How to Mix Foil Products with Stamps

Today Melanie shares this beautiful monochromatic design using Foil -Mates products, which coordinate perfectly with our fabulous inks and cardstock. Stampers will love mixing these new foils with their premium quality clear stamps to produce eye catching, interesting cards that are on trend and oh so fancy!  She shares various tips and techniques  in this demonstration including how to make the script words and embellishment elements from Twine Time and her Pretty Patterns 2 borders virtually pop off the card with a simple drop shadow.  Please enjoy!

These are really beautiful and look so easy.  I think I prefer the turquoise one better.

Love this card. Such a pretty color. Love the foil dots. TFS

Very pretty thank you for sharing.  I have a little tip to share not to do, I had a little of the foil sticking out of the parchment paper and it stuck to the laminator heating element and rolled the whole project around the heating element.    Needless to say my laminator is toasted now.   Make sure foil is not sticking out.....

I love this Melanie!  <3  The black is pretty, but I'm really lovin' the monochromatic one!  Thank You for sharing and reminding me of shadowing! <3

Very pretty and I do believe I like the one you did with the turquoise ink better, they are both beautiful!
