Ever wondered how to get beautiful foiling effects without the use of heat? That’s right! No laminator. No special foiling machine!!!! I have a video sharing MANY ways to foil without heat!

Here are some still shots of the projects. Let’s take a look at the first project where I used an Adhesive Pen to foil in this card.
The organic feel of the strokes, the coordinating foiled sentiment from the Altenew Super Scripts Stamp set and coordinating die? I just adore this. This is probably my favorite of the bunch. One more close up:
For the next project, I used a 2 way glue pen to add the foiled horizontal stripes. There are many glue pens on the market that will work for this. Any glue that dries tacky (sticky) will work!
I like the hand drawn look of the foiled stripes, don’t you? The Altenew Watercolor Frames stamp set is a great, versatile stamp set! I love the watercolored images (inspired from real paint pieces) that make a great focal point on the card.
My next cards features some Sticky Tape/Double Sided tape to create a foiled flower. I called this technique “Sticky Tape Die CUtting” lol.
For my last project, I did some double foiling using a flat tip glue pen from Nuvo. Using the flat tip allowed me to get a nice straight line with one stroke. I also used several different color of foils.
I love the look of double foiling. A great way use up those small scraps or negative pieces left over from other projects. And of course, the Frosted Garden stamp set to the rescue to complete this card. Oh! I added a few foiled dots to the center of the florals too! 🙂
I had so much fun making all of these cards! I was inspired from the Altenew Academy Let It Shine: Holiday Edition course! All 6 lessons were so inspiring. I’m making my way thru the final level of becoming an Altenew Certified Educator and am pleased to say I am just a few projects away! 🙂
