Fun with the Fabulous Foil-Mates Blog Hop!!





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.

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 is a card I made for today!

 For this card, I didnt use the Foil Mates actually, lol!  I just used the foil and some score tape!  I LOVE how the foil matches the cardstock perfectly and wanted to show that!  I heat embossed the daisy from the stamp set, Vine and Butterfly , then masked it with some masking fluid.  I then used the inks that are in the Foil- Mates line from ThermOWeb and sponged all around the card base.  I then rubbed off the masking and did a quick color with some pencils.  Not really much to color though, lol!  And I also made a matching envelope! 



 Here you can see a little peek of the inside where I also used scor tape and the foil.  I also added a small strip of the wild Dandelion Foil to the matching envelope.   Just that small touch adds a bit of elegance that the recipient will see before even opening to see the card.

Up first today is Foil Mates Invitations - Wedding.  I made another pocket card!  :D


 This card is a pocket card and the little silver and Turquoise hearts with the eyelet in it  (and I'm just now noticing that I forgot to add the twine in the eyelet! LOL)  is on the edge of the pull out so you can pull it with that.  Here it is pulled out:

I just used the dies to cut circles and layered the single stitch and double stitch that gives it that small edge, which I totally LOVE!! 






Up nexty is the Foil Mates Invitations -- Save The Date.  And I made another wedding invite!  :D


I made a folding card...not sure what the fold is called, but it folds up from the bottom and then down from the top.  The above card is a picture of it closed.  here is one with it opened:


The enclosed removable card has wrapped with tissue paper and the burlap and lace ribbon is like a belly band.  Here is the inside card:

I made wedding invites for my niece a few years back and boy, do i wish I had of had these foil mates!  i heat embossed with gold until I'd never do again...lol!  (I did...LOL)

Here are a few of the projects I have created for today’s hop:

Up first today I have the Foil Mates, Sentiment - True Friend.

 For this card's background I used the Elegant Damask Foil Mate and used the Wild Lilac for the sentiment and then did a rectangle with Grass Green.  I also took the sheer white Fancy Ribbon and used a copic marker on it to make the edges purple to match, LOVE being able to do that with the ribbon!
Close up:




Isnt that little flower cute?!  I used some toner paper and the die and the Wild Lilac foil to make it!  :D


Next is Foil Mates Sentiment -- Wedding/Anniversary.  I decided to do a wedding happy anniversary card:
I went for an elegant look, and LOVE how the gold and that damask just made that type of card for me!  :D  Super simple!
