Im back with a brand new post for all of you. Well my latest obsession is Foil! I love it! It just adds the perfect bling to any project! I'm going to share few ways of using foils so lets get started!
1) MINC MACHINE
The easiest way to add foil is using a Minc Machine! You can print out your designs using a Laser printer. You can also get designs printed from local printing shops and add foil to them.
The minc machine comes with few pre printed pieces for you to use. All you have to do is - switch on the machine, press the golden button and press it till the light moves front of no.2 once it changes from red to green means the machine has heated and is ready for your use. Place your paper in the plastic folder add the foil on top - make sure its always shiny side up no matter what method of foiling you are using.
Feed it into the machine
the rollers push the folder out of the machine
And voila its done!
2) USING DOUBLE SIDED ADHESIVE SHEETS
The next way is using double sided adhesive sheets. Ive used Elisabeth Crafts adhesive sheets for today's tutorial.
Peel off one layer of the non stick sheet from the adhesive sheet
Place it on top of your cardstock and burnish well.
Next you can die cut or use directly as you like.
Peel off the top layer from the die cut
Add your foil and burnish well
As you remove the foil you'll see your piece is ready!
Foiling die cuts has never been this easy!!
3) USING ADHESIVE TAPES TO MAKE BACKGROUNDS USING FOIL
Cut a piece of paper and add the tacky tape is any design you like. You can make stripes, checks, horizontal stripes and much more!
Next i've used 2 colours of the foils here for the background
Just place your foil and rub slightly and peel off and you are done!
Here's a card i created using the background we just created! The flowers and leaves used in this project are made from the Prima adhesive rub-ons Keep reading i've shared the tute for those :)
4)FOILING USING STICKY EMBOSSING POWDER
This is a great way of using foil for your stamps! The effects can vary depending on the papers you use for this effect!
I've selected this drops stamp for this demo
Stamp it to the cardstock using Versa mark ink
Add the sticky embossing powder to it
And heat set it. Place your foil as soon as you heat set it. You need to work very quickly in this method cause the foil will not adhere if the melted powder is not hot enough!
5) USING ADHESIVE RUB-ONS
Take a piece of carstock, cut the design from the sheet you like , peel it and press it to your cardstock
The sheet comes with a wooden stick use it for burnishing your design. You will notice the colour of the rub on will change once it is properly adhered to your base.
Peel of the plastic sheet and add your foil sheet
Burnish the foil using the same stick
Peel it off and you are done!
Here's a card i made using the rub ons!
