Gina K Designs: Share the Love with Foil Mates

Hi Friends! I’m so grateful you’ve stopped by today. Welcome to the Share the Love with Foil Mates  Gina K Designs Blog hop. I’m very excited to be sharing project inspiration and ideas with you today showcasing the New Valentine Foil Mates.  Holy smokes working with foils is fun and SPARKLY. Perfect for all your Valentine and anytime projects.

Gina K Designs Valentine Foil Mates

When I created my projects, I was a wee bit obsessed with the negative space the foil impression created. So, you’ll see I made use of both the foiled and unfoiled images as embellishments for my card designs.

The Be Mine foil image is what was left when I pulled the foil away. It was very easy to take the foil sheet and run it through my die cutter. Hello versatility.

The Gina K Tag Dies fit perfectly around the image in the Lovely Tags Foil Mates set. I’m kinda obsessed with these tag dies because of the stitching. Remember back in the day, we used to break out our sewing machines for papercrafting projects. Please tell me that wasn’t just me? HAHAHAHA! Yep, I did that too!

I love that you can cut up the foil mate sheet after you have heat sealed the foil and use it as patterned paper strips too. Shiny patterned paper.

So, I went a bit crazy with this one. The Blooming Heart Foil Mates set transfers the Bubblegum foil PERFECTO! Love that I could create a complete background layer for my card. And, yep, I most definitely used the negative foil space from my tag (see above) as the “peek-a-boo” sentiment between the layer. Oh, and see that heart stamped on the die cut? That’s from the Hearts and Flowers Set. Hello Hearts. Hello this set is fun!

It’s so shiny and sparkly! I can’t help myself. It makes me smile. And pink it my color jam.

Check out the positive and negatives from the foil transfers. You get double the amount of embellishments and pretties to use on your projects. I used one of the heart dies from the Hearts and Flowers Stamp set to die cut the foil heart in the middle. Shazzam! Project embellishment.
