Happy Wednesday! The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you back for our third day celebrating the new line of Foil-Mates products with Gina K Designs and Therm O Web, now available at www.ginakdesigns.com. We are so excited to show you our projects and inspire you to jump into the foil craze! Please enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog. We will be selecting one lucky commenter at the end of the hop from a combination of all three days of comments and that person will win a $50 Gina K Designs gift certificate!

Ready for more foil inspiration? Today we are featuring Wedding and Save the Date sets. 



Ack, so pretty!!!  If foil had been around back when I got married (well, and if I'd also been cardmaking back then, that came three years later!!) I'd have made my own invites, sooo gorgeous!!  Maybe we need to do a vow renewal, lol!

I chose not to foil the Save the Date image (die cut with the single stitched rectangle) because it just looked so sharp in black, you can leave these gorgeous elements foil-less!  

I added some adhesive rhinestones to the wheels, which gives nice texture and looks really great with the Silver Sequined foil! I still can't get over how these printed foils look like solid color one way and then all these other colors pop out form the other, see the silver on bottom and rainbow at top? it's the same foil, same piece! Red Velvet die cut heart is popped up over the little flourish.



So many of our Gina K. stamps look amazing with these patterned Foil-Mates! Here I stamped two of one of the rose bud images from A Year of Flowers 3  in GKD Black Onyx ink on Red Velvet cardstock to match the card base, and then just added a little DR6 for shadows and cut out and popped up.  LOOK at how gorgeous those red foil roses look shining up through that black ribbon!  Looks *just* like burn out velvet!! I die!!

And finally here is a simple card using that negative piece of the foil form the previous card and spray adhesive once again! Easy peasy!
I am showing how to make these two RED cards in an upcoming video!  "Foil once, use twice!" lol That's my new motto!  Be sure to stop back by!  These cards just make me wanna go eat a slab of red velvet cake. Right. NOW! Who's with me? :)

To recap all the products in these samples from the Fancy Foils line, I used Silver Sequins and Red Velvet.

Yes! Renew your vows...do you have a special number Anniversary coming up? I like the rhinestone wheels and the rainbow the sequined foil makes...the sequined is my favorite and lucky I got those two because I am sure it will sell out first. The roses look amazing with the foil and the ribbon is so pretty...such an elegant card. I also love that we can get 2 for 1 with the foils...I will look forward to you video!
