Jumping on the Foiling Bandwagon

I have been interested in trying foiling ever since I started stamping many years ago, but the cost was just too prohibitive.

I have recently become aware that you can foil using your laser printer and a household laminator - since I have both of these items, I just had to give it a try!

1st attempt was a total failure - I don't think the laminator was hot enough.

2nd attempt - was still not good, so I tried using an iron LOL

3rd attempt - running it through twice - still not a very good result - it was still 'bitty'
so some internet searching happend

Finally got some great results (even though the photo does not show it very well)

So I made up some cards using some graphics from Creative Market

Thank you card

Heartfelt Sympathy

Sadly, I was in need of another sympathy card, this time for another member of my camera club who was also the previous President, Allan, who unexpectedly lost his Father.


This beautiful shimmer cardstock was from Blue Edge Crafts, the two step stamps from Stampin' Up (Heartfelt Thanks) - stamped with green ink, then gold embossed.

I wanted to keep it simple, as it was for a male but I also wanted to be a little creative as his mother is a cardmaker too, and I felt she would appreciate the handmade touch.

It is approaching time to replace my Stampin' Up inks - they have only lasted 10 years!  So it just goes to show ..... you buy the best you can afford, store them correctly and they will reward you with years of service! ;)
