Foiling Techniques!

Hi everyone, it’s Shari here with some fun foiling techniques to use on your cards.

I thought I’d take this opportunity to show you a few was to use thermal foils from Thermo Web and Heidi Swapp with a laminating machine ( I used my small Minc) and a quick non thermal technique with a glue stick.

My first example uses thermal foiling.  Thermal foiling is a process of using a reactive foil with a heating element machine such as a laminator or Heidi Swapps Minc machine.


I was thrilled when I found Toner Sheets from Thermo Web where I could use my die cuts and foils! Talk about exciting! This card also uses a double foiling technique and some black foil on a die cut.


Have you tried foiling with a glue stick to create a quick background? It’s really easy! For this I used the regular Vintage Foil from Ranger.


I also traced the circles of a stencil with the Heidi Swapp Minc toner pen to create a background on a die cut heart.


I have put together a video explaining how to use a laminating machine and also show you how to do that quick glue stick and foil background. You can watch the video below or on our YouTube channel.
