HOW TO CREATE FOILED STAMPED CARDS
Happiest Monday friends. 🙂
Today I am ready to start the week with you all and share some fun and fabulous stamping inspiration.
Yes, taking these beautiful stamps and now having the ability to create foiled images using this product has been such a hot and popular technique since it’s debut this past January. If you have not yet seen how amazing this process is you can watch the quick and easy tutorial right here.
Key takeaways from this video are:
- Use 15 ml of toner ink.
- Let the ink sit in the ink pad for 15 minutes covered. You want it to absorb and be nice and “tacky”.
- Once dry run your project through your MINC on the highest heat setting possible. That being 5.
I am absolutely loving the Art Walk paper collection, and was inspired to make some fabulous cards using some of my favourite patterns from the 6×8 paper pad, along with some super smooth white card stock, stamps and foil.
Using the technique demonstrated in the video tutorial, I stamped images onto smooth white card stock using a variety of images. Once dry I ran them through my Minc machine on the highest heat setting, 5. This is very important. It must be the highest heat in order for the toner ink to fully react with the foil application.
As always, the best part. Foil reveal at it’s finest.
This process never ceases to amaze me. Always so incredible every single time. I just love the effect. And can we just talk about those glitter palms for one second??? That foil (which you can find here) looks AMAZING. This is an absolute must have….it is beyond gorgeous with the stamps.
This is a super simple process that does not even require a Minc machine. Simply apply the glue pen to wherever you desire foil flakes to adhere. One you apply the glue, allow for a bit of dry time so that the glue becomes ‘tacky’. Apply foil flakes delicately to the surface and simply using your finger rub into place.
I absolutely love and adore the “mixed media” look to this, and the added shine looks fantastic.
I further embellished my cards with favourite elements from the Art Walk collection.
I hope you are inspired to give this technique an honest try. It takes a little bit of practice and play, but once you start you honestly cannot stop. It is one of the best ways to play and get creative.
Wishing you all a wonderful week.
