We are well into the ThermOWeb and LDRS Creative collaboration week and I hope you’ve seen some fabulous inspiration! Today I’m sharing how you can foil your stamped images. It’s easy to do and the results are 10x more stunning than traditional heat embossing!
Foil Your Stamped Images with Deco Foil and Embossing Ink
Foil Your Stamped Images Video Tutorial
Now let’s foil! I heated up my laminator during the time I was stamping and heat embossing to make sure it was good and hot. I used Gold Deco Foil Transfer Sheets and cut a piece to be slightly larger than my stamped background. I placed the Gold Deco Foil “pretty side” up over my heat embossing and placed both the foil and the background into a carrier sheet and ran it through my laminator.
I ran the piece through my laminator twice just to make sure that the foil fully transferred. The heat and pressure from the machine cause the embossing powder to re-melt and squish just a bit. That’s why I find finely detailed images to work best for this technique. I peeled back the Gold Deco Foil Transfer Sheet and fell in LOVE with the background! The results are MUCH shinier and much more stunning than traditional heat embossing! And just think of the foiling possibilities with this technique! Now don’t throw away the negative piece of foil! We’ll use that in just a moment.
I trimmed down the panel and matted it with green cardstock and added those pieces to a white card base with iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive. I added a white die-cut Miss You sentiment and heat embossed a Wave Ribbon Stack sentiment from LDRS Creative. You can really see the difference in the heat embossing and foiling in the video!
The negative piece of Gold Deco Foil was just as pretty as the positive piece and I just couldn’t wait to use it! Usually, I set the negative pieces of foil aside for future use, but I thought I might as well use it since I had my supplies out!
I used a pine green piece of cardstock and covered it with an iCraft 6×6 Easy Cut Adhesive Sheet. This fully covers my cardstock in adhesive allowing me to place the negative piece of foil on top and trim away the excess for an instant background! And WOW is it shiny!
I finished this card off the same way I did the first. I used iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive to adhere the Miss You Die Cut and Gina K Designs White Foam Tape to adhere to the heat embossed sentiment strip.
I hope you’ve been enjoying the collaboration week! It’s not over yet! Make sure you come back tomorrow for more inspiration!
