Make Your Holiday Shine with Foil-Mates™

Hi Everyone and Welcome! :) 
We have some Sparkle & Shine For You!


Today we are sharing some fun projects made with 
Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates™ &
Fancy-Foils™ from Therm-O-Web.

Here are some of the items used 

Enjoy all the sparkly projects
 that the team has created and 
then leave a comment on each blog,  
you will be entered in a chance to
 Win a 
$25.00 Gina K Designs Gift Certificate
To see who won, 
check the Big News Forum at StampTV 
a few days after the hop. 
Here are a couple other projects I made for today:



I also used the Merry & Bright Kit for the stamped Images 
and Die cut word & flowers! 

I used the sticky toner paper to foil a piece with the Radiant Red Foil 
(that I used for the shadow word die on Christmas) and another with the left over piece of the swirls from the Blizzard Foil-Mates™
then ran it through the laminator a second time with a solid piece of foil so the toner would grab the second color of foil. This gives you a two tone background. I used it to make a frame for my ornament! :) 
Are You ready for some more sparkly Inspiration? 
Next Up is Laurie! 
Thank You for stopping by and 
I hope you take a little time to get inky! :) <3


And, all of the new products are now available in 
the What's New Category at Gina K. Designs!

This first one card project,
 I stamped the ornament image with
 Versa Mark Ink & Heat Embossed with 
Gina K. Designs White Embossing Powder on 
a piece of acetate. 
Also foiled a solid piece of Toner Paper with 
Gina's Radiant Red Foil and then used 
the Christmas Word die to cut it out. 
Then layered on a die cut shadow layer of white.

  • Dies from the Merry & Bright Stamp TV Kit 
  • Fancy Foils  - Radiant Red  
  • PeelnStick Toner Sheet by- Therm-o-web

On this cad I made a frame from two of the rectangle single stitched dies and die cut a frame from a piece of foiled stripe from Gina's Ornamental Holiday Foil-Mate pack. The Greeting is stamped in my Misti with Red Velvet Ink and then Inked up the stamp with Versa Mark Ink and used Gina K. Designs Clear Embossing Powder over it, so now it has a nice shine to it!  :)
