GIU Day 5 more foiling

It's my last day of the Unity GIU week of posting.  It has been so fun- thanks to everyone for such wonderful and encouraging comments!!!  I have also had so much fun creating with foils- I had most of the supplies already- just spent about $13.00 for the week for the foiling supplies !


  I saw THIS tutorial by Gracie of Gracielle Designs, and was smitten!!!  I ordered the Rebekah Meier  Mixed Media tape and the Mixed Media Medium.  (You do NOT need a laminator when you use this).
  I used Distress Spray Broken China , then applied Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress inks.  I stamped snowflakes from the Joy Girl kit in white ink, black ink and Chipped Sapphire ink.  I added drops of White Ranger paint and silver paint to the background.
  The mixed media medium dries clear, so once dry, I wrinkled up the foil (iridescent- not sure of brand, Silver and gold) and dabbed them onto the three snowflakes.
  I stamped Christine Girl with Black Nuvo Hybrid ink and colored her with Copic markers. I fussy cut it out.   I added Silver Mirror cardstock (Sweet Stamps) on the Teal cardstock, then applied the canvas Mixed Media Strips.  Oh, how I love this!!! Next, I added the fussy cut and colored image.
  I stamped the sentiment in Teal, then in Versamark. I embossed it with Stardust (shimmery) embossing powder. I added Liquid Applique for a puffy look to the edges of the shirt, skirt and hat.

 *I added Decofoil transfer adhesive by painting it onto the red snowflake she is holding and the flourish at her feet.  Once dry, I added the foil.......  * another way to use foil- paint it on just the area of the stamp where you want it.

One more card using the toner sheets.....  I had to try using these since I have 3 packages of them...lol  You cut your die using the toner sheets and run them through the laminator.  You can do it with small dies or large dies......


  I used this large die by Die-Versions. Cut the die and then foiled it- thru the laminator-so easy and stunning!


 This is so pretty IRL!  I added a sentiment from the Woodland Festivities kit.  I dabbed on Decofoil transfer gel to the stamp, stamped it, let it dry then foiled it.  I sponged over the foiled sentiment with distress inks.  I fussy cut it out and added it over the bow.

I made a Splitcoast listing of foiling techniques.  Please stop by and add any new techniques- would love to see what you have done!!!

Both of your cards are so pretty. I love the Angie girl holding the ornament. The teal background is so awesome with the red. The second card is really intricate and beautiful. I am going to have to buy some of the supplies I need to make cards inspired by you this week. Thank you so much.

My comment disappeared for moderating, but I think I called you Lisa.
Did I call you Lisa, Shelly? Do you mind? You know me and names!! Normally Hammy keeps me straight, but this is his bowling night so I'm on my own and that's what happens! Sorry! ❤Hugs, Darnell
