12 Days of Christmas *BONUS* Gina K Designs

09:00


If anyone tried to order the Merry & Bright Kit yesterday from Gina K, it's back in stock!
Hi Crafters,
I am so excited for this video! The 12 Days of Christmas Bonus Day is for all of you who have been looking at making your own cards this year but can't imagine finding the time. I created 25 cards in an hour and all I needed was a cheap laminator and a few inexpensive supplies. Thank you Gina K for sponsoring today's giveaway - a $50 gift certificate to her store and thank you to Thermo Web for sending me all this fabulous product.



I am showing off the entire Holiday line of Gina K/ThermoWeb's foilmates. You of course do not need every foilmate! Pick and choose what you like and you can save a lot of money but purchasing the coordinating dies that you need.


Each pack of Foilmates contains 12 sheets. That means you can create 24 backgrounds out of each pack or 36 labels or tags from each pack, depending on the pack you purchase. I recommend getting one pack of foils for each pack of Foilmates you purchase. 


I created 25 designs which are all quick, easy and simple to put together. Just throw everything into the laminator, die cut using the coordinating dies and glue! That is all!


Don't waste your foils! You can use bother the positive and negative foils to create cards. Once you put the printed image and foil through the laminator, cut the leftover foil and use it as a background!


Create simple cards by cutting your backgrounds to 4 x 5 1/4 and mounting them onto a card base. Add a die cut and you're finished!


Don't feel like you have to match red with red or white with white. You can mix the foils and add a white background with a red sentiment to make it truly pop!


Want to get a little more create? Grab some die cuts like the ornament die and add some elements to a white card base!


Experiment with borders on your cards, on the right I have a traditional layer that has 1/4 inch white border on each side. On the left I have a 1/2 inch border. Check out the difference! One looks traditional and one looks very clean and simple.


These are the remainder of the cards that I created. I just adore the looks of them, they look professional, are quick and easy and will make anyone smile.

Thank you Gina K for sponsoring today's giveaway!

  15. Love the look of the foils. Great idea about using the negative foil paper, so as not to waste it!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I was happy to see someone use the Scotch laminator. I had given up on using mine to foil as it didn't seem to work very well. I even had images Lazor printed at Staples to try. I so loved the look of all your cards and would try laminator foiling again should I be lucky enough to win. Thanks Gina K for the chance.

  27. Your cards came out beautifully, there is something so Christmassy using foil on cards. Gina K foilmates are beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Justine: have you ever tried foiling a whole 8.5x11 sheet of card stock at once? I see Gina has sheets of small florals designs to foil and wondered if that would work.

    ReplyDelete
  29. These look so easy! And something like my daughter could get into without getting too messy. Thanks for another great post!

  30. Foiling is so fun. But I had no idea that Gina K designs had foilmates. Those are awesome. I don’t have a laser printer, so I buy toner sheets. I love all of her products. They are so intricate and elegant. Thank you for showing us your beautiful designs.

  82. Thank you for showing all the beautiful cards you made, anything to help me save my energy is great. Since getting sick I have had to change the way I do certain artistic things that I love doing. This would really help because I could still give a little of me to the ones that matter most, without jeopardizing my health. Take care Kari Villebrun

  118. Wow!!! I guess I didn't realize how many cards you can get out of those packs! That is super tempting to just bust out all the cards in a couple hours of foiling and gluing. Wonder what the cost per card turns out to be?!? Off to check prices! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  172. Thanks so much for all of the information. I had a pack of the foil mate backgrounds that I bought at a stamp show in July. really had no idea what to do with them. Plus, the info on the laminator was wonderful. I always thought those foiling machines were $100+. Less than $20, I'm in!! I followed your directions and they were PERFECT!! Had excellent results from the start!! Thanks so much for sharing your terrific cards, and getting me "foiling"!! Have a Blessed Holiday season!
