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 from a combination of all three days of comments and that person will win a $50 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop. Ready for some inspiration?
Here are a few of the projects I have created for today’s hop:
I received by Deco-Foils while I was recuperating from surgery, so I was unable to participate in the first blog hop. I have slowly gotten back into creating. What I have learned is that deco-foils are amazing. Imagine your husband (whom refers to your craft room as your CRAP room) saying "WOW! That's really cool", when you take the foiled images out of the laminator. Yes, they are that amazing. The other thing I learned is that they are really hard to photograph. The pictures do not to it justice! Seriously! Apparently I was in a turquoise mood, so I forced myself to play with pink too! (twist my arm). Here are the items which I created (with links on my sidebar to the stamp sets from Gina K. which I used on the projects).
First card with the incredible turquoise sea deco-foil and card stock. I used delicate damask stamps on the background and then foiled the sentiment with the turquoise sea foil.
I don't know if this is legal in crafting corners, but this negative image sat in my scraps and I decided to use it (it's REALLY hard to photograph), but I think it looks really cool next to the turquoise sea deco-foil striped image
Here is some more of the turquoise sea deco-foil striped image next to the sentiment (which I left unfoiled). Pretty clean & simple.
This passionate pink deco foil on the True Friend sentiment (I am sorry, it is so hard to photograph). I stamped the background with Fabulous Fleur De Lis.
Vicky mermaid looks perfect next to the polka party foiled in turquoise sea deco-foil. She was colored with spectrum noir markers!
I just love her, playing with sea flowers!
