...Make Your Holiday Shine with Foil-Mates™


Good morning folks and welcome to our Holiday blog hop - today the girls at Gina K designs are showing you how to make your Holidays shine with Foil-Mates™

My post is a little pic heavy so I'm keeping the ramble to a minimum, but the products I used are listed below and you can scoop them all from HERE at the Gina K. Designs store:

 Holiday Flora Foil Mates
Tag Tidings Foil Mates
Onamental Holiday Foil Mates
Festive Labels Foil Mates
Radiant red Foil
Glittering Green Foil
Decorative Tag Die Set
Decorative Label Die Set

I adore how everything co-ordinates, it makes it soooo super easy to create pretty things so quickly! My card above features one of the larger label designs from the Festive Labels Foil Mates

I foiled it in that glorious red shade before layering it onto two different backgrounds that I made with the Ornamental Holiday and Holiday Flora Foil Mates. I used plain black card for matting and filled in around the outer area of the label with a black marker to make my large label co-ordinate with the black mats. It was super simple, but very effective!



I created a little Holiday packaging for my next project and I wanted to show you a neat way to incorporate those pretty foils into other areas using double sided tape. The pics are pretty self explanatory, but basically I used strong double sided tape to add to co-ordinating striped to my plain red tin. I picked up the stripe design from the background tag that I had foiled with the ornamental holiday candy stripe Foil Mate sheet. Here's a series of pics to show you how:


Start with a plain tin, or box.


Add your design with double sided tape.

 Peel off the top of the tape.


layer the foil onto the sticky tape, colour side up. Smooth it well.


Peel off the foil to reveal your foiled design - I went for a tone on tone look with red on red.



Add your tag. you're done! Custom packaging.


I die cut the tags with the gorgeous Decorative tag die set, I'm loving the tags in this set. The label sentiment is from Tag Tidings and was foiled with the Radiant Red foil. I sure hope you like what I did with the foils, they are super easy to work with!

Hi everyone! Gina K and the team have received such amazing feedback on the new Foil-Mates, Fancy Foils and dies that we have decided to put together a special hop for you today! This blog hop is a blend of a video blog hop featuring tutorials from Gina K and a few members of the team and a traditional blog hop featuring beautiful cards from other members of the team. 

Over the past few weeks, the Foil-Mates products have been flying off the shelves at Gina K Designs. Please be assured that if they are out-of-stock, they will quickly be back on the shelves again soon. In fact, Gina just stocked the shelves with a fresh batch of Foil-Mates, Fancy Foils and dies and more will be on the way.

If you are new to Foil-Mates, they are used to step-up the shimmer and shine in your card projects! Creating cards is never more easy and beautiful when you work with this new line of foil products. From beautiful pre-printed Foil-Mates, to stunning colors of Fancy Foils, when you combine them together the outcome is stunning! Discover how many various combinations of different cards and invitations you are able to create with Gina’s Foil-Mates products. With many of Gina’s most popular signature colors now available in foil, coordinating with Gina K Designs card stock and ink has never been easier!

We would like to thank Therm O Web for being such a great partner in the Foil-Mates line of products.






Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog. We will be selecting one lucky commenter at the end of the hop and that person will win a $50 Gina K Designs gift certificate!

...New Foil Mates from Gina K and Thermoweb!

Folks There's a blog hop happening at Gina K designs right now to highlight the fabulous new goodies that Gina has created in association with ThermOWeb™...you might wanna go see... here's a few pics, but go check out the hop:

 


These background designs are so fun and can be used for all different occasions! You can also customize them with water based inks like the Gina K. Designs ink cubes. You can also use watercolor paints, alcohol and water based markers, and more prior to adding your foil. So each project can be unique!

There are two different types of focal image sets.

The Sentiments are perfect for Birthdays, Weddings, Anniversaries, Friendship and Support.

The Invitations are great for Birthday Parties, New Years Eve get-togethers, Retirement Parties, Weddings, Showers and of course, Save the Dates! What bride wouldn't love a foiled Save the Date card or Wedding invitation? And you can use the inside FOIL-MATES™ pieces for all the details or you can create them yourself using a laser printer and foil them to match when using the Gina K. Designs Fancy Foils™ or other Deco-foil™ products!

I love the foil colors in this collection!



Here are many of the cards Gina made for the FOIL-MATES™ line.
