More Hot Foiling

Saturday, January 25th, 2020

Hi crafty friends and welcome back.  It’s Sandi here and I decided it was time for some more HOT FOILING.   I combined it with  Gina K Peaceful Floral.  I haven’t used my hot foil machine since before Christmas and I recently purchased the Spellbinders Glimmer Scattered Dot Pattern die as I thought it would make a great background.

Before Diving into the card, just a note:   Raya is offering 10% Off Hot Foil products over in the Scrap ‘N Stamp Store starting today through Jan 30th, get the coupon code at the end of this post.  Thank you Raya!

More Hot Foiling

I also decided to try foiling on card stock vellum (40 lb) to see how it worked and looked, and I think it looks FABULOUS.  This is the 40 lb vellum, often referred to as card stock vellum, I have not tried the lighter vellum, as I think it might pucker with the heat, I’ll give that a go another day, LOL.

 

More Hot Foiling

The card sentiment is also hot foiled.  This is Spellbinders Glimmer Best Day Ever die plate gold foiled onto Gina K Turquoise Sea card stock.

Card details:

  • I die cut a piece of Gina K Turquoise Sea card stock with the Penny Black Leaf Stitched Frames.
  • Next I attached my foiled piece of vellum to the back of the frame before attaching it to my A2 card base.
  • I heat foiled the sentiment and added that with foam squares to add dimension to my card.

  • I used my MISTI to stamp the Gina K Peaceful Floral image onto a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 piece of White card stock.  Using the Misti allows me to stamp a couple of times to get a nice dark outlined.
  • I used the Gina K Amalgam Black Ink for this as it’s waterproof and Copic friendly.
  • Next I colored the image with only SIX Copics:  The flower is done with BG11, BG13, BG49 and the leaves in YG03, YG17 and YG67
  • You may notice a bit of green in the flowers:  I like to take the lightest green and use it for a little highlight in the flowers, I think it really adds life to the image.

More Hot FoilingOnce the floral image was colored I cut it out and used small pieces of foam squares on the back to attach it to the card to again add a bit of depth.

That’s it, a quick and easy monochromatic card, with a pop of wow thanks to my Gemini Hot Foil Machine.
