It’s Day four sharing my love of Unity but I wanted to incorporate by second love in card making and that’s Thermoweb Deco Foil with Unity Stamp Company toner card fronts. You can simply use a laminator the toner card front and foil to get these looks.
However I was at a crafty retreat with friends this spring and was taught that you can also use Thermoweb Deco Foil & Toner card fronts with a Spellbinders Glimmer Machine and the Pink Fresh Studio Solid Hot Foil Plate let me tell you its a game changer! Heather Hoffman & Lea Lawson discovered this and she has tutorials over on the Pink Fresh youtube channel. I encourage you to watch her video but here is the quick ”sandwich”: Step 1 Pink Fresh solid hot foil plate on the glimmer machine. Step 2 Deco Foil pretty side facing the hot foil plate. Step 3 Toner Card Front toner side down over the Deco Foil. Step 4 place the ”cutting plates” over the Glimmer base (I need a card stock shim in mine it depends on your die cutting machine) and run the whole thing through you dies cutting machine cranking it through slowly. the heat and pressure adhere the foil to the toner panel and its the best results I’ve ever gotten. Thanks Lea for showing me this amazing new way to use Deco Foil.
I used Gina K Inks to blend the spooky scenes the ground color is Moon Lit Fog. The first card uses Plum Punch, Wild Lilac and Eggplant. Then second & fourth card sky is Navy and Tranquil Teal. My favorite is the simplest with that Spooky sentiment the whole panel is blended with Moon Lit Fog ink and then I used a Copic (putty) to color over the ink in certain spots for interest. I would have made more but i used the last of my Wild Garden toner panels don’t worry I have more on order. It’s a gorgeous floral but paired with the Halloween images i think it looks ominous.
I hope you like these Spooky Halloween card with lots of sparkle and shiny foiled goodness.
