I've found my foil, sequins and TLC Expression dies for today's projects. You will find the YouTube video tutorial at the https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VwJS45iEYI channel but if you like to learn by step out tutorials, I've included a quick step by step instruction list to help you through the process.
You've got to give this foil a try! It adds the perfect little glimmer and shine to the simplest project!
Just LOOK at that foiled background! Mod Swirls! It's super shiny, intricate and simply marvelous on this card with just the TLC Expressions "smile" die and some embossing to finish it off!
Step 1. I use some Reactive Paint by daubing it onto the stamp very lightly with a sponge
Step 2. Stamp onto card stock and allow it to dry thoroughly (be sure to wash stamp off immediately)
Step 3. With a very hot lamination machine, place a shim paper down first in the lamination folder, then the stamped card stock (dried reactive paint up then the transfer foil with shine side up.
Step 4. Run it through the laminator
Step 5. Emboss your sentiment onto some vellum or clear acetate and adhere it to card.
Step 6. Cut the TLC Expressions die and adhere it to the vellum and decorate with some embellishments!
That's as Quick and Crafty as it gets! The background is a visual pleasure and the die just puts a smile on your face! The two products work really well together and each hold their own on a project! Another mention of the sentiment that was embossed onto the Vellum was one of the Bits and Bobs stamps from the Growing Garden set in the store under the TLC Inspired collection.
I hope you try this technique, you're going to LOVE the results! Until next time,
