More Fun with Fabulous Foil-Mates...

Hello and happy day!

Hope you've enjoyed the fabulous Foil-Mates Collection that we showcased at the Gina K. Designs blog hop? Where have these foils been all my life? They are super fun and I'm so excited to show you another way of using them....




Gina posted THIS VIDEO the other day and I'm telling you I was hooked immediately!!! I had to get my fingers on the Deco Foil Transfer Gel.....OMG...I love this stuff!

For this card I chose the sentiment from the True Friend Collection. I simply cut it with the Single Stitched Oval Die. FYI...I did not foil the sentiment...I kept it black since my intend was to use a  Pink & Black color combo...just to have a bold contrast ;) !!!

I don't have many stencils, so I used one of my PTI ones....I applied the Deco Gel according to Gina's video and voila...after letting it dry I ran it through my laminator foiling it with Passionate Pink. At last I added a matching Ribbon and some Silver Pearls.

Hope you have a chance to try these fun Foil-Mates yourself...I know you will love them too!

Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my card today!!! Wishing you a great remaining week! See you again soon!

Gina K. Designs - Fun with Fabulous Foil-Mates Blog Hop

Happy Monday! 

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. 

Now it's time to 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! 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....
