Share The Love! With Foil Mates!

Hey Y'all!  Glad you stopped by!






Today, we are spreading around some love, Gina K. Design way!  Along with Therm o Web! We have the new line of Gina K Designs from Therm O Web  and its oh so sparkly and full of love for Valentine's Day!  Or anytime you feel like sending some love!  :D 

For today, I have created some super fun and quick cards! I wanted to show how these products work without any stamping!  Here is my first card:

For this card I used Sweet Expressions Foil Mates and Bubblegum Pink Fancy Foils.  I cut the circles using Dies from Gina K and ThermoWeb also.  For the heart background, I did use some white foil that I had from ThermOWeb.  I then took some Distress Oxide ink and sponged it all of the paper, then wiped it off with a baby wipe that wasnt real wet.  IRL, the hearts are a shiny white!  I love how it turned out...Ill have to experiment a bit more though with this method I think!    

Now for my next card I used Background Love and Kisses  and more of the Bubblegum pink Foil  (LOVE it!)

For this card, used some circle dies and some dies I got off of ebay, that take forever to get and I dont think ill order again from there...(another long story I need to tell about!  LOL)  But this die was just so cute to put with these foils and foil mates...I had to use it!  Perfect for my Valentine of the last 36 years!  (hey, REAL men love pink cards!  :D)

Ok, thats all from me for today.   You should have came from 
 So your next hope will be the oh so talented

I love the shaped card. I don't mind ordering from China. It takes a long time to get here but the savings are worth it. And by time I get it I have forgotten what I ordered. So it is like a new surprise present for myself when I open the mail.

D.Ann C said...

Love the shine and especially paired with those two sweeties on the fence! Drat that that wasn't a Gina K die! : )

Annalisa Young said...

I love what you did with the background of the first card! I really thought that was some patterned paper that you found that worked perfectly! I also really enjoy all the textures you got on your cards. Sometimes foiling is too overwhelming for me, because it's all shine, but you strike a really nice balance between shine and matte and a bunch of other textures in between. I'm going to have to try and emulate this in some future cards!

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Simply the best!!!!

Alaska .Kris said...

Sweet and simple!

sammi said...

Gorgeous cards! Great use of texture and I love the scallops!

Kym Maxwell said...

Beautiful cards!! I too have had my experience with buying dies from eBay....I will say this much...wont ever do it again. Literally took 46 days to receive my order, but of course in teeniny print it said from 5-60 days to deliver...uhm that's kind of a big factor that needs to be in big bold print!! Anyway...hopping off my soapbox now. Thanks for the fabulous inspiration and a big congratulations on 36 years!! Big Hugs!!
