Here is a photo of the kit we got to work with along with the Happy Everything stamp set:
For my project I wanted to do a little something different with the stamping. Did you know that if you own a foiling machine or laminator, you can actually foil your stamping work?
All you need to do is do your stamping with a very good black ink. Using a stamp positioner like the MISTI tool can really help. If you miss any spots in your stamping be sure to go over it with a marker or a fine tip pen.
Then take your stamped paper and photocopy onto cardstock using a toner based printer or photocopier. Your image is ready for foiling! Note: This should ONLY be for personal use due to copyright, do not share your photocopy images with others.
That is exactly what I did in my project below. You can see the aqua colored foil in the close up photo. I love how it shimmers right along with all the sequins in the shaker card.
I hope my little tip got your creative wheels-a-turnin’! I know that I want to foil ALL THE THINGS now! LOL.
