I was lucky enough to go to Creativation – the annual Craft and Hobby Association’s show. I met tons of ‘celebrities’ (at least in my eyes) and learned tons of new techniques. My favorite one was from Wendy Vecchi about using foil without any special machines or glues. I was so excited about this that once I was home and back in my craft room, I just had to try it!
- First, stamp the image with embossing ink.
- Then add embossing powder and heat set – just like normal.
- Then, heat the section that will have foil so that it’s soft.
- Press and rub the foil with your fingers until it comes off easily.
That’s it! So easy! And it allows you to re-use the foil over and over again until it’s fully used up. Yes, my mind is blown. I’ll be add this technique to so many of my upcoming projects! Thanks Wendy!
