one of my favorites. Once again, Nuvo glitter drops provide a little sparkle. I'm also entering Retro Rubber & Word Art Wednesday. I've gotten behind in blog reading, but will catch up with you soon. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
