Flamingo Foil-Mates Card Video Tutorial

Many of you may be wondering if the Foil-Mates paper is thick enough for techniques that use water, and the answer is yes. The paper has a very smooth finish and allows you to apply and blend inks easily. On the other hand, it will hold after using water moderately. On today’s card I sprayed water directly to the Foil-Mates background and although at first you might notice some texture on the spots the water touched, once it dries it will have its original smooth finish.

These cards are lots of fun to make, especially because the Foil-Mates background do the hard work for you… All you need to do is add a bit of color! Click below to learn how to make these Flamingo themed Foil-Mates cards!

Final Tips

Foil-Mates are very easy to use. They are black toner ink prints that come ready to use in a pack. One Foil-Mates sheet will give you two A2 card panels and to foil them all you need to do is place a piece of Deco Foil transfer sheet and run it through you laminator. It’s that easy. For better results, Therm O Web recommends adding a cardstock shim under your Foil-Mates sheet, to add more pressure and help the foil transfer evenly to your background. This tip works great for me so I thought I’d share it with you!

That’s all for today. Thanks so much for visiting. Before I go, here is another fun idea using Foil-Mates that I share recently:

New Digital Papers & Stamps: Easy Valentine’s Cards with Deco Foil + Graciellie Design

When you have limited time and you love to craft, that’s when digital stamps and papers come in handy! This week I felt so inspired by our brand ambassadors. They are wonderful designers and they have created stunning projects all month long. (If you’re curious about their work please visit our Facebook page to see what they have been sharing lately!)

I wanted to make something pretty with our new digis, but didn’t have much time to play… So I came up with this card design which is super cute and extra quick to make. To create this card:

1. Print the distressed floral stripes pattern from our new Pink & Blue Watercolored Digital Papers. I sized them in 5″x 7″ prior to printing using the printer’s software. That will allow you to print to panels in one cardstock sheet.

2. Next, rip a wide piece of the printed sheet so you can fit it across a 4″ x 5 1/4″ white card panel. Adhere it and cut the excess along the edges with scissors.

3. Print the flowers and the Hello Friend sentiment from the set Friends like You, using a laser printer. In this case I printed the flowers on white cardstock and the sentiments on vellum.

Note: You can take your images to an office / paper store and print as many sheets as you need.

4. Use your favorite Deco Foil sheets to foil the flowers and sentiments. All you do is cover the image with a piece of Deco Foil Transfer Sheet and run it through a laminator.

5. Use pigment inks and a sponge dauber to add color to the flower digi and fussy cut it using scissors. Click here to see a tutorial on this foil resist technique.

6. Use a heart die cut to cut the foiled sentiment.

7. Put your pieces together and finish off your design with ribbon and/or other embellishments of your choice.

Supplies: Friends Like You Digital Stamp Set / Pink & Blue Watercolored Digital Paper Pack / Laser Printer (for digital stamps) / Inkjet Printer (for patterned paper) / Gina K. Designs Fancy Foils™ 6″ x 8″ • Jelly Bean GreenDeco Foil™ Transfer Sheets • Aqua / Colorbox Pigment Inks PaintBox in Love / Distress Oxide ink in Salty Ocean / Sponge ink applicators / Vellum / White Cardstock / Laminator / Sticky Dot Mini Runner / Deco Foil™ White Foam Adhesive / Heart die cut / Evolution Advanced die cutting machine / RRR Satin Ribbon with Silver Metallic Edges Assortment – Pink and Purple / Paper Temptress Sky Blue Crepe Cardstock / Paper Temptress Pink Basis #80

These cards took no time! I love how easily you can add color to a foiled image with simply sponging some ink! That truly saves you time. The papers and foiled details do a lot for this design, but I especially love adding transparencies -such as vellum- to my cards!

Making Valentine’s Day Cards with Gina K. Designs & Therm O Web

Welcome to my first video tutorial of the year! I’m glad you made it here! I’m sharing a new project with Therm O Web… A playful and fun set of Valentine’s cards. I’ll show you how I created them using just 1 Foil-Mates sheet, 1 Fancy Foil sheet, some cardstock and ink!

You’ll notice that each card idea came to life as a consequence of the scraps I was left with by the previous card… I love that! I love that you can stretch your supplies and use every single piece to create something pretty! Also, I used dye ink as watercolor to create these fun splattered background… I may have been feeling adventurous while preparing this tutorial as I did as much as I possibly could with just a few supplies!

This Valentine’s sentiment is from my digital stamp collection and it comes in a set called Floral Heart & Banners.
