If it's immobile, foil it!

Hello friends!  If you remember my last post about foiling and daily discussions with myself about not going off the foil deep end.  Well, I lost.  I'm hooked!  I bought a laminator and we've been getting to know one another.

This card uses Jamie Cripps' Happy Birthday Card Two Ways and her flower that can be found on the 3D Sliding Bow Box,  I cut the sentiment from Heidi Swapp's toner sheets.  It cut beautifully from the Cameo, but didn't foil perfectly with my laminator.  It may be that I didn't have hot enough, the foil was from the WRMK Heatwave pen and it may be below average or because Heidi Swapp's toner paper must be exclusively designed to be used only in the Minc machine.  I'm not unhappy with the results - and my sister is going to love it.

This card is Jamie Cripps' Wishing You Well A2 card.  This time I used Silhouette's Double Sided Adhesive sheets.  I cut the sentiment out from that and it worked really well.  I just had a hard time getting the side of the release paper off that I wanted off.  But this technique is no-heat required and works really well.

Lastly, here is Jamie Cripps' 3D Haunted House gift box and a couple of ghosts from various other files by Jamie.  So I didn't do much foiling on this one, but if you look closely, you can see the ghost coming out the center window.  I used Self-Adhesive Vellum that I picked up at Michaels, it's their Recollections brand and it cut very well in the Silhouette.  Take a look at the ghost at the top, I adhered another ghost on the back so it would cover up the sticky part.  Well, dummy me, I didn't think to do mirror image, so it doesn't quite match up but it left sticky eyes/mouth openings on the front so I used Ranger Foil (Vintage) to fill those in.  I love the look!

Now, this photos are on the darker side and not what I really like, but honestly, it's the best way to pick up the foil.

I hope you like my projects and they inspire you.  Also, please scroll down to my Tuesday Morning Sketches post so see another foiling technique using embossing powder.  Thank you for stopping by.
