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.












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 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.  


Ready for more awesome creations?! Just click on the links below for more from Gina and the Cast & Crew:
